Sick. I was lioking to sell PCs at a $50 profit because of how competitive EBay is.
Neat Workstation. Why not use ThreadRipper? ThreadRipper generally exceeds multi core performance of a similarly priced Intel part.
A reccomendation, put the fan pushing into the radiator instead of pulling. I have seen on YouTube you get better performance that way. Neat build.
Sounds good and justifiable.
This is a neat rig. I love the subtle lighting. If it were up to me though, I would have went with the Noctua NHL9x65 over the Cryrorig C7 Cu, not a bad decision nonetheless.
I think an SSD would have fit nicely in the PC, save for cable management(in the case[pun intended] it’s not a big deal since none of the hardware or applications will create tons of heat), seems like a neat humble build, just like baked potatoes. If it were up to me though, I would have gone for an Athlon 200GE or Ryzen 3 2200G, but this will serve them well.
I love the bare copper blocks.
Neat sleeper, if I had the money to, I would make make sleeper out of a 2000-2005 OEM case. I would advise against a GTX 1070(unless used), the RTX 2060 or Vega 56 would be a better option in that range. Also, I would reccomend you find another fan for the Exhaust or cover it up, so you don’t have Air recirculating through the empty exhaust. Also, can we have a pic of the internals but with the lights on please?
Alright that’s good to hear.
How much did the case+PSU cost? Most PSU+Case combos tend to have very low PSUs and the included PSU seems concerning. Save for that, neat build.
Much Fan, such cooling
Seriously though that’s a neat build. If I were doing water cooling, I would have done what you did, cpu-rad-gpu-rad config instead of cpu-gpu-rad. It makes pipes a little messier, but I would assume that the cooling would make it worth it.
Pretty good PC. Might want to have that RTX 2070 RMA’d though, a graphics card pushed to high load should not crash. By the way, don’t worry too much about not having NVME, it really only benefits you if you constantly move large files around and otherwise, the difference between an AHCI SSD and a NVME SSD, is unnoticeable.
Save up for an I5 or I7, or a new Ryzen or Z/B/H300 series mobo, alongside their respective chips and the usability of this machine would be substantially better.
Neat build. How is the case?
Neat build. I would hold off on the RX580 upgrade, it is very likely that new cards will be available in a few months, potentially at CES(January 2019).
Alright. I guess I was mistaken.
Looks neat. I think you may have the PSU oriented in the wrong way, the fan should be facing towards the inside of the case. Also, this think looks like it could use some cleaning.
That sucks man. Regardless, it’s still a neat PC.
Since you are looking at upgrades, here what I got for Graphics cards.
$300-$400($250 used): GTX 1070, Vega 56, Fury X, GTX 980 Ti(I would perfer the 56 for Freesync support, overall better performance and amazing Vulkan performance).
$500-$600($300-$450 used):GTX 1080, GTX 1070 Ti, Vega 64, RTX 2070( I would choose the RTX 2070 for similar, if not slightly better performance compared to the other cards here, and has the same power use and heat output of a GTX 1070, which is better than the rest of the cards here. The only other strong contender is the Vega 64 for Free Sync Support and Vulkan performance).
$700-$800($450-$650 used): GTX 1080 Ti, RTX 2080(RTX 2080 is the better buy thanks to to lower power consumption and heat output, but similar perfomance to the 1080 Ti)
$1000+: RTX 2080 Ti(Just a beast and has no competition, really expensive though).
If you purchasing any of the Graphics cards other than the GTX 1070 or RTX 2070, you will need to upgrade your PSU to something that has either a 8+6 PCIE power or 8+8 PCIE power connectors and no adapters. And also make sure that the aftermentioned cards are the ones with only 8 Pin connectors if you decide not to upgrade your PSU.
Here a good PSU if you decide to upgrade. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074ZLQZH6/?tag=pcpapi-20.
Welcome to the world of PCs
BTW, can we have more pics of your PC, please?
Neat NAS build. Also, why a Mini-ITX mobo?
“For low budget” Lol
Sick PC. The Wraith Ripper uses a 120mm and you could replace the internal fan with a Noctua NFA-12X25 for better temps and noise.
That’s a pretty tight fit if you ask me. I would imagine that building in this would be, at very least, tricky. Well regardless of how difficult it was, it looks like it paid off with a beautiful, smaller(not Mini-ITX small but still smaller than a Normal ATX case), but still hase the full perfomance of a larger PC.
Goku(I’m sorry if this is not Goku, I don’t watch Dragon Ball), looks pretty cool next to those fans. Sick build.
Sick Workstation PC.
Neat build. Yellow themed build are fairly uncommon and this looks neat.
Why did you choose a Celeron? For $10-$20 you could get a G4560, G5400 or Athlon 200GE, that would have performed substantially better. Save for that, neat build.
Neat build. The R9-390 is an older card and the Thermal Paste is likely dried out and not good to begin with. I would reccomend taking the card apart and replacing it with High Quality thermal Paste like my favorite, GC-Extreme, but any high quality thermal paste like Noctua NT-H1 will work as well. Also, what military(USA, Canada, Russia,etc) and branch were/currently in?
Neat Build. I would reccomend the RTX 2070 instead of a 1070 Ti if the price difference is no more than $40. It performs better, is uses less power, produces less heat, has VRLink for next gen VR(All of the cables necessary for VR goggles inside on Type C cable). BTW if you get the RTX 2070, don’t bother with Ray Tracing, Ray Tracing performance is absolute **** unless you turn down setting substantially.
There is an Enermax TR4 AIO cooler, alongside side Noctua, Deepcool, and Coolermaster Air coolers. This looks like the ultimate workstation PC.
Pretty neat rig. Games tend to play pretty bad on older AMD CPUs. If you are willing to upgrade to a modern platform, any Ryzen processor(including the Athlon 200GE) will give you a big boost in performance algonside upgradability to something like a R7-2700X.
This is a sick build. I love the lighting is what makes the build looks sick.
This rig looks sick as hell. Neat build.
Neat build. I have build ready on PC parts picker, I just waiting for someone to say they need a PC and order the parts.
I think an open card should run fine, though hold onto that receipt. It looks like RTX will be more power hungry than Pascal and it will likely dump more heat(could also be the reason why Nvidia switched to an open card for reference). Just make sure you have a good airflow focused case fan for the exhaust.
Ok I understand now. Thanks for sharing your reasoning in choosing your parts.
I see. I asked the question because in a every benchmarks comparing these to Sandy bridge and later Intel chips, the FX chip seems to perform 20-60 FPS worse than its Intel counterparts in gaming, even when tested with budget GPUs, but did well when doing productivity benchmarks.
Looks pretty neat. Why an FX chip though?
This rig is perhaps the sickest rig I have ever seen.
If heat is an issue you can either replace thermal paste with higher quality stuff(my reccomendation goes to GC Extreme) or even liquid metal. Another solution is to do a custom water loop. If I were you, I would also try to undervolt the GPUs so they produce less heat.
I am retarded. Sorry about that,I forgot the learning part but I did want to remind you Incase that was your intention.
Nvidia no longer support 3 and 4 way SLI on Pascal and later cards in case you were planning on that. Thanks for the answered questions.
Pretty sick rig here. One question though, why didn’t you use ThreadRipper? It seems more cost effective and superior in this area. Also, why a blower style card, you seem to have ample airflow and is seems pretty suitable for a more open card. Aside from those two things, I don’t really see any way i could have improved the build without spending more money(maybe the case but that is partially personal prefence).
Neat budget PC. I would be concerned with the PSU which isn’t 80+ certified. For most builders, the lack of 80+ certification is usually a red flag of an unreliable and potentially destructive PSU.
