Description

This is the PC that I use to help make money as opposed to spending it! It was running an Intel X79 based setup and had been for five years but I decided that I very badly needed to update it and everything was working fine until I moved everything to a new case. But now that I got everything taken care of, the new rig that came out of it may be one of my best yet.

Case - Spent several weeks on deciding on a new case. I eventually landed on the Enthoo Pro M after looking at builds on PC Part Picker and elsewhere and still needed to use my BD-R burner because this is a work PC and there's some clients that still use DVDs and BD-Rs. And so that eliminated a lot of the cases I was looking at.

Power supply - holdover part from previous build. I mean it's a Seasonic X and it's held up for several years now, what more could you need? I may eventually replace it with a Prime but for now no need.

Motherboard - Best B450 board on the market. I was using the MSI Tomahawk but it died on me and I replaced it with this.

CPU - The Ryzen 2600 is bar none the best bang for buck CPU on the market.

RAM - Also holdover from previous build.

GPU - same. I will replace it when I replace the GPU in my primary with a 2070 later this year.

Cooler - One of the best you can get right now that's not a Noctua D15. It's survived several motherboard replacements.

Awesome build! :)

Really liked how you started off your description too. Gave me a good chuckle.

I always enjoy working builds! Was the cooler new with this lot or a holdover? no chance of that 2600 overheating!

I brought the cooler over from a previous build. I got the AM4 bracket for it. Definitely $60 well spent there!

I got the same B450 Mobo recently, and it is a great MOBO for the price. But keep in mind the M.2 Uses 2 SATA ports. So you limit your options to only 4 SATA drives

Yeah I realized that when I got Windows running is that it didn't recognize my BD-R burner so I had to move it to another SATA port. But everything works fine right now.
