Description

Ryzen 7 3700x- This CPU is awesome and is performing great in Battlefield V and Apex, the only downside right now is the cpu temp at idle as it fluctuates like crazy when you do pretty much anything e.g jumping from 40c to 60c when opening chrome. Under load temps have been fine though staying around 60c.

Celsius S24 with LL120 fans- I kinda already mentioned temps before but this things great and is whisper quiet sitting right next to me on my desk. I also bought some white LL fans for the aesthetic and they look awesome and are also pretty quiet, I did have to lower the fan rpm in bios manually though because by default the fan curve was super aggressive and noisy.

MSI B450M MORTAR TITANIUM- I've had no problem with this board and my 3700x, I know there has been a lot of problems with other MSI B450 boards not booting and just being weird in general but with this board my 3700x is boosting to around 4.225ghz in most games with PBO on auto, the one exception being Battlefield V where it hovers around 4.1ghz. My voltage is dropping as it should be at idle and enabling cool and quiet in bios seemed to help the voltage drop even lower. I managed to get my ram running at full speed with XMP at 1.35v and it seems to be working fine as I tested it in memtest a for two hours with 0 errors.

Crucial Ballistix Elite 16gb 3600- This was pretty much the one and only problem when building my PC. The ram works great as I mentioned and it's super fast. The problem though is the height, I should of checked before getting the ram but the max ram height in this case with the aio radiator mouted at the top is 40mm. I got kinda lucky though as according to google its 40.75mm in height. Still though the RAM is tight and touching the fan on my radiator. I asked around on Reddit and was told it should be ok, would prefer if it wasn't touching but I think it should be fine the way it is.

MSI RTX 2070 Armor- I bought this card way back when the RTX 2070 cards first came out as it was the cheapest of them all. Looking at the cards out now the price I paid for this was pretty bad at £475 when I got it. The one issue I have with the actual performance of it is that it does have some pretty bad coil whine, it's especially bad at above 100fps but with headphones on and the noise of my other fans It drowns out the whine slightly. I haven't really seen any complaints of coil whine with this card so I guess I just got really unlucky. It's still a great performing card in every other aspect though and works well with my CPU.

Meshify C Mini- Honestly I don't know why I went with micro atx, I feel like it's slowly becoming abandoned as a form factor but I'm gonna stick with it because why not. This case is awesome though and building in it was super easy.

how are you cpu/mb temps with these mb/cpu combo?

Motherboard always stays cool at 50c in games while the CPU is usually hovering in the low 60s.

Had them for a while now and they are very good, provide good airflow and are super quiet.

Did you have to flash the bios?

Curious - did you connect the LL fans to the S24 or directly to your motherboard? I'm thinking of getting a S24 and already have Corsair ML120 fans that I'd want to use.
