You can do manual voltage control through bios, but I found Ryzen Master was great for testing then I set my oc in the bios so I wouldn't have to load a profile each time I boot.

The only real testing I did was BF1 while trying to get it to 120fps. Ultra was 70's-80's. For now I've been playing Dirty Bomb, not specifically for testing, but I've never seen it go below 60fps with vsync. I did a few superposition runs at different settings and the scores are the second to last section of the build.

Seems fine to me, I would have liked the usb 3 header to be parallel to the board to make cable management just a little easier. One issue of note is I will need to get a fan splitter if I populate all the fan slots because the board has three case fan headers, not a big deal, just something to be aware of. For the VRMs, don't be fooled by their looks. Found a video recently that almost gave me a little buyer's remorse: https://youtu.be/KzRG_LjUl8Q

It's in A2 and B2, running at its 2400mhz stock config, haven't messed with the speed and timings yet though, not sure if i will for a while tbh, runs well enough for me as is.

Maybe go MATX as a smaller step, but I'm not sure how many cases are made for MATX these days...

Oh yeah I had a 500GB Seagate drive I pulled out of a dumpster PC, which I don't expect to last long, so a 1-2TB hard drive is on the list of upgrades, but not a pressing matter for the system now.

Honestly I mainly chose it because it was a B350 under 100 and would fit the build aesthetic. I didn't even realize the VRMs changed on B350 boards, thought manufacturers would mainly do that on X370 boards because those were already more expensive.

Yeah, I only recently found out about cheap/free windows. An expensive lesson, but I suppose learning it the hard way is more effective, and it didn't do anything to the build.

Oh it was open box, as well as the 1400. I had also considered getting an open box 980 for $214(I think), but it was an Asus Strix model and wouldn't really fit the aesthetic of the build as well. There had been a 1600 open box for $170 before, but I saw it sell within a week which kinda sucked. When I saw the 1400 I knew I would be plenty satisfied with it at that price.
