Save the $70 and get high speed Ram and OC that 2200G and you have performance on par or better then a 2400G.

2200G if all you want is an APU that can play vidya with the iGPU. 2400G if you're going to use the computer for things other than vidya and shitposting or if you're planning to get a decent GPU later. The extra CUs on 2400G don't really make a difference because it's bottlenecked by RAM bandwidth, but SMT is pretty significant benefit for CPU.

Technically the i7-3770 beats ryzen in single core performance. Although it might match it if you overclock it? I also believe if you get a kit of 2x8GB 3000 MHz ram it will improve speed.

It all depends on your usage case. Great for software (lets be real here, its for vidya) that has lots of actions - many of which you might want to do at the same time. It is why MMO's and RTS games benefit immensely from such bindings. Even a simple example might be an FPS game - binding weapon choices to your mouse keys instead of 1-9 can let you switch weapons faster without awkward finger positioning associated with a keyboard.

I personally don't have a mouse with extra buttons as they get in the way of my concrete crushing grip I have.

I picked this up on Wednesday, it's a great deal for a solid computer. The GPU and CPU alone cost nearly $900 right now, and you're getting a decent looking case, standard MB, 16GB ram and a 7200 1TB HDD on top of that.

I never buy pre-builts. The last one I bought was in the very early 2000s, since around 2006 I've been building my own PC every few years, but sadly this was the most economical solution right now for me to just get a better system / videocard over my aging FX 8350 / GTX 970 setup I had before.

That said, I had many problems getting this thing set up. Fair warning; DO NOT cancel the Windows update that starts automatically after turning it on for the first time. I learned that the hard way, had some real strange issues happen with Windows update and disk usage and had to do a clean install again just to get things working properly. The update takes several hours, just let it run.

Also, despite all that, I'm still having some strange as fuck disk usage 100% problems when I boot up every now and then, and I'm currently trying to figure out how to stop it.

The only con I really have is the GPU runs kind of hot, as it's a blower configuration. Running Deus Ex Mankind Divided at 1440p at maximum settings I'm getting decent FPS, around 50-60, but GPU temps soar to 80C+. CPU temps mostly go around 50C maximum under heavy load, idle around 30C.

Unless you particularly need every iota of performance from ram, ram is ram is ram at a given frequency give or take. CPUs are much more complex as frequency isn't a measurement of performance in the strictest sense (but frequency is related to performance).

A major hurdle for judging how good a cpu is is the socket it fits into - some sockets/chipsets offer more features than others and all of the fun that brings.

When I start up a game the mother board creates a massive, constant buzzing noise.
The buzz sound appears to be coming from the VRM modules to the left of the CPU.

I suspect it's the motherboard, but I can't rule out that it might be the graphics card (Vega 64), or the PSU (Silverstone ST75F-PT)

id say its pretty fair price if you need the threads for multitasking/vm/workstation stuff. hyperthreading isnt as good as AMD's SMT, but HT vs no HT is a pretty solid boost for multitasking.
could also be a good purchase for "futureproofing" for games. with intel now making 6 core mainstream, affordable CPUs, you can bet that we'll be seeing more and more multithreaded games.

It might not be your gpu. It could be the psu being pushed hard when the cpu and gpu are under load. Equally it might be the motherboard getting slammed by a cpu - though outside of thew shittiest of of boards it generally only occurs in overclocked cpus.

what kind of temperatures do you guys see on your GPU's VRMs?
im waiting to buy a 144hz monitor next month, so for now i "overclocked" my monitor from 60hz to 75hz. i tested and made sure it was actually displaying 75hz(and indeed its also noticable in games), but im noticing that my GPUs VRM thermals are a fair bit higher.
at 60hz, i was getting around 55c-58c vrm depending on the game, map and such. at 75hz, it shot up to 65c-67c.
GPU is AMD RX 480 4Gb. im not even really familiar with gpu vrm thermals, are these temps high? do they vary greatly from GPU to GPU, perhaps like different motherboard VRMs?

Just upgraded a little from https://pcpartpicker.com/list/23n9sJ to https://pcpartpicker.com/list/7vngsZ for 350€. I will sell the old CPU and motherboard, and probably the PSU.
Also, I'm using the intel cooler since the guy who sold it to me had that already installed and I didn't have any more thermal shit lying around, just ran out of it one week ago. It gets up to 70ºC tho.
So, after selling the CPU/MOBO I'd have spend like 250~200€, If I am able to sell these for 100 or more.

And, finally, as the RAM I had was 1866 and the new one 2100, it looks like the motherboard itself overclocked the slower RAM.
This will last me at least two years, just for the moment we get DDR5 and GPU/RAM prices are stable. If prices are still shit, then I guess I will get a 1150 compatible xeon for cheap and go with that.

y'all think its worth getting 2200g and risk bios issues or just settle for the 1200

>> No.64960809

Sorry for the link dump in advance. Remember to get the motherboard in person so you can get the BIOS updated
Get two of these to run in dual channel
And one of these monitors

I'd rather get a 8700K with a 1070 than a 8600K with a 1080ti.

Pricing on gpus are fucked right now and new nvidia cards are coming in april, better to go balls to wall on cpu since they will last a lifetime.

If you want to go amd, wait for the 2700X, or just wait for it anyway and see comparisons so that you will know if its better than the 8700K.

>performing better when multi-threading

8600K got 6 cores > 6 threads
1700X got 8 cores > 16 threads

1700X will beat the 8600K in cases where more threads are useful (pure processing tasks, like rendering videos or converting files). But the 8600K got better single thread performance than the 1700X and will perform better in gaming since games typically don't utilize all available threads or just simply benefit more from faster computing.

If you need further explanation, do ask please.

Wait for the B450 motherboards if you can.

Or buy used.

>premium motherboard
>budget chipset
>budget build
Reasoning for this?

Otherwise, same like above.

hows this monitor look for babbys first 1080p/anything above 60hz? have not upgraded monitor in years.
my gpu is an RX 480, hdmi 2.0b. that should be fine for 144hz right?
anything obviously bad/wrong about the monitor? price, specs(im outa the loop of monitor technologies), freesync? i read that freesync is not as useful on 144hz monitors so i opted for one without it.

hey dude I actually went from 60hz to that exact monitor @ 144hz in like 2014, it was brilliant for gaming, and i was using an amd hd 7970 , your gpu is more than adequate

right now ive upgraded to a 1080ti and a 240hz monitor but the biggest jump is 60-120+

I have that monitor, but I'm using a 1070. The 480 is quite a bit worse so I would really consider getting a FreeSync monitor.

But I got a 1080 for cheap in november so all the better for me, less value loss.

>> No.64961141

I got a 1080 ti in august so I'll be okay. I'm tempted to sell it though since its pretty much double its value and people are actually buying it at that price. I'll probably be screwed though if I do at the same time.

That's the best B350 board in my opinion. If you want to spend less get a PC Mate, it should be enough for the 2200g. Get a Focus Plus Gold or a 620 EVO, a MX300 275GB would be cheaper but slower and consider the Eclipse P300 or the MX330 for the cheapest decent one

im mostly playing quake champions these days and that game is cpu bound so i dont think its that big a deal for me.
still, do you mean look for one with 144hz AND freesync or freesync and something lower? say 120hz?
neat. happen to remember what you paid for it? im wondering how cheap this will go when on sale.

What could case a pc to not even power up after being built?

I put together some old parts I have, asrock extreme3 mobo, i5-4790k cpu with a radeon HD 7970, added a brand new PSU and used the HDD from a old stock PC I had years ago, turn it on and nothing, as if the PSU is dead, I switched out the new PSU with my old PSU (GS 700) which I know works because I'm currently using it and it still won't fire.

I pulled it apart again and cleaned everything, I checked the CPU socket, everything looks good, I though maybe it was a problem with the old HDD so I unplugged it and put my current HDD in but it still wouldn't fire.

I'm now starting to think the old asrock extreme3 motherboard is damaged, it seems like the only logical conclusion, any advice would be much appreciated.

>> No.64961621

Check all of your power connections
Make sure that your RAM and video card are properly seated
Try taking out your video card and booting from integrated graphics
Otherwise, your board has likely been damaged in some way. If the pins are bent you basically killed your socket.

Thanks for the advice. I might wait for B450 mobo now that other anon mentioned it. I will change the PSU for sure

Best motherboard for an 8700k?

>> No.64961730

If I were you, I would get more memory and HDD storage and a cheaper SSD. Any B350 board will be able to overclock the 2200G with ease, but if you plan to upgrade to an 8-core down the road then having a premium board will make overclocking less of a hassle. If you don't plan to upgrade your processor then I would get a Pro4.

Should I be using LinX as a CPU stress test? It runs much hotter than any other stress test, and seems to find errors that no other stress test will find. Is it a meme program like furmark that finds "fake" errors that no other usage scenario ever will, or is it just a really good stress test?

>> No.64961930

I use intelburntest, which is essentially the same thing but wrapped in different paper. Not to say that the errors it generates are fake, but your processor might be stable at 4GHz on Cinebench but only 3.8 on a Linpack-based test or Prime95.

Basically just balance, cost and design, nothing major that makes it better than the rest besides the cost, the only faults I found and it's just pedantic fault finding and lack of forethought on my part would be the BIOS light, which I eventually covered with some masking tape because I'm autistic about lighting. I have a 1080ti and I imagine a 1070ti will be about as thick as this too so if you seat yours in the same way it will reflect underneath off the heat sink quite badly.

There is a lot more information out about overclocking the extreme4 if you were looking to do that too but realistically these boards are so close it will come down to what you think looks better/cost.

Not that guy, but how about this: I'm getting a Noctua D-15, is the paste that comes with it okay? (if any)

Also, the local (and only) vendor here has Noctua's NT-H1 and Arctic's MX-2. Is it really worth going out of my budget to get either of them, or is the Cooler-included paste okay?

>> No.64962472

is there any place to buy really old processors and motherboards? like gen 2 i-series stuff.

im just curious since it seems like anyone who wants to build a really basic quad-core internet browser is stuck paying atleast 250 dollars for even the cheapest stuff, and the reason for this seems to be that sites like newegg, tigerdirect, etc take old hardware down really fast instead of downpricing it.

it seems like if you want a quad core web browser the best option is to actually buy an old used school compute or something with an early gen i5. for example i can pick an one up with an 2xxx i5 for 90-100 dollars easily on facebook marketplace or craigslist.
