I put this together for my son's gaming rig for Christmas 2018 - and he did help putting it together. Everything came together with minimal issues. The B350 PC Mate motherboard, ordered off Amazon, came with updated BIOS out of the box, minimizing any headaches.
System is now overclocked to 3.9 GHz (CPU) and 1.35 GHz (GPU). Ran into some issues with memory stability at 3000 MHz (largely timing related). Backing it off to 2933MHz using the matching XMP-2 profile has made it rock solid. The standard AMD Wraith cooler supplied with the CPU is working well keeping temps under 70°C.
Connected everything up to an old Mac Cinema Display, plus an old Dell LCD. Case looks great and is well made, even for a sub $70 case. My son is super happy, coming off his i3 HP laptop, and is looking forward to further upgrading his PC "with his birthday money".
Unigine Heaven (1600x1024) - 699/27.7 fps
Fortnite (Mid-low, ~800p render resolution) - 45-60 fps
Minecraft (Window mode, full 1600x1024 window) - 80-114fps
War Thunder (High, full screen 1600x1024) - 60-80 fps
Added one more stick of 8GB RAM and what a difference that makes. I also managed to overclock the ram to 3466MHz (16-20-20-41) and it has been stable since.
