Thank you for your reply.
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.
Dat Druff! sticker tho... +1 for everything man, this build is stunning. What is that art piece in the background of your first and second pictures?
That power button is dank. +1
Good, smart part choices. Solid upgrade path. Very clean setup and good job with the cable management. +1
The memes are strong with this one. +1
One of the strangest looking custom loops I've ever seen. +1
I will give you another upvote if you post a picture of this PC on Lego wheels.
Just get some of these dude.
Probably not very portable. +1
I would like to see more picture as well :) +1
Welcome to the community. Solid cable management. +1
I have one word: clean. +1
IDK how I missed this one! This is a fantastic build! Clean cable management and excellent case modding. +1
More pictures please.
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.
Also curious: what do you use the SSD for?
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 always enjoy seeing NAS builds on this site. +1
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?
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?
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?

What a crazy design for a case. +1
I remember my GTX 460, those were the days; simpler times. +1
I swear I saw this build already, guess you re-posted it. So I guess you get +2 from me.
Incredible pictures. +1
Excellent pictures. Very clean. +1
Very creative build despite being in an Enthoo Evolv. :P +1
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.
Couldn't agree more.
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.
Thank you! The 750 Ti would have been my next choice if the 950 wasn't out or not priced well.
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.
After every gaming session, my room gets significantly hotter haha.
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.
No problem, glad you liked it!
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.
