Sorry took so long. Have been busy working and very little time on Pc. I added one with fans rgb on and one without. Very last two pictures. Hard to capture it kinda on my phone camera due to light brightness. Looks way better in person. Like I mentioned it has a lot of presets. Though the combo light once don't look great compared to solid color. The rainbow one isn't it bad.

It does I just had it off. It has a lot of different cycles you can go through. I can add a picture with it on if you like. Its a great case easy to work in. Sadly doesn't come with fans.

Just wow, what you did on that budget is amazing. And looks amazing too. I though I did good with budget on my recent build you killed it. And yea I don't doubt it sold fast and you made a nice little profit too.

I agree about the RX 570 its an amazing price to performance. Kinda like the 1070 now. Not sure what a 1060 ti is though.

Very nice build, good choice going with that PSU no reason to cheap on it at start like I have always. Also nice case choice sure little expensive but that is something that can be used in future upgrades still. I hope you didn't pay 200 for a RX 580 though I see them used for like 150. Overall good job. Enjoy it man. If I was you though I would have cheaped on the m.2 to lesser brand and put that extra 40-50 into a ryzen 5 2600 over 1600. Even though 1600 very capable chip.

Can you return the motherboard where did you buy it from? Most places give you a grace period. I wouldn't buy a cooler. For sure if you get a new PSU to test that issue make sure it isn't the problem get it from bestbuy. I've dine this before and was able to return it no questions asked. Yea I can't blame you throwing cash at something and its not working isn't fun. Do you happen to have a friend who is into PCs and can lend you his PSU to test? Or even help.

When you flipped the switch on your psu was the system powered down? Silly me I totally forgot about that. Yea that sure does make it harder. Did your CPU not come with a cheapo stock cooler? You could always leave the MB in case I suppose and just unplug everything besides CPU cooler, ram and the two power cables needed the CPU power and motherboard power and try it that way instead wasting money on a cooler you later don't need. Unless your local bestbuy sells them and you can abuse the return policy again.

Some of them are for sure. I've met some that are way to knowledgeable to be working at bestbuy. Yes you'd want the cooler you'd not want CPU to overheat as for ram yes as well. Otherwise it won't post.

If it does turn out to be PSU you can always invoke the warranty with evga if its still good, get a replacement.

I honestly wouldn't trust them most their employees aren't knowledgeable and they send repairs that are major offsite. My dad once used them when I was away in different state. They told him he had a bad motherboard, and that was not the case it was just a bad ram stick. I would take your system apart completely, take mb and PSU out of the case. Put it on a box and only connect the power for the CPU and motherboard and try to boot. If this doesn't work I'd serisouly try a new PSU. My first build with a rosevill hive it literly gave power to my system but not the CPU because their was something wrong with it's power delivery. The moment I connected new unit it worked. Bestbuy gives 30 day return policy no question asked nothing to lose to try. Reason I recommend taking out system also to make sure you eliminate all other possibilities of issues. Good luck man sorry to hear you got a new board and it didn't work. Hope you can return it.

Good choice the RX 580 can be found used pretty cheap. I seen them as low as 110. Gtx 1060 prob be similar pricing also good choice both be a huge upgrade over the RX 560. I'd stay away from the RX 480 unless you find a great deal used and a good aftermarket version. I had a MSI armor oc in my first build that thing was loud and hot like crazy. You can also sell off the RX 560 recoup some of the money. Good luck man.

+1 for completing the build. The wiring can use some work. Good choice going with a ssd boot drive, I'd get a second drive when you can for storage. Good choice going with a 8gb RX 570. I went with a 4gb, regret it now run into some vram limits. Enjoy it.

Was the system off when you flipped switch on psu? I once had a similar issue to you. I was able to turn on my system I'd see things power on, but it would never have any display. So I though OK GPU bad I put it in a spare PC and it worked fine. So than I though OK motherboard is dead, I got a new one and turns out it wasn't the case. I finally went to micro center picked up a PSU and moment I used that new one my machine worked. So if you have a store like micro center or bestbuy near you pick up a PSU and if that doesn't resolve issue than simply return it. I was shocked myself it was a PSU problem since it was providing power. I hope you get it fixed. Good luck. I would for sure try PSU before motherboard, unless you order a new board from amazon or buy it at micro center. Newegg is so difficult to deal with.

Good job on your first build and completing it looks good. The FX-8350 still a capable chip used have one in a build not long ago. Only sad part ever plan to upgrade have to get all new mobo, ram, and CPU. Which is what I ended up doing. Enjoy it man. Welcome to the master race.

He'd be fine with a 500w. I used a 450w with a RX 480 in one my builds. You can always undervolt the cards, which will still allow you keep factory clock speed and lower power, heat. I have my RX 570 is overclocked and undervolted. Running 1300mhz and 970mV.

That's always nice when you can reuse parts. I did same thing when I built my most recent system than slowly changed things. Only thing left from original system is the PSU and WiFi adapter.

Looks good, but for sure get a case. Also when you do get a case try to get a small boot drive. even a 128gb ssd bootdrive, it makes such a big difference its amazing. Should have tried for a used RX 570 over RX 560 would been about same price. I recently got one for 103. Enjoy it man. Stinks about the screws on the old motherboard.

+1 on first build and completing it. I honestly don't know much about Intel parts, so can't say much on the pairing but seems like its a good pair. The PSU is a bit expensive compared to other parts but if you plan upgrade down the line it works or move it to a new build. At least you didn't cheap with a 30 dollar pile of trash like I do always. Enjoy your build, as for the mess to each their own.

Sell that gtx 1050ti. Buy a used RX 570. It be cheaper and way faster. It will consume more power though. But you will probably profit doing the upgrade lol. For sure a ssd even just a boot drive once you use one you will never not want to use one. And yes the cable managment can use some work. Other than that the parts are still very good. I used have a r5 1600 in my first system great CPU oced very well. Hope you been enjoying your build.

Honestly if your happy with it, I wouldn't worry to much about it. Eventually if you wanted you could get a modular PSU which help with cables a lot. Also a case with a PSU shroud. But like I said if it sits on floor under desk and you are happy nothing to worry about. Just enjoy it.

Good job on completing your first build. I would do some work on the wiring. If your looking for a cheap amazing card the RX 570 is great. Can be found used in some markets for 70-90. Will dominate the 950. Also if you find a RX 580 for little more, it even better. I personally rocking a RX 570 dominates AAA games at 1080p. Enjoy your build exciting at first eventually you realize what a money sink it is, never happy always want to upgrade more, at least from my experience.

Good job on your first build. That cooler should be pretty good. The RX 570 is very capable 1080p card, but with that CPU for sure want a better one. I would work on the wiring. That's a lot of wire at the front.

Nice build. I am going guess you love green. Are you planning eventually upgrade the GPU for the 1440p monitor? Or is the 1060 doing just fine? I know that card is more aimed at 1080p gaming.

Very nice build, clean looking too. I love that RAM wish I had gone for some RGB ram now. I supose I can always sell off current and get some RGB once. We essentially got same build :D Just did mine recently with the R5 2600 and Sapphire RX 570 , sadly not 8GB.

Yea I got one of those as upgrade on my first build. I didn't want recommend micro center to him because they really are a few and far apart. I am lucky to live 30 minutes from two. But not everyone is that lucky. But yes that CPU is amazing had it at 4ghz all cores.

nice build good job for completing your first build. I remember using a 2200G was a good CPU, but if you had the 1060 from start I would have gone with a ryzen 5 1600 they can be had for same price you paid for your 2200g, even less maybe used. Looks very clean I though for a second you had a whole in your case lol, but reflection of light is so strong. Enjoy it man.

Nice build, looks clean. Good choice going with a 144hz monitor. Prices back than were sure high. I build my first system around December 2018 and remember paying so much more. Just built a system recently and was so much cheaper. Enjoy it man. I wish I could build PCs night and day its so much fun, but wallet won't allow it.

I am guessing it was because I had newest drivers installed and this was literly a fresh build PC. Someone else had returned it too. So I got it open box for 220 at micro center. I got a RX 570 now. Planning to buy a second hand 1070 they super cheap now and great 1440p cards for 60+ frames. I can even sell off old rx 570 to minimize cost.

Thank you I also noticed it was on Tier A list of PSU's. Which is a great thing too. I currently use a cheap 30 buck insignia 550w 80+ bronze from bestbuy. I had in my old FX build. So far good, but I plan to upgrade GPU in December, so might as well get this PSU with it. How's your 1660TI? do you mostly play in 1440p or 1080p? I had one of these for like 2 days, from micro center got it open box for 220. But some reason frames were all over dropping 20s at a time. Returned it for a weaker GPU, regret that now. But used extra cash to do other upgrades.

I remember my first build started with the ryzen 2 2200g. Didn't even have a GPU was so happy to have it. Than upgraded to budget RX 480. And eventually a ryzen 5 1600 with gtx 1070. Good call not cheaping on cpu right now and going with 16gb ram. Enjoy it man and hope you find a great deal on a gpu. A RX 570 used could run you like 70-90 depending on your market and would provide excellent 1080p performance. I use one in my new build. Which is very low budget oriented. Also noticed you mentioned some old PCs you have. See what works in them and sell it. You be surprised how much it could help. I was able sell off some old 2012 stuff and netted 130 towards new build. Noticed in your bios picture memory running at 2133mhz see if in bios you can set the 3000mhz profile ryzen loves speedy ram.

Good looking built, I would have personally gone with a cheaper case like in 40s and did a ryzen 5 1600 and a cheap b450 board that would have given you a 6c 12t CPU last longer, and ability to overclock. The RX 570 is amazing value card using one in my current build.

Great budget 1080p gamer. Good choice on the 8gb vram card, I wish i had ton that route. But I'll upgrade to RX 5700 and a nice monitor like yours eventually. Enjoy it.

Nice build. I had a gammax 400 on a ryzen 5 1600 at 4ghz all cores and it was pretty good at cooling. I just don't like large cooler looks, rather go with an aio. Hope she enjoys it, I couldn't find a white card also though about plasti dipping the GPU shroud but decides too much pain. She is for sure going need storage later.
