Description

Hi! I just completed my first ever pc build. It was a little scary at first but in the end i was happy and confident. I am going to use this pc for mostly gaming and also work. Will do some complex graphic designing, animation, video editing and so on. Played shadow of the tomb raider and gta 5 and they run sooo smooth. No problem with fps at all on max settings. I wanted a white build so i got it mostly white. I will be doing an upgrade in couple of months. Upgrading 16gb of ram to 4 sticks 32gb. Water cooling cpu (aio), puting in better fans (cooling is good even now when gaming getting max 60 degrees on cpu and gpu) and installing samsung evo 970 ssd to the motherboard.

Hope you like it. Greetings from Slovenia!

Thanks! Cables are BitFenix extensions (Alchemy model) they feel very high quality. I bought it on mindfactory.de but amazon have them too. You can buy single cables or a kit: https://www.amazon.com/BitFenix-Alchemy-Extension-Connector-BFX-ALC-EXTWW-RP/dp/B075MD5YK9/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1549406419&sr=8-3&keywords=bitfenix+alchemy+2.0+extension+cable+kit+white

Dobro Jutro!

Moram da ti kazem: tvoj comp je ODLICAN! Jedino sto me mene smeta, je ovaj 8-pin GPU power cable xD MOLIM TE povuci ga samo malo pozadi da ne visi tako. Sve u svemu je perfektno!

pozdrav iz Srbije! :D

Here's a small translation if you couldn't understand everything. xD

Good morning!

I have to tell you: your pc is GREAT! The only thing that bothers me is the 8-pin GPU power cable xD PLEASE push it just a little more behind the cover so it doesn't hang it like that. All in all it's perfect!

I'm getting the same CPU and GPU for my build, and I wanted to ask, how are benchmark scores? Nice Build btw!

  • 9 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks, Benchmarks are very good for stock. On free version of 3DMark time spy i get a score around 10.000 which gives you "better than 92-93% of all results" with overclocking you could probably push more i guess. All the games run really smooth. Playing shadow of the tomb raider and gta v on max settings easy.

All you need are some cable combs for the GPU and Motherboard and it will look pretty much perfect.

Very nice build.

Do you only have a single intake and exhaust fan? I want to get an idea what temp would look like with air cooling in that case. Also are those 120mm or 140mm fans?

  • 9 months ago
  • 2 points

Cooling is actually really good. On normal work i get aprox. 35 degrees on GPU and 34 degrees on CPU (celsius) and some light gaming (cs:go) aprox. 40 degrees on both. On really hard gaming is between 50-60 on both. On the hardest stress test for GPU it didnt go over 69-70 degrees and on CPU stress test was around 60-65 max. So stock cooler on 2700x is quite good. When i stop playing games temps drop to 35 very quick so i guess cooling is doing the right job. I am using three fans. One 120mm exhaust fan in the back and 2 front fans (one is 140mm one is 120mm) I have ordered one more 140mm fan for the front. I have read that the best fan configuration for this case is one 120mm exhaust on the back and two 140mm in the front for intake. Hope it helps!

Thanks! Yeah it was first, little scary at the beginning but ended up really nice. I am very happy. Made a plan before the parts arrived and watched like hundred yt build guides but it was scary because not one build guide had the same components.

Nice build ! Can I ask where on the motherboard did you plug the rgb cable from the wrath cooler? I have same MB and same cooler and the cable seems a bit too long and is in a way of everything else.

  • 9 months ago
  • 2 points

Thanks! The plug for rgb cable is on the bottom, left of F-panel cables (power on, reset...) it has white plastic. (right of usb 3 cable). I tucked the cable behind GPU a little bit and run it behind the case where motherboard cable comes in and out underneath the motherboard (same as case cables). Hope it helps!

Hi, i have the same build but with a ryzen 2600x. Same mobo and ram. I haven't been able to gain control of the rgb on the ram sticks. I've tried iCue, asus and gigabyte rgb software. But no luck. Did you have to jump through any hoops to get yours to work?

  • 9 months ago

Hi, I think there is a problem with controlling the rgb on the ram because this ram isn't on asus x470 prime pro compatible ram list. So it's not fully compatible. It does not affect the performance of the ram but i think that's why we cant fully control the rgb on this ram. iCue and Aura didn't recognized my ram but gigabytes software did (rgb fusion 2.0). Once you install fusion 2.0 restart the computer go into the fusion 2.0 and change the color of the ram (it probably wont change right away) close the program and reopen the program. (Probably it will only change one stick). shut down the computer and turn it on and go into the program, change the color and change it back to your wanted color, save. Quit the program and reopen the program. Shut down the computer and repeat the same step, go into the program, change colour and reopen the program. And this got it working for me... a few shutdowns and restarts of the program and its working like it should. (It usually changes colour when i reopen the program after i change rgb) hope you get it working!

This is almost the same parts i want to use in my pc i am hopping to build. Do you have any tips on anything with that pc.

  • 9 months ago
  • 2 points

Everything is perfect for me so i wouldn't change anything. But the RAM isn't on the motherboards compatible ram list. It is very hard to control the rgb lighting on the ram but performance wise no problems. I have overclocked ram and it is working fast and without problems. I got this ram because of performance and looks so rgb wasn't that important to me but i knew i will make it work. So maybe pick ram from compatible list to avoid any extra work to get the rgb lighting on the ram to work. Probably because it isn't fully compatible with the ram the asus aura and iCue doesn't recognize it. Fusion 2.0 from gigabye did the trick for me.

I’m making the same build with the GPU, Motherboard and Case except for a Ryzen 5 2600 and wait until the new series come out.

I got the exact same build as you coming soon! +1 for the white/RGB color scheme ahaha. I'm just still debating on the GPU you have or the Asus RTX 2070...

How is the system- Is there anything you would change?

  • 9 months ago
  • 1 point

Woop, nice for you! I wouldn't change anything because everything works so smooth and good. Performance is great, temp. are good, no problems or anything. But! The ram (corsair vengeance rgb pro) isn't on the list of compatible ram with asus x470 prime pro motherboard. I don't have any problems with performance. I overclocked ram and its working great, so no issues in performance, but maybe because it is not fully compatible. Its hard to get rgb change on the ram. I googled it and its common problem with this ram and this motherboard (probably because it is not fully compatible). Asus aura doesn't recognize the ram and not even iCue from corsair. Gigabytes program does but it does not offer as much rgb settings as iCue. So if this ram isn't a must on your build maybe pick a ram that is on the motherboards compatible ram list (you can get the list on asus x470 prime pro webpage). But make sure you get 3000Mhz+ ram if using this cpu. It boosts performance and fps in games.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I might switch up the RAM and/or MOBO. But I'm loving the white theme in PC.

Can I get your opinion on the RAM/MOBO? Can you see the sleekness of the asus x470 prime pro? Can you really see the MOBO when you look at your PC?

Thanks for helping me- I really appreciate it!

Hi, I am thinking of doing your exact build or something very similar. This would be my first time ever building one. I know how to build a pc, but feel a bit intimidated. I'm just confused on downloading the motherboard drivers when your done the build. Where did you go to download them and what drivers? Also you didnt overclock the 2700x right, because i dont want to overclock. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

  • 9 months ago

Hi, This build is very good so far, awesome gaming and work experience. No problems. But as i said in some of the comments This exact RAM isn't on the motherboards "compatible ram" list. it works great, great performance i overclocked it a little bit and its perfect performance wise. But it is very hard to control rgb lightning because the ram isn't fully "compatible" with the motherboard. So if you want to avoid extra work trying to figure out how to get the rgb working as you would want, pick a ram that is on the motherboard compatible list ( list of compatible motherboard ram with ryzen 2nd gen: https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/SocketAM4/PRIME_X470-PRO/PRIME-X470-PRO-memory-QVL-Ryzen-2nd--Generation-processors.pdf?_ga=2.144290172.879456115.1550001799-285558132.1550001799 ).

I didn't overclocked cpu (ryzen 2700x) because i have stock cooler and i dont want to overclock it on stock cooler. Maybe i will overclock it when i get water cooling, I just overclocked gpu and ram. You don't need to overclock anything...But one tip! Your PC will set your ram to default 2133Mhz speed, You will probably buy a faster ram, at least 3000Mhz is recommended when using amd cpu it will boost the performance. So go to the BIOS and just set from auto to D.O.C.P. in ai tweaker->ai overclock tuner and its done!

The drivers are the last thing that you should worry about. You go to asus prime pro x470 webpage and all the drivers are there: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/PRIME-X470-PRO/HelpDesk_Download/

For gpu just download geforce experience from geforce website and it will automatically download all the drivers needed for gpu.

And that is pretty much it. Just watch some tutorial on how to update BIOS but it is very easy so no pressure and highly recommended. I think there are tutorials on updating BIOS for the same exact motherboard. You can install all drivers in like 10min. PC will boot up just fine and work without drivers so there is no pressure just take your time to download and install all drivers. Also you can get some software that checks if you have all drivers installed and then install them for you i think the DriverPack is good ? but you dont really need this, just download all drivers from asus (x470 prime pro page) and geforce experience and you are good!

This is a great looking build. +1! I plan on building a pc within the next month or so and coincidentally we have a lot of the same parts. GPU, MOBO, GPU, and Case are the same so it gives me a good idea of what my build will look like. I love the White/Black contrast

Hey did you ever wind upgrading this system with an additional 16GB (2x8) of ram? Just curious is you were able to get it to run at 3200 with 32gb (4x8)
