Description

First time building a PC so took me couple months to figure out the best parts that would work for me. Going to be using this as a streaming/ content creation/gaming rig. Think I did a pretty good job with cable management for my first time. Especially considering the 570x case is not friendly to first time users.

Ryzen 7 1700x is overclocked to 3.9, stays extremely cool even under load I think it peaks somewhere in the mid 60's and at idle remains upper 30's. Cooled by the EVGA CLC 240 but i replaced the fans that come with the AIO with a pair of Corsair SP120's.

Motherboard is great, full of features and easily overclocked my memory to run at 3200.

Went with the top of the line graphics card EVGA 1080TI FTW 3. As expected it is AMAZING. I have only played Rainbow Six Siege so far but at 1440p and ultra settings this thing pushes 110+ fps all day without OC.

Corsair 570x is extremely beautiful and pretty easy to build in. Like others have said would have loved a gromet on top of the PSU for I/O cables and a cover for the side of the shroud but I made it work with a little bit of Dremeling ;)

Let me know what you think!

Those rams arent supported from the qvl , You say you managed to run them 3200 how ?

Followed a video on overclocking ram, made sure i had the most recent bios update, and got 3200mhz stable after running multiple tests. Just because its not on the qvl dosent mean its not supported. Sometimes it takes a while for those lists to update.

I actually just checked and G.Skill is a supported vendor @3200mhz. Are you sure you clicked the qvl for Ryzen Cpu's?
