Because Aios have more potential parts of failures.. A good air cooler does the job

This really seems weird. I also suggest you make a post on r/buildapc on reddit. Usually a lot of people there too.

How are the fans connected? Is each fan connected to a separate pin header on the MB? Maybe you didn't plug it in all the way. Are the fans 3 pins or 4 pin PWM? And I would check what Zerk2012 says. Maybe it really doesnt get enough juice.

Where did you buy it? Normally they should be delivered with a full size PCI-E bracket installed and a low profile one in the box. That was at least with the AC56 in my rig and from the asus website it seems so too..

Nice build! altough before you get the pc O11 I would upgrade the CPU. I think performance > looks. But i have to agree. the PC o11 looks sexy

How the hell do you fit that 240 rad in that case? does it have a rad mount?

The case definitely has poor airflow concerning the CPU. The locked i7 regularly hits 75 C during gaming even when setting a more aggressive CPU fan curve in the bios. GPU wise its fine since you have 3 fans blasting air directly at it. I don't know specific temps but temps are definitely acceptable. And the 2060 is for sure a cooler card since it pulls less power. I think you'll be totally fine. Sorry for taking so long to answer..

No I just think he doesn't know much about components. I mean he knew generally what he wanted. But I just think he thought that higher price = better performance overall. And this is just not always the case.

He really wanted Intel.. I mean thats fine but even an i7 9700k or a 9900k would have been a better CPU for gaming while being MUCH cheaper than the i9

Yeah sorry about that.. I just snapped some while building and forgot to take some of the finished PC.. I only noticed after he picked it up..

I found this build though that uses the dark rock pro 4 and trident z memory.. So I am confident that I can make it work https://pcpartpicker.com/b/mChypg . I may need to remount the front fan to higher fins tho

How is the RAM clearance? A buddy wants to install Trident Z RGB memory on a x299 mobo and use this cooler.. do you think it wil fit or is it too tight?

I think enough.. But if csgo is your main game then I would rather look at Intel CPUs. Cs tends to run much better on Intel CPUs

True.. since SSDs have gotten much cheaper and dropping the HDD makes sense. With 50-60 bucks you can easily find a good 500GB SSD from a reputable brand..

No worries. Gona buy a beefy air cooler from noctua though. Since he has no clue about PCs and wants to keep the PC for a long time I think air cooling will be good. Just need one of those huge air coolers. Gona keep it on stock speeds though.

With a good Internet connection then you'll be fine. Depends what you want to stream. If you stream games from the PC you won't need a capture card.

Not really... If you wanna save some bucks then the stock cooler will do. You can't really OC the Chip with it tho..

Eh. If you are on a budget the 2600X will cut it. But yeah if you have the money lying around the r7 would technically be better...

The 2600X already comes pre overclocked from the factory. If you want you can get the cheaper 2600 and overclock that one to match the 2600X. If you want to OC woth the 2600 I suggest you keep the cooler of this list since the one of the 2600 doesnt really cut overclocks. I suggest to look up guides on youtube on how to overclock.

Nope.. NVME SSDs are more expensive and to be honest the performance difference is not really noticable anyway under normal circumstances..

Yeah it sucks because they look really good.. I had a 6 pack and after like 6 months 3 of them started to make a bad noise. I bough Noctua chromax fans now though...

Nice build. But trust me.. If those are Enermax tb rgb fans.. Those suck ***. I bought a six pack and after 6 months they started to make a rattling noise. I am not the only one with this problem.. Shame... they look so good though..

The second 4+4 pin is for overclocking. hardcore overclocking at that.. But yeah.. A single 4+4 pin is enough to power it even with an overclock..

This would be a perfect build for your needs. And yeah, building it yourself will save you the hassle with bloatware. Just look out that sometimes the driver CDs that come with the hardware have some bloatware on it.. But you can simply opt out of installing it.

If you are looking into a budget workstation I would rather opt for a Ryzen 5 2600. It has SMT and 2 more cores. It is a much better CPU for heavier workloads.

Well depends at what Resolution. I suggest you look up some benchmarks on youtube. Something like "Rx 570 Apex 1080p benchmarks". You probably want to set the settings to high/medium to get the most fps out of it. I think in fps gamesfps > graphics. But yeah... the RX 570 should hold up quite good in apex

Well my parents already have a nas they want to set up. But since their old computer with a i7 2600 is gona be "useless" soon I just might clean that one up and use the old one as a plex server. Less complicated, no? Although this would mean 2 PCs standing around. On top of that I'll let my dad do the rest I think since from here on he knows what to do. He is quite experienced with software and everything. He just didn't know how to build a PC. I think he already has a couple of ideas what he wants to with the PC

If you go with air cooling I suggest you get a noctua nh u12s and get a black nocta fan. If you wanna get a liquid cooler EVGA CLCs have hands down the best performance.

Comment reply on Blademast's Completed Build: The Outlaw

Yeah.. It just makes sense.. An aftermarket cooler would also be a sweet investment. First of all it looks better than the stock cooler and second it cools more effectively. That way you have more headroom later on to pop in an i5 8600k or an i7 8700k.

Yeah they do... Im looking right at it. You need to make them yourself in the configurator. They do offer purple ones if you order them custom made
