I agree I'd add one to the back, but it may not have enough space to vent depending on where it's set either way.
Looks great, though personally I would adjust your top fans to be exhaust instead of intakes.
If you have a cooler that gives the cpu better thermal performance, it will upclock single core as needed for games like that using XFR on the cpu.
its interesting its set that way with the cpu fan still blowing to the back. but i wonder if those fans just dont have any labeling on them for airflow since I see this mistake a bit more than I thought I would.
I agree on the airflow optimizing. There is a second fan at the bottom in what appears to be the first pic, but that top fan doesnt fill up the fan area its in at all. and those ssd trays are blocking airflow to the gpu. Honestly before spending money on a new cpu cooler, i'd consider looking at cases that might fit your equipment better to allow airflow.
It runs cooler as the 2600 and they are planning to replace with a 3xxx later, so no point in spending the extra money on that. 2600 is easy to OC to 2600x speeds if needed as well
I don't see OP claiming anything was bought new.
parts list doesnt match parts either. just report it.
yes, the items themselves are likely fine in that case.
when looking at the amazon warehouse item, it should say why its in their warehouse deals, i would just review it there.
no, typically the packaging is damaged so they cannot sell it as new. Sometimes the product is scuffed as well, but they list it clearly on the amazon warehouse items as to location and how far an item or box is damaged. I got an LG 34" freesync monitor for 200 a few years ago because the box was damaged and the monitor's base screws were missing. found screws at home depot and its basically brand new :)
About time they featured it :)
i'd make those top fans exhaust instead of intake personally
just for future reference in case you need to install windows again on any other machines, there is a windows 10 downloader you can run that will download the iso and set it up on a usb for usb installation. way quicker than a disc.
Was also thinking about that poor gpu being suffocated.
any reason in particular your front fans are not set up as intakes? just curious
Brilliant looking build :)
good choices with room for growth. only thing i probably would have done differently was getting a solid state hybrid drive, and using the saved money on the cpu
it let's you know that its got amd at heart with nvidia visuals
The cpu is an APU so it has a gpu builtin to the processor.
In your first and second photo, you have your 24 pin power cable, and above it, you have the small power for floppy drives or addin cards plugged into your fan header. I had to look at the third photo to confirm it was a power cord coming off the power supply and with your 4 pin molex connectors.
WAIT. you have a power cable plugged into a fan header above your 24pin power cord. disconnect that. it should not be plugged into that, only fans should be plugged into fan headers.
definitely reseat the components and double check all of the power runs to ensure they are pushed in all the way.
no, thats just the current pricing, their description says its not priced right but thats cause they didnt edit their list with what they paid
I'd recommend and SSHD if buying any sort of drive for storage space and speed unless you can spend enough to get a big ssd
its still better for them to understand it now if they upgrade down the line or when they build their next pc
i would move the radiator to a higher fan slot and make sure it is pulling air in from the front of the case. you want to have your radiator or lines a little higher than your pump to keep any air bubbles out of the pump. I would also check your mobo manual to make sure that the video card is running at full speed in that gpu slot, as it may need to be in the top pcie 16x slot to get full bandwidth.
yes i saw the dust filter up top, it would not be as needed if it was venting up though unless it spends a bit of time off
i understand, but my reasoning is actually more natural flow and dust related :P it'd be nice if you could get it a little cooler with those changes too.
i would flip around those front fans and top fans so you bring in air from the front and exhaust out the top and back.
Nice little build :)
good thing 8350's are cheap right now, would be a big upgrade for what you are used to
it has fans on the front, and im ok with the hard drive mount point :P
it looks good but my question is why the separate lan card?
games are what needed optimization more. the few bios issues on ryzen were worked out in the first month or so.
also, consider testing a different hard drive or sata cable. it could be a bad cable or failed drive as I have had that happen out of the box after a windows install.
depends on the static pressure of those fans. adding a second set on the other side for push and pull would be even better for later, but it will be better than it currently is.
flip them to pull air out. heat naturally rises, so you want them pulling the heat up and out of the case.
This, flip them around.
Mhz, not Ghz lol
At the time it was for long term planning like getting a 220w fx processor. But its still doing its job well for a friend of mine with all fans at slowest speed for a quieter case
crysis is poorly coded, which is why it became such a hit meme :) nice looking build, maybe some racing stripes for the vinyl?
judging from the photo you only had intake fans and no exhaust?
this is a must do.
probably difference in what was available vs cost, or could be a time thing. there arent massive differences between the cards, mostly efficiency and a bit more speed
Here are a few options:
The hard drive drop style, I have this personally and works well for backup drives that get swapped around:
A usb-c cabled enclosure which would work with your onboard usb-c slot for highest speeds:
A usb 3.0 standard cabled enclosure, which should still provide fast speeds but keeps your usb-c open for other devices.
i'd consider getting an external bay for the 4tb drive if anything.
again, maybe not magical for your exact use, but compared to other tasks, its a huge improvement, i wish java had better programming overall though. It's a problem software in most of the items i need to support that run using java. memory leaks are the worst bit
maybe not for java developer's, but other software developers may be using software that can make use of more threads. Sucks its not working out the best for you though.
maybe you could list some parts on the side? I can clearly see them, but i know some will complain
