Thanks man. I didn't have to remove any fins I just slid paper behind the first fins. The last few pictures should show it. It made such a huge difference.

Without taking off the side panels I can already tell you that you will have a lot of space for a Scythe Fuma in this case. The H700 is a very spacious case and the Fuma is not very large compared to other coolers that this case will accommodate.

As far as the RAM goes, there won't be any compatibility issues. To get the RAM to perform at it's rated speed you enable XMP mode in the motherboard BIOS and the BIOS will detect what speed the RAM is rated for and overclock it automatically. My only recommendation is to get a Ryzen 5 2600 over the Ryzen 7 1700 now that prices have dropped on Ryzen 2 series CPU's.

Check Reddit BuildAPCSales, I was able to buy Devil RX580 8GB models in perfect condition for 100$ each, shipped. They might still even be available.

I'm fully aware of that... @Crazycatman

@Who21 No, the RTX 2080TI is fine. Between the memory, storage, and OS you could save ~$500. You should be able to find a USB Windows 10 Home for ~$80 no problem. I find PSU cables absurd considering that the PSU comes with a nice set of cables but I understand why other people use them. I'm not hurting for money but I'd definitely rather have 115$ in my pocket. You built it how you wanted to so I'm not saying you're wrong, but I dont want newcomers to get the impression that systems of this caliber will cost them 3,800$.

I like it, but to be honest I don't see a 6,000$ setup here. I think you could have shaved off a large amount of the cost without making any sacrifices. However, I know that's not everyones concern, and I don't mean to be negative. I'm very biased to value for dollar. The only issue I've had with UpHere fans is a 5th fan that would get stuck on a color. Your 34" monitor has you covered pretty well on screen space, if you get a second one you might find yourself with a sore neck. Killer setup, and clean first build. Enjoy it!

Only paid $48 shipped for the PSU + all three fans so even if they do **** out it's not a huge loss. They are great looking fans with decent airflow but I do not like their wiring configuration at all. It is a shame because they are some of the best looking fans out there.

I'd never seen one before I got my hands on these! It's something I've always wanted since I read an article in 2012 about Kingpin overclocking a 680.

As many of us are probably thinking, "Eh, I probably would have paid 10$ more for a manufactured case," it's pretty cool that you made your own custom one. I would just say drilling a few holes on the acrylic panels where the PSU, CPU, and intake fans are would make a nice difference. +1

Just depends on the price point and performance goals for your system. I play at 1440p 165Hz with a GSync Panel so I have a 1070Ti, which fit my 1500$ Budget. If I played at 1080P 144Hz I would use an RX 580 with a FreeSync Panel, and spend around 900$. It's up to preference as to whether the extra 600$ to play the same games at different resolutions and settings is worth it.

Good thermal paste is important, also, don't overclock the CPU at all. There's absolutely no need. If anything, lock it at it's boost clock and get the voltage as low as you can.

Well, think about how much you paid for your 1050Ti and compare it to the performance of the RX 570. Now add two free games.

Don't remember exact temps but 50-60c while gaming. Stays pretty cool. Yes you need to Core Performance Boost but Cool n' Quiet is a good to leave enabled.

Depending on the prices and deals you get, Ryzen 5 actually offers better price/performance and gets you on a recent platform, but Gen 3 I5's/i7's are great for recycling into modern budget builds.

Oh yeah, some of these builds are done for other people or just for fun/resale. Most of them are mine though. I'm selling the 8600k build and making this R1700 one my main rig as I don't play too many games anymore. I keep the Wraith coolers in my builds for cost/performance but the Cryorig coolers are some of my favorites, I used an H7 to cool an overclocked 2700k back in 2014 and it was pretty successful. I'm the same way with RGB. I like backlit keyboards but I reaaaaaally like not having cables and the logitech switches feel great to me.

If you're looking to build your first PC and Fortnite is your primary goal, I would recommend a Ryzen 5 1600 (130$) and an RX 570 (140$). The Rx 570 also comes with 2 Free games right now on Newegg.com.

I've had 5.3Ghz Stable but it's not worth running that 24/7. There's actually no need to Overclock the i5 8600K when it's paired with a 1070Ti, the CPU has plenty of headroom while the GPU is being maxed out.

Easily 144FPS if your monitor allows 144hz. Fortnite is not a very demanding game. Apex Legends is more demanding, this would still play it at 60+ FPS.

Good part selection. Hard to dislike a build with the same CPU and GPU as me. Make sure you use EVGA's Precision OC to Auto-overclock the 1070Ti for you. Although it's an aftermarket card, NVidia didn't allow any 1070Ti's to be sold with overclocks. You should be able to set CPU voltage to 1.35 and get 5.0Ghz, and then slowly taper the voltage down to what works best. Just make sure when you overclock that you keep the settings for a while and run benchmarks before you make changes. Sweet build!

The radiator is mounted on the top position, there isn't mounting support along the whole front panel. Custom sleeves in a workstation seems silly too. But you're right, that rear fan needs to be flipped around to exhaust.

Ryzen in general is underappreciated. Especially now that Ryzen 1xxx CPU's are selling for dirt cheap before the release of Ryzen 3. That price (185.80$) actually included an Asrock B350m Pro4 motherboard that I used for a different build. Do you have yours overclocked?

I don't even know what you were thinking when you put this together, honestly. 2666Mhz CL 16 RAM isn't fast enough, and a 6ms response time on your monitors is horrible. I think you should watch a few more LTT videos.

This is an awesome first build. Down the line an NZXT AIO and a GPU upgrade will easily take this from budget to high end, but that's all in the future. Enjoy your computer! You could also get a 1080P 144Hz monitor and benefit from it with your current hardware, especially for the games you play.

Honestly, Meh. They don't come with 2 games or a direct warranty. I'ts just not a tradeoff I would make. I've bought plenty of used hardware, sometimes it's fine and you save money and sometimes it's awful and you're left having to deal with it. I didn't need to make that gamble.

Thanks! So basically with the Mobo I'm building another system with a Ryzen 1700 that came with a free B350 board and I applied the discount to this B450 Mobo instead. The 10$ is the price difference between the 2 boards. I probably would have gone with the RX 570 even if there were RX 580's in that price range but I haven't seen any RX 580's for 170$.

That's used, and doesn't come with the games I wanted. The 580 is 15% faster but if you're buying it used there's a huge chance it's been used for mining. Not worth it to me.

Neat build. Everything makes sense exept for the low profile noctua cooler, there's plenty of space for a beefier cooler or a 240mm AIO. As far as the headphones go, if they don't sound decent without a soundcard, a soundcard won't help much. That VEGA 64 sure is a clean looking GPU. I'm curious what that last picture is and why theres an RTX 2060 box and an Intel CPU laying around in the background. +1

I have a HDD and a PSU leftover, might as well just build an entire computer. Haha that's my kind of logic. Not so sure you're going to have any leftover parts once that PSU decides to explode though. 2200G and 2400G are suprisingly good for casual gaming, multiple times better than the Jaguar APU's in our PS4's and Xbox's. +1
