Description

This build spiralled out of control very quickly (you can thank the bearded fellow in the photos for that, he's good at egging me on to get bigger and better parts)

It was supposed to be a straight swap from my old i5 build but then we couldn't find the screws for my h60 which lead to looking for an Am4 compatible cooler which got to thinking about looping it and then if it's being looped why not go all out and get a 1600x instead of a 1600? If we're going all out why not 16gb instead of 8?

You get the idea...

I've Included my Firestrike scores but if anybody wants anything specific benching/testing let me know!

Part Reviews

CPU

This seems to be a Golden chip. Got it running at 4.1ghz with no problems and only a slight increase on the voltage.

Cinebench got the following results:

Regular Score: 1370 Single Core: 168

Memory

Running at 3200mhz no problem with the latest BIOS for the Mobo. Looks pretty too!

Video Card

Great card from Sapphire which will easily tide me over until VEGA comes along

Case

Great looking case (as you can hopefully see) but my lord was it time consuming to build (As you can probably see from my kitchen being turned into a workshop)

Headphones

Great Headphones, light and comfy. Sound quality is superb

Really nice build. How is the motherboard? Was looking at getting it for a r5 1600 + RX480 build. Edit: They recently added the motherboard to the part list, you can choose it like normal now. (:

Thanks! I've edited the build now. Also it's beautiful and runs without a problem. One thing I didn't know is it has white LED's in the underside which shine out to the sides adding even more frost to this cool thing :D

ankordaxx 1 point 5 months ago

The white is really nice! Any trouble w/ the ram?

Firestorm2408 submitter 1 Build 3 points 5 months ago

None whatsoever, powered it on, downloaded the latest bios and set xmp to 3200

jawnzilla 1 point 5 months ago

I read a reply that said there is an annoying red led on the mobo. Have you noticed/been bothered by it at all?

Firestorm2408 submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

See photo 8/13 if you want to see for yourself. Yes I've noticed it and it bugs me slightly but i'll probably replace it/paint over it with white myself.

Beautiful build man!

You make me want to say: what is the cooler? I need it for RYZEN 1600X!

Firestorm2408 submitter 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

Watercooling kit from EK.

clamwhacker 1 point 5 months ago

Great build mate. Quick question: how did you do the BIOS upgrade? Through the provided MSI software? or onboard USB BIOS port? Thanks.

Firestorm2408 submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

Msi software, you can get the BIOS from the msi website :)

clamwhacker 1 point 5 months ago

Thanks dude, looking at building something similar myself :) Keep up the nice work.

Very nice black and white what would you rate the case and gpu you picked

Firestorm2408 submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

GPU is easily a 10/10 for 1080p gaming and easily handles 1440p on high settings (currently playing Farcry 4 at 1440p high settings between 55-80fps)

Case is gorgeous and certainly a different take on the metal box that most others have.

blackhood1232 1 point 5 months ago

The pic of your desk shows you can a have a really good setup in a small space

Firestorm2408 submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

Aye! I was worried it wouldn't fit originally but it all worked out in the end.

blackhood1232 1 point 5 months ago

Not a white and black pc fan but this is one of my favorite pc build

Great build, but is the audio quality on this budget motherboard good enough or should i get a x370 mb?

Firestorm2408 submitter 1 Build 0 points 4 months ago

I'm using a fairly decent pair of headphones (Audio technica m40x's) and the quality is fine :)

Something001 0 points 4 months ago

Thanks for the reply :D

Saavy1 1 point 4 months ago

I've got this case and just ordered this Motherboard and I'm really excited to get it put together, yours looks awesome!

Firestorm2408 submitter 1 Build 2 points 4 months ago

Glad to hear I've helped you make the push for this lovely colour scheme!

brecci 1 point 4 months ago

Like it but y wouldn't you go with a white gpu or at least paint it?

tobothehobo 1 point 4 months ago

nice build, but i would go with a mechanical keyboard, the deathstalker is gross

Neltax 1 point 3 months ago

Does anyone realize that his PC names the processor "ADM Ryzen 1600x"

jos_pc 1 point 3 months ago

What table are you using?

Loserinacup 1 point 2 months ago

That gpu temp tho. You should invest in a block for that

Great monitor that should only go down in price, I'd say get it if there's a good deal off it.
