It means it has no input lag and I couldn't be happier about it. It's a good monitor, get it.
It's great. I bought it for the lack of input lag. I use it for both and I couldn't be happier with the lack of input lag.
If you need help with all of that send me a PM either here or reddit, I will gladly help you with talking about everything else you'll need for streaming. Or make another post, plenty of people with experience there. Cheers!
shhhhhhh it's a secret But I'm glad you like it! And I hope it serves you well with your twitch! You should put your username in the explanation though, to send people there.
This is a great build! I always like to see builds I saw on reddit appear here so I can see how they turned out. Good luck with this man! Hopefully it serves you well in streaming!
AMD is notorious for low idle temps, but it probably isn't very high from that, low 20's probably. Love the build though, GREAT budget.
Well at least you know what you have to do if you're super obsessed with low temps!!
16 C is still 60 F, if the surrounding air isn't that cool then it's impossible to have a chip temperature that low. I was simply talking about the 16 at idle, everything else is at least possible.
Anyways, enjoy the computer! It should suit you well!
I like the build, but I question your CPU temps. 16 C is probably colder than the surrounding air, which is pretty much impossible unless you're running an air conditioner on it, and AMD is known for its low temp reads. I know it's undervolted but you should download something like RealTemp or CPU-Z (I think it does temperature) to better monitor your temperatures.
Anyways, +1, I like the build.
I would say look at EVGA precision too. I used afterburner for a bit but I like EVGA's program better, it also seems more stable for me. Both are good programs, so you'll just have to see which you like better.
Also, +1 :D
+1 for SLI in ze cube also. I wish mine was 980ti's though, one can wish. Good build!
Solid build! Later on you'll have to post how you like the 390 after you've had it for a while, but I have heard nothing but good things about it. It is always nice to see new builders with cases that aren't a mess with wires.
I hope you enjoy it!
This looks awesome, very clean. I do have a question though, on the loop, why not go CPU>RAD>GPU>RAD? My thought is that the water could only get so cool going through the radiator, why not give each component fresh cool water rather than cooling the water twice in a row. Which maybe is a dumb question, but anyways, nice build. +1
there are 2 SLI bridges. This one is for the one with a lane between the two slots, it's the SLI long. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00X5X3LQY?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00
There is another one for motherboards without the gap, it's the 2-way SLI short on that same link. I don't know the exact length of the bridge
Wow, this is awesome. +1
What are the temps you're seeing for the GPU's??
Yeah every CPU you get should have a cooler with it. However, since I got the K version of the CPU I have my CPU overclocked and a stock cooler with an overclocked chip is just a bad idea. So I got the cooler to help keep the temps cooler. I also like the aesthetics of the liquid AIO coolers anyways and it doesn't have a giant cooler sticking out, but that's just my preference.
So basically it's only needed since I overclocked the CPU, it isn't necessary if you don't plan on overclocking. And we were all new at it once, I'm still learning things so no worries there!
I really like it! The bios is typical BIOS, easy to navigate and use, and i've had no other issues other than the box came without mounting screws. Thankfully I still had some mounting screws left over so that wasn't a big deal to me, but i really like the look of it and everything
Thank you :D it's definitely well worth it!
the NZXT Hue has everything you need. It comes with a long LED strip, it wrapped completely around my case and a little extra, it comes with cables that attach somehow to power the strip too. I don't remember exactly how it connects, i assume it's a molex because I put them in a while ago but I know that if you buy the Hue, you'll get everything you need! And hopefully you have a 5.25 bay since you need one for the controller.
It is an intake fan. I put that in there when I was trying different fans to see which I like. It also makes sure I have a positive airflow in the case. There is a dust filter right under it but you can't really tell.
Considering that he would have to upgrade the PSU to at least a 1000W PSU, absolutely. The only benefit having 390 xfire is at 4K. but if you were gaming at 4k the 390 xfire could arguably be too little depending on the game.
i run dual 970's in my rig and it runs 100+ FPS on ultra high settings as well as ultra tessellation settings on Unigine Heaven Benchmark. 970's are not as bad as some people like to make them seem with the VRAM thing. I have never had an issue with it and I love them. Are there better cards, yes, but they are still a great purchase for the price.
I could've, yes, and originally I had an AMD setup, but she didn't want the AMD and it was ultimately her money so that was the reason we went Intel. It was a loose budget, and she's still thrilled with it so I'm okay with it! Thanks for the suggestion though :)
Do some research on it, but I wouldn't take one person's negative opinion and run with it. There are a lot of good things about that case too. I haven't researched the 980 ti much, although I would love one, but 750W is a good amount, may want to go with 850W if you want to be absolutely safe
NZXT S340 is a great case, I'd recommend it
The case came with 2 stock, 140 mm white LED fans you see in the picture. They provided adequate airflow and my temps weren't bad. However, they made quite a negative pressure in the case so the case was very dusty, as the only dust filter is on the front of the case. Since I didn't want the dust to buildup that bad, I now have a fan controller, 3 120 mm fans on the front, which aren't LED, and 1 120 mm fan sitting over the unused hard drive bay at the bottom of the case. I bought a dust filter for this and it works great! The fan itself I just used 4 long screws, and it fit perfectly over the existing racks used to slide in the hard drive. I'm not sure what fan I have down there, but I can get you the name later if you'd like. Up front I put 3 corsair AF series fans
From microcenter where I bought it they had one that came with the white LED's, i do not know if they all do though. I've actually changed the fans since though to 3 up front so I could get more airflow in the case
Octane rendering is GPU rendering. Most of the time it is CPU. But not what he's doing
ouch, expensive mistake, damn ebay. But the ones you mentioned are still just a TN panel. I would assume, granted I don't know I don't do video or image editing, that an IPS would be more desirable. Is the G-sync worth that much for the video editing part? If so, why not one G-sync monitor and one IPS?
Again, just curious! Thanks for the response though :)
Love the build, I wish I had a computer this powerful. I do have one question though, you do video editing and (possibly?) some image editing, so why get TN panel 4k monitors? Maybe that model is different but from what I understand most TN panel monitors are nowhere near the color capabilities of an IPS monitor, so why TN over IPS really?
DO'oh. just assumed. last time I do that :p
all good :D Just finished a build in it that's why I commented. Love your build! Makes me want more fans..... Did you just drill screw holes into the metal at the bottom to mount those fans? I was actually thinking about doing that today
in the other side of that case. The way the case is designed it hides the PSU, SSD's, and 5.25 things in the other side. It makes cable management a breeze!!
"Hey how big is your computer?"
"Oh it's 4 coke cans long by 4 coke cans wide by 2 coke cans high"
Which is really tiny and I like it! +1
pictures of the finished inside with everything stalled would be nice though.
generally USB as a boot stick. That's what I did for mine, pretty easy to do. granted you need another PC to get the boot and installation files but most people have one on hand or can get one
If she ever gets too hot I cool her down with 2 nice big bowls of tap water ;) I know most people use some fancy liquid to cool but I've found water works just as well.
it's best if I don't go into detail about that part :p
Thank you :) That was the hope!! cpu and gpu are awesome
Her money, and her father had input in the build and didn't want AMD. The first mock up of this build had AMD processor and GPU, but he didn't want AMD so it was switched. The 960 is a good card, and will do what it needs to do. Not my money! I just built it :)
It's great! she really loves it and I liked building with it. The boot times from this computer using intel's quickboot and MSI's Fastboot are amazing. It boots up from off in 5 seconds, which is crazy. I'd recommend they motherboard definitely
Are you talking to me or the op? Because if you're talking to me I don't know what you're really talking about....
okay so your psu is upside down, did you intentionally do that? You also have 2 960 listed which 1, i don't understand why you'd get 2 960's over 1 970. could you elaborate on that? Also, are you still trying to obtain parts or is this whole thing built you just didn't upload a finished picture. I'm very curious.
I love this build. I am in the process of doing pretty much the same thing in the same case except with white. One question, why would you add another 16gb of RAM? If this is purely a gaming rig I don't think you'd need it. Unless you plan on using this for 3D rendering or something I don't think that would be a worthwhile investment.
Also, how is the sound with that thing sitting right next to you? I've heard some complaints about the noise being loud.
Anyways, great build!! Awesome cable management. +1 from me
it works great! She loves it! it runs everything she wants to at a decent enough fps when she runs games. I'd recommend it!
it amazes me how many people look at the pictures and/or part list and then go an comment without reading the description. Good build! I hope it serves you well!
Hence the quotes.
Wow, can't believe I did that. It's in the description now thanks. FailFish
I know they're unbalanced. I did it on purpose. I thought about AMD, but she told me she wanted Intel and an i7 will do just fine. It's her money ultimately so I listened where she had input. Thanks though:)
