Post your component list, rate other anons', ask questions in general.

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.

Hey /g/, got a question.

Is there a benefit to plugging in a case fan into both the mobo's sys_fan header and the PSU over just plugging it into the header?

Also, how does my first gaming build look so far? Pic related.

I still need to improve my cable management and get the 1060 and a few other things but it works and I'd say it's about 85-90% complete.

Let's see ...

A non-shitty 300 W power supply should be enough. If you want to have a safety margin get 400 W.

Looked smaller on the picture, but imho this isn't a good idea. you won't be able to put a good cooler on the i7 and the combo of i7 + shit cooler + reference design 1070 is going to cook for good.

It's not. It's spinning, so you're seeing through.

>> No.58169915

Well if I push all cores to the max, probably but I don't plan on doing that all the time.

I agree that the cooling for the CPU will be less than ideal but it's about as good as I can fit in that case. Also I'm probably going to use a MSI Gaming X 1070, which does fit, not a reference design.

While I'd generally agree, apparently the guy designing this has this shit figured out and has the airflow for the gpu and the cpu/mobo completely separated and apparently it results in pretty good temps

Work programs

Gaming doesn't mean much, unless the game takes advantage of the hyperthreading.

In some cases, it can hurt it.

>> No.58170588

Depends if your program of choice is a multithreaded monster that can take advantage of the extra threads. Generally games don't use more than 4 cores well, if even 4 cores at all, and don't benefit from hyperthreading. This could change with DX12 (a well multithreaded api) becoming bigger.
Most other high-demand programs are coded to use all the threads they can grab, so that's why the "i7 for productivity" meme is a thing
So yeah, you will see benefits, but it completely depends on the program, and games are usually not that kind of program

I built this mainly for gaming (at 1680x1050), but also for light photoshop.

I'm running a 1680x1050 monitor that I got off my sister for free (60Hz), and the 3GB card seems perfect for that resolution (the local store that I bought my GPU from weren't stocking any RX cards at the time and they discontinued the 900 series).

I got the CPU, RAM, Mobo and PSU from a friend for $400 (AUD). I saved about $20 on the case because it was an old display model.

I got a completely legit version of Windows 10 for free ( :^) ).

All-in-all I spent ~$1100 AUD on the system. The local store I go to is a little overpriced, but it was still a hell of a lot cheaper than shipping, even if I got standard delivery.

Headset is the Logitech G430, mouse is the Thermaltake black v2 and the keybaord is some old Acer boad with membrane switches (also got for free from my sis).

Anything that I should have done differently?

People usually compare the 480 to the 1060, the 1070 currently runs laps around the 480 but it also costs more. The 480 wont have problems playing anything in 1080p and you'll be able to pick up a monitor with freesync cheaper than you would for a 1060/1070 and a monitor with gsync.

Make sure you clock that 6600k to (at least) 4ghz so you dont get fps drops when you're getting 50man zerged in your stone hut on rust tho.

Would two 1070s in SLI be better for gaming than one 1080?

>> No.58173324

SLI 1070s is potentially faster, but games don't always support SLI properly. Because of that, in general you're better off going with a single more powerful car.

>> No.58173331

There are 6 to 8 adapters, you could buy one of those. But it's recommended that you buy a new power supply instead, 8-pin requires more power and your PSU might not be able to supply that much.

It's probably some kind of cheap AMD processor and a fire hazard PSU combination. At that price point you should be looking at used builds or walmart's bargain bin.

No. SLI never scales as well as you hope it does. A better card is almost always better than two cheaper ones.

You don't need 750W PSU for those parts. ~500W is more than enough. Also I'd go for a qt mATX case rather than full ATX, but that's just me.

My brother is in quite an interesting spot.

He has a some three-year old Dell prebuilt with some Intel i5 processor, 8GB DDR3, and stock everything. Back then, he got a GTX 650 ti and the power supply in this machine didn't have a 6-pin gpu power connector for it, so I helped him out and bought a "SATA power to 6-pin" adapter for it. I even spoke about this here on /g/ and you guys told me that the GTX 650 ti wouldn't run due. Well, low-and-behold, he used that video card for three years using that adapter and it has worked fine and still does.

He got a GTX 1060 for Christmas and can't use it at right this moment because the GTX 1060 requires an 8-pin connector and that old adapter is only a 6-pin. I went ahead and found an adapter that turns two SATA power cables into an 8-pin connector and ordered it off of amazon for $5. Do you see any reason why the 1060 won't work in the DELL this time with the new adapter?

I checked power consumption of the GTX 650 ti vs the GTX 1060 and 1060 uses slightly more

>GTX 650 ti 110w
>GTX 1060 120w

It's slightly more load on the psu. Do you think I'm pushing my luck here? Should I just tell him to buy a new power supply? What's the worst that could happen? Oh, I don't know how much of a difference this will make, but to free up the extra SATA power cable, I'm going to have to unplug the DVD-Rom drive, so that will be completely subtracted from the overall psu load.

500W PSU noted. The Phanteks Pro M ATX case says it supports GPU's of 300mm max, and the 1070 is 298mm. I thought this was pushing it and was expecting someone to suggest a different case; but am I right in saying the qt mATX is smaller than the "full" ATX?

The last time I built a pc for myself was 2011 (have built some for friends since then) so I'm a bit out of the loop with things like SSD's. Are they really necessary in terms of a substantial speed gain? Do they still have higher chances of failure or fragmentation (heard that years ago, not sure if true or still applicable). Also I would like 2tb of storage in the build, so if I were to get the original 2tb and a supplementary 250gb SSD (for the OS and stuff I guess?), would that be worth it for the extra money?

Are there any components I can get better/more appropriate versions of for the same price or cheaper?
Total right now is $1028

>> No.58174171

1070 requires 150w according to me nvidia. That CPU is around 100w too which means that 500w PSU will have another 250w for other components and overclocking. You do not need more that 500w for single graphics card builds. PC power usage is decreasing instead of increasing these days.

The form factor affects the number of pcie slots, nothing more. There are even mITX cases like phanteks enthoo evolv that fit a 318 mm graphics card. You probably never need all those pcie slots, so a shorter but still roomy matx/mitx is an option too. It's up to you, but I just prefer a smaller form factor.

>Are they really necessary in terms of a substantial speed gain?
Yes. SSD gives a massive improvement in load times. OS and all your programs start super quickly with them. It'll be the biggest improvement to general usage that you can get.

>Do they still have higher chances of failure or fragmentation
They have a maximum write cap, and once you reach that the memory cells start turning read only. But these days that requires 100-200 TB of writing, so it'll take a decade to reach even with active use.

>Also I would like 2tb of storage in the build, so if I were to get the original 2tb and a supplementary 250gb SSD (for the OS and stuff I guess?), would that be worth it for the extra money?

Yes, if you do need that much space. OS and software on SSD, files and other stuff on HDD. Or you could get 500gb ssd and add a 2-4 TB HDD later on if you don't think you need that much space right now.

Not really, as g-sync is essential just v-sync at all fps levels

Mini ITX gets hot, but nvidia 10-series gpus are pretty efficient too
It's your choice, usually the CPU gets a the meal limit before the GPU in those cases because ITX case manufacturers "fixed" the low airflow GPU placement without separating the GPU and mobo, and now have more heat getting dumped into the case
