Love the build but I would have personally made a small change: the 8700k is an elite CPU, the 1070ti is not an elite GPU. Games benefit far more from a top tier GPU than a top tier CPU. So yea, would have saved a few dollars to invest in a better video card instead, especially given that it's a gaming rig.

Love the vertical mount though, gj :) +1

Nice build, what do you think about getting a wooden base to keep it off the carpet? The further your pc is from the floor, the less dust and foreign materials will be in your pc.

good stuff! +1

Incredible sir, I applaud your efforts and dedication. Have any thoughts to share on the 7980XE? Power usage, temps, rendering power, etc?

+1 mate, what a wonderful job.

What do you mean with only 480 watts? 80% efficiency does not mean that the psu will provide 20% less wattage, it means that it will pull up to 20% more wattage from the wall.

A psu converts "unclean & unstable" current from the wall into clean, stable current over multiple rails in order to supply consistent, reliable and precise wattage to specific sensitive components that require voltage regulation.

All power supplies must be able to provide the wattage declared on the packaging. Ergo, a 600w psu can provide 600w of power to the pc. Not 600 watts minus 20%.

This is why Platinum psu's are interesting - since they more efficiently pull watts from the wall, they ultimately reduce your power bill because little excess wattage pulled from the wall is lost in heat dissipation.

A 1,000w 80% efficient psu could potentially pull up to 1,200w at the wall to be able to supply the 1,000watts required by the pc. In this case, you'd be paying the 1,200w on your next electrical bill. :)

If ever you switch out to LL140s, make sure you check that you have enough clearance with your mobo. I also have the 570x and 140's won't fit with my Z270 mobo and/or with a 280 rad up there.

Very clean build mate, excellent work!

Look, while I have all the respect in the world for Tom's Hardware, I still have no idea what the data is they're using to make these claims. For good measure, I've just retested my 6 drives (nvme, ssd, hdd's) with Crystal Disk Mark 6.0.0 x64 and the results seem pretty clear.

Here are results for nvme vs ssd:

I'll let you guess which one is the nvme.

I'm more than open to changing my mind... when there's data to back it up. :\

OP, loving your two builds (cat and non-cat proof versions alike). I think you have a great eye for design and the clean cable management is just a superb finish. Great colors too!

+1, I'm quite impressed.

but the real question is: how's the cat liking the new build?

Links to substantiate your nvme claims?

I have the exact same nvme drive and all tests (analytical or anecdotal) I can muster put it firmly in the top tier. I have precisely no idea what you've tested to claim that "it is even slower than a normal 2.5" Sata 3."

(x) Doubt.

Building a PC, especially for enthusiasts, is not just about squeezing as many fps out of every dollar. With that logic, not a soul on earth should be buying above-average cars, skis, bicycles, headphones, shoes, phones, furniture, etc.

OP needs to spend just as much money as OP is willing and able to. Nothing more, nothing less. It's none of our business really and I sincerely doubt admins on PCPP are selecting "Featured PCs" based solely on price tag.

And even if they did attribute more weight to price tag than other criterion, wouldn't it make sense? You don't see many Honda Civics making the front page of Top Gear these days - there's just little to be impressed about "just another average car".

Price doesn't get you featured, the net result does. It just so happens that most "enthusiast"-class builds happen to be expensive.

Just out of curiosity, would you not consider a much lower-priced last-gen GPU to help you out during the waiting period? Even a second-hand one?

Yep, I would second that, you wouldn't want the adhesive to have an unsightly effect with heat over time. :)

  • 22 months ago

Just as a friendly precautionary note, your power supply is precisely at the minimum requirement (500w) for your gpu, and noting that you're rocking a K sku cpu, that the 1070 can be overclocked and that power supplies degrade over time it was worth mentioning. Anyway, it's likely you're not going to hit the 500w wall, but it's typically best not to be riiiiiiight at the min. spec. :)

Steve from Gamer's Nexus talked about PSU degradation in a video a while back: https://youtu.be/v9JmoZw3u0o?t=15m

Great setup though, loving the parts list and the overall finished look, gj mate! +1

I think the real issue here is dust... There comes a point where THAT much airflow will absolutely snow-cover your components in thick dust... Strange decisions in this build imo

Please sir, might you be so kind as to fill my prescription for icantbelieveitis? This is a pro build, in my opinion. This is absolutely stunning work and your eye for design is spot-on.

Wonderful work, you should be proud of both your achievements, be it school and this stupendous build.

You had me at mortar and pestle - what a wonderful touch.

Now this is super interesting! I love the look of it on the desk, super sleek. It looks to me like this would be the kind of build I'd sleeve my own cables for - primarily for length, there's a lot of extra cabling in there just dangling. I suppose that's expected. I wonder if there would be a way to go completely fanless too? A completely silent version of this build could be incredible. Perhaps as a future upgrade? :p

Have you figure out why you couldn't get your ram to clock higher? I'd be curious to hear about that.

good job for a first time build! Now you need to get yourself some full-length custom cables (or extensions if your case has ample cable management space left) for the ultimate "clean and polished" look!

How's the cryorig treating you? what do the temps look like idle vs load?

That's an interesting point, it hadn't dawned on me that they'll in fact be in a much better financial position (than maybe ever?) to go further head-to-head with Intel on next gen cpu's and Nvidia on gpu's.

I'm stoked to see that there's now serious competition in the market and that it's only poised to get even more brutal.

Finally a win for consumers. Jeez, about time!

Just out of curiosity, why are you insisting on "upgrading to whatever AMD has to offer in late 2018 or early 2019"? Why not go for team green?

I know you're waiting for the 1080p monitor but I thought it was funny to imagine just how insane the performance must be when gaming with that FE GPU and the 768p monitor :)
