Well i figured it was finally time for me to build a pc. This is my first build, I wanted to play Games like Falllout4, GTAV, Sniper Elite 4, BeamNG, Hitman etc. on Ultra setting at 60fps min. and so far it seems to do everything I want perfectly.

/some notes about the build

-The cpu cooler didnt fit and i had to modify the fan to fit on the factory ryzen cooler and for that reason i havent overclocked the cpu yet.

-The gpu was sagging abt 1/8" when installed and is now being held level by a small bit of black fishing line.

Other then that the build went flawlessly, i had it running in a little under a full day of work and it is handling all my games great.

Very clean looking build. Were you able to get the Corsair LPX to 2933MHz? Or is it stuck at 2133?

Hi, it looks good :) I hope you don't mind a question: I'm designing my first build and have been getting a warning about the CRYORIG (I've tried H7, C7, and now M9a) possibly needing a mounting adapter to fit with MSI - B350 * ATX AM4. If you got the same message: did you have to get a mounting adapter or did everything fit together fine?

Nice first build! I too just built my first PC. :D It looks like all your parts work well and look well together, which is always nice. Was building in the S340 pretty easy? I have been looking at that case, the TG model, for an ATX build myself. +1

yeah, it makes wire management really simple.
