damn what camera did you take those pics with?
This was the dream pc in 2016
Here is the BUild under $1300, While time lasts, and i think that it still looks fine but you get to keep the 2070
Yes you could but I would recommend cutting out some of the athletics instead to save the extra $100, because i think that the performance difference is worth it between the 2070 and the 1070.
If you are only gaming then something like this, https://pcpartpicker.com/list/gLpf4q
Would be a lot better and you could easy get the price down under 1300 if you didn't care as much bout aesthetics. however I wouldn't recommend only having 250gb of ssd in your system that isn't a lot.
Can I have your old 1080ti? Lol
Looks like Tech Source’s Galladex. Amazing
change your ram sticks to the correct position, put another of the same fans from up top on the AIO cooler for the GPU, fix the color scheme to black and one other color( I would recommend orange), get the fan cables and other small wires routed to the side and around the mobo tray.
Why is it so ugly? There was so much potential. No offense.
oh ok sounds good
You should use the top PCIE slot
He built the meme PC
And that's at 1.3 volts
Man ur lukcy, my 7700k hits 95c on an h100i v2 @4.8 ghz under synthetic before it overheats and crashes.
Y'all can calm down, he got a $10 mail-in rebate and stayed under budget!
Yes the nzxt mobo has an integration, but I would atoll go for an Asus board simply because of the long-term support and experience
I would stay away from nzxt’s mobo. Simply because of its high price and lack of features due to nzxts lack of market share and experience. As Overclocking motherboards go Asus is where to stay. A good Maximus hero or z270e gaming would do you great
You should look into swapping that b250 mobo for a z170 or z270 one, so that you could overclock that bad boy. Also, how did you get a 1080 ti with only 1 8-pin power cable?
Dang you are just talented!
WHAT DID YOU USE TO TAKE THOSE SEXY PICTURES?
Lol I had to stick with what I said last year
Thx for the info! If SLI doesn't work sometimes and you might have to go back to just one 1080 then even if voltas performance gains over the 1080 aren't as good as SLI I think Volta might be the better option just for less trouble, less heat output and not having to buy a new power supply. I guess pricing will be the final decider.
I have a 7700k and a single gtx 1080. I am wondering the performance gains you get with a second 1080? I am either going to get another 1080 when the prices come down or sell the 1080 and upgrade to Volta. What would you do?
No coffee lake mobo's and kaby lake mobo's are not compatible. The Maximus 9 is a kaby lake and the 10 is a coffee lake. He has the 9
That's clean AF
I guess you will get your full boost clock speeds at all time which I don't think could be said for the intel stock cooler.
I read your edit and that would totally make sense. The only downside is that if you wanted to upgrade the CPU down the line you might have to ditch that good mobo because Intel is not likely to support lga1151 for a lot longer which really sucks! Parts aside the build looks really clean and well put together. It's definitely the way I would have done it, going the extra mile for custom cables, color matching components and good lighting ascetics on what looks like a fixed budget.
If he really needed a cool CPU he should have just got a CPU with a low TDP, and if he wanted a performance bump with a liquid CPU cooler he should have paid the extra $50 and got the 8600k. I know that budget b360 boards are not out yet but because you need to get a $100 plus overclockable mobo it doesn't make sense to get a locked CPU.
A hue+ would make that build.
It might have been better to go for EKWB's all aluminum water cooling kit instead of 2 240mm rads if you wanted full system water cooling. Also, the 8400 with a z370mobo and a liquid cooler is a little bit pointless the 8600k could easy get 5GHz with your setup.
Some custom cables would go a long way
Did you make the price $3333.33 on purpose?
You can find them as low as $130 but they come from a **** brand as well as they look like crap even for a 2133 kit
Ya those were. I was thinking about selling these and making some profit!
Ok, so I’m not seeing things! But you got some nice upgrades!
The CPU cooler and GPU in the pic don’t match the parts in the list
Ya the 8700k is kicking my friends 7800x in Th *** on bench marks
Ya I get over 72 FPS on ultra or high without antialiasing on almost every game
Ya the biggest game that I have is forz horizon 3 and it’s 58 gigs. But I don’t use a lot of storage.
Bro you did the same thing as me and only could fit one more 120mm fan on the back of the rad because the Asus gtx1080 is too long for the 460x!
I’ve just loved having 5.1GHZ and this guy told me 6 cores are abetter value.
Ya I think I was talking about 7700k vs 6850k price to performance and I get a bit heated with this other guy.
Oh yeah you have 2 500 GB ssds. I have only used 400gb of my hard drive and 100 of my ssd so I don’t really need a lot of space. Well it’s sad that my iPad has a higher refresh rate than my overlooked monitor. While 4K looks great whenever I use my friends 144hz my 72 look so bad.
Hey I remember talking / arguing with you before about someone’s else’s build when it came to 6 core CPUS from intlel. I guess you did switch to main stream after all!
Ya almost 4tb is a little overkill lol. Yeah I’m going to take the back part of my PSU cover off like you did. I also had my eye on that monitor but went with 4K because I’m stupid. Although for my first build I think I came out very well, you have a really refined erosion of what mine can be in a couple years.
This looks like what would have happened if my build went right and I didnt make crap choices for parts. Very sick!
Nice I wish that I had all synchronized lighting. Yeah I dont really get the point of RGB for ushering all of the colors at once I like it for the ability to buy any product and change the color to one that I want.
Thanks! Ya some good lighting would really make your build great! Mine is having some problems with one of its hue + strips and the H100i v2 logo.
