Description

A frosty, cool build with enough light to rival the northern star: polaris has been an idea for the past 3 years and is finally in development. And although this is my first time building a PC, I’m glad that it could become this great of a project. Thanks for the support! -beyondhayashi

Part Reviews

CPU

6 cores and good clocking; CPU cooler holds its own; a Quality CPU for a Good Price. The Ryzen 5 2600 has offered great performance in gaming, streaming, and encoding.

Motherboard

The MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC was hard to acquire but it was well worth the time and money. Solid RGB lighting and sleek carbon fiber made the build look great; Performs great with my 2600 and rx580 8gb and is a well featured B450 board in the <$150 price range.

Memory

Bright, Colorful, and Fast; it handles many Chrome Tabs. Gaming and streaming are effortless and are handled well with 16gb of RAM.

Storage

Offers 500gb of very fast storage space for a good price.

Storage

Holds my projects and games; it's a fast HDD for a decent price.

Video Card

The RX580 8gb Nitro+ can play most modern titles with ease (1080p, 60fps, Medium-Ultra); It pairs extremely well with a Ryzen 5 2600 and 16gb of ram and also has a good-looking backplate and LED Sapphire logo on the side.

Case

It holds my components and has decent airflow (2 included case fans); the P400s is amazing for people wanting a silenced PC and/or great options for cable management.

Power Supply

Overkill for my use, but I got it for $60 and it had a 80+ Gold Power Efficiency. It is fairly silent, only making noise under heavy load. The semi-modular cables made cable-management simple and straight-forward.

Monitor

Great picture quality, features, and clarity for an amazing price.

Nice solid build! Can you add a bit more picture with more lights as some of the pictures I couldn't see well. Also how is your rx580 Sapphire doing and is the AMD software buggy.

The Nitro+ has been a great card from my experience with it and I would recommend it to you if your are looking to buy a GPU under $200. The AMD software wasn’t problematic for me either and I have found it to be beneficial when I use it. Thanks for the comment! -beyondhayashi

I downloaded the performance test on UserBenchmark and let it run until the results generated in a Chrome tab.

Pretty solid. I would recommend it if you are looking for a cheap freesync monitor to play games on or watch movies on.
