I7 with a 1060 though? Please tell me you do content creation, otherwise an i5 would have been sufficient. Otherwise, that I7 should last more than a couple years.
Can confirm. 1060 does great in 1080 at 60hz.
Performance should be pretty close.
Sometimes that error is listed for the removal of drive bays. If you put your drives on the lowest bays in the case you shouldn't have any issue removing them without removing your video card as well. But it's hard to tell with that case. I would look up a build log of someone building in the case for more info on the orientation.
There. I think this is better. Keeps your case and mobo, gets rid of the water cooling cause its expensive and it gets you a great power supply that's all white and reliable from a great brand.
Honestly I just picked the motherboard cause it was white, lol. Since your stuck on the case and mobo you could keep those. The case I chose because I lust over it so much.

PSU I listed will be MUCH better than yours. I7 will crush your rendering, 1070 will be great in VR.
Upon closer inspection I see its cxm, not just cx. Your right. And I agree on the ram. But idk if he plans on doing more demanding tasks in the future.
I don't think the 15% price difference would equate to 15% performance. I would look up some benchmarks and see if it's worth it to you. I can't say for certain but I would go 6400 and use that $30 on something else.
Ah. Thought it was just orange. Nifty.
You could probably get a better PSU. Evga has some pretty good choices in that range. If all you need is 950 graphics I would go with an rx460, it will perform better in newer titles as well as having more vram. You could also get an SSD that's around 240gb for much faster experience and all around snappiness in the OS, but you'll have to upgrade storage in the future. The ram is OK, but I would probably recommend 2x4gb sticks since the mobo you picked has 4 slots, unless you plan on having 32gb at the end of upgrading in the future
If you haven't bought the gpu yet, I think you can get one that has a white cooler on it that would match your theme better and make it pop a bit more.
Watercoolinf looks nice and has the potential for lower Temps, but at well over twice the price of the cryorig you picked, that cracked probably won't reach twice the cooling performance. It's looks vs price really.
Since you want it to last several years without an upgrade, go for the i5.
Couldn't say. Not to knowledgeable about motherboards. They seem similar enough and similar price as well. Personal preference perhaps.
Holy hell, neither one of us had ram in the part list. Man i feel dumb. lol
Didn't realize 960's came down so much since all the new GPU's launched. Makes it a prospect for a good budget card getting one used.
Edit: How about this. Theres a Microcenter near me so i can get a pretty good deal on the Mobo bundled with CPU. Used that extra savings towards more storage.
He has an 1TB external drive, and i have an internal 3.5" if he wants it. But yeah, storage is important.
If it's used it may not come with a cooler, so i included one of the cheaper generally pretty decent cooler as an option if needed.
I think the cooler will work with that RAM. 1) If the fan get's in the way, you can probably switch it to the other side into a "pull" orientation through the Cooler. 2) I think since your using 2 RAM slots instead of the 4 on the mobo, usually the spot closest to the mobo is left open, you should be good on clearance.
Some kind of variety. HTPC's. Home NAS builds. Workstations. Basic Office PCs even? Or maybe like a weekly/monthly featured build that's different than your everyday gaming pc build guide. Do you guys still do the live PC builds on twitch/youtube? (cant remember which one was used if it was a live stream)
If I remember correctly it did have standoffs in the ATX spots pre-installed.
+1 for Corsair and the green led lighted fans. - 1 for the milk crate pc stand. But man is that case bulky.
Guys its for ****...
Can't advertise that on this site. Fair warning.
I love the physical aspect and all the cool customizations people do with cases. One day I'll have a fancy looking beast pc.
I mean if I'm going to be upgrading with evga step up program then I see your point about the 950, it'll go towards the upgrade and I would get better performance right now.
Was thinking of getting a 750TI FTW edition from evga, but I don't want to waste the money and be stuck with that of they don't announce the 1060 soon here.
I was thinking of this but I need to get a little bit of change saved up. Vacation is soon, so after that I can maybe save up for a 480. Or a 1060 if it's anywhere close to the RX
Lol, that I do. Almost everyday I check the completed builds. Just makes me want to build more. XD.
Would be an option if I had a gpu. Overclocks seem to be fairly limited when I tried to flash an older bios on my i3.
I can stand by the hyper X. Bought one a few years back and it's still fast.
How's that wifi adaptor working for you?
That's the one. There's a lot of things you mentioned in that original post that you left out of the pc build page. Any further luck in trouble shooting?
Just out of curiosity can you link me to the post?
Yeah, just swapping won't be that easy since you only have ECC memory and idk what consumer boards support those cpu's you have. Worst case scenario you could grab the cheapest board that supports the rest of the hardware that you have there and see if that helps.
Ddr3 has Cas latencies around 10. DDR4 is around 15. That doesn't make it inefficient. It's different architecture. He also has a Samsung m.2 ssd running the OS. Even if it was on the mushkin its still an SSD, so it shouldn't be as slow as he's reporting unless it's a bad drive. Nor gonna argue with the rest though. It seems like he didn't NEED this server hardware and just wanted to experiment and there's nothing wrong with that if he's got the money.
If you haven't properly done troubleshooting I would do that. Take EVERYTHING out and boot the system with as little as you can. See if you can get the performance your looking for with one cpu, one stick of ram, one HDD installed (in your case the nvme ssd) and slowly add parts until you find out what's causing the performance issues.
I don't have any experience with server grade hardware so take my suggestion with a grain of salt. I hate to see someone spend this much money and not get the performance you expect for several months. My wallet cries for you, my friend.
I set up a custom fan curve in the bios so yeah it should be able to.
I bet if you route the 8 pins for the GPU to the upper gromit it would help with sag. Might look a bit ghetto, but it would help till he gets a gpu support.
But really. That's an awesome build. Confused about the snakeskin though.
Like the rest of the people say, common sense is best av. I like to have malwarebytes and a couple other programs for when I want to run a scan of check a file I just downloaded, but as for constant coverage I only use the built in av in Windows. No problem yet.
It will play any game very well in 1080 on high/maxed settings. First thing i would upgrade though is a 1TB HD.
The Motherboard was a hard choice though. If you get an OEM windows license you'll have to get a new license if you upgrade the board. Depending on how much you want to upgrade, it may be worth it to spend a little extra for a Z170 board to leave the option for overclocking in the future without spending several hundred extra dollars.
Alternatively, if you won't be upgrading anytime really soon, you could go with a 1TB HDD instead of the SSD. That would give you more time to save up.
All that performance and you only have a 1080 monitor. Tsk Tsk.
After a quick throw together i came up with this. Taking into account this doesn't have an OS yet, it will outperform the PC you linked in pretty much every game. If your gonna be doing any rendering or content creation then i would go with that i5. But the video card on that pre-built is out-classed by the one i linked. You could get rid of the Hard Drive and add the cost of an operating system and i would say you are better off. The pro's to building a system of your own is that you can have it custom tailored to yourself. If you don't want to go through all that though and just want to buy a system, then that system will be ok.
It's such a pretty build i must say. Only thing that would make it better would be a red/black MSI GTX1080. Get to it, MSI!!!
It's the best most state of the art operating system I could think of... Of course it's a joke. Lol. xD
On a side note i think Vista ruined my dad's faith in Windows OS upgrades. He won't upgrade to 10. I think it's fine.
What kind of Temps are you getting under full load in say, the witcher 3?
