Yeah I won't upgrade for at least a year or two longer even though I've had this one for over a year already. You shouldn't have to upgrade anything every 6 months and there are plenty of actually valid points to make showing ryzen benefit over Intel and same can be said for proving Intels benefits over AMD. They trade blows for sure. But any current CPU will last you years.
Yeah it can get pretty loud
Finally getting around to actually commenting... Love the build man! And if you wanna brute force it a bit you can do what I did and throw a Noctua inustrial fan on your cooler
Bro it's a completely different CPU from a different manufacturer.... Of course the voltages are gonna be different
I think I'm running 1.275 for 4.8.... Are you sure you're not running it too high?
Where did you see good voltages? Lol
Looks clean! Do you have the latency set correctly on the ram?
There's always people who don't understand much and think they know better than the person building lol.
Windows Media Creation Tool. That's what I used to make a flash drive with Windows on it for any builds I do... Whenever a friend is building a PC I'll throw windows on there for them and they can decide after that if they wanna pay for activation or not
People not paying for a key can handle it if something goes wrong. Especially considering how many users Microsoft has screwed with updates.
You can literally get windows 10 for free from Microsoft and just not buy an activation key... Plenty of people do that and the only thing restricted will be personalising your background... I'm more concerned with you saying that's a big "no no" since a lot of people do it.
Wait you're kidding right?
What do you mean by upgrade every 6 months? That doesn't make too much sense... You don't have to upgrade at all. Plus if you buy an 8700k then you'll pretty much be guaranteed to outperform even the next ryzen release...
I hate to say it but if you wanna do high refresh rate gaming then you might wanna go Intel and then also the 1070ti is considered entry level for 1440p... Honestly I have a 1080p monitor and I'm rocking a GTX 1080 with an 8600k... I know my set up is missing the mark at this resolution but honestly my thought process was building a PC that could max out 1080p for a couple of years. You might find yourself having to always play with lower settings going that route.
Hmm it's gonna drop more soon for sure. Even now you can get a good 16 gb kit for around 100 (still not as cheap as it should be but still.) But yeah Nvidia/Intel need some competition bad!!
Hmm well honestly if you're sticking with 1080 resolution I'd just wait. I don't fully believe all the AMD rumors but if there's any truth to them then budget builds are gonna get a huge bump. Just set aside a little money til you can do the full upgrade man
What resolution/refresh rate? If you're into the ryzen series wait for CES in a couple of weeks!
Just keep rocking this thing til it don't work. Great job on not breaking the bank!
Lmao I can only imagine. Lighting software is a pain in the ***!
Buildzoid does in depth reviews of all parts of a mobo and breakdowns on GPUs. Enjoy
Sorry! I was commenting on too many builds last night and got you confused with another person with a 7920x. For you the best z390 board I've seen was gigabytes auros extreme. They had the most powerful VRM.
Yeah I was commenting on too many builds last night
I'm commenting on too many build right now
Upvote for purple lmao. Very nice build! The 8700k is a fantastic processor. Should last you for a couple GPU upgrades at that resolution
Get the x299 dark from EVGA. It's always on sale for 250 and has active cooling on the VRMs. Originally $500. Also sorry I called this **** fake lmao. You seemed like nothing but a troll
There was so much more to this comment when I posted it! I was asking what clocks you get when you run them SLI??
Why did you spend so much on that GPU
Tidy up dem cables boy
Sorry if I sounded like an ***
Be careful with those XMP profiles. Generally they will overvolt your ram beyond what's needed
This is obviously fake
Yeah you are right
This. Clocks aren't gonna match, you're gimping the performance of the water cooled GPU and then gimping that founders edition having it centered in the case. It's sucking in nothing but hot air.
Tough stuff but also not his build... His parts list for the two main components doesn't match at all. And itx is always hot, especially when they don't vent where the GPU is. Stupid case design
You can overclock that ram easy though. I have 2400 lpx stable at 3000.
Because he spent an extra $60 on a CPU meant to be overclocked. Pretty sure it wont even run at spec on that board.
Had this case myself. Picked up 3 static pressure fans and really helped with temps but will get kinda loud
You should detail that out more when you recommend it. Although 91C on these cards is almost not sustainable and the performance hit you take kinda negates the purpose of high end parts
Looked through the parts list just to make sure you got that EVGA ram
Mounting your GPU vertically will kill performance and shorten the life of your card in PC cases that do not have adequate room between the side window and the fans on the GPU which his case does not. Be careful with looks focused recommendations like these. It'll only hurt inexperienced builder's.
Overkill now and still relevant maybe 4 or 5 years down the line? Seems like a solid investment if you have the money.
If you game at 1080p your processor is the most important part. High end processors can handle higher frame output from your GPU. At 1080p gaming your processor is more important and the best way to future pro... I'm sorry there's no such thing
Nice build! Love the cooler
Is anyone actually reading what he's doing with it? Just makes all of you seem dumb with your comments.
PC building, where men actually stop and say, "Maybe I should look this up."
Yeah you could've saved over $200 on a cheaper Mobo and cooler because the unlocked processors only needs a cheap air cooler
Intel runs dual channel so you have to put the ram in 1 and 3 or 2 and 4 for it to run dual channel but I'm pretty sure ryzen runs quad channel so I think they're fine next to each other. Double check just to make sure
Looks good! Bit late on the comment but I'm going with the d15 too! So really no issue at all stock clearance with LPX? Really good to know
Front most spot at the top of your case
