Description

Sort of an upgrade from my previous build, most of the parts I've used were bought in the US during my month long stay for work. Case was bought in Philippines and the rest were from the previous build.

I was going for a Ryzen 5 1600 for my CPU, however team blue got into me and made the switch from Red to Blue. I've watched a lot of Ryzen 5 1600 vs Intel i5 8400 comparison and reviews, it seems that in gaming 6-core 12-threads of Ryzen wasn't fully optimized yet resulting to loss in FPS. Although Intel build was quite expensive from AMD's offering, I'm quite happy with the results from the FPS I get from my games.

For the GPU, I bought the EVGA Bundle that includes a GTX 1070Ti FTW2, 240 CLC and a Power Link cost me around $720 + Tax and Shipping. I was going for the GTX 1080 when I made up my mind, it was already out of stock. Good thing I decided to purchase the 1070Ti bundle, after a week everything was sold out.

For the storage, I've always wanted to try M.2 SSD so I got one for myself. WD Black M.2 NVME SSD was my choice, I've watched couple of reviews against its competitors and for its price, its good deal imo.

So maybe in the future might as well purchase i7 to be back in the overclocking game and try delidding it.

It was a bitter sweet experience building this rig and hope you enjoy it.

What software powers the RGB of the GPU?

Im using the LED Sync by EVGA. But it's kinda bugging so I turn off the EVGA Precision OC App for my 1070Ti and use only the EVGA Flow Control instead. Since I use MSI Afterburner for OC GPU.

Awesome build !!! I absolutely love the red and black color scheme. The corsair fans with the red trim fit perfectly with the other red highlights. How are your CPU temps with the radiator located in the front of the case?

Also we need more pictures..........

CPU Remains below 40-45 Degrees Celsius at load. I'm intrigued with NZXT S340 Elite air flow given its tempered glass side, it still managed to gave me stable temps for my components.
