the h500 should come with a support bracket (I think). Consult the manual for your case and you'll probably find a solution.
Hard drive mounting is typically in the powersupply. Most cases don't support mounting drives in the front where visible but some do like this one. Make sure its a 2.5 drive though.
When using a vertical mount it is necessary to buy a riser cable. The kit he bought comes with one i believe
I bought a 4770k for like $100 around 1 year ago
Solid parts list just not pretty but if that's ok with you then congrats on the computer
Please fix your parts list and your cable management shown in the pictures.
Noctua makes hands down the best air coolers on the market but if you are on a budget then the Coolermaster 212 Evo is solid and theres a rgb version for a similar price.
Also, there really never is a reason to not overclock. It's free performance. You can do a moderate overclock and not have to worry about shortening the lifespan of your parts.
I extremely recommend a cooler upgrade. The Intel branded coolers are no where near good enough.
How good is that cooler
Make sure to pull back all the loose cables.
Did you have to modify it any way or did it fit fine?
Can you send a link to the aio sleeving
Nice parts list but I must admit the lack of cable management scares me
Personally I would've gone with a 280 or 240mm rad for your CPU just so that you can nice over clocks with cool temps
I'm looking to build a budget streaming build for a friend but they play on xbox. Do you have any clue how well your system does just streaming with maybe a couple chrome tabs open? I would really appreciate it
Personally I would've tried saving for the 9600k so you could overclock(or maybe gone with ryzen) but you have a pretty good gaming setup if that's all you're looking to do.
He's most likely planning on adding in another stick of ram to have 16gb.
Have you tried overclocking on it?
How does the motherboard perform? I’m about to get one myself
Good reasoning. I wasn't sure if you planned on upgrading or not.
Why did you spend 350 dollars for a x570 motherboard when you have a 2600x?
I have three suggestions/complaints.
I’m not sure why you went with a mini card when it really hurts the look of the inside. Maybe you can try returning it for a bigger one if it’s not too late?
Your ram is red and it looks like you tried to go with a blue theme. If you’re able I’m sure you could get identical specs for a similar price.
Finally this I just didn’t understand but you have 4 SSDs listed. Maybe this was a mistake but if not what was the idea behind that (out of curiosity)
Other than that your computer looks good. Maybe try tying down loose cables by your GPU
Personally I would trash the case and swap in a h500m from cooler master or a fractal design meshify c. NZXT’s h500 comes in a black and red which may look good
I don’t know about all this split funny business but I do know that Corsair and razer have some affordable membrane, mechanical, and hybrid keyboards that typically have RGB.
Looks good, do you know the difference between the fans you purchased?
I don't know how important aesthetics are to you but if you are looking for raw performance here's what I suggest: If you are looking for the best bang for the buck cpu i'd suggest waiting for Ryzen 3000 to launch. If you love intel I'd say the 9600k is your best bet. If 1080p gaming with med-high graphics is your thing then your graphics card is fine. If not, you could consider getting a GTX 1070 on ebay for 200$. If you aren't comfortable with that then there are some fairly affordable 1660ti's out there, other than that your system is good (besides the PSU) only other suggestions I would make is maybe a new case.
just tie down loose cable and pull loose cables from the front to the back.
Maybe sprinkle a touch of cable management in there?
From the picture it looks like you need to tuck in your cooler's cable
I hope that motherboard is one hell of a performer because it sure is ugly. While the 212 is good for a entry level cooler you really should be packing a higher quality cooler(and a better looking one IMO). Other than that the only aesthetic upgrades/improvments I can suggest is tucking in your cables better and maybe picking up a cable kit (https://amzn.to/2JoLYVz <-- I have the white and blue extensions and for 30 bucks its a great deal) . Your raw performance looks great so 0 suggestions there. Hope you take some of my advice
I really like your case choice. I was looking to get the mini version but was disappointed when I found out there wasn't a white version. All around great parts selection. Maybe add a rgb strip at the bottom of your case. The lights seems a bit even.
where does the budget part fit in to the title
Why is your h55 upsidedown
To be honest I would upgrade everything but the storage and powersupply if you are able. Main thing I would do is the gpu and ram. Just buy another stick of the same ram and look at some 1660ti's but if you are comfortable buying used (I've never had any problems so far) You can snag a 1070 on ebay for like 200 bucks. If you have a large budget I'd try switching to ryzen but if you're a intel fanboy then go for the 9600k
Guess your name fits your attitude
Can confirm I am 100% jealous.
Overall it’s a great parts list. Personally I would’ve gotten a 2200g and a cheaper b450 motherboard. Make sure to pick up some more fans, not sure how good it he airflow is in that case
I would’ve gone with a 8gb model gpu. There are some great deals on this site. The case brand I’ve never heard of, hopefully the airflow is good. I would’ve gone for a more trustworthy brand for a psu like EVGA. All you need is 500w 80+bronze. You sure are a nice brother though.
Not a huge fan of that case but there aren’t too many cool options for matx cases. My personal favorites are the Corsair 280x or the NZXT H400
Z390 is not necessary for non k processors. Too bad you didn’t get one, overclocking is a super cool topic to discuss
How is the airflow in that case? I just ordered one.
I’m doing a pretty similar upgrade to my computer. I managed to get a 2600 for 100 and a 480 for 110. Both brand new. I was still on ddr3. Looks good I saw those extensions on amazon but I decided to skip the pink. Only think I don’t like with your build is the case airflow looks questionable and the GPU sure doesn’t match. Hope it runs good for you.
Good build. Mobo looks a little excessive for your cpu choice. Not sure how airflow does in that case.
How does the cooler perform?
Very good looking. Not sure what he uses it for but gpu upgrade may be good idea.
Would you say a Matx motherboard would look strange in this case?
1000 for no gpu?
Dude you have such a nice pc please fix your cable management
How is the cable management on the case?
