Ryzen 5 5600X
AMD Zen3 processors are going to crash in the computer market in a few weeks, and the company claims that there will be a significant performance boost in this architecture. The company has redesigned the core layout of these upcoming processors, and from now they are expected to give better performance because the access to cache memory has been improved with better latency. The processor we’ve there on this list is the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X which is a refreshed model of Ryzen 5 3600X with the same number of cores and threads.
These processors give exceptional overclocking power as there you don’t have to worry about the K series, and every processor in this architecture is overclockable. The boost clock of this processor is 4.7 GHz which is 300 MHz more than its predecessor from Zen2 architecture. The competitor of this processor from team blue is Intel Core i5 10600K which is slightly cheaper, but performance-wise AMD R5 5600X wins the race. Previously AMD processors were known for their multi-core performance while Intel leads the game in raw gaming performance. You can do some creative things like the photo or video editing or can use this processor for streaming. In the end, the PCIe Gen4 slots are an advantage in AMD based motherboard which offers double PCIe slots bandwidth while Intel lacks this feature.
MSI B550-A PRO ProSeries
The MSI B550-A ProSeries motherboard is one of the cheapest options that we can consider for this build as it comes with cost-effective controllers but doesn’t compromise on the quality of the product. The PCB of this motherboard is colored in black while it has some white and grey lines printed coming from one edge and going toward the other. The B550 chipset is the latest entry from AMD, and these motherboards can easily handle the processor like the one on which we are building this rig. The audio and network controllers on this motherboard are from Realtek which don’t affect the overall price of the motherboard much.
The four DIMMs of this motherboards accepts a total of 128 GB of memory, and the good thing is this motherboard supports some highly overclocked memory modules too. There are two M.2 slots from which one has M.2 heatsink and six SATA 6 Gb/s slots. The two PCI slots on this motherboard accept multiple graphics cards, and this board is fully compatible with AMD Crossfire technology. On the rear IO panel, you will see some USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A and Type-C ports and a couple of other ports. Overall this motherboard is a great option but only when we are on some moderate budget.
Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition
We’ve seen Cooler Master Hyper 212 cooler is available in several different variants like if you consider the most budget-friendly you can consider Evo while if you are looking for mid-range, there is Black Edition and in the end the RGB Black Edition. Performance-wise they are all the same, but in aesthetics, there is some little difference between them. The CPU block of this cooler is attached with aluminium fins heatsink with four heat pipes that transfer heat from the lower part to the upper one. There is a smart fan sensor on this cooler which automatically manages its speed according to the temperature of the CPU installed. The RGB controller with this cooler allows you to produce different RGB effects that match the lights of your build. Overall in term of any installation, aesthetics and performance, this is one of the best CPU cooler that we can consider.
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro
While selecting CPU components, we’ve to make a fine balance between the aesthetics and the performance. As seen before, components that give fancy looks always lies in the third or at least in the second tier when compared performance-wise. Though with Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro, the case is different and the company made one of the most aesthetically pleasing memories which are not just great in looks but also gives a decent performance. There are different kits available of this memory, but I would recommend you to get the 16 GB split into two modules with frequency at least of 3200 MHz as that would be enough for this build.
These memory modules come with CLS 16 latency and if you don’t know what is it don’t worry because most non-techies get confused with it. Pretty straightforward latency is the inverse of the memory frequency like how many cycles it takes to transfer data from memory. It is count in cycles, and the lower you can get the better it will be, however, also take care of the budget because lower latency memory modules are extremely expensive. There are XMP settings available in these memory modules which runs at different rates. The performance of these modules is great, but interestingly its price is also very budget-friendly.
The RGB lights on this memory and white light diffusers give this memory some fancy looks that will attract users. Also, RGB lights on this module are customizable, and you can use both Corsair or any third party RGB software to customize the lights and can use that to produce different effects with that. These modules are a great option to consider, but they don’t reach 4000 MHz frequency, and the white RGB diffusers make pastel colors.
ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1TB 3D NAND NVMe
No matter if you are considering NVMe or Serial ATA M.2 the only thing you are going to see in them is the manufacturers are working on faster data transfer and getting more storage capacity while the balance between price to performance is placed at the bottom line. At the same time its good to see some NVMe M.2 modules like ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro that gives decent price to performance ratio and its one of the best affordable NVMe. When you compare it with some of the well known Samsung competitors, you will see that this NVMe is the only NVMe in the market that’s giving them competition at a cheaper price. That’s what I like in it and considered it for this build.
Nvidia RTX 3070 Founder Edition
Considering the old RTX 20 series graphics cards will take this build-out of our budget but thanks to Nvidia who reduced the prices of graphics cards to half of the previous one while the performance increased much. The card we’re considering for this build is RTX 3070 which gives performance no different than the RTX 2080 Ti but comes at half price as of it. In term of all price, performance and the overall features this graphics card stand top of the list for mainstream and budget users. But with all of its greatness, this graphics card is out of stock in almost every online store.
RTX 3080 & 3090 comes with some changes to the cores, memory and their clock speed and that all these things are also in RTX 3070 while gives better performance than before. At the launching event of these graphics card, Nvidia claimed that this one would be better in performance than the RTX 2080 Ti as it has better TFLOPs rating and more number of cores but has less bandwidth and memory. RTX 3070 comes with 8 GB of GDDR6X memory and has 16 GBPS memory speed. It has 5888 cores and 184 Tensor cores which is lower than RTX 2070 Super and 2070 too.
Overall this graphics card can be used for 4K gaming, and you don’t have to compromise on in-game settings or frame rates as its powerful enough to handle latest and upcoming titles. The power requirements of this graphics card are pretty high as compared to the previous one, and you need at least 700W PSU to run it.
Antec NeoECO Gold Zen Series NE700G
Antec is a top-notch brand when it comes to their wacky case designs and the overall quality of their products. Though the company was also manufacturing other computer components from which power supply units are one. Last year they launched a lineup of PSUs which includes power supplies with a power rating of 500W, 600W and 700W. The one we’ve there is of 700W and named as Antec NeoECO NE700G Gold and as we can guess from its name its Gold rated 80+ 700W supply. This PSU is enough for RTX 3070 and similar graphics cards, and you might already know that Antec never compromised with the quality of their products.
Although this power supply is not modular but still if you are one who prefers the performance more than the aesthetics, then it’s a great option that you can consider for this gaming build.
Corsair 4000D Tempered Glass
Most users make a mistake while buying the computer as they mostly prefer the aesthetics first and then the other features while in-game the looks of components don’t matter, but other things do so. There I don’t mean I don’t buy an aesthetically significant case but don’t spend too much on the looks while you can save a lot of other money for other components. The casing I would recommend you for this build is the Corsair 4000D, which comes with side tempered glass and has a lot of fan or radiator space.
Starting with the motherboard compatibility, you can almost install any ATX motherboard in it, and the one we’ve in this list is fully compatible with it. This casing also supports ATX sized PSU and has an excellent cable management room, making it aesthetically significant. There is space for three fans at the front side, two at the top, and one on the rear side, and alternatively, you can install AIO radiators at these sides too. You can install any large-sized graphics card in this case, and with mostly RTX 30 series three fan cards, it will give ample airflow and compatibility.
Overall it’s an excellent casing that we can consider for this build and not that expensive like the other competitors, asking additional money for some more aesthetics.
