So for reference you shouldn't need the extra pcie power on the motherboard for a 1660. I would disconnect and tuck that cable inside the case. Outside of that looks goo and enjoy the build dude!

I would swap the power supply for the one I listed, or better. Mainly due to not having room to expand later if you so choose. I also really recommend going later on with an M.2 SSD, as the drive is much slower compared to an SSD. Outside of that looks decent :)

Alright here's my go at it, honestly I would spend the extra and get the R5 1600 for the extra cores but you said under 650 ;).

Unfortunately it seems like the best choices like the RX 570-580's are all out of stock even though you can select them. But the 1050 Ti still does GTA 5 on ultra so should be good to go.

Only other thoughts is while it is mostly black and white color scheme you can throw in some rgb and it will light the case up very nicely for the money.

Alright,

This is approx. $1.19 over budget but I feel as though its a good option for both upgrade-ability down the road and current game performance.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts
Total $501.19

CPU - R3 1200 While punch for punch it's a little slower than the G4560 it's better in my opinion in that you can upgrade to Ryzen 7 Later on.

MB - Over 70+ reviews and its from AsRock so you know its reliable.

RAM - Patriot is solid and matches the board nicely.

GPU - The 1050 is alright but honestly I would look into finding a used GTX 960 for about the $120 mark as its a better alternative to the 1050 for the same cash. Check Reddit Hardwareswap or Craigslist for that.

PSU - Highly rated semi modular and cheap can't go wrong there.

Case - This is based off that same chassis as the Xigmatek Spirit M and the Corsair 88R but I think it looks a bit better plus more room for cooling.

Hope this helps and wish you the best of luck!

Lol, I've never experienced the issue granted it lives its life in my entertainment center while I play VR or any other game on my 4k TV. With that said unfortunately the Shuriken isn't compatible with the AM4 Socket (stupid I think). If you can find it the AXP 100 from Thermalright is pretty good but just barely scrapes the height ceiling of the case. The only other alternative is possibly the Noctua L9a cooler but I think it still requires getting the am4 brackets from Noctua to use and thus a little more pain in the rear to use while being worse than the C7.

For the money, why not go with the Ryzen 7 1700 same price as the 7700 is overclockable and 4 more cores and 8 threads. This will definitely be more helpful with the double duty you're trying to achieve.

They also had the Node 202 with the PSU listed so I just added that. One thing to note is Cryorig is releasing a Copper version of the C7 which will be infinitely better. I use this cooler daily in my htpc/VR rig with no problems, and would highly recommend it.

Unfortunately I would honestly stay away from this one until revision 2 there is some minor updates need particularly in the HDD cage department but what can I expect for $40? Overall it was definitely a solid experience, also if you did not know the 88R is this case rebadged and slightly more professional looking!

You can get 860m laptops all day for $800 which is comparable and better once overclocked, you cannot expect to get $850 out of your laptop man. Honestly I'd give you $650-700 and thats pushing it, hardware doesn't hold its value and you're not holding onto something special with a sweet gpu. Drop your prices and you'll make a sale.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Logisys MC4002IW vs CRYORIG H7 vs Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO"

  • 59 months ago
  • 1 point

As i have all three, the logisys is definitely the smallest of the 3 only uses a 92mm fan good for compact builds but can be a tad noisy. The Cryorig H7 is the easiest to put on the mobo as it has a super simple mounting system but you will need a a long flat head screwdriver to adjust the brackets. Also the H7 is much shorter than advertised as, I honestly don't know why though. THe 212 Evo is all around solid performer but can be loud at higher volumes. Personally though my favorite is the Be Quiet Pure Rock, its better than all the other 3 as well as being silent and costing the same as the others.

Dude how is that mobo $100 is ridiculous as its one used and two its brand new at $109. So I would recommend reducing the price by a whole lot if you wanna sell those at all.

Well then the overclocking would kinda be a moot point then? If you're looking to get the most threads for your money in that kind of application the Xeon would be better suited. Side note I have a 8120 i could be willing to part with if you're still interested on going with 990fx.

For your viewing pleasure Firstly so you can learn something today, and two the most important piece of information in the articles:

"In terms of everything else, we saw basically no difference from the same single drive being plugged into a SATA 6Gb/s or SATA 3Gb/s port. All of this is obviously due to the hard drive not being able to actually take advantage of the 6Gb/s bus."

Okay? So you can drop the whole HDD on sata 2 motherboard nonsense now thanks.

My assumption is you would have the capture program.running on the second PC (gaming one). Capturing the data already being transmitted and sending it to twitch. I prefer OBS as a capture program its pretty lightweight and not as CPU intensive as other capture programs. The only issue I could see is needing some serious CPU crunch power to both stream and broadcast at the same.time.

An HDD will never take advantage of a a full Sata 3 port much less a data 2 your nitpicking is still fruitless and much more to the point pointless. Learn more about computers first before nitpicking simple faults you obviously are out of depth about.

So Kabini is essentially perfect for what you're looking for, low wattage and easily handles streaming tasks. The case already has a PSU in it and can easily handle the power output of the chip. Increased RAM for the onboard GPU to use, all for less than $330 with included wireless adapter you may not need. Upgraded the cooler to a low profile setup to allow for more room overhead for air flow.

Overall though I think for $330 this is a killer setup, for a little more money you could get the ASUS board which allows for OC'ing of the cpu. That's up to you though.

Also some added insight into Kabini's uses. http://steamcommunity.com/groups/homestream/discussions/0/34093781695869964/

This would be about as comparable for a little more money and does allow upgradability in the future to other 1150 CPUS.
