Description

Hey!

Here's my first gaming PC that I've ever built. So far, I have the cpu overclocked to 4.3ghz (auto voltage) which is sitting at approximately 77C on Cinebench testing and around 45C ish on idle.

From an aesthetic stand point, I think it looks clean, but could definitely use new cables. The only problem I have really is with Thermaltakes software to control the AIO and fans... it sucks. Always glitching, sometimes only have the RGBs on the fan work, sometimes they all work, it's always a mess.

Performance wise, everything runs smoothly on max settings 1080p. Absolutely no issues there.

I'm using a 27" curved 144hz monitor from AOC and I'm content for now.

Thank you! I'll definitely get around to posting more photos. Hopefully I can find a day when the Thermaltake AIO and fans can cooperate and give me the color combo I want ;P

Thank you! Definitely going to be updating it in the future. Some cable mod cables, more front fans and another rear exhaust fan for starts!

Hey! Yup it's a 1920x1080. I think the cheapest curved 27" 144hz 1ms refresh rate that I could find. It's the AOC Gaming C27G1

this looks awesome! Love the sci fi vibe here! I think the liquid cooler rlly ties it together.

Thanks! Once I get the custom loop situated in there, I'm hoping it'll push that sci-fi vibe a lot further!

If you don't mind me asking some questions. I'm going for my first build and i'm trying to find something somewhat cheap and easy. And i'm trying to be super extra sure about everything. And i kind of like the way the build looks as well.

Did you need to buy anything else outside of this build?

Why did you go with a ryzen 5? Was wondering if there was there was that big of a difference besides price compared to a ryzen 7?

Can this build as is use a ryzen 7 over the 5?

Hey, I don't mind at all!

Everything that's on the build list there is exactly what is inside of the PC at this point. Nothing else bought and put into it except for the Funko Pop Venomized Iron-Man of course lol

I went with a Ryzen 5 because for one, it's cheaper, and two, I don't need this PC as a workstation or for much rendering.. essentially I don't do a lot of tasks that require a lot of multi-processing in which you'd benefit with a Ryzen 7 (8 core-16 thread).

You can however use this exact same build and utilize a Ryzen 7.

That being said, I wouldn't recommend this in it's entirety. The motherboard that I'm using is complete overkill and super unnecessary and very expensive. I'd recommend going with another x470 or even a B450 Tomahawk or something, depending on your needs and you'd even have more money left back for a better graphics card, ie. RTX 2070

Hope this helps!

big *** cooler and a lot of mony for 200-350 Mhz

The cooler is just a 240mm nothing crazy by any means. But I'm running the cpu at 4.3ghz on all cores with the auto voltage (1.475V). On a Cinebench run, it gets up to 77-78C ish as it is.

100 Mhz over max boost clock.. hige V, shorting the life off you CPU. drop to 4,0 and let the boost kick in at test. bot that i just my ide. it is you system a you can do whot you like to it

To be completely honest, I didn't even realize it until everything powered on and then I felt really dumb haha. I wanted to take it off to reposition it but I didn't have any thermal compound to replace it with.

I gotta check your build out to see the ram that you're running. I think I have right around 5mm clearance!

Most definitely. I think I re-did the cable management 3 times already and I'm still not happy with it
