Thank you! It did work out of the box with my Ryzen 3700x, I just updated to a more recent BIOS to fix some performance issues. The first BIOS for Ryzen 3000 series was actually pretty buggy, high idle temps, Destiny 2 unplayable, stuff like that. Updating the BIOS fixed everything!

I mean it's the base model cooler from EVGA, but I didn't think it was that high really. It was during 100% GPU utilization, I don't think 80 C is really that high considering it doesn't throttle till like 90+ C.

Yup that's exactly it. I went for the best "bang-for-buck" class x570 mobo that buildzoid recommended. I need the WiFi, and I hate the looks of the Asus TUF :P

Another thought is if in the future I want to upgrade the CPU, this mobo will definitely be able to handle it. I doubt most B450s could.

Hey, it looks like the WIFI version of the Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite hasn't been added yet. Manufacturer: https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/X570-AORUS-ELITE-WIFI-rev-10#kf Newegg: https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813145165

Hey it's a bit later, but I found that you are the only one that used this case with a 3.5" drive on pcpp. I have heard the back panel doesn't leave much room for cable management, was it still ok with the 3.5" HDD? Thanks a ton, it looks good!

+1 For cat. Really though, good job with your first build! I relied heavily on BitWit and Paul's hardware as well haha.

That looks awesome +1. Quick question, where did you get the GPU backplate? I've been looking into doing something similar for a themed build to keep with the colors. Hard to find GPUs the right color. Thanks!

The first boot took a while, but after that it's been pretty fast. I would say between 5-10 seconds for the POST. Honestly not sure what that would be, we've loved the B450 tomahawk so far. I'm not the most knowledgeable about these things though sorry, so I don't really know how normal the variation is.

Thank you! I actually just set it to 2933 right off the bat and it worked fine. The mobo has some really easy OC'ing features so it made it really nice. I didn't really try for any higher cause I figured that would be enough and I just wanted it to be stable. I live about an hour away so I didn't want to have to come troubleshoot all the time haha. Depending on your CPU and mobo maybe see if there's an updated BIOS? I've heard lots of the recent updates have made RAM speeds a bit easier to get.

He does some fortnite, just cause 2, rocket league, and lots of party games mainly. This computer really should be fine for any 1080p gaming, even AAA titles. Huge step-up from his last computer with no dedicated GPU. The Ryzen 5 2600 is actually pretty powerful, and the RX 580 is about the same as the GTX 1060 6GB. I would just recommend looking for deals and going from there, that's pretty much what I did!
