Build Time: Firebreather


Best Answer Dasa, 08 March 2018 - 09:07 AM

for gaming 8600k will spank that cpu or go 8700k if you also want to do some rendering or something with video

more cores higher ipc and lower price

http://translate.goo...rt75579-27.html

 

Corsair H60 120mm Liquid

this would be hot and loud

a big hsf like nh-d15 would be much better

for aio to compete on a performance per db ratio you need to spend over $200

 

as for ram i would suggest this as 3600 15-15-15 is faster than 4000 19-23-23

https://www.newegg.c...N82E16820232306

 

or if you wanted to run dual rank ram and maybe a ram cache

this 3200c14 kit should oc fairly well if you spend some time giving it the love and vdimm it needs

https://www.newegg.c...N82E16820232378

 

as for the best tim to use ontop of the ihs

GELID Solutions GC-Extreme
or
Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut

and if you wish to delid the cpu for a 5GHz+ oc this is what you would use under the ihs

Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut

 

if budget is no problem go with a 1tb 960 evo or intel 760 or 2tb and get rid of the old spinner altogether

optane wont provide a noticeable benefit to these ssd so you can drop it

 

maybe look at a liquid cooled 1080ti

Gigabyte AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Waterforce Xtreme Edition <just make sure its the aio version unless you want to build a custom loop

 

oh and as you would need a z370 mb to go with those cpu

ASUS Z370 ROG Maximus X Apex $479 will probably get you the highest memory oc

but ASRock Z370-EXTREME4 is exceptional value

 

as for a monitor upgrade you may want to wait for these hdr10 panels

you can dial back the cost a fair bit without really losing any gaming performance

CPU: Intel Core i5 8600K $358
Mobo: ASRock Z370 Extreme 4 $219
RAM: 16GB (2x8GB) 3600c16 $345
SSD: Crucial MX500 1TB $355
GPU: 11GB Geforce GTX 1080 Ti $1249
PSU: Corsair RM650x Gold $155
Case: Fractal Design Define C $135
CPU HSF: Noctua NH-D15 $115
$2931

 

 

or if you want to cut back even harder
Gigabyte Z370XP-SLI $199
2x8g 3200c16 $259
Corsair TX650M $129
SilverStone KL07B $99
Noctua NH-U14S $89
$2737

 

you could probably save a bit more by buying a few small things from newegg like cpu\ssd\ram or waiting for one of those 20% of ebay sales

edit

what do you know there is one on now

Crucial MX500 Series 1TB $319.2

aiming for plus or minus a certain price point is something i really enjoy when building a new system.

 

problem is, i only pay attention to whats out there when i am in the market.  once i have what i want, suddenly i couldnt be less interested in the minutia of incremental tech developments. ive chosen well, so the topic is dead to me.

 

eventually, though, the process begins anew and i am faced with a daunting learning curve.  its never really that bad, because the basics never change.  BUT there is the initial tedium of sifting through the noise of marketing buzzwords and bullshit, parsing a bunch of new acronyms and inscrutable letter-number part designations, making sure i dont try to pair something to something else with the wrong number of pins or chipset etc, figuring out what is or isnt future proof.  ugh. 

 

but once that's all done, it becomes fun again. 


no pung intended

Many thanks, Dasa - again. :) That saves me some headaches.

Half same: I only ever follow this stuff when it comes time to replace things, but it never gets to be fun for me - just tedious.

OUTSTANDING*:
RAM
Monitor
OS

*These should not be outstanding items, but someone decide to be an asshat, and ~$2k is now tied up for a few days. Probably not a big deal, since some of those bits say they're could take upto 3 weeks (!) to arrive.

hope you don't mind a little noise under load being ether a blower or a mini model

you could tweak the power tune profile so it runs a bit slower and produces less heat\noise

if it really bothers you or you want to oc the gpu then you could probably do a diy install of a aio cooler

TBH, that really would not be hard. ;)  One of those nice 40+ days, a reasonably current game (even on minimums), and this lil' bugger sounds like it's prepping for takeoff.

That completes the parts list.  Now it's just waiting for couriers/post and then assembly.

Final component (RAM) arrived today.

That monitor, btw, is freakin' enormous. Maybe some folks have bigger, but as a desktop monitor, after 4 years with a 19" laptop screen... I have to turn my head to comfortably see the very edges of the thing. (Not a lot, but still)

Nup, waited for the past list to be complete. Build time w/ half decent cable dressing (the box has a window after all) + burn-in, should be in use in a couple days.

"Cable dressing" - PMSL.  With best intentions and plans there's almost always some hitch that comes up and blows your plan out of the water and leaves you with the unwanted pair of dog's balls.

I'm a r/cableporn addict, and enthusiastic novice. I've done enough of it to something always goes wrong, but also that you eventually get there.

Nice build man, look forward to pics!  

 

On the side note, we use velcro instead of zip ties... Hate zip ties and need to cut them so higher risk when updating. So much easier when replacing or running more cables later in the racks.  I use velcro on my builds now too. It's cheap, reusable, lots of color options and easy to work with...

Sorry for a bald like - never have got the hang of 'typing' on the 'phone.

 

Anyway... Yes, I agree about velcro - much quicker for stuff that may need reconfiguration, as a cabinet like that probably would.  As I said: not my work - but for something that clean, I'd overlook it. ;)

 

 

 

In other news: After a couple of fainting spells, I've decided to get a local shop to assemble it for me.  I'd much rather spend a little dosh than wreck a mobo or that monitor by falling on 'em, even if it does mean I don't get to do build pics.

 

I'll take a set of the finished product, though.

 

If folks are interested and would like to suggest some, I can run some free benchmarks on it once it's up and running.

And the boring desktop drone ones too - wPrime, SuperPi, yCruncher.

 

From memory, yCrucher - just get a single and multi-core score from benches 3, 4 and 5.  Omit 5 if you want, 3 should take seconds, 4 probably under a minute.
