After almost 5 years with my previous build I figured it was time for an upgrade. I wanted to move up in resolution and still enjoy somewhat high FPS in games like Battlefield 5, this build runs around 115-125 FPS on mostly ultra settings. I'm more than happy with the level of performance i'm currently experiencing.

Anything without a price listed are components I had already from my last build.

I have pretty much the same build. (same processor, same mobo, same RAM but in black, Gigabyte GTX 2070, EVGA 650w gold+ GQ psu). I've been having 2 problems: 1. Getting iCue to see my RAM for me to control the RGB. 2. I'm getting random black screens which I narrowed down to the GTX 2070.

Any suggestions?

Hey I'm sorry to hear about your issues, for the ram I would try reinstalling icue/reseating the ram or possibly a bios update. I've also read about enabling SPD write in bios, though Ive read the option isn't always available on amd chipset mobos And regarding the screen issue I would recommend getting an RMA on the GPU there were definitely some issues with the earlier cards even the 2070 even though most of the fuss was about the 2080ti Hope you can get everything working properly

Thanks for the tips! I'm trying to diagnose it now. I think it might be bad RAM that might be causing the blackouts too.

Damn, that’s one solid build. I love the colour scheme, great part choices as well. Also those cables look so good.

Nice build! I am considering buying the nzxt h500i..or h500... but, I saw a comment that LEDs have low intensity or that the hub app does not work correctly. It is true? better buy the h500 and add the hub/leds separately? thx.

YDY_S4vage submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Thank you. I would go with the "i" version personally. The LEDs seem plenty bright to me and you can add another nzxt light strip by Daisy chaining it to the existing one as well, the fan hub is great because you aren't stuck with only a few chassis fan connectors on the motherboard or forced to use splitters or run extensions across the board potentially ruining the aesthetic of the build. And regarding the app I personally have not had any issues with it. It's simple to setup, fast and stable (not clunky like some software, feels rather intuitive), and it offers plenty of information regarding temps, utilization, and fan speeds for your various components (wouldn't replace a standalone app like hwmonitor but it's always nice to have)

Thank you for answering me, this is the video I had seen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWNi-v11I10 Can the fan control be disabled and the task performed by the motherboard? or how does it really work? I plan to buy the same cooler! (i7-8700)

YDY_S4vage submitter 1 Build 2 points 2 months ago

In order to not use the fan control you would just plug the fans directly to the mobo, the fan control built into the case is a separate hub which If disabled wouldn't route power to the fans I'm assuming. And now that I look at it the LEDs are a bit on the dim side but there's always the option to add another strip that connects directly to an expansion slot on the existing strip. But if you aren't gonna use the fan controller and want brighter LEDs I would just go with the non "i" version of the case. Hope this helps

sermartin 1 point 2 months ago

Thanks! I like i version, and that it comes with everything included, but I'm worried about having the problems that some users describe. I will analyze the cost of buying the led and the hub separately, see if it's worth it or not.

Curious at to what kind of speakers those are?!

YDY_S4vage submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

They are the PreSonus Eris E3.5 , definitely not high end but they deliver pretty good and balanced sound for the price (silk-dome tweeters at this price point are hard to find).

I'm rocking the same motherboard and RAM in a Meshify C TG. I was looking to grab that CPU Cooler, but am I right in seeing that it covers up the A1 RAM slot?

Edit: My mistake. I'm looking at the Dark Rock 4 PRO, which seems to be slightly different.
