Can I have a source?
Haha actually have a dedicated microphone and need it so I don't have electronic interference. (The motherboard audio is kinda crap). And for the profile pic, I should probably get that changed but I am aware that Razer has ****** audio quality which is why I no longer use them. This is for my step brothers build who used some handy-down parts from me and my other step brother. Please refer to this link for the build. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Jnm8TW
What do you have the reservoir mounted to? Maybe wanting to do a custom loop in my s340 in the future once the 1080 ti comes out.
I'm only going to give you +.5 because you only have a 6900k and windows 10 home and not pro. Disgraceful. /s
They're kind of annoying. Mainly with not being detected by my motherboards fan headers but I can live with it.
This particular model does not but does have a back plate.
Couldn't really think of anything else and wanted it posted. If you can think of something better hmu.
I admittedly went a little crazy with it but i'm in love it so it's okay :P
Yeah I was very happy when I found it!
Yeah haha. I'm honestly surprised I haven't seen more on the PCPP. I personally got the 6700k as a placeholder to get the 7700k but it is an awesome deal for sure!
He got it through Intel Retail Edge for the Holiday Deal. 6850k at that price and 6700k for $120
No a lot of the parts are zeroed out on the part list.
Just look on this website and filter 4k, 60hz, and under 5ms response. You will find many monitors that meet the bill for much under 1000$. Maybe not the size but who needs that big of a screen when you are literally within a couple feet of the screen.
Lets hope you don't get your feet wet :P
How is the OS working? Do you think I'd be safe to buy one off of there? I've never heard of the site before haha.
HiFiman HE400s and using Logitech g933
The Kraken is one of the more frequently used CPU coolers on this website. Very trusted, and the problem with going all SSD is that it is very expensive. To have the two TB he has in hard drive would cost upwards of $400 versus $100 for the same size but slower.
I'd probably start with a new motherboard so that you can actually overlook the processor. Or a new case... haha!
Okay I will :P
So you are using the CAM software to change the LED's on the V2? I bought one for my new build and am curious.
Thanks! It was a lot of fun to introduce her to PC!
Haha not planing on it but thank you :)
To be fair the 850 EVO and 1080 were zeroed out since they were from his previous build. Still a great build for the price however.
Yes I did and am very happy with it!
Can you turn them off? What are some of the options?
Is there particular reasoning between the different parts that you listed?
Haha that's great! Seems how it normally works out :P I do recommend this case though. It is pretty easy to work in although my only complaint is that the CPU power cable has no place to go behind the motherboard so you have to route it around the motherboard for it to look good. This can especially a pain if your PSU has shorter cables.
It's getting the job done until we get his old one out of storage :P
Haha that's the funny thing! Until my parts come in his is actually better XD
Why are you selling it and how did you get it?
Haha it's all good I figured :P
The only reason i'd really go with the 6700k would be for the reduced cost but I like to live by "It's better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it" but i'm still not 100% sold.
That's my problem! XD
These are the set ups for either scenario.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Look at my other reply please haha :P and I also will be watercooling either with a Corsair h100i V2
At the moment mostly gaming but I am planning on going into Computer Hardware engineering so some engineering programs later on. I may also begin streaming.
Not quite true. You can easily OC the 6850k to be equal and the fps difference will be within 1-2 fps. Also if he is looking at streaming or doing other CPU intensive tasks then the extra two cores will help.
I agree with the SSD but not with the GPU.
They are very close in some cases but for the most part the 1060 3GB out performs the rx 480 4GB. He also wants shadow play.
Definitely value for money.
Definitely value for money.
Do you think i'd be able to do a setup similar to this but have a HDD for mass storage somewhere in it? I absolutely love watercooled Evolv builds and would love to do one!
EDIT: Also are you using 140mm or 120mm fans? I noticed that the case only supports either 2 360mm rads or 2 280mm rads haha.
Haha it's all good :P
Are you sure that is the M7 in the build? There's no IO shroud in the build picture haha.
How is the Toshiba X300 4TB treating you? I'm running extremely low on storage for my games and was wondering how it stacked up?
How would you guys say the reliability is of them? I've stuck with WD mostly because of their known reliablity and warranty but they are more spendy and kinda loud.
I'll take one off your hands :P
I'm kinda curious about the two AIO's? In the part list you have the h100i listed but in the picture you have a h105 and in another picture you have both? Idek haha
I'm not sure but at the price the 970 is displaying now you could get a 1070 lol
Yeah it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense to me. That 970 cost more then you could get a 1060 6GB for my a decent amount.. Not to mention that that PSU is quite dangerous especially if the client plans on overclocking.. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html
This will we an even more awesome build once you get to water-cooling can't wait to see it!
Yeah I wish I had an i3 or i5 laying around but once she gets more comfortable with PC gaming (it's still really strange to her) upgrading the processor will be a for sure first step.
I do own the processor as well.
