Description

As a digital designer and Architect, it is important that I have the tools at my disposal that allow me to articulate my ideas and thoughts, so I took this opportunity to invest and build a new personal computer, then complete all the build on camera.

Made a video documenting the build; https://youtu.be/rUW_d1zjn-4

The computer consists of;

CPU – AMD, Ryzen 2700x 8 Core, 16 Thread Cooler – Be Quiet, Blackrock Pro 4 Air cooler Heat Sync Motherboard – Gigabyte Aorus, B450 Pro Wifi Memory – Corsair, 16GB Vengance Black RGB Fast Storage – WD, 500GB m.2 SSD Deep Storage – Seagate, Barracuda 4TB 5400RPM HDD GPU – Nvidia, RTX 2060 6GB Founders Edition Case – NZXT, h500 PSU – Corsair, 550w 80+ Gold Efficiency, Non-Modular

How much did the RTX 2060 FE run you? I feel like Nvidia's website has been sold out for a while now.

Hey, I picked it up from the Chinese eBay, taobao, from a seller in mainland China which ran me about ¥3500, which ends up being about £400 or £500 usd. Not the cheapest, but all the aftermarket cards look like crap compared with the FE, IMO.

Hey thanks for the support, they are actually just screenshots from the video I made, filmed on the DJI Osmo pocket. Tiny little gimbal stabilised 4K camera.

Love this build it is very neat. The only complaint is that because it is so neet the one cable that is in front of the white bar makes my OCD go nuts.

Got ya! Thanks for the feedback! It was a deliberate decision to pull the 24pin infront of the white bar, as I dont have any fans or rads up in the front. I wanted to fill out the space with something so thought I would pull that cable round and add the fake plant and 3D printed butterfly. I also like the aesthetic of conduits, hardlined and soft tubed water cooling, but couldnt afford it, and that one cable makes me feel like I am doing it somehow... Haha, keep on!

unrelated but i got an asus prime x470 pro motherboard, do i need a wifi adapter for that?

Maybe, unless it is stated on your board list of features, you will probably need to buy something like a PCIE WiFi adapater which won’t set you back so much.

Amazing build! Going to try to replicate it as much as possible in my own build.

I find this build very satisfying. Have picked out the same CPU cooler and RAM but there's not enough clearance with the fans and ram how are the CPU temps without the fans(and did you move the fans up so the ram fits)?

Thanks for the support - I couldn’t get the second cooler fan to fit at all even if I moved it up, so I just left it aside. Only touching 30c on idle and 60c under my most intense work loads, so the mass of the cooler by itself is doing most of the work for me.

That's nice to know, thanks. Have you thought about placing the second fan on the left side of the cooler close to the exhaust one, or instead of it? I wonder if the temps would change even a little bit.

I hadn’t thought about this. Going to give it a try and I’ll let you know what happens.

I did some research, there's not much difference. You're good to go with the middle fan and it looks way better.

Awesome photos! Quick question. Could you fit another 2 sticks of ram? It looks like they just might fight. Considering getting the DRP4 myself.

I’ve been thinking about this myself but haven’t made the effort yet to dismantle it all to test. I have a feeling it should be okay but with very minimal clearance.

Yeah I had to pay 30% more than retail in order to pick one up. Worth it though, looks excellent

Have you had any problems with the motherboard ? I’ve read some pretty nasty reviews . Can it handle the 2700x and a RTX 2060 without overheating ? I also read this motherboard is not made for any type of overclocking ? Please help ?

It makes sense that you're a designer, this build speaks for itself. Sleek, simple, classy. A piece of modern art. Thank you.
