With a Ryzen 2200g I can build a office PC for 300-400$. That's why I was asking.
How much did you actually pay for all of this, just curious because PCPP quoted 625$ and I'm like O.O
Based on ram/storage this isn't for gaming but rather productivity which could benefit from openCL
No I did it on Amazon
Hell yeah. Looks better in person
He bought it about 8 months ago to drive a 4k monitor. That's his only really reason for it
Okay honest opinion here. Nice build but:
Could have saved money on the power supply. 550 watts is plenty to run anything up to an i7 and a budget GPU like a 470/480 with it if it's got a good rating, or could have gotten lower rating for less.
But im in the US so I guess parts would be cheaper here.
Also I would have waited for ryzen 3/5 chips to come out
But a PC is a pc
+1 for node and +1 for the sapphire. It's a superb card.
I have the same Mobo do your cards run in x16 both or x8/x8.
What cooler are you using on your 480 because I too have a sapphire 480
I think the sapphire nitro 480 would look better but that's just me
Team red +1
I get the future upgradeability thing...Just I never get any Mobo without 4 slots and I have an H7 with LPX memory and it all fits fine. Just need to get less fancy low profile ram.
My only questions are this:
1) why the 6300 when the 6100 is cheaper?
2) why not use 2 sticks of 4gb memory since dual channel configs are faster
Other than that solid price (although i would have not used money on accessories (44$) and gotten a 6500 quadcore)
the 470 is about 20-30% better than the 1050ti because the 470 is a cut down version of the 480, he made the right choice. (the 470 can do 1440p on medium to high with up to 60fps, tried it myself) Also t he 1050ti is CHEAPER than the 470 so how would it be better for more money? lol
I was gonna go with the i5 and 480 combo then got a great deal on the i7 6700. You're right the cryorig is superb. I get about 21C idle and 49-51C load. But there's no point if running it in a custom curve mode as the idle is a bit loud.
+1 for sure
Also everyone who says 8gb of RAM is enough, try running world of warships XD. The game alone swallows 4-5GB of RAM if given the the opportunity
Cool beans thanks
I've got a similar monitor just freesync is 40-75hz and the 480 just kills it performance wise...Can't wait for a 250$ Vega based card.
Hope you can get one soon, I do recommend either the stricx if you got the dough if not sapphire has 2 8gb models, one at 1306mhz and one at 1390mhz the lower clocked one goes for like 240$ and it's really quiet
I love my RX 480 :)
I'm using an i7 and don't go over 52° ever :)
So the 2 fans you got their are above the GPU? Sounds good, I'm gonna be using a low profile card, possibly even fangless if I can find something in the 35$ price range. Or maybe just use integrated i3. The case looks much bigger than I thought though so...Idk how slim it is for a bedroom media pc
+1 for the cryorig. That thing is such a beast (my i7 rarely goes over 50°)
Also look at asia horse fans, they're like 10$ a lol but 1) super quiet and 2) beautiful minimalist white LEDs that would fit the case
True DAT, personally I would usually get a better CPU and cheaper GPU and upgrade you later as CPUs tend to be used more as I do work and play on the same system and hate getting bogged down by dual cores lol. Plus I prefer not to get used CPUs, or older gen CPUs are just hard to find new so when Skylake gets old let's hope you can still get one that fits 1151
I'm thinking of using the node 202 for a media PC for my tv (maybe and a10 and some low end r7 240 for like 35$) are temps an issue? Also does the 202 come with the pcie bridge to mount the gou sideways and do you have to use a blower style cooler or are their vents for a top fan GPU?
Next time pinch your pennies but get a qaudcore. You're loosing about 10-20 fps depending on the game because it's a dual core. Also why not rx480 + freesync?
For a first time build that looks darn good. +1
Wow this looks so darn good. Im jealous because that's the look I was going for with mine but I had to go with cheaper components and not so good of a look :(
+1 for h7. Beast cooler
I have an i7 6700 and I'm using a cryorig h7. It's essentially a 212 just smallee (still huge) and fits most cases. Getting about 19-21° idle and 54 is max recorded temp so far with gaming.
I'm playing on a 1080p ultra wide and I'm using about 5-6gb of VRAM on small maps in bf 1 and I'm using about 7 in wows.
Glad to see another 6700/480 combo. That's what I have (except I have sapphire nitro+ 8gb) and it's plenty for anything I throw at it.
Yep just those fans.. 2 inside the case and one at the front
It's called Asia horse. It's like 10.99 I think a piece on Amazon
It was actually close to that but it paid off as I can still pay for college!
It was mostly my dad. He tried holding Me back as long as he could.
Die hard and fan..I bought an i7 6700 because I got it for 265$
I've been waiting since summer for these deals. And man was it worth the wait. I got it one part at a time over a 2-3 week period.
Got to love the Nitro +. LOVE mine
Thats what i thought when i saw the prices today vs when i got the parts!
Gotcha. I still would have scraped some change together and spent a little more on a 470 simply because it's head and shoulders over the 1050ti for a very reasonable price.
How much did th 670 cost you? Because you can pick up an rx460 or 1050ti for probably around the same price (new for new) unless you got it used or dirt cheap. The 4gb of ram on new cards would last much longer.
Also why thermal compound? The 6500 won't even reach high temps, I have a 6700k with stock cooler and the Intel thermal compound and it never goes over 50c.
Nice built but why not a rx470 8gb? It's clocked as high as the 480 and it was like 165-175$ that day.
