Description

Been about 4 years since my last build so was due for an upgrade but felt the itch to build a brand new system ;)

I use my PC for gaming and am getting into streaming + video editing so the Ryzen is a good fit. I'm also a software developer so the Ryzen's extra cores/threads are good for when I'm not gaming.

Put in some extra effort in choosing parts for the aesthetics, and really loving the build. I really enjoy my new PC and hope you like it too!

This is a great build! Where are the custom cables from?

Wow thanks!! I have no idea how these weren't on my radar. Especially the Kraken sleeving, that is going to look crazy if my wife ever picks a color theme. +1

Does the motherboard run just fine with just the 4+4 pin plugged in?

how is the gaming experience like is it like the Intel 8700k and how much framerate do you get out of games like fortnite pubg but this build is very nice

Honestly I probably wouldn’t be able to tell, especially since I’m gaming at 1440p and not 1080p. I think the average difference would be in single digit percentages which is unnoticeable in normal gaming. If you're only gaming, Intel probably still has the advantage but TBH you really can’t go wrong with either 2700x or 8700k.

Personally I chose Ryzen because the extra cores and threads are also useful for video editing and software development. Also I like that the AM4 socket is supported all the way through to 2020 so I have flexibility to upgrade CPU in a couple of years without needing a new motherboard (helped me self justify buying the ROG Crosshair VII lol)

Did you pull out the fans that came on the front and replace them with the Corsair LL120's?

  • 19 months ago

Yes. The case came with 3 x Corsair SP120 RGB fans. I’ll probably use them in another PC

One of the nicest builds I've seen so far +1 Quick question: what are your gpu thermals under load?

I was wondering if you would be able to populate all the ram slots, with the kraken installed? Great looking build by the way!
