Description

The InWin Sirius Loop fans aren't included in the list, but they worked well, and aren't too noisy. The Wifi was awful at first, but I installed drivers/connected to a closer network and it did much better. The NVME drive is fast and stable, and the monitor is an absolute blessing. Just maybe stretching it for 1080p, though. Everything fits well with my white-black theme, too!

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU, and although it's a little expensive, I can't really say anything about the price since I got it as a gift. It's fantastic for gaming, but for most people the regular 3600 should be enough.

Motherboard

This motherboard is good, but I just wish there were more addressable RGB 3-pin headers. There's only 2. But other than that, it houses all my components pretty well and the RGB lights are a small but nice touch.

Memory

A little on the expensive end, but it looks beautiful. Easily the best RGB I have ever seen, and the memory clocks to 3200 just fine with the XMP profile.

Storage

What can I say? It's blazing fast. Love it. I just might get another if I need to.

Storage

I haven't used this drive yet, but it was kind of hard to put in, and the packaging was cheap - frustration-free just means economy - but I have only knocked a star off since I believe that it will run just fine in games. My computer recognized it not as a Seagate Barracuda, but as a string of letters and numbers. At least I can differentiate from my other drive since they are both different capacities.

Video Card

There is some GPU sag, and the ASUS Aura software sucks, a lot. But the cooling is great, and it never throttles or holds back.

Case

Great case for the price already, but I didn't even realize it came with fans! Solid cable management system.

Power Supply

The big 24-ping motherboard cable was a little bit clunky, but it's a great modular PSU at the end of the day. Never failed or was too annoying during the process.

Wireless Network Adapter

Had to install optional drivers and connect to a different network to stop CS:GO from getting up to 700(!) ping and then timing out, but it works. Just like everything else in the build.

Monitor

WOW. It's big, it's beautiful. The bezels are slim, the stand looks gamer-ish but without overstepping the line, and the refresh rate is incredible. However, the box says 165hz but I could only get 144hz out of it in Windows Display settings, and I wouldn't buy a monitor any larger than this for 1080p gaming since you can easily see pixels.

Nice build, what keyboard is that?

Not OP but the keyboard looks like the free keyboard included with most ibuypower or cyberpower pc's. I would recommend the Gskill km360 as a budget option with nice switches and a plain white look that goes well with most systems:

If you're willing to spend a bit more, I'd highly recommend the durgod venus keyoard, it has some of the best sounding stabs for a prebuilt mech keeb and a sexy aluminum build:

Please PM me if you have any other questions about mechanical keyboards!! Cheers!

Did you need to do any sort of BIOS flashback with the motherboard or was it compatible with the 3600x right out of the box?

It worked fine right out of the box. Asrock updated their motherboards already; it says on the website that they support ryzen 3000 now.

I would go for more like a 2060 super or 2070 GPU due to you having a more powerful CPU or a downgrade in CPU

Or keep the CPU and enjoy his system the way it is and later down the road when he upgrades to a more powerful card, the CPU will be enough.

Downgrading a CPU is by far the silliest thing I've read on here. Especially since you've missed the part where the OP states that the CPU was a gift, so he paid nothing for it.

Yeah that's what I was aiming for. I'm planning to wait and save up for RTX 30 series graphics cards.
