pleb here, I've been meaning to ask you guys, is it right for my ram to be clocked at 799MHz?

I'm pretty sure these were advertised as higher when I built this pc long ago, 1600 maybe, why are some clocked higher like these >>54719552
and others lower like these >>54722295
is it a configuration issue, or is it intended?

I had two 2TB drives die on me this year :(

>> No.54723925

DDR stands for double data rate. You double the number shown in Speccy to get the actual speed of your memory. So your sticks are running at the rated 1600MHz, whereas >>54719592 for instance is DDR4 3333MHz.

>> No.54723930

That sucks, i haven't had a drive die on me in years. My old drives I copy the data from them and then put them in my closet (so it's sorta like a backup I don't update). That way if a drive dies in just bring back the drive (or drives) the data originally came from.

Of course new data i would lose out on, but the majority of my media that is new is being put on my newest drives, so not a huge concern. And I also have an online backup using crashplan, it's slow for the initial upload, but it's cheap and it works.

Probably going to go 1080 this time. I realize the Ti card will be better in every measureable way, but if I can get a 1080 to run at 60fps on max settings at 1080p ill be happy. The 760 4gb is a great card for what I paid, but in some situations it does show its age, specifically with heavy light effects. Doubling the memory is probably the biggest thing im looking at.

People will say im shilling but I haven't had a Radeon card since the 4000 series and even then, id buy an XFX if I were to. EVGA has been good to me.

encoding times. My i5 is great for gaming but really lags when trying to encode videos. I have many Blu-ray rips that get up to around 50gb and even with my i5 overclocked, encodes take up to 1 hour and 15 minutes. This is for a single video and I do up to 5 videos at a shot. That's almost 7 hours of leaving my my main PC locked at 100% usage unable to do anything else. With moar coars I would be able to open my encoding software in a VM, set 4-6 cores for encoding, and use the rest for other stuff.

Not to mention newer standards. USB 3.1 ports/USB C. More pcie lanes so I can run nvme SSDs at fully capability.

no.You'd be buying into an old chip, older standard, and on the chance the motherboard just dies, you're fucked.

A 4790k could be had for $250 and Z97 board for $120. More money? Yes.

figured this thread would be good for this.

So this is my first build. I have always been that guy spending over $1k on laptops/ultrabooks and never owned a desktop. Figured today was the day.

I am trying to keep it under $1200 with the 970. I know I can just remove the astros, but I am in need of good headphones and I also game on ps4 and having the ability to listen to pc and ps4 at the same time is a plus.

Thoughts? advice?

>> No.54738016

Buy real headphones for 1/2 the cost and enjoy much better headphones.

Also, dont buy Windows 10, especially if you're building in the next few weeks. Just buy W7 or W8 off reddit (should cost $20-30) then use the free upgrade to W10.

I did it 3 days ago with my gfs new desktop, saved me $70 from buying W10.

>may is the last month one can upgrade to windows 10.

like i fucking said, if you're building in the next month, you're fine.

Any headphones can do what the astros do if you're not retarded, they just have a built in DAC.

Buy a USB DAC if you want.

Honestly i'd recommend doing a LOT more research on audio before spending $200 on shitty gaymer headphones, they're legit ~$50 headphones, if that.

if you have microcenter nearby you could probably save a bit more.

Also if you're getting a B150 board you can't overclock so its kinda wasted money getting the "K" cpu, since the "K" CPUs are meant for overclocking.

Do you have a Microcenter near you? I think they offer the $30 off on all their mobos, when I built my 3770k pc for some reason there was an extra $100 discount on my receipt, I assume it was another combo discount but I didn't ask for fear they would remove it.

Their combo deals are cheaper but you have to pay tax

>> No.54739130

If you have microcenter look at the 5xxx or the 4xxx series as they will be significantly cheaper than online prices.

Skylake however because it's newer is only gonna be like $20-30 cheaper than online (meaning the tax you pay will probably be more than your savings)

For about $60 more you can step into socket 2011 and a 5820k. Also you can get a Xeon down the road for that future upgradeability. Skip the Xion case as well, I built my first PC in one and it was cool to look at but that was before I knew about cable management. Look at the Corsair 200r or 300r.

the 5820k is a 6700k with 2 more cores, double the L3 cache and slightly more power hungry.

As long as what you're doing can utilize the extra cores and cache, the 5820k is far superior to the 6700k.

At stock the 9590 is a 220w power draw, so I figured it would be more than 200w by default.

I personally can't recommend anyone purchase an AMD chipset right now, AM3 and the 900 series chipsets are 3-4 years old at this point, they dont even have PCIe 3.0 or USB 3.0 native support. And they only support a handful of SATA 3 lanes, you need add on chips for more, same with USB.

Not to mention all future AMD CPUs will be on socket AM4, so there is literally no upgrade path available.

dual Xeons both overclocked to i5 speeds is not bad for gaming and it will only get better when multithreaded games become the norm, of course this will not beat an i7 with 4 cores at current games, but it will destroy that the i7 at some of the new ones and you save about $500.

The only LITERAL difference between the 5820k and 5930k (besides the $200 price increase and meaningless clockspeed bump) is the fact it has 40 PCIe lanes at your disposal compared to the 5820k which only has 28 PCIe lanes.

Now if you're unaware, PCIe lanes are really only useful for GPUs and other PCI cards (RAID cards or 10Gbps NICs, GPUs, etc) The simple fact you have a SINGLE GPU using up a whole 16 PCIe lanes (It would only lose 1-3% performance dropping to 8 PCIe lanes but that's besides the point here). Leaving you a whopping 32 unused PCIe lanes on that CPU.

So TLDR here is you spent extra money on a 5930k when it's getting you zero benefit over the 5820k which costs hundreds of dollars less. If you stole the 5930k or happen to have gotten as part of the Intel insiders program, congrats. But otherwise it was just money wasted.

Only get the 5930k if you're doing triple or quad GPU, or you have a stupidly large RAID array or similar. Single GPU or even Dual GPU will be fine on the 5820k and save you a good chunk of change.

>> No.54745257

oh you are sperging out on the price. i got mine for free. even if i didn't i would've gotten one from ebay anyways where it was only $40 more than the 5820k at the time because people were flooding it from retail edge.

>> No.54745268

Yeah like I said in the post, if you got it for near 5820k price it's fine.

Never knew speccy was so informative; I like.

Speedfan report is accurate tho.

Also, why does my 1.5tb show as 0?

>> No.54745418

They should make a Raptor SSD, it would just spin the SSD around so fast that it would probably create a vortex, if we were to use the theory of relativity who knows how this would increase or decrease performance or if it would create a black hole that sucks up all your trap pics.

what to upgrade?

>> No.54751224

CPU, dual cores are fine for desktop usage, but many games really are preferring at least 4 threads. And some games wont even run on dual core CPUs no matter the GPU.

>> No.54751252

which cpu would you suggest

>> No.54751299

a decent clocked i5 that fits your motherboard would be fine.

You just want at least 4 cores, preferably clocked over 3gthz.

I would have upgraded GPU to something like GTX 750 Ti.

the 750ti is at the same level or worse than the AMD 68xx series, so it'd be a pretty shit "upgrade'

So for HDDs I see it's mostly seagate or WD.
Are the new Seagate drives good?
A 2TB Seagate has the same price as the WD black.
Spec wise they are the same
