Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing performance on its own, and I love the stock CPU cooler, looks really nice, a bit loud but can’t hear a thing with headphone on. This is a great value for anyone who wants to have a good price to performance ratio. Scored 1750 on cinebench.

Motherboard

It’s a nice MOBO, but it’s overcloxking capabilities are not great. Great RGB, and othe board itself looks nice! I would recommend for anyone who just needs a good value MOBO for their Ryzen build and does not want to bother with over locking. I would have given it a 4/5 but it feels like this MOBO is holding my CPU back. I could be wrong!

Memory

Great performance with Ryzen 7 2700X. Love the RGB, overall I would highly recommend for any build.

Storage

So far the SSD have been fast and reliable, can’t say more. Plus it’s a good value!

Storage

So far it’s been great for gaming, storing all my big files (AKA Games), loadtimes are good too. Most games I played using this storage have loaded right away, Destiny 2 for example has a bit of a loading wait when first boot up, but after other planets take only few secs to 1 min to load. Great buy!

Video Card

So far no complaints! It says that it has a boost clock of 1740, but so far I been getting 1950 you core clock across most games, with temps at 73-76 degree Celsius. Performance has been great with Ryzen 7 2700X. The power of 7even (RTX 2070 + 2700X) what else can I say!

Case

This case is amazing! I was first going to buy the coolermaster masterbox 5 RGB pro, but this one is way better. It has more air intake at the front and it also has cooling option on top of the case ( the previous masterbox did not). The RGB is also amazing and it is really easy to build with. I love the tempered glass side panel and the aesthetics of the case is great for any build. Plus side, it’s less then $100 Canadian!

Power Supply

Don’t know much about reviewing a PSU, but so far it’s working great, love the semi modular design, easy to work with, lots of cables included. No regrets!

Most computer noobs would not have chosen the 8700k just because of the intel logo, they would have chose it because for gaming the 8700k beats out the 2700X. The 2700X can handle streaming a bit better due to the extra cores but in terms of raw power the 8700k beats Ryzen hands down.

CPU choice depends on use-case and budget. Intel chips that can overclock tend to be the better option functionality wise compared to AMD for high refresh rate (144hz+) gaming because they can OC to 5.0 GHz. For 100hz and lower there is little to no difference between Intel and AMD and you tend to get more bang for the buck on AMD in that case. Also considering streamers they often don't upload more than 60fps to the stream because of upload bandwidth so any higher than 60 fps will mean nothing for the final product of the stream. Though some people like to still get the high refresh rate for themselves regardless.

I'm not saying the Ryzen 7 2700x was a bad choice for gaming+streaming, in fact it is a fantastic choice for it. Though that being said Intel does have its place in the market and both CPUs have their strengths and weaknesses.
