I want to do some slight overclocking 

 

price per performance of motherboard 

 

is motherboard worth the price or just overpriced?

I'd suggest selling the cpu and ddr3 memory and go with a ryzen cpu.

but if you are stuck on this, i'd go with cheapest which is probably the gigabyte model.

Not a single high end FX motherboard is worth it, unless you are a die hard classic AMD enthusiast. Getting a cheap Ryzen system with a B450 motherboard and a first gen ryzen CPU will not only have more performance but is probably cheaper, even in the Philippines.

M.2 SSDs will provide no real benefit to you. Sure they are small and convenient, but NVMe speeds are useless to gamers and SATA M.2 drives are equal to 2.5" SATA drives.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I kinda want to go ryzen 3300X with b450 

but I'm sure retailers here will double the price of the cpu because it's new

 

so yeah I'm kinda stuck because of the retailers

I just want to have m.2 for future upgrade because I'll build a sandwich type small form factor pc with r3 3300X on b450i or b550 if they have mini-itx

 

when price of cpu calms down in here
