Default Re: Getting back into the water

Here is my original build breakdown:


AMD RYZEN 5 3600 6-Core 3.6 GHz (4.2 GHz Max Boost)

CoolerMaster MasterLiquid ML240L RGB V2, Close-Loop AIO CPU Liquid Cooler

EVGA 500 BR 100-BR-0500-K1 500W 80 Plus Bronze

WD Blue 4TB 5.4k RPM 64 MB Model # WD40EZRZ

Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 1TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 64-layer 3D NAND

Thermaltake Versa H18 Tempered Glass Black SPCC Micro ATX

CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) CMK16GX4M2D3600C18

AIGO AigoDIY aigo 12cm 120mm Computer PC Cooling Case Fan with LED Halo Ring

(2x of those. Top & rear exhaust fans)

COOLMOON Quiet Edition High Airflow Adjustable Colorful PC Case CPU Computer Cooling with Coolers, Radiators System (3pcs)

Arctic Silver 5 (3.5G Tube)

$885.52 at time of purchase (July 2020) Bought all from

MSI GTX 1650 Super 4GB

$220 or something... at my local Best Buy. So about an $1,100 USD build. Not too shabby IMO for its 1 TB of 3 GIGABIT per second NVME, 4 TB media storage, 6 cores and 12 threads of 4 GHz power and 16 Gigs of DDR4 3600 MHz. Even with liquid cooling and a video card that runs FarCry 5 at Ultra 1080P about 68 - 82 FPS. Oh yea not to mention Liquid Koolin, and Full CustoCheeze RGB to boot!

Here are some pics of the initial build:

I removed the RGB fans from the front bezel. It gets old. At 30 bux for the three of em though, would be a great addition to a kids gaming PC, or anything you'd wanna throw the bling factor at. The RGB patters are quite impressive. Air flow kings they are NOT, but they are pretty much silent and the speed is fully adjustable. The three of em are sitting in my closet right now.

I need to find two 140 MM fans with good static pressure to use on my new 280 (2x140) radiator when that comes. The AIO shown above is a 240 (2x120).
