Hell no. Go buy a pre-built i5 7400 for~$350. But I advise against going this route though because you have to replace the PSU and add a gpu anyways.
I'd recommend going with a $80-$90 R3 2200G or recent leaks have shown the impending release of 2300X to OC to 4.2-ish. Paired it with a $50 asrock Pro4 Mobo and 3000/16 8gb ram, $50 240gb ssd and you're all set.
Can I run more than 2 fans on the fan controller? I bought two be quiet fans and need to get my intake straighten out.
How did you control the fans? I bought two be quiet fans to add to the front. Can I add it to the front fan controller?
The case comes with a 3-speed controller and I have 2 4-pin headers left open. I believe there's a fan splitter from the controller in the back.
What's the problem with the HD audio?
Let me know how your build goes.
Mine so far is pretty stable. I OC it to 3.7ghz with 1.2v. Idle temps are around high 30s, load is around 60s. I enabled xmp and my ram is running at 2933. Have you diagnos anything? Check your PSU?
Yes unless you upgrade every year or so and even then wouldn't you prefer the top of the line product if money wasn't an issue? But next year, AMD is coming out with a new Zen 2 lineup with Ryzen 3000 series chips on 7nm node that will increase in instructions per clock and core clock speeds. Also it is still on the same AM4 chipsets. SO upgrading this year's 2000 series will not require a different mobo. Either way, look up how many cores you need for your workload. I have a 1700 so I won't upgrade for another 3-5 years.
So neither of the boards were Ryzen 2000 ready? That's odd because my PRO4 came with 4.6 BIOS installed with the "RYZEN 2000 READY" sticker from Newegg.
Good job bro. We all have Ryzen. XD

Everything you need besides a kb/m. W10 can be downloaded on their website on a USB3 stick. R5 1400 4c/8t is more than enough for gaming. But if you can stretch the budget, R5 1600 6c/12t is the way to future proof. 8GB 2x4 3200 is OK for now but 2x8 16GB would be better for piece of mind. RX 570 4GB is perfect for 1080/60. Also, I matched it with a FreeSync monitor and it is so much better than a non-adaptive monitor. I leave my FS on all the time. It's night and day difference.
Good luck looking for a skylake chip with that budget.
Stock cpu cooler should be fine. I don't think an aftermarket cooler is required unless you're an enthusiast or wants a quieter/cooler computer. I'm running stock fans all around but I would like a couple for intake fans. My case is also pretty restricted for front airflow.
Yeah $115 shipped, no tax! But everything else was taxed(Newegg). I actually wanted a 2600 when it was bundled with a 120gb SSD for $190. But I had the 1700 sitting here. I wanted to throw that SSD in my old rig. Oh well.
Thanks man. I got some pretty good deals on some of the parts. I can't complain. $20 HP Omen, $40 G2, $200 monitor, $220 xfx 580.
I got the G2 for $40. xD I was going to go with a 500/600w EVGA BQ for $40 but I got this for a steal. Kind of heavy though.
In a good or bad way?
No why? I've seen that sales though. Was it $60?
Hey, I have these ram running at 2933 after setting the xmp. Thank you again. I'm going to tweak them later. I just want to leave it alone for now.
Thanks man I appreciate you commenting. I had all the ducks lined up and the end it came out right. However, I want to reolaxe these fans. These are audible. I can hear them. Any suggestions?
How's the RAM running for you? Is $162 worth it?
Thanks. I'm gonna get it. Hopefully it'll be problem free. 1700/b350 pro4.
You got the RAM for a decent deal. Right now it's currently $162 USD with tax from NewEgg. Are you running at rated speed? I'm going to blind buy this RAM. Lul :/
What's your ram running at? I have this it in my cart ready to be purchased.
Did you do anything else besides enabling xmp to run rated speeds? I'm planning on ordering this kit as we speak. It's in my NewEgg cart.
