This my second build at the age of 17. I have been wanting to get into streaming for quite a while now. However I didn't have the CPU for streaming. So when my old computer started crashing randomly and black Friday came around, I decided to pull the trigger. My plan was to get a new CPU, Motherboard, Ram, Case, and CPU cooler. This means that my hard drives, graphics card and power supply I brought over from my old build. I was originally going to go with the ryzen 5 1600 but then the gigabyte board went on sale for a hundred less. I also figured the i7 would give me better in game performance. For those curious on the deals I got I paid $310 for the CPU, $180 for the motherboard, and $190 for the Ram. A week or so later and all of my new parts were at my door step. Sadly I had to do homework(very little) first before I could build. Now that I had my homework done, I began to build. Since this was my second build I got straight to it. Everything was very easy to install. I really like what Fractal Design did with the fan headers. Made cable management so much easier and cleaner looking. The Corsair 400C is an awesome case. Love the side panel. My only complaint is that cable management was a little tough to do(especially since I want them to be pretty much perfect), not much space to cable manage in . At this point I brought my pc back to my desk and powered her on. Everything booted up just fine. On my old computer I would get about 80fps on low settings on Overwatch. I can now do 120 fps on high(haven't tried to go any higher yet). All across the board I was getting better performance in game. I play Overwatch, Rainbow six siege, Csgo, and Warframe(occasionally). These are the games I play the most at the moment. Also I could listen to music and have discord on without breaking my computer. I am really pleased on how the 7800x is performing. So far it handles everything I throw at it.
Things I will you it for -Gaming(of course) -Streaming -A bit of video editing -CAD(since I have Solidworks) -Whatever else pops up
Temps -CPU idle - 25 ° C load - 55 ° C(Have seen it spike to about 65° C before) -GPU idle - 30 ° C load - 65 ° C
In progress things -New monitor(coming Christmas) -New graphics card(The one I have now works just fine, this is just done the road) -Cable management of desk(waiting on monitor) -Better mic(for stream) -Webcam(for stream)
Sorry for bad pics. Phone camera is not very good
Hope you guys enjoy my build. Please share your thoughts. I like getting feed back to see how I could do things different for the next time.
