Description

So I wanted to build a computer with some of my deployment money from Afghanistan. I went with a red theme because of the AMD processor along with the Vega 64 graphics card. It wasn't that hard to build, and it's my first full build. I've upgraded computers before, but haven't built one from scratch. The most difficult part was hiding wires for my first time, and the power supply being 1000w was hard to fit in the case, but after forcing it in there it was fine. Let me know if there is anything you like/dislike or something I should have done differently. It's a gaming/workstation which is why I went with the 34"lg with Freesync at 75Hz. The only thing I noticed is the Vega 64 reference card runs a little warm. Does anyone have a wattman setting for this card? Also don't mind the wires in the back, I'm gonna do all of that later.

It's nice to see that you stay true to the color scheme of your peripherals, desk and chair. 50$ for a case with a PSU shroud and 3x120mm red LED fans seems like a good deal, too bad the back of dvd/cd writer is sticking out like a sore thumb. 1000WATT PSU is a bit overkill imo. Overall nice build :)

I wanted to go all red AMD and everything just matched so well. Yeah, I plan on taking the disc drive out to eventually paint the outside safely to a matte black so it matches the case a little better! Only reason I went with a 1000w is because later down the line I wanted to run either SLI or go liquid cooling on everything, plus that Vega 64 EATS haha. Thank you though! :D

That's a very nice rig. Love team red. I'm sure that V64 can handle 144Hz! +1

Thank you! All about team red! Oh most definitely, but for a 144Hz 34" widescreen was like another $200 :|.

Really nice build all you need is a bunch of zip ties for cable management.

Thank you! Yeah, I'm gonna tidy all of that up really soon. Also want to paint the CD drive so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb haha.

How are your CPU temperatures with the Ryzen's stock "Wraith Prism" CPU cooler?

On the stock "Wraith Prism" CPU cooler, it actually runs fairly cool. I only have mine set to 4.0GHz and under no load it runs around 40c, and under full load which it usually never gets around, it runs at 60c. On the website the max temp is like 85c so I could boost it more, but my PC stays fairly quiet :D

Haha thanks, and the red solo cup was full of "water" lol. Yeah the wires are pretty far back there, but would really look better with like an under desk organizer!
