Build hand-picked for the collection of my inspiration, for 𝖘𝖎𝖗 𝕯𝖊𝖛𝖎' himself, based on his woes for productivity since his fx6300 wasn't cutting it.

Was fun to build with 𝖘𝖎𝖗 𝕯𝖊𝖛𝖎' & it should work well for a long time.
Note: (Price includes tax)
Runs a little high on the voltage (1.448-1.48) but an amazing CPU nonetheless.
Cools awesome, from what I saw while testing it got 24c-39c idle, and 70c max under load on a 3900x! Easy to install if you don't get flipped around, no back plate change needed which is awesome.
Works great, lots of support for RGB, fans and the like with lots of reinforced support around ram and PCI lanes.
Note: When we updated the bios to support the Ryzen 9 3900x it went from the red bios to a silver less useful one, but it works well and now the bios matches the build lol.
Note: Wasn't able to USB C header from case (O11 Dynamic)
Note: Had to move GPU to bottom slot, 1060 and 5700 both scratched the waay too big VRM cooler on the bottom right.
Note: I'm only keeping the mobo at a 4 because of consistent updates, but this motherboard was inconsistent and caused issues with our 5700 challenge from asrock, 32gb of trident z royals, and 3900x which behaved very erratic at first, I believe this is all due to the ram controller. Update it to the Beta version to fix all the issues WE had.
Chosen for aesthetic and die quality, looks great and works great, but doesn't sync up in mystic lights surprisingly
Does the job, does it fast and does it well for the price.
4k - 60fps - Ultra - SotTR
4k - 200% scale - Ultra - Classic:WoW
Beauty to work in, everything was extremely well thought out and it's quite a spacious case, though I did use most of its ample room for fans lol. Note: Lian Li's USB C header wasn't able to be used on this mobo.
Lovely labeling on the back of it and as always lovely presentation, works well. Note: a $25 Steam card that doesn't work on both I've bought or had others purchase is just wrong on SeaSonic's part, and the debacle over hitting 120% was scary causing mv fluctuations over time was spooky.
Sync up well, look nice. Wish they could do more than one color at once but it works out well either way.
