Description

I decided to build myself a custom computer around January or February of 2017. Since I was on a budget I tried to get as much power as I could from the parts that I was choosing. I took my time with researching everything from the CPU to the RAM to the power supply. I watched many youtube videos about each computer component, read the review and asked friends who built or has custom computers. I was gonna go with the i5 7500, but when I heard about the Ryzen 5 I decided to wait and see if it is better. It wasn't easy waiting for an extra 2 months for it to be released but it was well worth it. I have had the computer for a month now and no problem at all. I did get the motherboard for $5 less since It was out of stock on amazon and I couldn't wait for them to restock so I went to Fry's electrons ( similar to BestBuy but bigger and has more electronics ) and actually found a returned item.I asked them to open it and check if all the cables are there and if nothing is wrong with the motherboard, so they did and nothing was wrong with it, so I took it. I also bought a led fan and put it on the front. It was $9 off amazon I am glad I took my time, did not rush things and did my research.

CS: GO setting all high, fps +200.

The forest multiplayer setting all high fps 60.

I'm going to get Call of Duty World War II ( I'm pretty sure I"ll be able to run it on high setting and get high fps ).

Future upgrades are getting a SSD and another 8GB of ram to have a total of 16 GB.

thanks and I was planning on making a time lapse but I was feeling down since I got flashed at a traffic light and I think I'm getting ticket.
I was coming back home after purchasing the final piece I needed, the motherboard.

how is it holding up? I have almost the exact same build in mind, just a different PSU and case, and possibly 16gb of ram instead of 8, but I may go 8.

Are you able to stream?

Yes, I’ve streamed with no stress tho if I had 16 GB of ram it would be nicer.

Hey! I am actually looking to build a PC and your build inspired me to change a lot of my parts in order to save money. So far, after changing my part list, I have saved slightly less than $200. Thanks a lot!

Hey, I was looking through this build, is there anything that you're upgrading or wanting to upgrade? This was posted about a year ago, so can you give me an update?

  • 20 months ago

I upgraded my gpu from a 1050ti to a 1060 6GB strix that has 3 fans ( never heats up and always quite ) I still have 8 GB of ram, I like to multitask a lot but I never had a problem there except the time I played cod world at war 2 ( that game require 12 GB ) My priority is to get an SSD and install windows and the games that I play mojourty of the time (I’m just busy and too lazy to reinstall windows and fix everything up). My advise is to find deals on Newegg for combos and if you can afford 2x8GB or 1x16 GB of ram then do it. Oh I also put an aftermarket cpu cooler, it was a cheap one for $30

Great part selections! Also how's the case and do you plan on overclocking?

  • 31 months ago
  • 1 point

Thank, the case is great and looks good, especially for that price. I plan on overclocking whenever I feel like I need more power. Right now I'm using the computer with no problem at all, it's fast and powerful.

I woulda recommended getting an SSD either instead or with the HDD, but nice budget build, seems if you need more ram or stuff should be an easy upgrade!

  • 31 months ago

I know an SSD is a must but for my budget, the 1TB HDD made more sense to me.

  • 31 months ago

No but just watch videos on youtube, read the manuals that come with the parts ( the motherboard manual is really important) and just match the heads with the pins on the motherboard. Take your time and double check the cables are in the correct slot.

I forgot to mention that I added a fan splitter to add the second fan, I didn't know that motherboard had 3 fan ports (one for the cpu fan, and 2 others). It cost $4 on amazon.

Hello! I really like your build ! Im planning to build this but i got a request if you dont mind. Can you please make a video on how you install the parts? Thank you keep up the good work!

  • 30 months ago

I can write down the steps for you. I just don't want to open up all the parts and put them back together. when I write down everything it should then be really easy to build t and if you are stuck at any part you can simple google or youtube to how to that specific step. I think the only annoying this was the cables, however installing the motherboard and the power supply into the case is easy. As well as installing the CPU, CPU fan, GPU, Ram is really easy.

It's great, I added a monitor and a gaming keyboard and mouse. loving the dual monitor ( check my first picture). great man, the risen 1500x? I'd prefer you watch videos on youtube and while building the pc have this on plus a video I prefer this ----> https://youtu.be/r4MTvj3zIZw?t=8m26s it is a really good video. 1) make sure you're not standing on carpet. 2) open us every box 3) open the side of the case, lay it on the side so the open side is on top. 4) put in the power supply and screw it with the provided screws ( if the power supply goes up, put it up and if it goes down, then put it down). ex: check my fourth pic 5) put the motherboard on its box or a mouse pad, then put in the RAM then remove whatever is screwed to the back of the motherboard around the CPU slot, then put in the CPU. 6) put the CPU cooler in the correct place, screw it in and the connect the cable to the motherboard ( check the manual for the correct spot ( I'll also try to upload a pic of my motherboard with all the cables so it might be easier for you) CHECK PIC 8 ). 7) put in the shield of the motherboard to the back of the case the correct way
8) next put in the motherboard inside case and make the holes on the motherboard match the holes on the case to screw it to the case ( tip: you can unscrew the holes that are on the case ( in case a hole is in the wrong spot ) and put it where you need it to be ) CHECK PIC 9. 9) now for the most tedious and annoying step, there should be cables coming from the top of the case, there are 4-6 small and thin cables, you'll have to read the motherboard manual to correctly put them in the right spot ( they are the front panel cables ). Time to match the cables xD CHECK the LAST PIC 10) put in the rest of the cables that are coming from the front panel. 11) from the power supply plug in the 24 pin cable to the motherboard (left side of the motherboard). 12) from the power supply plug the CPU cable to the motherboard ( top left side of the motherboard) 13) plug the case fan in the case (the cord has 3 holes but on the motherboard, it's 4 pins). 14) put in the HHD or SSD in the case and plug one end of the SATA cable to the HHD or SSD and the other end to the motherboard. 15) find out which expansion slot/bracket on the back of the case are you going to remove for the CPU. 16) remove the slot/bracket then put in the GPU ( for the GPU I choose there's no cable to connect to it ). I think this is pretty much it, make sure that all by watching the video I provided. 17) PLUG THE POWER CABLE IN THE BACK OF THE POWER SUPPLY, START IT AND CHECK IT WORK. I hope this helped and let me know how it goes. Good Luck

watch lots of tutorials and you'll eventually now what the primary steps that you need to do. If you get the same power supply I bought ( not modular ( look up what that means )) you'll have some cables that won't go on the motherboard or anywhere ( extras for somethings that you don't need ) DONT FREAK OUT. Make sure all the cables that are mentioned in the tutorial video are connected then whatever is extra just tuck it somewhere ( cable management).

The performance is great. And the Ryzen 1500x is running everything I'm throwing at it. I ran photoshop and cs go at the same time with 2 pages on google chrome.

Have you bought your mobo from amazon? Cause it said: ship within 1 to for 4 weeks on amazon?

  • 30 months ago

I did the 30 days prime trial, bought everything and received it within a FEW days. I then removed the credit card from Amazon so that they don't charge me and then canceled the prime trial.

At the time I was buying everything Amazon was out of stock of that mobo. since It was out of stock on Amazon and I couldn't wait for them to restock so I went to Fry's electrons ( similar to BestBuy but bigger and has more electronics ) and actually found a returned item.I asked them to open it and check if all the cables are there and if nothing is wrong with the motherboard, so they did and nothing was wrong with it, so I took it. it was $5 dollars cheaper too :P

could you overclock the r5 1500x using the stock cooler? also how's your fps in games with the 1050ti? nice build

  • 30 months ago

I believe I can overclock it to 3.70 GHz with a stock cooler. All the games I have played so far I have been always getting way more than 60 fps

Quick question I'm making a computer really close to this

Question1. Is the are the GPU temps good?

Question2. is the motherboard good I am currently thinking about getting the MSI Tomohawk?

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

1) during normal usage it's around 30°C-32°C, While gaming it might go up to 35°C-50°C. Under 100% usage of GPU power, it goes up to 60°C 2) The motherboard is great, however, it has only 2 RAM slots and one GPU slots. None the less it's cheap also if you're planning to use only one GPU and maybe 2 sticks of 8 GB of RAM then it's perfect. The MSI Tomohawk has 4 slots and 2 GPU slots bla bla but it's about $30 more expensive.

Quick question: On the connections between the motherboard and the case ( Power LED, HDD LED, Reset switch, power switch) Did all of the connections fit onto the motherboard or did you need to leave some off or get an adapter? I was planning on getting the same set up and wanted to make sure.

  • 25 months ago

There’s 6 cables of the cables you’re talking about and they all fit on the case, even the 3.0 and 2.0 usb Nothing was left unplugged

  • 25 months ago

All the stuff from the case as well? Power led, reset switch, hdd led, etc. All those cables have a corresponding spot on the motherboard?
