This is my 2018 build that I started about a week after Zen+ launched. It's taken a while to decide on everything and piece together a final version that I am happy with. All of the lighting is aRGB and seems to stay in sync. Version 2 of this build was all because of my love for the Metallic Gear NEO Mini ITX which caused me to have to change HDDs, fans and the motherboard. I basically ordered the case as soon as I realized my AIO would fit but temps are great in it!
I am happy with all of my component choices and proud of my completed build. The Ryzen 2600 handles everything I throw at it like a champ as well as ran dead stable with 1.375v @ 4.2ghz but killed my ram support. I may jump the gun with Zen 2 just because I can but I still wonder what Zen 3 will change. No issues with any of the SSDs at all. They work great but I feel like a storage snob now. I picked up the Patriot Viper LED 3600 B-Die ram back in spring 2018 when it all was overpriced(for a decent price of $209). The factory white lighting honestly kind of sucked, it was dim and spotty looking. I added aRGB strips and I absolutely love the look in person.
The GTX 1080 runs at a steady 2000mhz on pretty much every game. The freesync support also works perfect with my Acer 144hz display, which is great when calibrated for the price point! I picked up Noctua NT-H1 for a few dollars less than Thermal Grizzly, it seems to keep temps the same on my hardware. No complaints with the MSI B450i AC either, I prefer the more "classic" interface they use as well. Overall loving the build, please feel free to ask any questions.
