Was looking to do a clean gaming build on a reasonable budget. After doing at least a month of research ( Thanks PCPartpicker! ), I feel like I pulled it off. Any questions, suggestions and general feedback are welcome.
What can I say that hasn't already been said. Very solid cpu at a unbeatable price. Maybe that's why it's outselling Intel i5 9600k by a margin of 13-1
Sleek and gets the job done. Max temp I have seen is 72 in a stress test.
Seems to work.
Looks amazing. BIOS is easy to navigate (even for a newbie) Most recent update to 1405 was a bit of mess, thank God for google. Prior to update XMP showed 3600, afterwards it shows 2133. However, Ryzen Master does show the RAM at 3600...think that the UEFI for Asus is wacked. Hence the 4 stars
Looks great. Performs great. Not much else to be said
Boot Drive. Performs on par with the 970 EVO PLus
My god this thing is massive! Very quiet, looks great. Crushes FPS for Tarkov, DCS, and anything else you can throw at it.
Exceeded expectations so far. Was a bit worried about a pure negative pressure set up, but temps are fine so far. Might invest in a larger exhaust fan if its needed.
Hasn't blow up or melted anything.
Doubt I needed a push/pull setup, it's purely for aesthetics.
Look amazing and do the job perfectly.
GPU sag is a real thing with that monster, and this has both form and function to handle it.
