Joining the AMD Ryzen team!

Joining the AMD team after many, many years of being on the Intel team. This system is only going to be used for games as I have a 4th gen i5 Dell Optiplex 9020 for normal everyday stuff (uses less power!). Anyways, here is what I purchased/using for my build.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition

MOBO: Asus TUF B450M-Plus Gaming

RAM: 16GB G.Skill FlareX Series for AMD DDR4 3200 CL16 (8GBx2)

PSU: Corsair RM550x 80+ Gold full modular

GPU: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Windforce 2X 8GB (Rev 1.0)

CASE: Black inverted case that I have, doesn't have any front USB 3 though, but that is okay, 2x 120mm front intake fans, 1x 140mm side intake fan (blowing right onto video card), 1x 120mm rear exhaust fan

SSD/HDD: 250GB Kingston HyperX SSD, 1TB Western Digital Blue HDD

CD/DVD: LG Blu-Ray burner

MONITOR: Acer 1080p 60Hz 27"

I've included some of my benchmark numbers, the system is not overclocked. The case is only going to be temporary until I find myself a nice blue case with good airflow that I like, which is actually quite hard to find. This case I have had for a number of years and like the fact that you can actually see the fan on the video card instead of the back plate and I think case manufactures should make more cases like this. I have been trying to find a good one like this with cable management, but I can't find any or find any that don't cost an arm and a leg.

That's a pretty nice system! Should play most games in 1080p at ultra settings no sweat. I've noticed from seeing posts around these forums that people seem to be having a lot of luck pushing those 3600's quite a bit so you should have decent headroom if you decide to OC at some point.

As far as cases go, that doesn't look like a bad case. I'm personally using the Phanteks P400S. It has airflow issues due to the solid front cover, so I cut large shapes out of it and hot-glued mesh to it to help with dust. It has tons of airflow now and is considerably cheaper than a lot of other higher end cases. Once you decide on a case and get everything swapped over you should give us more pics

pretty close to what I recommend for a gaming/daily driver. Should be pretty happy with it.

I would recommend a second SSD for game/daily file storage and relegate the HDD to long term storage/movies/music type stuff. BX500 and MX500 are outstanding and a good price for 1TB.
