why'd you decide to get the 1650?

I don't think you should have the CPU overclocked to 4.0 when it has a 4.3 GHz boost at stock. It's basically reducing single core and probably multi core performance. The X CPUs boost to speeds at or very close to the max they are capable of.

Isn't as good as it should be?? This is one of the more beautiful PC setups I have ever seen. The parts are great as well, especially for a first time builder, and it's obviously been planned out and executed well. Give yourself credit where it's due, most people's Self-built PCs don't look this good.

Why'd you opt for the Radeon VII? Is it better than the 2080 in the workloads you're putting it through? It'd be nice to know that the VII at least has something over the 2080 that justifies buying it.

Looking great, in the future Zen 2 would hopefully allow a cheap upgrade to a CPU that can make the most out of the 570

Amazing job with the cable management, looks extremely professional and I can tell you spent a lot of time on it. The only thing I could possibly criticise is the 2400mhz ram. It's going to take away a significant amount of CPU performance vs 3000 MHz. Whether that will matter with a 580 is doubtful but it's something to keep in mind if you decide to upgrade your GPU down the line that you may want to consider swapping the ram too. Again it shouldn't be an issue with your current config so enjoy it! I have a 2600 with an RX 480 and gaming on it so such a great experience compared to console.

The list read 105°C previously

It read 105 before. Maybe a glitch.

Your CPU load temp is dangerously high and could seriously damage it. What core voltage are you using? I suggest trying to bring that down if you haven't already done so. If it won't budge enough to bring temps down to around 85°C maximum I would bring the clock speed down to achieve a lower voltage. Even at stock speeds (which will go above stock automatically thanks to precision boost and XFR) it will not bottleneck a 1070 at all so don't worry too much about getting the highest speed possible.

Very nice! You got your GPU at an amazing price, and mining cards aren't nearly as bad as many people say they are. It probably was less stressed mining undervolted and underclocked than it would have been as a gaming card.

I hope your first upgrade is a new monitor because 900p is the sort of resolution that console peasants have to play at. But I am truly astonished that you managed to build this for only $618, I just built a PC with an 8GB 480 and i5-6500 and it ended up costing more than $700.

Pics would be nice thanks, I'm having trouble visualizing what I need to do. Especially the 24 pin, as the way that is connected has caused me problems with it coming loose and shutting down my PC.
