Description

This is my first PC build which i primarily use for gaming and music production. I was previously a console gamer, but i decided to move it over to a desktop.

I don't do much heavy multitasking on this computer, however the music production software i use can get CPU intensive. Im moving from a dell xps which had a core i5 - at certain points it would freeze up and slow down and ultimately crash. All my programs are butter now.

I went with a mostly white theme. I added some custom blue sleeved cables for a color accent. im using the hard drive from my old PC which is sort of just a trash drive. I use the SSD for my main storage. Everything with this build went really well. transferring everything from my trash drive to the SSD was a bit of a pain in the neck since it was REALLLLLY slow. the computer crashed a couple of times mid transfer (probably should have updated the BIOS first). the onlyother issue i have is a motherboard issue. Im using the ASRock AB350 Pro 4 and it came with some electrical issues. My audio which comes from my studio monitors doesn't work, and they give off digital distortion. Ive decided to replace teh motherboard with an ASUS ROG STRIX (pictures to come). Aside from the minor issues, everything went swell.

This PC is so far crushing everything i run on it. every game ive played so far is able to run on max graphics settings with the exception of pubg :) frames are great, programs are snappy, and boot times are instantaneous, however, thats usually expected when running with an SSD.

anyhow, hope you guys enjoy this guy. It was fun to make, and im definitely starting to nerd out a bunch on the whole custom PC craft.

CHEERS!

isn't the top pci slot faster for the gpu than the bottom one?

1 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 Slot (PCIE2: x16 mode)*

1 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 Slot (PCIE4: x4 mode)**

Any compatibility issues between the RAM and Motherboard? Seems like a very limited list of RAM that is "officially" supported by these boards so far.

How does the B350 Pro4 play with RAM, does your ram run at 2933? If so was it hard to get there? Im creating two parts lists for my friends, both of which who will buy their pcs ocer black friday, one using crucial 2666mghz ram, and one using some ram from gskill or corsair thats 3200 or 3000.
