This Build was not intended to be a full AMD build.. it just happened...

CPU; Ryzen 5 2600 max temps reached using Cinebench r20

Clock; 4.1GHz @1.35v

Idle/Load/Bench CPU temps; 28.25/50/68 degrees C

RAM; G.Skill Flare X DDR4-3200 C16 (using stock XMP 2.0 settings)

Clock; 3200mhz Timings; 16-18-18-38 @1.35v (yes they are the same voltage and I think it's fantastic)

GPU; max temps reached using MSI Kombustor Fur-mark Stress Test

Clock; 1650MHz @1.17v

Memory Clock; 2100MHz @0.97v

Idle/Load/Bench GPU temps; 30/60/83 degrees C


Clock; 1620MHz @AUTOv (+4% in Radeon settings)

Memory Clock; 2100MHz @AUTOv

BENCHMARKS; (will be updating this afternoon due to different scores and clock speeds achieved)

Average Cine-bench Results; multi-core 3190, single-core 425

Average MSI Kombustor 3 Bench Results; 15010 @250fps

Average MSI Kombustor 4 Bench Results; 1450 @24fps

Please note the GPU clock speeds were reduced after the GPU burn tests due to the difference between the two scores being almost Identical in performance I felt it was a safer alternative (Although the Radeon fan curve and auto voltage did lower temps, I may set manual voltages in the future once again to see if it lowers temps, but as of right now I am happy with the result)


I found the AMD Wattman utility worked the best to achieve the best performance out of my particular GPU, even over the MSI Afterburner and included ASRock OC utility

feel free to ask any questions or suggest new content :D

Easily overclocked to 4.1GHz at 1.35v and runs stable. I ran Cinebench r20 and made it through the stress tests and got a score of 3180

I'd say we are looking pretty good as far as stability and performance goes for just a budget CPU :D

CPU Cooler

Radiator was WAY thicker than I thought it would be, which was a nice surprise! Keeps temps cool & noise levels silent


Great UEFI, easy to use, fun to tweak clock ratios and overall amazing overclock performance. Paired with some good airflow, this motherboard is amazing for a budget and top tier performance


Runs at advertised speeds but thats about it. Tried to overclock past that but thats just not happening without some serious dedication if at all (got to a max of 3266 @1.4v so really not worth it), but other than that, REALLY FAST, not b-die though (most likely hynix CJR) which was expected since its c16 and not the more expensive c14 variant.

Amazing RAM especially for AMD platform, would definitely recommend.


O.. M.. G.. Fast.. really fast..

Turned on computer, got past post, saw the loading wheel, one spin later; done booting

Really awesome budget M.2 Would give 10 stars if I could


I love this case. Awesome airflow, amazing cable management, easily fit a 170mm PSU even though it specifies 160mm PSU maximum. Fans can be mounted literally anywhere, I dont care what this case says it supports you can put a 140mm fan or 120mm fan anywhere you want on this case, the back is strictly 120mm fan though. The rear fan is 3 pin but runs silent so I dont mind it one bit. Only complaint is non-replaceable PCIe plates but asside from that solid case!

Power Supply

Silent, efficient, made by seasonic, nothing else needed to be said other than 80+ gold, fully modular with a white LED that can be turned on and off with a switch by the cable ports. Solid, silent, powerful.

Got 2 sticks of 3000mhz ram which slots to use the manual is vague

Usually unless otherwise specified its best to use the second and fourth slot from the CPU

You might want to check your computer specs to see if both sticks if ram are registering I put the ram in this way and only one picked up. Moved it to the two slots next to the CPU and both the registered fine.

yeah, if you look in the photos you can see a screenshot of the UEFI/BIOS and it registers both sticks of RAM as 3200MHz but thankyou for the heads up :D

I suggest trying to put them back into the second and fourth slots and making sure you put them in all the way because I make that mistake as well sometimes hehe

Is there any way to get 3000mhz ram to work at 3000mhz? In your benchmarks the ram is at 2100mhz which is also what mine is reduced to. Thats 900mhz lost.

mine is running at 3200mhz not 2100, I'm not sure where you are seeing that could you please tell me the picture number?

Make sure to enable the XMP profile in the BIOS
