    That's pretty leet that your guess is over nine thousand.

    @The Benjamins can you delete my first entry, forgot the 3700x was 12 cores.

    Here's my math. Below are my charts. Based on simple math and a 15% IPC Boost. Speed (Single Core) Speed (All Core) SC MC 7 2700x 4.3 4.2 174 1855 3600x 4.8 4.8 223 2133 3700x 5 5 233 3333

    H100i vs Cryorig R1 Universal

    Well the fans are pretty flat compared to.more.open fans. I'm curious if my pump is failing or it has air bubbles it's fine if it's working as intended but I need a conclusion for my video if possible xD.

    H100i vs Cryorig R1 Universal

    So I am comparing the 2 for a video I am working on. I have a very small ATX case (Fractal Design Meshify) and use the R1. I also had an H100I Laying around. I hooked up 2 NZXT Static pressure fans to it and mounted it up top, Even in Cinebench, the R1 is getting a difference of 13-14*C. I really expected it to be closer. Cooler is top mounted because my vega 64 has 5mm of front clearance :(. I have to wonder if my H100I is failing. Sure it sat for a year but it had little use. Thermal paste spread seemed fine, used cryorig's stuff on both. Cinebench on my 2700x 4.1GHz OC @ 1.4V is pushing 81*C after normalized to 20*C vs 67*C.

    For people that sell PC's, what is the worst responses you get?

    Even the office PCs I sell to businesses have an SSD. 240GB and I map their docs, downloads and desktop to a server drive. With how cheap SSDs are I forgo HDDs in many cases.

    CPU Rebooting after 20-30 min under cpu load

    For rebooting, try rolling back the graphics driver if it only does it during graphically intensive scenarios. Then take out all 4 ram sticks and test 1 at a time. Use Aida 64. If all pass, try in combos of 2. Then try remounting the board. Could definitely be shorting.

    Can I use 3 ram sticks

    If running at 2133MHz then ya not an issue.
  10. Hey everyone, Steve here from PC Budget Solutions and I was curious for those who build a ton of PC's and sell, what are some of the stupidest and annoying messages/emails you get? My target audience is generally parents with kids who want to game. What I find funny is I often get the guy who built 1 or 2 PC's tell me that I am overcharging by $75-120 or so dollars and that he can built it for less. I always sigh because no crap dude, you think I am going to build 100+ PC's a year at cost? I always encourage someone to build their own, I don't sell to enthusiast. I sell to people who value spending 10-15% over cost for peace of mind and someone who can deliver a product that will meet the wants/needs of the target. So, what absurd emails, messages or comments do you see when selling products, even if it's other industries I'd love to hear.

    Ryzen 3000 Leaks

    Steve here from PC Budget Solutions and I want to chime in. For those that don't know I am a HUGE AMD advocate ever since Bulldozer was such a failure. During that time most PCs that came from my office were Intel. Until Ryzen came around where I went 75% with Ryzen and 25% with Intel. I have hope that AMD can push speeds to near 5GHz with a 5% IPC boost which should push them near or slightly past Intel. If these leaks would be true, Intel would honestly, become the new Bulldozer. AMD would have a 10% IPC advantage, matching or exceeding clock speeds, wreaking havoc on price and core count. 14nm yields couldn't match this and with the struggle of yielding good results from 10nm, Intel would be in serious trouble for 2 years, up to possibly 5 years. I would be exceed but don't go getting a 2nd mortgage though. That being said, if AMD does release anything close to these, me and my team will do our real world reviews of the entire lineup!

    Cheapest but legal ways to acquire Windows Licenses

    Unfortunately that would be a conflict of interest with my work. We are a channel company and our channel partners are almost all Microsoft Partners. But even so, I would only get a discount moving large volumes and only 10% at best.

    Cheapest but legal ways to acquire Windows Licenses

    Indeed, internally idc, but since I work professionally in the SaaS world I have to comply. FYI to anyone reading, I've been building systems for years, nearly 700 systems. I make a little money and for fun as well as my YouTube Channel.

    No unfortunately it's against eBay's ToS. Hence why when I have purchased in the past they show up as "game codes".

    Cheapest but legal ways to acquire Windows Licenses

    So I work in the SaaS space so I have to be extremely careful with system building. I've been building for years and while many local competitors use Kinguin/eBay, I have moved away from that. Most systems I sell are unactivated and falls on the user to license the unit. For many sales I do purchase a key but Windows 10 Home runs $100. I've considered partnering with Microsoft but even some of the distribution channels I work with for my 9-5 job, their discounts are 10% off of MSRP so that is not a route either. Lastly, I've considered MSDN licenses but those are not for resale. So outside of dropping $100 for a system builder/oem key, is there any legitimate and cheaper avenue to take? I will be incorporating soon and this is the final hurdle to overcome if possible.
