Hey Guys, I'm interested in your comments for a new build I'm going to do very soon...

What do you think? is it a good build or not?

Don't really want to spend anymore than what it is at the moment (about $1,500 all up)

Only games i play are - Battlefield 1 & Battlefield 4

CPU - i5-8400  - Coffelake 1151pin
M/B - B250M-D3H - Gigabyte
SSD HD - 500gb - Samsung EVO
GPU -   6G GTX 1060 MSI OC
RAM - 16GB Kit (8GBx2) 2133 - CORSAIR VENGENCE LPX
Case - VIEW 28 RGB - Thermaltake

I have bits from existing PC which I'm going to put in like CD Rom, 2 x 2Tb HHD etc

Cheers

That cpu will need 300 series motherboard, only Z370 is available atm, this one here being one of the cheapest https://www.pccasegear.com/products/41450/msi-z370-a-pro-motherboard the mid range chipset boards, as in, H370 or whatever are not available yet. Otherwise nice build

So i can use any of the Z370 boards? i will be shopping at MSY here in Adelaide and they have a large range of Z370 boards.

you also need a case that supports optical drive (if you want), the view 28 does not

Hey Buellersdayoff - This so going to sound like a silly question, but what does the Optical Drive do on the case?
Yes, any of the z370 boards with a coffee lake cpu. Not sure when they'll be available, but the H370 boards will be cheaper.
You said you have a cd rom drive (optical drive) if you are going to use it then you need a bay/slot for it.
I've changed the ram I accidentally put 8gb in the list previously, it now has 16gb.

Nice. I think with the ebay case the screen sits in those little notches I can't remember 100% now. It has a port on the back for when using with a Pi which is why the OSR one is so deep. I assume it has the two plates as the backplate holds it all in.

The LEDS on the CSL Elite base are pointless, can't see them with either rim I have  ;D I did read there was going to be a firmware update to disable them but haven't seen it.
I was thinking this plate would replace the one you have carbon wrapped. The rest of the pi box you have would remain the same and basically sit in the same position it is currently, only it would be bolted to the wheel base through the new plate. How do have it mounted now, double side tape? Only going by the pictures you posted...

Good stuff. I'd always liked the idea of having one but with no space for it the wife wouldn't be too happy.

I'd seen stuff like this before on this website:
https://www.opensimrigs.com/collections/wheel-display

They had this which is for the LCD screen I have:
https://www.opensimrigs.com/collections/wheel-display/products/sim-display-enclosure

Was tempted to order one but not at that cost + shipping.
so, doing a lot of unsuccessful web searching for print designs of the OSR and the raspberry ebay case, I've come up with something....maybe. If I could get the exact dimensions of the front panel (and if you need the little cut outs) I could extend a bracket from it to screw into the wheel base. maybe add a curve to the top, leave an opening for the shift lights or whatever. so long as you're happy with the current position though

Very neat, amazing technology for the price. Is it very hard to program to achieve the end result that you want?
I'm still trying to work out quality settings and stuff, but, download the 3d file's from thingiverse then modified in the built-in 3d builder (win10), then pop it into the software that came with the printer to create the print file. Put the file on the sd card and go print. You can actually plug the printer into the pc but it's pretty cool that you don't have to. It was easy to set up and use, I spent the most time making sure everything was level.

Going to try this next I don't think it needs the braces but it's something to try.
Edit: You can skip the modified in 3d-builder part for most things, I just needed to merge the bracket piece with the phone case

Picked up an Aldi 3D printer today, first job after some bracelet beads tests was to make a bracket for my sony phone to mount to the fanatec wheel base. Not bad for the first print job, even though it started to lift off the hot bed.... because some youtuber recommended placing a fan next it lol.

Thanks to RaceDepartment.

Looks good, paid mod though, do you know how much?

Looks to be as good as the mod for Rf1 (have you used this?) which is considered to be one of the best mods created for Rf1, it was absolutely amazing in Rf1 (which was a sim I never really liked, too much like ice skating :(). I would happily pay $20 for this mod when you consider how many hours of fun it will provide :) and well over a year in the making , at least with development of AC nearly completed mods will not be broken with every new update :) :) :) :). When you compare the price of a movie ticket for at best 2 hours of enjoyment or 5 cups of coffee, it is extremely good value.
No price has been released as yet and the rumour is 1 free car and the rest paid.
Is it $20? I'd buy it especially if we did a season
I do not know how much it is going to cost, I was just taking a guess.
Was going to post this video a couple days ago, sound effects of the K3 @ 15:00 are awesome.
You are right there , the sounds of these cars really is something else :o :o :o 8) , probably one of the reasons for the delay in release was AC FMOD changes with every update :'(
Just continuing the quote vortex. 8)
LOL

Great race event and series, thanks Wally.
 Guys mentioning the hot medium tyres early on in the season, must have been a bug that was fixed in one of those small updates. Cooking tyres with normal racing didn't seem right, just my guess.
Q. failed to post my fastest practice time, wasn't carrying enough fuel for the session.
R1. Jump start...doh! Drive through, press on to try and make some ground, good clean racing no contacts.
R2. Even more good clean racing try to pass the same guys from r1. Got to the lead briefly but Kcender came storming through and I choked, set my fastest lap trying to follow but hit a sausage on the fast left after corkscrew, huge tank slap but held on for second.
R3. Running with Kcender and Matthew hoping to maintain 3rd but I put tyre into the sand out of turn 4 which kind of got caught on the curb or something, another major tank slap that was not so forgiving and nosed it into the wall. Crew chief said come on its only aero damage so I pressed on with cracked windows and shaking bonnet.
Absolutely awesome race session despite my mistakes, at least they weren't costly for others as they had been in the past. I've used crew chief this round and the last, I find it quite good especially in conjunction with helicorsa, except it gets busy when four wide like the beginning of race two at Okayama. I don't use it with the cobra, doesn't seem right for the era. I didn't bother with downloading opponents names as someone mentioned you hear the same names all the time. It's also funny when you get...for f**k sake, track limits.
