Description

Started with a Ryzen 2600X and ended at a 9700K @ 5.2GHz.

From the time I started building this PC in November 2018, I went through about 8 motherboards, 4 processors and 6 graphic cards. Not really sure why when the only thing I use is notepad to write code..

Anyways, this sucker will absolutely kill it at Minesweeper, I get roughly 10fps (unless afterburner is lying) most of the time.

Included a few pictures before I ended up here..

Part Reviews

CPU

5.2GHz with -2 AVX.. Nope, nothing to complain about..

CPU Cooler

Keeps my 9700K at 5.2GHz nice and wet, I mean cold.. No complaints.

Motherboard

Not sure why I paid this much for a motherboard, but I would pay it again..

Video Card

******* POS. Can't even run CSGO at 100FPS. I will be selling for 2080 ti quad SLI. This is some ********.

Srsly though, get one, probably the best cooled 2080 out there! Bigger than, well, you know, AND IT DOESN'T SAG! +1!

Sweet build, but can it run minesweeper at 1 fps???? You said that it can run minesweeper, but at that high fps.

I use frame targeting to ensure I stay around the 10 FPS range, otherwise I see nothing but stuttering and lag /:

Honestly, after opening it up so many times, I stopped caring about the backside since it's a never ending process (for me) lol.

Understandable, especially considering how good the build looks from the front; most don't see or notice as long as that's the case. Also nice photos :) I really like the lighting on the whole set-up, even though I'm not one for the RGB or lighting craze.

Thank you! I'm not big on RGB either but decided to give the strips a try since it sits right on my desk. I turned the brightness up for the pics but otherwise I keep it relatively dim just to add a little character. Spending $200 on RGB fans however is just insane lol. Some people can make it look cool but I rather get something more important.. To each his own..

Real question is; can it run paint?

  • 12 months ago

Occasionally, if I down clock her to 5.0GHz, I can open paint. But who wants to run paint at 5.0GHz?

Why did you go through all of those parts before you settled on this?

I very much wanted to upgrade to Zen 2, but then I came across some more monies and thought, what can I upgrade TODAY? Sold my AMD hardware and went Intel/Nvidia. Will probably be selling this system at the end of the Year when Zen 2 and new cards have launched.

I'm very indecisive and I love playing with new parts, it's a hobby on it's own (:

But can it run task manager

  • 12 months ago

If I'm lucky I can open the BIOS.. Task manager is out of the question, unfortunately..

I thought the G.Skill Flare X Series RAM was made for AMD microprocessors. This computer had an overclock capable Intel Core i7-9700K. Did this computer experienced any issues with the RAM?

That's basically just a marketing gimmick. Essentially, they advertised compatibility with AMD because B Die RAM runs at its rated speeds easier than non B Die (for Ryzen), but this was specifically only an issue with the first gen Ryzen.. But it works fine for both AMD and Intel..

Thank you for the reply. I think this RAM is cheaper than many RAM modules especially if it comes as a 16 GB kit. I may consider buying it.

B Die is usually more expensive and isn't really necessary unless you're trying to gain as much performance as possible.. B Die speed/timings usually look like this, 3200 c14, 3600 c16/c15, 4266 c18, etc.. 3000 c15, 3200 c16, 3600 c18 are not B Die kits..

But can it (actually) run Crysis

  • 12 months ago

I don't think any system without quad 2080 ti SLI can run Crysis.

It'll run Netflix and Google Chrome at the same time without a hiccup, though.

  • 12 months ago

The minimum GPU requirements for Crysis call for Nvidia’s GeForce 6800GT or an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro and you have an RTX 2080 so you should be good to go :) an RTX 2080 might actually be a bit overkill for it though depending on the resolution you want to run it at

I don't think that build can run crysis 3 as I have seen many builds with 9900k's and 2080 ti's in sli not able to run crysis 3 at 720p 30 fps stable so i'm not too sure about that one chief.

  • 12 months ago

I’m talking about the orginal Crysis, not Crysis 3

;( no need to bully me. But still it will probably hit 1080p 30-40 fps then.

Did you add fans to the front of the radiator of your AIO? Or is it the two fans that it came with? Also, do you have three exhaust fans in total? One on the back and two on top?

  • 11 months ago

I added 2 fans, yes. 2 came with it and 2 I added. All were intake except the rear fan. Check out my new build.. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/ZcsZxr

Why is it that in image 3, it looks like a 14 pin power connector, tripping me out mang.

That was from the previous card I had in there lol, I hid the 2 extra wires below the PSU shroud..

You might be able to run minesweeper at a steady 0.1 fps if you are lucky.
