So last week, I built my first pc together with my brother. Look at the pretty lights!

    I don't know .... seems there's too much PC inside that desk lamp.

    That is a fractal design case, they usually don't have windows?

    For 100%, do some more cable cleaning.

    Some specs:
    * Asus ROG B450-F mobo
    * AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
    * AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT
    * Kingston 1TB M.2 SSD
    * 2x 2TB WD Blue HDD (these are setup in RAID 0)
    * 4x 8GB HyperX Predator DDR4 RAM

    Psu is 1000x overkill. But it's better this way than to cheap out.

    Why B450 when B550 is out 🤔

    Is it all RGB?

    @electrineer could be planning to upgrade to a beasty GPU in the future.

    @frogstair No, only the case fans, the CPU fan and the ASUS ROG logo on the motherboard. Going all out on RGB (e.g. RGB RAM, ...) was a bit too expensive.

    @electrineer well I plan for this build to last my about 5-6 years, and the site I bought parts had didn't have anything except this that was at least 750W (min. requirement for the RX 5700 XT), so I just rolled with it. It'll probably come in handy in the future when I decide to buy a new GPU.

    There was a discount on the B450-F, and it sufficed the requirements for this build, so that's why I bought it

    @theuser That's on the list for next weekend, no worries

    @GXGOW 750W would have room to add another 5700xt to the system, assuming a good quality psu. The recommendations have a lot of headroom.
