I would recommend it as long as you take the HD Audio issue into consideration yes, however I, despite updates, still cannot overclock my ram over 2133mhz however i believe this is due to my ram having poor timings but I'm not sure.
OK thanks, good luck with that i know there can be massive performance increases with the higher clocked memory.
Hey, I was drawn to you're build by what you said about your motherboard, If you're struggling getting you're memory to 3200 try watching a video on a youtuber named blunty's channel. He is at an MSI meetup and they show him how to properly oc ram on all of their motherboards, its pretty different to many other ones. Here the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZgpHTaQ10k but if you don't trust me I understand look it up for you're self! Let me know the results im considering buying the board!
Depending on where you buy it and from who you can buy stolen copies ie: paying for them with stolen credit cards
i would definitely pick up some cable clips and put the pcie cable through the shroud. +1!
Yeah cause thats what wives are for... profit
its good but that cable management is killing me, get a few cable ties and try hide the mustard and ketchup!
For most games at the setting you'd be playing at using a 1060 require and will continue to for some time no more than 3gb, ofc if you were purchasing a lower memory variant of either card 1060 or 480 the 480 is a better option as you will not use over 4gb in vram
you pay for the operating system and software, like you pay for windows, just more expensive...
Dont! Ryzen 3 is coming out soon and for under 160 dollars you will be able to get budget 4 core cpus at pretty decent ipcs!
not great for ocing though, also ryzen needs all it can get temp wise to keep a stable overclock
Nice build and a great story but can i ask if you are experiencing any bottlenecks regarding the i3 and rx 480. +1! Also are those evgas own cables?
Coolest build hoping to build something similar, one question however, How was your cpu cooler? Any leaks and what were the temps like. awesome build again +1
Really cool build I actually found you in the completed build for the case and was pleasantly suprised to see that you would be using such similar parts to me, i5 6600k, Phanteks p400s, EVGA power supply, WD HDD, Asus z170-a mobo and even the less common cpu fan. I was unsure of how it would look but this build sold it to me!
One question though... Did you ever find an alternative to the 12v power supply?
Also would you consider using some sort of RGB fans for the color changes you talked of?
