Fractal Design sent us their new Focus G case, so we paired it with a Ryzen 5 1600 using MSI's B350 Tomahawk motherboard as well as a GTX 1070 Quicksilver for a nice white and silver themed build. The Team Dark Silver accent memory matches up well with the aesthetics of the MSI QuickSilver card. We also added in a CableMod LED Strip, controlled by the motherboard, to add a bit more light to show off in the interior of the case.
If you'd like to see how everything came together, be sure to check out the livestream archive of the build.
A big thanks to Fractal Design for providing the case and MSI for providing the motherboard to use in this build.
And now, onto some benchmarks.
During the livestream, we ran at stock CPU clocks, with the memory running at 2667 MHz. For our benchmark testing results below, we were able (with the latest BIOS update) to get stable results with the memory at 3000 MHz, which gave notable performance improvements. We left the CPU at stock core clocks (3.2GHz). The Turbo Core speeds moved it up to 3.6GHz and even 3.7GHz on a couple cores at a time under load. You can see the max temps for the CPU and GPU in the details section on the right side of the page.
