Jeez, it's been so long that I don't rightly remember that well, but if I were to hazard a guess, I applied way too little, or way too much. I apologize if you were looking for a more comprehensive answer, though.

but... why? If you don't need it running, remove it from the system. If you're going to keep it there, just connect it! It's literally going to do nothing other than benefit the system's temperatures.

that intake at the bottom isn't running. Is it supposed to be running? Because if it's supposed to be, you have a problem.

Pascal is voltage locked past 1.093 volts. Pascal cards only allow voltage adjustment as a percentage, where 0% is stock (around 1.075-ish), and 100% is 1.093. It runs at about 75 degrees Celsius at full load, on the stock quiet fan profile.

Thanks! I try my best. I am pretty much fine with the peripherals I have, save for my cheapo 1080p 60hz TN monitor, which I can just upgrade with the money I have on hand.

Also, good build. I like the more balanced budget application you have in your build.

Interesting. I've never seen someone make a NAS or server in this kind of form factor before. What kind of difficulties were there building this?

  • 45 months ago

I have the strangest feeling that you like Voltron. Also, pretty good build.

Also, you should move the GTX 970 to the PCIe 16x slot closest to the CPU socket. It's wired for full 16x electrical connectivity, and while it might not make much of a difference, I feel it looks a little better with it higher up.

Oh, also you might want to work on the cable management. Run as many cables as you can behind the mobo tray, and stash any excess in unused bay areas. Zip ties and twist ties help, but my personal favorite are Velcro straps.

Oh well I can understand that: my first build had 6 case fans mounted to the case, which was way more than I actually needed. But nice ingenuity on fixing the gpu sag.

you might want to look into adding a premix, if not just so that the water has a color, which would look awesome with that build.

Excellent build, but two things: 1. I would consider this a bit more of a function-over-form build, because this is honestly a pretty good budget for an i7 and a 980 ti + extra bits. 2. The 980 ti doesn't exactly mix the color scheme. Maybe an ASUS Strix would have been better. Also, that GPU is sagging. Might want to prop it up against the power supply with, say, some extra Lego bits lying around.

Comment reply on revolverlover's Completed Build: The Budget AMD

  • 46 months ago

the motherboard isn't the one running the games. That would be the GPU, and running them at that setting depends on what games at what resolution. I only got the motherboard over the competition on the AMD side because I liked the looks and premium onboard audio hardware, which actually pales in comparison to my current motherboard: the Asus Z170 Pro Gaming. However, if you want a board on the AMD side that will run any AMD CPU, I would suggest an Asus, Gigabyte, or MSI 990FX chipset. However, I don't recommend AMD right now, since AM3+ is kind of a dying platform, and I would wait to see what AMD Zen has in store for us, or go Intel.

I should have clarified that I meant that should he upgrade the GPU to something more power-hungry, like a Fury X or 980 TI. Besides, I agree, that PSU is perfectly solid.

To be fair, it is a great case, especially for the price, but it just is way too popular at this point, which is great for Phanteks, but not so much for those among us that prefer variety.

Dude just use PCPartpicker to check prices. 750 TI's are ridiculously cheap right now, but Zotac and Asus 950's are only 30-40 dollars more, and are not even close to being premium, and as of right now and for the foreseeable future, hyperthreading only presents performance gains in things like video editing, rendering, and photoshop.

Except that the CPU you chose wouldn't show much real world difference in gaming performance than an i5, and the GPU prices you are presenting are MSRP, not market prices, which put these graphics cards within 20-30 dollars of each other.

Do what you will with the cpu, since that's not really much of my say, but for a gaming rig, you should really allocate more of the budget towards the graphics card, since that will have the most impact towards gaming performance. Besides, as underrated as the 750 ti is, it is outclassed by the R9 270(X), 280(X), 380(X), GTX 950 and 960, all of which are budget cards that don't cost really that much more than the 750 ti.

skylake is extremely pricey right now, so maybe go Haswell for the value. Corsair CX power supplies aren't really the best for gaming PCs, and although the rest of the hardware is good, the GPU is way too underpowered for something that costs over $1200.

I personally think you should pick up an Intel core i5-4690K, it has better single-core performance than anything that AMD has to offer at the moment. Other than that, this is really good.

If you had a 4th generation Intel CPU/motherboard, don't upgrade, it's not really worth the extra cost of skylake. If you didn't already have a 4th generation Intel platform, then skylake could provide a good platform, albeit at a higher cost than haswell and with less availability than haswell.

Go for 4K. SLI 980 TI's are perfect at that resolution, and choose a high refresh rate monitor as well

also many boards don't have SLI support at a budget price like 100 bucks for z170 yet. The cheapest one right now, which I have, is the gigabyte z170xp-sli, at about 140 bucks

nononononono unlocked means you can change the multiplier of the core clock, which enables much better overclocking. locked multiplier cpus can only change the FSB speed, and is much more hesitant to overclocks.
