  1. Temps closer to that range were just related to those being the upper temps on my Phenom II x4 965 BE at a 3.8 OC using the Iceblade 200M. I know it is different architecture and that the Ryzen cpus are still safe at 90-95C. But since the Iceblade 200M maintains a 65-74 when gaming at 3.9/4.0 Just wanted to aim for temps that were 10-15C lower on air cooling if possible. I just can't really find much info on how well the Lucifer K2 is working on current cpus. Just don't want to waste my very limited funds on a product that gets a very marginal increase in performance. Hadn't bother
  2. I was thinking it would work better than the Iceblade 200m but just not sure how close to the 50-55 cel range it would maintain with the 1600x if anyone has used it with the first gen Ryzen X 95 watt series. Wanting to move the Iceblade back to the Phenom II x4 965 black edition system that is setup as a spare/guest/future streaming 2nd system.
  3. Is the Lucifer K2 a decent enough cooler for a 4.1-4.2ghz overclock on the Ryzen 5 1600X? I am currently using the Deepcool Iceblade 200M but it is a bit warm for my personal tastes at 74-78 Cel under load at 3.9ghz. (82 Cel @ 4.1/4.2gzh) When left stock it is generally sitting between 65 and 74 when gaming. I know those temps are still still in the thermal limits but would rather get it running cooler so that when summer comes around I don't have to down clock my OCs on hot days. I am sticking to Air cooling as my pc is almost always on and would rather not have to deal with a p
  4. Reason for the 6TB size is that with the 1TB and 1.5TB drives that I am replacing are being consolidated to a single games drive and with my very slow internet speed downloading a game every few months when I want to play it again isn't worth eating up all my internet speed for a day an not being able to do anything else on the net. As an example when I downloaded Fallout 4 I had to set the speed at 256 kb/s just so that I could watch netflix and it took me almost 2 full days to download the game even with removing the limit when I went to bed. So I do not uninstall games that I a
  5. I had a Phenom II 965 Black Edition system that had the Radeon HD6870 1GB and 8GB of DDR3 1333 memory during the Destiny 2 beta and just by adding another 4GB of Ram and replacing the 6870 with an RX-480 4GB I improved the system enough to run the game on High settings until I got Ryzen 5 1600X and 16GB of DDR4 2666 memory. Can't remember what I was getting fps wise with the 6870 but the settings were left at default settings for the game and ran smoothly. The main thing to look at upgrading is the Video card I think but not sure you can manage a decent enough upgrade for $70. May
  6. I currently have 1.5TB Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM ST31500341AS for my general games drive and a 1TB Wester Digital Red 5400 RPM WD10EFRX drive for my steam collection. I am looking at consolidating them to a single 6TB drive. The 2 drives I was debating between are the Seagate IronWolf ST6000VN0033 6TB 7200 RPM 256MB Cache or the Seagate BarraCuda ST6000DM003 6TB 5400 RPM 256MB Cache. The 6 TB Barracuda Pro is out of my budget range, The 2 I am debating between are around the $220-$240 CAD range currently for new drives. My drives it is to replace are almost full and beginning to s
  7. The ASUS Tuf B350M Plus is said to be $69 in the video, but when you go to Newegg.com and the Linus Tech Tips sale and the product page on Newegg.com it just comes up as $98.99 still. One of my friends in the US went to order it after seeing the video and couldn't see the stated sale price of $69 for the motherboard. Some of the other items like the Vega 56 are showing as sold out so the sale price should be in effect already but not sure how to get it to come up as the $69 USD price for him.
  8. Been trying to figure out how to get the ASUS Tuf B350M for $69. Can't seem to find a way to have it show up at that price for a friend in the US who is looking at building a Ryzen machine soon. It only keeps listing the $98.99 price. We will keep watching the price on it over the week and see if it shows up as $69 on Friday and over the weekend. Wish I could get it at close to the $70 CAD price here in Canada on newegg.ca so that I could get my Ryzen machine up and running faster.
  9. I am going to be using my old Thermaltake Armor A60 mid tower case. ( Can see specs here http://www.thermaltake.com/products-model.aspx?id=c_00001644 ) Using the following components ASUS ROG STRIX or Prime B350 ATX motherboard Ryzen 5 1600 (aiming to run around the 3.9 to 4 ghz speed) ASUS Dual layer SATA DVD burner, 5x 3.5" SATA HDDS, ASUS Radeon RX 480 Dual 4GB OC SPI 600 watt PSU Want to keep the 200mm Exhaust fan on the top So was thinking of doing a 120mm Radiator on the back and possibly one on either the bottom or "in front of the 200 behi
  10. K thanks for the input on the cpu everyone. Will look at getting the 1600 instead.
  11. Yeah was Yeah it is the one from with my Phenom II x4 965 BE that is cooling the 965 oced @3.7 GHz currently maintaining decent temps during my gaming currently. The Goal on teh CPU choice is to try to prevent having to upgrade the CPU for at least 5 years.
  12. I was curious if anyone has tried using the stock cooler from a Phenom II x4 965 BE on the 1600x. I am looking at getting the 1600x, ASUS ROG STRIX B350-F motherboard, and Mushkin Silverline 16 GB DDR4 kit around the end of November and hen getting the EK Fluid Gaming A120 kit in January (finances permiting). Planning on keeping Stock settings on the 1600X until I can afford the A120 kit then will be overclocking it as it will probably be another 5 to 7 years before I can afford to replace the CPU again. Been using the Phenom II x4 965 BE @3.7GHz, ASUS M4A87TD Evo, Mush
