  • New upgrade for 2017

    right to start off my current pc is in my signature and i'm looking to do a all white build.

    so far i've currently got the following

    GTX1060 6gb graphics card (in white)

    looking at getting the following (with strong advise nagging by the admin cat)

    Fractal Design R5 in white with side panel window


    Corsair H110i

    1TB EVO M.2 for my steam games

    Intel 7700

    a 512GB NMNe for my OS

    Win 10 Home

    Looking at this for RAM

    Corsair Vengence in White

    and this as a Motherboard

    MSI Z270 Zpower Gaming TITANIUM

    Already have a NZXT 1000w PSU in white in my system already and some White Braded cables to use too. My other Drives will be used for storage only.

    and i already have a Razer DeathAdder Elite mouse and a Ornate keyboard.

    what do you all think ?

      Indeed. I have one.

      Two things to consider, though. It is an inch wider than some cases. If you want to get at any front drives, like CD players, you can't open the door if you put anything on the desk in front of it.

        i think you need to wait till next month for ryzen reasons.

        for pure gaming it looks like the 77k might still be the best option, but do you do more?

        for how long do you think 4 cores will cut it going forward? this is the real nagging question i have in my mind atm

          Also, why not the K chip if that is what you're considering?

            A non 'K' cpu with a H110i is a waste of money. You wouldn't need anything more than a 20 cooler if you are not going to be overclocking.

            The Intel 600p is pretty crappy for an NVMe SSD. Not really much better than a standard SATA SSD. If you are already getting the 960 EVO then I would just get something like the 850 EVO for the 2nd SSD.

            A 1000W psu is going to be pretty inefficient for a non 'k' i7 and GTX 1060. A 450W psu could run that.

            The MSI Titanium board is Silver not White.

              I nearly raised that one because it look like massive overkill.

              The "oomph", to use a technical term, that we need out of a PSU seems to be declining. I guess it is down to the increase in efficiency of memory and CPUs, not to mention the rise of the SSD.

              Five years ago a 450W PSU might have raised eyebrows. But not these days.

                +1 wait to see about Ryzen, even if it just makes intel prices cheaper.

                  i think it is going to make intel rush to hex cores on the mainstream.

                  the more i think about it, it is the most cost effective way for them to combat the new amd threat.

                  if they go back to doing multi chip set ups under the heatspreader to do all the functions they could pair 6 of their cores with amd igp and a boat load of cache for, not lots of money.

                  we know nothing beats real cores at the end of the day and if amd is doing 8, 6 and 4 all one one socket.....

                    i don't see the point in buying a new psu when i already have one. Over kill or not i'll save money by using what i already have.

                    As i said to the Admin Cat the whole M.2 hard drives area new concept to me as i still though SSD where the be all and end all for storage,

                    plus whats the time scale for ryzen ? im still rocking an ivy i7 but depending on time scale i'm collecting the parts each month do if there's time i can wait a few months.

                    other than that does everything else look alright, everyone seems to be focusing on the fact Ryzen is coming out and "OMG" a 1000W psu such over kill. i already have it and its going into my next build deal with it and move on.

                      Ryzen is meant to launch in a matter of weeks.

                      Don't worry about the comment about changing your PSU. It's more than fine to have an overpowered unit ... it doesn't harm anything, and your efficiency will be largely at its peek anyway due to the way the efficiency scale works.

                      M.2 is the next-gen form factor for SSDs. The latest tech involves a newly built/developed interface known as NVMe - it's built up for SSDs (AHCI is for HDD technology) and provides you with much faster access times, read/write speeds and I/O performance, as well as the ability to be used directly on the PCIe lanes of your motherboard. Have a read and Google something like 'NVMe vs AHCI' and you'll be enlightened.

                        The "entry level" m.2 drive is a lot faster than Sata.

                        The difference is noticeable in a big way. To quote just one review:

                        four times the speed of SATA

                        You see the difference at bootup. It also makes a big difference if you have one of those "index and search" programs to find stuff on your PC. That's where I notice the benefits.

                        "Storage" may be another matter. Like you I keep the operating system separate from the data. More for safety than speed. (It is easier to rebuild the operating system if you don't have to worry about important data on the same drive.) And given the amount of data I hold, I stick with conventional HDD for that. A 3TB SSD would break the bank.

                          I have a ssd already as my boot drive so I guess I can keep that for my OS
                          The evo would make a nice upgrade for my steam games

                          Is the motherboard ok ?

                            Nice build NC.


                            600p is lovely, as is Fractal case

                            Corsair H110 hmmmmmmmmm, i'd go BK009 air cooler, which will still allow OC if desired, but none of that pump noise, or exterior air flow noise with it sitting on edge of case, with saving i'd spend on K cpu.

                            m.2 sammy evo much improvement on your old list with pro 2.5" traditional SSDs.

                            I'd go 7700k, not much more and faster stock, faster turbo. 3.6 /4 .2 VS 4.2 / 4.5 so no brainer.

                            You could change the old LPX memory sku, to the newer white LED sku.

                              Hold on a second, white Z270 Xpower board 325 ish???

                              White board isn't worth 182

                              Get this instead

                              https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Comp...roductId=67015


                              I can't see any difference. Apart from loss of white.
