Description

First ever build.

I built this PC primarily for gaming over the next 3 or so years. I don't care about RGB lighting or overclocking (at this point), so everything remained stock, except for 2 added intake fans on the front.

System is running cool and performance is great.

Thanks to those who helped me in the parts forum to build this.

Great build looks great without any rgb strangely.

Just so you know, the fan on the stock cooler can be rotated by taking out the four screws at the corner of the cooler. It's purely an aesthetic thing but it would honestly bring that last little bit to the build, considering everything else looks great

Yea, that was one thing I struggled with in terms of making a decision on cable management. I wanted to tuck the cable in along side the RAM to get it out of the way. Putting it right side up wouldn't have allowed that cuz it was too short. I agree with you though.

Actually haven't had a good experience with those corsair sleeve bearing fans tbh, just make sure you don't strain the cable at the fan end so it doesn't disconnect at the hub like both of mine did lol (rip the sexy whale it was not fast). The rest of the parts are great.

They did feel cheap as I put them in. But they are pulling in the air quite well and seem to be quiet. If I have to make any mods in the future, I'll probably take them out and put in a single, larger fan.

i would prob recommend 2 140s of decent quality so you can lower the rpms and have positive air pressure in the case, you always want more air coming in the case then out

why a stock cooler?

The AMD stock cooler is both effective for performance and aesthetics. They usually look good in black and red builds.

I have no desire to overclock or add RGB, plus I heard great things about the stock cooler.

Great build! I would recommend putting the fans on the other side of the front bracket. I built in the H500i myself and that was one of my big mistakes. The fans will be choked of air like that.

Thank you. I noticed that about 3 days ago and moved them. Temps were already good under heavy cpu load (battlefield 5), but now they are even better.

Hey, I've been thinking about buying this Msi RTX 2070 and was curious to know if there is any way and if there is how bad is it? Thanks

I dont understand your question.

Is there GPU sag? Yes or no.
How much does it sag?

  • 13 months ago

No sag at all- yet. It went in tight and the mounting screw on the front bracket seems solid. Maybe over time it will start to drop, but as of now its sitting flat/perpendicular to the vertical components in the case.

Ok thank you for your input, more persuaded to get the Armour 2070 now haha
