Post guts, specs, etc. Be sure to h8 and r8.
Awesome at video encoding
Needs more PSU.
Pro: Plays video games really well
Con: only video game I find fun is gta 5, and even that's starting to get boring
>sometimes I feel I would have been better off with an Xbox and a laptop
pros: does everything I need/want it to do
cons: fallout 4 isn't out yet ;.;
Runs cool as ice, makes kids on /g/ sperg out
GPUs will need most likely need replacing for VR.
Pros: It can pretty much do anything.
Cons: Loud, case has a big footprint.
Pro's: cool and silent, can watch all my anime at a steady 48fps
Con's: overkill, hardly ever play games anymore. VR and waifu AI probably won't be out for a few more years.
Kills games at 1080-1440
20+ TB storage
Nice and cool, even overclocked
Generous anime figure capacity
No room for future upgrades
The fuck do I do with all this RAM?
Have to pray that future GPUs will also be available with white coolers.
Good for Photoshop
Games w/good framerates
Wish I had an IPS monitor
Psu is a little overkill and not modular
Lots of fans=lots of dust, I need to get some filters
Pros: Looks good with no effort
Cons: Not high spec enough for me.
7/10 empty space errywhere
9/10 Get some cable combs
7/10 cables let you down
9/10 good job /g/
9/10 looks nice and clean
7/10 bit of a mess
9/10 I knocked a point off because weaboo
7/10 It just looks a bit meh
Based purely on looks
I wish I could build people computers for a living or even for just a part time thing, I'd love it.
Pros: I like it's looks, it's quiet, runs everything
Cons: It needs quality of life upgrades (SSD, better fans, dust protection)
Does everything i need flawlessly on two gorgeous 27"1080p IPS LED monitors.
Needs a dedicated 4TB for media instead of a 2TB. Won't play new games at max settings.
I hate doing rates out of ten, so I'll just tell you what I think
bit of a weird combination visually, not sure what you were trying to achieve. Otherwise nice, I like the case and cpu cooler especially.
love it, it's almost a perfect in terms of looks. Why not a white cpu cooler like a cryorig h5, though? Also what are you doing for front intake?
i still think you should paint your fan rings, still very nice.
i just love this compact little demon! The only critique I can make is on the colour coordination.
Amazing, I've always loved it.
I don't understand your air flow arrangement or choice of colours. Personally I'd paint the fan rings yellow and set the corsair logo yellow. And put that rad on the exhaust instead.
Looks yummy, very nice work
doesn't have that top-tier feng shui that a lot of other builds here has, still looks like a tough practical build
Major theme clashes here, plus I'm not personally a fan of those cable sleeves.
Pros: - Tiny
- Runs cool despite size b/c AP181 fan
- Preforms well for anything I throw at it
- Looks like a piece of nice stereo equipment rather than ricer-l33t-gaymer shit.
Cons: - Absolute pain in the ass to manage cables, took me 3 complete disassemblies to get it this efficient (although that's partially due to this being my first PC build & inexperience).
- Bought a too-big PSU initially, bought a still-big-but-fits PSU the second time.
- Not friendly to taking apart and making adjustments (nothing is toolless), had to buy thumbscrews for the back just to make getting inside easier.
I love this case but it's been very time consuming... welcome to PC building, I guess.
blah blah need cabling
>put it as the exhaust instead
The rad is just too big to be mounted right at the back. It's got a pci grille in the way. I get better temps at the front anyways, and its not like it heats up my card where it is. I'm not sure whats wrong with my airflow though, I went for positive, so the back fan stays off and the top run very low. As for painting the fans yellow, I'd then have to paint the HDD mounts aswell. Plus, I know I'd only end up butchering the job. I like it how it is, but I appreciate hearing what you think. Which guts are yours?
Pros: Videos is gr8, I can run almost anything.
Cons: As another anon pointed out, I should have gone with dual channel RAM. Also maybe an AIO cooler.
5960 seems to run hot for any bump in oc. if i run it stock i can barely get over 48.
also i blame it partly on running as a hackintosh without 100% speedstep/oc support. havent yet done a extended load in windows
these are my guts. there are many like them, but these are mine
NZXT radiator fans, purchased from the NZXT store. I like them better and think they're quieter than the stock Corsairs. Rubber screw mounts help reduce vibration. They also allow more light through, which was a nice bonus.
-Runs everything I throw at it at max settings
-Based rog armor
- the hdds ruin the aesthetic
>pushes my 970 with no issue in any game
>current motherboard still allows for upgrades
>no side window or ugly side fan mount
>limited in terms of rendering and converting
She's tiny. And seems to be able to do everything I could possibly want. Not too loud either. wifi built in for those times away.
Pro: Tiny and CPU/GPU never go above 50c
Con: Case is sliiightly too small to fit the 240mm radiator in. Next step up in size is a huge jump.
Pros: Dunno, performs reasonably well I guess
Cons: Can put out a shit load of heat under heavy load, no SATA III or USB 3.0, no audio output on the motherboard, PSU fan is the noisiest part of the system
>Needs more PSU.
Didn't get a chance to reply in the Specy thread. If your getting blue screens and you can narrow it down to a power issue (so not something like drivers) then either the power supply is faulty or the power regulation on the motherboard. The power supply would be the cheapest to replace so test with that first, but don't feel that you need to get an 800w+.
pros: Cat seems to like it
cons: Cat seems to like it
Pros: Very fast, can run any game maxed out. Never runs hot.
Cons: After upgrading to an i7 from an i5 some of my benchmark scores have actually gotten lower
Why does your cooler look like Devastator
can probably run anything i throw at it
i spent a a lot of money on a CSGO machine
Pros:Video games look great, everything boots and runs faster because of the SSD in the back.
Cons: I only play league and Diablo 3 atm, I just can't find a fun game to play.
It's quiet. Case looks nice.
Not nearly enough cores/threads. Not nearly enough RAM. Can heat up a room right quick. Want to add more storage, but I can't be assed to put the HDD racks back in.
Faster IPC and clocks higher, despite the crap TIM. The 6 core is only faster in an application that can use 6 cores.
And if you aren't a complete idiot you can find one for the same price as an unlocked Haswell.
2/10 replies. Well aren't you guys boring. FWIW that Corsair/10 job is a nice pc.
I would recommend a Phanteks over almost every other brand. It offers so much flexibility for how much it costs. The Pro M is a really good case that gives you just enough of what you need, I'd actually recommend it over their regular Enthoo Pro.
But stay away from their ITX case, it's a cheap, oversized, heat-trapping POS not at all worthy of an ITX build.
-R9 290 is fast as shit
-Very silent even while gaming
-Gpu gets hot hot hot
-Cpu idles at like 35 on max
-Hard drive is the loudest component beeps and shit
-PSU looks ugly
cpu now runs 5C hotter with gpu in it
Probably will get another fan to replace cardboard airflow management, which is to prevent the top fan from just recycling the air.
This one's at least 12 years old. I think it was released some time in 2001 but the earlier ones seem to have different front panel buttons so this one isn't quite as old as that.
Right behind the fan on your heatsink and using niggerrigged clips to mount them both onto your heatsink.
I have fan shrouds on my radiator fans and the temps went down by 4 degrees at load.
just havnt placed the LED yet, might not even secure them
i have better LED's coming in the mail with more lights on them 36>24
Thanks. Can't say I'd blame them though. Damn thing is over 50 pounds of metal, but that space is nice.
Thinking im doing something wrong with my fan setup though, that or could be doing something better with fan power. Im still setting everything up but these temps seem a bit above average for little to no work load going on at the time,
Front Panel on top for easy access under desk
Common heatsink with average performance
Don't have it anymore
-Quiet minus the CM fan in the back
-Plays everything I like at 1440p
-i7 is gr8 for productivity
-16 Gigs of ram
-8 gigs of Vram
-CPU cooler sucks warm air from the GPU
-Airflow is trash due to restrictive filters
-Little cable managment space
All in all I'd give it a 8/10
Something like that was the first thing that came to mind, however I haven't really noticed anyone else with anything similar (although I don't check out the memory in every photo).
Got mine from Scan for a quid each, wasn't expecting such a high polish for that price. They're copper but look more like brass with a gold colour.
Witnesses? I'm going to assume that's an autocorrect and you heatsinks. They're these: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/xclio-xtreme-copper-memory-cooler-spreader-for-ddr-ddr2-3-with-3m-thermal-bonding-very-hi-end
Did you buy an 850w PSU thinking it would suck your dick?
They're quite similar. You butthurt that someone decided to get same case, cpu cooler, and ram as you?
Considering this whole rig cost me essentially nothing, except for the ssd (worked some mix of gypsy and jew magic)...it does alright, but I plan on upgrading in the next few months.
Going to use this 290X as a stop gap till Pascal/Arctic Islands...but please somebody end my suffering..the stock cooling is so fucking loud...
GPU cooler like a bro.
CPU cooler not like a bro.
My friends, I need your advice. I want to build a gaming pc on a tight budget, but my last machine I built about 7 years ago and been using laptops ever since. They suck and I need a desktop.
So I have 500$ and no knowledge of parts compatibility. What I got so far:
GPU: Sapphire AMD R7 260X - 140$(with discount)
M/B: MSI 1150 MSI H81M-E33 - 55$
Power: Corsair Power Supply Vs550 - 50$
RAM: 4GB DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz - 2x21$
CPU and frame are yet to be chosen, and everything else I have a.i. HDD, mouse\keys\monitor\wi-fi etc.
What do you say?
New builder here:
I was wondering how this CPU cooler set up looks? Are the tubes ok? Is it ok to have the tubes going up?
Got a new case on the way, it should get here by the end of this week.
In the mean time, I've been dealing with this piece of shit for about 5 years. However, I didn't pay anything for it, so at least I don't have buyers remorse.
Humongous case for tons of airflow
Runs cold as ice (temps in Speccy are under load)
Handles massive amounts of recorded and synthesized audio with tons of insert effects without bogging down
Churns through video like a hot knife through butter
Corsair fans on the AIO are dogshit awful and loud, need replacing
Would like to switch from these old dual monitors to a single ultra-wide
Only has one open SATA port, which I need to attach a 4 or 6 gb HDD to for media... currently using 4tb of external USB 3 storage, which sort of sucks.
First pc tbh made it Sunday runs everything mostly maxed out at 4k buttery smooth. Sure beats playing dota on a Dell laptop cost around 4k dollars
Really like it, quiet and stable. Only wish i would have taken the 850watt PSU instead of this one. It does work now but who knows if the next generation of cards in either sli or crossfire (would probably be fucked with dual furys as well) will be alright with this amount of power.
Pros. It works and does everything I want it to do.
Cons. It's not a laptop
Just don't ever run stress tests lol
firstname.lastname@example.org consumes 400~450w running prime small fft
980 ti consumes 400w+ running occt
Pic somewhat related, except the cpu is only running linpack since that's the occt default test so it's consuming 150w~ less.
Gaming power is much more reasonable at 450w, although that'll probably change with dx12.
I did run Aida64 for an hour, granted the system did rev up quite a bit but the air pushed out from the PSU was not all that hot so i figured i should be alright!
I got a suspicion these things often can handle a bit more than they are specified for!
My Pro shits all over the previous Antec I had.
Only thing I don't like about the Pro M is the cutout for the drive bay in the front. I wish it was grill all the way up.
>I got a suspicion these things often can handle a bit more than they are specified for!
It's not unheard of. My 850W Seasonic for example (M12II EVO, so not even silver rated) can put out around 960W before shutting off.
Pros: Can Run stuff I guess
Cons: Ugly, and has a i7-5930k
The aida64 cpu test is kinda worthless and doesn't generate much heat, the fpu test on the other hand is insane and is even more stressful than prime.
I'm just giving you a small heads up on what your components are capable of consuming because I happen to have the same. Those evga 1200w gold units often goes on sale for like $90 so it's something to think about next time you see it.
Really? Your case fan cable is draped across your GPU. Your SATA cable still has the recycling sticker on it. It looks like you used a 6+8 pin for your motherboard power for some reason and the 6 pin is just hanging there.
If you are refering the the 4 pin that is just hanging there, thats for the cpu, the mobo has slots for 8 pin concectors there, but i just stuck a 4pin in and it works... and the other one doesnt fit
The 8 pin connector will allow your motherboard to draw more power without catching shit on fire, so yeah you should probably plug it in. If it doesn't fit then it's not the right connector, you're probably trying to jam a PCIE power cable into it (should be labelled either EPS or CPU).
