Description

So my old computer (an hp pavilion h8110) had its graphics card close to dying, and was in general unable to play any game at any usable fps. I was originally going to buy a prebuilt, but I couldn't find anything with the right specs that I wanted leading me to building this. The build went great, with the pc powering on and installing everything properly. The only issue I had was with the x570 chipset fan. On my motherboard the header for it had the pwm pin bent way out of wack, leading to the fan running at max speed all the time. Easy fix with a sewing needle, and now everything functions as planned, and is very quiet. It only really gets loud when everything is at max load.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU for its price, and doesn't get much hotter when overclocked.

CPU Cooler

Amazing cooler, keeps my overclocked Ryzen 5 3600 reasonably cool

Motherboard

Good and cheap x570 motherboard, but msi needs to fix their chipset fan connector.

Memory

Would have liked to get 3200 MHz or 3600 MHz RAM, but this works perfectly fine with my setup.

Storage

Cheap M.2 drive, but with 1 TB storage and respectable data speeds, I couldn't be happier.

Video Card

Much regret not getting an XT, but this card can still take a healthy overclock and stay cool while at it

Case

I love the aesthetic of this case, and its color fits well. Very tight space for cable management, but can be worked with. Wish the fans in the front were blue, but I still love the white.

Power Supply

Good power supply, comes with all the cables you could ever need, and is relatively cheap

Optical Drive

Its a CD ROM drive, it works for its purpose. Comes with bonus start up clicks.

Wireless Network Adapter

Great little card, gets the full 10 MB/s that my router can provide, unlike my old computer.

Case Fan

Good and quiet exhaust fan, keeps up with the two intake fans well

That case looks pretty nice in blue.

Couldn't find a prebuild with the right specs. Builds it yourself. A true baller move.

My build came out to almost the same price and I do wish I spent that extra money on an XT

If you want to risk it, you can flash a 5700 xt bios onto the 5700, and have comparable performance.
