#DoYouBuild Prime

I've built this PC for myself back in September 2019. I was a long-time laptop user (MSI GT683R), but decided it's time to switch back to PC, since I started doing more and more heavy tasks on it. If you are interested in seeing me building it, check my video down below and if you enjoyed it, like, comment and subscribe to my channel Technotize where I'll shoot and upload videos of my future builds regularly.


The processor of course it's Ryzen 7 3700x. This CPU does not need any words. My overclock is basic - 4300 MHz on all cores and the Wraith Prism is doing just fine. On idle it's about 45-50 °C, and on heavy load (rendering for example) about 65-70 °C. I'm not gaming much on this PC (yet), so I can't tell more about gaming.

The motherboard is MSI B450M Mortar Titanium. I chose the Titanium version because of the colors and the design, of course. Otherwise - the motherboard is good enough for mATX. It has almost everything a typical ATX motherboard has - 4 DIMM slots, 2 PCI-E, 2 NVMe (the second one is shared though, but that's normal). Amazing VRMs (the same as B450 Tomahawk).

The graphics card it's Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+ 4GB. Got it used from eBay for about $93 USD back in July 2019, which was a good deal back then (at the current market prices as well). For casual gaming is good enough. For playback on video editing (Premiere Pro or After Effects) it's struggling on heavy effects, but that's typical.

The case is In-Win 101. I'm so In-Love in this case, that I decided to upgrade all the PCs at the office with this one. For example - my other build Arctic_Cool (video of the build down below).


The PSU is from SeaSonic. They are one of the best PSU manufacturers (not brands - manufacturers), so yeah - they are reliable. This one is 650W, semi-modular with 80+ Gold efficiency. Very with price/performance value.

The memory (2x8GB) is also second had from eBay for about $65 USD. It's older model from Corsair (Vengeance LED White), but I didn't need fancy RGB for my aesthetics, so these are perfect. The speed is 3000Mhz (overclocked to 3200Mhz, so it's good enough for Ryzen.

For storage I was going with Samsung EVO 970 initially, but then I decided to grab Gigabyte Aorus RGB 512GB. There isn't any difference in speed regarding real life use. Only in synthetic tests Samsung EVO is better. This one has nice heatsink and RGB (which unfortunately I can't control, but's it still okay to have some different colors)

My sleeved cables are from Cooler Master. Some white (Chinese) LED fans (not happy with them, but for now they are okay).

The keyboard Cougar Vantar RGB and is very good. Since I was a long-time laptop user, I was used to scissor-switch type keyboard and this one was the perfect choice. It has nice RGB effects.

The mouse is Asus Cerberus Arctic. Good design, nice feel and everything, but poor paint job... It's started to peel off from less than 6 months use... So I'm going to switch with another one. And I'll never get a white mouse ever again.

The monitor is AOC 32". I had hard time getting used to the size (from 15" laptop to 32" monitor), but few months later everything is back to normal. It's QHD, IPS with 75Hz, so it's fine for me. The ports (display port specifically) on the back are loose and from several plugs-unplugs of the cable it stopped working... That's my only negative (so far).

Also, some Funko Pops inside the case. Obviously, I'm a huge Batman v Superman fan (DC Comics overall), so please no rant from those who dislikes/hate the movie ;)
