I love just about any clear liquid loop, so thumbs up from me. She is a beaut, and that distro plate is cleeeaaaan!
Normally I don't question what I see on posts, but being that temps are hot (pun intended) on my mind, is your CPU not running hot? 87C seems very high, even under load. I understand that I am running different hardware, but I use a very similar cooler and sit around 55C under load. My CPU, according to PCPP, should put off more heat. Curious to see what others think, maybe someone with a 3rd gen Ryzen chip can chime in.
GoT was alright but that season 7 finale was LIIIIIIT
My exact thought, its hilarious
Quality stuff. Fortunately for me, my cats do NOT climb on top of my PC. However, my setup could use more beer. CHEERS
That GPU is so attractive mounted upright
This is awesome, hide those bills!
I'm not gonna lie, I clicked because of the cat. However, the build/setup is clean and the beer adds a nice touch. This post speaks to me on a spiritual level.
I must say, I enjoy a Titanium build
If you ain't forst, you're last.
Oh you fancy, huh
Nice forst build, even better ghost
*exclusively cooled by Corsair
Super clean setup, nice job
There are not many locations, but luckily I have one 40 minutes away. CPU/motherboard bundles are really the only big bonus though, everything else is actually marked up it seems. They do price match, so the markup is not an issue. Convenience is huge, nice to have the ability to shop a full spectrum of products in stock.
You can fit a Ryzen 5 2600 in a $750 budget all day long, especially with third gen being recently released. If you have a Micro Center near, they have bundle deals of CPU and motherboard to save $30 in addition to the already reduced prices.
I really like it. I am a sucker for clear liquid loops, especially with how simple and clean the lines are. Good usage of space, nothing looks over crowded or bare. RGB coordination will go a long way, as said.
I believe ya! Building is definitely gratifying, I push building vs buying down all my friends throats. Just thought "First Build" was comical, usually think of dinky builds with poor cable management. Not everyone (noone) goes straight to a custom loop with top tier hardware, but, YOLO.
FiRsT bUiLd (lol), seriously though, killer build
DUDE, this is way too cool.
Very clean and classy, love the colors and usage of space
I just know the exact RAM I paid $210 for exactly a year ago, is now being sold for $80 looooool
You may have to BIOS update the motherboard to work with that CPU, which is why its flagging a potential compatibility issue. May want to look at like a B450 board, like you had selected in the other list. The board you have selected will work, just may not out of the box, might be something to consider for simplicity. As far as RAM goes, 16gb is plenty, I was referring to the speed such as 3000mhz or 3200mhz. RAM prices are so cheap right now you can probably find a faster set for another $10-$15, shouldnt be a huge concern either way though.
If you are not overclocking, do not buy the "K" (unlocked). Also, https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000025694/processors/intel-core-processors.html
I would forget the CPU cooler for now, one will be included with the CPU. Use the $60 to choose faster RAM and a good power supply, to better support future upgrades. Also use the 7200rpm HDD
Hardware, clear liquid loop, RGB coordination... Nailed it
SWEET clap BABY clap JESUS clap
Before or after deductions, weekly or bi-weekly, cause I am looking at 19 paychecks lol
Looks like a decent build. The 2700X is one of the better options for gaming/streaming without spending a ton, 1660Ti can more than handle high FPS 1080p (friend has one). Yes that is a lot of storage, but if you're downloading games it will fill up quick. I personally have a 250/500/1tb in my build and all are over 50% full. I feel like a barely have anything downloaded.
Just checked it out, looks good! I love how thin the design is, the exposed heat pipes look great too in my opinion. Go team MSI lol
I may be slightly biased, but the Titanium is such an attractive GPU
I don't have that kind of patience for behind the scenes cable management and it shows
Very cool concept
I will have up to date photos tonight, made a change recently and waiting on last part to be delivered today.
I am just personally a fan of white, looks cleaner to me. Most times if I have the choice to buy something in black or white, I choose white. Something to consider would be RGB, if you plan to add case lighting the white will show better. Awesome case though, very well built and easy to work in.
I just wanted to let you know I bought and installed the H100i, significantly better temps. With the H60 I would sit around 70c under load, occasionally reaching 75c. The H100i keeps me at 48-51c under load, while looking fantastic. Thanks again
Absolutely it should, but either way both choices will fit in a $500 budget. My main point is that the third gen Ryzen will release soon, and is looking to be a WAY better value than anything out now.
THANK YOU for the long, detailed post. This is the type of answer I was looking for. Glad to hear feedback from someone with real world applications. I too would very much so love to do a custom loop, however I cant justify the $500-700 cost when that money could upgrade hardware. In a weird way, I am glad to hear of your poor experience with the H150i.
Wait a month for the Ryzen 3000 CPUs to release and benchmark. As far as current gen, my i5-8600k outperforms my buddies Ryzen 5 2600x pretty well for gaming. Third gen Ryzen is looking promising though, I would 100% wait for July 7th.
I honestly don't even know what to comment, its flawless.
Honestly, cats and memes are two things I could NOT live without. God bless this build.
lil thicc glow boi
That block tho. Looking mighty clean!
insert fire emoji
Love it, super fan of clear liquid loops
SUPER clean setup, nice
I have no issues with the white only, in fact I really like how it looks in contrast to the RGB elsewhere. If I were to switch, it would be for a larger radiator. Even then, I don't have much to gripe about. With a 4.8 OC I maintain 70c under load, which I am comfortable with.
