Description

I used this machine usually for gaming. It run smooth on every games on 1080p High-Ultra setting. Very stable system. Just done a few benchmark and stress test. I'm only using the stock CPU Cooler. It is a very great cooler, runs quiet and cool. I overclock my RX480 to 1390Mhz on the core and 2140Mhz on the memory and it still stay cool and stable. There's not much problem but I just send back my SSD for warranty purposes cause for some reason the health just drop to 80% in just a few hours. I also send back my motherboard cause my first choice is the Asrock AB350 Pro4 but have no stock to replace the same model. So I decide to go with the Asrock AB350 Gaming K4. Beside this there's no problem I encounter. Smooth gaming experience and snappy system.

How come ive seen no one use the 580 yet? Im looking to build my first gaming PC on a budget but just cant decide on the components

1) Hasn't been out for very long. 2) There's not a massive difference 3) I don't know if it's still like this but when I got my 480 there was about 3 weeks time with insane rebates and discounts and you could get a brand new 480 for $140-$160 while the cheapest 580 is $205

Do you think i should get a 480 instead? Or the 580s will be discounted soon? Im also wondering would my best bet be to go with the ryzen 5 1600 or the i5 7600k

The 580 is just a slightly overclocked 480, that's why. If it was a larger amount of onboard ram, or more stream processors, then it would be worth it, but as of right now you can get the same speeds on a RX 480 by overclocking it.

The R5 1600 will last longer with 6 cores, and 12 threads than the i5 will, 4th gen i5's already lag in newer titles like GTA 5, and Battlefield 1, or Arma 3.

Arma 3 is a great example, you will never get over 30 FPS in that game unless you have a overclockable i7, or a Ryzen 5 1600 or better.

So the Ryzen 5 1600 and 480 is a good choice for my first pc? I wont notice a difference in the 580 vs the 480? What motherboard would be my best bet

  • 31 months ago

This would be great choice for a first PC.

The difference in 580 vs 480 is 3%-5% in all current gaming of 2016-2017. The 580 has a higher power draw than the 480 keep this in mind if power consumption is an issue.

IF your going with 1600 you can go with a B350 or X370.

X370 is more expensive and has SLI/crossfire support.

MSI x370 has one around USD$ 140.00.

The 580 and the 480 are the same card, the 480 is just slightly slower, and can be overclocked to make up the difference.

Get an ASUS or MSI motherboard, just get one that has a decent heatsink over the VRM.

[edit: just realised you built it already...derp] 1600 wins any day, in terms of value, performance and uses other than gaming. 1600 also comes with a stock cooler, potentially saving £20 or more. I recommend just going with a b350 motherboard (btw +RedRageTNT certain b350s have crossfire support, most dont have sli i dont think).

in terms of the gpu, between the 480/580 just get whatever is cheaper, but also make sure, particularly with the 480s, the card has decent cooling and isn't too loud if noise is a problem for you.

My best bet is that the 580's will go down in price soon (not by a whole lot though, down to 480 prices). 1600 vs 7600k is tricky though, Do you really need those extra cores/threads? and are you willing to pay the early adopter price and deal with the problems that Ryzen currently has? If you go 7600k you have to get a cooler, and a board that allows overclocking will be more expensive generally. Both the 1600 and the 7600k are great, Red team or Blue team, both have pros and cons, but it mainly just comes down to preference I feel.

The rx480 is from my previous build so since the 580 is nearly the same as the 480 so there's no reason of upgrading. So far this build can play all of the AAA games in ultra or high setting on 1080p above 60fps.

Did you use LED strips or is the color from the components?

  • 31 months ago

The case he has comes with a free LED strip that has 10 colors, iirc. Atleast, mine did.

I used the led strip that comes with the case. For me that's already enough too bright up the internal.

This is super similar to what I have just ordered for my soon to be build. I just chose the GTX1060 and M.2 SSD routes.

I was thinking of you can get a 550W 80+ Gold in almost the same price. Other than that this is an amazing Ryzen 5 build!

In my country this psu is a lot cheaper that most of 550w 80+ Gold. Btw thank you

So how is that ryzen build? Thinking of making one after my system is upgraded

  • 29 months ago

The system still running great. But I had to change the cpu cooler cause the stock cooler just running hot at 4ghz. I once OC the chip to 4ghz with voltage set on 1.375volt. It's stable but the temperature on idle is 55-65 degrees and if I that any cpu benchmark the temp will spike around 85-95 degrees. I didn't crash though. After that I stop OC and just run with the stock frequency. Still run games like a champ

Hey there. I have the same mobo and processor. Did it take a lot to get them to work well together? ( bios work, etc ). I also don't have a video card yet, and my ram is ripjaw V 3200mhz 16gb. Thanks!

  • 28 months ago

why did you go with low speed ram? i hear that you should go no less than 3000mhz ram

  • 18 months ago
  • 1 point

Ram speeds don't really matter very much. High clocked ram might only increase your FPS by a frame or two.

  • 18 months ago

this was posted 9 months before, and fast ram on ryzen will increase fps up to 10 or more depending on title
