Build hand-picked for the collection of my inspiration, for 𝖘𝖎𝖗 𝕯𝖊𝖛𝖎' himself, based on his woes for productivity since his fx6300 wasn't cutting it.

Was fun to build with 𝖘𝖎𝖗 𝕯𝖊𝖛𝖎' & it should work well for a long time.
Note: (Price includes tax)
Runs a little high on the voltage (1.448-1.48) but an amazing CPU nonetheless.
Cools awesome, from what I saw while testing it got 24c-39c idle, and 70c max under load on a 3900x! Easy to install if you don't get flipped around, no back plate change needed which is awesome.
Works great, lots of support for RGB, fans and the like with lots of reinforced support around ram and PCI lanes.
Note: Wasn't able to USB C header from case (O11 Dynamic) [Intel ****] Also if you're using a 5700 or galax size 1060, both have clearance issues with the vrm on the right. Weirdly, 2080 super ftw3 fits perfect.
Note: I'm only keeping the mobo at a 4 because of consistent updates, but this motherboard was inconsistent and caused issues with our 5700 challenge from asrock, 32gb of trident z royals, and 3900x which behaved very erratic at first, I believe this is all due to the ram controller. Update it to the Beta version to fix all the issues WE had, though MSI needs fan controlling back in this bios for the users, caused a lot of headache.
Work well in every system used, tested with 3700x and 3900x and provides the majority of benefits without having to hit the full 3600, unless you really need the extra performance, though this still beats my previous ddr3 1333 lmao.
Works well, traditional MLC ssd that'll outlive a lot of traditional drives.
Does the job, does it fast and does it well for the price. QLC though, which is definitely a small chance of being a problem.
Basically an overclocked 1080ti, which is perfect and super stable, though they should lower the price by 100 or so dollars to be more competitive. Excited to see what comes next from both companies, but AMD failed us with drivers on the 5700 so we replaced it with this beast. Also keep in mind this chonky boi is 3 slots. Oh yeah and ray tracing is a fun tech demo from Nvidia.
Beauty to work in, everything was extremely well thought out and it's quite a spacious case, though I did use most of its ample room for fans lol. Note: Lian Li's USB C header wasn't able to be used on this mobo.
Lovely labeling on the back of it and as always lovely presentation, works well. Note: a $25 Steam card that doesn't work on both I've bought or had others purchase is just wrong on SeaSonic's part, and the debacle over hitting 120% was scary causing mv fluctuations over time was spooky but a non issue because who the fk's gonna hit 120% lol.
Sync up well, look nice. Wish they could do more than one color at once but it works out well either way. Very hard to control the fan speed, though this is partially our motherboards fault, there should be software that better controls this within the os.
Great for cheap 4k60, very dim VA panel though, improve nits to around 400 for the next model and if that's not possible then VA's may lose viability in the future.
