Full AMD setup.
I'm in the process of building a rig similar to this one. How's the motherboard and PSU? +1
FatBoyJD, I can give some feedback on the mobo.
For the price, it's a great mATX board that features four RAM slots and a PCIE 1x above the 16x slot.. if you can get it to work. I used this board in a build for my brother's Christmas present and the PC would randomly go into a "sleep-like" state after being on for 15 minutes to an hour. After doing some research and reading reviews, I found that other people who used this board also experienced this issue. The only solution was to change the motherboard (MSI Gaming M Pro) and then computer worked fine after that.
However, this does not happen often and you are more likely to receive a working board than a non-working one. If it goes on sales for $60-65, get it. Especially since it has 4 ram slots.
Thanks for the feedback.
I've been curious about ASRock's boards, they have some interesting design language that definitely would be cool to have inside my case. Some of their features are pretty noteworthy as well. I got the GIGABYTE GA-AB350M Gaming motherboard for the mATX setup I'm currently building; I was plenty satisfied with the GA-AB350N Gaming WiFi ITX board.
That issue sounds like a BIOS issue, if anything. I'll look into that before making (yet another) motherboard purchase.
Hi, the PSU is pretty decent. I wanted to buy 550 TR2 Thermaltake but I ended up buying the 650 Litepower because it is much cheaper in our country. About the ASRock AB350M Pro4 I have not yet encountered going into sleep-like state but I'll research on that stuff.
IM BUILDING THE PC WITH THE EXACT SAME SPECS!
Build that rig and yeah it's good and all around pc.
More pictures of the inside!
Also, did you manage to find that gpu at a decent price?
Watch sales, gpu’s having been going on sale for just a bit over their msrp recently.
Yeah I saw that too. Hoping that gpu prices will come down this year.
I found that gpu deal on Ebay. It is lightly used so I bought it.
I'll post some pics later. Thanks!
Dude your memory literally costs more than your CPU, you dont need all that
he actually do need that memory, cos ryzen benefits from fast memory
I think ryzen will benefit to fast memory so I decided to buy 16gb 3200mhz.
Actually it's also lightly used. I bought it around 150 usd considering the ram prices today. And also I didn't try to overclock the ram but I will try later.
does the rgb lighting on the rx 580 work with that motherboard?
yes it works.
Great budget build tbh.I'm planning on building a similar build but came across many websites saying that the b350 motherboards need a factory bios upgrade to be compatible with the r5 2600 and suggests getting an x470 motherboard instead. So did it boot up without any issues?? I don't wanna risk having to return the motherboard if it doesn't boot up and since the x470s are more expensive it would be great if you could let me know. Thanks in advance.
Hi, You may want to ask the manufacturer if it has the latest bios update or if you go in physical stores you must look for Ryzen 2000 ready sticker in the motherboard box.
I have no issue in booting up with B350 and R5 2600. It can run out of the box.
Yeah I also thought that X470 and even X370 are expensive.
Thanks, dude. Also, could you lemme know where you bought this motherboard from as I'm considering buying the same and want it to be bios updated when I get it.
No problem. I bought my motherboard in the local pc store. I am currently in Thailand. I bought it from the store called advice th. Asrock ab350m is bang for the buck imo.
i was planning on getting a b350 and 2600 but im not sure if i would need an extra cpu to update the bios. did you have an older cpu to update your bios or did it come with the latest bios installed? new to pc building.
This is my first build and I dont have old/extra cpu to update the bios. You must buy a motherboard with the sticker "AMD Ryzen desktop 2000 ready" so that you will run 2600 out of the box with B350 motherboard.
Looking at very similar build- how is the corsair RAM doing after 3 months? Read some iffy reports.
Yeah I can't get the corsair RAM past 3200mhz. So I used only stock speeds of 2133mhz. Sad
Nice build! Any thoughts on the case?
The case is okay for me. It has a backplate for the wires/cords of the psu. It also has a dust filter in front of the case.
Would you recommend your RX580?
Yes I recommend RX580
Is this psu still good with you?
yes still good after 2 yrs
Yeah it works out of the box. If your mobo says ryzen 2000 ready it will definitely work with 2600 right away. No need to flash bios using old/gen1 ryzen.
