Description

Thing is a beast. I spent the good part of 4 months researching what I wanted to do, watching prices on each part etc. I have not seen any issues with AMD drivers with the Rx5700 xt aside from one crash during a MWF session. There was just a new driver release within the past week to 19.12.1 and have not seen anything since. System is used mostly for gaming. I also record and tinker with guitar tracking but I have not set that up on the new system yet. Waiting on a new set of Kali LP-6 monitors and Focusrite interface. I also use the XP-Pen Artist 22e Pro tablet to draw in Sketchbook Pro. Extremely happy with the way it turned out and the performance so far.

Part Reviews

CPU

Monster of a CPU. No complaints about price and performance.

CPU Cooler

Fantastic AIO. Easy to install and looks great. I kept the stock fans that came with it and it does its job well.

Motherboard

Had been eyeing the Elite version from Giga, but this came on sale about the time I pulled the trigger. Picked this up for the same price I was going to pay for the Elite. BIOS is easy to use. It does take a while to post, which I generally see with x-570 boards. No other complaints other than Fusion software is a joke.

Memory

Love it. Exactly what I wanted with my Ryzen build.

Storage

Caught it on sale before BF, and can't be happier. Extremely fast. Using it as an OP drive and storage for .tiff files from Sketchbook.

Storage

Also picked this up on sale. Since then I've seen the prices of Intel 660's have gone back up a tad. Using it as a game library drive.

Video Card

So far I really like it. It absolutely chews through everything I've thrown at it in 1440p. I've only had one issue with Modern Warfare and that's the only performance hickup it's had. Just updated to 19.12.1 and have not had any more of the same. Trixx software is easy to use. I have noticed a white LED flash when the card is slightly under load and above. The case is right next to my monitor so at first I thought it was screen reflection. Reddit has several others who have seen the same flash and Sapphire is aware of it. Hoping there's an update in the near future to remedy it. Turning the LED's off it never happens. Love the card otherwise.

Case

Easily the best case I've ever built in. Tons of room. Cable management is great. Very solid case and it has exceptional air flow with the front and top covers off.

Power Supply

Picked it up on Newegg for the same price as other brands 80+ Gold 750W psu's. It's made by Seasonic. I would have gone with a THOR if they had been available, but I'm very happy with the Revolt. Build quality actually exceeded my expectations.

Thanks! Yours as well. Very happy with it so far.

I had considered the H510 as well as the P400a. I'm glad I went with this. As soon as I pulled it out of the box I knew I'd made the right choice.

Appreciate it! Yeah I had a H510 at first, soon regretted it though because of the temps lol. I'd say you made the right choice, hope you enjoy it!

I feel dumb to ask this but I have the cooler and I was wondering how you changed the rgb lights on it?

You have to plug the RGB plug from the cooler in to an aRGB port on the motherboard. For AIO coolers and air coolers that have RGB, there is a CPU plugin where you plug in for power and most boards have an additional CPU plug where you plug in for the RGB. You can plug that in to any LED spot on the board though, depending on your level of OCD. LOL. Then you can control the lights through the bios, or what most people do is using the software for whatever brand of motherboard you have. I have a Gigabyte Aorus board, so I am using RGBFusion 2.0. Which is Gibabyte's RGB software. If you have an MSI board or Asus board, they have their own software. Anything plugged in to the aRGBor LED ports on the motherboard can be controlled through that software. RAM, Fans, Coolers, etc.
