Description

I wasnt satisfied with my AMD build and a little disappointed by Ryzen...so I tore it down and went Intel. Also I swapped out the red led fans for Thermaltake Ring type

Why were you disappointed in Ryzen?

Maybe he is a gamer?

Don't know why your comment is being dumped on.

If someone spends 90% of their time gaming/web browsing/doing other tasks that are largely single threaded then higher core clock speeds will benefit them greater than higher core counts. Ryzen's been great for multicore processes but let's not act like they're some mighty usurper across the board when cheaper Intel offerings are still recommended for gaming.

That was the reason I went with intel instead of Ryzen because the games I play and I great majority of today's games still run better with single threaded cpus.

I am just saying that if you overclocked a 1700 with that deepcool captain you way get better performance then that specific I7.

The locked i7 specifically sure.

That said, the 1700 is also more expensive than the locked i7. Not to mention, what if OP didn't plan on overclocking? And if he did, why not just spring a little extra further then for the 7700k, with much higher clock speeds than the 1700? Not trying to slam Ryzen here, I'm just saying I personally don't see why someone would get one if they don't plan to do many multicore tasks.

True but the I7 unlocked is 50 more expensive then the locked. This kinda all depends if he wants to overclock. But my main question is why he was disappointed.

Ryzen is still good for gaming.

But not as good as intel's offerings as Kabylake still has a IPC and Clockspeed advantage.

Sure I guess I am into video editing so I jumped on ryzen.

That was Ryzen's intended purpose. Atleast for the R7s.

So how would you rate having a couple of 480's in CF?

I have to agree. A 7700 having to run off mechanical drives is a travesty. A 250g SATA SSD will give you MASSIVE returns on your money, and considering that Motherboard has 2 m.2 slots, there is no reason that your not using one.
300 bucks on top end processor power, but 80 bucks worth of fast storage for your C drive will change your life.

Seriously, seeing a picture of this case interior always gets me thinking its a Deepcool TESSERACT

I just googled that case. They are pretty similar on the interior

Right tho? It almost seems like the only difference between the two is that the 100r doesn't have the SSD bays between the HDD and Disc Drive bays.

Out of curiosity, why not go dual 8GB versions? That's what I did for my CF build.

Nice build, how would you rate the Mobo? I am thinking about the same or similar Gigabyte board.

Hi, Your CPU gets 4.2GHz on all cores while gaming or when doing intensive tasks?

At 1080p yes Intel wins but at higher resolutions not really... pretty much at par with each other or somewhat little difference

guessing the 850watt evga psu only works with this build because its not a k processor and youre not overclocking? lol im thinking about this psu but I wanna add a second rx480 strix and 5ghz on my 7700k not sure if it can handle
