How is the air flow in this case? I see you are doing an aio but if you had to do air would feel that the way the front intake is set up that it would be chocked?
Had a question about the monitor. You said you were using the g-sync overide and it has reduced tearing. I was thinking of picking this up and pairing it with my 980ti so I won’t be able to use the override so will this produce a lot of screen tearing what was your experience before the override?
How is the GN27D? I’m between this monitor and the Samsung CJG5.
I don’t know about that particular monitor but I do know that some TVs can, on my vizio the 5th hdmi does 4K 60Hz or 1080p at 120Hz. I would do some investigating probably contact the manufacturer and see what they say.
Hey I really love the build. That's the best looking 1070 FE I've ever seen great job on it. I had a few questions for you. How well does that red match the motherboard, I have the z170 version of it and I wanted to do some paint work on my case. Also I was look for a decent exhaust fan that is 80mm how well are thoughs working for you?
Yea through the base clock but honestly I haven't felt the need to yet. I don't feel like its holding anything back and most games are more GPU dependent.I really just wanted the option when it does need a little boost to keep up.
6100 is a really solid Cpu and you can over clock it on certain mobos with the right bios. Plus he has an upgrade path and could always swap it out with an I5 or 7.
Not at all I can't hear them over the ambient noise in the room. Mine is in the living room and we use it not only to game but also to watch movies and I've never noticed any noise .
I love a budget build and seeing how creative people can get to get the most bang for their buck. I like the build. Most of the parts are pretty solid choices and I see an upgrade path. The only two critiques I have is the motherboard and psu. I feel that you could have put a little more towards them to get better parts not that they are bad they are not just if you ever wanted to upgrade in the future these will limit your ability to overclock and crossfire or sli. I feel this build is perfect for your needs and is a solid build. You could easily swap out the processor and GPU if you decide you need more power to a locked I5 and a 1060 6gb or rx 580 and see a substantial upgrade in performance so you picked a good path. +1
Pick up a couple scycle flow cooler master fans and put them in push pull like I did. I can't even hear it.
Nice to see that one person was able to get the Asus strix 1070 in this case. I just bought one and I never thought about GPU size restrictions I'm glad to see its possible. I know all about a squeeze I got mine in the elite 130 lol it's basically the entire side. I am planing on putting my build in the 240 for better airflow and a case that can show it off.
I had a question about thoughs case fans I was considering getting them but I wasn't sure on their quality. I like the looks of them. Are they loud do they provide good airflow?
You're doing a great job. Nice solid choices for upgrades I like it. I really wouldn't bother upgrading the CPU either definitely if all you are using it for is gaming. +1
I would have to agree it is a beautiful set up but I feel you could have gotten alot better parts for the same money. For the same budget you could have gotten a 1060, I5 combo. We're you planning on upgrading later on or were you going for something specific with this particular build? I do think it's beautiful I'd love to see more pictures of it.
You could go with cooler master sickle flow case fans that's what I got and they produce more airflow and less noise then the ones you've got now and they don't cost an arm and a leg.
Ugh mixing an Intel processor with an AMD GPU gross haha just kidding. Sweet build I love that case but I don't think I could ever drop the much on one I really like the red and black version. +1 from me.
I think you do great. You came in under $650 after mail in rebates and got a decent gaming rig. That was a great choice for a GPU, in the future you could get a freesync monitor. All of your choices are really solid and one day in the future when you want to upgrade all you've got to do is switch out your mobo and processor thoughs are your only weak points but at the price point a very solid choice +1 from me great job.
It's compatible with all 115X sockets including 1151. It works great too and is really quite as you can see I put it in a push pull configuration. I would highly recommend it, when I was choosing a cooler it was between this one and the nzxt kraken but the kraken came off sale so I went with the H60 I have no regrets it works great and I couldn't ask for more.
Yea that's possible could also just be the cooler it's self if it's got air in the radiator or if the pumps not running like it should IDK yea I looked at some others some people are saying it runs cool others warmer like yours only way to find out is trial and error I almost went with the red and black version of the cooler but ended up going with the h60 instead just due to its track record and popularity. Yea how about that strix cooler I love mine run the fans constant can't hear em even when it starts getting warm and it add two more fan headers and VR ready Asus was ontop of it with that one.
Nice build it looks nice and tidy. I was surprised you could fit all of that in there. I've changed my comments from before I don't feel like arguing on a sight that's about creating.
How is the air flow in that case have you stress tested it yet?
Yea 1050ti doesn't produce alot of heat so it should be fine. I think at the lower cost range that AMD has the advantage for the cheaper free sync monitors but yea the 1050ti is a decent budget GPU can't go wrong with it. I think I've seen them below $120 a few times when they go on sale for a new one. I like the case it fits in perfectly with any media center.
Yea I definitely would be. I wouldn't be able to make a move on it until next Thursday though broke seems to be the norm lol. When I started my build last year I picked up the elite 130 and I like it but I ended up putting more and more money into it and I've got all these nice parts and no windows lol seems like a shame to hide all thoughs perty parts heh. How much were you looking to get for it?
Do both for sure ssd for your OS and things you use most and hdd for pictures and games you don't play very often. Too bad they don't ship to USA I like it looks different compared to what I've seen.
Love the build, how is the c1 performing I've heard alot of good things about cryorig. I'm actually thinking about switching my own case for either the same one you have or possibly the v1 core how was building in that case does it feel solid?
Nice build congrats on a successful first build. I like it my concerns would be airflow in that case I would definitely swap out the case fans it came with, with something of high quality to get the least amount of noise and to provide the most airflow possible. What kind of CPU cooler is that I don't think I've seen it before? Also in your parts list you have a 212 evo listed did you have both? The only other suggestion I could make is getting an ssd for a boot drive 120gb ish. It's very nice though an plenty powerful I love my 1070.
I like what you are going for here, it's a great start. First thing to help improve your temps in that case is to flip the fan on your CPU to pull the heat from you CPU and send it out of the case. Secondly you have got to get rid of that open air GPU it's just pumping heat into that case. You definitely need a blower style gpu in a case like that it basically allows your GPU to keep its self cool and dumps that heat out the rear and it never enters the case.
I would recommend if you get a new gpu to get https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Hz648d/sapphire-radeon-rx-470-4gb-video-card-11256-00
This would be an upgrade and would take care of your heating issues. You could also put in a 1050 ti or 1060 3gb they don't produce much heat either and you can get the 1050ti for around $120 at times.
I love that green theme. I would love to see more pictures of it. +1
I like how clean and tidy it is and I would agree it would look great with some red dye added to that coolant. +1
I like it stretching the money to get the best bang for your buck. I'm assuming your next step will be an additional stick of ram to take advantage of dual channel and an ssd? +1
