Description

It took about 3 years of saving to afford, and finally here it is! Basically a 1080p gaming rig with Ryzen 1800x for better performance with video/photo editing and Maya. My house has cats and 2 dogs (one Newfoundland) the box is a custom build to keep the PC clean of dust and pet hair. In total the box fans flow over 310CFM and all the PC fans together (at full speed) only flow 285CFM max so the PC always has plenty of clean/fresh air. The RX 580 is overclocked to 1450Mhz with it's memory at 2025mhz. So far, every game I've tested (GTAV, Black Mesa, MS Flightsim X, All Fallout games, Remember Me, All Saint's Row games, Ethan Carter, Minecraft and numerous emulated consoles) runs smooth as WD-40 and well over 60fps at max settings and all editing software runs amazingly.

(The cables in the box look much better now; the only pic I have is right after i installed them.)

The first pic is a comparison of my ridiculously old Athlon 2400+ rig with the new one.

I really love how you include all of the prices for your PC. Most people just add stuff and say nothing about the cost.

No prob! It didn't take much effort to input the pricing and I figured people might be interested!

Also, if i ever decide to build and sell these boxes (assuming there is a market for them and I have time), I can refer people here if they question why I'd have to charge so much (Just parts for the box came out to over $250) _^

how loud is the XFX GPU?

It's completely silent when you're not gaming; it drops to 300Mhz and the fans are off (passively cooled). When you start a game or it needs the power, it instantly shoots up to 1450Mhz (1430 out of the box/before OC) and the fans kick on, but I never notice any sound.

How is the board faring? This board or the ASRock Taichi, look to be the most stable ones, in my price point. Ive looked a newegg, some people say this board is broken, how is it for you?

It's been great so far. At first it felt a little beta, but i think most x370s did. The CPU didn't want to go past 3.9Ghz and the memory felt a little flaky (only sometimes wanted to run at 3200 often randomly dropped to single channel). Now i'm hitting 4.1Ghz across all cores with liquid cooling and 3200Mhz on ram no problem.

lol, i was trying to get answers for my build, but as you can see i've built it already, i went with the ASRock X370 Fatality Professional Gaming, a Ryzen 1700, H100iV2 cooler, as well as 16GB of Trident Z RGB, 3200 with a CAS of 16

Is that 650va ups enough for the system? You can check my system and check, because I bought that same UPS yesterday but I didn't really know how these things worked so I did some research and it seems like it not enough for my system, if it is, how much does it last? since I only want it to shut down my pc.

Not quite. During normal day to day usage (web surfing, word processing, even Photoshop), it works well enough. Once the GPU kicks in, it reaches it's limit and the power draw outpaces it's abilities and it has a loud beeping alarm that can be really annoying. Generally when I'm gaming, I've had to move the PC's power plug as I haven't found a way to turn that off. It's biggest function is to give me a few minutes to safely shutdown in the case of a power outage and it worked the one time I've needed it so far. As far as actual runtime on battery, i'm not sure. It only took me about 30 seconds to shut the pc down after all the power went out so I can attest to at least 30 seconds.
