I like the build, (effective and good price to performance) and the matching color scheme to boot. Focus on noise>RGB is a +1 from me
funny thats actually what i did on mine
your right, and with some more researching it seems clear the board is not T topology, (not that it seems to matter much withe ryzen 2 having a 1900Mhz fclk limit) that said I certainly do lose some overclocking potential as the memory controller gets saturated, but were not going above 3800 on Ryzen anyway. But yea probably in future builds unless things drastically change will go the 2 dim rout
honestly I wanted to fill 4 dimms since I paid for 4 dimms of bandwidth. but in honestly it was for durability. If for any reason a stick fails then Im down 25% capacity rather than 50%. But really it would only make sence to get 4 sticks over 2 if the mobo dim layout is in parallel and not series. I dont know of a way to tell what it is.
Really clean build are those the LTT limited edition noctuas? I really like the purple/orange/black combo
lol a 4k thousand dollar monitor and your powering it with this?...
It looks nice but not a great performance envelope for the price
why do you have 2 kits of ram listed on the parts list? Im pretty sure if you tried to fill all 4 dims with those 2 kits it wouldn't post.
I can tell from the thoughtful choices in this build that you've watched the Gamers nexus review on this case. Its one of my favor cases, although I did choose its only real competitor the silver stone Raven for my case so haahah. only thing I would consider changing out is the 1tb HDD. I feel like the hassle of the 3 1/4in bays are only worth the time weight and noise if your putting 3Tb or more per drive. otherwise just spend the $20 more and go solid state. your wait times for windows search will thank you.
So are you gonna overclock since you have the thermal headroom? I would be very interested to see your results
Very nice build. And well spent for the performance that matters. So I might as well get down to talking about looks and presentation. I am actually really digging that unique thermatake case. Has a nice blend of understated design with some unique forms for visual interest. Reminds me of like premium office equipment if that makes any sense... Ahem anyhow I would like to see an image of the case interior so I can ridicule cable management ;) . I also think if you wanted to glam it up a little bit without looking tacky I would add a single ARGB strip to the inner top panel and sync it with the front lights. (that purple and white is a nice combo) the light would do a nice job bouncing off the mobo/components and displaying the hardware inside without being distracting by beaming light through the tinted panel directly. Just an idea as those glowing ram sticks seem a bit lonely in dark cave lol. for upgrades Ide say just the monitor, probably a good 2k high refresh rate one would be perfect.
very nice! tastefully put together with great fit and finish
For a few reasons.
1. Expand ability, like If in 4 years I want to upgrade to a 16 core it should have plenty of Oomph to do the job
2. Dependability, Having a postcode and debug leds are huge and this was the cheapest board to carry it. actually helped me when I couldn't post the computer only to find it was giving GPU errors because the cable to the monitor was not plugged in. generally these data points can be really helpful for "less experienced builders" to trouble shoot and find out whats causing the problems
Also the high end mobo's generally get much better support in terms of updates for bios and troubleshooting/warrenty
3. for the small cramped interior of the case I knew I wouldn't have room for the HDD Bay so having dual m.2 slots meant I could install 4TB easy in the system without cabling or filling up any space
And maybe its just my ethos to pc building where I see the MOBO as the nervous system a vital component that controls the rest of the hardware, that distributes and directs the signals and that basically dictates how your going to overclock and what kind of dependability you want down the line
thanks m8 I was really happy with the ram I was inspired by buildzoid over at actually hardcore overclocking specifically this video demonstration of how to overclock that specific kind of ram https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhp8iwHJxyI&list=PLvdr5HqjrJ-IHocWitBej28jS6mhbt1d-&index=165&t=2340s
great job on the first build! now you just need a monitor to justify all that powa!
This is a nice build and some really nice scores wow! I really like how you commented on each component of the setup! you really did a great job of optimizing the price to performance. The meshify is one of my top 5 favorite cases. by tomorrow Ill have my build up on site, for around the same price/performance. Ill endeavor to post all the comparable data, thank you for the inspiration!
whats your graphics card? its not listed
This is my 2end build ever, my last was 2013 I will add more details and photos once the parts arrive and are assembled. The one area I am not sure about is the ram but I hope to overclock it by 400Mhz while keeping timings about the same. (was inspired by builzoid there)
