Good thing I used paypal. Or was that affected as well?
Nice build! Is it as portable as it looks? Is it very noisy?
Also, I like your desktop background. I use pictures from wlop too.
The only good reasons I can see to get a new gpu are for better 4k gaming so you can keep the fps at 60 in more games. In this case you probably already shelled out for a nice 4k monitor or something and you probably have the money for a 2080ti.
The other reason is for real time ray tracing, but we haven't seen any benchmarks for that yet because it isn't even out in any games.
In other words, there is no reason to get the 20 cards now unless your filthy rich, or have ocd about frame drop on your 4k monitor. They're both legit reasons. If I had the money for a 4k setup I might want to upgrade.
I think 90% of the people buying the 20 series cards are actually the third category, Nvidia fanboys who are addicted to the bleeding edge.
Its 12mp, but I've heard apple has good digital controls and lenses to make pretty good pictures.
I just took a quick snapshot with my new phone's 13mp camera. It was better than I expected, but still not close to being as good as your shots. Although it was through a plastic window and I didn't mess with the lighting at all.
For those shots in the dark, was it actually completely dark or did you have to get the lighting just right so that everything was visible but the RGB lighting was still brightest?
Yea, I thought the bubbles looked pretty cool. At first I thought you had some extra tubes that were not connected to the loop with a bubble machine in them.
What iPhone do you have? those are way better pictures than what I got with my phone. admittedly I only had an 8mp camera on a $100 phone...
I haven't tried taking pictures with my new 13mp phone camera.
Not only is the build amazing, but the photography is really awesome too. I've seen many good builds look like crap because of bad photography.
How did you take such good pictures? Especially in the dark. Was it a good camera, just skill, or both?
On a side note, I've heard that bubbles in the loop are bad, did those work their way out or was it just for the pictures?
The VRM block is the two pipes on the right side of the CPU, the one above is just another reservoir.
Wow, the only thing the old i7 is much better at is multi core stuff. And this is a gaming build so it wouldn't matter that much. Esspecially with the 5Ghz OC on the i3. Intel really improved when AMD released Ryzen. Now I'm considering the i3 or i5 8th gen instead of Ryzen 5 2600x.
Hey, if you want to turn off the orange light on the mobo, its in the BIOS under the Peripherals category.
Really? are you sure you have the Deepcool - GAMMAXX 400? the lights come on when the fan gets power, they might be dim if the fan is spinning really slow but you can't turn the lights off. either you got a different model or you got a defective product. maybe they put the wrong fan in.
Edit: sorry I just realized you were talking about the rear exhaust fan, not my deepcool cpu fan. The stock casefan that came with the case was just a plain black fan. no lights. I replaced it with the cooler master sickle flow. (its not actually the red version, I'm too lazy to change it.)
Kinda amazing price. What can it actually run? I imagine it wouldn't even be able to run Skyrim at 60 fps.
You just using it for League of Legends or Counter Strike?
I found an option to turn off the audio LED in the bios settings under Peripherals.
Thanks, I did put a lot of time into planning this. mostly because it's my first build and I couldn't afford to mess up.
Yea I love it, I have Linux Mint on one and Windows 10 on the other.
takes about 15 sec to shutdown and restart into the other OS.
Never built a computer before and was wondering what was wrong with the stock case fans. I'm guessing that they were just cheap fans that were noisy, didn't move as much air, and didn't look as good?
Also, why did you use the af 120 and the sp120. could you have used the same fan for all 3 positions?
Actually, the case fan installation was as far as I got in this video before I decided I needed to get some sleep for work the next day.
I'm thinking of getting a cheap SSD too. Why would you recommend the 85o over the sp550?
Thanks, Still haven't heard if the motherboard is ok though.
