I am also in the market for a TKL and came across this. I was immediately blown away by the options, price, and reviews. I'm just so confused as to why this isn't recommended more often? I always see people say razer, corsair, logitech, and sometimes other brands, but never see people recommend this board. Very excited to receive mine. Just gotta find Cherry MX clears with RGB housings.
I just went into my saved parts lists, and a list I just made yesterday(that didn't have the incompatibility issues when I first made it) is say it is incompatible as well. Probably just an issue with the website. I promise it does work, though.
I have no idea why it would be saying that. I have that same CPU and mobo with no problems at all.
He probably has a r1700 in the bigger build using an AIO, so the LED AMD cooler that came with it is on the r1300x. That's my guess.
I agree. I've also seen it on sale for ~$50 quite often. I got mine for $50 at Microcenter.
Would I able to connect these through the Scarlett 2i2 to use it's direct monitoring and the headphone amp at once?
You posted little to no information about this, so someone thought you were selling it. I'm assuming you meant to post it in deals due to what your post now says, but there still is no information about it. Link or something?
It took 2 weeks in between each response when I tried getting a refund for a g13 I bought from them. After month they finally told me all the could do was RMA. After asking how to get that process started they asked me to resend and re-verify all the information about my product that I already sent them once, to which I responded "Never mind with this replacement. I'll just sell it broken to someone who's willing to fix it and buy a Razer Tartarus instead. Of course that got them to respond faster. Less than a week later I got a new replacement in the mail. I was actually about to switch over to Razer, too.
So a 1060 would be the better option? What if I grab that monitor with a 1060 since it's IPS and 75hz anyway?
RAM still for sale? How much?
What kind of difference in performance am I going to notice comparing a 1600 to a 1300x or 1500x?
I appreciate all the responses! I have the r1600 myself, so I was more wondering if I could fit a 8400 in his build, but after reading what you guys had to say I think I'll stick with it for him as well. There's a stellar deal at my local microcenter for a 1600 and b350 mobo combo for $220.
I failed to mention that I already have that exact HDD for him, so this build option looks great, thank you!
This is amazing! Would the same GPU fit in this case, with a front mounted RAD, if it were mounted normally instead of horizontal? I'm currently working a similar build and I also absolutely want the ASUS Strix, but I love this case as well. Everywhere I looked has told me it won't fit, but stumbling upon your build has given me hope1
T U F F. +1
If you look at the completed builds for Meshify C, on this website, you'll see several people who have already done this.
I've got the same mobo and RAM, and although I can't answer the strop questions, I can tell you the trident Z RGB doesn't take up any extra pins aside from the actual DIMM slots themselves
How is the 650w compared to the EVGA SuperNOVA G3 650w?
I actually cannot think of a better way to put a custom loop in this case(which I have been trying to plan for a long time), and I'm incredibly jealous.
I can't stop looking at it. It's perfect.
Has to be mobile. Wouldn't have posted in 'Laptops' forums if he could get a desktop.
Gotcha. Thanks for the help!
I didn't know I had to wipe my drive clean, I could've sworn that I read somewhere it automatic has me do that with any new setup. I'll definitely do that tonight.
The code for the OS that came with my prebuilt is definitely OEM, so how is it working on my new mobo?
Thanks for the help!
Is there a difference, besides price, between the two? Or could I simply go with the cheaper one? Would this still be suitable if I plan to upgrade to a 1080ti around holiday time?
That's a great build and all, but +1 for crystal pepsi.
Looks like someone did. Just because you won't pay a certain price for something, doesn't mean someone else won't. Even if the price is ridiculous in your eyes.
I may have laughed a little too hard at this.
Most places I've researched have said mounting up top will interfere with RAM if you have the Trident Z RGB(which I have).
He's right though, the only difference between the two is that the G703 has a newer sensor and powerplay option. Honestly you probably won't even be able to tell the difference in the sensor, unless you're a professional gamer or happen to notice things like that.
Well sadly, I don't think it'll work. The website says GPU length with front mounted fans is 315mm. If you add the 30mm kraken rad, that only leaves you with 295. Sad day for me. But thank you for the help!
The website only gave "with fans" measurement options for gpu lengths. But since you made me go back and look I realized i could simply add the measurement of the rad with it. Thank you!
I couldn't agree more with you about the Yeti. I managed to get a shock mount for it(under $50 as well) that isn't as big or obnoxious as the Blue shock mount, like you said, the mic is just way too bulky and heavy.
LOL. Minus the 1050ti, this is the exact PC my workplace uses for their offices. Posting from one right now.
I'm stealing how you mounted your mic. It's exactly what I've been looking for. I currently have been moving it every other day because it always feels in the way. I also agree with your opinions of the Yeti. I currently have one and have been trying to sell it to buy an AT2020usb+, but having the hardest time trying to find a buying.
Amazing build as well. I've always been a big fan of that case, but I'm too partial to tempered glass to have picked that one over the Meshify C I just ordered.
If I could give a +1 for each paragraph you put in your description, I totally would.
Thanks! I just got the motherboard I wanted for roughly 50% off so I'll take that money I saved towards the 3000mhz ram now!
It's the ASUS board. The micro center isn't right near me, but it's one that's where my brother lives and I'll be visiting him this weekend.
I just found one at a microcenter that is Open Box for about $50. Is that worth it?
If this is true, it puts a huge wrench in my plans for a new build. I wanted a streaming build that could handle 1440p 144fps for esports games(mostly overwatch), and I was hoping this would do it. But at $400+, it's way too out of my price range. Looks like I'll have to lower my fps standards and go Ryzen, or keep using the POS I have and wait another year for prices to drop.
I'd be totally down to play with you as well. I'm in the same boat as you, all my irl friends are staying on xbox and ps4.
I'll add more RAM to start with. I don't exactly have the option of a new CPU quite yet, but if RAM doesn't help it might be a good enough excuse for a new comp. Thanks!
I'll probably get a 1080 ti anyway. The only place I could think of putting that saved money, if I were to stick to the 1080, would be getting more ram, but I already planned for 16gb.
This is good news for me. In my very long and drawn out(almost going on a year now) process of saving up for parts and reconstructing a list for my new build, I've wanted to make sure what I build can run do three things most importantly: Run Destiny 2 1440p with a high refresh rate monitor(with g-sync), Run Shadow of War at 1440p, and stream while doing either of those. With this news I now can start planning more around a 1600 or 1600x with a 1080 ti! The other games I play are currently handled well with my ****** FX-8350, so I know they are gonna be better with a Ryzen.
I'd say it's currently a great price. I was just recently trying to buy a 1050ti as well and in a week of searching I never once saw it that low. That was the specific card I was looking at, too. I ended up with the Gigabyte Windforce card for about $150.
I have to agree. The build is quite solid. I just recently picked up a 1050 ti after selling my rx 480(to pay bills), and I am absolutely loving the thing.
Good luck, pal!
Yeah, I feel you on this, because I was thinking the same thing. But with Intel's new CPUs coming out, I wouldn't be surprised if prices drop again, maybe be even lower than the current sales, just like Intel prices dropped with the Ryzen release. Basically I think it'll be very unlikely that the 1700 won't be on sale again after the 21st announcement, and it's probably a better idea to just wait it out.
Yeah, I just realised it isn't plugged it, lol. Well, I'm glad I could help, good luck with your build! PM me your Twitch(if that's where you'll stream from) name and I'll drop in to check it our sometime!
Yeah, I think that's the best option. I'm doing the same as well. What Intel announces the 21st will help me make my final decision on what I'm getting. I'm hoping for something with higher gaming performance than the 1600 but same productivity, without breaking the bank. For me, $300 is my absolute sweet spot for spending on a CPU. If Coffee lake doesn't impress, then I'm going 1700.
It's all good, doesn't actually affect me if you use it wrong, just thought I'd help out. The mic doesn't actually record from the top, like you have it pointed at you in the picture. If you just have the mic stand with that top end pointing striaght up, the mic records from the front face of the metal mesh. From there you can angel it to have that front facing whatever direction the sound is coming from. So for example, it is currently set up as if you were trying to record sounds coming from the desk directly below it, lol. I'm sorry this was a bit of a ramble, I'm not the best with words, but does any of what i said make sense?
