Hey PCPP, it's been a while since I posted my pc build and here's the newest addition to my collection.
I started a plan for this build back in July when I was lucky to get my hands on the new Ryzen 9 3900x and Asrock X570 Taichi Motherboard while the CPU was out of stock almost everywhere. Then I went ahead and ordered rest of the parts in the following weeks. Unfortunately, one of watercooling parts package was lost in shipping from overseas and I had to wait for almost 2 months to receive them.
I wanted to keep the theme somewhat simple and elegance this time because I have 5 other builds ranging from a full RGB custom watercooled Dual-system Evolv X PC to zero-RGB Noctua Chromax+Meshify C Air Cooled PC and I thought a black and gold color theme'd PC would look pretty cool.
Most of watercooling parts are from Bykski and Barrow. Bykski makes an awesome distro plate for Lian-Li o11 case and they also make Black Metal Hardline Tubes which go really well with Barrow Gold fittings. One thing I didn't like about the distro plate was its DDC pump which is noticeably louder than D5 pumps that I'm familiar with. I might be swapping it out in the future if it bothers me too much.
There are RGB lightings but I actually like it without any lights on. TBH, RGB kind of kills the theme in this situation.
I haven't played with the system too much since it was completed and I left 3900x at stock settings and just OC'd B-die ram kits to 3600mhz. Temps look very promising RTX 2080 staying in mid 30s while gaming and 3900x not going over 75c max while stress testing. I plan to use this system with my racing simulator and maybe for streaming too.
Thanks for looking hope you guys like it.
