Workstation for programming and gaming, to replace my Q6600 which is now the home media server.
Updated the BIOS to F6 first thing after Windows installed. Got 2933Mhz after BIOS update on RAM and overclocked CPU to 3.7GHz very comfortably.
All i'm missing is a better desk, will update after getting one with monitor pics.
Edit: Some gaming benchmarks:
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
Average FPS: 60 (V-Sync On)
Did not even stutter once, also a nice campaign.
Best bang for you buck workstation CPU at the moment. Easily overclocked to 3.7Ghz (65C on load) and can probably go much further but i don't need to right now. Everything running smooth and fast on this thing!
Really wanted to go with an ASUS motherboard, but after reading reviews was convinced to buy this. Came with F5 BIOS which ran my RAM at a lower speed. Flashed it with F6 and everything is working perfectly!
Great looking RAM with nice speed and latency for my Ryzen. Anything higher and prices go too crazy.
Wanted to try the M.2 SSDs. Extremely fast booting OS and some (read-heavy) games, with room for many programs.
Working fine for now.
Perfect price and performance for 1080p 60fps gaming ! Too bad you can't get them anymore (at least for this price).
Great looking case with really good cable management. The airflow is really good even though the intake at the front looks blocked. Best to get a front intake fan.
Solid Gold PSU.
Really quite quiet. Surprisingly moves quite a lot of air in/out, even if case has a small buffer for intake. Frosted blades look even more amazing with RGB of my motherboard and RAM (on my top exhaust), it's as if i got an RGB LED fan.
Bezel-less amazing, bit wobbly though.
