My Gaming PC build is ready and great, unintended love for RGBs

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I built a Gaming PC for my birthday and Christmas, I wanted something powerful to run latest games (AC Origins, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Anno, etc), but also good for video encoding and running virtual machines. This is not my first build, I've been building PC's for a long time, but for the last 4 years I've been away and just using an entry/mid level gaming laptop (i7 4710MQ, 16GB Ram, GTX 850M) which was ok for running games at mid/low settings, but with latest games I am feeling it is not enough.

I wanted to be able to play games at max/ultra settings without issues, and hope to have this build to last for at least 3-4 years with games to be released during that time. Currently I will be gaming on 1080 display, but maybe next year I'll upgrade to 1440. Maybe the video card I am choosing is an overkill now, but for games coming in 2 years it will be quite good.

 

When I put down the build specs, I decided that I am not into glass side cases or LED/RGB, and that looks didn't matter for me, but the parts I went with are already RGB, white case and white video card with RGB lighting, and now I love this RGB thing very much, I am already looking for extra fans with RGB and some RGB strips.

 

This PC runs great, I tried some old and new games I have, which I never ran on max graphical settings, and everything runs smooth.

 

I also just love the PSU and the Video card in term of noise levels, they both have their fans off during idle time. But.... The only issue is the CPU fan too noisy for my taste. Currently stayed with the stock AMD one, but this week I'll replace with a Noctua U12S.

While gaming, CPU hits 70 degrees top, is that normal for stock 3600x cooler?

 

Below you can check the build specs, the price is different as where I live things cost more and there is no alternative, it ended costing me around $2k (US vat included), but I will not be able to find something less.

Get weird with it my dude. Welcome to the club. For any pics of it?  It’s a whole new form of artistic expression. Check out my rgb project I just posted a few days ago.

 

I don't understand where the computer is in this huge block 😁

Currently I have default fans that came with the case, 1 front taking air in, and one in the back exhaust. I want to get an extra front for CPU area, and an extra exhaust blowing up.

That is absolutely beautiful. I'm way too lazy to clean my PC often so I'd personally never go as white for my color scheme.
