You spent half of what you paid for your power supply on a fan, good budget build
is it getting enough air?
You motherboard does support that ram speed and I've seen it go higher. Just play around with the overclocks until it works
I like the story and is buying parts off non-Argentinean sites cheaper?
Any reason to downgrade from 3570k to 960? I know it will be fine but as far as I've heard they're starting to show age and if you already had it why downgrade
You may already know but for the future there are reverse cases with the glass on the right side so you can have it on the left facing the right way
Maybe not everyone can afford a nice camera, or even care.
Buy it used, great value for money
1060s did not go up that high, honestly buying used makes the most sense in any situation really
Probably due to the fact that a gt 710 cost $25000 USD because of crypto miners (obviously a joke but seriously)
Well to start, AMD would have been a better buy most likely with the availability and price of Coffee Lake but at least they won't have to upgrade for a while. I assume they had the 980 beforehand or got it used which is why they used it, it performs better or the same than a 1060 anyways
I would have went with the 8600k, 980 is still enough to be able to hold off, and then definitely a better power supply. RAM can be held off on because 8 is fine
It's been proven that air coolers cool the same, and yeah they have to be big but looks are subjective. Also air coolers don't leak and pumps don't fail either, maybe just replace the fan in 5 years
You really don't need a liquid cooler as air coolers that cost the same or less cool the same, just fyi
Why not pay a little more, anyways who pays that much for Windows anymore if you know what I mean.
There is no chance they payed those prices and I 100% they're used parts (which this would be a great 1080p build with good overclocks)
It hasn't passed moderation yet
The gt 1030 isn't bad and you didn't overpay so don't feel bad about your purchase, most would recommend going with a used gpu
No not at all. Buying a used graphics card for the same price usually yields way better performance. Something like a gtx 770 or something.
I really really hope you didn't actually pay $100 for a gt 1030...
Didn't quite catch the reasoning for two 570s?
Nothing wrong with the cooler taking up a third of the open part of the case
It is definitely capable of running games, especially esports at over 100 fps. Just because it's old doesn't mean it's bad
They didn't even overclock
Yes the motherboard cannot be overclocked, but on any Z-70 chipset unlocked processors can be overclocked
Nicehash? Not a good idea xD
You aren't really going to get anywhere trying to mine bitcoin with this, try ethereum. You need Asics for bitcoin
And they would have spent $285 over the original $85 versus $150 or $190
My bad, but still, $50+ for an 8% increase in performance no thank you
Your argument was that they should have bought the 1050ti over the 770 which would make no sense because the performance increase would have been very small for paying twice what they did for the 770 ($85). Also, the scaling of price to performance goes down the higher you go up so you only see the small improvements for $50-100+ when you get to the things like the 1070 and higher. With budget cards the price increase to performance increase is much smaller, except in cases like this where you buy an older, used once mid-high tier card for very cheap
No not really at all, the $50 jump from the 1050ti to the 3gb 1060 is much bigger. $100ish dollar jump from 6gb 1060 to 1070 is a lot bigger also
There is an 8% performance increase for like $50-60 more
I hope you live in Canadia because $215 for a 1050ti is a rip off (1060 3gb are cheaper)
Not that big of a performance bump over the 770, Would recommend 3gb 1060 over the 1050ti
No Vega uses that
They could have their stuff on some form of external drive with the ssd as a boot drive
I'm sorry, with the way your comment originally looked it seemed like you had a few screws loose lol. I thought you meant ram affected how well you can overclock your cpu, and I know the 212 evo isn't a bad cooler but with Intel's latest volcanoes you would want something else
While it is extremely difficult to even understand you, let's try to make some sense here. They probably bought used parts and ended up with a locked cpu with a mobo with overclocking capability. They probably bought the cooler for better cooling, less noise, and better looks. Not like you can overclock that well on the 212 evo anyways. The ram has nothing to with overclocking.... They got pro because they may want the added features or it was cheap. It's also possible they live in a country where finding parts is difficult.
Boot time with that SSD? I have a normal SETA 3 drive and I go from bios to login screen in less than 5 seconds
Just so you know, he can probably play in 1440p with that i3 and 1070 so I'm not sure an upgrade would be absolutely necessary
So we should all put dual 1080tis with a celeron
imo vega is a real let down not only due to pricing and availability but the amount of power it uses, about 300w tdp
No it definitely is
Yes go look at one of your reviews and you will see where the GQ is at (miles ahead of your CXM). See the problem I have is that you think that EVGA will never try to fix whatever this problem is and it will be like that forever. I'm pretty sure they would notice it and fix it anyways, not that I have ever heard anyone having a problem with it in the first place so I'm pretty sure you're blowing up a rare case and making it sound like every single one will explode, not even under heavy load.
I bought the evga 650GQ on release for $62, not under $60 but much better than that thing. Also, that isn't true anyways lol
Actually no I do know about them but I know someone like EVGA wouldn't make a pipebomb...
And I see you use a corsair cxm which is definitely no where near the B3
I don't see much difference
So the G3 is bad?
