Care to explain more in depth?

You can overclock if to 4.1 volts, but the jump from 4.0 to 4.1 required like 0.05 more volts for me which was not worth the performance.

I didn't have to update the bios. It came with a sticker saying Ryzen 2000 ready. I got mine from Newegg, but I'm pretty sure it should be compatible straight out of the box for most major retailers this late into 2018. If you have that motherboard without the updated bios, you can contact AMD and they will loan you a free AM4 CPU to update the motherboard with.

Unfortunately, the highest I was able to get stable is 4.1Ghz with 1.375 volts, which I felt was negligible performance improvement compared to 4.0 on 1.325 volts given how much more power it was consuming.

Yeah the ram is working perfectly. It's supported on the QVL list on their website. The RGB works well. You can use the GSkill or Asus Aura app to edit the colors

Thanks, I listened to your advice and moved the radiator up a few inches so that I could fit the GPU into the top slot.

This motherboard comes with 3 x16 PCIe slots. The first 2 slots are PCIe 3.0 x16, both running with the full 16 data lanes while the last one is PCIe 2.0 x16 which is only a little bit slower than the previous ones. I'm just using the second 3.0 x16 slot rather than the first.

The reason I'm doing this is because the graphics card blocked the motherboard RGB when I put it on the first slot, and the AIO tubing would push against the graphics card with a decent amount of force.

Yeah, the P400S case came with a RGB strip that I put on the top of the case to shine down. It uses magnets to stay in place.

Yeah you're right. I'm just salty the 1600 gets the wraith spire cooler while the 2600 gets the wraith stealth cooler.
