Description

I'm 15 and I self taught myself on YouTube for around 10 months until I saved up enough money. This PC is meant to dominate the latest and greatest titles. It runs whatever you want at 1080 above 60. The only problem I ran into was the thermal paste. When applying I moved the cpu fan a little to much and well thermal paste was in places in shouldn't be.

Why is it called vanquish? When I wasn't as tech savvy I looked for prebuilt PCs and on digital storm they had a PC that had the same case. Also I'm not creative.

I will answer any questions you below.

Sorry about the camera quality I'm using my phone

I am very excited to join the PC master race

I really appreciate the feedback but I am very confused why everyone hates on cx power supplies. Can they really blow up and fry stuff?

that psu is ok for lower tier rigs. I wouldn't spend 2k on a rig like you did and slap on that psu is all I was saying.

Slap on? It's $100!

lol it's "ok" for what it is. Would I have put that psu on? no. Would I have paid a another $30- $50 more to get a much better psu? yes. You should be ok but I wouldn't have $2k of equipment going through a low tier psu to save a few bucks.

No, he is just talking out of his ***. Its a mediocre unit, not a dangerous one. Plus that is the newer model which iirc hasn't even been reviewed.

am i? that's new. just said he should consider buying a pretty decent psu on a $2k rig. 2 things you never skimp on, your mobo or psu, you should know this. it be different of his build was like $600 or something for him to use a psu like that.

Yes you are and now trying to change what you said when I can clearly see it above.

that's what the hell i said lol stop being a sensitive susan. dont spend 2k on a rig and worry about a cheap psu failing and frying something. is that not what i said? even saying he SHOULD consider a different psu so he wouldn't have to worry.

The CX isn't going to fry anything, not sure why people are spreading this myth around or how it even started.

Thanks for clearing that up. Is that why the lettering are different colors? Where can I find the newer one online?

Yes, that is why its white instead of green and white.

Where can I find the newer one online?

Where ever you brought that one apparently sells them.

"CX-M and CX Series PC power supplies are an excellent choice for basic system builds and desktop PC computer upgrades." Quote from corsair themselves, cx psu's are not for gaming builds.

That all marketing, they work fine for gaming builds, they just want you to buy the most expensive units because that is more money for them.

Its marketing. If Lepa said there F1 series were great for gaming builds would you actually use it? Same goes for Diablotek.

Don't say they work fine for gaming builds because you don't speak for everyone who has purchased one. And also, at the price they charge for their crappy cx series, you can spend a couple extra dollars and get yourself a nice seasonic or evga psu.

So there quality control is so bad that some are going to not work for gaming but some will? I don't see your logic.

You mean mediocre, they aren't crap and once again I am not saying its a good choice.

it probably won't, but should he have that powering his $2k rig? when even a rm650i would even be better frt him without killing his wallet.

I will tell anyone anytime what I told them if they spent that amount of money of a rig. Hopefully by me telling him he might be able to exchange it and get a better psu in time or he would atleast know about it. Every psu has it's place and the cx series is fine for lower tier or basic budget gaming builds. I'm not on every single build with a cx screaming to change his build.

I'll be honest I wouldn't have chose some of these components, but a great first build nonetheless +1 I recommend some cable extensions if you really want to spice things up.

Thanks for your feedback :). Which components and what do you mean by cable extensions?

2x970s seems like a bit much but it might just be me hating that I didn't do it myself. lol. Good build bro. Quality work.

Good start. Overall you did a great job on this. Solid components. You have a top grade gaming machine here. Well done.

980ti > 970 SLI

Buys 970SLI gets a 1080p monitor

Change the PSU in your parts list...

nice first build! I think you should have gotten a fury X or 980TI instead of the dual 970's...a single, more powerful card is typically better than crossfire/SLI (though not always). Regardless, nice build.

Not a good psu for a build of this magnitude, other than that good build.

Dual 970's is major overkill for this rig, you wanna be playing at 1440p!! other wise good build

Thanks a lot by why the r9 390 when the 970 are better and have the GeForce experiences great software

  • 47 months ago

it really depends a lot on what games you are playing and what you want to use the gpu(s) for, but many benchmarks show the 390 ahead of the 970. In the end, if the dual 970s work for you, that's cool, but there ARE many benchmarks out there (synthetic and game specific) showing the 390 being better.

and the software is one place where there's a lot of subjectivity. liking Geforce experience over amds software is perfectly fine though, and vice versa. I can relate to that point.
