If you got questions on why I picked certain parts on either build I'll be happy to answer.

Edit, my ITX motherboard arrived today and the case will be coming in soon. The motherboard is sooooo tiny.

Bruh, pictures please. Also, placeholder for when I post mine next week.
Finally got to build my own, so far every build was for a client or a friend
Granted I did build 2 AMD builds for myself both self destructed in my face.
Hoping it doesn't fail me now.

CPU: Ryzen 5 1600x
Motherboard: Gigabyte b350 itx board
CPU Cooler: Deepcool 120 ex captain white
Ram: 16gb Corsair Vengeance White LED 3000
Storage: Samsung EVO 500gb, adding a m.2. ssd once the heatsinks for it arrive
Case: Lian-Li Q10 (bigger and cheaper version of the Ncase M1)
PSU: Corsair SF600
GPU: Gtx 1070 Founders Edition
Peripherals: CM Masterkey Pro S, Bose QC35, Razer Naga Chroma.

Comments:
This motherboard made it hell for me since it doesn't play nice with this case. 24pin and the 8pin cpu cable in odd places.

I didn't do the research and paid the price by having horrible cable management.
Case also slashed my wrist up pretty good. Can't take the emo out of me I guess.

So when I have time to do so, going to purchase custom cables, and a different heatsink.

It's covered in dust, sitting on carpet, and i had to screw the 280nm aio into random holes in the mesh on the top of the case. I call it beauty and the beast. Performance is beautiful but it's one ugly rig.

I have a rather boring build honestly.

Fractal Design Node 202
Intel Ivybridge i5-3350p
and EVGA Nvidia GTX 660Ti SC.

I use a Sandisk 480 gb SSD (just a standard version from Best Buy).

It's the size of a Xbox One and handles WoW on average settings. I use 5 and get good results in raids, BG's, and quests.
I just ordered this last night!

That Ryzen 5 1600 is like a God damn sleeper for real. Best CPU released in the last 5 years, it's RETARDED that it competes with a 4 core 4 thread cpu. Step your game up Intel.
Just finished a new build for my wife:

(Well, -almost- finished. When my buddy gets back into town from being on the road, i need to take the acrylic window down to his shop to get laser etched, but the build is complete otherwise).

First set of pics were during/just after initial build when it still had her old GTX 970 in it. My 1080 FTW 3.0 came today so i swapped my "old" MSI GTX 1080 ARMOR OC into it, as originally planned.

Next, my current build, soon to be replaced (SoonTM; when Coffee Lake and the Phanteks Evolv Shift case i want to use are both released). Built into a Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX:

- note: the build above says its an SC2 Black Edition, because for whatever reason between yesterday and today PCPartpicker removed the FTW3 from the database. The card is (as pictured), the FTW3

Pics: https://photos.app.goo.gl/GzQ1virB6n3QJtML2

Pic of the new FTW3 and a pic comparing it to the MSI ARMOR card.

Last two pics are of it running/lit up but my phone camera does the lighting no justice - not that it's amazing (the two 140mm exhaust fans in the top are blue LED, and the 1080Ti FTW is lit up) - thats what the new build will be about.

That Ryzen 5 1600 is like a God damn sleeper for real. Best CPU released in the last 5 years, it's RETARDED that it competes with a 4 core 4 thread cpu. Step your game up Intel.


A 4-core, 8-thread CPU that beats it in gaming, and holds its own pretty well even in multi-threaded tasks because of the 25-30% performance edge it has in clock speed and IPC.

Im not sure what Intel has to "step up" to, really. And, uh, not sure what rock you've been hiding under for the last oh, eight months.. but Coffee Lake is going:

2c/4th - "Pentium" chips

4c/4th - i3 chips

6c/6th - i5 chips (OR 4c/8th - both have been seen with CL identifiers on benchmark sites)

6c/12th - i7 chips.

With an apparent 8-12% IPC gain clock for clock over Kaby Lake.

Intel will be fine.

Remember that in reality, 8c/16th Ryzen are actually competing with Intel's X299/HED platform, where theyre doing a far better job (just from a pure price/performance ratio).

X299 is an absolute MESS right now.
Well my Elite 130 PC case arrived and I decided to do a test fit with my TV stand. I thought I'd have 2-3mm of clearance from the top of the case to the shelf above it but apparently I didn't measure it correctly. I can fit about 4-5 sheets of paper in between because the gap is soo small so it barely just fits in that spot /phew.

I found another kit of ram that's 2x4gb 2400 that was only $4 more expensive (and actually in stock) and hopefully I will have it by the end of the week. If so I will do another build video on friday/saturday made up of that new HTPC system and until then I will try and figure out just how I want to manage the cable nightmare in that case.

I can't wait for zen 2. The biggest hold back iz clock speed no doubt. From my testing, even the slight ipc advantage kabylake had yielded minimum for increases but sacrificing smoothness with lower 1% and 0.1% lows. If AMD can get these chips to the upper 4s we will see some real competition soon!

Yeah I am holding off, scared of the high power draw and heat in the summer times for me would be an issue as I load the cpu to over 80% for hrs at a time.
