But can it run Minecraft with RTX on?

moar coars = moar raytracing.

So must be able to run it :ph34r:

I am still baffled by the dual socket boards these Chinese manufacturers are able to create on X79.. Let alone just X79 on its own!!

Well now I have to watch the video so I can figure out if that was a spelling mistake or intentional.  Thanks a lot @nicklmg.

Forget the xeons, just buy my 1950X instead, no for real I want to get into 240hz gaming now...

 


I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Reminds me of the budget 8(2x4) core gaming rig y'all did a few years back, just a bit more modern.

I guess the chipset doesn't really give a damn as it only has one CPU connected to it. It's probably up to the BIOS/UEFI to enable the QPI link and sort out setting up the dual CPU configuration and reporting that to the OS.


Probably banned for disagreeing

Buy Intel Xeon processors on Amazon (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/1HEe6Ts

 

Get this motherboard on Aliexpress: https://geni.us/Gc9PU

 

Buy Noctua NH-U12s on Amazon (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/9arXgs

This has nothing to do with the video, but can someone tell me how they got an RTX 2060 super, an msi b45o-A PRO motherboard, and a ryzen 7 3800X in a build for less then 900 dollars?!

in the video time stamp: 0:22

I'd much rather get the newer hardware with warranties...

Not to mention better efficiency, better instructions per clock, less overhead from dual sockets, etc. I'm a determined bargain hunter and once you start tallying up the costs of it all the good deal isn't so good in the end, I've priced this stuff out before and the value/performance ratio doesn't add up.

Truth.

Though I can't speak for value to performance ratios. All of my builds have made me money, not cost me money 🤷‍♂️

Did they ever verify it's actually quad channel not dual channel memory or was this just assumed?

Watching out for dual-channel boards is something inherent to this kind of Aliexpress-based building. The higher spec Jingsha and Huananzhi boards are quad, but the lower spec ones are hit and miss.

 

Typed from my Huananzhi X79-ZD3, 32 GB DDR3-1866, E5 1650 V2, RX 470D box built for $440.

Could you guys put product names in the title, like you said you were going to?

I've noticed this recently, and it's kind of annoying, because I'm not going to watch a video that I have absolutely no context for...
You may as well not have a title

"Backing Up Your Life is THIS Easy"
"Where Intel is in REAL Trouble..."
"My old PC was making me nauseous... Time to upgrade"

"This Chinese Water Cooler is WAY Better Than I Thought!"
"I was WRONG about the iPhone 11 Pro Camera..." - This title is honestly OK, but you talk specifically about the iPhone's Deep Fusion feature, and compare it between many Andriod phones

You used an R5 3600 in your $900 Ryzen gaming value build, not an R7 3800X, right? Seems that you got that confused.

You are in a different category for which this video isn't intended for then. However for the costs mentioned (Linus never really stated the actual total cost of the server build) I wouldn't go to Ali anything, instead go on ebay and buy a actual server setup Like this:
https://www.ebay.ca/itm/HP-ProLiant-DL380p-G8-2x-Intel-Xeon-E5-26xx-10-core-64GB-up-to-768GB-RAM/323560797119?hash=item4b55b9f3bf:m:m6PNSoc3cp-eUA4iODLwc5g

 

I'm sure one could find other places or better prices esp w/o the U rack to save shipping etc (ebay seller might remove the U rack for you). My used server came in a fully functional setup tested before it left, best way imo of buying used server stuff might be more expensive but removes the risk.

 

However for price esp right now I would buy discounted last gen Ryzen processors over this.

True story, video thumbnail and title made me think for a second: Did I buy too early, should I have waited?

Never noticed the dual cpu fans else I would have known immediately what he was doing.

Even though the Xeon configuration might not be the best for gaming would this make more sense for an unRaid setup?

No.

This kind of setup is power hungry and doesn't sleep under Windows. Most folks, me included, cannot work the incantations required to get such a board to sleep under linux.

Not really, I'm pretty much exactly in that category; they even mention used parts in their video. Simply put, there's no point to building a system with old, potentially unreliable parts when it costs the same and performs basically the same as a new system.

For real it seems that Linus's promise of being less click baitey lasted all of a month or so. I feel dirty every time I click one of those video links. They were much better when they had the product or topic in the title, along with the headline

I'm already playing with a single CPU Chinese X79 board, and this video got me thinking if this dual socket board could be used to build a homelab server on the cheap. VMware with ESXi, in a standard ATX (well E-ATX) form factor tower that can take standard components.

 

I'm assuming the BIOS on these boards is basically the same as a board built by a more well known manufacturer?
