In terms of ease of build, for a first timer, it was very easy and logical.
It looks good as well.
Airflow so far has not been spectacular but has done a pretty good job considering ambient where i live is 30 deg C. Sometimes the fans just ramp up to move more air.
Anyway so far so good.
For the price as well it's sturdy and well built.
Recording as in streaming games?? if that's what you are asking, well i never tried.
I really do light gaming (insurgency, tomb raider). for those it's good.
from what I know, cores would be limited for playing + streaming. maybe a i7 8700k would do a better job.
thanks ! :)
hmm depends on the modules you use. i got the LPX from corsair because of the low height clearance. if your kit is low profile, you should not have any problems. on my install, i raised the fan a bit to get full clearance.
from my research (before i ordered my parts), the 8700 should run just fine on it! since you won't OC it, you'll get awesome temps with it. i boost all my cores (6) to 4.6ghz at all times.. at idle i'm on 40-45 and load never above 80. i still have a lot of headroom on my fan rpms in the case and the cooler
and this kit looks amazing!
hope this helps.
in this case replace the GB one with a custom one?
Because i did undervolt down to 1030.. mixed results really. It is stable and the gain is that i don't have mhz drops on either mem clock or gpu (brilliant)... but heat and fans are just about the same... even consumes more watts (HWMonitor).
Awesome! thanks for the info.
awesome build man!
could you help me out with a couple of questions? i'm studying (youtube, forums etc) to migrate my old *** imac to a ryzen pc (picture editing with lr is just a beeatch on the mac) and the in win 301 just fits as a case!
couple of things on what the reviewers say but would prefer real user experience....with regards to the air flow...
1. if i used 2 x SP fans in the front as intake, would that help fight against the cable clutter blocking the vents (i dont see how many less cables you can put). so 2 statics in the front and 1 AF in the rear..
my planned build (im in a remote island in the indian ocean, so getting parts is hard with just my shipping cost and tax getting to around 160usd) is the cheapest i could get with most bang per buck...
ryzen 1700 with the wraith cooler
16gb flare x or corsair lpx
gigabyte AB350M mobo
evo 950 nvme (less sata cables)
msi 1060 3gb gaming x
my goal is total silence (well most possible). i have studio monitors for sound, so i listen at low levels most of the time, my imac fans are killing me lol
thanks and sorry for long post.
