Nice build though I personally would have gone with a b350 board and a better CPU.

Nice build, but aren't you meant to use different DIMM slots for dual channel RAM?

HOW IN THE F***.....4.4GHZ?!?!?!

Anyways my dude, nice build.

Weird that your LPX sticks have compatibility issues, they are renowned for being the most compatible. You may have to set timings, frequency and voltage manually to get the rated speed. There are many tutorials online for this, good luck!

Nice build btw, +1!

Nice build man! I would've pished the clock further though, 1.45 v is what AMD says is the max safe voltage level (dependant on cooling) that doesn't really affect longevity :)

Hey the 1600X is totally fine for gaming and with the RAM you've paired it with your frame times and 1% lows will be better on Ryzen than Intel. Also it means anything multi threaded (and future game titles) will love your extra cores (and threads, 7600K doesn't have hyperthreading). The only thin I would've done differently would be getting a 1600 over the 1600x. With overclocking they're essentially the same chip.

Very nice build! Have you tried OC'ing on that board yet? Just wondering how having only a 4 pin for the CPU will effect overclocks!

That cooler can more than handle 5.0ghz (or higher), the reason why your temps seem a little high is most likely due to MSI's gameboost feature feeding your CPU more voltage than it needs to be stable at that clock speed. Manual overclocking is the way to go my friend. This, however, is a very very nice looking build, nicely done!

Really nice build, only a couple things I'll mention. Perhaps slightly overkill on the motherboard? (unless you got a good deal for it) I might have also oriented the PSU with the fan facing down so that it intakes fresh air from the outside, and possibly higher frequency RAM for certain titles like GTA5 and The Witcher 3 as it can give a 15-20fps boost. But really nice build and I love the clean black style!

It does come with one, as well as HDMI if I remember correctly.

It's really awesome, I mean if you need Gsync or FreeSync then this isn't for you, I was able to overclock the monitor to 74hz so I could achieve 74 FPS if I wanted to. The reason I went with this monitor was the insane price I got it for but it's actually really nice and won't disappoint in any way.

That gigabyte board will BCLK OC with a bios downgrade.

Are you going to be overclocking that 6500 then? Looks awesome :) +1

Not too bad at all, I recommend watching Dans tech review about it where he has a sound test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJJ7uUqt0nE

It's a really solid performer, no louder (possibly even quieter) than the founders edition, same PCB as founders, really cheap! :)

As in as budget as a GTX 1070 itx build could really get. XD Also includes monitor and peripherals :)

It's a Silversone AR06, the front intake fan is directing air straight into the finstack so it's actually surprisingly cool. It idles from about 28 C to 30 C and max temp I've recorded after 2 hours of BF1 gaming was 65 C. The GPU gets it's own fresh air from the side panel and then exhausts it all out the back of the case.

I was looking at the first pic, whoops. I think he's changed the description and parts list since as well.

Yeah I mean fair enough if that's why, just a lot of extra money to spend on something with astonishingly minimal gains (or even lower performance in some cases) that's all.

Just a question, why go with the unlocked/overclockable 6700k when you've bought a board that can't overclock? Otherwise nice build :)

I'm assuming your friend plans to upgrade that i5-6500 in the future right? Otherwise the Z170 board was a bit of a waste. Anyway love the build and love the combination of i5-6500 and GTX 1070 (It's beast!)

A very nice build and all awesome components, apart from the PSU where you can definitely get better for a similar price.

However I do REALLY like your build +1 (I'm going to be using the Air 240 in an upcoming build of mine)
