This has been a great build. This is the first PC I've done for myself in around 10 years - lots of fun. This machine will be general use and gaming for the family.
The build went smoothly, without any significant issues. Cable management and routing in this case are excellent. I didn't have to purchase any extensions to get everything connected.
The MasterLiquid 240 is pretty decent. There's been a bit of water noise coming from the pump - something I'm going to have to keep an eye on. If it doesn't resolve in a few days, I'll RMA it. Other than that it's working well. Update: I replaced the fans with a pair of Noctua NF-F12 PWM chromax black. Idle temperatures have dropped and there's no more irritating mechanical sound.
Very happy with the performance of the SSD drives. I didn't go with an NVMe M.2 because the non-benchmark performance just isn't worth it IMHO. The OS is installed on the M.2 and apps and games on the 2.5".
The memory is on the QVL for the X470-Pro, however, I was unable to get the machine to POST with D.O.C.P enabled, nor was I able to manually get the RAM to 3000mhz - the best I could manage was 2800. That was until I put the RAM in slots A2 and B2 instead of A1 and B1. With the RAM in A2, B2 the board posted fine with D.O.C.P enabled, the RAM is running fine at 3000mhz.
This thing is fast.
So far, mostly good. Some water noise from the pump which has decreased significantly in the first few days.
Great board, be sure to put RAM in A2 and B2 if using two sticks and wanting to use D.O.C.P
Works exactly as expected.
It's exactly like the 2.5" version, but in an M.2.
Great SSD, excellent performance.
Love the size of this card. Very easy to install, pretty quiet.
Excellent cable management, tempered glass is amazing. Overall build quality is fantastic.
Super quiet, great cable lengths.
Every time I want to purchase Noctua fans I cringe at the price. After I install them an can hear the difference, I never regret it.
