What fan is that? Is it really lighting up the whole case or do you have an LED strip?

Under normal load I'm at about 55C. Idle, I've dropped from 45C to around 35C which is a pretty big improvement. I'm only running a 212 EVO, after all.

Is it safe to have my voltage setting at Adaptive mode?

Vairfoley 30 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

I would look up a specific tutorial on youtube for a similar motherboard and RAM you get.

You may or may not notice a difference between an M.2 and a SATA SSD. I would look up benchmarks for your specific workloads, as well. It's all about your budget and what's worth it to you.

Otherwise, your build looks good although I would suggest getting a slightly cheaper CPU and a better GPU. You'll get better performance overall in games.

Forum Topic "idk if this build is good"

Vairfoley 30 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

I'd go with this one. Maybe an RX 580 instead if you want 8GB of VRAM. Otherwise, this would be a great build for 1080p gaming at 60FPS.

I've used a 2x2GB kit of that Sector 5 ram before in a budget build. Never seen it anywhere else, haha.

I love the 2400, too. That along with the 1050 Ti is a great combo.

Forum Topic "Which List Is Best for Me?"

Vairfoley 30 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

You don't have to worry about that. What it's basically saying is that with your M.2 SSD has to steal bandwidth from 2 of your SATA ports on the motherboard. When you have the SSD installed, 2 ports will be disabled/in use.

This won't be an issue because you will only be using 1 of the 6 ports on the motherboard for your 2TB SATA HDD. Your SSD will use 2, and you'll have 3 left over.

Forum Topic "Which List Is Best for Me?"

Vairfoley 30 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

1) I gave you a higher quality motherboard. I also brought down the price of the M.2 SSD to a comparable model. I also made sure you had a great PSU. Otherwise, all of the lists are very similar. The two most important factors in determining the performance you'll get out of each build are the CPU and the GPU. The 2700X and the 1080Ti are both top-of-the-line units. You won't find much better.

2) The monitor has FreeSync, yes. I would highly recommend watching this video on FreeSync/G-Sync. It will explain it a lot better than I can. In short, no, it's not necessary, but it is nice to have.

Forum Topic "Which List Is Best for Me?"

Vairfoley 30 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

How about this? I know it's $50 over budget. I'd change to a normal 2.5" SSD if you want to bring the price down. Maybe a B350 motherboard instead. Decisions, decisions...

Absolutely.

The 1060 6GB will shell out a bit more frames, it looks like. If you wanna spend ~$50 more you could go with that.

Note the guy in this video is using a 7700K as his CPU. You're frames will be a bit lower, but not by too much. He also has everything cranked up all the way. Mess with a few settings, and you should have no issues at all.

  1. It comes at a slightly higher clock speed and it's unlocked. Those are the only differences.

  2. Big coolers can be a pain. Might as well have 32GB if you want it to last a long time.

  3. If you're not overclocking, your cooler is more than enough.

  4. A 1070Ti is WAY more than enough for what you're doing. I downgraded you to an RX 570 which is still going to be overkill if you're not gaming. With the extra money in your budget, I was able to get you a gorgeous 4K IPS monitor which will be great for anything.

Your SSD should be fine. It depends if you want to spend the money or not for piece-of-mind.

Nice and cheap don't usually go hand-in-hand with case fans, ahah. Usually fans won't make too much of a difference in cooling/airflow but if noise is a concern I'd definitely do some research.

Have you thought about switching to an 8600K and a 1080TI? You PSU might be cutting it a bit close, though...

Ryzen is going to be a little better for gaming and 16 threads will be more than enough for streaming. I would go with the 2700X if I were you. That also left room in the budget for a 1080Ti.

I messed with your SSD setup a bit. I would recommend having one bigger drive rather than a bunch of small ones. It will make things easier.

I also got you better monitors since there was room in the budget. No need to worry about upgrading later!

Forum Topic "Gaming PC - Changing the build"

Vairfoley 30 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Your list looks good, but I don't think switching to the 8700K is a good idea. The 14 cores of your i9 is going to help you out in rendering a lot more than the 8700K. You're not getting much better gaming performance switching, in my opinion.

Also, gaming AND rendering at the same time is only going to work if you make sure to manually dedicate cores to each process. Otherwise, it's going to spread it out over all cores and inhibit your gaming performance, as far as I know.

I would adjust your cooler 90 degrees so the fan pushes air out the back of your case. It might improve airflow.

I second this list. It'll kick some serious butt, for sure.

  1. A more expensive motherboard won't give you better performance unless you're trying to overclock.

  2. It all depends exactly what games you're playing and how many you want on your SSD. I recommend a 480GB at your price point.

  3. The monitor looks good to me, but I would definitely get someone else's opinion because I'm not too picky about my monitors.

Now, if you DO insist on getting a 2070, you're going to have to make some compromises to hit your $1600 price point. I switched you to a Ryzen 2600 along with a different SSD, RAM, and a higher quality PSU.

If you're dead-set on getting the 2070 I won't stop you, but it's gonna be tough finding one at MSVP.

I love how Sheldon silently judges me in the background of any build you post.

Vairfoley 30 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

I actually don't. I have an 8700K.

I used to run an 8320, but then I decided to spoil myself with the best I could get whether my wallet liked it or not, haha.

Wow, that really is a stark difference. It's always so satisfying cleaning up an older PC and getting a fresh install of the OS. It makes it like a whole new computer.

You can't get 8 threads any cheaper than that. Nice build!

Looks brand new! I'd love to see a before and after pictures if you have them.

Vairfoley 30 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

OP, I'd also go with this build. Looks very nice.

Very cool. You just added an easy 5 years to your build. That 4790K still kicks butt.

Forum Topic "I've experienced artifacts for the first time ever. Is that bad? (on Dota 2)"

Vairfoley 30 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Yeah, it seems unlikely it's the thermals. If it's only happening with Dota 2, it might be some freak issue with your GPU and Dota. Did you end up resolving issues in Shadow of the Tomb Raider?

Replacing the GPU might fix the problem, it's just whether or not you feel that would be worth the money/effort.
