Hello guys!

So this is my first time building a PC - not that I don't know how but before I was just lazy and didn't want to do it myself :) So this time I retired my old system (that was like 6 years old) and decided I want to have something more modern and that can keep me going for some time in future.

Only part I reused for this build is my RX 580 from previous build. Now I'm kind of regretting that I did buy this card last summer when prices were still high due crypto mining. Anyway I've this card overclocked to 1410Mhz core (+50Mhz from stock), 9000Mhz memory (+250Mhz from stock) and set 150% power limit. Tried increasing core clock more but due poor (and loud) cooling solution that this card has temperature is unbearable and card starts termo throttle.

CPU is clocked 4Ghz on all cores @ auto voltage ~1.33V. I could push for 4.1Ghz, but then voltage is around 1.4V and I'm not sure if it is stable (haven't run any executive tests for that speed). 4.2Ghz is just not happening with anything way over 1.4V ;/ Memory is running almost fine rated 3600Mhz profile. Just needed to increase voltage to 1.36V (+0.01) to keep system stable after cpu was overclocked.

For the case - I just like how spectacular Meshify C Dark TG looks and I did setup nice airflow by installing Kraken rad with two included 140mm NZXT coolers to front as intake, two included in case Fractal 120mm to top as exhaust and Thermaltake LED cooler as back exhaust.

I've themed this build using white and red RGBs and this was finalized by acrylic graphic card holder with Umbrella Corp logo :).

External peripherals I did have from before (like everything else except the PC itself) so didn't have to do much there. One thing that I may update in future is maybe sound card. Onboard sound is ok, but comparison to what I did have before (Creative Core3D solution) it does not sound the same and my Yamaha amp does nice job as good DAC and amp, but not much it can do if sound that comes from PC is not superb in the beginning.

Let me know what you think about this build! Happy to hear some comments or suggestions.

That's a GPU support bracket. I agree.. It is sick

Looks amazing! Nice job! Where would one go to acquire a GPU bracket such as yours? Looking for a Game of Thrones type vibe.

Awesome, thank you! I never knew this sort of thing existed. Have fun with your new PC! :)
