How is it at gaming? Was looking to build something similar.

Well it can run fallout 4 at 720p and it's not actually that bad but personally I think as cool as the 3000g is the 2200g or 3200g makes more sense. Keep in mind I didn't overclock it yet so its true potential has not yet been achieved.

thats where you are gonna get a lot of value. the 3000g is a low tdp chip so even on a stock cooler you should be able to max it out

Yeah I was pleased when I played fallout 4 at 900p at 30fps with just a simple auto overclock I built it just to have something to tinker with and stay away from my actual rig.

Its a neat little build with a good start. There is one thing though that you should do. Right now your front fans are not moving any air since they are choked. they need to be installed on the inside of the case to actually be moving air. What might be the next step instead of this computer is to throw in an rx 570 or a used rx 470. Granted if it plays everything you want to play then don't worry about upgrading. other then that nice job

Yeah that was kinda an impulse buy on the front fans there and I just wanted to do something different I tried to install them on the inside but they would just not fit so luckily they fit on the outside and it does have side vents so it not terribly choked thankfully. I also set them up in the bios so they only spin when they need too.

well i mean they can spin up all they want in the front but they are not gonna be pulling any air. sure they can get air from the sides but there is no air pressure for them. I know you said that they don't fit on the inside, but even if it was just one fan on the inside it would move so much more air then 2 fans on the outside.

I see what you mean next time I pull the panels off to upgrade the psu, memory, cpu, ect. I will see if I can take them off and just put one on the inside to help pull air through the case better. For now she is just a host pc that I can swap parts in and out of and experiment with heck I thought about messing with water cooling at some point I know it makes little sense practicality for such a low end build but I'm always curious.

thats fine, its not like thermals are going to be an issue here anyways. that cpu won't produce enough heat to choke that 120mm fan in the back. Expiramenting on a cheap pc is fun for me.

Did the processor work with the motherboard without an update?

yes to my knowledge this is one of if not the only board that supports the Athlon 3000g out of the box.

Athlon 3000g is compatible with b450 chipsets

Did you have to update the BIOS?

Not exactly the most reliable PSU and much better to grab a cheaper EVGA one, but that system probably pulls no more than half of its actual rating.

Ha yeah that's gonna be my first upgrade! And about the bios no as I know of that was the only motherboard i found that was compatible out of the box with the athlon 3000g.

Just curious, what did it benchmark? Heaven or superposition? I want to see if it is much worse than my Ryzen 3 1200 OC.

Sorry didn't see your question I'd half to hook her up again as I rebuilt the system to sell it but I did run it 720p low settings and got about 50fps in r6 seige using the new Vulcan operating system and it was quite smooth but obviously the 720p was an eyesore tho if you can bump it up to 900p it reduces your frames to about 30ps but looks much better imo and much more playable at that resolution granted this was on a large monitor you would have a better experience on a smaller one for sure. RPG wise It ran fallout 4 at 30fps with some drops in larger areas it ran ok but not ideal. I bet even if you got a strong oc on her you could see a 20% performance increase but I put an a320 mobo in it now so I dont know how bad that board is to overclock yet.

My brother does not trust the amd athlon 3000g with gaming but pair it with and rx 570 and it can handle almost all games medium settings 60+ fps

Yeah it's ok but it really shines with an rx 570 for sure!
