No, the H5 Ultimate fits in snuggly. I'm not sure if it's different on the tempered glass edition, but on my P400, there's maybe about 2mm-3mm of clearance left until it touches the side panel.
hey its me your friend.
jokes aside great build man +1
Ryzen is here
+1 for the build man
Huh..well that's strange. Perhaps I just got a faulty unit then? Regardless, thank you for the answer.
Great build! Just a quick question about the WiFi card. I have the same one and there are times where it disconnects from my network and I would enable airplane mode in Windows 10 and disable it a few seconds later and it would reconnect just fine. Does this happen to you as well? I have a feeling it just may be the card heating up during heavier loads.
Not OP but I can answer question 2. In my build, I used 1 stick of 8GB to leave room to upgrade in the future. My Cryorig H5 Ultimate covers one of the RAM slots so if I had 2 sticks of 4GB I wouldn't be able to add more. I actually added another 8GB of RAM (1 stick, now using 2x8GB sticks) to my system to be able to use Photoshop more efficiently.
Nice build. Reckless prices in Australia huh? Regardless, +1 for the 1st on PCPP with Sky Kaby Lake.
Sorry for the late reply but it doesn't seem like it'll fit. The H5 Ultimate almost comes in contact with the side panel itself.
Well then, I'd like to call this Blackout.
Sacrifices must be made if you want a good looking build.
Also, MSI you guys should really look into an all black ITX motherboard just saying.
Actually yeah, and it's horrible because I have really oily fingers. Would recommend you wear some gloves or something if you plan on getting this case.
Maybe it's because I haven't done this before and not sure how to do cable management, but I found that with the 24pin motherboard connector when bunched up with the Velcro straps proved to be too thick of a bunch and made it pretty hard to put the panel on by myself.
Might be haha. Originally wanted to do a G3258 + 750ti build to solely play RuneScape but then I had an itch and decided to beef it up for the other workloads I was planning on doing.
Looking forward to see the completed build! And yeah I benched it with Heaven and it ran it at Ultra with x8 MSAA at 66fps. Crazy!
Same here. Old laptop couldn't handle RS3 when it came out so I quit for a while and when they announced OSRS I was ecstatic.
Always have been, always will :D
Yeah it's great. Had to drive about 45 minutes to the one in PA. Well worth it in my opinion.
Haha, the 1060 is a bit overkill for my needs if I'm being honest! Just got it since it draws less power and was about the same price.
Those are custom prices and still brings the price to over $900.
Which 1070 will still enable you to keep the price <$900? He only paid $865.51 for the whole thing.
Thanks for the answer. Got a bit worried haha.
Great build. 1 question though. I have this case, and I'm ordering the same exact CPU cooler. How does it fare in the P400? Can you actually close the side panel? I made a mistake while researching and forgot to check for the maximum CPU cooler height (160mm) for the P400.
Philip has the best build here. Great PSU, SSD, GPU, and CPU. I don't really mind the RAM as it'll probably get covered up by the CPU Cooler anyway. Great list.
What a nicely done description and a top of the line computer you've built. I'm also a fan of OS X and I really appreciate what you've done here :D
Looks like, from the partlist, he'll use it for gaming and some production as well.
Yeah I don't absolutely need it at this point in time, but I plan to heavily upgrade this build once I get a job and have more disposable income. It's just there for when I'm ready to upgrade :) Thanks for the help.
Recommend this card if you want to stick with your color scheme. :)
Fair enough, I've done some research and I've replaced the two parts. Would this be better? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/cFFWnQ
I'm trying to keep the budget within $500-$550 USD.
Holy **** $239 for a 500GB SSD. Boy have things changed...
Anyway, +1 for a great build. This would've been my dream machine back in '11.
That case is so nice. Reminds me of an old Dell I used to have as a kid. Anyway, great selection of parts, but I'm curious as to why you chose the Titan Black? First time I've seen a build with it. How well does it perform?
Fair point, and yeah, I too have seen some pretty ridiculous stuff here on PCPP :p.
True, but someone who isn't as tech savvy as the people here on PCPP, installing a few programs like Chrome, Skype, and Google Drive can devour RAM usage. Weeks later they show up to Geek Squad at Best Buy asking why they're computer slowed down.
Sure 2GB is best for basic web browsing if that all someone plans to do with the computer, but like you said it can easily get eaten up by background processes.
Not saying it can't run now, just saying.
Not saying it can't run now, just saying.
With another 2GB stick I'm sure it would run just fine. Not saying it can't run now, just saying.
Congrats on featured. I saw this earlier and I knew it was inevitable. +1 for those sexy tubes
No I meant slack as in its slanted xD
I'd take time to clean out the case for an hour or two. A bunch of dust like that can affect cooling performance.
GPU slack :((
Anyway, nice part list and it should definitely be able to handle what you plan on doing . +1
Seems like you posted this without finishing it....?
Yeah but I might as well since it's only about $10-$20 USD more than a 750Ti and delivers better performance.
Yeah, forgot to mention that I only plan on playing RuneScape and watch YouTube on this build. Nothing too intensive. But thanks for the answer, it seems like the 950 will work fine if your 960 does too. Thanks :)
I'm guessing you're talking about the OS X-like dock at the bottom. That would be StarDock.
Hey man, great build. Really interesting selection of parts. +1 Also, I'm curious as to how your 960 performs with the G3258. I've been thinking about a Pentium build myself, but with a 950. Here's the list. I'm only using watercooling since ASRock Z170 motherboards lets you change the base clock on locked CPUs and I plan on doing so to get more performance out of the G4400. Anyways, my question, is your 960 being bottlenecked? I'm going to be using a 950 but I want to be sure, if not I'll just switch to a 750 Ti.
Good build. Don't worry about not overclocking, You wouldn't get much of an overclock using just the 212 EVO. Great choice of parts regardless. +1
You could always force the x16 to a different slot.
Great job on the research and hunting for those deals. Great build :) +1
(insert mother of god meme here) this...is...gorgeous...
Nice build, and great choice of the parts for what you had in mind. +1
