Description

Sadly only got the 1600 to 3.8Ghz overclock was hoping for 3.9/4 and still waiting on Bios updates to get the full 3200Mhz from the Vengeance LPX, sitting at 2933Mhz just now.

Case is absolutely fantastic though.

Side note, the 120gb ssd is actually an integral, just not on this site.

Awesome First Build. I was going to do something identical for my first build but looking at yours I'm going to change a few things. such a life saver. Cheers :)

Yeah, for a first build it looks incredible! Great cable management!

Nice work on components and everything you picked. For the budget it's 10/10.

Are you sure this is the first time you built a system? Thats some awesome cable management for a first timer.

Great choice on motherboard too, I find it to be one of the best in the matx form factor for the b350 chipsets.

Haha thanks a lot, the case makes it all too easy though, can't take all the credit myself!

This is a crazy clean build, black/white is pulled off great here.

Nice and clean. I like that you hooked everything up to the motherboard to see if it all would turn on first before putting everything in the case.

I only managed to get mine to 3.8ghz as well, great looking build.

Do you like your motherboard? Is it really good?

Is Palit a good brand for GPU?

I quite like them, i'm looking at upgrading this one to their Super JetStream 1080 (have a 1440p 144hz monitor now).

There's nothing too fancy about them, but they're typically cheaper for a very small downgrade in performance.

Is it durable? I cannot see many reviews about this brand :/

I have virtually the same build but the BIOS has capped my DDR to 2133.. I can't get anywhere near 2933 or 3200. Did you change anything to increase your mhz?

  • 32 months ago

I've overclocked the CPU to 3.8ghz at 1.3v and that allowed me to get 3066Mhz now. If it's the same mobo as mine, change the memory overclock to the xmp profile and find the highest amount that doesnt crash your system.

I am planning to build a very similar configuration, but with 8 GB of RAM 3000 MHz and without SSD, what do you think about it? Then in the future I would add another 8 GB and a SSD.

  • 31 months ago
  • 3 points

I think the SSD is the best part about my build, makes loading everything so fast. For the ram the speed is fine, 3000 is all I can run mine at anyway, and 8gb for now should be good until you have the money or need for more.

I think I will go for 120 GB of SSD for the OS, and then add another one in the future only for programs :) Thank you for your response!

Hey KeplersSomnium,

You might be able to fit some programmes on a 120GB SSD as well as the OS. Windows 10 says it takes up 20GB, but make sure you leave a bit of space (maybe a total of 40GB or something) and you might be able to fit some apps on there too. I don't claim to be an expert, but I think that's what I'm gonna try.

  • 12 months ago

Which programs would you think are the most important to install in a SSD? I know it would be very particular depending on the use that will be given to the PC, but maybe there are some programs that are encouraged to install in everyone's PC

  • 12 months ago
  • 1 point

Uh, I would go for (as well as Windows) your web browser, Discord (this installs on the drive that has the OS on, no matter what), maybe MS Word or any programs that are small enough to fit that are slow loading (maybe CAD software or video rendering programs). :)

Like all the others, amazing build. I just did one very similar to what you did. Love the simple build and clean look. Thanks for posting what you OC the CPU to. Did you OC the GPU? and What settings? Again great build, check out mine tell me what you think. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/PqbXsY

Hi , have u encounter any problem when booting up the system using that mobo and RAM ? or working nicely without a problem ? I'm planning to copy this guide but I read that some of Ryzen users having a problem with their mobo.

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

I'm not able to get the full 3200mhz, I can get 3066. That's the only issue i've come accross, nothing major. Hope the build helps!

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

This is actually my first time building my own computer. I'm just worried because i've read a lot of issues regarding either their mobo's BIOS is not updated to support CPU or their mobo is not compatible with there RAM. Ofc I don't want any issues to encounter but. I will copy this build and hopefully it works. Thanks btw

your mobo work? also ready cpu/mobo issues and was considering this one

How many case fan spots does this motherboard have because I am looking at getting this motherboard and I will run 5 fans

  • 28 months ago
  • 1 point

Sorry for not getting back quicker. It supports two case fans, i've had to use a splitter to run 3.

  • 28 months ago

No worries but thanks for the response.

did you happen to use fan splitters? if so could u link me them

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

I did, the motherboard only supports 2 case fans. I just got a cheap one on amazon for less than £5. Since then I've also bought a cheap fan controller for the front fans as the motherboard doesnt have built in control for chassis fan_2.

Sorry for the late reply, hope it's still useful.

NIce build! It scares me tho because it looks like the PC is almost falling off the desk.

  • 26 months ago

How's your PC running so far?

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

Pretty much perfectly, not had any issues so far. Only thing I might change is the GPU seeing as I've got a 1440p 144hz monitor, even still though the 1060 handles most games like a champ.

  • 27 months ago

I really like it honestly, exactly what I was gonna go for for a gaming rig, simple clean and nice, perhaps I may add some rgb for some color to it, but i really love what you went for

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

I'd bought/built it after being abroad for 6 months, I wish i'd bought the RGB corsair vengeance when it was on sale when I was away, but i figured it'd be a while before I built it and it could wait. Then ram prices skyrocketed...

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

Yea that's one of the troubles of building rn, but definitely gonna get a 1060 6gb, and 16gb just have to wait between paychecks to buy parts when i have no bills, but overall I'm gonna be able to get 4 parts next, as I already have the case and mobo, i was gonna get a hdd, processor, graphics card, and psu. Ram is gonna be last

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

And with the psu, im getting that one cause it looks like it would handle bigger gpus, and the build looks like if you just wanted to upgrade the gpu, you can do just that and not have to worry about anything else.

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

Exactly, that's why I went with this PSU, figured the first thing I'll change in this build down the road will be the GPU, wanted the extra power there for just that.

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

Great choice, and like you this is my first build, kinda nervous about it. It's getting kinda difficult to build it cause all the gpus are sold out cause of crypto mining and ram is insane. But have you been able to get that ram running at 3200? Or have they not released the bios update?

  • 26 months ago

How's the cooling with the case stock fans and the Ryzen 1600? Also, how portable would you say the case is if I needed to move it to another apartment maybe once a week (smooth 10 minute drive?)

many thanks!

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

The cooling is fine, never had the GPU over 80 Degrees Celsius and that's with the case fans turned low. It's quite heavy, but aside from that really easy to move about, could probably fit it in a strong carrier bag.

This was my first time overclocking and it was straightforward enough, didn't get passed 3.8Ghz just yet, bios seems pretty good to me.

  • 33 months ago

What cpu core voltage are you using for that 3.8Ghz OC?

1.3v

Beautifully, coming from a fx4100, gtx 560 build it's simply amazing. Max settings on BF1 gets 75-85fps.
