Ba dum tsss. That ram would work well.
The motherboard you picked doesn't support overclocking even though I'm guessing you want to.
If you do the Intel build, make sure you get 4 sticks of RAM since X79 motherboards run quad channel.
I agree since Devil's Canyon launches in June.
Yes it is enough, however I would personally get a 700W just for a little more headroom.
It is actually less performance. The 270 performs a tad bit better than the 750 ti.
I agree, the cables aren't actually that bad, they just appear to be messy.
Lol, I thought the same thing.
The FM2+ socket is likely to be used again by AMD while the AM3+ socket is being discontinued.
There is a reason why AMD is cheaper.
Did you even read the description?
Oh I know, I was just saying he is future proofing.
128 GB ssds are around 70-80 bucks now also.
I feel as if buying an asics would be cheaper.
He is probably going to add the GPUs to loop eventually is what I'm guessing.
Broadwell will most likely be mid 2014 at the earliest.
EDIT: Sorry I read the article I was reading wrong since it discussed several lines of processors. Haswell-E will come out this year and utilize DDR4 memory so no backwards compatibility with mobo. Broadwell will come out in 2015.
How can "almost the exact same" make me wrong. I'm only wrong if it is EXACTLY the same or worse.
That review uses BF4 which I'm pretty sure is optimized for AMD which makes it biased and therefore invalid.
They mainly just do some benchmarks to add to the system and then take it apart.
9370 is only as good as the 4670k if its using all eight cores. The single core performance of the 9370 is almost half that of the i5 so most games as of right now will not benefit.
Mine is a little higher because I was playing Planetside 2 when I did that test
I understand what you're saying with the load temp, my 4670k never gets hotter than 55C during gaming with a 212 EVO.
*EDIT Forgot to mention that its at 4.3 GHz.
I specifically mentioned Haswell because it gets hotter easier because of the terrible glue that Intel uses.
The 760 is the same price as the 660ti and it performs better.
No he should not use prime95 because it has a bug where it overvolts Haswell.
Here is good information about them. Some of the CX and CXM models have better voltage regulation than the RM.
Here is the 4930k version.
Oh I forgot to say earlier that the Corsair RM series have cheap parts in them. Please avoid them.
Also you forgot about peripherals and what not.
He posted his build and I'm guessing he prefers 144hz monitors over 4k. Also the R9295X2 is extremely overpriced. He has a budget of 3200, not 3400.
I will tell you now that the FX series is quite old architecture and that the AM3+ socket will most likely not be used again.
Which AMD cpu are you talking about, the 8350?
Don't forget about making sure you are grounded to the case. That is very important considering it only takes 10 volts to damage a component when the average static shock you can see is like 8000 volts.
People seem to have this issue with balance, price to performance wise. Say a person builds a work computer that uses over 4 threads so they get 4770k and occasionally game but only on light games like League of Legends so they get a 750ti, they will say that's unbalanced, they even say a 760 would still be unbalanced with the i7 even if the person doesn't need a higher end card.
Is your cpu cooler blowing air towards the front? I think it might be. Might want to put the fan on the other side.
I will never understand some of these people.
No the one yesterday was the pc with the Corsair case and he listed his ipads and what not.
The RM series has rather cheap components inside as well which kinda makes them overpriced for their actual quality.
Never trust the bios temp, mine is off by about 12 degrees.
The power connectors ARE at the end of the card, everything past them is the cooler. The pcb is rather short.
I can understand where you're coming from. I wanted the H100i but went with a Hyper 212 EVO so I could afford the 760 now. It sucks to have a strict budget.
For pretty much the same price of a 660 ti, you can get the 760 which performs better. Just thought I'd let you know since you mentioned the 660 ti.
I doubt its a bad mount. I'm thinking its more of the heat sensor being crap. Use RealTemp or CoreTemp to get pretty accurate readings.
No they are not because the way AMD puts the heat sensors is absolutely horrible. Same with Intel; my bios for my 4670k says that at idle its 40 degrees when in reality its actually 28.
He didn't actually state what he paid for it. That is just the price for it currently.
Not all builds on here are for gaming. It could be more of a workstation and games on the side. Also he could be waiting for Maxwell since people are suspecting May to be when its released due to a trend of Nvidia releasing releasing in May.
Except for the fact that he put the mobo on the antistatic bag which is a no no.
For being A+ certified, your cable management isn't very good. Might want to clean them up.
SLI* probably just a typo on your part
I'm guessing he means an optical drive, you know like a dvd drive.
