I think they add to the aesthetic nicely.
I don't think I've seen the MSI Core Frozr yet, how does it hold up? Nice build, take the plastic off so you can properly see the beauty!
Nice build, very clean. I like the white and black with the P400S. Nice choice on monitor as well, I have the old version and I absolutely love it.
That is awesome. I don't even no what else to say. It's just straight up awesome.
What else WOULD it be? If you want objectively awesome, there's no better way to go
Good job on your first build. I love that cooler, best value for your money in the entry level air cooler market. I have an H5 Ultimate in my rig right now and I love it. That tiny GPU makes my old Tri-X R9 280X look like a behemoth!
Haha, don't worry, I studied Chinese in high school and forgot most of it. I remember simple phrases like that. It just means "what is this?"
I feel you.
Budget is subjective anyways. A few years ago my dad build a computer in a Grandia with a 4770K and a GTX 780 Ti. He said to me, and I quote, "I wasn't able to go all out because I wanted to stay on the budget side".
Screw you, dad...
Nice build! I think you have the wrong case listed though, that looks like a Luxe, not an Evolv. Or am I just crazy?
Ah, the good old FX stock cooler. I call it "The Screamer".
Nice build, something about seeing FX builds being posted warms my heart. I have an 8350 in my current rig, it's my favorite processor I've ever owned. Probably gonna upgrade to a R5 1500X when I get the money, though.
Nice build! Never seen that case before, for a tempered glass case that's cheap. How was building in it?
You did a great job with sticking to a theme, all the parts come together nicely.
Dang, I wish we had the same definition of "budget".
Just kidding, in all seriousness awesome build.
I've never seen that case before, how is it?
Nice build, I like those fans, are they stock on that case?
That cable management...my god ... it's beautiful
45° C is really hot for a 7600K at idle. Did you up your voltage for the overclock? You might have gone too high.
Otherwise, nice build for the budget you had. I would try to redo the cables if I were you though.
HOLY RED BATMAN!!!
Nice build though, +1 from me, especially for Ryzen
Nice loop! I love all the gradual turns in the piping. I'm liking these box-like cases more and more. They definitely benefit aesthetically from a custom loop though.
Everytime I see that case I love it. +1 for you
Nice budget build! That case doesn't look bad for the price.
One thing I would say though is, strictly for gaming, a Pentium would have been a better choice for about the same price for the CPU/motherboard combo. But hey, the 6300 should still do fine at least in the short term.
That lighting looks awesome, I love how it toes the line between subtle and gaudy.
How do you like the Riings? I was thinking of getting a couple
Nice, can't wait to see it with the 1080 Ti.
This is beautiful. +1 for you
That case amazes me everytime I see it.
Nice build, +1
Oh my god, that is beautiful.
If you're going for Intel and just gaming, something like the i3-6100 would do you nicely for little power draw or temp problems and not break the bank. For AMD, the 8350 is awesome in opinion. Just watch those temps.
Hey man, sorry it took me so long to respond, haven't been on here for a while. You've got a couple of options with that kind of budget. If you're concerned about temps and power usage, I'd go with a lower end Intel if you're solely going for gaming, as you'll get the highest efficiency in terms of temperature and power. I use my rig for game development and video rendering as well as gaming, so AMD ended up being a better value for me. What are you planning on using it for?
+1 from me. This is a great budget build, all those parts were a steal at the price you got them.
That case is beautiful, I love the Cooler Master Storm series.
Nice build bro. Don't worry about the RAM, when you don't have a side panel window it doesn't really matter if your components are pretty or not. You'll definitely have trouble gaming at 4K with a 970, but if it's not a big part of the build then there's no need to worry about it.
...and whatever it is you people play these days)
...and whatever it is you people play these days)
You people? WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU PEOPLE?!
Haha, just kidding. You should try overclocking the 6300, you'll get a nice performance boost. Just make sure you get an aftermarket cooler first, the stock FX coolers can hardly handle those chips at stock. Nice build brosef, +1 from me.
Damn. If they destroyed a $1000 machine that you paid insurance for and refuse to accept your claim, you should sue the living crap out of them. They shouldn't offer insurance if they don't plan on honoring it. That was a gorgeous build before those buffoons got their hands on it. That's just plain disgusting and unjust in every way. I can guarantee you that if you were a company and not an individual, they would not even question your claim. Make sure you let us know if you get those ******** to take responsibility for their negligence.
Nice clean build bro. I've been looking at a couple Logitech gaming mice, how's that one been performing? Any input lag?
Nice build. You got that 290 for a steal, was it used?
I like that case a lot, the simplistic design is actually very sleek looking.
Welcome back, brother. We have been waiting.
Please tell me the title is a Monty Python reference...I will cry tears of joy and laughter if it is.
Nice build bro! Very clean and sharp looking, love the green cables. I like that keyboard too, the simplistic design is refreshing and actually very attractive in my opinion. I've been thinking about getting a Cooler Master keyboard, how do you like that one?
A refresh that outperforms the 290...
And in some cases the 290X...
He knows that we know that he knows that you know that I know that everybody knows....wait, my head hurts.
60% of the time, it works everytime.
People can stand in place shouting at the top of their lungs about bottlenecking, but they are completely missing the point. It doesn't matter that the CPU that has been paired with a particular GPU can't utilize it to its absolute full potential. What matters is whether or not the disparity in performance will cause a noticeable change in gaming experience.
In this case, it will not. Whenever you are talking about a difference in frame rate that doesn't drop below the 40 to 60 FPS level, the change is negligible. If this user were running dual 4K monitors and doing massive amounts of 3D rendering, this combination would be a problem. For current gaming on a single 1080p monitor, it is not.
If you can afford it, I would go with X99. It will have greater longevity, and it uses DDR4 while Z97 is limited to DDR3. Not to mention more cores at this time. Honestly though, at this point you might be better off waiting for the Skylake processors to launch.
Nice build bro. As others have said, you probably want to invest in a better CPU in the near future, as that combo is far from ideal. However, out of the two components I definitely would have upgraded the graphics card first myself as well, so no sweat. Not to mention the 980 Ti is not cheap by any measure, so upgrading to that and the CPU requires quite a lot of dough. I definitely wouldn't be able to afford it. Hell, I wouldn't be able to afford the 980 Ti to begin with.
Haha, the reactions people have to this build are hilarious. The bottlenecking will definitely be there, but some people are reacting as if it will render the system unusable. I most certainly not call this combination ideal, but there's some Intel fanboys hovering around that seem to be having strokes over this build.
There's no reason to feel like you screwed up. From what it sounds like, you got some really good deals and built a decent gaming rig for very little money. This is powerful enough to keep up with most modern games on 1080p and medium to medium-high settings. For your first build, you did a fine job. +1
Then that would go perfectly. Just make sure you have a large enough PSU. I would recommend at least 500 Watts.
As long as your board has a PCI-Express x16 slot, the motherboard isn't really a big concern unless you plan on overclocking. That motherboard does have an x16 slot, so it should work just fine. What's more important is your CPU, what processor do you have?
Okay, this page should tell you everything you need for basic partitioning in 8 and 8.1: http://www.disk-partition.com/windows-8/partition-hard-drive-windows-8.html
What OS do you have?
No problem, I'm happy to help. :)
It's a little confusing that AMD puts processors both with and without integrated graphics on the same chipset, so I can see from where you confusion arose. A lot of people make the exact same mistake you did, which is why I knew what your problem was as soon as I read your comment.
From the GPU to the monitor. The ports on the motherboard will only work if you get an APU, as those ports only communicate with the processor, not the PCI slots.
