Being used for absolutely destroying every game I play. I will finally be able to NewGame+ the Witcher 3 in all its glory. Everything honestly worked perfectly fine in terms of installation. Feel free to ask me any questions about the build!

Any reason your CPU fan is plugged into the SYS_FAN header and not CPU_FAN?

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Ah thanks for letting me know :) I fixed it!

kschendel 1 Build 3 points 6 months ago

Very nice. Just curious, what is the actual power draw at the wall when it's busy?

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Thanks :) how do I go about measuring that?

You need something like a kill-a-watt

Nice build and I love your camera. What camera do you use?

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Thanks so much :) it’s actually my iPhone X that I used. Some of the pictures were taken portrait mode.

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks! I was actually thinking of getting some cable extensions. I will be doing a proper cleanup of the back panel and all the cable management soon :)

How is that memory treating you? Also, were you able to get any type of overclock/high turbo out of that video card, as I'm sure you know it is reverse binned.

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

RAM is treating me very well! I haven’t overclocked the card just yet. I am thinking of doing it soon though.

Very nice pc and what do you mean 'A 5 Year Upgrade in the Making' because im gonna get same as yours but 5-8600k just curious

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

I meant that my last build that I had 5 years ago was a “budget build”. Didn’t spend more than 600 on everything. This one I went all in and built what I wanted to get!

aud10_fr3ak 2 points 6 months ago

what monitor? nice build though! : )

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

So I have two monitors that I was using from before but I’m looking to get a 24inch, either 1080p/1440p and definitely at 244hz monitor. And thanks!

Does your build destroy basically any game right now?

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Yes absolutely! It’s amazing ahaha

Jasper11227 2 points 6 months ago

Sweet build! I also have the B450 Tomahawk. How long does POST take for you? (i.e. the time from power button to arsenal gaming logo) It takes about 15 sec for me. Im not sure whether that is normal or too long?

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Hey! It is pretty much instantaneous! Do you have an SSD?

Jasper11227 1 point 6 months ago

Yeah, I also have an MX500. What BIOS version are you on?

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

I think 2.8?

Jasper11227 1 point 6 months ago

I dont think that is one of the options :P https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B450-TOMAHAWK

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Ah sorry I read the wrong line, it is July 2nd 2018 version

FrogMan2018 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

This is awesome, very similar to the build I just finished over the weekend. It's such a powerful beast. I like that you didn't go full RGB disco lights.

Some coloured sleeved cables would look awesome on the VGA and Mobo cables :)

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Thats gonna be my next investment :D

Zucahro 2 points 3 months ago

Hey, sweet build bro.

Looking to run a very similar setup to this with the 1080 and 2600x, how is the motherboard working for you a couple of months down the line? I hear the VRM on these B450 MSI boards are among the best, wanted to see what your experience was if possible.

Have you overclocked at all?

Cheers!

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Working perfectly fine as far as I'm concerned :D Don't need to overclock the 2600x, it does it all for you!

McKazou 1 point 6 months ago

I'm going to build pretty mutch the same "type" of pc with the same price point. So i can only +1 this build ! I'm pretty mutch sure mine will be better because it has RGB :p

zanfai submitter 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Haha thanks! I personally opted out of RGB. As my computer is sitting on the desk next to me, I didn’t want to get blinded. However I did at least add an RGB strip :)

Logan_808 1 point 1 month ago

Hi im bought the same ram and cpu as u. When i was looking at wether not that specific team ram was compatible with the tomahawk b450, i didnt find it on the compatibility list. Howd the ram work out with the motherboard for u???

DaVinz 1 point 1 month ago

I really like this Build. Good work.
