Yes it really good, it has 6 cores, 12 treads and can be OC to around 3.7GHZ to 4.0 GHZ.
It has great performance. Check gamers nexus for more in-depth details.
Solid State Drive.
your build is excellent!
That makes sense, even your combination of i5-6500 and GTX 1060 will be really strong at 1080p and even lighter titles at 1440p.
There is not much of upgrade path, the best options are a FX 8350 or FX 8370.
If you do not want a new CPU + motherboard, the best advice on this platform would be to overclock to relieve the bottleneck a little bit.
Another option is to sell the 6300 and get a 8300 for around $80 and OC but again not much of upgrade.
If you have the latest bios get 7600k as it newer.
That pretty good, you should however get the R5-1600, non X version.
This is because they both overclock the same and it comes with a good stock cooler. So you spend less on the CPU and do not have to buy a cooler. There is not performance difference between the 1600 and 1600x when OC.
Water-cooling would be more of your choice as I personally use Large Tower Style Air cooler like Noctua NH-D15.
The R5-1600 has only a 65TDP, so any midrange cooler like Hyper 212 evo and up would fine.
Your build is really good, and has excellent Video editing/streaming power.
Your pretty much good gaming and video editing.
Yes it good, and it has lights.
Really if possible get a K series in the i5, serves you better in the long run.
IF you are not overclocking your OK since you already have the MOBO.
This build is very strong at 1440p. your in the good.
Sine you have the SSD already for the OS, your fine.
Your pretty much good, keep the SDD and save for the HDD.
This way you do not have to Clone your OS or reinstall.
The 3GB 1060 will handle everything you need at 1080p.
Damn, Since it already built a 1 TB HHD and another stick of RAM would be the best choices.
The most for the CPU is a i7-7700 but it's the non k, so not very worth while.
If your considering a AMD build, the R5-1600 is really good.
It depend if you can get a USED I7, it makes sense.
However the H-97 were not meant to be overclocked.
It may be better to wait and do a upgrade to a R5-1600 or i5/i7 k series that way you get DDR4 and a better CPU.
if your are going New a R5-1600 and good B-350 motherboard with heat-sinks on the VRM would be just fine.
Pretty equal to GTX 1070 in SLI.
You pretty much in the Good, Keep the SSD and save for HDD.
SSD boot times are really nice and makes the Overall experience on the PC much snappier.
What games do you intend to play before buying your HDD?
Will work excellently for 1440p,
If you going for such a build a monitor around 144HZ would be excellent to take advantage of the higher frames.
Currently if you have the GTX 1070, the main trouble would be the CPU, given the specs, your best upgrade is the i5-4690k or the i7-4790k used.
if you have to buy new a R5-1600 and B-350 should work, but you will have to get DDR4 RAM.
Questions - what price are you buying the RX 480?
Also give your CPU and motherboard budget have considered a R5-1400 and R5-1500x?
IT should be Ok at 1080p medium to High preset in Overwatch.
The GTX 680 is equal to a GTX 960.
Most modern cards will outperform it from RX 570 go up.
Your CPU is still very powerful and if you need more power just overclock it.
Yes, it also better to buy a platform that will last you a while, especially since your are streaming.
The R7-1700 is excellent for the streaming purpose and you should go with 1070 if your aim for High FPS at mas settings.
Since your are going for basic build, Ryzen is not recommend because it has tremendous OC potential.
A GOOD basic CPU is G4560
And decent card is RX460/560 or GTX 1050.
Change the Graphics Card to RX 570, this will help the most in games.
Get i7-7700k so you can get the most frames for you dollar.
If you intend to Video edit, workstation programs and streaming, the Ryzen lineup is recommended.
The rosewill is not a bad PSU, to see how the rating are when in amazon look for Verified, these people who purchased it. Also check Johnny Guru for PSU reviews.
Smart one on allocating the most money on the GPU.
If your looking for the highest frames the i7-7000k is better buy.
Consider upgrading your GPU to the GTX 1080 if you want max out more games.
The BEST AIR cooling options are
3.cryorig r1 ultimate
I have used the Noctua and Phanteks. Both are extremely worth if you have the space in your case.
Either build is not bad.
Both PSU work fine and will not give much trouble. So go with better MOBO. IF you intend to OC heavily then get better PSU, if it is a mild OC both will do just fine.
good SOLID BUILD!
A good CPU, MOBO, and GPU, you got it right.
the R7 1700 and GTX 1070 are a great combo.
I use Noctua also and it extremely quiet and very impressive on cooling.
Yes, Ryzen is the new line up of CPU from AMD. These were released from AMD into 2017.
The models are from lowest to highest are
Every single one will outperform the FX 8350.
You should research articles for Ryzen VS FX on google for more information.
As you are new building you should consider the following parts for your build.
R5-1400 - CPU
MSI- B350 Tomahawk - Motherboard
RX 570 or GTX EVGA 1060 3GB - Graphic card.
Are you buying these parts new?
If you are, you should go with Ryzen.
The AM3+ socket is bit dated for 2017 build. FX 8350 is based on 2011 design there no need to go this route as ryzen is here.
A R5-1400 would outperform it.
Also reduce the case price to budget case and spend more no modern day GPU for either GTX 1050 to 1060 or AMD RX 560 to 580 series.
This usually included in aftermarket CPU coolers.
If you do not trust the thermal paste you can get Noctua or Thermal Grizzly.
Pretty much good now. Should be fine and will do everything she needs.
Nope, pretty much nail it.
One thing if you have the money is to get 3000MHZ Ram and a 1 x 8GB stick, so to leave room for an upgrade to 16GB of RAM.
Go to youtube and search for a channel called TECH CITY, he has a build called the Ryzen Cookie Cutter with benchmarks and game play,
In this case since the price is the same go with the R7-1700x.
There only 2 MATX boards that have crossfire not SLI.
MSI - B350M MORTAR ARCTIC Micro ATX AM4
Gigabyte - GA-AB350M-Gaming 3 Micro ATX AM4
If you really need the small form factor the best option is the i7.
It depends on what you wish to do with your setup if it gaming at the highest FPS the i7-7700k, it is the choice, if it video editing, streaming and workstation the R7 is your choice.
Note if your are Overclocking there is no reason to get the 1700x or 1800x as the R7 1700 get to same OC as the others and performs the same for a lesser price.
Depend on Games, your Resolution and FPS you want.
1070 is all round great beast at 1080p and 1440p.
The GTX 1080 is more for 1440p 165HZ max setting and 4K.
Good Card, What brand and model?
The price is good.
Nice build, Could we get more pics?
A gtx 1060, RX 580 are your best matches.
When you upgrade you CPU go with something better.
Gaben bless thee. Welcome to PC master race!!!!!!!!!
Good Card, but remember the price is close to the 1070 mini cards and those will blow away any 1060.
GeForce gtx 1060 strix is nice and has good cooling and noise levels.
1060 is great for 1080p.
1070 is monster at 1080p and 1440p. Really good for high refresh rates.
I am not sure what you are going for, but if it for gaming mainly,
The second build is better "BASIX".
The R5-1600 is excellent value for money and does not need the Hyper T2, the stock cooler would be enough for a modest OC.
The GTX 1070 is great choice for High FPS gaming in 1080p.
For the price range the RX 570 or the GTX 1060 3G are your top options.
If you intend 1080P ultra setting the GTX 1070 is the best solution.
What processor do you intend to use?
Overall great build.
The R5 1600 is an excellent choice.
The RX 580 is best option as you intend to a YouTube Gamer correct? If you intend to stream and video edit, your best option is to go with best card you can afford. If it is the RX 580 it makes the most sense as it provide the most frames and higher lows.
