    I realized I can do screen captures with my Atomos Ninja V, so I thought I'd try it out and show off my X5460 and GTX 780Ti trading blows in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. In villages with a lot of NPCs, framerates will drop to 20-30, strangely without CPU or GPU reaching 100%. Something else going on there. In areas with actual gameplay, fps keeps between 40-70 for the most part, and it's a quite enjoyable experience
  2. Any extra cooling for the Northbridge? I have a QX9650 on an Asus P5E Deluxe, and boy does that NB heatsink get hot when I try to get it near 4GHz.

    So.. Here's the X58-UD3R/W3680 system. This will be hooked up to my 1080p projector and the hifi in the livingroom. It now has the 6x4GB Blue Dominator 1600 sticks, and tho the UD3R has two rear USB3 ports, I also added a PCIe card for two extra rear slots, and to be able to use the front I/O USB3. The 1060 6GB (Coldzero.eu backplate) also ended up in this system, aswell as another topmounted exhaust fan. I'm still tweaking the OC on this one with one eye on the watt-meter, as this will be put to good use from time to time. It's graduated with a 4.5GHz OC and 1000+ CB, so I think I'll settle for a bit less power consumption for now. 24GB is probably overkill, but hey, I can borrow 12GB if I stumble across another X58 board. Note that the front panel is not fully clicked in place. It just rests on the top mounting hole. This actually makes a big enough difference for me to bother with it. Maybe I'll figure out some solution with magnets to keep it in place a bit better.

    The AIO performance wasn't ALL that bad. But on this P35/X5460-system the CPU-temps have never been the issue really. The problem I had was the GPU/VRM/NB-temps. That mod made a bigger difference for those parts than for the CPU iirc. It's a different setup now in the P300. Different cooler, fan speeds, voltages etc, so I can't really draw any conclusions.

    I modded the front on an S340 Elite for better AIO performance. Made a post about it here. Today, I would make the same mod again, but for 2x 140mm, without the gap.

    Thanks I have a 8700K/1070Ti main rig, so no worries here either. And yeah you SHOULD put your X58 back together! Pick your cooling solution first and decide for a case based on that would be my advice. Or the other way around (you already know this ofc). And don't forget the aesthetics
  7. If you go for a gpu upgrade, you'd better make sure your powersupply can handle it. I've seen a good bunch of old OEM computers that only have crappy 250W PSUs, more often than not without any 6/8-pin connectors. You might be better off with a 1030/1050(ti)

    After getting my P55/X3440 sold, and setting up one of the X58-systems for sale, my good ol' P35/X5460-system got robbed of a few parts and went through a rough time just sitting on a shelf. It kinda broke my heart, so I've picked up some brand new stuff for it. New parts for the build is a Phanteks P300 White, Be Quiet System Power 9 600W Bronze, CM ML240L RGB and 2x Corsair AF120 White and a Phanteks LED strip. Total cost around $200. It's a bit loud atm wIth the AF's spinning around 1200rpm, and the AIO-fans at 2000rpm under load, but the temps are awesome. A brand spanking new 4.1GHz overclock sees the hottest core max out at 72C (the other three cores 62C-65C) after consecutive CB-runs. (Score 446 btw). This with the fans mounted in pull-config with the pretty restrictive front panel of the P300. The 780Ti stays below 70C, This little beast struggles on, still playing AAA games on it WIll follow up with the evolution of my X58's. Know you guys love some build photos

    Fun Xeon build

    Does that even have a PCIe slot?

    1070ti on this old PC?

    I run a Xeon W3680 @4.5GHz on an EX58-UD3R, so there are a few options if you wanna go the 6/12 Xeon route. It's actually a X58-UD3R I have, so never mind me.

    My X58 boards have USB3, but I also use a pcie-card for the chassi connectors. Haven't really checked the transfer speed, but games load and run fine from an SSD with a USB/SATA cable tho. Not sure about nvme m2, but there should be info on it in this thread.

    Getting my old Abit IP35-E / X5460 a new house. The Phanteks P300 looks great in white, and I really look forward to get the build going. Waiting for a Be Quiet System Power 9 650W, a CM Masterliquid ML240L RGB and a used 970 4GB. This beast just managed 30-50fps in Wildlands with a 1060 6GB. 1440p, Ultra Textures etc etc. Turning "shadows" to medium and "level of detail" to low made the biggest difference I could notice. Actually a very enjoyable and (mostly) stutter free experience. Tho the cores were pretty hammered at 100% usage

    Games that require SSE4.2 capable CPU

    That's good info. Thanks. Fortnite, Dota, and that bunch works really well.

    Games that require SSE4.2 capable CPU

    Yes! I thought my question was pretty straight to the point. I'm just interested in how widely spread the use of SSE4.2 is, and if I end up selling a system to a friend for the kids to play Fortnite, CS:GO, Dota2 or whatevs, I wanna be perfectly straight with what they can expect of it. I have an 8700K/1070Ti-system, so I'm good, I do however like to poke around with old hardware and see what it's capable of. There are a bunch of C2Q benchmark on Youtube, so I'm a bit curious about this, I'll probably end up buying it sooner or later anyways.

    Games that require SSE4.2 capable CPU

    Yes yes, but.. I'm asking if there are more games than AC:O and Quantum Break that will not even start due to SSE4.2 requirements.
