So clean it's bald and sells me sponges +1
No OC on the 9900k? +1
RAM speed beyond about 3200-3600 mhz starts to not really matter that much, but the high latencies on that kit would definitely have a negative impact on performance. That, combined with the lower amount of RAM (I'm assuming with that kind of CPU power he's doing more workstation stuff than gaming), might end up giving him little to no performance gain.
So you're telling me that that CPU waterblock basically has a screen on it . . .
pretty lights . . .
Yeah, sorry about that, I said the thing wrong, it still should be flipped so that it's not taking air in from the case
Unless that's going to be on a carpet, I'd flip the PSU around so that the hot air is being blown out of the case. Other than that, great PC +1
I don't know for sure, but I think maybe he was trying to make the fans look good, and he decided that 100% negative pressure was better than any amount of positive pressure. Plus, it looks like he's using it without the side panel on, so I think that would help with better airflow. IDK tho that's just what my thought process would be.
What voltage is the 3800x running at? +1
My friend has nearly the exact same build. Same CPU, and similar other parts. He thought he was fine with a stock cooler, then I convinced him to upgrade to a Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240R. Night and day difference in terms of looks and thermal performance. Even got a few extra fps. He didn't think it was loud before until he heard the quietness of an overkill AIO. +1 tho good build
I picture 7, what hardware monitor are you using? +1
finally. rgb on the way.
Out of necessity come invention +1
I think that disabling the compatibility feature on it would be good, if you have a build open it won't let any laptops show up. I'm glad this is back!
no im sorry bro i didn't meen it;(((((((((((((
For a Sabrent M.2 drive, it's best to get an M.2 heatsink, they run pretty hot and you'll get faster sustained R/W speeds, just my two cents. +1 RGB
I know this is a bit late, but I'm about to use that case and motherboard, I've heard other people had problems with the PCI slot covers, do you have any thoughts? +1
How has this repost lasted?
I know this is a bit old, but have you seen the Tai Chi GPUs?
I'm creating a list
Are you willing to buy used parts? You could get a lot more performance/cheaper overall if you get some on Ebay.
Were you able to control the lighting software of the ADATA Spectrix? If so, what software did you use? Thinking of getting it and you're the only one on this site with it in a build. +1 for pretty lights
Come for the cat, stay for the ... cat +1
Good build, I believe the fan should be facing towards the front of the case and not downward.
Hmm yes, picture orientation
Hopefully reviving thread with 3172 pages, 11/15/19.
you did not wait long enough, the council is disappointed
look a the temps on the sidebar
Looks great kind of a "fire and ice" theme thing, why would you want to upgrade? lol +1
every 10 months, a comment appears here
"BOIS" lol +1
I mean that you probably meant to say that COD came with the GPU . . .
Why'd you decide to get a new one? +1
"GPU came free with COD" hmmm lol +1
590 performs a lot worse and sucks more power, which is what makes it generally hotter and louder
Not necessary, however you could benefit from a decent $30-50 aftermarket cooler.
Where do you keep winning these things? +1
Good quality RGB fans will cost more than $20, usually.
Basically the amount that is posted.
If you look at the product page it says that it doesn't have DRAM
Dear lord that's a lot of thermal paste lol
The case comes with 4 fans, your mobo has enough fan headers so you wouldn't need a fan controller. Those halos would be good to spice up the fans.
PSU isn't really better, but OK.
OLOy RAM? I wouldn't, it's usually better to get a good brand I know RAM comes from the same OEMs but better brands have better binning and just generally work better, as popularity can lead to BIOS supporting them better.
I know from experience that the case could be better lol
I also wouldn't get a 2.5 SSD that doesn't have DRAM
Looks good, here are a few suggestions:
1: Nix the CPU cooler. The 9400F comes with one that's already a bit better than the one in that list. It'll do fine, but if you want it to look better or be quiet, you could get something like a Hyper 212 Evo, they're cheap and have good performance, there's also different versions with different aesthetics.
2: Since you have a Micro ATX motherboard, I wouldn't recommend getting a case that large. It looks kinda wack when there's this big box and only a little square of parts inside. Therefore I'd recommend getting the Thermaltake Versa H18, it's a much better case in terms of quality, for example it has a tempered glass side panel, and it'll look better overall.
3: The RAM that you selected is a very good kit, however, the B365 chipset only supports DDR4-2666, so getting a 3200 Mhz kit is overkill. A kit of Corsair Vengance would be better for the price, I have a kit and got the CAS down to 14, so it's quite good.
4: The HDD chosen isn't bad, however I've made two changes. The first is to add a 120 GB boot drive, trust me and nearly anyone else on this site, it's worth the extra $20 or so. Every time. The other change is that I changed the WD hard drive to a Seagate one, usually I'd use WD but in this case the Seagate one is faster, quieter, and newer, so I think it's a bit better. Not a huge thing, but still.
5: The GPU selected is a 1060, and while that's not a bad choice, it could be better. I'd say to either go with a better RX 590, or even better, a 1660, even a 1660 Super. 1660 would be most recommended, but you can look around. It's just better performance.
6: I'd get some case fans. A couple cheap 120mm PWM fans would do the trick, and you could play around with LEDs too!
Overall, it's not a bad rig, just a few changes to get more performance for your dollar. Someone will probably tell you to go AMD, and while that's probably worth looking at, I can tell you that this here build will bring you some serious frames! The only other thing is to make sure you are getting an OS.
