Phanteks P400s Silent Edition

[easyazon_cta align=”center” cart=”y” identifier=”B01BLYB5HK” key=”small-light” locale=”US” nw=”y” tag=”techdudz-20″]



Talking about the case, the P400S Silent Edition is very great. The features in this case are very similar to popular but expensive S340 Elite and others. The case features RGB in 10 different colours. It has Rubber Grummits, apart from this the case has a shroud, which can help do better cable management. The case also has options to hide cables in different aspects. The Hard drive cages are also hidden, so don’t worry about SATA cables, interrupting your cable management because they have a route from their backside. The case comes with 2 fans, which is a quite big help because you don’t have to buy extra fans for that. The case has steel exterior so no issues about quality.


Power Supply
EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650G 80+ Gold and fully modular.

The Power supply choice was obvious because 3 power supply brands are very popular and are quite reputed by a lot of experts. EVGA, Seasonic, XFX are known for their quality supplies, apart from this we also chose this power supply because it comes with 10-year warranty and a free  Power On Self Tester. The supply is fully modular so don’t worry about cable management. The supply also has 80+ Gold ratio, making it the best choice.

SanDisk 250GB Ultra 3D NAND SATA III SSD
Seagate 2TB BarraCuda SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch

Storage is always upgradable in future, so no thoughts on that. we chose a SanDisk 250GB SSD for Windows, and Seagate 2TB Barracuda which has 64mb cache, and uses modern day SATA 6Gb/s, so don’t worry about stupid windows lag & slow speed.


Graphics Card
GTX 1070 SC

[easyazon_cta align=”center” cart=”y” identifier=”B01KVZBNY0″ key=”small-light” locale=”US” nw=”y” tag=”techdudz-20″]

The EVGA GTX 1070 was our primary choice because we had no budget. This budget build can either come with a GTX 1080 or a GTX 1070. We chose 16 Gigs of ram, because of modern day gaming titles. although you can either subtract that 8gigs of ram and add a GTX 1080. It totally depends on your build planning, if you are doing 4k, 1080 would be the obvious choice, else the GTX 1070 can do pretty much good in 1080p.
The EVGA GTX 1070 is a very good card, considering it has good quality and overclocking ability. The Card has RGB and has 2x fan design.

Finding Rams that had 3000 Mhz speed was very difficult, because HyperX and Corsair rams are too expensive, and they weren’t able to fit your budget. The Ripjaws ram from G.skill was our obvious choice, considering they are very affordable and beautiful.

Corsair Hydro Series H100i v2 Extreme Performance

We know that the Wraith cooler which comes with Ryzen 1700 is very good, and it performs very similar to 212 Evo, but we are overclocking here so we need something big. The Corsair Hydro H100i v2 was in stock, so we thought it was a great choice since it is very affordable.

Processor & Motherboard
AMD Ryzen 1700 + ASRock B350 Gaming K4.

We chose ASRock motherboard because of its value, the motherboard has very good performance, and everyone knows that ASRock has a very great bios mode, which is easy to use. You can buy the Strix or MSI Tomshawk b350 but they are bit expensive comparing ASrock B350. The motherboard has almost same specifications to its big brother the X370.

Ryzen 1700 was our obvious choice because the Ryzen 1800x was quite expensive. Ryzen 1700 and 1800x has roughly 15% performance gap, although we consider price to performance ratio in this build so…
