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
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
