manirelli's Build Guide: Excellent Gaming Build

Hp7242 1 Build 3 points 19 months ago

I'm no expert, so do not just take my word for it. You may have to do research on the parts yourself, but it should be kept cool enough, CPU might run low 70s if you overclock it (which you should if you get a "K" series CPU), GPU may run low 80s with the blower style cooler, but you can adjust the fan curve if that does not make you happy. You should not worry about the heat affecting the lifetime of the PC. You will probably upgrade parts before they ever come close to dying, and if they die sooner than that, you can probably get a replacement for free because of a defect. I would not recommend liquid cooling for this PC unless you know what you are doing and are willing to pay a couple hundred dollars more. I think you would be fine with just the cooling the parts come with though. Hope this helps!

Low 70s. I think the max I hit was 74 degrees Celsius, but I've changed my fan curves and such since then, so results may vary

600W should let be more than enough for a GPU and CPU overclock as long as your PSU is good quality

On the subject of porting over an OS to a completely new PC, I used EaseUS's software to copy my Windows partition from a 500 GB HDD on an old Dell workstation to my completely new PC with a 500 GB SSD. Everything was smooth and worked out fine. The only thing I had to do was call Microsoft and tell them I had to "replace" my motherboard and they gave me a completely new Windows key after doing some remote PC work to make sure my windows copy was legit. Other than that, you have a very nice system on your hands. Hope you enjoy it! +1

Sorry man. Guess you're outta luck. I'd wait a little bit for it though. It is a much better cooler for the price.

Forum Topic "$1000>Skylake OC Build"

Hp7242 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

The CRYORIG H7 is a better cooler for the price point. The R9 380 is also better for the price point, but besides that it looks pretty good to me. Good luck, dude.

The CRYORIG H7 is better for the price point (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/93Crxr/cryorig-cpu-cooler-h7), but it seems to be out of stock right now. I definitely agree about getting an aftermarket cooler for overclocking though.

Huh. How well does it run when the CPU is melted? I guess you tried to run minesweeper and that's how you got those idle temps. Hope you can still afford a new CPU after that budget XD

You should totally try and paint that graphics card, dude. I reccomend LinusTechTips's recent video as he is painting the same card you have. It's a pretty enjoyable video just to watch for fun as well. Anyway, you, sir, have an awesome PC. Looks pretty and I'm sure it runs very well.

You could ask them to hold the package or ask a trusted neighbor to get it. With people who follow mail trucks around these days, I would hate for your shiny new part to be stolen. To answer your question, it really depends what you're getting. A PC fan? Probably not. A CPU? Maybe.

Wouldn't reccomend that PSU. Isn't really that good quality. At that price point you could get a Skylake machine too. An Intel i5-6500 is a pretty good choice.

Is it a possibility you shorted something while replacing RAM? Other than that, I can't think of what could be wrong.

Looks awesome. Can't wait to see the completed build. My only question is why the R4 instead of the R5? For a little bit more, you can get better accoustics and all around functionality. I have it myself and couldn't say enough good about it.

RAM "performance" isn't really much if anything at all. I like the option of upgrading to 64 GB, but for now, all I need is 16. Thanks for your suggestion though. Have a nice day!

Hp7242 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

You're probably going to have to upgrade your motherboard when you upgrade your CPU. I would reccomend Intel 1151 socket motherboards. Skylake is an awesome platform to upgrade to and will give you great performance.

Hp7242 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

Why the APU with a dedicated graphics card? Also, if you are going to actually use the APU's power, you need a lot faster ram. It makes a pretty big difference. Finally (like every other comment says) CHANGE THE PSU. I'd hate for your new PC to be the reason you lose your home in a fire or at bare minimum all your PC components.

Forum Topic "Help with parts"

Hp7242 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

I'd reccomend the 800-900 range. And about those lists, I really wouldn't combine a gaming build and a CX power supply. They aren't very good quality PSU's. Looks pretty good besides that.

Forum Topic "Help with parts"

Hp7242 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

An i5 setup with the use you stated in the post is nearly impossible to do. I reccomend you expand your price point to get a good price/performance ratio.

Hp7242 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

I know. Why would you assume I didn't already know that? They may not be the same price now but they definitely used to be. Even then, the 980 ti isn't a bad choice when you consider its price and specs. You know what assuming makes...

Forum Topic "Best Video Card for 120 fps+ gaming in 1080p?"

Hp7242 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

IMO, the GTX 980 ti is better for the price point, but this card is good as well.

Forum Topic "Best Video Card for 120 fps+ gaming in 1080p?"

Hp7242 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

Make sure you have a monitor that supports the Hz you are going to need to see any big difference with that frame rate. I would reccomend a GTX 980 or 980 Ti if you a really willing to put in the moneyz. Those are the power efficient points, but if you are just looking for FPS, Amazian's post about the R9 390 is a good bet as well.

Forum Topic "How much can I push my 6600k"

Hp7242 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

They may not be normal by your standards (the DirectCUIII is pretty efficient and very quiet), but 90C is wayyy high for any graphics card, especially an aftermarket cooler by Asus. I don't know where you are getting your temps, but unless your PC is an actual microwave with no fans, you wouldn't get those temps. It would hard thermal throttle, and maybe even crash your PC before those temps were hit. I highly doubt a STRIX card of any kind would ever hit 90C. I checked your sources and even they don't come close to 90C. 85 and 83 is a lot lower than close to 90C.

Forum Topic "How much can I push my 6600k"

Hp7242 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

You would be correct. Those temps are bull.

No problem. I just finished my first build a little while back, and I wondered the same thing. Now I am running a 5820K at 4.3GHz with 1.212 on the vCore. It is legit.

Forum Topic "How much can I push my 6600k?"

Hp7242 1 Build 2 points 35 months ago

Have you ever overclocked before? All chips are different. Say one of your bros had a 6600K as well. You both decide to overclock. His gets 4.5 but you are able to hit 4.7. This is called the silicon lottery. Some chips have better silicon because of manufacturing processes and randomness, but some have less stable silicon chips. This is why some people can get their chips up in the range of 4.6 with 1.25 on the vCore but others have to have 1.3. Some chips just need more voltage than others, but the more voltage the more heat. You just have to trial and error your specific chip. You find what speed you need and what temperatures you like, and see how low you can get the temps (how low you can get the voltage) and still be stable with your GHz frequency. To test your stability, run the CPU under 100% load for 10 minutes or so with something like Aida64 (if you really want to test you should do it for a couple hours but meh). There are multiple guides on YouTube on how to do this with your chip, so that's what I reccomend. Good luck, man!
