Usually brown Noctua is cause for a cringe from me... however, you pulled it off splendidly. Great job!
Absolutely beautiful build you got there.
Phenomenal story and build. What an inspiration.
"hang dong"... this just made my week and could have been the sole reason to read this thread. Thank you sir.
That is a lot of wattage. You planning to hit the 50 percent sweet spot here?
Everybody said it way before me but I will say it again. What a fantastically gorgeous build.
Yes it should be sitting on top of the Xbox because it absolutely annihilates it.
I think most people know this. The point of a budget is to do the most possible with the lowest cost, which I think the OP pulled off quite admirably. Upgrading to 4 cores of the current generation would have a signifigant impact on price. If there is no real bottleneck, then it is not a neccessary upgrade.
That's how you feel, other people feel different or just don't care that much. Why would they take away people's freedom on such a simple matter for just one persons opinion?
You should check the date on the build before making suggestions like this. He built this PC before those were even available.
Perhaps it was to illustrate that the pc is infact using one of the new Ryzen 5 cpu's and the poster was excited to showcase this specific part?
Well the wraith cooler definitely looks A LOT nicer than intel's crappy stock coolers.
Honestly, looking at reviews the 1050ti really isn't much more powerful than the 1050. I really would say you made the better choice for your price range. The true upgrade from the 1050 really is the 1060 6 gb, the 2 in between are just filler.
Love it. All of it.
Can we have more sexy pictures?
You realize that this was in CAD. There is a sizeable difference in currencies.
Love that little fan over the 960. I once jurry rigged a cpu fan i wasnt using onto my mobo with some zipties. It looked ridiculous so i removed ot before selling the pc lol.
The temps on your cpu are concerning. Also 8 GB of RAM is still acceptable these days. You could of put the extra money you spent on that towards improving another component. Also that case has a decent amount of room for cable management, so you may wish to tidy up that mess of cables.
Otherwise good build and im interested in how that cpu pairs with your gpu.
Outside seems like an odd place to keep your PC. Oh you did it for the lighting.
Wooo I was right
Must say... that reservoir looks sick with that green glow emitting from it. Too bad your custom window didnt work out for you.
I just checked and your motherboard only supports up to 2133 mhz on ram which may be another reason why you are having issues.
Well I meant you could get a faster clocked set of kingston sticks. Tweaking is the the fun part though ;)
I read somewhere that overclocking ram past its advertized clock speed can cause the cas latency to go up (this is the number of cycles the clock will run before responding to a call for memory) which may explain your experience with lag. I imagine you could find some kingston ram to fit the bill so you wouldn't need to "tweak" that heatsink lol.
While I havent built a pc with this particular processor. Ive heard from a lot of sources that since the APU relies on your system ram, not only do you need more (16gb gets thrown around a lot) but faster ram as well (2133 or 2400mhz, also with a lower cas latency maybe). Otherwise build looks great, aside from some minor concerns with the psu, and I am happy to see that someone is enjoying a build that I am interested in.
