Yeah, fire up Aida 64 or something and take a look. Another thing to consider is while Ryzen has the multi-threaded advantage, the Intel architecture remains generally better for gaming. Might also be worth checking for updated drivers?

I'm also looking into using this case! All reviews are really positive. The hard drive caddies are mounted in the PSU shroud. From memory, you can house up to 9 SSD's (6 without an upgrade) and 6 hard drives. Might be 4. Cable management is great, lots of Velcro and spots for zip ties. Fan hub included in a good place for wires. Two panels close off the majority of the cables, though, so you don't see them through the tempered glass back panel. Airflow has improved markedly over the last gen Evolv, and there's a smallish delta of about 5 degrees, give or take. Good luck with your first build!

I think he means the Hue+ vs the integrated case Smart Hub. The Hue+ has multiple RGB channels with support for daisy-chaining, but the Smart hub can only control the RGB strip. Hope that helps.

Any stress test, AIDA 64 would be good if possible. I think you can get a trial version of that. I'd like to see CPU/GPU temps at full load.

It looks pretty good, although: The CPU Cooler is a bit obscure. Not sure how good it is, but maybe a Corsair H100i would work better? The Motherboard is something to watch. The 8600k is overclockable, which your motherboard doesn't support. If you want to overclock, get a Z370 board. If not, look into a CPU without a 'K' designation at the end. The case... Open air cases look cool, but they will gather dust easily. A traditional case might be better, but that's your choice. I'd go with something like a Fractal Meshify C (TG) or an S340 Elite.

How's the NZXT mobo? I have been wondering about it, how does it hold up in terms of RGB compatibility? NZXT only say there are 2 RGB headers, are they for the fans and RGB strips? I saw you got the expansion kit, how do you run them in tandem with the fans if that is four RGB channels? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Wonderful build, BTW. +1

Yeah, it's because most AM4 motherboards will need a BIOS update for the new 2nd gen Ryzen chips. PCPP doesn't like that.

I love it. Like others have said, Noctua makes some really good CPU coolers. However, as your CPU is locked you could also go with maybe the new NZXT M12 or whatever they are calling the 120mm Rad.

Any chance of the X52 being rotated upright, so the logo is too? I don't think you would have RAM clearance issues. Was that just a mistake in building?

The incompatibility error you are seeing means that the M.2 SSD ports on your motherboard share bandwidth with one of your SATA ports for other drives, it's nothing bad but something to be aware of just in case you need all the SATA ports or have issues detecting a drive when you first boot so you know how to troubleshoot.

I have made a few changes on your parts list, which goes as follows:

If you can at all be persuaded, I do recommend you look into a different case. It doesn't have the best airflow, and is quite expensive (although cost could be justified through the inclusion of the RGB fans). Like you said, cable management is also a challenge. I, personally, if I was going for the 570X, would get the mirrored version. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/zRTPxr/corsair-crystal-570x-rgb-mirror-black-atx-mid-tower-case-cc-9011126-ww It looks really good, I have heard.

If you are remaining steadfast, you might benefit from something like these: https://store.cablemod.com/product/cablemod-pro-modmesh-c-series-rmi-rmx-cable-kit/ They are custom cables for the PSU I have selected, it will help with cable management and the look of the PC also. Please be aware that if you change the PSU back to what you had, these cables will no longer be compatible, and you will have to check the CableMod website for more.

Good luck!

Very nice! Looking really good, this is one of the few HTPC Builds where I wish there was a glass/acrylic side panel to show off the components. You did a very good job of cable management. Only thing I can say is that you might benefit from the Noctua cooler I mentioned below. Very well done!

Temps are fine, but a Noctua NH-L9i might do the trick of making it quieter and cooler.

Not only that, while Coffee Lake uses the same CPU socket, the electronics of it are a bit different. Only on Z370, H370 or B350 (or whatever they end up calling it, probably not B350 because of Ryzen.)
