Description

So over the past Couple of months, I've Upgraded somethings. The Ryzen 7 1700 is still great, and can still be found for pretty cheap. I ran this chip at 3.6Ghz for a while, and now I've gotten it to run at 3.8Ghz at 1.192 Volts. The Deepcool cooler is pretty good. That mixed with the Liquid Metal helps keep my chip at 63c under load. The Motherboard is what you would expect from a x370 board. It's good for overclocking. 16 Gigs is the sweet spot for gaming and most programs. I had to manually set it to 3000Mhz. The Inland SSD is ok, It boots up windows fast enough. The Toshiba Drive can hold some of my games and some programs. The Seagate Drive holds most of my games and programs. The GTX 980 is aging, but it still runs all my games at 1080p Ultra settings with 60fps. (Yes I did paint it myself) The be quiet Pure Base 500 is a great case with tempered glass (Thats a plus for me) and it comes with 2 140mm fans. Evga makes some of the best PSUs and this 650w 80+ Gold unit should last me a good while. Windows 10 because why not. The Redragon Keyboard Is actually the white version, and it is pretty loud. I think I may get a Corsair one soon. Corsair makes the best mice IMO. The Monitors are old and I got them all for free, my main one is a 1080p 72Hz one though. The AKG Earbuds came for free with my phone. The Yeti Mic is great and I got it for super cheap.

did you consider x79 or x58 xeon processors when designing this build

I actually did at first, there was a local sale for a i7 3960x build with 12gb of ddr3 2133 ram and 2 770s in sli for $350. the only reason why I didnt go with that is because it was bought almost immediately. After that I got the ryzen stuff because of the easy future upgrades. I actually also have a old Asus x58 board with a old i7 in it, but games like FFXV didnt run very well on ultra.

Yeah I heard the old i7s are crappy and that’s why the xeons are treasured

I wouldn't really say that they are crappy, x58 i7s still have decent performance for being 11 almost 12 years old, I just wanted to play games at the highest details. x79 i7s are still pretty good chips, they can get about the same performance then a 7700k if you overclock.

Are you still on this build, pal? Are you still satisfied with the performance of the case and fans? Any additional fans added simce then lately?

I am still using this build, the only upgrades I've added are a NVME drive and a EK Custom Water loop. And personally I love this case, It looks amazing, it has a lot of room to build in, and the fans a dead quiet. the only fans I've added are the 2 120mm EK Varders, which I plan on switching out for some be quiet ones this spring.

I had a Arctic CPU Cooler a few years ago, they make amazing fans and coolers.

It's my first be quiet! product, and I can't say anything bad about it. The case looks great and the fans are pretty much dead silent. I'm very happy with my choice, and I hope you like yours!
