    If you are referring to the case fans, they are the Corsair Quiet Series AF120 with white LED lights. If you are referring to the CPU cooler, it is the Corsair H115i Pro RGB. 280mm radiator
  2. I would imagine with the cooling system I Installed I should easily be able to hit max turbo speeds good. So I have indeed been living under a rock then. Thank you all so much for the info!
  3. Oh good I was havin a panic!
  4. Hey all. So just completed a build (See Operation: Jarvis in build logs) Ryzen 5 2600X I understand has a base clock of 3.6, turbo up to 4.2. I went to this cpu from a phenom II x4 840 with 3.2ghz. And it was always at 3.2, at idle or under load. Heres my confusion: Cinebench R20 shows my cpu as a base clock of 3.8ghz Idling, doing nothing, the clock speeds about 2.2Ghz. Without changing anything in the bios other than the DOCP for running my ram at 3200mhz, I see the clock speeds go to its advertised 4.2ghz when in a game like Division. Is it supposed to fluctuate from 2.2ghz to 4.2ghz? Is this normal characteristic of the ryzen platform? Have I been living under a rock this long? Lol. Thanks

    A higher end GPU will be the next upgrade! The RX570 was taken out of OG (Previous build)

Learned so much from all of you, cant wait to see what this thing can do!
  7. Posting in the build log tomorrow, but here it is!
  8. Thanks again for all your help dude! I promise I will have pictures of the finished product by the end of the weekend! Case came in yesterday, 2 more pieces to pick up on saturday!
  9. Yeah so memexpres has an open box deal on the rm850x white, I can pick it up for less than 200. I've gone online to read the user manual and it doesnt give you any imagery on installing PCIe cables, it just says plug in the pcie cables that's all I just dont wanna fry the brand new system, which I should mention will be done this weekend
  10. Hey so I am picking this up from memexpress on saturday, and I wanted to ask this before I build. My GPU is an 8 pin plug, and I dont know where I would be plugging in on the PSU. Is it 1 or 2? Thank you.
  11. Well cablemod is selling the white cables for 75 dollars canadian which isnt bad, so if I got the black psu with the cablemods it would be roughly 10 bucks more than going with the white psu. At the end of the day, all these parts will eventually make their way into a NZXT h500i case which has the panel to hide the psu and hard drive bays, so colour of the psu isnt a huge deal
  12. Actually that's not a bad idea. Ima cancel the order on amazon and do that. Maybe pick up a low capacity m.2 SSD to run the OS on too while I'm at it. If I have the slots I might as well use them!
  13. Suprisingly that's who is selling the 750 and 650 for the same price haha. Amazon has the 2700 on 10 bucks cheaper and I just ordered the white cables today the front panel of my case has yellow trim so im thinking I use my automotive skills and do a nice white platinum paint on the yellow parts
  14. Cool maybe I will wait, But I also don't mind going with Ryzen 2nd gen. In my area the rm650x and rm750x are currently selling for the same price so.... 750? Lol. If I can deal with a 2nd gen ryzen this build can be up and running in about 8 days. So that's exciting
  15. I've been hearing a lot about the new Ryzen 3000 series kits, and while I'm not completely opposed to waiting, I havent heard what its compatibility will be like on X470 chipsets, if a BIOS update would be required, which I have never done and heard it can be a nightmare. I am still very new to a lot of the advanced terminology and workings of the PC, things like single and hyper threading, nm manufacturing processes, timings, all those things Linus talks about in his videos is another language to me and I am trying to figure out how to learn Also wouldnt mind learning about overclocking, what it does and maybe some programming for dummies on the side
