Rgb fusion should detect the ram like noxerx said. It's all software for rgb control unfortunately.

Stock cooler works just fine. However if you're looking for some a bit beefier and quiet, Noctua air coolers are absolutely phenomenal, as well as most companies aios. Especially with people reviewing products like they do.

Rx 580 8 GB - > 1660 super - > 5700/5700 xt - > 2070/2080 super in my opinion. I'm sure people would disagree, but really these are the only options I consider.

Yeah I would not drop below 1080p/1920x1080 personally. As far as size, totally your call. I think the 27s are perfect. If you're looking for ultra wide you would need to push more for pretend 4k with a beefier card. (3440x1440) play around with your budget and check out some graphics card comparisons for 1080p gaming. $100 for almost 100+ fps med to high, hard to beat. If you're looking at 1440p that's when other options and a larger budget should be considered.

I'd say in the 5-750 range you can get a pretty solid 1080p system. Rx580s used are around $100. The 2600/2600x I'm sure will drop in price around Christmas. $100 msi gaming plus matx or the tomahawk, phanteks 350x for $70, some 3200 c16 memory, a 500 GB to 1 TB m.2 for $60-100, and a modular/semi psu for $60. You're golden. A 1080p 100-144hz monitor is not included although you can snag them for $2-300 for an Asus or BenQ, then upgrade the gpu down the line to a 1660 super and you're set for awhile.

Honest and truly I wish I was rich, to give every PC gamer the hardware games are meant to be played at. People wouldn't know what to do. I'm fortunate enough to have the job that I have, can purchase the stuff I own, and enjoy a huge passion of mine. An addiction at this point, traded one for another and I have no regrets. This one's a bit healthier and doesn't effect my health and quality of life. When my wife played my rig for the first time, had her play a ps4 and a ps4 pro, on a 4k TV. Had her sit at my desk with my 2k 165 hz, she was blown away. Not bragging by any means, but the reaction from someone who isn't an enthusiast like myself, that says it all. No hate for consoles, Intel, AMD, etc. Consumers getting enjoyment out of the products should be every companies goal. Sounds corny, but it's true. Relaunching my channel with some monster builds and I hope to pick up a following.

Idk why the ram prices were so high at $349 a kit. Was not even close to that when I purchased it. Was around $230, under $500 for both.

I thought I hated rgb, but I don't hate it actually... Not at all. I'm just kinda over the typical lighting. This neon strip from phanteks looks great whether it's hidden or exposed. Unfortunately with this case layout it didn't work how I wanted, so I used it on the front side like you see in the photos. The purple was along the back but with all the dips, beauty panels, and different slopes it just didn't sit right.

  1. Which is odd because my Pro Wifi was a 14 phase and I didn't get near the same voltages as I am now. My chip was decent... But this board makes it look golden.

Edit: Especially with buildzoids analysis on Gigabyte boards.

Appreciate it. 16mm OD - Just distilled water. Keeping the tubing clean is key, and I'm awful at not scratching it because petg scratches on practically anything. Always clean it up before putting it in, and after.

Actually solid. The gigabyte heatsinks seem to do their job. After using the z390 Master, I gave them another shot when I picked up the 3600 originally. It's on the Aqua now, but they were always in range of the cpu.

NVMe drive is directly connected to your motherboard and runs off your m.2 slot utilizing pcie. Your standard SSD through sata runs anywhere from 450-550 MBps read/write. You see as high as 3500 on standard NVMe drives, and 5000 MBps on gen4. In other words, insanely fast storage, near 10x the speed of your standard HDD, and now SSDs with gen4. Now there's also two different types of NVMe drives, as there is also NVMe sata. Uses a different key layout and isn't as fast (key meaning the connection point on the drive, where it connects to your motherboard.)

Soft tubing. :) ran out of tubing which ate up some extra fittings improvising. When the new tubing gets here I'll be replacing it.

Started off as a basic, "basic", I'd say mid-top tier amd build. Wanted to hop on the Zen2 train so I started with the cpu on an impulse buy at bestbuy one day. Planned on grabbing some new headphones temporarily... Didn't have a tomahawk in stock so I came home and started looking for boards. Even though I knew I wasn't going to utilize Gen4 storage right away, I would at some point down the line, and also I make that initial investment as I feel at some point it pays off. Then it just kind of took off from there... I have a 9900k and a 9940x, so this wasn't even necessary, but I did and just kept going lol.

There's a long description in one of the posts somewhere. Build was never supposed to even be like this, once I bought the aqua I just wanted to sit on what I had until I literally had everything. Now a 3900x, new blocks, fittings, pumps, res, fans, even some hardware from other builds I have around and it became my main rig. 9940x... Found a spiderweb in it the other day with a ******* spider.

Sir, I applaud you. A modest, reasonable first build. Solid man. Only recommendation is pick up an NVMe drive at some point. You have x570, gen4 is coming down in price too, but it doesn't even necessarily need it unless you just want to utilize new tech. Other than that, excellent choices. If you want to stay air-cooled, check out Noctua air coolers. They nearly compete with AIOs anymore. If you want to check out AIOs (all in one water coolers) my recommendation just from experience, corsair, fractal and nzxt. Fractal being my favorite for the blackout look.

It's better than nothing, but at the price just add an rx 580/590 for 1080p gaming. I would also swap that 2200g for the 2600 for additional $20-30. 2200g is no slouch, and great if you're on a real tight budget as it'll get you into games. But for an additional $100-150 you can crank some frames out easily. There's never been a better time to build than now. I'd also can that disk drive. Makes up for difference on cpu pricing.

Tried explaining this to some ignorant dipshit for years. Finally listened to me. People get so caught up in colors you'll get sick of in a week, set a static and be done with it. Will always choose performance over RGB.

Solid build. Did something similar for a buddy. Opted for the 3600 on a B450, with an rx 580 instead. He's getting it tomorrow and has no idea it's coming. He's upgrading from a 2600 non-K, and a GTX 760.

Enjoy man! Got a good upgrade path too, so you can upgrade whenever you feel it's necessary.

  • 1 month ago

It was for my test bench, ended up selling the bench (Haf XB) to a buddy for a budget build I did for him. Rather than buying another cpu block I threw it in. Absolutely love this AIO. If I was sticking with this board I would add it to the loop, or honestly just an S36 as - /+ 30-40C on the gpu is nice. Adding a cpu to the loop would bring it up around 50ish, as well as some increased cpu temps as this case doesn't have the best rad support.

Edit: Now that I think about it, the Heatkiller IV has a $20 conversion kit. EK might as well. But then it's tubing, a bigger rad, etc.

It's what I was running in my x299 build. It was this or high latency 3600. See a decent fps increase as I can run 14-16-16-32 on this kit opposed to a 19-20-20-40. I'll be picking up a 32GB kit for the aqua. I'm not sure who I'm going with yet. I know in real world applications and lesser workloads it's not even noticeable. Just my ego being fed at this point with high end hardware as I couldn't afford it for the longest time.

Definitely upgrade that PSU and light that on fire before it destroys your computer. Like the guy said below, above all else never cheap out on the PSU just because it's responsible for powering your entire system. Everything connected to it has a chance to fry. Regardless of the tech inside, it's your pride and joy and I would hate to see something happen to it. Even seasonic a 500w is like $62 on Amazon, or the evga 550w bronze, corsair 450-550w. Believe it or not, it's all you would need. Take it in consideration, otherwise great little build.

Edit - I see the PSU was a gift. I get it, had to save money everywhere for the budget, but run to a BB and get one.

The cable management is fantastic. Solid build quality. I just wish they made it so you could put a 360/fans up top under the shroud. All they had to do was raise it a few mms. I think, don't quote me on this, there's 200mm fans that MAY fit up there with the bracket removed? Haven't tried it. May be the standard h500 though. If you search them on Amazon you'll see what I'm talking about. All around a great case, wish watercooling support was better though as I'll have to upgrade the case with the aqua.

Great build. Love the color scheme. I usually do something very similar with any rgb in my builds.

Same thing here with the GPU. Now I'm in a spot where, do I buy the same 2080 ti for nvlink, or buy two new ones and run this one solo.

Also have a 2080 XC Ultra, thought about running nvlink there instead and keep the 2080 Ti solo and saving some money. Idk yet. Strix card doesn't over clock worth a ****. For some reason I got the most garbage A-chip out there. Even with a different bios with the 1000w limit I can't push over +60 on the core, or 2010. Memory's fine.

I would definitely recommend slapping an AIO or a Noctua on there.

Are you overclocked at all? My 9940x runs HOT with two 360mm rads.

Did something real similar for a great friend of mine that didn't have the money to get a rig. Scavenged parts from some stuff I had lying around, had the 2500 and mobo, was able to piece together a system with a 760 and he's still playing on it to this day. We're in talks now of building him a last gen ryzen system. He can finally purchase one.

Nothings more satisfying to me than giving someone a rig. Especially someone who enjoys it

Thanks man!

Airflow I'm still playing with. Believe it or not I'm seeing how one exhaust with a 140 on the lower backside will work with buildup. I'm running all SP120's, aside from there, I have an ML140.

I used an AIO for the longest time. Temps are relatively competitive, you can squeeze a few more degrees out of the custom loops, but all in all its pretty similar. If your case can fit it, I've heard great things about the Fractal S36, as well was the Kraken x72.

However, EK just came out with a new line of products that are using aluminum blocks. It's really affordable, and can add a custom loop to just about anything. You just can't upgrade to standard copper/nickel products. You don't ever want to mix metals. The 240G was one I was looking at before this, which is all soft tubing. Rigid tubing can be a pain in the ***. I messed up going with 12/16 for my first build. I would recommend staying with 10/12.

I'd be happy to answer any questions for you, it's pretty limited on current information for water cooling (at least that's what I found when doing my research.) Everything is a little dated and there's been new products that have come out since then. If you haven't seen any of his videos, check out Jayztwocents. All kinds of videos on Youtube about it.

Working on getting a channel up and going myself, its finding the time, and quiet space to record a video without my daughters carrying on in the background.

Yessir. I lapped this one. I haven't delidded yet, which I'm thinking about doing. Just $500 down the drain if you mess up makes me nervous haha.

1.38V, it's running hot. I use it for benchmark scores :D

If I had a recommendation to anyone, I'd say sit at 5. It's more than enough, and that's what I run regularly.

I bought new paste because what comes on the cooler is garbage, anyone will say that. Gamer's Nexus, Jayz, etc. The corsair NVMe m.2, because it's faster than a standard SSD? The asus DVD writer is 7 years old. Its my original drive. I have a PS4 Pro, on top of numerous Blueray devices along with larger TV's than my 27" monitor. The keyboard, I think I looked at the k95, if I'm not mistake it just had the additional macro keys which I do not use. I was just wanted an RGB mechanical with media controls. It still has cherry switches and works flawlessly.
