Thanks :D

The total setup with monitors and headset and stuff is around 2700$ (by now about 3000$, I bought some more stuff not listed here),

Only the PC itself was around 2200$, though it would definitely be cheaper to build the same rig right now.

Surprisingly good, when I use the 5GHz network it's two bars in windows 10 (but equally as fast and same ping as using my laptop right next to the router), the 2.4GHz network is between 3 and 4 bars all the time (speedwise the same as the 5GHz with higher ping).

It's not overkill from what could be done (Threadripper 1950X and 1080ti in SLI) but it's overkill for what I do with it (at least CPU and RAM, GPU is just fine)...

No worries, enjoy your board! I believe all X370 boards are a great choice anyways and don't differ much in reliability and functionality anyways...

It's doing great for me, especially with the latest F4 Bios as my Ram now runs at 3000 MHz without any problems. One thing I would like to tell you is, that you might wanna go for the Gaming-5 unless you REALLY need that clock generator on the K-7, but since Ryzen doesn't OC that well (and I hit 4GHz stable without using the clockgen), I would recommend you to safe yourself some caash, as the boards are equal apart from that clock generator.

It is! That's also why I physically couldn't go with an Arctic freezer 240, even if I only mount one side of the fans, but I'm happy now, so that's that... well, in regard to the case fans, would I be able to control their speed via Voltage regulation if I connect them to the MB or am I better off leaving them on the molex (which is constant 12V, right?) running at full speed, since they aren't loud anyway... I'm wondering because while most of the tech on this MB is still in child's shoes, the fan control software is really well optimized and well designed... Now, I apologize if I misunderstood You at the VRAM part, but I don't get it, You mean the ram on the gpu, right? not the "normal" ram? Because the GPU's RAM is passively cooled while not heavily utilized and gets active cooling as soon as it gets under load, as far as I'm concerned, but please prove me wrong! But admittedly, I did notice said texture corruption when stressing my iGPU on my Laptop, which has terrible cooling...

Thanks for commenting too, first of all... regarding the AiO, it has about 2mm of space on the lower half and I now put a TT Riing 12 on the upper half, it took me ages to carefully position it with the fans in front and then basically cross-screw it on... regarding the fans, I might have described that badly; what I meant to say is that all 3 case fans came with a y-cable for power that has both a 3-pin and a molex (passthrough), right now, they are all connected to the molex behind the motherboard tray and therefore hidden, what I meant to say with the floppy adapter is, that I thought this molex to what seemed to me like 4-pin pwm adapter (actually really dumb when thinking about it now...) was actually a molex (female) to floppy (female) adapter, and stupid me thought it'd be a good idea to connect that to the motherboard... But I have no doubt that my motherboard would be able to drive these fans in parallel nonetheless, it's just more hidden behind the tray and since they aren't controllable in rpm anyways... I'll add some pictures of that tomorrow for easier understanding...

Pheww, tough question... Before everything arrived, the toughest thing was waiting since ~october 2016, getting CPU and some other components march 2nd and finally getting the mainboard april 1st... during building, I'd say the toughest part was to get everything running smoothly (though, I have to say that thinking a molex to Floppy adapter is a molex (my case fans get poer via molex or a 3-pin)to PWM adapter is rather stupid...) Oh, abnd what was probably toughest, was to mount the radiator with the fans in the front (but that may be case-related), it took me at least 45 minutes even with help...

Thank you my friend! it is indeed new to me, as this is the first PC I built and planned and stuff.

oh nevermind, you meant the one on the case... I left it on because I think it looks kinda cool, but I might remove it...

What sticker, on the fan over the "AORUS" branding or on the GPU? Or both? Thanks for your help man, this is all basically newland for me... I bought one Riing 12 as a pull for the H100iV2 (I have yet to update the pics, just installed it today) and am also very satisfied with it, it's super quiet and looks amazing, and as you said, the price is very reasonable

Simple: no money and came with the case... as soon as I get like 50 bucks or so, I'll replace them with 3 RGB fans like the TT Riing 14s.

That's a very good approach! And hopefully vega blows away nVidia cards, so they'll be priced more reasonably as well...

Sure. I'm almost a 100% certain that VEGA will offer a near perfect price to performance ratio but as AMD said before, VEGA will have great performance... recent leaks actually show VEGA lacking behind nVidia in 1080p and only pulling ahead in 1440p and 4k, but again, these are rumours anyways...

Yep. Definitely get the RX580 over the 480, but I don't think VEGA will be a "budget" card and also an insane overkill for 1080p

Thanks. I set the RAM to 2933 MHz after activating the XMP profile and it seems to work only at times, however, that's with the F2 BIOS and I don't have access to my Computer for another two weeks (I'm away) so I haven't done any testing with the F3 BIOS, but that is said to fix quite a bunch of errors...

It does! But I got used to it by now... just won't be able to upgrade every year. Or every second. Or every third...

But if you're doing a budget build get an RX 570 (quite a bit cheaper and still excellent on 1080p) or RX 580 (a tad cheaper and higher clocks than the RX 480)

It's holding up great! I got it to 1400 MHz with no problem too! With the games I play (and there's quite a few AAA titles in there) it crushes everything on 1080p on Ultra/High. GTA V runs with 25 FPS on 800x600 with everything on the minimum on my Laptop (also HD4000 but an i5) but flawless with a constant 75 FPS on the RX 480. If any games don't make it to 60 FPS I'll tell you...

I just bought most of these on a sale or with a rebate as well as from lesser-known chinese brands, which made it not too expensive

Everything I bought was new (apart from the old FX-8350 cooler, of course). In my opinion, electronics are quite expensive in Germany, for example I have to pay a 19% VAT for every single item and another I-don't-know-how-many-percent tax for something else, that stuff adds up...

same for me. Got a 1700X with an RX 480 and run everything imagineable on the 75 FPS cap I set (bc of my 75Hz refresh rate).

Same with me... have everything here, just missing the Mainboard (Gigabyte GA X370 Gaming 5, already pre-ordered) and mounting bracket for my H100i V2

Nice build! I'm just sitting here waiting for my Gigabyte GA X-370 Gaming 5 to put my R7 1700X together with an RX 480 in. BTW, how did you get these FPS, doesn't seem like what most reviewers show... not that I don't believe you...

First of all, nice build! What are your needs? Like Gaming (with that gorgeous rx 480:P) or just office and stuff? Because I'd like to know if this processor still performs well, since Zen isn't gonna come out till next year and then at a much higher price than I expected... AND I DONT WANT INTEL!!!
