    i5 9600k v i7 8700k / 9700k

    This is what I was thinking regarding HT. The 9700k is actually the exact same price in the UK (atleast from my retailer) so don't know how that affects the decision?

    i5 9600k v i7 8700k / 9700k

    Mainly Adobe products such as Premiere, Photoshop and some After effects. OBS for streaming / capturing Then many different IDE's for different platforms. I am looking to get the build complete this week so not really looking to wait unfortunately.
  3. Hi so I'm about to purchase parts for a new gaming and streaming / all round rig (bits of video / graphic editing and programming, nothing major) I had originally picked out the i5 9600k but having seen some reviews and especially the gamers nexus video I am having second thoughts. I am now also looking at the i7 8700k or the 9700k, they are currently the same price with my retailer. Out of the three, which do you think is best option? How much does hyperthreading make a difference etc...

    Time to upgrade the HAF X? [SOLVED]

    Thanks for the detailed response. I think for myself then the cheaper 'h500' model would work just fine. I think this is what I will end up purchasing. Thanks also @LukeSavenije

    Time to upgrade the HAF X? [SOLVED]

    I honestly think you might be spot on with the H500, somehow didn't realise before that it comes with mesh and plastic option. Gets really good reviews too. I had been looking at the H500P Mesh but didn't like it in the white variant, this is much nicer. Is there that much of a massive difference between this base H500 and the H500M to warrant the 'm' being almost twice the price?
  6. So I am looking at building a new system (post about that in appropriate forum) But it's going to be an i5 9600k / RTX 2080 build. I currently have a HAF X which I purchased about 6-7 years ago. Its excellent, great airflow etc.... as everyone already knows. It is however, showing its age and the filters are all clogged up now, with cleaning not being the easiest and I have lost a few fixtures and fittings. So anyway, I am looking at a new case, I want something with still good airflow, admittedily not sure I'll get something on par with the HAF X, as I am pretty sure I would like a glass panel on the sides which means I'll lose the massive side fan. I also don't want to go RGB mad but I would like some, I am getting a RGB cpu cooler, so a couple included RGB case fans would be nice. Other than that, I would like a front IO with atleast a couple USB 3.0/.1 ports and a fan / rgb control button if possible and good cable management. Will take any suggestions at all (dont mind if its full or mid, I'm used to the HUGE HAF X)

Only other things I need to decide on are, 1) what case to get, I really love the HAF X I have, its treated me really well these last 6-7 years and has amazing temperatures but its definitely seen some use and the filters etc are quite dirty and very hard to clean. Also I really like the look of some of these tempered glass cases about now, can anyone recommend one with good air flow? I kinda like the idea of a bit of RGB not going to go all out on it though, providing there are some included in the case it's unlikely I will buy more unless necessary for airflow. Then also, would it be worth the extra cash to go for an i7 9700k eventhough they have taken away hyperthreading? (I think I'm set on an intel system) Thanks for everyone's responses up to now also.

    Upgrade / New Build

    Hi so I am looking at a new build, but thinking I could potentially use some parts I already have from my system I built around 6-7 years ago (reason for upgrade) I am in the UK and tend to use ebuyer.com for parts but open to any suppliers. My current spec is: Intel core i7 3770k 3.5Ghz socket 1155 (not oc'ed) 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Kingston RAM Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H ATX Motherboard Geforce GTX 970 GPU (Upgraded more recently than the rest of the PC) Coolermaster 850w Silent Pro M2 Modular PSU Coolermaster HAF X High Airflow Full Tower Seagate 2TB 3.5" SATA Hard Drive So obviously I know to upgrade my cpu I also need a new mobo and new RAM and could benefit from a SSD, other than that I currently use 2 1920x1080p monitors and want to keep a dual monitor setup although would look to move to a higher resolution in the future. I use my PC mainly for gaming and work witch include some use of programs such as photoshop and after effects. I also occasionally stream / record gameplay. Any suggestions are very welcome but I would like to keep the build at around the £1000 price mark but open to go higher if necessary or plan for components to be added in the future rather than right now.
