NYXL fan perhaps? My top 3 favorite team too!
If you can afford a 1070, you just gotta afford a better cpu (ryzen 1600). Great build tho
I feel like you cheaped out on a lot of parts just to have a 1080 for 1100. It's impressive, don't get me wrong but for 150 more, you could have gotten a better looking build (Unless you're on a tight budget then just ignore me lol). Nice build tho
Im lucky I snagged a 1080 for 560 in November right before the mining craze. That gpu is super expensive
I was about to say, where is there a gpu lol
Good find on that gpu considering it is not as expensive as I thought. Great build and have a good day!
For the best value, go with ryzen 5 2600 (Or if really on a budget production build) ryzen 5 1600. It's not the best time to build right now due to mining and gpus. Another option if you don't mind saving some money for value, waiting for gpu prices to go down, and play relatively easy titles like fortnite and csgo is ryzen 5 2400g. It's got decent intergrated graphics that are actually useful. You should however do some research and familiarize yourself with PC knowledge (Bios, Overclocking, Cpu, Ram, etc.).
Ram has nothing to do with crypto currency, it's after ryzen launched ddr4 was in huge demand
How did you get that ram for 96.99?
How would you rate the mobo you are using to the z370 prime-a? Im looking into this build for an upgrade from my current one and I'll just swap my parts too.
32 gb of ram is overkill unless you are into production and even then you don't need 32 gb. You probably could have gotten a fully modular for those sleeved black cables that I personally like _^ . Cable management is actually kinda important for airflow but by your pictures I think you're fine. Good gpu find and great build!
An aio is a liquid cooler and is great if you are looking for temps strictly. If you are not overclocking, raising the frequency of the cpu, I advise you not to get one as they are expensive, unless you want a cool looking system. Also building a PC right now is a pretty bad idea as gpus are out of stock and are extremely above msrp. Unless you are impatient, you can get this build and get a 1050 ti or 1050 to hold its place for now, and get like a 1070 later on when prices drop (Good valued 1070 is around $380-430).
If you are at stock clocks, you probably didn't need an aio unless you were willing to spend money for looks
Do you still have kidneys?
That rgb is killing me
If this is your first build, I think you have a talent
This is a cool build but such a cool build (rgb and color theme) and 1050ti? Also why liquid cooler for ryzen 5 1600x, that's overkill. But still, this is aesthetically pleasing:)
g502 is a niece mouse, but it's ok
I think you could've just used the stock cooler, that cooler gives very cool temps, even overclocking!
Oh wait nvm I didn't see, you said you were gonna upgrade in early 2018, when the new nvidia line up will come out.
Same, I bought stuff overclocking capable and for that first time I might try ocing haha
Are you sure you need that budget of a card? I would personally go with a 1050ti
get a 1080. Better value and better performance. 1440p 144hz, then those requirements would need a 1080ti, heck even a titan v lol
You should try oc with that beefy cooler and the i7. Otherwise you kind of overspent your money, my view
Your gpu is in pcie 4, which will downgrade the card. Dont quote me on that but Im pretty sure evry card goes pcie 3
At this point I know you are trolling
Im sorry for your loss
Ok if you are going for overkill get intel
Threadripper is overkill for just gaming, the cpu is used for multitasking, for gaming just get a ryzen 5 or switch to 8700k.
Do you play any games at all or sometimes?
Why a threadripper when you could get an 1800x ryzen 7 and an x370 mobo, like a taichi? Also personally, liquid cooling is overkill for ryzen cpus. A beefy air cooler like noctua or a be quiet! is good and you could have gone with a 1080 ti with these tweaks! My personal take on this but again, this is your money not mine. And just wondering, do you use that optical drive for lots of reasons?
Damn powerful for a first rig! Hope you enjoy playing and engineering on this beast!
Note: Why and eatx when you could go with a regular atx?
Why a graphics card then? Maybe could've gone with more storage or ram? Idk, your choice, great build!
lincolnfriske I agree, I don't know what this guy is talking. I wouldn't spend my budget on an m.2 personally, getting b die and a good mobo is my priority. I'm not bothered by slightly slower speeds, a sata is good enough, especially samsung. Good purchase though, and if any problems arise then you can let me know!
hopper344 Not the best value unless you really want high speeds and the mobo can get very hot with m.2s if they have bad temp control. And yes a blower card is considered cheap and not high quality, spend 20 more bucks and get a way better cooled 1080.
Change the gpu, this card is blower, which has bad cooling. It is cheaper but more riskier. It should be good then and btw m.2 isn't necessary.
I wouldve gotten with one sata ssd and 1tb hdd. Also I see you stream and do picture editing, so I think ryzen would have been better in that case + it might be a bit cheaper. Great build overall though.
Late response, I built it and everything went fine! Thanks again!
Where did you get that 8700k?!
Never knew I actually gave you advice. I just thought you would take it lightly, but I was wrong. Glad I helped!
That why I said "or". Rx 580s can be found for cheap, just gotta look.
Am3 is not worth it. For $700, get a ryzen 5 1600 and gtx 1060 or rx 580 build. Way better performance with am4.
Wow, you miner. You are the reason gpus are overpriced. Anyways, thanks for the reply
Similar build to mine, hopefully I get a good chip for oc! I only hope. Im using an x370 taichi!
I am doing a strix 1080 and ryzen 1600 build soon in the same case!
Umm, a 1070 is a waste of money for 60fps. Get a 1060 then or 1050ti. You could of gone with a bit cheaper ram and maybe a cheaper gpu for not really a significant quality or performance drop. The bottleneck is going to be so high. You could have been a smarter person by just getting him a ryzen 5 1600 or an i5 7600k, and the performance would just shoot up.
Damn, that's a ton of m.2. Also, there are 3840x1600 monitors with g-sync, just gotta search some more
How is that msi armor gtx 1070 gpu? I have heard bad reviews about it, and talking with someone I know has used would be helpful. So, what are your thoughts about that card?
