This build was for me to expand on PC gaming and move more away from console. I currently am frequently playing destiny 2. I went with Ryzen 1600 because it was a good deal for the performance and I was hoping to win the silicone lottery, and I think I did. Please tell me if I didn't and 4.0ghz is the average , like my car, the jetta. I currently am using two re purposed 32 inch 1080P tv's for my monitors and they do the job for now. This is my second build, my first was little engine that could. I used some parts from the old build to keep the price down on this ryzen build. I'm happy with the performance. This thing runs cool with the H60 cooler at 4.0ghz. Gaming max is 58c normal load is around 38c. The GTX 970 is a still a beast for Destiny 2 at max settings.
EDIT: The refurb GTX 970 crapped out. :( I got a replacement and it was bunk too. Too good to be true. I got the RX580 for a deal, and it is performing beautifully. Go with AMD if you can, or buy new.
Thanks for checking out my build. Enjoy!!! Comment any suggestions.
This CPU is a great value at $199.99. Performs like an overclocked beast. AMD really hit the mark with this cpu and it shreds tasks and gaming. I'm not big on photo or video editing, but i'm sure this cpu can handle most editing tasks.
Good AIO water cooling solution for the price. I have not had any problems installing or with cpu temp. Probably the best $50 dollars I have spent on a cooler.
Make sure you turn on the Bios reset option before you start overclocking memory or CPU. If you don't it will keep trying the same settings and require you to reset the CMOS to boot. This was a big pain point for me in this build. Hopefully this review will help someone out.
I got this memory to 2800 mhz with my mobo and it isn't listed as compatible. Im pleased with it, hoping a bios update with add more speed. It functions at 3000 or 3200 with certain Intel based boards.
Awesome case for the money. Feel sturdy and has plenty of cable management. Love the all white case.
Quieter than my corsair fans I had before. Nice green LED to match my build.
