Description

This build cost me around $1500 and has treated me well. I used some of my old parts from my previous FX8320 build, such as the hard drive (1TB) and GPU as there was nothing wrong with them. This computer is able to run anything I throw it, from poorly optimized games to Ultra settings on highly optimized games.

Part Reviews

Memory

Excellent RAM, does what it's supposed it. It's latency is a little higher than some other options but is the cheapest 3466MHz RAM and has been for a while. I bought 16GB for $200, since it's dropped to $150. I plan on buying another 16GB once I get the money. This RAM is great for a Ryzen setup as they are known to perform better with higher clocked RAM. Best part the upcoming Ryzen 3000 series will have even better performance with this RAM. Great deal, just make sure your motherboard can handle it's power. Beware, edges are a bit sharp.

Case Fan

This fan is really disappointing, it says 95CFM but the fan doesn't seem to push that much air. When it pushes air, it seems to do so in a funnel shape, this may be decent as a regular case fan, but not for a radiator, especially in push-pull config.

Compared to my EVGA 400-HY-FX13-KR 113.5CFM 140mm fans I can really tell the difference. These fans work ok, build quality is nice too, but they do not give out 95 CFM.

Case Fan

These are some awesome fans, especially for the price (<$10 at time of review). Sadly the included screws do not actually screw into the fan itself, so if you hang it on the top of your computer, it will fall. But if you have some beefy screws laying around, you can make it work.

These fans move a lot of air even at 50%, to keep your sanity when it comes to noise, I suggest not clocking these fans anything over 50% unless needed.

Case Fan

Great fans, they have high static pressure, great for push-pull configuration in my radiator. Even at full load these fans are quite tolerable, they aren't high pitched but rather a gushing sound when pushed to their limit. The two I got managed to cool my Ryzen 7 2700x another 20C versus the CoolMaster JetFlo.

de_dust please clean that thing out

I did, I'm not wiping the entire thing down with alcohol because it's not aesthetically pleasing though.

Lots of dust is bad for temps and airflow, not just for looks.

You must be seeing crap, that dust does nothing for bad airflow/temps. I'm running 28C on idle and no more than 65C under full load.
