Description

All I do is light gaming so I don’t need a lot (hints the RX 580). I value looks over function, that’s why I got the Strix version of the RX 580. Everything came together smoothly but the cables were a little hard to shape in position. I overclocked the cpu to 4.1 GHz, GPU to 1450 MHz, and the RAM to 3200 MHz.

How did you put the led light under the case in the p600? I have the case and it seems that the only connection spot for it that I saw was up at the top/front of the case.

The Halos Lux I purchased came with a cable that changed two proprietary phanteks RGB connectors into a 12v 4 pin RGB connector. I used one slot for the Halos Lux and the other for the RGB strip. I also used the 4 pin RGB extender that came included with my motherboard.

Super clean and very sensible build. Great choice of parts. Awesome work! Just goes to show you can get a great looking and performing build without spending a fortune.

(You should adjust the AMD logo on the cooler so it's facing upright. That's my only "complaint," haha)

Thanks for the compliment! I will be sure to rotate the logo face up!

Thats a damn clean build. love the blue... wish I had waited for the strix b-450. I'm stuck with the strix b-350 :(

Thanks! I still think the B350-F is still a beautiful board!

I would have maybe gone with a GTX 1060 for about the same price range, and maybe upgraded to an X470 board for also a similar price, but good build.

x470 board? What for? The extra M.2 slot, slightly better (only handful) VRMs, stable offset voltage for PBO won't benefit him much since he barely games and x470 are more viable for extreme overclocking cases, SLI support, prime BIOS update for future CPU compatibility (B450 boards receive it before international launch usually). Enthusiast grade boards are waste of money unless buyer wants everything from 'top notch' line and uses that criteria to justify the purchase. Agreed on 1060 or more affordable 580 model.

agreed. An X470 would've been overkill in this situation. However, I still want one for mine :(

In this build I valued looks and I was willing to pay the extra 35$ to get the Strix version of the RX 580. I also wanted FreeSync support (built this before Nvidia anounced support forFreeSync) so I wanted to go with an AMD card. But thanks for the advise!

Thanks for the suggestion but I bought my CPU when the price of the 1700 was around 200$ and with almost no performance gains over the 2600 in games the 1700 wasn't a viable option for me.
