st0rch's Completed Build: Coffee & Cream

Anyansayo 2 points 4 days ago

I was basically planning on doing a scaled down version of this with a 7700K and a 1070 and a bit less SSD storage. Looks great. I have always loved the aesthetics of the NZXT Kraken X62.

Impressive aesthetics.

Wow, that is a lot in a relatively small space. Good job. Especially for the price.

AeliosZero's Completed Build: After so many years I Finally Achieved my Dream Build!

Anyansayo 1 point 1 month ago

I believe so; since your board is an MSI one and G.Skill is designed to do it's RGB pattern configuration with Asus Aura, Mystic Light would be the problem here. I did hear that they were trying to fix that issue in some sort of update, but even if they did, it is very likely that there are still issues. Thank you for the information by the way. (So would you recommend for me to go on the Optane route since it works pretty well, or would you say that an SSD would be a better idea?)

Or a new i3 8350K. That is way better than any R3. (Or 5)

Definitely. I can only imagine. I have an FX-4300 and 8GB of some really cheap DDR3. And it destroys the performance of my 1060.

About the RGB issue, I have heard that the reason why G.Skill RAM lighting issues on MSI boards is because MSI is running Mystic Light and Trident Z RGB is built to most properly run Aura Sync. I think that this look pretty good. I did notice that Optane sticker on the side of the case. If you are running Optane, how is it? I am wondering because I sort of want to use some of it instead of spending a good amount of money on an SSD and just boost my 3TB drive. How has it been performing for your PC?

Very good. I really am impressed with Intel's performance increases with the new Coffee Lake Architecture.

TheTrippyTree's Completed Build: Literal Garbage

Anyansayo 2 points 1 month ago

I'm pretty sure that your keyboard is the most expensive part. I was laughing al the way through your description. I guess that you can say that they don't make them like this anymore.

Zone6Weeb's Completed Build: Compromise? Never heard of it.

Anyansayo 1 point 1 month ago

I am going to do something with the same case and cooler and RAM and some other things. Yours turned out really good.

Zone6Weeb's Completed Build: Compromise? Never heard of it.

Looks great.

redcraft773's Completed Build: Bloodworks 3.0

Anyansayo 1 point 1 month ago

Absolutely amazing.

SlasheI2's Completed Build: ? PROJECT: INFINITY (First Gaming Build) ?

Anyansayo 1 point 1 month ago

Absolutely amazing. Your work on the infinity mirror is masterful. The only thing that I can say that needs to be improved on my opinion is the cooler. Usually with CPUs like the 7700K, AIOs are pretty much the way to go.

tusing's Completed Build: First watercooled build! (7900X + 2x 1080 Ti)

Anyansayo 2 points 2 months ago

This looks great. This may be one of the quickest builds to get featured that I have ever seen. That probably tells you how impressive it is.

Seriously, the performance for size in this machine is remarkable.

BoyScout's Completed Build: ASUS STRIX X299-E Gaming / Inwin 805 Infinity Build

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

This looks great, but I do think that it is a bit pricey especially for not having a custom loop. Speaking of custom loops; has PCPP ever done a build with EKWB or something like that? Or are there any plans to.

Also, I was wondering if that RGB that I see in the front of the case is just part of the case, or did you have to pre-install it?

philphaser's Completed Build: R2D2 - This IS the droid you're looking for...

Anyansayo 2 points 2 months ago

I was just there a couple of months ago. I bet that you will get good money for this.

Anyansayo 2 points 2 months ago

You are too modest about what you have done here. The paint job looks great and all of the modifications are better than anything that I have ever done. Absolutely nothing bad to say about this.

This is very over-the-top. Looks great.

Rkraus75's Completed Build: Man Cave - Complete

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

Okay.

Rkraus75's Completed Build: Man Cave - Complete

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

That makes sense. You do obviously know your stuff. But I did say in my original comment that if you can get a 1700X for a price that is about the same as the 1700, just go for it. I didn't actually realize the silicone composition that you mentioned was anything to look for. I personally prefer Intel CPUs, but since the release of Ryzen, I have started to like AMD a bit more. My current build actually has an old FX-4300 which I don't really like, but it is alright. I also didn't know about the "Golden" 1700s that you mentioned. But like I said, AMD will have to do a lot more than just one good CPU family release for me to change my mind on processor preferences.

Rkraus75's Completed Build: Man Cave - Complete

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

I don't know why that is the case for you, but there have been several comparison videos and articles. In one of the videos, they did a comparison of all three while running the same cooler, and in fact the 1700 was able to hit the same 4 GHz overclock on an air cooler as the more expensive R7 models. The performance at that frequency was exactly the same across all of them.

Although it is possible that what I have found to be untrue, and your information seems pretty rock solid, I still do believe that it is not really logical for any CPU with the exact same architecture, core count, thread count, and overclockabilty to be surpassed by something with the same specifications.

And why isn't a voltage higher than 1.325 acceptable for a 1700, but not for a 1700X? I am thinking that this voltage difference between your two overclocks may be the reason why you have been able to hit a higher speed with the R7 1700X than the 1700. Additionally, are you running the same parts along with both processors? If not, that is another probability to why a frequency higher than 3.7 wasn't reachable on the 1700.

Dugn8r's Completed Build: BadVolf WarWolf, version 1, Intel Build

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

Too OP.

Owl700's Completed Build: First PC build.

Anyansayo 2 points 2 months ago

It isn't really big. At least you can OC the 6600K which will make it more of a match. It won't really be that a massive change in performance, but you will lose a few frames when gaming. Just maybe try out the overclocking thing. That will probably fill most of the performance gap.

Dugn8r's Completed Build: BadVolf WarWolf, version 1, Intel Build

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

I believe that this blows about any other build on PCPP far, far away. I'm pretty much speechless.

Owl700's Completed Build: First PC build.

Anyansayo 0 points 2 months ago

Looks good, but why did you do an i5 6600K with the 1070. I think that if you are going to do something like that, a 7700K is probably the right choice.

inertiaselling's Completed Build: Metal tool case computer

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

I didn't mean to say "but" about the R5 and 1060. I meant to say that is a pretty good combination.

Sorry for not being clear.

Congratulations on the feature. It definitely deserves it.

Sumpadonk's Completed Build: The Shadow of 2010

Anyansayo 2 points 2 months ago

But was he using a G-sync monitor?

inertiaselling's Completed Build: Metal tool case computer

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

I have to say, this is a very cool concept. I assume that the airflow isn't really good, but it's got an R5 and 1060. What kind of things do you plan on running specifically.

Lager11B's Completed Build: Batgirl - Daddy-Daughter Build

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

I'm actually speechless. I wish that I started that early.

BoyScout's Completed Build: ASUS ROG ZENITH EXTREME X399 Build

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

Okay. That is just what I heard. I guess that most of it is just speculation though.

Blog Post "Fractal Design Meshify C Build"

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

I was saying that it is slightly obnoxious. I know that it fits and that it works. I personally have my mind set on AIO liquid cooling. Slimmer. More effective. Looks better.

kjutke's Completed Build: The Punisher

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

This looks really, really good. In fact, this is so good that I won't even say anything about the CPU, or how the motherboard is upside down which is driving the OCD side of me crazy. Too good. I can only dream about building something like this.

dsilverblade's Completed Build: £2000 Gaming Build, Ryzen 7, GTX 1080

Anyansayo 1 point 2 months ago

It looks very good. I always like the look of when people vertically mount the GPU. Although, I do think that you should have gone with the R7 1700 because it's performance is the exact same at the same frequency for less money. They are both overclockable so might as go for the cheaper one.

stupidasian94's Completed Build: PowerMac G5 with Ryzen!

Anyansayo 2 points 3 months ago

If it were me, I'd want it to be running on Windows 10. I don't like OSX.

stupidasian94's Completed Build: PowerMac G5 with Ryzen!

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

It's running on Windows though. Right? It looks good. The coloring on the case is pretty cool looking.

dreaded_pirate's Completed Build: The Milk Machine

Anyansayo 2 points 3 months ago

Okay, I do see a possibility of a feature, but I think that it will be more likely if you add in a longer description and more pictures. It looks good. Love that case.

BoyScout's Completed Build: ASUS ROG ZENITH EXTREME X399 Build

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

Is it just the CPU that has to be returned, or is it everything?

BoyScout's Completed Build: ASUS ROG ZENITH EXTREME X399 Build

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

I thought that it had been decided by intel that the next gen architecture will be called Ice Lake.

BoyScout's Completed Build: ASUS ROG ZENITH EXTREME X399 Build

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

Those 1080 Ti's take up like half of the space inside the case. this thing is amazing.

Blog Post "X399 Build - ASUS ROG ZENITH EXTREME / Threadripper 1950X "

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

This looks amazing. I'd like to see some benchmarks for this. That case looks really awesome.

Xyphobia's Completed Build: Definitely not a RGB build

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

Okay, I can see that. The Asus boards are good and That makes a lot more sense now that you said that you got the parts for a lowered price. The RGB looks great.

kahilm's Completed Build: 1080 ti / i5-7600k - 1440p 165hz - under 2k build

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

Looks pretty good. I like the specs of it except for the cooler because in my opinion, any 7700K deserves to be at least AIO. The price is especially impressive.

Xyphobia's Completed Build: Definitely not a RGB build

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

People like RGB because it makes the build look more interesting. Of course some may be more conservative in their usage of it while some may go all out like this. It really is all about aesthetics.

Xyphobia's Completed Build: Definitely not a RGB build

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

That is pretty intuitive that you changed the NZXT Kraken into a custom loop. It really is the best looking CPU cooler that is out there. I know that you said that you didn't need to overclock, but I think that at this price and with a custom loop, the 7700K is almost no question. But that is just my thought on that matter. I also think that a higher end motherboard would be better for the exact same reason.

On a different note, what kind of things do you run specifically? And how does it run them?

PTjutsu's Completed Build: Poseidon

Anyansayo 2 points 3 months ago

Wow, that will be pretty extravagant to add an extra radiator. I'd like to see the OC on that.

PTjutsu's Completed Build: Poseidon

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

Why don't you overclock it?

PTjutsu's Completed Build: Poseidon

Anyansayo 2 points 3 months ago

Looks good. The bends on the tubing look perfect. I know that you can't delid the regular Ryzen CPUs, but can you with the Threadripper? And if you can, did you?

Rkraus75's Completed Build: Man Cave - Complete

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

It isn't much more, but still, the capabilities are the same for less money if you get a 1700. I guess if you can get a really good deal on the 1700X, I guess you might as well go for it, but if it were me, I'd never get an 1800X.

Rkraus75's Completed Build: Man Cave - Complete

Anyansayo 3 points 3 months ago

I agree.

Rkraus75's Completed Build: Man Cave - Complete

Anyansayo 1 point 3 months ago

IF you plan on going AMD Ryzen, and you want it to be an eight core R7, you should NOT go for the X models because they have the exact same capability as a cheaper R7 1700. The only difference is the base clock speed.

As for the Intel side of things, I do think that it is "A Rip-off" to do an X-Series quad-core i7 on an X299 board because it's basically the same thing as the slightly cheaper 7700K but quite a bit cheaper than the X299 board if you go with a Z270. If it were me on this kind of budget, I'd go for the six-core i7 7800X because it isn't that much higher of a price, and I'd add a custom loop to at least the GPU.

But like everyone says, it is a good build. In fact, I wish that I had a build like this.
