InWin Polaris fans are super sexy got a few of them myself.
2, 2, and 1 120mm.
Why a bottom fan in the 1st place? xD
Lol its a yoke ... I think entry level these days is RX 570 4GB.
I wish I had photography and photoshop skills as good as yours. My photography has come a long way but the way you list the specs and stuff is so sick. What software do you use?
They're pretty affordable with same quality and better looks than Noctua. Scythe has my all-time favorite coolers.
I think you mean AMD 1800X, and yea, they go for less than half the price lol
Good rig on a good budget +1
How does one lose a GTX 970?
The case is perfect!
Did your PC get arrested too? +1
Well done +1
That mesh looks cool! +1
Nice! The upgrade to Ryzen 3000 is so close though.
Cables look fine. Good job +1
Just wait for the 3800X.
I am well on my way to financing a custom loop for my next upgrade from flipping PC's, it's a good feel!
Also, I don't think Asus Aura Sync works with NZXT Hue/CAM.
Why not just use the stock cooler that comes with the 2600?
I was thinking the same, lots of liquid, but only one rad.
What is the load temp on the 1800X? Pretty impressed you can keep it cool doing streaming/gaming in that tiny case!
Damn clean. I love that CPU heatsink.
I have the same case, waiting to build in it though. Should be a good one! +1
It runs really great, just not the best gamer.
Thanks man! +1
I agree the mirage setting on the Prism cooler looks really cool. Got one meself!
Damn the 8700K is still way too expensive, especially the required cooling and (optional) delidding.
Missing the custom RGB cables (strimmers?) -1
Have you even overclocked? Is your RAM running its' rated speed? I suggest 16GB RAM, otherwise this build will easily destroy Apex at FHD lol.
How about the traditional "Unicorn Barf"?
Pro4's are solid boards for the price. I've used a handful.
I would aim for $50 - $75 profit on this one otherwise it might be considered overpriced.
Nice upgrades, that old case was certainly hideous.
5Ghz??? Tha ****
70-80fps at 1440p? At 1080p ultra that would be normal on AAA titles like you mentioned. Pretty sure those chips overclock to close to 4.5Ghz and won't bottleneck a 1080 Ti. That's what I recommend. A 2600X would be a small upgrade but not much, I would wait for Ryzen 2 (3000 series) this summer.
Haswell is still great, especially delidded and OC'd. DDR3 and DDR4 perform very closely for gaming when you run fast DDR3 with tight timings. Should last ya another few years +1
Clean and I actually really like the mouse mat :)
+1 Just needs white sleeve cables!
Nice build, sure you could sell it for a pretty penny profit.
A decent price for a new 1050 Ti. As of right now the RX 570 is much better bang for buck. Not bad for a first build, though. A beefier cooler to overclock that FX chip and maybe a slightly better GPU and this thing will hit its' max potential. +1
wow nice steal, easy flip for a home media PC
Try 1700 @ 3.8 1.35v to start. Maybe if you have a very good chip it can do 3.9 @ 1.35v.
Threadripper target market isn't gamers, it's content creators. Your 7700K is snappier, especially in gaming and rightly so. Intel 14nm carries faster cores altogether, especially in gaming. For streaming the Threadripper would trump it. Most popular games are being optimized for 6 cores and some are even being optimized for 8 cores. Eventually if devs progress, more cores should = more frames as a basic rule of thumb. Nice build!
Might wanna tidy up them cables.
That OC'd 6700K would last you another two years for high end gaming with ease.
Great little build. Should he plug in an RX 570 this thing would rip! I would imagine it bottlenecks a little much with anything more powerful.
