Welcome back. Nice job! I see 2 extra fans in the pic not on parts list. What are they?
More pics please.
Very nice parts and build. Cingratulations. Amazing prices too. I would have gone with a 27" or 34" monitor. 1 pt from me.
Nice build. I bet it works well at 2K with High settings. How did you get that GPU for that $? Most are in the $450 range.
Nice parts and build. Congrats!
I would love to see.a few closeup pics added.
Awesome build and parts. Congratulations!
It should get you thru your college years and beyond! Enjoy. 1 point from me.
Awesome GPU and build! 1 pt from me.
Very nice of you to do this for him. Nice CPU, GPU and Ram! Why no SSD? Are you carrying some kind or grudge?
16 cores, 32 threads? Thats one bad *** machine!. Enjoy.
Absolutely beautiful. Enjoy!
I bought it from V1 Tech. It did not stick well to the back so its kind of sitting there, which is fine.
Good idea pairing with your home AV system. I bet it looks and sounds awesome!
Have you tried turbo mode? OCing?
You should be at least up to 4.3 with that cooler, possibly stable at 4.5.
You should be able to run the CPU at 4.5 or higher. Have you tried?
What speed do you run your CPU?
How do you get 4.2 on all cores using the stock cooler?
Has it been stable?
Very nice build in a small case. That RTX should handle the video decoding for streaming on its own without the need for a second PC. Enjoy!
This SHOULD be featured!
Holy Cow! This machine has more lights than a 6:00 AM FBI raid at a peaceful residence! Absolutely beautiful. I changed mine from tainbow to white to match my B&W build. Enjoy!
I just saw on the news that the avg tax return will be about $1,650 this year. I always owe and am guessing I will owe that amt.
When buying higher speed RAM you should buy it in one kit because each kit is tested on ots own and not guaranteed to work with other kits, even if they are the same part number from the same vendor.
Nice parts selection for the purpose. Pics are very good too. I bet you can get work done in half the time now. Congratulations!
What did you chose as a display?
Nice parts and build. I suggest adding a 500 GB or large SSD for video editing as disc IO can be intense at times. Enjoy!
I have seen reports that OBS does the encoding in the GPU. I wonder why other streaming software does not offer the same feature. It would remove the need for a second PC.
Very nice. What Asus GPU is that? I don't see it on your parts list.
That was written last June well before RTX cards were released.
NVIDIE and many Streamers have reported that the RTX cards handle thr video encoding just fine with only a drop of a few fps when streaming.
Interesting build and purpose. What do you think about NVIDIA claims that a streaming PC is not needed with their RTX GPUs?
If 8k is 4x res of 4k does 4k + 4K = 6K?
NVIDIA has been allowing freesync support in their drivers for several months now. However, most freesync monitors dont pass their rigid standards.
Dual GPUs in SLI I presume? What apps make use of that? And why the diff monitors?
Q: Does 4K + 4K = 8K?
I'll be back!
Nice parts and case. I like it. I bet you can really drive up the frame rates on that monitor. Have you tried enabling freesync yet to see how it performs?
I LOVE B&W builds and built my first one in Nov.
Awesome GPU and matching display. I'm guessing some games play that fast on 2K high settings. If just for gaming I would have gone for a faster 4 core CPU instead.
Amazing parts list. I cant wait to view the pics. I would love to see some BMs from it. I bet that RAM just purs like a Lambo on the Audobon. Ya got a point from me.
Nice parts and build. Rumor has it the RTX cards stream much better than their GTX equivalents. Enjoy!
Super sexy case and nice build. I would love to see more pics of the inside of the case. Enjoy!
Nice build and parts. Congrats on finally getting it right. That case is big enough to make a man cave. I love it! Enjoy.
Same process to access RGB on Wraith Prism cooler. However you have to unplug the other connector to change the color.
Nice parts for a $1K build. How well does it stream?
OMG, I love how that GPU looks and performs. All I could afford on Nov was an Asus GTX 1070 Dual that I had to order a custom backplate for. Still a big upgrade from my 950 TI. Maybe I will upgrade to that or the 3080 in a few years. Time will tell. Enjoy!
If not too much trouble, please lookup prices of similar used parts to get an idea of what they are worth, then add that to the cost build up.
Very nice parts and build! Can you change the colors on the RAM to match the case leds? They stick out like a sore thumb in the pics.
Nice build, parts and prices!
Those colors look rad in that all black case.
How is that RTX for streaming? Do you use a second PC for that? Do you use OBS?
Very nice selection of parts and pics. I also like the desk, gaming chair and dual monitor setup. Enjoy!
