Description

On black friday i decided i wanted to upgrade my ram to 64 GB (4x16) 3200. When i placed it in my current system i realized i couldnt get stable at the speeds that i bought. So i finally said whatever time to do a full upgrade

Previous Specs

1700x, Asrock ab350 pro 4, RX480.

Im a bit of a amd fanboy and i also REALLY liked the asrock board I had before so it was a no brainier when i saw the asrock x570 taichi board. Aesthetically it was beautiful and after hours of reviews i pulled the trigger.

I wanted the 3950x but cost differences and availability limited me. I knew i wanted an AMD card within a reasonable price and after seeing the lighting scheme of the red devil i fell in love. I was a little worried about heat since its a hot card and the case i choose is notoriously bad as far as airflow goes but i figured id be fine since im cooling the cpu with the AIO. After hours of playing star citizen i haven't even broke 62c in card temps so its been more than fine.

I also do some video editing for instagram hence the huge amount of storage and ram.

Overall this was a fun and VERY good looking build and im really happy with the results

Edit: After some initial feed back I flipped the fan and radiator and added some more pics of the build.

Also i know the second PCIE slot is slower than the first but aesthetically i wanted to show off more of the board and the steampunk accents

The only real concern i had with the GPU position was airflow since it was so close to the bottom of the case. But thats why i set the internal case LEDs to change color based off the temp of the GPU. Ive played star citizen for hours and havent gotten temps above 72c. (Custom Fan Curve)

I highly recommend this case as its relatively insulated sound wise which makes the fans pretty quiet

I really like the case! What made you choose the pull over push airflow for radiator exhaust? To me I would feel like it would get the heat out better by pushing it out through the radiator and not letting the radiator make the air stagnant inside. I dont think it is wrong by any means! Just curious.

I just mounted it the way the picture on the box was.... Should I switch it though?

It’s your call. It’s not wrong it’s just preference. The push on radiators does help it a little more though. Try it. Get some temps with it like that, switch it and take temps again. See if it makes a difference. You can get a static led fan replacement for the radiator too if you don’t like looking at the fan. I want that window view though!

Only one thing, which is that the GPU is installed in the wrong spot... I'm pretty sure

Yup, not necessarily "wrong", just probably not the most optimal, especially if you want to add something like a capture card later on. I'd recommend putting it in the Top PCIE express slot, as you'll probably get the best performance out of that one anyway. Great Build!

i honestly did it because i wanted to show off the gear on the board. i havent hit any gaming limitations yet so i figured id run with it until things catch up with this system

Very nice build and components. Congratulations! I'm guessing performance has more than doubled. Please add some close-up pics if you can. Thumbs up from me. Enjoy!
