    Can't enable xmp

    Don't be afraid to up to 1.4 or higher if it gives you the speed you are looking for. DDR4 can take it.

    Have look here. He does so RAM OC with GIG bios.

    Have you done any OCing on this board? Ram settings should be adjustable, just like the CPU freq and voltage, with the + and - keys.

    Looking to Upgrade CPU

    You could put an i7 8700 in there if you wanted, it just depends how much you want to spend. The 8400 is cheap, a BIG upgrade from the pentium and matches well with your 580 for gaming.

    Look for a spot on the motherboard with 2 screw holes close together?

    Thunderbolt 3 peripherals on thunderbolt 2 device.

    Doesn't look like this is a thing. EVERYTHING i am seeing is the other way around, with TB3 male and TB2 female.
  7. I think everyone agrees 7 was more user friendly and easier to get to do what you wanted it to do (Charms, really Microsoft???) But.... Support ends for windows 7 soon......

    AMD Earnings

    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/29/amd-jumps-after-meeting-earnings-expectations.html AMD had their earnings report today and did better than expected in some areas, while worse in others. The good news is that it wasn't the disaster some were predicting. - Also, stock is up 10% in after hours trading, so I guess the report went over well. BRING ON THE 16 CORE MAINSTREAM CHIPS LISA!!!

    FOr that price, even the CHEAPEST new stuff is going to be out of reach. Used parts and maybe a 200ge could work.

TB3 can be a pain by itself sometimes, I can only imagine trying to get things to work through adapters being even worse.

    question about gpu waterblock

    Yes you can, depending on the waterblock. I have an EK on a 1080ti and it allows this.

    RAM problems ?

    Tried booting with only one stick? Have any other RAM to swap and see if the problem goes away?

    All at once, or piece by piece?

    My first PC was a prebuilt that I then upgraded bit by bit. Since then I have build a few systems from scratch, but it is easier to get going and learn things with a working system. I'd wait and buy/build all at once.
