Build

The Bifrost

by Specialk1311

Description

This was my second build. I gathered the parts over the course of several months, so I got some pretty good deals. I got the EVGA CLC 120 for $30 on Prime Day, and on Black Friday I got the MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon Motherboard for $80 and 16 GB of T-Force RGB Ram for $109. I also bought the GPU on eBay for $260. My friend gave me the keyboard and mouse, and I got the processor, monitor, case, and SSD for my birthday/Christmas.

I use this mainly for gaming and schoolwork, and it runs everything I play at 60+ FPS at high/max settings. I love the LED Sync option with the AIO and GPU, as the colors match each other perfectly. The M.2 SSD is much faster than my HDD, but for some reason, I couldn't clone my HDD to my SSD, so I had to reinstall everything on my SSD. I named this computer after the rainbow bridge in Norse mythology, and I also added some Funko Pops! All in all, it was a really fun experience!

Part Reviews

CPU

Performs really well for the price and stays cool.

CPU Cooler

Keeps the processor cool, and I got a good deal on it.

Motherboard

Looks very nice, good for overclocking, and I got a good price for it.

Memory

Runs at 2933 mhz and RGB looks great.

Storage

Bought this used, so it was a bit loud and slow

Video Card

RGB can sync with cooler and performs really well. I have yet to overclock it.

Case

Good features for a budget case (RGB, PSU shroud, etc.)

Power Supply

A little overkill, but I wanted a good power supply in case I decided to upgrade parts

Did the board work ok with the CPU? Sometimes the x370 bios doesn't work with the 2000 series.

Mine came with a sticker that said Ryzen 2000 ready, and so far it has been great!

Did you already have Ryzen 2600 at hand and put onto this build?

Specialk1311 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Yes, I did.

Cool, do you know how much power draw does your PC take from the wall? Since you have a 750W PSU, I'm wondering if you're using like 40% of the wattage during intense use.

I think my pc uses 400-500w
