Description

First full computer I have built in over 12 years. I have to admit I really do enjoy it. I have only been testing the OC a few days but it seems solid. I am a little worried about the temps on the CPU under load. I think I will replace the case fans and the cooler fans. Other then that the only issue I had with the build was the Gigabyte 1080 RGB light. It was stuck on a dark orange and nothing would change it. 2nd day overclocking I noticed the RGB was doing a rainbow so I went back in and was able to change it. I have not messed with it since. The cooler is the only other RGB. I like the simple and clean look.

Part Reviews

CPU

Works great easily overclocked to over 4ghz I dialed it back a bit to 3.95

CPU Cooler

The pump is good, fans are loud. The software does not work well. On Ryzen it still is showing the 20 degree offset. The custom fan curve shoots to 100% fans above 60 and I can't change that. I have to use manual settings on the fan and pump. I would not recommend for a Ryzen build.

Motherboard

No issues and works perfectly with everything I have.

Memory

Works great, I'm getting full speed with latest bios on my MSI B350 MATE and Ryzen 1700x.

Video Card

The card is nice. I had an issue with the RGB. It was stuck on a dark orange. No software from gigabyte would fix it or shut it off. While I was testing the overclocks on the CPU on the 2nd or 3rd day I noticed it started flashing rainbow effects. I now have full control over it.

Case

A little big for my needs but easy to build in and the case is very well made. Plenty of room for cable management.

Why are you worried about temps? you have a aio you should be able to get 4ghz and a nice temp.

The AIO software isn't working correctly so I cant set a fan curve based on the real temps. When it reads 60 degrees its really 40 degrees and is trying to set the fans to 100% which is very loud. I have to set everything on manual.
