If I were to do it over again, I'd consider the 2600x. Reason is the chip should be better at overclocking
Sorry for the late reply. I know exactly what you mean. I omitted the top left case screw from my build. The motherboard is stable and I've been using it without issues for many months now. It's been a while but originally I planned to use a phillips screwdriver bit and hand tighten it but ultimately just went ahead and omitted the screw. Let me know how you got the screw in if you did!
Sorry for the late reply. If you look very closely at the side view of the case, underneath the "Republic of Gamers" logo of the video card, you'll see I have a very thin, padded adhesive between the GPU fan cover and the white cable bar. This helps keep the video card from slanting as well.
I made the mistake of buying the ram first before the rest of the system. If I could return it I would have.
It's a tight fit but it's not rubbing against anything. My Ryzen is overclocked to 4.0GHz @ 1.2875VCore and I just overclocked my 1070 ti +155MHz core / +200MHz Memory. No overheating at all. This is gaming for a few hours with Diablo 3. I also used 3DMark Time Spy benchmarks to test stability of the video card.
Hope this answers your question
Wow very nice overclocking results on the Ryzen! I had no idea this motherboard existed... Had I known I would have considered it for my build. +1 for Ryzen!
4.2GHz overclock is very nice! congrats!
+1 for Amazon! +1 for be quiet! +1 for Ryzen! but -1 for having to wait months for the build to complete lol.
I updated the description with idle temps as well as temps I recorded playing the games I play.
I bought it on eBay during a 20% off sale. I believe the seller was buydig
I bought the dark rock pro 4 as well and I'm glad you mentioned that the y-splitter only controls one fan... I knew one fan always spins at 100% regardless of how much I controlled it.. Very disappointing indeed.
