This is a gorgeous build! I mean I love RGB and fancy water loops with clear tubing, but this site is all about creative good looking builds. Even though this isn't a flashy crazy lit up build, it's beautifully crafted, and serves a purpose. I absolutely love this.

Make sure the bios is updated. They recently updated the bios for the asus boards to support higher memory clocks. I only know this because I own an asus ryzen board.

How is gaming on the frontier edition? I'm seriously considering getting Vega over a 1080ti.

Okay so in the bios, where it says D.O.C.P settinga try the standard profile. D.O.C.P is Ryzens version of XMP. Once done, scroll to the bottom of the extreme tweaker settings page to see if the standard profile made memory voltage go to 1.35, that's the voltage it needs to be at.

I used to be such an Intel fanboy till my Gigabyte motherboard fried my 5820K due to an overvoltage issue with a beta bios. I switched to Ryzen 7 and havent looked back. How's threadripper treating you?

Only critique I can make is move that GPU rad to the front for better cooling. The rad at the back will suck in hot air and make for higher temps. in the front as an intake will cool better, but nice freaking build my man!

A recommendation for pure aesthetics would be to get the black Noctua industrial fans, they're awesome and would go more with the overall look. Nonetheless, nice first build man!

nothing as fancy as this, but I'm running some Def Tech floor standing speakers (forget the models, but the newest models). I'm a Twitch streamer so I have a preamp, mic, and mixer right now too. Headphones, audioquest nighthawks, vmoda m-100's, and beyerdynamic custome one pro's hooked up to a creative soundblaster ZXR and a handbuilt tube amp I made myself :)

Still jealous of those B&W's man, I love that company.

I'm running a 5820k but need more threads and better encoding, I think Ryzen 1800X will be an upgrade for me.

$200 will get it. This processor is going for that on Ebay without free shipping. I'm doing the shipping so it's fair.

An i7 is your best because of hyperthreading. If I were you. save up a little more money and get an i7 6700k if you're on the Z170 socket, or go with an X99 PC and get a 6 core or better. Video encoding can be very taxing on the CPU especially if you're doing high resolutions.

im not worried about the gameplay as much as the actual stream. im on the verge of maxing the i5 out, because I play a lot of high action games. I can notice some stuttering here and there

it'll handle gaming to a certain extent but it has stuttering every now and then and im just not happy with it.

okay let me ask you this, I have enough money to get a 5820k and a new motherboard. Would that be a better route? I will eventually get one of these options later, im just trying to find the best solution for now.

Thanks for the help BTW

Thanks so much for the help! I'll have the extra cash so I may spring for the 6850k, but you have helped me greatly! I may upgrade my current to a z170 setup eventually, but for right now the 4790k will suffice and it performs admirably.

No gaming will be done on this rig, my other rig will soon have a 4790k in it and will be used for gaming. This new rig with the 6800k will be for rendering videos and streaming with obs. I'll need more encoding performance.

is the encoding on the 6700k as good as the 6800 or 6850? the new rig will be strictly for streaming and content creation such as rendering videos and streaming to twitch

6700k, 6800k, 6850k. I want something that will encode better. I'm upgrading my current rig to the 4790k since it's on z97 and it'll be used as my gaming rig. The new rig will have all new parts, such as the CPU we are talking about now.
