Fun build, found most parts on facebook marketplace or a local barter site to keep things cheap (I figured it was an AMD build, why worry about quality) but I used pcpartpicker for reference the whole time. I've got the cpu at 4.2 stable @ 75C and hitting realbench scores in the 100k. GPU runs warm 70C+ at full load but running Farcry5 @ 1080p 60+ fps. Didn't end up getting the case but threw it all in an old Antec case I had laying around. I have a 5 pack of 80mm Arctic case fans 2 front intake and 2 rear exhaust, a 120mm Coolermaster fan tucked in the 5.25 bay for intake and a 120mm Rosewell blue led fan that I mounted in the window for exhaust.
5/5 update threw in a hyper 212 evo and bumped up the cores 4.4Ghz, fsb 203 and voltages 1.425 and still dropped temps to less than 60*C at full load. Also added the extra 120mm fan on the evo and a 80mm fan directly over the VRM, thats a total of 5 80mm, 4 120mm and the 2 50mm fans on the video card and only the video card fans are noticeable when under full load. (I've seen a lot of reviews that this mobo didn't have enough fan headers and that the cooler master 120mm fan were noisy)
Holds it's own, handles an overclock nice, for the price I paid, you can't beat it.
Impressive board, all the bells and whistles. Windows 10 no problems, easy bios and good overclocking.
Rock solid at advertised speeds, won't run a tick overclocked.
Super fast os drive.
Nice hd to have in the background
Does the trick, for the money can't go wrong. Just a little overclock will overheat it but runs Rust and Far Cry 5 above 60 fps at 1080p.
I'm pushing the overhead a little and it hasn't blinked yet. My system runs around 420W stock and with the overclock I have on it I'm probably close to the ceiling, we'll see how it holds out.
I haven't paid for a key yet, the little unvalidated stamp in the bottom corner hasn't bothered me enough to justify the $125
