Still want a 6950X...

 

I don't think I'll ever stop wanting an Extreme Edition Core i7 until I get one.

I don't think I'll ever stop wanting an Extreme Edition Core i7 until I get one.

^^^ People still want $700 or so for them though 😢. The 5960X is back to around $300-350 though, it had spiked up to $500-700 for a month or two and that's a yikes. For OC potential I'd prefer the 5960X, especially a J-bin, some hit 5 on water and I'm seeing a good few guys on forums getting 4.5 at 1.14v or so and 4.7 at 1.3. For reference my 5820K (lol, also a J-bin, IDK if that matters much on those chips) does 4.4 at 1.32v, and that's a 6 core instead of 8. For that biggboye core count the 6950X is top dog though. IIRC it matches/slightly beats X299's i9 7900X, loses slightly in multithreaded workloads. Funnily enough, those i9s go for around the same price though, so you could get an X299 setup for about the same cost and have better NVMe compatibility out of the box and such than most X99 motherboards. But you also get some very questionable TIM and I think even more heat from those chips. 


Always try googling your motherboard and looking at the spec sheet and manual - OEMs keep those up for a reason - and maybe you'll learn something 🤔

X99 is still bae ❤️

I'll probably run my X99 rig into the ground, there's so much potential when starting on the lowest end chip and having the power and cooling to handle the higher end ones.

 

The tradeoff between 6950X and 7900X is really only "i9" vs "Extreme Edition" xD

Yeah, the only real advantage the 7900X has are ones X299 brings, but X99 can already do most of that. On-board NVMe support is better on X299, but a simple add-in card solves that for X99 (My X99 Classy has an NVMe slot but it's slower than it should be due to being pretty much 1st gen, so I run my 960 Evo off a PCIe add-in card). X299 does a couple things better than X99, but I'm not maxing out my USBs or PCIe lanes anyways so those aren't of much use:

I suspect the higher end CPUs will still hold value as they're the maximum people on the platform can upgrade to. The low end is dropping though. 5820k are almost given away, and I got a 5930k for not much more just for the extra lanes that I don't need.

 

I'm also keeping an eye on X299 CPUs for similar reasons, but that's probably for another thread...

In a few years, we'll probably see an X299 thread much like the X58 and X99 threads.

 

X299 is a good platform, but I don't see enough benefits of it for me personally to take it over X99.

X299 is a good platform, but I don't see enough benefits of it for me personally to take it over X99.

That was the main takeaway of the article by Puget Systems I pulled that chart from: https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/X299-vs-X99-What-is-the-Difference-979/

 

Basically X299 has more PCIe lanes for moar NVMe SSDs, and lets you use the newer CPUs. And yee, in a good few years the prices should have dropped, but that's assuming Intel and AMD keep putting out CPUs that are worth the cost to upgrade. If tech kind of slows down, games don't work their way up to using multiple cores, DDR5 isn't a good perf increase, etc, then people will have less and less of an incentive to upgrade. Zen 2 is tempting to me purely because I'm a hardware enthusiast, same reason X79 and a host of other platforms are. But from a performance and cost/benefit standpoint, I have no need for an upgrade in a good long while. I think a lot of people who got X299 are just quiet working people and they'll want a practical and beneficial upgrade. The ones who talk all the time about X299 are often enthusiasts who will always be chasing that next piece of hardware purely for the sake of messing with it. If there aren't enough people upgrading, the market won't really get saturated to the point that prices go down. For X99, X79, and X58, motherboards demand a higher price because of lack of supply, but due to the massive amount of Xeons sold for those sockets, CPUs are often cheap because any large business upgrading sends a flood of CPUs to the market.

Oof, I think some earlier X99 boards had issues. If Intel accepts your RMA and you can get a good mobo that should be awesome, though the 6000 series doesn't OC as well as the 5000 ones.

Like I said, it was paired with an ASUS X99 Deluxe II motherboard.

Mobo is back in the box since, but it's still in mint condition, and works.

I don't think you can go any higher without stepping into ROG / Aorus product range...plus, the white + metallic colour scheme is quite nice/clean.

(The current trend with the carbon-black + RGB is too...dark for me personally)

 

Yeah, 6000 series doesn't overclock as well at the 5000 series.

Oh, I'd assumed you'd want a replacement, if you suspect your mobo killed your CPU why would you want to put another one in it? 

 

It is defo very nice looking. I had an ASUS Prime Z370-A (the 1st gen one), it looked very similar, matched really well with my NH-D15S and EVGA 1080 SCs. My current mobo is the EVGA X99 Classified, it's just a plain black/grey board with red X99/Classy logos and then red and white lights for the various mobo indicators and such.

Thanks! The color scheme is pretty damn on point, and Ek-ZMT tubing is just clean af. Needs a few finishing touches to be a bit cleaner, but it does look really nice. Happy the mobo isn't one of the new bright ones or the older Classy's (my X58 ones are red/black, this only has the red EVGA logo on the one heatsink). It does have the aluminum swoopy heatsink though, instead of the proper finned ones. But according to HWmonitor the VRMs aren't hitting over 75C so they should be fine. Can throw a 40mm Noctua on them at some point, but that'd mess with my color scheme.

Migrated to the Define R5 today, wanted something a little bit more dust-proof than the modded G5.

Next step, something you rarely see anymore. Triple Channel, x2, 384GB. Before that though the servers getting a different kind of upgrade. I think I shared photos of it already. There's no place to put 3.5" storage. I need to offload about 4TB of video footage from the SSD pool to a more longer term archival storage. So, I'm going to build a DAS.

 

You have people with USB3 external storage, you have USB3.1 external storage, heck you even have USB Type C external storage. Forget all of those, what you need to do is get yourself one of these:

IMAG0542.thumb.jpg.93ccb15edee1295f134b4515f808a954.jpg

Mini-SAS SFF-8088. Branded capable of 3GB/s (24Gbit) but I'm convinced she may be capable of 6GB/s (48Gbit). This will make a great expansion to the C612 server. I have the DAS itself, I had the SFF-8087 to SFF-8088 adapter. All that's missing is the SAS expander which will break the 3GB/s|6GB/s bandwidth into 32 individual SAS/SATA port. Each will be limited to about <100MB/s but as you create larger and larger pools and RAID them together you achieve extremely dense storage at very high speeds.

Honestly, one of those bad boys would probably be nicer than a NAS.
