  1. 800$ Gaming Pc HELP ME !

    I've used the same module in my B350 Prime-Plus and it ran at its rated speed (well, 2933). EDIT: Nevermind, confusing ASUS and ASRock again lol.
  2. 800$ Gaming Pc HELP ME !

    I'm not the best with power supplies, but JG gave it a 9.4/10. Granted it was in 2013, so standards change all the time. It looks like a solid choice - just not as modern as other options If you have an alternative that's better and will keep the budget around $900, you're more than welcome to recommend.

    This is the best I could do for $800, but I cut some corners.

  4. According to this review by Kokatu Australia, the majority of RX 570s were <= $300 AUD at launch. https://www.kotaku.com.au/2017/05/amd-radeon-rx-570-and-rx-580-review-a-little-extra-power-goes-a-long-way/ Even if I use $300 (making the GTX 1060 3 GB about $50 cheaper like ya stated), the price % difference is still pretty significant unfortunately. And holy crap, $305 for an R9 380?? Edit: Actually, I guess that price makes sense. The 380 was essentially the RX 570/580 of its respective time 3 years ago.
  5. Just did some quick 'n dirty research because I'm bored and have no school work . Based on what I see, AMD cards were affected much than Nvidia cards - even in Australia. It makes sense considering that they're better at CC mining than the competition. According to internet archive, and using your @mr moose's preferred retailer, the 1060 3 GB and RX 470 (identical to 570 in MSRP) stayed between 250 and 300 AUD in April of 2017 - right before Ethereum shot up in price. Of course prices fluctuate with deals all the time, but the 250-300 range seems consistent for both, no matter the brand. Today, the cheapest GTX 1060 3 GB is about 320 AUD on the site (though out of stock). The cheapest RX 570 450 AUD (also out of stock). The price difference in AUD between the cheapest 1060 3 GB from April 2017 and today is about 23% ($260 -> 320). The price difference in AUD between the cheapest RX 570 from April 2017 to February 2018 is 73% ($260 -> 450). It doesn't look like they've increased by the same margin. Even if you account for the fact that the 1060 3 GB might be $50 cheaper on average, the RX 570 still has a noticeable price percentage change over the 1060.
  6. i5 8600k or i7 7700k for gaming

    Oh, that's tough. Yeah if that's the case then the 7700K is a better purchase. Here in the USA, you can pick up Z370 boards for as low as ~$120.
  7. i5 8600k or i7 7700k for gaming

    8600K performs within the margin of error of the 7700K on average in games & productivity, has more cores, is cheaper, and uses a newer platform (though it's more of a moot point than anything else). 8600K FTW
  8. Sounds like an episode of Black Mirror.
  9. Budget Build Sub $300

    Looks solid. What games is he playing? I would try and pick up something stronger than a 670. It's a bit slower than a GTX 1050 and consumes more power.
  10. ITX x399. I don't care how AMD and mobo manufacturers, MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    1. Lurick


      If they can make x299 ITX boards then I'm sure x399 isn't too far off.

      I could have sworn I saw an ITX x399 on BitWit or Paul's Hardware or something but I can't seem to find it so it might have been x299 I was thinking of.

      Think about it.  The socket is only just touching the first PCIe Slot, so theoretcially it can happen.

  11. I'll experiment a bit more and see what makeshift solution I can make. The splitter looks nice, but like you said, it's another opportunity for potential failure. Unfortunately, I don't think I have many options, so this may have to do. You can also try @Bananasplit_00's solution too and drain it manually. That's how I did it both times I reconfigured the loop
  12. But you have a drain port at the bottom, yes?
  13. My only regret was failing to mod a drain port on there. It took almost an hour to drain it without one. There is a part at the top of the res, but if you use it as a drain, you risk running the loop dry.
  14. More Intel leaks.. this one is not good though

    I just want to say that the video was very interesting. Thanks for sharing
  15. Any specific models or I should generally stick with that brand? I didn't even know pre purchase inspections exist lol. I do that at my local auto shop, right?
