Description

Saved another one from going pre-built.

He said he had $1100 to spend so we went to work. He mainly uses it for games and some VR . It's one of the main things in his living room so we had to make it somewhat pretty.

Had a spare CPU cooler from my 3800x so I gave it to him for an upgrade. I think it came out better than he expected and he was ecstatic and very pleased when he saw the final product. The 3600 was OC'd to 4.2ghz @ 1.325v and runs like a champ.

Should last him a few years before needing any upgrades. I focused more on the GPU because he was a "gamer" per se.

Rosewill PSU? Any concerns with that?

I've used a few Rosewill the last few years and haven't had any issues yet. Knockonwood lol

Fascinating... it's like a no no on here for cheap PSU's so I've always bought name brand.

I have a Rosewill 600w that I used from 2008 up until 2018, so they aren't all that bad.

I've used a few PSUs from Rosewill and they are alright, you probably won't have any catastrophic issues -- computer parts these days sip power. But the arc is in their 'budget' line. (what does that mean?)

I'd be a little iffy pairing it with a 2070 especially if you're leaving it on all the time. Look up the long term effects of PSU ripple.

Otherwise you did pretty stellar for the price. Just may be worth spending more on the PSU.

Hi! There are two things in this build I am so concerned of. First is the "Rosewill 650 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX", with all those components you have and a good graphics card, I would say you should invest more on the PSU, so get a reliable and decent one (Corsair / Seasonic / Silverstone / CM / etc.) - mosly on the Tier A+. Don't risk your components with that power supply unit. Second is the Sabrent Rocket Q 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME SSD, if you need high storage, it's okay, but if you can manage <= 500GB, get a Samsung / WD / ADATA one. That will compensate performance and reliability as SSD ages.

Can you specify why those 2 are bad as I've never had any issues with both products for a couple years now in a few builds I've done. Does Sabrent use different controller or a different nand technology? Or the PSU using cheap components? Can you explain more in details? Also, thanks for the tip

The Sabrent is only second to the Samsung and it's 90% as fast at half the cost. It's a great choice, no problem there at all.

Nice gaming build for the $. Good work! I don't believe ram can exceed 3200 MHz on the MB. Hence, I would have spent less on slower RAM and more on the PSU. I also would have begged him to spend $90 more on the TUF 570 MB instead. Regardless, thumbs up from me. Enjoy!

Thanks, ya the Mobo only support up to 3466mhz for the ram which is close enough. Haha

Over 200+ for sure on all 3 games. Except maybe fortnite dipping into high 100s

Yo this is a great looking and great value build. Did you pick 2070 over RX 5700 XT for raytracing? What monitor are you running? Also, how's the case? I'm considering a Deepcool MATREXX 50 series Mid Tower for my own build.

Also you should add an image with the lights in the room off/dark. Would look sick.

No reason in particular for the 2070 just prefer Nvidia over amd when it comes to gfx cards.

How do you like the Asus Evo OC? I've been thinkin about getting it, but there are no reviews, and I don't know how good it is. Thanks in advance!

It's one of those products that pics doesn't do justice. It looks amazing in person and temps are way better than reference design from nvidia
