Description

I built this PC using the graphics card, power supply, and SSD's from my prior PC. Worthy of note is that the ram I have installed is not on the motherboard's qualified vendor list. Settings for the ram had to be manually configured as XMP was hit or miss on stability despite applying similar timings. Let me know what you or are not a fan of, and if you have a similar build I would be curious to hear about your experience with it.

Looks sick! You could have gotten a 2060 super or rx 5700xt

I actually carried this GPU over from my prior build, bought it like a month or two prior to the super cards release :( otherwise I totally would have.

Man 2070 will give a superb perfomance as well it can run games above 110 fps in 1080p and above 60 in 1440p

I think I found out why that particular ram kit isn't working on XMP for you. Based on G.Skills own Ram configurator your Elite motherboard only lists up to 3466 ram from their lineup. https://www.gskill.com/configurator

A look on their site showed 2 Trident Neo kits that are on their sites "QVL" these are the following:

The top version with 3200mhz and 14-14-14-34 timings is best 3200mhz timings you can use on Ryzen 3000. The cheaper and looser rated CL16 kit is not as performance optimized. If you are within your return window and want better stability or "fire and forget XMP" you might be better served with a return and exchange.

Hey Anvil! Thanks so much for you reply. Interestingly enough it seems to be running stable at the moment. I’ll need to benchmark it and see how it holds up. As of now though with the manual input of settings it’s running at 3600mhz. But you’ve got me seriously considering a return.

Hey no problem, I do hope it works out for you. Sometimes I have found it easier to look at the memory vendors own site for double checking possible alternates. I found it funny that if you had just one higher "tier" of a motherboard from Gigabyte your kit would have run flawlessly on XML based on the QVL's.
