Description

Hi All, This build was made with the purpose of gaming and some productivity tasks. I've overclocked the CPU to sit at 3.8 GHz stable, this took quite a bit of tweaking as it was my first time. I did a fair amount of research prior to buying the components. Yes the case is flipped upside down, it makes more sense that way.

Part Reviews

CPU

Excellent budget component, easily overclocked when paired with a B350. I initially wasn't sure about team red but now that I've seen it running it works great.

Motherboard

Runs well, overclocks, has a usb-c port.

Memory

Fast enough to run with Ryzen architecture would upgrade to 16 GB but ram is expensive

Storage

Fast, Reliable, and runs windows 10 well

Video Card

I wasn't sure about the small form factor or the fact it was powered from the mother board, but that being said it runs like a dream. Easy install

Case

I like white cases and this one has a side panel. Pros: - Reasonably small - Good air flow - Can be flipped upside down Cons: - Power button cant be flipped

Power Supply

Got it for free from a friend and it works

Yeah because of only 3 pin connectors on the fans they basically run 100% all the time, so quite a lot of dust gathers. They don't make it easy to clean out the filters either. Will investigate need filters

Are your temps good using that stock cooler to OC? I had to upgrade to a better cooler to OC a 1600x. Nice case. Love the way it hides cables

Thanks, After overclocking they temps didn't rise above 60C, thats in synthetic benchmarks and actual gaming.

I put a Hyper T2 for cheap on my 1600x (they don’t come w/a stock cooler and the T2 fits in my V1 case-140 mm max) and temps came down about 10 degrees. I recently picked up an AMD Wraith cooler with a very faint white LED for $15 on eBay. I thought it looked cool then found it could handle up to 125 watts!! This cooler came with an FX 8350 and it is a monster little cooler with heat pipes. I may put it on my 2200g just to see if it helps when I start OC’ing both parts of that apu. As cool as AIO’s look, I just can’t stand the thought of dealing with a leak

Yeah thats one of the reasons I changed to Ryzen since they have great stock coolers, that can actually handle overclocks.

Well you can get 1050Ti's here for 150, and $40 can make a huge difference when it comes to buying a budget system but I see your point

This is a pretty cool looking computer. This build should be good for gaming and streaming. The price is good for people on a budget. The overall look of the PC looks nice.

Cheers, I tried to keep it to a reasonable budget but still offer a bit of a kick

about dust: create positive air pressure inside the case. More intake! the pressure created from inside will keep some dust outside. If the pressure is negative it will pull and settle dust inside the case.

I've done that method on my other PC and it worked, I'll do it for this one ofter i invest in new filters
