Build

Riley Aurora (Almost finished)

by CR4ZYD3MON

Description

I use this for gaming and editing purposes or any kind of stuff. Also this is my first build and the best CPU I've ever had, it preforms perfectly awesome.

I paid a lot less for this PC, because some components that I bought are used, like the AIO and the Hard Disk, which was practically new. I'm going to make a lot of component updates, especially the PSU, for one with gold certification and completely modular, a more powerful processor like the i5 8600k or the 9600k and finally, the GTX 1070.

I will also buy the coolermaster mastercase h500m next year and obviously, assemble everything in a larger desk.

Part Reviews

CPU

Best CPU I've ever had, probably going to upgrade in the future to a core i5 9600k

CPU Cooler

I've gotten this amazing AIO used for 107 bucks

Motherboard

Excellent motherboard for a powerful budget build.

Case

Very clean and minimalistic case. You can't put vertical GPU on it unless you make a diy hole on it.

Power Supply

Haven't seeen any prolems with this PSU, great for a butget PC.

Monitor

After 6 months the panel broke down, the colors looked very bad, but MSI managed to apply the guarantee and they gave me a new one, I hope it does not happen the same.

Mouse

High class switches!

This is a great looking computer. I'm excited for you to get that 1070 so you can really take advantage of that monitor! :)

CR4ZYD3MON submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks! :)

Maybe should have used the money on the kraken and rgb ram on a better processor

CR4ZYD3MON submitter 1 Build 2 points 6 months ago

I got kraken cooler used very cheap, It almost costs like 100 bucks. I could not refuse that offer.

Can someone please help me part out a computer for me with a $600 budget and like $200 for a monitor and others? So around $800 total.

Parkour123 1 point 6 months ago

Also I am going to upgrade to a core i5 9600k or 8600k.

romanvalkre 4 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Well I like it so +1

Your going to get some stick from folks that see an i3 and a Kraken x62 as a waste... That said, the x62 does look amazing, and if you get a windfall grab an i5 or i7 and make that cooler work for a living:)

Are you recycling parts from an older build? I don't see very many of the Constellation drives, or 80+ White PSU's around anymore.

CR4ZYD3MON submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

In my country there are not much stores where you can buy the best tech in the market also, the PSU was new, but the hard drive was recycled. Also im saving mone for a core i5 9600k

romanvalkre 4 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

No harm in recycling drives.

I think that PSU is the same platform as the 500w EVGA 80+ white, so while not great its NOT dangerous crap either. The big knock against it is (other than older design) is some slightly sketchy caps. don't expect it to last for 10 years, but you should be good for a while.

CR4ZYD3MON submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Of course it is just for while, maybe 3 or 2 years.

CR4ZYD3MON submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Im going to maike upgrades on the PSU, CPU, buy a 1070 etc, the build is barely complete.

dairsensi 0 points 6 months ago

I would have dumped the speakers, headphones, and stand for a better cpu and/or graphics card. Gaming with integrated graphics is really funny. Maybe if you play minecraft or roblox...

CR4ZYD3MON submitter 1 Build 2 points 6 months ago

Speakers was a gift and I have used these headphones for more than a year. I'm saving money for a 1070.

poor value

blizz7 -3 points 6 months ago

1: resolved 2: I have no idea why you didn't get a barracuda 2tb. 3: Why a 144hz monitor with no GPU? 4: resolved 5: Refund that power supply NOW and get at least an 80+ Bronze 6: Mark. Your. PRICES!

IngeniousTinkerer 3 points 6 months ago

If you read the other comments, he said that he is saving for a GTX 1070. If he is saving for a GPU, he's probably planning on upgrading to an i7 later on.

blizz7 -1 points 6 months ago

ok that marks off two, how about the rest?

Phildilf 3 Builds 3 points 6 months ago

"How about the rest?"

Calm down. He doesn't owe you anything.

Have you noticed the psu has no price? Maybe it was left over and he swapped it to this build. Sure, more heat/electricity/noise than a bronze rating, but he's fine for now (especially for not having a gpu).

Also, the hdd isn't really that price. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6CC6KW7182&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC-_-pla-_-Hard+Drives-_-9SIA6CC6KW7182&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIysj6veGS3gIVxiSGCh1avwrfEAQYASABEgJZZfD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

It's cheap. Not sure why you're demanding answers, this is just a friendly "post your builds site". Go to reddit.

IngeniousTinkerer 1 point 6 months ago

He probably can't refund that power supply, and has a 144hz monitor for when he gets his GTX 1070. He may have had the Constellation drive on hand at the time of the build and he's probably marked prices on everything he's paid for. That should resolve all of your questions.

CR4ZYD3MON submitter 1 Build 2 points 6 months ago

In my country prices are out of mind. Dude Im saving money for a gpu, some parts are recycled, I dont have lots of MONEY.

1030 gddr5 is useless with my 144hz monitor, Im just saving all the money I could for the 1070

[comment deleted by staff]
CR4ZYD3MON submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Integrated graphics runs very high presets game at 720p medium settings, also games like LOL, geometry dash, any kind of platform games runs at more than 144fps, wich is good for me now. Otherwise this is the price of the gt 1030 in my country its around 109 us dollars:

Just because it doesn't have a specific rating, doesn't mean it's "bad".

It's just not as good as more expensive models. Hence, why they're more expensive.

He's powering an i3 and no gpu. He's fine.

Just because there are more efficient products, doesn’t mean this is going to spontaneously combust. I don’t care about Johnny Guru or his mother. His psu is fine.
