Description

About the build: I started off wanting to start building a custom pc about 2-4 years ago but never had the money. I submitted my current gaming set up at the time to swashin's pimp my setup ep 114 and got a big fail on his show. Since that happened (by the way that setup took me 10 hours to cable manage) I set out to build this one. I worked since last thanksgiving and made $10/hr. Had enough to buy these parts some parts I got for free which I will talk about and others I bought over 1-5 years. Enjoy!

----ps buy this for your pc https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jJX2FT/3m-adjustable-cpu-stand-cs100mb gets it up off the carpet :) i posted a picture of it too

Benchmarks: Look at pics.. I run all games at 1080p 144fps for my 144hz display and record using obs so I put the rest of the power to obs.

-- Part Selection:

CPU: Amd Ryzen 7 1700, I overclocked this to 3.9 stable @ 1.4 volts and can't get any higher and when I do it boots into windows at 300mhz I'm a new to overlocking to if you have any tips I'd like them.

CPU Cooler: I ordered the Cryorig R1 universal for overclocking my ryzen 1700 to 3.9 and for ram clearance issues

Motherboard: I chose the Asrock x370 over getting the msi b350 tomahawk, simply because at the time the asrock was only $20-$40 and had more features like wifi and Bluetooth. Besides that the bios is easy to get around and customer support is amazing.

Memory: Corsiar LED ddr4 3000...blue led and fast not much else to say :) although I was going with the 3200 model but found this was $40 cheaper at the time and read up and found out that ryzen was hard to get past 2933

Storage: OK so for storage I bought a Intel 600p m.2 ssd becuase I wanted an ssd The WD Black I took out of my old digital storm gaming rig(dad bought it back in 2013)I received last Christmas prior to building this after he upgraded. If you want the specs i'm happy to give them to you. Then for the Samsung drive, this is in the rosewill hdd enclosure plugged into my negear nighthawk for file sharing. I received this drive from my friend.

Video Card: AMD rx 580 from sapphire, I chose this card after realizing the 580 would be out soon, so i waited instead of buying an rx 480. Originally I put this card in the before mentioned digital rig to replace its graphics card. I am going to keep in in this rig until amd vega is released to the public. I overclocked with afterburner to 9gb/sec ram speeds and 1.450 ghz on the core....when using this profile load temps went up 10c and i only gained 6fps in furmark

Case: Silverstone raven rvo2b-ew, I wanted a very good case for air cooling. I wanted a dust free case. I wanted a small case. I wanted a stylish case. Well I got everything I wanted except for it being small. I mean it is smaller than a full atx case. But This case can cool my gpu right now is at 28c with its fans off. my cpu is at 32c at idle with an overclock of 3.9 @ 1.4v its very quiet. For the dust practically none just got to go change those filters every 2 weeks or so and clean the inside with a rag about once a year.

Power Supply: I was going to get one with corsair link but decided it wasn't worth the extra $40-$60 so I went with the EVGA g2 850. Top tier power supply not much else to say.

Operating System: I am running on windows 10 education as My academy's web store is sponsored by Microsoft and didn't feel like paying for a new OS. It has the same features as home but has better security.

Monitor: I went with the samsung as it is the best 1080p monitor on the market 144hz refresh , 1ms response time, 125% srgb support and calibrated from the factory, and it has a curved matte va pannel.

Other Parts: I will update this if people ask questions in comments on parts but as is i bought the chroma from my work for $16 new and got the g502 for christmas. and the computer riser is a must I didn't want it on the carpet

Aw that sucks, you can spend about $400 on a used one, Intel i7 920,$30 motherboard $40-$80 - case $10-$20, CPU fan $5-$8 unless you want op fan $30, psu-$40 all used parts then parent with a rx 580 8gb or 1060 6gb 144fps in anything 1080p

hey man nice pc. did you have trouble installing the r1 ultimate on your am4 motherboard? i dont have r1 universal but r1 ultimate. I received the mounting kit TYPE A but i can't seem to figure out how to properly install. Let me know how you did it. Thanks

What I did was I used everything included and you probably had trouble because it just kept sliding like the screws were tight but too long, what I did was included in the original mounting kits there were like rubber or foam or plastic triangle pices that are squishy and put those on the screws to keep them from rotating with the new am4 mounting kit

Well done, and my vote for your build.

Well, I'm pretty much stuck between Taichi or Killer. How is your board performing? I'm not OC obsessed person, yet I might do some experiments on the planned home build (awaiting for Vega; 1700 is final CPU). What do you think about your board?

I'm also pondering on that LED stock cooler because it looks good and offers good performance under decent OC loads. My point, I'm looking at Cryorig LP cooler or any other make which gives lowest possible noise. How is your cooler working? Temp/Noise?

I hope you are enjoying that build, cheers!

My cooler is super quiet and I wouldn't recommend anything smaller air wise, and I did use the stock cooler as well but with no overclocking and will say that it performs nicely, I love the board no problems with it love the built in wifi :)

Temps are listed in the build but tbh it's not a good way to judge it as ambient temps are going to be different for you and I and our cases and airflow as my case has the best air cooling on the market :)

I have a question, when I got the ram it said it was for Intel, is it still compatible with ryzen then? I'm filing a return order but seeing this I'm wondering if I should wait first

Hey man think of it like this, a building a computer is like building a car, you can but a ford engine in it, a chevy transmission it's okay if you Mix and match. Same way for computers. Think back before Ryzen it didn't matter what type of ram you had as long as it was ddr3 it would work on intel or amd same still applies. Any ram will work in ryzen it's just that the Ryzen supported ram will over lock over 2933mhz which for me I didn't feeel like spending money so I bought 3000mhz rated ram, so to answer your question obviously it will work because I have it and in the description I ram all my test, and when I bought it it said on corsairs website that it is ryzen compatible
