The Pro has the advantage of being able to write at sustained, higher speeds though - hence why I went for it here

I'm glad you like it!

The SSD is mounted underneath the PSU shroud, right on the floor of the case. I did a terrible paint job on it for a previous build so did not want it on show ;)

Hi Ori - i'm afraid I couldn't tell you. I would guess it should work but not for long , though i don't know for sure!

That Rosewill one will be better - you don't wanna skimp on a cheaper power supply (although there's nothing necessarily wrong with the EVGA bronze model). a better quality unit will just be more efficient and have a longer life-span due to higher-quality capacitors etc.

for your needs the 6850K will be great, Premiere can utilise the extra cores :)

That will do the job nicely :) you could think about a higher-class PSU just for greater efficiency and durability but what you have selected is a good build

One perk of living in the UK is these streams are 8PM for us!

Love the livestreams though, wished you did more!

Lovely build! Did that GPU come with the backplate or did you get an aftermarket one?

Definitely for video rendering and encoding. The extra cores and threads will help a lot :)

no, they're separate. I got mine from E22, a UK company, but there will be some on newegg probably :)

They have a label either side so you can choose if you have your PSU fan facing down or up. Fan is facing down in this instance :)

I didn't, already had the 4690k from my previous build and it's just fine! :) the extensions I got are Bitfenix alchemy and they were quite cheap, £30 for them all including two extra pcie cables. Not sure about US pricing though

I know - I'm not planning on upgrading to Kaby Lake. I was already on the z97 platform when I built the original PC a year ago, and I dropped the 4690k in that pc about 6 months ago - so I just carried it over to this build :)

Well, eventually I want to go for a full custom loop so I might go for the Phanteks Evolv Glass edition - it has more radiator space. If I wasn't planning a custom loop though, the Elite looks really good.

That's under 100% Prime 95 load, when I'm gaming it doesn't top 44C

I installed it fan facing down, as the s340 has a mesh intake area for PSUs

I'd not noticed actually! I think they just need re-seatimg. I hope, anyway

I like them a lot. The LEDs are great - positioned in the center rather than the edges helps give more strength I think. Whether or not the magnetic bearing actually helps is another thing, but I run them at 25% speed and they are whisper quiet. 60cm PWM cables is also very handy. I had AFs in before and I can't say I've noticed any difference in temps/noise but I got them primarily for the visuals.

I had thought about it - my colleague is giving me his old X99 motherboard though, so I think I'll go X99, see how Skylake-X looks, and if it is a big enough improvement, I'll sell my hardware and pay the difference

Hi,

not all PSUs do that, but it is a good feature. It does not affect performance at all. basically all it means is the fan only turns on when the PSU needs the active cooling (i.e. under load.) so when you're just surfing the web, the fan will turn off = quieter PC.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What's so bad about this build?"

Nothing's bad about it really, it's a well balanced budget system. Depending on the editing the i5 and relatively little RAM may slow you down a bit but it will be alright

It would likely be fine as they are not demanding games. If you had to, you could get a Pentium if you're tight for a cash, but the i3 is a better performer thanks to its extra threads

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First build, I need some opinion, please :)"

I would go for a beefier cooler and a more reliable/efficient PSU. The cooler is fine for stock clocks, but no point going Z170 if you're not overclocking. The 212 can handle a modest overclock, but a CLC such as the Kraken/Arctic Liquid Freezer would do a better job and look cleaner in my opinion.

As for the PSU, you don't wanna skimp out on a cheaper unit. that one is fine but only up to a certain point. something like Corsair's RM650x or similar would be a smarter move

What games do you play? The only obvious way to make that any cheaper than it already is to change the CPU/GPU, so it depends on your usage

Hi,

I didn't have to remove it, you could do push/pull with the h80i intaking. I just chose not to to give more space for cable routing :)

the way I configured it, the front fan is actually outside of the front panel, just under the front fascia.

thanks - I think Ryan mentioned in the Twitch stream there would be pictures of the finished build with the side-panel. The bonus vid is what I was after though :)
