After messing around and playing with my 6700k for about a year I decided it was time to make a switch and try out something new, so I ordered up the 1600, the msi x370 and some new ram with tighter timing. Still waiting on Cryorig to send me the AM4 back plate so that's why the stock cooler is in there right now. I am very pleased with the switch. I stream and record all my gameplay so my 6700k was pegged 100% when gaming, now my 1600 is running between 60-75%. Most of the parts a carried over from my 6700k build. I had great luck with my ram and board, updated to the latest BIOS and it running perfect at 3200 and 14C. If you have a heavy work load and are considering making the switch from an I7 to ryzen I would highly recommend it. Had a friend with a CNC machine make me my custom GPU brace. Probably my favorite part of the build and really gives it a custom look.
Edit: After installing the Cryorig H5 I am now running 4.0 with 1.34v and 100% stable in prime95 got 30 mins with a max temp of 63C
I have loved my switch from Intel to Ryzen. Running the stock Cooler I am hitting 3.7 and still staying under 60C. Once I get the back plate I hope to push it to 3.9. Great to have the 6 cores and 12 threads to use with my work load.
Great board, very very pleased. Easy to update BIOS, ran my cpu at 3.7, RAM runs great at 3200Mhz and 14C. Great looks and good build quality
Ryzen loves to have faster and tighter timing RAM and this is about the perfect mix between timing and overall speed. Great kit. Highly recommend
Picked this bad boy up on Craiglist for $400 brand new in the box. Can't complain one bit, kills pretty much every game at 1440p and gsync.
Great case for first time builds. Easy to hide cables and good airflow. My only complaint is lack of support for watercooling but I knew that when I bought it.
Great PSU, just about the highest marks in every test.
I picked this up on Ebay as a factory Refurb model new in the box for $280, great viewing angles for a TN panel, 144hz 1440p and gsync. Paired with my gtx 1080 works amazing.
