I love my WD Black. $70 for 1TB, though.
Speaking of hard drives, my SSD just died. It was abruptly sudden and gave zero warning. Even worse, I downloaded about 120GB of files in the last 2 days and never got a chance to back ANYTHING up before the failure happened... Kinda disappointed.
Blah bought a z170 board a couple months ago and now z270 comes out oh well. Will still be happy when it all comes together.
I meant to post this yesterday. BackBlaze revealed their list of reliability with hard drives as well as selling trends.
Spoiler: Average failure rates are getting better!
Ordered a Kraken x62, 16GB of 3200 dominator RAM, thermal grizzly paste, and a EVGA platinum 1000w PSU. All thats left is a 6700k from silicon lottery and a 1TB M2 drive.
I downgraded today so I could afford a new camera. Plus the 1080 was overkill for a single 1080p setup. Hoping the TI is out by Q3. That's when I plan on re-ascending.
Nice guys. I just installed my Kraken X61 a couple days ago.
CAM isn't too reliable. I wouldn't use it for anything other that monitoring and changing the LED.
Im not super interested about CAM just bought it since the x62 is supposed to be better than the 115i.

Double post since it's been awhille.
I just benchmarked using the heaven one and I scored a nice 3200 on 1080 @ ultra everything.
I'm pretty happy with my current build. It's my first one, by the way.
GPU: MSI RX480 8GB
CPU: Intel i5-6600k @ 4.2GHz OC
Motherboard: Asus z170-A
RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws V @ 2133MHz
Case: Enermax ECA3280A-BR
PSU: EVGA 550w Supernova 80+ Gold
Runs basically everything I play at max settings around 60-80 fps. Love the hardware.
This thread really died off. Does anyone have any new builds to share? Personally, I'm building a new system within the next month or so. Gonna pretty slick.
Planning on building this in a month or two to upgrade from my current Ryzen 1700 setup. I already have the GPU, PSU, and Monitor from the current setup that I will transfer over. The prices are not accurate at all though, as I got them for much cheaper.
Good choice on the CPU that's what I'm going with also.
Motherboard: MSI B450 Gaming Plus
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 with Noctua NH-U12S cooler
RAM: 32 (4x8) GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2666MHz
GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 Pulse, gives me almost 5 times as high FPS as my old RX 560.
Storage: Corsair Force MP510 480GB M.2 SSD
PSU: Corsair RM750x 750 watt
Case: Fractal Design Define R5 black with 2x140mm Noctua fans in the bottom, 2x120mm fans in the top and one 120mm fan in the rear.
Update: I have now replaced the old RX 560 GPU with a shiny new RX 5700 from Sapphire and it's definitely a huge upgrade. Had to install extra case fans to deal with the extra heat but I can live with that.
Same here. Im still running the system I built in 2015-2016, and updated in 18. Its aging, but it still does what I need it to:
MSI 990FX mobo
2x 4GB R9 290X
1x Samsung SATA 6 SSD (OS, CAD and a few games)
2x WD 1TB Blue HDDs in RAID 0
Case: BitFenix Aurora
Id like to revamp everything so I can start really getting into high-end visualization for my work, and personal use. Ive been tinkering here and there with Unreal, but my system isnt really suited for it. Ideally Id rebuild it to:
Ryzen 3000 series
M.2 SSD storage
same PSU and case
Ah, good old FX 8350, I had one a few years ago, it's inefficient but has pretty good performance. It could handle huge crafts in KSP with several huge mods installed, inlcuding the CPU killer KSP Interstellar.
My current PC has been in evolution since 2007 with the last major upgrade to the X99 chipset in mid-2016, so it was fairly high end back when it was fresh. The sentiment that X99 was basically a publicly-tested beta with regards to stability and compatibility is true, it has been a headache time and time again but when everything runs it does feel nice.

Secondary mobile gaming system I built in early 2017 mainly because I wanted to focus more on internal case customization while keeping a sleeper look...also cause I've been drooling over the GTX 690 ever since it came out in 2012, and didn't realize that it aged very poorly and was sub-$200.

This one doesn't have the best peripherals since it was mainly used as a Tekken 7 station. It actually performs about 80% as well as my other computer in Tekken 7/Monster Hunter Online/Titanfall, but the low VRAM available (2+2GB per GTX 690) prevents it from being used in anything over 1080p in my opinion.
Last 'PC' is a third-hand gaming computer I bought off of a friend to use for FreeNAS at home.

Welp, my 7 year old rig finally gave up the ghost. Had some screen flickers, two days later it completely dies. Powers up but blank screens. Think the card kicked it. Its so old its not worth just replacing a few parts, so I'll do a new rig to catch me up to this decade.
Previous PC was based around a MSI 970A-G43 mobo and MSI R9 270 card. It was low to mid range even when built so I'm excited to get something newer/faster.
I'm not sure if I want to hold out and wait for a 3060(more inline with my usage and pricepoint) or go overkill for a 2080 or 3070. Regardless I'll probably go with an Ryzen 3700 and X570-P, and limp along on my laptop since Black Friday is right around the corner. Any suggestions are welcome as I'm getting back into PC's after having completely ignored the industry for 4-5 years.
2080s are going for "hella" cheap (<$700) on eBay rn due to panic selling by owners realizing how jipped they're getting with the price point of the 3xxx cards. Still would advise holding out for a steady supply of the newer cards since you'd be getting more bang for your buck and it's right inline with the going price of the 2xxx cards.
