Description

Welllll I got some free money and bought a rx570 8g for $319.99 on a flash sale on Amazon. Figured I'd use it to mine crypto and help pay itself off... today is 3/9/18 and bitcoin dropped $2600 in last 2 days lol. But I got the 570 to 30-31mh/s, while the 2400g is doing 168h/s @ 4.1ghz. Bringing in about $2/day combined right now. Hope bitcoin goes back up lol

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing. Overclocked to 4.1ghz Cpu and 1640mhz Gfx with $40-50 aio. Added rx 570 already and the 4.1 holds stable and crushes games without hitting 100% load

Memory

Amazing and fast as lightning. Works with ryzen 2400g perfectly. Pretty as hell too but msi motherboard does not recognize it's rgb :(

Video Card

Love this little thing. 1080p med-ultra setting on every game I play. Mining crypto w/ nicehash while I work and sleep.. currently running @ 30.7-31.1 mh/s dual mining etherium & 920 h/s on decred. One click bios modded with Polaris and adrenaline drivers added 13mh/s. Don't forget to switch radeon setting to compute for mining ;)

I like your build...honestly the new ryzen apu is the way to go considering the current insane gpu prices. How did you flash your mobo though? do you need another cpu for that?

Yes, he probably had a Bristol Ridge Ryzen laying around to flash the Motherboard.

Not to mention AMD is doing a program of sending out CPUs to flash it with that you do have to send back after the process is done(minus the heatsink that it came with for some bizarre reason).

Quick question, do you need a gpu to flash the board? I don't know if you need integrated graphics to do that

  • 19 months ago

You would need a GPU also, unless you could do it without a monitor. I'm sure someone could lend you an old Ryzen chip, GPU, and cooler so you can flash the board. Not all boards need flashing however, double check with the manufacturer.

ok thanks, I will try and check with the manufacturer since flashing the motherboard before even completing my build sounds like a hassle (It's definitely possible though since I have access to an old chip and a 750ti)

Great, I am considering doing the same thing if I do another build for someone else.

Yes you do unfortunately... but I called Msi and they will pay for shipping to send it back and they'll flash it and test it before sending it back.

  • 19 months ago

So how much does it cost for to send it back and get it flashed?

  • 19 months ago
  • 1 point

Just shipping and they'll do it all for free and send it back.... But I just heard today Amd will send me a free am4 processor to use and send back!

Thanks for the replies...I will try and call MSI before I purchase my board because it would be a hassle to purchase another cpu just to flash it

Still waiting on amd to deliver the a6-9500 so I can update my bios...

All I have wrong with it is the cables, good luck my friend, you have a nice bus with great potential.

  • 19 months ago

Awesome job, I'd recommend getting a new case to clean up those cables and to make a cleaner looking build, maybe the Phanteks P300. Just make sure to get a couple intake fans if you go with it.

You could have probably gotten a cheap GPU like a GTX 1050 if you didn't spend as much on things like the mobo, ram, psu, and cpu cooler, but I like to see a Ryzen APU build, its the first that I've seen on pcpp

Did you have a 1st gen Ryzen CPU. How did you flash it? Congrats on the first Ryzen APU Build here

  • 19 months ago

Kind of weird that you paired the more budget parts, with the more expensive motherboard.

But, a very nice build all the same.

Thanks for Sharing !!

Thanks everyone! Yes i do plan on upgrading cpu and getting a gpu in the future but priced are insane right now. I have not been able to flash my mobo yet and the pc place I tried today doesn't have any am4 socket processors in stock... going to probably by the a6 apu for $60 and drop it in to flash

Good call on the Ryzen - GPU prices are hell right now.

Did you get the ram to 3200mhz? I’m planning on the same build but I need to know for sure if it’ll run at the right speed.

  • 11 months ago
  • 1 point

Yea 2nd gen ryzen has almost no issues with ram speeds @ or below 3200mhz

  • 11 months ago
  • 1 point

Make sure your mobo supports the ram youre buying at 3200mhz. Its up to the mobo whether or not it will work

What’s your GPU and did u have a HDD with that SSD? Good job anyway :)

He doesn't have one. He is using an APU (at least for the moment).

Integrated graphics card? Gl mate he’s gonna need it XD

I don't think its a good idea to buy one at the moment... prices are ridiculous.

  • 19 months ago

True, but I found a 1060 for $300

Probably the 3gb version and used..... Not saying its impossible but really not a good time.

From what I've seen so far, even if you don't need the intergrated gpu, the CPU is faster than it's predecessor

Just curious, why the X370 Mobo? Are you planning on getting a much stronger CPU down the road? the B350 boards overclock just as well and with an APU I highly doubt you're looking for for it's SLI capabilities in the future.

  • 19 months ago
  • 2 points

I'd anticipate that he does indeed intend to upgrade in the future. I, myself, also own an expensive ASUS X370 motherboard that I paired with a R7 1700. I'll probably skip the next gen Ryzen CPUs but when Ryzen 2 proper releases some time next year or 2020 I will have a capable platform to upgrade from.

Here's to hoping the Ryzen 2 can hit 5GHz across all 8 cores. That said, if Ryzen + can hit 4.5- 4.6GHz then I might be tempted to pull the trigger

I wonder how well this compares to an Ryzen 5 1500X? I also have the same mobo in my build. +1

Hi Skyrise, I'm pretty sure the r5 2400g preforms like a 1400, just with an iGPU.

  • 19 months ago

Interesting, I just found out that R5 2400G has SMT, so it is probably close to R5 1400 in performance.

Nice.
