Thanks, spent a bit more time on the cable management then I wanted to, but it is always worth it. Funny you commenting on the dust build up, I was planning on cleaning that system this weekend including my new personal build. Haven't "fully" finished it, just waiting on the custom cables from cable mod. :)
+1 I'm a sicker for the node 202. Loved building in that case. Have always wanted to do up a setup like this featuring a AIO. Good job on the clean modding.
Love it! Very different, a great thing to see on PCPARTPICKER. +1
Very nice build. Love the Tardis theme
No, temps are great. We did a 7 hour day of gaming last weekend; never saw temps go over 66 ℃. The QBX should offer the same performance for the most part. As long as you have a positive air pressure you'll be fine. Take your time and figure out the cable management. I think I could have done better but it turned out great. I would build in this case (or a similar one) again for sure. I like your list, but I would recommend doing up a SFX style psu, that ATX psu is going to take up a lot of room. MIGHT affect temps (but don't quote me on that) and fitting the 1070 ti might be a tight fit. Just keep that stuff in mind. Do your research. Then look for the deals. Cheers :)
What are your temps at? I've been wanting to do a build in the case but still unsure of how temps will be.
We picked this case mainly for the maximum air flow. She was worried about heat. I wanted to do something like the Silverstone - RVZ03B or even do up another build in the Fractal Design - Node 202. She didn't want a "VCR"/ console style case. I almost sold her on the Silverstone -
FT03B-MINI. I've been wanting to do a build in that case for a while now.
Not really an issues that I can think of besides cable management was a bit tricky. Took me a few try's until I got what you see in the photos. But that's have the fun of it. lol
Nice set up! I wanna do something like this for my uncle.
Lol thanks, always a must
Welcome to PCPartPicker. You have a very nice set up. Was thinking of getting the FX-8350 myself, would be a good upgrade for my current PC. Not sure yet though if I'll go thru with it. Might just wait until I need to do up a full upgrade and build a Ryzen PC.
but can it run crysis?
Thanks for the feed back, I have done a transfer from an HDD to SSD before. That was an interesting experience but I think knowing what I know now, it should be an easier task in the future. We have talked about adding an SSD just for key programs and the OP system. But we'll see.
Pentium G4560 sounds interesting. I'll have to look into that chip more. I have been reading lately up on Intel (Intel noob here lol) and I have been seeing the LGA 1151 socket seems to be the go to for a wide arrange of builds. Maybe besides doing up a Ryzen build for myself or my girl. Might just have to do up an Intel build.
Overall just as you said it will work for lighter tasks. And that's what I had in mind. He isn't a hardcore PC master race junkie. So light gaming, internet use, videos/ movies and shopping on Amazon. It will work for what he's doing. Thanks again :)
Thanks for the feed back :)
Thanks for the feed back, ya after I built this and saw that there was only a BIOSTAR motherboard at the time. I wasn't to sure if I would have gone with a BIOSTAR. Never heard of them until now. Any good? Now at this time ASRock and GIGABYTE have a ITX motherboard I plan on doing a build with Ryzen for my girl next. Can't wait.
If I do another build I might plan on doing up a ITX build or maybe even Micro ATX build to downsize the huge foot print of the tower I have. I have a small office in my house. I have always been interested in the LIAN LI PC-O5S case. Very pricey for what I would really need but would look badass, bolted up on my wall.
If I do plan on getting that CPU then I know that the AX1200 PSU would handle it just fine. :)
I am a man. I do like what my 960's do and with the overclock I have on them. They do up pretty alright. I can run Deus Ex Mankind Divided on high to mostly normal setting and get around 45 FPS on Avg. I have messed around with the setting to were I can get up to 50+ FPS. But I have it at a happy/ playable set up for now.
Thanks for the feed back. I understand you points that you have made and you do make a good point. Just watched a video a while ago from Bitwit on Youtube (My Gaming PC 5 Years Later - Is it Time to Upgrade? Pt. 1): https://youtu.be/ehV9g8nJIKs
He made very interesting points as well. So I'm a mechanic and have been a gear head most of my life now. I think of it this way, should I keep putting money into my old daily driver or replace it with a newer, more fuel efficient, better performance, ect. car/ truck. When it really comes down to it is well... Money! lol
So if I can save my money and take it easy on the Steam sales for the AAA games that I can run/ are just playable enough for my rig. Then maybe I could differently see a Ryzen set up in my future.
lol thanks, I don't mind the feed back really. Thanks for the support.
I have burned a lot of money with this computer. Very true. For the past few months I have been learning and becoming more knowledgeable on PC building, parts, specs, etc. I have realized what all I did wrong with this computer. I want to keep it since I have invested myself into it. Though I would love to start over and do up a badass/ dream build featuring a AMD Ryzen... just gotta get the money together.
Sooo... If I don't fully start over from scratch, I would plan on upgrading the CPU first to a AMD 4 GHz FX-8370 with a Corsair Hydro Series H100i. I'm pretty sure I would see a big difference afterwords so then I could plan on upgrading the GPU(s)
