Description

My do it all machine. Going to be using it for streaming, recording, gaming, and everything in between. I wanted a good balance between noise and performance which is why I have lots of be quiet fans, they are actually quiet!

That's one fine drawer you have there. If I didn't just upgrade my case I would have bought it. Nice job on the build!

How's the ASUS wireless network adapter? About to purchase this myself! If you can, can you test your phone wireless connection speed and then test your PC wireless connection speed? It would help some of us on the fence out for sure! thanks man

Its great. Really stable and great range. Rarely had any problem with it.

Question: How Did You Manage The Money Expenditure Such as What U Bought First to Last and What were the Time Gaps Between Purchases. This is For Myself

  • 31 months ago

Honestly, I just upgrade when I feel like I want something different. So I never buy everything at once. It ranged anywhere from a few months to a year or two.

I started off with a prebuilt and upgraded from then. There was never really a first or last. Sorry for such a lame answer

It's Ok I Just wanted to Know How You Started and How Long It Took, So Your Answer was Sufficient

That's a fun build. I've not used anything from a couple of those manufacturers, but the only thing I would change is the PSU. That's because Enermax doesn't make their gear anymore, and because I don't believe in using less than a 750w, so that you have room to grow.

But it's your build, and it's a solid build, so don't let me or anyone else discourage you. :)

Umm, lots of PSU companies dont make their own gear. EVGA, Corsair both have other OEM's build their PSU's.

Anyways, if you look at the review of the PSU I have you will see that its a fantastic unit.

Regarding power usage, many people overestimate how much they really need. I use around 250-275w when I game. I really don't need more than 600w since I dont plan on CF/SLI. Also components are only getting more efficient.

Hi,

Is memory working at 3000mhz? Thanks.

  • 30 months ago

Never tried, especially with 4 sticks its even harder

Gonna give overclocking a go? You can easily maintain low volts at up to 3.85 :)

Maybe later once bios becomes more stable. But right now it really isnt needed since stock clocks are more than enough for me right now.

Did you need an AM4 bracket? If yes, how did you receive it or got it from?

Yeah i did need one. i bought it from modmymods.com

Hi, do you have any problems running that RAM on ryzen plarform? I'm planning to get one but cant sure if it is fully supported ryzen or not so i'm glad i find your build now (since that the 2400GHz version didnt eventl run on ryzen)

And can you run it at 3000ghz after agesa 1.06 updates ? Sorry for asking to many question

  • 27 months ago
  • 1 point

No problem. With agesa1006 bios, i can run the RAM at 3200Mhz CL14

I know I'm tardy to the party on this one. Great build btw +1. But I was wondering how well that RAM works with Ryzen and that Mobo. Were there any problems? Were you able to get the kit to 3000mHz? Did you overclock the RAM at all? Thank you in advance.

  • 26 months ago
  • 2 points

This was very early in the Ryzen release, like week one and because of that, RAM wasn't as compatible. It was even worse with 4 sticks. I don't have the build anymore, so I can't say how it is now.

TLDR: No, I wasn't able to get 3000Mhz nor did I overclock.

Looks like a sick build btw. However, I'm having trouble finding a motherboard that works perfectly with the silent loop 240, every mobo I put in the same parts list as it always says "The be quiet! - Silent Loop 240 65.5 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler may require a separately available mounting adapter to fit the Blah Blah Blah ATX AM4 Motherboard.". Even your build says that, so I was wondering, does it really matter? how did you mount it to your mobo? Did you have to buy a third party mount? please help I want to use this cooler. Thanks

  • 12 months ago

i just think it means it might need an am4 mounting bracket. mine didnt come with one, so i just bought one from modmymods. its also on aquatuning.us just search for it on either site.

mobo doesnt matter as long as you have am4 bracket

Why is the PSU so expensive for such low wattage??

  • 31 months ago
  • 2 points

Fanless psu.

  • 31 months ago

But why such low wattage?

  • 31 months ago

What do you mean?

  • 31 months ago
  • 2 points

More watts means more waste heat for a given efficiency level. It gets much more difficult to deal with that heat in a fanless system as output goes up. I'm impressed that it's 550@40C.

If you're talking about estimated system load vs PSU output, yeah, there's not a lot of headroom there. I'd bet this unit will handle it, though.

I actually use less than 300w when gaming according to the digital monitor software that Enermax provides.

  • 31 months ago
  • 1 point

Good to know. I've always wondered about real-time load, and have never attempted to measure it myself.

  • 31 months ago

The vast majority of PCs use a swinging gate amount of power, certain % on idle but that amount can increase by 50% or more when under load. A power supply efficiency curve (x-y plot of efficiency vs power consumed) usually shows that a PSU is most efficient around a certain mark, and if a system builder can calculate their total power draw and get it as close to that efficiency point, with obvious tolerances, it will allow the PSU to power the system to its utmost capability, will also prevent as much heat and drop a power bill due to less wasted energy.

Just FYI his total system draw is around 347W, according to the outervision PSU calculator and recommended PSU is 397 W.

I agree in theory, but if the implemented practice is to use the power supply, or even the parts of the system, for more than 2 years, I would suggest getting something with a bit more juice.

Capacitors age, and efficiency drops, and when that happens a smaller PSU loses efficiency or the ability to deliver the power promised, while a system may need more power to deliver on performance and functions.

While yes some of what you said is true, I also say that a good product is one that will hold the test of time. I still have a 760 Apevia PSU I purchased in college in 2004, when SLI rated PSU meant it had 2x6pin PCI-E and that was it, and it was ran HARD and constant, because I left my PC on pretty much 24x7 and it still works to this day. I even rebuilt an old HTPC with it and it still performs, and that was a product that is 13 years old, and with newer manufacturing implementations and better quality of products they should allow parts and components to last even longer. Not saying there isnt the odd duck out that fails every now and then...
