(I do not have any pictures of me building it, or the parts, even though I still have the boxes because I build it Christmas 2015. I just didn't know about Sharing builds until now)
This machine started off as being just an improvement over my old gaming Laptop. However, I got really into it and used it for so many things that I had to upgrade it to what is it now.
I use this system for a very wide range of things. They include:
Editing on Première Pro (Able to live preview at Full HD)
Recording 1080p 60fps YouTube videos
and Gaming obviously.
If you are wondering what games I run and at what settings, I will tell you. (My monitors never go higher than 60, so I can only tell you their average fps, or if they are always at 60fps it means they could potentially go higher)
GTA V - Very High (53 fps average)
Dirty Bomb - Ultra (60fps constant)
Bioshock Infinite - Ultra (60fps constant)
HITMAN - Very High (60fps constant)
Tomb Raider - Ultra (60fps constant)
Far Cry 4 - Ultra (60fps constant)
Assassins Creed Syndicate - High (57fps average)
and my favourite PAYDAY 2 - Very High (60fps constant)
It just goes to say that this PC runs very well for the price of its main components. If you remove all of the peripherals, it only comes to £991 ($1243), which isn't bad if you think about it. The only problem with it is that it did take a lot of tinkering around until a got with a config that works because of the movement of hot air onto other components, which I wanted to minimise. It also needs really good airflow and a cold area to be in. Otherwise, it cools no better than other PC's, and it's probably louder due to the Noctua fans which are for the heat-sink. If you have a cold area, put it in there, and it will be extremely cool and with minimal noise depending on your fan curve.
(Just a side note, don't buy all of the peripherals in the bottom, they are purely for me. They are used for my editing, recording and gaming. If you want to, fine as they are good components for a gaming system especially if you make Gaming videos on YouTube. However they are not necessary if you are not too serious about gaming or editing or whatever DON'T BUY THEM) If you want suggestions on peripherals for your system, comment and I will try to respond if I see your comment.
Only used it for a short while, but it works so much better than my old Piledriver processor. Its cooler and is far better for multitasking which I never used to be able to do. With the Ryzen...now I can
Cools amazingly, I did have to swap the fans but they are not the main part. When paired with new fans and my fan curve, kept my CPU always under 50
Better than the Sapphire version, and better than my old card. Keeps itself cool with my fan curve and never ceases to amaze me
Nothing wrong with it...ever. I've had it for 3 years now and it works as well as when I first got it. Great Moniter
Simple, but efficient, and just enough buttons to suit me, but not too many as to be stupid
Sound is great, mic is great for Skype and what not. Only issue are that it cant overcharge, or it starts to decrease the battery life. But it is wireless so I can use it from basically anywhere in the house with few to no connection problems
Just a great little sound system, never caused problem, never not worked and plenty of bass. All round great speaker set
