Yes I could build for you but I dont offer any kind of warranty on the parts except for the manufacturer warranty. Plus I never charge for my time to put together the system.

The Corsair fans come with a light Node and a 6 fan hub if you get the 3 pack. You need the Node and the hub to run the RGB on the fans. The Corsair fans have a proprietary connector and cant use the motherboard connectors but instead they use a USB 2.0 port on the motherboard to control the LEDs. As for FPS im not really sure. I don't test a lot of games before I sell my systems. But I do run a 1hr stress test on the CPU and GPU to make sure they are stable. I also will run User Benchmark and a couple of others. The kids who bought the system say its fast and runs great.

Nothing is left from the OG build. The only part I still have and use daily from the OG is the PSU. I put the PSU in my NAS when I built it and built a system using the rest of the parts and sold it.

Well, Im not a armature PC builder and I love the Fractal Design cases. I have now built about 10 systems using them. As for time if I rush built the rig I could do it in a couple of hours but I don't rush it. So I spent about 4hrs or so tinkering with it.

No bottle neck with the 16gb but the Customer does gaming, video and photo editing. So he requested the 32gb. For strait gaming and basic daily needs the 16 is great but he plans on doing a lot of tasks so the 32gb will help.

That's how I have always tried to build computers over the years. I always buy the best motherboard as I can. The X570 is great but the costs are a bit high still. The B450 and X470 boards are great but you wont get Gen 4 PCIE support. But if you opt for the X570 with the 2700X you still wont have support for Gen PCIE.

I have never test it but from what I have seen and read the 2700X might bottleneck the 2080 a little depending on setting and what game you are playing. But the 2070 should be fine. The price point of the 2700X right now is hard to beat but the 3600 does have a slight performance increase.

Nope, none needed for the 2700X. But would be needed if you want with the 3000 series.

It's for mainly gaming but also a college student. He wanted to be able to game and stream a little along with school work. Plus when I got the RAM it was a open box from MicroCenter and it was cheap.

Couple of pics had a GTX 1660 I was using for test while I waited for the RTX 2080 to show.

According to AMD, the Maximum Operating Temperature for your Ryzen CPU is 95 Degrees Centigrade and According to Nvidia the RTX 2080 has a maximum GPU temperature of 88C. So the numbers are well with in the limits.

Not hard at all. Just like installing the rest.

Yes, exhaust...only reason I did it was for the Look of the system. Not a single fan manufacture makes a reverse flow fan. But for heat issues it might not be the best but those two are not really needed.

It was a open box card from MicroCenter and it was near $600 when I bought it.

Yes I know the 2700 and 2700x is cheaper but the 3600 will out perform the them both and when I bought the 3600 it was on sell for about $20 more than the 2700X. Plus with the X570 and having a Zen+ CPU you lose the gen 4 PCIE support.

I could do a bios flash but since it a customer build and if it comes back I don't want to mess with RMA issues.

On that system the CPU got about 75c max under a 30min stress test if I remember correctly and the GPU got about 70c. But I did not write down the numbers so my memory but be off a little.

Hmm, well go to technical school learn a trade and work hard. After 23 years on the job and the system has been a 2.5year project. I have upgraded and rebuilt the system 4 times now....

The customer picked up the system before I could run testing but from where I have seen at 1080p max settings the 5700 does about 125fps. About the same as a 2060super

I have used many of the wraith coolers. Back when the 2000 series came out the 1st gen CPUs prices dropped. I was able to get 1700X chips for $130 but no coolers. So I used the extra Wraith coolers.

I had planned on using a 1660super instead of the 5700 but I was able to get a few parts with good rebates which allowed me to get the 5700 instead. The added performance of the 5700 will be great for my friends son for his 1st gaming PC.

No, all the fans are on exhaust and draw air through the large screen from the bottom of the case. I had the 2 140mm fan in the front set as intake before but I did not want the fan hub bracing showing on the rebuild.

Well I wanted to go all Corsair on my lighting and the my other 2080 was Gigabyte 2080 Waterforce card with the custom waterblock from Gigabyte. So I needed a different card and did not want to spend the extra on the 2080ti.

No problems so far but I don't run the system a lot. I did stress testing on the system and ran the CPU at 100% load for about 2 weeks with zero issues....

Yes I had to update the bios for the 3700X to work, but the new boards may have the new bios already. If not you need a older gen CPU and can download and follow the instructions on ASUS site.

For what ever I need it for. I do a little bit of mining and use it test overclock settings for GPUs and the open frame I have allows me to put it under a cabinet and not take up much workbench space.

Well I built it for a kid who was on a tight budget and at the time the 2400mhz kit was on sale. It was quit a bit cheaper than any other kit. I know the Ryzen CPUs do better with faster memory but in most tests it's only a few points. Also the Asrock boards I have used tend to not be stable with memory above about 2666. I have built many systems and have used 5 or 6 Asrock B450 and X470 boards. The result has always been the same, I buy 3200mhz RAM and above 2666mhz the system is unstable. Now I have used Asus boards and have had no trouble hitting 3200mhz. I really like the bang for the buck of AsRock boards but the memory issue is frustrating.

I have not messed with any undervolting but I only use it for streaming. I have ran stress tests on the system and the max wattage it uses is about 125w but when its streaming only running about 80w and CPU gets to about 60c max. Normally runs about 55c.

I have used a lot of the Coolermaster fans over the last couple of years and there not to bad. I have had a couple of 120s that where louder than the others but where I can I use the 140s to help with noise. For my system I had thought about using the LL120s and 140s mainly because of the better RGB control but just could not spend the $250 on fans but now I kind of wished I did. Just for the looks and really the cooling.

Thanks, Yes I like the K55 but I love my K95 with brown switches. I have a K70 also with reds but its on my other system. The K55 I only use on the work bench.
