I was looking for a desktop to do video editing and some light gaming so I went for AMD Ryzen build. As it is my first time assembling by myself I faced quite a few challenges.
Including having a hard time pulling the psu cable from the motherboard header. Also, because the ram I ordered was a bit too tall I could not install one of the AIO fan onto the radiator, so I had to buy a noctua slim fan to fit into the space, and then moved the original aio fan to the back of the case.
Overall quite happy with the parts and the end result. The overclocked results aren't the best but I'm satisfied with them. And definitely enjoying the RGB lighting =)
At $345 cdn I have no complaints. Good enough for games and rendering is quite fast.
5 Stars! The fans are quiet, the rgb lights are pretty and works well with motherboard light syncing program. Keeps my Ryzen 7 2700x cpu at around 69C under load. Nothing to complain!
Good motherboard, does everything I need it to be. Do be careful with the ram height. With the placement of the ram sticks I was not able to install one of my AIO water cooler's fan. Overclock runs pretty smooth, with temperature of around 67C.
The ram works well and I was able to get it to 3000 hz. Only thing is that it does NOT sync with the motherboard. It does a rainbow light up but not in sync with the motherboard lightning and you cannot change it. On the website I believe it says it's compatible with mystic light. But No, it doesn't.
Got a deal on these. The test result: read speed 3426mb/s, write 2780mb/s
absolutely beautiful graphics card. got them on a deal. Runs really quite and performs well. Did not go above 70C with stress test. The default curve actually prevents the gpu fan from spinning below 60C, but I changed it. Original boost is 1830, I was able to put another 110 on top in afterburner.
So many places to route your cables. The psu compartment, however, is very small. You have to plug in all your cables first before you install the psu onto the case. And making any changes are a pain. Beautiful lights though. The 3 front case fans create a bit high pitched whine but its not very loud. A guest would probably not notice that the PC is turned on if they didn't pay attention.
Modular and works. Got rated highly from reviewers.
