Description

This is my workstation/gaming build for Virtualization, heavy multitasking and gaming. Games I play include CS:GO, Rocket League, Kerbal Space Program.

Part Reviews

CPU

Incredibly fast and only $500. Comes with a great stock cooler that I gave to my brother as an upgrade. Does run a little hot though, even with a 360mm aio.

CPU Cooler

Cheap enough 360mm aio. Fans get a little loud but the included fan header is very nice. The tubing is high quality. Installation was easy.

Motherboard

It's a good looking motherboard with a great VRM setup for overclocking. It's got lots of build in headers for RGB and USB 3.0 but for some reason no Type-C header. The Rainbow RGB lights are cool but MSI's Mystic Light software for controlling the lights is garbage and crashes pretty often.

Case

Amazing how cheap this case is. The glass is very good looking and easy to fit on. The back compartment of the case hides all the cable clutter.

Kerbal Space Program! Is having 12 cores helping your Kerbal ventures or is there much difference from only a few cores. Also, what are the temps with that liquid cooler? Nice job man.

Did you have to update the bios? If so, any tips? I'm also going with a 3900x so any help is much appreciated.

Yeah I updated the bios by borrowing my brother's 2600x. It went pretty smoothly, I can't think of anything to tell you.

For the ram, where you able to overclock it? And what timings you've used setup.
