Description

How about that GTX 1080 price heh?! Pulled parts from last cube budget build into an over the top motherboard & meshify case.

That 2400g doesn't hold back at games with the evga 1080 @ 4.0Ghz overclock

This was mainly for laughs & all, but it does well. That crosshair vii wifi is boss. I'm not kidding. Zero issues out of the box. I'll be moving to more case fans (soon) + 2700x, more ssd storage, and 16gb ram kit. I'll update this as I go. Thanks for viewing!

**8/31/18 added 3 pack of LL120 RGB fans from Corsair. I see what everyone was saying now. They are quiet sitting right next to me on my desk, and they look great too. Costly though.

**9/5/18 added better cable combs & cleaned up cables. Seen in 2nd image. Others have the old combs

**9/23/18 added Corsair 115i pro liquid cooler and Ryzen 2600x

This one gets it! But alas, I will update the full list to parts used and manually enter the prices I paid so you get an idea of $. I got some fairly good deals. Although, I assume most are familiar with these parts I used.

Lol it runs well for real I was surprised in the jump while still using the ryzen APU. It's similar in everyday performance & gaming to a 2600 with iGPU not in use.

In theory, this CPU+GPU combo can run AMD Freesync from an Nvidia GPU. Unfortunately the Crosshair has no display outputs for the 2400G to put that in practice.

That's true friend. I only used the 2400g purely because it was the only am4 cpu I had on hand from previous build. I almost went with the x470 asus strix for display port, but I ran into the $400 deal on the 1080 ftw2 so I went for it.

What color combination or general scheme do you all think looks the best? I've always been more or less white lights with some other variety accents. In this case I stuck with green mobo + GPU and white fans.

Nice build! did you use cable extensions? planning on getting sleeved cables too but both my 3,5" trays are occupied so there's like no space at all down there, not sure how to make it fit :D

Yes they are extensions got the on amazon. They are phanteks brand. You will have trouble getting them tucked in there nicely with full size PSU & hdd trays installed. I have full size psu but took trays out. Maybe shorter extensions.. Or your best shot is paying up for custom cables

Strong build there. I was working on mine Friday night, though I stuck with my Core V1 for it.

That case is pretty cool, I'd probably do some slick copper (*yes. copper) watercooling for it. A Ryzen 5 2600(X) upgrade would be fine, though I've seen Micro Center and other vendors selling the 2700 around $240, $270 for the 2700X. The 2600 is as low as $149.99 and the X variant costs $189.99 (on Micro Center). Now is a great time for CPU upgrades.

I want to get the 2700x to have the best! Where else did you see prices that low? Closest microcenter is 2hrs from me. I will most likely go for a 280mm corsair or EVGA aio cooler for plug & play. I don't have the time or patience to maintain custom loop these days.

I like the footprint for the meshify c. Highly recommend it. Has the front mesh for lots of air, just like the core v1. It's very compact for an ATX. I initially went for the meshify mini, but I swapped. It has the exact same dimensions but under 2inches shorter in height. There are no x470 motherboards in the matx size, the mini meshify is too big imo for itx - too much wasted space

Would you recommend the psu?

  • 12 months ago
  • 1 point

Sure would if it fits your power needs. I still use it now, no issues. I like evga power supplies. Personally I would pay a little more for a G3 evga 650-850W psu because it's a smaller unit with eco mode. Otherwise the G+ 650 is fine

If anyone in the future asks you to put more parts in the parts list , they mean in the parts list not the description. For instance right now to the left there are only 3 parts listed with a total of 772.76. CPU, MEMORY, MOBO, SSD/HDD, FANS ?

So if people ask now you know, if you didn't already.

Yeah I do actually know what he means. I did this at 4am on my phone. Not to mention that is the actual parts purchased. I had all that in description prior to the comment thanks
