Description

Update: -Upgraded to 3700X -Vengeance RGB became unsupported with the latest 3rd Gen BIOS update. Had to change RAM. - Front Rad is now mounted on top.

This PC was built with both gaming, productivity, and aesthetics in mind. Sure Intel is better in single thread performance, but nothing beats 8 cores, 16 threads for Premiere Pro, After Effects, Cinema 4D, Maya, and much more applications I use daily (especially after overclocking it ;) ). I brought over a few parts from my last build (Hyper Beast 2.0). Even with that, this thing runs like a beast.

RGB lights are up. Only thing wrong are the front SP120s in the front which flicker when connected to the LNP. Hope Corsair will send in 3 new ones. Also I plan to paint the red parts of my gpu white or grey to improve my color scheme.

Successfully overclocked to 3.9mhz. And trying to push for 4.0

Note: M.2 SSD used was actually a Crucial 525gb not Western Digital

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Works very well, first one they shipped broke after a day due to an apparently common problem. I was sent a new one and 3 days in, it's still working. Keeps my PC nice and cooled after it was overclocked to 3.9 GHz.

Idle Temp Max: 40 C

Load Max Temp: 63 C

Motherboard

Beautiful, gorgeous, powerful. Words can not describe how amazing this motherboard is especially for overclocking. Even has great lighting effects that goes with my build's theme.

Memory

RAM is Ram sure...But these are RGB!!!

Storage

Great as pure usual. Can't go wrong with these.

Video Card

I give them the same review as last time, except that now my build is RGB and MSI remove color shift and rainbow wave effects from their software. Ruins my color scheme except when they're off.

Case

Is there anything above Godly? No? Well this thing is above Godly. Beautiful tempered glass side and front panel to display the light show that is my PC. Comes with three front mounted fans that run pretty quiet. Enough room for anything ecept cable management. That Is my only complaint, not that much room for it, but enough to be able to close ur cover.

Power Supply

Nice, Quiet, Efficient, and Powerful. Would recommend this to anyone.

Nice build, I like the layout. Also, love seeing multi-GPU setups along with some Ryzen goodness. I love my R7 1700X, and I have a feeling you're in the same boat on that one.

Images not so good for an otherwise incredible build with Crossfire! 1+

Why did you go with the RX 480 instead of RX 580? I don't know the differences between these cards and how they can be compared with Nvidia's high-end cards, but as long as it does its job.

probably difference in what was available vs cost, or could be a time thing. there arent massive differences between the cards, mostly efficiency and a bit more speed

the real question is why use Xfire 480s when you could spend that money on a 1080 and have a bit leftover. Like, if you're mining sure, but investing etherium rigs isn't worth it anymore since you won't be able to pay off the GPUs before it crashes and then you're stuck with 2 480s instead of one better card.

The 1080's were much more expensive at the time of purchasing one 480. Weeks later it was cheaper, but instead of buy a new card and ruining my budget for the build I decided to get a second 480. And the GPU's are modern and stable enough not to crash and considering it is on even playing fields with the 1070 in gaming crossfire, I don't personally think I need to worry. Heck in the future I might upgrade to two 1080's and, if available, 1090's

I think you mean 1180.

i don't think the 1090 is going to be a thing, though the pascal refresh that's problably coming up soon seems like the way to go, kinda like how amd did the polaris refresh and the 580 is a reworked version of the 480 so i would be looking for a 1180 or 1280 or 2080 or whatever they decide to call it, or maybe a xx80ti

The RX580 wasn't out at the time I purchased these cards. And even tho the 580 is much more stable. The 480's were out long before talk of a more stable version (580's). But two 480's compare to a 1070 in gaming benchmarks. And Only beats a 1080 in a few games when overclocked

Also yea, I'll have to retake the photos with my Canon camera rather than my phone since the lights throw off the focus.
