A few notes: I won't bug you with all the details, it's all working as expected, but there is a need to point out a few things.

Firstly, although all the fans in this build are under 25dB you can still clearly hear them in a fairly quiet environment, do not expect notebook-like silence. The most noisy part is definitely the front intake of the NZXT Noctis 450 case, but it's not something you'll notice when playing a song, movie, or a game.

Secondly, boot times. I first made a mistake installing Windows in MBR disk style instead of GPT, but I made a note of the boot times with everything set up that way, it was 19.5 seconds. After correcting my mistake and eagerly waiting to see how fast the Ultra Fast Boot is on the ASRock x370 Taichi motherboard with Samsung's 960 EVO M.2 SSD I was in paradise with my now 8.8 seconds of boot time.

Unfortunately the very convenient and pretty reliable tool for overclocking on ASRock motherboard called A-Tuning (ASRock Tuning Utility) was not able to start in Ultra Fast Boot Mode, so if you want to use it you'll have to suffer through the 16.5 seconds boot time. You can overclock with your BIOS, but in Ultra Fast Boot you cannot access it unless you clear your CMOS, so it's either:

  • having your PC constantly overclocked with 8.8 seconds boot

  • having your PC clocked normally with 8.8 seconds boot and pain in the butt changing clock speed

  • having your PC with 16.5 seconds boot and the convenience of overclocking with a simple slider

Also, forgot to mention it, A-Tuning achieves 4GHz on R7 1700X with RAM clocked to 3200Hz.

I'll include benchmark results if you'd like, just tell me what you want to see.
