Build

My first gamer

by WalkerMC

Description

This is my first pc, I play a couple more intense games like just cause 3, only at 1080p but I hope to get 144hz monitor soon. On a side note, which is better, 144 hz or 1440p?

I had originally went with a 2TB HDD, to accompany the SSD, but decided it was worth it since the SSD I got was only 60 bucks for 480 gigs. So I decided it was worth the extra dough for those crazy speeds, I have never had an SSD before.

The case looks kind of ugly in the pictures but it really isn't in real life.

I OC'ed the Ryzen 5 to about 4.05 GHz, and dang boy that's snappy. I really recommend Ryzen Master by AMD, it lets you overclock the frequency the voltage, the ram and its timing with a built-in stress tester and profiles. All without turning off your PC.

I ran it through UserBenchmark with everything OC'ed as high as stable could be and these were the results.

Edit: I posted a picture of the inside.

P.S. I got a lot of parts used, my graphics card was 240 bucks, so the actual price of the build was like 720 bucks.

Holy cow. All that power for $720? Great job.

Thumbs up.

Got more pictures? How about a shot of the inside with the panel off?

I'll take a pic and post it tomorrow. I don't have access to my pc today.

Looking forward to it.

I posted the picture about 2 hours ago, come take a look.

That's really good cable management. Very clean.

Looks great. Thanks for adding the "money shot".

That's what I was going for, thank you.

Get 144hz it's better than 1440p 60hz or 75hz

This is all relative. If he's playing CSGO or something where he's trying to be competitive, then he should go with a 144 hz monitor. However, if he wants the G R A P H I C S then he should definitely go with a 1440p monitor. Make sure you give your reasons why he should do something.

I really like the smoothness of 60fps but I could also use the extra graphics. Maybe I should save up and get a 1440p/144hz one so that I can pick for the title I want to play.

WalkerMC submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

It's sick, I didn't realize you had my keyboard, lol on me. It's awesome though isn't it?

steamer572@gmail.com 1 point 6 months ago

Yeah, it's a good keyboard for the price. I like the blue switches on it.

Just a recommendation, if you are running a blower style card like the founders addition you have if would go out and buy 1-2 more intake high air flow fans. it'll help. you really have no need for more exhaust since blower style cards are pretty much giant exhaust fans.

WalkerMC submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

I'm thinking about getting an AIO for my cpu, something like nzxt kraken, would the radiator work as intake? I also have two fan mounts for the top and the front fan is where the radiator would go.

Clooterus 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

Honestly from what i know is that the wraith cooler you have on now for the amd cpu is perfectly fine. I wouldnt see a need to go to an aio. But if you really want too then yeah sure, you could do that.I would top mount the rad tho in a push config and maybe get one extra fan for an intake at the front. If you front mount that rad all your doing is pushing more hot air into the computer itself.

My computer is fine doing that only cuz both my card and my cpu are on water.

I OC'ed it to 4.05 ghz, soooo. I think it's an overclockable board.

Kobay 1 Build 2 points 6 months ago

B350 and X370 are overclockable motherboards. Only the A320 isn't, which I don't see people using... Remember, this isn't intel

Thank you
