Description

First ever PC built from scratch.... I wanted a PC for Video and Photo Editing, Premiere Pro and Photoshop accordingly and also to be somehow futureproof.

In general I'm very happy, the only problem was with RAM memories which they didn't play at dual channel at first but after the BIOS update everything played fine at 3200!

The temps are really good, I don't play games but under work load with Noctua NH-U12S installed the max temps are about 60C.

Part Reviews

CPU

A little beast with decent price/performance ratio!

CPU Cooler

Very easy to install with the video instructions from Noctua at Youtube. Keeping my Ryzen 3600X cool (47-60C)

Motherboard

Overall a really solid motherboard, I believe the instructions could be better for a newbie. Posted from the first time but I had a problem with RAM modules, it didn't recognize the second RAM module, after some BIOS update and restarts it recognized it and played DUAL Channel @3200. Another con is that the main PCIe slot is very close to the processor socket so there is not enough space between the CPU cooler and the GPU. Be careful with those big Air CPU coolers!

Memory

They are really solid RAMs, they play @3200 from the first time (X570 mobo).

Storage

Just pure speed and stability.

Video Card

I don't play games but overall I'm very satisfied from the performance of RX 5700, also it doesn't run so hot and you can barely hear it from inside the case which stands 1 meter away from me.

Case

Nice case with a decent cable managment

Power Supply

Very happy with this little monster, super quite and rock solid!

Probably should have went with the 3600 rather than the 3600x. 50 dollars cheaper with only a 2 percent lower performance.

That's correct 3600 is the best performance per dollar CPU in Ryzen 3, unforounately I have already ordered 3600X when I saw the tests...

Well done! Report back after you've done a little video editing with that. I bet it will nice. Good photo of the memory spot with the tight clearances there. That video card is indeed really close, wow. Is the chipset fan noticeable at all?

Yeah I think Asrock Steel Legend has somehow poor PCI placement, don't know why they put it so close to the CPU.. No chipset fan is really really quite ;-)

Also looking to build a similar AMD rig. Was just wondering if you recommend just using the stock cooler that comes with the 3600 CPU? Or why not?

I never tried with the stock cooler because I was afraid since I read that the 7nm are generally getting too hot... so I installed the CPU from the first time with the Noctua. Currently with noctua the temps are 43 and max 59C, I don't believe you can get these numbers with the stock cooler
