Thankyou! I've been able to get really good performance out of this CPU, with a vCore of 1.36375 using LLC4, it's posting at 4.1Ghz and scoring 3033 in cb r20 with temperatures going to about 71c. None of that matters however, because to be honest, I just wanted a PC in that S340 Elite. It's a great time to be building PCs right now, with so many amazing options to choose from.

Thanks dude... I've felt left out of all the fun since Ryzen launched in 2017 so it's nice to finally have an AM4. Now I can dream of the sweet 3900X

Not a ton TBH, for me it was aesthetic.The board does have decent enough VRMs for a good overclock.

Thank you, the X470 deal was my excuse. Keep on their website like it's your job and you'll find your excuse.

I love the 7700k, and no matter how many other PCs I build, this one is a keeper. Love that the 2070 pairs so well with your i7, I've thought about buying a Sapphire Nitro Vega64 for my 7700K. Cool rig man and just hold onto it, even if you get a i9 later on, it's the last of the fast four cores!

Thanks, and yeah the card is very hit or miss on either performance or color. Being the best cheap card to my taste, the performance is excellent. A blue video card is a harder thing to work around.

The beauty of choosing the 2200G is down the road, when you upgrade the CPU, you will not need a graphic card to pair with that APU. This makes the 2200g a good choice for future you to have fun with.

Sorry but I never use the macros. They might since the only part about the board that is cheap is the switches themselves, being a membrane keyboard.

The case really defines the PC. Makes it unique upon itself and builder. I saw the one similar to yours posted after yours was and had a the same appreciation. I think I will have to build one of these towers.

This was an open box buy at Micro Center. I returned it for an Asus B250 I built this weekend. I needed a place for the 7500 I took out of my personal computer

This case is great. I have to clean it all the time but I knew that going in. I have a land fill across the street and dust had always killed everything I owned. The open under glass helps me maintain the best condition possible while looking awesome.

Incredible gaming rig you've built there. No compromise either with the Ti, Platform worthy of keeping for future upgrades. You obviously decided to skip Coffee Lake and wait for Ice Lake. You'll want to put at least 3 generations of board in there.

Very cool. budget bin builds are the most interesting. You are open to the universe and what it will yield. I thought I was going to use an ASRock B250 pro-4 but bent pins said other wise. The process will produce the replacement.

Your platform is more worthy than I

I had the i5 7500 since Feb and got the 7700K after deciding the 7700 would not be worth it. If you look at the clock gains of the 7700 over the 7500, they are very small. the 7700K is 23% faster before hyper threading is even considered

Oh yeah I forgot to say that the C7 is ordered but not arrived yet. I don't need it I know, but I might keep this PC and after 6 months of seeing the stock cooler on my other computer, I am not doing that again. So the C7 is a bit better they say, but really just for looks. I think is will tie in with the white case.

It might take an extra an SATA drive, but with 2 m.2 in use I am not sure. I did not include it as a thought because the case has no more bays available without case modding.

My other computer was maxing out the 7500 I bought in February. Dirt Rally had it at 85% usage. With the stock i7 it is way faster than the useless 7700 that barely increased my clock. HT was it really it with that chip. The K is real fast running stock and I added HT to my rig. 223.00 US to put in a 7700K was irresistible. The new coffee lake 8600K with board and better cooler was going to cost 550.00US

Now my main PC can wait out Coffee Lake with the 7700K and I have the other PC to sell or use for an HTPC. Either way, the upgrade has paid off for me.

If you upgrade the CPU to either the 4600 or the 4620, it will have the improved HD630 graphics until a decent card is bought. I love the part list index on this site. I deleted most of my part list last week after i got the 7700K. Getting that chip narrowed what my build list is now.

You still got it for 20 less than list. Has it been a very stable board? You've pushed the power thingies more than most will. I wont with the 7500. It would be nice to be able to tell the new owner what can be expected of this 6 screw board.

actually, I got that board already. I had a i5 7500 just sitting on my shelf along side 16GB of cas 15 3000 MHz memory. Also had the HDD and had just snagged a 545s Intel 256GB for 56 bucks. The 30 dollar discount meant on the i7 upgrade meant I got the B250H for 58 dollars (I just wanted a cheap home for my i5). I could have gone cheaper still on the mobo, but the first ASRock I tried failed to post (bent CPU pins) so I went with what I know.

I'm thinking of putting that board into the white Elite case. Upgrading my H270/i5 7500 PC to a 7700K got me to buy that mobo with my CPU purchase discount. Of course I went to the open box area.

You could get the two pack of NZXT Aero RGB fans and use them for exhaust up top and in the rear, then use the included ones up front since they can't be seen there anyway.

here's the 3 pack. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/CDZ2FT/nzxt-aer-rgb120-614-cfm-120mm-fans-rf-ar120-t1

Also your build looks great, I really like the board and chipset glow.

I think you would be better off with 3200 MHz memory if you get the Z370 board. It will run at that speed on a Z board. Also, for SSD, I would only recommend Crucial, Adata, Samsung or Mushkin. Samsung being the top choice for speed.

Yes, either one. If you do a 8 gig 2 stick install, you lose that ram on an upgrade to 16 gigs, and you will want to have that much as soon as possible.

Ok, just use a single ram stick so you can upgrade to 16 without pulling the entire set.

No you're correct. If you have a 1440 or 4K monitor that would be better. Also a high refresh 1080p 144Hz or 240 Hz would also benefit from a 1070 or 1080 card.

The way I see it, as long as I have a 60 Hz 1080p monitor, a 1060 or 580 is the most I can fully utilize.

Check out the load line calibration video by Tom Logan regarding this board. V droop is pretty bad on this and the Gaming-F motherboard.

You're set to go. As long as you've done your due diligence and have ruled out Coffee Lake, your Ryzen 8 core system will be a great productivity machine and a pretty good gaming rig.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Motherboard?"

  • 26 months ago

It's a good price, but the platform is now old. Also, if good sound from the board is desired, you will want a motherboard with the 1220A sound chip.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "build based off 8th gen cpu"

  • 26 months ago

The only suggestion other than the upgraded cooler, is 60 more for this motherboard. I add it because this is already a pretty nice rig, and I have been a fan of the Asus Strix line. More RGB so it might be just me. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/dPPMzM

For the K chip, the 120mm might not be enough cooling for a high over clock. I actually might try it because I already have a 120mm AIO, but for a new build, consider a larger radiator. 240 is safer and not much more.

There really is no point to a CPU only loop. If that is what you want, you might just consider an AIO. Unless of course it's just for the fun of it and looks of coarse. That I totally get.
