+1 sooooo true.
Ummmmm... wheres your IO shield?
Umm... wow. Might have to use this case for an upcoming build.
Wow your really getting 60 degree C under load on the CPU, really good for such a small cooler.
What are you CPU temps under load (gaming and or Aida 64), just wanted to know as I'm doing a similar build with the same cooler and a 6700K.
I get you can edit on an i5 it's just much easier with an i7 due to the hyper threading. I also get than an i7 will run warmer, all I'm trying to make sure is that a non OCed i7 won't get "dangerously" hot when editing and cooled by a C7. I also get this case is extremely limiting but if my temps are acceptable then it's looks more then make up for potential upgrade losses IMO.
When I edit video it's usually 4K and I want to make sure I have enough power rather then not enough.
Don't really want to do a custom loop, at least for my first build. I might add a loop in later tho. I saw the P115 but I'm also going for a blue and white build so the C7 fits perfectly. If the P115 worked with an overclocked i5 I'm sure I'll be fine with a non OCed i7. Sketch af but I could alway put a fan aimed at my PC next to the window when editing if my temps are too high :P
It's also a mostly open air case but with a small mobo area. Lian Li PC-Y6
Lol no water cooling support in the case. The i7 won't be pushed that often weekend gaming and a weekly or so vide edit.
That's the problem I can only fit 60mm or less in this case
Ah thanks so much mate!
Deregard this I called my dad's friend who's a software engineer and he was able to help me.
This may seem like an extremely weir question but here me out. First don't feel obligated to do this, but could you measure the top "thing" on the mother board (the piece that stick out from the motherboard its self with the ROG logo on it just above your CPU). The reason why is because I want to use this motherboard in the Lian Li PC-Y6 and I only have 60mm of clearance. Once again if you can't or just don't want to it's completely fine I understand. I also asked someone else but it looks like with your case it may be a little easier to measure it.

True lol, the more I thought of it the more I liked it.
Yeah I still love the Evolv it's just that a yacht PC will turn heads. With the X16 slot the only thing I would have gotten is possibly a second card and an Elgato HD60 Pro and both can be somewhat over come buy either selling the 1080 and buying a more powerful card and buying the HD 60 S instead. Coming from an Xbox One the "limitations" don't seem bad at all maybe if I was always a PC gamer they might have seemed worse. At least for my first build I want something extremely unique.
Also both my keyboard and mouse pad have a USB 2.0 pass through.
The io ports isn't that big a deal to me because the evolv only has 2 front USB and as a photographer I already need an adapter as that's way to few. The audio is a slight pain as if I wanted to plug in my m50x that wouldn't be the easiest, but my primary headphones the Astros use optical audio for the dac "mix amp" and plug into that. I see your points and that's exactly what I'm seeing if I can live with. The type-c isn't so much an issue any more as I can sacrifice an NVMe SSD for a mobo with that.
Really nice mate
Get those cigarettes outta here :'(
that looks amazing
Really nice builds +1 mate
Thats what I was thinking, im well aware of games the dont support 21:9 and for those I have a 1080p Asus from my Xbox One.
Yeah it's a gift that me and my sister are splitting the cost of haha.
They've never used 21:9 but they have seen them and said they like the way it looks. The main things my parents do on computers are: Netflix, TurboTax, Facebook, and my dad works from home so he needs something moderately powerful.
It's okay, thanks mate!
+1 the Prodigy M
Thanks man, I'm thinking about putting this in an office PC that will occasionally run CPU intensive tasks.
How are your CPU temps with the C7?
This will explain it better https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNc2fKuVnGU
IPS has great color reproduction and little fade with viewing angles. If I take my TN panel and look at the screen from an angle the colors either looked washed out or faded, with my IPS I can look at it from different angles and have very minimal color change.
Okay good, just wanted to make sure you knew.
No problem mate. Any other questions just PM me.
Also, I looked at your build and you don't have a wireless network adapter. So unless your right next to a router or modem you will need one.
Since you have the RX470 don't expect 60 fps ultra on battlefield 1 (you will still be able to play it though), but here... https://pcpartpicker.com/product/vtp323/lg-monitor-27mp36hqb. Its got a nice IPS panel, 60Hz, and a 4ms response time (I have both a 1ms response time and a 5ms response time monitor, there is not much of a difference, I actually prefer the 5ms one just because of the IPS panel). Games such as Asphalt, Minecraft, and other not to graphically demanding games will look great at full 1080 60fps. It even has a VESA 100x100 so if you wanted to wall mount it.
The one concern is, as you many know, a laptop with an i7 and gaming does not equal all day battery life.
Its a hard comment to respond to. Try narrowing down your selection, I posted a similar question but between 2 monitors and got many replies. Do you know what resolution screen or what games you will be playing, watch some bench marks on your card to see what it can run, get interested in a couple of monitors then more people may be able to help you. Generally speaking you can't really go wrong with an LG, Acer, or Asus monitor.
I am primarily a Battlefield player, a few months are my build I will be investing in a second 1080 for further future proofing.
Can I have a link to that wallpaper.
100 USD maybe.
The parts are outdated and any tech savvy person will realize that, non tech savvy people would probably just buy a Mac.
Depends, if you buy the 1070 for 1080p gaming just make sure you have a monitor that's at least 120Hz.
Take out the second 2tb hard drive and with the 60ish dollars put in an SSD.
Generally speaking an X99 build will cost more,
but if your in to development it may be worth it.
The speed of you ram wont make that huge of a difference... I would go with a hybrid of sorts of the 2 lists. I would recommend going with the 6800K over the 6700K, the Phanteks PHTC-14PE cooler, and the 1080. The X99 chip set will help development with those extra cores... have all the cores and the 1080s GDDR5X memory over the 1070s GDDR5 will help with video editing depending on what program you're using. The Phanteks cooler has great performance and is available in different colors, just watch ram clearance. If your just using the SSD only as a boot, then, no you dont need an M.2.
ODESZA - It's Only by far my favorite song... BTW if you love history you love the music video.
Lol, you again.
