Description

First time building my own PC after a couple years of casual saving and learning how to go about building on my own. it went smoother than I expected and turned out great. It has some drawbacks but I thought I got all the parts at a reasonably fair price considering the market at the moment. Ryzen 5 1600 Overclocked to 3.8GHz on the stock cooler with reasonable temps and not much fan noise. Originally had 8gb of memory but convinced myself to make it 16gb considering what AAA titles are requiring now. SSD for the OS and a couple games. Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 is the perfect mid range, 1080p card in my eyes. I got it for a good price and it hasn't disappointed me yet. The Core v21 is bigger than I expected and the window panel scuffs easily but you get what you pay for and it has lots of dust filters which is nice; it'll probably be the first thing I replace in the build. Went with white led's to keep the "gamer" aspect a little more low profile.

Nice neat build w great choices. Almost went same route w the artic MB & the blue sapphire 580 but alas saved some money on other choices. Regret it now looking at yours.
