Description

I built the computer for gaming at high frame rates and streaming. Originally the PC was build in a Fractal Design Focus G case and with an Gigabyte RX580 8 GB video card. I've loved building in Fractal Design cases thus far. They have excellent build quality and look great. I wouldn't purchase the Corsair fans again, as they cannot be software controlled, which makes it a royal pain to switch the colours. One of the reasons I swapped out the Gigabyte card was also due to its RGB software being subpar, with it often malfunctioning and defaulting to the rainbow puke mode. The Hue+ is great outside of the very thin, and fragile pins on the strips. I love the ryzen 1600, even if I lost the silicon lottery badly (at 1.35V it's only stable at 3.6 GHz). It encodes 1080p60FPS footage at slightly faster than real time. The only downside is that I'm usually CPU bound to around 90-100fps in most games other than FFXV since it's absurdly demanding.

Nice build. One question though, what CPU cooler did you use? Was it the stock one or did you forget to add it in?

It's pretty good so far, though I'm not entirely sold yet on if it was worth the extra money over the RX580 since I don't have a 1440p screen yet. I haven't got a ton of benefit outside of FFXV. It does run much cooler though (68C) even though it's a mini card.

Hey! was it easy to fit the LED strip in this case?

Yeah I found it pretty easy to! There is a number of places to route the cables.

I didnt try to put a strip down there since the pins on one of my led strips bent so I only had 3 remaining

The 1070 never goes above 70 Celsius and the stock cooler for the ryzen cpus is great imo

Not at the time I bought the card unfortunately (hooray for the crypto boom), nowadays I would have definitely spring for a triple fan 1080.

Upgrading to an AIO is on the list of things to do.
