This is awesome! The Gigabyte B350 boards are fantastic!
I hope they are, I have the exact same board and just finished lapping my Ryzen 5 1600 last night, and a custom VRM heatsink. Hope it overclocks like a champ
I would love to see the heatsink! Is this for a new rig? Keep us posted.
It isn't large. It is flat copper bar with aluminum angle attached with Arctic Silver thermal adhesive, and then attached to the VRMs with Arctic Silver thermal adhesive. Anything to pull heat away from those chips should help. Going to run the Corsair H110i for cooling
I edited this and put a few images into an Imgur album. Picture with the heatsink on VRMs is first
Holy Shine! That looks pretty good, would love to see the temps on that; I'm sure it's going to make a difference.
New rig, Ryzen 5 1600, 16 GB Corsair Vengeance RGB 3000 ram, Gigabyte GA-AB350 Gaming 3, Rosewill Cullinan, Thermaltake 3x120 Riing RGB fans, 3x140 mm Thermaltake Riing RGB fans, Samsung 960 Pro 512 GB M.2 NVMe drive, Corsair H110i water cooling (going to replace stock fans with 2 of the 140mm Riings),
I lapped the processor to a mirror finish last night. Going to lap the waterblock tonight I hope. The Cullinan interior is going to be painted with Testors UV reactive orange (Ryzen colors).
Haven't decided on PSU or GPU yet. Depends if Vega is actually available at launch.
Never played with RGB before, so I'm building the system outside of the case to see how that pans out.
Thanks so much for offering this motherboard to someone in the AMD community.
It's a sweet looking Motherboard. Got the right colors too. Best of luck to everyone who enters!
Thank you RTP for the giveaway! So many fist bumps for the best community in gaming!
