Rate my pc build

Recommended Posts

Nice midrange system build. 

 

Well I would have gone for a Z board and eventually an I5 K. 

 

Jayz2Cents just made a video yesterday showing the benefits of hyperthreading due to the zombiload attack and intels advise to disable hyperthreading. 

 

the lost performance wasn't really that big. So like I always said, an I5 K is enough ^^


2 Main Systems (mine and my late wifes): AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX. (one of those got a Gainward Phoenix GS 1060 if I had waited only a month longer ^^) 

 

On the Road: Acer Aspire 5 Model A515-51G-54FD, Intel Core i5 7200U, 8 GB DDR4 Ram, 120 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, Intel CPU GFX and Nvidia MX 150, Full HD IPS display

 

Media System: Asrock ASRock Z87 Extreme4/TB4, Intel Core i5 4460, 16 GB Ram DDR3 1600 ADATA XPG, 1 275 GB SSD, 4 Seagate Ironwolf 4TB HDD in raid 5, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX (the 560 will be replaced with one of the 760 due to better effeciency)

 

(Abit Fatal1ty FP9 IN SLI, C2Duo E8400, 6 GB Ram DDR2 800, far too less diskspace, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX broken need fixing)

 

Nostalgia: Amiga 1200, Tower Build, CPU/FPU/MMU 68EC020, 68030, 68882 @50 Mhz, 10 MByte ram (2 MB Chip, 8 MB Fast), Fast SCSI II, 2 CDRoms, 2 1 GB SCSI II IBM Harddrives, 512 MB Quantum Lightning HDD, self soldered Sync changer to attach VGA displays, WLAN

Keep in mind the 7700K needs a 200-series motherboard, while the 8th 8600K or 8700K need 300-series boards.

IMO the 8700 non K is a pretty good option, but for the price nowadays a 2600X looks like a steal too (at around 160 USD).

 

But it might just be worth it to sit on this parts list for a week to see how Ryzen 3000 would be.

Agreed, 8700 + B360 is probably the way to go if uses directly benefit from Intel processors. Otherwise, wait for Zen 2.

With the savings done by getting a 2600X + B450 you could upgrade the system to an RTX 2070, with way more direct benefits to gaming. That is kind of a hard thing to ignore though.

I'm writing this comment with a Kolink Observatory RGB case beside me...

 

The Matrix is real

 

But seriously it's an OK case. I would recommend something different though, the fans are loud and the RGB isn't great

That's a recipe for disaster.

Not really. It is better than the stock cooler. I would buy an Arctic Freezer though instead.

Other than the psu its a reasonably good build. I would suggest something like Corsair - RMx (2018) 550 W or SeaSonic - FOCUS Plus Gold 550 W instead. Both are withing a few £ of the CXM.

First one is ok, second one has a ton of issues with ripple on high end cards, noise, only 1 peg connector causing voltage drops so i cannot recommend it.
