Description

Since this is 2nd gen RYZEN and 2nd gen RYZEN motherboard, i can use "STOREMI" software to make my 5400RPM hard drive as fast as SSD. I chose 2.5" HDD so i can put it next to my SSD in the back and take out the Hard drive bay in the bottom for cable management space! The cable management is hidden because of the DARK Tempered glass and Doesn't show even when the whole case is lighten up by RGB. MSI mystic sync is not as good as i hoped it would be. Asus Aura sync and Corsair icue is definitely better option. Stealth build. The MSI GAMING X 1070ti is a BEAST!!! I love the look of it a lot. The fractal design Meshify C is AMAZING at airflow and best cable management. It's built like a tank and love how compact it is. *The monitor is "lenovo y27g" is a G-SYNC monitor for $350.

Great build man, planning to purchase the same case and gpu for my build. Might wait till Black Friday / Cyber Monday.

+1 on Mystic Light being POS. Had to deal with it on my secondary build (X370 Gaming Pro Carbon) and it sucks balls

wasiful007 submitter 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Ya i wish MSI would listen to their customers.

Dnehiba3 1 point 5 months ago

I agree mystic light is lame

User0420 2 points 6 months ago

How far can you push the 2600 with that cooler? Great build btw +1

Yajirobijuankenobi 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

I used that cooler before I got an AIO due to a huge increase in ambient temps. With ambient temps of ~71F in my previous apartment, this cooler could keep my 2600X at 65-69C while playing Assassin's Creed Origins. Temps could spike past 69F but never reaches 80C

wasiful007 submitter 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

i agree

RoyalSovereign 2 points 6 months ago

wasiful007 submitter 5 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

I think MSI has the best design for their components in the game

Manula.Pabasara 1 Build 2 points 6 months ago

Those enermax fans look lit!

Dude the hard drive 5400rpm?

HotShot_01 9 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Tbh if he dosent intend on using it and perhaps got it for cheap it really dosent matter. I was gaming on a 5400rpm drive and it really isnt too bad.

J-Flex 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

I want this case for my next build and I love the ring fans. Does that mobo sync up and the rgb in your build?

wasiful007 submitter 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Yes I can control it with MSI mystic sync but they are simple RGB nothing fancy tricks

Fuzz0410 1 point 5 months ago

How is the cooler? Looking to get it for my build

wasiful007 submitter 5 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

A bit better than cooler master hyper 212 evo but it's mainly for the good looks rather than serious overclock

TheYoungOG 1 point 5 months ago

How did you get the mystic sync to work

the_flying_pig 1 point 2 months ago

Is the RGB controllable with Gigabyte fusion it doesn't say.

wasiful007 submitter 5 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

yes i think it will work if the mobo supports "ARGB"

the_flying_pig 1 point 2 months ago

Will this work do you think?

wasiful007 submitter 5 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

yes it will

the_flying_pig 2 points 2 months ago
