Description

Build was stressful considering it was my first, but out of all of it I have a few complaints and a few praises. Corsair gives horrible directions so be warned. If you do anything other than exactly what they want you will receive no help. The corsair h100i platinum cooler is amazing, looks gorgeous, rgb is great. I put my radiator up front and between the case and the hardware for it, it was kind of difficult. They dont tell you the hardware screws deep into the fins of the radiator. I dont like it but it's the only way it works so send it home I guess. Other than that do what you want with the radiator and fans, theyll look great anywhere! The case is really helpful with instructions but the back space for all the wires could be a little bigger. Power cables are fairly difficult to stuff in there for cable management. Ryzen 7 3800x CPU is a beast, no doubt about it. 2070 super from msi seems a little cheap but it is a fairly decent looking card and it runs great so I approve. No complaints and everything else works well with the rest of the system.

If you haven't already, make sure you increase your RAM speed in BIOS to 3200 as your screenshot shows you down at 2133!

Will do, just took pictures for the build purpose, still have to tune and add software! But thanks!

Your PSU is upside down. The fan is intake so should be taking air from below (as long as its meshed on your case. not sucking hot air from inside the case.

hey Juggernautpwner,

Nice work on your first build! I am actually going to be making a PC rather similar in components - same motherboard, cpu, ram (though 32gb), M.2, case & PSU - more or less having a different gpu and cpu cooler.

I'm wondering, if it's possible, would you be able to upload a picture of the finished product put together? If possible, I'd love to see a full shot of the side, with the side panel removed and pc turned off?

I've been trying to mentally map the build and been trawling through countless builds - which is how I stumbled upon yours.

Also, not sure what corsair issues you had, but I had a horrendous time dealing with their support in the past and choose to limit my choices with them.

Will upload new pictures here in the next day or so to ensure all angles are covered!

Also the main issue with corsair is their directions for their fans/radiator cpu cooler. They dont describe anything about driving in the screws through the fins on the radiator. It's not a big issue but I was very hesitant on doing it cause personally I was hoping for like a nut plate or something instead of just sending the screws threw the fan and into the fins of the radiator to ensure its snug to the case. It's more of a personal prefrence to not damage the cooler than a manufacturing issue. Just wish it was build slightly better is all.

Cheers for the additional pictures! Appreciate that.

As for corsair, I believe I have a vague memory of having the same reaction to you the first time I installed one.
