Description

A gaming rig capable of running the latest titles including Ray Traced games. Streaming and Playing games are the two things I primarily use this for.

Part Reviews

CPU

Incredibly powerful CPU capable of running all the latest games and programs without batting an eye

CPU Cooler

Gorgeous CPU AIO capable of keeping a Ryzen 5 2600 at below 30 degrees at idle and at full load below 70 degrees.

Motherboard

Great motherboard with nice bios. RGB is a nice addition. No stability issues. M.2 Heatsink screws are difficult to work with (see below)

Issues: The M.2 heatsink screws are threaded with rubber. This means that it's VERY easy to strip the screws preventing the heatsink from being removed. I was still able to slightly lift and rotate the heatsink on a single screw's axis and install a drive, but one screw is permanently stuck now.

Memory

This memory is lightning fast. Play any game at ultra/extreme settings and the ram doesn't doesn't have any trouble.

Storage

Incredible value, this SSD is lightning fast and boots up windows 10 in under 14 seconds.

Storage

Good HDD for the price. A hard drive is a hard drive and the speeds are limited compared to an SSD of any type (sata, m.2, etc.)

Video Card

Super powerful, runs moderately cool, and looks gorgeous (Purchased white version). This card can run anything I throw at it, and is compatible with RTX features. Ray Tracing on Metro Exodus runs at about 80 fps average with ultra graphics.

Case

A beautiful case designed for airflow, and compatibility. It only supports up to 240mm Rad, but supports E-ATX motherboards and has no space issues. Cable management system is good but could be a bit better.

Power Supply

Does what it's supposed to. Keeps my components safe and provides enough power for them.

Custom

Bought these fans for the top and rear of the case. Very quiet and ARGB is gorgeous. Works perfectly with CoolerMaster Ml240R AIO

Custom

These sleeved cables are gorgeous and have similar quality to those brands which cost double. If you're looking for custom sleeved cables at a good price, these are where you should be looking.

Does that cpu bottleneck the GPU?

Yes 2600 is going to bottleneck 2080

It has about a 5-10% bottleneck, but I’m waiting for the 3rd gen ryzen cpu’s To come out so I can get that beast of a 3700x

Love what you did with the colors and the build is great. One thing I would say is add more pictures.

I am thinking of buying that case and painting it white on the outside. Good or bad idea? I really like the look of your PC, but you should add more pictures from the front for example.

I personally think that the case would look great in full white. You'd have to sand off the current paint, but full white with the RGB accents would look great. I'll upload some more screenshots right now.
