Built this for a friend that needed a new computer, found great deals on these parts, it came in under $800. Made sure it was a x570 so he has plenty of future proofing.
I would like to give it 5 stars but the 3900x/3950x are my 5 star just because of pure performance, but the 3600 takes the cake for performance/dollar in my book. Great speed, 6 cores is plenty for a casual gamer, and just a solid chip.
Pro: It's a x570 board It's on the cheaper side of x570 boards in a good way It has access and can use all of gigabytes software So far seems to be handling light overclocking
Con: It's a cheap x570 board so it's kinda skimpy on specs.
They bumped right up to 3600 and kept stock timings with a +0.10 in voltage. Great performer for value!
It's a low/mid end 10 series Nvidia card, the only reason to get this is if your getting a great deal on it and you need a video card reasonably soon, otherwise I'd wait for a deal on a 5700xt or a higher end 20 series card.
So this thing is HUGE, like I'd only ever recommend it for people that want a 360mm front and 240mm top radiator with custom water loop that wana display it all. If your AIOing the CPU/GPU this is just to much. I could see it being nice for an all air cooled set up just because of the massive internal volume and separate chambers for the PS and hard drives from the MB/GPU side and being able to have five intake 140mm fans.
It's a 750w power supply lol. The cables are a bit long for the Corsair Crystal Series cases as the PS is mounted behind the MB (so really it makes it a moot point as you can stash as much extra cable in the PS side where no one can see it.) but for a case that mounts the PS under the MB I'm sure the length dose the job.
