I keep my most played game on my SSD and my most used programs. The rest I put on a disk drive. I’ll upgrade at some point :)

Nice, 500gb of solid state is too much for me, but more can never hurt.

I really like your build, if probably build ssomthing similar

  • I bought my 16gbs of DDR4 2666 for £70.00 - so got a great deal there

  • But I bought an i3 6100 for £120.00 - which is now a terrible choice for the money

Just shows how things change!

The RAM costs more than the CPU, crazy times.

Great build though, can’t belive how cheap that cpu is

Yes easily. It turbos to 4.ghz and has 6 cores, so wont hold it back at all

Awesome build. I can't believe how expensive ram and GPU's are at the moment, but this build still makes sense.

I'm glad you added an ssd, they make a huge difference. The gpu is good for 1080p i used to have one. Also that cpu is great, so good for the price.

Make sure you get a good monitor and this build will be perfect

The 8700 turbo boost all 12 threads to 4.6ghz.

It's an absolute monster for a locked cpu. I hope you have a good monitor and desk! +1

Yeh crazy amount of non gaming power, pus smoother gameplay. Also you have faster ram and nvme support. So not a bad move!

Hopefully you got a good price for the old MOBO and RAM

I do like the case, and it is a good mixture of parts

Wow nice, I'm sure this build will do great at all of those.

And yes I completely agree, it's much better to be cpu limited. The 1600 should be very good for a long time, so you can just add a new gpu

Damn bro, really nice build.

You got those parts for a really good price. The only thing I feel was a waste was the cooler.

A hyper 212 would cool an over locked 1700 easily. Apart from that superb

Ah cool, well the i5 8400 is still a pretty sizable upgrade (6 cores and a boost of 4.0ghz). That would be less expensive and a more worthwhile upgrade to an old i5

I really don't think your old i5 needed upgrading. You could've just put a 1060 6gb and it would run everything really well.

As you say it's nice to be on the new platform that has better chips, but you get really very little benifit at the moment

Well your new CPU bulldozes the bulldozer hahah. Honestly the 1700 is better in every possible way, and by quite a way. My friend has just moved from an fx 8350 to a r5 1600.

He does art/ makes websites and gaming and he says its been a massive improvement. His FX chip stuttered for no reason and wasnt even overclocked. Great time to upgrade. Also fast ram helps too

Awesome build, the cpu is the biggest change really. It's not like your old cpu was bad, but bulldozer was SO hot and power hungry. Also there were stability issues.

The 1700x has none of these problems and is so much more powerful (around 2.5 times more that the 9590) Also the 1060 must be nice, a big step up in everyday to the 960.

It's a great card, but he games on monitors that are 1080p 60fps so a more powerful graphics card would make no different as the 1060 can already max these out

Comment reply on raininseattle's Completed Build: Heart of the Expedit

And to answer your question, if it was just for gaming probably a ryzen 1400 or 1600 and overclock to 3.9ghz (no bottleneck on any GPU 1060 or below, and hugely powerful at multithreaded stuff at a low price).

Gtx 1080 & 1080ti I would go for you your chip (8600k) or the i7 8700k. The 1070 it would depend on my budget. I hope this makes senses!

Comment reply on raininseattle's Completed Build: Heart of the Expedit

For just gaming any modern quad core at around 4ghz will get the max out of the cpu.

So an i3 8100 or Ryzen 1300x would do fine. The i5 8600k can handle a titan X when overclocked with basically no GPU bottleneck.

That said it's not a bad thing have a cpu as powerful as yours, also the rest of the PC is just as high end. And as you say the 1060 isn't as powerful as the rest of the components, but you play in 1080p 60fps, so this isn't a problem.

To be honest in gaming the 8600k is crazy overkill for the 1060, even at stock.

The only thing I'd get annoyed at is the sound, but I assume this is pretty quiet. The nvme is a much nice addition in my opinion

Comment reply on raininseattle's Completed Build: Heart of the Expedit

That should be fine. I think 4.8ghz is the perfect speed for this case.

This thing has no compromises really, should be crazy fast at productivity. I hope you enjoy!

When you start the PC enter the bios, this is where you OC the cpu. Most motherboards especially high end ones will have an automatic OC tool which should get you to 4.8-5.0ghz depending on your cooler.

To get a slightly higher OC you can manually overclock by doing tests, and minor tweaks

Nice build, I really like your desk. The only thing i wouldve said is that the CPU is crazy powerful for this build.

Btw to save on space there are power supplies that are smaller "SFX power supplies". These are much smaller (corsair make a good one) and tend to work better on the ITX cases that still accept full sized PSU's like yours.

How are your CPU temps? Did you OC it?

Well tbh both options are great, the 1400 isn't a huge upgrade on an OC'ed 1400 especially in gaming. But both options are great tbh

Comment reply on bacongravy's Completed Build: Great Intel Gaming Cube - MSI Edition

Yeh it's quite confusing to be honest. Intel have named their 4 core 4 thread desktops chips "i5" for the last 7+ years.

The i5's as of the last few months are 6 cores and the i3s are now 4 cores (making them virtually identical to last gen i5's). This was a response to AMD releasing new cups recently. To be honest the i5 7500 is a great cpu, and is still much more powerful than the typical processor.
