From my last i9 ES post I mentioned other cheap CPU's albeit they werent this one I still wanted to mention it. Its a tray version (??) of the ryzen 1700 and doesnt come with heatsinks or fancy boxes, just a small black box with the cpu and the sticker. Found it on taobao for around 100 dollars US and was immedietly intruiged by the thing. It performs the same, is new and is cheap, as far as i see the reviews arent fake and I just bought one for myself to use in a future build, whats everyones opinion on this? I havent found any other 1700 or ryzen bulk order cpu's before so this is a first for me.

What would you  be doing? The r3 3100 is like 115usd rn, and comes with a good cooler, tray ones dont. The 3100 is better than the 1700 for most games, but is worse in encoding.

I am still TechWizardThatNeedsHelp, just less of a mouthfull.

Yes,  1700 PRO. For OEM / Server, so it doesn't come with heatsinks.

Pretty good deal if you want 8 cores.

For gaming go with a faster 4 cores.

3100 is a MUCH better option for gaming, but if you are doing a multi-threaded task, gotta get that *Bargain* dude

YES, I RUN RAID 1 OVER RAID 0

I mostly do CAD with fusion and solidworks and I do some editing and rendering so I picked it, better deal for me. I was originally going to go with either a tenth gen i5, 17 or a ryzen 5 3500x, ryzen 5 1600 AF. I ended up going with the 1700 purely because a. Its cheaper, b. Its better for my use case.

For $100 it's totally a bargain.

Yeah and multiple sellers have it at the exact same price as well. Weird but if it works it works

Probably all it's worth. It's really not an impressive Cpu looking at what is released after it. Certainly wouldn't pass it up, but in a month it might only be 80$.... *shrugs*

I agree, its a pretty nice deal right now especially when I can spend a bit more to get a more reliable and efficent powersupply and a better ssd

Yes, I know. Budget building is fun and challenging XD

 

But if you're gaming with this rig, it might had been wiser to upgrade the video card and overclock the Engineering Sample Intel chip. Generally the E samples are multiplier and voltage unlocked entirely. What was the i9 part number? Most Intel chips all the way back to say an E8500 where good for 4.5ghz - 5.0ghz.

Ill take a look at the part numbers for the ES chips, I got a rog strix 980, I dont game that much and all I want is smooth frames no matter what setting. Part numbers are: QTB0 10900t, QTB1 10900, QTB2 10900k

I have the exact same card.... in a box. It wasn't cutting it anymore.

Not enough VRam for a lot of todays games. So I use a 2060 instead (well, my kids do HTPC)

 

10900 ES chip? AND YOU BOUGHT A FREAKING AMD 1700??? 

 

I'm sorry for that. kinda shocking. ....
