Description

Stock AMD cooler does fit if you remove the top plastic shroud. (a couple clips, and a screw)

A very lightweight build, exclusively for streaming movies and web browsing. No gaming.

Cannot quite handle 60 fps 4K content. No problem with 2K 60, or 4K 30.

Nice. I'm curious about your 4K 60Hz statement, is it that the cpu/apu can't keep up, or something else? HDMI or DisplayPort?

The 2200g should be able to handle 4k 60fps video playback just fine...

Which is why I'm curious as to the impediment in this build.

Slow cpu. So how it "should"?

Let's not forget that it is the same speed as a kaby lake i5, which was the goto gaming cpu only 3 years ago. It's also faster than a lot of 4k laptops. I said "should" because it depends on other factors, most importantly the motherboard. Also, OP confirmed it works 3 months ago.

oh really. don't you think it's more like Ivy Bridge i5, and believe me, i did R3 1200 (no oc) built from dead i5-3570k (no oc) - performance was the same ****, if not worse, LMFAO

A stock 3570k and 7400 have almost identical performance. I don't know what your definition of **** is but most of would understand that anything since sandy bridge is probably more than capable of 4k playback with a gpu that supports it. Yes, it isn't anything earth shattering, but it also doesn't have to be.

SOLVED: Better late than never ;)

2200G handles 4K 60 just fine: I was using an UHD TV that claimed 60Hz, but they lied :O

Not really sure why. I haven't really looked into it yet. Bought a new HDMI cable, and tried on Windows and Linux. I May try a couple different sticks of RAM at some point.

Does that motherboard do HDMI 2.0? I think you need that for 4K 60Hz. IIRC not all B450's do HDMI 2.0. Any chance of using displayport instead?

Is that a Cheerwine I spy? Best soft drink ever! Drank it all growing up. I was so sad when I had to move west and no one sold it anymore. Oh, the memories...

Oh, right, the PC. Excellent work, top notch HTPC!

Thanks for comment about 4k. I have a order for htpc, so I'm searching if ryzen 3 "will do". The gpu will be of course gtx1650 (cheap&no gaming), but puttings pentiums or athlons in htpc is dumb imo. :) so it will be ryzen 5 or i3 in my case...
