Needed something new for the coming years. Got everything new except the GPU, that will be a later upgrade.
Don't think the RAM is in the right slots. From left to right, they should be in slot 2 and slot 4.
afaik its correct.
The manual says this:
Channel A: DDR4_A1, DDR4_A2
Channel B: DDR4_B1, DDR4_B2
A1 and A2 are the two slots closest to the CPU. So i put it there ;-)
It should be in A1 and B1. You're running single channel right now.
Yeah found out afterwards..
didnt notice any difference tho ;-)
Any trouble getting the gpu to fit into the motherboard slot because of the chipset fan/heatsink ?
No i had no problems, i had some problems unlocking the gpu from the slot tho, because of the heatsink of the CPU. Had to use a long screwdriver and precision hands, which i sometimes lack ;-).
Is the CPU being bottlenecked by the rx580?
No the one clear bottleneck in this build is the GPU. Thats why i already replaced it by an RX5700 XT.
