Ay what's goin on.

About the build.

I built this thing a while ago and never posted it for some reason, it was my second personal system (since been sold unfortunately, yeet will be missed). The main focus of this system was value and baller aesthetics, which means most of the parts were purchased for really good deals second hand. Noteworthy deals include the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M case with a full tempered glass panel and white interior for 45 dollars 0 tax and the deepcool 3 in 1 rgb pwm fans for 35 + tax, and the dope strix b350-f board for 100, all prices CAD btw. The next system I build for myself will be a much higher end (shooting for like idk 1500 or something like that) although I don't know if I can convince myself to ever purchase a new gpu again, they just lose value so quickly.

About Me.

I've been a pc guy for the majority of my life. I remember tricking out my garbage dell latitude e6400 laptop with a backlit keyboard and looking into ram upgrades (I never went for it because that was when I wasn't aware of how large the computer parts and custom pc market was and all I could find was upgrades with crucial's auto detect upgrades on their website which were too expensive for me) when I was like 12. Then when I was around 13 I became aware of the custom system market and I've been obsessed ever since. I'm majoring in computer engineering tech this September after a much needed year long break. Also I've been teaching myself about electronic music production and I need a stage name, any suggestions lmao? Also I need new build names, must be The _ Whale. thx bye

Part Reviews

CPU

Fantastic chip for the price. Really happy that ryzen finally made quad core gud processors available to the masses.

CPU Cooler

Hey that's pretty good.

Motherboard

Dope board, really disappointed that I can't have multiple lighting zones considering the 2 rgb headers.

Storage

Paid too much but really good drive.

Video Card

Great value card on the secondary market right now at least.

Case

Really cool case especially for what I bought it at, unfortunately was missing case fans and rgb rings also case screws and some covers but hey 45 dollars is 45 dollars (cad). Also was going to make a few custom whale edition metal covers to replace some in the case and on the graphics card but I sold the system. Oh well.

Power Supply

Got a really good deal on it new at Canada Computers. Fantastic and good looking psu.

Operating System

Can't tell you where I got it lmayo

Case Fan

Bought it from a friend whos nzxt cooler died :( but he got a new one :). Really good looking and sounding pwm fan although it does this weird thing where some screws aren't long enough and when you screw it in the rubber mounts pull out of where they are supposed to be but whatever.

Case Fan

Awesome value. Picked it up for 35 at Canada Computers def a steal. PWM braided cables maybe a bit too short but whatever. Also good bearings and rubber corners.

How does the gammax compare to the hyper 212 evo?

I know I would want this more for the white.

I haven't done temperature comparisons but I've held/installed both, and used the gammax, and the gammax is definitely a heftier cooler. I imagine it is slightly better performance wise, and I think it looks much nicer!

Idk Mine I named stormbreaker even though I don't call it that in person. Maybe look up norse or greek gods, and find one that has a color scheme that matches. (example: poseidon if your build is blue) Or mythological creatures, like a dwarf for small form factor builds.

good idea, although I usually just think of a stupid inside joke with my buddy and add The _ Whale to it
