Unfortunately man, the card is too good xD
Very nice +1 what's that case though, not seen anything like that from Thermal take?
Yeah I know xD, it was a second hand NH-D15 from a friend, I just wanted to get a build up as soon as possible xD
P.P.S living the name xD
Thanks, it was tough to get here in the UK too :( had to wait 2 months longer and by the time I got one over half were gone xD
Thanks so much for the recommendation and well wishes :D
Cheers, and will do :D
For that price point, that is a very compelling build, I can assure you that the MSI Armor OC RX 580 is a great, quiet, and cool card, and I can easily handle 1080p 60fps on Witcher 3 Ultra :D The only recommendation that I would make is change the R5 1600X to a 1600,and use the extra money on a faster/larger SSD, other than, well done!
Definitely upgrading to Ryzen, but I have to wait until my friend gets Threadripper (whenever it gets released) so I can buy his R7 1700X and his Asus X370 Crosshair VI Hero off of him for just £225!!!
Just side panels off would be nice :D
Should've dropped a 1080 and get a desk instead xD can't be comfortable gaming surely :/ regardless, the setup is beautiful with the two-tone monitors, also, kinda the definition of a sleeper system with that case xD have a +1!
Good part selection +1!
But why did you buy an RGB CPU cooler and BEAUTIFUL RGB RAM, and then just set them to red/orange xD regardless, more pics would be nice :D
It's a shame that they've had bad experiences, must've been quite unlucky in the "Silicon Lottery" as the typical problems that people have with AMD GPU's is that they're core clocks are typically slower and their GPU packages run hotter, but AMD provides more VRAM memory and memory bandwidth for a smaller budget. But since you've got a 7700K, I can now see why you went with the 1060 6GB as the higher core clock speed will stop the 7700K being held back in 1080p gaming, however, the positives that I mentioned above with the RX 580 and RX 480 "AMD provides more VRAM memory and memory bandwidth" means that you would be able to play at 1440p and even 2k with more frames from AMD's offerings. Oh well, I hope the card you got serves you well, and you shouldn't have any trouble with overheating, good luck :)
Another very nice PC from you, have a +1!
Very nice build, attractive purple/pink theme. +1!
I never said it was/would be you though xD I was just saying that there are people out there that would never mix AMD with either Intel or NVIDIA :/
He's silly, jk, they're pretty unknown about atm, I'm one of the only people to have left a review on a RX 580 8GB (on PC part picker) so I don't blame him.
Now this is RGB fine right! +1!
Meh, too much RGB for my liking, but I respect the part choices so +1!
I respect that RGB GSkill RAM. I respect it a lot.
Nice and clean build, be ready for the NVIDIA and Intel fanboys that will moan at you for mixing AMD GPU with an Intel CPU. Other than that, it's easy great part choices, good cable management, and good photos :)
The RX 480 is a very strong card, getting 60fps and more in games like the Witcher 3, GTA V and even Doom (all on second highest settings)!
+1'd, clean up your cables, and good part choices and cooling inside the case.
Firstly, I double checked my sources and I meant 1700 not the 1700X (my bad). Secondly, by better, I don't mean "the 1600X is better in every single way to the 1700", the 1700 has more cores and therefore, does better in multi-threaded and multi-core applications, however, the 1600X can go blow-to-blow with 1700 (frequently besting it too) for $60 - $70 less.
Yep, for real, it's weird tho for sure.
Beautiful custom work. You bought so many good components, but the ram must be quite slow operating sub-2000mhz? And congrats for buying a good brand-assured PSU, I've seen so many builds fail because they cheaped out and bought a random, cheap, high-wattage PSU that just exploded or shorted out after a few hours.
More internal photos would be appreciated, always keen to see how people deal with SFF (small form-factor) builds and what obstacles they had to overcome to get everything functioning. Other then that, congrats for building in such a tiny case, must have been pretty roomy without a graphics card though.
Perhaps with the 7700K issue, you may have forgotten to remove the plastic seal that comes on the contact surface of the H100i, so when the CPU was running, barely any heat was making it through to the actual AIO liquid, due ot poor heat conduction.
Whatever the problem was/is, this is a very nice build and I look forward to seeing your Ryzen Build. Just a few pointers for the Ryzen, buy a PSU that's around 100W more than what you need as the best bit about Ryzen is the fact that it's unlocked for overclocking. On another note, check the chipset of the motherboard that you are buying as the A320 don't allow for overclocking but are really cheap, the B350 allows for overclocking but has poor crossfire (multiple GPU's) performance but is mid-tier in price, and the X370 has everything you could possibly want from a motherboard.
Also, my piece of advice on what Ryzen CPU to get would be the new Ryzen 5 1600x as it has been shown to outperform 1700's and occasionally 1700X's when tweaked correctly, plus it's around $249 MSRP (bargain!).
Newer pics have been added if you would like to see them, however, the lighting wouldn't work too well, so I tried my best.
Thanks man, I'll add new pics soon!
Did the Hyper 212 EVO fit as I'm unaware of it having AM4 socket support.
