Surprising easy. Wish I had built a pc years ago. Great rig for 1440p
Everything booted up flawlessly and went together fine. Build for just the tower and components inside was right at $1600
Looks very clean, nice build
Super solid build, man! Wouldn't change a thing +1
You did great with parts selection! Super clean!+1
Thank you. I’m loving the white case with the rgb
Sup bro nice build do you have a video, do you stream or something I would like to see the performance. Did you come across any problems?
Thank you. I actually ran into one small problem with the ram not getting full 3200. Quick YouTube vid and fixed in bios. I do not stream, just a casual gamer when I have the time. And performance wise it does really well, I’m getting atleast 100fps on AAA games at 1440p (sorry for the late response) thinking about getting an after market cooler though. The one that came with the 3700x is ok but would like to get the temps down a bit. Getting into the 70c range if I game for an hour or two.
Sir, I applaud you. A modest, reasonable first build. Solid man. Only recommendation is pick up an NVMe drive at some point. You have x570, gen4 is coming down in price too, but it doesn't even necessarily need it unless you just want to utilize new tech. Other than that, excellent choices. If you want to stay air-cooled, check out Noctua air coolers. They nearly compete with AIOs anymore. If you want to check out AIOs (all in one water coolers) my recommendation just from experience, corsair, fractal and nzxt. Fractal being my favorite for the blackout look.
Thank you for the advice, wish I built a pc years ago. I’m sure I could just google it but what exactly is a NVMe drive? And I have been looking at getting a better cpu cooler. Honestly just not sure who to go with. Most likely will go with a AIO cooler.
NVMe drive is directly connected to your motherboard and runs off your m.2 slot utilizing pcie. Your standard SSD through sata runs anywhere from 450-550 MBps read/write. You see as high as 3500 on standard NVMe drives, and 5000 MBps on gen4. In other words, insanely fast storage, near 10x the speed of your standard HDD, and now SSDs with gen4. Now there's also two different types of NVMe drives, as there is also NVMe sata. Uses a different key layout and isn't as fast (key meaning the connection point on the drive, where it connects to your motherboard.)
Hey, how's the CPU and GPU temp?
hottest i have seen the GPU was 75c, usually runs around high 60s gaming. As for the CPU i really haven't kept up on checking the temps on it.
Update... Iv been playing modern warfare for over 2hrs now and my cpu temp is 56C
Great temp for CPU, a lil' bit concerned bout the GPU. 75C are you sure?
Im not 100% sure about that reading.
I have read up a bit on my card and it supposedly does run a little hot. I read some where the nividea cards run between 70-80c with a load. I’ll probably be looking for a water cooled fan. Not liking the temps regardless of what I’m reading.
Wait, your GPU is 2 fans, its normal I think.
I happened to grab the same RAM/Mobo/CPU as you on Black Friday and was wondering if its all working nice and stable? The RAM isn't on the motherboard QVL, but G.Skill lists them as compatible. Is it running at 3200 Mhz as advertised?
