Halcyon

**Background:


My first build was a jump from an MSI GL62 Laptop , the laptop had some decent parts in it , but was horrible at 1080p gaming , and undervolting was the best i could get away with so, I saved up a bit of money and had really been enjoying what I had seen out of the ryzen lineup. I spent about 800 on the laptop so I set that same budget for a PC , This was what I had come up with

First Build
Knowing pretty little about building my own pc , stuck to air , and as you can see had no idea what I was doing when it came to ram lol. Hence the 3000 stick and 2400 stick. Fricken Noob.

**Why get this build?


Have been working hard the last few years and wanted something flashy to show for my 7th year sobriety anniversary! "Meth was a hell of a drug"

**Performance:

Benchmark Run


Ambient temperature is normally around 65 F in my house , I run a ceiling fan all the time and live in Las Vegas.

  • CPU, GPU idle temperatures: 34-35 C, 39-40 C
  • CPU, GPU load temperatures: 69 C, 63-71 C
  • CPU cores: 5.0GHz
  • GPU cores: 1731 MHz , +66 MHz OC
  • GPU memory: 7000 MHz


My case has been an issue for managing air , will be upgrading it when i get a chance for something with more options for the 360mm radiator.

**Fans configuration:


  • 2x Top Mounted Exhaust Fans
  • 3x Radiator Forward Mounted , Pulling air through radiator will be switching it to push at some point but for now I just give it extra air.
  • 1x Rear Mounted Exhaust
  • PSU Bottom Mounted.

**Corsair AIO:

Massive for the case , but I was worried about cooling the 9900k , however , its seeming my woes should have been in the GPU
