Isn't it pretty dangerous to disassemble PSUs like this? Cool idea, and great ambition building it yourself, but not sure it's worth the risk.
Super clean looking. If you get bored in the future you could sand and paint your CPU cooler's mounting brackets white. I was always put off by how big and visible the mounting hardware was for that cooler. But yeah regardless your build looks shmexy.
Nothing even that bad, I made a Fallout meme joke that I guess was too hurtful of a joke. You know the "everyone liked that" meme? I just said the opposite. OP also seems to have a sense of humor as he understands what he built and then said "fight me", but mods don't.
What a cool idea. I've seen dual loops before. I've seen distro blocks before. But using the surfaces/walls of the case to hold distro blocks for each loop, now that is some damn good thinking. Hats off to you, very good idea and well executed.
Super late reply, but I did replace the top fan with a 25mm fan after seeing your comment and it's way better. Thanks!
How many SSD you got? A lot.
How many fan you got? A lot.
For sure, that CPU with a 470x is definitely a good deal for $100. Thanks for sharing.
What Intel CPU did that computer have when you bought it for $100? Doesn't look like too much of a turd, but your new rig is definitely an improvement.
this is just inaccurate. nvidia still has performance advantage at almost every price point if you are buying a new GPU.
Eh it depends on what he's using it for tbh. But yes it's an odd pairing.
Computa protective services. And you can adopt the PC.
Thanks! It ended up going to family for a christmas present. An 11 year old boy is going to be stoked!
Sorry to hear about that, that is a super bummer. I am only selling locally in the San Francisco bay area, but if you live around there then yes.
ah for sure, it was hard to see. i hope you manage to fix it!
In the photos it doesn't look like your CPU power connector is plugged into the motherboard. It should be on the top left of the mobo, there will be a 4 or 8pin cable coming from your PSU to plug in on your motherboard. This is in addition to the big 24-pin you already have plugged in. I'm guessing this is why it isn't working but just going based off photos here!
RIP pcie x16 speeds
Heya. Nice build! Where did you get the backplate for your GPU? I just picked up the same one on eBay for a used parts build I'm doing and the backplate could spruce it up a bit.
Looks cool! I am confused how the second GPU is connected to the mobo? There's a PCIe x16 to M.2 adapter goin' on?
It's like that ****** joke my dad told me as a kid.
"Where does a 1000 pound gorilla sit? Anywhere he wants."
my favorite case for my favorite game! nice build.
It looks like the GPU says "RTX" on it, what is in there?
Always love me a good sleeper build.
thanks! definitely a fun case to mess around with, not too expensive.
not really! the CPU is 4c/4t and boosts up to 4.2 GHz. my timespy and firestrike scores are on par with some other folks running i7 4790k and even i7 6700k. it's a pretty well balanced system!
I am still really happy with the Rift S. After all the news about the Quest linking to a computer I think I still ended up with the right headset for my use case. Most of the time I play with a set of cheap earpod headphones in, or I use the integrated speakers in the headband, depending on the game. I haven't tried running the audio through the soundbar/sub because I like the directional-ness of the other two options, but maybe it would be cool for some content.
lol one of the more creative methods i've seen to hide an ugly CPU cooler. nice work.
Thanks for sharing, super clean!
This is great advice. I just picked up an i3 9100F and it is crazy how good it is for the price, especially compared the older i5's as you stated.
Thank you! I was stoked on the GPU deal too. I was suspicious at first but when I met up with him he seemed legit :).
I would definitely recommend giving it a go! You can usually sell the system and break even or make a few bucks to make it worth your time as well.
Wow you modded the top using a dremel? It looks incredibly clean. Can you share a little about your process there? Did you use a stencil?
It really looks like it was CNC'd or laser cut with how nice it is. Great work.
what do you how were they able to use it? they installed it in their case and plugged the connectors into the components, that's how.
It's crazy how an M.2 NVME drive is actually a decent option within a tight budget these days. Makes cable management so much nice and is so speedy.
I'm just blown away at how quickly that became a thing!
I hope you're trolling lol. He is showing the entire computer, and you're right, it doesn't have a graphics card - like many other builds on here. This is a site for showing off your PC build, which is exactly what OP is doing here.
I knew this was an issue with these motherboards, so with this one I just kept the original case and power button assembly! I decided to pimp out the case vs. try a power button hack. The guy buying the computer didn't even notice it was a Dell until I mentioned it.
I wish someone made an adapter!
i am equally as confused
one piece at a time, spread it out :)! good luck man
You can build a pretty phenomenal rig out of used parts for around $400, vs the $200-250 you would pay to do the upgrades on this one you are talking about, and you'd get much better performance out of the newer parts.
I would just clean this thing out and maybe do thermal paste/refresh windows install and call it good until your next system! Thanks for sharing w/ us.
Thanks! It was a pretty good 770 too, a big ol' Windforce one - I was happy to find that deal.
crashing issues eh? have you figured out what the cause is?
usually OC or memory related
Some people really just either don't know the value of what they have and don't research used pricing before selling (happens all the time) or they know and just want to get it gone as quick as possible. It definitely happens, and people like PCPP members have a good eye for catching deals like this.
WE FAST AS FU BOI!
Nice build :) very well selected.
Roger that, thanks for the reminder.
Wow thank you for laying it all out like that, I really appreciate it. Going to give this a go when I have some time!
Woah sweet, the Intel 4 core and mobo combo is finally price competitive, that's pretty cool. Nice build!
Yo how did you change the founder's edition Geforce logo to purple? Mine is liquid cooled now but when it was air cooled, that logo could only be green. I saw they had some not-finished software that said it might control the lights but I tried it at the time and it didn't work. Great build too btw.
I know I'm super late here, but any chance you have photos of the back side? Like how you configured the pump/res etc? Great build.
