  1. Hi Sintezza.  I'm older and out of the market for a long time.  I've read some of your opinions and like your criteria for choosing components: quality / stability and performance (no "bling", ugly is just fine).  I'd like to build a tower (full ATX) to handle high-end video production (no gaming).  Might you have recommendations for me for a great combination of 1) MoBo, 2) CPU and 3) GPU?  I see you haven't visited the site for awhile, hope you get this.


    Anyone else with experience who reads this and would like to offer an opinion, welcome also!  Thanks, George

      Your best bet is to make a new post about it because this person isn't active anymore.




      Just tell them your use case and your budget and they'll help you out pretty quickly.

      RIP Sintezza ? 


      (But yeah, New Build and Planning is best)

      Is that Glenn Greenwald?

  2. Asrock X99 Taichi. Very decent board with a very good feuture set. And also pretty reliable. Pretty much from 2014 till now Asrock X99 boards seem to have been the least troublesome of them all. Msi X99 boards aren't really that great either tbh..
  3. If they want to do cpu performance compairisson tests in gaming. Why are they doing those tests in 4K then? I know that a Titan XP is concidered being a 4K card. But yeah, if they did these tests at lower resolutions like 1440p or 1080p. Then it would give us a better image of the relative cpu performance in this particular game. AOTS is still pretty core clock speed demending, unless i missed something?
  4. Lol and there are still people that defend all this Microsoft sheninigans bullshit.
  5. Yeah Skype is pretty crap. Thats one of the reasons why i still use WLM regardless. But interesting to see what this is exally going to mean for my workarround to get wlm working. Fingers crossed lol
  6. Well the memory vrm is sepperate basicly. Its most likely 4 phases doubled to 8 for main v core, on those particular boards.
  7. The Z270 chipset provides 20 / 24 lanes, which are connected to the cpu over a dmi3.0 4x interface.
  8. 10 phase power design hmm interesting. I'm currious to what AMD exally mean by that. Because there are no true 10 phase pwm´s used on modern boards today. But i suppose this will mean 4 phases doubled to 8 for main vcore.
  9. Cool. I have to say that i´m personally not really blown away by the specs of the am4 chipsets in general. However i can´t wait to take a closer look to these new boards, and doin some vrm circuitry analytics on them. I´m pretty much more interested in that. The feutures of the am4 platform in general arent really that innovative.
  10. Well basiclly X99 isnt really better for pure gaming atm. Unless you go crazy on triple gpu setups. There might be a very few games that might run better on a 6800K. But in most of the gaming benchmarks arround the board the 7700K will be at the top of the list. I personally think that the time that we really gonne see a benefit in having a cpu with more the 4 core + HT in gaming is still a pretty long way ahead on us. But in the future maybe. X99 is definitelly not a bad choice what so ever. But its just unessesary for gaming. And a
  11. I have not really seen that much in most DX12 and Vulkan benchmarks untill now. So unless i did miss something?
  12. And why would that be better for gaming specificly? Because i personally think that X99 is unessesary for gaming.
  13. For mainly gaming i would go with Kabylake 7700K. They have a higher overclock potential. And overall they are the better chips for gaming usually.
