aight, hopefully it would be enough for 5GHz then
Looking to do a similar build with the same CPU/Cooler/Motherboard/Case. Have you attempted actually overclocking over the 4.6GHz boost clock?
Wanted to know well the cooler/motherboard/case can handle it.
never said it was a bad keyboard, I just don't think it will last long if you plan on doing a lot of gaming on it.
also heard PUBG 1.0 was somehow worse initially but maybe it's been patched. What FPS are you getting? I may plan on playing it again if its really that much more optimized.
Don't know how optimized PUBG is now, but with the same specs, I was struggling to get consistent 60fps when it first released in March, at the time, even my friend rocking an i7-6700 with a 1080 was struggling.
Yes it can run it, but its not a kill it even at competitive specs. Also want to note, you should probably upgrade your keyboard if you're ganna game as the one you have may deteriorate much quicker for your use.
I never said you need it, but for the people who do notice and benefit from it, a higher resolution is no use to them in a competitive game
Setup Wars incoming?
Probably not designed because of how small it is, but I wish there was a smaller cut out where the panel of the shroud is to route GPU cables if there are no 3.5" hard drives
How do people play on such a small mousepad :/
240Hz with a Razer Naga, I'm seriously confused on what games you play
There's no 1440p 240Hz monitor yet and you can clearly see with the peripherals (and the mods done to it) he's rocking, he's likely playing CS:GO or Overwatch where refresh rates matter much more. He has enough money to blow and where I would have maybe went with a 4K 24" as a secondary monitor with that money, its ultimately up to him what he does with it.,
EC-2B with paracord. I dig it.
Hi, do you think if you remove the panel on the shroud that the GPU power on a 'regular' sized GPU would fit perfectly through? Similar to that of the S340 Elite or Enthoo Pro?
It's been doing fine for me reaching a year. I don't often reach max load but I did go through stress testing max load with a friend and it handled it fine. GPU and CPU (even 7th gen i5s) could be handled by the 450m. If you can, you could go for 550m to keep it quiet under heavier load.
Obviously if you're going for an unlocked CPU, i can't speak for it handling overclocks with the added powers and fans.
4K movies, the i7 is enough.
but as soon as you decide you want to game with it, you're ganna go with 4K cause you have the TV.
thats where you suddenly have to add buffed GPUs for smooth gameplay at that resolution.
Wouldn't 2 Samsung 850 EVO 2TB in RAID 0 be cheaper and faster than 1 4TB one?
my bad for promoting them but I just have a question about those keys. Aren't the keys sold on websites legitimate keys that are simply resold? From what I heard, the keys are simply sold at a lower price in other countries and they are simply reselling them online.
Also you don't need 550W for that build, 450W would be enough for any 1060, even a 1070.
With my build, it isn't too noisy often. If the CX550M was on sale I would have gotten that instead in all honesty. It was $10 more expensive that the 450M but the 450 was on mail in rebate and I was trying to save a bit at the time. I would definitely still recommend to get the 550 for yourself.
Both have fans that won't run the fan below 50% so the 550 would be more quiet more often.
well its not the fastest for sure. but 4-8 second difference at the low time is not much of a difference for me. SSD load times also have diminishing marginal returns.
I am still able to load really quickly into all my games well ahead of others in the server as well. That along with Samsung's product reliability is enough for me.
23 Seconds from the time I press the power button to when the lock screen shows up.
Do you think a regular ATX PSU would fit in the case with the build? Might be getting a semi-modular PSU for it.
Are you able to run GTA at 60fps on 1080p? Helping my friend with a build using similar case and graphics card.
also you said you threw out the PSU, what did you end up using?
one think I forgot to mention is that you are also unlikely to reach 144Hz playing top games with the gtx1060 anyway.
My current build plan also includes the 1060 (not oc) as I will mainly play Counter Strike: Global Offensive with it and GTA & Project Cars/Assetto Corsa with it.
144Hz will be useful for me as more frames really helps in a game as competitive as CS:GO.
If you don't plan to get super competitive I don't think you need 144Hz and maybe just go with 60Hz or 120Hz. 27" tells me you're likely to be playing games casually too and for personal opinion, 144Hz at 27" is just a headache waiting to happen.
If you really want to go for 144Hz though, I recommend the AOC G2460PQU as it is a decent 144Hz without to many useless extras.
For a bit extra, you can get the ASUS VG248QE which is 3D ready if you want that.
I'm planning to get the PNY GTX 1060 and I'm not planning to overclock with it or anything. You guys think its worth saving $40+?
So essentially if I'm planning to get the an 8GB (1x8) RAM, I can always upgrade to 16GB (2x8) RAM by purchasing the exact same stick/
