Description

This is my main build, the last (and only) one I uploaded was kind of lame so I decided to upload the better one.

The SeaGate Firecudas are in RAID 0 (i know i know).

The GPU installed isn't actually the XTREME model but PCPP doen't have it.

Also the GAMMAX GT CPU Cooler doesn't come with a second fan clip so I zip-tied the second fan on because I had an extra matching fan lying around.

I would of gone with a r5 2600 and then gotten faster RAM. Ryzen works better with faster RAM.

Other than that, nice build (I like the inverted layout) +1

he can help it a little bit by overclocking the RAM

Is that a case mod? Where did you buy the case? +1

Case from NewEgg, the only thing I changed was the side panel.

I may have to try this on a similar Raijintek case I got for someone. Any tips?

I recommend it!

Best thing to do is be very careful with your cord management as their cases are compact and it can get messy fast.

Second thing is to make use of Raijinteks modular style case, pretty much every piece can be taken off with just phillips screws so you can really move things around to your liking before you put the case back together.

EDIT: Also depending on where your PCI slots are and how long your PSU is you can fit a larger GPU than what the specs say.

According to the specs the case only fits up to 280mm (11 in) but with a shorter PSU and a MoBo with it's PCI 3.0 slot moved down I can fit up to a 342mm (13.5 in) GPU.

You should OC the RAM to 3200.

Ryzen would have worked better with faster RAM but whatever floats your boat

Just a few things: 1. 2 sticks of 8GB DDR4-3200MHz RAM goes for the same price as the RAM you bought. Just so you know Ryzen chips go better with higher frequency RAM. 2. You can save a ton of money by finding an old Windows computer and download the latest update onto a flash drive, then buying a product key from a third-party site. Otherwise, great build!

  1. Thanks I realize that now haha. I should have bought faster RAM, as of right now I have the RAM stable at 2800 MHz (because everyone told me to OC it).

  2. I did that already! {reddit software swap baby}

AWESOME BUILD! and I love the case you used too! The case in the photos is WHITE, but the part list shows black. What case did you use?

  • 2 months ago

Raijintek Styx, PCPP did not have the White model listed so I just clicked the black case. They are the same price on Newegg.

I own the same Styx case (in blue, no window) and I am amazed at the decent GPU temperatures that you reach, especially given the powerful RTX 2080 (a TDP of around 215W) in your build. And surprisingly, you don't even have any case fans installed in the top.

Sorry for the late reply! But I do actually have 2 x 120mm fans right above the GPU.

I must have initially missed the fans because they weren't listed in the part list, but after looking more carefully I was able to spot them in the first photo after all.

That GPU temperature under load of 72 degrees Celsius was measured with the (modded) side panel attached, I presume?

This is great to see, since I'm planning on upgrading my existing rig to this case and gpu. They're listed as incompatible length wise on here. Gorgeous build!
