Description

Finally! After months of waiting, I was able to put together a Ryzen build!

Build was very smooth, and I did not have any issues. I love the NZXT h440, looks great and is an easy case to build in. The Noctua nh-d15 is dead silent. The performance of the 1700x has been very impressive so far. Definitely worth the money

First 1700X build! Very nice! Also that is a very good performing CPU cooler, so get those overclocks going!

+1 :)

This is a nice build... However it isn't the first 1700x build on here. The hella broke one a few posts earlier was.

Very nice build man. How is it doing now? Still satisfied? I don't know if i should go with Intel or Ryzen.

I am still very satisfied with Ryzen. It does exactly what I need it to do. This PC is mainly a production workhorse, and it has been pretty much flawless so far. It has been very good for gaming as well. Probably not quite as good as a 7700k for gaming, but honestly I probably could not tell the difference in terms of gaming performance. However, the 7700k doesn't come close to this CPU in terms of music/video production.

Sweet build +1.

Did you have to buy the AM4 mounting bracket for the NHD15S?

I wish I ordered my AM4 bracket far months before I bought the ryzen.

2nd week, and the bracket is still not coming. The wait is killing me. I want to build one soon too.

that sucks. I ended up getting really lucky. I was able to get all my parts pretty quickly. Its worth the wait! good luck with your build

I know right, I'm holding off my build until my bracket arrives.

Thanks! And you, enjoy your build! :D

Hey at least you can build ... I'm running ITX so I'm still waiting for motherboards to release.

  • 33 months ago

I'm sure they will release ITX later. Biostar has an ITX board ready to be released. You might have to wait for some more time for Asus, Asrock, Gigabyte, MSI to release ITX.

And I just found out that the particular cooler I'm going to get is out of stock everywhere here :(

Yikes! I'm sorry about the cooler bro. I purchased mine a few months ago. (Fractal Design S24) I also purchased the AM4 bracket from Modmymods.com 2 weeks ago. Those guys are on it... it shipped out in 2 hours.

As for the ITX motherboards .... I'm pretty much cool with it because I think I'm gonna grab a 1600X anyway which hasn't released yet so I'm hoping they come out around the same time.

Well, the brackets from Be Quiet arrived safely yesterday, but still no info about restocking schedule :(

S24 is a sleek looking cooler. Now I'm thinking of getting the Deepcool Captain 240EX as an option since the AM4 kit is available to purchase since today for $2.6 at local retailer. But I still prefer air cooler though, a piece of metal that will never fail on me :D

I was hoping they release the 1600X together with 1700X so I can compare both. Nah, I can't wait anymore. I have been wanting to build a new PC since skylake in 2014. But I'm holding off my build for Ryzen (currently rocking an i7 720QM 1.6 GHz lol)

Same with me... have everything here, just missing the Mainboard (Gigabyte GA X370 Gaming 5, already pre-ordered) and mounting bracket for my H100i V2

How is your graphics card temp? Also, great build

Thanks! I have not had enough time to do much benchmarking. So I could not give you any accurate numbers at this point. I will make sure to post all temps in a few days when I have the time

  • 33 months ago

Yeah, I will most likely upgrade ram in the future. I already had the LPX so I just used it. I would love to get rgb ram. It is just too expensive. I might get vengeance LED

Sweet build, any trouble OC? I'm hoping a better cooler will get me to 4.0 but I've had trouble at 3.9 when I tighten my ram timings

  • 33 months ago

I have not had any OC issues. The noctua is keeping everything chilly and quiet

nice build u have!! please let me know how do you feel in gaming, smooth or not compare to intel cpu. +1 to your build

  • 33 months ago
  • 2 points

I personally have noticed minimal difference. I am not a hardcore gamer, but I do game quite a bit. It performs at a very high level. Perhaps not as good as a Kaby Lake i7, but for me I'd rather have the extra cores. It is very smooth and I have not had any issues. The main reason I bought it was because my main use for this computer is music production and CAD. Both benefit from the extra cores. However, If all you intend to do is game, maybe this cpu would not be the best... but it's pretty close.

thank you. I might getting this motherboard as hero still not quite available at my place. can i know what version of bios you using now?

  • 33 months ago

That is a very nice and well rounded build. Out of curiosity is there any particular reason that you went with the ASUS PRIME over the ASRock X370 Taichi or the GIGABYTE GA-AX370 Gaming 5?

It was in stock, haha

  • 33 months ago

Understandable those boards went fast! lol

  • 33 months ago

My second choice would have been the GIGABYTE GA-AX370. However, I am very happy with the Asus Prime, and it was more affordable, so that is a plus.

I will keep that motherboard in mind then. I may do an R5 build in the near future, but I will see what the benchmarks look like at launch. At present I am still gaming on my 4770k @ 4.3 GHz.

  • 33 months ago

Do you have an ETA on the benchmarks?! Any idea how well this rig would be for 4K video editing in Premiere?

  • 33 months ago
  • 1 point

Yes! Hopefully I will get benchmarks up tomorrow. Unfortunately I do not do much video editing, so I cant give you very accurate benchmarks for that. However, based off of the performance I have seen so far I would assume it will be more than sufficient for 4k video editing

Is the on-board sound any good on this motherboard or is it best getting a separate sound card?

  • 33 months ago
  • 1 point

It's alright. One of this PCs main functions for me is audio production, so I have a separate audio interface and I have barely used the on-board audio. The on board audio is pretty good on this board, but if you are seriously into audio you should get a soundcard. That kind of applies to all motherboards I have experienced.

New user here! This is my favorite Ryzen build so far! I copied most of it but got a different motherboard, a windowless case and white RAM. Just finished purchasing everything and wanted to say thank ekcoseb!

This build is amazing! Where do you get the bracket for AM4 by Noctua?

  • 32 months ago

Also how is the airflow on your case? I think that makes it cool while overclocking (don't forget to mention the temps, I would like to see it)!

That CPU cooler looks extremely close to the GPU. Any issues there? Make you nervous?

  • 31 months ago
  • 1 point

Not at all. I haven't had any issues. I think the pictures make it look closer than it actually is. There is a safe distance

Temps and voltage of the CPU?

Cool build. Can you do a components review?

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

I actually have made a bunch of changes to this build since I posted this. I now have a full gpu/cpu custom loop. I am going to post a much more detailed review of all my parts once I make a few more finishing touches, and finish benchmarking/overclocking
