Hey, Yeah it wouldnt be a bad idea, i bought all the gear from SCAN uk and they onlt had the 2600 in stock hence the choice.
That said, with the news i saw yesterday you would be even better going for the new Ryzen 3 3100 or 3300x as they should be around the same price point
Nice build, just put together a very similar parts list and ordered the parts for my wife as an upgrade!
How is it treating you up to this point?
Nice build, you should be fine with an aio in the front :)
This is freaking awesome! :)
My build although bigger has the cooler exhausting out the top with the front fans pulling fresh cool air in. rear fan still as an exhaust -
Cheers Liam, he does love it. Good on you for saving up yourself - means you can take real pride in it!
Not for its current configuration it didnt hth :)
From Top to Bottom its: 347mm
From Left to Right its: 400mm
Hope this helps :)
Good Call looks good :)
Cheers man! good luck with your son's build!
Dang it.. hoped no one would realise!
He games using the steam/x360 pad at the moment, i'm sure we will upgrade KB/Mouse at some point :)
With any luck he will pay for them too ;)
He did thanks :)
Cheers Dude :)
Haha awsome.. good day to be born then! i hope one day he will!
Thanks, i may see if he wants to upgrade the fans at some point :)
Cheers - he does indeed should give him many hours of enjoyment.
Cheers Buddy - good point will jiggle them around now!
No problem :)
+1 from me...
Interesting mounting of the SSD in the rear though!
EVGA PowerLink :)
Haha it was indeed! fits perfectly on top of an Ikea Alex desk topper next to her monitor (AOC 24")
Nice clean build you have there!
Cheers again. Just updated my rig this week and went for the lpx.
Cheers my man :)
How does the CPU cooler perform?
Cheers :D - a tight fit! now to find me someone to swap with!
Sweet build :) can you grab a picture from the top showing ram clearance with the vengance lpx?? Need to swap mine for some low profile for if/when i go custom loop or at least 240 aio.
No issues at all here chap :) you should be fine with what you have.
Try this for calculating how much you really need. 750 should be way above :)
Well i went for the FTW3 in the end :) getting them same kind of temps as yourself which is sweet. now to go and put some hours in some games!
Nice build - im looking at the SC2/FTW3 for a build that is almost the same as yours to upgrade from my 970.
Same case, i7 4790 h80i GT
How do you find the temps of the card as the cap is quite tight between the fan and basement :)
No real reason other than the retailer had only the one i got in stock at the time haha.
That would be where i went wrong then haha. Thanks for the comment i will update my review :)
Leaving the space in case she wants a GPU at a later date to play The SIMS :)
Very nice :)
My Mobo only has 2 headers + the CPU so i used one of these to get all my fans connected the 2x BF fans are connected to one and the 230mm is connected to the other.
As a note - heres an example of another one using 2x SSD in that configuration i mentioned.
Not too hard with a bit of effort and time :) theres quite good gap by the PSU on the other side of the pictures. :)
Nice simple build. A couple of changes i would make to your layout inside.
1 - Move both SSD out of the cages to the rear case door or the PSU cage (there should be room for both drives) and ditch the HDD cages - this will increase your airflow around CPU/mobo.
2- If you have the extra fans that came with the case may as well put both back on the front to push air around a bit more - im using them in mine and they are near enough silent.
Other than that great build.
One for you too! your build is very clean and tidy.
Try HWMonitor :)
:) Thanks very much!
Cheers buddy, the old case was a nightmare for cable management, at least with this case there is a gap near the PSU to tidy up the excesses.
It is a monster! does the job well though.
I Like what you've done with a tiny space!
Personally i think you should have done the whole case red apart from the details, the stripes look slightly rushed and not masked off correctly. also think it could do with a gloss top coat to make it look 'slick'
Sorry for the late reply. The highest CPU temp i have seen is 70 degrees C under full load after gaming for around an hour. the GTX550ti was quite hot and ambient temp in the case went up because of this.
I need to update my build - recently purchased a GTX970 and CPU temp seems to have dropped to about 67 highest.
Im running the cooling as follows - set up using ASUS AI Tweak to be 'silent' - so at the cost of some noise i could probably see things a little cooler.
120mm @ front is stock & pulling air into the case from the outside
80mm @ side is stock pushing hot hair out of the case - this was somthing i did with the 550Ti in, may switch it back and see if this changes anything.
CPU fan is stock intel
PSU is mounted to pull air in from the top vent and exhaust out the back
GPU is Asus Strix 970 - ive not seen temps over 60 degrees yet that i can remember. - i can confirm this next week for you.
Hey, I purchased the parts myself, where i was working they were quite cool and don't mind what we get up to as long as the job was fulfilled. so in free time i built this up :)
Thank you very much, I'm very happy with the build so far :)
