Well good luck, I'm not sure that I can help you.
Yes, in red. It may be RGB, I'm not sure, I haven't got any proprietary Sapphire software.
I haven't ****** with oc so IDK, but maybe try clearing CMOS? Have you ran into any instability issues?
Because that's an outdated card that kinda sucks.
Buy a sabrent rocket for an ssd. It uses TLC NAND instead of QLC (more info found here https://youtu.be/OffzVc7ZB-o). Its an NVMe SSD and has great value. Unfortnunately, you can't clone onto it which is one drawback.
Looking at your build, I think that it makes more sense to go X570 than it does here, but I'm still on the fence. The tomahawk has a good VRM so that won't be an issue, but you may value some of the features a higher end board will give you. X570 will give you PCIE 4.0 (this only helps for NVMe SSDs that use PCIE 4.0 (your one doesn't) and doesn't really matter for gpus. The reason to go with X570 is SLI support and future upgradability. If I were you, I would get the tomohawk and use the 50 bucks saved to get more storage.
Going for a high end ssd whilst cutting on the CPU an mobo is poor spending imo. I think that prioritises the wrong things.
660ps are reliable, they just use QLC NAND with SLC caching, so as long as your not downloading the entire Internet every day, you'll be fine.
They hyper 212 is much better than stock. Don't know where you got that notion from. It looks better and cools better.
MSI are launching the B450 MAX line of motherboards, basically just their regular B450 MOBOS but with out of the box compatibility for 3rd gen. The tomahawk is there as a placeholder for the tomahawk max.
Better parts list IMO:
Dear Pcpartpicker team.
Please do not use parametric filters for storage. You will get something that is faulty. Ram is OK, because off brands still use Samsung or micron flash storage but for storage. Please. Don't use parametric filters.
Also you can definitely squeeze a 660p nvme ssd in there.
ATTENTION! MSI B450 MAX MOBOS ARE COMING OUT, INCLUDING THE B450 TOMOHAWK MAX. THESE ARE B450 BOARDS WITH 32 MB BIOS AND OUT OF THE BOX 3RD GEN COMPATABILITY.
Ghosting is when the frames almost lag behind like a ghost, hence the name. It is usually caused by a slower response time.
This build has a severe case of parametricfilter-itis. You use parametric filters and you find cheap **** that breaks in two seconds. You can get much better hardware for just a touch more money that won't break in 5 minutes.
Lol good name.
Fellow AMD fanboy here. Why illuminate your cooler orange? Make it blue, hurts my OCD lol. I assume you went with the Phantom Vega 64 due to price? Also, you listed a wraith max in parts but that is a stock CPU cooler on the cpu. You also went with far more power than necessary, you could run this on 650 watts probably. Still, looks amazing!
More photos please!
Is that the acrylic or mesh front panel? I love your build, looks amazing!
Why did you mount the cooler so it’s wonky lol.
Also maybe tape over the Radeon logo, the red clashes heavily with the blue.
Otherwise, cool build!
Pretty damn good! I dig the colour scheme! Looks great!
Cheers! Love your pc.
Hmm. Loving the look of this PC but going for crossfire seems questionable. I would've gone with a gtx 1070 ti or (if you need AMD) Vega 56 for instead. But you nailed the aesthetics so good job there.
Holy **** this looks amazing, if I had some spare cash this would be in my backpack. Out of interest, how do you have enough friends with SFF pcs to hold a LAN party? Generally I just book out a ‘PCBang’ (I believe that is what Koreans call it) (there is one near where I live in the UK) and play some TF. I’ve encouraged my mates to get into the game and provide me with some serious competition.
Love it! See if you can change the fan on the cpu cooler, or hell even go with and AIO. I’m really digging the colour scheme but I think you underspent on your GPU, a 1080 superclocked from EVGA would suit the build nicely and give your build some extra horsepower and longevity. Aesthetically you have absolutely nailed it and it is clear that some serious effort went into this bad boy. Thumbs up from me!
I can answer this for him.
There is no inherent performance difference between X470 and B450
However, the VRM configuration does matter and manufacturers tend to put higher end VRMs on higher end motherboards.
However, this only really matters for heavy overclockers. If you just want to game with minor overclocks and you aren’t putting custom closed loop liquid coolers or using liquid nitrogen you should be fine. Honestly, I have a Gigabyte b450 Aourus Pro WiFi which has probably the worst VRM out of the B450 motherboards but it overclocks nicely, has some fancy looking lights and has two addressable RGB headers to fit my Liqfusion and my two LED strips.
If your are planning on hardcore over clocking, your should research VRM configurations of high end boards such as the Asus Crosshair XII or the Aorus Gaming 7.
Hope this helped.
The difference between B450 and X470 (in terms of the actual chipset) is NVIDIA SLI support (X470 supports it, B450 doesn't). AMD Crossfire is supported on both platforms however.
Sexy AF! Love it! Thinking of making my own build, with a black and blue aesthetic. I'm stuck on the case. I kinda want the h500 but also the meshify c and the h500m and oh god please help.
You went OTT on PSU and storage but great black blue build! I would've saved a buck and gone for some cheaper RGB fans (like putting some LUX RGB fan frames from phanteks on the stock fans). I'm thinking of doing a similar but cheaper PC with a B450 tomohawk.
Hey dude, I'm planning to build this PC:
Your build looks amazing and I want something similar.
I wish there was a blue edition of that mobo.
