PC Build Complete

in STEMGeekslast year



You can read about the build in my post here. But here is a quick summary

AMD 5950X
Kyronaut Grizzly Thermal Paste
Asus Dark Hero Motherboard
G-Skillz Trident Neo Z 32GB 3600 CL16 Ram
Samsung 980 Pro NVME Gen 4
Noctua NH-D15 Cooler
Phanteks P400A Case
ASUS XG-C100C 10G Network Adapter
Corsair RM750X PSU
MSI Gaming X 1070

I'm still waiting on a RTX 3080 so I am using a 1070 for now.

Everything went fairly well, I ended up having to buy a 3 way splitter for the front fans so I didn't have to run cables all over the case. I couldn't fit the second fan on the Noctua cooler which works out as the ram RGB is still visible.

This is the first time I used RGB and I have them set to Purple & Blue, my son and my favorite colors.

I really love the case, I'm used to using Fractal Design cases and this is easier to work with and smaller footprint yet has more breathing room. I did like the sound dampening on the Fractal Design cases but I really love this glass panel.

I haven't started overclocking it yet, but I am getting predictable benchmark scores from CPU-Z.

Idle I am getting temps as low as 36C and CPU-Z stress test around 78C. This seems to be with norms for this setup.

Out of curiosity, I tested KoinOS mining and was seeing 82-83MH/s.


I need to do some cable management and finishing installing software, but so far everything is looking good. Playing my favorite game right now Hunt: Showdown doesn't push the CPU past 20% usage.

this is a huge system. do you suggest any particular models I should buy for gaming? are the gaming machines different from normal working laptops or pcs ?

I build my own machines, so I couldn't recommend a pre-built. I would highly recommend AMD processor though, the new 5000 series is blowing away Intel.

That looks slick! The vented front of the case accentuates that blue/purple so well, and the cable management looks really tidy. (Besides the GPU, but what can we really do about that).
Great job!

Dam, That CPU cooler is a monster. I went with a corsair water cooler cause I was never sure if these big fan would put alot pressure on the MoBo.

That is a nice case, To much blue for me but the airflow looks great with the front mesh and 3 fans

CPU Coolers have become insanely big. I really wanted an AIO but I didn't want to risk a leak and I like the quieter air cooling.

Yeah, I never got a leak did has a pump fail but luckily corsair was great about it.

It was loud till I added expensive fans

That's a mighty machine. How noisy is it? My PC is a few years old, but then I don't play games.

Have fun.

Pretty quiet.

There is a difference between assembling a computer and actually building one.

You are very low ability, very low IQ.
