Description

Decided to build a computer for my wife a few months back so she can play overwatch and hearthstone and what not. Turned out pretty good. Didn't really run into any problems at all. Will go thru and do a part review when I have some time.

CPU overclocked to 3.8ghz super easily. got a stable 3.9ghz but volts were getting a bit high. In hindsight, should have spent the extra 30 bucks for a better CPU, but was strapped for cash at the time. But for what the wife uses it for, it's more than enough after being overclocked.

Wanted to do faster ram but at the time of building this, was unsure how motherboard and ram would communicate. Wife was also super set on LED everything so this worked. Tightened the ram timing down some. Runs basically anything I throw at it in 1080p max settings. Do plan on buying 2 more sticks of ram so it's running 16gb.

Do eventually want to get a SSD to boot windows off of down the road. Was a special going on with GPU that had a free 600w PSU that I'm using in my other computer I'm in the middle of building so double bonus.

Why only 2666? Ryzen needs fast RAM.

Possibly overclocked, though it wasn't specifically mentioned in their description. I also got 2666 Speed Ram and it accepted a 3066 XMP preset.

Not gonna hate on your build it looks great, but it could have been a lot better for the price.

why did you spend 100 dollars on 8 gb of ram when you can get 16 with higher speed for 94 dollars and the stock cooler is only needed with a ryzen 3 and you can get a radeon rx 570 8gb oc mk2 for 200 dollars that would perform better than a 1060

IM not sure what 570 card you are referring to any 570 that I have benched has a decrease in performance by about 15% vs a nonoverclocked 1060 6gb

They are all daisy chained and then directly plugged into the motherboard.
