Description

Went together pretty painlessly, except those damn GPU and RAM prices. The RGB works flawlessly and I can run the CPU @ 3.9ghz stable with the GPU settling at 2077mhz average, runs absolutely cool CPU @ 29 deg C idle, GPU @ 24 deg C idle, can't remember my max temps under load I did those tests around 2 weeks ago.

Mainly using for gaming at the minute although I will be using it to stream also in the coming weeks once some other components arrive.

Part Reviews

CPU

Pricing is on point at the time of writing this review, I managed a simple quick overclock to 3.9ghz stable which runs games and multi threaded applications with ease. Definitely worth the upgrade if you're coming from a Fx processor with a socket viable until 2020.

CPU Cooler

Keeps my Ryzen 7 1700 cool running at 3.9ghz, the RGB looks great and it runs pretty quietly.

Motherboard

Easy to work with mobo with every connection you will ever need, RGB is a nice edition which is pretty subtle compared to other mobo's i was researching.

Memory

RAM, RGB, 3200 speed works like a charm.

Video Card

Great card running average of 2000mhz stable and stays remarkably cool at full load. The only issue is the price although it's the same for most all graphic cards at the minute.

Case

Fantastic case, easy to build in, cable management is a breeze, great airflow if you add an extra fan, and I really like the tint on the tempered glass.

Power Supply

Very good solid PSU, it was a little overkill for my build but runs silently.

Absolutely fine temps stay around 64 deg @3.9 full load and it’s quiet.

For purely gaming go for Intel mate unless you want motherboard support until 2020 then go Ryzen, The I5 8400k is better for pure fps.

No worries, maybe drop a link to your build when it’s ready

Aura mate, everything is running off the motherboard.

Yeah it’s been a cracking CPU, anyone looking to build now I would recommend waiting for the Ryzen+ refresh to see difference in performance and possibly a decrease in price on gen1, but you can’t go wrong.
