Calm down man. I wasn't getting salty. I'm not huge into benchmarks I just go by how smooth games are when I play them. No doubt an i7 is better for gaming because of it's IPC and the fact that gaming doesn't utilize all of the 1700s cores. Then again the i5 is better purely at gaming than the 1700 as well. Mo money mo cores.
That's odd. I never have a problem with FPS running a Ryzen 1700 AND a 1080ti FTW3 (check my build if you think I am making this up) on a 1440p moniotor. The thing is while the i7 7700k is the undisputed king of pretty much everything the 1700 (and 1700x) are no slouches when it comes to gaming so saying concerably (btw not a word) better for games is only true for extremely high refresh rate monitors at 1080p. Anything above 1080p maxed out will bottleneck the 1080ti long before the processor (again speaking from experience).
it's not a Playstation
Most of this thread is literally about his processor choice. Just admire his work seeing as this is his first build. That being said why did you go with an FX processor? (kidding of course lol)
Well TBH, I've never had tempered glass before either. The acrylic window has small but noticable scratches now. The pictures don't show them but they're there. Tempered glass was what I really wanted but this case was what I wanted the most. If this case had a tempered glass window it would be the best case in my opinion. For the price it should have tempered glass tho. Tempered glass is way better tho yes.
I actually did and before I was getting 2400mhz after upgrade couldn't even get that. It's my fault though cause I didn't spend the extra money to get the Ryzen tested ram. Oh well until next bios comes out. Perhaps running in single channel is the cause of the low frequency stability. Guess I need to drop another $150 for that extra ram module.
Why? I built a pc for upgrading and wanted dual channel 16GB modules in the future. I UNDERSTAND the benefits of dual channel on a dual channel motherboard. I find no problem running anything with single channel. Considering I can't get the ram stable at the advertised 3200mhz dual channel is the least of my worries now.
Not yet as I don't need the power and don't want to hassle with it
Dat description tho. Why did you go with an older gen card?
Great build. How is that case? It is a good price but the reviews are ehhh for it
Great build. I recommend fixing the cpu fan orientation. It annoyed me to no end so I just got a screwdriver and voila. Takes like 10 mins and makes a world of difference.
Good choice with the evga 1070. My favorite aftermarket GPU brand hands down. I've honestly never heard of that case before tho. That psu gives you a lot of headroom for that card. Good thinking doing that and not skimping on a cheaper psu and regretting it in the future.
So you get 90 fps in pubg at 1440p? I'm guessing you aren't maxing out all settings. I have a gtx 1080ti and at 1440p max settings I get 70 fps because of it's unoptimized nature
I agree with you. That bothers me
Difference? The Rev 2 comes with am4 bracket as well as what the Rev 1 comes with
Yeah, that's if he could find a 1060 or 1070 new for normal prices now, which he won't
I'm honestly surprised you even found a 1060...
You think, huh, nice PC, then see the price and are like, oh that's why it looks so nice
I found a video online. It is so easy. Thanks!
Love the cooler. That case is boss.
Tip: If you're OCD like me and you don't like the AMD logo on the side, all you have to do to get it to the top is get a Phillips screw driver and unscrew the fan and spin it around, then screw the fan back on to the heatsink. That simple. YouTube video link below.
Thanks for the reply. I wish I could get mine to run at 3200. I heard that even with the same ram different systems might not get the same speeds. I hope the next bios does the trick.
Nice build! Isn't the tiachi great? I was originally going to get the ram you got but wanted just one 16gb module so I could upgrade later on to 32gb for dual channel but seeing that you got yours running at 3200 I wish I would've stuck with that ram instead. Did you adjust the voltage at all or is that stock voltage that you got it to run 3200 on? I didn't adjust the voltage so maybe that was the problem
Same. Had an fx 6300 and gtx 960
Also saw your build. Nice!
P.S. the newest bios came out already for ASRock. Got em then couldn't get the memory to run at 2400 again so I flashed back the previous bios and am going to wait for the next one. Note I didn't adjust voltage
There is only one type. It has a removable 8 pin connector as well as one that slides on a rail so you have some room to move it on the side
I have that PSU. Kudos for sticking with the color scheme.
Nice build but isn't a Corsair H100i a tad bit overkill for an i3? Maybe would've been better off with a Cooler Master hyper 212 Evo or if you were dead set on liquid cooling a Corsair H55, H60 or H75 to save some money over the H100i.
