Description

This PC was built upon the latest AMD CPU & GPU line while being housed in a fully acrylic case.

I'm running the R5-1400 @ 3.9ghz, RX-580 @ 1.4ghz and memory @ 2933mhz.

I ended up replacing the Patriot memory with Corsair LPX for a higher memory clock.

BIOS for this board is still a little buggy... but it's functional.

I painted my BlackWidow and the top fin of the CPU cooler white with an added decal to give it more of a unique look.

The photo's were taken with an iPhone 4s which is why the quality is potato.

Benchmarks are in the last photo's.

How's the m.2 working out? I really wanna buy an ssd and I only need around a 100 gigs besides the initial windows files for my first build. I really wanna use the same parts as u ( but I wanna go with the 1500x and 8gigs of RAM ) and also have the budget stay beneath 700 bucks. By the way tell me if the case is nice or not.

Another thing, the build I want will be for CS GO, Dota 2, Overwatch, Black Ops III (mods and Zombies) and mainly competitive titles like rainbow six siege and Others. So do u recommend the M.2, assuming I'm only gonna buy CSGO and Overwatch for the first few months? Also, since there is just one M.2 slot, should I go for more space or wait until I get an HDD or an 850 Samsung SSD?

The case looks amazing but it isn't the best for airflow. The R5 chip stays nice and cool with the Contac12 but the RX 580 does get into the 70's and heats the case up. This m.2 drive is the fastest SSD I have used so far, but it's also the 1st NVMe for me and I do really like it. I use the m.2 as my main drive and I have an external 4TB that I keep my games on. The games that I am playing most, I will copy over to the m.2 and run them from there. It's too easy to copy games back and forth so there was no need for me to have a larger m.2 drive. I think you will be ok but if thats your only drive then it could be tedious having to uninstall and download new games whenever you want to play something else. Also about the 1500x, the only advantage it has over the 1400 is the 16mb of l3 cache. There was a video (by Hardware Unboxed I think) that showed the difference in performance between the 1400 and 1500X at the same clock speed. They used an RX 480 and there was next to no performance gain from the 1500X but with a 1080 Ti there was about a 5-7% increase. So if you want to save a few more dollars, you could go with the 1400 and overclock it like mine. I can help you with a partlist if you want, feel free to message me.

M.2 is not neccessary for those titles and honestly just go for the 1400 and OC it no point in going for 1500X I OCed my 1400 with the stock cooler at 3.8 works like a charm at 1.2750V check it out

Hey, a mATX board with the x16 at slot 2! Nice; I can't figure out why so many have it at slot 1.

I agree! I hate having the GPU sit right on top of the CPU .

I understand your point re: trace length, but is that really significant in the case of PCIe since it doesn't sync with an external clock (I think)? This particular board has a traditional mATX 4-slot width; x1, x16, blank and x1, so it would seem that x16 in slot 2 isn't too much of an issue.

Not sure what you mean about power, though. All devices get their power from the board.

so love the case, been looking at geeks website and id love to use one, but from your experience does the acrylic scratch much at all? also the website shows the side panel on the left side not the right like it is on your images, do you know whats up with this?

I too loved the case and plan to do another build in it again soon. I have since sold this PC and don't have it anymore but I didn't notice the case scratching. The reason it looks like it's swapped is because this case was meant to be inverted but I didn't really like it that way so I just switched the top & bottom panels around and viola! Now it sits this way :) I liked it much better with PSU on top instead of bottom.
