Description

Upgraded my existing build to Ryzen. No regrets. Initially had problems where I had to boot with one stick of RAM, but after updating the BIOS both sticks work. Got the RAM running at 2933MHz with a BIOS update.

Part Reviews

Motherboard

Great budget motherboard. The built-in red LEDs look real nice. Can choose from a few different effects like breathing or blinking using the MSI Gaming App. Got my RAM up to 2933MHz after a quick BIOS update. Easy to overclock.

Memory

Great cheap RAM with a nice looking heatspreader. Initially had to use one stick in order to boot, but after a quick BIOS update got both sticks working at 2933 on my MSI B350m Gaming Pro.

Case

Great case that gives you tons of options for how to set it up. Went with a traditional vertical motherboard and it looks great. Being able to remove all 4 side panels made for extremely easy cable management when you combine it with the massive basement.

I feel bad for Canadians because you have to pay more for computer parts and stuff. Because this computer in America only costs roughly $1100 dollars. So rest in peace you and the rest of Canada.

Considering the exchange rate for USD to CAD which is roughly 1.3. The cost of the computer relatively is the same. $1100 USD is just over $1400 CAD. But yes, Canadian dollar is pretty bad currently.

Oh.. Did not think about the exchange rate. But I do know that taxes are high and its more expensive to buy computer parts. So that's why I was saying 'rest in peace Canadians'

Thanks dude. Originally I just used the stock cooler from the 1600, though I have since purchased a DeepCool GAMMAXX GT cooler and swapped my case to a Fractal Design Meshify C Mini Dark TG

I am planning to build a very similar configuration, but with 8 GB of RAM 3000 MHz and without SSD, what do you think about it? Then in the future I would add another 8 GB and a SSD.

If you haven't already built (which I assume you have) you'll want the ssd first so you can load windows onto it for faster boot times
