The only problem I have had is the CPU doesn't handle my 4 sticks of 8 GB DDR4-3200 very well, random game crashes happened very often. Had to underclock my ram to 2800 and set to 1.5 voltage so it wouldn't crash. Still trying to figure everything out so far its been super stressful since I don't really know what I'm doing. GPU gets pretty hot at max setting had to manually set fan speed to higher RPM's. Will probably upgrade my CPU when the Ryzen 3000 series come out. Overall I'm pretty proud of myself but I still have a lot to learn.

If anyone has any advice please send it my way :)

Looks Great! I almost got that same case (just finished my first build). How do you like it?

I love it, it made cable management super easy.

4 sticks of that RAM doesn't play will on mine either. 16gb does just fine though at 2*8

Gorgeous build!

Thanks! I might just change back to the 2 sticks until I can upgrade my cpu

clean. That h500 is so nice to build in.

Definitely flip the top and back fans to pull hot air out. I have the Vega 64 as well, and I would go into the wattman settings. You want to do +50% power, and let that fan get to 100% speed at 80°C. You can find a post on Reddit for all the settings to get it to run more stable since the default settings are trash! Seriously though, I was playing Apex on "balanced" and I was noticing the voltage meter on the card kept dropping to 1 notch making the game stutter... I changed the settings according to the post on Reddit, and my game runs smoothly! Also, Jays2Cents on YouTube did a theory test on running 2 separate 8 pin connectors for your GPU, and it actually makes a big difference! Congrats on your first PC, and welcome to team red!

Thanks! I'll check out that video

All fans are intake so you have negative air pressure inside. The two fans in the front should be intake (flipped around). Otherwise, nice AMD build

Yeah, you want to flip the fans on the radiator around so they pull air into the case instead of push it out

**positive, but good advise

sry I meant all fans are exhaust* so negative pressure

Been meaning to do that for while lol thanks for the suggestion because I wasn't sure which two fans I should flip.

lol no prob!

the downside, of course, is that the fans look better when they're all set to exhaust haha.

How well does the Vega 64 perform?

It handles pretty on max settings. I can play pretty much any game at 240hz without having to change any of the ultra settings, does get pretty hot though.

That CPU doesn't even handle 2 sticks well unless they are Samsung B-die. lol

I would probably suggest to aim for 2666 mhz with loose timings on the ram at least to start off. All timings and voltages are gonna vary by but I would start there. Maybe soc at 1.15v and dimms at 1.4v. Just a suggestion on where I would start

Do you think overclocking my CPU would help run my 4 sticks at 3200 MHz?

  • 12 months ago

Noooooo! Once you get close to the cpus limits with ryzen it typically is worse for ram compatibility. That's why my 2600 stays at 4.15ghz vs 4.2ghz. It may help to find a near max clock though that is dead stable with 2 sticks at loose timings. Get the cpu stable then work the ram.

Gorgeous build. Sounds like you are learning as you go and that's great especially when you have this forum for feedback and suggestions. Really like the looks of it even of you have some kinks to work out

why didn't this get featured? 1+

Yeah ryzen doesn't deal well with more than 2 dimms. if you actually need 32gb of ram would have been been better to get a 2x16gb set and some of that dummy module vengeance RGB for looks.

Ya great idea, I could just sell my four sticks and buy 2x16gb set with the dummy modules

Been seeing the H500 in a lot of builds lately. It's my favorite case!

Nice first build! Just turn the front fans around to airflow is correct.

Looks pretty sweet! I'm running 4 4gb sticks if RAM with 1700x no issue at all. Not sure the problem is the CPU. If you underclock your memory down, why not just get 2400 or 2666mhz sticks? All the 3000+ mhz memory seems to be a waste.

If you haven’t looked at this as a solution. Try a bios update. I had issues with my 16gb 2x8 ddr4 3000mhz ram. Wouldn’t run at that speed would blue screen had to down clock it to 2666. But recently did bios flash and it been running at the 3000mhz no issues for a days now.

I ended up just taking out the 2 of the 8gb ddr4 rams, it a clocking at 3200 now. My cpu just cant handle 4 of them I guess :(

nice ryzen build +1 May I ask what are the dimensions of your table? How long and wide is it?

  • 12 months ago

I know it's 55 inches long. I didnt get a chance to measure it but theres about 3 Inches on the front and back of my PC. I bought the desk on amazon I can send you the link if you want.

can you fit 140mm fans on the top and the rear?

Did you get a single black Corsair LL120 fan or get 4 White LL120’s.
