3800x is on sale and 20-30 bucks more than 3700x. Worth it? I updated my Bios yesterday with no probs so hopefully either chip will run okay on my b350 Mobo?
did you have any crashes or freezes with your GPU hitting 85+?
Reseated GPU and RAM, no luck. No OC except for one click OC on the Asus software for GPU Gaming mode, which I have now turned off, still no luck
Ya! Thanks a lot for the help. The old power supply was dead I found out. However when I replaced it with the new one maybe I bumped the ram or something. Anyway, problem solved! Feels great! Thanks to everyone
I reseated the RAM and it worked! Everything works now!
New power supply is here, still wont turn on. Now its not even getting power to the mobo. Pretty frustrating, thinking of just giving up and sending it in
Hi Everyone, last update. I MAY HAVE FOUND THE PROBLEM. My Power Supply appears to be DOA. I just tested it using the paper clip method (http://www.overclock.net/t/1228319/how-to-jump-a-corsair-ax850-power-supply-all-the-wires-are-black) and got no response at all. so it appears to be a dead on arrival PSU. I will update this thread when my new PSU arrives in 3 days
So update on this. I brought over a friend who also builds his own PC's. We went through a huge list of trouble shooting, checked all connections and uncontected every piece and tested the system 1 piece at a time. At no point did turn on. So we have narrowed it down to either a bad power supply (DOA) or a bad case power button (DOA). Any advice on how I can find out which one it is?
Same symptoms. Flip PS power switch on, Mobo lights come on but nothing else happens.
Still stuck, consulted my Mobo manual. Just want to confirm I only need PWR SW plugged into the Mobo, along with 8 times and 24 times connection and CPU Fan? Mobo is Asus Strix 350-I AM4
I only have 1 cable from the case a PWR SW. It's plugged into PWR BTN. CPU fan for water cooling is in the CPU fan slot
I tried it both ways POWER SW in PWR BTN and PWR LED
The Pwm header ? The CPU fan for the water CPU cooling block is plugged into the "CPU fan" slot on the Mobo. The PWR SW 2 pin is in the PWR BTN slot
My case only has a female power SW cable built in but my Mobo came with these male cables which I just found and do not see anywhere to plug https://imgur.com/a/KjtEB in
It's a single 8 pin PS cable plugged into the 8 pin Mobo slot (for CPU I think)
Hmmm. Not sure? You mean the little 2 pin PWR SW? I'll look into it
Yes, the 8 pin not 24 pin. If that's what you mean?
Not sure, but I have a 1070 ti plugged in opposite side of the Mobo locked in place with proper 6+2 connectors
https://imgur.com/a/XxtT2 24 pin and 8 pin both plugged in
I have a feeling like something is not plugged in or I've used the wrong plug somewhere.
Sure. It's an Sff build with an sfx-L power supply so things are pretty crammed https://imgur.com/a/wpVTD
Also I noticed a 12V cable from the case not plugged into anything... Picture attached. Also attached picture of the PWR SW plugged in. https://imgur.com/a/vhcpr
I have only one small cable from the case that says PWR SAW so i inserted that where it says PWR on the Mobo. Case is a phanteks evolv shift

Hey guys, so update:
1. It's an 8 pin connector so the size is correct I just made a typo.
2. The power supply appears to be hooked up right? Pics attached.
3. When I turn it on the "power" and RGBs turn on the motherboard, but that's it nothing else happens. Also, the power supply fan does not spin or even appear to turn on (except for the fact it's sending power to the Mobo for those lights).
Everything is brand new, I just put it together
Working on my Shift build right now, looking good man. I might suggest you check out the fairly new Logitech G613. I believe its one of the only legitimate wireless mechanical keyboards out right now. I plan on switching to couch mode sometimes myself for single player stuff. Builds looks nice and great pics. Your temps are nice. I ordered 3 Noctua 140's maybe thats over kill? I see your getting really good temps for this case with your setup
BTW, did you leave the thermal paste on that came with it? If so, is it any good?
Ok great thanks. The shift should be interesting to build in, looking forward to it
How was the EVGA CLC 120? I am doing a Shift build with the same cooler in a few days. Your the only build with one! Any tips?
Cool, well I also ordered some g.skill trident RGB 3000 16gb. It arrives a week later. If I'm unhappy with the with Corsair I'll use the trident and send them back
Ya, I'm just curious how high I can go with a stable OC. I've never overclocked before. Mobo supports up to 3600 speed for ram. Would be nice if I could get these 2666 sticks to 3000+
Thanks again for the replies everyone. Just to clarify this is the product https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820236216
I bought 32gb 2600. I want to overclock higher
Because it's the same model but 2 x 16gb @ 2666 was not a part to choose
Thanks for the reply! The case manual states it supports up to 3, 140 or 120 case fans. So excluding fans installed on the rad itself, you have 2 case fans and 1 empty case fan slot? I see you have one on the side and one up top for exaust. Did you need any extension or splitters for anything? Thanks again very much!
Working on a shift build myself, just ordered 3 of the 140 Noctua black Chromex fans. Thanks for the helpful info you provided regarding setting those up. I have some questions if you find the time. Any further advice with cable splitting, extensions, ect for setting up all this? Why did you order some 140 and some 120 size fans? Should I be ok with 3 140s? Also this is my first water-cooled build and my last build was over 10 years ago. When you say you placed a fan on the AIO radiator do you mean you replaced the stock one on it or added an additional fan directly to it? Thanks in advance PS: Awesome looking build!
I was looking at a similar build myself, I concluded, in my opinion, that if you wanna game on a 4k tv and go beyond a console like experience you need a 1080 ti. It can do it, barely but it can deliver 60 FPS in 4k at highest or near highest settings. It's currently the only card on the market that can. So if that's your goal, plan your build and budget around a 1080 ti. I personally chose a 1070 ti and 1440 monitor to hold me over until next gen cards and HDMI 2.1 TV's are released. For tv gaming I'm just streaming with a steam box on my 1080p tv at the moment.
As for allegations TV's can't produce 120 fps, I wouldn't believe that until someone post some solid benchmarks and supporting evidence from a well know and reliable source.
I don't think you understand what you wrote, "So what do you think about that build? Is it worth? Any parts that I can replace and save couple of bucks?"
What kind of answers would you like?
The main difference is power play compadibility (mouse pad charges your mouse) I have the 403, it's great. I just ordered the 903 (power play version of 900) for my other system.
If your on a budget and want to stream ide suggest you also look at the AMD Ryzen 1700 and 1700x (x if on sale otherwise OC 1700). Check out the benchmarks of it for streaming while gaming vs cost.
Good budget build, if your planning on gaming on it a lot, suggest a 1060 6gb if you can afford it
Great TV choice though, surprised how low the input lag is for a TV. Hopefully HDMI 2.1 will also work on it when released
That is not compatible with a RYZEN CPU, only AM4 socket
as stated "You could dial everything down with that 1080 to try and hit 60, or you could simply run it at 30ish."
Do you need to hit 60 FPS? Really only one proper 4k card IMO thats the 1080 ti. Nothing else can hit 60 FPS in most games in 4k at higher/highest settings. The ti even struggles to do this. You could dial everything down with that 1080 to try and hit 60, or you could simply run it at 30ish. Just my 2 cents, plenty of benchmarks out there though
The same could be said for almost anything if you over-clock it? Also 75 dollars is large price difference. I looked at the benchmarks and it was not worth the performance difference for me personally for 75 dollars. Also this is a SFF case, overclocking will be limited
True, but I chose not to buy the 1080 because I got this 1070 ti 75 dollars cheaper than the 1080 for black Friday and its performance is very similar.
The Evolve shift shipped yesterday and the Asus Mobo should ship tomorrow. Any advice with fans, extension cables, or anything else I might have forgotten? First build in many years. Thanks again for the helpful info. I'll update send you a link when its built
Honestly I don't think there is much difference. I got 3000 because it was 30 bucks cheaper than 3200 for same RAM
