Lol rookie mistake, you forgot to post your parts list.

Forum Topic "First PC Build. Some assistance required."

themoosemessiah 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

... this is your first build? jesus. good luck mate.

only advice i could throw your way is to grab some CableMod custom cables for your rig. Im assuming youre gonna be showing it off, so you might as well make sure it looks pretty. Plus, youre already spending what, 3-4k on it, whats another 120 for some cables right?

Forum Topic "I got an extra 300$ what to spend it on"

themoosemessiah 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

I wouldnt worry too much about your ram speed, but you could always grab a 24 pin cable for your mobo power, or some extra fans for cooling and colour themes, or another 16gig kit of ram to fill out and pretty up the board a bit. Personally id grab a good monitor. 27 inch, 144 hz freesync, But thats just me

Forum Topic "Clueless and wanting a gaming computer"

themoosemessiah 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

I Shant make a list, but heres some guide lines for you! Light reading incoming...

One; the CPU. Honestly, right now, there are really only two options worth considering as far as im concerned. The AMD Ryzen 2 2200g and the 2400g. The integrated graphics are more than enough on the latter to rock most games on 720 and medium settings at 45 ish frames (basically console level capability)

Two; The Motherboard. Make sure you grab one that has enough room for any future upgrades, and has all the bells and whistles you need. Rgb headers, a handful of SATA ports, maybe an Nvme slot. For a budget build, Id probably shoot for a Micro Atx. Im not sure what prices are like in AUS, But here in CAD, i could get an asus TUF gaming for about 120. 4 ram slots, 2 pcie, plenty of Sata and rgb support.

Three; Storage. Nothing complicated here, I just thought id remind you of the superiority of SSD boot drives. If you can fit it on your budget, id definitely try and grab even just a 120 gig ssd for your os and boot programs. Trust me, its worth it.

Four; PSU. Make sure you grab something able to handle your future upgrades. Full or semi modular is always best, but it comes down to budget. That being said, Go on Newegg and Check the refurbished powersuppies. Every PSU ive ever used has been refurbished, so ive gotten them over 50% off.

If you end up going with the 2200g or 2400g, you wont need to buy a GPU right away. You can always grab one later if you see one come up for sale that you want, but the iGpu in the CPUs are better than most low end cards. Dont worry about a CPU cooler, as both the AMD cards come with a Wraith cooler, which is more than enough to cool it, especially if youre not overclocking. Dont be shy about spending a little extra on the case, Thats the part youre gonna see the most, so you might as well get one you like.

Good Luck brother!

themoosemessiah submitter 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Definitely. The ram was just able to fit, but i had to offset fan to clear it, and it might as well not even be rgb since i cant see it at all. The other issue was that theres less than 1mm between the top of it and the side panel of the case. I can fit 1 piece of paper between the window and it, but as soon as i try 2 pieces, it doesnt go lol.

Forum Topic "First PC build for general use"

themoosemessiah 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

My Only advice to you, is this: Check around your used classifieds, as well as Ebay to see if you can find a good cheap used 1080. with RTX being out now, lots of people are upgrading and trying to sell their old cards. Id also look into buying a third party cooler, maybe something noctua or BeQuiet, or a nice 240mm AIO, especially if youre gonna be making that CPU work. Other than that, It looks like youll have yourself quite the beast there.

Forum Topic "Cheap build help"

themoosemessiah 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Ditch the Pentium and the 1030, and grab either an AMD 2200G or 2400G instead. Theyll outperform your current cpu and gpu, and might even save you a few bucks. If you do save a few bucks, grab a small ssd for your OS.

themoosemessiah's Completed Build: Fools Gold

themoosemessiah submitter 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Im no expert by any means, but I can tell you what I did, in the hopes that it'll help!

1)All of the Heatsinks and Shields were able to be removed with a philips screwdriver, however I noticed as I was putting the board back together that some screws were longer/shorter than others. As of now, I havent noticed any issues because of that, but its worth paying attention to. 2) I used a fine grit sandpaper (200) to sand the entire thing down to get rid of the factory colours and patterns, and to help the paint stick better. I tried to get into every nook and cranny so my paint would really stick evenly. 3) I chose a starting angle, and lightly covered the whole area. Make sure to take your time and let the paint tack up or dry between each coat, and dont go too heavy with it or itll drip and pool. If you notice you missed a spot, just lightly go over it again until youre satisfied. 3.5) I used a plastidip spray paint, marketed for car rims. It sticks well on the sanded surface, however if you wanted to change colours, itll come off nicely with some rubbing alcohol and elbow grease. Im sure any type of spray paint would work though. 4) I let it dry in the sunlight for a couple hours, and lightly sprayed over it with a heat resistant clear coat. Not explicitly necessary, but since the 2700x can get toasty, I didnt want to risk anything catastrophic.

Hope this helps! Good luck with the rig

I haven't seen temps higher than 70, and that's after forza horizon 4 and black ops 4 on max

themoosemessiah's Completed Build: Fools Gold

themoosemessiah submitter 6 Builds 3 points 3 months ago

I sanded them all down with a very fine grit paper to take off the original patterns and colours and to help the paint stick better, then used sever light coats of a gold plastidip spray paint!

themoosemessiah's Completed Build: Fools Gold

Forza horizon 2, and Black Ops 4 on maxed out settings, 1080p 60 Hz, and I haven't seen it crest 70c yet.

also, grab a 120 gig ssd for your os, and check for a used 1080 or 1080ti. The used market is saturated with phenomenal cards at the moment.

Make a parts list here on pcpp, and as long as you have compatibility filter enabled, youll be compatible.

Forum Topic "Looking to upgrade off this part list"

themoosemessiah 6 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

If it were me, Id try and pick up: 16 gigs of 3000 or 3200 ram, as long as your mobo can run it. If not, Grab the fastest speed your mobo will go. Amd and Ryzen especially love high ram speeds. This would probably be your best performance boost, but also the most expensive. Either a 120 or 250 gig SSD (with your OS and the rest of your Boot programs on it). Seriously, an SSD will blow your mind, and for the cost of a small one, its easily worth it every time. A Pci-e Wifi Card is definitely worth looking into if you use a wireless connection, as youll more than likely get a faster bandwidth out of it than you will from that usb one. And of course, Case fans. Im always a (excuse the pun) Fan of extra case cooling, not to mention the extra 'huzzah" some nice, coordinated rgb can add. Depending on what youre looking for, you could go Enermax TB RGB, with their Beautiful discreet Halos, or Thermaltake Riing's with their insane array of colours and patterns.

Forum Topic "Will my PC work?"

themoosemessiah 6 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

My advice would be to ditch the G4560 and 1030, and pick up a ryzen 2200g instead. The integrated Graphics are comparable to the 1030, however the cpu side of it is more capable.

Coss63's Completed Build: Boba Fett Slave I (First PC build)

themoosemessiah 6 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Have you considered making it look more like its namesake with some vinyl wraps, stickers and paint? That front and top panel would look great with a Boba Fett Green wrap on it, with painted rust over the top, and the side panel windows just screaming for a Mandalorian Skull on the side. Or some faded looking red Wrap under where the tempered glass meets the case, to make it look similar to the visor on the helmet! Either way, its a great looking Build!

Plus your case doesnt have any external drive bays, which are necessary for basically any fan controllers.

Forum Topic "Do I need a fan controller?"

themoosemessiah 6 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Simple answer? No. You dont. Or, shouldnt, rather. You can get a fan splitter cable, which basically takes your one header and turns it into 2 or 3, and then youll still be able to control your fans via mobo software!
