Description

This Ryzen based system was built primarily as a video/phot/audio editing rig, while keeping the option to game a little bit open. Being a big Star Wars nerd, I decided to go with a Sith Lord theme for the build.

CPU is overclocked to 4GHz. RAM is running at 3200MHz. Video Card is running at 2100MHz with a memory clock of 9600MHz.

NZXT H500 case was easy to work with and looks good.

Great build, I think your next buy (could be) a better graphics card (say rtx 2070) and an aio cooler to overclock that cpu even farther. And also a hard drive (idk, but their useful) +1

Yeah, I built it primarily for video/photo editing, so I cut back on the graphics card since I didn't need anything too powerful, but it will be upgraded in the future. Eventually I'll also put an AIO liquid cooler on it to push the overclock. 4GHz was as far as I felt comfortable with the stock cooler...any higher and I had to start adding voltage to keep it stable, which started raising the temps.

But what about the Hard-Drive?

It's got a 500GB M.2 NVMe SSD and a 1TB 2.5" SSD...plenty of storage. I don't do mechanical HDDs anymore...at least not internal. I do backup to external HDDs

This is a really nice build. Care to comment on performance just for reference for a build I'm doing?

Thanks. She's leaps and bounds over the off-the-shelf PC I've been running for the past couple years. What kind of info are you looking for?

would this case be good for the x470 gaming plus MOBO? I bought the same processor, and was wondering what kind of PSU issues you had installing, if any?

really nice build why in the world dd you pay $400 for a 1060. You could have gotten a 1070 or 1660 for a around that price.

I didn't...the prices listed come from this website, not what I got them for. The 1060 cost me $300

i recommend downgrading to a gtx 960 2gb video card or just selling it and not haveing one is the ideal.... and using a i9 (i9-7980x) gives good fps in minesweaper sooo make better decisions

My decision was just fine for my intended use. It's not a gaming PC bro...I don't need a top of the line GPU for video/photo editing.

I don't think you should have the CPU overclocked to 4.0 when it has a 4.3 GHz boost at stock. It's basically reducing single core and probably multi core performance. The X CPUs boost to speeds at or very close to the max they are capable of.

That all sounds logical, but I'm getting better benchmark scores with the overclock than I was stock out of the box.

Nice build! However one question. Did u manage having any problems with gettingthe motherboard to fit in the case... I have the exact same mobo with the NZXT H500i, which I believe is identical except having already integrated RGB lighting. However I don't seem to be able to fit the mobo inside it because the rear end fan seems to block the large block with the usb cables on the left side of the mobo (dont know what that part is called)... Thanks

It is a tight fit. I ended up changing out the stock fans so I installed the mobo with no fans and then put the fans in. The fan housing does touch the cover on the I/O portion of the board, but it doesn't cause any issues.

I may be consulting with you as I'm awaiting my parts. I'm building a similar pc to yours minus the video card as I haven't decided yet. I will use my old one until then. I plan to install windows 10 to the M.2 drive. I was wondering how that process will go. What settings in your bios did you need to do? My parts are here...https://pcpartpicker.com/list/g222yX

  • 7 months ago

I have Windows on the M.2 as well...simple process. I installed from a USB drive. Only bios settings you will need to change right away is your RAM. Stock speed is going to be set at 2166MHz...you'll need to enable the XMP 3200MHz profile.
Feel free to hit me up and I'll help out if I can.

I think that you should do an RGB Jedi Order themed build next.
