Description

My second build this year used mostly for gaming and short clip recording and streaming. Very proud of this build as it has been my dream build since the RTX cards were released. I'm not the best with cable management so this case gave me a lot of space to work with along with some cable extenders.

Part Reviews

CPU

Using the XMP profile tool on the Asus motherboard I easily managed to crank this baby up to 5ghz but overclocking is unfamiliar territory for me so I dialled it back to 4.7 which give me more than enough for the performance I need in gaming.

CPU Cooler

Being my first AIO CPU cooler I'm happy with no regrets on this option. It has kept the temps down where I need it, only issue I had was the installation with the hoses being very stiff but once I had them in place I was happy. Also trying to get the ARGB to talk to the motherboard was an issue although I do have about 6 different ARGB devices connected.

Motherboard

I once owned a 370E model motherboard for my i5 8600k but now I wanted synced lighting and therefore needed this one. The 390F model has an added addressable RGB header to get me going with the lighting.

Memory

I actually have 4 x 8gb combined to 32gb of RAM. Sweet with ARGB I am able to sync these guys with the rest of my rig, easy to install and perfect size.

Video Card

I am not the most savvy with GPU performance but playing at 1440p on a 144hz monitor I am able to sustain 90+ fps on many AAA games on the highest setting.

Case

Now a bit of a mix up here I actually have a C31 Commander!! But PCPARTPICKER hasn't got this case available to view. Very similar to the view 71 plenty of room and lots of airflow.

Monitor

The beast! This thing is just beautiful it's damn near perfect!! 27" and that smooth refresh rate to make you cry!

The opening in the PSU shroud kind of reminds my the compactor scene from Star Wars. You should throw a little C3PO in there or something. Nice build though.

I see no reason not to take this advice.

it could really use a better cooling system with those temps it like its basically a bomb

Not really you really only have to worry about temps when it gets into the high 80's low 90s that's when you risk thermal throttling
