So a couple months ago I started purchasing the parts for my new PC. I wanted something high-end that would last a good few years, and this is what I created.
The build went quite smoothly, the only real hiccup I had was my lack of understanding of the RAM I had purchased. I was unaware it required a manual overclock to actually reach the advertised speeds. But upon figuring this out Google was my friend with an actual guide for the exact RAM kit and I was then sorted.
The only changes I can see in the near future are the CPU cooler and the storage. I went with the stock cooler because of the fantastic value that is the Ryzen 7 2700x, but it is actually very load under load even with an aggressive fan curve to help combat noise. I will probably pick up a 2TB HDD just to store less popular games and media.
The next step is improving the work station, which will be a long process as this is a new home, and decorating needs to be tackled before I get anything finalised.
Sorry for the lack/quality of images, if you want more, I can get those sorted.
Can't fault this processor at all, what a great value piece of kit.
This wasn't my first choice, as the main competitor is the same cost, but unfortunately was sold out all across the UK for a long time! So I went with this, and I have no regrets at all.
What a great looking board that performs as good as it looks!
Had a hiccup with this RAM as I didn't realised manual overclocking was required to reach the advertised speeds, but once you do figure it out (Which with a simple google search is very easy to do so) this RAM works like a charm with Ryzen CPUs
Excellent value for an excellent performing SSD
This card is massive, but extremely cool! It handles anything thrown at it with ease at 1440p on high-ultra settings
Beautiful case, which was an absolute dream for cable management!
Be warned, it is a fingerprint magnet, requires some upkeep to make sure it's looking fresh.
Airflow wise, pick yourself up an extra case fan or two for the back and top, and it performs phenomenally
Excellent quality PSU, would highly recommend
