Hello fellow gamers! This is my first gaming pc build, it feels great to play CS:GO and TF2 at max settings without lag. In regards to why I used older-gen Ryzen; I built this before Ryzen+ was released. Anyways, here are my opinions on the parts:

Ryzen 1600X: Great processor, No problems with it and I feel no need to overclock. Lets me play older games with max settings and runs cool.

Masterliquid ML120L RGB CPU Cooler: No problems, installing was a bit messy since this was my first build. Keeps my R5-1600X cool and is pretty quiet.

MSI-B350 Tomahawk: Great motherboard, red back-lighting is a bonus and was easily installed.

Corsair Vengeance LED Ram: Looks cool and lets me open multiple chrome tabs and a game at the same time.

Storage: More than enough, boots windows in a few seconds.

Thermaltake Smart 650-W: Does the job but I really wish I went for a fully-modular PSU since cable management was a nightmare with all the extra cables.

MSI Gaming X 1060: Great card, handles all the games I want to play well and is more than enough for my 75hz monitor.

NZXT S340: Great beginner case, made cable management easier with a non-modular PSU.

Fans: Corsair SP120s keep my parts cool and look pretty, no complaints.

Peripherals: Having a mechanical keyboard feels great, I can type a lot faster and have no input lag. 7.1 stereo is a great change when compared to my old 2.1 headphones. Mouse serves its purpose as a great budget mouse.

Thanks for checking out my first build and have a superb day!

The case is pretty wide and there is plenty of room for cable management. There is a lot of thumbscrews in the case but most of them require a screwdriver. Overall, I like this case's design and think it will be a great case for a low-mid price pc. Thanks for the comment :).
