Description

My old computer, Intel 4670k, 8gig ram, gtx760 was starting show its age last year. So over Thanksgiving 2018 I upgraded the gpu to a RX590. That temporarily put off the inevitable...…..a new build!!

Well, this fall after seeing the new Ryzen processors come out, I decided to pull the plug and start a new build. I didn't want to go crazy, but keep it reasonably priced. I knew I wanted the Ryzen 3700x to be at the center of this build. Also 8gigs ram wasn't going to cut it for the next 5 years and 16 was the current sweet spot. I decided that 32 gigs was where I wanted to be to somewhat future proof (if even possible). Then started looking at cases and motherboards. Once I saw the Lian Li Dynamic that was it. I decided that was the case and I would go with a white build with some RGB lighting.

I decided on the Asus Prime x570-Pro mainly because of color scheme, price, and features. Same for Corsair Vengeance Ram. I decided to use the Corsair AIO cooler because of looks mainly. The 1TB Adata M.2 SSD is my main hard drive. I also have a home network mass storage drive hooked to this pc.

I mainly use this PC for home use, light video editing, and some gaming. My gaming is done at 1080p so I decided to stay with the RX590 for now and upgrade it next year or so. Although, because it was blue, I had to paint it white to match.

Everything went together flawlessly inside this case and I am pleased with the results. My son happened to be playing with some legos while I was building and when I saw Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers, I knew I had found them a new home :)

Stole his son's LEGOS and sealed them in a glass case so that his son could see them every day, but not touch them #diabolical

What type of paint did you use for this? I have been considering doing this to my Vega 64.

Looks amazing. I have to say, this is the second build I have seen on here outside of my own, https://pcpartpicker.com/b/8bP323, that features the 011 Dynamic as a Stormtrooper build. Cable management is clean and the coloring of the 590 is on point. Keep up the great work, hope it stays as a good build for you as long as you need it.

Awesome build I hope to build a similar computer like yours with Ryzen CPU's except I would have a different approach with the theme part of the entire build tho but you did an amazing job tho.

Nice Build! I really like the way it looks especially the 590. Speaking of the 590 would you recommend it over a 1070? Planning my pc and would like to know!

If just comparing the performance of the rx590 to the 1070, the 1070 is better. With that being said, it is also more $$.

Ive also seen that the 590 draws more power. I think ill stick to choosing the G1 1070. Thanka for the reply.

The new 1660 super is pretty close to the 1070 (4.5% slower) while only costing $230. Unless you see a good deal on a used one I'd get the 1660 super.

Wow, it looks so CLEAN! Nice work. What fans are those along the bottom and sides? Unable to see the logo on the hubs.

Good looking build.

I would sacrifice the RGB and liquid cooling that expensive and replace rx 590 with a 5700 XT. It may give you more power for higher games and even play at 1440p

my only thing is the motherboard this is just my opinion so I'm probably wrong. anyways I would of definitely pick the x570 gigabyte one as to me the gigabyte boards seem to be killing it

I think the only flaw is that you have two different types of storm troopers xD Great Build!!!

That looks to be a huge bottleneck right there.

My suggestion: RX 590 - RTX 2080

Had the 590 from a previous build, I will be updating it at some point because yes it will be a bottleneck of the system.

Removed shroud and backplate. Used white plastidip spray. Was very easy. About 8 screw and it came apart.

Did you use the same psu cables as came with the psu?

No, got some extensions. The ones that come with the PSU are white but don't look as clean.

Being a star wars fan i think that this is just great. I also love what you did with sticking to one color theme. Looks Great!

Great Build! What are your thoughts on the fan setup on this case versus a more traditional front intake?

  • 15 days ago
  • 1 point

I chose this case purely on looks alone. Personally, I think front intakes would probably work a little better for temps. But with that being said, with the fan setup I am using, I have good positive air pressure and temps are not a problem. Took me awhile to balance looks with airflow but in the end, I think it worked out well.
