Description

Hey everyone, Thank you for stopping by to check out my first ever PC build.

Shoutout to https://pcpartpicker.com/user/David.hodge95/ for his wisdom and taking the time to answer all my questions.

Also shoutout to my friend Brad for making sure I didn't screw up any of my connections haha!

Everything building went extremely smooth. Did my best to cable manage, I feel proud of how it looks and performs.

The Ryzen 5 3600X and GTX 1660 Super have run everything max graphics and does not show any signs of slowing down.

While playing any game at max settings (Modern Warfare, Apex Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, etc) the card sits anywhere from 68 degrees to 70 degrees but have not seen it go past.

I have no done any benchmarking yet as I am new to it and am researching the best programs for it.

Overall this was really fun to build and the most challenging thing was figuring out the Corsair Commander Pro, but ended up figuring it out no problem. The case is very well made and fits a 240mm rad in the front (I am running a push/pull setup in the front of the case)

Looks good man. I like it dont stress the comments on what you should or should not do. The ram is overkill but it is so cheap right now why not (rumor has it ram prices are going up soon anyways so good on you for getting it while its hot) not to mention 32 gigs @3200mhz will do you well for many years to come regardless of what task you throw at it. It has plenty of upgrade potential in the future (am4 platform will be good for at least 1 more generation) and 1660 super is more graphics card than anyone "needs". Good job on the build and enjoy it as I have been enjoying mine.

its definitely a very pretty build, and I don’t know your exact needs but I would get something like this instead: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/4g4Kcq . It would perform much better for cheaper, but if you want those peripherals and that Corsair brand name to flex or whatever, that’s fine. But this build would be better in eprformance(albeit much uglier) Still a very nice build!

I own a 2070 super and love the thing. That being said. I wouldn't spent that kind of money on a gpu right now. With 3000 series coming in a couple of months these cards are gonna have to come way down in price to make room for the new ones. A 2080 ti is gonna be a steal in a short while.

Well, I live in Canada so price point at the time was the key. I seriously got such a good deal on all my parts and the prices went up like mad after boxing day (when I purchased) the Ryzen 7 way more than the ryzen 5 and only has more cores which doesnt do anything for me, also the 1660 super was also way better price vs the 2070s etc I know very well I could have skimped on RGB or keyboard etc but screw that I built what I wanted lol

The 3600 is what I meant to put, but thats true if deals are good it could be better.

Is this just for gaming? 32gb is pretty overkill. If you got 16gb, you could've upgraded to a 2060.

The difference in 16gb and 32gb ram was not what stopped me from going higher end card lol. The proces of the cards are retarded in Canada. Even the 1660 super on sale was a little much. It does all the games I've tried maxed graphics and barely pushes 68° under heavy load
