Description

This build here is my current Gaming/Recording/Rendering Build as of Spring 2017. That simple.

Part Reviews

CPU

Superb budget quad-core. Great overclocker too. Bumped mine to 4.2 constant using a Cryorig M9a.

CPU Cooler

Best cooler I've used so I can't complain.

Thermal Compound

Its paste...

Motherboard

Enough connectivity for even mild power users.

Memory

16GB minimum is what I told myself, people laughed. Check my Task Manager, I'm pulling 9.5+GBs of usage. (Boom)

Storage

Got it free. Runs like a charm.

Storage

Go for a WD Caviar Blue. I'm terrified it'll fail every second its used.

Video Card

1080p Ultra gaming? Hell Yeah! Overclocking? Hell Yeah! Decently Priced? Hell Yeahh..... , only when on sale. But YEAH!

Case

Has what I need. Hell I can put a custom CPU Loop using the back grommets.

Power Supply

No fluxuation, good power bills, enough to juice an extra GPU.

Operating System

Its an OS....

Monitor

would be 4/5 if making videos weren't absolute hell in terms of fixing black border, resolution changes, and scaling during video editing.

Mouse

Awesome mouse, never felt like I died cause I am just bad and not bad mouse more than ever.

Re: HDD, is it making weird noises or generating bad sectors? We're way past the "Deathstar" era, and you probably have nothing to worry about if not.

??

80-wattHamster 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

You said you were terrified that it's going to fail. I was wondering why, and also trying to be reassuring.

The Deathstar comment is a reference to a specific model or models in the Deskstar line (can't remember if it was under IBM or Hitachi) that had a higher-than-average tendency to fail with little or no warning.

DominikKatona submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Hitachi had deskstar and also yeah it is just very loud and also slightly old so just for safety im planning on 2 wd black 1tb's 1 for game other for video editing storage

Are you able to play games and record them at 1080p and 60 FPS?

DominikKatona submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

It all depends. For the most apart I am able to do so but do to my multi tasking habits and multiple system tray programs I do lend quite a bit of my CPU's meager horsepower to other applications causing gaming and streaming performance to take a hit. I feel as though my used x4 760k was already not in the best condition seeing as stability and temperatures are problems at normal x4 760k overclock ranges.

Why do you use the same GPU, Mouse and Monitor as me? Dude, samesies!

DominikKatona submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Wierd

FlyinToasteronie 1 point 7 months ago

Hey, it's a small world!

Crimsonwolf8439 1 point 6 months ago

I got one question and one only. Can this build run overwatch at any decent framerates on even medium? Seriously, I need to know, since I'll be getting the same CPU -_-" Thanks in advance.

DominikKatona submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Okay so the GPU can run it at Ultra+ but not Epic however. the gpu doesnt even sweat. ur cpu however should do fine if unlike me you dont run other background programs. i will say that instense battles will for sure drop your frames from 60 to 40's.

should have gotten a gtx 1050ti

I was gonna ask that too

fn230 7 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Well, some people don't need 1080p. I have 1280x1024 monitors and they're grand.

Yeah, good point. What's going on here?

DominikKatona submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

sorry for the late reply, i happened to have 2 of them and thought why not. I however dsid find a way to render at 1080p 60fps high/ultra settings successfully.

fn230 7 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Alright, sounds good.

sadly enough the cases cable management is pretty horrible to work with so buying the psu was a good idea. I am however looking at ways to fix that.
