Cpu: More powerful with a higher boost clock and and more threads, also isn't a apu which wasn't needed. (Please note if you live near a microcenter you could save money here, When you include the $30 off if you buy a motherboard and cpu and the $30 rebate on the 1700 it would only be $5 more and a way better cpu, or just get a 1600 and save a little money.

Motherboard: I just chose this one cause it looks nice and has a good price, i would go with what you like and what you want to pay.

Ram: 16gb is the way to go now days, you could always go with 8gb now and 8gb more later if needed to save money.

Storage: I chose a 2tb drive for more space and it was only $20 more, could go with the 1tb to save money.

Gpu: The rx 580 8gb will blow the 560 out of the water! The 580 will last you a long time and has 8gb of vram which will also be good, could also go with the 1060 6gb depends on what games you play and you have a gsync monitor or freesync monitor.

Case: Went with the corsair 275r with tempered glass only was $10 more and trust me, you want the tempered glass.

Psu: Iv'e used one before and had no problems, good price too.

One place to check would be Reddit/buildapcdeals People link good deals and if you see one here you could save some money.

Hey i could hey you but first i have a few questions, why did you chose a 2200g apu even though you have a 560 in your parts list? Do you have a "theme" or color scheme you would like to stick with? And do you have a microcenter near by so you can save money on the cpu and motherboard?

Hey the first O11d build! I, like you, want to move from my s340 to the O11d, any regrets with it so far?

Thanks for the photos! Especially cause i have the s340 right now and plan on getting the O11d soon! Now i just need to chose between the white or black.

carlskie's Completed Build: Mini Gaming PC

bengy22 4 Builds 2 points 10 days ago

I did, had the fan speed at 70% and while it was not very noticeable in my s340 i had temps around 72c

Forum Topic "Best white case for my dream pc?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 10 days ago

The Lian Li-O11 Dynamic could work. $129 (doesn't come with any fans), white, glass front and side, separated psu (doesn't show the psu) cube design, and easy removal of both sides. Link here One thing to note is it just came out on the 10th so supply is kinda limited right now, also they plan to release a airflow version where the front is a mesh for extra fans and airflow.

Forum Topic "GTX 1080 Ti Turbo or Strix?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 10 days ago

Strix, the $200's less alone would be worth it but also it will have a higher resell value. Also the Fractal Design core 500 has enough room for it and i think it will be actually better than a blower. And the Strix is just a all around better card.

Id try replacing the thermal paste to something more high quality. I had a founders 1070 and after changing it to ic-diamond 7 i got about a 5c difference and had my fan speeds lower.

Forum Topic "GTX 1060 6GB heavily underperforming"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 11 days ago

Your probably just experiencing a heavy cpu bottleneck, did a simple google search and this was the first thing to pop up, im no expert though, might be worth talking to palit about this.

Forum Topic "GTX 1060 6GB heavily underperforming"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 11 days ago

You can check UserBenchMark to see how your gpu preform compared to other 1060 6gb's.

tangent_proxy's Completed Build: Shadowfox (Winterfox 2.0)

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 12 days ago

They probably got it used, you can find 980ti's on reddit/hardwareswap for around $300 and a little more for one with a waterblock. Actually just recently had the chance to buy a 980ti with waterblock for $275 locally but i changed my mind.

tangent_proxy's Completed Build: Shadowfox (Winterfox 2.0)

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 12 days ago

Just doesn't really seem worth it though, $470 for the gpu, $160 for the waterblock and $40 for the backplate just for lower temps and dx 12 support.

tangent_proxy's Completed Build: Shadowfox (Winterfox 2.0)

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 12 days ago

Why consider a 1070 though? 980ti preforms the same if not better than a 1070 and they wouldn't have to drop half a grand for no real reason.

Forum Topic "Should I get a unregistered used GPU?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 14 days ago

I would stick to evga, they don't mind if the cooler has been taken off or if you bought it used, the warranty sticks with the card and i had no problems when i had to rma my used 2nd hand 970 with them.

Forum Topic "Most Popular Mid Towers right now?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 15 days ago

The lian Li pc-011 dynamic has been quite popular, hasn't been released yet but youtube reviews show it has good airflow, great water cooling support with up to 9 120mm fans (doesn't come with any) with front and side glass with easy two thumb screw removal, a dual chamber design, and a great price $129 or @99 preorder. They also plan to release a airflow version. Link to the case

Forum Topic "Who overclocked there 970?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 17 days ago

1499mhz is a good overclock for your card. everything should be fine and if the overclock isn't stable the card will not boost as high.

Did you get the gpu back yet?

Forum Topic "Who overclocked there 970?"

Whats the core clock after the +170? Personally mine gets to 1500 to 1529 depending on the game.

jmehmn's Completed Build: Atrium Build

bengy22 4 Builds 2 points 20 days ago

Iv'e seen it before but only one other time so your must be supper special! :) The build got deleted after one day i believe, the mods on here are good at what they do, just every once and a while one gets threw.

Forum Topic "Gtx 970"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 22 days ago

I wouldn't risk a local deal for that much, you can get one shipped to you with paypal buyer protection for around $175 on reddit/harwareswap.

Forum Topic "GTX 980 Ti 2-way SLI with a 750W power supply?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 23 days ago

As other have stated i would get a higher wattage psu, i was in the same situation a few months ago, had two 980ti's and only a 750w psu, i actually decided before a got them i was only going to use one till i could get my hands on a 850w or a 1000w for overclocking headroom, but one of the 980ti's was faulty so i ended up sending them back and now i realize even my evga 750w gold power supply with all the cables without needing adapters was not enough.

Forum Topic "Why hasn’t the price of a used 970 dropped that much?"

bengy22 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 27 days ago

Ok so now i understand why, thanks it helps a lot!

Forum Topic "Why hasn’t the price of a used 970 dropped that much?"

bengy22 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 27 days ago

So what your saying is, cause 970’s mine equihash a little better than a 1060 3gb miners don’t really care about the extra power used, I actually knew this cause I mine on both my 970 and my brothers 1060 3gb at night with the 970 averaging 175 watts while the 1060 is 120 Watts, so wouldn’t miners go with the 1060’s cause 2 970’s would use the same amount of power as 3 1060’s. Also wouldn’t miners want newer cards with warranty? Cause used 1060 3gb’s have dropped $50-$75 while the 970 only has dropped $25 in the same amount of time.

But modflesh is a bit more flexible.

modflex + modmesh = modflesh?

Forum Topic "How much could I sell it ?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Yes they are.

Forum Topic "How much could I sell it ?"

bengy22 4 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

These are the prices i could come up with for each part, these prices could vary a little. These where priced out using reddit/hardwareswap (like ebay but without the extra 10% fee so the prices are cheaper on hws)

~Cpu: $110
~Cpu Cooler: $10
~Motherboard: $60
~Ram: $45
~Ssd + Hdd: $45+$15
~Gpu: $260
~Case: $60 (not to sure about this one, would also have to be local)
~Psu: $70
~Monitor: $70
~Optical Drive: $10
~Windows 10 : $30 (can't sell this but you can value this if you sell the whole build)
I'd price the total build around I'd say around $700 to $800

Forum Topic "1080ti FTW3 stuck at 1500mz"

bengy22 4 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Try opening Geforce experience and see if your clocks speeds change while its open, my 970 had a problem like this and the only way to get it to run higher than the base clock was to have it open in the background, ended up rma'ing it to evga.

You don’t know how much this makes me miss out on a deal I almost got, was two 980ti’s for $500 just like the ones you have now, I replied almost instantly but couldn’t meet for a week, he sold them the night before I could get them :(

Rob551133's Completed Build: First build let me know what you guys think

bengy22 4 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Any reason you went with these parts? Like why did you go with the more expensive case, cpu, liquid cooler but then only go with a 980? Also why a 980, did you get a good deal for a used one?
