Description

I have upgraded prebuilts in the past but never fully built a rig. But it was fun, the only thing that made me nervous was if it was going to post. But everything ran great, and cable management was a nightmare cause the Focus G had very little space and no tie down areas but it doesn't go over 66 degrees on full load so that's good.

Part Reviews

CPU

Wanted to go with a midgrade CPU, and something that came out recently. I might OC later, but for now I wanted to run it stock. Fast as hell and the Cooler is quiet and really good.

Motherboard

Awesome Motherboard. I just wanted something compatiable with the ryzen 3600 with not worrying about flashing the BIOs ( I was really nervous with dealing with that sort of stuff) so i just went with the X570 so I wouldn't have to worry about it. I had to update with bios (there was already 4 updates on their website when I had put mine together , and it was mainly for the memory) I had to adjust the Bios to recognize my 3200 ram because at first it only saw it as 2666. But updating the Bios, and adjusting the RAM was simple especially for the first time builder. Didn't really go heavy with the RGB, the only RGB on my whole build is on the board and the fans are just white.

Memory

I had issues with RAM, apparently there is some Ryzen optimized ram, so I had to return the other ram I had gotten and then got these that actually say something on the box about it being Ryzen compatible/optimized. FYI If you do Ryzen build get the one with a Z not a B in the part number.

Storage

I was going to with the SSD 2.5 but my friend told me to invest in a m.2 and I am so glad. Lighting fast, it takes like second to boot up from completely shut off and turns off fast as well. Totally worth it, although I wish I went with 1tb.

Video Card

This is the updated part to the build. I wont get it for another couple of days but it's an upgrade from my 1050 ti that I have in my machine right now. Hoping it will be a lot better and I run games in at least 1080p with 60+fps

Case

It's a bit tiny for cable management thankfully I had a fully modular PSU, but still it was a pain. Looks great, but the front IO LEDs are bight a hell.

Power Supply

Easy to install, went a bit overboard with the power. I wanted to have enough power for anything. So happy i got a full modular one.

Optical Drive

I reused it from my old computer that I had laying around, I like to make burn cd's for my grandmother, so that's why I put this in my build.

Operating System

Meh it windows

Case Fan

Bright, awesome, and works with Mystic Lighting. Cable management was a pain the butt. It took me over 2 hours to install and do the cable management, but soo worth it.

Monitor

Got lucky and got this for free. bright, large and works great.

Keyboard

Love my ducky! doesn't work with mystic lighting :(

Mouse

Great for FPS and works with Mystic Lighting

Mouse

Great for MMOS works with Mystic Lighting

Question about the ram, the model number. I have an identical kit with a b in the number, and you said to get them with a z in the number? Why is this? Will mine still work with ryzen 3000? Cheers Btw I came from an Intel setup, so already have the ram
