Description

Boy do i have a history in only a year with pcs i've gone from an 860k and 1050 to this and i have to say i'm pretty surprised i've come so far in only a year.

originally i bought a prebuilt from ebay which was a huge mistake looking back as i WAY over payed for what i got and this was summer of 2017. that Christmas i upgraded to a ryzen 3 1200 with this ram which i know is slow for ryzen but i bought this during black Friday which had a good deal and i also did 0 research before buying however seeing benchmarks now not really feeling too bad

. Next upgrade was a free 1050ti from a really good friend which i used for a few months and then sold it to buy a used 1070 for $250 which turned out to be a bit of a mistake as it was labeled as new condition which was false as this card suffers from pretty noticeable coil whine so ill most likely be going to the next set of amd cards as i own a 144hz monitor with freesync when they come out.

Another thing i didn't use this ssd i used one from a company called apacer and it seems to be about the same as a typical off brand ssd.

Only complaints about my pc as a whole is slowish ram, I love seasonic but damn this pcie cable is cancer that they made it so it has to dangle if your card only uses 1 8/6 pin. Another side note is idle temps are a little higher then normal but with gpu my fans don't spin and the cpu cooler is not really audible

Case

This is a pretty not used case and i have to say for the $60 i played after shipping and tax i'm happy. Fan controller seems to set the fans at either 500rpm or ramped up to about 1200rpm but i usually just keep them at 500 so the only noise comes from gpu which sure doesn't like to be quiet. A lot of the screws are super tight which is really annoying. Something i really like is the side panel after 2 weeks the sound dampening foam seems like day 1 unlike other foam I've seen which has an imprint after a while. Cable management is a dream in here id think about 7mm of space behind mobo which allows for lazy cable management which is why i included a pic of my back side.

If you think the ram is slow you can always overclock it.

Ive tried but this ram is stubborn and going from 2400 to 2666 with 1.25v and i cant stabalize it

I mean the performance difference wont really be too noticeable for the difference in voltage id be pumping into it im not against overclocking just like i used to keep my gpu and cpu overclocked but just doesnt seem to make sense to go from 1.2v to 1.35 to get like 3k mhz and it'll only get me like a 3 fps average increase

I wouldn't say 3 FPS difference, I would say more like 10-20 depending on the game. Take a look at this video, it explains for itself.

We can throw links all day i know for certain games it does make a difference if the game is well optimized but i dont play those really except battlefield which is why i said i dont really regret the speed i bought

I would have just bought faster memory. Ryzen chips love fast memory.

I bought my ram when price was high last year so selling it now and to buy a faster just for a few fps doesnt seem worth it
