    Makes sense. They'll probably use HBM only on high end GPUs due to higher production cost.

    GloriousPain got a reaction from Nacho Marco Segui in MicroATX with maybe dual OS?   
    His thought process was probably more cores for rendering out images and such as well as hyperthreading, tbh at the moment the 5820k is Intel's Golden chip, Price to performance ratios at an all time high considering it's lowered price and 6700k is soo expensive... Honestly in my opinion OP just go with your original specs but switch the i5 to a Xeon 1231v3 (it's basically a 4790 without an iGPU for the price of an i5) and grab a 2x8 16GB kit of ram, call it a day,

    GloriousPain reacted to Fate in [US Newegg] Sapphire R9 290 (reference-type cooler) $239.99   
    All 290s put out roughly the same amount of heat into your room/case under full load. If you water cooled it, it would still put out the same amount of heat. 
     
    That said, you shouldn't get a reference R9 290 unless you plan to water cool it because it may throttle and is very loud.

    GloriousPain got a reaction from sommde5 in Good $2000 Gaming build? Monitor?   
    At the moment there's so many great monitors it's really personal preference it's not like when ROG swift first came out and it was the singular monitor to beat... Now there's actually competition, you'll probably be happy with any of them, I think my vote would be the Acer XB270HU but I personally play competitive mobas and fpses such as LoL and CSGO commonly and video edit, which I don't like curves for...  Maybe wait on that 165hz monitor asus has coming out soon?

    GloriousPain reacted to GlassBomb in Good $2000 Gaming build? Monitor?   
    The problems with getting a new monitor right now is that there are so many great new ones. And the technology is for once actually advancing.
     
    I'm personally using two 27" 1440p panels. They take up a massive amount of real estate on my desk and all that. But the actual resolution of them is really nice. I would probably suggest something of the same size, a 27 inch, 1440p monitor. 4k technology is still not mature enough for me to jump on that boat just yet.
     
    That 21:9 monitor would also be a great choice if think that you will stick with just one monitor for a long time. And it has the same pixel density as 27 inch, 2560x1440 panels.

    If you really want to get yourself a custom loop, then look into a thick radiator. And something like this for a pump.

    The only problem I have with the Corsair 900D, is well. It's just way too big. And is only really suited if you want a system loaded to the brim with everything imaginable. My brother has the same case as well. He likes it because of its size and potential. But welp, that's just some of my personal issues that I have with the 900D.

    GloriousPain reacted to Decon in [WCCF] ASUS Radeon R9 Nano "White Edition" Spotted

    The first non-refernce R9 Fury may have just been leaked:
     
     
    Custom PCB?  That should be interesting.  I wonder how the Fury Nano cooler will handle overclocking with presumably better VRMs...
     
     
    Apparently the card remains at stock clock speeds out of the box, despite the "custom PCB" 
     
     
     
    Pictures:
     
    Hope this card leads the way for a potential non-refernce Fury X...  The high-end overclocking AMD market has really been lacking as board partners have so far not received approval on releasing non-reference versions of Fiji parts.  Fury X lightning anyone?  Maybe unlocked memory and a good VRM solution would lead to a true "TITAN killer" Fury X as AMD was hoping.
     
    Also ASUS ARES IV with dual air-cooled fury nano needs to be a thing

    How much video rendering, if a lot or a decent amout go x99 as the gaming difference is small while the render difference is large, also 5820k is a better buy.

    Don't get the 5930k. Get the 5820k. It's better for the money and still good for gaming. If you're gaming in 4k, I'd get at least a 980ti.

    GloriousPain reacted to Boink in $4000 Home Game Server - I don't know how to server   
    Servers don't require GPUs beyond providing a display output as their tasks are CPU based. Dump the 980ti and the 1600W power supply for anything that can provide a display output and a ~500W PSU.

    GloriousPain reacted to SaperPL in Intel to pull support of desktop chipsets on upcoming Xeon E3 CPU's   
    I think I may have the explanation of all this.
     
    Xeon E3's ain't necessarily better for overclocking. They are locked and not all of them are low powered ones. Intel usually releases low powered T versions of i7's as well.
     
    For the ones who didn't catch the idea of having Xeon E3 in their home pc - it's not about overclocking but the price. Most of E3's have models with and without integrated gpu while you can't freely choose a core unit without igp.
     
    Those without the igp were fairly cheaper than sligthly faster/higher clocked i7's in the saindy bridge/ivy bridge era. I actually bought E3-1230v2 $100 cheaper than i7-3700 at that time and it run without problems on cheap itx board.
     
    Because manufacturers were making workarounds to support Xeons in their consumer grade motherboards intel started closing the price gap between E3 and i7 on haswell to finally lock it out in latest architecture. They probably caught the problem too late for haswell to prevent the workarounds in its familiy.
     
    So what's the reason of that? I think the price difference is not the main reason for intel here but the igp. If any of you noticed: from sandy bridge intel has been basically pushing their igp in every consumer grade cpu and I don't really think most of people use those at all.
     
    Essentially it's the intel igp market share and that probably affects their stock prices. If they push igp into every cpu, then for let's say market share of 80% they get roughly counting 40% of gpu market share if every computer has a dedicated one as well.
     
    I wouldn't see any problem with that if intel gpu's weren't literally useless and misplaced in the families - If you buy an i7 you get most powerful igp even with edram (broadwell i5/i7) but when you buy something cheaper you get crap igp that only works well for old games and browsing. I'd like to have a choice of picking cheap dual core pentium processor that has the most powerful igp in the family and pay like for i3 or to buy i5 and i7 without the igp. That actually would've make sense for me. This gets even worse for laptops where it should be worth picking better cpu without the dedicated graphics but then again manufacturers are making those units always with a dedicated gpu, even slow ones that are hardly faster than iris pro.
     
    What do you think guys? I hope that Linus will pick this up on next WAN show. it's such a load of crap.

    GloriousPain reacted to Sauron in Intel to pull support of desktop chipsets on upcoming Xeon E3 CPU's   
    Oh, COME ON! You really aren't fun anymore, intel! So what if I don't care about those fancy integrated graphics that I'll never use? I probably shouldn't be talking because I have an i7, but aside from the fact I might have bought a xeon in the future (if and when they give us the damned 6-core cpus we should have had on the consumer platform since 2013) there are plenty of people who want the cpu performance and none of the oc and igpu and don't have as much cash to spend.
