Description

Decided to build a PC after years of using an HP desktop. Tried to keep it under 700 but i didn't stick to that in the end haha. I overclocked the Ryzen 5 1600 to 4.0 GHz at 1.425v (Did the overclock in the bios so voltage in the image isn't accurate) with temps staying under 65c and it seems stable so far after stress tests and Cinebench R20 benchmarks. With this graphics card I was able to get 2010 MHz to 2025MHz at full load overclocked with the Vram overclocked +700 on MSI Afterburner with temps staying under 63c in a semi warm room. I am pleased with this build so far but I will probably need to add at least one more 8gb stick of ram, even though it seems to perform decently well with the single 8gb stick. I'm sure cable management could have been better though haha.

*Update: Added a second stick of 8gb ram, and switched out the Ryzen 5 1600 for the 2600 (mainly because the price of the 2600 was so close to what I paid for the 1600). The 2600 is stable so far at 4.2GHz at around 1.4v

Finally! First build I've seen on this site with a Ryzen 5 1600/RTX 2060 combo! I'm planning on building a pc with that combo too. Any bottlenecks or anything, cuz didn't think there would be any but you never know, especially with older chips. Also, does that 520 watt power supply work out for you too? Didn't think that a 2060 could run on just 520 watts. Good build though.

It doesn't seem to have a bottleneck from what i can tell looking at gpu usage and everything, even with no overclocking done to cpu it seems to pair well with the 2060! I was worried about a bottleneck as well after i ordered everything, but there are people that say it will bottleneck and people that say it won't, but from personal experience i can say they pair very well with each other! but it obviously does perform better with the 2060 with at least a small cpu overclock (such as 3.7 GHz) which was easily achievable for me at stock voltage. The power supply seems to do just fine as well, i haven't noticed any issues so far! The power draw from the 2060 isn't super huge so it should do fine. But I would definitely recommend the Ryzen 5 1600/RTX 2060 combo especially with the price of the 1600 being decently low for a 6 core ryzen cpu at this point in time!

Yeah it is a good combo. The main reason I got it is because I snagged a ryzen 5 1600 for 80 bucks, and for a 6 core chip at 80 bucks, it was a steal!

Nice job with the cable management!

Lol first time I've seen someone with a username close to my name! Great build, Happy gaming!

So the ram corsair c16 (not c15) are compatible with that motherboard? Because in the site of that motherboard to the compatibility part are mentioned only corsair c15 at 3000mhz and not c16

I was worried about that as well after I bought the ram, but there is a d.o.c.p (x.m.p) profile for it on the motherboard bios for 3000mhz which is what I'm running it at and what windows says it's running at as well, so it seems compatible to me haha.
