Ok you said you will be doing light gaming so the GTX1050ti is dine with me.

But you def spent too much on the CPU.

The i5 8600K might still be alright.

But your PC def needs a SSD

It night and day difference with a SSD vs a HDD in terms of boot times. Games loading and even Windows updates.

honestly we need to report the video to get it removed

it downright bad advice and an not so tech savvy person will just destroy 2000 worth of PC parts by following their instruction

Got to love classic Win XP rigs.

Is the ram running at 1333MHz?

Because i have a similar board with a Q6600 with 4GB of DDR3

It has issue booting with 1600 and beyond 4GB of RAM.

As a ryzen 3 2200g user.

The stock cooler while good for daily operations is bad for OC. There is no copper center like the Ryzen 5 1600 and Ryzen 7 1700. Just a a hunk of aluminimum and a fan.

i running it stock CPU speeds in my HTPC and because of poor airflow. The CPU heats up to 60+ degrees at full speed fan mode.

I would love to get an unused Wraith Spire or Prism cooler to keep temps under 50 degrees.

Huh?

The GPU side of the APU wont be used unless you plug the HDMI to the mobo.

So the iGPU wont be active when the mobo detects the GTX 1060 installed

Also the Ryzen 3 2200g is a Ryzen 1200 with the iGPU side.

OC test shows exact same results in terms of speed.

Nope Ryzen has buried this platform since last year.

Many buddies of mine who were on the FX8350 CPU jumped to Ryzen 7 1700.

Big jump in fps like Battlefield 1

More planning could have been done to this build.

So many wrong buys here esp the CPU and Mobo combo.

For the same budget i could squeeze a Ryzen 5 1600 which is the newest 6 core 12 treads CPU

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zMhcMZ

It def weird you cant use Windows 10. Because my Q9650 build could run Win 10 without any issues. Drivers for the mobo are just the Windows 7 64bit drivers.

See if you can return the parts and get everything online or from Microcenter

Oh my! My heart skipped a beat when i saw picture number 4.

Sketchy way to install a TV.

Nice buy of the TV.

I got the same model but a 55 inch unit because my smaller living room. But huge jump from my old 46 inch full HD TV also from Sony.

I was confused as why you got 3 sticks of RAM when the mobo only supports 2 sticks until i read the description.

Still a nice build there

Watercooled Gameboy is def new to me

You def not the only crazy guy to think of watercooling something really odd.

I was thinking of watercooling my Samsung S7 smart phone just for the ***** and giggles.

It a fine phone but ran pretty hot during my gaming sessions that it unbearable sometimes.

There is Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace.

My luck isnt as good as yours.

We do have gumtree but some sellers are a pain in a butt to haggle.

1000 bucks for a 'gaming pc' which has a GT730.

facepalm

My best find and buys were prob from ebay and aliexpress.

That mobo he picked for the build is around 173 dollars.

Intel boards that are iTX with wifi are way cheaper.

Even a mid range unit like the MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon AC iTX is 150 dollars.

Even the Asrock Z370 Fatal1ty Gaming iTX AC is like 164 dollars.

A B350 iTX variant cost only 107 dollars.

X370 and X470 which has support for SLi and CF is wasted here because there is only one GPU slot.

The tape mod only works with the older Q6600 with the 1066MHz fsb.

The E8400 is already on the faster 1333MHz fsb

The decent upgade for this PC is more RAM.

He can go up to 8GB of DDR2 800MHz.

A cheap 128GB SSD even on SATA2 is pretty fast for boot up times.

Pop in a GTX750ti from aliexpress and this will be a nice sleeper gaming PC.

Thou that PSU needs to go just to be safe.

Some PC stores around Malaysia and Singapore sell old PCs rig like these for around 200 SGD or 150USD. Adding that cost of new/used parts of 114.5 USD

this PC should be around 265 USD average.

Not bad price and great for retro PC gaming.

Why an APU and a GTX 1050Ti?

The price of the CPU will get you the Ryzen 5 1600 which is a 6 core 12 tread which is miles better than the 2400g in multi tasking.

Pretty sure some B350 iTX boards might be as good as the X470. Some B350 iTX even has wifi built in.

Prices for the X470 is on the high side unless there was a good deal for it.

Ryzen 5 esp the 2xxx series work best with dual channel RAM. planning to add another 8GB stick soon?

I look at this build shaking my head.

facepalm...

Spend all the budget on the i5.

And cheap out on the GPU, no SSD and a cheap PSU.

Like LeMMingSlayeR

The build would be more balanced even with a i3 8100, 128GB SSD, Dual channel RAM, and a GPU like a GTX 1050 and a decent PSU like the EVGA 450BT.

It kinda weird you paid that much for old tech ep the CPU and mobo combo.

The Ryzen 3 2200G with a GTX 1050ti will still be ok with a lot of games except assassin creed origins.

Congrats on your first customer build.

Not bad selection of parts here but the only thing i will prob change here is the PSU.

The VS series are tier 5 PSU.

although the system here dont draw a lot of power.

Something decent down the line like a EVGA G3 550W unit will be a nice PSU.

Never cheap out on a PSU that powers the whole system.

I wonder if you ever played PC building Simulator. That game is what i am playing for my free time.

Great way to learn pc building and system troubleshooting.

hey man thanks a lot, the insides was heating up even thou it was only the main APU cooler, one 120mm intake fan and two 80mm fans

so now i added this to the empty dual 5 1/4 inch bay

https://www.amazon.com/EverCool-Dual-Drive-Triple-Cooling/dp/B0032UUGF4

it adds another 80mm fan to cool the insides and the Sandisk SSD

ok today i boot up the PC

temps are in the 30+ degrees

CPU cooler speed at least 1300+rpm

Comment reply on ApocPony's Completed Build: AMD Console Fusion

  • 19 months ago
  • 1 point

those were the normalized temps after running loads like web browser, YouTube video and video playbacks for prob like 30 mins to a few hours after a movie.

using a mixture of RealTemp, HardwareMonitor and Ryzen Master

i will log the temps again from boot up.

But what weird is the swab and the bottom are now black or really dark grey after the wipe which is odd.

The only reason i could think of now is prob the ink on the APU IHS got mixed into the thermal paste hence why the bottom is stained

it prob also my TV age.

this is a Sony Full HD unit from like over 10 years now.

I tried all video modes so far not much luck here. :/

prob due for a change soon to 4K

the reason for the cooler upgrade is prob because of the noise and temps.

the PC case is the CoolerMaster Elite 344 which hardly have any ventilation, only one 120mm fan intake and no exhaust fan when i bought the case.

I added a rear 80mm fan and zip tied another 80mm fan to the side vent for both exhaust and temps was still a toasty 40+ and highest was 50 degrees because it also sitting in my TV cabinet.

The stock CPU fan is currently at Turbo setting whatever Asus calls them and minimum fan rpm is hovering at 600rpm. I seen the fan go up to 1.6k rpm keeping the CPU at 38 degrees but could hear the fans whirring.

The Asus BIOS defaulted my CPU to 3.85GHz with the RAM stick at 2400MHz as these are 2400 kits from GSkill.

But for some weird reasons,the settings trips up the display output like as thou the OC failed screen black out and comes back but no GPU has stop responding message on the GPU side which is even weirder when i have yet to do any OC on the iGPU side. All voltages were set to Auto. CPU at 1.4V, RAM at 1.2V and iGPU 1.1V.

I have tried backing off my overclocks in Ryzen master but since it does not apply every time i reboot the PC.

I just went back to BIOS mode and down clocked the CPU back to stock 3.5GHz and it now fine.

I suspect this board BIOS is wonky in some way just like the MSI H97 board on my dads PC. On the MSI, if you set the iGPU RAM buffer above 512MB. That PC will refuse to boot up or restart. The later BIOS revision fixed part of the issue but I just left it at 128MB since it was also another web browser PC.

Currently the thermal paste is from CoolerMaster as during the testing phase. The stock thermal paste was ruined after pulling the cooler out 2 times.

Not sure if you encounter this as well. When i use alcohol swabs on the used thermal paste on the cooler. It darkens the aluminum part of the cooler and it stains the swabs.

congrats on the feature.

lol at the temps as well

i would be like holy wtf bbq at that funky temps if i didnt look up the forums

I also using the Ryzen 3 2200G with the Asus B350M-A for my HTPC build

but among the BIOS i have used the past few years.

I prob like MSI BIOS screen more than the Asus one.

I have this weird bug where on my TV screen, the Asus BIOS screen is horribly off center to the right that i cant see like 1/3 of the screen unless i plug a PC monitor to the DVI port.

HDMI works fine when its on Windows 10.

Just annoying when i need to tweak settings on my BIOS

also the BIOS is not really updated, so my iGPU can only have 1GB of RAM buffer which is a bummer if i want to play some games which may need 2GB RAM buffer.

at first when i saw your build i was like, is that really a wooden case?

until i saw in detail it just a case with a wood wrap

  • I need this!!! *

that cooler is just a nice fit for my PC but i am out of budget after my initial purchase of 450 dollars for the APU, mobo and DDR4 RAM combo.

Yes import taxes and retail markup is what kills us when buying PC parts.

Agree here But lately i cant seem to find the Ryzen 3 1200 on sale. Pretty much the 2200G has replaced the Ryzen 3s and the Ryzen 5 2400G has negated the point of the Ryzen 5s CPUs to exist.

Of course for those who still have a decent GPU. Then the 6 core Ryzen 1600 would be the best mid range CPU to go for ATM if you have a semi decent GPU from the nVidia 900 series or RX470/480 series.But given the crazy prices of GPUs due to mining.

The Ryzen APU is the better deal since coin mining on the APU is pointless.

I recently upgraded to the Ryzen 3 2200G for my HTPC as the previous mobo has died.

The Ryzen 5 2400g even at stock will be equal if not better than the GT1030 in most games.

And the Ryzen 5 2400g chip is a 4 core 8 treads unit which is way better than the last gen APUs based on the Bulldozer/Excavator.

Also the price of the Ryzen 5 APU is like 169 dollars and it cheaper than his 200 dollar combo

where did you get your PC parts?

because without any reasons stated as why you get the A8 APU with the GT1030

the Ryzen 5 2200G or the Ryzen 5 2400G should be the better buy over the older gen APU+GPU combo
