    MattBoxer got a reaction from TVwazhere in Show off your latest purchase!   
    Got my first high refresh rate display today, an AOC Q27G2U I brought it back at the start of march but cause of le human malware it rocked up today. 75hz was good but 1440p at 144hz is smooth; I'm feeling the slight ipc and single core slow down of my ryzen 1700 as only some games can reach 144hz also maybe the maxing out of my 1070ti too :/.
     
    For being VA it's a pretty good monitor, there is ghosting but in games it's not that noticeable 👍
     
    Edit: also for being G-sync compatible, it works but flickers when menus dip down to low fps. Could be a driver problem though.

    For most real-world use it's not that big of a deal, but it's something to keep in mind when you look at rated speeds for a drive.

    Aye. If you think about it, selling something as "untested" when you know it's broken is the best way to get maximum return on your expenditure.

    At 25% or retail, I'm going to assume it doesn't work.
    Most damage, unless it's a fire, won't be seen by looking at the cooler shroud.

    UPDATE 2: I received the 1070ti today as apparently I got free next day delivery ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . 
     
    SO bye bye to the RX 480 and HELLO, MSI GTX 1070 Ti: 
     
    I also game the PC a good clean and found a standoff that a screw got stuck onto which meant I had to get a pair of pliers out and drive the screw out. 
     
     
     
     
     
     
    And the final product:

    Hello one and all,
     
    This is a build log of my new PC,  A E S T H E T I C A
    and I must say this is a huge upgrade from what I was running before Specs below:
     
    Sorry for the Low Quality images  they were sourced from Facebook Messenger and my Phone. 
     And anyway I started to get parts in this included a Phanteks P400s TG, Ryzen 7 1700, some sleeved extensions, an MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon and a ASUS RX 480. 
    However this was April of this year and DDR4 prices were ridiculously high and still are but I managed to score some new Corsair Vengance LPX 3000MHz ram for under £100 on Ebay and I also proceeded to buy a Cooler Master, Master Liquid 240 that was on sale too.  
     
    Also while I was waiting for the RAM to arrive i just couldn't keep my hands of touching the parts and I have to say this RX 480 is MASSIVE against my GTX 660.
     

    I have to say this is a FAT stack of components:

     
    Somehow I managed to delete most of the images I took after I built it but these are the ones I had left:

    Moving on to a few weeks ago, I brought an LG 29" 75Hz freesync dispay and a new 1080p monitor for VESA mounts and two Phanteks static pressure fans to replace the CM ones as they had circular frames and aren't that great for rads. 
    I also messed around to get some better cable management as well.

    Here is the rear side for cable management:

     
    And Finally my monitors / Setup:

     
     
    My next planned upgrade is a new PSU as this one is too loud for my liking with every fan running under 1000 RPM I can really tell that it is loud. And possibly a RX Vega mid range card whenever they come out. 
     
    Thanks for viewing and there shall be a few more updates coming soon!

    Well if you know your system will produce a large amount of noise, then I'd get the P400S. For me personally, I don't care about noise, so I'd get the P400. Pretty simple lol. I'm into sleeper PC's so I'm still rocking my Gateway DX4860 case and I notice no noise really.

    A week ago I ordered a Acrylic GPU support bracket off eBay a UK modder was selling for £12 as I wanted to fix the STRIX sag. Today they came (they were delayed as he ran out of custom bracket screw) and I have to say it was a great deal.
