ExoticX's Completed Build: My Sub $1000 PC (Ryzen 7 1700/GTX 980)

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 14 days ago

That's an awesome card! Might look at them.

haynosekai's Completed Build: Obsidian

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 28 days ago

I can really see this cooler going perfectly with Corsair Dominator Platinum, Just a thought though.

fastalchemy0516's Completed Build: Stage 1 - Pepper-PC

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 29 days ago

I actually somewhat like it without the cable combs. While cable combs are great and all, they can limit how you can bend your braided cables. It's up to you, though- your build, not mine.

Deprivasion's Completed Build: i7 8700k/ 1070ti

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 5 points 1 month ago

Not even a little bit.

ikertristan's Completed Build: Majora's D (The D is for Desktop)

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

The name got me. +1

Wilburbruh's Completed Build: The Final Form

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 4 points 1 month ago

In the world of PC building, there is no final form.

Anybody else at a loss for words?

stupidasian94's Completed Build: Tiny Watercooled PC

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 3 points 1 month ago

This is absolutely unbelievable. +1 for the Bykski block on the card too.

Keith_Horton's Completed Build: FuryBox - Mobile PC Perfection

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Considering that you can currently get a Titan X for around 350 on ebay, I think it's safe to say that he bought that card a while ago.

vanMaan's Completed Build: SG13 Mini ITX with RTX

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

H170 only supports up to 2133, therefore purchasing 2400 or 2666 would be useless.

Mozart_Marshall's Completed Build: EVGA 1080 Ti SLI - Delidded 8700k (der8auer) - 5.4GHz - 1st build.

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 3 points 1 month ago

SLI is rarely ever worth it anymore, usually because of scaling issues in modern games. As a matter of fact, more times than not the second card is just going to be sitting in your second slot and not doing anything (due to no SLI support.) I only really recommend SLI if you manage to find a steal on ebay for two 1080s, presumably for 250 each.

Delidding on the other hand, is really only something you should do if you plan on overclocking, or running an ITX rig where temps are going to be an issue. It's pretty much up to personal preference, but if you are just a regular consumer you shouldn't need to spend the 50 dollars on a delid tool.

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

It's not all about the IPC though, because it is 100% true that some 8th gen chips perform way better than others- in terms of overclocking performance and temps regardless of being delidded. Those that do perform significantly better are sometimes binned during testing and are re-sold as factory overclocked chips (8086k)

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 3 points 1 month ago

This sorta depends.

The scaling quality heavily depends on the specific game/workload you're using, and the performance of the second card really varies. For example, one 1080ti will give you 100 FPS in one game, but the second 1080ti will provide you with an additional 50 frames. This basically means that the second 1080ti is giving you only an additional ~50% performance in some games. This is basically how scaling applies on a consumer level. Some older Radeon HD graphics cards, like the HD 7770s, actually scale really well. On my crossfire rig I am achieving about ~80% scaling returns from my second card (one card gives me about 60 frames, while the second one almost doubles it to 100 frames). This really just goes to show how over time the dual-gpu setup is really losing it's value.

squishybuttqq's Completed Build: Dusty ; Second Build [what should i upgrade]

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

upgrade budget of 200 - 250 max.

I don't think a 6700k will work.

whirledpeas's Completed Build: No RGB

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Or you know, replace the BQ! fan from the cooler because it won't match the rest of your build. I hate seeing criticism like this that isn't constructive in any way, it just creates a negative environment on the site.

samusfan117's Completed Build: PC-01

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

That's almost surprising considering that the FX-6300 is really just a tri-core with some tacked on "cores"

Who knows, I guess Apex is just more GPU based.

stillbinary's Completed Build: Louqe Ghost S1 build1

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

The tophat is pretty expensive for what it provides. Whatever works I guess.

Nintendao's Completed Build: $600AUD 1440P gaming rig

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

Except it can. Performance at any resolution is heavily dependent on what settings you use and at what framerates you aim to achieve. The R9 Fury is about ~10% faster than the RX 580 at full boost. That puts it about on-par with the GTX 980 which is a proven 1440p capable card.

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 3 points 2 months ago

Are you seriously running 2 gigs of ram?

HunterGames's Completed Build: GreenBlade & Setup

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

My guess is that one of the monitors is pushed by an Xbox 360.

HunterGames's Completed Build: GreenBlade & Setup

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

He tried at least.

gearshift_'s Completed Build: white and gold water cooled build

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

I think it's safe to say that this takes a crap on Jay's "Gold Digger" build. This thing crushes it and it doesn't have two RTX Titans.

Strayborne's Completed Build: EVGA-centric Moderate Gaming Build

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Actually looks great, love the theme. Few recommendations though;

-Try fitting the 120mm radiator to the back of the case. There are a few reasons for this, but the main one is temps

-Try to route the 24-pin (motherboard) connector behind the cable-management panel to clean things up a bit (http://prntscr.com/minj0j) or even try some cheap cable extensions

-Just for fun, maybe try looking at some EVGA brand ram? ;)

+1 though, upvoted for sure.

MyBigRustyNuts's Completed Build: A PC with no name

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

This might be the best thing i've ever seen.

hisperati's Completed Build: Zen Minimal Build

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

Such a great build ridden with "Bottleneck" comments. Great job, I have the same exact GTX 1080.

no, thank you !

mr.mounts's Completed Build: Ash

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 3 points 2 months ago

Better value.

neuromask's Completed Build: White Balance

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Not to mention that it is 750W pushing two 1080tis

Edit: 1080tis don't have an SLI bridge.

Forum Topic "I7 6800k vs 6700k"

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 5 points 3 months ago

Technically the 6800k is "better" but the motherboard (2011-v3) will cost you much more than one for a 6700k (LGA 1151)

Andrew.lewis's Completed Build: Big White (my first computer)

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

No, that is not mounted correctly.

Lightning0724's Completed Build: Pretty Cheap Build with high FPS (100-180)

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

My guess is that he probably already had the 2200g before he had the RX 580. Once again, the 2200g is still a stupid capable chip for less than 100 dollars.

kylertime's Completed Build: NZXT Elite Build with water cooler, full razer rgb setup

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

I would also like to note the intense GPU sag and RGB strip that is literally just highlighting the bad cable management.

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Oh boy

zonjax's Completed Build: Cyberjunk 2020

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Read up on the error critical_process_died, seems that you may need bios/driver updates. Other people had the same BSOD when their drivers were corrupted. I also second Samsy, maybe those M.2s should have heatsinks on them. My M.2s operate around 45 during normal use. Maybe the higher capacity on yours are the cause?

zonjax's Completed Build: Cyberjunk 2020

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Great name, and to be fair this probably will be junk in 2020... You know, Moore's Law?

Just kidding, this should hold up for a long time. Nice work! As a fellow SG13 owner, I give this one a +1

Jonm0bius's Completed Build: OSMI upgrade

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Oh wow, that case is really cool

jamesthebard's Completed Build: Road Less Travelled

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 3 points 3 months ago

Wait, how did I miss this? There is no way that i'm actually looking at a 2990wx, VEGA Frontier custom loop! Love the build, and the PCI-E M.2 card. What do you use this for exactly? And how are your temps?

michaelpeters's Completed Build: Budget RGB Ryzen 3 Build

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 4 points 3 months ago

I'm getting pretty tired of explaining this. The 2200g, when overclocked, is as fast as an i5-7500. An i5-7500 can easily support a GTX 1080, in fact many people do pair the two.

Simon_Riley's Completed Build: Chromax Yellow Meshify C

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 5 points 3 months ago

You need to realize that not everybody has the ability to customize a machine or afford a 500 dollar custom loop. Anyone can recreate this build, and should provide good inspiration for anyone who likes it.

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 3 points 3 months ago

Yes.

You literally ripped this machine from this website. That person probably spent tons of time building that machine just for you to take his credit. Smh..

CrossFarm's Completed Build: The First Time PC Builder The Mismatch PC?

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

If I were you I wouldn't really be too worried about your bottleneck. In a couple of months, AMD is projected to release a GTX 1080 performance card for a really affordable price ($250 to $350 hopefully) and you can just upgrade to that. If you can't for whatever reason, then your RX 580 should do justice for a while.

The build looks great, especially for a first one. +1

This build is so charming. It is perfectly reminiscent of those old 2012 AMD builds that I used to dream about owning. +1

I've seen this same build while looking at your cable combs. I love this build!! I strive to have a backside as pretty as this ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

FabianX's Completed Build: ITX Power LGA 2066

ThriftStoreRaider 9 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Oh wow, I didn't notice that the reservoir was mounted on the outside, on the radiator!?? This is so cool, is it something that Phobya does exclusively? Finally, If you like Raijintek you could try building a machine in this case... it would be a cool challenge I would imagine
