First build, ryzen 3600 critique

Hi guys,
First time builder here. Wanted some feedback on my setup.

- fractal design focus G case

- Ryzen 3600

-noctua U12S SE-AM4

-MSI X570 pro carbon wifi- was supposed to get the gaming edge wifi, but micro center screwed up and accidentally gave me an upgrade... i cannot complain, getting a $250 mobo for $169.

-g.Skill ripjaws V F4-3200C16D-16GVKB 16-18-18-38

-Samsung 970 evo m.2 SSD 500GB

Asus rog strix OC 1660TI

-EVGA G3 650w power supply

only area where i wish i had done more research is with the ram choice. Fortunately its using the samsung B die, and i should be able to squeeze out better timings in the future.

Was aiming for a sub $1100 PC and i was able to succeed

Looks good,first build and no issues that is a good start.I have seen some pretty bad first attempts and yours is not one of them.
One thing I would test is on cases with open vents in the top and no fans,I find it disturbs the airflow through the case.I would look at the vrm temp the way you have it then block the top 2 vents off and do the same.If you have any spare fans install one in the top blowing down on the vrm heat sinks.
Airflow is always up for debate but gives you something to mess with if you want.

Thank you. I was definitely nervous building it, but it's a lot easier than i thought.
I willd definitely check that airflow issue out. My work always has spare pc components getting tossed, I'll see if i can get some 120mm fans from them to test with.

You were pretty lucky both with the RAM and motherboard...


Fractal really needs an updated Focus G case :S
It's missing minor things such as cable grommets , easily accessible bottom filter, a second USB 3.0 port instead of one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 (basically you waste one port from each header), and slotted rear fan mount.



Right now the top aesthetic / "newness" contender at <$79 is the Phanteks P400A but the Meshify C is currently selling for ~$67 which is well worth the price. The minor price increase over the Focus G would have been worth it unless you needed 5.25" bays.

In regards to the case, i agree. I kinda jumped the gun with that one, i wanted the meshify, but due to ordering from Amazon and wanted to get all my parts in asap, i got my second choice,impatience on my part.
The grommetless through holes aren't that bad actually, the metal is rolled in that area, and the risk of cutting wires are slim.

As to the motherboard, your 100% right. The gaming pro motherboard is actually pretty bad with VRM temps.
Havent heard many things about the carbon, both good or bad. But it's stable and my temps are showing normal on hwmonitor.

The ram prices kinda shocked me, and i went with the cheapest 3200 speed ram i could, since the ideal speed ram kits are $180+.

Do you have any recommendations once i decide to move up in ram quality?

I think it's better to upgrade the CPU to a Ryzen 7 (which has all cores enabled in the CCX) in the future than to mess about with RAM.


X570 Pro Carbon is using 10x 56A Ubiq QA3111 Dual-N Fets (powerblocks that integrate high+ low side mosfets) instead of 8x Onsemi discrete mosfets on Edge / Gaming Plus. This means they aren't as good as powerstages but better than discrete mosfets. The only problem with the X570 Pro Carbon is the pricing (should've been cheaper given the Aorus Elite/Asus TUF/Asrock Steel Legend) and the VRM heatsink is pretty bad in terms of area and the plastic covers. It has intel LAN , ALC1220, wifi Ax, USB 3.1 gen 2 type C, etc. The other vendor boards at $250 have SLI support and the X570 Pro Carbon doesn't because it's using a 4 layer PCB that can't be certified SLI support with PCie 4.0.


If you can get it I would try to get the AIO promotion that MSI has. You already saved a lot of money, but it is worth a shot.

The SSD you bought is way overpriced and you could have gotten an SSD almost as good for much less so you should have asked before buying

As for the PSU you should be aware that it has a problem with fan noise when its used in eco mode

Not really sure how much cheaper an m.2 SSD could have been, I got it for $79 on an Amazon sale.
But even so, i wanted a samsung drive due to their reliability and much higher performance.

I know crucial mx500 is the new hottness, and ill probably give that one a try when i need another ssd
