Description

Following an upgrade to the Ryzen 9 3950X, this is the latest iteration of my main PC. Several years in the making, so some of the part prices are not quite accurate. Please feel free to ask any questions. Will add more/better photos soon.

The rgb is a bit to busy

I would agree. I'm just not sure exactly what more static color scheme I want.

A deep purple with the black could look nice

How was it building in the 500D? Curious because I might just build in it for my next PC

It wasn't too bad. If you have hard drives and SSDs mounted in the back, however, it leaves a bit to be desired in terms of cable management space, especially with the Commander Pro and the Lighting Node Pros taking up space. I don't have any hard drives, so I was able to take those trays out and use the space there. The power supply basement was also a little difficult to deal with, since the size of the power supply and the number of cables coming out of it left very little room there. Aside from all that and having the long radiator to get in there, everything else was pretty easy.

Just out of curiosity, where did you get that desk and chair from and how are they doing for you? Great build btw

Thanks! The desk is an old drawing table that my grandmother used for painting and other art things (she was an art teacher). The chair is just a Staples Hyken mesh desk chair. Not too expensive, but nicely adjustable. At the time I got it I didn't really have the money for something like a DXRacer or other equivalent.

Both are working out pretty well. The drawing table surprisingly holds the weight of all the monitors pretty well, but it is a pain to make small adjustments with respect to moving it due to the folding legs. The chair is also pretty nice, but one of the arm rests has a tear in the side from me putting a lot of pressure on it with my elbow. Not the worst thing in the world.

needs more rgb and whats the point of having it on the ground?

I have it on the ground on a plank of wood mainly because I would like it on the desk but don't have the space, and I just haven't had the time to go and look for a nice shelf or something to put it on. I will do that eventually, but for now it is at least isolated from the carpet. With my bike trainer I'm also a little low on space around the desk so it makes it harder to place stuff.

Did u removed Corsair mp600 Heatsink and put into the mobo m.2 under his own shield/heatsink?

  • 1 month ago

I did not. I kept the stock heatsink on it. I thought it was going to be more trouble than it was worth to do that, plus I figured the stock one would ultimately be better for cooling, since it at least has fins, whereas the little M.2 slot cover heatsink was essentially just a bar of metal with thermal pads on it.

Nice build. I upgraded from a 570x case to a 500D and the extra top fan space means my fans aren't visible; I've been plotting how to pad them downwards to make them more visible. What did you do to make yours visible?

Nice build! What CPU did you upgrade from? How's the game performance?

Why did you take the win 10 pro instead of home? I'm just curious about the benefits. Also, I would take the 2080 ti founders edition instead of the 1080 ti, it has better specs, and costs the same. EDIT: Also, where did all those fans go? I only see 3 fans other than the 3 fan radiator.

Um. 2080Ti is easily double the cost of the 1080Ti he has for equal quality (ICX / FTW3) and only has one of them, his list is most likely messed up.

I'll answer all of the questions from here. Not all of the parts are brand new. I had the 1080ti's from my old build (this build but older motherboard, cpu, ram, power supply), so that's why I don't have a 2080ti, otherwise I would. I'm waiting for Ampere at this point, then both of those cards will go into the build that some of the parts I upgraded from went into.

I had a Windows 10 Pro license from my university, so there was no reason to choose Home. Benefits: not really a whole lot that I'm specifically taking advantage of.

With the fans, I think I accidentally added an extra set of three. Three of them already came with the case, so I bought two three-packs of fans for the cooler. I'll make sure to fix that, thanks for pointing that out!

To note, some of the prices are not quite accurate as to what I actually spent. I was just lazy and let the current prices fill in those details, since they were fairly close. Eventually I'll update the list to be more accurate, since I'm actually curious myself as to what the total cost was.

the founders edition costs the same as the 1080ti ou used
