Build

Blue Beetle

by stephenbouck

Description

First off this was my first ever Pc build, it was built to play some of my favorite games on ultra wide but also to stream movies on. I have to say i'm thrilled with how it came out and now i'm addicted this will be a first Pc of many lol

The Ryzen 1700 is currently OC to 3.9 stable and cool with a fractal designs AIO. Ram speed is running at 3200 solid. i have a 1TB ssd for everything with plans to buy a M.2 in the near future. The strix 1080Ti is amazing it handles everything i can throw at it and more! All of this cramed into a Hyperbeast S340 elite

The only issue i had was i first had an asus board but couldnt get it to update the bios i contacted asus they recommended i RMA the board so i did but i'm very impatient so i went with Gigabyte gaming K5 instead and have no issues at all! Asus got back to me and they refunded my money and gave me a code for some money off my next asus purchase which i appreciate like i said no hard feelings towards Asus they did nothing wrong and provided great customer service so i will definitely be buying from them in the future/ .

Overall i had a blast building This beast and I'm already planing out the next one lol any and all comment welcomed

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing fast stable what more could you ask for oh yeah and super affordable!!!

CPU Cooler

Runs super quite keeps everything frosty and super easy to install also the intergrated fan hub is awesome!

Motherboard

Originally i went with the X370 game strix from Asus but it was DOA so i RMAed it and went with this board and couldn't be happier soooo much better to work with and the lighting is a nice touch also.

Memory

Runs at advertised speeds what more can you ask for.

Storage

Not the fastest SSD out there but does the job and is quicker than anything i have owned.

Video Card

AMAZING CARD!!!! this thing looks amazing performs amazing and best of all it doesnt sag on my board.

Case

It's a S340 with a sick painting scheme its unique and limited edition probably could have saved the money and went with a regular edition but what fun would that be i had the cash so i pulled the trigger on this beauty. Also it was extremely easy to build in and rout cables.

Power Supply

Got a great deal on it and its 80+ gold probably a bit overkill but it was worth it and it has a 10yr warranty. Cables are sleeved and look good and are easy to manipulate where you want them.

Operating System

windows that is all

Case Fan

Push a ton of air and there quite plus they matched my other fans.

Monitor

I absolutely love this monitor not 4k but the color and features are awesome its ips and comes in freesync or G-synce cant beat this thing!

Keyboard

Soooo many features and the build quality is amazing. I really enjoy the clicky green switches!

Mouse

It's a big mouse so if you have small hands probably not the best fit but its very comfortable and performs very well.

Headphones

Got them at an amazing deal and they are so comfortable and have really cool lighting features. The sound quality of the mic and headphones are great also.

Other

So easy to install and they are software controllable.

Did u buy the hyperbeast case because it looked cool? Or for csgo?

stephenbouck submitter 4 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Both but I just really liked the case scheme as well

The sole reason why I like your PC is the fact you brought a S340 Hyper Beast.

stephenbouck submitter 4 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

That's all lol what don't u like about it

JustBuilding 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Nah... nothing else to dislike.

No one has anything to add or change??

If it was my pc, I'd add some custom sleeved cables. Overall a clean look, and your cable management looks decent. I'm not too fond of the LED colour, but that's just personal taste. Thumbs up.

yeah custom cables are coming just got to get them ordered and the colors arent permanent lol im still messing with colors lol

Overall, I think it's a pretty solid build as it seems to be Law approved +1! Although, I think adding some RGB/LED fans would make the build pop more. Did you ever get any custom cables done for it? If so I would like to see some updated photos. Thanks for sharing!

stephenbouck submitter 4 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

i haven't yet I'm getting the cables for Christmas and i just ordered the new LL rgb corsair fans so more pics incoming I'm also thinking of changing cases for more air flow not sure yet.

Nice build, man. Haha I can see why you asked about the price of my 980ti. It seems you got your 1080ti when it was affordable.
