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
Thanks! I'm glad you like it.
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.
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.
+1 But can it run minesweeper? XD
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
Looks good to me
No problem, dude.
The CRYORIG H7 is a better choice for a CPU cooler, but besides that, it looks great!
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
$1000 to $1200 probably
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.
Looks like a great build to me
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.
40GHz?!?!?!?!?!?! Dang son. Pretty good thermals for that temp.
I feel your pain, man. I recently built my first PC and was amazing by the SSD's performance and boot times. From a 7200 rpm Hard drive to a Samsung 850 EVO drive.
Looks great to me! I don't know about that SSD because I haven't ever seen one in action, but everything else looks awesome.
Definitely less than that, I know.
Awesome build! It forsee a featuring in this build's future.
In that case, I wish you best of luck. I'm sorry I couldn't help any more.
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.
Your build list is in USD. His is in CAD.
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!
An R9 380 is not a bad choice.
Please, for all that is holy, manage those cables.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
IMO, the GTX 980 ti is better for the price point, but this card is good as well.
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.
At least 5 pics per thousand spend please. Heck of a beast not to show off. In the newer pics I would also recommend changing the lighting a bit. All around awesome build though, man.
Thanks. I'm probably going to get one XD
You should keep your CPU under the high 70's.
I love this. If I wasn't living in my only cardboard box, I'd build this PC inside of it. Why spend money when you can get a fully enclosed, hot, sexy case like cardboard? In all seriousness I don't live in a card board box, but I really do love this guide.
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.
You would be correct. Those temps are bull.
Where the heck did you see those temps with that cooler? Are you nuts? source
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.
doesn't always work lol. For me it never worked. So finicky. Office Libre is pretty great though. There are quite a few Linux alternatives that can help ease the pain Wine causes but meh.
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!
