Description

Re-upload of a similar build from January; i've changed the peripherals, some internals and done a little renovating of the RGB.

Recently changed my job which has given me a lot more time to relax and procrastinate, resulting in this little budget build being thrown together to tide me over for the Ryzen 3000 and Navi launches. The majority of part choices were made solely for aesthetic reasons and i have no regrets. Black sleeved cable extensions were used to replace the horrid standard cables, a white led kit from NZXT is used at quite a low brightness to light up the interior and the RAM and 3 fans all run off of iCUE with a lighting node PRO. PSU Shroud was purchased from the corsair website [it's actually the shroud for the 460X] along with the high airflow intake kit and the top filter.

Played around with some overclocking on the graphics card, RAM and CPU and i'm very happy with the temperatures and frequencies:

CPU is running at 3.8GHz up from 3.2GHz, under load at a max temp of 53C. RAM is running at 3200MHz CL15 up from 3000MHz CL15. GPU is running at 1415MHz on the core and 2150MHz on the memory, up from 1350MHz and 2000MHz respectively, under load at a max temp of 72C.

The temps taken here were while the system was running on my standard fan curve which runs almost silent until the graphics card hits 80C when it ramps up quite a bit. Silent fan curve increases temps roughly 2C and performance curve decreases them roughly 3C on average.

3DMark Firestrike score is up from 11420 at stock settings to 12676 on the Overclock. May mess around with the OC some more to see just what i can squeeze out of the system, but at the moment it runs Apex, R6S and BF4 all at much higher framerates than the monitor supports on High/Very High settings so there's no real need.. yet.

Any questions, i'm happy to answer, thanks :)

Do you have to get the lighting node pro for the rgb to work with the fans?

as far as i'm aware, without the lighting node pro they will cycle through on the rainbow wave effect but to use with iCUE and have software level control you need the lighting node pro. I got the two LL140 fans as a pack with the lighting node pro and the LL120 as an 'extension'. the lighting node pro can fit up to 6 devices.

They're actually really good for the price, but with that comes you get what you pay for. They're a bit tight around the head and ears, sound quality is good for gaming but i tend to take them off if i'm watching media etc!
