This is an updated build for my Streaming PC, I now have a Ryzen 7 1700 instead of the Ryzen 5 1600 I had before, I also now have a Corsair H75 for my cooler. The upgrade from the 1600 to the 1700 wasn't really necessary but it was cheap so, why not? I also got some cheap cable extensions off of Amazon that go along with my color scheme nicely. I use this PC to stream games off of my main PC. (https://pcpartpicker.com/b/zdfH99) I use my streaming pc along with the ultrawide to have OBS, chat, and alerts all in one place, and I use the three monitors for anything else on my main PC.

Part Reviews


Amazing CPU for encoding, got it for $180 on Newegg. OC'd to 3.9 GHz with H75

CPU Cooler

Amazing CPU cooler oc'd my ryzen 7 1700 to 3.9 Ghz with really good temps


Very nice fairly cheap motherboard.


Decent ram for the price.


Old, but fast. Also expensive.

Video Card

I've had this card for a very long time and it has not let me down yet. Still works great after a couple of years.


This case is amazing for the price. It has awesome side panels, nice magnet mesh to go over the front and top of the case. And, it can be inverted and flipped upside down, exactly what I needed.


Great capture card I strongly recommend this to anyone that wants to stream to a console or another PC.

Nice rig! I'm searching for Q300L builds since I just bought the case for my little sisters build! Haha, I upgraded to a Ryzen 7 from a Ryzen 5 1600! I got the 1700X for $200.....so my sister gets a Ryzen 1600! I might turn her PC into a media server since the CPU power is gonna be wasted on her gaming and internet use lol

Thanks! Yeah, I love this case, its amazing for the price and you can have some pretty nice looking builds in it. And good luck on your sisters build!

nateo200 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Is 4 go of ram enough for a stream dedicated pc

WasThatSketchy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Not really no, I have 8 in it currently. Need to get another stick of 4 though so I can have dual channel.

How did you get to cable sleeve your PSU?

WasThatSketchy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

I bought cable extensions from amazon.

I'm loving the looks. Something to know is that you might want faster RAM, as Ryzen scales better with faster memory (DDR4-2933-DDR4-3300), but not too fast.

yeah, i know about the ram thing, but how big of a difference is the performance?

woahwoahwilly 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Slower RAM apparently hurts performance quite a bit. Not sure how much - I design Ryzen-based computers, but I don't have a stable source of income (I still did my homework) and thus can't afford them much.

This may help a LITTLE bit: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3472692/fast-ram-ryzen.html

Didn't read very far into the thread.
