Juancvalt's Completed Build: Evolv Shift 7700k 1080 ti and Kraken X42

Batmandrew 2 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

Does everything run ok since you’re only using a 450w psu with a 1080ti? I have a Aorus 1080ti in my full tower and I want this case but the only sff Psu I have is a 500w and looking through various forums and such, people say to have at least 600w. But you seem to have it working under 450w just fine. I just don’t want to buy another psu.

What's up with the mounting bracket for the CPU cooler? It's slanted like it was installed wrong. Like one mounting point is over the RAM slots.

I love that guy! I had him make a few custom grills for me and a custom acrylic window. He's such a nice guy and very fast.

Oh man I loved that pinball back in the day. Best built-in OS games next to Ski-Free.

Dang you must really like GW2 to spend 3k on a machine to play it on lol. Good build though. I keep meaning to pick up those Riing fans myself.

Why'd she go to the airport? Flying somewhere?

Great movie! ;)

Well like I said, he could switch them out for a better single one. I only did two because he has a multiple monitor setup already so I figured he likes it that way.

Hey man, I know some of these comments can seem harsh and take the wind out of your sails. Especially since it seems your're super excited about your new computer, but we're all just here to help. For the amount of money this build costs, there are definitely some alternative parts I would've gotten instead. I made a list if you want to take a look at it. The mouse and keyboard you could change up. I have that mouse and it works flawless for me so I just thought I'd share it. It's only $40 now too. I paid $60 I believe and that was on sale from $100 at the time. You can also switch out the 2 1080p monitors on the list for one bigger 1440p monitor. This GPU can handle it no sweat. I have the same 1070 and an Asus MG278Q 1440p monitor and it's great.

I tried to keep with your red/black theme on this list. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/6FtdgL

It's a weird problem but you have to enable vsync and the map stuttering goes away. I have a 7600k and gtx 1070 so I shouldn't have a problem with that game at all and I still got map stutter and it was bothering me so much because I spent all this money on a computer and it stuttered on a map lol then enabled vsync and its smooth as butter.

I had never never seen this case before now and thought you hollowed out a guitar amp lol. Great job :)

What's the name of that thing anyway? I have the same case so now I know it will look awesome in it haha

redzonefresh's Completed Build: First Build BLACK/RED

Batmandrew 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

I would love to BS you and say I did all those settings and got 60+ fps lol but I won't. You're right. I got an average of probably 20-21fps. It's because of the frame scaling. However, use the same settings but turn off frame scaling, go into nvidia control panel under 3d settings and turn on DSR 2x native resolution (I have a 1440p monitor so this would make it 4k DSR) then restart the game and change the resolution to higher than your monitor then try it. It's the same process as frame scaling but it's not done by the game. I got a high of 47 fps and an average of about 35 fps. However it is using a little over 6GB of VRAM and your 980Ti's only have 6GB so I'm not sure how well it would work on your it give it a try and play around with it. The game is definitely playable "maxed" out. :)

This is a pretty capable PC for under $900. Kudos! Such irony though it's Zelda themed on a PC with an Xbox controller. ;) I love that you have that cartridge as an external HDD.
I made a similar one with the same case and controller. I painted the case to match the controller. You can check it out on my builds if you like! I'm currently making a Captain America themed build for my brother using this case.

Batmandrew 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

I actually get between 70-90 fps in GTA V on my 1070 at 1440p maxed out. I think GTA V is a CPU intensive game so my 6800k probably helps out a lot.

Batmandrew 2 Builds 2 points 33 months ago

I have a GTX 1070 and I think it's all the power I need for a good while. I game at 1440p and this does just fine maxed out in all my games like Overwatch, Witcher 3, Arkham Knight, and GTA V. So at 1080p it should kill any game you throw at it.

Very nice build. I was wondering though, what are your temps? I just got the same case and noticed the temps are a little higher than my in my old case.... but man this case is sexy on a budget!

Scrounger's Completed Build: Skylake Failure!

Batmandrew 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

Actually I just looked at mine too and you're right, there aren't any. I have the z170-mx gaming 5 miniITX board which I'm assuming is the smaller version of yours? Hmmm... did you make sure legacy USB is enabled in BIOS so it doesn't shut off the ports during boot up? It's possible that might be it.

Batmandrew 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

I have an LG external USB dvd writer. I found that you can't use the USB 3.0 ports until after the drivers for them are installed (after windows is set up) so I had to use the 2.0 ports when I connected the DVD drive. That might be why yours wasn't detecting anything plugged in.

Batmandrew 2 Builds 1 point 38 months ago

I had no idea there was a Sktlake/Windows 7 issue. When I made my i3-6100 build I installed Windows 7 on it with no problem. I mean I only did it to get the free Windows 10 upgrade but for the initial 7 install it went very smooth.

jtrias21's Completed Build: White Raven Asuna (SilverStone RVZ02, 980 Ti, 1440p gaming)

Just a question, how did you go about painting the slide cover and Raven logo and make it look crisp and clean?

I'll probably do the usual Noctua for this build. People seem to speak highly of it.

Batmandrew submitter 2 Builds 2 points 39 months ago

I'm probably just going to go for the i7. I love the performance of them haha.

I think the heat may just be from how small the case is with no extra fan support and it being in a stock cooler.

I actually haven't tried my Dolphin emulator. I think I'll give it a go haha. Thanks for the feedback :)

Batmandrew's Completed Build: PlayBox

Batmandrew submitter 2 Builds 1 point 39 months ago

It's cool. I appreciate feedback :) To answer your questions: 1) I got this board because it was on sale for $130 and as I said, I have the same z97 counterpart for my oth computer and I like it. The board it's self I don't plan on changing the cpu I will change in the next couple months to an unlocked i5 or i7. 2) Yes there is some bottlenecking going on but it's nothing too serious. 3) Again, it's a placeholder cpu until I get a better one. 4) you are right about that but it all came to my budget. This drive was half the cost of the SSHD I actually wanted of the same size. 5) As it stands, it doesn't but when I upgrade the cpu, it will be welcomed. Plus the difference in price from the 450w was $5 so why not?

Aww man! I thought I was gonna be to first one to post a White Raven up here! lol I just got the case but my other half won't let me have it until Christmas :/ This is a really nice build though and now I know how many coats of paint to use ;) Did you use any primer or anything and is it a gloss or matte? +100 man, it looks really awesome!
