Comments: New build was actually pretty annoying to setup due to the ram not being that great. I thought based on the Microcenter reviews that it was decent for x570, but upon trying 4 of the same kits (3 RMAS) i can say for sure this kit is dogshit when on x570 and should never be paired with ryzen. I tried a friends Crucial ballastix 3600 cl 16, worked first try on XMP enable so yeah, avoid that Gskill ram, i know i wont ever be buying their ramkit again.

 

Bios for Gigabyte was kind of a mess, they had quite a lot of repeat functionality in the bios, causing overclocking issues. Overall id say this board gets a 7/10 from me, for 300$ its not bad with the USBs you get on the back but mine quite a few of them stopped working and they didnt have another board they could send out so im stuck with it. Thankfully it has enough ports for what i need.

it is the Deepcool 360 Captain. Its pretty good, comparable to the x61 Kraken in terms of cooling :o

Damn nice. I like the somewhat "custom waterloop"-look to it but it's still a prebuilt watercooler. (And damn cheap)

Yea some red cables running from that PSU to the GPU would make it look even better!

 http://www.3dmark.com/compare/sd/3599555/sd/2704577 Compared to my current gaming laptop (at the time cost me 1500$, this costed me 2080)

 

Litte disappointing in terms of overclock ability with both the CPU and GPU (69% ASIC) Able to get 130 Mhz on the core, 400 on the Memory with 77 Mvolts and 110% Power for the GPU, and 4.6 Ghz for the gpu with a 46 multiplier on the core clock. I tried messing the the 100 multiplier to 101 but it did not like that at all lol. Im overall happy with the system it should last me quite a few years.
