Description

This is my first pc build and I made it mostly for gaming, but its also a decent workstation. The reason I decided to use the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G was because on amazon it was $81 and that was a great value for 4 cores, 4 threads. Memory was pretty simple to get, I got the cheapest 2x4 ram from a reputable company. For storage I just had two 2 TB just laying around so I decided to put it to good use. The RX 570 I think is overall a decent card I personally wish I went with a 8 GB model in stead of the 4 GB it can run most of my games of which consist of R6, Tf2, Gmod, etc. Now the Q300L now I know a lot of people complain about the temps this case can give, but I haven't actually ran into any problems even when over clocked (I over clock the CPU to a 3.9 clock). The EVGA 500w there not much to say its a reputable brand and I haven't had any problems. I go windows pro 10 through the whole download windows 7 ultimate then upgrade to windows 10 pro, I had to do this before with the hard drive though, also this was full windows 10 pro, there was no "you need to activate windows". The monitor was just a lucky find in a old office building.

Nice one. I'd just keep an eye on the temps of the CPU. I don't know how hard you've OC'd, but overclocking with a stock cooler is a less than ideal. A better cooler could be your next upgrade. Nice budget build

Actually, the stock coolers that come with AMD CPUs are very good and can handle a surprising amount of overclocking. With the Ryzen 2600 you can overclock it to almost 4.0 Ghz only using the stock cooler and a B450 board.

Personally I think this is a great build but yeah, I would have spent the extra bucks to get the 8GB version of the RX 570. It'll last you a few years. Good build!

Decent build Overclocking with the stock cooler is not a good idea. also not 2 sure why you bought 2, 2tb hard drives would have been better using the money from one and buying an ssd to run windows on maybe, decent build tho mate.

Good build overall. I had that case and I know the difficulty of managing cables with a non-modular psu. For sure though, you could reroute the CPU power through the back of the case and through the top left corner and fix little flaws here and there in terms of cable management. I would though, try to invest in a better air cooler because the temps of the CPU with stock and not overclocked is already pretty hot, so just be wary of that. Definetely go for a fast SSD, you can get a 240gb for cheap right now. Other than that its a solid build!

Good build, but I would get a new cooler because a stock cooler for overclocking isnt the best.

Ok I have looked at this build and I can give you this advice: 1. Get an SSD, they are much much much faster than any harddrive on the market and in your situation you can use your pre existing hard drives as bulk storage for large files and stuff and the SSD for any games and that, I would recommend a 500gb SSD ( around £50) 2. Get a new CPU cooler, an air cooler from the likes of BeQuiet or Cooler Master (if you do you may need to order a mounting bracket for the AM4 socket). If you can splash out a bit more maybe get a 240 or 280 milimetre radiator from Corsair (I recommend the H100i or H115i RGB)

Edit: I didn't notice this was my old PC in my completed builds you will see how it looks now.

Ok thanks but there is one thing I would like to say is one I do have a ssd it's not 500gb it's 128gb but I'm fine with the size. Two Ithis is kinda a rant but I never really understood the point of the i series NXZT has a case is a case it doesn't need to be "smart".
