  1. For now maybe I will stick with it. Though I can upgrade it maybe 1-3 months after the upgrade. Though If I still have extra to spend after securing all the main upgrades needed then I can buy it right off the bat.
  2. Hello and good day LTT forums community, I'd like to ask again on your opinion on which to upgrade to. In my last forum post I asked whether to go for AMD's 3700x/3900x or Intel's 9900k and I've just decided to just go with the 3900X here is the list that I've decided last time. Current specs of my rigCPU: i5-4690k stockMOBO: Asus Z97-KCooler: NZXT Kraken x61RAM: HyperX Fury 2x4GB DDR3 1866MHzGPU: MSI GTX 1080 Gaming XHDD: WD Black 2TBSSD: Samsung 850 Evo 250PSU: Seasonic M12II 620W 80+ Bronze Fully ModularCase: NZXT H440 Razer Edt. Past list CPU: Ryzen 9 3900X MOBO: Aorus X570 Master RAM: G.Skillz Trident Z 2x16GB 3200Mhz Cooler: Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4 SSD: Crucial P1 1TB M.2 Nvme Total Cost: 1,412.58$ So as of now this is what I'm currently thinking of getting. Current list CPU: Ryzen 7 3700XMOBO: Asus X570 Plus or the Aorus Elite(Though I have been told there were some issues with early batch release)RAM: Just gonna with the cheapest good brand that i can get that is 2x8GB ddr4 3200Mhz ram Cooler: Be Quiet Darck Rock pro 4SSD: Crucial P1 1TB M.2 NVME SSDGPU: Zotac Gaming RTX 2080 Super Triple Fan Total cost: 1,692.34$ My question is is it worth to go down to the 3900x to the 3700x and go cheaper on the other parts just to get the rtx 2080 super? or should I just stick with the past list then just try and save up again to get a gpu upgrade? The rig will be used mainly for gaming, streaming, and some video editing(I'm still learning though). For my budget I can stretch it out to max of 1,750$-1,800$ but as much as possible to go below 1,750$ but if it's worth I'm willing to stretch it out to 1,800$. If you guys have any recommendations/changes you want to make you can use this site https://awesome-table.com/-KrkkVbKZR_HZ2x8lsHk/view to check out parts and stuff since pcpartpciker/amazon/newegg is out of the picture cause the prices in the US/EU is so much cheaper and I reside in the Philippines and the other parts aren't available here locally.
  3. Can you possibly me give me a link of the atx model? from something like amazon or newegg or pcpartpicker?
  4. I see thanks for your insight, well as of now I think im not having any problems with my PSU so I can also just stick with the M12II rn also i'll just ask the seasonic focus you are pertaining to is it this the seasonic foccus SGX650? Though its only semi modular if this according to the store site im looking at.
  5. Aight thanks it seems that I've decided on what to get thank you very much.
  6. Thanks, I might just go with the RM550X then. I'll just stick with your recommended voltage to be safe won't go past 1.45V. I see, is the memtest you are pertaining to is it those like memtest86 program? I have used it in the past and general benchmarks something like aid64,cinebench? So no need to adjust things like core clocks and voltages? The pbo and set back can be found in the bios? I'll just stick with the DRP4 then AIO here are pretty pricey rn, I also like the look of the DRP4. I'll just go get the P1 then I'll save like 50% on ssd getting the P1 rather than the 970 evo plus. Noted I think my games right now are just sitting below 500GB so the drive won't get full right away. Edit note: BTW I'd also like to ask, do you recommend updating the x570 mobo bios right away after upgrading?
  7. Thanks, Maybe I'll just go with the Cooler master one or corsair that recommended btw the price of the both PSU's for the 550 vs the 650 is just like around 5-10$ for the MWE and 3-5$ for the RMx should I just go with the 650W? For some power overhead(Not sure if its the right term). I'll check it out thanks.. I see so I just to dial in some numbers and voltages. So max voltages for the ram should just be 1.45V and I should not go past over that right? How do I see/check if the overclock is stable? Do it just not boot up to windows or do I need some application to test it out? Well tbh I both like the looks of both as long as the AirCooler is somewhat big and beefy like the Dark rock Pro 4. So either is fine but if the DRP4 would be enough to give a decent OC if I may get the 3900X then I'll stick with it. I see, here's a link to two retailers that i'm looking at https://dynaquestpc.com/ & https://awesome-table.com/-KrkkVbKZR_HZ2x8lsHk/view I'm also quite leaning to just getting the Crucial P1 1TB I surprising came upon tech deals video regarding NVME drives and got a good grasp on how they perform. I am also quite sure that I don't really do some write intensive applications since I just mainly game on my PC and stream from time to time. Haven't really gotten into video editing yet but have done some video editing once in a blue moon.
  8. Aight thanks for the recommendations. Maybe I'll choose between the MWE 550 gold or the RM550X. Oh btw another question sorry if im asking a lot, what are your thoughts on EVGA psus? I forgot there are some models available here. Hmm, I don't really understand much. But it would be just used as a mass storage for games would it be good enough? If i won't be going for gen4 I'm thinking of just getting the 970 evo plus m.2 though its somewhat expensive i think price is around 230-255$ depending on the retailer. I see, welp might as well avoid that board. Better to be safe than sorry. I see i might as well consider going the ultra rather than the elite if im going with a gigabyte board if i want a cheaper alternative to the master. I'm quite leaning on to just going AMD for my upgrade as of now, since it will be cheaper and the performance isn't that much different compared to going 9900k. The extra $ can go to other parts such as getting a better cooler or maybe get some better fans for my case since the H440 isn't really known to have good airflow. Though im still thorn if I would just go 3700x or 3900x but as you've said the coreoverhead would benefit me when streaming. As I tend to have other apps on while im streaming also one of the games i play which is Black Desert Online can be sent to tray when I want to just afk lifeskill in the game so it also gives the cpu some work while i play other games like dota and etc. Noted, I'll check out cheaper alternatives that is available. Though I do not have any experience in ram overclocking.
  9. I've looked these up the pure power isn't available if i may ask this is from BeQuiet right? The TXM isn't fully modular, the MWE gold is available, the bitfinex isn't available also. If i also may ask can you recommend something from seasonic or other models from corsair? I've also looked these up the mp510 isn't available locally, the P1 is available though for around 100-120ish usd the 660p is only available at 512GB no 1tb variant. What do you mean by not suitable for scratch drives? I'm gonna use it as a storage for all of my games and make the my 2TB HDD as mass storage for documents,pictures, videos and etc. Oh yeah, the Asus tuf is one of buildzoid's recommendation on the gamers nexus vid. So the aorus elite has some problems? How about the aorus ultra though what are your thoughts? Yes, somewhat wanna try to do cpu encoding strean. Though i'm perfectly fine with the quality of stream with using gpu encoding as of now with my gtx 1080
  10. Welp that's true I did one time used my current rig to edit one video for our school project and it was only about 2-3min long video and it took long before it finished.
  11. Haven't really considered the 3600, I only thought that the 3600 is the bang for the buck gaming only cpu.
  12. 1st: I've watched gamersnexus/Buildzoid mobo reviews for the x570 and He recommended that the aorus master is one of the best so I chose that one, 2nd: As of now going for the rtx cards is still far away, but i'd done some bit of streaming in the past using my gtx 1080 and I have been using nvenc for those streams. 3rd: for the RAM looks doesn't matter i just want a good one and the ram options in the shops here in my country are quite limited. Haven't tried memory clocking yet so not sure. 4th: What Wattage should I look for would be something around 750W be enough any specific model/brand you recommend? 5th: Can you recommend some good cheaper alternatives without compromising quality? I think a mobo with decent features and excellent vrm would suffice right? 6th: I looked up the sabrent rocket unfortunately its not available here in my country. any other recommendations? Also not worth going gen4? Hmmm would the 4690k be enough as a dedicated decoding system? If so that would be a good option i think. Yes I think I might try to learn some video editing in the future. Any cheaper alternatives that wouldn't compromise quality, features, and vrms? Welp 20% isn't really a big deal just wanted to ask if going higher frequency ram would give a good amount of performance. I'll read the link
  13. I see thanks then if I go zen2 I'll just change it to the 3200mhz to save some cash. Thank you for your insight.
  14. Thanks for your insight. So basically it won't be a difference whether I go with a 3200mhz low latency than going 3600mhz with a bit higher frequency? Do you think 5% more performance is worth it for an extra 20$ for the 3600Mhz? Also can you give an insight regarding the bios maturity and stuffs? That's one of the reason that's holding me back on going zen2 tbh. Since I'm not that knowledgeable regarding those stuffs and I might screw up when fiddling with those.
  15. Hello LTT community, its been years since I've posted something or asked an advice/opinion here in LTT forums. I also just recently started following/updating myself on PC related news/advancements so please bear with me if I may ask some stupid/newbie questions. So here's the deal, I am planning to upgrade my current rig right now and I'm thorn between going either Intel or AMD. Yes I've been watching reviews or comparisons regarding the "Mainstream Flagship" CPU's from both side but I just can't seem to get to a 100% conclusion on what to upgrade to. There are 3 CPU's that I'm thinking to upgrade to which are the 9900k from intel and the 3700x or 3900x from AMD. So far the only thing that I will do would be Gaming, stream on twitch and maybe in the future do some video editing if I get the urge to learn. Where would I benefit the most in the long run or where would I get the most out of without wasting $. As of now this is the current specs of my rig: CPU: i5-4690k stock MOBO: Asus Z97-K Cooler: NZXT Kraken x61 RAM: HyperX Fury 2x4GB DDR3 1866MHz GPU: MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X HDD: WD Black 2TB SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 250 PSU: Seasonic M12II 620W 80+ Bronze Fully Modular Case: NZXT H440 Razer Edt. The parts that I would buy for the upgrade is: AMD CPU: 3700X or 3900X MOBO: Aorus X570 Master Cooler: BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 4 RAM: Trident Z RGB 2x16GB DDR4 3600MHz CL17 SSD: Corasi MP600 1TB PCIE Gen.4 Total Cost(3900x): $1,532.66 Total Cost(3700x): $1,340.66 Intel CPU: 9900K MOBO: Aorus Z390 Xtreme Cooler: BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 4 RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB 2x16GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16 SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 1TB Total Cost: $1,605.14 I also wanna ask if Zen2 has gotten mature these past months after release or it still has some problems, wanna ask also if I would go with the 3700x/3900x if I would get more performance if i go with a lower frequency ram with a lower latency? Thanks in advance LTT community.
