Description

My first build. I was going for a white/black build with static Rgb. It came out better than I thought. Collected parts since November. Got some for Christmas. I have worked on lots of computers, but this was the first one I was able to build. It would have cost around a $1000, but I got it for $700. Got the Gpu from a friend for $60, and the motherboard unopened off ebay. Here's some info on performance. I can't stress enough how good Amd is for all around use and multitasking. The 2600 is one of the most bang for buck you can get.

Cpu idle: 21c 69f

Cpu while playing a game: 37c 98f

I have run most games such as apex at 100Fps at almost max settings.

Cpu base speed: 3.4Ghz

I overclocked it to 3.7Ghz

Edit: I overclocked it to 4.0Ghz. It runs under 50c while gaming on high settings The Cpu handles games with big maps very easily. Right now my Gpu is bottle necking my system, but I plan on getting a 2060 within the next 6 months

Cinebench: 1200 cb 98Fps

Boot time: 11 seconds

I have played apex while downloading a game with the cpu only at 40% 37c which is amazing

Part Reviews

CPU

6 cores, 12 threads for $170. Overclocked it to 4.0Ghz on air cooler with temps under 40c when gaming. Intel can't do that. Glad I bought this.

CPU Cooler

Great quality for price. Keeps my cpu cool. Looks very clean, and would recommend for anyone.

Motherboard

Rgb software isnt the greatest.

I always loved the look of that case, but I was afraid that the airflow might be crappy. It seems like your temps are really good though. So that's encouraging. Looks like an excellent build for suggest a low price!

Thanks! The case is very good for the price. The front fans bring air through the side and bottom of case with filters. The top and back fans do not but thats ok.

Pretty cool build! I personally would have opted for a SSD instead of a HDD but that's just me...

I have a m.2 SSD for os. Hhd for Mass storage. It boots normally in about 10 seconds

Did you mean a SSD for Mass storage? And thanks!

Nice Build! The one recommendation I would make is to overclock the 2600 to 3.9Ghz... as that's the standard boost clock. So in a gaming scenario where single threaded performance matters the most, having all six cores locked at 3.7Ghz is likely taking a little bit of performance off the table.

Yea, Ill probaly do that later. It still destroys games like csgo at 170Fps. Rn my gpu is bottlenecking my cpu. I plan on getting either a 1070 or 2060 later as well as another pair of ram. Thanks!

REALLY clean!! Impressive for your first build, looks well over its actual price from first look.

Thank you! I hope that proves that patience pays off. Took me 3 months of collecting parts for this guy

Awesome build! I get a few degrees higher on my 2600 with the stock cooler, but I’m not running anything on 4K just yet so I’m good for the time being. What do you primarily do with your system?

Video games, YouTube, school stuff. I might start a YouTube channel sometime in the future. I plan on getting vr and upgrading ram to 4 sticks as well as my gpu. Thanks!

Hi, awesome looking build, but i have a few questions if you don't mind? :D

I am looking to build a pc in the H500 due to the minimalist looks however the stock negative pressure setup concerns me about temperatures. Whilst your CPU temperatures are actually looking really good, what are the GPU temps whilst gaming or under a stress test with the two front fans installed, thanks! :D

Hi thank you for asking. I actually haven't checked my temps on gpu. But I can tell you it runs cool. My fans on my gpu are temp sensitive and only turn on when needed. They only kick on when I am running games. Anything else it hasnt even kicked on once. I can tell you that the case is really good if you add two more fans up front. You can put two 140mm fans in front and a 140mm on top. I only have all 120mm fans and I am seeing very low temps. I can safely say that if I were you I would get it. Great cable management, PSU sroud, glass panel, and clean look. The only other case I would consider for a mid-range build is the h700. Also I have felt the airflow all ways with my hand while it was running, and the case has plenty of space for airflow. I hope that helps!

Also it's a balanced pressure factory default not negative. One fan in and one fan out. With adding the two fans up front was definitely worth it. Also if you want static rgb like I have, check out the fans I bought. 34$ for three rgb fans and rgb controller. Also let me know if you want any advice when you build.

Thanks man, much appreciated for the explanation, i've pinned this post/tab so I can come back to it when I build my pc, going to use it as inspiration as I really like the colour scheme. Looks like its my next case!

i like this but im think of a better GPU anyone know what kidna gou would work with that chip set

  • 12 months ago

The GPU I used is a older one from a friend that I am using as a placeholder. I plan on getting the Sapphire rx 580 nitro +. Its around $200 and has 8Gb of VRAM

what other gpu do you think would work well

  • 12 months ago

With the 2600, anything up to 1080 would work well. It depends on how much you spend. rx 590 is $220, GTX 1070 is around $400, GTX 1060 is ok but the rx 580 and rx 590 are waayyyy better. The new 1660 and 1660ti might work, but they arent well priced. Just find a budget, see whats available, and decide which one has the best performance for that set price.

Would of been better with Intel inside of it

Works just fine. Intel equivalent would have cost me double with less performance
