Description

APEX/PUBG light gaming build on a budget. I was asked to offer better alternative to a pc store's build in same budget or cheaper alternative with same performance level. The differences were: cheap psu, 1x8 gb ram (thanks for leaving free slot, it's great but for now I left the Single Channel's Club :D ), 1050 Ti (very modern choice, especially with GTX 1650 on a battlefront which is cheaper & more powerful lol) and ssd 120 gb. The cpu there was 9100f, which is ok also. I originally planned to expand ssd, replace old nvidia's **** with GTX 1650 and stick-in at least 4 gb ram more. But compared tests, and thought to go red devil side :) I'm not a fan of it, honestly, but amd offers value, so no-brain to use htpc-leveled gpu and 4-core for same $$$. The RAM set to go 2666.16. I don't see any point going your 3000-s on a budget, seriously. Turbo disabled (kick me with tomatoes and eggs), because 0.4 ghz do the thing, but 70 C on load, even stress-test in AIDA is a bit hot (consider the summer, or extremely heated room as I do, for example). Thank You AMD, for putting pancake-sized cooler for 6-core Ryzen 1600. I know back in time when 1600 was just released there was a bigger cooler inside the box, so f... u amd, you did it silently again. And one thing. The psu i chose was Aerocool vx 600 or 650w, some other ram 2400 or 2666 one and Asrock mobo which should be few $ cheaper, but customer wanted as many "right now" as possible so we took what was in local store (not the one who offered... the original build :D)

What can I say. I'm satisfied with my work, hope customer's son too (it's a gift). Case left some old box one. Inside was i3-6100, GTX 960, 1 stick for 8gb of... ddr3 (omg), cheap crap psu with cracling fan (3 years old pc, not bad, huh :D) and crappy old 500gb toshiba hdd which loaded windows same fast as my old Pentium 4 loaded Half-Life 2 back in times which was about 5 mins :D

Now your critics fellows. One buddy told me that mobo is pure **** for "such a monster 6-core cpu", I should've gone for B350 at least in order not to burn the whole thing lol

Part Reviews

Motherboard

A bit modest in tweaking, but what could you ask from A320 chipset? :) Good choice for any 65W cpu.

Memory

2400.15 turned into 2666.16. Hynix chips. Cool!

Storage

Cheapest, but I recommend it only on a very hard budget. Go for UV500 at least if you have anything better than old 2-core pc :D

Storage

One of these is good already in another customer's pc for one year. Hope they last good! :)

Video Card

Keeps 73 C in Unigine Heaven benchmark. Very nice, remember, no single case fan here! :) Metal backplate (shame for you, Gigab*te in budget, better not put any backplate than plastic crap!). Fans don't crackle. Minus 1 star for coil whistle. Why the hell coil whistle exists, I hate it! Is it so hard to fix things up for team of pro engineers? Shame.

Power Supply

RGB fan does it's job - more beautiful than you think. :) Though, don't expect Seasonic quality of power delivery from this. But, I picked it because it was best choice in shop stock, as customer didn't want to wait.

Coil whine is not easily fixable. If you've got a return period, use it, and buy the same card. It happens on every card, and every brand of card, but you can't really hear it on most of them. Manufacturers replace the loud ones because the uninformed will leave one-star reviews, and they can hit low ratings if it doesn't end up fixed. So get an RMA, and you're good! :)

The psu idea was just because customer wanted "next business day build", so we got all stuff what was available at local shop :DDD I choosed Aerocool VX 600 or 650 which was same money but VX should be ok (as based on build I've seen of one guy who had VX-750 lasted easily for 5!!! years with GTX 780 and i7-4770 and moved without the problems for next pc as it was replaced by seasonic lol). Hate the Corsair VS tho for the ****** crackling fans!!!

This is one of the reasons I love the R5 1600, It's cheap so it can be used in RX 560/570 builds, but can also be overclocked to 4GHz and used with a much more powerful graphics card like a GTX 1070 in my case.

Lucky you! I wasn't inspired by mine's r5 2600 and r7 2700, 3700X is crazy better as i see in reviews but i use my beloved blue's 8700 and will replace by second hand i9 years later lol :D

Motherboard should be fine as long as it gets some airflow over it. I would try messing with RAM speed as 2400 is kind of slow for Ryzen but overall not a bad budget build.

2400.15 turned easily to 2666.16. This added speed based on AIDA's mem tests ;)
