Build Thread 2.0


Recommended Posts

If you're buying autumn/ winter you'd probably be looking at coffeelake rather than a sky/kaby i7 at that time. They'll have consumer 6 cores which ought to be cheaper than i9 but still have a long life, and not need so expensive a motherboard either. There's not a huge amount of info out about them yet though, and they've slipped release dates before.

 

If you're buying now the only real option is the 6700k or 7700/k on the Intel side if you want any sort of longevity. The non k 7700 is actually slower than Ryzen on a fair number of games though, since it can't overclock while the Ryzens all can, for out and out performance in games you'd need the k version and a decent cooler.

i think its time to look for a UPS with lithium batteries, because the one i have now is old and uses conventional batteries that i have to keep replacing. i wonder if lithium batteries are compatible with the one i have

Was debating upgrading my 6700K to 7700K, but after building a few 7700K systems for Disney at work, stress testing them showed them being a little too hot for my liking. I just got the 1080 Ti Seahawk X, which comes pre-overclocked at about 2ghz. The aio rad is nice as it doesn't throttle under load. Now I'm trying to sell my Titan X Pascal

Ordered some new parts today;

https://www.inet.se/kundvagn/visa/10472013/mitt-bygger-2017-06-17

I feel like a kid on christmas. Except Christmas is 6 days away. ;_;

 

And I need to point out one very important thing. The Obsidian 900D is 9cms taller than my fathers case. So I, after a bit more then a decade of teasing... win. \o/

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L.

No solid state drive, or do you already have one?

They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

I've got a 128gb Kingston SATA SSD. It serves it's purpose, but I'm getting myself an m2 in the autumn, or whenever AMD gets around to releasing vega. Getting a new GPU then too.

Not sure how I noticed a lack of an SSD but not a lack of a GPU...

Priorities! :p

 

I was considering throwing in a 580, but it seems such a waste. My 7970 can run anything at the moment well enough. I guess I have to wait a few more months for freesync, that's about it. :)

And Titan X Pascal just sold for $950. Was originally going to use it until Volta released, but unloading it for a faster and cheaper 1080ti (with a radiator to boot) would actually make me some money back. So yeah more power, more money  :sorcerer:

Other people's builds make me feel vaguely inadequate, the thread.

Yeah, it's an absolutely dreadful time to get a 580 with the mining boom. 2nd hand 570s are going for more than I paid for my 580 around a month ago. Surely that bubble will burst soon though.

I've always had that feeling myself when visiting this thread, considering I'm currently sitting on a Phenom II X4 955... That I bought shortly after release.

The 580 prices hasn't spiked here like they've done in other places(An XFX Radeon RX 580 8GB GTR-S Black Edition for 350'ish $), but still, it's a waste when a new circuit is just around the corner.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

Built the compuer now today. Dear god is the 900d big. It makes my computer room look tiny!

 

Had some issues with OC'ing in when I first tried to boot, some sort of autofeature. I disabled it and then it booted properly, I need to flash the BIOS I think, but I'm going to make a couple of attempts at getting the memories up to full speed first.

1080ti is 11GB bruh

I forgot... just like I forgot what motherboard is in each one (so I didn't bother to list them).

Also making an effort to eliminate all mechanical hard disk storage, for a fully solid state system. Currently starting out with NVME boot drive and dual 1tb SSDs for games and storage. It will still take awhile to match the mass storage space I once had with HDDs

Yeah, and quite a bit of money too :)

 

I might never go full SSD, I don't mind having mechanical disks as long term storage as long as they're the much much cheaper alternative. For the price of 3 TB SSD storage I can get 30 TB's of mechanical storage.

 

I will be getting myself something like 200-500GB SSD once Vega's out though.

 

While on SSDs though, can y'all give me some tips on what to look out for in SSDs, don't have much knowledge of them really.

There's too many decent options to really provide meaningful input, especially not knowing how much you value speed vs capacity. I'd say just look at Tom Hardware's main SSD articles [1, 2] if you want an idea of what's generally considered to be good drives combined with good prices here in the U.S. At the very least, it'll provide a baseline for finding stuff in Sweden. Their "best" lists aren't as good as they used to be, though, sadly... E: in fact, if you're not buying a PCIE/NVME drive, the SATA article is more or less worthless. Bah.

Appreciate the list mate :)

Longevity, price, capacity, speed, I would say. I'm primarilly looking to fill my m2 slot. Does anyone have any insight into the different NANDs and such? Those lists didn't go into any depth about such things.

 

Also, just overclocked my RAM to 3200, the motherboard automatically set the voltage to 1.35V, I'm going to have to take another day to see if I can lower that somewhat, step by step.

I'd go with the Samsung 960 M.2 they're pretty good

 

The new x299 boards can run those m.2 drives in RAID 0, which is pretty crazy

Well I love my laptop it has run everything nice on FULL HD max settings though honestly have not tried any superdemanding games that need 60+fps.

 

Acer Aspire VX5-591G 15.6" GAMING LAPTOP (black)
15.6 inch screen easy to carry into airplane even if you move to another country.
CPU: Intel Core i5-7300HQ
This particular Kaby Lake is 4 cores and 3,5GHz in TURBO MODE.

Graphic card: Nvidia GTX 1050Ti, 4 GB DDR5

Memory: 8 GB DDR4 RAM
1 TB HDD
Operating system: Windows 10. I do have separately a 24 inch gaming monitor with 1 ms response time and Flicker-free , TUV Low Blue Light technology.

 

Now this SSD. I don't need that ,but subjective taste and everyone decides what they want to buy. However SSD affects the Windows startup speed and how fast the game will load if you double click it so it starts from desktop. SSD does not affect actual gameplay when thinking of fps. Later this year towards Christmas I probably will buy more RAM though and increase RAM to 16GB RAM.

I don't think there are any turkeys left in the SSD field, so they're all generally reliable. The main choice is whether to go with a SATA based m2 or NVME m2. Most people will not see the speed benefits of NVME, there is a big improvement from platter to SSD but the extra speed from NVME is unnecessary for most. I personally went with a 525GB Crucial MX (SATA m2) as the NVME options were near twice the price, but given your parts list I'd have to second the Samsung 960. It is a pricey option though.

meanwhile my old FX8350 overheats and shuts down if i push it too much because of the summer heat. i avoid gaming because i can't afford to get a new CPU in case this one gets fried. i even cleaned up inside to make the cooler work better but while the average temps went a bit down, in the end there is no avoiding the overheating. maybe i should replace the thermal paste too

I gained about 5-10C from changing thermal paste on my old CPU, so yeah, that sounds like a good plan. :)

 

It did way more difference than cleaning out the fins.

i noticed that at idle the temperature jumps up to 49C and then slowly goes down to 35C then jumps up again... i think this is a sign of the thermal paste gone bad. haven't changed it since i got the CPU about 3 years ago
