I love it when motherboards have legitimate heat sink's on the VRM's.

I agree, could have done a lot better. Especially that single channel memory.

Thank god it is no longer how it was in the crisis. Mearly $200 for 16GB of 3000 RAM.

+1 just for that Galax Beast. Those things are so hard to find.

That GPU looks cool. Does it come from the factory like that or did you spray paint the shroud?

I think its got more to do with how small the CPU cooler is. Rather than where it is pointed.

You should definitely try overclocking that 1070Ti. The EVGA FTW cards are binned pretty good, and they also have a VRM that is quite a bit better than a normal 1070Ti. Not to mention on all EVGA FTW GPU's, they have added a new bios on the card that you can switch to. Which allows you to have +130% Power Target.

They are all really awesome, other than the fact that the 3700x and above will be sold out for a good while. Will be a pain in the butt to get. I wonder if Intel will even bother to release their next consumer CPU architecture, and if they do. How well it would do against Ryzen3000

I know the 1070Ti can handle 1440 at 75hz cause that's what I've got. I dunno about 165hz though, seems really high.

Don't tell me you actually paid $340 for that 1700x a few days before Ryzen3000 comes out.

The OP like specifically stated that they do not care how the computer looks, lol. They literally say in the description, that the main thing OP wants is good performance with silent operation. The H500i or 700 would do the exact opposite of what they want.

The AIO blows air onto your VRM's? How big is the fan? It must be tiny.

How do you like the ASUS liquid cooler? Does it give better temps compared to a normal AIO? Just asking cause it is like double the price of a EVGA or Corsair one.

Wait for Ryzen3000, it is released in around a week and will completely destroy everything else on the market currently by a long shot. Just please do not buy a B450 motherboard, go get yourself a X570 chipset board. Trust me, you will thank me later when you want to overclock and realize that your will literally burn down your B450 if you try overclocking a Ryzen3000 series chip on it

The builder's case is perfectly fine, if not better than the ones you mentioned. The h500i and h700i have absolutely atrocious cooling properties and would probably hurt the computers performance.....

Buys a 9900K not even a week before it is about to get crushed by Ryzen3000. Then gets a 1660. What am I seeing.

This is a really clean build! One thing though, I would highly recommend investing in some magnetic dust covers for the front and bottom of your PC (I think that is where your case's intakes are). It looks like you have almost no filtration, that will be a problem in the future.

I would recommend trying to get cooling on the VRM if your overclocking the 2200G, especially since this is ITX. The CPU temps should be somewhat ok with the stock cooler, but with APU's. The motherboards VRM get a lot hotter compared to a normal processor due to the integrated graphics, and the boards VRM having to supply power for the CPU+Graphics. Compared to a system with separate GPU and CPU where the GPU has an 8 pin connected to it straight from the PSU which kind of bypasses the motherboard VRM.

Wow, someone who realizes that if your overclocking, VRM cooling is important.

Its not bad but I would hold back on calling it good. The OP got 32GB of RAM for gaming... Also got only 2400Mhz RAM speed for a Ryzen chip, I dunno how by much but it is definitely holding the CPU back (at least by 10% compared to 3000mhz). If OP does not have XMP enabled then the sticks would be running at 2133Mhz, hurting the CPU even more. If the OP had not purchased all that RAM they could have gotten a RTX2060, or a Ryzen 2700. It is a decent build, other than the RAM aspect that is holding it back.

Only advice I can give you is to buy a SSD. Even cheap SSD's will be faster than expensive Hard drives.

There's no such thing as chipsets not fitting a board. They literally come with the board from the factory.... And there's practically no way your average joe could modify something like that.

Someone clearly knows nothing about how hardware works together. I bet his reasoning for the bottleneck is that you cannot pair AMD and Nvidia stuff together. LOL

Don't worry. It is a common mistake that people make, most would say the same if they did not actually test or research it themselves.

Doing that would increase your CPU temperatures dramatically, generally CPU radiator in the front of the case is the best for temperatures. This has been proven many times by Youtube channels like Linus Tech Tips, Jayz2Cents, GamersNexus. If OP did what you said, his performance would go down.

If you are okay with waiting a while. Nvidia is apparently releasing a RTX turing architecture refresh soonish. So basically it will be a bit stronger than current RTX cards, but at a cheaper price. If not I would get a used 1080 or 1080Ti, if you only buy the "lower end" 50 and 60 cards you will be forced to buy a more powerful GPU sooner. Currently I believe the performance/Dollar does not favor RTX GPU's. You can find used 1080 and 1080ti's anywhere from like $300-$600, and those will give you the performance of a 2070 for less money. Just my 2 cents

I agree, especially since people who are buying prebuilt computers most likely do not know anything about dual channel memory. It just seems like a dirty tactic to me. But hey maybe the person buying it just wants to use youtube and google things.

You got a pretty good deal for that 1080. Did you just build this recently? Your CPU also seems to be just enough so that your 1080 is not bottlenecked.
