alexsack 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Man i'm in love with this setup. Color scheme and whole vibe of the room is on point, not to mention the little beast of a PC you've got yourself. Really well done, and quite the man cave.

But i gotta ask, where the hell did you get that 1080 for $400 at ? lol

alexsack 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

would there be a reason it wouldn't be easy to make it your boot drive? i've never used an m.2 drive but i imagine it's the same as designating a regular SSD as your boot drive no?

demonflesh's Completed Build: 4790k Gaming Rig

alexsack 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

I want to add to this question: what are the temps like with a vertical mount vs. horizontal if you know? I've heard vertical tends to run hotter in most cases

howdydoodat's Completed Build: First PC Build! Ryzen 5 1600/ GTX 1060 White workstation/gaming PC

alexsack 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

appreciate the feedback this was super helpful!

wckorb's Completed Build: The Box

alexsack 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Serious question: is it normal for those cpu & gpu temps to be cookin like that? I mean obviously you're pushing out a lot of power.

I have a very basic build with a 1060 and ryzen 1600 so that's why i'm asking... for future reference.

Very nice build btw !

howdydoodat's Completed Build: First PC Build! Ryzen 5 1600/ GTX 1060 White workstation/gaming PC

alexsack 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

Man I've got the same CPU and GPU. This is a great budget build that shreds most if not all games with at least 60 fps. i'm thinking i might upgrade my GPU to a 1070 in the future possibly a 1080 once prices drop a little more with the 1180's coming soon.

I"m afraid though, you think a 1080 would bottleneck the cpu?

FlatoutDude's Completed Build: RyzenBox

alexsack 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Great build man. Did you ever think of getting an SSD? What's your startup time like with just the HDD's?

alexsack's Completed Build: Once You Go PC You Never Go Back

alexsack submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

yea thanks dude. appreciate the actual constructive criticism rather than someone ridiculing what I've spec'd out lol. If you think that i need a better PSU then i'd agree with that. And yes i'm looking to definitely upgrade within another year. Probably a new GPU once the 1180's come out (if they ever do). As well as more Ram, and more storage. I have so many options for upgrade here, so i'm happy with what i've got currently

alexsack's Completed Build: Once You Go PC You Never Go Back

alexsack submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

First of all, i spent about half of what that card costs. What you fail to realize is that these are the parts that PCPP has currently. Not what I paid. I paid about $70 less for the GPU, paid half of what that wifi card is, and I got a 32' curved monitor for $180 with Gsync. So before you ridicule please ask. And idk wtf that SSD is that you've spec'd out, but i'm not about to buy some ******** SSD that i'm not familiar with. If i'm being frank, i spent less than what your build shows there. I also work for an IT company and can source the majority of this stuff at wholesale.

Nitsy24's Completed Build: PC build numero uno

alexsack 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Killswitchkitten's Completed Build: R7 2700x | First PC Build

alexsack 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

I built with the same mobo in a similar case(s340). youre right it's clunky and you have to move the fans around a bit

Nitsy24's Completed Build: PC build numero uno

alexsack 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

I like the look of that AIO in comparison to a stock cooler. I legit just built inside the same exact NZXT case with the same exact mobo except mine was the 470.

I gotta ask, did you end up having problems with the wifi when you tried connecting? i had so many issues so i ended up getting a pcie bracket to connect to the mobo as a wifi extender.

ElHugo34's Completed Build: VaderDown

WellfareWALMART's Completed Build: 2018 "Budget" Ryzen Build

alexsack 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

This is reassuring. I'm literally in the same boat. Going to build a budget build, first time pc builder, and know everything i know strictly from this website and YouTube. Only difference in our builds is I'm going with an SSD. What's your startup time like with the HDD?

Btw great build!
