Description

The Build had just 3 requirements: 1. be able to game 2. be able to record/stream 3. be green So i started with a Ryzen 1600 as a base for the build with it 6 cores and 12 threads it is great for streaming and editing. for gaming its just as good as an i5 which cost the same. so easy choice there. For the motherboard I took MSI B350 PC Mate because it has all the basic features, and some extra's such as a RGB header (is it even special in 2017) usb type C, and it is mostly black. For the RAM I took some Corsair Vengeance @ 3000MhZ because apparently Ryzen likes fast RAM. 8GB should be enough for now, but it is still possible to upgrade to 16GB in the future. Storage is an 275GB MX300 ssd because it has the most GB-€ now. with a 2TB hdd for recordings and other large files. The power supply is a nice Corsair RM 550 watt psu should be able to power al the leds and some other stuff like a CPU GPU etc ;). all placed in a S340 razer edition, because its.. green. The s340 is a nice case to build in and looks pretty nice as well. it has a nice compartment at the bottom for the psu and the storage, and a lot of room for cable management. I used a wraith spire RGB cooler from a R7 1700 (which was lucky enough to get a watercooler) because more Leds = better. to Illuminate the rest of the case i used a Chinese led strip which was less than 1$ for a meter. it is powered by the motherboard itself so is the wraith cooler. so the leds can be controlled using the msi software.

One part still missing is a videocard currently it has a HD7950, which is going to be replaced for something lik a Asus strix RX 580 or a other RGB/green videocard.

Ayy dude that's one sweet build. If you would be so kind, if you do end up getting a 580, could u kinda describe the performance u get cuz I'm thinkin bout getting basically the same setup so, it would be amazing knowing the kind of power I would get on this system.

Your title gave me dyslexia! Also your gpu got me excited cause my first build had a sapphire 7970. Such a great card series!

It's works pretty well only issue I had was the boot time (around20 sec for post) this has been fixed in the bios update from yesterday, you can turn off the red LED on top, it normally indicates that there is a problem with the igpu, but there is a button in the bios to toggle the indicator LEDs

I just got this mobo and can't seem to find where to turn these off? Do you know if you can turn off the yellow led track as well?

  • 23 months ago

it is possible :) you can turn off all the leds but the button for it is hidden somewhere stupid cant remember where, look for something like ambient led's for the white/yellow traces and id leds for the red indication leds

Is that a yellow LED audio trace? Can that be disabled?

  • 26 months ago

it looks quite yellow on the photos but its more white irl, not sure if it can be disabled.

I found a thread that talks about turning off an Audio Boost LED. It suggested going into "Settings->Advanced->Power Management Setup->On board Function LED Control" in the BIOS - It could be there. Another thread suggested using the MSI Gaming App to disable the "Gaming light" setting.

I am curious because I like this board, but I'm not a huge fan of the LED track. Either way, great build!

Put the price in pounds (£) and look at the price of this.

Nice build, i currently own the ram you've used and i want to get the same motherboard you have, i know it sounds stupid as ****, but i'm not sure if they will work togheter..

  • 22 months ago

yes they work together, but be sure tu update your bios, because older bioses have quite a few problems with ram at higher speeds

hey buddy, i just bought the corsair 16gb ram of 3000mhz, i was wondering does it performs well on it? I went to the quality vendor list on msi website and tried to search it by its serial name, but nothing. Does it runs at 3000mhz. I heard that if you get the 3000mhz, you can only run at 2666mhz like that

  • 25 months ago

It currently runs on 2800 mhz . however msi is still working on faster ram compatability so i expect in a few bios updates it can run @ 3000mhz.

Where / how did you get the 1600 with an RGB Wraith cooler?

  • 25 months ago

It's stock for the 1600

I wish it was. Please correct me if I'm wrong and tell me where you see them for sale, but everywhere I look, the Ryzen 1600 comes with a NON RGB Wraith Cooler. The 1700 comes stock with an RGB one though.

Nice build. I agree that turning off the motherboard lights would improve it. And getting a 1070 founders edition :D

I went with the same ram. When booting up for the first time, did you have any issues with no video output? I thought it was because my specific ram isn't on the qualified vendors list for this mobo, but it looks like you're not having any issues. I built my pc today and I can't figure out what the problem is. Only thing i can think of at this point is the fact that I don't have a gpu yet

  • 24 months ago

nope didnt have any problems like that, youve plugged the display in your gpu right? and not the motherboard the motherboard connectors dont work because ryzen doesnt have a igpu

  • 24 months ago

Thanks for the reply. Figured that out on my own with 2 hours of research yesterday. lol. Had no clue ryzen doesnt have an igpu.

7950 is a great card indeed used it untill 4 months ago, could play most games even @1440p with decent settings.

it currently has the 7A34vA2 bios installed. the ram runs at 3000 mhz however it has a long post time about 15-20 sec, with the memory running at 2133 mhz it post way quicker. However msi should be releasing a new bios soon, wich should adress the long boot times and i hope the ram issues with am4 i havent tried an older bios on this motherboard tough.
