Sadly, my TGN medication failed, so I was writhing in agony until yesterday (when the new meds finally kicked in), and havent been able to build my new system.

I will post a review of how the build goes as soon as I am able; right now the case is sat on my dining room floor, looking gorgeous!!

I love my one, so much easier to assemble a system with these new cases than the old ones I insisted on reusing for too many years.

Not much different to my game max falcon case



The Game Max is a LOT of case for the money, and reviews give it good praise; but I have been bitten by "too good to be true" cases; my current Novatech case is a good example; the chassis, design and layout are excellent - but sadly they cut costs on the little important things like the ports and buttons.
I have only had this case 18 months, the power button broke after 6 months, the entire top port* section started acting up a few months ago, and now the reset button has started going the same way the power button did (sinking into the case).

My other PCs rely on nuke proof business class cases from the late 1990's but for my main rig, I need watercooling options that werent even thought of back then.

*My car will no longer play music from any usb device written using the top usb ports, but plays everything made using the direct mobo ports on the back; and the headphone socket is intermittent - something vital for late night gaming.

I'm looking for a powerful 8GB card that can handle extensive video editing, 4k/Luts etc It's safe to say my hardcore PC gaming days are behind me, but if tempted, I would still like to be able to run games at high settings. Can the 1070 handle my needs? Or is the 1080 Worth the extra £100?

Get Vega 56. Will still be as good as the 1070 for gaming but far far superior for the video editing side of things. Think people are forgetting about that side of things and focusing solely on gaming which is a shame.

Seems these Vega don't run hotter than Nvidia cards.

64 runs 1 degree more than 1080FE

Prices won't drop any time soon.
Take Vega coming out soon.
wccftech.com/amd…el/
These are estimated pricing for UK. Remember the Dollar price excludes VAT. Even so I would expect a 30% discount for pound vs Dollar. You will get none. £703 for a $499 card? AMD may suggest a price but the distributers are raising their margins big time here. See what prices we get in a few days.

The mining craze is set to go on for a while with many miners ramping up their operations. They can order 30 high end graphics cards in one batch. Thats just one individual. Ethereum prices is circa $300 now. It did dip to $150 but at these prices miners will be making good money.

NVIDa won't ramp production just before the release of Volta. AMD either with Vega out soon. It takes 2-3+ months for Nvida to request more volume from it's manufacturer. Probably same for AMD. They seem to be loving this boom in graphics card demand. The other reason they won't ramp is they fear miners will wholesale dump their cards should Ethereum prices crash.

That £240 card yesterday on here although voted cold sold out all 10 units within a few hours.

If mining prices crash then maybe this card could sell for £220-£240. Will Vega impact on it's pricing? Probably not if Vega is priced higher due to demand. Could be a long waiting game. £60 premium to pay here.

Trawling stocks and shares they use ethereum in graphics cards and due to short supply prices jumped another 11% last week.

Apparently AMD are flying graphics cards in by Boeing 747's to keep up with demand? I've seen it all now!!

I have to agree, not the time to buy a video card, need to wait until the mining craze move to the next thing.

I'm sure it wouldn't impact at all. But, it does hinder you having such a modern chipset without any modern features... I'd probably factor in a motherboard upgrade myself and that kinda takes away from this build. As i'd be better off going the Ryzen route then - however for those that want something that "just works" you could do a lot worse than this by far.

ritchiedrama26th May

Been great for me and others.



So you have had a AIO system from them leak and cause damage with them replacing the components that were damaged?
I have read some stuff about it before, the problem is when your system has components that are no longer on the market, they get devalued and your replacement amount (in USD) may not cover you buying the same as what has gone faulty. They do from what I have seen, make you whole again tho - so that's good.

I also want to point out that the review in the OP is not good at all.
An AIO or any Liquid Cooled system would need to run for more than 10 minutes for the radiator, fluid, and everything else to come to the max temp. Someone who has an AIO system probably see's this, the spike should not be fast, and once all load is removed then it shouldn't drop down to idle temp quickly either.
hardocp.com/art…ew/ should reflect more on how these systems work, he points out that there is a 30 minute wait before temps are taken. Personally I think 45-50 minutes would be better but I can understand why this is not really practical for testers.

I personally avoid liquid systems but these things do look great to me in terms of ease of install compared to non AIO water cooled systems and the price doesn't look bad for what you are getting .

It's not so much the jump in temps itself, but how it jumps. With an AIO … It's not so much the jump in temps itself, but how it jumps. With an AIO I'd expect an initial increase (smaller than you'd get in an air cooler) and then an increase over time until you reach a stability point somewhere between 30 and 60 mins after starting. That's what I've seen with other AIO's but not with the 240v.It jumps, more or less immediately, to the point at which it should stabilise much later. That's the sort of behaviour I'd expect from a copper air cooler not an liquid based AIO. To be fair the temps aren't bad, hovering around 70 with spikes to just under 80 running Aida 64's CPU stress test, but it's just odd behaviour.



The 7700K has spiking issues, they said it's fine themselves, even though imo it shouldn't happen. Huge thread about it on intel forums. Mine doesn't spike higher than 71 though.

My i7 7700k still jusmp/spike and sounds like that is normal. Arctic sent me out a am4 mounting bracket fot free, I just went to their site and completed a form in 5mins, thought best get it at the time as hadn't decided on ryzen or i7

Original Poster

Whilst I agree with some of the comments pointed out about boards being overly expensive due to the use of 'bling' on them, there is a great deal more in terms of value add to try and compete with each other. Look at the integration of much better sound chips, these come at a cost, along with up-gradable amplifier modules, things like 5Gbps networking IC's and then the there is the addition of Wi-FI and other such addons, again these all odd physical and licensing costs.

Yes, some of the board manufacturers are taking the pee slightly, but now that there is some competition between the two largest CPU manufacturers again, then there will be competition to price motherboards more aggressively.

With regards to reliability, I would be surprised if there was a much larger than normal failure rate out of the box than that of any previous generations released, and much of that would be early batch (beta) issues, or BIOS problems rather than complete duff boards.

You don't need a GPU at all, stick to your iGPU and save your money.


Most software primarily relies on CPU for rendering files, BUT a decent GPU is helpful for certain things in certain software. For example i upgraded my GPU so that i'd be able to get a decent fps playback in davinci resolve, and can now watch things colour graded on the fly ( i believe it stil uses the CPU rather than GPU when it comes to exporting?). Id do a little research into your chosen software ( for example i know that Lightworks has also been using GPU to help with any effects/colour corrections for the last few years).
