Yea, I thought about just getting a webcam and having a link on her webpage or Facebook page to link to the login screen of the webcam, but most likely that would only work for a Mac or PC, most webcams require an app to be installed for phones. Do you know of any webcams that will work on iOS or android that don't require an app to be installed?

She just wants anybody who comes across her website and/or her Facebook page to be able to view the live stream and to check out the cats. This isn't a security camera, this is to help stir interest in the coffee shop.

Nice high end specs; however....

  1. It seems like you would have picked a better CPU cooler with all the other high end parts you selected.

  2. Nvidia is about to release their new video cards, so instead of investing in a GTX 1080 ti now, I would wait to see what the new cards can do.

Is this the "incompatibility" comment that you are referring too:

The motherboard M.2 slot #2 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled.

It does not mean that the 960 EVO is not compatible with the motherboard, it is just tell you that one of your SATA ports is affected if you use the M.2 slot.

You could build a mini-ITX for basically the same price as your build that you linked too. All you would have to do is replace the motherboard and the case. It basically comes down to the case and how small you want to go. Some mini-ITX cases require a SFX PSU which can cost more. And the GPU usually have to be small enough to fit in the case, but they don't typically cost more. Also, with mini-ITX you are usually limited with the CPU cooler, but some mini-ITX cases can take decent sized CPU coolers.

Your build is shown in the completed build section. It is currently on page 11 of the completed builds. Strange that you don't have one comment. Most likely there was some kind of issue and when it finally was posted to the completed builds section it was already too far back that nobody looked at it.

I think your only option is to see if you can re-post.

Oh, so the store you bought it at updated the bios before shipping. What store did you buy the motherboard at? I was thinking about doing a cheap 2200G build, but knew that the bios may be a problem.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What do you duders think?"

Well, all and all not bad, but I would definitely switch out the i5-7500 for an i3-8100 or i3-8350K. You would still have 4 cores, but the two i3's are clocked higher and are a generation newer chip. Or get an i5-8600K or i5-8400 chip. You would need to switch out the motherboard as well to one that can support the newer CPUs.

Also, you posted in the wrong section, should be in the "Parts List Opinions Wanted" section.

I understand the concept, but don't you need filters in front of the intake fans to make this work. By creating positive pressure, air can only come in where you want it to come in, air can't come into the case along a seam, but will only come in at the intake fan. But unless you have a filter on the fan, the whole concept is moot isn't it?

Also, this is not a big deal, but I believe the X299 motherboard will support quad channel memory, but with only 2 sticks of RAM you will have only dual channel. Probably very little difference in real life day to day work/play.

Well, to get good play out of a 4K monitor, you would probably need a 1080 or 1080ti. Also, you could possible step down to an i7-8700K and then get a cheaper motherboard that is compatible with the i7-8700K and put the money saved into the video card.

As far as SSD, they are much much faster than an standard HDD (and your HDD drive that you picked is even a slow one at 5400RPM). Most people get a 120GB or 256GB SSD or M.2 drive to put the operating system on and maybe a few games, then you can have another HDD for more storage. Having an SSD or M.2 drive will allow you computer to boot up in about 10 seconds.

Well, I'm no expert on PCPP, but the one thing that stands out is the GPU. I think you are going to need a much higher end GPU to play games on that 4K monitor. And why didn't you add a SSD or M.2 drive?

Also, you posted this in the wrong topic, should be under "Part List Opinions Wanted" section.

Although once considered completely devoid of complications, it is now recognised that the misuse or inappropriate use of nitrous oxide (N2O) often results in adverse side effects.

I agree that the "misuse" and "inappropriate use" of nitrous oxide can be very dangerous.

Ask for the nitrous oxide, so even if the anesthetic doesn't work too good, you have a 2nd drug that will help numb the pain.

Well, in a certain way, there is already a "maximum" salary for football players in the NFL. It's called the salary cap. The salary cap is for the whole team, not individual players. I do agree with the "salary cap" otherwise the riches owners would have all the best players.

If you are playing 1080 at 60Hz you probably won't notice any difference between DVI and HDMI. The newest versions of HDMI are better than DVI. HDMI can also carry audio if you need that. But don't use VGA if you don't have too.

Yea, if both your PSU and back fans are exhaust then you probably do need two intake fans up top. In my build I switched the back fan to be intake instead of exhaust.

Very nice. Very similar to one of my builds (but I didn't do any mods to the case). You do know that they make the exact same case with a fan on top? See link. Could have saved you some hassle, but your mod looks as good if not better then the factory case with the fan on top.

Jacksonville got tropical storm force winds with gusts in category 1. We also got some kind of "perfect storm" conditions regarding the storm surge, so even thought we only got hit with tropical storm force winds we got category 3 storm surge. My house is fine, no damage as far as I can see. Lots of debris in my yard. I lost power about 2:00 am Monday and the power was just restored about 7:00 pm on Tuesday. There was a point where the retention pond behind my house started to rise and the storm sewers on the street were over flowing and I thought that I could possible get some flooding, but the water receded and everything is fine now.

Yes, it does not look good for Tampa Bay. So I take it that you didn't evacuate? Are you just hunkering down at your house? I hope you aren't where the storm surge will come in. Stay safe.

Only some welding glasses are okay, most are not.

Viewing with Protection -- Experts suggests that one widely available filter for safe solar viewing is welders glass of sufficiently high number. The only ones that are safe for direct viewing of the Sun with your eyes are those of Shade 12 or higher. These are much darker than the filters used for most kinds of welding. If you have an old welder's helmet around the house and are thinking of using it to view the Sun, make sure you know the filter's shade number. If it's less than 12 (and it probably is), don't even think about using it to look at the Sun. Many people find the Sun too bright even in a Shade 12 filter, and some find the Sun too dim in a Shade 14 filter — but Shade 13 filters are uncommon and can be hard to find. The AAS Reputable Vendors of Solar Filters & Viewers page (link is external) doesn't list any suppliers of welder's filters, only suppliers of special-purpose filters made for viewing the Sun.To find out more about eyewear and handheld viewers go to https://eclipse.aas.org/eye-safety/eyewear-viewers (link is external).

As far as power supplies go, this would be a much better power supply.

PCPARTPICKER is stating that the that the h100i is not compatible with the Corsair SPEC 3 case for some reason. You would need to double check the specification for the case to see if it can handle the radiators for that CPU cooler or check some of the builds on this site who used that case and see if any of them used that cooler. You can sort by case and the again by CPU cooler. There are a few that use the same case and h100i but not many. Not sure if the radiator blocks anything. You might be better off just picking a different case.

FYI, when you are on your build page, click "Browse by Individual Parts" and then "CPU Cooler" and then you uncheck the box towards the top left that states "Enable compatibility filter" then the h100i will show up, but then if you add it to your build that is when it states that it is not compatible with the case.

Yea, you posted in the wrong section. You should have posted in the "Part List Opinions Wanted" section. Actually building your own computer is not really "waaaay" cheaper, but can be "waaaay" better.

Regarding your build, I would switch out the i7-6700K for the i7-7700K and switch the motherboard for a Z270 motherboard. Also, swap out the power supply with something a little better.

As far as the video card is concerned, it is not the most powerful. I'm not a gamer so just check some reviews of it to see if it will play your games with decent frame rates.

Your build looks pretty solid. The PSU might be a little overkill but whatever. If this was my build I would just change two things: 1) I would put in an SSD for the operating system and a few programs in addition to the HDD and 2) change the PSU from the "G2" version to the "G3" version.
