Hi everyone,


I will start a build worklog as soon as I receive my missing components for my new rig.


List of the components :

- (received) Cooler Master MasterCase 5t

- (received) Cooler Master v1200 Platinum note: unfortunately, the re-sellers in my country couldn't get the Cooler Master MasterWatt Maker 1200 Titanium

- (received) MSI X370 XPower Gaming Titanium

- (received) AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

- (received) 2x G.Skill Trident Z DDR4-3200 2x16GB (F4-3200C14D-32GTZ) note: total of 64GB

- (received) Samsung SSD 960 EVO M.2 (NVMe) 1TB

- Asus GTX960 STRIX from my old RIG --> waiting for the AMD Radeon RX Vega to be replaced in a crossfire configuration

- (received) PrimoChill copper tubbing ID: 3/8 OD: 1/2

- (received) EKWB EK-XTOP Revo Dual D5 PWM Serial

- (received) Alphacool Eisbecher Lite 150mm Plexi

First, I'll build this rig and test my setup, then I'll replace the GPU as soon as I can order it, then I'll do water cooling, and finally I'll overclock it to the max I can. ;)


See you soon for an update!

First mistake of the build, the CPU WaterBlock.

AM4Ready doesn't mean it will fit... ;) I ordered the AM4 mounting plate, but in the mean time I had to buy a CPU cooler.


Mokona is dubious about air cooling CPU



Alucard oversees the first boot on the 75" TV. Good job, it's working!
