It runs fantastic, runs everything flawlessly, and a decent amount of games (mostly older) at 4k.
It crushes VR games as well including HellBlade Seuna's Sacrifice, which according to Steam, they recommend a GTX 1080 to run. Runs at the normal VR 90fps mark, on the highest settings.
Great build but damn, you overspent like a Mofo. Don't you know that the 3 RAM companies are being sued again for price fixing......
Ya I might get a gpu bracket like you linked, I didn't think I had a lot of sag, but after your comment I went and looked at my card and it is actually sagging quite a bit. I'm sure nothing will be damaged if it stayed that way, but it would look better if it was level.
I don't know from experience but I would guess that's how most of the aftermarket GPU's are, with those heavy heat sinks and pipes?
Idk, alot of people tend to not build or sell pc speakers for some reason.
I recommend it although you might not notice a difference in terms of boot drives, Sata ssd's are pretty close to the same, in terms of boot times. All in all it's 2 less cables that you have in your pc.
Your new build is amazing, yeah it does have a little bit of sag, I might try getting that.
Yeah the gaming 4g doesn't come with a back plate, which is okay for me, they are mostly for looks anyways.
Yo yo, SirHaplin just finished my build, I will be adding final pictures later. Remember how I said you can build an amazing pc for a low price.
DANG!! 39C GPU under load!!! That is insane!
Those Logitech z623 speakers are dope huh!? :)
It runs perfectly for me, I started using the Bios-side of RGB fusion, but later used Gigabyte's App Center so I can change it in Windows. (They are both the same though)
I would update all of your drivers especially the BIOS, I updated everything before I started using my Pc.
If you were really big into transferring large files like 50GB or more at a time, maybe get the the 960 evo. There is almost no difference in terms of boot times between the WD Black and the 960 evo. Save the money and get the WD Black. My Pc boots in about 6-7 seconds, and the Welcome screen doesn't even exist, it just skips it.
Even when it comes to transfering large files the 960 evo only beats the WD Black in writes, reads are pretty close to the WD Black.
In short, save your money and get the WD BLACK.
Why is the Gpu Price never Included on these builds.......
Yo, I have been hearing lots of people's pumps failing at 6 months or so, keep me posted on yours!!!
True, but as long as he doesn't go SLi which is pretty much dying at this point, he should be fine. Especially since Cpu's and Gpu's are going down in power consumption overall each year.
Oh okay, are you saying you have the same fan curve for both the gpu and the front rad fans? Aw man the low 60's is a really good temp range!!!!
What CPU frequency are you running at, my brother has the 4670k and he runs his at 4.5ghz steady, with no crashes. Once I finish my pc I'll let you know my temps for the x52 on the top!!
I'm getting the 8600k and clocking it to 5ghz, most go to 5.2 or so but I'm gonna stick with a solid 5, so my my temps might be in the upper 60's or so.
I agree with most of what you said, but this build, has almost everything you listed as high end. He has a nearly 1tb SSD, 2 other SSD's, a 4Tb hDD (like you said) 1000watt power supply which is on the higher end of things, can't get a lot higher than that unless you going into server /commercial grade stuff, and he also has 32Gigs of RAM as well. Minus the custom cooled water-loop and his 1080 not being a ti I'd say overall it's a high end build, or at the very least upper mid to high end.
In terms of spending, (not related but something I wanted to point out)
I went through his build and he spent way more than he should have. To give one quick example, he could have bought 2 of the same Sandisk Ultra II 960GB's for 539.98, (which he only bought 1 of) instead of his total cost of all the individual ssd's that he bought. Which totals to be 759.83. So right there he could have saved $220 bucks from his HDD's.
He also didn't include his graphics card price, which most likely cost him 599.99 based on his post date and past price dates.
Ha so, no build like this should cost $4600 dollars in the year 2017.....
Given part of that reasons is he got creamed by inflated RAM prices as well.
That's all for now
Before I go into that, what is your definition of a high-end Pc? Are you talking about commercial grade stuff, or strictly consumer side, I'm talking about just the consumer side. Somebodies definition may be different even within that spectrum. Btw I loved your Princess Mononoke build, especially the gold pieces, looks awesome.
It would be an invalid argument
Pure money cost does not necessarily mean high end, if you do things right, you can have a high-end computer for a fraction of that $5000 dollar cost.
If I was to agree with this build saying "yeah this is a mid range" (which I don't think it is.) This is one overpriced and expensive "mid-ranged" PC build, I've ever seen....
What are your temps, I'm gonna get the kraken X52 which fits on top of the case and have fans on the front, that X62 looks super tight on the front with that thicker radiator? Does your gpu get hot?? Here is my build so far, I'm just patiently waiting to be able find/buy a gpu and for Ram prices to go down.
Dude where!!!!??? I've been looking for a gpu and Ram, here is my build so far!!!!! https://pcpartpicker.com/list/kwdryf
It's probably gonna be a few months before I get a card, and by that time, the new cards will be coming out in the summer... Fml...
I also can't bring myself to spend 160+ bucks for 16 gigs of DDR4 Ram when just last year it was like $60-70 bucks....
You can go to Edit part list, click the little gear icon and put in custom price and purchased already if you want.
All I want to know is how does one spend nearly 2 thousand dollars on a "Rebuild" lol
Nice cable management btw
No included price of the GPU?? You can manually add it in as an fyi
The one's I mentioned will be sooooo much better, the speakers you have, are smaller sized drivers at around 10 watts or so of power. The one's I mentioned are around 35 watts each, and are 3 inch drivers. The subwoofer you have is somewhere around 12-15 watts of power and it's around 4 to 4 1/2 inchs in size. Get either the Logitech z623 or the Klipsche Pro media 2.1, the subwoofer in the logitech is around 130 watts, RMS (so constant power level of 130) and the subwoofer is a 7 inch. Either pick is a good option like I said the 2 are nearly identical in terms of size and spec.
In short get one or the other and you will be blown away. I am honestly not exaggerating.
You can even search both of them on here, and read some brief reviews of the 2 sets,
the wattage rating on pc part picker is not correct btw, if you go and read the manual on klipsche's site the total rms is 200 watts not 120.
They are also THX certified so what more can I say?
This is a decent song to try if and when you get the speakers.......
Among the best sounding and overall is the Corsair Sb2500, that one is a lot more expensive and not worth the cost diff. (Usually 100 bucks more)
Yes get either the Logitech z623, or the klipsch promedia 2.1, those 2 are probably some of the best pc speakers out there. Most pc speakers don't have a decent subwoofer. These both do, and are practically identical. Even the wattage is the same, the only diff is Klipsch has 2 addition tweeters on it's 2 speakers, and the Logitechs subwoofer enclosure is a little bigger, and the subwoofer on the logitech is .5 inchs bigger.
I have the Logitech and my brother has the Klispch, I think the Klispch sounds a little better, and the logitech has a little more bass.
Logitech z5500 is a beast 5.1 too, I also have that one, I found for under $200 bucks at a pawn shop, it's better than it's newer older brother the z906.
Aw I see, use my headphones alot as well, but i also love cranking the speakera as well
Where did you get RAM for $154 bucks?????
Great build but, $3200 pc build and $10 speakers lol............
Awesome build, you should sell your Logitech z323 and get the z623 it's a much, much better system, it's 200w total rms vs your 30w and it's got a bigger 7 inch subwoofer. You can usually find for $99 bucks.
