I can confirm Samsung 950 does work with x58 motherboard. Not sure about all of the x58 boards, but I have a Gigabyte x58 ud3r and the 950 SSD is my current OS drive.
I also have a X58 motherboard that I purchased around 2010. I purchased a prebuild gaming pc with i7 920 along with gtx 260. I have been using this PC till mid 2018 until I heard about xeon 5670. It is a 6 core cpu mainly used on servers back than. It cost me $20 for the cpu and I just replaced the i7 920 with the xeon 5670 overclocked to 4.1 stable and it made a whole world of difference. It was like night and day the difference it made. Feel free to check out my ol' x58 PC still rockin in 2019!!
I have the same Asus Tuf motherboard and experiencing the same symptom. Upon searching online, I believe it is normal and has to do with memory training typically on cold boots.
That's an amazing looking PC. One question though, what's up with the mouse pad?
This is the Coolermaster GPU Verticle mount kit.
Thank you so much. Work hard, and play even harder!!
Very clean build +1
Looks good, except you should kick out all the dust bunnies living rent free in your PC.
Nice build +1. Our systems are almost identical. Check mine out.
I'm really digging the reflective side panel. Did the case come like that or is it a mirror tint? +1 to a clean build.
Nice build +1. Looks just like mine.
Woah, that GPU sag!! I got couple of solutions for that. I have 2 builds listed here in pcparts. Click on my name and check out how I handled the GPU sag with my build. +1 Clean build still.
+1 for a clean build.
Thank you, its a little reward to myself for all the extra shifts I picked up at work throughout the years.
It should work with majority of cases as long as there are 7 slots available. I have it installed in a Lian Li 011 Dynamic Case.
I have an old rig with i7 920 with a GTX 970 that I have been using for the last 10 years or so. I have been playing all the new games as they come out in 1080p with medium to high settings at 60+ fps. Battlefield V, Resident Evil 2, Need for Speed Payback all play 60+ fps. However Evil Within 2 seems to struggle at around 40fps (CPU bottleneck). But generally speaking the i7 920 has been keeping up and I haven't really noticed a reason to upgrade. But eventually I did build another PC because it was still 10 years old after all. And I just wanted to get out of the 1080p era and move up to 1440p, which is a huge upgrade to me. Anyways enough with the ramble. Awesome build +1. Check out my builds, I have the old i7 920 refreshed in a new case and also I have the new build posted. Thank you for sharing your build.
+1 for a all white build!! One suggestion though, how about getting a Coolermaster vertical GPU mounting kit? The graphics card you have looks really nice and would be even better if you can show the front. Just my 2 cents. Check out my build.
Im really digging the GPU with the vertical mount. Excellent choice. +1
Clean build +1.
Please clean out the heat sink on the poor cpu. Then I promise I will give a +1 when I come back!!
Love this old build +1!!
Nice build +1. Except the only thing I would have done differently is used a Coolermaster GPU verticle mount instead. Coolermaster model tends to sit the GPU farther back towards the motherboard so that way it has enough clearance between the side panel and the GPU fan intake. Much better air flow IMHO. Check out my set up.
Nice budget build and great selection on parts. +1
That's great news. Than I know my Dyson can run it no problem.
I love the small factor. +1
You do have a valid point there. I honestly didn't think there was much difference between 144hz and 240hz. But now I understand the reason behind your decision with the parts. Now I'm interested in seeing how much difference there is between the 2. Fantastic build +1.
That build looks like it is more than capable of playing 1440p. Why 1080p with very high spec PC? Not that there is a problem with the monitor, but just saying it is capable of higher resolution. I just finished a new build with i7 9700k RTX 2070 and finally moved to 1440p from 1080p and the difference in gaming is night and day. That is the first thing I would switch out. But other than that it looks like a beast!! +1
Actually Im playing Battlefield V 1080p mid to high settings along with Resident Evil 2. But it struggles with Evil Within 2 averaging 40fps. I take it CPU intense game. Yes it is an older processor but the 920 still is capable. I originally intended to sell it but seeing how good it runs, I decided to keep it around. Now I would certainly not purchase this processor now considering the age. But since I have it, it's still sticking around. My new replacement build is also on this site. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/jsFtt6
Go to Ebay and type "Built not bought sticker" and there are bunch of these stickers for sale. I;ve seen them on cars but first time I seen it on a PC. I like it.
Nice build. Only thing I would have done different is add some braided cable extensions for 24 pin and GPU 6 pin. It would clean up the cluttered cable look. Just my 2 cents. +1
I would replace Intel i5 9600k with a i7 9700k. For about $50 more that i7 will have that little extra future proof. Be quiet is a very good cooler. I would also replace the RTX 2060 with a RTX 2070 just because the 2060 you selected on the part list is $469.99. $30 more and you can get the 2070!! Very nice NZXT case and along with the power supply. Other than that it looks like a beast as soon as it gets all put together. Just my 2 cents...
Very clean looking build! I like
so fresh and so clean clean =).....
That is something that has crossed my mind in the near future.
Very clean looking build... +1
Love the build. I just recently finished my build with the same Lian Li case. It is one of the most attractive looking case out there atm.
