Description

Here we go. My first PC build. I had the ram and ssd already from my old prebuilt. (I know, 32 GB is overkill.) I bought everything else at Micro Center, (I would've used a Dark Rock Pro 4, but it wasn't there.) Also, yes, 850 watts might be overkill, but I had extra budget space, so it's whatever. Still working out the OS and everything else, I had it on the 2.5" drive, so I moved it to the other drive, then immediately wiped it. I'm glad I waited for ryzen 3000, it works really nicely. Also, I really don't play any AAA games, but heyyyyy, it runs minespeeper at 240p and can even get 12fps! Amazing performance, right? Also, if you're going to build a system like this, CHECK THE SIZE. The motherboard could barely fit, and I had to wiggle the graphics card in. Also, I'm eating paper for a few months.

I too have a hard time choosing between food and bills for the next month or a sweet new Zen 2 system like this. It's a tough call, might have to consult the Magic 8-Ball for advice. Great build! Also, 32 might be overkill today but I wouldn't be surprised to see it hold up well in about 4-5 years.

Take your time and purchase later on, tech will always get replenished with probable price drops lol. Better be eligible to physically live the tomorrow than turn homeless with a rig nowhere to be powered on.

Oh my god! An awesome build from you. Must be really fast considering I am on a Macbook 2010 and I have dreams of building one of these -_-. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ZsBN3b

Have around 2k to build my first PC and this looks perfect. I have a 144hz 1440p monitor already that I want to pair it with. I'm hearing about issues with bios with the new Ryzen did you have any issues setting it up? And were you able to test any games on it yet (mainly play esports titles) or can you speak to performance otherwise? Also, would you recommend to get a different case than the one you have? This would be my first build and from the picture it looks like a super tight fit and from the little I know I'm not sure about dealing with thermal/heating issues. Gratz on the build mate enjoy!

If it'd be your first build, I might recommend waiting a month or 2 before building with a 3rd gen Ryzen. Just to get more kinks out of the system. Early adoption almost always has some issues along the way.

Yeah I'm probably waiting to the end of the month and I'll see what people are saying regarding the current issues that are popping up.

I didn't have any issues with the bios, but my crazy hard drive config probably over complicated the setup. A 750d would probably be a better fit. It got about 2000 on cinebench, and I have a 150 mhz overclock on the gpu, the cpu is at 4ghz, and I get about 3x the performance as my old pc, (1050 ti, i5 6500) and everything is super condensed in the case. It would probably max out most esports titles, (I have none to test on) and the cpu gets up to about 70 degrees at the most.

Did the cpu come with a rgb cooler inside the box?

How's your DDR4-3200 working with your 3900x? I'm considering the same combination.

I haven't had any problems with it yet.

Have you tested your memory speeds?

Not yet, actually. I don't have my computer with me right now though, so I can't test it.
