Very first build. Don't know much about building computers (nor gaming on one) but learned as much as I can to build this out. Overall happy with it, and proud that I built it myself. I built this to play games particularly Cyberpunk 2077. I was slightly inspired by the neon lights and colors from Blade Runner for the looks.
This build actually cost just a bit more compared to what I originally planned (2600x cpu with 2060 Super gpu) but the 2700 was only 10CAD more, and the 2070 super was on sale. :P I was planning on editing some videos on this anyway so the extra cores are a plus.
Prices arent accurate either. I got some of the parts for less. Overall it was around $100 CAD less.
Running it at stock settings (except memory as I have it set to 3200 Mhz) and at idle (or light internet surfing), cpu temperatures are at around 38-40 Celsius. While playing games temps go up to around 50-60 and up to around high 60s, low 70s while running cinebench. So far the gpu has never really gone above 60 degrees.
Played around with overclocking a bit using Ryzen Master, but I'll probably need a better cpu cooler to do it properly. I do know I can at least do 3.925 GHz @~1.2 volts on the cpu with temps going up to 75 degrees. I know I can push it further with more voltage. It actually sits at just over 3.4Ghz at idle. (unless ryzen master didn't actually revert the setting back to stock). I was having some trouble overclocking (using msi afterburner) the gpu though as it doesn't seem to be that stable even with a very small overclock while playing games (during benchmarks/stress tests it seems fine). It might be that I'm not giving it enough power. Again this is all new to me so I'm still figuring it out and I don't really need the extra performance right now.
Will upgrade with SSDs, some nicer cables, an AIO cooler and MORE RGB in the future. Might also get a gpu support bracket because there is some slight gpu sag. Not that noticeable but I can see it and it annoys me lol. I might also look into some modding because I like the idea of putting a status screen or a looping video inside the case.
If you have any suggestions for ssd's and hdd's let me know! Thinking about 860 Evo's and seagate barracudas.
