Build

Ryzen 1800x 1080 ti

by chaotichedgehog

Description

I preordered the 1800x from microcenter and the crosshair from amazon and newegg. The next day microcenter confirmed my 1800x order so I didnt worry about that anymore, but the motherboard i had no idea. come March 2nd newegg had it delayed for a week and amazon had nothing to say about it. So i called in sick to work drove to the Houston microcenter to make sure i got the crosshair which they had about 10 in stock. I got home quickly assembled the parts out of the case with a the wraith cooler from my fx 6350 and got a post. Great I thought so i started to build inside my case. i bought a be quiet dark rock tf for my cooler so put that on first. after the computer was i built i turned it on and saw it post for the last time. I kept getting an error 55 from the led on the top right. Which is a no memory installed error. I know it works i saw it all on the bios screen when it did post. I now began to troubleshoot the entire day. I had to tear the entire computer apart, The dark rock tf is a massive air cooler in the end no matter what i did i only saw that dang code 55. I tried different memory sticks, video cards, back to the wraith cooler nothing worked. next day i took it back to microcenter and they exchanged it for a new one. i purchased the 2 year warranty on it through them so im really glad i did, I got home put it together outside of the case and got an error 48 (I think) on the led. thats not even in the list of codes! after about 10 minutes of changing stuff around it posts. Why did it post now and not before? ¯(°_o)/¯ I installed windows with it just sitting outside the case and have had no problems since, sort of. I installed the first version of windows 10 since that was what i had on hand and just planned to update it the computer kept freezing after 10 or 20 min. once it finished installing the lastest version of windows its been solid. So just make sure you put the latest version on your usb

Part Reviews

Motherboard

So much trouble getting it to post. but its been solid since windows was installed looks amazing. wish it had wifi built in

Memory

This was what all the reviewers got so i thought it was the smart buy. running at 2133 right now. going to wait for some stability bios updates before i clock it any higher

Storage

I wasnt planning on buying this. i was going to reuse my 850 as the boot drive. i see little difference in boot times between this and my 850. its a good drive but if i was doing it again i would of saved my money

Storage

i wanted a 2.5 inch drive to stick on the tray behind the motherboard it does its job

Case

love the case plenty of room to work in

Wireless Network Adapter

pulled from previous computer i dont use it much since im always plugged in but the one time i needed it worked, sad that the motherboard didnt have one on board

Case Fan

quiet fans really like them

I had a set like yours.. could NOT get it to post .. Tried 3 sets of RAM , 2 PSU's.. kept getting some wierd q codes, that did not make sence. after 15 hours of troubleshooting i gave up. Got an i7-7700k. Will wait for Ryzen to matures before i try to convert again :)

damn, that sucks. yeah, there's always gonna be teething issues with a brand-new platform. i'm not entirely surprised we're all having issues, myself included. my current configuration uses the same board and processor as the OP's, but i used working 2400mhz RAM from my X99 system. it started right up, but Windows was severely unstable with hard-locks even while idling. i managed to fix it with Asus' latest beta BIOS and reinstalled Windows 10 with an ISO that wasn't dated in Windows 10's early stages. and yes, i also had POSTing issues with the new BIOS.

i think the new [beta] BIOS has a temperature sensor issue because for some reason it reads a high idle temperature of 47C with jumps to 60C, but the cooler itself (Hyper 212 EVO with the AM4 bracket adapter) was barely warm at the time. i also noticed complete dropouts (0C) in the CPU and motherboard sensors every once in a while while looking at HWMonitor. it didn't do this with the old BIOS.

I honestly dont know why mine posted either. once windows was installed its been good

ziggurat666 7 Builds 2 points 20 months ago

Ryzen has had problems with high frequency RAM out of the gate. Originally, did you set up high speed XMP? Anything above 2400 seems to be a gamble, but it's a firmware requirement at this point. Patience is a virtue in new platform. Of course, it's such a virgin platform right now that all the consumer added features can cause a lot of fun :)

I never got to the Bios :(

Sorry to hear that

mysticial 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

I'm in a similar boat. I have the Prime B350M-A. No problems installing Win10, but updates kept crashing over and over again. But once they succeeded, it was relatively stable. Unfortunately, that wasn't the end of it. I started running into memory stability issues with two different sets of known working memory (@ 2133 MHz no XMP). And there's one benchmark that always hard-freezes the system at all clock speeds, single or multi-threaded.

So yes, the platform is very immature atm. I thought I'd have a new toy to play with this weekend and instead, I'm coming to the realization that I'm probably gonna have to exchange or return both the mobo+CPU sometime before Microcenter's 15-day limit expires.

PhelanPKell 1 point 20 months ago

My friend just bought His Ryzen kit yesterday. He went with The ASUS Prime, 1800x, and Selected G.Skill because it's apparently some of the most compatible. The funny thing is that there was a few BIOS updates available right away, and the newest was For RAM compatibility.

In any event, this build looks solid.

Kobay 4 points 20 months ago

I'm simple man, I see Ryzen I upvote

Wolfemane 7 Builds 2 points 20 months ago

WOOOOT!!!!!

Where you having memory problems? Build looks good. I'm pretty stoked to see a modern (and super clean) AMD rig.

Excellent job! Would love to get your take on the new hardware!

Izanhouse 2 points 18 months ago

Hi, I just have a question, and I would appreciate your help so much. I have the same pc case and motherboard, and tomorrow I'm gonna build it (it's my first time). I just realized that the fractal design only provides 8 screws to hold the motherboard, but this one has got 9 holes. Should I find another screw that fits in there? It would be fine just with 8? Thank you so much!

chaotichedgehog submitter 2 Builds 3 points 18 months ago

the very center is not a screw. its just a nub that slots through your motherboard and helps you align it. no screw needed

Izanhouse 1 point 18 months ago

Oh, thank you so much! I just saw it indeed ;)

Kimba 1 point 20 months ago

I thought the 1800x was supposed to come with the wraith max as its stock cooler.

Gentleman00 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

1800X doesn't have stock cooler. I think he used AMD FX cooler.

DarkSamus9000 1 point 20 months ago

Actually, the Ryzen CPUs with XFR do not come with stock coolers. The 1800X, as denoted by the X, has XFR, so it has no stock cooler.

chaotichedgehog submitter 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Old Wraith from my 6350

No, it's the original Wraith, probably from his previous build. The Wraith Max has an RGB ring around it, and has an LED AMD logo in the corner. Right now the "X" CPUs don't come with stock coolers (Wraith Max), but they will be optional in the future.

JCMsergox 4 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Wraith Max comes with RGB?

AMD keeps getting better and better.

Lyrix 1 point 20 months ago

damn! 2nd Ryzen 1800x build! looks great! 1+! wow!

Gentleman00 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

This cooler tho

Liclac 1 point 20 months ago

nice build! and now you made me afraid and a bit worried. I am building with 1700X next week. I hope you can share what the problem was and the solution.

pegotico 2 Builds 2 points 20 months ago

When X99 came out, there were so many issues.. Remember this is a completely new architecture and I'm pretty sure that AMD will surely fix all the issues with updates.

Liclac 1 point 20 months ago

Thanks, Glad to hear that. I do too believe AMD will fix the problems in the next few months.

pegotico 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

It will be soon and gradually! They did solve the power issue with the RX480 in days... It was less than a week. But just like intel

Blacksm1le 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

It is necessary to wait a little for the real test for RYZEN all the benchmarks which were seen on the net was tested in the beta version still remains mother board to update, driver of RYZEN also to come

GeekFlies 1 point 20 months ago

I believe only the ASUS AM4 boards are having problems.

Liclac 1 point 20 months ago

I believe so and I hope so. Never heard of any problem from AsRock AM4 board. Some youtubers and even hardwarecanucks have succeeded building a stable Ryzen system with X370 taichi. The MSI one seems pretty okay too but too expensive.

Super nice build. Here come the Ryzens...

RedRageTNT 4 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Ryzen. Super clean. Amazing.

What were the problems getting it to posts?

MuchLinux6500 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Great Ryzen build! I am a noob, so please be polite to this question if it is noobie. How do you get your computer's video signal to come up to install the drivers if you can't because you don't have the video drivers? Thanks!

pegotico 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

You will still get a display from the video card...

MuchLinux6500 2 Builds 2 points 20 months ago

Thanks!

pegotico 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

You're welcome! :)

chaotichedgehog submitter 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

you will still get a video signal without drivers

MuchLinux6500 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

You will? Thanks!!!!

Roman2510 1 point 20 months ago

yeah, you just can't run games in 3D properly and sometimes you can't get up to the native resolution of the monitor before you install drivers.

MuchLinux6500 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

So, just build the computer, turn ut on, and you will be able to install windows/linux/other os immediately?

pootie2 3 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Yes you will get a video signal. It will just look like garbage until you install the drivers.

DarkSamus9000 1 point 20 months ago

Holy shaz, stunning red accent on the black build. Love it! Will you overclock this CPU? Do you plan to buy a fancy cooler and try some serious overclocks? I'm still aching to know how well these new CPUs overclock.

thetortuga747 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

Update us on the temps you're getting with the stock cooler!

Good luck man.

chaotichedgehog submitter 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

I dont know really. everything is giving me a different temp but through ryzen master im getting about 50-58C

I like this Ryzen 7 build. It's so beautiful. I'm sorry to hear about your POST issues, but I'm also glad you got it working too. Again love how your build turned out and thanks for sharing this beauty. +1

Thanks for the update on description. Goodness that is a nightmare moment for all those POST codes. I'm still glad you got it to work.

No kidding, been looking for a ryzen custom. for. a. while.

Nice build man +1

Nice build. Have you though about WC on the CPU?

chaotichedgehog submitter 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Im not going to, I really like the look of air coolers

XxPCbuilder2016xX 1 point 20 months ago

Congrats for being the first ryzen build on pcpartpicker enjoy!

Blacksm1le 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

The famous code 55 I already had this code in the past on my motherboard ASUS Maximus viii, Asus told me that my card was dead, they exchanged it

Apach3 3 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

congrats on being one of the first Ryzen-powered systems on the site! also interesting to see you too have had Windows lockups too; i kinda figured it was a Windows issue. still, everything looks really nice. hopefully it's smoother sailing from here on out! :D

Yahtadi 1 point 20 months ago

Is this first Ryzen build? WOW!

Dizzlepop12 5 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

It seems like the Crosshair VI BIOS has a ton of problems right now, so we'll just have to wait. Basically all reviewers that got the Crosshair VI for testing (which happen to be the biggest reviewers...) get extremely big performance hits in 1080P, but people with Gigabyte or Asrock boards got extremely good performance.

It seems like an amazing motherboard, considering it has AM4 and AM3 mounting holes, great overclocking, and a ton of aesthetic features.

Did you check to see if any cores were disabled? Apparently some BIOS settings disable cores for no reason right now. All we can do is wait for a new BIOS update...

Kenjionigod 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

I've noticed that too. The only people that reported memory issues in particular all had the Hero VI from what I've seen.

Codcumm15 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

What is the CPU cooler?

chaotichedgehog submitter 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Old wraith from the fx

jaynj 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Thats a nice build. I am wondering if you considering getting a Vega GPU when it releases.

jakesno 1 point 20 months ago

Sweet build. I'm sure the updates will start flowing. Hooray for competition! Enjoy

dragoon20005 4 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

nice build.

I may prob get the same parts as yours for my own Ryzen build as well

what BIOS you are running with the Asus board?

I would like to see your max OC on the 1800X

but just for science

can you do the comparison performance with all 8 cores 16 treads and go down the stack like 8 cores and 8 treads with SMT/HT off

Then 6 cores 12 treads test

followed by 4 Cores 8 treads and OC the heck out of it to see if the 4 Cores could hit 4.2GHz and above

then see if disabling SMT/HT will further increase the OCability of the 1800X

this might give us an idea of how will the Ryzen R5 and R3 will perform

DasBassDropz 1 point 19 months ago

what are temps like??

BodiXDDD 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

Can you disable the RGB on the mobo?

chaotichedgehog submitter 2 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

yes

BodiXDDD 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Any updates on temps? Did they go higher or lower from 2 months ago?

chaotichedgehog submitter 2 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

using ryzen master it idles around 45 C, gaming is about 55 C
