Ok. I will consider doing that setup. thanks again!
Thanks for the replay. Do you think that cpu would be good for 4k gaming? I know the gpu would not be.
Evga sent me a bios chip. Going to try that next. If that doesn’t work then the Xeon is going back.
Well i installed the cpu and all I get is a red led next to the 24pin connecter and a white led down near the sata ports. Will not power on
Any ideas? Need reply ASAP!
Ok. Yea i really am hoping that a xeon v4 will work lol. I got this evga board brand new on craigslist for $50. And the xeon e5 2678w v4 ES was $200. If it doesn't work then im out $200.
Ok. The issue is that im buying ES xeons. So no box and they are usually from china. I got this xeon 2687w v4 for only $200 and it was in the usa luckily. I did find a V3 one but it was in china for about $165. Im really hoping i can get this one to work. Ill let you know what happens. Thanks for your help.
Ok thanks for the reply. If it doesn’t work with the current bios version is shipped with from the factory, I’ll have to get ahold of a cpu that will work so I can update it to the latest. Hopefully that will work or else I just waisted some money. Thanks!
In your 5.25” bays, the top one that has gauges, what is that? Looks pretty cool and interesting
Yea I’m not sure if I’ll find one cheaper. I would have to wait a bit for the prices to go down.
Yes exactly like that
Anyone have any ideas on the problem?
Looks like this
Nice Subaru Impreza wrx sti. I’m probably the only one who noticed that lol
Hey I’m running my 8350 with Titan x (pascal). I’ve thought about upgrading but my computer does everything I want it too. Ultra 4K is easily playable.
Nice build. Long live the fx!
Awesome. Glad to help
You need to make an account and have proof of purchase (a receipt). Then make a ticket. I ended up calling them too.
I got my receipt and I bought mine in July 2015. I contacted Corsair and they are going to send me a Corsair h100i v2 under warranty. All I have to do is pay to ship my broke cooler back.
Alright thank you. I’ll keep all these in mind
Weird.....My H100i gtx just failed about a week ago. Did you buy it around 2014?
At one point i had it at 4.9ghz but it wasn't very stable. I believe it was my power supply. My computer would lock up and not turn on. No overheating problems though.
When i tried it again about a week ago i was trying 4.4ghz (following a video from jayztwocents) Thats when i found out my cooler was shot.
I do. You can check out my build to see all of what i have.
I guess i might not be saved.
Ok. Would i be able to overclock pretty good with that? Like 4.7 or 4.8 ghz? I have an fx 8350 btw
Are you saying have i heard of Ryzen 2nd gen? Oh yes i have and i have thought about it. I just dont want to put a lot of money into my computer for some reason. Id rather put my money into cars.
Yea tried overclocking and the temp shot up to 80c.....then 90c and then shut down lol. Thats actually how i found out about the problem. If i play games its in the upper 50s and 60s. Every once in awhile it will go above 70c.
It’s an fx 8350
Nice build. I really want to make a sleeper build as well.
Is that a speaker on the motherboard?
Thank you for the info. These are the kind of reply’s I like.
Everything looked pretty good. All i did was switch some thing out for cheaper, but still quality parts to help save some money. Check it out! Any questions let me know!
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Your mother board should be compatible with anything 3200mhz and under. I believe they didn't list it because there would be a lot of others to list. The PCPP checker would have said something too if something wasn't right. The one thing is that if you ever want to upgrade to 1440p or 4k, you already have a system that can handle it.
I do recommend having the OS on an SSD. What else were you going to use it for? It really makes things more snappy. I did edit a few things. I added some cheaper RAM while keeping it almost the same speed (3000mhz) and same capacity. I picked a cheaper GTX 1080 that will perform the exact same. Are you planning to game in 1080p? The gtx 1080 might be a bit overkill for that. I also added a bigger hard drive since it was only $20 more. Other than that, rock solid build. Check it out!
I like what you did. I did tweak it a bit. There is a cheaper GTX 1060 6GB that will perform they exact same. Also, I looked for a cheaper 2.5" SSD and actually found a M.2 SSD with 10 extra GB for a few dollars less. Other than that, Id order it!
Only thing i would change is adding an SSD. You have two options on that. You can get ether an 2.5" SSD or a M.2 SSD I made a parts list with both. Check it out!
I really like M.2 SSDs because its connected directly to the board. Thats what makes there read and write speeds so fast. Every 2.5" SSD I've owned has never booted into an operating system as fast as a M.2 SSD. I here what your saying about no noticeable difference, and i agree. When your gaming or something, there is zero difference. Even booting and all that, you say there is no difference. I just like them because they are relatively cheap, and have fast read and write speed. They also don't require and wires or space. I don't want to make people spend more money on something then they should. I just think they are the "future". From now on ill ask the person if they want to have a 2.5" SSD or a M.2. I just like to take advantage on the slot if there motherboard supports it.
This came out to $135. I picked the Noctua because they are very high quality. You could get a corsair fan if you want. This CPU cooler is recommend by everyone and they say its better than the hyper 212. The PSU is the same one i have but a lower wattage. Very high quality and very reliable. Check it out!
Very good build. A few things to add. I like M.2 SSDs. They are very fast. A normal 2.5" SSD would also good but just my personal preference. Since you cant overclock your CPU, a water cooler isn't necessary. Your CPU actually comes with a stock cooler if you wanted to use that. This cooler i picked though is very good for everything. I picked some cheaper RAM. Same speed and capacity. Very solid build. Check it out!
This is a cheaper one that will perform the same. Ether one is a good choice.
For not building a computer in awhile, you sure did a good job. If you want to cut corners a little bit, i chose a cheaper motherboard. You can still overclock and all that. I really don't know what you aren't getting with the cheaper one other than the way it looks. Very solid build! Check it out!:
I added everything you wanted. I got you a nice 2TB hard drive. This case is very nice and has been proven to be good quality. I got you an M.2 SSD. It was only $3 more than a 240GB 2.5" SSD so i though that was a good deal. EVGA PSUs are extremely good. Check it out!:
Alright here is the new list. I kept the same CPU but gave you a much better cooler. I also changed out your 1050ti with another 1050ti but cheaper. it might look slower, but actually it is clocked slightly higher. Performance will basically be the same though. I switched out the RAM for some cheaper stuff but everything about it is the same. I also added some extra storage because I'm sure you will run out faster than you think. Anyway, check it out:
I actually deleted my comment, im editing your build again. hold on one sec
Ahh I forgot about the iGPU. Yes then a faster speed would make a bigger difference.
Lol i just realized that. He probably meant C7
I do know this, but would you really notice a huge difference? I suppose it matters what you are doing with your computer.
