Description

Hey All! This is my first build, and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. The entire process was a blast, from picking the parts, watching the review videos, through the building process itself. I have yet to do any benchmark tests, but will update that here once i have it. Take a look and let me know what you think!

Part Reviews

CPU

Enough has been said here through other reviews. I have been amazed at the capabilities of this CPU, especially for the price. AMD all day.

Motherboard

Easy to build on and provides all of the features i was looking for! No update required either, ready to go right out of the box.

Memory

Does exactly what it should and looks awesome. Only wish is that the LED's could be synced or set to be static.

Video Card

Quiet, beautiful feature, and plenty of positives. Exactly what i was hoping to find and provides a great price point.

Case

I absolutely love this case. The aesthetics are simple and clean. The included LED fans operate very quietly and add the perfect amount of light to the case. In addition, this was a breeze to build in. Overall, this is an incredible buy for a $50 case!

Power Supply

Does as it should, and came with all necessary cables.

Case Fan

These fans are gorgeous and very quiet. Incredible value for a 3 pack of RCB fans.

I’m a huge fan! I love the looks, it’s very simple but also really clean and has nice features. It was a a breeze to build in also!

This build looks fantastic! Have you tried overclocking yet? I've seen that the stock Ryzen cooler actually does quite well with overclocking so I was thinking maybe it might be a good idea to give it a shot with the B450 mobo you have.

I am digging the woody, I like it when people are able to fit figures in their cases. Price is decent for a good build, I am loving the LED Colors so far. A well deserved +1

And you should also try streaming on it! You have a great CPU and GPU for it!

I think I'm gonna start to try streaming! I kept that in mind while building, so here's to hoping!

Awesome! Twitch? YouTube? Send me the user name and I'll watch the streams!

If you want a decent CPU cooler when overclocking but on a budget for it, I suggest the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L RGB, it has RGB and it's only for 60$.

Is it necessary vs the stock cooler that came with the Ryzen?

Yes it is, I believe Ryzen CPUs do get pretty hot when overclocked.

Love it! I maybe would replace the pop figure, but that is ultimately up to you. Take this with a grain of salt. +2

I wouldn't try overclocking, the motherboard won't supply a good amount of power to overclock, the voltage won't be too high which you would need to go a little higher when overclocking. And the stock cooler for the processor won't be too good, but for the cooling, I don't know about that, I haven't had a Ryzen CPU so I don't know for sure how hot they can get.

So the motherboard you chose was compatible with your Ryzen 5 2600 chip right out of the box? You didn't need to update the bios or anything? Hoping you can confirm for me! I bought a motherboard and the bios isn't compatible and it's a pain in the rear end to update it. Please let me know, thanks!

Correct! It was completely plug and play! No update needed at all.

Very inspiring because I'm looking at the same white case for my first build. This was the first bild I saw using a figure, and I love it! Also really like your desk, it seems to take up zero floor space & looks really stylish.

Yes, if you like the look of the case, go for it! It's a phenomenal case for the price. Thanks for the feedback! I'm really happy with how it has all turned out.

Nice, what's the name of it? Seems ideal for small spaces.
