I've shared it elsewhere, but figured I'd add mine to the build list. It has taken me close to 8 years to get it to this point, buying used parts here and there to get me by, but the last 2 years I have made a bit to finally get some new components and finally finish off this build. Its fairly obsolete at this point, but I am more of a retro/ casual gamer, and not an online gamer unless its Diablo 3 or Minecraft off a friends server. Did my best to keep things as neat and clean as possible. System will pretty much does what I want it to do, even runs Autocad flawlessly now with the RX580 in place over the dodgy R7/360 I had before that i tried overclocking, and probably damaged, but ran okay on a bit under stock clocks.. System now seems to have decent airflow and temps. Case temp at idle is 23C, pops up to 44C when both the CPU and GPU are wound up, probably be better if the MoBo supported PWM fans on the headers, only the CPU Cooler is PWM. I had to mod the CPU cooler a bit, had to polish and level the base to make better contact with the CPU, CPU seems to be 21C idle and ive seen 45C fully loaded. GPU Idle is 35 and peaks at 67 with my current game running (Skyrim on ultra, not HD Skryim). So she may not be a Ryzen powered, 1080TI FPS Screaming war machine but for an older build on a disabled mans income, it fits the ticket and shows, building a system slowly can still achieve decent if not great results.

3DMark Timespy in Demo Mode score was 4150 as my best, 30 FPS seems to be all it has for 2k Resolution, unchangeable for demo version. oddly the Processor is where it gets hit on Physics with a 15-18 FPS..

On to the build!
