Everything was ordered during sales or amazon pre orders over the course of 4 months. This is my first PC build. Upgrading from a 6 year old Samsung ultra book with i5 Dual core.
I have a new mouse and mouse pad ordered, of course on sale again. Just need to get a decent keyboard and RGB!
Let me know what Bench tests to run on it
Ryzen 5 1600 Ordered this back on November 5th from Amazon UK when someone posted it on a PCsalesUK subreddit. Paid £136 for this and guess what, it is showing up as 8 core 16 thread at 3.2Ghz. What a steal!
ASRock AB350M Pro4 Cheap mother board at £72. Paid full price for this as this was the final part and I didnt see any on sale. Has 2x m.2 slots.
Crucial Ballistix Sport 16gb Single stick of 16gb reduced to £120. RAM price is out of control. Very slow at 2400 but from what I understand is that I can overclock it easily. Actually looks really cool in person compared to the pictures. I thought it would look awful because its red. I have pre-ordered 16gb G Skillz RGB 3200 2x16gb Sticks from Amazon UK for £150, may wait and see if they ever become available and change to faster dual channel.
SSD Reduced, only reason I bought it.
RX570 Pulse ITX Pre-ordered on Amazon UK for £156 at the start of September 2017 and it arrived December 2017! Worth the wait for that price.
Fractal Design Define Mini C Tempered Glass Matx case reduced from around £90 to £56. Bought from Novatech UK. Very cool looking case and really easy & neat to build inside.
EVGA 450W Cables are black.
