Description

My first build. Not so powerful but enough for my needs. I play only CS GO and FIFA17. I get mote then 200 FPS in each of them.

Planning to switch to R5 1600, but that`s not for sure...

I replaced the Cryorig H7 fan with Noctua NF-F12, it`s silent and cools my R5 1400, OC to 3.8 GHz at 1.35V, very well, idle at 35-38C and max 65C in games. The Cryorig fan has a rattle noise, I hate it. I tried to use it as a case fan, for intake but its noise as hell, ordered an Noctua NF-A14.

Also I painted my NF-S12A and NF-P14s fans in black to match my theme. I used a black matte spray and made them perfect. Very cool looking :). No noise or performance issues. Plan to paint NF-A14 fan too, as soon as I get it.

P.S. Sorry for my English if it`s not perfect. Not my native language.

I second that, also goes to show air coolers can look just as awesome as AIOs in a system.

so i could buy a 620w psu with that psu and gpu and i woulnd't get any higher power bills right?

PSU's only draw the power required of them. You could buy a 1600W PSU and your energy bill would be the same as the 620W.

thanks for the reply m8

Yep. If you wanna get technical, the different ratings of the power supply (Bronze, Gold, etc) reflect the efficiency of the PSU. The more efficient it is the less it will expend in heat/waste, therefore less power pulled. So in theory if you left a 600W Bronze rated PSU running for as long as a 600W Platinum rated PSU on the same load, you'd notice the platinum one would pull less energy due to being more efficient. At the end of the day though, I don't know if it would make a significant impact on your energy bill unless you leave the PC on 24/7. Even with that there are probably better ways to conserve energy.

i would leave it on 12 hours a day maybe 8 hrs a day with a seasonic s12ii 620w bronze rated psu

Nice clean build! Side-note: Does the CPU really get up to 70c under load?

  • 33 months ago

Yes, I don't know when, but after some gaming in Hwinfo I get max CPU temp 70C... The problem is in how MB is reading CPU temp, x370 killer is not reading Tdie temp but from the sensor under the socket, that's why the cpu fan is not spinning faster when it's get at 70C because the temp under the socket are much much lower, about 50C... In stress tests in can get as high as 80C on Tdie temp, MB is reporting max 60C...

This is a great build and it looks really nice. I have the same case and you've chosen wise.

Nice build! A better SSD/HDD should have taken up more of the budget though, that case is super overkill.

I had them before, from other PC and I wanted the look at first and then the performance :)

Did you need to buy the AM4 upgrade kit?

  • 33 months ago

No, I got them for free from Cryorig website. You just need to be a registered user and send them proof of purchase for a AM4 MB or Ryzen CPU.

Do you need to receive the MoBo/CPU before ordering the upgrade kit? Thanks.

No, just send them the invoice or screenshot of your order.

Have you tried lowering to voltage to get to 3.8 guess I hit gold but I OCed my ryzen to 3.8 with 1.2750V on stock cooler and I never go over 60C during Aida64 let alone gaming

Is it normal if my top covers are a bit yellow-ish, instead of the same lucid white that the entire case has?

  • 27 months ago

No, mine are white as the entire case.
