My (very soon) Future RyZen Build

     Hello all, as some of you may of heard I am building a R7 flagship build to replace my AMD Power House. It will be my main computer for a while and this isn't something I get to do every day so I'm going to be using as many top shelf parts as possible. I am still debating what RAM I will be using and I have the motherboard down to two choices. Here is a list of stuff that has already been ordered or will be ordered as soon as its available.

 

CPU: RyZen R7 1800X Black Edition

 

GPU: AMD Vega or potentially one or two 390X or 490X depending on more release details

 

PSU: Right now I am looking to keep the Corsair RM1000 - This puppy has powered a 220 watt FX9370 and two Asus R9 290Xs through many heavy loads and shes still fairly young. I am sure she can handle the much lower requirements of today's CPU's and GPU's but Corsair was able to help me update her with some pretty sleeved cables

 

Motherboard: This is a tough one as I am debating over two X370 builds.

The MSI Titanium

Or the Asus Crosshair

Both motherboards are by trustworthy brands, awesome and featured pack and it may very well come down to release dates so right now its looking like the MSI board as they have already had public demos / test. If they are to be released around the same time then I will probably go with the Asus, The AMD Power House has been rocking the Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z for a long time and that beast has never given me any issues.

 

Cooling System: As of right now I will be keeping my H105 for the CPU. I have talked to Corsair and they will be making sure that fits and works fine for the new AM4 build, however I do plan on building a full custom liquid build solution once I know for sure what GPU I will be using.

 

Case: Corsair Graphite Series 760T Full Tower ATX

I was originally looking at the Corsair Crystal Series where the left, right, top and front were a solid piece of tempered glass but I was concern about size where it only fit some full ATX mobos where as this case will hold any thing you throw at it and I think she looks pretty sexy. Just imagine what she will look like when she has a bunch of sleeved red cables and pack full of red fans along with some hidden white led strips

 

Storage: okay this one is gonna be some crazy

Three 1 TB WD HDD in RAID 0 for mass storage / game installs

Three 1 TB WD HDD in RAID 0 for desktop / HD 60FPS game recording

One 128GB or 256GB PCI-e Storage for OS, Drivers and Programs

Now as far as what kind? for the the WD HDD I was gonna go with Black Edition but recent research showed the only advantage the Black drives had over the 7200 RPM Blue Drives is the warranty. The blue drives recently got an upgrade where they are using a single more dense platter where they could hold more info in a single inch of surface area and were actually achieving a higher read / write then the Black drives. The black drives (for now) are still using the older less dense platters. I am currently testing the triple RAID 0 WD Blue HDD setup in the AMD Power House and she is loading new AAA games in a heart beat as well as GTA-V and you all know what the loading in that game can be like. For the PCI-e storage I am still doing research but it wont have to be anything too crazy in space as it will only be holding the OS, drivers and regular programs.

 

RAM: honestly not 100% sure about this. I want at least 16GB in duel channel but what kind I am still doing research in. There is still a lot of info that is coming out but as of right now I am leaning towards something from Corsair and its going to be their higher end stuff.

 

I will be doing a video on this build as well as a time lapse (still love me some time lapse videos) I was wondering if I should live stream this as I know that has been a popular thing with new tech builds. but any way if any one has any idea or suggestions please let me know. I want this thing to scream and I can not wait to post this build in the Rig Showcase.

Thanks for reading and you time!
