Did you carbon wrap a MSI Pro Carbon MoBo?! Thats AWESOME! Very nice build. +1
I like it a lot, nice build and nice parts. +1
Thank you, the desk is granite and built into my home, it gets a bit cold though lol, i guess that could be good for thermals.
Thank you, sometimes people just need more information i guess lol.
from what i see, some parts do cost a little more in th UK, but in all honesty it was a nice list, thank you, and in the future I will consider a wider spectrum of parts.
Lol, that is $1442.51 (US dollars), congrats, your over the budget.
What a monster! Love it, great build!
Absolute beast of a build, very nice. +1
Nice build, very clean. If you can get that MoBo cable behind the cable shroud it will look a little more streamline, but that cable does look thick, nice job though. +1
Wholly CPU cooler, love the build, great case too.
Super cool, love the build, very nice.
Thank you for your concern on the financial aspect of a budget that was never mentioned. But worry not, he was very pleased with the build and has plenty of money left over, I will be sure to let you know if he cannot make his next months rent because of the extra $200.00 he spent on the parts he chose.
Correction, this is your argument, for you are the one raising the questions that I am simply here to answer. Also I did not know I was talking to the lead PC building authority, so I am sorry to upset you by choosing current generation parts. But the fact is the PC performs great and does exactly what it is meant to do and that is play games at 1080p. I’m sure the extra $205.05, won’t sent him to bankruptcy but I will keep you updated if it does, good day and Cheerio.
Why would I plan to upgrade, it’s not mine?
Lol I’m guessing you did not read the beginning of my build, he already owned the monitor, so....I built around what he already owned.
Thank you very much!
Yes, but a 5700 would be quite overkill for a 60 hz refresh rate 1080p monitor, so that was the reason for the RX 590, and like I said yes I could have gone with the cheaper combination but at the sacrifice of better IPC, PCIE 4.0, and other options that the X570 chipset has, the objective was to have a path to future upgradability, and I don’t believe the future is in a previous generation chipset.
Your probably right but thank you
Thank you, appreciate it!
For the CPU...the slightly better performance: https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-5-3600-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-2600/4040vs3955, for the X570 over B450, overall build quality and the ability to utilize PCIE Gen 4 in the future.
Yup, going with the 212 black, thanks again.
Awesome thank you!
yea i was looking at those, but i think im going for the darkrock from be quiet! performes great and looks great, and half the price of a kraken, which is what i was origionally going for.
I figured, but definately will pick a tower cooler with better looks, lol.
Thank you, a link to a build will be supplied
As far as lighting goes it looks good in the case, cannot comment on the diffusing because I did not notice any, but I was using CAM software for the lighting and it all worked perfectly. And yes the CPU runs good on the stock fan, did not see it go above 70C during load, but I just depends on your case and the fans, but if you desire to push on overclocking, then an aftermarket cooler or AIO will most likely be necessary. I hope this helped, thank you for your comment.
I guess I will do more research on Reference 64’s, thanks for the input.
Appreciate the information, I have seen a few benchmark videos myself, and almost all of them have the Vega 56 running just behind the 64 with in a %10 margin, they both outperform the 2060, I don't know how true this is but it was from a few benchmarks I have seen on the tube, I have been researching the Vega 56 for a few months now and have not seen too many board partner cards get too hot, as long as undervolted properly, I work on Aircraft electronics so I don't mind tinkering with things. I am just looking for people who have seen both of the Vega Cards performance in person at 1440p, I would love to take their opinions into account, because so far what I am seeing is that if I can over clock/ undervolt the Vega 56 to stock 64 or higher, then why should I spend an extra $100 for minimal performance, Liquid cooled 64 is out of the question, because they are still too expensive, and really not going to get any reference 64's, sure they are cheaper but at the cost of higher thermals and noise. Hope you can see where I'm coming from.
Thank you for your reply.
Yup already new that, looking for more on how the new performance is with the new drivers, people experienced in undervolting or OC, and is the price difference justifiable for the performance difference.
Thank you that means a lot, I try to make sure everything is perfect when building for someone. It helps to hear feedback from others, much appreciated.
Don't listen to reviews much, I like to test them out myself, it runs BFV just fine well above 60 fps on Ultra, RTX low.
No problem and thank you!
I don’t believe so, I did not directly connect any RGB headers. I’m pretty sure it was the usb 1 connection on the motherboard, tha is what connects the smart controller which is connected to the two included RGB light strips, remember that the RGB only comes with the H500i not the regular H500.
Yes it does and a smart controller, it’s awesome! Easy to use with the CAM software.
Hope that helps
I have not looked into it, but I have an MSI MoBo, and I can disable any lights on mine, so I can assume that it is the same.
Thank you, and yes upgrades are what makes PC’s great.
Not sure what you mean bud? Don’t have a “gfx” card and this is an AMD motherboard, so no an i7 4470 would definitely not be compatible.
Thank you, preference I suppose.
Lol sure thing
Don’t know you would have to ask him I suppose.
Thank you for your comment
