Let me know what you think of my setup for gaming, video editing, Photoshop and a bit of streaming
All load temps were taken after 45 minutes of stress testing
glad to not see any intel cpu's anymore lmao.. anyway great build :)
Awesome theme you got going, very nice. I'm so sorry you had to pay much more for a 1070 though.
There are going to be an *** load of 1070, 1060, 570, and 580s on ebay in a couple months ethereum is already tanking. At current prices it will take 7 months to profit from a 6x 580 mining rig. It's already down less than half of what it was last month.
I hope the coin value continues to drop (preferably at an an accelerating rate) because I am seeing so many people who were excited of building their first builds, which I found pretty sad because they were having to settle with gtx 1050 ti's or lower (ryzen doesn't even seem to be an option). For example I saw one theme build that featured an i7 cpu, 16gb of ram, m.2 with 2tb, high quality asus motherboard (I don't remember what the specs were exactly but you get the idea) and a gtx 1050ti that was a let down to see because the poor guy had their heart set out on something a 1070/580.
Yea super hard to find i was lucky and went hunting around managed to get it for msrp at small shop and it was the last one thank god i didn't want to settle for anything less
I bought a strix 580 before the mining resurgence and my son had my old 480. I put them on ebay just for the heck of it. They both sold @ the buy it now price within minutes. I wanted a 1070 to replace it. But had to buy a 1080 because it was cheaper. And I couldn't find anything reasonable for the kiddo so I had to drive 2 hours to buy a 980ti off Craigslist Mining has killed 1080p gaming for 3 months now. He literally has a 980ti pushing a 1080p 75hz monitor
Well that sucks, the part were you had to drive two hours to get a 980 ti off of craigslist that is.Though I'm glad to hear that your cards sold so easily, just a shame that you had all that money only for there to be no gpu's to buy.
I can relate to selling your graphics cards with all the mining craze going on. I originally had a 1060 6gb, but decided to get a 1070 in April because I wanted to upgrade to a 2k monitor. I was going to sell it with my computer when I decided to build a new one but, like you said; "why not." It was auctioned off instead of "buy it now" (I may have put that option as too high) but when it ended it was close to what I asking for (which was more than I payed for it, when it was brand new).
I got lucky and managed to find a spot that sold it at msrp
Add some led strip behind your desk and turn it red colour. I will love you and your desk will become "PERFECT"
I was thinking the exact same thing going to add some LED strips behind the desk, under the case and inside the case but it might be a bit much. Also going to add a Deepcool Gamer Storm Captain AIO to add some color to the CPU block and hopefully squeeze out some more performance.
Did you have any problems with the chip and mobo?
no not at all this motherboard is excellent i just had to flash it so i could get the most of my ram speeds but it was a breeze to overclock
