Description

I had a an old dell optiplex before this PC, it ran games fine but couldn't edit videos well or play any extraordinary games. For Christmas I got $200 towards the gtx 1050ti that I was going to replace the old AMD r9 card in it before, since I also got a 1080p monitor and it made the card run at full blast. This went fine until I want to install the card. I had never modified a computer before, and forgot to unplug it in a fit of excitement. I killed the power supply. I bought a replacement and its fan ran at 100% at all times. This was a terrible issue since I couldn't go into the bios, so I gave up on it, i was broke and no one was selling the exact power supply I needed. So I kept the 1050ti and waited. My goal was to build this computer by at least the end of the year. Then around my birthday, the same month I built the computer, I got about $600 from my family (aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc). This allowed me to buy my hardrive, then the mobo, power supply. The case was paid for by my parents, (even though I wanted to pay for the whole thing), along with the 2200g which I then had to stick with, which I am okay with. and then waited another 2 to have someone come over to make sure I didn't screw up again. Another week later I finally got my boot drive made after handing off the flash drive to 2 different people, then installed windows. And thus my computer was finished, along with the drivers and software/games I needed. So it took a long time to actually set everything up and get all of my parts but now I have a computer that can render pretty fast, run games at 100 fps, and record smooth videos. The other stuff in the list are things I already had, or small things I needed.

build notes: I did mess up though during the build, when putting on the cooler I accidently put the amd notch thing over the first and second ram slot. I didn't have any thermal paste though so I just left it until I upgrade the ram later on. the one problem I did have was that the led strip that comes with the case isn't compatible with the motherboard, so I had to buy a usb strip from walmart.

Does your memory run at 3000? I have the same motherboard and i cant run it faster than 2400...

Do you have 4 sticks of RAM installed?

I only see 2 sticks in both the part list and in the pictures so I assume it's only 2 sticks of ram.

Though 3000 ram is more like 2933 on ryzen.

yes, for whatever reason team Vulcan runs normal but other sets don't. You have to update the no I is from their website

So your team set runs well? I might replace my kit with a 16gb kit form them... Because my ram only runs at 2400

the motherboard and ram combo works well, the a stock doesn't need to be updated since it comes apu ready and on top of that they have a list of ram supported. it's a horribly organized list, it only shows product numbers.

go into your bios and turn on xmp and save it to 3000

Nice job for a first custom build! I would suggest moving the stick closest to the CPU into the slot to the left of it (for dual channel goodness). You should be able to reverse your CPU cooler with its current thermal paste if you put it right back down again, considering the build is fairly new.

I'm just going to wait until I get the other two sticks, which I'm planning to do soon.

Now is the time. Doing research for my build and RAM prices are set to go up in Q3 of this year.

I also bought the same motherboard but do not know how to download the drivers without a wifi adapter. Also, which drivers do you need?

  • 17 months ago
  • 1 point

you have to have a Wi-Fi adapter, they sell them for 40 dollars at Wal-Mart, and you just look up a stock ab350 pro4 drivers and the website comes up for stock, then you scroll down to download, then drivers

Did you have to do a bios update for the Motherboard?

  • 17 months ago

not originally but just a little bit ago there was an update, but It was working fine on the last update.

The motherboard came Ryzen 2000 ready correct? The CPU worked out of the box?

yep that is correct, there is a new bios though and I did update it, it was working fine before though

Thermal paste only cost around $6 it would probably be worth it to move the cooler to get the most out of your ram.

yea when I upgrade I'm going to move it and such, and probably change the cooler too.

if someone asked about the ram speed, the bios shows 2400 sorry guys

Hi, currently building a pc and need help. Were you able to hit 3200mhz or 3000mhz with this set of memory if not what was the highest speed you got a stable OC thanks in advance.

I didn't oc, but I've seen people get to 3000mhz, the 2200g had a bios update and before that I couldn't get into the bios correctly, but everything was saying it was running at 3200mhz but it's running at 2440mhz. there will be updated in the future to make it work correctly though, and it doesn't take too much of a toll since I'm using the 2200g, it's going to be upgraded. What cpu are you using? I can tell you what to get based off of it.
