thanks for the follow up, it must have been related to that windows update because all is back to normal again
thanks for your replies
I can verify tonight but it was one of those forced ones where my only option was to update and shutdown
sorry should have mentioned that , I did use Unigine Heaven and my benchmarks are low there as well
works great I have had no issues with this build at all
tested GTA myself, 1080p Very High Textures, Normal everything else and I was getting mid 50's FPS
for an iGPU I would say that's pretty impressive
cool thanks, for the power plugs are you using 2 separate 8 pin cables of that splitter cable that comes with the EVGA PSU
Still happy with the Vega 56? looking at the same card
still happy with that Vega 56? currently looking at buying the same card
so free sync really is a deal maker?
its actually very good, only tested two game so far while I am shopping for a GPU but it plays Street Fighter V and Fortnite 720p Max settings flawless
I have also played a bunch of retro games on retroarch but should be shocking that it plays those
ETAPrime (a Youtuber) was showing off this APU on a mini PC that emulates everything build and it runs everything up to Wii just fine on emulation
In ETAs video he was even playing GTA V on high settings 720p 60fps
overall I am impressed with the Vega 8 graphics but obviously will still get a better GPU when the price is right
Sweet thanks for the reply , I originally bought the monitor for PS4 pro because 4K 60hrtz was plenty
glad its also a viable monitor for gaming at 4K
I know the gaming enthusiasts will say 144hrtz its so much better but 60fps is my sweet spot
I have the same monitor, building my first PC...does the nvidia card play well with it?
Reading on the lack of freesync on Nvidia cards has be on the fence and leaning towards a Vega 56 but like the prices better for the 1070ti and other GTX cards
I havethe same Asus MG28UQ monitor does it play well with the GTX graphics card? I am building my first PC and the lack of freesync on nVidia cards has me worried
Is screen tearing not often enough to worry about it?
any screen tearing issues with that monitor, I have the same one but cautious to get a none AMD GPU because of screen tearing
I will get destroyed for saying controller and PC gaming but Ive figured out how to add my controller to Steam but I assume I have to stay in Big Picture mode to stay connected?
Than I can setup the desktop configuration for that controller in Steam to use the controller on none Steam apps as long as Steam is still running but minimized?
thanks a bunch that explained it very good
thanks again for the patience and time to help, the reason I am thinking M.2 is I would prefer to have just 2 SATA ports used as the other 2 are in bad spots on the board for cable management, I have a bunch of mechanical 2.5" drives so was going to RAID two of them for a big storage drive and use the M.2 for OS and running apps etc
thanks so much for explaining all that so last question, is this the right one for me for SATA speeds?
PCPP doesn't give me any compatible errors when I add it to my build but not sure how accurate that is or if it assumes you know some things on your own
ok thanks so SATA vs NVMe is the speed of the drive? NVME being the faster of the two?
so is SATA M.2 the equivalent in speed to a 2.5" SSD? is the speed of NVMe worth the cost just for boot up speeds and simple tasks (loading games opening apps) I dont do any video or photography editing so no rendering or anything
ok so that would effect the GPU if I had two M.2 drives installed but not if I only use one M.2 drive socket?
thanks for the tip, lets say I put two intakes in the front(the max that will fit in my case), I should only put 1 exhaust? which location is better? top because heat rises?
so if I see high temps try putting both fans in the front as intakes and no exhaust? before adding a 3rd or 4th fan?
thanks for the reply, that was my plan just have a good base that I can add too the system
GPU is for sure just waiting to see what boxing day sales are like, than like you said will have to monitor temps
correct the case came with the 2 120mm fans set as exhaust fans, it has lots of spots for air to be drawn in but I was planning on getting 2 more fans for the front as intake
thanks for the reply
Question about the fans, doing my first build I have the same board and case
Every YoutTube video I see on the fans its looks to come with a hub, so your saying you need an additional hub as well?
Could you be kind enough to briefly breakdown the connection setup to have all 4 fans connected ?
Do I use a cable like this for a GPU that had a 8 and 6 pin plug?
oh thanks so the 3.5 spot doubles for 2.5" as well? I was wondering why they said 3+1 2.5" drives , thank you for replying
Here is my current already purchased parts , just waiting on the case from a different vendor before I put it all together
Looking for some advise if my build has enough cooling? is the AMD stock cooler good enough or should I get a AIO?
Will be adding the GPU last as I am still not done my research to the point I am ready to decide, the RX 580 I believe fits my build since the monitor is free sync(adaptive sync) does anyone have recommendations better in the 400-500 CAD range?
would the 15mm thick 2.5" drives mount on the cable management side bracket or do you think the 9.5mm drives you have are the max thickness?
Thanks for the help
Where would an RX580 or 590 compare to the Vega’s
so in your opinion if your Monitor already had Free Sync you would only look at Radeon cards to take advantage of Free Sync?
Perfect thanks, my biggest concern was losing out on whatever feee sync does , but if it’s not that big of a deal I can at least widen my search to GTX 1060s and 1080s
FIghting Games, Shooters, Action RPGs like mentioned I am a casual so the mainstream games like
SFV, Dragonball FighterZ, Call of Duty, GTA V etc
do you find cable managment an is with an ATX PSU in the case, I know it states it fits but curious (SFX PSUs are expensive and limited)
Thanks for al the help
Much more clear now thanks for your patience, so depending on the included cables those 6 pin connectors could have 2 or 3 sata plugs on the other end
thanks I understand what the device side of the plug but what does a SATA cable look like on the PSU side?
even if we use the SF600 you mentioned I am looking at the "port" side
thanks , so the 8/6 pin PCIE connector cable will allow how many drives using the 6 Sata connector cables?
when you say 2 fan connector is it something like this ?
cool, I will be building my first PC so still learning a bunch in regards to RGB and the softwares used to control it, I guess ideally I would want Aura sync for all of them but some components I like use various software
does the PSU leave enough room for all your cables ? I am getting this case but torn if I need to go with a smaller SFX and more expensive PSU
are you using a splitter to connect both case fans to the one chassis header on the board?
is that ram working with Aura Sync or you use iCue for it?
