I really have a tight budget this is the maximum $$$ i can spend. I paid $1000+ due to taxes and shipping! As a first-time builder, of course there will be a problem. I wasn't able to press tightly my ram resulting to no boot/post screen. But I managed to figure it out in the end after I reseated/removed all hardware about 10 times? My fingers got really sore. :(
CPU [Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz] (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/mV98TW/amd-ryzen-5-1600-32ghz-6-core-processor-yd1600bbaebox)
I decided to overclock it up to 3.8GHz - 1.350V and it's pretty powerful and Stock Fans keep it cool really good.
MOBO [MSI B350M MORTAR Micro ATX AM4] (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/XZCrxr/msi-b350m-mortar-micro-atx-am4-motherboard-b350m-mortar)
It gives me trouble at first since I thought I pushed my ram stick all the way. But it works now. Easy overclock Bios.
RAM [Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4- 3200] (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/mtp323/corsair-memory-cmk16gx4m2b3200c16r)
I can't set it to 3200 mhz. Why? Help me. :) I only managed to run it at 2933mhz
[UPDATE] BIOS was updated to v15 and I can now set it to 3200 mhz easily.
