Everything worked very well out of the box. I use it for gaming and development work, as well as some occasional photo/video editing.
Is that really what you paid for the CPU? That's more than a 2700x, at least in the US.
Yes, I paid that price but it was in October 2017. I was on a trip to China and I bought most of the parts there. I believe the R7 1700 was around $220 in the US at that time as well, no? The parts list for this completed build has been sitting in my account since then, so I figured I might as well just put it up as a completed build. Since then I have had an additional Zen+ build (R3 2200G for an HTPC) and a new planned Zen2 build (3800x or 3900x) soon.
Edit: I just checked on Keepa for Amazon, the R7 1700 was over $250 in the US at that time. I said December earlier in my post but I traveled in October and completed the build in December (corrected above).
My bad, completely missed the build date. Makes so much more sense now.
are you using the 730 on obs and leaving the 1080ti to gaming or work? and why the f... do you pay $555 for 32 gb of ram????
I'm using VMs and peripheral passthrough on Linux. When I want to game on Windows, I fire up a Windows VM with the RX580 and have my display on the 730. I paid $555 for the RAM because it's DDR4000 and it was at a time where RAM prices were VERY VERY expensive. This particular model CMK32GX4M2F4000C19 is still above $450 in many stores.
