Description

My first computer i have ever built and runs very nicely. Can get 144+ frames at high to ultra with shadows and AA turned off on fortnite (not overclocked YET). I spent alot on the cpu because im thinking about getting a 1170/2070. This pc is still an absolute monster even on a 1060. The 1060 3gb has not run out of video card memory (VRAM) and I still think 3gb is enough. This pc will boot from a full shutdown in 8-14 sec. Cinebench R15 CPU Score of 1325!!! and OPEN GL 114 frames!!! Overall an amazing cost effective pc. I would build it again.

EDIT: Overclocked core clock on gpu to +230 and added an additional +400 memory overclock it seems to be acting fine.

By plugging the RAM like that it goes into single channel and it's slower than dual channel. Plug the RAM stick in the 2nd slot in the 3rd one (there should be a slot of space between them).

I looked in the motherboard manual and slot 4 goes with 2 and 3 with 1. The slot numbers from left to right are 4 2 3 1

Oh interesting. That's new to me, never seen it like that! Sorry for the bad advice then.

Reconfigure the RAM sticks so they are in the second and fourth slots. You're missing out on a fair bit of performance by not running them in dual channel mode. Other than that, this is a super nice build.

That's really interesting, I've never heard of a motherboard that uses that configuration.

xXMlgG3merXx - I just built a very similar computer (same motherboard, ram, cpu, case, etc) and Your RAM installation is definitely wrong. Look at page 10 of the PDF manual and you will see how there should a space between the RAM modules when using two. If I could paste pictures I would. Here is the Manual

http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_x470-aorus-ultra-gaming_1001_e.pdf

Check page 9 & 10 Channel A: DDR4_2, DDR4_4 Channel B: DDR4_1, DDR4_3

The way you have them you are only using channel A instead of both channels.

Great build nonetheless

Thoughts on the mobo? I've seen a few builds with it now, it seems to be popular.

It’s got all the plug-ins even even a USB type C port and even comes with RGB lighting but gigabytes RGB control software is very difficult to use. I cannot program individual colors to each ram stick. Just changing the colors is a pain. If you can find an Asus board I would go for that.

"For optimum performance, when enabling Dual Channel mode with two memory modules, we recommend that you install them in the DDR4_1 and DDR4_2 sockets."

Straight from the manual.
