I know I'm tardy to the party on this one. Great build btw +1. But I was wondering how well that RAM works with Ryzen and that Mobo. Were there any problems? Were you able to get the kit to 3000mHz? Did you overclock the RAM at all? Thank you in advance.

Oh that's dope. Yeah I was amazed by the perfect fit on the ODD; I assumed you cut it to fit the size.

Wow, thanks for the advice. I did not know this. Just when I thought I was ready, looks like I'll be doing more research haha.

Thanks again!

Thank you for the insight! Yeah looks like you got a great deal on it. I like the sound of the USB feature, do you know if FreeNAS would be compatible?

I will actually be building my first today! Very similar parts as yours: parts list

How do you like the UPS? I've been thinking about getting one for my NAS once it's up and running.

Awesome, thanks for the reply. The Scythe's prob don't sound much different with or without the heat sink. Are the fans touching the GPU? or do you have a spacer or something in between? or do they not touch at all? Thank again.

Awesome, thanks for the quick reply. 85C is usually the normal max for the 290X, after that it will start throttling. So as you can imagine gaming at 95C would be hell. Thanks for the info on the Noctua fans. I will probably end up picking some up soon. Do you have some kind of spacer between the GPU and fans, or does it naturally sit 2mm away? Thanks again.

Saw your comment on this build: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/HYHhP6 As a fellow Node 202 owner, I have some questions maybe you could help me with: How do you like those Noctua fans? I have a 290X in my Node 202, and the GPU goes into core melt down under load (~95C). Recently bought some Scythe Slipstreams, which work really well. Now the GPU sits around 70C under load. But they are incredibly loud, almost unbearable without headphones. The main reason I bought the Slipstreams is because they are super thin fans, and I was worried that full sized fans would sit too close to the GPU and actually restrict airflow. The Slipstreams also protrude out a bit towards the outside of the case so they rub on the dust filter, so I had to move the dust filter to the outside of the case. Do the Noctua fans rub on the dust filter at all? Also how's the noise? I'd greatly appreciate any input on this. Thanks in advance

I don't actually know if there are any AM4 ITX boards out there, but I up voted you just for having the one exception, being a Biostar board, grayed out; hilarious.

Would you say that these Noctua's are noticeably quieter than the Scythe's?

I have a very similar build as yours, and I have one question: how do you like those fans? I have a 290X in my Node 202, and the GPU goes into core melt down under load (~95C). Recently bought some Scythe Slipstreams, which helped a lot. Now the GPU sits around 70C under load. But they are incredibly loud, almost unbearable without headphones. My main concern with buying full size fans is that they will sit too close the GPU and restrict airflow. I'd greatly appreciate any input on this. Thanks in advance.

Very detailed and clear pictures. The way you took these pictures and arranged them does a very good job of telling the story of this build; well done.

I agree, this setup gives the OP a great upgrade path, and already having the 1070 allows him/her to switch this build to dedicated gaming rig whenever he/she's ready (that's if he/she ever does or wants to). I'd say it was pretty smart decision. +1

I had similar response on one of my completed builds that featured a G3258 paired with SLI 660's. And even though I explained my reasoning for my part choices people still gave me crap for having a bottleneck.

Yeah the fans looked really nice in the video, and, like you said, they are price way better than the Thermaltake Riing and NZXT Aer fans. And I will make sure to check out that give away!

Oh my lord that case is sexy! And it goes so well with those fans! How do you like those fans btw? I have never heard of Jonsbo before.

Yeah, I agree with this. Something to keep in mind: the Kabylake Pentiums are hyper threaded (or at least some of them are), and they give a solid upgrade path.

Thank you; it proved to be quite the challenge fitting everything in his budget, but it worked out.

Fortunately, the owner still plays the same games, so a year later has no desire to upgrade... yet.

Well, unfortunately, I don't have access to this rig, as it is not mine, but I do know that it is capable of playing Minecraft. I can't really speak for the mods however, but I do know that the owner uses Optifine, a lite shader pack, and a texture pack. I can't really speak for FRAPS either, as the only recording software used on this computer has been OBS. Although, he has only recorded CS:GO game play, not Minecraft.

Since I can't speak for the exact situation that you described, I wouldn't entirely take my word for it, but Minecraft (especially with "huge" modpacks) and any recording software are going to be, generally, very CPU intensive. The 860k is a great CPU for its price but it may struggle doing what you described. I think you would be better of with at least an i3.

I completely agree, but as @leoladoudou said, the GTX 1050 was not out yet.
