nathanmaddux's Completed Build: Gaming and Production

woahwoahwilly 2 Builds 1 point 4 days ago

ps. i dont know how to delete the second 980ti on this list. it was my original plan to sli the two. but put the money into the monitor instead. figured it would be a better idea to play this one out a little longer and upgrade the gpu in a few generation when they are much better. because yea two liquid cooled 980ti would be awesome... but in 3 or 4 years one card could replace the pair and match in performance while being less taxing on the power bills.

You'll have to make sure the part list is saved, then edit the list and remove the second card. Then save it as is and update your build with the saved list. If it's not, you may just have to go hunting for the parts and redo it. That's why I save all of my lists.

He said he was planning on getting another one for SLI, but used the money on the monitor and couldn't figure out how to remove the second card from the list.

Why does my nose hair grow so fast

Bruh.

No choice but to +1 just for that.

Noice.

Best to use faster RAM on Ryzen, at least 3000 MHz. It's been proven that it'll help a lot with performance, or if not at least a little. Ryzen is speed hungry.

Quick note: The BQ series isn't actually that great, it's Andyson based which means that it's basically not very good. It's not just the brand, the build quality and OEM also matters.

Again...

The EVGA 500 W-series isn't actually that great. EVGA makes some not-so-great units and the 500 W is one of those. You'd want a SuperNova G2 or better (PLEASE DO NOT GET THE BQ SERIES, THEY ARE ANDYSON/HEC OEM AND BOTH OF THOSE BRANDS ARE PRETTY BAD) if you upgraded.

Wattage doesn't mean nearly as much as quality. You need wattage for parts; you need quality to not burn your house down. EVGA 500 W probably wont burn your house down. But you'd want a higher-rank unit just for the peace of mind.

Quick note: Corsair makes good power supplies - their green-label CX/CXM units are junk though. Thought I should let you know. Miles ahead of something like a Raidmax though.

Keep in mind this is NOT the exact case. The Vortex was just as close as I could get.

claanu's Completed Build: Raijintek Styx + Ryzen

woahwoahwilly 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

That PSU worries me a bit. At least it's not a Logisys or Coolmax, but it's also pretty dangerous. Even if it;s fine now, it'll probably die earlier than good-quality Corsair/EVGA/Seasonic power supplies. And when it fails, it'll likely take your PC with it. As in, kill all of the parts inside.

This is not aimed JUST at you, but rather anyone I see using a crap PSU. Too many people pay a lot for a PC and decide to trust a crap unit, because they think if it works it will work fine. But there's more to the funtion than just "it works." There's the quality of the components inside, and if they are bad quality, when they die, they might do some bad things. Keep that in mind.

Otherwise, +1.

woahwoahwilly 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Slower RAM apparently hurts performance quite a bit. Not sure how much - I design Ryzen-based computers, but I don't have a stable source of income (I still did my homework) and thus can't afford them much.

This may help a LITTLE bit: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3472692/fast-ram-ryzen.html

Didn't read very far into the thread.

woahwoahwilly 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

I'm loving the looks. Something to know is that you might want faster RAM, as Ryzen scales better with faster memory (DDR4-2933-DDR4-3300), but not too fast.

Holy crap. Crysis on an i7-8700K and GTX 1080 could barely manage 30FPS. Those results ARE from Crysis 3, though.

If that build sere mine, I would have velcroed a small enough UPS to the bottom and connected the AC adapter to it so I could run it on battery. Maybe use one of those cases I've heard about in a Techquickie video that have screens on them.

Like that would work anyways. Maybe it would. Maybe it wouldn't.

Great build though!

paulmg's Completed Build: G3930 - Just what I needed

woahwoahwilly 2 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

I'm gonna recommend that if you can't afford to upgrade that power supply then you should be careful with it. It may work fine now, but eventually, when it dies, it's not going to be a calm, silent death - it will most likely fry the entire system. I recommend a Corsair, EVGA, or Seasonic power supply. They die quietly, are mostly semi- or fully-modular so there are fewer cables and will last a lot longer.

But great build anyways. 9/10, you got my upvote.

One question, though. Why pair that tiny cooler with a space heater?

Every CPU has a risk of blue screening if you don't use ECC memory, which only certain CPUs support.

I'm sure your Ryzen 7 1800X can still cause a blue screen. Just because some people have these issues doesn't mean you DEFINITELY will.

Ah... the good old Phenom.

My dad's first build was the family PC our family used, and his gaming PC. Stupidly he used a Dynex PSU, but back to the point. The PC had a Semphron. He used some cheap board which has a model number I don't remember, and that died. He got a new board, and THEN the power supply started doing strange things. Luckily he replaced it before any damage could be done. He got a new AM3 board and got a Phenom II X2 B59, and that thing served him well. Also got an older Seasonic unit. M12II 520W, I believe. I think that unit is the reason why he's started going Seasonic. After the HDD died, a friend of his recommended he just got a new PC. The computer was relatively old, anyways. Thus the Space Heater was born. I have a completed build on it, but sadly no pics. Will get some next weekend assuming I have a camera.
