Description

This is my first PC build ever. for my CPU I went with the Ryzen 1400 quad core cpu, I used the stock cooler for a while but wanted to learn how to overclock so I upgraded to the NZXT X62 REV 2. For memory I have 16 GB of G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-2133. This was chosen for looks and price. My mobo is the MSI B350 Tomahawk. I chose this board because of the great overclocking abilities and fantastic looks. My GPU is the Gigabyte GTX 1050 Ti Windforce Oc. I plan on attempting to overclock this card if it is able to. I went with the Phanteks Eclipse P400 case for great looks, price, and an easy layout to work with, including a power supply shroud and rubber grommets for the cables. I have 1 Tb of storage on a Western Digital Black series HDD. And I went overkill with an 80+ Gold certified fully modular Corsair 550 W PSU. I decided to go overkill on this part of the build so I Knew it would last me years down the road and its fully modular. Neat cables is an absolute must for me. PRIME can handle Arma 3 at medium to high settings above 70 fps and I can play PUBG with ease on high to very high at 1080p. UPDATE: I have finally got around to overclocking my CPU anf pushed it to 3.9 ghz, i could get it to 4.0 ghz but it was unstable. And I have overclocked my 1050 ti even more than the factory overclock using the msi afterburner program. My scores on the valley benchmark have went from 1822 to 1953 and sometimes 2113. This is on ultra settings with Anti-Aliasing set to 4x. I'm yet to overclock my ram but when I do I'm going to aim for 2400 for the first attempt, and if that works I may try 2666, but that may be pushing the limit a bit.

Looks amazing! The kraken is totally overkill, but if you upgrade laterr to a ryzen 7 1700x or 1800x the cpu looker will make for an amazing overclock. How was the p400? Thinking about making a build in one.

It's a great case, really easy to work with and looks great, I would watch Hardwarecanucks review on YouTube of it to get a better idea.

nice man. red and black is the way to go. kraken is so sexy too bad mine only lasted 7months. got the RMA tho but that one took 1 month to get. had to buy a replacement cooler. look at my completed build to and do a shout out thanks.

The build looks very good and clean, but I'd had chosen a couple of parts differently.

First, ryzen loves high frequency memory, and it's usually more difficult to use 4 sticks than 2, so I'd have went with a 2x8 gb kit 2666mhz or higher, for better performance. The other thing is that this build would really use a SSD, load times would be so much shorter.

I think the cooler upgrade could've waited a bit to accomodate the aforementioned changes, but in the end, if it works for you :)

Hope you upgrade soon!

Thanks for the suggestions! I was planning on getting an ssd soon too but it wasn't really in the budget at the time. I plan on getting a smaller one sometime here soon just for windows and a few games. And for the memory I didn't do a lot of research on the compatibility with Ryzen. But i will defiantly upgrade soon and keep this in mind!

Well, for the memory part, you could try to get your hands dirty and overclock them yourself, and see how far they can go. In that case, just beware that it's a longer process than just overclocking the cpu, since you'll have to find the right balance of frequency and timings, aswell as the chips limits.

I suggest you try to research some guide on memory overclocking and apply it, if they can just get up to 2666mhz, I'm pretty sure you'll see good performance boost.

Alright I'll keep that in mind, thanks for the advice and I'll probably post the results on here if I ever get to it!
