Great deal on a budget x399!

ASRock X399 Phantom Gaming 6 sTR4 AMD X399 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock X399 Phantom Gaming 6 sTR4 AMD X399 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Has most of the features of the higher end boards, but only supports 180w TDP. Very good value for the money. Running a 2920x in it. No issues during install.

Cons: Memory is a bit finicky, list of approved memory is pretty short. You are limited to mostly gskill and hyperx on the high end.

Excellent case!

PC Power & Cooling ZX Series 850 Watt  80+ Gold Fully-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply  (OCZ-ZX850W)
PC Power & Cooling ZX Series 850 Watt 80+ Gold Fully-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ-ZX850W)

Pros: Great PSU internals. Silent operation. Modular

Cons: The heatshrink on the motherboard side of the ATX connector, It runs about 2.5" up from the connector and it is massive. It hits my memory modules, and it is as stiff as a board. I was unable to bend the harness nicely to tuck it. Cable management was a pain with the ATX harness it was so stiff. The video card power connectors also had a huge amount of thick heatshrink around the contectors which made it very hard to bend the harness. And there seem to be other things under the heatshrink on both the video card and ATX connectors (capacitors?). Don't know but they are BULKY.

Overall Review: Overall great PSU, but the harnesses are too bulky and stiff
