Description

Still need to paint the case parts, but I have the whole build assembled and the RGB looks great! Had a max budget of $1500, bought all my parts on Black Friday, cost about $1600 with shipping and tax (and haven't yet mailed in the rebates). Going to use this build primarily for gaming and some art programs (Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.). Runs GREAT, 200+ frames, Ultra quality. Beautiful. Case wire management was amazing, easy to keep everything neat and orderly. CPU cooler is so quiet, it's unnoticeable. The RAM sticks are gorgeous and respond perfectly to the ASUS Aura Sync software. The GPU struggles to keep up with the RGB settings, and the colors aren't matching correctly, but the GPU runs great and I have no complaints. The case LED strips weren't compatible with the MOBO's RGB header, but I figured I'd be using the case's controls anyway because all the reviews I read said they weren't as bright with the Aura Sync software. It's quiet, beautiful, and the monitor is lovely as well, with the wonderful choice of DVI, HDMI, or DisplayPort. I'm in love. A little girl's dream came true today.

Clean build, really enjoy the purple LED. I just recently built a new Intel about two days ago and I'm in love with the ASUS Aura software. Works like a charm. +1.

Have you noticed any high pich sounds coming from your RAM

noahleeann submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

No, no high pitched sounds, and I haven't encountered any problems with the RAM at all. the LEDs are very bright and each LED can be individually manipulated with the ASUS Aura Sync software.

I'm surprised you don't have a custom Shift keycap yet for D.va's boost...

Only thing I need to ask about is the air cooler. Is there reasoning behind that orientation?

noahleeann submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

You mean the CPU cooler? it's how the mobo and CPU are situated. I didn't add any additional fans in the case, so everything in there is stock, aside from the beQuiet! CPU Cooloer

Love the white case and rgb effects! Just wondering, what bios do you have for the Asus B350 motherboard? I have the same board, ram, and the Ryzen 2200G but my system won't post. I get a solid yellow LED beside the ram slot which apparently means something is wrong with the ram. Maybe my ram is dead? But I'm also wondering if it could be the ram being incompatible with my bios version since yours seems to work.
