Oh. How do you like the one I picked, anyways?
Looks fine dude. As for the CPU it isn't a big issue, you may or may not have to update the BIOS to use it. If you want to be safe either keep the mobo and get an i5-6500 or keep the cpu and get a z270 motherboard. good luck with your build!
Did you paint the cooler because that is one heck of a good looking heatsink
how could it be explained?it's just a gpu, like one from nvidia. it just has different drivers and technologies. however, if you can, a quad core processor can make all the difference. waiting for zen at this pint would be best to save cash, but if you need it now get a i5-6400.
How is that 1070? I've been pondering whether or not to get the FTW over the SC.
Do yourself a favor and buy Overwatch. It is the most fun game I have played I think ever, I have over 80 hours logged, plus they keep updating it. In fact tomorrow is patch day, and in celebration of Chinese New Year they are hosting a week-long in game event.
actually i believe logitech does make a mousepad
later after research
three actually. the g640, the g440, and the g240. go with logitech my dude
Mouse: G502, Headset: G633, Keyboard: G910, Mousepad: G640, Webcam: C920
go with the strafe then. reds arent that loud but silents are just that. just don't get blues cause they are uber loud
Try that one. I know it's a moba mouse but this is the only red mouse i could find with over 5 programmable buttons with drivers excluding l/r click.
But I was just heading to Tashi Station to pick up some power supplies! Said the star wars nerd
+1, inb4 feature
No problem, good luck with your build!
also a bigger ssd could be nice
oh ok. looks good for what you are doing with it, but your gaming ability will be limited.
Yes a 500w PSU would be fine. Also you don't need a z270 motherboard with that processor, you could get something like this to cut costs.
Don't you need a sound card?
Depends what parts you are using. If you can provide a parts list I could answer.
make sure you don't have a framerate cap on. if the game has one, turn it off or turn it to the max setting.
+1 for soldier 76
hey no problem
get 2 8gb sticks of memory, from a reliable brand like crucial, corsair, kingston, or g.skill.
Oh heck better protect all those thermal exhaust ports....we don't want an exploit like the one that occurred at the battle of Yavin
Tell him to ONLY ask for money/amazon gcs/newegg gcs for his birthday. Makes the saving go much quicker. Or, if he can create decent youtube content, he can monetize them with ads and get paid that way.
here you go
the g633 is wired and the g933 is wireless
You could look at the Logitech G6/933s, they have a programmable equalizer so you can hear what you want to hear (crispier highs, punchy mids, pounding bass)
Salazar Studio "Pushing the i5-6600k to 4.8 GHz"
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
I tried to stick with the white theme, and added a sound card for some easy audio adjustments. I would assume you already have good pair of studio monitors so I didn't include that.
and it wont be overclocked so
and it wont be overclocked so
If it isn't going to be overclocked, don't get a K-skew chip! Go with the cheaper i5-7500.
They DON'T NEED a maximus 8 hero. This board is meant for gamers and hardcore overclockers. Get a motherboard with the B150, H150, B250, or H250 chipset, and if you like Asus, get an Asus board. You could REALLY cut down on expenses there.
Based on what type of work your parents will be using this for, I would recommend a lot more storage, so you could either pick up a hard drive or put in a 1 or 2tb ssd. Now THAT would last a while.
Do they really need a massive full tower case with a side panel window? I'm sure there are cheaper and simpler mid tower options.
Since you would go with an i5-7500, you could take out the CM 212 Evo and use the stock cooler. Plus, you don't need thermal compound as basically every cooler nowadays comes with some.
There is no way this thing needs 750 watts. Go with a simple, non-modular EVGA 430w.
If you want to put in a discrete GPU, go for an RX 460 or 1050 Ti at this level. Those should last some time in graphically intensive programs.
I will just put that in there for conveinience.
A requirement of the case was an external drive bay
Thx, now the problem is selling my old 480.....
hope that satisfies everything. lmk if you need a change. as for overwatch, can crush epic settings no problem.
should be fine but techsource has a video on it if you want to check it out
ahh forget it i will just get the ftw
No, there is just green transparent plastic over white led's. Just sand it off.
I've seen builds where they mod the actual drive trays to go the other way. Look up "Enzo the Dragon"
try taking the stickers off and flipping them over and thermal-pasting them back on.
The rest of the Zen guys :
Ok. But we'll be back. With
And a 4 core 8 thread processor that will cost less than a dual core.
dude it looks awesome, love these simple color schemes on the manta case
i7-7700k's Kaby Lake buddies :
i7-7700k : Shut up guys.
i7-7700k : YOU'VE BEEN REPLACED MEME LORD
I want that PC, Daddy!
Well its not like anyone does black/blue builds anymore in my price category, and I know I am the only teen-aged kid to have spent a good long time on cable management
If what they have at the micro center is cheaper than it would be online, buy what is cheaper there then buy the rest at amazon. Usually the price difference at Amazon over newegg is not enough to justify waiting 3 more days, unless it's a Cryorig H7 or it isn't Prime eligible.
So the Seasonic and the Corsair get back from a long night of partying with their friend Logisys.
"Man, that party was LIT."
They also have a red version if blue isn't your thing:
I have this one and it's super comfy, plus it has a footrest and reclines so I'm good for a while.
Well if there is an NCIX or a Micro Center near you that could be easy since they have pretty good sales most of the time, but if you have to order online stick with Amazon and Newegg to ensure speedy shipping.
You probably aren't going to need sleeved SATA cables since most motherboards come with plain black ones anyway. To address your concern about the visibility of the cables, get a cable extension kit from Phanteks. They attach to your current PSU cables and only have the ones that are visible (24pin, GPU, CPU) plus they have cable combs so you can keep them in line.
I want that case now. Do they make it in black?
