The setup is working great now, everything so far runs like a dream :D
That's great!

Minor critique on the build:

- 850 watt unit is way overkill. Even PCs that use SLI don't come near using that much. 550 watts is more than enough. But the Corsair RMx power supply is very solid. Excellent ripple, great voltage regulations and properly configured protections.

That's it, honestly. Very solid build! Hope it serves you well.

I was thinking on 1000W Psu first, but decided that was way too overkill x)

reason i bought a new one is because I have bad expereince with the corsair 500w PSUs, they have betrayed me more than once, now I got a 750 in my old rig, and I thought I might aswell buy a new one with some more W, incase I ever need it.

But that's good advice, In the future i don't need to spend as much on PSU's and maybe invest in some 3200 ram instead of 2666 like i got now.

Thanks :3

Well, PSUs are very important.

The last Corsair PSU you had was actually probably one of their bad models.

The Corsair RMx, RMi, HXi, HX, TXM, and CX(M) (Grey label) models are great. Their older VS, CX, and CSM... not so much.

Been a while since I've posted here, but let's go ahead and let me share some updates to my system.

I've done a lot of things to the system.

I've upgrade the CPU to an I7-7700 and added in a Cryorig H7 cooler configured in Push/Pull
I added in a 120gb SSD as a boot drive and added in a 2tb HDD.
I've changed out the case from the DIYPC to the Corsair C70 Vengeance.
I upgraded my 750 TI and replaced it with the GTX 1060 strix by ASUS
Lastly, I added in a Seasonic Prime 650w 80+ Titanium.

I've built this machine a while back, but it's no longer meeting my performance standards. I get CPU bottlenecking in BF1 and BFV. I get severe GPU bottlenecking in XCOM, Ghost Recon Wildlands, Sometimes Warthunder and sometimes Battlefield 5. I also encounter RAM issues, due to how heavily I multi-task I very often hit the 16gb of RAM that I have.

CPU Cooler: Noctua - NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler
Memory: Corsair - Dominator Platinum 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Storage: Samsung - 860 Evo 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

Other: Noctua NA-HC4 chromax.white heatsink covers (for NH-D15, NH-D15S & NH-D15 SE-AM4)
Other: Blue Yeti USB Microphone - Lunar Gray

This is my planned overhaul. There may some some eyebrow raising, but I assure you, I know what I am doing.

Let's address the big concerns:
Why a 1600 watt power supply?
The AX1600i is the best power supply on the market. Offering a full bridge topology, totem pole PFC, averaging 93% efficient, and full range of protections. I am not buying it for the wattage, I am buying it for the quality.

Where is the CPU and GPU?
I plan to buy the Case, Case fans, and power supply first. After that, whatever CPU and GPU is out by the time I am ready to buy is what I'll get. I'll likely be going Ryzen.

Why the weird storage configuration?
I prefer to consolidate everything. The 500gb SSD is for the OS and most used programs (Chrome, Discord, Steam, etc). The 1tb SSD is for my most played games. (Battlefield, Warthunder, XCOM 2, etc) and larger programs (Autodesk Inventor, Maya, and Mudbox)
I have a 1tb and 2tb HDD that will remain as is.
The two 4tb HDDs are for mass storage for pretty much everything else.

Do you really need 32gb of RAM?
Yes. I frequently encounter memory issues.

Why not get an AIO Liquid Cooler?
I prefer the reliability, look, and lack of maintenance HSFs offer.

Hopefully, I can order the PSU and case soon. Will keep everyone posted.

I got 5 questions.

Why u got a 1600W PSU?

Where da GPU and CPU at?

Why the wierd ass storage?

Do you really need 32gb ram?

Why not get a liquid cooler?
