Description

This build is a big compilation of cash money that I put together, after a total of 7 months of compiling money, and PC parts, I Have Finally completed,

The Clockwork Angel.

This is my first PC build, and i'm glad to be sharing it with you guys on PcPartPicker! This build is the culmination of literally 7+ months of saving money, (trust me, its hard scraping together 1.8k when you are a 14 year old that works at a family restaurant.) . The PC features a 3D printed frame and shell, and laser cut side panels, all of which I designed myself. I hope you enjoy :)

THE BUILD PROCESS

Back in January Of 2019, I had already began dreaming of a PC Build, as my laptop was showing its age. I decided it would be best to wait until the release of Zen 2, And thus, the wait for Zen 2 began.

I bought the first component of my PC build in May of 2019, which was my case, and thats how the ball started rolling.

By Christmas of 2019, with 7 months of waiting under my belt, I decided I had to get started somehow.

I had recieved a Ryzen 7 3800X, and a 5700 XT from my parents, as a generous gift for christmas, and the rest of the parts i bought myself

Finally, after components were in my possession, the rig was tested on the motherboard box. All that remained was to assemble the computer. This proved to be both very challenging, and very rewarding. The hardest part about this build was squeezing all those cable extensions behind the panel of the H200, but in the end it was all worth it.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Overall, I am beyond satisfied with how my build turned out. It was such a fun process that allowed me to learn new skills and develop existing ones. The PC is something I am truly proud of, and I honestly can't stop staring at it ;) Though there are a few bugs I would like to get sorted out, whether soon, or in an upcoming revision. Firstly, the graphics card tends to run hotter than I would like, since it is getting choked off by a massive atx power supply and a birds nest of cables. I have managed to keep the temperatures to around 82°C under load, with VRMs below 85°C, but this is a bit hotter than I am comfortable with, and the fans make the computer sound like it's going to take off. Also, the cable management is not quite what I would like it to be. It is a complete birds nest in some places, with cables basically everywhere behind the panel. The collection of cables underneath the shroud leaves little/no room for airflow for the GPU and is contributing to the high temperatures, already being caused by massive ATX power supply in the way. Also, since my motherboard had only one usb 2.0 header, i had to put the wires for the kraken x52 into the usb 2.0 block for the hue 2, works just fine, no problems so far.

Is that a banana shark sticker on your front panel? :) Very nice build by the way and massive props to your parents for the CPU and GPU.

Congratulations on your first build! It looks great!

The blue and purple cables are a nice touch. Perhaps you can look for tips on better cooling in the hardware forum on this site.

Thumbs up from me. Enjoy!

Why are you switching to an X570 mobo? I am currently thinking to get the b450-I Strix over the X570I Aorus one. Do you think i should got the aorus one over the asus one?

Why are you switching? I heard that the X570 Aorus has only 1 case fan header and that b450 and X570 are pretty much the same.

Hey I have a question. Did you connect ur LEDs to the nzxt hub or did you connect it to the motherboard? If you **** connect the LEDs to the motherboard did they work right away?

i connected the LEDs to the NZXT hub, and i just did a thing where you take 2 USB 2.0 wires and put them into one block, and it works just fine

How are your fan headers on the Mobo working out? I'm looking to upgrade my system and I can't seem to find a spec for where the Mobo has an AIO pump connector. How are you connecting the AIO pump and all the case fans to this Mobo?

since it is an NZXT kraken it all works through NZXT cam, and it is controlled through USB 2.0
