Description

My goal with this build was just an all around well performing gaming PC. An Overclock on the GPU definitely yielded pretty good results. I'm happy with every part of this build except the motherboard. It's of good quality, looks very nice but there is zero overclocking support in the BIOS. I had to use Ryzen Master for my OC but even then I still only got the 4.1ghz stable. I don't have screenshots but she scored 1879 in Cinebench multi-core and 3628 in Novabench. Haven't done any others yet. Even still It performs exceptionally well and I'm very happy with it. One note I have for all: just because the backside wiring isn't see doesn't mean it doesn't have to be clean! Cable management people! Lol. Also the RGB fans came from LEDDess on Amazon but they didn't have an option for it on here. They're extremely nice quality fans and run decently quiet. My favorite part is they have their own controller which made the wiring that much cleaner. Definitely recommend!!

No problem dude. Your PC is inspiring to me, I am building mine and the cable management is terrible. Its a lot of fun to build a machine!

Much appreciated!! I had a blast building this!! But it's never to late to make it better!! How I do it is I sit down, have all the cables I'm going to use kind of hanging out of the case and add them in, one by one. I try to just look around the rear of the case to figure out where I want to run them. Then I'll kind of do a mock up where I put them in place before I tie it all down to make sure the clearances are good etc etc. If it's good, from there I'll get it all put into place! There were some after I got it all situated that I noticed could be ran another way so I'd cut the Zip ties and re run it. It was tedious but man, I couldn't be happier with the results. Good luck on yours!! You got this!!

Your motherboard does have overclocking support in the BIOS. Make sure you are looking in the "Advanced" settings, which are usually accessed by pressing F7 or just clicking on a tab at the top of the main BIOS page.

I should've rephrased. It's there, but it may as well not be. Lol. Literally can't get a stable OC of any kind through BIOS with this board, I've tried everything.

That sucks, I knew Gigabyte BIOS's aren't the best, but that's kinda embarrassing.

For sure! Big disappointment to me. But that aside everything else with the board is nice!

Well you can always just use Ryzen Master, its the same thing just easier to use lel

Just wondering, you have a ML240L in your part list but a different cooler in your build. Was that just because the cooler you have wasn't on PCpartpicker? Also, I love the cable management, but please flip the pump rotation.

  • 11 months ago
  • 1 point

No it's the ML240L, at least that's what the box says. Lol. I just didn't use the fans that came with it. But sadly I can't flip it. The hoses are too stiff for me to be comfortable bending them that way. It being upside down bothers me too, believe me. Lol. And thanks! I definitely try my best to keep things clean!

Your prob thinking of the old version I think they re did it and now it has a box instead of a circle on the processor (I have the circle version and its also the ML240L)

+1 Cable Management is A+!!

I'm doing a build in this case soon. Any tips!?

  • 11 months ago

The only tip I have is go for it! This was my first PC build and this case was just so so easy to build in. I quite honestly can literally only think of one complaint. The 3.5" HDD Bay isn't toolless so you have to unscrew the cage from the bottom of the case, screw in your HDD and try to line up the holes on the bottom to screw it back in. Other than that it was wicked easy building in this case! Can't believe this quality case with its features is only $70!!

Maybe 70 American lol. Not Canadian. But thank you for the tips! I didn't know that about the 3.5" drives. Thanks!

Gigabyte really messed up with the VRM quality on their x470 boards. I hope you don't suffer from bad VRM temps if you OC

No Issues to report yet but then again I haven't really pushed it that hard either. I hope it does me good! Should've sprung for the Asus. Lol.

  • 11 months ago

Thats great! Asus really only had one option for a good board which is the $260 crosshair hero. Very overpriced so I can't see most people paying that much for it. I'm very jealous over your cable management. I'm still debating if I should go that hard for my build.

I looked at it as I'm not gonna be able to spend this kind of money on a PC again for a very long time so I may as well go all out on this one!

That cable management is amazng! How is cable management in the h500? I want to get it someday, but I read mixed reviews.

  • 11 months ago

The cable management I felt was pretty good, but there was a couple spots where I wished they would have had more time down spots, I had to get a little creative with routing some of it due to there not being tie downs in some areas. I still thought it was pretty easy and the case is so awesome I'd totally be willing to compromise and spend a little extra time with cable management if I had to build it again.

You can definitely make it happen! Just take your time with it and you'll be golden! I spent about 2 hours just on the back, looking at it, trying to decide where I wanted things to run. There was several time where I had ran a wire, zipped it in place and then realized later on It would look cleaner another way so I'd cut the cable tie and re route it. It was tedious for sure, but I'm definitely happy I told my time with it! Good luck with your build!!!

Is this case cool enough for that 2080? Also do you think I can fit an EVGA 1000w platinum supernova P2 PSU? I have one left over from my mining rig..

  • 11 months ago
  • 1 point

I will say, the Corsair 650 only has maybe 3-4" inches from the drive bay so I'd definitely check the dimensions of your PSU first. But the 2080 stays nice and cool. I wouldn't call myself a "hardcore" gamer but with Overwatch max everything at 4k it didn't get above 57c after about a 2 hour gaming session.

Did you play with Gsync and if so did that help with the below 60 fps?

  • 11 months ago

I don't have a Gsync monitor sadly, but If i'm being honest I haven't played any titles that have dropped below 60 FPS yet. lol

I was wondering how you like those fans? Are they good quality? I'm seriously considering them for my next build but buying no-name products off Amazon makes me nervous.

  • 11 months ago
  • 1 point

I actually love them. They're not super noisy at all, they look fantastic too. I took the stickers off the middle of the fans simply because I wanted a cleaner look. They also feel like much better quality than I was ever expecting for the price. The only downside is you wont be able to adjust the fan speed since they plug into their own fan controller and they aren't standard fan plugs so you couldn't plug them in to a normal fan socket. That personally doesn't bother me though since they aren't loud to begin with and they have no problem keeping things cool.

How are the temps going? Im thinking on doing a pretty similar build with that RTX 2080 and case, but Im not very confident on how it will go since the GPU is pretty near the radiator and I dont like it so much.

The 2080 stays nice and cool. I wouldn't call myself a "hardcore" gamer by any means but with Overwatch max everything at 4k it didn't get above 57c after about a 2 hour gaming session.

Good cable management, but I am surprised no one has been concerned about that GPU sag... pre-built slide for the dust...
