if you dont mind me asking what do you use this system for? like work or are you a content creator or something along those lines? im intrigued by the fact that you are running a 500$ processor and using the integrated gpu.
They are actually doing very well, I was daring and got the latest drivers which I think weren't entirely stable. My pc has only crashed one time but that was completely user error, It had nothing to do with the drivers or hardware. Instead I get some small color glitches when watching youtube or something but I can live with it.
Also if anyone is wondering, i put the ROG sticker on my cooler because i installed it up side down so the cooler master logo was wrong. it was just bothering me so i used a sticker that came with the motherboard.
man, what a beautiful build. I love when people do low end builds and make them look better than high end pcs
Okay, thanks for the warning man
I would have gone for the 5700xt but I was feeling a little bit cheap the day that I ordered my gpu. But thank you!
I mean a moderator approved it so I think I’m good. :)
im too scared to do a watercooled build, but if i ever get around to it then i probably will use that EKWB stuff it sounds nice.
10k man what a legend, there's no way I could ever afford this
it sure is beautiful and I guess dust really isn't a problem in a "case" like this
you did an amazing job with the cable management, especially without the shroud. If you do it right (like how you did) i think it adds a whole new beauty because #1 it shows off another core component and #2 it shows that the person didnt just cram all the extra cables into the psu shroud. I recently built my first pc (im 12 turn 13 in 12 days as of writing this my goal was to do it before i was 13) and i wish i was able to carry out this amount of love for it that you seemed to have put in. all around tho i think this is one of my favorite builds ever. it isnt one of those "i9 9900k rtx 2080Ti in NVlink" it is just beautiful
i think this should have been the featured build.
what a beauty, i imagine this has a good chance to be featured
to be honest it is ugly but it doesn't look bad, kinda like modern art in a sense. Ive been thinking about it and really it has a certain beauty because everything else is always super perfect and this is different.
this thing is awesome, lemme say that but. that has gotta be the ugliest tubing ive ever seen, its awesome
yeah, im not sure of they will give you the money but they will give you new versions of the items. So you can have fun building it again :)
i LOVE that you got custom sleved cabels but you cant see into the case. +1
okay, thank you. I understand why they wouldn't want these types of keys being advertised on their website
you will be fine, the total power draw is 334 watts which is plenty under 550
id just throw in a different motherboard
You tried to reseat your ram but remove one stick and try to boot and if nothing still put it back in and try the other. your ram may be faulty but theres a very small chance you got 2 faulty sticks. Your cpu may be bad but the only way to test is if you have another cpu for the am4 socket. (if you want to try it you should buy something really cheap like an athlon 200ge just to test [athlon 200ge comes with integrated graphics also so no need to worry about a gpu]) but other than that you could have a faulty motherboard. The storage should be fine unless you got a faulty hdd and a faulty ssd
It will do decently, you can play all games at 1080p low
it should be fine, you can change the power supply if you would like but as long as you arent hitting like 540 watts on a 550 watt psu you should be okay. I would highly reccomend spending the extra 20ish bucks incase something does happen (which can fry your 1500$ system)
I dont believe it says when it was posted but this is the most up-to-date version. As soon as the next generation of products is released there will be a new list.
The fastest ram this motherboard will support is 2666 and this kit is 3200, the pc will work but the bottle neck is 83%! that is insane so id buy a slower ram kit because it is a waste of money to get the 3200 kit.
im dying lol
if anything this is a little overkill for XPlane, it does much better than the recommended specs for XPlane.
you are correct. This motherboard does not include wifi. you can buy a pcie adapter or a usb adapter to fix that problem. I recommend ethernet tho, it provides a faster, more stable, and more secure connection.
this ram will be running at 2666 instead of 3200 so you are correct. it is kind of a rip off because you can buy 2666 ram. i would buy cheaper ram unless you are buying a different motherboard in the future or want to you use it in a different pc eventually.
Yes the H100i is adequate for this build but i would just go with the h150i unless youre trying to save a bit of money or you are chosing a different case that doesnt support the 360mm radiator.
i agree BUT the i9-9900k is more than enough for streaming and gaming (i would expect it out of a 500$ cpu). The only time Ryzen is worth it just for streaming is at the low and medium end such as the 3600 vs the 9600k
this has everything you need except the Operating System which can be found at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/windows-10-home/d76qx4bznwk4?activetab=pivot%3aoverviewtab
i imagine there will be a 3900x/3950x build soon, you can be patient and wait for it or you can use the one i just threw together for you. it is pretty much the same with corsair (instead of OLOy) ram. and a different m.2 ssd.
It is more expensive due to a few small things but in my opinion it is worth it for the 12 cores and 24 threads and all that good stuff
I pretty much guarantee the fans will reach, so i would just move the radiator and fans and then rotate the block. PLEASE remember to apply new thermal paste because the stuff you applied (or pre-applied) will not work again.
it will work because your motherboard will default it to the closest ram speed. This motherbaord supports 2666MHz as the fastest speed but the ram is 3200MHz so it defaults to 2666MHz. (the ram will not default up, say if you have 2200MHz ram but your motherboard only has 3000MHz, that wont work).
youre joking right? this pc includes the best cpu you can buy (according to user benchmark) and the best gpu for gaming unless you are willing to spend more than double (2500$ for the RTX titan, WHICH is only 7% faster). I mean unless you were playing assassins creed odysey at 8k ultra on 2 8k displays i dont know what your problem is. What you did is you plugged your display port into your motherboard which means youre using your intel uhd integrated graphics. You essentially wasted 1100$ on that mistake man. i hope you didnt refund your stuff as it was just a user error and can be fixed in 10 seconds. The other thing is you may not have instaled your drivers which means that your gpu runs in "2d mode" its basically useless in games until you get drivers.
it means the first sata port on your motherboard will be disabled. Its not that big of a deal as you can just use one of the remaining 5 sata ports.
again, i agree. the 2600 is the much better option than the 3200g. the 2600 is 36$ more, i mean that is probably one of the best deals i have even been offered. a 2400MHz kit from corsair is identical price of a 3200MHz so right now there is no reason to go for a low speed of ram. Of course a lot of these probems can be solved by buying used but whatever i guess... I have never built a pc at this price point so chances are you know way more than me, im just using my mid-range to high-range pc knowledge with a different view.
yeah, i agree. Im just saying that if you can fork it out its probably worth it.
You are correct, just gonna put that out there. (1) i am not currently using an AMD card so i don't know the current state of their drivers (i was just using my past knowledge). (2) "tons" of power was an exaggeration but it still does use more power than a 2060 super (225 watts for the 5700xt, and 175 for the 2060 super) it is a 50 watt difference (nearly a 30% increase in power draw). the question was why don't they add a 5700xt, they only really good option for custom 5700xt cards are in high demand which means they will cost more money which puts them over the price of the 2060 super and since they are high demand they are hard to find because everyone wants one. I love AMD's processors but im just saying if you want to do a 5700(xt) build i would wait for the prices to even out. If you have the money and the headroom for the tdp i would go for one. I was just trying to tell people why they had a 2060 super instead of a 5700xt.
yes, but i would HIGHLY recommend going with 3200MHz ram for the ryzen 3000 processors. Ryzen chips will not perform (i don't want to say they wont work well) they just wont work at their full capabilities with such a slow ram speed.
if you are okay with ethernet then all motherboards have that but if you are set on wifi, then you will need a wifi adapter in the form of a pcie wifi adapter or usb adapter, both will work
Bitwit has a very useful video titled "How to Build a PC! Step-by-Step" in my opinion the best guide on youtube. then after you build it and you need to install your operating system and your drivers you can go to the Paul's Hardware video, "First 5 Things to Do with a New PC Build". that should leave you to install all the programs you use personally or for your job and any games you play (scene as you are buying a 1200$ graphics card you will be playing some sort of video game). After that you are all set and you can start using your new pc, as, well a pc. Goodluck!
i completely agree, if you have the extra $$$ and it completes the look, go for it. Eventually i want to build a pc with a sort of like "go for what will look good" sort of vibe behind it. It will be a high end pc with things like rgb ram and rgb fans. i would like to experience the whole "fits my every expectation" feeling. but if you are not in that situation...
that makes a lot of sense, my pc has 16 gigs of corsair vengance. the options were:
No rgb but 3200MHz speed
rgb but only 3000MHz
it was a no brainer to get the 3200 ram
looks arent worth that much for me, im more of a function over from guy. but if thats your thing then go for it.
my bad, i didnt realise you guys were so against it. can you explain to me why it violates, it is just a key being resold or am i missing something? sorry for wasting your time if its a stupid question
2666 will work for intel but you will be able to squeeze out more frames from faster ram (you can overclock your ram if you are comfortable) but if you are going with ryzen 1000-2000 go with at least 3000MHz ram and for ryzen 3000 i would recommend 3200MHz ram. it makes much more of a difference on ryzen than on intel.
that would definitely be one of the better options for the 5700xt, if you have the extra money and then room for the extra power consumption i would go for it.
