I've been following Ryzen for a few months now, hopeful to see what AMD would do to the market, but with no real reason to upgrade. A few weeks ago I learned that my parents needed a new computer, so naturally I jumped on the opportunity to re-purpose my i3 6100 into a great little office computer for them and started collecting parts.
The 380 was and still is the primary bottleneck in the system but I wanted to set myself up with more CPU threads going forward for the next few years, I may add a 480 or similar if I come across a great deal. Very Happy with the build process with no real problems, I updated the bios straight away before a fresh windows install and only had one problem where the computer didn't shut down.
This was my first time overclocking and it was pretty straight forward, managed to get 3.7 MHz on 1.304V stable. I was hoping for a bit better of an OC but I guess I can't complain as all cores are running higher than the factory boost speeds and with reasonable temps under the stock cooler. The ram is rated for 2800MHz but I was only able to get 2666 to post, I am thinking this is because the sticks are only rated for 2T but maybe this will change with more bios updates.
Anyways let me know what you think!
Great processor, lots of threads at a reasonable price!
