Description

This was a budget build for my first desktop pc for 10 years. I will be using it mainly for doing work productivity some light gaming and occasional video editing. The build was very easy compared to the last time I built a pc so many years ago. I had no compatibility issues and I had no problems oveclocking my cpu to 3.6ghz stable with the stock wraith cooler. The only thing I altered was the case I found the airflow at the front poor so I modded it very easily by just cutting in new vents with a dremmel. I also added black cable extensions which I managed to get for an unbelivable £11 on amazon because of damaged packaging and the cables were perfectly fine.

For cables, Monoprice has great prices as well.

Nice work with this build. How are you temps once you modded the front section for improving the airflow? How much of a difference did you see?

I like it and this will serve you well. +1

Thanks the temps were pretty good I got a drop of 3°c on the CPU and about the same on the GPU under full load. And using normally the CPU sits pretty constant at 36°c and the GPU fans hardly turn on unless I'm gaming. I was really surprised at how good the stock wraith cooler performed with the over clocking and the extra airflow to keep it stable at 3.6ghz. I did try 3.7ghz but the PC crashed during cinebench so I dialled back. I do think with an aftermarket cooler I could get 3.9ghz stable especially with the airflow mod I made. :)

Nice, sounds like it's doing well! And that would be sweet if you can get it to 3.9GHz in the future. Otherwise, yes AMD's Ryzen stockfans are better than what their previous (older versions) stockfans were. Thanks for your responses and enjoy your build! :)

Much better than the intel stock coolers

i was curious why didn't you wanted to spend a little extra to buy a HDD 1tb for like 40$

That was a mistake on my part I forgot to update the parts list before I uploaded the build. It only contains the KingSpec 64gb ssd from amazon and an old segate 2tb HDD 7200rpm that I had lying around.
