600whp is no joke man! nice work
is that the z06 or the zr1?
Ladies and gentlemen, the defining build for the saying "Money cant buy brains". All that cash and you have got ketchup and mustard spewing everywhere, and dont you dare tell me its because you dont care about aesthetics, cuz you have a freaking rgb power supply.
technically yes, but I recommend against it. YOu can get b350 or even some x370 for just about the same price and with much more features
cries in fx6300
I did not mean any offense, my apologies. And if he already had these parts, adding a 400-600$ gpu will not do all that much to it, as the 990x, while capable, is not enough to utilize these cards
I myself was planning on doing a build like this but with dual resevoirs, one in front and one up top
Awesome build! the cougar conquer is an amazing showpiece
plus, the 990x will bottleneck a 350$ plus gpu
as clean as the build looks, dude your part choices are wack. A ryzen 7 2700 is so much better than anything x58, and a vega gpu is priced wayyyyy too high for the performance it offers. I would say team red for the cpu and team green for a high end gpu, but team red if you are looking at sub 350$ GPUS
i would assume if you owned a 1800$ cpu or the 2970wx you would not blink at the cost of 64 gigs of ram.
another option for amd would be to continue with am4 but release another socket alongside it with support for ddr5 and pcie4
Threadripper lacked octa channel mem support for no reason other than that amd did not want to cannibalize their epyc lineup. and you can have both increased clocks and lower power draw, but just not insanely so if you go with both
Pardon me if i am wrong, but wouldnt it be possible to use the socket AM4 and older ryzen with a bios update and make it compatible with pcie4 and ddr5? i am not too familiar in this realm of hardware however, and am probably misunderstanding this. i personally do not think amd will care at all about the limitations of early motherboards, as with their launch of the 2990wx, they demonstrated they are willing to push out chips that exceed the capability of existing motherboards to fully utilize them. furthermore, i do not think zen 2 will draw too much more power, if any, than ryzen 2, as 7nm is bound to offer better power efficiency, and zen 2, being a completely new architecture, will also offer clock speed improvement for less power.
i meant that intel might be down in the cpu market right now, but i am almost certain that they will eventually, be it 2020 or 250 they will come back with something. I would hopee to see a 10 core from amd, but i agree that this is not especially likely
thats a pretty early report that isnt that well substantiated
for all the announced cards, turing has a worse price to performance than pascal, and this is the first time in history that this is the case
I feel you :( my rx 4708gb is still going strong
the cards are nice, the prices are a joke
I see. I was planning on picking up the 2990wx myself, but wanted something not EATX, and was worried about overclocking headroom.
Have you run into any issues OCing the 2990wx on this MITX board? great build BTW!
Did not expect to see optimum tech on PCPP
I was reffering to the gpu bracket. The a20 takes low profile cards, but also needs a low profile bracket
In HardwareUnboxed inwin chopin build, they complained about the c7 being unbearably loud, and based on noise tests, i have to agree. I will check out scythe, thanks!
whatever the box cooler for the 1700 is, i actually dont know :p. also, do you know what bracket should use? the geek a20 requires a low profile bracket
I dont want the c7, as it is obscenely loud, and the Noctua adds another 50$ to the total, which I would rather avoid if i can. I am getting the upgraded side panel with a ventilation hole, plus I dont plan to OC this build, so temps should not be a concern. Thank you for the confirmation!
That was my initial concern
Hi, thank you so much for your reply!
No, the client is not using adobe CC, so the intel IGP and frequency advantage does not play a part for his editing workload. I completely agree with you about the rig not having enough GPU in it, but the person for whom i am building this pc was ok with some dropped frames with the benefit of saving money. I floated the idea of a workstation card instead, but that didnt really fit with their plans. On the ssd front, i would again agree with you, my initial build included a 500gb samsung 860, but they wanted a more budget option, hence the 128gb discount drive. Thank you so much for your feedback however! i will try and push for fitting a rx 5704gb or even a 4708gb if i can find one!
I am building the PC for him, so he will not have to buy a stock cooler. The build is about being small and powerful, and the stock amd cooler is more than enough to keep the 1700 running cool at stock. I did not mean to say 1700x, sorry, what i meant was 1700.
I want to keep the build as budget as possible for the performance expected. I myself would put this all in the enthoo elite then slap 3 loops on it, but I am building for someone who wants a small, powerful pc, for as little as possible. And since they dont want me to OC the cpu, putting an aftermarket cooler on it makes little sense.
For sure! i plan on either getting an r7 or the 2990wx. The fx is fine for me at the moment however, as i am just playing games at 1080p, and can usually get 60+fps on most AAA titles at very high.
Thanks! this was the first pc i ever built, and im quite proud of it!
I see! thank you!
Wait? How do you cut the cables? Sorry, complete modding noob, but doesnt that break them?
Where did you get the cables for this?
They are rebuilding the website RN
My motherboard primarily, but my gpu if i can as well
Yes i saw the launch today! It looks INSANE!
Thank you! however, i have now resolved the issue
sorry but no. that is unlikely. much as i love ryzen, hitting 4.ghz with a stock cooler is improbable. get a hyper 212 evo and you will hit 4 pretty easily
thank you! i will see if i still have warranty on it! once again, thank you!
i tried all ram in all configs. :( no post
i bought a new 2gb ram stick to test, and still nothing. but no kther mobo
the dpi switch is very handy!
for sure! amd is the best value for money in the cpu marktet (and lower end gpus)
i dont really play any MMOS, so that is not a concenr for me, i mainly want the threadripper for 2 reasons.
1) multitasking. the threadripper can tear apart a hundred tasks you throw at it at once. this is perfect for me, as i like to have multiple programs running.
2) not intel. i want to support amd, as they have made the cpu market actually competitive, and have kicked intel in the ***.
i was so tempted to go with vega cards, because of nvidia's absolutely horrible policies and stiffling of competition (stuff like gameworks) but sadly, the vega just doesn't deliver. i really wish there were decent non nvidia gpus out there, but the market there has been monopolized. and yeah i am probably going to wait for the 2080ti to launch
I still think my fx 6300 is keeping up fairly well, granted i have it OCd substantially, but it does the job for me. When i upgrade, i might just sell this build, as the case is a bit underwhelming, and i want to experiment with custom loop water cooling.my next build is going to be a huge step up, I didnt spend too much on this build because it was my first build ever, and didnt want to screw up expensive parts. For my next build, i am planning on creating a threadripper 2nd gen build with 1080ti sli and watercooling everything, including the ram.
i might not upgrade this one, i might just go for a whole new build once this thing starts to show its age. yes i do love redragon!
