Description

Ay it's good. I got the psu and graphics card off ebay. I look forward to upgrading this in like 5 years probably but who knows Im pretty cheap and not rich so I'll try to hold off till max 10 years. That's how long I had my PC before this one, 2010 iMac, pray with me brothers and sisters for a long lasting PC.

Part Reviews

Motherboard

The MB does the job but the software you having the option of installing to change the RGB is trash. The board is also flimsy, I recommend not making the mistake of going micro-atx with this and just buy the full ATX version.

Storage

so far works great but time will tell

Video Card

I bought it used. After finding out this GPU could be VERY loud, I was pleasantly surprised that it's very quiet and even at 70% its near silent in my h500.

Case

Good case but mine came with a bent usb frame next to the power button, still works though.

Power Supply

Silent, does the job, bought used to save cash.

Monitor

Meh, its probably the best option you can take if your trying to save money but personally something about matte screens just doesn't appeal to me the same as glass does.

Custom

So far so good, fast, cheap, is actually 480gb, but that doesn't make much of a difference to me.

one reason it might be really quiet is i doubt you are pushing that graphics card hard with a 1080p 75hz display. If you hooked up a 4k display you would see it ramping up or dropping clock speed. Not gonna Argue with your build though its a nice build especially for that price. My only recomendation would be add an intake fan or 2 due to positivice airflow and it forces more air to the gpu. Nice build!

Thanks and yea been thinking about buying a noctua fan for intake, when they go on sale. Do you have any recommendations for intake fans that arent crazy priced? Your right about the GPU it would probably sound like a jet engine from some vids ive seen. Prob gonna add a second monitor down the road, hopefully my GPU wont start screaming at me lol.

adding a second monitor is still easy on it unless you plan on having it render on both monitors (so effectively running ultrawide) but if you are just using it for discord or whatever it will go easy on it. Im not sure if you are looking for quiet over performance in fans but i personally have a few Kingwin CF-012LB they are 6 bucks a peice and super quiet (6 on ebay 6.50 on amazon though they do sell multipacks. Im not sure if they are "performance fans" at 40cfm but they are 900 rpm fans. however a couple of fans has to be better cooling then 0 fans right? truthfully though the card at a higher fan speed will be noisier then any case fan at a high rpm. otherwise the ARCTIC F12-120 mm are great fans too at 1350 rpm with 53cfm. they are 9 bucks a pop though. hope this helps

I believe you are mistaken for the RAM being a lie. It is true that it does go up to 3000mhz. You will probably have to "OC" it. The RAM saying 3000mhz means it is tested to go up to 3000mhz but you can even OC it further than that, which is out of the manufacturer's guaranteed speed. I had RAM once that only went to 1833 when it should be at 2133. Just had to do a soft OC and enable some settings and it went up to that with no downsides.

It is also SOMETIMES like that because of overvoltage risks, but Ryzens do better with faster ram so this should not be a problem

oh ok thanks. I think im gonna OC to 2600 to keep things safe.

If your motherboard can handle the voltage and your cpu supports it, you should definitely be able to use it to 3000mhz
