Description

My first gaming rig in 10 years, it requires a sacrifice of time, sweat and blood to achieve this XD. Been saving my money for 2 years to finally be able to build this rig, and it feels so rewarding :)

Part Reviews

CPU

Great chip, bought it back in 2018 when it still cost me $185 in my place. Currently running at stock speed, the highest overclock it can achieved with stock cooler is 3.7 Ghz at 1.3v, I know I can push it further but temperature is the limit since I didn't have any aftermarket cooler, maybe soon :)

Motherboard

Great board, rock solid. Awarded as the best all rounder B450 motherboard by Hardware Unboxed and I feel honored to own one XD

Memory

I like the look of this RAM, the full length of the heatsink are covered by led, but the dissapointment I can only run this RAM at 2400 Mhz, above that and I will get random CTDs and BSODs. I don't know what's wrong, maybe it has something to do with first Ryzen Memory Compatibility.

Storage

Great SSD, although it cost me $90 at the time a purchased it back in early 2018.

Storage

Need more HDD for my storage so I picked this one up instead of purchasing another 1TB blue WDC.

Storage

Who wouldn't know this particular HDD? it's not great but it get the job done.

Video Card

I LOVE this card, love the look, the design, it's so huge I almost can't put the temper glass on because the PCIE cable connector popping out of the line XD, but eventually I can manage to put it back on. Actually at first I want to grab a RTX 2070 Super Gaming X Trio since there is a very nice deal on that card in a particular local reseller, but I got limited by the Power Supply since it only has 550W.

Case

Have a lil regret buying this case, wish I know that the airflow are so terribly bad. I need to leave the front panel off to get decent airflow for the system.

Power Supply

The first part that I purchased, back in late 2017, it's not great but it get the job done

Monitor

Cheapest Ultrawide 1080p monitor I could find in my place, love the widescreen it is very useful for me.
