Kakaredesu's Completed Build: My First And Only

mdsmichigan 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

The Samsung 960 EVO is a much better value compared to the 960 Pro with the 50$ difference. The Pro offers a slightly higher write speed, but the 960 EVO's 1.2GB/s is incredibly sufficient for any use case.

Half a terabyte is a good sized ssd for windows operating system and multiple games you play a lot :)

It would also complement the other high quality and overall great small form factor build :)

Great build overall!
If you're worried about temps on that 1080ti you could look into getting a hybrid mount and putting the rad as case exhaust:
EVGA Hybrid Kit or
Kraken G12 & Corsair H55/60/75/80...

The wallpaper was rendered using an application my friend developed so you'll​ only find it in that picture. Unless you want an album you can PM me an email address and I'll send you some.

I regret to inform you the yellowy goodness in this build decreased drastically after taking that picture. The banana did not survive the photo-shoot.

Fantastic build by the way! The black and white theme reminds me of White Marble or Peppered Ash Granite so Peppered Ash?

It's hard to imagine such a costly build being very economical, but the choices you made on your parts list were very valuable and this build is only fractions of a difference in real life performance of some of the craziest builds out there. Very nicely done, glad everything worked out well and is nicely reported on.

Glad to see these updated again! It's pretty cool to see the video linked as well.
The only note I have is that Battlefield 1 has been out for six months now... maybe it's time to update this portion? I know the Excellent guide has a potential replacement description:

With this budget we decided to go all out on the graphics card. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 is one of the single best cards on the market right now. At 1080p or even 1440p you will not have any problems with AAA games and the 1070 is perfectly suited for VR gaming as well. When using a GTX 1070 you should consider stepping up your monitor to a 120/144hz screen for the best gaming experience.

Wow such a high quality part selection and a well written and pictured build. The decision to use the RGB for breathing black and white is a great idea!
As an owner of a couple ML120s, I'm glad to see their high quality and silence is also appreciated, but once you hit 80%+ you have ATC clearance :)

It's not just G.Skill, at it's current state (due to it's young age and rush to get it released) Ryzen is having difficulties with higher clocked RAM. Should be fixed in a firmware update eventually :)

An enterprise using consumer grade drives for continuous operation wouldn't make for a proper statistical analysis, so +1 for you.

But other than Seagate's class action lawsuit on their 3TB drive it's interesting to see a lack of data that doesn't reference Blackblaze's findings.

AdasT's Completed Build: My Budget pc

mdsmichigan 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Dang I was typing and you still replied faster.
Although why do you believe BlackBlaze isn't considered evidence? Having a sample size of 71,939+ drives is pretty good isn't it?

AdasT's Completed Build: My Budget pc

mdsmichigan 3 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

You have some statistics to back up that claim?

Last I checked BlackBlaze had Seagate and WD on par with each other.

MFG Drive Count Drive Failures Failure Rate
HGST 24545 132 0.60%
Seagate 45531 1029 2.65%

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Great Gaming Build

mdsmichigan 3 Builds 6 points 9 months ago

First Question: 7600 vs 7500

i5 Base Clock (GHz) Turbo Clock (GHz) Performance Compared to 7500 Price Price Compared to 7500
7400 3.0 3.5 -10% $188.75 @ OutletPC -3.861$
7500 3.4 3.8 N/A $196.33 @ OutletPC N/A
7600 3.5 3.9 +9% $216.99 @ SuperBiiz +10.523%
7600K 3.8 4.2 +19% Non-Overclocked +31% Overclocked $238.75 @ OutletPC +21.06%

Above is a quick comparison table for reference, using reputable UserBenchmark for performance and PCPartpicker for pricing information.
Note: pricing subject to change due to: location availability, shipping fees, coupons, sales, your crazy uncle who has used a spare, etc.

Looking at the table the 7600 and 7600kNon-OC both appear to be the same value as the 7500, this is noted by their performance being linearly related to their price. If you have the extra cash and you find that you would benefit from the extra GHz then I would recommend it. But if this is a web-browsing, low-load home server or you only play Goat Simulator or CS:GO, then the extra 20$-40$ would be much better spent on a better power supply or a steak dinner.

One thing to note is the value of the 7600k when it comes to overclocking. Userbenchmark reports an average 31% improvement at only a 20% increase in cost. While 31% is a very large difference the price is only the base cost of the processor! This does not include the extra 30$ to 130$ you would need to spend on a cooler, and the extra 40$-100$ on a z270 chipset to support overclocking. I wouldn't recommend overclocking to anyone who is not an enthusiast, I know several people who have gotten k series chips and never touched their frequency or even worse: they lost the silicon lottery and got a chip that would not overclock in the slightest. But if you're interested and the cash is there I would recommend posting your build to Parts List Opinions Wanted for very useful feedback so you aren't doing this.

Second Question: 350W PSU for Build Rated at 310W

For the Love that is everything please do not get a power supply within that close of its rating! You can risk system failure and permanent damage if you accidentally add a fan that likes to suck too much voltage. Imagine this: for an extra 20$ (remember what I said up above) you could've saved potentially 700$ because the cheap value power supply drew more current than it could handle, blew up, and took out your mobo, cpu, gpu, ssds, hdds, and even usb flash drives with it. Also, even if you get a 500W PSU make sure it's a reputable brand and check reviews. Again do not risk destroying everything for a couple dollars. The staff was kind enough to list a great selection of great value and reliable power supplies, if you decide not to pick what they've selected I would highly recommend searching a potential power supply on jonnyguru.com as their reviews are regarded as highly reputable.

Zeddy1267's Completed Build: DONG

mdsmichigan 3 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

While said in a somewhat interesting way, Chillsabre is absolutely correct about that power supply being very under powered for this build. You run the risk of a failure which would cause permanent damage to your CPU, GPU, RAM, SSDs, etc. and would destroy the motherboard.
