jix_91 1 Build 1 point 3 hours ago

do not spent money for hardware thats > 5 years old tbh... its not worth it - rather start with a new baseline... you "only" need a new motherboard and cpu really... the GTX 960 should be fine tbh...

Correct me if I am wrong, but you could throw in a (e.g.) GTX 1060 and still get 10bit compatibility?! It should be around 3x as fast... http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-Quadro-P600-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1060-6GB/m262616vs3639

Edit: "The DisplayPort 1.4 connections of the GTX 1060 furthermore allow for 8.1 Gbps of bandwidth per lane and offer superb color support through their Display Stream Compression technology. They can also drive 8K resolution at 60Hz, 4K resolution at a very speedy 120Hz and also support deep color 10-bit HDR 4K displays as an advanced bonus for next generation ultra HD monitors."

The motherboard is good, but you can go cheaper if you want...

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 2 days ago

If you want to cool the VRM you need a custom watercooling block for your motherboard ... or one that covers CPU and motherboard

Forum Topic "Which water cooler for overclocking the i9-7900x. Corsair - H100i v2 70.7 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler?"

basically you need a custom watercooling loop... somewhere between 400-1000$ depends on what you want

get Dual-Channel RAM .... 2x8 - since I doubt you will ever go for 4x16 - so you can get another 2x8 to have 32 total in quad channel - Ryzen benefits a LOT from dual/quad channel - you might even want to get DDR4-3000 / 3200 MHz Ram - google infinity fabric ryzen

the rest looks fine to me...

you always mount fans on a radiator... since you have to cool the water in the radiator by air-flow (mostly air pressure)

check the site of the manufacturer... they specify it...

Radiator Mount Locations Front: 120/240/280/360mm Top: 240mm Rear: 120mm

Forum Topic "Which water cooler for overclocking the i9-7900x. Corsair - H100i v2 70.7 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler?"

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 5 days ago

basically the cooling performance in AIOs comes from three things... 1. surface area (look at the size Height x Width x Depth) of the radiator (important!) 2. speed of fans (can be set afterwards so mostly negligible) 3. speed of the pump (mostly negligible)

the 240mm radiators mostly have 2 fans of 120mm x 120mm 280mm have 2 fans with 140mm x 140mm and 360 have 3 * 120mm x 120mm

What is the purpose of your build... gaming? If yes, you are spending a heck lot more than you probably need. I do not get, why you not get a 4k monitor with 1080Ti SLI's - they will be super bored with your 1440p monitor...

If I were you I'd get a GTX1060 6GB or go up for the 1070Ti - the 1070 is not a ton of value atm If you plan to play 1440p go 1070Ti if you only have a 1080p monitor the 1060 is more than enough

Forum Topic "Opinion needed"

jix_91 1 Build 2 points 13 days ago

the problem with pre built systems (most of the time) is, that you can not control the quality of the single components... e.g. I'd prefer a samsung ssd over one from ADATA - or G.Skill / Corsair RAM over Kingston (this listing might include subjective opinion!).

Your build is really solid!

Forum Topic "Storage configurations ideas?"

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 14 days ago

Are you aware of the differences between M.2 drives being PCI-E and SATA? The MX300 M.2 has a SATA interface and is just as fast as any regular 2.5" SSD - if you'd get a Samsung 960EVO instead you'd get an M.2 with PCI-E, which has (almost) 6x the read-speed and >2x the write speed of the MX300 M.2. I have an ASUS Z270G and installed my OS on a Samsung 960 EVO without any problems. I do not think, that gigabyte won't have updated their Z370 chipset to support M.2 drives. So you should be fine with the MX300 M.2!

If you fancy compute power - get a R7-1700 instead of the R5-1600, but I'd rather try to get a GTX1070Ti for smoother gameplay if in any way you can afford it.

if you do not need the 1gb network and only want wifi - get built in wifi e.g. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tqKhP6/asus-maximus-x-hero-wi-fi-ac-atx-lga1151-motherboard-maximus-x-hero-wi-fi-ac

I learned, that anything above the supported RAM frequency only ups your cost and not really the gain - so 2666mhz ram is fine.

cause the CPU is more than 4 years old... thats just something you dont want to buy - also you need DDR3 RAM which is outdated and you can throw away that motherboard since there wont be any new CPUs for it in the future... also - it is WAY BETTER: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-5-1600-vs-AMD-FX-9590/3919vs1812

cause RAM is really expensive at the moment and I would have gone way over 900$ with it - if you have 1000$ budget get 16 gigs in DUAL-Channel (2x8gig)
