Remember to reapply your thermal paste once in a while. You don't want to turn your PC into an oven, do you?
A pea sized concentration of the thermal paste is usually the best choice, then let the heatsink spread it.
Good choices are: Noctua NT-H1, Thermal Grizzy Kryonaut and Prolimatech PK-2/3 Nano.

Always state the purpose of your PC, your budget, AND YOUR COUNTRY if outside the USA.
If you are asking for improvements, clarify whether you want to lower price or to improve specs or build quality.

>Assemble your parts list with price comparisons by vendor and compatibility filter.

>Have a budget, but don't know where to start? This will recommend you a parts list based on price.

>General build advice including chipset compatibility, power supply advice, Windows activation information.

>Information about how to assemble a PC, how to select components, etc.

a couple questions
first, I've got a fury x coming in the mail after waiting weeks for my rma. Before this I had a 295x2, so pretty similar setup with a small difference. with the 295x2 I had 2 noctuas in the front pulling air in, then 2 gentle typhoons in push pull on the 295x2 rad, the 295x2 stock fan on the back as the exaust and my cryorig r1 for the cpu
now, i think im going to use the GT for intakes (r5 has a bit of limited airflow the SP takes a bit better advantage of), the stock fan on the fury x, and then a noctua for an exhaust with the cryorig still, in this kind of set up
is this the best way to go about this? i wish i could switch over to a aio on the cpu but i cant afford it right now
really just looking for silence at this point, performance is more than enough for 90% of everything i do

>> No.57984135

I don't see why you think moving the fan would make the fan quieter

>> No.57984324

Why would I need something faster than the 6700k? Seems like it would run hot in such a small case

>> No.57984347

Get a better cooler, hyper 212 evo (still cheap as fuck, but better than what you have) fits on my 6600k in my N200
I basically have what you have, you can step up to gsync 1440p 144hz if you like, the 1070 can do 1440p at ~90fps for new games on ultra settings, and at 1440p 144fps for old games or lower settings, it's expensive but the monitor will outlive your gpu
Don't pay for Windows, download the USB bootable media from Microsoft website and just don't activate Windows (until you find an OEM key for $20)

>> No.57984361

For $2600 you should be appalled that you're getting a 6700k
If you don't need a better CPU, your build can be remade for maybe $1300

>> No.57984386

thank you

>> No.57984435

Well with all those hard drives, maybe $1500-1600, you can still save by getting a WD blue instead of black, and digging around for better 850 evo deals (because I know they're out there), delete the 850 pro.
Don't pay for Windows and look for a cheaper case.
FOR SURE get a cheaper motherboard (you're getting Z170, probably a wifi/Bluetooth mPCIe card preinstalled, and a single PCIe x16 slot either way)
Get cheaper fans (if you even need them)
You can get a slightly cheaper psu, corsair is overpriced on PSUs

>> No.57984490

That case is atrocious and worse, its HUGE for an itx build. Whats the point of itx if it takes up that much space? I wouldn't worry about overheating components either, 90% of that case is wire mesh.

And considering the case has two 2.5" bays and two 3.5" bays, you could probably split that 4tb HDD into two cheap 2tb ones

Just get a single 1TB SSD... Maybe a Crucial MX300. Get an NCASE M1, it's much smaller, then swap out the GPU for a blower-style one.
Instead of wasting money on a WD Black drive, either upgrade to a 2TB SSD or buy a WD Red 8TB. WD Blacks are stupid and useless nowadays.

>> No.57984730

This is what I would get for that kind of money, personally
You can choose a CPU and motherboard that matches your budget though
Don't buy windows

>> No.57984881

Just go with the one you like the most, it matters very little.
Noctua makes great fans, but if you're autistic about muh aesthetic they likely won't match much of anything in your build, or maybe you want shitty LED memes.

In the end, it doesn't matter much to performance which fans you choose. But given that you have the choice, you obviously want a static pressure optimized fan for your radiator. That and noise are about all you really have to take into consideration, and the noise can be fan controlled away.

For the CPU it's a big possibility, maybe a locked CPU would be a good choice in those cases with so few cooling options, but the gpu side of those cases (fit with a 90° adapter) are generally seperated and have good ventilation

Typically it's best to use a single drive than two. NVMe, outside of bragging rights, has very little usefullness for daily use, with only a few niche workloads making use of it. SATA over m.2 drives tend to be expensive and a bit pointless, not to mention that they're often outside the Intell storage controller.

Not really a build question but I didn't see a more appropriate thread and didnt seem like a big thing to make a thread on.

I currently already have a decent rig but wanted to get a laptop because I am often away from home. I would like to be able to play at least some basic games to keep me occupied if it comes down to it. I'm in a hotel often but don't really want to make a mini itx build to carry around. So I can either buy a new "gaymen" laptop with a 1060 in it OR I can buy a Laptop with type-c thunderbolt and a good processor and use something like the Alienware AMP to put in my 390x.

Not pc building but a problem with hardware. I was "rebuilding" my pc because i was having some issues so i thought why not take everything apart,clean and put everything back together as anything else seemed to work, so when i was gonna get my cpu out (AMD FX 8320) i lifted up the little lever and instead of just getting the cpu out it also made a "clacking" sound. My CPU seemed fine,no bent pins, no broken pins or anything but now when i try to put it back on it looks like the cpu wont "seat" in properly and the little lever doesn't seem to work like it did before. Is it possible that i fucked up my mobo's socket?

What do /g/? I dont have another am3+ mobo to test if the cpu pins are really okay.

shit now that you mention it i do remember reading that the psu's fan is an intake
so the videocard will be fine if not even better without that extra fan down there then?
is flipping the psu again going to make a drastic impact on it?

is there any other places i should add the sixth fan to (another on the top, or partially overlapping a front one), or just keep it as a backup for when one of the stock fans breaks?

yes my psu is upside down, I have a cat, and tons of dust/hair in my house, so I flipped it because I was worried about clogging it on a semi-carpeted floor

Nobody is talking about permanently tying cables up but if you're too lazy to even route cables from the PSU through a grommet and then back closest to where they go, you'll probably be too lazy to do any cable management later.

It has feet, looks like it sits about an inch off of the ground, so not that great for venting out the bottom, which is why I worried about being able to use the bottom of it to vent

The problem with coiled cables is with heat dispersion. If cable A and cable B are both tangled looping around each other, heat can build easily between the areas where they touch and the flow of air through the case can't easily carry it away. (You're not going to get heating via fucking induction with some haphazardly looped cables inside a PC case though, fuck no.)

Invest in a bag of assorted cable ties (and a pair of scissors if you don't have any) they work fucking wonders for cable management and anyone who claims to have good cabling without even a couple of them is either a filthy liar or has spent extra on fancier solutions. Generally just try to keep shit in sensible places, check where things go when they're plugged in, where they're coming from, where they COULD go and find good paths for them. This is where the cable ties come in handy, nearly every cable will inevitably have slack even after it's plugged in, use the ties to sort that shit out and keep dangling lengths of cable neat against unused surfaces and away from fans. Try to 'batch' cables going the same place together as well, that will make them easier to manage and guide through the case.

Personally if I were you I'd see if I couldn't remove most of that drive cage at the bottom that your SSD sitting in, either through taking sections off (it looks like one of corsairs extendable drive cage things. I just totally removed the one in my air540) or just pulling it out wholesale and finding another solid place for the SSD. That'd straight away give you a bunch more space for cables to move at the bottom.

Firstly I thank and commend you for a reply that wasnt just an insult,

Yea i have a bunch of zipties that came with various parts, I was assuming looping the cables together was similar or close to the same as "batching" the cables up, Ive been waiting to do the cabeling properly after i decide on the internal setup, kinda a measure twice, cut once type of situation

the drive cage at the bottom can be moved all the way to the front of the case(the case comes with two drive cages, both are removable), I only moved it back so Id have a place to screw in that extra fan on the bottom, which I think Im going to take out anyways.
Im debating putting the fan expansion card right above the SSD inside of the cage , or would it make sense to store the ssd in one of the empty optical disk slotsup top, so theres nothing on the bottom of my pc besides the psu?

cool, my dog passed away a month or two ago but I bet theres still 80lbs or so of his hair in the house, So I was trying to be a little overzealous in my quest for a cleaner pc (without positive pressure)

but from the sounds of it I need to go back and reinstall my pcu now

The heatspreader is a flat heat pipe you dip, at least on all the newer CPUs, not old AMDs, it's point is to quickly grab the heat from the tiny die and spread it to the other side on a larger volume for the heatsink to cool.

It's an actual active component not just a slab, having not all of it covered actually lessers cooling performance.

So I got a new case and a H115i, this is the first time I've ever had a radiotor and the first time I've ever used fan control software. Currently I'm using corsair link but I have a feeling there's probably better alternatives with greater functionality? This link shit is annoying because if I set the fans on the H115i to actually respond to the CPU temp then the fans go apeshit for a few seconds every time I do anything, but with them set to monitor the H115i temps they're fine and it doesn't seem to effect my temps at all, but when searching around I saw some people saying that's not a good thing to do because then it isn't reponding the actual temps the CPU is reaching but rather the temp of the coolant in the rad system which will always be less than the CPU itself, causing potential cooling issues under high load.

The bending is a myth. Click bait tech site finds the largest, heaviest cooler on the market, installed it using a power drill, and then jostled the case around.

Sup /g/
I finally decided to get my self a new rig for entry level 3d modeling and occasional gaming. My budget is around $350. Would that be enough for a dicent Intel quadcore CPU, midrange motherboard, 8 gig of ram and ok-ish heatsink?
Any suggestions whitch CPU/motherboard/RAM should i pick?

New PC builder here.

I'm confounded about PSU cables. Are they universal?

My new build is an NCASE M1 with a Corsair SF450.

I'd like the shortest cables possible for the case, since the packaged ones are pretty long for the NCASE and I want less cable clutter.

I haven't been able to find these cables, perhaps because they don't exist.

6 pin male to SATA power female (every single one online is SATA power male; why!?)
8 pin PCI-E male to 4 pin male (CPU)
8 pin PCI-E male to 6 pin male (for the GPU)
And finally a male-to-male Motherboard cable

That's an M.2 slot, but since that's a Z97 board, it's a PCIe Gen 2.0 4x or SATA-bound. It will cause some higher end M.2 SSDs to throttle due to bandwidth limitations (they now run at PCIe Gen 3.0 4x, or over double the bandwidth)

Go for Arctic MX-4 ESPECIALLY for laptops.

>but since that's a Z97 board, it's a PCIe Gen 2.0 4x

I haven't kept up to date to Intel jewing their boards, but I thought they used PCIE v3 ever since Ivy Bridge (aka Z77)? My Z77X definitely can do v3.

>> No.57998350

It won't but the controllers inside the SSDs have been proven to throttle themselves if you reduce the number of lanes available to it. Most notably, all M.2 NVMe SSDs will see reduced random small file performance and increased latencies. I'm guessing that the PCIe 3.0 protocol slightly differs in their ability to manage larger number of calls through the interface or the Jewing is intense with this one.

>> No.57998393

Literary unoticable difference, just looked up benchmarks.

Also, SSD controllers throttle because of heat and not because the bus, please don't spread bullshit.

>> No.57998411

It's not, retard.

>> No.57998447

All Z97 (with the exception of three from ASRock, which I'll go into detail later) use PCIe lanes from the chipset for the M.2 slot. Z87/97 chipsets only have PCIe Gen 2.0 lanes, thus nearly all Z97 boards are limited to those speeds. As of Sunrise Point chipsets, those are now PCIe Gen 3.0 lanes, thus all Z170 boards will have M.2 speeds at the full specification.

ASRock did something different by putting a PCIe-to-M.2 controller on their Extreme6 and Extreme9 boards to divert x4 lanes of Gen 3.0 directly from the CPU (normally used for graphics card) for the M.2 slot. This is branded as the Ultra M.2 on ASRock's website. Unfortunately, since it takes away 4 lanes from the 16 available from the CPU, it will prevent SLI
configuration for most modern Nvidia cards.
It's not bullshit. Random performance does take a hit, peak sequential performance also takes a slight hit, and latency does increase. I've run my own tests with an XP941, SM951, 950 PRO, and an OCZ RD400 on both a Z97 motherboard and an add-in card. There is a difference for all of them, although it's not by much. Don't talk shit unless you've actually tested them yourself.
