This is not a computer. This is ****.
It's also in the works..... I'm gonna wait a while and then either upgrade to Kaby Lake or Zen. I'm liking the idea of an all AMD build
It's a DDR3L motherboard, so it should be fine. It's on my list, though.
Mine is a 2.4 Ghz i7, 12gb of RAM, and a Radeon HD6750m 1gb. Works fine for video editing, etc. Runs world of tanks and thats about it lol
Really just for reliability and build quality. Definitely not in performance.
I own a MacBook Pro for work. And a gaming PC. Macs aren't for gaming. There for the people who don't want any problems. An almost autonomous machine that won't break. Other than that, go for PC.
I noticed that you overlap your monitors as well...... I do the same for my two until I get my third (ultra wide). Helps cut down on that bezel, and I enjoy surround gaming even with two.
Oh, and nice build +1
Looks like a decent build, but I would suggest getting a single large hard drive instead of two smaller ones for the same price. It would reduce heat buildup, power consumption, and space needed in the hard drive cages.
As for the Red Devil, it fits perfectly. I removed the hard drive cages, which means I could fit even the biggest of cards. However, If I hadn't, there would still be room for me to crossfire two Red Devils and they would be fine.
That's the ASUS ROG Front Base Dual 5.25" Bay Fan Controller. It works as a usb/audio hub, changes the eq, can monitor all system fans, change volume, and even do on-the-fly overclocking. It only works with select Asus boards but if yours is compatible I most certainly recommend it. Ran be about 80 bucks.
God that's a lot of fans in one spot. Nice build though, +1
Thanks! Took my awhile to do all the cabling.s
I was going for an aggresive-ish look so I chose this case. The Corsair can support more fans, one more usb 3.0 port, and is only about 60 bucks so there isn't much of a difference. Also, coil whine is caused by inductors, mostly on GPUs or other electronics. Fans generally don't create coil whine, just blade vibrations, air noise, motor noise, or in extreme cases bearing problems. I found my fans were quiet but when all 6 of mine are running at once it is very loud, that may be the issue.
I dont normally use the front panel audio stuff as most is wired behind and hidden, so I just ran it to the normal headers.
Nope, that one is actually replaced at this point, I guess I could just take it out of the list. Anyway, I bought the 1tb drive on sale before I installed any games so I just have a now empty drive sitting around. I never even installed it lol
It also has an HDMI port. Im not sure why it doesnt show on PCPP but thats how it's currently connected to my GPU.
I have an SSD in the part list. I bought this just before I installed windows, close call haha.
Crossfire, at some point yes. My motherboard doesn't support SLI so I went AMD to allow that expandability.
Nice cable management!
In normal induction for those who have ascended:
May your frame-rates be high and temperatures be low
That looks awesome but I bet two reference 980's would cause some nasty GPU Sag. How is it?
You Sir, are a genius
I would, yes. But if you are willing to shell out that extra cash, the 1060 would beat it.
I've looked into this as well. Here are my findings:
-The GTX 1060 comes it at $249.99 with 6gb of VRAM
-The RX480 comes in at 199 for 4gb, or 239.99 for 8gb
-Alone, the GTX 1060 beats the RX480 by a very slim margin
-The GTX 1060 uses more power, and does not support SLI
-The RX 480 supports Crossfire
-When two RX480's are in Crossfire, they are close to, if not match, the GTX 1080
-Two 480's draw more power than a 1080, but comes in for 300 bucks less
That said, if you have a powerful PSU and don't plan on upgrading after this new GPU, I suggest the 1060
If you have a less powerful PSU, go for the 480
If you have a powerful PSU and plan on upgrading more down the road, go for a 480 8gb, and buy another later.
Price for Performance, the 480 will win almost every time out of the 1060, 1070, and 1080. However, if you do not want to buy another card down the road, go for the 1060.
Nicely done, and I love the custom cables!
I was facing the same problem, but I couldn't find anything. Maybe we'd have to make another thread.
Looks awesome, well done for the budget. Could we get some pics of the inside?
Same Here! my build is all ASUS and Corsair as of now.
Ok, will take into consideration. Problem is, there isn't much room between the bottom of the motherboard and the top of the PSU. I would be worried about clearance, which is why I'm thinking some thin sheet metal might work. My case is painted to look really metallic and I'm not sure if glossy or matte would compliment it well.
I live in Richmond as well and am asking the same question. I assume we'd have to look for a metal shop or engraver.
That's EXACTLY what I'm doing. I wanted a 6100 just to get mine running before the end of the free windows 10 upgrade, planning on swapping in a 6600k and a custom liquid cooling loop. Also waiting for the RX480, gonna do crossfire.
Nice build, +1
Nice Skyline background +34
I'm checking it once a week, and I will eventually replace it with that stuff used in hair bands.
Thanks, I didn't want to buy an adapter so I used 8 thick rubber bands and suspended it up there behind the fan controller.
I'm planning on doing the same in my SPEC-02, let me know about your hard drive solution.
I used two SP140 fans from corsair in my SPEC-02. A little loud but works great.
I'm looking to put an H100 into my SPEC-02. Any suggestions before I do anything?
Nice build btw +1
Yeah, if reliability is good, you could have two RX480's with 8gb of VRAM each for around 500 bucks, and beat the 1080. Just a thing of preference, or if it comes to it, reliability and power draw.
Yeah, I was thinking about the 1070 or a 390x, but when I saw the announcement of the 480 I had to wait.
Nice build. Instead of waiting for the 1070, I'm waiting for the AMD RX 480. Seems like a good build.
How does the 380 perform when you are running 3 displays?
My build's only been running for about 2 months now, but so far so good. Pretty decent boot times and it gets the job done.
True, I just find it hard to maintain any laptop regularly, due to the vast amounts of dust and such getting in the already packed chassis. I try to stick with desktops when I can.
True, but most apple products are extremely reliable. You may not be paying a premium for raw speed, but spending 2000 on a Macbook for 10 years, is in my opinion, better than paying 500 on a Laptop PC every other year or so. I've never liked windows laptops anyway, just a personal preference.
I've tracked all the Janus builds and honestly, the builds are awesome but the story & reason behind them is better.
I have the same hard drive and SSD, and I'm pleased with them as well.
I also have the same keyboard combo. I think a lot of people go for them because it is cheap, but is serves me well and the quality and looks are surprising for such an affordable product. Great build
I honestly am a Mac fan, but I recently built my custom PC and I love it. No hate for macs, they are amazing productuvity machines even if they are a bit high. My rebuilt 2011 Macbook Pro is even good for a few games.
I have the same processor, an ASUS STRIX R9 380, and a B150 chipset board as well. I can't complain!
I have that keyboard and I love it. Also have the same fans, a bit loud but look and work great. Also have the same ASUS monitor. Love it too.
