Description

Hey guys, I just completed my new PC build. My previous PC was black/green razer-themed build. This time, I wanted to go for a clean, minimalistic, white build with some colourful RGB ofcourse!

Hope you enjoy this one. Will add more pictures if required.

Update 1; 8/10/2019: Replaced the Gigabyte Gaming OC 5700 XT with Sapphire 5700 XT Nitro+ for better temps and performance.

Update 2; 18/11/2019: Replaced the Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB with G.Skill Trident Z Neo due to compatibility issues.

Part Reviews

CPU

Based on bang for bucks; great CPU. Fast for gaming and streaming.

Motherboard

Based on bang for bucks; great mobo with plenty of newest utilities and overall clean aesthetics.

Memory

Based on bang for bucks; RGB, fast and reliable. Also compatible with my motherboard for optimal speed.

Storage

Based on bang for bucks; fast.

Video Card

Based on bang for bucks; excellent card with incredible temps and performance is just awesome for 1440p gaming.

Case

Clean aesthetics, white and enough room for cable management. Also, compatible with the newest utilities of X570 motherboard chipsets. (usb 3.2)\

Note: large radiators will fit barely.

Power Supply

Based on bang for bucks; power-efficient, clean aesthetics and quiet.

Case Fan

Aesthetically beautiful fans with great adjustable fan speeds. Fits perfectly in a H510 case and matches with the colour scheme.

Only downside are the price and you need enough space for cable management (lightning - and RGB hub).

Keyboard

Great keyboard. It feels very pleasant and it has stunning colours. Also, I have the one with silent switches which makes it great for gaming in the late nights.

Mouse

Great mouse. I used the Razer Naga mouse for ten years and it was time to set out for a new mouse. This one is a bit heavier than most MMO mouses, which does not make it perfect for FPS games, but it still feels amazing in my hands and the optics are smooth. Overall, this is a pleasant and easy-to-use mouse for all types of games!

Have you had any issues getting the ram to run at 3200mhz? I have the same mobo and ram. When I enable XMP for 3200mhz, I get a black screen that randomly pops up and then the PC reboots.

Running the ram at stock 2133mhz ddr4 speeds works fine though from what I've tested so far.

I have enabled XMP as well, but sadly mine runs at 2133Mhz. Luckily, I do not have random black screens. Perhaps, we need to update the bios?

Good luck man.

I updated the bios, but was doing the XMP auto settings. Im gojng to try manually ebtering the timings and everything sometime soon.

Thanks, you too! Even at 2133, the ram still seems great! I havent noticed any issues with it.

Would you buy that motherboard again or buy something different? Looking in the $200 price range here. Nice Build!

Thanks man! Honestly, I have no issues with the board. I initally went with a X470 chipset but, it was too much of a hassle to upgrade. Also, this is one of the new ''white'' themed motherboards. Furthermore, for its price it has all the necessary options I was looking for. Overall, I am very happy with it!

How do you connect the fans and rgb

  • 4 months ago

Hey man!

Basically, you plug your fans into the RGB hub and then a cable goes from the RGB hub to the lightning pro hub. Afterwards, you connect the lightning pro hub to the motherboard. When everything is done, you can install iCue on your OS. Open it and you can configure the fans lightning etc.

Edit: This is a great guide!

What are your temps

  • 4 months ago

Hey!

I get 35-40 degrees Celcius on idle and around 70-75 on load. I haven't done any adjustments to my Nitro+, so I might be able to get a few degrees off.

Why did you switch the gpu ?

Hello! Sorry for the late reply. The temps are better on the Nitro+ and ofcourse the aesthetics are nicer on the Nitro+ compared to the Gigabyte! Still, the Gigabyte is one of the best 5700 XT overall.

I would add a fan in the front of the case for better airflow.

What were your temps on the gigabyte? Currently have the same case, and mine got up to 92c during a benchmark, which has me a little concerned lol.

Hey man, do you mean junction temp, because it's normal for AMD cards to reach that number. Anyways, I had around 80-85 depending on the game. I thought it was a bit too high, so I swapped to the Nitro+ and I run around 75 degrees on load now. You should definitely undervolt your GPU, it will significantly lower your temps and there is no performance loss!

Well it was reading 92c in after burner on the osd, so not sure which it displays. I guess I can't really rely on that for accuracy. That was on a heaven benchmark I believe, but I've only seen the junction temp reach around 62-70c while playing rb6 for hours. Added a more aggressive fan curve, but haven't messed with undervolting yet.

I was recommended to use Wattman, because MSI afterburner is not the most reliable program. Very nice temps thought. If you are between 70-80c then you have great temps man.

Yeah I heard the same after testing the first time. I switched out my cases and my gpu never goes above 72c now. Appreciate the reply!

Nice bro. I'm still gonna tweak it a little bit to improve the GPU, but it's still a beast! :D

Did you buy the cable mod cars not knowing that the PSU comes with white cable or did your not? XD

I knew the cables were white from the PSU, however I wanted the individually sleeved cables from Cablemod. They look nicer for the build :P
