Description

I wanted to upgrade my old PC - I transferred 2 SSDs, HDD and optical drive from it.

I mainly use this for gaming on my 1440p monitor, also for mid-range 4k gaming on my TV. I didn't want any RGB as I am not a fan of any lights and I wanted a clean look.

First time building the case, so I had some challenges:

  • The PSU cables are pretty thick and hard to bend (especially the motherboard one), so I had to put all of them into the PSU before putting it in the case as there is not much room to work with, I didn't have the tools to put the HDD rack out. It works out, but I should have planned everything before.
  • The RX 5700 XT THICC III is super huge, I should have connected all the cables to the motherboard before putting it in, it covers the SATA part so I had to carefully plug those in.
  • Cable management is pretty bad in the back of the case, I had to really tuck them into the case and put the side of the case on aggressively and screw it on carefully lol. It does have a slight bulge on the side, but it will work.

All of those problems are on my part - it was my first build. In retrospective, I could've built it without a single problem today :)

Everything works perfectly, I just wish I could also turn off the GPU LED, but oh well.

Part Reviews

CPU

Super easy to install, great instructions, works fast. Great price.

Motherboard

Great instructions, perfect size, works great.

Video Card

Super huge, so you really need a big case for it. It works great though!

Case

Pretty great and slick looking case, I love it. It was a bit hard to connect all the cables to the PSU as I did not have any tools to remove the HDD rack.

I would recommend getting 3600 speed ram for a Ryzen because they love high memory speeds.

Other than that fantastic build!
