Nice build, I agree with your choice of CPU, the 2200g wouldn't bottleneck it I don't think. But the 2600 will last you longer than the 2200g and the extra cores and threads are very nice if you plan on streaming or doing anything that requires more than the generic 4x4.
11/10 for Jerry-Rigging the C7's fan to the Raith. Pretty legit that you where able to do that, looks dope af.
Might I ask why the RAM is seated in the one and two slots (or four and three)? Is it something specific with this Mobo?
I would buy one (using a k55) as my next keyboard if they made it in an RGB form. I don't like the solid red keyboards too much, and if I'm going to have a solid back light its going to be white.
The Z10 is a really nice keyboard. It came out within the past few months as well. Supper cool to see one!
when this is ONE of your rigs.
I'm normally not one for too much RGB, but that looks dope AF with the syncing with the wallpaper. +1
+1 for using Massdrop
SirHalpin is right. The difference between an NVME and a SATA drive, although there, barely. Yea, they do have way different reads and writes, but that's just what the drive can do. Right now, the only real reason is with video files. And unless that's your job, a SATA (2.5/M+B) will do the job just fine.
I wouldn't get the 8700 if I where you. I would much rather buy a 8600k or a 8400 and get your self a better GPU like a 1070 or 1070ti. But, if you've not bough all the parts yet and can wait for a few months, I think that the new GTX 11 series of cards is coming out in aug. But, do what ever you want, spend it how you want to spend it, no one else can make you do anything you don't want!
What a nice build. Don't listen to the people who are saying, you should just sell your CPU and get a new one and that stuff, overclocking isn't that huge of a preformence boost in most games to be 100% honest. I love the look and that thing should run cooooooooooool with that AIO. Great job on your build!
1) Flash a new BIOS, might work out some kinks 2) See if there are more than 1 AXMP functions for your mobo. I've got two on my MSI board, 1 might be 2100 and the other 3000. 3) Check with your mobo's RAM list, if its not on there, you might have run into problems.
On a side note, I do think that that's weird because even with my B350, I was able to push my 1x8 2666mhz to 2800mhz with out any voltage or timing things or boot problems. I would flash a BIOS if I where you, but just as lost as you're.
For the RAM, go into your BIOS and see if it has an auto XMP setting for your ram. You should also flash a new BIOS to the board, if it is outdated. The place that it should be is in your advanced settings, and under overclocking. With those sticks, you should be able to get them up to 3200 with out any voltage or timing stuff, but make sure that you have a program that you can use to test it before you start doing anything if you do chose to overclock. the extra 900mhz that you get from your ram should help your CPU a lot.
Yea, I know that they aren't out yet, but are you dumb? What I was trying to get at was that a 400 series board would be better for that CPU.
I was wondering the same thing, but those all look to be 3.0 x16 or x8 slots, so I don't think it matters that much.
If you're not going to get a new motherboard, I would go wtih a 7400, as renan_rlr said. But if you do, a r5 2600 or i5 8600k or 8400 would be litty
Something like that.
I'm using the Wallpaper Engine from steam. the snow flakes (you might not be able to see them in the photos) are falling. The system also does not eat the much ram :)
I chose the 2200G because my grandparents have expressed their wanting of a new computer soon. I do think I'll end up going with something like an i5 or r5, but it worked out for what I wanted to pay for a CPU and I can build them a system with it as well. Also, It isn't a bottleneck so why does it matter anyways?
It should also be noted that although you can put a Ryzen+ CPU into it, there are still things a X470/B450 board has that would better suit that CPU.
You should have no problems with most games, although ARMA 3 is weird and uses core 0 and 1 pretty much only. I should think it would be fine though.
No, it's just the one thing in your build that you need to make sure is good.
Just make sure that you buy a good PSU from a good source. Also, even if it says ex) 850, it most likely only be able to sustain 770-800 long term.
It depends on what you want to do and on how long you want that PSU to last. I got mine (EVGA G3 Gold+ 750w) for the 10 year warenty. I also got it because depeneding on what you want to overclock, if you want to overclock, some things can draw A LOT of power. Also, I can plug almost anything into that PSU and be fine (not talking about overclocking a 7920XE but most stuff). You should also look at metal level. If all you want is power, by all means get a bronze unit, but If you want to pull like 90%+ out of the wall, then you might want to get a higher metal rating. I wouldn't scimp on it due to if something goes bad, CY@ to the rest of your system, why lose a 700 buck system when you could have payed the extra 40 bucks to ensure that it wouldn't happen. Also, you may want to get a surge protector. I'll end up getting one from my local staples for like 20-40 bucks. Just in case :)
I think you would be better off with getting a new monitor, and a 1070/1170 for the future proof. Just remember that the 1060 6gb has been out for close to 2 years now.
You can't just think about a PSU for the amount it can pull. I have a G3 750 Gold+ PSU in the system I'm building. It's WAY over kill for my build, but it has more power than I'll ever use from it and it'll be better than spending 40 bucks for a 450 Wat PSU, then having to spend 100+ for a really nice one.
A really nice build for the cost! Although, I wouldn't go from a 1050ti to a 1060 6gb. Just think, is the $200-150 that I'll pay for a 1060 6gb (that would be the cost if you where to sell your 1050ti for 100-150) going to be worth the boost in FPS? I would save for a 1170 when the come out over the summer. Other than that I love it!
That's just how it is. You didn't win the silicon lottery (4.1/4.2 <-- almost unheard of w/ Ryzen chips) But you didn't get shat on with a chip that'll only hit 3.8.
You should really flip your psu so you don’t get more dust and carpet in it
Yea, I saw one for around 110 a month ago, nothing to be seen now though.
I personally wish I could get R9 or an RX560 for a good price, yet it doesn't seem that that will be occuring soon
Might I ask what that 3rd SATA cable is running to in the 1st photo, just curios if it's a master drive that you're using to do some test's upon the system before you ship it out.
Boi, I hope that you're playing games at 4K on this rig. I mean, if you had the cash laying around, it's cool that you went for it. I would have personally like to have seen a custom loop in something of this price range, but it's something you can add on latter to. And by the looks of that screen in the side of your mid pic, that's a 2K or 1080p screen. Hopefully you can (If you asked for this and your mom gave it to you then you probably should be able to) Get a nicer screen. If all you wanted to play was stuff like fortinte, you could have ez pz gotten by with a 1050ti or 1060, but some just have more than others.
If you're asking about what parts to get, you should first do your research. The 3gb cards is more than enough for 60fps, 1080p on high to medium. People may say you need a 1070 to play games, when you can get by with a 1050(ti)
Could you even get a GPU in that case? Unless you were to get a LP card.
You could use that. I'll be using this > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zbvx62iv6d4
for my personal overclock. Not the same CPU, but should work the same. The Max Volts is 1.45v (but check) and max temp is 95C for Ryzen chips.
Nice build. Those cables are on point.
Wow... That's one nice build. If R6S crashes on boot, I wouldn't think that It's your CPU, but 4.2 is almost unheard of for Ryzen chips. If you've not, I'd run some tests. Hope you figure out what the problem is! Also, you should get a back-up HD for that Raid. Wouldn't want to loose files you might want in the future.
Yep... a lot of people who have been waiting and were or are going to build Zen build are probably going to get one of the new APUs, myself included as long as Fry's will let me use on of their APU's so I can update my BIOS :3
You will have trouble getting the 10 series cards for now. Rumor has it that Ampere (20 series nVidia cards) Will be dropping on the 12th of April, and boardpartners have stopped making 10 series cards in prep for the 2080/70 cards. (Just rumors)
Nice build, would personally not have gone with the Noctua fans, but that 165hz is fire. You could do better with the cable management, but you always have time to do that later. I would also would pick up a 5.25 to 3.5/2.5 bay converter, would make it look much cleaner and give you better airflow. You can pick up on off of amazon or newegg, and it is what I'll be doing with my personal build.
Nice build. Although I would have gone for a Ryzen 5 1600 or 1400 in that price point for the CPU, but that's just opinion. The next thing I would do is to get rid of those two 160gb drives and replace it with a new 2TB drive. (Which you seem to be getting soon xD). I really do love how you put your extra cables behind the 2 drives as to not take up as much room and air flow. Once you get that 2TB HD, Last thing I would do would get the final two DIMS of ram. I don't personally think you should get a new PSU any time soon, unless you need one, because of how you handle the cables.
Edit: You can also buy a GPU backplate if you want for it to look cleaner for around 30-50 bucks, they can be LED too
Much nice upgrade path, he can put an extra in when he wants. Nicer if he wants to hit the magical 64GB in four slots. It's what I would do and you also save around 20-40 with on one slot. With that 2666 he could ez pz get an OC to 2933 or maybe 3200. Not a bad build TBH, and I like how he took the Cooler Master 120mm Rad with that rebate. Thumbs up from me.
It should make his day. I also like how you have some good components like the PSU, Case, and Storage that he (or you) can move to a newer build in the future if you want. For the cost, a good build.
