Description

This build ended up being a beautiful thing for my first personal build. The following are items that I would caution others looking at a similar list:

THE AIO IS THE HARDEST PART. TAKE YOUR TIME. I thought I had put the AIO on the right way and put it in the case and it was on the wrong way. I tried to see if the cars could run underneath the display, but under the tension the AIO ripped the CPU out of the socket. I thought all had been lost tbh. Luckily I took the cpu off and put it back in and put the AIO back on the correct way and that was that.

H510 “removable” Radiator - for something that is supposed to be removable it is the hardest thing to get in and out of the case. Maybe I’m missing something, but it was impossible. Also to note, in order for there to be enough room in the case the radiator bracket has to be in the middle. This is NOT stated in the instructions which btw are terrible.

All that being said got the computer to boot up on the first try with a little scare because the monitor was off. Would I do it again? I would probably opt to just go with an air cooling design in the future and for first time builders. Way to much added hassle with the AIO and radiator. Would also probably go with a different case, there are a lot of nice things about the H510 like the cable management, but just about everything else sucks except the looks.

I’ve been playing Borderlands 3 mostly and on the Bad*** settings without motion blur I am getting between 85 and 100 FPS consistently which is beyond what I expected. I did have some weird issues with the Witcher 2 having low frame rates, but I assume I was missing some optimization settings.

Oh I almost forgot, the only other complaint is that it is impossible to sync the Gigabyte 5700xt through the MSI dragon centre I have given up :P

Are you playing on 1440p because I’m not sure a rx 5700xt should be running 85 -100 FPS in borderlands 3 at 1080p.

I'm playing at 1080p see the link for benchmarks of the card on the game: https://www.gpucheck.com/compare-game-gpu/borderlands-3/amd-radeon-rx-5700-xt-vs-amd-radeon-vii

The DX12 update has improved fps for me a bit.

Oh that makes sense. It's because of optimization.

Any equivalent motherboards by gigabyte that can replace this? or MSI GPUs? It messes with my OCD to mix match brands... If not its cool lol, Thanks In Advance! It looks great

Hey, thanks for commenting! In terms of gigabyte boards, the offerings at this price point don't seem to have as favourable reviews as the MSI board which is one of the reasons I went with MSI. If you do go Gigabyte the option would basically be the Gigabyte Aorus Elite X570 either wifi or non wifi version. In terms of MSI 5700 xt cards there's the MSI Mech OC which I haven't heard much about, but looks like it could be a good card. I'd try to find some thermal information on the card though before jumping on it.

If you have the money to spend I would potentially suggest going Asus and getting the Strix Gaming OC 5700 XT and the Asus TUF Gaming X570 motherboard!
