I had a 1950x in my ebay cart when Newegg had them on sale over the holidays for $450US but never hit purchase. I have a zen 1700 (non-x) now and it has been great. I don't OC, just wanted the threads for distributed computing.
I like it. What differences did you see in temps between the noctua and the be quiet? I have been wanting to build a TR system but haven't yet. Now with the zen 3000 series nearing, I may wait to see what their offerings are before making the decision.
The one picture looks nice, but the price paid for some of your components seems a little insane. For 9k I kind of expected more. In addition to custom water loop, maybe look into some custom sleeved power cables.
Also, what exactly will this be used for?
I like it. It's different. It's got the "I work and I don't care what anybody thinks of me" attitude. Function over form.
Also for your PSU, have you checked the warranty? Some of those EVGA power supplies can have warranties up to 10 years.
That and Wii Sports was all I ever played on mine. I just finally got rid of mine last year when I upgraded my TV and no more component inputs. Switch is fun, but I miss the Wii.
Holy cow. That is a monster of a case. Looks great.
I have to agree with the others here. This has the possibility of being a great build, but seems to have been thrown together without a lot of thought. The cable management is zero, and if you paid that much for some of those items I hope they came with vaseline.
He mentioned they were cablemod modmesh
I like that purple. The color really pops in the dark photos.
Looks great! I like the small form factor, especially for being where you located it.
What are your plans for the 1700?
I love the orange and white man. That came out beautiful. And do I spy a wrx/sti in the background? I love my wrx :) looks like the same charcoal color too.
Came for the gaming computer made of 20 year old parts. Left disappointed.
Either way, looks nice.
Good job on helping out a family member. If he gets into gaming more seriously, you could toss in a 1050Ti pretty easily. Only thing I would recommend is to flip the cpu cooler and have it blowing the air toward the rear case fan. That way the case fan pulls the hot cpu air out the back, rather than it getting sucked in to the power supply.
Cool, thank you for the info. The OLEDs sure have spoiled me. I don't think I'll buy anything else unless there is another breakthrough in technology. The picture is amazing.
Very nice. How does it look on your OLED? 4k output is good? I have the 55b7p costco special that Ill be moving to the master bedroom, and just ordered a 65e7p for the living room last night.
Holy crap! This thing must have more coolant than a full size diesel. 4 radiators and 2 resis? I don't think you have any worries of overheating ;)
Nice build. I love the red, and the tubing looks great.
Very nice. If I had any woodworking skills, I would definitely do one of these. My dad is awesome at woodworking, has a whole shop. If he didn't live on the other side of the country, I would definitely be working with him to make one.
I like the creativity, and always enjoy a build that sets itself apart from the rest.
Very nice build. The purple looks amazing.
I like the setup. Very similar to mine. I absolutely love the Phanteks case (I am using the Enthoo Pro w/ tempered glass side). That was also my first build with an m.2, and agree the things are very small, but super fast (I am running a 960 EVO). You may get some extra performance from the RAM if you pair it up with another stick.
I am a member of a site called world community grid. They partner up with researchers that are studying various things such as cancer, aids, even looking for ways to make solar power better. Any results after analysis have to be made public, so it cant be used by for profits. As @Pcgamer097 mentioned, you can do folding@home (I believe that uses GPUs). world community only currently have cpu based projects for the time being.
Edit: my current projects that I run right now are the cancer and childhood cancer projects but there are several others.
Was thinking the exact same thing.
OP I'm glad you are better. I use all my computers idle CPU time to help researchers crunch. I usually donate all my CPUs to cancer research.
Very nice and unique build.
That's what she said.
I like it. If hdd temps are high, you could always put two drives in the top rack, and two in the bottom. I didn't realize FreeNAS was a RAM hog.
Amazing job, looks great. Wish I had the skills to do that.
The black and white looks great. I just used the black version of that case to build a system. I too had QC issues; the metal side panel had two tabs snapped off. I emailed a copy of the invoice, a picture of the missing tabs, and the next day I had a new panel on a UPS truck. Great customer service.
I have read in the past that too much RAM could be a bad thing and cause systems to slow down in certain circumstances. Have you tried removing some of the sticks? Maybe try just two sticks and see if that helps. Just a shot in the dark, not sure if it will help. You can also try removing any non-necessary components (extra HDDs, etc) and see if any of that helps.
