Description

After dropping my macbook (R.I.P) I decided it was time to build a PC. I was really skeptical at first but decided it would be a better in the long run. It will see a lot of streaming, video/photo editing, and possibly some light gaming.

Lots of parts were purchased, I changed my mind on a few parts and even went a completely different route (Ryzen 1700 + NZXT s340 midtower case was purchased). Ultimately I am fairly satisfied with the build besides the RED G.Skill Ripjaws. (will be replaced by Corsair Dominator Platinum in the future)

Also, please excuse the oily finger prints on the glass, did not realize it at the time. Will take better pics soon :)

...Possibly some light gaming.

Damn son... What type of "light" gaming are you planning to do? 2 player VR?

Beautiful build, though!

Red Ram just seems a bit out of place with the fairly monochrome theme of the rest of the build..

It is a nice accent color though, all the same..

Nice Build, and thanks for Sharing !!

I think the Corsair Dominater Platinum ram will go well with the brushed aluminum accents on the motherboard and graphics card :)

Hey, do you know if the fan that came with the case is 4 pin or 3 pin? Thanks.

What are the temps that you're getting with the H100i v2?

Pretty decent temp for hours of video editing and some PUBG. I do not remember from top of my head but no where near overheating.

I could probably get better results if I move the radiator facing the front as a intake instead of where I have it now as an exhaust.

Could you please do you benchmarks again and tell me exact numbers? I have the same cooler for the same cup I get weird numbers and it fluctuates a lot. I used the preapplied thermal paste that came with the cooler.

What kind of screws did you use to mount the front fans? Were they included?

Fan did not come with long screws. I had some black screws laying around that worked with it, had to trim them a little

You could hold on to the red memory and get this: http://www.corsair.com/en-eu/hydro-series-h100i-gtx-h100i-v2-color-kit

I have the kit and the red is not true on the site - its closer to your ram

Always a Mac person... Finally decides to give PC a try, thinks they have to spend Apple premium money to do basic stuff.

You've been ripped off for years by Apple, and swindled by their "ecosystem". Time to save money, get better performance, not have your hands tied or limited in software, and not stuck to a proprietary mindset.

you pay for the quality with a Mac system. being part of my job I know what it is that gets put into the systems and how much each component costs. and the most expensive part of any Mac is the design of the machine, apple spares no expense in making a computer as nice as they can. and as much as all of you who hate apple love to think, Apple computers have the absolute top-of-the-line parts that they can get from each product line they use in their machines. here is a price breakdown of a baseline 15 inch MacBook Pro:

CPU: i7-7700HQ -$412.00 RAM: 16gb SkHynix 2400MHz LPDDR4 -$288.00 GPU: $299.00 Storage: 256gb Samsung made PCI-E SSD- $175.00 Intel thunderbolt 3 controller-$75.00 Trackpad-$80.00 Display: LG made LCD-$259.00 Battery: $98.00 most other chips in the system and PCB-225.00 (ish) casing: $100.00 (made from one piece of aluminum)

total cost for manufacturing: $1,911.99 (give or take 100 dollars depending on the day) the computer is sold for 2400 dollars, then you have to take out the marketing costs for the computer, which then probably take out another 15 dollars on the computer so apple really only makes about 400 dollars U.S. profit on each one. to put that in perspective Dell, Acer, and HP make more from their computers in profit than apple does. Apple is not the end all be all of price gougers in the computer market.
