bengy22 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 28 days ago
  • brand new never posted
  • no
  • no
  • no
  • yes both of his sticks where tested in different slot at different time
  • no but even without ram installed he gets the cpu and dram debug lights and also its brand new

All of the lights and fans where spinning and he went over all connections, reseated the cpu and cmos battery. He bought the parts through amazon so hes returning the motherboard tomorrow and if that doesn't fix it then the cpu.

So you got the gpu block for free and the cpu block for a really good deal, where are those people i would love to watercool my build! Looks really good though, any reason you didn't go with the 360mm reservoir?

Looking back on GN's tear down i see what you mean about all those screws, your card looks really good though and i can't even tell you painted it unless you look at the ftw logo.

kermit101's Completed Build: Lian Li Dynamic Storm Trooper Build

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Any reason you didn't remove the shroud when "painting" it? I know you mentioned a few risks but honestly from my experience it's quite easy (but iv'e never taking the ftw3 apart) to disassemble a Evga gpu. I'm asking cause i have thought about buying a used ftw3 and painting it white like your's and just wanted to know do you think if you did disassemble it would have turned out better?

kermit101's Completed Build: Lian Li Dynamic Storm Trooper Build

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Oh didn't realize it was for the business site, which is even sold out so i don't see why pcpp has it listed for $800. I don't think black friday will have any affect on prices, it usually doesn't and with them no longer making 1080ti's i don't see it happening saldy.

kermit101's Completed Build: Lian Li Dynamic Storm Trooper Build

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

You can currently buy the ftw3 for $800, all op did was plasti-dip the shroud white to look like the white one.

Forum Topic "Is buying a used GPU worth it?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

For air coolers you have the Arctic Accelero 3 / 4 and the Morpheus 2 And liquid cooling will limit you to something like a nzxt g12 and a 240mm or 280mm aio, a smaller aio word work but honestly with the tdp of a 1080ti i wouldn't recommend anything small than a 240mm. If you want you can check out my build which uses the older style g12 but it worked awesome and kept my high tdp r9 390 very quiet and cool link

Forum Topic "Is buying a used GPU worth it?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

If its from a friend you know i would buy it, hell for $400 if i could confirm it works i would buy it! Really though if it's a good friend they wouldn't sell you something that they knew would break and if you do run into any problems later on your friend should have a receipt that would need to claim warranty with. It's a great card and $400 is a great price, the turbo isn't known for having a good cooler on it but it's not something a aftermarket cooler can't fit.

Cpu: You don't need/ have the budget for a i7, the 2600 is a great cpu for the money, with the motherboard future proofing any upgrades later on and it comes with a great cooler, overclocking supported.
Motherboard: Good for the price and is with the new second gen amd motherboards.
Ram: You really should try to get 16gb imo, i went from 8gb to 16gb and never looked back.
Storage: 1tb hard drive is standard for any build, the ssd is nice but does take the build a little over budget, you could always add one later, if storage capacity isn't very high you could look into getting a 500gb ssd instead of the hard drive and add more space later on if needed.
Gpu: 1070 is still very good for the money, this is one of the best 1070's and is only $10 more than the cheapest one, also is from Evga so that's nice.
Power supply: Used one in a build and a friends build, good for the money and as a little more wattage.

What if you get a card used for gaming? It doesn't really matter as you have the 1 year of warranty and mining doesn't make a gpu perform worse or have a huge affect on the gpu's life span, most miners take better care of gpu's then gamers.

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

I know what you mean by the normal cooler running hotter, i have two in my build in sli and i see the top card running around 5c hotter but a new case that has better airflow would help a lot, with the side panel on my case (i usually run without it) my cards are around 80c and the second card around 75c. You said that your cards run around the same temps but what is that?

arspata's Completed Build: Whitx Knight

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

Whats wrong with the 24pin cable, i think it looks great! I don't believe the longer cable would affect the airflow at the psu shroud, if i'm being honest the only thing i would think about changing would be the silver on the aio, painting it something like black so it doesn't stand out as much.

Forum Topic "Cheap sleeved power supply extension cables (worth?)"

bengy22 4 Builds 3 points 6 months ago

They look good for the most part, I would make sure to get some cable combs to go along with them, they will not look as "full" as nice custom ones and you will have a harder time with cable management cause of the longer cables. If you want you can look at my build linked here as I went with a cheap cablemod kit that was $40 and came with cable combs if you want an idea on how they might look.

Forum Topic "Core i7-5820K worth it in 2018?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Where are you looking? When looking on ebay you have to factor in 10% fees. I look on /reddit/harwareswap and all these prices are accurate. Edit heres a link to someone selling that motherboard and a 5820k for $200 and $100, most people will sell for lower if you bundle items and cause these haven't sold they will also go lower on the price, if you want more proof of these prices just look on there yourself.

This is how the system would be priced out if someone was to sell it piece by piece on something like ebay after the 10% fee, or reddit hardwareswap. I would price the system at around $800

I would keep the sc2 hybrid and test it out, even if the pump does make noise it probably will still be quieter than a air cooler.
