Part Reviews

Memory

OK as an XMP memory kit, mostly interesting as a basic overclocking kit for Ryzen 3000 CPUs.

Generally Micron rev. E ICs.

Good for cheap and easy overclocking to 3600-3800 for allowing maxed FCLK on Ryzen 3000 CPUs without desync UCLK/FCLK.

Not great in terms of timings, especially on LGA1151 due to the large difference between tRCD and tRP that these sticks like cannot be accommodated for. Subtimings also hard to get tight so definitely not high end OCing material.

Storage

Generally very reliable, 5400 RPM however and not the quietest.

Build looks great, but i recommend some cable extensions. They will make your build look wayy better

ok you confused me, what about the ram on a 1151 intel board when you built an Amd am4.

I previously used a 7700k for a short while, just my experience of the RAM with that system as part of the review.

Did you have to get a BIOS update before being able to use the cpu on the motherboard?

The board came with an updated BIOS from the factory, boards with updated BIOSes will have a "ryzen 3000 ready" sticker on the box.
