My most recent full build!

Case: Phanteks P350x Eclipse RGB
Motherboard: Asus x470-f Gaming
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600x
GPU: EVGA 2060 Super > (Replaced with Gigabyte RX 5700xt due to 2060 failure)
RAM Corsair LPX 16GB 3200Mhz
CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster 212 Black Edition (replaced stock fan with Noctua)
Storage: Samsung 970 Evo Plus m.2 NVME 250GB (Waiting on my WD 1TB m.2)
OS: Windows 10 most current build + StartIsBack because the Windows 10 start menu is awful lol

I had to get a new desk, monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, so I had to skip a few things, wanted to go 3rd Gen Ryzen,
but it wasn't in the budget lol, I could afford it now but I didn't wanna wait, so I'll wait til later on when I upgrade the motherboard.
The 5700xt is PCIe 4.0 though so I shouldn't need to upgrade that for quite a while.

All the parts:


Part way there:


IT POSTS!:


Desktop and Aida 64 readings, SensorPanel is set up:





(Will update with more current images once I get off my lazy ass and clean my desk, I've added more lights though, I'm in the process of modifying the front panel, and I also got rid of a few airflow dead zones.)

I don't have plans for this really. Might drop a 3600 in there but really, this PC is now used more as a work horse instead of a gaming machine.

Decided to upgrade my CPU from the 1600x that I got on release to the 3600. I noticed an 40FPS increase in PUBG so I say that's £180 well spent. Ofc, I set out to break the damn thing as soon as I get it so It's had a light OC of 4.25Ghz on all cores. Without mad tinkering, it wont go further but I'm fairly happy with this. Benchmarks and other stuff for the nerds

IDSEN from Ikea

It's the first bit of furniture that I've bought from Ikea. It has a higher price tag than what most would buy from Ikea but I 100% recommend the desk if you're looking for something that is going to last for over 5 years. I've had it now for nearly a year and it's held up beautifully. I do have a desk mat on it to keep the surface clean of scratches but I've stood on the desk and there's yet to be any sign of weakness from it.
