Description

I ddin't want to build a seperate machine for streaming, as well as sick of straining 4 cores to complete content creation. Moved towards AMD for the first time in my life and so far it's a great CPU. The 2700X streams PUBG from a 1440p canvas rescaled to 1080p60fps while maintaining 100+FPS in PUBG aside from the occasional FPS drop when it gets crazy in the cities. When not streaming it almost performs as well as the i7-7700K I used to run with.

Renders high quality videos very quickly, and never gets close to 100% CPU usage during any other task. I highly recommend this CPU.

Part Reviews

Memory

RGB effects destroy the G.Skill Trident Z RGB series. Works at advertised speeds with XMP enabled.

Storage

Fast, but obviously not the fastest; a fantastic SSD for an OS and some smaller competitive games!

Video Card

RGB, amazing back plate, runs a little warm. Runs every game I own (PUBG, BF1, BF4, WOW, and many many more [THANKS STEAM]), well over 120FPS consistently, sometimes over 140 on the higher end games!

Power Supply

Wire are stiff, just like everything else; however the rubber coasting at the ends of the wires are really long and impossible to bend which made cable management for the Motherboard cables a nightmare. HOWEVER, everything else about what really matters is perfect! Fully modular so I can simply replace the cables!

The NH D15 is a beast of an air cooler, I would recommend a 280 rad for a real step up from it. 240 will get you slightly lower temps but it's honestly more of a side step.

It's a difficult decision to make with the style I wish to use, and the poor pumps and leaking issues reported with matching coolers!

What is that crazy bright light at the back of the case? Nice part selection for a white build.

Bakkasura submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

Apevia Multi-Color 120mm fans! I forgot to add those to the parts list, they aren't as bright as the camera on my phone makes them out to be, but add a really cool look to the interior!

those memory cards look boss

Bakkasura submitter 1 Build 2 points 12 months ago

Thank you! I am so happy with them, stands out from the standard deviation!

i think everybody does one of these, but it looks amazing regardless

Bakkasura submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

That they do, but now I have one on my desk and it's so fun to gawk at!

Looks good but the tower on the air cooler ruins it for me if I was you I would get aio

The DeepCool Captain 240EX RGB White is on the way for your viewing pleasure! :)

Bakkasura submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

I was actually using that to hold over on something that just recently become available! The DeepCool Captain 240EX RGB White AIO. Check back here next Monday or so and the build will have that installed as well as a NZXT Hue+ my buddy sent to me!

Fantastic setup. Have you noticed any high pitched noises regarding your RAM? Very compelled by the Night Hawk ram, but seeing a few people stating that a high pitched noises emits from them, and no known way to silence it.

Bakkasura submitter 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

I actually noticed on the initial install it did have that sound emitting from the RAM, however after a few boots over a couple hours it no longer makes that sound at all. I highly suggest the Night Hawk, I'll be buying a second set for this build next week!

What's the height on your RAM?

Bakkasura submitter 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Exactly, I don't know. However it did fit under the NS-DH15 Noctua air cooler I had first installed on this build if that helps as a point of reference.

twf46 1 point 9 months ago

Yes it did. Thank you!

Bakkasura submitter 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Glad to be of service, have fun building!

Are the lights on the fans changeable and how do they perform?

Bakkasura submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

These fans are fixed Red Blue Green LEDs, provides an almost offset 3D effect on shadows which I like. They have an awesome amount of air going through them, and they're extremely silent. I bought a second pack when upgrading the case and the quality was solid on every fan again!

How are you hitting 4.6GHz on a 2700X? I have never heard of one going past 4.45, even in short bursts with lightly threaded apps.

It was a cheaper case, however the looks of that case drew me in. It was surprisingly spacious for the components I installed (Aside from the the DH-15S of course). The only disadvantages to this case I can really complain about it the lack of an extra fan slot on the top, and front if I had wanted to use a 360 Radiator. Though, I can make it work with a 280!
