funny you say that. I've used this model PSU 15-20 times over the past 4 or 5 years with zero problems. None have which have died, caught fire, blown up or smoked out.
Why would the PSU explode?
Aigo from Amazon
I'm digging the Halloween build. How are the temps in that Thermaltake case? Does that GPU sling off a lot of heat?
Good budget build. I love building in the 500-700 range. I have a lot of success building and selling them at this price point.
not as fast than the Samsung but the price it can't be beat. I have used 7 of these so far with no problems at all.
Love the ITX NZXT case. How are the temps in it? Any overheating issues with the GPU yet?
Nice budget gamer, very clean. I agree, I would pop in another drive. Silicon Power has a 512gb SSD you can get from Amazon for about 75.00
How's the airflow in the P400s? I've built one in the P300 and it was a fairly smooth build but the airflow is not that great.
yeah, nothing wrong with a 450w bronze evga power supply, entire system doesn't pull 275w max...I've used them a lot on builds and have never had any problems. every now and then you can find them for 10.00 such as today, but for the most part they are 29-39. Plus I have never kept the same power supply for years and years. I usually build myself a new PC every 2-3 years.
Knock on wood, this is my 7th set that I've used.
Nice build. Save up Christmas money and get you a 1060 6gb or a RX 580. Prices on both those cards should come way down by then. I bought a used 1060 6gb on ebay the other day for 150.00
might be the wrong ones. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Aigo-Aurora-DR12-3IN1-Kit-3pcs-RGB-LED-120mm-High-Performance-Case-Cooling-Fan/273244925172?hash=item3f9eaaacf4:g:J1EAAOSwWe1bDmpm
this should be the correct kit.
I saw a ZOTAC 1070 go for 201.00 last week. If I would have had the money I would have jumped all over that one lol.
You have to stay on top of ebay. If you have time to watch you can find some crazy deals. It took me about 3 weeks to get everything for the build.
I like the case. Only downside is the front audio jacks don't work. I've tried every thing. Unplugging the audio header, reinstalling realtech drivers and everything. Still can't get it to work.
Good looking build. I've used those Aigo fans before. for 30.00 for the kit with controller and remote they can't be beat. I definitely would have spent a little more and gotten a 6gb 1060 though.
spend 50.00 and get a decent SSD you won't regret it.
Love this rig, Ryzen 5 and 1060 6gb is the best budget combo imo. Take the CPU fan cable and run it clockwise around the heatsink, should be long enough to do it and will hide it much better.
Love the MSI Gaming X card. I've used 3 of them so far. Run to Walmart and get a can of air when you get a chance. :)
I'm digging this build, looks great. How much was the GPU?
Good looking PC, I built my son almost that same PC. Love that GPU and case.
Nice cable management
I'm not either but newegg had a flash sale on ebay for 38.00 each so I bought 3 of them. So far so good lol.
I see what you mean. good catch! I'll tell my buddy to flip the top one lol
they are pretty quite fans. not sure I know what you mean on the push pull though. Front fans are pulling air in and top fan and rear fan are blowing air out.
for now it's enough, unless he decides he want's to stream.
I said the same thing...lol
Put it on letgo for 150.00 and flip another one lol. :)
I've been looking at those cases for a while now. Was thinking of doing my next budget build in one. How are they and do they get decent intake airflow from the front?
Here is a RGB fan kit I would go with. It will be more than enough light for that case. For the money it can't be beat. I've used 3 of these kits and they work great. Also you can get on ebay and find them for 29.99 with free shipping as well.
Its a fan kit. just google Aigo Aurora and they should pop up.
yeah, its a great looking card.
Aigo Aurora, 30 bucks for a 3 fan kit with controler and remote. For the price they can't be beat.
Yeah I have a gigabyte windforce 1060 oc in mine and the MSI card is a bit bigger. So far he gets over 60fps in all the games he plays, PUBG,Fornight,battlefield 1 and GTA5 with everything cranked up.
So far so good. Son can stream PUBG and Fortnight with no problems at all. Also got 12221 on 3d mark Firestrike.
You must have done something right, My firestrike score is 11875 with a ryzen 7 1700, msi gtx 1060 6gb and 16 gb of the same ram you have. :)
Simple and it gets the job done with 60+ fps at 1080p. I like it!
I purchased everything for him. He told me that he wanted those specific parts, gigabyte motherboard,MSI graphics card and corsair memory. I was saying I could have saved him more money had he not wanted those particular parts.
There are always different ways to save money. My friend requested the motherboard, the ram and a MSI video card. Those exact choices would have saved 100.00 right there.
Thanks for the compliment.
