i basically ordered an entirely new computer yesterday. got a new cpu, new mobo, new ram, new case... basically everything except the GPU. I am gonna put my gtx1070 in my new comp and buy a rx480 or something to put in my old comp and give it to a friend. i think i might return my dell monitor so i can get a better one of those too :oldlol:

good call. yesterday I returned my dell monitor and got this acer one. the dell was great but the IPS is definitely better than TN. only $500 at costco

with your rig you should be able to get ~110-120ish fps in bf at ultra in 1440p, if you turn the settings down a bit you should be able to hit 140fps easily.

Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Thermaltake TPG-650M Toughpower Grand GOLD 650W ATX
ASUS Sabertooth X79
Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz
Kingston HyperX 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866
EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC2 GAMING iCX, 08G-P4-6573-KR, 8GB GDDR5
Two Samsung PRO SSD

I recently just upgraded the video card like a month ago. So far good enough for my gaming needs. I don't game as much as I used to and my gf got a ps4 so I'm splitting time between the two now. I am regretting the motherboard purchase because I checked and saw on Newegg that there aren't many CPUs nowadays that are compatible with it. But that upgrade wont be anytime soon.

built my new computer tonight

i7-7700k with a cryorig h7
evga gtx 1070
msi z270 sli plus motherboard
16 gigs ddr4 corsair ram 3000mhz
500gb ssd
nzxt s340 pro case

also exchanged my 24" dell TN gsync 1440p/144hz for a 27" acer IPS gsync 1440p/144hz

im amazed at how cold my cpu is running. i read a bunch of horror stories about heat issues with this processor, and i had some problems mounting the cooler, so i figured my cpu would be cooking... but so far i have not seen it top 60c. my next upgrade is probably gonna be a 1080ti or something like that so i can take full advantage of this monitor. i currently get a very reliable 90-100fps in bf1 in 1440p on ultra, which is great, but it would be nice to get up to 140+.

sick. i have the same case and ram.

my intel 6700k gets extremely hot playing bf1. i hit 65-70c regularly. i'm thinking i should re-mount the cooler so i can reapply the thermal paste. i've had temps hit 80c +. maybe it's because i only have 2 case fans, but that's why i watch my temps carefully.

did you buy the monitor from costco?

65-70 isnt too bad compared to the temps ive seen people reporting on reddit and stuff, but remounting the cooler is definitely worth a shot. i am usually hovering around 50c in bf1. i dont have any extra fans or anything either.

i did get my monitor from costco. worth every penny it looks ****ing amazing.

Your cpu will downclock to protect itself from damage. Don't worry about it too much. If you want to brag about temps on reddit, try these steps:

If you only have 2 case fans, it's crucial that your wiring needs to be tucked away neatly out of the airflow. Start there.

Replace the stock fans with something better.
Get the best CPU cooler you can afford.
Monitor the ambient temps of your room. AC units are going to lag behind the longer sessions you play.

thanks. i ordered some better fans. wires are tucked pretty well, my friend is a pc builder and did a good job on tucking my wires.
