There isn't much of a difference between 2999 and 3200. I could understand the panic if it was running at 1333

I'm glad your issues seem to be getting sorted though. Rig looks great, BTW.

Thanks mate, I used to look at other rigs the same way years ago, took a lot of saving for this one, but hell it's worth it in the end, absolutely

Thanks dude, looking at water cooling options now. I'm thinking of throwing a Vega in then doing a full, CPU, GPU, dual radiator setup. I would do it with my 480 but since it's a custom PCB there isn't any blocks available (From what I've seen) which I will admit is a shame but that's life. And I won't lie running stable at 2999 is fine, but it's quite annoying for me knowing there's still headroom I can't tap into

If you are thinking of going Vega I would not block up the 480. Well, not unless you do what I did with my GTX 950 and just get a core block for around £15. I'll admit, it worked splendidly (temp drops 30c+ and I got close to 1600mhz !) but yeah, I would not invest in full cover with a back plate if you are contemplating getting rid.

That's what I'm thinking. Core blocks are tempting but it leaves the rest of the card exposed and only cooled by the case airflow, which I'm a bit wary of. Plus seeing the rest of the card exposed would just annoy me. Tit for tat

Thanks mate. Originally it didn't work fantastic. But I credit most of that down to the motherboard BIOS being hit and miss at best. Now I've had a few updates and I've got my RAM up to 2999 the whole thing works great. I wasn't expecting much of a boost from my old setup but I am pleasantly surprised. As long as MSI get the RAM speed sorted with the next AGESA update so I can run at 3200 as well as POST speed, I'll be more than happy. Otherwise I might be replacing the motherboard with a newer generation board like the upcoming X370 Strix.
