Description

Finally!! After slowly saving money for a decent high end gaming computer i have finally got everything together. After a few months of thinking, ive decided to break away from Intel and went with a Amd Ryzen cpu. Literally just finished the last touches last night at approximately 2:30am, 4-03-2019. Everything worked as expected, as it should. Everything brand new except for the ssd and hdd, ported those over from a previous build.

I will try and update things as i go along!!

I am really bad at cable managing, but i think i did really well for my first time build!

Part Reviews

CPU

Tears through cinebench. Handles anything i throw at it. More updates coming soon.

CPU Cooler

This cooler is massive! I was a little worried about clearance issues in my case but it fits like a glove. Super slient, and the fan spins monstrously when cpu heats up. Silent wings fans move a ton of air.

Thermal Compound

I did the "grain of rice" method from bitwit and jayztwocents, stable temps, easy to apply. No need for the spreaders attached with it.

Motherboard

Plenty of fan headers, perfect for the amount of fans i have in my case, maximum of 64gb ram space, easy to understand bios and support. You may have to update the bios. Features a "EZ mode" in bios for overclocking. Perfect for those unfamiliar with it like i was.

Memory

Sleek black ram sticks. G.skill has never let me down. Overclocking to 3200mhz causes my system to reboot 5 times then stall on the windows screen. 3000mhz seems to be stable enough. But results may vary for other people with other motherboards.

Video Card

Black and red, bold red led that reads Devil. And a inverted pentagram on the back? This caught my eye immediately and i knew i had to get my hands on it. I havent done much testing on it, but it seems to handle gta 5 on ultra at 1440p very well.

Case

This case is pretty cool, ample room for airflow, but not much for cables. I'm pretty bad at management. Inwin did include a gpu bracket to prevent sag on some of the beefier gpus. Good thought on their part!

Power Supply

Eco friendly switch on the rear, 650watt and semi modular? Pretty decent psu if you dont want to use some cords. Love how the mobo plug in was already attached to it.

Case Fan

RED! My pc build was centered around the color scheme of black and red. And finding out Thermaltake did these in red, i knew i had to buy some. Rpm is somewhat high and they do a good job at illuminating the case and keeping everything cool.

2600X comes with a Wraith cooler, did you just decide to use a different one?

I did. I decided that from the start.

Does that case not have any exhaust near the CPU?

It does, i didnt put a fan there so it somewhat has positive air flow.

While you do have positive airflow, a decent portion of the cool air that comes in is either A) getting blocked/absorbed by the GPU or B) the remaining air that makes it through on the right side of the GPU is getting immediately vented out by the exhaust fans. If you're having no thermal problems, then it's whatever, but I think there could be something to gain from venting the hot air from your CPU since that gets the hottest the fastest. Hot air rises, so the top would be ideal if you can't put anything on the rear.

There is no top spots for a fan or a rad. The only thing there is the psu and an attic for cords.
