Hi Guys, Im 14 and this is my 2nd pc build. I am really happy with how this PC turned out, the build went smoothly and without problems. I had a budget of €1200 and that's what it cost at the time of purchase.
This build is purely for gaming so i went with a R5 1600 as I didn't need the extra 2 cores from the Ryzen 7 lineup. I went with 8gb of ram as the prices skyrocketed and i just couldn't afford more than 8gb. The Memory is OCed to 3000mhz. I went for the Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 mostly because it was on sale for £480 on amazon at the time (NOV 2017). This card crushes any game at 60fps 1440p, and 144fps at 1080p. It is also Factory overclocked and is quite slim for a 1080. I am planning on upgrading to the GTX 2080 when it comes out. I was going to go for the Asus Prime X370 Pro as I had a great experience with the Asus Prime Z270-A but I just Couldn't resist the beautiful white PCB of the Msi b350 tomahawk arctic. I did not need the extra features of the X370 chipset so i just went ahead the the b350 board. The NZXT s340 elite was my dream case so I had to use it for my build. Cable management was very easy and was pleasant to build in although i would've like to have been bable to top mount my 240 mm rad. The deepcool captain 240ex was my AIO of choice due to its white coated radiator. My PSU is the EVGA 650w GQ, as it was on sale for 50£ and is Gold Certified.
Some mods include custom painted PCI-E brackets, SSD trays and custom sleeved cables from ShakMods.
Feedback would be much appreciated :)
