Description

HI! I used to be a console peasant but I switched to PC gaming. I am 12 years old and have been switching over from not having any consoles to a Wii the Xbox one and now PC! I have a love for star wars and I watched my first Star Wars movie at the age 3. I mostly use this PC for CS:GO, PUBG, Fortnite, and Minecraft. This PC rocks a GTX 1060 6gb, 16gb of RAM, and a Ryzen 5 1600. The only thing that I have a problem with is getting my RAM to 3200 mhz. I have tried many times and I cannot get it above 2133 mhz. If you have any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated. Waiting on a new desk right now I have very little mouse space!! EDIT: RAM is now stable at 2933 mhz with XMP profile 1 still hoping to get 3200 mhz but for now this is fine.

Thank you so much!! And I new I wanted to get my cable management good before I posted. Seen too many people who have bad cable management get destroyed by the comments!

Clean looking build. Love the red theme!

PCBeginner24601 submitter 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Thanks! I was thinking people would hate on me for black and red because it's such a common theme, but red is my favorite color so I took my chances!

Nice build. +1 How do you like the P400 case? I think they look amazing.

There is a lot of stuff in the forum section about getting RAM to play nice with Ryzen. Look through there, and you might find some tips to get your speed up to 2666, 2933, or even 3200MHz.

Thanks! The P400 is amazing! great price for a beautiful case! I will look at the forum later today. I did get my ram to 2933 and I'm keeping it there for now, but I do want to get the 3200 mhz I paid for!
