In the long run, AIOs' Chances to fail is very high due to the moving parts and have more noise. The difference these days between a Quality AIO and a A Quality Single Tower/ Double Tower Heatsink such as the Nh U12S

is

AIO has 5 Celsius temps lower however has more noise, chances of failing is higher, if tubing is cut by accident, may cause to leak

Where as the only thing that a Tower Heatsink has to worry about is the Fan itself.

bruh, as i said Skylake has become more efficient in Wattage and Heat efficiency which allows for coolers such as NH U12S and Cryorig h7 to cool it to 70C even when overclocked to 4.6ghz and 1.35v. Remember Chipsets have come a long way and these days AIOs are not a must for Overclocking really.

Same advice as usual but really pick the Cyorign H7 it works fine as heck and is able to handle the 6600K remember its skylake meaning the heat efficiency is better than previous generations. So yes just pick the cryorig h7.

again dont pick the 980ti u selected for heaven sake the cooler on it doesnt even work great :/ even the reference cooler is better. Just follow our advices for now if u want a good part list with parts that overall are great, dont just put the same exact builds asking for opinions when the builds are the same.

Ok heres why

Asus motherboards are tride and true for their quality. Tho i would admit that their RMA is quite bad right now. It only affects a very small amount of people cause if u think about it the amount of threads about RMA complains to the amount being bought everyday without any complain makes the complaining threads seem that it only affects like 1%. May be more but im lazy to do the math. Overall asus motherboards are very nice and the current one that he suggested is the one i have and its working fine here.

EVGA 980 ti, why do we even ask.

EVGA is a brand that has the best or one of the best RMA services and customer services by far. They make great quality products that people want and desire, the price premium compared to others is worth the customer service that they offer.

4K monitor or 1440p is a good question but really as of right now to run 4K at good frames without setting for any graphical settings being lowered, u need at least 2 980 tis where as 1440p can be powered by a single 980 ti. This is the only reason i could think of for him choosing a 1440p but yea

If its the one in ur Saved parts list then yes it is as you have an Nvidia Card.

remember

G-Sync = Nvidia

FreeSync = AMD

Just google the monitor that i have in my completed builds and should be there.

Its a you get what you pay for Scenario?

Corsair CX Series is usually the better choice for PSUs these cheap however, this is a fine PSU as its from EVGA and EVGA has one of the best customer support in the Industry. So you're fine

  • 46 months ago

I would really suggest it as even thought many people claim that the Human eye can only see 60FPS. Clearly they havent tried to see 144hz. Dont get a Benq 144hz. Probably his one is a gsync model or a freesync depending on his GPU.

I have an AOC monitor that is 1080P 144hz and Gsync model and my eyes are living the dream life.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Revised build. Need feedback"

I would recommend downgrading that to a 750w G2 by EVGA as cards in Pascal and Zen which are the next cards coming out and future cards will be very energy efficient compared to previous generations. With this in mind u can downgrade it and no worries.

If ur planning to use Photoshop programs and video editing, i would recommend getting 16Gb like 2x8GB sticks instead of 2x4 as in the long run, u limited urself to 16gb total and that would be nice.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Build Opinions?"

In this case its all great, only thing i would recommend is getting 1 stick of 8gb ram if u want more future proof as Dual channel and single channel doesnt make the computer faster and theres no performance gain from it.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "1st time build recs"

Got the 980TI for my 1080P Screen.

Definitely Worth it and no money wasted. As much as it is overkill, getting a 980ti for 1080p isnt overkill in the long run as games get more demanding and 1080p resolution needs more Vram. GTA 5 right now with 980ti at with most settings at Very high and settings maxed excluding msaa as turning on mfaa in the control panel gives msaa 4x performance but msaa 8x quality. Im reaching already 4.27gb of vram usage and count in with the fact im only getting 105fps by average. Sure saying 105fps by average is like me complaining but trust me, if u want to game nowadays. The standard is going to 144hz in the long run as 144hz is now cheap enough to be bought by anyone and soon getting 144fps will be the constant but that will still be in the long run. Not now tho.

P.S. No pitchforks pls i have prayed to gaben

Ugh. Yes and no. Upgrading a year later to totally fine and great. Only thing you would have to worry about is ur PSU failing in the next few months other than that its all good

  • 46 months ago

This is all great and fine but really switch the 850 pro to a 850 Evo allowing you to save some money to spend somewhere else.

Now as much as you say it has a shorter lifespan, it doesnt matter as some conditions must be met

  • Are you actually going to be writing 200GB Files everyday. If yes then the pro is fine, if not then switch to the 850 evo as the shorter lifespan doesn't matter as modern ssds last for 10+ years and if u think about it. Would u still want an SSD in 10 years when NVME has become the standard?

  • Also, in real world performance, the difference between 850 evo and 850 pro is almost not noticeable. Only thing ur really getting there is that extra few MBS write and read and like lifespan that wont matter at all in the next few years as technology gets better.

2nd - ur CPU Cooler.

If ur planning to upgrade to an i7 by all means this is great but if ur not planning to upgrade in the next 3 years to an i7 then dont bother getting the h240x as the i5 6600K doesnt overheat at all and considering skylake has lower temps than previous generation, this is overkill. Im using a Noctua NHU12S with an EK vardar fan and im getting temps max of 60C with OC at 4.1ghz at 1.25V. Even at i7 overclocked, a hyper 212 evo will be borderline great as i said, Intel has done great things with Skylake and its heat output

This CPU Cooler is a legend. The Tower heatsink design is just that good as expected of Noctua. The temperatures so far im getting have been max 62 Celsius. Maybe its due to the cold weather in the UK and the fact i have an EK Vardar f4 120mm as the fan instead of the NF F12 that came with it.

Overall, i do recommend this CPU cooler as its best for its value. Tho there are cheaper variants like the PH TC12DX. I would say that this beats it.

Also Max Temps are at 62 Celsius with 4.2Ghz OC at 1.25V

Only overclocked a little as my usage is not cpu intensive but rather on the gpu side

2 things would like to say is get a Dual Channel Ram. Dont get the 240M Crazy loud. Get the Kraken X61

850 Pro vs 850 Evo = Similar Performance not worth the extra monies

Case = Get a better one for the Price ur going for I would highly suggest get a good Looking case that u would lay ur holy eyes upon

No. Seriously Get a Sexy Looking Case if ur spending this much already

Im gonna go the AFM02B as im mounting the Noctua infront of the Define S as intake and theres gonna be 2 of them. The Define S has an intake filter so yeah i guess i would need shorter back ends unless its great to cut them off at the end

What do you say?

Thanks alot for the answers :D

Also I prefer the 2 in front 1 bottom instead of the 3 mainly because that I can fresh air immediately to my GPU :D

This is my planned build in the coming 2 months. Replacing the 2 gp-14 fans included with the 5 noctua fans 2 infront 1 bottom 2 exhaust

or 3 infront 1 bottom 1 exhaust

Which Config would be better also would dust be an issue if the top fan is exhaust as define s has no dust filter

Last question (Sorry im just a new guy here ) Would the GPU i chose for my build be somewhat heavy and bend the motherboard as i saw it when browsing around

Thanks for the suggestions and i think im gonna sacrifice some sound for the Performance of the 2000PWM IPPC fans

Also to control these fans at a good rate would a custom fan profile help alot?

Dont get a case thats 1.4K when other cases can do better and cheaper than the 1.4K and u woudl be able to spend mroe money on other parts of ur build also its too outdated. Why the 3770k and 670 SLI.

U can get better for 2000

i was also wanting the r1 but the thing that kicked me was the noise levels. is it loud in practical usage as from what i know is that the Difference in temperatures is negligible (1 - 2 Celsius) But the noise level in practical usage is it loud?
