Night Corner [夜角]

Introduction
After what felt like months of researching, I had finally come to a decision on which parts to opt for. This build has been running flawlessly so far with no issues. The building process was enjoyable and fairly straightforward, although I did encounter a few minor problems (mainly due to my stupidity). Cable management was pretty easy too, but the GPU cables were a little stiff which I had to leave positioned weirdly. I also achieved a mild overclock on both the 2600 (3.7GHz@1.15v) and 580 (1500mhz). Overall, I am pleased with the outcome and will consider upgrading in the future.

Part Reviews

-Ryzen 5 2600: Great value CPU, would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a solid performer in any task. Overclocked to 3.8GHz @ 1.15v, with temps at about 40 degrees celsius idle and 62 under load. Stock cooler is great and doesn't look that bad.

MSI B450m Mortar: Design of this board is among the best in the B450 lineup; the BIOS looks the best when compared to other manufacturers. Great VRMs and overall a great mATX motherboard.

Corsair Vengeance RGB 2x8gb @3000mhz: It's RGB and performs well. Overclocked to 3200mhz.

Crucial MX500 250gb: One of the best budget SSDs on the market right now. Boot up times are less than 10 seconds and gives me no time to go downstairs for a bite.

WD Blue 1TB: Plenty of storage for my games and other applications.

Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 8gb: This card is simply amazing. It has a well designed backplate and a SAPPHIRE logo that is RGB. You can use the Sapphire Trixx software to customise the RGB of the logo, as well as customise the fan speeds and clocks. I would highly suggest getting this card if you're opting for a 580. Overclocked to 1500mhz

NZXT H400i: Probably the best mATX case out there. Cable management was fairly easy with the included velcro straps and routes for cables. Airflow is great in this and the tempered glass makes the build stand out even more. Highly recommended.

NZXT E500: Solid PSU with high quality cables

Rival 100: Comfortable and a good mouse overall.

Drevo Tyrfing(Outemu Brown): Build quality of this keyboard is very well made and is satisfying to type on. A good compact option for those who want it.
