I'd not get that AIO - its too expensive for the small rad. Get a H100i or H110i - if you want NZXT get the Kraken X61. You can throw out anything but 2 x Corsair - ML140 Pro LED 97.0 CFM 140mm Fan really - a big rad as exhaust and 2 for intake in the front are more than enough. Rather spend more money a bigger SSD or more HDD storage.

thats something else... should get the 980ti then - still would go for the i5-7600k

I'd suggest you get 32 gigs of RAM @3200mhz. If you want to OC -> go AIO - if you do not want to - take the stock cooler IMO.

I'd go for the 550W Supernova G2 - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/qYTrxr/evga-power-supply-220g20550y1 even though ist 5$ more. You can remove that CPU Cooler as the Ryzen stock cooler is good enough - even for a little OC - might want to get a board that has a bit more features for future upgradeability? Maybe even X370?

Do you own the 980ti? I would not recommend buying one right now. A 1080 outperforms a 980ti - http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-980-Ti-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1080/3439vs3603.

If you own the 980ti already - a i5-7600k would be something future proof I could recommend - http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-7600K-vs-Intel-Core-i5-6600K/3885vs3503

Depends on what you want to achieve?! 1080p gaming for graphic intensive games - at most a year. If you do not care that much about the looks maybe 2?

Worth the upgrade to 1050ti: YES! I like the build - just how I would build a Budget build. If you have any bucks left - try to get a small SSD for your OS / most used programs to speed things up a bit. You could save a bit on the case but thats preference.

you should be able to game at 1080p with decent quality settings with this build, but dont expect miracles. I'd wait for GPU prices to drop.

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

If you do not want to upgrade every Generation you should consider getting a SOLID - case, psu and motherboard. You did that for the case and psu part, but your motherboard is really low-mid tier. Also: Your 3000mhz RAM will only run at 2400mhz as your Motherboard does not allow OC. Same for the CPU - you will not be able to OC even a single mhz with that Motherboard. You should consider getting a Z270 Motherboard: (https://pcpartpicker.com/search/?q=Z270+ATX+ASUS) Everything else looks fine to me.

Forum Topic "First Build"

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

If you only pick the high end of components and money is not an issue this is the build for you. Might want to consider 3200mhz RAM for a tiny bit of performance boost - Ryzen loves RAM frequencies around 3000-3200mhz.

Put in a 128 SSD for your OS / most used programs and your build is good to go.

Why would even consider a 600 watt PSU, when you have no GPU and run a non-oc i3? You Need 300 watt AT MOST for this build. Would consider going i3-7100 for the better integrated graphics.

Pretty weak build - whats the Goal you want to accomplish with this build?

Forum Topic "Ryzen 5 1600 Build + First time builder advice!"

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 3 days ago

If you want to be PC building 10 years down the line - get a solid: case, motherboard, psu, pair of ram - as these are the parts that mostly live the longest while cpu and gpu need to be replaced for better ones down the line. As for storage - some live 5+ years down the line while others do not.

Regarding your build: The Ryzen cooler is fine, even with a little OC. Get 3000mhz RAM for performance boost without spending too much. I do not know Deepcool as a brand, but if you find good reviews for the case/psu go for it. I personally can recommend you corsair from my experience. Anything with 80+ bronze or more certification and being fully modular should be pretty good for future upgrades and should live long enough. I do not know how much you are willing to spent, but with X370 boards coming on the market i‘d suggest you get one while there are promotions for it. It will serve you many years down the line. Do not get me wrong the B350 is still solid!

Forum Topic "Before I buy..."

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 4 days ago

solid! A slight upgrade could be achieved by adding 3200mhz RAM, but thats reaaaally minor. Not sure if VR game development needs alot of RAM, would maybe consider going 32 gigs then.

Forum Topic "Looking for the perfect fit"

jix_91 1 Build 2 points 4 days ago

I noticed, that most of the time the PSU is the main factor for noise. My build has your same GPU (pretty silent). But I use a H110i from Corsair as CPU cooler (pretty silent imo!) and a RM750i from Corsair (its a semi-passive PSU) meaning - the Fan of it only turns on under heavy load which I had never happen till now (6 months of usage). I tested the fan once to see if it will spin at all.

Forum Topic "First PC build, opinions/advice?"

jix_91 1 Build 2 points 4 days ago

You do not really need 32 gigs of RAM for gaming. Also having a 1TB NVME SSD is not what I would recommend in price/performance ratio. A 650 watt PSU should be just fine for your components, but 750 watt is ok too.

With these components you could easily shoot for a 2560x1440 144hz monitor and still be fine. ACER and ASUS have those in their lineup (with G-Sync)

Forum Topic "building my first pc"

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 4 days ago

If you want to upgrade your GPU in the future to a 1080 or 1080Ti you should consider a PSU with around 600 watt.

Also - you should consider RAM with 3000-3200mhz as Ryzen benefits a lot from higher clockspeed RAM. You can save the 23$ on the cooler as the stock cooler for the Ryzen 5 is really nice.

To get a huge speedup you should include an SSD for your OS / most used programs.

Forum Topic "Looking for the perfect fit"

jix_91 1 Build 2 points 4 days ago

Not a single thing I would change personally. Should fit just fine. PSU offers enough wattage. If you want to guarantee a better OC in the future might want to get an AIO with a 240mm+ radiator (Corsair H100i or H110i should fit perfectly)

Forum Topic "Old Computer Bust - New custom Build with Salvaged parts"

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 4 days ago

If you got with the 7700K (OC capability) you might want to get a motherboard thats better for OC (Z270 lineup) - and include some 2400mhz-3000mhz RAM.

Forum Topic "Budget Gaming PC for 45 year old Console Gamer"

jix_91 1 Build 0 points 5 days ago

might want to spend a little more on the PSU (EVGA, Corsair, beQuiet! and Seasonic are somewhat remarkable brands) - everything else is fine.

Forum Topic "First ever PC build almost complete need opinions"

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 5 days ago

As for RAM you could get Corsair LPX 16 gigs 3200mhz for a tad bit of better performance, but thats it. Storage is perfectly fine.

Nice build - if you want to save some Money wait until the 1080ti Drops in Price and invest into the higher end of GPUs and your build will last you a solid 3 years.

Storage: Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Storage: Samsung - 960 EVO 500GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive Why exactly do you have a 500GB M.2 SSD and a 250GB 2.5" SSD?

I do not know the CPU Cooler, but I think you would benefit greatly from an AIO (Corsair H100i / H110i or NZXT Kranken X61/62)

Your Case is HUGE and has 2 Fans preinstalled - I would not buy the Case Fan: Noctua - NF-R8 redux-1800 PWM 31.4 CFM 80mm Fan as it is really loud and you would not benefit alot from a 80mm fan.

Everything else looks solid to me.

Garbage PSU, SSD & RAM. The CPU cooler is not needed as the stock one is good enough!

build a ryzen build not intel if you want to stream.

Ryzen5-1600 - 16 gigs of ram (3000mhz) and get a SSD.

Forum Topic "Thoughts gaming PC parts list. $1000 budget"

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 6 days ago

So you buy a motherboard dedicated to OC and get a locked CPU? You should either get the 7700k or get a B250 board. Also - the H100i is way overkill and your case has plenty of room for a decent air cooler like this (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/93Crxr/cryorig-cpu-cooler-h7). Everything else looks fine to me. I'd spent a little extra on a better SSD - maybe 850 Evo from Samsung.

Can not recommend the HDD you are using. Get a WD Blue maybe? Also - get 3200mhz RAM if possible.

You could save 80$ on the CPU Cooler as the stock one is good enough. From that Money get RAM with 3200mhz - it will benefit your CPU alot!

If you do not plan on watercooling / heavy OC / SLI the PSU is way Overkill. Even for watercoolin 750watts would be enough. Everything else Looks fine.

10/10 would build. Really nice! Like the case!

Forum Topic "Looking for opinions on first PC build"

jix_91 1 Build 2 points 7 days ago

Corsair LPX 16 Gigs 2400-3200mhz should be your best deal.

Well if you want a really good case go for it. How much less is the Corsair 750D for you? It's a really good case also.

PSU is not way overkill - 550 watts should be fine though if you can save some money there go for it. 80plus gold is pretty neat though.

Forum Topic "Streaming PC build"

Option 2 all the way dude.

Forum Topic "Looking for opinions on first PC build"

jix_91 1 Build 2 points 7 days ago

Youd want atleast 2400mhz RAM tbh.

The M.2 SSD should be enough for your most used programs & OS - you can get a regular 2-3 TB HDD instead of the 850 EVO - (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/j28H99/seagate-barracuda-3tb-35-7200rpm-internal-hard-drive-st3000dm008) this should be good

Also - you can definitly save some buck on the case - that thing is daaamn expensive.

I'd suggest you get a 1080 at least or even 1080Ti to match the rest of the builds quality...

Forum Topic "Need Opinions on This Build"

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 7 days ago

why do you need 32? 16 gigs is more than enough in most cases. You did not give any explanation so I assumed its a typical newbie mistake to get as much RAM as possible.

CPU: Originally wanted to go with an i5-7500 but the R5 1600 is supposedly better? -> depends on the purpose - pure gaming - go for Intel! streaming/video editing -> ryzen.

CPU Cooler: Is it really necessary or would the stock cooler be sufficient? -> Intels stock coolers are **** - Ryzen stock cooler is nice.

Motherboard: Was recommended to me, not sure if it's the best option -> a bit on the costly side but should be fine for the next 4 years (upgradeability)

RAM: open for suggestions -> 16 GB Corsair Vengeance 3200mhz for ryzen, Intel can be anything >=2400mhz

Storage: 250+ GB for the SSD and 2+ TB for the HDD, not sure about brands etc -> SSD - Samsung is a safe bet here - if you want a standard ssd go EVO 850 - if you want M.2 NVME Evo 960

Video Card: 1070 seems overpriced, so I plan on going with a 1080 - maybe TI if it fits in the budget -> 1080 at least for smooth 4k gaming! Also prices are way better for 1080 as you said.

Case: Should be not the hardest to build in since it's my first build, a side window would be nice, but i'm open for suggestions -> Fractal is fine, Corsair makes good ones to - if you want a really stylish one - Phanteks Enthoo Evolv

Power Supply: no clue about that -> at least 550w for intel, and 650w for Ryzen - anything with 80+ Bronze will do it SeaSonic, Evga, Corsair ones are a safe bet here

LOL and Overwatch will be fine with a 1050Ti. On GTA V / PUBG I have no concerns on low settings - Destiny however I am not sure if a 1050Ti will perform the way you want. BUT a 1050Ti gives you more bang for the buck then a 1060 I guess - I would spend another 50$ for the motherboard to ensure you can upgrade safely in the upcoming months/years and get a cheap X370 board.

thats why I asked, why you need the i5-7600K (<- the K indicates you can overclock it!) at all.

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 9 days ago

you could really save some bucks on the CPU - why you need the unlocked i5-7600k when your motherboard is not even good for overclocking... as well as your cooler. Maybe get a Intel - Pentium G4560 3.5GHz Dual-Core Processor and a GTX 1060 or 1070.
