In the photos it doesn't look like your CPU power connector is plugged into the motherboard. It should be on the top left of the mobo, there will be a 4 or 8pin cable coming from your PSU to plug in on your motherboard. This is in addition to the big 24-pin you already have plugged in. I'm guessing this is why it isn't working but just going based off photos here!

Heya. Nice build! Where did you get the backplate for your GPU? I just picked up the same one on eBay for a used parts build I'm doing and the backplate could spruce it up a bit.

Looks cool! I am confused how the second GPU is connected to the mobo? There's a PCIe x16 to M.2 adapter goin' on?

It looks like the GPU says "RTX" on it, what is in there?

Always love me a good sleeper build.

not really! the CPU is 4c/4t and boosts up to 4.2 GHz. my timespy and firestrike scores are on par with some other folks running i7 4790k and even i7 6700k. it's a pretty well balanced system!

Thank you!

I am still really happy with the Rift S. After all the news about the Quest linking to a computer I think I still ended up with the right headset for my use case. Most of the time I play with a set of cheap earpod headphones in, or I use the integrated speakers in the headband, depending on the game. I haven't tried running the audio through the soundbar/sub because I like the directional-ness of the other two options, but maybe it would be cool for some content.

This is great advice. I just picked up an i3 9100F and it is crazy how good it is for the price, especially compared the older i5's as you stated.

I would definitely recommend giving it a go! You can usually sell the system and break even or make a few bucks to make it worth your time as well.

Wow you modded the top using a dremel? It looks incredibly clean. Can you share a little about your process there? Did you use a stencil?

It really looks like it was CNC'd or laser cut with how nice it is. Great work.

It's crazy how an M.2 NVME drive is actually a decent option within a tight budget these days. Makes cable management so much nice and is so speedy.

I'm just blown away at how quickly that became a thing!

Nice build!

I hope you're trolling lol. He is showing the entire computer, and you're right, it doesn't have a graphics card - like many other builds on here. This is a site for showing off your PC build, which is exactly what OP is doing here.

I knew this was an issue with these motherboards, so with this one I just kept the original case and power button assembly! I decided to pimp out the case vs. try a power button hack. The guy buying the computer didn't even notice it was a Dell until I mentioned it.

I wish someone made an adapter!

You can build a pretty phenomenal rig out of used parts for around $400, vs the $200-250 you would pay to do the upgrades on this one you are talking about, and you'd get much better performance out of the newer parts.

I would just clean this thing out and maybe do thermal paste/refresh windows install and call it good until your next system! Thanks for sharing w/ us.

Some people really just either don't know the value of what they have and don't research used pricing before selling (happens all the time) or they know and just want to get it gone as quick as possible. It definitely happens, and people like PCPP members have a good eye for catching deals like this.

Yo how did you change the founder's edition Geforce logo to purple? Mine is liquid cooled now but when it was air cooled, that logo could only be green. I saw they had some not-finished software that said it might control the lights but I tried it at the time and it didn't work. Great build too btw.

hey there, no problem! I do the same thing when i'm doing a new build, find people who used similar cases in the past etc. good idea!

so yes and no to your question. i installed an extra thin 120mm fan that was 12mm thick (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002CYPWTG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1) to ensure that i would have room above the cpu cooler, but to be honest i think a normal 120mm fan would fit there as well. you can see in my photos that the thin fan i used isn't even visible when it's installed, so i think there is room.

that is right, no one is arguing that that asus strix board is the most cost effective option for the build. i am arguing that it is not "ridiculously over the top" as you so dramatically stated. for someone getting into PC building that kind of language and criticism can be discouraging, especially when it's not accurate.

Comment reply on animeislove2's Completed Build: budget gaming pc

that is just a marketing family for Asus, it doesn't directly translate to better performance and nowadays it is definitely not "top of the line" for them. the strix board is basically the first board they offer with some frills like LEDs, but is otherwise a pretty basic b350 board. you can also see the price listed is $119, which really is not overpriced for a mobo. again, if this were a $200 X370 board i might agree with you but in this case it's just not ridiculously over the top at all.

it's a b350 board, and that r3 1200 is cheaper than it has been. it's a great budget option if he wants to OC. i think saying that it's a "ridiculously over the top" paring is a ridiculously over the top statement. you're being dramatic. if he had some X470 MEG board that would make sense, but this is a good looking reasonable b350 board.
