Description

I got this PC to game and Record my gaming sessions. Used to have better cooling, but my old pc broke down because of a waterleak from the costum loop on my cpu, it leaked on my ram and powersupply that caused a powerspike. Breaking half my system.

But i got to say: aircooling aint bad. Hitting 67c on CPU on Load. And 70c on GPU. But i got good room temps that can bring it down, i always let in fresh air everyday.

So here is my rig, hope you guys like it.

Part Reviews

CPU

A very great CPU,

Able to push the system to max. And still be able to record/stream while gaming. I got it running at 3.8 Ghz all cores (12 of them). I could get it higher but i dont want to overheat my system, right now i get 61c max. at 4.0 Ghz i had 71c. which is a little high for my liking, but i know it wont damage it even if i was at that temp. but rather save than sorry.

CPU Cooler

great cooler, works like a charm, the only downside it that is get very loud when under high load. 50-60c but in idle you berely notice it. good thing i wear headphones :D

Motherboard

no issue so far, got it for like 1 month now. to bad it doesnt have more usb 2 ports, it only has 2, had to put aside 2 USB ports from the case to get my AIO connected.

Memory

one side is good and one side is bad.

the good: great RGB, really adds to the case. when stable it works flawlessly.

the bad: i cant get it stable as advertized. 16-18-18-36 3200mhz
the only way it will stablelize is when i put it on 16-15-15-36 2800mhz (FIXED)

but its only a small differance, the timings make up for it.

(update: with new CPU: Ryzen 9 3900x , all problems went away, running max speed now with correct timings, had Ryzen 2700x before)

Storage

managed to repair my old SSD from my old rig, using it as storage now :P

Storage

Managed to save my nvme as well, using it to play Star Citizen :D such quick load times.

Storage

great ssd, just as fast in reading as the EVO, just slower in writing. to bad it didnt come in the correct format. i had to format it into the correct one. only could use 2TB at the beginning. but i managed to format it without losing data, by using 3rd party software. i can use all 4TB now. ofcourse i did have to make 2 partions for this, 2TB each

Video Card

best card i ever had, had a gtx 1080 windforce OC, before this. with this card i got 20-30fps increase. Combined with a Ryzen 3900x and 32gb ram, this thing is a beast.

Case

roomy, yet mid-tower, and had a glass window, with RGB front. what can i say more 10/10

Power Supply

used to have a PSU with already connected cables. that was a mess. now i can remove and attach cables. suddenly i got more space :D and less management. 10/10

Operating System

works like a charm, had to disable auto update tho.

Case Fan

RGB fans. really adds to the case. love it. had these over from my old build. (same system inside a thermaltake tower 900)

Monitor

had 3 of these until i threw one in with my mouse during rage while gaming, so dont throw mouses guys XD screen has no protection layer. other than that, best screens i have ever had/have.

The ram you have listed are not supported by the motherboard with that cpu at that speed. https://www.aorus.com/X570-AORUS-ULTRA-rev-10 Click on download and choose memory, then download the document for pinnacle ridge, search for the ram part no. You have. All I wanted to say is, it is not the hardware.

Your missing an "r" in recording in the title. Good build though +1!
