  1. My parents don’t allow me to get a PC

    This is not good advice
  2. Torn between the two

    If you are going for 1080p gameplay I would go for the 1070ti system because a 1070ti is already more than enough for 1080p and a 1080 would be even more overkill. Also the 1070ti system has a better cpu so considering you are already good for games the bonus cpu power could be beneficial in other things you decide to do

    Nice! I bought mine for $250! Though the shipping was $80
  4. General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion

    Very cool! that is pretty good! I am hoping to also hit 4.5 with my system once I finish my cooling system. It is a really good speed to hit Have you run cinebench?
  5. General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion

    I have seen this yes, I don't know why it does it but it has done the same thing for my system
  6. PC BUILDING ENTHUSIASTS

    Nice rig! Also this is what you were looking for
  7. Dual Xeon 5150 for PUBG

    Like others have said the clock speed is a little slow but yeah it could run it. Also you earn brownie points for wanting a dual socket system

    Are you in the US? If so shipping would be pretty cheap

    Yeah Bronze isn't preferable but if you can find one on sale it would still be good, form what I hear they are quality power supplies despite being bronze rated. If you are interested, after I test my new psu I would be up for selling the 750W gold rated one that I have.

    Unless you are going 4-way SLI you should be good. The x series xeons use a lot of power when overclocked but you should be okay with 550w on a good psu. Until this morning I have been running two of the x5690 in my system and I have had them overclocked all on a 750W psu. The reason I am no longer using that psu is because it does fall short when overclocking two xeons along with a water pump and some other things. Regardless, the cx550m should be plenty for a single socket system

    @Intelfreak I'm sorry to hear about your loss! that is really unfortunate
  12. General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion

    You can always send me your system for "testing"
  13. Google home connected to bluetooth speakers

    It kind of sounds like you haven't tried it yet. Just try and see what happens.

    Oh nice those templates will be a life saver! Also I think I have bits that I can use for the screw holes but I will need to get that big hole saw

    It didn't occur to me that I would just need to drill holes for the fans a mounts, I was thinking I would need to cut out a rectangle for the whole rad lol
