Description

I use this rig to edit videos as well as play games. It works quite well. Right now I am playing through Satisfactory and even while recording it, I get a solid 60+ fps on ultra settings. Do note that I had to cut off one cm of plastic off from the gpu cooler in order to make the gpu fit in the case. The internals of the gpu were not affected as the one cm came from a plastic hood that jutted out from the gpu heatsink.

Also note that the optical drive is completely optional and I am using one that I had just lying around that is around five years old.

Did you just forget to plug in the other 6 pin for the photo or is it running off the single 6 pin connector? Other then that nice build! Sensible parts and a quite capable machine!

EDIT the model of PSU you listed only has a 6+2 connector. Is it a different PSU or are you just running it off the one connector?

An RX 570 only needs one 8pin PCIE connector.

It’s running off the single 8 pin. The 6 pin is optional. Also do note that that power supply only has one pcie connector as well, so that’s why. Also thanks for your comment, I appreciate that.

fascninating. I Rarely see this config ever explored or used. im gonna expirament with this for budget builds now. Most people would say that its unsafe to run off the single connector, but im always willing to expirament!

Great value build! Quite a potruding optical drive on the inside, but props for including it!

To be honest I think 130 is a bit too much for a 570 when I saw one staying at 99 dollar mark for quite a while. Same goes for SSD when for around 20 dollars more you can get literally double capacity.

But if you're happy with it, then its all good.
