Description

Resubmitting with better pictures after doing some cable management.

Built early in early June 2019 just after the zen 2 and before the navi announcements, lucky for me too. My particular triple fan rtx card was selling cheap then at msrp 700 usd. At the time of writing it's selling for 789. Got the 2700X for 280. All things considered I think I made out pretty good.

I had a whole lot of fun building, felt more like glorified playtime than anything else it was time consuming but also easy. Only trouble I had was getting the io shield to sit right in the chassis, as such my mobo didn't mount quite right the first time. All ended well after muscling the io shield where it needed to be, I'd be lying if I said I didn't bend it a bit to get it there.

Bios was super easy to understand even as a first time builder. Setting XMP and turning off fan monitoring to clear a fan error that would boot me into bios was a tad challenging but I sprinkled a little google on and it buffed out.

Cable gore was driving me nuts after a few weeks. With the PC well managed and everything around it disheveled I knew amazoning was in order. A day and a pack of cable clips and sleeves later and this is the final result. Hope you enjoy.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Pricey but looks great. Does it's job well.

Motherboard

Excellent layout, ports and headers are easy to get to, two nvme make storage expansion all the easier.

Memory

Very minimalist unlike some other RGB sticks which is a plus. Performs as advertised. Clocks to 3600mhz without issue.

Video Card

Got this for $700 usd on amazon just before navi announcement. Not sure why $700 isn't on the graph here for June 2019 because that's definitely what these were going for. These cards can manage 150+ core and 800+ frequency stably.

Case

Looks concise and clean. Cable channels are really useful, void space is abundant for hiding your ugly bits.

Monitor

Has served me well with my laptop, and is serving me well with my current rig. Plan to upgrade to the MG278Q and keep this as a secondary.

You can forget about overclocking the refresh rate on these. and if you try you might end up damaging the panel. Couldn't handle a +5hz OC, disappointing.

Custom

just dont. don't fit quite right, stock mode is trash for your ears, idk why they even have a toggle for the second feature that should be default. I had to buy an xbox dongle for this to work. Moreover the xbox dongle makes using a ps4 controller with blue tooth impossible even when using DS4. You're money is better off in a 700 series or another headset altogether.

I can’t wait to do my version of this like so many people on the website. Whilst in America because of the 4th of July deals I got a 2080 founders for £633 and it’s brand new. Thanks for the inspiration!

2700x is more than enough for me but the 3600 will be going into my gfs machine whenever I end up building that, if she ever needs it

I am loving this desk cable management! What did you do to secure the power bricks to the bottom of the desk? I've started to realize external cable management is as important as internal lol

Thank you! the bricks are actually just hidden behind the tower above the grommet.

Hello, i saw that you have a rtx 2080 and a 650W PSU?? Is that enough? Because i want to run a Ryzen 7 3700x and a RTX 2070 Super on my 650W PSU (80+ Gold)

If you read your startup guide in your rtx super box it will tell you the minimum. My 2080 fe is rated 650w so I guess it would work.

Have you considered switching the placement of the fans with the stock ones? It would allow more RGB to be shown off

  • 3 months ago

I have, it's actually in most visible placement now. As the tower is angled to the right a tad, and the walking space in the room is to the left of the desk/unit.
