Yeah, I'd have the bottom fan as intake, too. It would help better cool the furnace that is the 390X by drawing in cool air to blow upwards to the GPU, or so I imagine.

I'd get rid of the top intake and maybe the bottom exhaust, as intake it'll work better as mentioned above but the ones from the side panel should be enough

Start with the wattage necessary for your build, then get at least 80+ Bronze efficiency or better. Consider semi- or full modularity (being able to detach cables you don't use).

When you find something that looks promising, read reviews. Jonnyguru is good and thorough, and I think I've seen HardOCP recommended for PSU reviews too. Some good PSUs might not have a review on these sites, you're on your own for those.

the thing that sucks about waiting, is sure this "X" new product will come out in a few months, it will cost more and will only improve by 10% at best

or you could get this "Y" product now, its battle tested and will cost 80% of "X" without having to eternally wait, sure you sacrifice 10% of power but by avoiding being a first adopter you save significantly

nigger the GPU has an outlet. It sucks air inside the case to the outside of the case

No. You'll needlessly isolate parts of your motherboard/case.
> Should I ditch the fan there or swap it to exhaust?

>> No.66959463

No problem. It's a bit slower but it's hard to notice, if it's for a workstation you might notice the difference more than on loading times from games. The Strix X470-F is close to having the best VRMs on X470 (the Crosshair VII and Aorus Gaming 7 beat it) but it's $250 over there, the Prime X470-Pro or the Gaming Plus would be enough

Is delidding an i7 8700k necessary, or am I going to be fine as long as I don't OC it to 5GHz?

Also, what about the typical PSU? I've calculated that this setup gives me around 450W when nothing is OC'd, would you recommend a 600W PSU for OCing? I'm probably going to be aiming for at least 4.8GHz with my i7.

>> No.66959612

>or am I going to be fine as long as I don't OC it to 5GHz?
You'll probably be fine, but if you're not going to OC to 5ghz why not get the 2700x and save yourself $50+a platform that isn't dead? The *only* advantage intel is the fact that their CPUs OC very well. Otherwise AMD is more secure, cheaper and has more threads.

It's actually the optimal set up for cooling the GPU itself, but not keeping the case cool.

You're totally overthinking it, and I hope you didn't really buy that many case fans. How many fans do you have? Do you even have a fan controller for them? Are you using an air or liquid cooler on your CPU?

First consideration is you want all your fans working together to minimizes fan speeds and noise which means everything pointing in one direction ideally.

After that you want to minimize dust so have intakes on the bottom and exhaust on the top, and be sure all intakes have filters. A lot of people gripe about net pressure, in general you want a net zero or negative air pressure so dust is pushed out of cracks rather than sucked in, but it's not actually very important.

The changes I would make is have both top fans as exhaust. Bottom fan as intake. I would put side fans as exhaust so heat from the GPU is vented quickly and no dust is sucked in. Last I would have the CPU cooler fan in line with the front and rear fans.

I think that would minimizes fan speed, noise, and temps.

I guess it depends on whether you're going a 2600/X or 2700/X. If one of the former 6 cores, most of the average 4 phase X470 boards should be fine and if you keep air moving over the VRM area on the $80 Gigabyte, it should be fine. Although if I was running one of the latter 8 core CPUs I'd spend a bit more for the X470 Prime Pro, one of the best value 6 phase AM4 boards out there.

$90 for that MSI Gaming Plus/Pro is good. Get that if you're looking to save money.

MSI and ASRock B450 boards are fine from what I've seen, especially for a 6 core.
But for a 2700X, I'd get at least something as good as the MSI X470 Gaming Plus/Pro which has 4*2 phase VRMs and seems to work decently. Other options are like the ASUS Prime Pro and ASRock Master, for cheaper X470 boards for a 2700X.

You could technically run a 2700X on something like the ASRock B450 Pro4, or B450 Strix, maybe even the B450 Mortar, and technically turn on PBO, but you'd want to have good airflow over your VRMs and maybe replace the heatsink with some better ones if it sucks, etc. You'd need to actually monitor it and be sure.
Whereas with 4*2 phase or 6 phase for the vcore you can just forget about it in any situation.

1080p on high settings and 75fps is going to look better than 900p at highest settings and 60fps.

RX580 is a strong GPU for everything except the most unoptimized games like GR Wildlands, and even then it does fine if you just don't max settings.

Just OC your 980.

Because there's no more "low-hanging-fruit" to gain a lot of performance like that anymore.
Maxwell was a big jump because of its tiled rasterization and culling of polygons which aren't visible very quickly.
Pascal was then another big jump because it was going from 28nm or whatever to 16nm.

There is not much left for Nvidia to improve arch wise except to incorporate Async compute, and a shrink from 16nm to 12nm isn't enough alone to give such huge gains.

The only way the 1180 is going to be a big jump is if it's a 1080Ti die shrink. Then, with GDDR6 as well, sure you can expect like 15% increased performance above the 1080Ti.
But it's looking more likely, especially with the latest rumors which aren't anonymous Currytech sources, that the 1180/1085 is just going to be the 1080 die, or maybe 10% more cores, that's die shrunk. so you're talking 15-30% performance increase over the 1080, not ~50%.

You should instead be looking back at the small gains Nvidia had up until Fermi, then to Kepler. They are 15-25% gains each generation, not 45-60%.

I'll weigh in against the status quo itt and say if you've already got the hardware, you may as well build and enjoy it. Sure, hex and octa core CPUs that have become the mainstay in consumer socket flagships may have been a big jump, but an unlocked 4c8t CPU isn't going to be obsolete for some time to come. It is two generations old so therefore you're going to be selling to low ballers who'll probably want something for nothing, and in my opinion just ain't worth it. If you had a 6600 i5 or something I'd probably agree with the others, but a 6700k is still a solid chip.

Any of this resolutions shouldn't make any difference apart from maybe requiring a GPU upgrade. If anything the higher resolution you go, the less of a concern the CPU is.
That's true, but then anon is still stuck trying to sell a Z170 board aswell, then having to side grade to presumably an X470 or Z370 platform. Sure the multi threading advantages of stepping from a former flagship 8 thread i7 to even a midrange 2600 are obvious, but the 8 threads on anon's Skylake i7 aren't going to be limiting any time soon.

>> No.66963260

Do you already own the 1700? If not, I'd strongly recommend you spend a bit more to get the IPC advantage of a 2700 or even just 2600 Ryzen. Make saving on going 1070ti instead of 1080 and it should be a similar price.

If intel comes out with new CPUs before black friday, and nvidia comes out with new GPUs before black friday, and ram prices decrease by 20% before black friday, and you buy ALL your shit on black friday, AND you shop at microcenter (on black friday), they'll probably pay you about $580 to build a top end computer.

Scrap the 1700, get the ryzen 5 2600x instead. It'll be MUCH better for gaming purposes. The second gen ryzens are MUCH better for gaming as their single thread performance is immensely better. If you aren't doing video editing you probably don't need an 8 core model.

I'm not sure right now is the best time to buy a GPU. Maybe a used one on ebay, but not new. After august 30th the 1080 series will drop in price quite a bit.

I'm running a ryzen 7 2700x with a sapphire nitro+ vega 64. Only memory I could find that will clock up to 3200mhz/CL14 was the gskill flare-x kit. If I was to do it again I'd have probably got the ryzen 5 2600x as the 2700x seems like overkill for my needs.

Idiots. There's lots of them.
Though most of people who are idiots would want to buy one already put together, I guess. I guess build it but also say you have all the boxes to parts.

1.5v is the highest you want to go assuming you have good airflow. 1.4v otherwise.
You can do 1.85v or so if you're water cooling it or otherwise cooling it very well. But even keeping it cool, there is still a chance of possible degradation at that voltage afaik.

Why not go mATX? Cases tend to be cheaper and better quality for the money.

This build is perfect for me but I have no idea what monitor or graphics card to pair with it. The other day I visited Best Buy to look at monitors, and as I was playing with the 144hz screens it seemed like they were no different from the 1080p screen I already have. Now the 240hz monitor, that thing was in a whole other league. But I don't game enough to pay $550 for a 240hz monitor when most of my time is spent photo editing and research for work.

Either way, I would like an MSI card to match the red and black aesthetic.

>> No.66963695

Probably. I used fan splitters, which I hope isn't too stupid. Also, isn't positive pressure preferred for dust prevention? More air is forced in to the case so that air pushes out through the cracks. Then the only way in is through filtered intake fans.

>> No.66963703

Ok. It's not worth using on a mid or high end system.

>> No.66963747

Yes you want positive pressure, not just for dust control but also so that you know that your PC isn't exhausting hot air then sucking it right back in through a vent.

You have a lot better control over where your air comes from with positive pressure.

>> No.66963761


people also forget that with positive pressure there is a lot more mass inside the case to dissipate heat vs negative.

>> No.66963818

It is, but not in a way that pic's configured. Like the bottom exhaust pulling air away from components before it gets to them, or the two top fans recycling each other's air. You'd be better off simply having two intakes front and one exhaust rear, or two 140mm intakes front one 120 exhaust rear and one 120mm exhaust top rear, or three intakes front and bottom with the two previously mentioned exhausts.
Even with similar intake and exhaust count you can just run the intakes marginally faster then exhaust to get the positive pressure effect.

>> No.66963838

Or just do what I did and find a 200+cfm 120mm intake fan. Make sure your side panels are attached firmly before ramping up the speed.

>> No.66963847

A single Y spliter per pin source is fine.
And yes, positive pressure is desirable both to prevent dust from being sucked in through places where there are no dust filters, and because it gives more bite to the fans inside your case, and it gives more contact of VRMs to air to transfer heat to, etc.

The Alienware 240hz is okay.

But I don't understand your build. You should get cheapest Z370 board and 3200 RAM to get the most out of the 8700.
Otherwise, for that amount of money, you can get the same performance on a better platform for cheaper with a 2600X and B-die. If you want a 8700 to outperform a 2600X, you need fast RAM on it as well. Otherwise, you're just wasting money over blind fanboyism.
Why THAT tiny of a cooler? Instead of the L12, Cryorig C1, or something similar with a 120-140mm fan?
Why are you paying $84 for a 250Gb SSD? You look confused as fuck getting a MX500 250Gb for cheaper at one point, then also throwing in the overpriced one that's the same performance in there.

Yes, a 2600X with B-die is more capable than an 8700 non-k with 2666 RAM. Or at least it's nearly the same and any difference is placebo, while being cheaper and on an overall better platform and not on a dead socket. That is indeed what I posted.

Could be fine I guess, but does your case not have 4 fan pins total? One for CPU, and that leaves 3*2 for your 6 case fans.

Ultimately, your airflow is going to be more limited by your archiac case design than anything else.

And your idea of where to put fans is fine. I'm not super sure about the bottom outtake, but it's whatever.

>> No.66963988


After reading through this thread, it seems like you are a person who argues against anything that doesn't go hand in hand with your personal view, so I'll keep it brief. 8700 is a better CPU, I like the aesthetic of the NHL9x65 and it has screws for fans vs clips.

Just got done dicking around with shit. I reverted back to the stock settings (1.35V, 15-16-16-35 CAS timings) and bumped the timings down to 2666MHz. Memtest86 passed without issue, and everything seems stable (for now). Without changing the voltage or the timings, this seems like the best I'm going to get. I'm wondering if the RAM I got is a dud or not, although for all I know, the advertised speeds are for hardware three times what I paid. I have half a mind to call the manufacturer with the number on the back of my kit, since "the G.SKILL technical team is always ready to provide consumers with complete technical support," but I honestly don't know what I hope to achieve doing so, or if this even falls into the jurisdiction of shit they can help with.

GPU shouldn't completely block the fan pins. Wires are flexible, yes.

Yes, they are. SU650 isn't super fast, but its endurance is decent enough.
MX500 is about the same performance as an 860Evo but generally cheaper. Like the 1TB is only $180 or so at times, and 500Gb almost half that.
Then you have cache-less SSDs that are still fast and a little cheaper like WD Blue, SU900, Mushkin Source, etc.
