Description

This time I wanted to build a nice Ryzen beast. I chose to go with the Ryzen 1700 because it had much better bang for buck compared to the 1700x in my opinion. However right now, the 1700x is only 5 dollars more than the 1700 and if I was to rebuild, I'd go for the 1700x.

I went with the NZXT Elite Case because I I think it's the best looking out there. It's simple, clear, sharp lines, and had everything I needed in the right places, including cut outs for my stat screen, (Tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcNJA6V4tNY&t=2s ) - I also chose the case because it had an HDMI port at the front which was great for my VR headeset.

Since it had a tempered glass window, I couldn't let the graphics card face down. So I did some slight mods in order to get the graphics card to sit vertically. (Tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnNl1lhFbzQ&lc=z222fxkaim2shjr0macdp434q3fcunssdt41ch0s1plw03c010c )

Of course the whole build was planned using PCPartPicker. I'm mentioning this to just lend support to the fact that this site is trust worthy. With every build I've done, I've used PCPP and I'm super happy.

Let me know what you guys think :)

Hey what's that display with temps inside the case? That's awesome!!!! +1 !!

dkoense 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

It's the first link that is in the description is a tutorial of how to do it

armasb 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

im curious too

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

that's the stat monitor :) Link in the description how to do it. Super easy.

armasb 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

great! thanks!!

Bosswoman3 2 points 5 months ago

I've never seen that digital display before. Where did you get that?

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

first link :)

Nwr0110 2 points 5 months ago

I'm a noob at this so how do you measure the temp/stats in your pc. In your video you just plugged the screen in but you didn't show how the stats were measured. What do you do to measure the temp

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

I did. In the video I showed that you launch CAM. CAM is software that monitors the stats. You can use any monitoring solution.

frostmaster468 1 point 5 months ago

I like the color scheme

Velocitron2000 1 point 5 months ago

Awesome looking build, well thought out parts too.

IHaveNoLife 1 point 5 months ago

In my opinion, the perfect build. It has well chosen parts, power, looks and a touch of customization. +1

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

thank you!

N0_N4M3 1 point 5 months ago

Dope build!

valrykie 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

beautiful!

dminer78 1 point 5 months ago

What speed are you running your memory at? I've been wanting to get a similar setup but I wasn't sure how well Ryzen would overclock with 4 dimms of ram.

Love the build! The vertical gpu looks way better then horizontal

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

Currently around 3000mhz

Nwr0110 1 point 5 months ago

What do you think the best temp/ stat monitoring software is. Also what do you do besides just downloading the software. How does it sense what temp it is. Srry I suck at this...

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

I think they're all good. I use CAM because I like the layout and color customization. It detects it based on what's connected to the motherboard.

CaptainQwaz 1 point 5 months ago

beautiful build man

soup07 1 point 5 months ago

Commenting so I can find this easier later; great build!

yojroz 1 point 5 months ago

Great build! I've wanted this case for my upcoming build, but was concerned about the size and lack of spots for fans. But your temps seem good. Any regrets on this case for cooling? I assume the Kraken is bringing air in and the top and rear fans are pushing out? Are they both 140s?

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

yup that's right. Except the rear is 120.

hoanga515 1 point 5 months ago

Hi I came here after seeing your tutorial video on Youtube. Beautiful build! Only question is what did you end up doing to take care of the blue border around the lcd screen? It looks white and clean in the pictures

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

I put an acrylic frame

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

I added a white acrylic frame :)

imulsion 1 point 5 months ago

Are both NZXT case fans outtake ?

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

exhausting yes

imulsion 1 point 5 months ago

I will soon build a pc quite similar, and I am wondering if it would be better or not to set the top fan as intake.

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

So far I'm getting great temps. If you're using liquid cooling then I doubt you would need intake.

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

Yup

Cubanmessiah 1 point 5 months ago

Did you do any over clocking ? Also how well would this case do if I were to do hard tube water cooling? Great build thanks for your time.

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

You could easily do it. There are loads of example pics of how people did it online.

you8myrice 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

dam, seen this video the other day on youtube! great build

Gurpiyar@190 1 point 5 months ago

Thanks!

JukeFactory 1 point 5 months ago

do i need a MICRO ATX to make the vertical GPU fit?

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Nope. Any board will work.

Frostbite11 1 point 4 months ago

Awesome build, ive watched the video but there's nothing about the little white cover around the mini screen so how did you get that

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I bought the frame off of amazon.

ndivenyi 1 point 4 months ago

Wallpaper link? Great build btw.

NathanCarley 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

How on earth did you mount your gpu like that

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I posted link to it

rashadd26 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

want to know what is that mounted under the gpu? (im a noob also)

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

That’s the RGB controller

rashadd26 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

yeah I figured that out but thnx for reply. Also my build was inspired by yours as I too wanted to do a vertical mount for my gpu but could not find the part so I just did it regular and still happy with result.

BodiXDDD 1 point 3 months ago

Ram at native speed?

DOGALD 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

i love your build and you channel! +1

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Thank you !

ledzepan 1 point 2 months ago

First let me say I love your build. Next, well I'm a little late to the party but I hope you'll see this cause I'm building a rig with the same mobo and I was wondering how you were able to coordinate all the RGB stuff? I was afraid it's be impossible without more RGB headers on the mobo. Sorry if these are dumb questions, I'm a noob.

Amnesiak submitter 2 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

I used a USB hub :) - as for adjusting lighting. It was all software based.

ledzepan 1 point 1 month ago

Thanks for the reply!

timfy 1 point 2 months ago

LoneCrusader 2 points 1 month ago

You can get one HERE.

timfy 1 point 1 month ago

oh yeah bills shop! tnx man! ty peace

TheAdversary 1 point 19 days ago

Did you buy the case for the stat screen or did you make it yourself? And how did you mount the screen to the PC case?

Scout1138 1 Build 1 point 13 days ago

Fantastic build, thank you for the tutorials!
