Description

So on the last day of 2019, I built my first PC which was one of my goals for 2019. I had just 4 hours to spare :-).

Very happy with it, it went quite smoothly thanks to You Tube and PC Part Picker. Took me less than 2 hours to build (but 4 hours of trying to figure out why my video card wasn't working). Really like the not so expensive extension sleeves I bought on Amazon (EZ-DIY FAB)

It is primarily for gaming. The experts will notice the RGB to make it quicker.

Peripherals: - Glorious Model O mouse - Sharkoon Skiller Mech3 Brown Switches Keyboard - Asus VG27AQ Monitor (IPS, 165mhz, 1ms, 1440p)

Looks really good man , I’m in the research part of my build and I was wondering where you got the grey and white cables ? This is the clean look I’m going for . Strong work

How's the cooler working out for you? Would you say it's capable of OC'ing a Ryzen 7 2700X? I've heard good things about it online, so I wanted to ask you since you have a relatively thermally demanding CPU.

I just build it yesterday, so haven't put it really to work yet. But I bought the Scythe because all reports and tests confirm that it is an excellent cooler for heavy load and overclocking (and trust me, the build only took 2 hours but I must have watched 80 hours of benchmarking videos to prepare it; especially on coolers). It is really just a a couple of c° less than the big beefy Noctua but it is half the price, absolutely silent and more ram friendly! I would definitely recommend it.

Thanks, happy with it myself. The Cooler Master is of course a very forgiving case...

what was the cause of your graphics card not working

Still not entirely sure. It was driver/software related. I got the latest Geforce drirvers (didn't work), I got all the Windows updates (didn't work), I got the latest MSI Dragon Center (didn't work). Only after I installed the card in another PCIE slot first it started to work and then I could put it back in the top PCIE slot. Not sure if this was the actual issue, but now it works so I'm happy :-).

Move the rear exhaust fan down a bit.

I thought that since hot air rises to the top I had to mount it as high as possible. But it's better to align it with the CPU fan?
