Description

Build this pc for a friend. He has been a laptop guy and mostly an apple guy most of his life. I put this together for him as he is getting out of the dark side and steeping into the light. He didn't have a color scheme in his room, and I wanted the pc to be classy but still pop. I saw the Fractal Design Focus G case and thought it was a good start. black and white, side window, comes with some led fans. Didn’t realize it didn’t have a power supply shroud until I started working on it. Wasn’t too hard to work with, but I really had to be on my cable management game when I put it together too make it look nice. Only other issue I had with the case was the thumb screws. Oh, and placing the top fans, I went a bit extra and went with 140swhich was a bit of work to maneuver. The Taichi I had from when I built my Ryzen pc, and kept with the color scheme. Didn’t want to go too crazy on the price and he really isn’t playing many triple A games, but if he wanted to he could. So, a 1060 would do the job, Asus dual in you guessed it, white fit perfectly. The aio was again a little extra but added more flair so the pc and my piece of mind if he ever wanted to max out the overclock on it. I had dialed him up to all cores running at 3.8. The pc looked a little dark, so in went the vengeance ram, its RGB, mostly because they were on sale for just as much as the just whites. Some cable mods to help bring the colors together. And we have a nice White and Black solid pc build where my friend can pretty much play any game and nice frames at 1080p or create content. It’s up to him. I just had fun putting it together.

How does the Corsair Vengeance clock with Ryzen? Did you get it to 2933?

DAMONA15 submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Yes, that's it ended up at. Didn't bother trying to over clock it since my buddy wouldn't be able to troubleshoot any of that himself if something happened.

Did the case look good when you got it. I'm getting the same case and I want to know if its a good case.

DAMONA15 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

It did, it looked better than i thought it would. Like I said the only big con i have on the case is no psu cover, so hard to hide cables. other than that its a nice black and white case.

AWSOME THX.

does the power supply make a lot of noise?

DAMONA15 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Doesn't on idle or when just browsing, but when gaming it is audible. I should have gone with like a 600 watt to help reduce noise and get the most efficiency. But with headset on you won't hear anything

Do you get good temps with the cooler? I plan on getting it with the same CPU.
