Nice build you have here, but what's up with the 16GB RAM (and an i7)? Are you do more than gaming? 16GB and an i7 are far more overkill for gaming, but it's not bad to have it.

AMD GPUs aren't that bad. And, I've to agree with the user 'skemble', if you have poor airflow and insufficient cooling, it will 'cook' itself and die slowly (Either AMD or NVIDIA).

What's this build's purposes (Description)? It's optional but recommended for you to let PCPP community knew what will you do with this build. Also, provide more pictures, if you can.

Just a friendly advice, by the way :)

Good build. I like on how do you maintain the budget below 1K (well, almost). Not bad for a novice builder put this in one piece.

You should tidy up those cables, by the way - it can hurt your system because of lack of airflow. It's easy to do cable management, to be honest, but since you're a novice, try to watch some videos on YouTube for cable management guide or consult an expert.

Or: Route those cables into those holes and manage 'em behind your MoBo beside the system.

Hello. Great build you have here. But there's comments:

  • When he attempts to OC the CPU, other than just change the heatsink into an aftermarket, make sure he also change the PSU. Kingwin is a... slightly bad PSU when it comes to OC.

  • RAM. The A-Data XPG RAMs has its CAS Latency at 11, so your friend will have a slightly slow performance when CADing and rendering. RAMs with low CAS latency like the G.Skill Ripjaws and/or Corsair Dominator Platinum will make the rig perform slightly faster. The lower the CAS Latency, the faster your system can be. [This is optional, by the way, but since it comes to rendering and CADing, then your friend might need to change it.]

Another suggestion: You should install an SSD too, so that you can make your friend 'BOOMBASTIC'(if you know what I mean) xD

Other than that, well done on this build :)

Hi. This doesn't seem right. Why your rigs' parts are almost fully different than the listed here?

Love it, Philip. It works like a charm in my Nokia 5530 XpressMusic but only in Portrait mode. Great feature, this will be handy if someone want to discuss-and-decide the custom of their choice with someone they know but forgot to bring a laptop. Keep it up!

Nice decent build, though I admit to myself that I can't consider this as a budget (for me and other Malaysians), since I live in Malaysia, therefore $1K is like MYR 3.6K in my country.

Agree. It's very near w/ the dGPU. I'm kinda worried about what happen to the hot air that might be flow towards the dGPU.

Comment reply on p2bk_pc's Completed Build: An old case revived again..

  • 72 months ago
  • 6 points

First of all, I would like to say GJ on reusing your old case. But, there's critics (regarding some of your chosen parts):

  • APU + Dedicated GPU and RAM. You should go w/ the Athlon x4 760K instead the APU. This is because, with your system equipped with dedicated GPU, the APU iGPU is useless. Therefore, the RAM clock speed isn't useful anymore for the APU iGPU as it'll be disabled, since your system has a dGPU.

Suggestion:

    1. FX-6300+7770 GHz Ed.+ DDR3-1600 8GB RAM*
    1. Athlon X4 760K+7770 GHZ Ed.+ DDR3-1600 8GB RAM*
  • Thermal Compound. At least 4g is enough for you to apply to the processor.

  • The case. For somehow, I've been thinking that your cooler is very tall and big, therefore you might not/can't close the case. I agree with those guys that commented on here (this build), you should got a better case, instead of using your old case.

  • P.Supply. Be careful with usual PSU. They may damage your parts. Buy a new, good/decent PSU that has at least 80+ certification.

  • Cable management. Should look nicer with tidy cables.

  • Storage. It's that 120GB SSD really enough for you to keep all of your files?

Other than that, good choice. But, try to make more research before doing another build in the future, especially when it comes to use your old cases or not.

To all of you, please correct me in any section here if it's wrong. Thanks.

You build is amazing, except for your build's cable management. The holes that you see inside the case are for you to route the cables.

+1 from me.

It would be cool if the user needs an SSD as his 'stim pack'. Haha xD

Good choice of parts. The 780Ti is a great GPU in terms of its performance.

Good choice, but overkill for gaming. 8GB is enough for gaming. But it's better to have more than 8GB.

One Q: Are you doing more than gaming? I mean - are this build are only just for gaming?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "8gb vs 16gb"

  • 72 months ago
  • 1 point

16GB is not going to have improvement in performance, but have improvement in capacity for your temporary files (If you know what I mean). And I agree with all people who commented this; the RAM CC is overkill for gaming.

What makes a computer improves in performance is the RAM clock speed. The higher the clock speed, the higher your performance improvement.

It's not wrong and it's better to have such massive CC of RAM. But it's useless if your system did not use it all. Some people prefer more than 8GB of RAM because they need it for such heavy task such as video rendering, CAD-ing and other task that need to use a very huge of RAM capacity.

If I'm mistaken, correct it for me guys. I'll appreciate it

Not really (except UBuntu*), unless you're talking about the coming-soon SteamOS, then yes.

Windows making free OSes? For me, less than 20% likely will NOT happen.

* = I heard from my friends that UBuntu can be used as Windows replacement, but I'm unsure whether it's true.

The APU iGPU are highly depending on the RAMs clock speed. For an APU, you need a RAM that have a clock speed of at least 1866MHz. Your motherboard can support up to 2133MHz RAM.

Question: Are any other purpose(s) for your (this) build? [other than gaming obviously]

Great choices of components but no cable management?

Cable management is really important to your computer cause it helps your computer to 'breathe - inhale & exhale' smoothly.

Cable management only takes a couple of mins and what MrQnator007 said, the cable management takes at a maximum one hour.

I don't understand why do you overspent on such 64GBs of RAM and such insane capacity of storage when your cousin use it only to play WoW. I mean, are you/your cousin doing something extreme that you need such insane RAM and storage capacity like some CAD, designing or hosting a server - something like that?

There's nothing wrong with it, but the reason you got negative reviews is because of your description where you said "Built for my cousin to play his favorite game WoW."

I think you should add more info of your build purpose, if the build isn't just for WoW.

+1 for build, but -1 for description/build purpose.

No, it doesn't need dedicated (seperated) GPU. The APU itself can handle light gaming.

No offence but could you add more pics of your build? People will think that you're trolling, since you posted only one picture, and give you a thumbs-down.

I'll not give any thumbs-up or thumbs-down in this until more pictures have been uploaded.

Any plans for buying an SSD? (I saw your SSHD by the way.) If yes, I recommend Samsung SSDs, since OCZ has declared bankruptcy several days ago (OCZ SSDs is the best in terms of performance, but most of their SSDs are very expensive, which this might brought the company to bankruptcy).

And if you're getting the FX 9370 and 9590 CPUs, I highly not recommend air cooling for them, since both of the CPUs have a very high frequency and thus need liquid cooling to maintain the CPU's temperature. Thus, it's only compatible with selected AM3+ motherboards. I best recommend to stay with your choice (FX - 8350). But, if you really like performances, you may buy it :)

EDIT: Why did people really hate APUs so much...its performance isn't really that bad...

Thanks for telling me about OCZ's bankruptcy and the suggestions, will change the SSD and the thermal compound.

The 6 case fans is for cooling the hardware inside. I'm planning to bind it with the liquid CPU cooler, but since you said air cooling is suffice enough to cool the APU, I've decided to make it as the hardware cooling.

Nice build, though this is an APU - based built. I love how you managed to maintain your budget below $1.5k.
