Intel RST and Optane software is a joke when install for the first time but never used it since which is good. I do notice a different in loading times for various games than without it, so I do recommend it if you have it, I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to buy it though unless you can get the module for cheap.
perfect, OC to 5GHz just fine, and on a 144Hz 1080p runs almost everything at 200Hz
What was wrong with the ASUS motherboard? I was going to upgrade to that board for two m.2s
What monitor are you using and the FPS from the 1660ti?
With the 1700 I was able to run the ram at 2933Mhz without issues, above that I ran into issues, if you're running a newer processor you will have better luck I bet. icue runs the RGB perfectly.
Wow, everything looks amazing, Does the CPU cooler cover one of the RAM sticks, would something like RGB Pro look like it would fit?
Customer wanted intel, couldn't change their minds lol.
Yeah it's pretty much almost the limit if you want to use off the shelf parts.
Sweet, now I need a 3D printer.
Newegg has a 1700 and motherboard combo for $165, bought that and sold the MB with 2200g for $100. So I only technically paid $65
Is that a skeleton G305 mouse?
Wish they sold the inWin A1 without charger and PSU, but beautiful build.
I believe it was the only new part besides the PSU, my gf picked it out unknowingly.
It was a Radeon HD6790 I believe, It's loud and out of date. I threw it in there to get rid of it basically.
I got the 0.00 items for free, a perk for working in tech repair.
Is the Air boost loud or noticeable in games?
Does the HDD make a lot of noise for you, since it's directly bolted to the case? I have the 3TB BarraCuda and it's louder than all the fans in the case.
As I remember it ran well with a 4.0Ghz OC, I don't remember the temps though.
I see you're using a 1600w PSU with a 1070ti, why's that? Since it's a very expensive PSU.
Runs fine, slight bottleneck in some cases at 1080p but i'm using the Ti version. Only issue i ran into is the 3930k likes to use a lot of power and adds around $10 to the electricity bill.
Yes, most, if not all AiO coolers come with pre-applied thermal paste.
Depends were you buy it, I got mine from Newegg and it worked out the box and its Ryzen 2000 ready, currently 8/11/18 it's on sale for $79.99. I have had zero issues with this motherboard and it's a great buy.
I haven't really tried it, don't have that many fan headers.I knew SFX PSU's were small but next to a small ATX one makes a big difference. Currently at 1080p 144hz,but looking at 34" ultrawide 1440p. This case is a toaster and haven't found an efficient way to keeps the CPU temps down.
Sold it for $400
It was free and kept our cost down so it should be good.
The store I work at. Everyone wants Intel still and we had this laying around
I have the same case in black and currently looking at the same fans and same CPU cooler, crazy, looks amazing too.
After seeing Gamers Nexus video on the H500p I knew I couldn't get the original even if it was around a $60 difference.
The front exhaust fans look like their not doing much but pretty sure they are, but that cooler and overall build looks pretty sweet.
It's what they wanted, I remember when a 320GB HDD was huge so it'll last a while hopefully. After selling over 250+ Samsung SSD's I haven't had one come back bad and I like their warranties
I knew the short comings but didn't expect this kind of quality sadly, still looks good though.
