Ryzen 2700X Build

by Gizmoducky

Description

This is my gaming rig. I bought the GPU over a year ago when it was brand new and used it in my old system. Since then I have upgraded twice and now I'm on the Ryzen 2700X CPU. I downgraded from 32gb of 2400mhz memory and opted for 16gb of 3600mhz memory (wasn't listed). Most of these parts have been in different builds. I'm posting this new build because for the first time in nearly 10 years I got a new case. That's right I had a Cooler Master HAF for 10 years. I recently painted some of the trim orange to match parts of the motherboard and give it a little color.

Clean looking build, nice work!

The HAF is one hell of a case, haha. Way to ride it out for so many years.

Oh man, it was bitter sweet saying good bye to the HAF.

Great build! You got a lot of performance there in a moderately-sized case. Good upgrade from the HAF case, my son's build is currently in my old HAF-922 that I bought new about 8 years ago.

Thanks! I doubt I'll get 10 years out of this P400, but it was nice to work with some a little newer even if it was crammed compared to the HAF.

I like the custom repainting. My only recommendation is to get an extension to go in the usb 3.0 header at the bottom so you can hide the usb 3.0 better

Gizmoducky submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 days ago

Yea I agree. I'd like to hide it better.

But I really like the build!

How are your temps with the stock wraith prism cooler in that case? I'm about to put together a pretty similar build and was wondering if I really need to upgrade the cooler.

Gizmoducky submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 days ago

Out of the box it's great. This case doesn't really have high air flow and with the stock cooler I'm not seeing temps get above 68°C. That's after running Firestrike a couple times back to back.

Nice Build man! What are your gpu temps and fan setup ?

Gizmoducky submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 days ago

My GPU was topping out at 72°C after running Firestrike a couple times back to back. I haven't done any stress testing or overclocking to the GPU. I've got 2 Cougar Vortex 120MM fans in the front pulling air in and one in the back for exhaust. I'm surprised that everything runs so cool. Well, cool for air cooling that is.

I forgot to point out that I had the fans running on high during the Firestrike test. I normally have everything running on low. The fans are much louder than I expected.
