Description

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.

Part Reviews

CPU

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.

Motherboard

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.

Memory

They bumped right up to 3600 and kept stock timings with a +0.10 in voltage. Great performer for value!

Video Card

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.

Case

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.

Power Supply

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.

I wouldn't have spent that much money on the case.

In truth this build was going to be in a 280x with a Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro Mini-ITX Motherboard, but the combo deal he found on Amazon with the 3600 and the full ATX board and the 1060 was to good to pass up. And he really liked the look of the 280x that I have so he went with the big brother.

As he said "found great deals on these parts, it came in under $800"

And the second reason is proly because you can't afford one.

My first guess would be RAM issues, mainly because RAM has been my issue more than anything else. If this has happened since you built it I would double check everything is seated nicely, even a video card not fully seated can cause crazy issues. Without knowing more that's about all I can say to try.

Looks like a very clean build and impressed with the price you got for it. +1

It's a bit cleaner now, took (had) the time to clean up the cables on the bottom, and all the fan cables coming out of the controllers.

Hey, Im looking at getting the same ram and motherboard. Any tips or regrets about these products? Should i go for the pro wifi rather than the elite? Chucking a 3800x in there and want great ram. this stuff looks too good to pass up but its not on the elites qvl... What's your experience with them?

So I didn't go crazy with his settings, we got windows installed/updated, all the drivers downloaded, BIOs updated and then I worked on the RAM settings. Using Ryzen Master and DRAM Calculator I set it at the 3200 and 14-14-14-34 timing that it was sold as. I can say it works without a hitch that way, I didn't get a lot of time to play around with any overclocking of the RAM so IDK what headroom there is.

Alright, cool. Thanks for the reply. That case would benefit (in aesthetic really) with a 240mm or 280mm radiator on the top with 2 more fans on the bottom. I like it alot, also you sleeved your own cables in your other build, heckin awesome lol. How is the mobo skimpy on the specs? should I go for the pro over the elite, where Im from its like 30 ish dollars more. Also those deleted comments are me revising my comments.

Well for him he would never have used the extras that the Pro has, so it was impractical to spend the extra. https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/cwy4nc/x570_aorus_elite_wifi_or_x570_aorus_pro_wifi/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share

There's a good reply on here where a guy sums up the differences of the two and if you think you'll use them then go for it. It was around $60 more when we made this build, $30 makes it a little more like why the hell not.
