Build guide recommendations megathread

Also I forgot to mention that the example builds with an Arctic Freezer 34 DUO do have coolers (even though pcpartpicker says they don't), so don't worry about that.

The problem is that the 34 DUO isn't listed on pcpartpicker as of now (16th February 2019).

note: the builds are made on their specific country, so don't try to just convert it to your own, they are "reference" for a reason. even with the Germany builds in other parts of Europe

 

In this guide we'll discuss updated builds at common pricepoints in common locations. parts have been picked according to pricing and focus sets of the target build. we dont care about company loyalty, and are here to offer the best experience for the money.

 

builds are gaming oriented, except if noted differently

Also I forgot to mention that the example builds with an Arctic Freezer 34 DUO do have coolers (even though pcpartpicker says they don't), so don't worry about that.

The problem is that the 34 DUO isn't listed on pcpartpicker as of now (16th February 2019).

While I agree that this will be useful overall, I see some flaws in the cooling section. Here are a few ones that come to mind:

  • Kraken X62 being T1 and HE-01 T3 while it is beaten by the NH-U14S, listed as a T4. (GN Comparison) (AnandTech)
  •  HE-01 being T2 while being beaten by NH-U12S being T5. (AnandTech)
  • BeQuiet DRP4 being T3 while equaling Noctua D15 T2
  • Respire T40 being T6 while it is beaten by Hyper 212 Evo T7 (TechPowerUp)

I'm sure there could be others; however, the differences between some of these coolers are negligible - often less than a couple degrees under synthetic test.

 

In addition:

  • this list doesn't seem to be noise-normalized, so it's only useful for those that don't care about how loud it is. (Many AIOs could place lower due to this)
  • Also lacks mention of costs (though this makes sense due to variations between regions).
  • The special titles for the tiers have little purpose - as they'll confuse the audience that is most likely to view this list.

Perhaps segmenting up the list depending on type (AIOs, towers, LP etc.) and listing prices may help. In quite a few cases, there's no definitive answer of saying which is better; for the applications vary.

 

Edit: Regarding the case list - while some cases obviously have advantages over others, a lot of it can be subjective. I think it's good you included the list; however, it seems a bit incomplete. I guess to make it less subjective, it'd be nice if some google sheet comparing features (ex. dimension limits of GPUs, CPU cooler height, HDD/SSD slots, etc) was included.

Then that's even more confusing; for then there are tons of AIS in the "King of Whoosh" section (around half of them) and quite a few 240/120 AIOs in the "Dual tower" section.

 

That's what makes me think they were put into ordered tiers.

Yeah I understand where you're coming from, I was a little confused the first time too. Maybe @LukeSavenije can make an edit and/or disclaimer about that to avoid further confusion.

Yeah - I'd have no clue where to start - there are so many cases and so much data on them. It's insane.

yep... we're thinking on monthly basis, but we chose to do a couple part lists to make sure people can select different parts. the mobo list is ours, the psu list is a modified version of the 3.0 with a tier addition, the coolers from the pinned thread in the air cooling section, and we'll add more in the future

Oh, when I look at the PSU List, I think I should make one myself. I don't like that one much...

Especially since it doesn't account for the price/segment of the unit.

A 50€ max Unit can't be as good as a 150€ unit because of the limit of the Budget...

 

Anyway: the Enermax Revolution SFX is the same as my Chieftec SFX thingy, just with Japanese caps instead of the "Default CWT Wonderbag" in the Chieftec. The Fan Controller is something I'm at a loss of words for. Only a Chinese would do that...

Fan starts stops every (other) second. And makes a noise as well. *ARGH*....

 

And the Form Factor should be Seperate anyway, as SFX can't be as good as ATX due to size restrictions.

And there are no really good TFX PSU...

Something I don't like about these lists is that there's just so many items that have to be ranked that there's no clear-cut definition of what item goes in this tier, what item goes in that tier, etc. (for example this item performs very well compared to another item, but that item performs well compared to a 3rd item in a review which performs well compared to the original unit) it just turns into a spiderweb. Imo the only purpose the lists serve is to see the rank of an obscure item, otherwise heavily simplified lists that avoid this huge spiderweb of tiers should be used instead.

 

This is especially true with coolers as there's a lot of factors that come into play when reviewing coolers (thermal paste application, ambient air temperature although this should be constant in a regulated room, uncertainty principle, sensor inaccuracy, acoustics meter because the slightest inaudible ripple in pressure near the meter could heavily affect the reading, installation, etc). Not considering margin of error like what was done in the list (why are there 9 tiers????) will only lead to confusion.

 

And I'm not even sure what defines a cooler being in "tier 3" or "tier 4" because the vague titles ("High-end 140mms"??? "Dual Towers"???) don't give anything away. If I pick a cooler from tier 5 and compare it with a cooler from tier 3, what performance / acoustics / temperature gain should I expect to realize on say, a 9600k overclocked to 5.2ghz with 1.4V? None of these questions can be answered satisfactorily with that tier list. 

 

Also with the PSU tier list, you have the Seasonic Focus/Focus+ which is on the same level as the Bitfenix Whisper M despite lacking 12V OCP and being loud, not to mention worse build quality. There is a big difference between Tier S and Tier A, somewhat small difference between Tier A and Tier B (hell, the EVGA G3 is technically better than the Focus/Focus+ despite its protections being set too high), a medium-big difference between Tier B and Tier C (if we're comparing stuff like the EVGA GQ with the Corsair CX 2017/CXM), and a HUGE difference between Tier C and Tier D (if we're comparing stuff like the CX/CXM black label with crap like the Seasonic S12II/M12II/Evo and Corsair CX/CXM green label). How would people know this just by looking at the tier list?

that cooler list needs some clarification, but it's source already was like this (pinned thread in the air cooling category), so we'll need some time for that. but for now, leave that in that thread

Also with the PSU tier list, you have the Seasonic Focus/Focus+ which is on the same level as the Bitfenix Whisper M despite lacking 12V OCP and being loud, not to mention worse build quality. There is a big difference between Tier S and Tier A, somewhat small difference between Tier A and Tier B (hell, the EVGA G3 is technically better than the Focus/Focus+ despite its protections being set too high), a medium-big difference between Tier B and Tier C (if we're comparing stuff like the EVGA GQ with the Corsair CX 2017/CXM), and a HUGE difference between Tier C and Tier D (if we're comparing stuff like the CX/CXM black label with crap like the Seasonic S12II/M12II/Evo and Corsair CX/CXM green label). How would people know this just by looking at the tier list?

tier s is the best of the best, tier a are the really good ones, tier b are runner ups and tier c are good PSUs. the tier d and e aren't meant for gaming, maybe a office pc and everything below that is crap in general. that should be clear. the source (psu tier list 3.0) also takes no noise, value or anything in account, pure build quality and that's a list that's wildly discussed, so if you want to, do it there.

parts have been picked according to pricing and focus sets of the target build

Some changes need to be made to this thread. The part lists that you made have no clear use (e.g. gaming, video editing, streaming, CAD, etc). This thread can be a lot more useful if you do as I say...

 

IMO, there should be different part list examples (at the various price points) for different uses. For example, there needs to be a list of example part lists for someone who's just video editing (at the various price points), same for CAD, same for gaming, etc. This would make the thread a lot more useful, and even though it might be hard to maintain, I'm willing to help update the part lists when necessary.

 

Thanks!

Thanks!

we're currently focussing on gaming oriented build, and other uses if noted differently

 

we're looking for more builds in the future, but that's not done yet

 

thanks for the suggestion!

Seriously awesome thread guys :)

 

I am going to pull the trigger on a system based on the £600 build (UK).

 

I already have a SSD/HDD, cpu cooler and an Asus GTX970OC Strix Gfx Card so intend to just directly swap in those parts with their counterparts.

 

Aside from thermal paste, are there any other extras I may need (for instance cables or extra case fans) that do not come included?

thermal paste does come included with the (pretty good) stock cooler of the 1600

 

all the cables needed come in the box too

 

the h15 does have only one fan, so you could look into getting another fan or 2 with it, or alternatively choose for something like the fractal design focus G

Thanks alot thats good to know :)

 

And yeah I am going with the focus g case as well I think as it seems to be highly rated and closer to the kind of look that I prefer (pending different colour fans and RGB lol)
