Description

This is an upper level gaming build with workstation capability (although I've seen much better on this site :). I had some trouble with parts fitting, and had to get a smaller CPU cooler than I had originally planned. Temperature hasn't been an issue though, and performance is truly excellent. Coincidentally, the CPU and GPU temperatures have been nearly identical, although the motherboard runs 2 degrees hotter than the CPU (40c at idle). The X570 chip-set fan isn't even running at idle, but does kick in under load. I did have some GPU sag, even with the included support bracket, so I added an aftermarket one (a basic "Up Here" model). It works very well, and the huge Gaming X Trio graphics card is perfectly level now. The computer name is a joke, and a bit ironic since I main Mercy in Overwatch! :)

I wouldn't call it an upper mid level build, it's definitely a high end one. Not that it matters much, nice build!

Well, I see builds over 3 and 4 thousand bucks shown here, by comparison mine doesn't seem so special! :) Thanks!

I guess it all comes down to your opinion, really.

I'm just calling it "upper-level" now! Note: Beware GPU sag!

Dude, your build is better than half of the builds posted on pcpp over all the years, so yeah, its high end.

Thanks, I'll take a look at that (any suggestions on good methods for that?)

Routing it up the case,or any way that you can hide it is fine

any reason why you went for a 1000w psu when your system barely uses 500?

Two Reasons: 1) It was on sale for the price of a 550w one. :) 2) It leaves room to upgrade (I will get a better GPU at some point, those can be power hungry).

About that, got it on Amazon during Prime Day. Incredible deal. Got the case for $130 then as well.
