Will love to watch your build! Looking forward to it!

binaryshamy 1 point 24 days ago

Can't wait. I'm really curious about the thermals on the cpu with a 240 rad. Do you plan on overclocking the CPU?

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 4 points 23 days ago

We typically just run the clocks at stock settings for the initial benchmark run on the live stream, but we're curious as well, so will spend some time looking at overclocking for the Completed Build write-up that is usually published a week or so after the build.

binaryshamy 1 point 23 days ago

Awesome, thank you

jsoutherland89 4 Builds 1 point 23 days ago

Really interested in this!

Lobsterareawesome 4 Builds 1 point 23 days ago

well.. they probably wil disassemble the system cuz they dont need it

Urishima 5 points 22 days ago

Then they've chosen the right case. That thing basically disassembles itself, when it gets hit by a breeze.


I can't english today.

Crystalyx 1 point 24 days ago

I can tell that I am already liking this build, due to the new Cooler Master case which I have not seen in any build until now. The i7 8th Gen and the Team T-Force RGB Ram sticks are going to make this build aesthetically pleasing.

Lobsterareawesome 4 Builds 2 points 23 days ago

well.. the case has horrible airflow. and build quality is bad for Cooler master cases.

Drokovian 1 point 14 days ago

While it may look nice, Gamers Nexus had a lot of criticisms for it - keep in mind that they can afford to not pad their reviews for Cooler Master's sake to give us actual reviews. So it wouldn't really be recommended to buy the case.

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 1 point 23 days ago

The post above has been updated, but I wanted to mention in the comments as well that we had something come up at the last second and needed to bump the live stream by one day.

The live stream will now be on Friday, October 27th at 2PM CDT.

Sorry for the last minute confusion!

Friday is the 27th?

Next you could you do a build with the Asrock X299E ITX/AC?

lukart 1 point 7 days ago

Yes! that thing is a little beast!

kingawsume 1 point 22 days ago

Woah, they live! Will tune in if I can.

JCMsergox 2 Builds 1 point 21 days ago

Shucks, I'll be at school when this goes live.

jsoutherland89 4 Builds 1 point 21 days ago

Great Stream! Looking for the completed build with benchmarks!

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 2 points 21 days ago

Glad you enjoyed it! We'll run benchmarks on it next week. I'll also be sure to update the top of this post when the completed build write-up is posted.

manirellis_fridge 1 point 20 days ago

Now will y'all be hooking this case up to 2 wind turbines like Linus from LTT?

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 1 point 18 days ago

Oh man. I hadn't seen that until you asked. I think we'll just stick to the stock fans.. my ears are still ringing a bit after hearing that thing power on. :D

KoreanMoses 1 point 18 days ago

Nice build boss. Can this PC run 1920x1080 144hz Overwatch on EPIC settings?

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 1 point 18 days ago

We haven't run it through the benchmark suite yet, but given our previous Kaby Lake i7-7700K / 1080 Ti build managed around 174fps at 1440p on Epic, I think it looks pretty promising. ;)

slkipp 1 Build -1 points 24 days ago

Whats with the low wuality V750 psu?

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 2 points 24 days ago

Not sure I follow -- it's a pretty positively reviewed unit.

DPRutledge 1 Build 2 points 23 days ago

You know how people are. If they aren't Platinum Certified of at least 1000W and from EVGA or Corsair, people think they are bad quality

Lobsterareawesome 4 Builds 2 points 23 days ago

yep.. seasonic PSUs rule

Nightwing0529 1 Build 3 points 23 days ago

100% agree ^^

slkipp 1 Build 0 points 24 days ago

its not great though. I'd personally have chosen a TXM or G2/G3 in that slot, Excpeically because that CoolerMaster unit only has a 2 year warranty.

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 2 points 23 days ago

The V750 has a 5 year warranty, not 2.

One of the goals we place on planning our build videos is to intentionally try out new and different components. We've built with units that fall under the 3 series you mentioned, and will probably do so again, but there are plenty of great options to explore out there.

slkipp 1 Build 1 point 23 days ago

Neweggg said it only had a 2 years. but if cm says different, ok.

still not a fan of it - noisy thing.

Enrico411 2 points 22 days ago

2 years is what newegg has to give:

Limited Warranty period (parts): 2 years Limited Warranty period (labor): 2 years

But coolermaster is 5 years http://us.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/powersupply/gold/v750.html check specs.

PloniAlmoni 1 point 11 days ago

Regardless of the warranty, JonnyGuru (a very highly regarded source on printers) said it was a mediocre unit, not up to the previous standards of the semi-modular V750 from Cooler Master.
