Description

This was my first PC build ever, and it was a really fun experience! I have just played Xbox my whole life, and never really thought about PC gaming. I actually ended up needing a PC for work, so I figured why not build a gaming PC? After that, I never went back to console gaming. Building this computer has really shown me that the possibilities are endless when it comes to PC gaming, and it's awesome! I am also planning on upgrading my monitor to either 1440p 27in, or 1080p Ultrawide. I'd appreciate any advice on this, because I am having trouble deciding, haha. If anyone is wondering, I got the sleeved cables from EnSourced, the AIO sleeves from CableMod, the Ryzen fan grill, and GPU backplate from V1tech. I also skinned my 850 EVO, and the side of my power supply with white carbon fiber. Thanks for checking out my build! Any advice is appreciated!

Part Reviews

CPU

Haven't had any problems with this. Amazing CPU. I almost went with the 1700, but I don't know how to overclock yet, so I got the 1600x. Once I learn how to OC, I will definitely do it.

CPU Cooler

This is probably a little overkill, as I won't be overclocking yet. But I really wanted it, haha. Keeps the CPU nice and cool, and looks stunning!

Motherboard

This motherboard looks great, and has been working fantastic!

Memory

Great memory, but I can't get it past 2666 without it crashing. Guess I'll wait for more Bios updates. Looks amazing though!

Storage

Super fast, I only have one right now, but I will be getting a few more soon.

Video Card

I LOVE this card! It is a beast!

Case

In my opinion, this is the best looking case on the market. Also, I haven't had any problems with bad airflow, like some people.

Power Supply

Awesome PSU. It's so nice to have a fully modular power supply.

Case Fan

Very quiet fans, and look great.

Keyboard

This keyboard is absolutely AMAZING! I love it so much.

Mouse

This mouse is so great for gaming! I love all the buttons on it.

Mouse

This was purchased long before I realized I needed a gaming mouse, but it's actually really nice to have one for gaming, and one for whatever else!

Nice touch with the AIO sleeving. Maybe i'm OCD but i love clean cabling.

Thanks man. I also love clean cabling, looks so much better than having a mess of cables.

Did you paint the "wires" coming from the x62 yourself? Or is there a white cabled version?

  • 26 months ago

Those are mesh sleeves from CableMod, custom fit for the x62. They just wrap around the tubes, and clip on the ends.

Hey wicked build! :D

Just wondering if you've had any problems with those 140mm fans up top? I've been through 2 sets now because they seem to rattle over 50%-60%, above that it's really bad :(

Thanks! Mine actually do the same thing as well, it's annoying! I did manage to shut them up for a little bit by putting pressure on the part that they mount on. I tried to move the top mount back and forth, and it stopped for a minute as well.

Kinda contemplating getting another brand :/ They look so good but the rattling is terrible :( Let me know if you find a solution to making them not rattle :)

I see Asus released a new bios on the 20th, I'm thinking of the same ram / motherboard combination myself - have you been able to get it to 3200MHz yet?

  • 25 months ago
  • 1 point

This is actually an Asrock MB, but I haven't gotten 3200 stable, I'm stable at 2933. Although I didn't do all the timings myself, I just used the XMP profile.

I like how you skinned your psu and ssd. Do you mind linking the Carbon Fiber you used. Also did you skin the PSU or make a cover for the whole in the shroud? Thanks build looks awesome!

  • 25 months ago

Well I completely ripped your idea off to carbon fiber wrap my PSU and SSD(Used black instead of white) and it looks amazing!! Thanks for the reply!

My friend! I have the same case and cooler. Please how did you fit the radiator in front? How did you put that lower?

In my case on the bottom have a plate which it covers the hard drive. Even if i remove this plate, bellow it is the HDD. So there is no way to put the radiator lower like you. Im so confused.

  • 20 months ago

I don't have any hard drives, so I removed the plate, and the hard drive bays.

Wow, thank you so much! That is awesome to hear from an experienced PC builder! I was thinking about going Intel, but Ryzen was just such a good value for the money, and suited my needs well. Anyways, much appreciated! :)
