First AMD & OC Build

This is the third pc I've ever put together. It is also the first pc that I've used an AMD processor on, and the first that I've ever overclocked on. Some pieces like the drives i took from my previous pc, but i managed to save enough to buy other parts new (or at least new to me). I was trying to go for a machine that is mid-range and will last several years. I also wanted to have a bit of expandability, which is why i chose to go with an X470 board (may want to go to a 2700x at some point). I also ended up going with a theme of black and white, which looks really sleek (at least to me). I do occasional graphic design, so i thought having a 6 core processor would be nice to have, and so far it seems great!.

I started using the auto overclocking features of my motherboard and msi afterburner. For the CPU i was able to get it to 3.85ghz. My 1070ti is set to a curve, but should be around +175mhz. Since its my first time overclocking, i don't want to do anything too intense, i want to try to learn by taking small steps.

My ram runs at 3200mhz, and it took me a while to get it working. For my Asus board, i didn't know that i should have DOCP enabled instead of XMP. That was a "fun" learning experience (i suffered lol).

I hope to keep adding to this pc as i go along, with my next addition being a 500gb m.2 ssd for a game drive. i would also like to switch my 120gb 2.5in sata boot drive for a 250gb m.2 sata drive, since my other m.2 slot is a sata based one.

The little bust in the case was made at work on a 3d printer, i just really like Roman sculpture. I thought the white aesthetic would be accented well with it. The front fans are large enough that it doesn't affect my case temps. i hope.
