CPU Clock Rate


GPU Core Clock Rate


GPU Effective Memory Clock Rate



I wanted a basic machine that can play games and do some light video editing as well as usual home tasks. So far i have no compatibility issues and the PC runs perfectly. I loaded DOOM and runs nice and smooth. I noticed that in general it runs cool (might be the 5 fans) and silent event when i play games.

My only questions are this: 1) why the 6300 when the 6100 is cheaper? 2) why not use 2 sticks of 4gb memory since dual channel configs are faster

Other than that solid price (although i would have not used money on accessories (44$) and gotten a 6500 quadcore)

Not OP but I can answer question 2. In my build, I used 1 stick of 8GB to leave room to upgrade in the future. My Cryorig H5 Ultimate covers one of the RAM slots so if I had 2 sticks of 4GB I wouldn't be able to add more. I actually added another 8GB of RAM (1 stick, now using 2x8GB sticks) to my system to be able to use Photoshop more efficiently.

Yes exactly this. Just one memory stick for now so i can upgrade later.

I get the future upgradeability thing...Just I never get any Mobo without 4 slots and I have an H7 with LPX memory and it all fits fine. Just need to get less fancy low profile ram.

Nice build although an entry level i5 would of served you better for not a lot more. But you've done a good job. +1

+1 nice build......i have question on the fans. How many fan headers on the board?

any pix of the inside would be cool too......

sspil submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Hi. The mobo has three fan connectors (one is for the cpu). If you get a splitter you should be ok. I have 5 fans running without a problem.

How is the noise with that GPU? I have heard that it makes a loud ticking noise

sspil submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

Hi, I am very happy with it. The noise level and temp overall is very low.

the 470 is about 20-30% better than the 1050ti because the 470 is a cut down version of the 480, he made the right choice. (the 470 can do 1440p on medium to high with up to 60fps, tried it myself) Also t he 1050ti is CHEAPER than the 470 so how would it be better for more money? lol

sspil submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

I believe the 470 was very good choice for the money as teh budged was restricted. The 1050 was more expensive and has similar performance.

That's like saying a 750ti was better than the R9 380x not a chance it's different class of card ones budget the other is mid range. The 1060 3gb was a similar level although probably slightly faster.
