Description

Getting this beast off the ground was somewhat a chore. If you have the Gigabyte Aorus boards, be aware that there are issues between the RGB Fusion software and AMD's current drivers for 5700XT (as of 08/24/19). Uninstalling and having a rainbow CPU cooler was better for me than the constant BSODs from it.

Other than that minor hitch, this thing is running quiet and nice. XMP was easy to set up, and am running at profile 3 (3600 CL16). BIOS was easy to flash to newest from Gigabyte. Not much more that I could ask for.

Also, this is my first time ever using 144Hz, and... it's amazing.

How do you like gaming on that I am looking at getting a 5700 XT for 1080P @ 144hz (Not looking to hit 144Hz just got the monitor on sale and its a Asus gaming monitor) I worry about the 5700 XT paired with a 3900X will not make for enjoyable gaming at high frames. I mostly place FPS and DCS World a flight Sim

A 3900x with a 5700 XT should be more than enough for what you’re looking for

The 3900x will be way more than enough and the 5700xt will be great If you manly play dcs I would invest in a ton of ram as I have see DCS take up to 32 gigs by itsself. If you don't have that much ram dont worry it will still run fine but DCS is a ram hungry game

The Pulse is great. With the setup I have, and three fans intake and two exhaust, I haven't seen temps get above 70C. I usually run VSync on everything, and haven't noticed any adverse effects.

For example, I max out settings on CS:GO and it's smooth as butter. If I turn off Vsync I think I can get 200+ FPS easily.

Looks so simple but it really packs a punch. I must say i really like it. As if everything casual gamer needs is in there and even a bit of extra.

Thank you! It is running everything I play right now with ease. If there's ever a hiccup it's usually the game (in my case, Escape from Tarkov).

I was actually one of the lucky ones who got it off Newegg. Just camped out basically, and waited for it to come in stock. I knew they updated their site in the morning, so I would refresh the page every 2-3 min. for hours at a time. Time consuming and tedious, but it paid off.

Another easy way to get the notifications is nowinstock.

Hows the temperatures? I'm currently working on a similar build, just waiting to order the 5700xt. I saw you're running the stock cooler which will be the same for me for a while as least.

Even with the cheap Arctic fans, I haven't seen temps get above 70C, CPU or GPU. I game for multiple hours at a time, and still haven't had any issues.

I got it from Newegg. I was one of the lucky ones that got it during the 10min it stayed in stock.

The cables are from a company called Asia Horse, and yes, they came with all the combs (both in black and clear).

Do you have any bottleneck issues with the ryzen 7 3700k and the rx 5700xt?

The moniter that you put on your list is 75 hz Second get an aftermarket cooler (I reccomend the dark rock 4 from Be quiet) and overclock your cpu to around 4.0 ghz But other than that Nc build bro

Dude, the stock cooler is doing fine by the looks of it. Also the way he has aftermarket thermal paste and a stock cooler shows that he plans to use the stock cooler. People underestimate stock AMD coolers nowadays. The stock cooler with my 1700 got me to 3.7 easy, whilst still being decently cool and quiet.

Ah, that's my fault. Mine is the 144Hz version.

I do! I need to upload some better photos. Got a new RGB setup on the inside to help.

Just added another one without the glass, you can see everything including the new RGB setup.
