Thanks man! That rage build of yours is a beast as well!
... a 9600k and a 2080, just for 1080p? RIP. Might wanna invest in a new monitor, IMO.
Looks good though mate, should be a safe bet for the future too!
this is amazing, i love it.
Always go ITX. Ive done 6 builds, with two being in mini itx enclosures and theyre by far my favorite rigs to work in. The challenge and the reward is so worth it, every time
I think you need a bigger monitor tbh
All aboard the Feature train... choo choo
i LOVE THOSE CABLES
Theres not nearly enough Raijintek love on this site, so +1 for Raijintek
I had a 240mm Deepcool captain in white for about a year and a half, cooling an overclocked intel 6600k, and it never let me down.
This is a fantastic first build! Mine was a 6600k and a 1050ti. Dont let anybody discourage you mate, we all gotta start somewhere, and this is a heck of a start
Love the TUF theme youve got going on! My only two critiques are the cable management (try some zip-ties to at least tidy the exposed wires up a bit) and the cpu cooler.
but either way, +1 for the theme, budget, and build quality in general!
2600 bottleneck for a 2060? What cereal box did you pull that idea out of? The 2600 and 2060 were practically made for eachother... and as for costs, the only wasted money I see here is the razor junk. Yeah, he coulda got cheaper ram, or a cheaper mobo, or cheaper fans, but maybe he likes the looks of those, and was okay with spending the extra coin for it to look the way he wanted.
Whats Ellen doing on that RedBull can?
Welcome back to the Desktop game. +1, nice rig
Invest in a second stick of ram. I promise you, you wont regret it. other than that, nice rig bud!
All this and an i7-6950x
Wow, the second Feature worthy Itx build today... This is BEAUTiFUL
In theory, yes. But even with the mesh underneath, its only half an inch off the ground (or desk. or shelf. or table. or... whatever its sitting on) and that doesnt leave a lot of room for airflow, especially if its running hot (ray tracing, anybody)
Typically the cables go behind the motherboard, but the parts list seems very decent!
This deserves a feature for that cable management alone. What are the temps like on that 2080 though? Ive gotta imagine she'd get pretty toasty under load?
Nice Build! I just hate how unnecessarily thicc the 1660's are
Thats a strange lookin lawnmower
Add some pictures of the entire outside of the rig, and I could see this getting featured. Beautiful build mate, I love seeing rigs like this, with real effort put in to them.
The ideas good, but id probably have lined the bottom with some acrylic so that the components were up off the fabric lining and held in place a little more secure.
Howd you find the temps are in this case, especially the CPU? I just bought the same case cpu, and I wanna know if I should invest in a better cooler.
Your gpu looks much better than mine will lol. Anyway, +1 for that cable management alone.
Well, Thats one way to add RGB...
Lowkey shoulda went with whatever made him happy.
First build? OOF
shes a thing of beauty. +1
That front panel looks like what my legs feel like when I spend too long on the toilet. I love it! Shes a beaut, bud!
+1, Banana for scale.
This build alone costs more than my mortgage for a year... OOF
It really isnt RGB... more just R, without the whole 'GB' bit
What are the temps like on... well, anything in there when its running and working?
...a 1080 for fortnite? Christ Almighty, thats just a waste. 1050ti's more than capable for 100+ frames...
Mags, get off the internet. Let the man be.
Dont listen to him OP, this rigs a beaut. +1 bud
+1 for the waifu mousepad
all this money and you couldnt invest 5 minutes into some simple cable management.
How was that case to build in? I have the sister case, the Raijintek Metis Plus, and i love mine. Im curious to see what others think of their Raijinteks.
128 gigs of ram, 2 1080ti's, a 2500 Cpu... Whats this used for?
First time ive heard of anything like this. Seems to run fine for me though anyway
Lol rookie mistake, you forgot to post your parts list.
... this is your first build? jesus. good luck mate.
only advice i could throw your way is to grab some CableMod custom cables for your rig. Im assuming youre gonna be showing it off, so you might as well make sure it looks pretty. Plus, youre already spending what, 3-4k on it, whats another 120 for some cables right?
I wouldnt worry too much about your ram speed, but you could always grab a 24 pin cable for your mobo power, or some extra fans for cooling and colour themes, or another 16gig kit of ram to fill out and pretty up the board a bit.
Personally id grab a good monitor. 27 inch, 144 hz freesync, But thats just me
I Shant make a list, but heres some guide lines for you! Light reading incoming...
One; the CPU. Honestly, right now, there are really only two options worth considering as far as im concerned. The AMD Ryzen 2 2200g and the 2400g. The integrated graphics are more than enough on the latter to rock most games on 720 and medium settings at 45 ish frames (basically console level capability)
Two; The Motherboard. Make sure you grab one that has enough room for any future upgrades, and has all the bells and whistles you need. Rgb headers, a handful of SATA ports, maybe an Nvme slot. For a budget build, Id probably shoot for a Micro Atx. Im not sure what prices are like in AUS, But here in CAD, i could get an asus TUF gaming for about 120. 4 ram slots, 2 pcie, plenty of Sata and rgb support.
Three; Storage. Nothing complicated here, I just thought id remind you of the superiority of SSD boot drives. If you can fit it on your budget, id definitely try and grab even just a 120 gig ssd for your os and boot programs. Trust me, its worth it.
Four; PSU. Make sure you grab something able to handle your future upgrades. Full or semi modular is always best, but it comes down to budget. That being said, Go on Newegg and Check the refurbished powersuppies. Every PSU ive ever used has been refurbished, so ive gotten them over 50% off.
If you end up going with the 2200g or 2400g, you wont need to buy a GPU right away. You can always grab one later if you see one come up for sale that you want, but the iGpu in the CPUs are better than most low end cards. Dont worry about a CPU cooler, as both the AMD cards come with a Wraith cooler, which is more than enough to cool it, especially if youre not overclocking. Dont be shy about spending a little extra on the case, Thats the part youre gonna see the most, so you might as well get one you like.
Good Luck brother!
Definitely. The ram was just able to fit, but i had to offset fan to clear it, and it might as well not even be rgb since i cant see it at all. The other issue was that theres less than 1mm between the top of it and the side panel of the case. I can fit 1 piece of paper between the window and it, but as soon as i try 2 pieces, it doesnt go lol.
My Only advice to you, is this: Check around your used classifieds, as well as Ebay to see if you can find a good cheap used 1080. with RTX being out now, lots of people are upgrading and trying to sell their old cards. Id also look into buying a third party cooler, maybe something noctua or BeQuiet, or a nice 240mm AIO, especially if youre gonna be making that CPU work. Other than that, It looks like youll have yourself quite the beast there.
