It's actually an mATX case, but the temps never go over 70-75 and stays fairly quiet.

Again, unless I upgrade to a beefier card like a vega 56 or gtx 1080 then I won't see and actual difference. The extremely small difference(that can only be seen on a graph and not in a real world scenario) between the stock vs OC is not at all worth the higher thermals, noise, and power consumption.

After about a month I just left it stock and let Precision boost take care of it. Going from 3.9 to 4.2ghz does nothing in real world scenarios. The only worthwhile overclocking om Ryzen is memory and only with a beefy GPU.

For that kind of money, I honestly can't think of any mATX boards that are worth while outside of the one I have. Sorry.

Microcenter bundle. Got this and the CPU for $200.

Never went past 4.1Ghz 1.275v. I could probably go further but I can't be bothered.

Software is definitely mediocre but useful for fan control and fast booting. As far as freezing or any other problems, I haven't had any outside of a few freezes on an unstable OC. This was fixed by changing the windows power plan to "Balanced". Overall, I think you'll be fine with an APU. Good luck with your build!

Thanks! I haven't even bothered to extend the range mostly due to the fact the 580 is so fast and there are very few(if any) games that would drop under 40 fps at this res.

Just remember that the logo is the the intake side and the frame with the specs is the back. Made that mistake on my first go round.

Awesome build. Just as a heads up you have you all of your fans set up for exhaust, might wanna turn around your radiator and top mounted fans.

There's absolutely no dust filtration when set up in that direction which will lead to higher thermals and constant dusting. If you're cool with that then I won't bug you about it anymore.

Just as a heads up, your fans are reversed completely(Intake and exhaust fans in the wring direction). Besides that, it's a great build!

I'd say that 1.45v should be your limit. Whilst not ideal, it'll likely get you to 4.7-4.8. IMO getting any higher wouldn't give you much of a boost outside of bragging rights in benchmarks.

I haven't gone over 4.6 @1.35, but I can probably go further.

Sadly, that seems to be one of the lowest prices for that specific motherboard(so expensive) if you want to spend less then go h97 since you don't have an overclocking CPU. If you're okay wit spending that much money then go for it. I'd check e-bay listings for something cheaper but since it's more of an aesthetic choice, looks are up to you and I can't find that many choices that are either too pricey for what you're getting or barely even an upgrade to what you already have.

I recommend anything on the z97 platform since you have an unlocked CPU. Spend as much as you want so long as the board is known to have stability, has actual VRM heat-sinks, and whatever on-board features(software or hardware) that are appealing to you. All in all, if you can find the z97s sli Krait then you're golden(if you can find it for cheap). If you live in the US then check out a Microcenter if there are any near you for b-stock motherboards.

Upgrade the mobo, keep the cooler, get a new gpu(buy a 1440p monitor get the most out of your gpu), and maybe add a bigger ssd. No need to upgrade the CPU, skylake/kabylake is marginally faster than what you have now. If you want a cpu upgrade, wait for zen.

The best value known to man. Out if all of the reviews on Newegg and Amazon mine is the only one that seems to have any minute issues. If you have the money, you are almost obligated to buy it.

I would if it weren't already done to death. Generally speaking lower res means more cpu dependent but nowadays it is especially reliant on specific programs/games.

A lower resolution relies more on CPU based tasks and highlights the CPU's bottleneck in relation to the rest of the system. A higher resolution is much more GPU dependent due to the higher pixel count. At a resolution such as 1080p( or lower) the gpu has much less work and it is up to the CPU to process/translate the amount of frames that the GPU is pumping out which could sometimes lead to lower GPU usage. This is all to my understanding and observation. It could be wrong but this is just my very lackluster try to apply what I have learned from various articles, youtube videos, and personal experience.

If you're gaming at 1080p then I'd go for the highest clock speed(ie overclocking) since 1080p is more CPU intensive rather than GPU intensive. At 1440p a 6500 would be perfect.

I would sell it for cheap if it were my card. Sorry about that, only borrowing it.

Most likely an Rx 480 or an Rx 490 when it comes out. (RX 485 if they address the efficiency and OC problems of the 480). The 490 is the ultimate goal for the best experience at 1440p.

If you had to access your GPU, do you need to remove the fan? The Entire heatsink? Or can you just eject it without doing anything to the cooler.

5 months in with a 4.4ghz OC and still stable. The only downside is the software which is a letdown. Outside of that, it has good 8+2 power and amazing stability up to 4.8ghz 1.4625v. VRMs get a bit toasty but only under artificial stress. The mouse is tiny and fat but perfect for claw grip.

Same thing with the older 670, 80, 760, and oher card of the same caliber. A have a 4gb r9 380 and my friend has a 960 2gb, we get essentially the same performance across the board unless the game is amd or nvidia biased.

Not much of a bottleneck, if it all in the first place, and even less so at 1440p.

If the cpu isn't hitting 100% then it's not a bottleneck.

Might wanna wait until Polaris because the 480(or whatever it is) will basically be a 390 but with(I'm pretty sure) HBM for $200-$250.

Good components, good assembly(just good, not great), the software is...ugh. For someone who is just gaming then you're fine with some okay OC tools and a fairly meh BIOS.
