Please pet the cat in my honor
More like RWB, am I right!? Anyone?
Yeah as long as you don't need them to have any super tight bends, they are a little stiff. Look at my early photos vs new, you can see the difference in the cables and how much better they look. Difficult to beat them for the price, there are better options but you will spend 2-3 times as much. I also used them in "RGBlue" if you look at my other builds, "Dont kill my Vybe" is cable mod basics.
I use braided extensions for all my builds, prefer the plastic braid vs cloth. Plastic extensions keep their shape significantly better and are usually larger in diameter. Other than that I think a good case is key, NZXT cases have awesome cable management. PSU install is last, only feed whats necessary into the case, everything else tuck out of sight. Zip ties can also be your friend for organizing whats being hidden.
Thanks, I think it turned out nice too. Wasn't sure about the case at first but it was easy to build in, has decent cable management and the fan hub made life very easy.
Yeah he was happy, he had tinkered with computers before so I let him do the bulk of the build. I just guided and did the wiring at the end, he was all smiles when we finished and it powered on first try lol
Thank you! It has definitely improved over time, good cable management is HUGE. I don't game a ton, but it does handle whatever I throw at it quite well.
Yup, this is it chief. One of the best setup/builds I have seen on here in a while.
No problem, all your major components should include everything you need to get the PC up and running.
It comes with pre applied paste, which I used. I considered buying Thermal Grizzly to use as an alternative, but Amazon was sold out at the time. No complaints with what was provided, I sit around 50-55c under load.
Clean build and setup, nice work
I started way late, like binge watched every season during the finale season late. Personally I wish there was more night king, such a bad a** character! Seriously, when he came out of the sky on that dragon I about came off my couch. I even knew it was coming, and it was still an incredible scene.
I wouldn't change it then, it is honestly what caught my eye and made me view the build. As someone who works on a computer, and has nothing to do 7 hours a day, I spend a lot of time on PCPP. Don't think I have ever seen someone make an OE cooler look as if it belongs lol
Very nice, the case fans look fantastic with the OE Ryzen cooler.
I love just about any clear liquid loop, so thumbs up from me. She is a beaut, and that distro plate is cleeeaaaan!
Normally I don't question what I see on posts, but being that temps are hot (pun intended) on my mind, is your CPU not running hot? 87C seems very high, even under load. I understand that I am running different hardware, but I use a very similar cooler and sit around 55C under load. My CPU, according to PCPP, should put off more heat. Curious to see what others think, maybe someone with a 3rd gen Ryzen chip can chime in.
GoT was alright but that season 7 finale was LIIIIIIT
My exact thought, its hilarious
Quality stuff. Fortunately for me, my cats do NOT climb on top of my PC. However, my setup could use more beer. CHEERS
That GPU is so attractive mounted upright
This is awesome, hide those bills!
I'm not gonna lie, I clicked because of the cat. However, the build/setup is clean and the beer adds a nice touch. This post speaks to me on a spiritual level.
I must say, I enjoy a Titanium build
If you ain't forst, you're last.
Oh you fancy, huh
Nice forst build, even better ghost
*exclusively cooled by Corsair
Super clean setup, nice job
There are not many locations, but luckily I have one 40 minutes away. CPU/motherboard bundles are really the only big bonus though, everything else is actually marked up it seems. They do price match, so the markup is not an issue. Convenience is huge, nice to have the ability to shop a full spectrum of products in stock.
You can fit a Ryzen 5 2600 in a $750 budget all day long, especially with third gen being recently released. If you have a Micro Center near, they have bundle deals of CPU and motherboard to save $30 in addition to the already reduced prices.
I really like it. I am a sucker for clear liquid loops, especially with how simple and clean the lines are. Good usage of space, nothing looks over crowded or bare. RGB coordination will go a long way, as said.
I believe ya! Building is definitely gratifying, I push building vs buying down all my friends throats. Just thought "First Build" was comical, usually think of dinky builds with poor cable management. Not everyone (noone) goes straight to a custom loop with top tier hardware, but, YOLO.
FiRsT bUiLd (lol), seriously though, killer build
DUDE, this is way too cool.
Very clean and classy, love the colors and usage of space
I just know the exact RAM I paid $210 for exactly a year ago, is now being sold for $80 looooool
You may have to BIOS update the motherboard to work with that CPU, which is why its flagging a potential compatibility issue. May want to look at like a B450 board, like you had selected in the other list. The board you have selected will work, just may not out of the box, might be something to consider for simplicity. As far as RAM goes, 16gb is plenty, I was referring to the speed such as 3000mhz or 3200mhz. RAM prices are so cheap right now you can probably find a faster set for another $10-$15, shouldnt be a huge concern either way though.
If you are not overclocking, do not buy the "K" (unlocked). Also, https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000025694/processors/intel-core-processors.html
I would forget the CPU cooler for now, one will be included with the CPU. Use the $60 to choose faster RAM and a good power supply, to better support future upgrades. Also use the 7200rpm HDD
Hardware, clear liquid loop, RGB coordination... Nailed it
SWEET clap BABY clap JESUS clap
Before or after deductions, weekly or bi-weekly, cause I am looking at 19 paychecks lol
Looks like a decent build. The 2700X is one of the better options for gaming/streaming without spending a ton, 1660Ti can more than handle high FPS 1080p (friend has one). Yes that is a lot of storage, but if you're downloading games it will fill up quick. I personally have a 250/500/1tb in my build and all are over 50% full. I feel like a barely have anything downloaded.
Just checked it out, looks good! I love how thin the design is, the exposed heat pipes look great too in my opinion. Go team MSI lol
I may be slightly biased, but the Titanium is such an attractive GPU
I don't have that kind of patience for behind the scenes cable management and it shows
Very cool concept
