It has to do with a nickname I have for the friend I built it for, but your idea sounds way more creative. Glad you like it!

It was mostly for the sake of the minor performance improvements that the 2200G gave over the Ryzen 1200. The whole APU thing was just an added bonus, really.

Nice work! I love seeing HTPC builds like this, even if they aren't really that flashy.

Woah, talk about a blast from the past. You should post some benchmarks if you ever get to it, it'd be cool to see

I did not experience an issue with it. I slipped it into the m.2 slot and it worked. You probably got either a defective m.2 slot or SSD.

How does this PSU replacement fair (if I get a refund) https://m.newegg.com/products/17-151-093?

I'm going to contact EVGA and ask for a refund or replacement unit ASAP. Maybe I can ask for them to send a comparable unit that isn't a B3?

What the issue probably is is that the PSU's protection features do not work as planned because the thing cannot seem to handle higher loads.

My build is fairly low in power consumption, but if my PSU is already showing signs of dying (the sound from the PSU rail) I am not going to wait on this. Thank you for letting me know. O had no idea this was even happening to B3 PSUs

Thanks for the warning. Then it is probably the PSU making that sound. Please give me any sources if you have one. Thanks!

That's a good point! My brother no-lifes Rust and he has told me it eats up his 8GB of RAM at some points. Didn't really believe him though, figured he forgot about having Chrome tabs up or something.

The RAM was overkill, true, but I was mighty aware of that. I did it for the sake of using emulators & heavy multitasking. The extra RAM has come in handy sometimes. Glad you liked the build!

You're right. In specific, Samsung b-die is the best type for Ryzen. The problem is how expensive it is. I skipped it myself in my build. Just hoping it gets to 2933 and I'll be happy.

Keep in mind, Hynix-based RAM (such as your kit) has trouble reaching 2933+ with Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5. Ryzen 7 appears to not have this issue as often, so that could explain why it's stated @ 3200 on MSI's list,

Did you manage to get the RAM any higher than 2666? Considering this is a month old I figured it might work properly now.

Perhaps check out the Fractal Design Focus G series cases. Pretty good if you have a budget.

So according to my build, which also features a 580 Nitro+, some drive bays could be blocked due to it's size. Is this true, and if so, what bay(s) had to be removed to fit it? Thanks in advance.
