Such a well thought out build. The detail put into the fans, M.2 heatsink, and GPU backplate in my opinion should get this sucker featured. You should be very proud of this! +1

Love the NZXT fans! Personally I would've gone with the NZXT Kraken X62 or X52 Liquid cooler to match the theme, but oh well it still looks great! I just bought a friend that same Hue+ for his birthday and I'm glad I got to see how sexy it is in the S340 before I give it to him today! +1

+1 for kitteh and awesome build!! I totally understand what you're saying with the motherboard. My first build I bought RAM that didn't match the overall theme of the build, drove me bonkers honestly lol. Also, a monitor will pay dividends in terms of comfort!

I agree! Clearly it isn't an easy board to design considering bigger outfits like Asus and MSI haven't produced anything yet. I'm going to wait a bit longer for them to maybe introduce a board, if not I will just deal with no Wi-fi and pick up the Biostar board ($100 isn't too bad). You're welcome, happy gaming!

It is unfortunate Biostar is the only company currently making Mini-ITX boards for AM4, hopefully other companies follow suit soon. Awesome build! You fit a lot of horsepower into a SFF build, plus that GPU is gorgeous! +1

Fantastic build. Do you by chance work for Singularity Computers? This build resembles the kind of work they do in a lot of ways. If not, very professionally done, if I were to ever buy a pre-built system this is what I would pay top dollar for! +1

I think you are mistaken, the top and rear fans are bringing air into the case, and front seems to be exhausting the air. If you were to rotate all chassis fans you would be achieving optimal airflow. The only reason I say this is because your CPU cooler fans is pushing air against the air coming in from the back case fan. If the back case fan was set to exhaust, the CPU cooler would be able to push a lot more air through the heatsink. I absolutely love this build, you nailed the red without going overboard, plus the C70 is one of my favorite cases. +1

CPU: Your CPU is plenty powerful for gaming, no need to upgrade that quite yet. If you don't have plans on doing CPU-heavy tasks like video editing or 3D rendering you should keep this CPU for at least another year. MEMORY: I would add another 8GB of memory to help with newer games that are able to utilize more than 8GB (PUBG, ARK:SE). This is a cheap upgrade (~$50) and can keep your system compatible with new demanding titles.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/M63RsY/kingston-memory-hx316c10fbk28 (This is the same memory in your system, so it would be four identical sticks of RAM) ($62)

MOBO: Your motherboard is fine, no need to upgrade it. Eventually when you upgrade this, you will need a new CPU and Memory. Wait as long as you can. SSD: An SSD can be relatively cheap (120GB for ~$50, 250GB for ~$90) and will be immediately noticeable in the performance of your system. Windows will boot considerably quicker and your games that are installed on the SSD will load menus and servers a lot faster. This does require a OS swap over to the SSD so it's is booting your OS, not the hard drive. However, there are plenty of guides online to accomplish this task.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/3kL7YJ/samsung-internal-hard-drive-mz75e250bam

Samsung is known for having the best SSD's on the market, this is their 250GB variant which would be great for some of your favorite games and to boot windows from. ($108)

PSU: If you want to help that cable management, a modular power supply would be a great place to go (modular allows for using only the necessary cables, not all). This power supply is plenty for you with gold efficiency and excellent ratings.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/sMM323/evga-supernova-g3-550w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-220-g3-0550 ($80)

The key to cable management is to initially route the cables behind the motherboard tray (back of case) then to the rubber grommets (pieces of rubber that can open with a bit of light force) nearest to where the cable plugs into the motherboard/GPU. The goal is to minimize the amount of cables visible on the tempered glass side.

Total: ~$250

I hope this helps, please feel free to message me if you have any other questions!

OH DEAR GOD: Please buy a CPU cooler that isn't that piece of junk. This will allow your CPU to run way cooler while gaming. My personal favorite cooler at the moment is the Cryorig H7.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/93Crxr/cryorig-cpu-cooler-h7

This is a great after-market cooler that looks great and performs great as well. ($35) Additionally, I would add an exhaust fan to the back of the case so some of the hot GPU air can exit out the back while fresh air pours in from the front intake fans.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/GwCrxr/corsair-sp120-rgb-high-performance-520-cfm-120mm-fan-co-9050059-ww

This fan is the same model as the front 3, it costs around $20 and will be very helpful to keep that hot GPU air away from your CPU cooler.

NEW TOTAL: $300-310

I use NZXT's CAM software. It can measure temps on both your CPU and GPU, it has a friendly user-interface as well! Hope this helps!

This .. wow. The photo of the white LED fans up top illuminating the chassis in the darkness is S E X Y. Great build and great photos! +1

One thing I might recommend would be to orient your rear fan to exhaust out the back of the case. It's blowing air onto the memory (usually not a component to have any sort of thermal issues) and pushing the hot air coming from the GPU towards the front of the case while the top exhaust fans try and pull the air up. I'm not sure what your temps are on your GPU, I can't imagine they are very high with all of those fans. So, if you are happy with the temps, disregard this, but it might drop a few C if your GPU is running hotter than you'd like!

Very clever GPU sag fix, is that fishing line? I thought they were streaks from a TG side panel, but sadly Fractal has yet to produce a case with TG. +1

Recommendation: If your PC sits atop a surface allowing it (not carpet, preferably wood) , rotate your PSU so the fan is intaking air from the bottom of the case. This will allow your GPU all of the air being sent in that part of your case from your intake fans. HOWEVER, your GPU runs at 62C, which is an excellent temperature to begin with, so it's not necessary at all.

Also, a set of white-sleeved cables would blow this build through the roof!

I think you've invested in the right areas. That CPU cooler may not be compatible with new socket layouts though (maybe bequiet! has an adapter plate they can send). The SSD is great for OS + a game or two. H440 is a gorgeous case as well. +1

Awesome build! As far as cable management goes, run all of the cables through the backside of the case, try and only show as much cable on the Tempered Glass side as needed, everything else will stow away under the power supply shroud and on the back of the MOBO wall. It takes some practice, but I know you will have some success because your case and PSU allow for great cable management. Regardless +1

  • 37 months ago

Honestly, depending on how long you've had that CPU, and the overclock (if any) it might just be father time wearing down the CPU's ability to disperse the heat it creates. Most of my friends started their rigs with FX-8350's and they've all had to transfer to Intel due to heat issues. One of them had been using a Hyper 212 Evo while the other had a Corsair 240mm AIO on it. I would try re-applying thermal paste if you haven't already, as it tends to spread out over time and eventually evaporates, if that doesn't work it might be time to switch honestly. Hope this helps!
