How long will my CPU hold up?

I had just finished typing a wall of text and now it's lost :Kermitreee:

 

@InfinityVive long story short, warranty stickers don't matter, I don't recommend selling complete systems anyway, if and when you need to upgrade you'd be better off upgrading and selling parts individually.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

I found out disabling hyperthreading increases FPS

You can set core affinity for a game and get the same effect. It's bad programming by the game developers, easily fixed, no need to give up multitasking performance. Also a 9900k has 8 cores, a quad core will suffer more from having HT disabled because tasks will have to be scheduled on the same cores the game is using.

So I don't have to be worried? My PC will hold up will with Triple A games? Tell me your predicts if you want, And goodbye, imma go to sleep.

No one here can answer this question.  But 4 core CPU's without hyperthreading are already showing problems with CPU usage and stuttering in many current games now.  People were starting to see issues with the i5 2500K several years ago in some games.

 

And yes, you wasted money on that CPU. CPU's rarely drop in price from retailers unless there is an official price drop, even long after they're discontinued.  Stuff like old core 2's and i7's were selling for way too much years after Intel discontinued them.  You're still going to be paying full price for old, obsolete tech.  You have to buy it second hand either used or from a discount seller.

I3-8100 has four cores, no hyperthreading, and 3.6 GHz with no turbo. At least the 9100 can turbo to 4.2. The 8100 is kind of like a much older Intel CPU that doesnt support overclocking with the 9100 comparing to some that do.

I think you will be good for about 2 more years. Then you will have to upgrade your whole system, because lga 1150 socket motherboards dont support ddr4 memory. Maybe get a amd ryzen 3000 series later and a ssd. Before buying stuff on the internet try to look locally as I found a pc with 8gb of ram, 240gb ssd with an i5 4460 for just $230.
