Description

This is my first PC build. Build is intended for 4K gaming and to develop my personal software projects. Build is not fully completed yet as I plan to get additional storage, upgrade peripherals and replace stock case fans with something else. I may also add some extra RGB in case but I'm not really into that.

As this is my first build, some of choices may not be the best ones (although I did a plenty of research) but currently everything seems to be working fine. I could've managed cables better, especially on back panel side but i did not want to invest more time in that currently.

I haven't done any overclocking yet. That will come when I fully finish the build. I will then update reviews and temps.

Prices are high but that's how it is in my country unfortunately. :/

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

I think it does a decent job keeping my CPU cool when combined with Noctuas but I don't like the software very much as I'm having an issues with setting fan curves the way I want using CAM software.

Motherboard

A decent board. Had every feature I needed to have and should be good for future OC.

Storage

Boots and runs fast. Expensive though.

Storage

Using as secondary drive, does the job.

Case

I wanted to go for a Meshify C first as I liked the looks but that case was a bit too small for my needs. I considered other variants (like Define R6) but then Meshify S2 came out. So no more compromises! I liked to work with the case, but front panel may annoy some people a bit because of front I/O wires that prevents panel from being fully removed. This is a variant with tinted glass which looks pretty nice in my opinion.

Power Supply

Overkill for my needs but I wanted to be future-proof. No complaints so far.

Case Fan

I would not recommend these if noise is a concern. But they cool well enough I guess. Also they are great for trolling unsuspicious people when turned to full speed.

Monitor

Overall it is not bad, it is great for my productivity needs (better that multi-screen setup) but it does not really have any extras that I would like to have in gaming.

How are your temps in this build? I want to do some watercooling with this case but not sure if the airflow on it is good or not.

I haven't done any overclocking yet nor really run any benchmarks but this is what I get with my current casual use: CPU runs at ~31 degrees idle and ~50-60 degrees while gaming. GPU sits at about 35 degrees idle and goes up to 74 degrees while gaming.

Running on stock case fans for now.

Great build! What configuration do you have your fans in? I assume rad fans = intake, the rest are exhaust?
