Let us see if this ₱65K (₱65,000.00) PC Gaming Build Philippines is an overkill build.
The PC building community here in the Philippines received a huge boost even after the COVID-19 Pandemic hit the world. Despite the shortages of PC components, many PC builders are still optimistic. In addition, they continue to build their PC even it costs them delays.
This ₱65K(₱65,000.00) PC Gaming Build had shown no signs of delays. Regardless of components shortages, it still came up good. But, It’s not a monster build.
Before we continue, I have prepared some other builds for you. Check the list of builds below and comment on your critiques and suggestions.

On the CPU Cooler, the cooler came in a nice box. Installation was a breeze. The RGB controller was bad though making me use my cases rgb/fan controller. Rosewill RMA’d the cooler so I can get a new Controller. Super quiet. Keeps the 3800xt Cold as ice.
About the Motherboard, Bios is for advanced Overclocking builders. The quality is nice. Giant heat sinks. Nice RGB and the controls for it are built into the bios which is nice.
As for the Memory. A great Memory for the price. RGB looks great! Easily overclocked using AsRock Bios XMP settings. Absolutely no issues! Fast as heck. And for the SSD, enough storage to start out with.
Finally about the GPU. Out of the box I couldn’t be happier. I got he rev 2.0 and it ran like a champ. American Truck Simulator, Wreckfest and Nascar Heat 5 all run at 60 fps on ultra. Fans are not loud. The Aorus software makes changing the RGB easy as pie. Even has a temp matched RGB setting. Paired with the AMD 3800xt and it just cruises through games without fault. Got this during the great GPU shortage of 2020/2021 for $510. Glad I waited as the other 5700xt I was looking at had iffy reviews.

Review and Compatibility Issues
Let’s start with the case and the mobo. The case has a front panel USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C port. However, the ASUS Tuf Gaming Mobo doesn’t have sufficient USB 3.2 Gen 2 Headers. Hence, the Type C port will not be usable.
Additionally, the motherboard has an additional 4-pin power connector. On the other hand, the PSU, Corsair CXM 650W doesn’t have. The extra 4-pin should be used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. It won’t affect the system. But, without it, extreme overclocking and GPU currents may require the missing voltage.
Custom sleeves were added to compliment the owners desired build
This ₱65K PC Gaming Build can be seen in the Philippines. Though the owner doesn’t live here, there’s a big chance that Pinoy PC builders will imitate or build something better out of it. And that’s for sure, are a monster and overkill build.
