Description

Coming from a PS4.

Wanted a clean black/white build for my first pc as I didn't want to get too adventurous being a newbie. Built this PC because I would like to play Cyberpunk 2077 but I don't FPS on console. So I would like to catch up on FPS titles I missed in the meantime (BF V, Doom, Borderlands, Halo MCC etc.)

Haven't had the chance to push it to its limit on games, but it has performed well in stress tests so far. Test was conducted on max settings (2560x1440, 144hz) for 8 hours overnight. PC remained cool and quiet. That's all that matters.

Part Reviews

CPU

Does what it does as advertised. No complaints

CPU Cooler

Have been using the stock fans as front intake and no issues with temps so far. Design is beautiful and simple to install

Motherboard

No BIOS issues unlike some reviewers have had. Worked right out of the box, as an X570 mobo should for my CPU (Ryzen 3600). Chipset fan is silent and barely noticeable. RGB placements are sparse, which I like. Range of the onboard WiFi isn't the best when I was testing it out, but I run an ethernet cable anyway. Aside from that, works as advertised.

Memory

Does what it's supposed to.

Storage

Boot times are crazy fast. You might very well get similar timings with lesser known brands for cheaper, but I wanted it from someplace more reputable

Video Card

Went with white to fit my theme. Runs all my games fine so far. Haven't had the chance to push it to its limit

Case

Would have gone for a H500 or H510 but this was on sale at a local retailer. Very roomy, lots of space to build around inside. Went with a larger AIO and one more fan because of this.

Power Supply

It provides power. It's from a reputable brand.

No issues

Case Fan

Does its job without making too much noise. LEDs are vibrant and smooth. Brightness can be controlled via the CAM software

Looks good. Nice and clean, well done. Only thing that sticks out at me as unsightly is the AIO tubes, though there's not a lot you can do about them.

The corsair h150i is more on the expensive end. i is intelligent which links with their cases and software. Some of the 360 aio have worse performance than 240 aio. Not really sure why. Jayztwocentz kind of gets into that. Even a 240 is overkill for the 3600. By all means get a good brand. Even corsair has cheaper ones.

Prob to many fans as it comes with some fans in the cases and what to balance incoming and outgoing air.

Memory is ok. 3600 is perfect. Timing suck a little. If you want to overvolt a little to make better timing prob be fine.

Thanks for the tips! I'll take them into account when I'm upgrading.

I must've missed his video. I'll search for it when I can

I agree there might be too many fans in hindsight. I'll look to downgrade to a smaller case in the future as I don't like having too much unused space

Very nice overall build. Only question is why you spent so much on a power supply to power a 3600 and a 2060 super? You could easily have spent £60 on a solid power supply and put the rest of the money forward to get a 3600x

There was a sale on the 650 W from my local retailer which put it about USD$3 more expensive than the 550W so I went with that instead. In fact most of the parts in this list were 20% - 40% off due to it being 10.10 recently, hence some parts might seem overkill.

But still, I appreciate that feedback. After weeks of tweaking and changing parts here and there, some reasoning behind the parts chosen got lost on me

Did you need to buy a controller for the rgb fans? Build looks awesome by the way!
