Hi all, been a while since I've been on here. Built a new rig, something that I have not done in a long while, brought back memories which is why I thought I'd pop in :P  Just thought I'd post about it and my thoughts thus far



Ryzen 3 1200 [$145]

MSI X370 SLI Plus [$219]

8GB Kingston Fury 2666Mhz (2x4GB) [$118]

Gigabyte "Gaming" RX 570 4GB [$349]

WD Blue 500GB SSD M.2 [$229]

Deepcool ATX Case w/ 580pW PSU [$79]

Windows 10 (yet to buy the license)


Would throw on some photos on here (am happy with my cable management work). Is it possible to share pics through google drive or one drive?


The following tweaks have been made so far:


CPU OC'd @ 3.6Ghz - I think this Ryzen chip hates overclocking, or need to upgrade the BIOS

RAM OC'd @ 3066Mhz - 1.35v (auto) 16-18-18-38 timings

Not going to bother with the graphics oc'ing, from what I've seen it's not worth it.


Only played Overwatch, bit of Starcraft II. Steam games are still downloading. Destiny II will be a game I'll be looking in to as well. For a rig around ~$1200 I was still quite happy. Snappy and fast. THANK YOU AMD for finally, FINALLY, releasing a worthwhile product at a low cost.
