  1. Corsair is selling the RM750X for $70 on Amazon Renewed. I've bought 2 of them.
  2. You mean Ivy bridge? 3rd gen hex cores still kick ass and keep up with current gen midrange offerings like the 9600KF.
  3. i5 3470 16GB G.Skill Sniper 2400MHz ASUS GTX 1060 3GB with Power Boosted BIOS (Flashed via SPI) Corsair RM750X 2x 1TB Seagate Barracuda 2x PNY CS900 120GB SSD Custom Colored Motherboard with Unlocked BIOS (Flashed via SPI) Custom 120mm AiO (tubing and copper radiator) Custom paint on case ASUS TUF RGB Fans + 120mm In Back (92mm original) Custom Drive Sleds Custom Cable Cover Runs any game 1080p Medium or better
  4. Oof Even i5-3470 bottleneck 1660 less...I've used the 1660 and I am not impressed.
  5. your FX8320E is bottlenecking your 1660
  6. What are some unique CPUs? Like the Intel Xeon E5-2692 that was created EXCLUSIVELY for the TH-2 supercomputer? Some like the unreleased Auburndale CPUs, or ES Itaniums? I've heard rumors about mobile i5s with 3 cores (as opposed to 2).
  7. Why would you go with a more expensive and inferior option?
  8. Some B350 boards have an unstable beta BIOS available, but affronting that there's no other way it will work.
  9. uhhhh my Seagate Barracuda Compute 4TB has 7 platters and like 350mb/s sequential read/write and 250mb/s random seek. It only costs $70 NOB. FRAPS is a screen capture program know for massive file sizes and heavy write cycles. Having slow writes will drop frames in whatever is being captured. My seagate compute can withstand the full write brunt of 1440p capture without dropping any frames. I don't know what shitty hard drives you're using but new HDDs are very good for general purpose use.
  10. B350 does not support 3rd generation Ryzen CPUs. You need B450 or later. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-x570-chipset-first-gen-ryzen-support,39474.html
  11. Try out the DEEPCOOL MATREXX 70. I have one. Lots of exciting features. $100 gets you front and side glass panels, 2x 360mm support, a glass PSU shroud, 3x front 120mm RGB fans with controller, illuminated front panel ports, extensive drive support, SSI-CEB support, high quality materials, and a clean boxy shape. The drive cage is [re]movable, the top part of the shroud comes off, it has a bottom LED strip already integrated, cable management is clean and roomy, it's not too big, and the front glass comes off super easy if you need those extra CF/m. The included PCIe slot covers are mesh, there's potential vertical mounting with a DEEPCOOL adapter, it's quiet (for me), and it comes with front, top, and bottom air filters. It has 2x 3.5 inch drive support and 4x 2.5 inch support, although you can fit as many drives in as you want if you have a dremel. You'd think that the glass would cut off airflow but it's surprisingly good. My blower 1080 stays around 72c in games that are GPU bound at 1440p and my E5 1650 v3 stays under 60c. My Movie.mp4
  12. I did a lot better than that for around $1000 LMFAO Parts and prices (NOB = New Open Box): i7 5820K - $100 Gigabyte GA-x99 UD3 - $100 NOB, got original packing and accessories 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200 - $100 New MSI GTX 1080 (Blower) - $299 NOB, OEM Dell version Samsung 860 Evo 500GB SATAIII - $40 NOB, original packing Corsair RM750X - $70 NOB, original packing Seagate Barracuda Compute 7200 - $75 NOB, basic packing DEEPCOOL Matrexx 70 - $100 - New DEEPCOOL Captain 360 EX Gamer Storm - $100 - New upHere 6-fan RGB kit - $35 - New I don't really care about NVME, there's no benefit in my personal use case so the price premium is not worth it to me. I can always upgrade later. I plan to do dual 1080s (this is a workstation, NOT a gaming PC) because I do a LOT of work with Blender, GIMP, and video rendering, plus I stream from time to time. I don't think I could have gotten better performance for the money. I was originally gonna do an i5 9400KF but I'm glad I didn't because the 5820K thrashes it for a lower price, literally just because of hyperthreading.
  13. fixing pins isnt too hard unless you like, depressed half the socket with your thumb. I build an X99 rig with a Xeon E5 1650 v2 and a GTX 1080 for under $1000US, which is 1475AUD. The E5 2670 v3 is only $100US and is $75US if you like Japan enough. That's 12 cores, 24 threads and a lot of video rendering! So, if you sell some stuff you can get X99. I don't like new stuff because it's expensive as shit and old WS/Server stuff is a lot cheaper and often performs the same, or even outperform it. I've had my old E5 1650 v2 match an i7 8700 and it's only $100US.
  14. what are you using for a Haswell Xeon? If you're using 1150 those only go to quad core, but X99 is Haswell and you can get desktop E5s for X99 that have 18 cores.
