Description

Thought I would give it ago building my first rig. Nothing was really any issue tbh. Cable management was a pita and loading windows because I forget to partition the SSD plus it wasn't seated right first time.

Only 2 real issues I have is the GPU is second hand and slighty warped but I got sent a RX 580 when I ordered RX 570 Sooooo and have GPU support enroute and the bios crashes for no reason other then I think its because it no likey the TV I have as my monitor ATM.

Everything else so far works as it should. Have a stable OC GPU at 9GB at 1455MHz and a 4.05MHz cpu at 1.312v

Part Reviews

CPU

No issues works well stright out the box and hardly even brakes a sweat playing triple A games. The stock cooler is ok but for long term oc id upgrade to something a bit more capable

Motherboard

Good board so far. Has way more then I need atm. The bios is unhappy displaying through a HDMI to a TV as it crashes.

Storage

Great value for money. Easy install. Works as it should

Video Card

The card is heavy and bends under its own weight your either need the mkii or a gpu support bracket. It works great and don't even break a sweat playing most triple A games when paired with a Ryzen 5 2600x and MSI pro carbon mobo

Case

Only real downer was cable management from CPU. But great value for money

Power Supply

Over kill for a bargin price. Why wouldn't you?

Case Fan

See alot of people having issues with these and as such got these second hand off ebay. I think the issues tbh are the mobos not the fans. Hooked them all up in series pluged them in to the header and they worked straight out off the bat both LED and smart cooling. Not the quietest of fans when fun chat but they keep everthing cool so far

Hi I'm planning to build my first PC soon (I don't know that much). I would like to know, is a 700W PSU necessary for a system like this? because I was planning to use a 600W PSU with a Ryzen 5 2600 and GTX 1060 (6GB).

no not really even a 550 watt psu you would do it, but if you wish to overclock then it would good to have a 700 hundred watt power supply

nah bruv a 550W is fine even if you want to overclock the ryzen 2600. idk why people like to overspend on a psu.

You clearly haven't built a pc before. Your PSU is nothing to skimp on. many cheap power supplies overheat and melt their cables, and some even catch fire. Getting a good PSU is also important when it comes to upgrading, as many new GPUs have a high power draw, not to mention the fact that power supplies lose wattage over time (why do you think that 80+ gold certified power supplies are a thing?) You should do your research before you give a poorly worded answer like that. Go build a computer, spend time on forums like linustechtips and r/buildapc and r/buildapchelp, as well as tomshardware, so that you are informed before you make crappy suggestions to people.

Chill out man. Why all the hate? Have a snickers. The est PSU for this particular build was a little over 315w, a 500w psu is more then sufficient and capable at stock clocks. However if those who wish to build this and upgrade the GPU and or over oc GPU and CPU then yes I would be looking for more head room.

I never said to skimp on a PSU. I just mentioned that a 550W psu is more than enough for this build. Take a chill pill brother.
