Description

"Useless goddess needs to be disciplined."

After 4 years with Intel, switching to AMD Ryzen. Multitasking has been hard with my old i7-4790 so thought I'd start fresh and jump onto Ryzen. Overall aesthetics are white themed to match the light wood table, white haired figurines, and Google Wifi.

Primary Uses:

  • Gaming (Warframe, Witcher 3, Overwatch, Monster Hunter World)
  • 3D Modeling with Autodesk 3ds Max
  • 3D Texturing and rendering with Substance Painter and Marmoset
  • Watching multiple streams

I love that the case has a lot of space and its clean setup.As an avid fan of the Japanese anime Konosuba, I had to use the opportunity to abuse our favorite goddess Aqua.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Fell in love with how aesthetically pleasing this cooler was compared to other mainstream high end coolers. The steam punk vibe sold it for me and it gets the job done (Saw decreases in tempts by 5-7 degrees).

Memory

One of the best looking white colored RAM brands you can find. Has great color controls with Asus AURA software, I only wish there were more white color options from the Asus's software.

Storage

My first NVME and blown away by the instant speeds on boot up and launching heavy programs from 3D ones to games alike. Price wise, I highly recommend going for this over the 970 Pro because the performance won't be noticeable from the typical consumer perspective.

Case

One of the best cases ever designed, I absolutely love the tempered glass window and the white chassis covering the power supply shroud and wires below. The case is very easy and efficient to setup from start to finish so its perfect for beginners and veterans alike to build from the ground up.

Since you use maya and substance painter do you have some sort of portfolio or somewhere you put your artwork and how well does it run? One last question how would you recommend substance painter

Great software and I've been learning to use it the past couple months. Runs really well compared to my old setup, multitasking and rendering is fantastic with Ryzen. I made this a while back with Substance: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/8Xd3w

How is the temp in there? Thinking of getting the same cooler for 2700x/RTX 2070 combo but unsure it'll handle the cpu
