Description

I built my first Pc back in dec using black friday deals. I had a blast on pc that i decided to upgrade and give my little brother my ryzen 1600 build. I took my rgb parts from my old build.

Alot of these prices where due to amazon prime deals or finding deals using build pc deals on reddit.

I manged to replace all the part i took out of my old pc with identical or same specs. So i did get my brother a 1080 gpu and 16gb of ddr4 3000- ram.

I over spent on case but only reason wife would let me upgrade is if i got more rgb so i did.

Coolermaster case fans i won at pax west last year. Both me and little brother won a pack of rgb fans.

I ran into 2 problem: 1- Case is setup for 2x 3.0 usb but motherboard i bought only had one. It works out fine for me as i didnt need that much usb ports. yes i did research on mobo and even saw youtubers build in this case using same mobo but not once mention that problem but no biggie.

2- The case rgb is Argb and case fans i got for free where rgb. I thought about hooking the argb fans in case to mobo so i could use aura sync and it would work together but i couldn't find anywhere on manual that stated it work with aura sync so i just left those two by themselves.

Overall its a great pc and upgrade was totally worth it. I cant wait to play pubg with the little brother.

Thank you for checking out my build.

First H500M build on PCPP!

This case is very much worth the RGB bling it delivers. :D

I noticed that this might be first one. I was looking for people input on it but couldnt find much people who bought it. Wife wants rgb so i spent the extra bucks for this case. Great to build in and the ARGB is awesome. I will have to take some more pics so people interested in case can get a better feel.

Very nice build! Quick questions what are your opinions on the AIO cooler? I am thinking of getting it for my build but a lot of negative reviews are making me think otherwise.

I was also gonna go a different route but it was on sale for 39.99. I'd recommend it. Keeps my CPU around 35-40c. I didnt use the fans that came with it tho. I won rgb fans at pax west and used them instead. I saw alot of reviews about how hard it was too install but it was very simple and easy to install.

Awesome build!!! Im thinking about buying a h500m case but i couldn't find info about the dust filtering except the psu at the bottom. What you can tell me about the front panel, does it filter the dust?

Only filter is the one on psu on the bottom. I use the mesh front panel and is does a great job with dust. the room i play in is pretty dusty but so far its kept clean.

How well does the ram play with your cpu? I am getting a 2600x with this ram and I am worried that it might not be able to reach full speed.

You should be fine, I was able to reach full speed. My brother has 1600 and wasnt able to reach full speeds on a b350 but after a bios update he was able to reach full speed.

First off: The build looks great from spec to finish. The new PC I am creating from the ground up (no carry-over parts from old PC's...not even KB or HDD) is in almost a lock-step with your build. I have a question though: Do you feel you HAD to go with a water-cooling solution, especially with this case and the huge fans on the front? I am torn.... I just don't want to mess with water-cooling at this point but I am getting very mixed info on whether it is necessary with a 2600 or even a 2600X cpu. I had chosen this case over the HAF cases I have used in the past as they are HUGE, and an air cooling solution (either stock Wraith or 3rd party). Any thoughts?

I was originally planning on using the stock cooler that came with 2700x. Since i gave my brother my 1600 build he ended up surprising me with the aio cpu cooler. This case provides enough airflow and with stock cooler it would've been just fine. Stock cooler are just fine but if you pay attention the aio cpu cooler goes on sale often so if you want to go that route. The aio cpu cooler was a easy to install.

I used Reddit build a pc sales alot to get deals. Ill post the link for you.
