My current RYZEN now. All assembled now for testing. Yes I know the d15s covered half the board, so far I like how it turns out.
Have been testing my Ryzen 1700 with the msi B350 gaming pro, I am using my old ssd from my previous build without any reinstalling. Surprised it booted up and it automatically find the drivers. I prefer a clean install but I don't have a win 10 iso and also I the windows 10 I am now on is the free upgrade from windows 8.
Things seems to work find but I am having a huge problem with the mouse cursor lagging. Tried removing the gpu driver and realtek drivers but still the same things. It works fine then the mouse is jerky again. I unplug my ssd and put it into the the intel pentium and no jerky mouse. Not sure what the problem is. It is pretty annoying and my pc is not that usable.
Other than that for the hardware side of things I updated to the latest bios but I still can't go to my ram speed of 3466mhz even with lax timing, I guess this is the limitation of the board. I can go to 3200mhz around c16 timings but I am not sure of its stability have seems to not be stable. I settled for 3066mhz at around c14 timings. For 32GB is good enough. I don't expect this ram density to clock high for amd boards. I am pleasantly surprised for this.
The highest clock I can get out of my ryzen 1700 is 3.7Ghz at a not so impressive 1.3V. I can't seem to get to 3.8GHz when I typed it in the bios as I boot into windows cpuz would just show 1.5GHz strangely. It did managed to boot to 3.8Ghz once do a short cpuz test but after reboot it is stuck as 1.5GHz. Not sure if this is the limitation of this board. I think it probably have to put near 1.4v just to stabilise at 3.8GHz. My chip seems to hit a wall after 3.6GHz at only required 1.21V then need a massive increase at 3.7GHz.
My first Amd build is not as fuss free as my Intel pentium build. It seems like intel just feels more seamless to me even with the initial bioses for my H81 or previous z97. I am happy enough of the upgrade, I guess it need some tweaking.
I have the same one
