Just saw them! All of them are awesome! Voted on every one of them! It seems like you're a PRO builder... :D I wish I could do the same one day, but for now I cant afford it :/ Would you tell your opinion about my PC? https://pcpartpicker.com/b/QZvnTW
But be HONEST! :D You being a pro, any critics and advice will be useful! ;) Also keep in mind I'm living in Bulgaria, where some parts and PC stuff are hard to find or VERY Expensive ;)
nice ITX! I rarely find ITX build that I like, but this Is one of them! Awesome job man! And you've done nice job with picking the right components!
Wow! You totally went for the looks! You dont need AIO for this CPU! A midrange Air Cooler can handle it! Also... 250GB SSD + 1TB HDD for storage was going to be better choice than these 2 SSD's! The PSU is very cheap, but thank god, at least it's 80+ bronze rated... (I woudn't buy it). Very Expensive fans! And very expensive periferials!
You spend a lot of money not on the hardware basically and the ones that are spend on it are actually, are spent on the wrong places... The only good choices I see are the GPU, the MB, Memory and the 144hz monitor!
Here: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/dFtzFG for the same budget! A lot better setup in terms of perfomance and still not looking bad!
I think you should had to buy a normal HDD or a hybrid instead of the 2.5" SSD and spend the money on better motherboard/cooler or GPU... Otherwise the build is nice!
dont change the case! This one is perfect fo this build and it's newer than the 460X! Also a bigger case will leave a lot of "empty" space inside, which doesnt look good :) It looks PERFECT! You can only change the MB for a white one (ASUS Prime for example) And my advice is to change the monitor (or buy another one for 2 monitor setup) with high refresh rate!
one of your memory sticks is not attached properly! Look at the photos! The latch is not completely closed! Otherwise nice build!
welll then... Good job mate! And as I said... AWESOME Build! :)
Hi! I was just admiring the build, but started to wonder...
Aren't you suffocating the gpu with these 2 fans underneat it, blowing the air out of the case? Because the card is trying to get air, but the 2 fans are blowing it out...
Yeah it looks awesome, but I think your gpu is getting just a little bit warm and probably a bit loud, because of this, and it's probably ramping up the fans a bit more, trying to cool itself when you're gaming... Maybe you can lower it to around 65-68 degrees under load if they were the otherway round and blowing air into the gpu... I dont know...
That's my personal opinion/wondering. Otherwise... As I said - It looks awesome!
thanks mate, I'm very glad I liked it :) I costed me all the money I got from working during the summer :D I was going to buy a second hand car, but the money were not enough for a car :D And at the same moment my old PC broke (I think it was the motherboard).
Well... I play, CS:GO, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Sniper Elite 4, Battlefield 3, War Thunder, The infestation: The new Z, Far Cry 4, Forza Horizon 4 (the demo) and so on... I'm planning to buy Rainbow 6 Siege, Call of Duty: Black Ops IV. and some other games.
Most of the games run at average 100fps, some of them are around 80fps (palying on 1080p 60hz panel).
Basically the build is more than I need, but I build it that way, because I'm going to use it more than 5 years :D And because the Ryzen 5 1600 is cheper, compared to the 6-core intel CPU's.
here it is:
(my PC costed 2035 BGN (bulgarian leva))
maybe in the US...
Here the intel core i5-8600K is more expensive... like $320-330, the cheapes 16gb kit of RAM is like $220.
Just take a look at the prices in the part list ;) the prices are different than the ones you will see if you build the same PC here. I changed them so you can see the difference between the prices in US and Bulgaria ;)
But yeah! If I was living in the US and having the same amount of money, the build was going to be a lot different :D
F.ck it... I'm just gonna create a part list for the same amount of money (I mean If I was having $2000, not 2000 leva) :D and will post the link, so you can see what I was going to build If I was living in US :D
well the temps of the GPU are high because I was running a benchmark few times in a loop (i think I run it like 6-7 times) and the 74 C was the max that the card reached.
The CPU is with the stock cooler and overclocked to 3.7ghz on all cores without even changing the voltage :/
otherwise the PC is running almost cold - 45 on the CPU during games as Fortnite, GTA Online, The infestation NEW Z, ETS 2, Battlefield 3 and few other games.
The GPU is runniny at 50-55 C in games...
Yep! Because I relocated the second one from exhaust to intake (to blow at the graphics card), but I'm going to buy another soon (same as the other two fractal fans). This was temporary solution.
You should change the orientation of the corsair fan! Now its working as an exhaust fan :D
Nice build, but you had to get a bigger ssd... (240-250gb would be better choice, when it comes to FAST storage).
And I'm talking from experience :D When you have SSD you'll try to install everything on it, and you'll fill it very fast :D My old 60gb SSD is already full (from windwos updates, not from programs) :D
Also, the HDD is a bit slow... you had to choose one with 7200rpm. (But if you already had it, then OK) :)
Still... Nice looking build, which I think will perform very nice!
PS: I was going to say that the CPU cooler is a bit overkill, but then I saw that you already know that and you already had it so... OK :D
Hi! How does the RAM perform? Some problems or tweakings to make it work at 3000mhz?
I'm asking, because I ordered the same kit for my build (B350 Tomahawk + Ryzen 5 1600 wih the stock cooler), but I know that the ryzen cpu's are very demanding when it comes to RAM (it wont be stable with every memory kits).
EDIT: Nice build by the way :D
Ummm... Micro ATX motherboard in this High end mid tower case!?
Come on! This case even support E-ATX boards... You should get an ATX motherboard with X470 chipset so you can use all features of the second gen Ryzen CPU you have. ;)
Also you should buy a single m.2 NVME SSD - Samsung 960 or 970 EVO 500gb and regular HDD for storage...
You also HAVE TO change the PSU! This is the cheapest 700W PSU I've ever seen! Just buy an 850W PSU from well know brand like Cooler Master, Corsair or EVGA (dont forget to look for 80+ Gold, Platinum or Titanium certificate and modular cables).
Also! For 1440p and 165hz you should look straight at GTX 1080ti. This GTX 1060 is capable of 1080p 60fps, not 1440p at 165hz. You should also change the RAM with FASTER memory kit - something above 3000mhz, because Ryzen CPU's are demanding when it comes to memory.
Another thing you COULD change too is the AIO cooler... with 240, 280 or 360 rad... if you want to overclock.
Basically now you have microATX build capable of 1080p gaming at 60fps with GREAT CPU, but terrible power supply in AWESOME and EXPENSIVE case that is made to fit a lot of high end hardware and GREAT MONITOR (but you're using 50% of its capabilities)...
Man... I love that minimalistic design! One of the best builds I've ever seen!
Even JayzTwoCents's build for Terry Crews isn't looking that good as yours :) But that is because of the colors he choosed for the build (that white, blue and red Old Spice themed colors)...
While yours with this metal tubes and glas and neutral colors is like... a DREAM! :)
GOOD JOB :)
With this i7-7700K Is it possible to use 2 m.2 SSD's(Samsung 960 EVO 250Gb) in Raid 0 + one SSHD Seagate Firecuda for storage? I'm asking because of the CPU lanes (if I'm correct they are 16)... Will they be enough? because I want to build a system, but I don't know if I should to use one M.2 + SSHD or I can use one more M.2 SSD's!?
Hey bro! The build is dope! O.o One of the best looking mid towers i've seen here :)
I just want to ask you, which 1080 you have? Is it the refference design from nVidia or it Founders Edition from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI etc.
Greetings from Bulgaria!
