Description

  • i was gonna go for a ryzen apu but i was worried about getting a non-2000 ready motherboard and i dont wanna go with the struggle of getting a cpu from amd and sending it back but in the end i received a 2000 ready motherboard.
  • I ordered ryzen 3 1200 first because it was on sale.
  • i got the gtx 560 ti from my friend for my birthday.
  • the reason for the 600watt powersupply is because from my last pc the powersupply only had 1 6pin connector and the 560ti needed 2 6pin so i looked for a powersupply with 2 6pins and is semi modular and i told my mom to buy it. it was Cooler Master MasterWatt 550 for 40$ but my mom said it got out of stock so she bought the evga one.
  • my ram is overclocked to 2800 with 1.25 voltage. It can run at 3000 with 1.35 volts but im not going to do that yet till i buy a system fan that will fit the front of the case.
  • i overclocked my cpu to 3.8 with 1.2 voltage and it can run at 4.0 with 1.35 volts and i will run it at 4.0 when i get my Cryorig H7 so it can get a better temps.

  • i built this on a carpet btw

  • Edit:

  • Removed 300gb Hard drive and Replaced it with a 120gb SSD
  • Replaced gtx 560 ti with gtx 1050 ti that i bought for 160 second hand.

Nice simple build! Since your HDD doesn’t have loads of storage you might want to consider an SSD. +1

Any reason why you didn't go with a Ryzen 3 2200G; not being critical just curious? A 2200G would have been able to hold you over until you were able to pick up a 1050ti. And +1 for using old / used components, I don't see a lot of builds using used parts.

Must be blind :P Have there been a lot of compatibility issues with the new Ryzen APUs?

nah.. you just have to upgrade the bios of the Motherboard before you can use an APU. And if you don't have a AM4 CPU lying around and the bios isn't already up to date then you are fooked

Yeah - and it really depends on your location if you can find someone to flash your bios for you. All of my computer parts sales were online, and I think that is the majority of people. I don't have any nearby local retailers for computer components - nearest microcenter is 2hrs away.

You can do the BIOS update with an external GPU to get a signal on the screen, update the BIOS and remove the GPU to get the Ryzen 2nd gen APU working.

I think you payed too much for the motherboard and PSU, but otherwise good build

I've put it back to 3.1 because i dont think its necessary right now. But i will overclock it after getting a new cpu fan and graphics card.
