Almost the same for me but it took me 1.5 years for my first build when I start to look into it.
and is funny how fast I upgraded. It hasn't even been a year and I have change everything but hard drives and CPU.
As you say it I'm not disappointed. It is a really good AIO. (I did a leak test outside the case tho) It looks nice in the PC and I can appreciate my board better. (tho it feels bit empty without big cooler) still looks better. I still have a bit of trust issue so I have left a paper towel over my GPU just in case. but Overall temps on idle when like for 21~24, 5 less and load Aida64 2hrs around 65~71, 8~9 less than with the Cryorig H5 push pull for $10 dollar more (I send the H5 back).
Thanks for the help and clearing my doubts.
I'll be posting it again next week and I'll send you the link if want to see. (I did squeeze the stock 120 fan in the bottom for 3 intakes)
Thanks for replying. This is going to be the first AIO I'm going to use. I have a Cryorig H5 universal which Im returning because the fans are making clicking noises that get me crazy, they are not really loud but I do have good hearing so... I saw the Captain 240 at $80 so $20 more didn't seems like a deal breaker.
So I'll be getting the Captain tomorrow and I'll do a leak test before putting it on.
(plugging the pump in pump header outside of the case and away of components and let it run for a few minutes just to make sure)
Thanks for telling me I ask SalazarStudio about it and told me "I've owned six (two I've purchased myself) and not one has ever leaked. Fine AIOs."
So base on it and your answer I pulled the trigger for it.
Besides I wanted to see more my board that the H5 was covering a lot :D
Hi, I want to know how the 240 EX is working for you.
Plan to change the Cryorig H5 I have (send it back because of fan noises annoying me). and I looking a this 240 EX at $80 on Amazon so I was thinking on it. But most reviews are really good, but few are about leaks on the same tubing. So i just wonder how was it, and how stiff the tubing are when you bend it or slightly rotated them to the position you wanted.
I have the same case So that's why I wonder
I basically have almost the same parts as you except for ram, board and drive.
1070 is the silver one.
I did OC the 6700k to 4.6 with +90 Offset so I want to know how OC on yours too (if have)
I bought GELID Solutions SL-PCI-02 120mm PCI Slot Fan The PCI bracket for the fans and holder all come with this Gelid fans (fans are 3 pins)
When I was still using my initial build here which had a 960 on it and it actually help it cold down a bit like 3-5 C and help push the hot air up so the top exhaust would get it faster, but with the 1070 it makes no difference to be honest and I don't have to exhaust anymore. I left it there after making the changes so it will push the hot air of the GPU up and suck by the rear fan. Temps are pretty good even with this small case. I also left it for aesthetic reasons, looks good.
Nice PC +1. Overall aesthetically, looks Ok, but you have the panel version so it doesnt matter much, tho your cable management on point. I have the side panel Version of this case I I gotta tell I love this case for small footprint for full size ATX boards. (Also have the 750w G3 PSU).
The only thing that I notice it the temps that you post. Idle at 38C and load at 90C that's quite high. It may vary if where you are is hot. I using the 6700k OC of 4.6 with offset +90. Getting max of 80~85C during 6hrs stress on Prime95 V26.6 and 2hrs on Realbench (benchmark, and stress).
So I just want to say to check your CPU and see if you put enough termalpaste or not. things like that, and if not I would actually recommend you to get an AIO if you even plan to OC later.
Overall excellent Build.
Like your build. I the Krait Mobo is great looks good. and the captain 240EX looks so good, I only wish they made a 280 size. I have your same case but Using a Cryorig H5 Universal push pull to cool the 6700K. I manage to OC it to 4.6 using offset of +90 (manual 1.330V~1.340V). Wish you luck with the silicon lottery for the 7700k.
Nice build, just wonder about Overclocking if you had try it and how much you got for your CPU and GPU.
I just yesterday OC my CPU to 4.6 with cache to 4.3, with 1.330V and later change for offset of +75. So far seems stable, haven't done hours long testing yet but so far it passes the same test multiple times in a row or different tests in a row (spend a whole day doing different tests). (btw Im using aircooler)
I just wonder if you won a silicon lottery.
Agree with the SSD, just the PSU should be fine for him later add a second GPU. There would be extra headroom for it.
Cannot deny your point. Well at least he has a open pad if doing other things than gaming. Really heavy multitasking could also benefit. (once I remember using like 9-10gb of ram by all the crap I had open, but couldn't close since I was using it all. I didn't pay attention how my CPU was doing that time)
Just repeating myself again. :D
In gaming I would agree, but if you are doing more than gaming the 1700 is a great value, and if OC to 3.7 or lucky to 4.0 compares or close enough to the 1800x in a way which that one competes in production for value with the 6900k in which case would make it really worth the price.
PD. have a 6700k myself, I do play but not yet editing or the sort.
Nice PC. But editing and things, look forward on Ryzen 5 chips, Ryzen 7 does it pretty well comparing on price/performance. Tho on gaming they are slower than the i7 counterparts, but they do it well at least no bad.
Also the extra cores of the ryzen 5 would help you a lot.
i5 and i7 are great been serious but it seems for me that Ryzen 5 can be good for the value.
Wait for release and benchmarks, see how they do and compare to the 4670k on value/performance/editing/core.
lol,I told him about the same about the CPU and GPU (First comment)
I just want to say, that ask your brother to move the CPU connector to the back to go to the top for more clean cable management and try to raise a bit the 24 pin too. just some cable management.
IF you like your GPU where it is is fine but first line, I feel it would be better.
To hold them I use a cable comb that came with the cables. You can look around for a set or buy them individually and on different colors.
If the set of cables, those are Phanteks cable extensions the combs come with the cables
Make sense. I was thinking that could had been that case for it. but overall nice setup, better than what I had with my laptop before I started getting into PCs. If you plan to upgrade on the future look forward Ryzen 5 it seem that could be really good. (4C 8T or 6C 12T). Also the refresh of the amd polaris line up 570 or 580, even Vega if they released it this year.
Well hope you the best with your little devil.
Nice budget build. To be honest I would have prioritize a better CPU and GPU over the mouse and keyboard (that's me). AMD needs some love and it is receiving it with Ryzen, but I would had chosen a intel chip in this one the Pentium G4560 is a great budget chip and a RX 470 That would improve it by a lot.
Parts with G4560 and RX470 and even here you could cut more corners like using the intel stock cooling and look for another case. or pick a 1050ti or RX460.
But at the end it all depend on you, if you like your build and are happy with it is great.
Also, if prices where you lived are higher or different that the reflected one it it more understandable.
PD. but if more of this things you already had it, there wasn't much that could have been done.
Apologize if it offend you, but these are some advise in case you upgrade.
Nice build, jut put the corsair fans pulling in. If it work better for you like that or if you like it is ok. It is just me being picky here I would like a mix up light there.
Thanks. Pictures 1, 4, 11, 13 and 19
The Define C it is indeed a really nice case with a lot of compatibilities. If it has a temper glass it would be amazing, but still it is really small ATX support case.
For light, I actually didn't went for really expensive light since when I first started my PC I didn't had enough for like the Hue+, so I pick eBay lights that connect using usb and are 100cm was enough for going to the sides and top edge of the case(no bottom lights), if you look closely on pictures 1, 4 and 11 you can see the white cable of the light going by the pci of the bottom fans (kind off squeeze it there) and on picture 13 and 19 you can see how it is connected. (they do have RGB connectivity but didn't try connecting to the RGB header of the Motherboard) It comes with a remote control (need to buy battery)
Great build. Nice deals you got on everything. I do have the the windowed version of the design C which I love (I had a zalman Z9 neo and it was too big) The fractal has a lot details, and thinks you can do with it. I see that you also manage to squeeze the EVGA G1 there, I did at first but change it for the G3 (sold the G1, I wanted a more silent pc though I should have gone with the no window approach but I like to pick inside every now and then, also the G1 fan was making a lot of noise for me). I only wish I had your luck on hard disk. that 500gb ssd and 3tb look sweet. The CPU cooler is great, I spend $60 in the Cryorig H5 universal + extra fan for push pull. temp are great, have nor yet got time to OC my CPU but idel 10% fan speed and temps are around 26C-28C.
Overall Nice and great build.
This time the z270 board have better looking than some z170 boards for about the same price. I was looking on using the MSI tomahawk. A full white board but the features on this ASRock board were better and the black board with white X centered had a appeal. I just wish the CPU cooler didn't cover it that much. But it still looks good.
Thanks for the complement.
Thanks. I took a lot but I pic only this. If I had more lighting were I was I would take them Abit different.
Well great that you like them. Thanks again.
Nice build. high end system. For case I would recommend the popular S340 elite, but for more compact (just a little) and still full atx support the fractal design C (I'm currently using it and is great) (is up to you). for cables depending of the color theme you want to do you can go to cable mod or extensions like the Phanteks PH-CB-CMBO, there are different colors you can use. Got a packet with 1x24pin, 2x2+6pinGPU and 1x4+4pin CPU
Still great build.
Nice build, only question is why a B150 Mobo instead of a Z170 or even Z270. I have the same CPU and using a Z270 board working perfectly find. but if you are didnt plan to OCing it that would explain. Faster core clock than the 6700 and only for $10-$15 more is reasonable. (havent OC but plan to).
My case is the shrinked taller brother. Fractal Design Cases are really nice. (Design C)
Thanks, appreciated. In regards with the cable combs, I use the ones that came with the cable extensions I use for the white set of cables. I search some and I found this that looks alike the ones Im using. There are other colors as well if you are going for an aesthetic combination.
Thanks. I had a set of small chess pieces laying around, and I took only the silver ones, to match with the GPU.
Great budget build, I have see reviews of the G4560 and indeed is best value for money (comparing to the i3 K) and the RX 470 is close to a 480 so you did good on it. (I just want to mention that I had seen some deals lately for 480 4gb for around $180, but probably the time you bought it it was the best price, still pretty good). If this components were out the time I first started to get into computers (3-4 years ago) my build would started like that. Now I got something better, but still for starting this is a great budget minded PC. Hope it works perfectly fine for you. +1
It is the little bro of my case. I saw your PC when I was deciding on the Design C or the S340 elite, and but the smaller size even being ATX got me. Really good case. (I was able to squeeze a 180mm PSU on it but I change it. but it fit) Nice build. +1
Same the whole white thing make me wanting to get it, but the Asrock have a nice looking and the X on it make it look really cool. plus the white sides look nice. So yeah the Asrock was the go for me. (Almost two weeks on using it, and no problems so far, so good motherboard)
Yeah that sold me too. I was looking at MSIZ270Tomahawk too but, the Asrock had more features than The MSI. Power delivery for the CPU was better and it also support crossfire and sli, dividing lanes on single GPU x16, 2 GPUs on x8 x8, which the MSI didn't. And Others That I dont remember.
I bought GELID Solutions SL-PCI-02 120mm PCI Slot Fan When I was still using my first build here which had a 960 on it and it actually help it cold down a bit like 3-5 C, but with the 1070 it makes no difference to be honest. I left it there after making the changes so it will push the hot air of the GPU up and suck by the rear fan. Temps are pretty good even with this small case. I also left it for aesthetic reasons, looks good.
Thanks, and if I ever see me on feature, I will screenshot it and add it to the gallery of pictures here.
I was adding the thermal pads that EVGA send me, so I change the paste while on it.
No problem. I was looking for a nice looking black and white board that fill all the holes for the case (no a small ATX board like I had before). What set me up completly (besides the $20 Mail and Rebate, was this videos from Salazar Studio, Tech Deals, and Tech City. At the end I like it a lot. haven't touch the OC but it looks pretty simple. (I just need time to OC and test, I'll do that another time.
I manage to fit a EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G1 PSU 180mm (L) PSU and it barely fit but you wont be able to move the 3.5 drive cage, so a smaller will give you more space, but you can fit a 180mm (I would say that this is the maximun, don't try to go for a longer than that trust me.) If your PSU is less than 180mm you should be fine. My is really tidy
pd. I haven't post this update of my pc, so if you check I'll have another case on my build. I'll be posting probably next week, need to make some changes.
The brackets I use came with the Gelid PCI fans That I bought on Ebay for about $22. The bracket and holder for fans come with them. if you want you can try and find only the holders and use other fans.
Nice cable management, really clean. I have the same case check here but I would just like to have a full size motherboard like yours, it looks better.
+1 for the cable management everything looks clean.
+1 Great build, and nice improvement from what you had before. Cable managment could be improve, but overall nice build. Im also using the Zalaman case check here and indeed it is a good case. The five included fans were good to start, but latter on you may want to change it for even quiter operetation.
Also I own a EVGA 1070, and rocking a 1080p Oc to 75hz which give me a great gaming. I know that Im not using the 1070 full potencial, but for now that will work. (everything I thrown at it runs it a max settings so Im happy with that) I also wonder how is you GPU OC, I manage to get my to 235+ on Core clock, and 510+ on Memory. (dont need it, but wanted to know how much I could get out of my card).
Nice build +1 for the parts. I just want to say something. I don't want to criticizes but cable management couldn't been better, routing all the cables on the back so it have a cleaner look. Also turn down your PSU so it intake the air from the bottom, helping out your GPU as the air wont go top and bottom conflicting with each other. ( ↑↑↑GPU↓↓↓PSU but ↑↑↑PSU, ↑↑↑GPU ) it would help temps on the GPU. Besides that it is a pretty cool build.
Hi. Nice Setup, and PC. bet the 1080 FTW is a beast.
I have a question. how are the temps of the 1080 on that case. just wondering. I may one day make a transition to mini from factor case, and the EVOLV ITX mini is one of my favorite mini ITX cases. +1 for the build and cleanest of your setup.
Nice First build +1. Same happen to me when I build my in which after 6 months sold the 960 to get a 1070. To be honest the 960 it is pretty good card for the price it was, but now the 480 or even 1060 3gb would do better. (I found my 1070 for 369 so I couldnt resist the deal.) Overall you can go along using the 960 for quite a while but if you save some money and sell your 960 you can go for more later.
That's is great. Hey while I was looking around the M.2 SSD I found this 256GB Toshiba OCZ RD400 for $150 which seems to be really good. Look at HardwareCanucks review video. base on the Read Speed of 2600 MB/s it sounds really good. Is like $50-$60 more than the Intel 600p but $20-$30 cheaper than the 950 pro.
At this point I'll be checking more reviews, and also how the pricing goes during some time, and also Sales. Black Friday and Cyber-Monday would be good time too look at them. But at the end I need to see how exactly Im going to use them as for Price per performance.
(Once start looking you end up finding other stuff that are good but price/performance it all get around. It gets fun when building a computer and looking for the right components)
Thanks a lot for this information. That one seems to be really good one with enough space for OS and basic programs. Compare to a regular ssd that one is way faster, and is like 25%-30% slower than the Samsung 950 PRO (using those number) for half the price. I may upgrade sooner than expected. (ahh the temptation is real here now).
I'll be checking it out, see if I can find reviews to check that everything seems good. (the reviews are positive so far.)
thanks for the comment, and I apologize if I sounded like you disrespect me. It is comprehensible, as like you said getting anything higher that this build for what I do, it is not necessary. I can upgrade it later down the line if necessary. Having this PC is like a dream to me to be honest (although haven't push it more since school is taking a lot of my time). been into PC's for more than 3 years but till this year I was able to build my own. It is not the King of the PCs but is something that with some effort I was able to get (just would love to enjoy it more. I really want winter vacation to come now at this point). Well wish you the best, hope you get yourself a PC you feel comfortable. And with OC my 6700k I may try it next week since Im kind off busy lately.
I'll try to keep post (just hope dont rise the V. to much as mistake and fry my CPU. that in a way be hilarious and sad).
If I had the extra cash I would be a happy man, but for now this build will do. I'm actually pretty happy with it since I was using a laptop with and I5-3210m and Intel HD 4000 graphics and to jump to I7 6700k (first wast 960) and 1070. For me this is ridiculous fast, but I also know I can push it more.
With OC the CPU, I'm still looking at videos on how to do it well to make sure I don't mess it out, and see how much I can with air cooler.
