    Assuming you go 4K. You could easily drop the cpu down to one of the 6 core variants to save a bit more money.

    Why don't you suggest CXM psu's ? They are perfectly fine especially for a lower end build.
  3. New Build

    How am I bragging exactly ? Also if the guy is on a strict budget, then maybe don't suggest a more expensive psu.
  4. New Build

    Read the summary......OPP is set sky high.
  5. New Build

    Need to check my eyes Seriously though you should check for cpu throttling as that board and an overclocked 8 core isn't a good match. You could do it a big favour by cable tying a fan over the vrm area. That would help if the temps were getting too high.
  6. New Build

    What issues does the Seasonic have ? Also 100% efficiency is impossible for a psu.
  7. New Build

    Stock or overclocked ? Love to see your VRM temps. They must be through the roof.
  8. New Build

    Of course there is reason to go ATX. For starters it gives you a lot more choice on board/case. You also have more room on the board to work with instead of being cramped on a smaller board. A lot of coolers can also foul the top pcie slot on matx. Case is personal pref. You might like it, I don't. Also I didn't say anything about airflow ? Maybe you should do more research on the G3 then. It has protection issues. So the only flaws are with the psu.
  9. New Build

    No reason to go with a micro ATX build though if the op wants ATX. And that case looks ugly imo but of course everyone has different tastes. Not sure why you changed the psu either as it is more expensive than the Seasonic Focus.

    You should go and watch Buildzoid on Youtube as he goes into detail about vrm's on B350 and B450. The Gigabyte B350 boards are all basically pretty terrible. As for the Tomahawk it is by no means perfect, but I would rather have it over the Gigabyte.
  11. New Build

    Nothing to do with gaming or being able to expand. The Gigabyte VRM heatsink looks pretty crappy. The MSI board is far better in that respect. If the op ever decides he wants an 8 core cpu then that Gigabyte will more than likely thermal throttle.
  12. New RIG Appraisal - What do you Think?

    Depends on the price. Just because it is a faster kit doesn't always mean it is more expensive. For example Overclockers in the UK had a 4000MHz kit on sale a few months back that was cheaper than any of the 3000MHz kits.
  13. New Build

    The Tomahawk board he has is much better. Also mATX looks a bit small in an ATX case.
  14. New RIG Appraisal - What do you Think?

    Not a huge issue but you could look for a 3000 - 3200 kit of ram depending on the price difference.
