Whatchu mean hard to install cables for external SSD? Remove SSD cage -> install SSD -> pull cables through hole and attach -> reinstall SSD cage and stuff cables back through hole.

"I actually don't like the color red, but after I completed it, I fell in love with it"

Don't worry lol, that's like everyone who has ever built a custom PC. Everyone has a black/red build early in their career ;) me included.

Did you run your GPU with the stock cooler for a while? Can you compare the temps between stock and the aftermarket cooler?

This build makes me happy. Thanks for the background info and the build write-up! I think you did the right thing until you're planning to upgrade to an i7 8700k type system. This thing will game way better than the new build you had planned on making!

I also had a Dell that was this form factor and crammed an MSI 1060 Gaming (big card) in there, it was pretty funny seeing it in that case but I was so hyped.

I'm looking at the case and you may be able to mod in a 120mm fan near the front, above the hard drive cage. Worth looking into so you can get your GPU some more air. Rock on!

That card would do fine in CS:GO and Overwatch on low settings at 1080p.

So far so good with this combo. CPU seems to be able to deliver the frames the GPU is asking for. In the future I'll optimize everything and probably end up with an unlocked Intel CPU, but so far there isn't a real need to!

On and off I have yes. Sometimes it'll work for a month or so and then crash while gaming, like on Overwatch or PUBG. I had to lower it to 2866 or whatever and it seems stable now.

"...MUCH larger than I thought it'd be... no room for cable management..." lol wut?

I am the first, but surely not the last to cringe at the cable spaghetti fest going on here.

AhodShralpy 9 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Wait wut lol... $80 for each 500GB HDD? What world are you living in? You can almost get a 500GB SSD for that much I'm pretty sure.

doin' god's work. spreading the love of the PC. there are probably quit a few systems out there that you've put together at this point!

AhodShralpy 9 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

I just saw this, nice build! I have a T3500 at work that I've modded a little bit so I can game on it. Not a bad platform at all! It's in my completed builds if you want to check it out.

My favorite part is how the drives are mounted. I give it a tape/10!

I dunno man I think that RAM is a bottleneck for your power supply. Might want to look into that.

OH MAMA this is what I've been waiting for since the new GPUs came out. Someone gotta do it to 'em!

AhodShralpy's Completed Build: Main Bae PC V3

AhodShralpy submitter 9 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Up to you and your budget really! They'll both work with the GPU. The 2600X can probably hit a little higher on the core frequency, whereas the 2700 has more cores and is a tad slower. The 2600X is "better" for serving up high frame rates, but they're so close that it's really about budget I think.

Full_Grizzly's Completed Build: Mini RTX Build

AhodShralpy 9 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Cool that you already got the waterblock for the RTX. I didn't think they were available yet... better get moving on buying my cooling parts I guess!

Cool build my dude, looks great for the price point!

Plunder's Completed Build: 4790K/RTX 2080 refresh

AhodShralpy 9 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Some people are actually interested in having ray tracing in their game btw. May be similar performance in traditional gaming to 1080 Ti, but there's no substituting the new features (RTX/DLSS). It's not just a 1080 Ti with a new cooler on it, and if you want those features then there's 3 cards to choose right now, 2 if you want to order today.

I just looked this keyboard up lol, no wonder it's so expensive: "Each key is a stand-alone display that shows the function currently assigned to it."

A full keyboard of little displays.

AhodShralpy's Completed Build: Main Bae PC V3

AhodShralpy submitter 9 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

I don't think so man, 6 cores at 3.95 GHz. I'm using a 1440p high refresh monitor as well. It can get to 99% utilization on the GPU in benchmarks.

Yes she is! We met up on our first date to ride mountain bikes, and then I saw her Fallout tattoo and was like. "no way... she games?!". Good stuff.

I am confused. Is this SLI GPUs and CPU water cooled with one slim 120mm radiator?

littletoke76's Completed Build: Budget Ebay build

AhodShralpy 9 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

You got a working 1060 6GB for $138.00?

That's pretty crazy, most of them are selling for closer to $190-200 used.

Justinbuilds's Completed Build: PC Desk Build

AhodShralpy 9 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Most Intel and AMD processors come with CPU coolers. It's only the really power hungry or unlocked chips that don't.

medwa4's Completed Build: "Mini Me" - NZXT H200 Build

AhodShralpy 9 Builds -1 points 2 months ago

Lol wut. So you didn't just measure your case vs. this one and the space you have available? Instead you ordered all the parts, had them shipped all over, built the PC and then repackaged everything and sent it back and now those parts are "open box"?

Sounds pretty wasteful to me.

250GB SSD would be a great addition to this build. Nice and clean looking, and I like the extra fan on the Noctua cooler!

MineMineMelon's Completed Build: A Blast from the Past

AhodShralpy 9 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Nice build! The old DX11 DX12 limiting thing is frustrating. I feel like some of those cards are actually capable of handling the games that run on those APIs, like Overwatch for example, but they're limited by the software side of things.

Cool project though, looks great!

Nice clean build! They always come out looking so nice in this case.

Bummer that Kingston orients their SSDs that way, I had have the same issue in my S340 Elite case where I have to use it upside down or have the cables exposed if I want to display the SSD.

Well you put it all together nicely! I just realized it's called Laser Tag, and it definitely reminds me of the color scheme of "Q-Zar" where we used to play laser tag as kids. Loved that ****.

B E A U T I F U L! One of my top 5 favorites on this site so far. I love the vertical GPU with those colors. I want to put a heart eyes emoji but I can't. Nice job painting the rad too!

Congrats on your new PC! Download Steam and keep an eye out for sales, sometimes you can get really good games on sale for as much as 75% off. Hope you enjoy.

AhodShralpy 9 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Yeah that doesn't make any sense lol. For what OP is doing with it he chose the right balance of parts. Obviously an i7 8700k is a higher end processor, but the one he bought is already really powerful!

Your write up is absolutely A+. Probably the best one I've read on the site so far. Your comments about your neighbors had me LOLing at work!

What do you do with these works of art after you're finished? Use them one at a time or sell them? Or just take them apart afterwards for your next suffer project?
