Description

This is my 1st PC build I have ever done. I enjoyed every bit of making this thing, it is an absolute monster as well. I was able to bench 4.2 GHz on the CPU with it, and only go uo to 60C, took it down to 4.0 GHz because of the voltage. This built is very easy to make and easy to overclock as well. the one downside it has is that the AIO can get a bit noisy, but I never notice when gaming. If you ask me it's the ideal gaming build with nice RGB for 1080p

CPU

Works really well on 1080p level, easy to OC,no thermal issues on my build. never failed me. Other than that one time I tried to OC it to much.... But very solid CPU for the price.

Thank you! It's really nice but if you OC it you have to go 1.375 volts for 4.2 Ghz and read that 1.33 is the max for AMD for safety reasons, so I'm gonna stick with that 4.0

Just ordered these parts, cant wait to try this out, personally what i do is after i have some fun i usually donate the pc i test to a charity so they dont have to run on 1 gb of ddr2 ram :)

Very nice to donate parts to others of you! Rip for people who still run DDR2.

Did you manage to get the RAM to 3200 Mhz? Also I'm planning on getting the same motherboard, is there anything I should take note of?

Motherboard looks good, didn't have problems, only thing to note is that the if you use an AIO, the connection for the pump is in the middle of the board, also the fans headers are a bit spread out, making it a bit harder to route cables. RAM can be adjusted to proper speed in the BIOS, and I've read that AMD works better with higher clocked RAM

Ok thanks. I am planning on using an AIO, but it should be fine.

once you set the XMP profile it was running at 3200?

I manually adjusted everything, works better than XMP and DOCP

Not the RAM, just the CPU and GPU, not so familiar with RAM settings other than CAS and the bunch, so I wioll just let it run at what it is tested at.

Probably around 60-180 on max settings.

I have more or less the same build. my question is did you use your cooler controller? cause if you did, then that means it cannot run with aura. if not, then how did you manager to put 3 rgb headers (2 fan, 1 pump) into your MOBO?

The ML240L comes with an RGB Splitter, I have 3 front fans which have RGB, so I got another splitter from MasterCooler which has 3 connections to it.

so you use an RGB splitter for your ML240L in one of your RGB headers? can you do that? because as i read it, its only 12v and each fan on the ML240L is 12v. would it not be burned out?

No, it just means the amperage is less over 3 objects. so each object emits just 1/3 of it's capacity, but IMO you don't see the difference that much.

Airflow is good, only downside is I wanted to use a fan in the top next to the radiator, but I didn't have the room for the fan next to the radiator.

Yo get a 144 hertz display with freesnyc,, get a RX 580 8gb, get a ATX b450 (or b350 is you get the boot kit from AMD) and get the cheapest 700 watt 80+ power supply from a good brand. Also, get a 1 TB ssd if you can. Finally, get a Ryzen 5 2600 (or 1700, if you can afford it).

A 2600 is your best bang for your buck, I like the 1060, but GSync monitors are a bit more expensive. also like @FiveSquared25 said, get a ATXB450, or a X470. 1TB SSD might be a bit overkill, but it works, also look into M.2 SSD, very easy to install and they are super fast.

They're awesome, even from a perfomance point, they do the job well

If you would have looked in the part list you would see that I bought Noctua Thermal paste, thermal paste doesn't come pre intsalled on the ML240L, but it does come with basic thermal paste. Since I overclocked my system it is wister to get other thermal paste, but if you don't overclock the normal paste that comes delivered with it should be okay.
