if your i7 is decently overclocked, the upgrade to a 9400F is not that large. An 11th gen i5 with a B560 motherboard is a larger improvement to performance, or an inexpensive B450 motherboard with a cheap used Ryzen 5 3600 (if you manage to find one).

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.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - 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 moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

profitable upgrade??

Unless youre upgrading from a 3080 to 4080 or something, i dont think there's a lot of "profitable" upgrades.


Anyway, jokes aside: i have to agree on this. You lose 2 threads for few gains in IPC. If you need a CPU upgrade, go for something like an i5 11400F, with H510 or B560 board. If you dont mind team red, a B450 board with 3600 will suit you. Do be noted that BOTH will require new DDR4 memory to function, and youll want a fast one for Ryzen. You can get away with slower DDR4 memory for Intel, but its still encouraged.

I don't work at Dell, i just love semi formal English.

Not really worth it. Won’t be a huge performance upgrade, you lose 2 threads, and it’s on a dead platform. A 11400f with a decent B560 board seems like the better option, if you can find a good deal on a Ryzen 5 3600 (less than $180) then that + a cheap B450 board would be another good deal.
