Description

This is my first build. Ended up upgrading the CPU because of the extra free game. Bought these parts over the course of November trying to get the best deals - I think I did ok overall. Before this I had no experience actually building a computer but I had done plenty of research and watched many videos. Took me a lot longer than I thought, mostly because I'm a bit of a perfectionist. I absolutely love the NVME drives they are fantastic. Everything runs super nicely and so far I'm loving this build. I tried out PBO and auto OC but got worse performance so I turned it back off. I did bump up the memory to 3800 and FCLK to 1900. I didn't tune timings because when I did I had wierd startup loops - eventually booted but gave me a heart attack before it did. I had to bump the memory voltage up to 1.356 from 1.35 ( the xmp setting) to prevent crashes while running heaven or superposition to test. I haven't messed with any graphics OC and I'm not sure if I will yet. Overall this build is awesome and I enjoyed the process. The plan is to basically just upgrade pieces as they age and keep most of the system as is.
