    Dxer got a reaction from JM21 in Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!   
    Just got done transplanting my system into the new case my wife bought me for Christmas.  This thing is heavy. 
    I am going to remove the fans for several LL140s though.  Then I'll finish cleaning it up a bit more with the cabling.

    Just going to throw this out here.  
    If your primary use is for video editing, I think you would be far better with a 2700 and get the extra 4 threads.  That will help quite a bit.  
    Perhaps the pricing is a bit out of range where you are located?

    Dxer got a reaction from YamatoBeats in RAM speed problem   
    What program are you using to see the ram speed?
     
    Typically you would multiply that reading by two.  So, if it says 1600, then it is running at 3200.

    Oh, jesus christ on a stick. I'm using CPU-Z and it's perfectly fine. I had just got done downclocking it so it now shows 3066. I appreciate the help, friendos. Sorry for taking up a post spot.

    Dxer got a reaction from Zando Bob in Is it finally time for an upgrade? #strictly_gaming   
    I am kind of guessing you are in the same boat as me.  I am getting older (51) and gaming isn't really something I do a whole lot of anymore.  
    I had been on the Intel side since the Core2Duo (AMD before that) days when I believed it to be the best bang for your buck since O/Cing was incredible.  Then I ran
    an I5-2500k for about 6 years until a component failed and I built a new machine 2 years ago.  I decided to give AMD a chance with the Ryzen 1600 
    and I never regretted my decision.  For me, it was a nice and cost efficient upgrade with the extra cores and threads.  It still allowed me to play some
    of the games I still play once in a while.  But really helped with photography and some light video work.  
     
    So I believe with any processor you buy now days whether Ryzen or Intel, it will still have enough punch to breeze through any application you toss at it.  So just
    look for the best bang for your buck.  The I5-9600k will definitely be a good single thread performer with a nice 5ghz o/c.

    Oh yeah, that will do well.  Good solid build. 
    I am currently running what you see in my signature.  I just do some light gaming and what little titles I play, I can run them at max settings with good results.
    I also do some photography and some light video editing and it runs my software nicely.  
     
    Don't expect to break any benchmarking records  I believe you should be happy with that build.

    If you just want to game, the 3600.  If you need more cores for productivity, 2700.

    Dxer got a reaction from vapcdoc in Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!   
    My relatively conservative build.  It does need a bit of clean up work.  And actually I need a new case.  I have had this HAF-X for the past 8 or so years now.  The acrylic is pretty scratched up on it.  Specs are in the signature.  
     
    I am getting ready to move into a bit larger place next month.  A new desk will be added as well as a better 2nd monitor.  Only using a 26" TV for my second at the moment.  I hope to have some new pictures to share soon.

    Dxer got a reaction from andrewmp6 in Go Custom or Go AIO?   
    With the NZXT H500, I would stick with an AIO.  You might be hard pressed to fit a custom loop inside that case.  Not impossible though.  
    I did the Kraken x62 in my stepson's H500 and it fits like a glove.  Nice, neat and it works pretty good.
     
    If you want a custom loop, I recommend a bigger case that can accommodate a larger radiator and reservoir.  Also only if you want to get into 
    higher and more extreme overclocking.

    Hello everyone.  I am new to these parts.  Is FutureMark (Mad Onion) forums still alive?  I haven't been able to find them anymore.
    I don't game much anymore but still like to have a half way decent rig.  I am just getting a bit to old to run around and FRAG people. 
     
    I built this last year in June.  I have had this case since 2011.
     
    My humble rig:
    AMD Ryzen 1600
    Corsair H115i Pro RGB
    Gigabyte AB350-Gaming 3
    16gb Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000mhz
    PNY GTX1060 OC
    Mushkin 500GB SSD     6 TB worth of mechanicals
    Corsair CX750 PSU
    Cooler Master HAF-X
     
    Some new upgrades coming in the next couple of months.  Mainly looking for a new case, a M.2 drive, and probably kick the GPU up a notch to the GTX1070.

    And did you make sure you plugged the CPU fan into a CPU fan header and not a chassis fan header?
     
    Sorry if some of these questions sound trivial, but sometimes it is something very simple.

    My Christmas present upgrades.   Thanks to my wife who completely surprised me.
     
    R5 1600   --    R7 2700
    GTX 1060 3gb  -- GTX 1070
     
    I still have some tweaking to do but currently very satisfied with the upgrades.  For the light gaming I do, this is a bit of an overkill though.

    Can we get a complete run down on your system?  
     
    If you have a decent quality 550w power supply, it should be plenty though.
