Why only 60Hz monitor? :(

I use same CPU cooler. I like looking at build posts of the cooler.

I've updated the pictures to include the monitor.

The actual monitor I have, for now, is the Acer H277HUsmipuz 27 Inch WQHD Monitor, Silver (IPS Panel, 4 ms, ZeroFrame, DP, HDMI, USB Hub). It basically allows to just plug my MacBook Pro without much cables because it has a USB Type C port.

Please remind me to update this post. I have since purchased a Samsung 49" 120Hz with FreeSync 2,https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07NL27TCK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1, the exact model number is LC49RG90SSUXEN.

nice build

Can you provide some gpu/cpu under load temps?

  1. What specific FREE tools shall I use to do the tests?
  2. How long shall I do the tests?

Mind you, I wouldn't recommend the case to anyone doing a build meaning I think there are better options. Things I don't like about the case:

  1. Lack of air holes / vents on the panels.
  2. Front panel is not removable.
  3. No option to mount fans at the bottom even though I have plenty of space.
  4. I think this case is mainly designed to be used with a AIO CPU cooler.
  5. Their software to control the fans only works on Linux, you can't resize the application either.
  6. Fan controller only supports controlling three fans, which kind of makes sense if you think about point #4 that, i.e., you can control the AIO cooler, the rear fan and the top fan.
  7. No reset button on front panel and only two USB ports on front panel instead of say 3 like the Lian Li TU150 Mini ITX Desktop Case.

Good stuff:

  1. Cable routing is good.
  2. It looks good, especially in red.
  3. Well priced.

I basically have this, Lian Li TU150 Mini ITX Desktop Case, case at home at the moment and I'm waiting for AMD - com'on Dr Lisa Su, we are waiting :) - to release the Ryzen 9 3950X. It took my a long time to get this case. In my opinion, the Lian Li TU150 case is just perfect for its size.

In fact, I am thinking of selling this build and just making two Lian LI TU150 builds. I need to have a spare machine at home to use, if one were to fail - don't ask why. I would sell without the processor, AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core, but this is negiotable. There is a small in-perfection, that does not effect performance, with the the MSI PRESTIGE X570 CREATION EATX AM4 that I caused but this won't be an issue if you intend to run the system as-is and keep everything inside the current case. Basically, the red metal cover in the picture caused damage to one of the two USB motherboard headers. I would only sell to someone willing to come view the system in the London, UK.

Hello. Yes this case is tricky with airflow.

You can use cinebench r20, aida64 prime95

Usually for cpu/gpu, around 7-10minutes its ok to see roughly what the temps are.

Awesome build! I'm in my planning stage right now for a video editing rig that will primarily be used for 4k video editing in premiere (ProRes 422 HQ) and some after effects with maybe some cinema 4d if I can pull this off right. I bought a Lian Li 011 Dynamic XL in white... which I'm going to air cool with 10 (yes 10!!!) Noctua NF-P12 redux 1700 fans (6 intake and 4 exhaust) and a Noctua NH-U12S chromax black (with 2 fans). This build will have a total of 12 fans! 14, if you count the video card I'm looking at! Definitely budgeting for anti vibration EVERYTHING on these fans. So far, I've bought my case and all my air cooling stuff, but I am still up in the air about a lot of things. I'm definitely going with the Ryzen 3700x and the MSI Prestige X570. Everything I've looked into with regards to Adobe Premiere and After Effects points to 8 cores being the sweet spot in performance. That there's little to be gained with going with a higher core count because of the software limitations. So, going with a 3700x will let me focus my money on RAM, a good video card, and storage. The RTX 2070 Super seems like a good deal in my opinion, so I might go with that. But I wanted to ask you about your ram and your NVME drives.

  1. How's the performance with that Corsair Vengeance LPX ram at 3000mhz working out for you? Have you tried overclocking it? I'm also looking at getting 64gb's upfront and eventually maxing out the board at 128gb's. What are your thoughts on that? The motherboard should be able to handle all that ram, right? I mean, you don't need special cooling for that 128gb's of ram, even if it's overclocked, right?

  2. Did you have any issues with the Sabrent Rocket 4.0 drives? I know they are not listed in the QVL list. But dang, they are a good deal!!! Ideally I'd love to use two of these at a raid 0 as my working drive to house current projects. That being the case because these would be my fastest drives and 4K ProRes 422 HQ video ain't no joke when it comes to space and bandwidth.

I'm not planning on overclocking the CPU as everything I've read online seems to suggest that there really is no need to since Ryzen gives you so much up front. But I am very much interested in getting as much out of my ram as possible. I'm more interested in performance than I am aesthetics, but yeah I am going for a clean white/black/grey build. There will be no spinning disco fans in this machine, except for maybe a white LED bar somewhere and maybe the stuff on the motherboard. Oh, and the case does have one LED strip on the front too. Besides that, I'm going for a very clean look. Any advice you might have for me would be amazing! Thanks in advance.

I really like your 'I like red™' build. Maybe add some red led strips? Really nice build, I need more red as well.

Just curious what we’re the features that enticed you to spend $500 on a motherboard? Not a knock, wondered about other builds also. Thanks in advance.

For the record, I would not recommend this motherboard to anyone. I think I will use Asus next time. I considered these motherboards:

  • https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/X570%20Taichi/ - no built in Thunderbolt 3, otherwise great because I could live with the "2 Hyper M.2 (PCIe Gen4 x4 & SATA3), 1 Hyper M.2 (PCIe Gen4 x4)".
  • https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/X570%20Creator/index.asp - perfect motherboard but the lack of pre-fitted IO back-plate was an INSTANT turn off. In hindsight, I wish, I had gone for this board instead. The other issue is "1 Hyper M.2 (PCIe Gen4 x4 & SATA3), 1 Hyper M.2 (PCIe Gen4 x4)" instead of at least 3.

The MSI X570 Prestige Creation has some features which I like and it is almost future-proof motherboard if it had Thunderbolt 3:

  • Aquantia® AQC107 10-Gigabit LAN controller.
  • Lots of USB ports.
  • I wanted to use four PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSDs.

The MSI bios isn't great in my experience, it is highly confusing for starters. I wish this board was built by ASRock or ASUS instead. If you've used their [MSI's] Creator Content/Content Creator application, you would understand what I mean. I also like the fact that MSI are slow in releasing BIOS updates.

Thank you for the in depth response. Your needs (& knowledge) are at a whole different level than most of us “gamers”. Now I understand a little better & appreciate the choices the high end users must make & that it isn’t simply a matter of having “the best”. And by the way sharp looking clean build.

How is that memory working out for you? Did you ever try 1 stick and or ever check its XMP profiles in the bios or did you just go plug both in at once? I'm having to get 1 at a time so I'm very curious....

Did you have problems fitting the motherboard in the h510i case or does it fit with no modifications?
