Description

Coming from an FX8350 and 1050ti, this is an enormous upgrade.

ASRock bios is kind of clunky, and I agree with AHOC. I am not over clocking anything at the moment, for I am waiting on better cooling solutions first.

Upgrade path going forward will be more be quiet case fans, a Dark Rock Pro 4, and either a new power supply or cable extensions.

Nice build! Are you having problems with the video card?

Absolutely zero issues. It runs all my titles very well at very high or max settings(Modern Warfare, Total War Warhammer 2, and EverQuest 2 to name a few).

It's awesome, does everything I want it to do. I am not in the bios often so I can live with how not amazing it is. I would buy again.

Your build looks great! Have you tried to use the Polychrome Sync feature yet? I just bought this MoBo and now I'm seeing a lot of reviews about the Polychrome Sync either not working at all or not working properly. I'm wondering if I need to jump ship before the rest of my parts come in and start my actual install smh. This is my first build by the way...

I haven't really played with the lighting software, due to the wife liking the rainbow unicorn vomit. When I get home from work tonight I will update this further.

I was having some issues with it at first but that's because I am stubborn and wasn't reading the directions. Make sure you extract all the files before install. The software seems delayed when implementing changes but it will sync my graphics card and G.Skill ram just fine. That being said I don't have any experience with other RGB software.

I’m thinking of getting this case do you think I could fit a 328mm graphics card and 240mm aio cooler in there? Also you did a good job with the build.

Thank you! The RX5700 XT Taichi is 324.35mm in length and there would be plenty of clearance in the front, due to the fans mounting between the case and the front panel. I suspect you might be able to fit a radiator at the front with a 328mm but I think it will be a tight fit and you will want to install the radiator after the graphics card.
