Thanks! I had an Evga Z170 planned for it but it came with only one working dimm slot. Found a good used deal on an Msi Z270 carbon board for $85 shipped
Fair warning, I've used three Corsair psu's all within the Builder's series and they've all failed. All had fan problems, two of which got quite hot to the point of smoke and then never powered back up. Warranty services aren't very good from Corsair and only continued using because of the cheap cost and the thought that they couldn't all be bad (LOL)... All systems were well with the wattage as well, good luck to the builder!
Overwatch runs completely maxed on 1080p getting full 120+ fps. I have my frames capped across all games but can uncap them to get a more accurate answer.
I like the build and the overall setup. Usually my ocd needs a clean looking space but I like the personal and "full" atmosphere. About how loud is the pc when gaming at full load? And to the comment above, I feel the same way with my B150 mobo, it works but it's holding back the rest of my components.
Awesome story and build, can definitely relate with saving for something awesome and having it go elsewhere (seems to happen with every tax return going to fix my car). Custom painting looks good too +1
Usually not a big fan of red and black but I really like it.
+1 on the Deepcool Captain cooler!
Yep! Actually have moved things around quite a bit to find the best temps and airflow. Looks a bit cleaner now in my opinion as well. The H55 is mounted directly to the bottom intake/outtake of the case since the fluid tubes just aren't that long to comfortably mount it on the front panel under the other 120 AIO. What I've noticed as well is with having it mounted below the gpu, it's getting cool air from underneath and blowing it directly into the Kraken bracket's vrm fan. I've also noticed slightly lower temps after this, guessing there's a smoother bend in the tubing than before creating more flow. Let me know if you need any help or suggestions!
Battlegrounds, Arma 3, Rocket League, BF1, Forza and GTA to be specific.
Thanks for the insight. I've seen a few other nano builds out there using the G10 system so I think I'm going to as well. :)
Only because I found the 6600k cheaper than any non k i5 at the time. Plus gives me a reason when I have more money to change to a z170 board
Hey man, do you have any photos before the liquid cooler was installed? Wanting to see if I can work with the same issue myself. Thanks in advance!
Like I said in the description, a lot of parts were bought used, the cpu was bought for $140 and the motherboard at $65 making it cheaper considering the cost of the Ryzen boards. Definitely a chip I'd like to try someday since I had great luck with my older AMD products but this was just a cheaper solution that would outperform my old system. :)
Pics are up!
I did not, honestly just took a shot and the guy was real professional. Haven't had any issues with it.
Haha, thanks man
Thank you :D
For mainstream games like League and CSGO you'll be max settings very easily with huge frame rates. For heavier titles, you might have to dial back a few settings but generally most games will fall in the high settings area getting a solid 60 fps. I should add, these results were found without any overclocking to the cpu yet.
Haven't tried BO3 but BF4 runs great with a mix of high/ultra settings always at about 55-60 fps, occasionally dipping during fire but never below 30 and that's only for a brief moment.
I haven't but I'll be transferring it over from my laptop tonight and will let you know!
