Lighthouse (My 2nd PC that im actually proud of)

SorryClaire
 Share

Heya, i'm new to LTT Forum (not new to Linus' content at all, have been watching him since the fall of 2016 to today) and i think its a good idea to both introduce myself and my 2nd computer.

 

Self Introduction

I'm Claire, a blue-pink-white-pink-blue flag (MtF) from the country with red-white flag (ill let this server guess :^) ). I'm 18 years of age with crippling addiction to computer advancement since she touches a computer for the first time, which was a Compaq hand-me-downs from my uncle. From then on (that PC lived a pretty short life sadly as my dad needs portability for his work), Ive dabbled in many hardwares from a pentium and centrino mobile chip, haswell based CPU, A, FX, Ryzen series AMD chips, and few graphics cards (also god-only-knows amount of exynos). Other things im obsessed with is cars going fast (Open or closed wheels, i like em both), peripherals, and stocks. If you want to talk, im available at a lot of platform, links in my profile.

 

The Lighthouse Itself

The thing is, I've been quite broke and cant afford any form of good computers until 2 years ago at around December 2019. I had a budget about a 1000$, and Zen 2 was still a hot ticket item thats sold at above MSRP. So with that in mind, here is Lighthouse.

 

Its Rocking:

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 at stock speed (Only stable at 3.8GHz with 1.32 volts, so i decided to take the stock route)

Geil Evo Potenza Zen Edition 2x8GB @ 2666, at 2800MHz, CAS 17 at 1.35V (zenplusmemorycontroller.png)

Galax GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, at +125MHz GPU Overclock and +700 Memory Overclock
480GB Sandisk SSD Plus + 2TB Seagate SkyHawk Surveillance Drive

Corsair CX550 Gray Label

Cubegaming VRED Black

1 dinky 120mm fans thats included with the case

Windows 10 Pro

Looks good!

To be honest, when I saw the title of "Lighthouse" I expected to open this thread to either see:

- A PC filled with a lot of RGB

- A PC (case) with red/white tape like those typical lighthouses by the sea

My guess goes to Indonesia (whose flag is not to be confused with Monaco or Poland)

I honestly picked lighthouse because of how i think of it as my new digital home. My favorite movie is Song of The Sea, and both main protagonists live in a lighthouse off the coast of Ireland, so i think the name "lighthouse" as fitting.

ay neighbour!

 

feedback:

- sideways AMD spire, but that requires unscrewing the fan and rotate it by 90 degree, because AM4 mount cant rotate 90 degrees

- some molex connector near the 24-pin i think that can be hidden behind the tray(?)

- i would tidy up the front panel IO, and maybe put some electrical tape on the green PCB (but it leaves sticky residue so maybe don't do that)

 

overall, very simple build, much clean

-sigh- feeling like I'm being too negative lately

I never put my cpu stickers like it's 2001. Intel inside! (who cares).

Congratz on your build, i had the same fan like that, it's not good to be honest, given your very limited airflow, i would suggest adding another fan or two for the intake.

I can tell. Im having horrible time maintaining 70c on my GPU (it goes up to 85 99% of the time), and rn i have the side panel completely off. Im saving up for some NH-U12S and some fans to go with the case.

I used to play F1 games up to 2019, kinda gave up as i feel ive plateau'd. Might go back with a full on sim rig, dad is up for the challenge (he's also a sim lover, addicted to GT4 on PS2)

Welp kind of really old post reply, but I'd get a better case with the option to add fans on front, also can be another CubeGaming (welp it's cheap, yet effective than nothing). Better negative airflow is better than 'better' CPU cooler I guess.

Humor me, as you should do.

Really depends on your money tbh, I'd get the quality one if the money is there. That Focus G includes quality fans + white LED, which should be good deal.

 

Although, tbh? Even my brother's PC (1500X, 1050Ti) using those 'cheapo' 2x 120mm Zalman black-white fan on front + 80mm random case fan (from an old PC) on the back, barely heard any noise at all, PC distance from my ear, not even reaching 30 cm.

 

And that Cabazon looks kinda good on your setup, especially with additional white LED fans.

 

Order it online with extra wood packaging than waiting for the certificate, I guess? Safer that way anyway.

Humor me, as you should do.
