Description

Main applications will be geographic information systems (GIS), cartography, some creative media, and, of course, a gaming system as well. The Fractal R6 USB-C Tempered Glass was chosen based on reviews and build quality. It did not disappoint. Easily one of the best cases I have built within. Plenty of room for being midsize tower and feature rich. It also really does help dampen sound of fans and internals versus other glass panel cases. I also love the motherboard, the MSI Meg x570 Unify. This is a feature rich non-RGB board with incredible VRM for the price. It does have a small onboard fan like many x570 boards for cooling, but I have only noticed it on during boots or intense load. Otherwise it remains off the majority of the time. I have a Ventus 2070 Super that is one of the best values vs performance cards right now. Perhaps only the 5700 xt chip has better value cards for performance. However, though I wanted an AMD build this time around, as I really like the 3000 series, I couldn't pass up the sale MSI had on the Ventus. I am really pleased with the card so far. Has plenty of power to handle most AAA 1440p 60hz ultra and 1440p 144hz on medium to high settings. I don't have a desire to do 4k/2160 gaming yet, nor did I feel the need to afford a 2080 Super, much less a TI. I don't own a 4k TV either. Perhaps I might make the jump up in resolution down the road as GPU hardware becomes more affordable in the 2160 @ 60+ hz range. But the money saved on not going 2080 or higher afforded me much better board and a few other improved components. The performance is amazing and the AMD 3700x really shines on this system build. What else can I say? I love it. The build really hit the sweet spot for me.

I want to get this board, and I know there's no RGB on the mobo, but are there RGB connectors that your cooler is hooked up to? or are you using a supplied controller?

The aio cooler I've installed is the H100i PRO by Corsair. It's RGB is controlled through the mobo's CPU PWM fan connector. I use Corsair's iCUE software to adjust its lighting. The Unify does have several 4 and 3-pin RBG LED connectors however if you have devices that require them.

Are you able to turn off the LED on the unify motherboard?

I was looking for a build that had this GPU mounted vertical, nice! Looks good man. How are the temps with it mounted that way?
