Description

 My first Ryzen build. Used primarily for gaming, with some dabbling in 3D rendering. Started with the Phanteks Eclipse P400 for the case, decided I wasn't happy with the airflow and space, so I switched the build over to a P600 Hybrid case. Temps at idle are 32 for CPU and 25 for GPU. Under load the CPU hasn't gone above 60 but once. During a couple of tests the GPU has reached 72 but during normal gaming use with maxed settings on a monitor with a 21:9 ratio at 1440p, it usually hangs around 58-62. CPU is only auto-clocked to just over 4 Ghz, (could go higher but didn't have a need and the chipset on the motherboard probably wouldn't have liked it under extended use.) GPU is sitting at the factory clock setting from EVGA, plans to water cool are in the works, (just because I want to really,) and I will most likely push that further once it is. The graphics card is side-mounted because this case allowed for it to be and still maintain proper airflow, (not being choked against the side panel,) and I wanted to keep the chipset cooler being a X470 with a 3rd Gen Ryzen. 
 The only real thing that was a complaint was with the case, using plastic sliding shields to cover cables instead of rubber grommets, but the plastic shields aren't that bad if there aren't too many things passing through them. All in all these components were quite compatible and the case was fun to build in and the sound dampening panels actually do there job, (the only muffle the fans, it isn't an extreme difference,) without cutting really any airflow. I did use a Ryzen 5 2400G I have for an HTPC build to update the bios, which was the only thing that could have been a short set back.

the build just looks beautiful & the P600 Hybrid case is most definitely one of my favorites if not the best case out there.+1

Thank you! The push-pull is really just because I had some Corsair ML 140mm's before I bought the P600, and that came with three 140's so I just loaded it up. I actually just pulled the two extra out to put in a HTPC build I did and the only difference I've noticed is the fans on the rad do hit higher rpms than before but it isn't a noticeable difference. The GPU I've got is a dual slot at 40mm thick and it has quite a decent amount of space from the glass. I think 56 would be putting it close but it shouldn't choke it in the P600, the three vertical slots are nice and the air flow in this case should allow for enough intake to be forced across the glass to the card. The riser cable I used was a 90 degree at 30cm long, (which definitely had excess length and is fine if i decide to populate any of the other pcie slots down the road,) but the mount that is included seems to be designed specifically for a phanteks riser card as the one i purchased does not properly seat in it and just kind of sits on top, the gpu is held in place so the only thing the vertical mount included with the case is doing is helping keep the gpu from floating, (which could look interesting as long as the build isn't moved around after.)

Edit: Just tested it with and without the vertical mount included, and it is hardly noticeable unless you are actually looking for that. I did notice the gpu does sag a little towards the end of the card though, but that is only pressure on the case itself.
