    i9 Core in an older mobo?

    Exactly the information I was hoping you wonderful people would have! Thank you!
  2. Hey all, Apologies if this is a dopey question. As I know socket size should be what I care about, but wanted some feedback in case there are nuances I should know in addition? I'm tempted to get an i9-9900k, but my mobo is an MSI B150 PC Mate. Will this fit? and work in this mobo or should I just upgrade the mobo, too? If so. What would be a good upgrade without spending a crazy amount more? (DDR4 memory, GTX 1080) Thanks!

    That's Swiss Francs, right?

    Desktops would be better, but a lot of geologists etc. spend a lot of time working in the field on mine sites etc. So if he's gathering info or being given files for GlobalMapper and such can make a difference to what he could expect to do. Regardless, for something like CAD stuff or ArcGIS etc. they're not the most demanding things in the world. But like you said. Budget determines a lot.

    I actually used to buy laptops FOR geologists and hydrogeologists etc. in my last job. What sort of budget do you have? What I used to buy them were decent i5/i7 core Dell laptops (precision series) with Nvidia M4000M video cards. Pricey machines, but great for those who need to travel. The same principal applies to gaming machines as CAD, ArcGIS or anything else. 3D rendering, as effectively as possible. If you can let us know a budget and your region I'm sure we can make some recommendations.
  6. Hi everybody! (hi Doctor Nick!) So, I have just finished pimping up my first ever gaming PC. I am looking for feedback and any way I can improve on this build for cheap. Either aesthetically or performance-ly. Inspired by the idea of Craigslist bargain hunting in Scrapyard Wars and giving myself a budget of £800 (Yup, UK), I set out to get my best possible deal. What I ended up with is the following: NZXT H440 Case (w. PSU) MSI B150 PC Mate Mobo 2 x 8 GB Hyper X Fury DDR4 RAM Nvidia GTX 1080 256GB M.2 SSD 1 TB HD i7-6700 Concerned at the cooling from the rubbish stock fans I've added the following: 3 x Corsair ML120 in the front 2 x Corsair ML140 in the roof 1 x Corsair LL140 at the back (RGB, but dont have an RGB controller.... yet!) 1 x 120mm RGB fan from some random company I cant even remember. The case looked really... boring. Plain. I felt it needed some R, some G and some B. So I bought 2 x £10 strips off Amazon and the result is below. Total cost: £730.00. So £70 under budget. Please let me know your feedback and if it looks okay or could I make it better cheaper in any way at all. Very happy to listen and learn. Have a great day! -EC

    I actually learned quite a lot in the first 2 months of not putting more than 10 minutes a day in. I think I can crack it with another year of practicing with friends in Fortnite haha.
