Titan8881's Completed Build: Project Apocalypse

Titan8881 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

Yeah in order to get the processor deals you need to work retail at a computer store and register through the program. Then you just complete some learnings and boom. Great deals.

Yeah I got it through Intel Retail Edge and will be upgrading to the 7700k for $200! Loving life :)

I have a powerful desktop but I feel that that would be weird to use. Do you have any experience doing this? Not a bad idea..

Titan8881 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Even so, still not a bad price if I had to spend $200 or so for 2x16GB sticks. Especially since it comes with a 2TB HDD AND a SSD. Great deal.

Titan8881 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

That sounds like a great deal! Do you know if it has a single 16GB stick of two 8GB sticks?

Might as well get the 580 if you are in that price range since it is basically a better 480.

I got your link from the description. If you read my comment you would have read that I said that the cooler designs don't match up.

EDIT 2: Also I don't see any SLI fingers don't know if that's just me.

It's a little fishy to me that if you look at the 1080 he linked https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125908&cm_re=gigabyte_gtx_1080-_-14-125-908-_-Product the cooler design is way different then the pictures he posted.

Power efficiency doesn't really affect the quality of a power supply. All it does is guarantee how much of the wattage you will actually be able to use. You want to look at sites like johhnyguru for that.

What did you use to put load on your processor? 58 on heavy load seems really low..

Titan8881 4 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

Why not use the g4560 and a B250 or H270 board? With the extra money, you could have gotten an SSD for a boot drive or a 470? Good build but could have been improved a little.

EDIT: Just read your comment about the i3 over the g4560 and while that could have been warranted on the previous generation the new Pentiums feature hyperthreading, basically making them really cheap i3s.

It worked fine and managed to get it working at 1.34v

Forum Topic "i7 6700k voltage question"

Titan8881 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

That voltage was the result of a quick overclock. I had some more time yesterday and managed to get it down to 1.34v at the same speed.

Titan8881's Completed Build: "Blue Skies" Brothers First Gaming PC

Titan8881 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

I'm glad you enjoyed this build! And yes I know a lot of people that bought gaming computers and were somewhat upset with the performance to cost ratio. I personally find desktops more enjoyable to build and play on. For any locked CPU, as long as you have decent case cooling, the stock cooler will be fine. It is a common misconception that it will get too hot under gaming loads and while it won't be as cool as it can be, it also won't be in the 80s or 90s. This case was honestly really fun to build in. It allows you to use a mini atx motherboard and not make it looked dwarfed with still plenty of room for 5 fans, unique SSD mounting points, and decent cable management. One thing about the build list that you asked about is I would add an SSD for sure. Even if you have to deal with less storage to start off with and add a HDD later, SSD's are amazing and really make your whole experience so much better. Otherwise I think it is a good start especially for a 600$ budget.

Thank you! The blue lights are coming from the fans and the RAM. We have replaced all of the fans with the corsair quiet edition fans now that have blue LED's and are much quieter and imo have a better blue color.

Forum Topic "i7 6700k voltage question"

Titan8881 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

I have a corsair h100i v2 and it don't have the best cooking solution as my exhaust both hit walls keeping the heat close to the system. I also have my fans at a lower rpm but could bump them up. In gaming it never gets close to that.

Forum Topic "i7 6700k voltage question"

Titan8881 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

Do you think 93 on the highest core during prime95 is high? Obviously in real world scenarios it will never be so heavily utilized

Forum Topic "i7 6700k voltage question"

Titan8881 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

Yeah I'm tinkering a bit more to see if I can get it a little lower, temps were a little high.

Titan8881 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

I am currently doing a little more tinkering and am stress testing 4.635 at 1.36v and still seems to be working good. If this works out I'll try to go a bit lower

Haha actually have a dedicated microphone and need it so I don't have electronic interference. (The motherboard audio is kinda crap). And for the profile pic, I should probably get that changed but I am aware that Razer has ****** audio quality which is why I no longer use them. This is for my step brothers build who used some handy-down parts from me and my other step brother. Please refer to this link for the build. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Jnm8TW

Just look on this website and filter 4k, 60hz, and under 5ms response. You will find many monitors that meet the bill for much under 1000$. Maybe not the size but who needs that big of a screen when you are literally within a couple feet of the screen.

The Kraken is one of the more frequently used CPU coolers on this website. Very trusted, and the problem with going all SSD is that it is very expensive. To have the two TB he has in hard drive would cost upwards of $400 versus $100 for the same size but slower.
