I oddly love how clean everything looks in the second picture. Efficiently cable managed and not even a single spec of dust.

It looks very cool! But I'm curious as to why you would involve custom water cooling to the GPU and settle with an AIO water cooler for your CPU.

I know that the pc is orange, but I swear that it's either the lighting, the camera, or my phone cause it looks red to me.

Great build, would like to see more pics of the inside of the PC.

A quad core CPU, 16 GB of RAM, SSD boot drive with 500 GB for mass storage, and an rx 580 GPU. That's a pretty cozy build for about $650. My first laptop (a Pentium cpu using integrated graphics) was just barely this much when I got it back in 2013 and I was happy to be able to play games like Oblivion and Fallout new vegas on low medium settings at 1366 x 768. If I had a pc like this, I would have been so much happier in college.

Damn. Just Damn, man. First, seven vertical monitors side by side never looked so good. Second, I did not know that Nvidia actually had and 800 series. Third, very clean. I love it!

Nice work customizing your case! I thought about doing a carbon fiber wrap with my case, but I didn't know where to start or even where I would finish. Settled on just doing a basic paint job instead.

Those "used" parts are just as good, if not way better, than what I have now. I don't need that kind of thinking right now, man. I can not afford to upgrade my mouse, let alone my PC.

Still looks awesome though. Love the bends on the piping.

Gonna need a new motherboard for that. I've got the same CPU and I know that there is no more road to upgrade there. Would you stick with intel (maybe 8th gen, 9th...... 10th?) or would you go with AMD?

It looks good and all, but why is the noctua fan on the CPU cooler (at least that what I think it's on) point in the wrong direction?

If it works and you don't know how, don't worry about. It you broke something off (and you don't know what it does) and it works, worry about it later.

Cool build. So what do you use in your rig now?

I always thought of noctua as having the worst color scheme, but damn is it not beautiful to see a build using all noctua fans. It really shows that this is more of a quality build than just a "wooow look at my RGB" type of build. Also love your selection of parts, great quality for the dollar!

Oh hell ya! I love this build! This looks awesome, I got to respect a build that someone build for someone else but this is truly epic! An i5 that runs on ddr4, ssd boot drive, 16 gb of ram (after the spike in ram prices that we suffered through that seem like a luxury), and a gtx 1070. You're a good sibling dude, and a good person. Mad respect!

As much as I want to say that I think this build looks epic. I can't help but admire that cable managing. I spent 8 hours just cable managing my build and if I had to deal with what you did in the last picture I might have just bought a laptop. Mad respect!

Ok, so here is a what I compiled. This was made with the goal of "same performance for less." From what you had listed. I will admit, you had already done a great job compiling your part list so hopefully it could at least give you some ideas. So here is what I did different.

1) Motherboard: MSI makes great motherboards, I've been using them for a while now and their motherboards are rock solid in performance. The MSI MPG x570 is the same chipset as the motherboard you had before, but minus the RGB (RIP). Although it does have some nice coloring to it. No wireless adapter I'm afraid, but is much cheaper than the previous motherboard (-$50)

2) The RAM selecting is the exact same as your RAM, but at a frequency of 3200 mhz instead of 3600 mhz. In all honesty, I only did this to cut some corners without sacrificing performance. AMD chips are great at taking advantage of faster memory speeds for greater gains in gaming, something that intel lacks. But I think that everyone usually goes for speeds up to 3200 mhz because you start to get smaller gains at more of a cost. That said, you'll only be saving $10. If you want a little more "oomf" in performance go for the 3600 mhz. (-$10)

3) For SSD storage, I found that the Intel 660p series m.2 NVME SSD is a better price/performance than the Samsung. The SSD is of great quality, with fast load times, and even faster boot times compared to regular HDD. Though it is not really recommended for large file transfers, but if all you're doing is gaming I would highly recommend this SSD. (-$75)

4) With the GPU, I was not able to find any after-market cooler that was available. What I did find was a Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 for only about $20 more, but what you gain in performance out weighs the cost for a good GPU cooler. Plus it matches the MSI motherboard, so there is a little bit of flare there. (+$20)

5) I'll be honest I am not too sure about this case, but I choose it for a few reasons. a) It is way cheaper. b) easy to work with in cable managing with protruding side panels. c) still provides decent air flow. However there are some cons to this case; It only comes with 2 120 mm fans, there is no PSU shroud, and less room to work with. Honestly, take this recommendation with a grain of salt. While I honestly think this case can fit the bill, it may not be exactly what you want. The case is one of the hardest parts to select because in the end YOU will be the one building in it and will be looking at it for as long as you have it. (-$30)

6) For you your wireless internet needs, the TP-link Archer...... well it's a wireless adapter. I honestly haven't done much research on these things, like ever. I just bought mine (now obsolete) because it was the most commonly used at the time. The benefit of these things is that they are plug-&-play. Now drivers need or any other work needed. (+$30)

7) Artic Case fans. These are %100 optional. When cooling your PC is vital to make sure that there is decent airflow in your PC. Most PC cases that are considered Mid to high quality these days will come with maybe one or if you're lucky two fans. I make it a rule of thumb to have at least two intake fans to bring cool air into you computer and one exhaust fan to direct warm air out. Again totally optional, as in will probably only cool your pc by about a few degrees. Also if you do these fans are really good quality for a great price. (~+$10)

So tl:dr, this part list is a little over $100 cheaper but should be able to deliver the exact performance that you are looking for. Price of peripherals and other things were included.

The parts look nice. In fact you really seem to have done your homework because a lot of these have a good price/performance. But I do have a few questions:

1) are you fully committed to any/all of these parts? If you wanting to save money there could be a couple of corners to cut.

2) Do you need a full tower sized case? Or do you just like this case in particular?

3) Have you considered a gpu with an after-market cooler rather than a blower style? (I haven't looked at the price of other RX 5700s yet)

4) Are you planning on overclocking in the future? It's alright if you're not, I can understand that this motherboard is great for overclocking and comes with on-board wifi. However you can get a cheaper motherboard (even other x570 boards) and buy a wireless internet adapter for around $20 to $30.

It's never too late to post a pc build. The first pc I posted on this site (Legion) was my second build and I later posted my first build.

Good to see your pc is still playing the games you like.

My brother had a similar problem when he spilled apple cider on his computer, after using it as a coaster for so long. He only lost his graphics card, but the idiot still puts his drink on top of it.

My temps are usually around 27 to 36 C during idle (varying between winter and summer) but under load during gaming I've seen it go up to as far as 67 C on a hot day after playing for a couple of hours.

Early this summer I had replaced the thermal compound on the die of the chip because I was bored one day and I actually saw an improvement in temps in gaming by about 3 to 5 degrees. This is all without overclocking btw.
