Description

A nice mid range PC build for a friend. Bought the 1070 used for $230. Pretty satisfied with how it turned out. The case fans are Computer Upgrade Ming LED fans. Found on Newegg as CUK halo ring fans. 5 for ~$20. Cheap but work well enough and look great.

It was better than I expected and really nice for a case without a PSU shroud. Most of the cutouts are well placed. But the acrylic side panel and overall feel of the case is a bit on the cheap side but it looks really nice. You can tell that it isn’t premium when you’re handling it but for less than $40 it’s nice.

Could you use custom prices so we know how much you actually spent.

I might go back and look at everything later but the total was $947 with taxes and shipping

This is a pretty good computer for gaming and streaming. I plan to purchase and use an AMD Ryzen 5 as well on my build soon and I hope it works great for you. The overall look of the computer looks cool and this computer is definitely a good price for people who are on a budget.

Nice build. I want to get a used 1070 ti but am worried about used gpus, if they were oc'd too much or ex-bitcoin mining gear. How can u tell a used one is ok?

I wouldn’t worry too much about mining gpu’s. Those are typically under-clocked. Lots of hours but never stressed.

Oh no kidding! But wouldn't they degrade from the long hrs & heat somewhat too?

Unfortunately there’s no way to really know until you have it! I’m sure this one was used for mining. I found it on EBay and messages the seller who said it wasn’t mined but who knows. It only gets +110 on the core and +250 on the memory but that could just be the silicon lottery. eBay has a money back guarantee though if it just outright doesn’t work. Still worth it even if the overclock isn’t amazing!

That's ok cause I'm not rly interested in OCing. Yeah, I kinda expect ebay sellers to lie. :/ Thx for the info though! So, would the ryzen 2600 & the mobo you're using work for a 1070 ti? Or go for a 2600x, 2700, 1700x etc?

It would be fine for a 1070ti. The 1070ti is really more suited to 1440p or very high refresh monitors at 1080p

Did that ram work at 3000mhz out of the box?

It did once the correct profile was applied in the bios.

Hello, im interested in the same memory RAM how it goes? you think that will be a problem ifi used it in a B450 MOBO?

  • 13 months ago

The RAM ran fine at its rated speed with just the click of a button in the BIOS. You might have to enter the values manually in some BIOS though. But the memory itself is great. A B450 board shouldn’t make any difference but might perform just a bit better. They’re about the same price at the moment anyway.

Thanks You for replying, i'm glad to know that everything is alright with the ram, i Will pair It with a Gigabyte B450 AORUS M and a Ryzen 5 2600.

Nice setup :) I have a question for you. I am yesterday I ordered ryzen 5 2600 and msi gaming pro. But on the internet it says bios incompatibility and bios update required. Did your computer work without updating BIOS? sorry for my english...

When the 2000 series was first released older A320/B350 needed updates but most all new A320/B350 will ship with a BIOS that supports 2000 series chips. PCpartpicker still flags this as incompatible. But I’ve built four Ryzen builds recently with 2000 series chips and B350 boards with no problems.

I installed my system today and worked without problems. Since the motherboard is the newest production, the BIOS is up to date. Thanks for your reply.
