Description

I built this Ryzen 7 2700x wanting it to be the best possible build with a appropriate budget. The aesthetics of the pc are all complimentary to one another in its entirety. RGB lighting on all the components except for the SSHD+SSD and keeping the build exclusive to the same branding throughout. The absolute powerhouse PC is intended for hardcore gaming editing streaming or just multi tasking period.

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing performance but tends to be a problem with Performance mode in the power options. Make sure to set it to balanced with a minimum processor state of 20%.

Motherboard

Super nifty Clear CMOS and Bios Flashback buttons on the motherboard.

Memory

Super pleasing to the eye and sweet for a aesthetic build.

Storage

Just a good SSD. I would go bigger if you plan on putting your OS, games & applications on your SSD.

Storage

Nice Fast SSHD but if you have a SSD to put your OS on it is so much faster to boot. To be fair to the SSHD, it is so much faster than your typical HDD.

Video Card

Best bang for buck, on par with any other GPU of its caliber & is the prettiest looking of any other 1070's in my opinion.

Case

Great ATX Mid Tower and looks beautiful compared to all other cases I've ever seen. The only problem is the air flow is constricted by its front tempered glass front pane.

Power Supply

this PSU has only 2 (6+2) Pci-e power cable coming from 1 strand. In other words you need a different power supply for SLI Crossfire. (2 Graphics Cards) The power supply only has 3 out of the 5 power protections a PSU can have.

Operating System

So cheap and awesome getting OEM product keys on ebay. Word of advice, make sure the ebay seller has good selling score and you'll be just fine.

Case Fan

These fans tie my whole case together so perfectly. If you like RGB lights I definitely recommend this for your build.

Keyboard

just a keyboard but works perfectly!

Mouse

Very accurate but a bit big for me. The weight of the mouse can help to not over correct/over do your mouse movements in FPS/TPS games

Protip (and this is my most honest opinion) The Define R6 Blackout has a spot for a BD drive if you don't use a Liquid Cooling AIO. It's also Tempered Glass with noise dampening.

Really uneasy to see the drive just arranged like that. Disc vibrations make me uneasy with the way that drive is placed.

And it just ruins the airflow to the GPU.

I have 6 case fans anyway and it didn't affect any of my temps for the hardware so its okay by me.

yea I wasn't thing about my bd drive when I bought the case and it didn't have any type of bay for it so I made one ;)

Really cool setup, the case is actually pretty neat.

Looks nice! Add some cheap sleeved cable extensions. Where did you get the CH7 wifi motherboard for 239.99? That's nice. I love this mobo as well. it's in my meshify c build.

SO FAR it seems fine.. But i will say there was a single moment when i thought i could smell it cooking itself. i turned off my system and ran some diagnostics. I turned my pc off of high performance and back to balanced. as well as putting it back to its base clock. havent had any problems in the last 2 months since
