ya but i shouldnt have to buuy replacement fans after only a few weeks of having the gpu thats some bull crap know what i mean
bro! is that a jar of moonshine i see sittin on your desk there ? :)
wow wish my sapphire card lights hadnt turned green on me it looks so much better with blue :( hope yours doesnt change but ive looked into it and it does seem to be a problem after some time they tend to change to a greenish color. mine changed almost immediately but others are luckier and it takes a few months
bet..thx for the reply :)
duude! if the computer i want to upgrade to was made real this is what it'd look like for sure only difference would be a r7 1700x or the r7 2700x but still this what'd look like. loove it you did a very nice build
dude your cable management is NOT ON POINT :( susch a shame could of had a really sexy build there, those fractal design cases should be equiped with really good cable management options.
damn bro nice! 480 for a 1080ti msi gaming x very nice and congrats on your build :)
o and that color scheme is pretty sweet too
i really like the rgb set and the silver non rgb set too. but the ripjaws 4 series was blue and at the time i beleive it was cheaper too so i went with those instead. next build be getting the rgb tridents for sure lol
ya totally..the more the merrier:) picking up two more sticks in a week or two myself, will give me 16gb's so cant wait for that :)
crucial ballistix ram is just fine what he needs is faster ram to boost the performance he can get out that ryzen cpu. i also have the ryzen 5 1600 and 3000mhz seems to be the sweet spot for that chip. ive overclocked my gskill ripjaw 4 series 3000mhz cl15 ram to 3200mhz and only seen about 2 more points increased performance in cinebench so i just dropped it back to 3000mhz cl15 and let it do its thing. so point being your ram is fine bro but if you can overclock any higher id recommend doing so. ryzen chips love fast ram :)
hey man did you get your mobo/drives sorted out yet?
i would not get that motherboard though, its not a very good board at all especially for overclocking a ryzen 2nd gen processor. also at that price point you might as well get the evga supernova g3 80+ gold certified psu. last i looked the 550/650 watt versions were going for 69.99. prolly get the 750w for 79.99 which isnt bad considering its fully modular and evga's newest model. last thing is the cpu cooler, at 84.99 i'd go ahead and look into getting a liquid aio. personally picked up the corsair h100i v2 liquid aio on sale for 95.99 on sale at best buy (normally priced around $105-$110usd) about two months ago and it's great. it keeps my ryzen 5 1600 nice and cool around 65-68 celcius at full load under prime95 with a 3.9ghz overclock usining approximately 1.39volts. idk how the be quiet air cooler performs but it could be worth looking into your options before buying it though, 85 dollars is alot of money. good luck on your builds.
update: also the ryzen 7 1700 is priced around 200 dollars which is 80 dollars cheaper then the 2nd gen r7 2700 and they're not that much different then each other. think the 2700 overclocks maybe 100-200ghz faster then the r7 1700 and that depends how lucky you are in the silicon lottery. you could get a chip that only oc's to 4.0 which is basically what the r7 1700 does so you could get the r7 1700 and use the other 70-80 dollars to get a better motherboard.
ya i cant wait to get me one man. i got a 75hz freesync monitor overclocked to 83hz so should be pretty sweet :)
bro i got a ryzen 5 1600 with a 1050ti 4gb and with only the shadows turned to medium i get 100+frames so no you dont need the 6gb card if thats all your going to be doing. the 3gb would serve you damn near just as well as the 6gb card anyway just without the future proofing of the higher vram but no worries there for you unless something comes out in the future that needs that and also sparks your interest. entirely up to you if it was me id prolly go ahead an get the 6gb but if all i had was enough cash for 3gb i def get it.
did you get your drivers sorted out??
whatsa up nice build man.. first thing i have that same monitor but mine is the white version and its great no funky pic with mine at all i absolutely love it man, played with the settings just a bit though but still even out of the box it was pretty nice pic. 2nd thing def get an aftremarket cooler, you say it wont do much but i think your wrong from what ive heard those intel stock coolers are crappy as fk. you can get a deepcool gammax for like 24 dollars and the rgb's on it would look great in your case :) and should be perfect for an i5 or if your mnot into rgb's a coolermaster 212 evo is cheap and you can absolutely not go wrojng picking one up. anyways gfood luck brother enjoy that beauty an take care.
edit... just noticed you was rocking the i5 8400 so ya since you cant overclock that chip you are right a new air cooler wont help that much although it would still help get you a few degrees cooler cpu but not that big of a deal tbh if your not going to be overclocking. intels fan should atleast keep that chip below its boiling point i would hope so as long as your chips not cooking you can leaving the stock fan but it would make it look alot sexier if you swapped it out. entirely up to you though so long as your chip is running at a decent temp. if its getting too hot for your comfort then def switch it out.
o ya bro if you have another 50 bucks to throw down and can find a 1080 then ya def go for it. but if $1200-1250 is your budget then this a very good build. an ya sure you could cut donw on a few of the parts to squeeze in the 1080 too. honestly though getting a 2nd gen ryzen i wouldnt get anything other then an x470 and that looks to be about bottom dollar for a good board. you could cut out the ssd card to afford that 1080 but i wouldn't do that either. ya sure your game play will be a little bit better but that ssd is gonna give your system an all around nice performance boost that i personally would not compromise on for a few more frames but gaming is about half of my pc life so idk maybe you yourself would be happy with that trade off. all in all though this is a nice build, just wish i could of got something more like this back in february but o well.
btw congratulations on the feature spot, very cool.
nice build man, super clean and very sweet looking. was looking at getting this case for an htpc/controller based gaming unit for the living room(something to watch movies on and a decent gaming rig so my wife and son will leave my rig alone :) lol) anyway i thought the case looked pretty sweet but i was unsure about building in it but after seeing this im sold on it. you did an amazing job and at the same time helped me make up my mind for my next case :)
nice build +1 for sure :)
great name man and awesome looking build i really like it and i love that motherboard. i just wish they had one with a similar color scheme for my ryzen 5 1600 but o well :( looks great in your build tho :) +1 from me all day bro!
congrats on your build man looks really good and i hope your enjoying it. one thing tho you did say that you got the 1060 3gb cause itd be good for a year and youd prolly be upgrading that in a year or so well since your already planning on upgrading in a year or so i kinda wish you had just got the 1050ti and a ryzen 5 1600. not to be critical or anytyhing if your happy with what you built bro thats all that matters and im happy for you either way but i myself own a 1050ti and ryzen 5 1600 and its amzing man idk about the 3 1200 but my 5 1600 is an absolute beast and i doubt ill be upgrading my cpu for quite a few years atleast. 6cores/12threads for multitasking and productivity o ya and the gaming on this msi 1050ti oc 4gt graphics card which by the way is one of the cheapest 1050ti's you can get and that said the perforamce is actually pretty darn good. now i cant really sync my 75mhz/84mhz with an overclock monitor but thats fine with me i been playing doom, runescape3, fortnite, battlefield1, etc and evberythings been on high or ultra with some high fps. 80+ on doom, rs3 80-100, fortnite, i can get i think around 120 with one or 2 settings on mid like the shadows which i dont really need to shoot ppl lol. now battlefield1 i actually havent looked at my fps yet cause i just got the game an havent played it much and i have heard that game is really tough on a system so idk but the gameplay i have done was enjoyable and smooth and it looked really good to my noob eyes lol. anyways sorry so long i truely hope you enjoy your new build and it does look pretty sweet man just my opinin on the cpu but like i said only your happiness matters just something i would of done for better future proofing so as to not have to upgrade the cpu anytime soon but ya have fun gaming and take care :)
ya keep the back top fan as exhaust cause hot air rises for one so by making atleast one fan in the top of the case and exhause it will help to maximize the expulsion of all that hot air. you might already know that by now just something ive learned along the way and thought id let ya know. if your anything like me since building my first gaming pc i just been trying to learn as much about this stuff as i can. could almost say im a tech junky now lol least thats what my wife would say :)
wow its very refreshing to actually see some politeness in the gaming/pc community. tbh i feel like i dont see that enough usually alot of arguing and rudeness when talking about builds and components and what should of been or should not of been. its crazy sometimes but ya i just had to throw you guys a couple of likes and put that out there.. well done and very nice to see this:) take care both of you and good luck with your future endevours :)
actually hes using a 74hz monitor:) just saying he did say that he clocked it to 74mhz and besides that it actually would of helped i think because he would of experienced better lows with a better cpu and there fore would of had a all around smoother gaming experience. cause his system wouldnt be dropping off as hard.. now i could be wrong and it really wouldnt surprise me about that cause i am still very new to pc gaming myslef, actually only been in the game for about 2 months now but from what ive learned so far, i believe that statement to be true. although it prolly could of been worded better im sure :)
sweet build grats on the wedding and grats on the build :) just built my first pc about 2months back and yet i cant stay away from this site and the reason is because of builds like yours. i love getting on here and seeing ppls imaginations come to life with these builds and yours is def one of em it looks pretty sweet man. i too am a fan of the white set up got me a white pc case with a white curved 75mhz acer monitor now i just need a white mouse and keyboard and ill be set lol:) anyways i was going to comment about the gpu being on the bottom till i seen that this guy had already brought it up and so i was just wondering if you had tried out the different slots yet and if you had discovered any difference in performance or not? i have the asus b350 f gaming board myself and i tried out the middle slot and i didnt really notice a difference myslef but and idk if this is true about the x370 boards or not but i believe the top slot is pcie 16, the middle is pcie 8 and the bottom is pcie 4 but i could be mistaken about that. so anyways just curious if you tried it out or not :) take care and congrats again enjoy your sweet setup man theres really nothing like building your own gaming rig and then enjoying it, its amazing :)
hey bro read thru a cpl of comments and seen your answer for where the backplate came from so no need to answer that question lol take care man
WOW!!! how did you get that backplate made? ive got some ideas of my own but other then google i have no idea where to get started especisally for something like that. btw that wolf... dayyymn! as a hug fan of wolves i am in love your backplate man it looks killer bro. congrats on that tubing work too. it looks very good imho. love your build and thanks for sharing it with us.

hey did you ever drop a window on that build man? would love to see some updated pics if you did :) reguardless tho this is frikkin awesome man +1 all the way.
lmao one of the best comments imo :)
wow that would be pretty awesome wow :)
ahh i see it man tyty.. take care
actually i think were good i have the latest drivers and i just updated the newest bios last night for the mobo so all good there and i went in an set the d.o.c.p. profile which automaticall set everything to the desired specs for the ram the cas latency, voltage, and it set it to ddr4 3000mhz. so i was either wrong about not being compatible or the newest bios update fixed that for me cause before 3000mhz wasnt even on the list as an option to manually set it to and now it is. so everythings set and running an updated so i think im good to go now. thanks for all the info an help really appreciate it. o i also tried to oc the cpu i got it up to 3500mhz but when i ran my prime95 test the temp shot up to 82 soon as i seen that i shut it off and went and reset it to 3200mhz. im not gonna oc the cpu again till i upgrade my cooling system. thanks again take care.
+1 for that sweet *** 1080ti you got there lmao very niice :)
hey nice very nice computer man heard those 6700k's are very good..also i was wondering if you could tell me what desk that is? mine was broke in a recent move and im currently using this old piece of a writing desk and i really like the layout of yours. if you cant remember/dont know its all good man.. again nice computer tho take care :)
k so i did the bios update and everything went well except my ram is still clocked at 2133mhz. i saw several postings fom others that when they did there bios update there ram speed aoutomatically went up to the closest speed there ram was suppose to be running. so something i didnt notice about my mobo is that it doesnt support 3000mhz ram it does 2933mhz and 3200mhz but not 3k and thats what i got but it should of went up to 2933mhz atleast without me manually setting to that speed right? or do i have to have to do it manually? could of sworn the posts i saw they said it did it on theres auto tho.
right on man tyvm im gonna give it a go now so hopefully ill be back in a few to let ya know it worked out :)
well can you help me with something then? im a little confused as to how to put it on a driver. i downloaded the newest bios and went and extracted it onto the usb as the guides and what noit online say to do so now all i do is just go into bios and load it up right? or is there something else i need to do with the usb first? i dont entirely understand the zipped files stuff and it kinda confused me a bit which is another reason i havent done the update yet. just wondering if you could explain how to properly put it on a usb and load it up cause you kinda seem like you know what your talking about. if you dont weanna break it all down thats fine i thank you for all your previous input o an did go and redo some of my reviews your right it did look pretty rough especially without periods and being so damn long:)
updating isnt risky? ive seen tons of articles online saying that if you loose power during the update, if your updating with a usb or if you loose internet connection, if your updating over the internet, that your motherboard could become bricked. might be minimal risk but still it took me awhile to be able to afford this stuff i dont want to risk damaging it if i dont have to. also ive looked into the issues with the motherboard and it seems that these problems have been going on for some time, at least a year if not longer. also my mobo bios is up to date as of nov 2017 but there is an update as of i think it was sometime in feb but that said the ppl with the same problems a year back havent had any luck so why should i risk my mobo when bios updates havent helped them. so why would i think that it would help me? tbh tho when and if i figure this out itll prolly make me smack my for head like wow it was really that simple at which time i will change my review. in the meantime tho it is a problem and from the research ive done about it its not just me. sorry i didnt use periods ill revamp my comments soon to fix that. i honestly didnt realize itd be a problem. ty for your honesty and take care.
hey man fyi i was wrong about the fortnite fps on 1080p im getting 80fps with everything set on high and that with the games recommended settings screw that i tweaked it a bit and i can actually get around 120fps with some minor modifications hell just setting the shadow effects to medium boosted it up to 100fps also atm idk if it affects the game play but i also have my web browser open with 5 pages up but idk if that affects the game or not also 2 monitors of course:) hope this helps ya out just wanted to correct my earlier statement of 60fps cause thsat was with vsync turned on and my monitor was turned down to 60mhz so the fps was set to mirror that now my monitor is on 75mhz which is standard speed for this one and vsync is off so def better fps then what o told you earlier anyways take care later
def good choice looks super sleek and just fresh looking compared to that big fan cooler(cryorig i think) sorry dont have it pulled up atm now that said the c ryorig pics dont look bad at all thats def a pretty nice looking cooler and i actually like how the fan was facing outside the case but that watercooler look...wow very nice i just wish i could afford one for mine lol also ty for your other replies about the logos and the desk appreciate brother +1 +1 :)
also whats that desk called? im looking for one for my new build and i really like yours ands i think itd be big enough for my setup..if you dont know its all good my man but whered you get that ryzen sticker mine only came with a stamp sized little thing that even if i put somewhere youd have to squint to see lol
beautiful build i really like the watercooler it looks amazing and really brings your build together imo a good choice to swap the cryorig out..def a +1 from me:)
yw bro good luck to ya an take care
k so I downloaded fortnite and was getting 60fps and also on paragon I was getting almost 80fps and runescape3 if you know anything about it I can get 75fps on ultra
