Finally switching over to AMD processors, and it's been smooth so far. Primarily used for gaming and a bit of ML software development for computational biology.
Very refreshing upgrade coming form an i5-4590. Only issues may have arisen from the mobo with its "precision boost overclock" which seemed like a one-sized-fits-all auto-overclock. I just turned it off and my temps/voltages stabilized.
Came with a dead LED. Not a huge issue since my cables cover the direct line of sight, but kind of a bummer. Also had to manually update the BIOS with a cheap AM4 Athlon. Not sure if my memory was clocking a bit low due to the mobo or the CPU, but DOCP settings got it up to speed. Otherwise, it works great.
Hopefully a future driver update fixes the VRAM clock freezing and the occasional stuttering and BSODs. Otherwise the performance is great and the fans do keep everything well within acceptable temps, especially in a mini-ITX case.
First time building in a Mini ITX tower, definitely very spacious even though I used a full ATX PSU. Easy to build in, very solid parts and a nice tempered glass viewing window. Airflow has been great with 2x140mm and 2x120mm static pressure fans from thermaltake.
I don't think I can ever go back to a non Freesync/Gsync monitor after this. The colors are very surprisingly good out of the box and I hope they last. Probably one of the best value 1080p, 144hz, Freesync monitors out there. Definitely beats the VG248QE.
Very tinny sound out of the box but nothing that can't be fixed with some sound EQ tweaks. Good value and very convenient microphone config.
Superior and cheaper than the official EVGA braided cables.
