jl0021hk's Completed Build: X58 Reborn

mmcconkey 3 points 3 months ago

Pretty sure he's had the majority of these parts from actually reading the description. Also, kind of a crappy way of saying that.

I agree, I run a 980ti in 4k using Vulkan to play Dota 2 all the time. It would be nice if they would throw the 980ti or 1070 into these comparisons as well so I would know exactly where I stand with these new cards.

Cooltreeman's Completed Build: My friend helped me get my first PC

mmcconkey 2 points 6 months ago

That is definitely a sweet system, but totally lopsided with parts choices. Your friend was nice to help you, but dude really doesn't follow hardware or he wouldn't have you get an i9, 32gb RAM, and only a 1080 primarily for gaming. Enjoy your system as it will probably do everything you want and more for quite some time.

jokemantrade2's Completed Build: Ryzen-based NGS data/deep learning rig

mmcconkey 2 points 6 months ago

Forgive my ignorance, but I'm assuming that all of your deep learning is only happening on the GPU and not the CPU?? I ask since you went with the liquid cooler on GPU but air on CPU. Now while I have heard good things about that Noctua, I probably would have liquid cooled the CPU while I was at it, just because. I had to use the Kraken G10 on my 980ti with a 120mm Corsair AIO and I have to say that was a great investment, so I'm sure your 1080ti is running super cool with the 360. Anyway, nice build, but more pics would have been nice.

paiyan's Completed Build: ???? (Orange) by Stark Industries

mmcconkey 2 points 7 months ago

I've been really turned off by a lot of the featured builds here lately, but I must say that this build is totally feature worthy in my humble opinion. It is quite odd to not see a GPU in a build, but the work you put in has made quite the beautiful build. Congrats and keep up the good work.

That particular Xeon does have onboard graphics. Some do, they just aren't super common.

Upgrading from the 4690k to the 7600k is a SMALL upgrade, but it is quite doubtful that you'll notice the increase at all. The only thing that could be noticeable is if you do the upgrade and add an M.2 NVME SSD as they are insanely fast. But overall the 4690k is still a very good CPU and you should be fine pairing it with the 1070 or 1070ti.

Hyp36rmax's Completed Build: CaseLabs Bullet BH8: #dualSPEC-X

mmcconkey 1 point 12 months ago

While I've never been a fan of multiple GPUs, due to heat, power, and crappy game support, your rig does look very nice. As the others have asked, what exactly are you doing with this rig? It's super overkill for a home theater setup, so please elaborate on your usage.

coryhensen's Completed Build: Major upgrade

mmcconkey 3 points 12 months ago

How in the name of everything holy did you get a 7700k for less than $200 and an 850 EVO for $20???? Those GPUs, even though not super powerful are still more than $180 a piece. Please explain your pricing because it all sounds too good to be true.

Visp's Completed Build: StratagemCK

mmcconkey 1 point 12 months ago

You know, I've worked with that exact case while using a non-modular PSU and you are able to nicely wad up the cables and put them at the bottom of the 3.5 bay. Granted it isn't the most friendly case for management, but it is doable if you are willing to put a little time into it. It is nice to see old parts being used when they are still quite usable.

GT-Avalanche's Completed Build: Alienware Area51

mmcconkey 13 points 14 months ago

So you bought a prebuilt, took 3 potato pics, and gave no real description? Why waste your time? Yes it does have some decent components, but it also has some not good ones. I don't understand.

dizzin9's Completed Build: Smallie Biggs (7700K/1080 Ti/Nano S)

mmcconkey 2 points 22 months ago

Good looking build. In order to drop your temps you might need to dial down the voltage a little. I was able to get a 5ghz oc on my 7700k and while on air it was hitting 90C before I adjusted the voltages. After I set it to 1.345 (I think) temps dropped dramatically. I'll be upgrading to a Corsair H100i this week so hopefully I can really get my temps squared away. But once again, very nice build +1 from me.

mmcconkey 2 points 22 months ago

That was a very cool idea with the sticker. I had a build in this case until recently and it never occurred to me to do something like that. Definitely a +1 from me.

It's not really a "build" if it is store bought.

DinapeS's Completed Build: i7 5820K and Radeon HD7850

mmcconkey 1 point 22 months ago

Now I understand completely. Sometimes you have to go a piece at a time. Once again I think you did a nice job on the PC and good luck with getting your other components.

DinapeS's Completed Build: i7 5820K and Radeon HD7850

mmcconkey 2 points 22 months ago

I'm curious about this build, it seems a hair lopsided. Don't get me wrong, it looks nice, you did a good job. I'm just wondering why with an X99 build there is no SSD, a pretty old GPU, and a somewhat low end PSU. I can't talk much crap about the PSU, since I use that same one in one of my builds, but for a higher end X99 I'm surprised you didn't go with some sort of Gold certified PSU. Also if you could update some prices with what you paid for them and a better description I'm sure we'd all appreciate that. Thanks

702Wolfi's Completed Build: Alpine Joy

mmcconkey 2 points 22 months ago

That cable management is amazing, excellent work. Very nice overall setup, though I do think that a single 500gb SSD won't go very far with games/applications these day. Totally getting my +1.

monkeh88's Completed Build: Delta 4 PC (2017)

mmcconkey 1 point 23 months ago

This setup seems odd to me. Why so many small SSDs? Also, 2 PCIe SSDs? It would be nice to see some pictures that actually show us the build, so far it looks like you are trolling us with an odd conglomeration of parts. Don't mean to be a ****.

markandrews89's Completed Build: Second proper build

mmcconkey 1 point 23 months ago

Nice build and much love for the GTS250. I had one of them for years and gamed my little heart out with it. Once you are willing and able to upgrade, then you'll have a proper gaming machine. Very nice. 1 upvote for you.

Bee66's Completed Build: The DEE - (Shiny Charizard V3.0)

mmcconkey 1 point 24 months ago

Hey man, this looks damn good, but the pricetag on that case is insane! Most people don't spend that on an entire build. Like others have said, excellent cable management, awesome skull in the res, and congrats on the feature, but damn that price.

We HOPE Zen will be sweet and that it will make prices go down. I'm ready for a new build myself and that's what I'm waiting for as well.

derek.engelke's Completed Build: Corsair C70 vengeance build

mmcconkey 1 point 24 months ago

Nice build, more pics would be appreciated though. You are lucky as hell for winning that CPU, I'm jealous. I would definitely be looking into a 1440p or 4k monitor so you can let the GTX 1080 "stretch its legs" and show you what its got.

NYSE's Completed Build: Case Labs THW10 Intel 6950X w/ Dual TITAN XP

mmcconkey 2 points 26 months ago

I want to start off by saying that this is a beautiful PC, but I have some questions. First, if you are just doing trading and not rendering, video editing, or CAD, why go with the overpriced 6950X? Also, if you aren't doing any of the previously mentioned tasks or even gaming, why a Titan XP, let alone 2? Like I said, I like this a lot and mean no disrespect, but with you saying that its primary task is trading, I don't understand the spending of over $10k on a PC, unless you just have money to burn and were bored.

Valinnoris's Completed Build: SH0GUN - 50tb Dual Xeon Unraid Server

mmcconkey 0 points 28 months ago

Very nice server, I'm totally jealous. Quick question though, why spend the big money on the Noctua CPU coolers just to swap the fans? Wouldn't it have been financially better to buy a pair of 212 EVOs and swap the fans? Like I said, I do love what you've done, I just don't understand that part.
