Description

My first computer I have ever build! This will be for computer programming at my college, completing school assignments (I just cannot take it anymore with my slow piece of crap dell inspiron laptop that will lag and drop my connectivity and activity from time to time when I'm in the middle of turning in my assignments before the deadline), and some gaming.

$1180 for the total (at the time I bought the parts)! My specs is ridiculously awesome! Ready to kill it at gaming and completing school assignments with my

Ryzen 5 1600X, B350-F Gaming Motherboard, 16GB Memory (2x8GB) MAX Frequency 3000 MHz, 256GB SSD (For operating system and and main programs), 2TB HDD (For games and backing up stuff), 650W EVGA SuperNova G3 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular,

and a

Wi-Fi card for wireless connectivity.

This beast is pretty maxed out on specs to play games that recommend at least a Ryzen 5 1500X and an RX 570 with at least 8-16GB memory. I made sure that this system has at least a 6 core processor or higher because applications and games have caught up to 4 core processors so dual core seems to be like slowly becoming outdated already. But at least still usable for people who are on a budget and know what they're doing.

Very nice build! I love how AMD is coming back in a strong way to push competition between them and Intel again. I remember when I built my AMD Athlon XP 3200+ PC when I was 16 (boy am I getting old...), and 5 years later when I went to build my next machine Intel was so far ahead that AMD seemed like it would be a footnote, Intel's products stopped striving to be innovative, and prices just kept going up.

Great job on the build, and the great attention to detail (the layout of the extra LED, cable management, etc.)!

Well, when you're using Intel CPU's there are many differences. Intel Xeon is meant for heavily multi-threaded applications/ server based applications. The Intel I series (i3, i5, i7) CPU's have more instructions per clock, and are better at gaming because of the fact that they have been a power house for so long. AMD is an amazing balance of speed for speed for applications, and solid FPS rates for a high core count CPU. Depending on what you are testing (games, or applications which vary widely) you are going to notice a difference. I love the Zen+ AMD CPU's because they run games very well, and are within the FPS that your eyes can register, and they beat out Intel in a lot of multi-threaded applications that are not solely dependent on CPU speed. As a side note, Intel also has faster CPU speeds, but have a MUCH, MUCH, MUCH higher wattage rate which means a higher power bill. Also, I think that Xeon CPU's are going to go the way of the Dodo pretty soon because of the fact that AMD's Threadripper series is beating out the Xeon in nearly every aspect.

Would you think it be possible if anytime in the near future, my college might decide to replace Xeon for a Threadripper because of there flawless performance? I noticed everywhere at my college is heavenly on Intel like WTF no AMD CPU?!?? Is it just me or do school's really like Intel over AMD? Can schools go for at least an AMD PC sometime? Ever? And my god, my computer lab's PC is so slow like it takes almost 3-5 minutes just to get to the log-on screen from powering on the computer! Even though my college is running Intel i5. Not sure which generation and I cannot check onto their control panel or settings to find out in their "About" section to determine specifically what generation their intel CPU is like an i5-3200 or i5-8600. Whatever their generation i5 CPU is, is a complete mystery. I wonder how old their hard drive is because just logging into my student account takes an awful long *** time.

Amazing build beautifull and well put but one thing is not okay cable manegmment the core g21 has plenty of good cable routes you should make a good use of it ove rall amazing build i am jealous :D

After this college fall semester, I might possibly take it apart, disassemble it, clean it and making sure that there are no dust being collected or if there are then I remove it, and reassemble it and do better cable management. I've watched countless youtube tutorials on build guides, cable management guides, etc. This was my first time building my PC, so please give me a little bit of credit here for at least trying my best. I already knew it wasn't going to have great cable management like what you see in GEARVN's montage videos. The challenging part was that youtubers don't ever tell you is that sometimes depending on your parts, you should put in parts what makes the most sense in first into your case before having to ever place your motherboard inside the case, such as placing your PSU in first, so that you can route the CPU connector to the TOP LEFT of your motherboard and getting your SSD sata connectors in the hole first before placing the PSU which can block up spaces. And probably would've been best to do this first PSU > Motherboard > Memory > all the connectors > CPU cooler > and then the GPU. So that is why my cable management look like hellish because I did not put in what make sense first for easy cable management at the same time while building it together. Lessons learned. But hey at least it boot and working and I was able to play some games!

First build …….. CONGRATS !!

In looking at your photos, nice pictures by the way, I noticed the screenshot and it shows Windows 8...….. ?

Great build! I'm going to use the Cryorig Quad Lumi in an upcoming build. Best looking air cooler out there. Especially love the underglow it gives off. Well done.

I would look at screening that bottom light strip somehow. Maybe with some frosted film or tape? Or maybe a small piece of acrylic lightly painted white. Just a thought.

I like showing off my light strip. Looks even more badass in person than it does on picture. By the way just to give you heads up, for the Quad Lumi, the fan blades does not have RGB just a white LED while everything else is RGB on the logo and at the bottom. Instructions was a bit unclear and it took me a while to figure out. This was my very first build after watching for a year with JayzTwoCents, LinusTechTips, BitWit (a.k.a Kyle), Austin Evans (he's okay), Joey Delgado, and the ScatterVolt. These guys are the best.

May I ask, if you don't mind me asking, is this going to be your first build? If so, what are your specs?

Later this year, after this college semester, I might disassemble and reassemble my PC to fix my cable management. Right now my schedules are just kind of tight with college, work, and homework.

No. Not my first build. Actually you had commented on my Golden Elite budget build awhile back. I always give anyone who comments on my builds the courtesy of viewing theirs and trying to give back some comments. I'm working on a Japanese "Elements" themed build using the Quad Lumi and an NZXT H700. "Elements" being the Japanese kanji symbols for water, fire, wind and earth.

I thought about replacing the white led fan on the Quad Lumi with an NZXT Aer fan, but I actually kinda like the white glow it gives.

Oh yeah, I remember now! I checked out your page and I recalled it now. I actually like the white glow in my PC, looks badass. For your theme "Elements," you should make it the "Avatar the Last Airbender" kind of theme because the live action series will be airing on Netflix soon! Get a head start on that! And a suggestions, if you could find a decal sticker, slap the Aang arrow on a transparent window and maybe it will look even cooler if you put the arrow dead center of the heatsink to give it kind of an illumination. Take a look at the Deepcool Gammaxx GT. That just might give the arrow a glow. And no this is not a Shyamalan Avatar film which was so horrible I feel like barfing when the series show was so much better.

Finished my "Elements" build. Check it out when you get the chance:
