marvin is good boye
This isn't just a PC anymore, this is a work of art it looks fantastic, hope to see you on featured!
Apologies for such a late reply, the motherboard has 4 fan headers that also support water pumps. I've been very satisfied with the build quality, but the BIOS is kinda **** and difficult to navigate. Overall, the board is a very nice and it feels top-of-the-line and I highly recommend it.
Partly its overclockable, although you won't get huge performance gains on Zen 2, its still nice to have the headroom. But mostly I like how it looks in my case, and its very quiet.
If you don't like how the membrane kb feels, get a mechanical keyboard. I have never used the g213 keyboard but I have felt quite a few high quality membrane keyboard feel very nice, but personally I prefer mechanical keyboards over membrane. If you're in the market for a mechanical one, go Ducky, Corsair, Logitech, and the ones @Marco_The_Noob mentioned. Some keyboards can get a bit pricey, but here's a few I recommend.
$95 - Vortexgear Cypher 65% with Cherry Browns
$70 - Logitech G610 Orion Red Backlit with Cherry Reds
$143 - Vortexgear Pok3r 60% with Cherry Silver
Not brown at all as far as I can see. If it is, its very muted and not noticeable at all.
Sorry its a bit late, but there is no brown noticeable at all.
That was the plan lmao, but didn't have the budget but so far running stress tests my CPU caps at 75C with plenty of overhead for overclocking if I want to, which I do plan on doing when I can find a proper Zen 2 OC'ing guide.
I don't believe there is RGB on this mobo, hope it helps! If you have the budget, I believe the 200 dollar variant from the same manufacturer has RGB (the AORUS one from gigabyte).
So far it works like a charm, no issues and plenty of fan headers, etc.
Haven't overclocked, but I'm sure the mobo can handle an aggressive oc easily, the cooling on the VRMs looks very beefy and it all feels very premium!
It depends, do you have a membrane keyboard or a cheap Chinese mechanical keyboard? If so then I'd say to get a higher quality keyboard, not necessarily the K70 even though it is a good product, you should look out for anything else that interests you and keep an open mind.
Corsair Vengeance K70 I believe, and the mouse is a Logitech g502
A bit late, but a good scroll wheel that I love is on the Logitech G502, they have an "infinite" scroll technology that allows you to hit a button and it allows you to scroll much faster, you should check it out.
Regarding your upgrade plan, the i9-9900k is not worth it if your still into gaming. I suggest an i7-9700k instead since its cheaper, therefore better for your use case (and both the processors will stay relevant for gaming for a good while, at least 4, 5 years or more). I'd also suggest an aftermarket cooler such as the Hyper 212 EVO if you dont plan to OC, but if you plan to OC get a beefy Noctua cooler or an AIO. Nice looking PC build anyways that I'm sure performs like a beast.
ayy I have the same chair lul. anyways dope build
Might be a bit hard to read, but the video tests single-channel and dual-channel ram with ryzen, and the dual-channel runs significantly faster.
good ****, looks clean but the only problem is that single stick of ram, you should really go for 2 2x4 to run in dual-channel for optimal performance.
Clean AF, when the black/red color scheme is pulled off correctly it looks super nice. +1
very much powerful, whats the fps like in minesweeper?
Currently if your game for it the used market has many amazing deals so I would suggest picking up a GTX 1070 for around $200 on eBay when you get the chance.
note: when buying parts look at gtx 1070 ti's as well.
Nice what a beast build, love the aesthetics! What are you gonna use this beast for?
Yeah, btw I recommend any EVGA/Silverstone PSU's I've heard they're really good quality. Also, if you plan on doing a pretty heavy overclock I'd suggest a 650 - 750w PSU 80+ gold or higher.
Nice build, but you're gonna need more storage, 480 gigs of an SSD isn't going to cut it if your planning on downloading a bunch of games. You should go with a 1 - 2 TB HDD, and also imho I would have gone with a bigger PSU for your planned upgrade to a 2070. That PSU is going to give you no headroom to overclock with, so I'd suggest staying at stock clock speeds so you don't destroy your build. Other than that it seems good to me.
What a crazy build +1!
Holy **** this is insanely balls-to-the-wall, what do you plan doing on this beast?
Nice, looks cool my dude +1
Damn that's a crazy machine, your pictures demonstrates the pinnacle of PC Enthusiast building, and it makes for the perfect PC ****.
Looking to build a PC with the exact components and your description was very helpful for a beginner + 1
More pics pls, anyways nice budget build +1
Cool, nice photography and something original!
For streaming, I'd totally go with any Ryzen 7 processor vs. any intel processor because of the core count, and thread count. Other than that, nice build!
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
cool stuff, +1
holy **** that's a killer build for a 10 year old. +1
damn thats tiny, +1
Late comment, but imo you got under budget, you should have put that money towards a nice AIO, but still very nice build.
Nice, love the custom paint job, looks super clean and very good cable management. +1
ah lmfao I didn't think you were an *** or anything, i genuinely wasn't thinking when I wrote my comment lmfao.
there's the noctua fans btw that are around 15 bucks. @Frystorm, but I'm not too sure how well they're going to perform vs. your 22 dollar ones, but they're pretty good performers on my rad with noise and cooling.
yeah i believe so, i wasnt thinking about that when I wrote my comment. you can find gray/black noctua fans on amazon for like 15 bucks a pop.
nice build, would love to see more pictures of it though. but from what I can see its a super clean build +1
lol i love those noctua fans, but I'd go with water cooling personally, it leaves everything looking much cleaner and quieter. you could probably get a evga clc 120 for the price of that noctua cooler.
Nice, I wouldn't call that so modest because of the 1080 lmao, but its a super clean and nice build nonetheless. +1
what a clean build, I hope my cable management is that good for my first build. btw how did you get a 1080 so cheap! anyways love the build +1
I love DIY PC cases, I built in one in my for my friends budget pc and they're not too bad to work in and look great for 30 - 50 bucks.
eh the noctua fans dont look the best, but they are some of the best fans you can buy. if you want to ever swap them you should go with corsair since you can get corsair fans in black.
Nice case but you should go with a Hyper 212 Evo instead of that stock cooler. Either way your not going to overclock with either but that stock cooler is gonna have the CPU run hot af.
2 months late and I have to agree on your comments about pineapple on pizza.
