Successor to my last build from 2013. Primary purpose is for orchestral audio production, secondary is gaming. This build had it's positives and negatives. The Cooler Master MasterAir was difficult to mount over the CPU as the screws are nestled underneath the fans and heatsink. Removing the fans made it possible to secure in place. Cable management was a nightmare with this case, and I reconfigured the wiring a few times before settling with this one. I was unable to seat the hard drive shroud because of the cables. Later down the line, I plan on re-doing cables when it becomes necessary. Lastly, I discovered Ryzen is not fully-compatible with Windows 7 and because of this, my mouse and keyboard failed to function after booting into the operating system making it impossible to install any drivers. I had to remove the SSD with my current OS, put it back in my old computer, unpackage the Chipset for Ryzen and this motherboard, then set it to auto-install the drivers after it boots to desktop in my new rig. Aside from this, everything has been functional so far.
