PSU is solid, I have traced it down to a motherboard problem.  The mother of a board goes into a hybrid shutdown, no POST beep, so the way to make it work is to reboot immediately after the first boot up.  After that it is solid.  I am replacing the mother of a board either this weekend or next with an ASUS Crosshair VI Hero board.  Gigabyte customer support sucks @ss, and they apparently don't care to even contact me after I filed a request for RMA.  

 

Also on the PSU the EVGA site claims that I only need a 450-500 watt PSU for this build!

Murph I know you are waiting on getting a Crosshair VI but just a heads up, don't update the bios on your gigabyte board just yet if you get a prompt for it.. http://forum.gigabyt...-thread?page=24

Oops, I updated to F5 a couple of days ago.  It is a Gaming K7, and I have not seen any change so far.  I got the Crosshair VI this morning, and it is going in tomorrow.  I am sick of this board, just sick and I had such high hopes.

Updated the motherboard, and this thing FLIES!  Photoshop opens in 2 seconds compared to 10+ under the Gigabyte motherboard.  The whole system seems to be running faster and better for whatever reason.  Amazing.  CPU-Z shows an upgrade from 1584 multicore to 3854!  Things are just snappier, and more responsive at this point.  It had to be a really bad motherboard.  I hope that Gigabyte fixes it on RMA.  I finally was able to get them to respond.

I played games all afternoon, and it looks like the motherboard change might have been the "Right Thing", so far.  I am going to send in the Gigabyte motherboard,  and I want to thank you for letting me know about the F5 BIOS problem.  If they had smoked my processor through their carelessness, then Gigabyte would be asked to get me a new processor.  After it gets back (or is replaced), I will get with you.  The guy I spoke with yesterday said that it sounded like bad capacitors.

The performance boost you got with the switch is huge. That's really shows how bad that motherboard was. Most of these manufacturers either flash/repair bios or send out another motherboard. I think the way the repair depots work they may end up switching it out.

So now if Gigabyte fixes or replaces the board with one that works, I might possibly build a Ryzen 5 1600 system for the kids to play games on downstairs.  Modest specs, 16 gb 2400 ram, 500 gb ssd,  1 tb Western Digital Blue 7200 rpm and an Nvidia 1060 card or Radeon 580 card of some flavor, with a 650 watt PSU.  I'll use the TV as a monitor via HDMI.  Or I might just get rid of it, it all depends on GIgabyte.

1600 is a nice CPU, also something to look if you go that route is get 3000mhz Ram. With Ryzen cpus, Ram speed actually has a noticeable impact on performance (this has not always been the case with memory clocks) On the builds I've done I've benchmarked before and after clocking the memory and there was an obvious change.

Waiting on the RMA of the motherboard, but this system runs great now!  Super fast, stable, and I love it.  Bad motherboard goes away, and the computer just works.  Amazing.

I LOVE THIS SYSTEM!!!!  The Asus Crosshair Vi Hero motherboard is what did the trick, this thing SCREAMS!  Now the next project upgrade is a GTX 1070 card, and a second ASUS 27" monitor.  Then Trident RGB ram (32 or 64 gb).  The next project after I get the RMA back is to think about building the kids a system for downstairs.  But if they don't clean their rooms up, they get bupkis.

Also I have recently started seeing code 40 showing up on the LED on the ASUS mobo, compared to the "normal" 24.  I notice when 40 shows up I have issues with the keyboard.  This morning I could not access the internet for love nor money till I rebooted.  But I am not sure if it was a hardware issue or an ISP issue since the computer could see the network, it just could not get anything to load.

I have the new monitor and it is nice.  2x 27" ASUS PB227Q monitors at 2560x1440.  So far things are running fine, other than some minor software annoyances.  Nothing like the motherboard disaster.
