Description

A gaming PC that does 1080p60 ultra settings on most games, as well as handling day to day tasks. I haven't got an aftermarket CPU cooler yet, but I'll probably get one in a few months to do a bit of overclocking.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great processor, can easily handle 1080p60 gaming and day-to-day tasks, as well as a bit of video editing.

Motherboard

Great motherboard, but RGB Fusion is a bit crappy.

Memory

Great RAM, easily hits 3200mhz, and RGB looks great - although it does struggle to work with RGB Fusion sometimes.

Storage

Very fast SSD, works well. Only complaint is that not all Samsung Magician features are compatible with AMD.

Storage

Standard hard drive. I did have a few issues with getting Windows 10 to recognise it, but that's not the drive's fault.

Case

Love this case! It looks really nice, the RGB is quite subtle but still adds a lot to the look. I did try connecting it to RGB fusion, but the RGB strips on the side just stayed on the colour white, so I decided to use buttons instead.

Case Fan

Reasonably quiet fans that look amazing. Took a star off because the cables were far too short, I needed a 3 pin RGB splitter to get the second fan to light up.

Monitor

Great looking monitor that is eveything I want it to be.

Mouse

Really comfortable mouse, and the included weight is quite useful.

Custom

Power supply makes annoying squealing sound when the PC is off. I'm going to get it replaced.

Custom

Very competent graphics card, the software (ASUS GPU TweakII) that you can download is really nice.

This is an interesting board, haven't seen reviews on it yet. How's it been for you?

Overall it's a pretty nice board, although like I said in my review, RGB Fusion is pretty bad, and so is most of their other software. The BIOS is quite nice, but I did need to update it because my PC was bluescreening randomly while playing games. Installation was pretty easy, although I did have a bit of trouble getting in a few screws which were behind heat spreaders. Overall it's a pretty good board for the price, and I'd reccomend it to someone who's doing a build similar to mine.

Nobody has said it but one of your RAM sticks is in the wrong slot. If there's 4 slots they shouldn't be right next to each other, I'd look at the manual your MOBO provided. It should clear up the RAM issues you've been having. A1+B1 or A2+B2 is how they should be, right now they're at A1+A2

Yeah, I realised that and have changes them. I got confused because the manual for my motherboard said Channel A and Channel B. I assumed to get dual channel I would have to put both in to channel A, but I was wrong.

I was looking at that Kingston HyperX ram when it was on sale. Is it running well at 3200 for you? I have a feeling I'm going to regret not snagging it when I had the chance.....

I've only had my PC for a few days, but it seems to be running very well so far. I also got my ram on sale for about $80NZD ($50USD) cheaper, and I have no regrets so far.

Hey man awesome build! But I was wondering about controlling the rgb on the ram. I have the exact same motherboard and ram. I can easily control the rgb on my motherboard and gigabyte graphics card with RGB Fusion, but for some reason my ram is not being detected or appearing on RGB Fusion. -- P.S I also got that same ram from that PB Tech Black Friday sale, absolutely amazing deal! :)

I've been having a few issues with the RAM as well with RGB Fusion. Sometimes it shows up, other times it doesn't. The best way for me to get it to work was to just keep restarting RGB Fusion. It usually shows up after around three times. Good luck!
