I don't see the point of using pumped liquid cooling on the 1800X. The max long term safe voltage on these will never get them into power dissipation levels high enough to make use of that. The Scythe FUMA offers liquid heatpipe cooling that is near-silent, more than enough cooling umph for Ryzen, with no pump noise or vibration or chance of leaking failure.

Ryzen memory overclocking is challenging with large amounts of memory installed. 2 X 16GB configuration ensures the 32GB quantity with the lowest load on the memory controller possible, improving the chances of running higher speeds. Lower price and a better configuration for this memory controller.

Changed the source of the 960 EVO to amazon instead of outletPC.

Changed to 2TB MX300 instead of 1TB 850 EVO- Better value. Both drives will have the exact same "tangible" performance longevity so it doesn't matter.

Switched to Enterprise Capacity instead of Barracuda Pro. Better quality drive for the same money. The Bara Pro buys a "data recovery warranty" while the enterprise capacity buys a better quality drive. I'd rather just have the better quality drive.

Switched to air cooled GPU - Less hassle, lower cost.

Switched to PSU with all solid caps on the secondaries.


None of the changes above make or break the build. It was fine as is. These are just some things I might do differently based on initial glance.

This is an excellent, balanced build, I have no suggestions!

Hello Talcover01,

You've decided to go for the Phantex Evolv ATX case with tempered glass, you've got great taste as that case will do just fine. I also notice your fan layout especially with two AIO might become problematic to your build in the future. The mid tower is not all that big to warrant a hassle free installation of two AIO's. Also three 120mm fans in the front would be more reliable as they're pulling as much air from a realistically tight choke point. I actually do think a STRIX 1080ti would be more practical or any fan cooled GPU for that manner. As for storage, I would take a gander at a Kingston Savage SSD that will aid yiu well with 960gb of storage capacity, the 40g less might seem like a dealbreaker but you wouldnt be using a whole TB anyway when you're writing/reading on an SSD.

And finally, your RAM seems to be DDR4 3333... is this intentional? Most of us run Ryzen with 3200 as it suffers from stability issues beyond 3200.

To be quite honest.. I didnt know i had 3333 i thought it was 3200... Mustve hit 3333 on the filter by accident

yeah. change the ram, and maybe get a larger capacity PSU, as this should last you for a while (5 years) And maybe you will need more power if you overclock. probably you are fine, but as overkill as it is, a 750 watt psu? I mean, linus sebastion uses a 850 watt
