words can't describe how amazed i am right now for this build... wow!
also, isn't it a bit overkill even for 4k content??
but what exactly is you're looking for?
A car? pff hahahaha, who needs that? better have a 12 core 24 thread pc with a gtx 1080Ti smh
THREADRIPPAH build +1
I would stay away from the multiplier with that power supply if i were you... FXs are very power hungry and that PSU isn't gonna cut it in any way, not for a high OC for 24/7 use.
no matter what you have a very smart upgrade you can do to any system is the power supply i mean yeah you could buy a very nice quality psu for around $60-90ish dollars overclock and be good for a while, then, when it's time to upgrade you just buy the main components and don't worry about power, even more so now that CPUs and graphics cards alike have become very power efficient so i would sugget you looking for a nice 650w psu to grow in the future.
Power supply a bit overkill for this build in my opinion but hey... a kickass build is a kickass build!
very... interesting setup you have, pretty neat. Now it doesn't make much sense spending $140 for getting a brand new FX 8350, grab a used one for less than $50 at ebay or something it should still keep you afloat for a while. Ryzen is awesome but also intel has coffee lake around the corner, wait and see what also the blue tem has to offer
Solid build with outstanding cable management. It still has some room to grow, just get a beter psu overclock that FX to 4.5 - 4.8Ghz (very feasible with that kraken AIO) upgrade the graphics card and you're set
why i3 though? still awesome console build
3.8 unstable? at what voltage?
i'm a simple man... i see FX builds i upvote
Great build! +1 also, have you tried overclocking that 1600x?
i think i have a better option for you guys... take a look and tell me what you think about it!
Consider intel's pentium G4560 it has hyperthreading and it'll cost you much less than an i3-7100. being this pentium a 7th gen processor it supports slightly faster RAM (2400Mhz instead of 2133Mhz ram) regardless of the chipset (but only the NEW chipsets being B250 H270 Z270 etc not the old skylake chipsets)
Bbeing that said get the cheapest 8gb (2x 4gb ) kit you can find running @ 2.4Ghz with a minimum CAS latency of 15
Motherboard side of things consider one with the b250 chipset they're cheaper and perform the same as H270 mobos. i would recommend you the GIGABYTE B250m-ds3h best "bang for the buck" b250 there is in my opinion.
As for your question: Yes, a RX 480 is much better than a 470 the extra money is really worth it. i wouldn't suggest Nvidia's GTX 1060 (either the 3gb or 6gb version) as it performs exactly the same as it's AMD couterpart but for more $$$. try to get a sapphire NITRO or a Powercolor red devil... amongst all 480s those cards kickass.
hope i was of helpings :D
my thoughts exactly.. . this hyperthreaded pentium is a killer value at just what? $80-90 USD this is pretty much an underclocked i3-7100
Asrock's z270 lineup support full range BCLK overclocking and i wonder if you could OC this cpu to basically get an i3 for the cheap! the only con to this is that those mobos cost more but hey at least later on you can upgrade to a k i5 or i7 :)
here's an alternate version of this portable lan build. kabylake cpu with the cryorig c7 in silverstone's RVZ02B
