Looks good but all of your peripherals are black, so just wondering why you went with white over the black version of this case?

How many m.2 drives does your mobo have and, secondly, will any of them disable 1 or 2 of your SATA ports if occupied? Reason being, you could add another PCIe4 in the future if your 1TB becomes full.

I wouldn't put everything on that drive. Just Windows and your main work station software. Games and personal files should go onto SATA based devices. Games won't take advantage of NVMe speeds.

Nice! I've been flying DCS for a few years, mostly the Hornet, Gazelle and currently I'm learning the Viper. Just bought the Harrier last week but haven't had time to look at it. While the Tomcat is pretty cool I don't have any interest in it.

I know it's a bit too late but always connect and test (breadboarding) your main components outside of the case before beginning any build. You can catch this stuff early and it's easier to troubleshoot. I learned the hard way too during my first build :(

Is the CPU cooler plugged into the CPU fan header or the CPU Optional header? Are you using the supplied PSU cables or did you use custom sleeved cables? Do you see any lit mobo LEDs? Try clearing CMOS?

No problem. I usually buy a 3 way splitter with one lead being 4-pin and the other two as 3-pin. That way I only need to buy one PWM fan with other two non PWM (perhaps the ones that come with the case?) being controlled off the first. Basically a master/slave setup. Just make sure the PWM fan is rated same speed or LOWER than the 3-pin fans or you'll burn up the bearings if you exceed any RPM ratings.

I live in Canada too and recently bought these off amazon.ca 3 weeks ago.

https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/CTn8TW/corsair-hs70-pro-71-channel-headset-ca-9011211-na

Absolutely love them! Good sound for FPS, music and movies, decent mic quality for team comms (also has a mic windscreen) and comes with 7.1 Surround which can be disabled/enabled. No RGB which is a plus for me. Very lightweight and comfy, doesn't feel cheap, fits well and is adjustable, allows for my TrackIR to clip on easily. Semi open construction allows you to still hear the doorbell but filters out nearby conversations in the house. PC and PS4 compatible, can be wired and wireless.

Here's the supported storage types from MSI website compatibility tab:

https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/support/Z97S-SLI-Krait-Edition#support-hdd

Don't buy a SATA m.2 (B-key) as it's no faster than the 2.5 inch SSD SATA variant, which you already own. Going off of MSI storage compatibility page, choose one of these drives for faster speeds and better performance (PCI-e NVMe m.2 (M-Key)):

If you've already spent the money on an X570 board then use the PCIe4 speed advantage that board offers. Otherwise an X470 or B450 offering would've been a smarter purchase if you plan to settle for the same old PCIe3.

Don't worry about a lack of motherboard headers, you can always use fan splitters. The price of a budget board plus a fan splitter or two is probably still cheaper than buying a mobo with enough fan headers for your needs.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Buying used CPU's (Amazon)?"

  • 2 days ago

It's definitely a worthwhile risk to consider if you enjoy searching for $deals$. Usually it's a returned product that still works as advertised. Other big box retailers like Best Buy and Newegg usually sell "warehouse deals" open box items for less. Each return is inspected before being placed back into inventory and will have the same 30 day return/exchange option as a sealed item. I've returned monitors, mobos and other such items simply because they went on sale a week after receiving them. Amazon is stupidly notorious for having you ship the item back to them instead of a simple account credit for the difference. It's such a stupid policy and a wasteful use of resources.

You can also try manually adjusting your CPU fan curve within BIOS and perhaps reapplying fresh thermal paste; More is better than less but a pea sized amount is really all that's needed (the pre-applied paste on the cooler is often more than adequate though).

I agree. The added benefit would be installing an already updated version of Windows that won't require endless downloads/restarts. Disc copies are gonna be terribly obsolete.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "rgb software"

Those two software apps would likely conflict each other for control. One work around would be to disable the GPUs onboard lighting and buy a custom RGB backplate that plugs into an available header on your mobo. Otherwise you may have to decide which brand you like best and RMA/exchange the other component to match.

LPX is just as good (functionality speaking) as any full size RAM with tall heat spreaders. It's simply another option among many.

Wow! Looks amazing, that's a powerful machine you've built. May I ask what color you would've wanted to paint the walls? They don't look terrible, just modern earthy tones. You can try a vinyl wall covering, or even hang long window drapes as a backdrop behind the desk.

Thank you! I overclocked the CPU last summer to 4.9GHz @ 1.25V (36C idle/ 78C load). However, it doesn't look like that anymore. The core components are mostly still same as listed but it's in a different case now (Lian Li 011- Dynamic), with a bigger AIO cooler and I've since switched to a blacked out theme with less RGB. Different desk now too (IKEA Karlby/Alex desk with medium walnut surface on white drawers).

I would move the GPU to the top PCIe x16 slot so it runs at it's full speed. That middle slot will only provide you half the performance, or x8.

Ryzen 3200g and 3400g APUs are Zen+ so same architecture as Ryzen 2000 series. No BIOS update is needed to run on X470 or B450 boards.

I haven't tried pulling the CMOS battery or even testing the RGB headers so I'll give that a go. F4 option doesn't even register a change in BIOS when I save and reset. No mobo lights whatsoever even during first visit to BIOS during initial POST. Everything else you suggested above I have tried prior to submitting this topic. Aside from lighting, mobo works great in all other aspects. Thank you for replying 😊

That is a sweet looking black and white build you have but I think all of those stickers pasted on the front I/O really detracts from the overall look. There's multiple CPU stickers (confusing) and Windows Vista is ancient and isn't even installed to this PC. Peel everything!

The Ryzen 5 1600 AF is the 12nm version (not 14nm) and is quite comparable to the Ryzen 5 2600 in performance but for less money.

If you were to go to her parts list and click on her case (Meshify C), scroll to picture #8 where the solid side panel has been removed. Look where the 3 velcro straps are and you can see a bundle of cables dropping down from the front IO area.. Those cables are the: HD Audio, front USB3.0, power switch, reset switch, LED +/- leads, and mic/headphone jacks. These are the cables she indicated "she needs to buy".

I don't understand the GF comment regarding 'needing to buy cables for USB, audio, mic jacks on top'. I've built in that white Fractal Meshify C before and all of those cables she listed are not only included but hard wired into the case itself.

I've noticed many are opting for the lower slot when using this motherboard, probably because of the RGB. I think a select few are aware of the bandwidth issue but are still choosing form over function.

If purely for gaming then I'd go for the 3600 and 2080S. Those extra 2 cores on the 3700x won't help your gaming but that beefier GPU sure as heck will.
