Gaming Tower with some multi-tasking

Use this primarily for gaming while live streaming to twitch without a capture card. I also edit clips and art for my youtube channel with this ... Does a fantastic job at handling the encoding associated with Obs while live streaming 2560x1080p at 50fps.

After trying to clock my initial set of G.skill ram, did some research and found out that not all ram is created equal. The ram I was using used a hynex die and could get much better results with ram using a samsung die. I have since upgraded. with the old ram I was only able to get 2400 on the ram clock. now running stable at 3200 with the samsung die

Upgraded from the Saphirre R9 Fury, to a MSI Duke 1080 and currently MSI 1080ti Duke

I think so! Might add a RGB strip on the lower/left part of the build to even it out!

It's not complete without RGB!

Rgb is proven to increase clock speeds and give higher fps's! :D

Hello, a nice build you got going there :D Since i will be building my own very shortly, i just have a question regarding the compatibility of the liquid cooler with the Crosshair VI Hero and Ryzen. Is there a need for a separate bracket? or everything you need is just found out of the box? Thank you :D

Sorry for the late reply! The hero vi was the only board compatible with all fm3 aio coolers ... they put extra holes in the board!! ... I had no issue using the back plat provided with the cooler!!!

Hello, nice build. I'm ditching Intel in favor of Ryzen 1700 for its value and performance.

I've a Q regd. this Asus board -- does it retain RAMDisk feature in the BIOS? I'm very used to this fantastic feature on Intel ROG boards. Please confirm and good luck with that build!

I am almost certain I have seen this option in bios... honestly I haven't messed with it at all though. Sorry

What's with the pull setup on the resistor?

on the radiator? there is a cleanable screen on the back of the case and want more air flow towards the components

Hay what do you think of that GPU? I'm making my first PC and all I have left is the GPU

I'm thinking about running a 1700 with a 360mm water cooler. Was there any reason you stopped at 3.9ghz?

Stability and voltage

I underestimated the difficulty of getting this chip stable I had been reading through all the wrong forums appearantly. I've got mine to 3.95ghz with some major testing. What's you Vcore and other specs if you don't mind.

I was able to run stable at 4.0 at 1.5 (don't like that much voltage).... running my vcore at 1.425 right now. just used the multiplier to adjust my core clock (39.25). the cpu was pretty easy to over clock ... it's the ram that gave me a hard time. I have 3600 RAM and I am happy to get 3200 out of it. running the RAM at 1.45

Yeah, I completely agree on aesthetics of the water block. Was going to go with an nzxt Kraken, But loved how the thermaltake aio filled in the case and the rgb riing fans. Not sure if I am going to do something with it.

Think there is 6 memory frequencies ....

Was only able to get to 2800 by adjusting the the base clock to the highest stable setting then adjusting frequency.... Hopefully the future bios will make 3200 and above easier without soooo much tweaking required .... spent the good part of 2 days in bios (minus work and kids). This ram isn't officially supported, but I am sure asus will get around to it. Gskill and Asus don't have a working controller for the RGB settings on the ram (that also work for the board) ... found a released and removed asus aura (lighting control 10429). Finding that to get my ram and board rgb's coordinated took a ton of time too.
