Microsoft Surface Book 2 15in review
Hi Guys, first post so hi and happy new year.
I have been thinking about doing my first build. Could you let me know what you guys think of this build and if you think I will have any compatability issues and the like.
Motherboard: Asus Rog Viii Hero
RAM: Corsair vengeance 16GB 3200MHz
Case: Enthoo Evolv ATX Glass
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
HDD: Seagate ST4000DX001 hybrid 4TB
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
Optical: Bluray drive
Power Supply: Thermaltake TR2 S 700W
GPU: GTX 1080
This will be my first build so its a bit new to me but I think these components work well for what I want. Do you think they will all be ok together, specifically the power supply. Will it be enough for everything.
Thanks in advance guys.
Happy new year to you too Martin.
Will it be enough for everything.
Yes it will. It's an extremely well-specified PC that will perform all tasks very quickly.
A 700W power supply will be more than enough for the components you've listed.
SSD and a Hybrid HDD is probably overkill and, in my opinion, gain you little advantage. Don't drop the SSD but drop the Hybrid Drive
I have read through the Specs and found no reference to the "spin" speed. of this drive so assume that it's 5800rpm. Under normal circumstances you would get faster responses from an HDD with a rotation speed of 7200rpm
As said above, the 700w is plenty for your current spec but if you think you may wish to upgrade your spec further in the future, it's a good idea to check out what your power needs might become.
I started my rig with a 550w supply and when I upgraded my spec, I needed to upgrade my power supply to 850w. I've now got a 550w power supply sitting around waiting for a use to be found.
.......Hybrid HDD is probably overkill and, in my opinion, gain you little advantage.
That depends on what Martin's going to be storing on that drive. If it's frequently used programs and games then the SSHD's 8GB SSD cache will make a big difference.
........ the "spin" speed. of this drive so assume that it's 5800rpm.
It's actually 5900 RPM for the 4TB model. The 1TB & 2TB models have a speed of 7200 RPM so they will perform a tiny bit better.
Brilliant thanks guys. I currently already have the gtx 1080, the 700w power supply and the bluesy drive in my current pc. So I will reuse those parts. Then buy everything else. But that's great to hear about the power supply. Eventually I would like to look at SLI 1080s so I might need to check the power supply at that point. But should be good for now.
The HDD is something I'm questioning. Might go for a western digital blue. But now it sure yet.
I plan to use the computer a lot for gaming and work as I'm a software engineer.
Thanks again for your input guys.
