It was finicky at first. Once I received a couple bios update's it has been fantastic. I currently am using F6 bios version. My ram is finally stable at its rated frequency. :) I expected the inconvience since most boards were out of stock.

It does have its bios issues with ram, but all Am4 boards do. It interlocks your ram to 2133 mhz.

I was lucky. =D I will build a new pc in 2018 or 2019 with Amd coming out with their new tech. Zen ftw! Hbm on the new gpu's as well!

Agreed! I did a benchmark test using http://www.userbenchmark.com/Software It stated my chip was above average. Still amazed I reached 4.7 ghz without touching my 1.5 volts.

I currently have it at 4.7ghz. I will push it to 5 when winter comes around. =D Currently it hasn't pushed beyond 58c when at full load.

Hopefully AMD will drop a new gpu with the CPU zen being released this fall.

Good thing for Moba's eh? They're a huge population on PC. Pc is amazing. Only if more people had the knowledge and will to build a pc, even a budget 300 dollar pc would do. A majority of games support controllers especially the xboxone version. The only legitimate excuse I can believe is, it's the community. The console has a wider fan base whether it be Microsoft or Sony. Oddly enough microsoft is pc so there is a lot of driver support. Sony, is the only one to begin cross platform, Rocket league supports it as well as ff14 online. I found a post about blizzards new game Overwatch. It's quite the topic. haha

You're right, I've found it, but it it advertised as "hybrid" because the ram has a fan over it. I am not fond of the aesthetics. I may wait for future cards with Hbm.

I admire the push pull setup you have with the radiator. =]

You could have bought an R9 fury X 4gigs of HBM =]

I'd hate to be a downer, but you will not obtain above 30 fps with 4k resolution. I have a similar build with an MSI 390x

I've seen a man use two R9 fury X (640 dollars each) and only obtained 50-55 fps 4k in Star wars battle front. That is 1,280 dollars alone in the gpu's

^ Example.

Sorry man =[ Btw AMD is going to release a liquid cooled R9 390x =D I plan to sell mine and grab two for crossfire.

Good build btw. =D

You can adjust the fans for ram clearance if needed. I didn't have an issue. The cooler out performs any single 120mm radiator liquid cooling unit. That is impressive considering it cools with air. The heat sink is colossal , I definitely recommend a full tower casing.

Yeah, every other piece of mine arrived. I am not sure if stolen or USPS lied, they told me one story and my g/f a complete different story. I cut my losses and bought better drives. =D I will be moving soon, I will not have to deal with theft. =D Plan to build a wooden crate with a lock.

I know it seems odd and you would expect the fan to be facing down.

I had enough head room between the psu and gpu the airflow in my tower pulls air through the front, plus the fan on the power supply hardly spins. (The case is so chilly it makes my room colder) I assumed with amd I would at least exhaust some heat, nope my tower is a spaceship. =D 100% satisfied. Go amd.

I am loving the 8370 as I have stated on the side. idle is 16-18c while full load is breaking 50c on CPU based games such as World of Warcraft. The monitor I am using is a television. =D An LG 32 inch 1080 60 hz edition. =D it's lovely, I am using the 390x's VSR

=[ Saddens me to hear that, I work for UPS, I am glad it is rare to have stolen packages in my area.

I Plan to overclock, did my research the amd 8370 and i5 4690k the i5 only beats it in single thread by a small amount. I had a political standpoint as well. I'd rather give my money to Amd, plus the 8370 has more overclock pontential.

Usps doesn't cover stolen packages. I work for UPS and during peak we give small packages to usps called surepost. Usps is responsible, it happens. I know who did it, but they lied to me, wasn't worth the confrontation. I'll be moving soon.
