I don't really have a limit honestly. I was considering an XLR mic as well, but I also wouldn't mind a mixer that works good independently without an XLR mic.
I appreciate it! Hopefully it'll be up in the Completed Builds soon.
Huh... I could've swore the H115i was a lot thicker. Lile, dummy thicc. Guess that solves that problem then! Thanks.
Where exactly is this fan controller that's built into the case? I've seen several reviews on this case, but can't recall seeing a built-in fan controller.
Yeah, I've pretty much made up my mind on Intel. I also like this Z390 board for this chip cause it has 4 RGB connectors. All the AMD boards I looked at had no more than 2. Having 4 opens up a ton of flexibility for all the RGB parts I'm getting.
Yeah, I'm fully aware of the dangers of opening up a PSU. Out of the question for sure. And the case I've selected doesn't have a PSU shroud, so getting this PSU for its looks makes total sense.
In other news, I heard back from ASUS support, and they informed me that this PSU's planned release in the U.S. is most likely going to happen in the last week of November. So that answers that...
Not really looking for cost efficiency. How many RGB PSUs are out there? I wanna get it for a new RGB build I'm making, and it'd go perfectly with my other RGB components I'm getting.
You may point towards Thermaltake's RGB PSUs but the issue with those is that they're not compatible with ASUS Aura Sync like the rest of my build, whereas the ROG Thor is straight from ASUS themselves.
Hmm. That's interesting. I don't understand why there's no information about a U.S. release date. Surely they wouldn't not release it here.
I'm a little embarrassed to say that I forgot wall-mounting was a thing... That may actually be a huge help.
It's also likely I will get a bigger desk too. I've been wanting a new one for a little while anyway.
I appreciate the RAM suggestion, but I'm still putting my fans on the rad. I know they're not SP fans, and they're not optimal, but it's not gonna make my CPU melt, especially given the size of the rad. As for the SSD choice, I previously had the Ryzen 2700X selected with a different board, and that board surprisingly didn't have a slot for an M.2 SSD, or at least that's what PCPP told me in the compatibility notes, so I chose the Samsung SATA SSD and just didn't change the SSD back to an M.2 when I chose Intel again. I don't remember which board it was though. But I'm likely going with the 9900K now given what I've learned from submitting this topic, so I guess I may as well grab an M.2 SSD.
That would be a cool build, but I've kinda made up my mind on my spec list. I prefer my full tower cause it's easier to work in, and the cable management will be easier. I'm not really trying to save money with this build. I'm content with what I have picked out. I appreciate your help though.
Well I probably should've specified in my original post that I'm kinda going all out with this PC. I went all out with the one I have now, but it's showing its age after about 4-5 years. I'm doing the same with this one, but this time with RGB! So with that being said, I'm not super worried about price. I'm kinda making a dream build of sorts (Without getting a 7980XE + quad 2080Tis lol).
Getting a $100 board is outta the question. Even if I did go Ryzen, I'm still gonna get an ASUS RGB board, and those usually run about $150-$200 on the AMD side of things from what I've seen, but I'm ok with paying a premium for the best looking AND best performing products.
Here's my new build as it stands right now: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Weeaboo-Jones/saved/
EDIT: Also the reason I don't have a GPU on that list is because I have upgraded my GPU, which is an EVGA 1080Ti, and I will be carrying that GPU over to this new build.
The size of the case isn't really the issue. It's my monitors mainly. I have a full tower right now in fact. (Cooler Master Storm Stryker). Besides, I much prefer a full tower cause it's easier to work in, and the cable management is a bit easier. It comes down to desk space. I have 2 monitors already, and I honestly don't know how I'm gonna fit the Acer Predator alongside 1 of them, let a lone both. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it though. I may need to save up a little more and cram a bigger desk in my room.
I know, but again, I hadn't planned on keeping my current PC for streaming. I was gonna sell it. Getting a bigger monitor is easier to fit in than a 2nd PC with its own monitor.
Well I'd rather not buy a whole other separate PC just for streaming. I already have my whole spec list picked out except for the CPU. And just for the actual PC itself (not including new peripherals & monitor), it's already around the $1700 mark. It would be even more than that, but thankfully I already have a good GPU that I'm gonna carry over from my current PC, which is a 1080Ti. I do have my old 780 that I could put back into my current PC after I build my new PC & keep this PC for streaming.
Here's my spec list for the new build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Weeaboo-Jones/saved/
I'm not too worried about price, but I wouldn't be against saving a few extra dollars if the difference in performance wasn't big enough, but someone linked benchmarks while streaming, and the gap in performance was actually fairly big.
Well I do have my current PC that I was gonna sell. If I can't get a lot of money out of selling it, I guess I could keep it. It has an i7 4770K @4.2Ghz, 32GB RAM & a few SSDs. But my issue with having a 2nd PC just for streaming is how much room that would take up. As it stands in my current room, there's no room whatsoever for a 2nd PC setup, but I may be moving soon, so I could have more room in the future, but also potentially less. Won't know for a little bit.
There's another option I've thought about though. I do have a laptop that has an i5 7300HQ CPU, a 1050Ti & 8GB of RAM. Would it be possible to stream off of this laptop while gaming on my main rig? I know its CPU is only a quad core without hyperthreading, but if it's only streaming, could it handle it?
Well in that case, how about Threadripper vs 2700X? 32 threads is insane.
