Personally i love that mouse, but i rarely game dpi intensive games, so not sure if im the right person to ask. Im sure there are nice that are better for pure gaming, but this is a great all found mouse :)
Yeah I guess it's a little disproportionate - I only thought of creating a build here on pcpartpicker when I was done putting it together. Back then I just put up a few pictures of the pc and monitor. Later i added more pictures of the desktop as i added new keyboard, mouse, speakers, but i can see it looks a bit weird with the many monitor now that you mention it :D
Ah ok - well I didn't really run any tests myself, it's a bit unpracticat to take the m.2 on the back on and off :) but I guess if I got a stronger gpu i would also get a x570 without that limitation. But for now it runs just fine ')
Well it's true that it forces the speed to go from 16x to 8x, however according to this test the bottleneck is around 2% for a 2080 ti:
I doubt i would ever notice this in a real life scenario, so went for the two m.2 drives :D
And thx btw, I can highly recommend the monitor :)
Yeah I guess im pretty lucky living in a country with very strict consumer laws - a company selling items on the internet is obliged to return practically any item for a full refund within 14 days of purchase here :) the bios has had four revisions since the post in your link though - think they made a lot of improvements on some of them, if nothing else. Fingers crossed that you figure it out :)
Odd, I have never heard of that issue, nor has it been a problem for me :) haven't experienced a single bootloop with this build so far.
I wish i could say - i had the 2600 before that (bought it with the motherboard to be ready to upgrade when the 3000 launched), and i updated the bios before installing the new 3700X. I wouldn't expect it to be, unless i could see a new production date on the box :/
No problem, good luck with your build :)
I had a i7-6700k, 1080 ti and more or less the same setup running on the sf450 gold before i upgraded to the sf600 platinum and it was running very well, couldnt hear the fan what so ever. As i see it, 600watt is more than enough for my current setup, i honestly never hear it either :) and if you are getting a 2080, i think it would even be fine with 450w, although 600 is obviously better for the reasons you mentioned.
Its been a while, but as i remember it, it was a pretty tight fit, but i managed to use most of the cables that came with the psu. The only cable i bought was the BitFenix 24-pin ATX extension - 30cm - black. Other than that corsair also sell extention cables sleeved like the high end that comes with the platinum series.
I had a 2600 before i upgraded, so it was updated already when i got the new one - i usually update if its available regardless of the benefits :)
Ah thanks, but i think i got that covered already :)
sure - it can even run two at the same time :P
Hah, yeah I probably could - also, should probably find something a little more impressive to show on it than a single browser :D
While I don't have the ftz01 specs on hand, the specs for the Prolimatech says:
"Moves 54 CFM of air while providing 0.9 mmH20 static pressure. The high airflow and static pressure allow the Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 to perform well as both case and radiator fans."
I would suggest a minor improvement to your build, if you feel like it at some point - the fans included in the ftz01 are not pwm, and I thought the case-fan for the cpu made too much noise for my liking.. ended up buying the Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 PWM 120mm Black, that is also 15mm thick, and the improvement is huge - much less noise when idling, but it still has all the capacity of the stock fan of the case.
Thanks again for the input :) The CPU-fan was correctly installed, I realised, so no room for improvement there - it idles in silent mode at around 35-40 :) Installed the fan as on your picture, so all is good and well there. Had a bit of experimentation to do with the GPU fans - I felt that even when running in "silent" PWM-mode from the bios, they were still pretty audible, so ended up trying another set of fans - the AF120 Quiet edition (non-PWM, reduced to 7V). They were also audible, so went back to putting the SP120 in again, but before that, i wanted to try without any of them. I tried running Witcher 3 to test the temps, and that actually showed out to be an even better solution. Obviously there is only the GPU-fans themselves to handle the heat and suck air in, but the 1070 is very economical and doesn't go about 60 degrees - my fan curve keeps the fans under 30% and the temp is stable, so its actually very, very quiet now. I could imagine your 1080 produces more heat and need more cooling, though. My only real problem with this build is the tubes running from the H75 - one of them get a little bend when closing the lid, and since I've been experimenting with it, opening and closing it several times, it ended up being a little bit worn. Ended up twisting the thing counter clockwise twice, to put the strain on the tube that hasn't been bent yet, and hope that I wont have to open then thing many times from now on. I tried doing it as in your picture, but as far as I can see, it also gets a tiny bit bent on yours =/
Hello :) Thank you so much for taking the time to respond, I only now saw that you had made a response - I have never tried aircooling, so this is a completely new world to me, will definitely flip the radiator fan tomorrow to take cool air in instead, see how that affects performance. If you are curious how the build is turning out, i managed to mount the two SP120 in the opposite direction (outwards), creating a huge amount of noise until i finally realised that the coolers on the GPU is blowing fresh air in instead of blowing hot air away - I felt like a complete noob, not having built anything smaller than ATX before this this. I'm completely blown away by the capabilities of this build - its just amazingly small and fast. As you can see, my build is very similar to you: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/TC9t3F . The H75 and FTZ01 is a perfect match, thanks for that tip btw :)
Disregard this. Bought a new H75 to test it and its def. the cooler thats DOA. Which directions are your coolers pointing in the case? Ppl recommend that they all pull air into the case, just find it difficult to see how that would make it cooler.
Nice build :) Was so impressed that i bought the same setup for my new build - the h75 seems to be faulty though, cant seem to get the pump running. Tried connecting it to both fan headers (not at the same time, of course) and setting bios settings to max rpm, but the cpu temp just keeps climbing to 95 degress. Would you mind telling me any signs that the pump is working? like, are both the water tubes warm in use, because mine is just warm in one of them. Cant hear any sound from the pump, but then again, havent tried watercooling before, so not sure if i should. Any comment would be helpful, thanks in advance :)
