Temps are acceptable, could be better, have had way worse.
That has gotta be the ugliest case I've ever seen, let me go ahead and do you a favor and buy it off ya, LOL!!!
No but for real that case is freaking awesome, I wish I could find one.... so jealous!
The cable management area in this case isn't the best, but a little patience (and fan cable extensions and splitters), the wires aren't too hard to tuck away. I have a pic of the backside of the case after getting it all tucked in.
Did you get the full 3600 mhz out of the ram?
How is the Biostar mobo?
Yes, see reply to zoeydeutchfan above, turns out this board is just a doubled 4+2 phase VRM though, it works fine for now, but overclocking the 2700x with it hasn't been as good as some other boards with 6 or more phases in the Vcore section, so I'm looking to replace it in the near future, and probably use the Killer in a distant future 2400g build I'm thinking about. I'm thinking the doubled SoC vrm should net some decent results for the vega 11.... one day.
Fantastic commentary on your components, Now I want a ridiculous case to hate too. Just not this one..... speaking of, How is dust build-up in such an open case? And one more question, how are VRM temps during a render, I ask because it looks like there would be very little airflow around the cpu socket.
Random comments are welcome ;-)
Shouldn't cause anything to overheat, may not even be wrong, but looks suspect to me, I would check the motherboard's manual for the correct configuration. If it is wrong, it should only cause some reduced performance, perhaps an occasional blue screen. An aftermarket CPU cooler such as a Hyper 212 would certainly improve temps, but I would check my temps before changing anything, if your not seeing over 75c during normal use I think it should be fine, if it goes much higher (like 80c+), I would definitely consider a better cooling solution. I should say again tho that I am not familiar with that specific platform, so I am really generalizing here, but anything you need to know should be available. Check your CPU's recommended temp range.
You can look at my build and see how they clean up the front of the case. I had to replay again tho because it looks to me like your memory isn't installed properly, but i'm really not familiar with that platform so I'm not really sure, but I think the sticks should appear to alternate when using all the slots.
I'd like to see how well your old PCI card works with this new hardware. Also, that Noctua fan matches the cat nicely =)
Nice budget build, I used the same case for my build, an inexpensive set of cable extensions helps alot (mine were about $20 on amazon).
LOL, What is that laptop pic edit tho, BOI?!?!?! No hate tho, good on you for not being afraid to post a mining rig during these troubled times. +1 Good luck!
+1 Very cool, I want to do something similar to use as a HTPC, this would look so neat under a living room T.V.. Also, I like the "Ken Block" Strap on the PSU.
I have noticed some voltage spikes up to 1.52v, very briefly... I also noticed it doesn't do it if I keep the Ryzen Master software open, I haven't applied any changes using the software, but watching HWinfo, my voltages hold at about 1.35-1.4 with R.M. open, but start fluctuating up to 1.5 as soon as I closed R.M., kinda concerning really, I'll be interested to see what you find with yours.
Noice build man +1, How are you liking the 2700x?
Nice concept, I wonder if an expansion slot blower,something like (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA24G28M7210&cm_re=expansion_slot_fan-_-35-230-027-_-Product), would help get more air across your cpu cooler,
Nope, someone beat me to it. XD
Thank you for the kind words, and I wish you the best of luck on obtaining a Prizm cooler, maybe you could find one on ebay...
I paid $99.99us, minus a $20 mir, so basically $80 if/when I get the rebate, but even at $100, its worth it with all the extras not all boards have at this price.
As for 2000 ready, No, I had to do a 2 stage bios update to bring it up to current because the bios was an earlier version, Luckily I first built this system with a R3 1200 so I didn't have issues.
I believe it is a newegg exclusive item, so you might have to contact them to check or see if they can update it for you before shipping, or just choose a 400 series board and you won't have to worry about that particular issue, the similar x470 master sli/ac seems to be the replacement for this board, and I'm sure there will be big sales on some of these new (or old) boards soon enough.
I would like to oblige but I already installed it on my sons Ryzen 3 2200g, maybe it will be available for individual sale soon with its popularity, and I can say first hand, great cooling. I never installed it on the 2700x, but I managed a 4.0ghz OC at 1.38v with a 1550mhz igpu clock on the 2200g and temps stay under 70c in a warm room under stress tests.
UPDATE bios P4.60 did fix my issue with the PNY kit, currently stable @2666, though for some reason the timings were way off when I checked in HWinfo. I may try to correct it, but probably not...
Thanks for the reply!, I haven't had any issues losing my bios voltage settings, currently using a geil evo Potenza 2x4g 2400mhz kit clocked at 2666@stock timings and 1.3v. My PNY anarchy 2x8g 2400(currently running at 2666@stock timings and voltage in my gigabyte b350 board) kit will not enter bios with either stick in any slot on this asrock x370 board... disappointed. But I hadn't seen the p4.60 bios until now, so I'm going to update and try again. I'd like to wait until ram prices fall and compatibility improves further before pulling the trigger on more new memory, but I need some form of 16g ram in this soon, I see a 2600x in the near future!
Nice, I have this board as well and am looking for compatible ram, which bios did you update to, P4.50?
This started out as a $500 custom build from a local seller, Ryzen 3 1200, Gigabyte ga ab350m gaming 3 Mobo, 1 dimm 8gb 2400 ram(?), Gtx 1050ti, "debranded" "500w" Psu(?), and a basic Seagate 1tb HDD in a master cooler master box lite 3.1 case. Of course the first thing I did was upgrade to 2x8gb ram, but current prices caused me to stick to 2400 MHz, but I managed to OC the PNY anarchy kit to 2666 at 15-15-15-35 without an issue. Next came a sata Evo 850 256gb SSD(OS and some games) followed closely by a nvme Evo 960(a few select games). It has been working great for a little while, but the Ryzen APUs are out, and I want to tinker a bit, so I found a great deal on a x370 board and a case that better fits my style, but that's the other half of this project, back to the Red Menace (named by the builder, not me) revision.
1 - remove the 1200, 1050ti, 16gb ram, and all drives for "other things"
2 - drop in a 2200g, 2x4gb @ (at least)2400, a 60gb ssd($20 os drive) and 250gb hdd(ol' leftovers mass storage)
3 - finish the other project
4 - Play games with the kids ;-P
Looking forward to posting the results very soon.
Notes, many prices on the part list are to high.
