If I were you, I would edit the description to add this info so it is more likely that people will see it.

But another note, great job.

I dont know why you are saying the cooler is huge when its actually a pretty small air cooler if you compare them to most aftermarket coolers

I recently cloned 2 os drive and it was a pain but i figured out how to do the cloning process:

0- back up what you dont want to move from the hard drive to the ssd to anohter drive or an external drive

1-download and install acronis true image at the link right here: http://www.adata.com/us/ss/software-5/

2-open the software and select the cloning utility. From there select the source drive(drive you wish to clone-in this case your hdd) and the target drive(the one you want to clone to-your ssd in this case) start the cloning process. The software will ask to reboot. After it does its thing, shut down the pc.

3-remove your hard drive(unplug it) and try to boot from the ssd. If it boots move to the next step. (it should work. If it does not, seek help). If it boots into windows, shut down your pc and plug your hard drive and go to next step.

4(this should be done in the first place but I put it there for whatever reason) -prepare a usb drive with windows 10 either by using the windows 10 utility or using rufus if you have a windows 10 iso on hand. Here are the respective links:

Windows 10 media creation tool( cant put the link. Currently on mobile and the site is redirecting me to another link)

Or

Rufus(ifyou have a windows iso already downloaded) :https://rufus.akeo.ie

5-plug in your usb drive and boot from it. Start the windows install process until you reach the poiny where it asksyou which drive you wish to instll it on. DO NOT INSTALL IT, you only want to format the hard drive. After you formated the main partition of the hard drive and deleted the secondary partitions, exit the windows installer and reboot

6- boot into windows. Follow these steps: Open an elevated command prompt by right-clicking Command Prompt and then choosing Run as Administrator.

Type diskpart. If the disk does not contain any partitions or volumes, skip to step 6.

At the DISKPART prompt, type list disk. Note the disk number you want to convert.

At the DISKPART prompt, type select disk <disknumber>.

At the DISKPART prompt, type clean.

At the DISKPART prompt, type convert gpt.

7- exit the command prompt and open the file manager. Right click on my pc and select "Manage". From there select storage. You should see a list of thgr drives in the drive in the bottom. Choose the one that is marked at unallocated. Right click on it, create a new volume and follow all the steps. Once this is done exit.

All is done at this point and you should have a system with an ssd and an empty hard drive ready to be written on.

Sorry for the long write up buy Ive had enough problems with this so wanted to simplify your life

Yeah but notheless getting faster ram on the intel side doesnt make much sense particularly replacing already decently fast ram. Depending if he beeds it, another 16 might be useful though

The weight of the machine must not be too different than the weight of the corsair one elite. The case weighs 3.5 kg, the cpu cooler 0.450 kg, the gpu an estimated 1 kg(the box with the card weighs 1.4 kg), the power supply 1.36 kg and another 1 kg for motherboard and miscellaneous like fans for a total of 7.31 kg. In the mean time, the corsair one elite weighs 7.4 kg. Even if my estimations is a bit under the real value it would not be by a large margin. So in the end, they would weigh about the same still.

Another thing as someone else mentionned, you shoudl straight up replace the cpu cooler not just upgrading the fan. Even noctua marks it as incompatible with coffee lake cpus. Proof here:https://noctua.at/en/nh_l9i_tdp_guidelines

I dont know what value you see but what i see is 1969 CAD so in USD it would be 1540$ which is straight up insane

Its probably just the bios tripping out. Software will usely access the right value fom the sensors. You'd think otherwise but sometimes thats how it is.

Nice red and blue combination. Usually not too much of a fan of red but here its nicely used. Props for that. Did she not want to build it herself or were you like let me build it. Let me build it. LET ME BUILD IT!

Not to mention about $700 cheaper than the Enthoo Elite

Was going to call out that you had put 1 more zero. Checked. Its actually right. Like wtf Phanteks. I mean it is a truly gorgeous case with incredible functional design but that doesnt mean people are ready to pay 1k for a case.

Anyway, on another note. the build is very dope. Try alternating the colors of the ram sticks from green to red.(1 red, 1 green, 1 red, 1 green) if possible that is.

well honestly replacing a cpu is such an easy thing to change and ssd make sucha big difference in usability that I do understand OP's choice of going with the ssd. For a budget gaming system and light workstation, this is just fine

A 7700k build would not be much faster than a 4790. You should rather go for a ryzen 7 1700 or even a 8700k if you want to stay with intel

Comment reply on PahPah_WissKey's Completed Build: "Upgradables"

  • 23 months ago
  • 1 point

Honestly if I were you, I would probably grab a 7700k. They are sold at about the same price as the 6700k and you already have a cpu to update the bios. The bios should always be kept at the most recent revision anyway. Or buy a 7600k since it is much cheaper than the i7 but performs the same in games

Edit: also from what I saw, at least from the us listings on pcpp, the 6700k is sold for more than the 7700k for some reason

As long as your gpu temps are fine, mounting the rad in the front is perfrctly fine. Itjust means that the rad intake is fresh air rather than hot air which means the cpu is going to run colder and the gpu a little bit hotter than it would in the other setup. Butin the other setuo the cpu would run a little hotter

I doesnt change anything the way he placed it over the backplate since the only usage for the backplate is aesthetic and as long as the fake grass is not terrible quality, the grass on the psu shroud shouldnt detach itself and get in the gpu fans

In the completed builds section, at the top left there is a create a completed build button.

I wish they would give you the ability in your saved parts lists to do so but I guess they want to avoid someone posting an incomplete build by error in the completed builds section

That rgb goodness. There is one statement that seems obvious though and is always the case.

current gpu is always 100%

As long as you dont use vsync or gsync, supposing that you are maxing your displays refresh rate, your gpu is always at 100% when gaming

I mean maybe but still not at the 200$ price point. its a bit utopian. The cpu that could compare would be in the price range of the 1700x which means a 300$ price tag.

Nice build but I have to question that sentence:

I'm hoping in 2019 that AMD releases an i7-8700K for around $200

So you are hoping that AMD will do a cpu at the level of what is currently the best cpu for gaming hands down for 200$ wut
