Coil whine is not easily fixable. If you've got a return period, use it, and buy the same card. It happens on every card, and every brand of card, but you can't really hear it on most of them. Manufacturers replace the loud ones because the uninformed will leave one-star reviews, and they can hit low ratings if it doesn't end up fixed. So get an RMA, and you're good! :)
I know this is quite old, but your review on the hard drive is a tad unfair. You should consider removing it and replacing it with something else, and deleting your review. A refurbished hard drive shouldn't come with high expectations :)
8320E a bit of an oddity, but if it works, why complain? +1 for your time :)
this is an incredibly unbalanced setup. you really should have asked reddit to build one for you, or looked to a friend who knows more about this. a r3 1200 will be super slow when used with a gt 1030. not to mention, you decided to replace the stock ryzen cooler with a alpine passive (!) which will cause noticeable slow-downs. the most you want with that is maybe an athlon 200ge. you also decided to pair this with 32gb of ram, which will never be used with a processor and gpu like that, and a NVMe ssd. your build will be outdated within the next year. when you build your next one, make sure to consult with another user first.
best of luck! :)
the 3-15fps thing comes from 240hz users. the 'effect' is almost unnoticeable on a 120/144/165hz monitor. congrats on the nice keyboard, though :)
used parts are the best! looks pretty good, especially so for a refurb build, as most people just shove the less-flashy parts in an ugly case and call it good. deserves a feature, if you add more photos :)
looks nice, but the 3-15 frame difference that you're talking about between CPUs is a bit insane considering the price differences. consider that your budget is both higher and that the CPU you're talking about was only put at the price it's at currently by AMD's competitive options. besides that, i would highly recommend that you get into the more expensive keyboard options as well. my part list isn't currently updated, but i do have a ducky one 2 mini, and it works brilliantly in games like cs and r6 while providing the full functionality of a normal keyboard.

If you're not changing the BIOS on the 5700, you might as well have went with a refurb 1080 instead. A 5700XT would have fit this build much better. Otherwise, great job on the part choice and final build. :)
Try a second Windows partition, and sync your games from your other 'drive' by using the Steam refresh button. Test for a few hours. If nothing happens, then it has to do with your software. Otherwise, it has to do with your hardware. This is one of my favorite tests to do, as I, for some reason, really like reinstalling Windows. It also either cements your guess of hardware problems, or pushes it over to software. You can also try this with another Windows account, but it won't be as inclusive.
you can get a Ryzen and motherboard for the same price as an i5. i'll still respond if you tell me what you need. you should be specific as to what you're needing. thanks!
i love you
$7, huh? Wish I lived in your area. But seriously, I guess you're right. If I can learn though, (unsteady hands and very stupid) anyone can lol
1660 overpriced, but good build nonetheless. +1 :)
A Ryzen 5 and GTX 1060 can be had for that price. Do people commonly buy PCs for these prices? If so, I'm getting into PC flipping lmao
Came back here to edit. Another thing I just thought of is non-mechanical keyboards. They're all just absolutely awful and almost unusable.
Agree with all of these. Forums kinda died just because they were an outdated relic that involved taking their faces out of the new social medias that kinda just want you to never leave. They still exist as niche communities, which is why people might confuse them with Reddit, which is in-between older forums and newer social medias. Reddit didn't kill those forums at all. It just stole a few niche communities after Twitter and Facebook took all of the general communities' users.
They simply will not fit in my ears. They don't contain the rubber thingys, which is really dumb. I don't care to pay $150 for earbuds, either. For those that can fit them in their ears, they're certainly not bad. :)

80mm, huh? Nice find lol
hello fellow simpson pfp man
It's been a bit since the last post. Glad to see that us keyboard warriors can actually help some people lol
That is the most satisfying pre-build photo I've ever seen. +1(00000000)
The Ryzen stock coolers are actually really nice, but watercooling would definitely be a good option at that price range ;)
Their dead pixel policy is not too nice. However, if you don't mind a few dead pixels, great panel! ;)
It's not that much worse for the price, but yeah. I use a 1080 for 1440p144, and most games play fine, but a 1080 Ti would be a good precaution for future games. Thanks for the correction! :)
As a Ryzen nerd, I forgot that delidding was a thing. If OP isn't worried about the (rather low) failure rates, OP should definitely consider.
Intel, Nvidia, PlayStation... You're lucky that this this build looks absolutely amazing. Great work! +1
$1000 GPU, $20 keyboard. Nice build ;)
I was a second away from slapping that report button lol. Would edit just in case
That's pretty much the only good use for those expensive cards. The performance is similar to the last generation, but the prices are 2x larger. For deep learning, however, they are beautiful machines :)
Looks like it would be nice on mobile, but it's way too big on desktop. It looks like the new Google products, which are, for some reason, absolutely giant. Please offer an old.pcpartpicker.com, or perhaps a Stylish theme could be made by the community..?
1080/2080+ for 1440p144. That 1660 Ti won't cut it.
also nice 2.147PHz OC
What is a Windows 10?
The GPU is actually perfect for this CPU. I think the CPU might be bottlenecking it!
i7 sells for maybe $80, not sure about the board and cooler. RAM could go for $60-$90, depending on the condition and speed. Used SSDs don't ever sell that well, but you might get $15 per if you're lucky. Wi-Fi cards go for $10-$20. Blu-Ray readers are actually really hard to come by, and go for $40-$50. PSU really depends on rating, wattage, and usage.1070 will easily go for $280. Good luck!
The extra 2GB is helpful. Consider getting a refurb 1080, as it'll work around the same for $200 less lmao (I use the 1080 for 1440p144 as well)
Looks nice! +1
Good build, for a good reason. By the way, I'd move the first photo to the back, because it looks like the beautiful PC you built is instead, that one. +1, good luck and stay strong :)
I thought there were only two drive spaces for the Core V1. Are there more, or did you just stick your SSD in the middle of your cables or something (lol)? Nice build, though, +1
This looks really nice! Deserves a feature. +1 :)
I got my PNY GTX 1080 (Blower) for $305 in early December. Ebay had a good sale, glad I went for it ;)
Looks pretty good. Building with this case soon. Did you have any problems while building? +1 btw ;)
y o u ` r e
This is an old post, but it's still awesome. Good build! Very unique. +1 ;)
Or.. An OCable Ryzen ;)
2060 has pretty bad price-to-performance, but still a good guide. Thanks for making it!
I can't wait to see the Stylish theme reverting everything back.. But seriously, thanks for the work that you guys do for this community! Can't wait for the new updates ;)
