Remember that Ryzen supports ECC RAM as well so that's available to you as well, other side note is that you can get a raid controller to put into your extra PCIe slot for even more storage! Nice build!
Depends on the motherboard you have, but yeah I would check beforehand. Would stink to buy on only to have it not work.
Just a heads up if you get a Vega 56 or 64 it may not work due to the platform you are on. Vega cards have in the past had issues with legacy BIOS that don’t support UEFI.
All integrated GPUs use system memory, whether it is Intel or AMD their integrated graphics draw from the system memory (unless you are using a broadwell series iGPU with eDRAM)
Awesome build btw love seeing things with a purpose other than gaming.
Only problem is that the 8700k is no where to be found in stock. Intel likely revealed/launched it before they had built up inventory to get people to wait for it. Genius move on the business side, will probably slow ryzen sales, but also their own kaby lake. We'll have to see how AMD's refreshed ryzen fairs to call a win or loss.
That's rough, sorry to hear. For my chip I just wanted whatever I could get at 1.35v in order to manage thermals and not reduce lifespan
Overclocking can be tricky on X99 especially with broadwell e. I've got my 6850k @4.5 1.35v but I got super lucky
Love seeing an old core 2 quad on here. Awesome build!
Build looks nice, I always like the flow indicators.
Vrm temps are safe until about 120C+ so what you were seeing is probably fine. Nice build!
For the CPU I would try and find a used xeon from the era, you cant overclock anyways so you wouldn't be missing out and you'd get more threads. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Xeon-E3-1240-V2-3-4GHz-8MB-Cache-LGA-1155-CPU-SR0P5/162582914785
Don't get me wrong I love ryzen, if you are mostly playing games though and you must have Ryzen I'd recommend the 1600x. And if you are not doing any kind of work that could benefit form more than 4 cores and just want the absolute best gaming experience regardless of price the 7700k is the way to go.
I think either would get the job done, it comes down to budget and each has its trade offs. Due to its clock speeds the 1700 will perform 5-10% worse than the 7800x in games but outperform it in multithreaded workloads. The 7800x is faster in games but has a higher platform cost, slightly worse multithreading, and is very hot.
If you are also doing high refresh rate gaming this is a great build, if not a ryzen system will do better in productivity workloads. It ultimately comes down to what is more important to you as an eight core ryzen is around the same price as this. do you care about streaming and rendering more (ryzen) or pure frame rate not streaming (7700K 120fps+). If you decide you need ryzen this is my pick. ( I had difficulty finding your monitor perpipherals and GPU on the site as we are from different countries). Whatever you choose I hope your build goes fantastic!
Congrats on the build man! It looks nice and from what I can tell it is a very practical price to performance machine. Have fun gaming and try and get some school work done!
My guess is that they are referring to the fact that each internal USB 2.0 header support two USB 2.0 ports without a hub. But such is I suppose.
nope, and I'm too stingy to buy the NZXT usb 2.0 internal hub thing so no light from my NZXT kraken it is.
Tearing is when the frame rate the GPU outputs does not match the monitors refresh rate, or is not evenly divisible by it, eg a 60Hz monitor wont tear at 60, 120, 180, or 240hz etc. Tearing is only a visual blemish and shouldn't affect averages, I hope you can find out what's going on!
I believe your issue is the DVI cable, I do not believe any of the DVI connections out there (DVI, DVI-D, DVI-I) have enough bandwidth for 144Hz at 1080p. If you have another connection on your monitor and you GPU try that, otherwise it is an unfortunate driver problem. BEST OF LUCK!
EDIT: after some research DVI-D can do 144Hz so make sure that is the one you are using and not DVI-I or DVI
I love seeing the server stuff on here, I feel like that kind of hardware doesnt get as much love as it deserves.
Freaking amazing, I hope you get to make some great stuff on this build! +1
Not as far as I know, I'm just as confused. Some people have told me the thunderbolt header is a USB 2.0 header but I don't think so.
Old builds like this are awesome
Nice build man, no frills I like it gets the job done.
But where, I am using the one in the bottom right of the board but I can't find the other?
I have the same motherboard, do you know if there is a second USB 2.0 internal header?
I love X58 builds! Hope you have fun in VR man
Looks awesome! I think you have the air 240 though and not the air 540 if I am not mistaken as your parts list indicates? Feel free to correct me though.
One of the mounting holes did not line up in the upper left corner looking from the back. I personally also have large hands to getting it into the right spot and holding it there in the small case was also slightly difficult. Make sure to route all cables before you mount it as well because it can interfere. It should be absolutely fine though! Best of luck on your bulid!
Great Build! I did something similar with a Pentium G3258 and a strix 970.
Thanks I appreciate it!
I know lol I need some cable extensions
Hey I've just posted a build with the same motherboard! Although mine is SE version. I used a Xeon X5670, I love the overclockable Xeons.
not good, went to 4.4 and there are no heatsinks on the mosfets. Therefore the power being delivered to the CPU for the overclock is too much for the mosfets and they overheat. Mine started smelling burnt so I went to stock. If you want to oc you need a different board because you will end up burning up your mosfets. My guess is your mosfets got too hot and caused the system to turn off and it's still happening
THIS IS AWESOME, I'd heard tales about this CPU's incredible price to performance really great to see a cool build off it. +1
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/H86r99 just my suggestion
If You had enough money left after the monitor the only thing I can suggest is getting a higher tier GPU such as the 980 or 980ti maybe even a fury, and if all your needs are gaming an i7 would be overkill just like a 980 or 980ti, so my suggestion is if you want to go further with this build is that you buy a cheaper monitor now save the rest of the money then when you have some more you can get a 980/980ti with 1440p monitor because at this point anything more than a 970 is overkill and adding on a higher resolution monitor brings you over budget. You are good where you are. BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT 1080p G-sync is good too and that is here http://www.amazon.com/Acer-XB270H-Abprz-27-inch-Widescreen/dp/B00NUCRBCU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1437888548&sr=8-2&keywords=1080p+gsync
Love the Build especially the case, If I were you with the extra 400 bucks I would get this monitor for around $200 USD http://www.amazon.com/BenQ-Gaming-Monitor-RL2455HM-24-Inch/dp/B007HSKSMI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1437884647&sr=8-1&keywords=1080p+144hz+monitor and with any Money left over treat yourself to some nice peripherals such as a mechanical keyboard and or a nice mouse. Cheers and have fun with Your new rig
