Gaming Pc Refresh

by DravinGruulDeserter

Description

This is my finished upgrade to my old gaming system that i bought back in 2013 that i had built to be strong enough to play Skyrim and most of the bigger games of the time. The Reason i went with the Rx 570 4gb is because I am Team Red and i got it near the end of the Beginning of the End of the Crypto Mining Nonsense...Lol i got it for Christmas 2017 so i don't actually know the exact price that was paid for the card.

I have been a fan of IN-Win since my first computer which was built by Cybertron Pc and was in a IN-Win case as well the old color scheme was Black and Orange with Orange being my Favorite Color Unfortunately by the time i realize the i could have stuck with the orange/black color scheme with Arours parts i had already bought the MSI board so i changed the color scheme to red/black/White.

I am also waiting for AMD to reveal the Next generation of there mid range graphics cards before i upgrade from the 4gb 570 to a 8Gb Card

The only problem I have with the case is that one of the top USB 3 ports do not work not sure what's wrong with it and I can't use the USB c port because my MB doesn't have a internal header for it but other then that it's great

*update on the build i had to go back to the Stock Cooler that comes with AMD Ryzen 5 2600x and i had to get a new graphics card the XFX Radeon RX 580 8GB. The Deepcool Captain 240 EX RGB Liquid AIO broke Pictures include to show what happened. *

How do you like the Deepcool cooler? I've heard mixed reviews on them, but I love the look.

Clean build! +1

I have had no problems from the Cooler Its the First AIO i have used and it works really well and keeps my Cpu Cool the Fans normally keep at around 50% but i also don't overclock my parts that is the reason i went with the 2600x over the 2600. Like you i had read mixed reviews on them about how people said that they leaked and destroyed parts in there rigs but any AIO could fail no matter who made it and its a risk you take when adding water to your system.

AIO failure (usually pump and open water cooling in general) has definitely like you've mentioned very slim chance, but definitely not none. The reason why this "will never leak" AIO advertised by Deepcool fails is due to the compressed air pressure towards mounting (iirc the mounting is made out of plastic?) which then raises the pressure up and either the glass tube explodes or leaks out through bottom pump holes where it screws on. Only handful 240mm AIOs are great without stepping into 280mm/360mm price ranges. If you ever will face a leak and system fails afaik Deepcool actually replaces your whole dead system.
