AMD has good price:performance ratio. You can get good chips at a cheaper price point than Intel that will run any game. Intel chips have a higher ceiling when it comes to performance, overclock better.
Nvidia is still a, fair margin ahead of AMD in regards to GPU. The new Navi cards are good, not great. High temps compared to Nvidia. One area Nvidia has a distinct edge is software. The drivers are leagues better than AMD. AMD tends to fix a bug with an update and create 3 more. For reliability and consistency Intel and Nvidia are better than AMD. Price to performance, AMD has both beat. You should be happy with either choice
Awesome. Great build!! See if you can tighten up the power cables and hide them a little more behind. Maybe some braided cables? Keep Thanos, he looks cool, gold and purple braided cables along side that Thanos would look so awesome, but definately not necessary. Well done
Looks good. I might give your Aio fans a flip. Your sucking air in through front and immediately expelling it out the top through radiator. I'd suggest flipping ai fans to pull config and tossing in an exhaust fan. Should help out your thermals.
Slick looking build. That white Aio looks sweet
Also, I'm not familiar with the Fractal case, can those front mounted fans be moved up or down? If possible would sliding the bottom fan lower so it hits the gpu more directly be a possibility?
Your choking your GPU. You need to move it up to PCIe x16 slot. Your 2070 super is maxing out your x4 slot
Now that is a nice build. If you want to go crazy, grab some high heat paint and give that gpu the Micheal Jackson treatment
Be more pleasant. He did a good job. There are 4 black coolant lines that dominate the view. The case is black on white so cables show far easier. That motherboard is a nightmare for cable management so I think he did a fine job, yes a few things can be tucked away. Anytime you do black in white it's going to look more messy.
Perhaps he likes corsair better, perhaps he didn't like the look of the trident? There is nothing 3600 ram can do that 3200 can't at a home PC level.
That has to be the heaviest and most expensive case I've seen in a very long time. Fully loaded it must be pushing 70lbs
Very nice build. Those Galax Cards are really sexy looking with stock shroud tho
Looks great!! Can Quest handle Alyx?
I'm curious how the GPU heat situation is being that close to the PSU shroud? I deal with much the same in my h210i case but I think yours is even closer
I sometimes experienced it using Blender under heavy load, very rarely while gaming and very frequently while using Chrome browsing for some reason when I had 3 tabs open. Thought it was my ram at first but did the same with my other pc
No I didn't sleeve my own. I picked up some extensions from phanteks or something in Amazon, just coiled up original black ones down by the psu.
Is this a 'look how much tech I own' post?
I'm running F9, but I don't see any specific updates in that bios update from F8. Is the freezing only happening while running Fusion? Or random? Or when does it freeze on you?
Please take that beautiful case off the floor before someone kicks it. Can you ziptie the cables or drywall screw some hooks to run the cables up the wall?
Possible to mount PC on the wall behind your monitors?
Awesome build man, well done.
First off, sweet desk. That looks fantastic. Stain looks great with the piping. Douglas Fir?
2nd, please run that 5700XT hard to test it out. I had exact same card and had a lot of issues with flashing screens, and static/black screen. I'm sure it's driver related. I swapped over to Nvidia and had no issues. So make sure to hammer that card during the return days to make sure it's good for you.
Great looking build!
It wouldn't detect anything for me. Ram, fans and light strip. Once I update board bios, she ran beautifully. If you haven't already done it, try flashing the bios
It's gaming, not gayming. Instead of bottom feeding for your brother, make a deal where you get decent equipment instead of wasting money on parts he should replace on his own. Did you show him how to build a computer? You are being cheap as a brother. I replaced the tires on my sisters car, I didn't get the worst tires I could possibly find, I got good ones, and made a deal where she could pay me back, even if it was gradual.
Could be revealed next month. Rumors have it up to 50% faster, way more RT cores, more efficient 7nm, up to 20gb memory. With a price equal to 2080ti release. I'd hold on and wait for it. 2080ti will become redundant and should see a price drop if you decide for it
Haha nice, I love the 3600, slight overclock and it's now running same as 3600x. And your right. Prism cooler from 2700x is much nicer. I always recommend after market.
Also, if power draw is a concern, the 3600 draws much less than 2700x
For gaming, go for whatever is cheapest. I have a 2700x in my office and a 3600 for my HTPC. Video editing you'll benefit from extra cores with 2700x
You buy a hot 3900x? That's about half price.
2500 dollar build with 32gb ram and liquid cooling for YouTube and 'casual' gaming?
What kind of Japanese **** are you watching that everything is blurred?
I'm sure that's just running a few Cinebench loads back to back. Actual usage probably is 10c cooler. At least for my 3600 that's the case
I have had a meshify c and my bro in law has the pure base. What I can tell you for sure is the meshify c is quite a bit noisier. But my temps were far lower than his(albeit he's running an i7 and his fans are revving more. But meshify c has mesh front panel. If you want pure airflow performance, go meshify, if you want solid performance and a quieter build, go Pure Base. Both high quality cases
Cooler is sufficient to overclock to 3600x and more than capable to play any game. Tomahawk Max is a great board. Get the latest bios update to help boot ups. AM4 chips definately do not take a few minutes to boot. Check that you didn't break something in the pins.
Depending on what he's doing, 500gb Nvme fills up quickly. Having that Sata 1TB SSD for extra storage is great. Always upgrade a HDD to a SSD before upgrading motherboard and GPU
Great build. Man that looks good
What is that charger your mouse is sitting on?
It scares me seeing that PC up on a stand like that. Stand up after 3 or 4 beers and she's coming down
Flip them bottom fans. They are currently blowing out the coolest air in your case, they need to be sucking in the coolest ambient air from outside.
Looks great! Congrats on the cherry. I'd suggest rotating your exhaust fan and cpu fan clockwise. That will move the power cables for them to the top of your case, making it easier to tuck up over your cpu cooler and ram and then back through cable hole.
Also, see that little rectangular hole right in the middle of your psu shroud on the bottom? Maybe run your GPU power cable up through that and plug in. It'll look much cleaner.
Congrats on the build
Noctua comes with 2 fans, you also have 4 be quiet case fans I don't see a fan on the top and one won't fit at the exhaust, so where did the other 2 case fans go?
5700xt works perfectly fine on Tomahawk max. Once you flash bios to latest version it'll work perfectly with 3xxx series Ryzen CPUs. Only x570 benefit is pcie 4.0, which isn't supported on current gen GPUs.
Bro, there is absolutely no reason to water cool this system... But I'm sure glad you did. This looks fantastic. Very well done.
I agree with you. The black tubing looks super clean
Not saying it isn't. It's a really nice build. I'm just curious as to why he picked the parts for it. Workstation components, HTPC case, gaming machine. It's just not what I view is ideal compatibility and I just wanted to know if he picked his parts specifically or just got the most expensive parts possible
I'm curious to why you chose your cpu and case for gaming? Your not limited for space in your room there. Why didn't you go for a more roomy ITX case or mATX, drop down to a ryzen 9 3900x, use that extra money for a much better graphics card and premium cooling?
My VM workstation and analytics computer runs a 3950x and I've noticed less than 10% increase over my partners 3900x. For gaming you would see no performance boost for price increase. 64gb ram for gaming? You'll see zero increase in FPS, only will notice when you have 10 or 20 applications open at once.
Nice build, very compact. But 95c on your CPU is to high. You'll be thermal throttling the entire system during gaming, and the fan isn't sufficient for heavy graphical workloads.
Don't fear Intel vulnerabilities. Unless you're a data center storing millions of information. Fear Facebook far more
It may bug you because you'll know, but nobody else will... If you want to help thermals with an ITX case like this horizontally, grab a laptop cooling pad and lay your case down on that.
Either way, nice job on the build!
Great job fitting all that in. That XFX 580 does pump out a lot of heat. When I upgraded my rx580 to a 1660ti, my thermals dropped from 79c to 64c at much higher settings. But that's not something for a friend's computer ;)
Amazing. Very nice. Where did you find the Galax card? I've been dying to find them online
Looks good. And yes, uploading pictures here is a pain.
I would suggest just clickin the XMP option in bios to boost your ram. It's tough to notice in single view, but if you could do side by side you would see the difference.
That GPU is definately the star of the show. I probably woulda spent a few dollars more for the 3600 ryzen but 2600 is fine for now
Hopefully this beast wasn't the cause of her now being your ex
That's an ITX case? Wow, I though the NZXT h200 was big.
Looks great though!!
Looks great! Beastly little guy
In no way will his ram bottleneck this system. 8gb is more than capable for all his needs. He has done great balancing everything, nothing is out of place here.
Well done, earning money to build your first system is great start.
Good to know. I have an AMD in my ITX but will soon be building a beast for 4K video. Only my laptop has the balls right now. What were the issues to watch out for?
Nice build, when I finished my degree I could barely afford rent
Nice build. Out of curiosity, what made you go with the 9900X over the AMD 3950X? The 16c 3950X is an absolute monster in render times, you find the 9900X performing better?
Great build! How many meters long is that graphics card?
Great looking build. Snag a Ryzen 3600 or 3700 if your worried about heat. But I think you'll be ok
