Description

I use this PC for 1440p 144hz gaming. It came out really nicely and the rgb can't realy be fully appreciated by photos. I have all components running at stock except for XMP on my RAM and Percision Boost Overdrive on my CPU. I might do some overclocking in the future, but for now I am happy with the performance. My theme is white and many of my parts are Corsair so that I can link them with ICUE.

Individual thoughts

CPU - I probably could have saved some money and went with the 3600 as I don't fully take advantage of 8 cores and 16 threads. I decided on the 3700x for future proofing purposes.

CPU Cooler - Definitely not necessary as I am doing no overclocking. I chose this AIO for looks only. I had major issues with radiator installation and the instruction were not helpful at all. I definitely recommend air cooling if you don't care about how it looks. The RGB on it looks great however.

Motherboard - Again I could have probably saved some money but the aesthetic and upgrade potential won me over. Additionally, the troubleshooting led's were very helpful when I screwed up my RAM.

Memory - I definitely could have saved some money in this area. The RAM works great however and looks amazing.

Storage- Coming from a 5200rpm, this makes a world of difference, definitely reccomend it. It was also super easy to install.

GPU - This thing is a beast! The GPU can easily push 1440p 144hz on ultra setting in the games I play. It also looks cool and is dead silent.

Case - The case is nice and I'm happy with my decision. My only complaints are that the ll120's included are black and that the glass has a black edge. The price is reasonable however for including 3 ll120's

PSU - Not too much to say, happy with it.

Case Fan - The ll120's look amazing, but are extremely overpriced.

Custom cables - I definitely reccomend picking up these, they are a great price and feel really high quality. They were easy to plug in and route in my case.

Dummy RAM - The dummy RAM looks great and really completes the look. They are a bit overpriced however but the rgb is identical. One of my sticks has the bottom light stuck on white when turned on.

Edit - Taking the dummy stick out and putting it back in fixed the issue :)

Part Reviews

CPU

Great product, couldn't be happier be on team AMD for years to come!

CPU Cooler

I had a pretty disappointing experience with this cooler. The screws included seemed to be much to long for attaching the fans. To tighten it completely, I would have had to screw through the fins. After hours of trial I managed to get it hanging on with three screws. Although it is very likely this was my fault as this was my first build, the instructions included were next to useless. It does look great though and Icue is a great software. I feel like for a product this expensive corsair should at least have better instructions.

At the end of the day I felt regret that I didn't just go with air cooling.

Don't let this reveiw stop you from purchasing this AIO however, it was probably user error.

Motherboard

Great looking and performing motherboard! Only complaint is that the XMP is not labeled as such in the BIOS. Luckily the diagnostic led's on the motherboard solved a problem when I messed up my RAM. It might be slightly overpriced but I would easily recommend this.

Memory

My only complaint with this RAM is the price. For $140 it should at least be CL16. That being said, it looks phenomenal and ICUE has some really cool lighting modes with it.

Storage

Great priced, great preforming SSD. Games and Windows boot up really fast.

Video Card

This is a really good looking card. The back plate looks really clean and the temps are pretty good. This thing is also essentially silent. It also pretty well priced compared to some other cards in its range. My only minor complaint is that the rgb isn't super bright and the software is mediocre.

Case

This is actually a really well priced case. The inclusion of 3 ll120's is what convinced me to get purchase it. It looks great, the dust filters are nice and the rgb hub is really helpful. My only complaint is that the ll120's included are black instead of white and the glass panel has thick black bezel.

Power Supply

Nice cables, very quiet, and all around great PSU.

Case Fan

Great looking fan, pretty much silent. It is overpriced though.

Custom

These are great! Super cheap and completely elevate the whole PC. Really nice material and keeps their shape. With this on the market I see no reason to buy cablemod. Out of everything, this is the product I recommend the most. Keep it up Asiahorse!

Custom

Works nicely, looks identical to real sticks, and really brings the build to a new level. A bit expensive however.

Personally, I love builds with an all-white color scheme. It just makes it look so clean! I also love the cable management. Great build overall!

Hello mate, really nice build. I'm attempting a similar build but can't work out how to mount the top fans with the screws provided. How did you install the top fans?

Hello, Sorry for the long wait, I hope it hasn't been a problem. If it's still a problem, I screwed the screws in from the outside of the case (so that the head of the screw is on the outside). I think the screws I used were provided with the case but I could be wrong about that. If it's still a problem let me know and I could try to send some pics. Good luck
