Already had the 980 as a cover for a RX480 that went kaput I switched to a 980Ti for my rig and the 980 went to my partners

Two Reasons

One was because the R3's weren't on the horizon when we were parting out this build, the other is that I was more used to OC on Ryzen

the GTX 980 was because Etherium ****** the plans for a RX 570

Once I did a bit of further cable management, I quite like the board, it's not perfect but it's pretty good mATX.

RAM I haven't even touched yet, I'll check for BIOS and what not went I can get my hands on the PC again. But at 2133 it's fine for what the end user is getting, anything else would be a bonus.

It's pretty solid, needs some RGB LED to help illuminate the windowed area as the tint is darker than expected.

It should be, it was dropping frames while playing Borderlands 2 at fully maxxed out, but it is connected to a Samsung TV rather than a monitor at the moment.

There's slight droop but the PCIe slot is reinforced on the mobo, but yeah there'll be support on it in the near future.

My partner is considering getting a figure to use as the support

Yeah currently on The lastest release but I'm struggling to get any ram overclocking stable

That would be my partner, had to make them get hands on with their PC

I HAD to update the BIOS to get Windows to install, at the moment I can't get the RAM to run any faster than 2123MHz, SSD was fine though

Also make sure you're getting the B350 chipset if you're looking to overclock in the future.

Thanks!

It was definitely different, but not having to deal with GPU sag or worries about potential big air coolers torquing the motherboard later down the line is a big bonus. It does really suffer for the top panel IO cable management though.

Exactly that, this pc will be mostly used for video editing and related tasks with gaming being a fun bonus.

Any reason why / what PSU would you have gone for?

Not really, the user needs the CPU performance for Video Editing and multitasking / streaming

There is but you would be choking one of the fans for the GPU. As it's a B350 chipset board just use the second x16 slot as you can't Xfire/SLI anyway,

There are no RGB headers at all on this board

Annoying? Heck no, it hides the ugly M.2 ssd!

The Noctua cooler was a ***** to install due to it's size, but that COULD be done outside of the case but it makes the top middle mobo screw awkward to get at, not impossible.

As for M.2 thermals, maybe? You don't want to be blowing hot air at it consistently, but it's going to be critical.

From what I've heard, if the clocks are left at stock the Wraith is enough for the 1700. But there's not a lot of overhead for overclocking on it for sure.

Thanks, it helps there is an ocean of space in there!

Underload in AIDA64 it seems to peak at 70 degrees on the CPU. Otherwise sits between 50 and 65 in most games I've tried.

It's clearing by 3/4 mm, close but not touching!

Thanks for the concern though!
