I'm building a rig for some heavy DAW work which includes soft synths, heavy effect chain usage and audio editing/repair. Will also use for some light 1080p gaming at low/med.
I'm opting for an ultrawide monitor as its extra real estate pairs well with Ableton's UI.
My main priorities are keeping temperatures and decibels low without sacrificing too much power.

The 1080 kind of feels retarded to get compared to a 1070ti. The video's I've been watching usually show a super negligible performance increase between the two cards, like 2%-6% on most games where the cards are like 10% difference in price.

I have no idea. You'd have to look up reviews.
15% more for 2600X is normal. Go with that.

Your CPU isn't capable of doing 60fps minimum in everything you play even if you put settings on lowest, does it? Doesn't it stutter?
I wouldn't upgrade to more than a 1050Ti or RX560 until you upgrade CPU.

Not as bad as Patriot.

>Ryzen users spoiled by low temps and think 60C is hot

It's mATX's fault you bought a PCI wifi card instead of a USB one which'll allow you to distance the antenae from the case for better signal ???
There are also m.2 options for both USB hubs and wifi with external cords.
Anyway, the b350m pro4 should allow that. Wifi in x1, and usb hub in the bottom x8.

>Secondly, what's a good chipset/processor I can build around that is popular and works well for a home server
Not sure. Weren't those previous Xeon W's super fast? Like 5### ones. Not the new ones with mesh.

Yes. 1070Ti is 95% the cores, same ROPs, for cheaper. Getting a 1080 is generally a retard move.
Though if you don't have a adaptive sync monitor, getting a 1070Ti over Vega56 is an even more retarded move given Freesync.

4 phases.

Just use stock cooler until you feel it's not good enough.
Get 650w PSU.

You don't need an account to use pcpp

Either get the Pro model or get cheaper SSD.
Would 1440p not cost much more? If you're not gaming, 1440p is much nicer for productivity like DAW.

Motherboard could be better
WAY too high price on video card
Memory is too expensive and might not even be B-die
A14 makes more sense than A15 as case fan (unless you want a triple-fan D15 but even then you should only do one A15)
Tomahawk does not have good enough VRMs do do meaningful OC

>> No.66391380

Your current RAM is 1600, not 800. DOUBLE Data Rate. Not worth your effort for the extra 533MHz.

Used is becoming less worth it as all applications and windows itself are more demanding. Unless you're one of those people who can meticulously keep your PC optimized to run well, 4c/4t are generally suffering lately.
But if you find a Devil's Canyon i7 or newer for <$350, go for that, basically.

Oh. CA tax? I buy from Newegg without tax but I think CA has it.
Go for the Pulse.
I also see Strix for $530 from Newegg.

Splitting it will have slightly lower ripple and load on the rail usually.

Thanks for the backup.

You also get much cheaper 75Hz 1440p IPS monitors with Freesync, while there is no such option for Gsync, to save another 100 or 200 Euro more over that 171 initial savings.

The funny thing is, DE prices don't suck. That Anon is just too stupid to be able to add two numbers together.
Prices are completely comparable to US ones. Just like 5% higher for everything. Same value proposition.

1070Ti doesn't have 10% more performance, but ok do it. It's your money to waste if you want to spend 17% more for 0% more performance but to simply *~believe~* you have more performance because you're retarded enough to compare 1070Ti to the slower reference Vega 56 that you can't even buy.

Motherboard more efficient and uses higher quality components so it will last longer, run cooler, and potentially hold up an OC better although most X470 boards can do that fine
No, the 1070 Ti is N O T worth that much. MSRP is $450 and I don't even consider it to be worth that. The Vega I suggested is probably better anyway
Also, the memory kit you have listed may be on QVL but if it isn't B-die it costs WAY too much and the kit I labeled is definitely B-die and also cheaper.
(With B-die QVL is pointless)
Ryzen, definitely. Your PC is far too old to be sinking cash into.

>> No.66391564

It's not worth upgrading anything pre-Haswell. Even 2700k really falls behind now days with the much lower IPC. Given DDR3 prices are also stupid, I'd say it's just not worth upgrading what you have. Especially since your board doesn't support k CPUs.

Given your budget, maybe keep graphics card until prices go down further?
You could also try selling your entire PC and getting a 2400G which has an iGPU more powerful than your current graphics card.
Your budget is so small. Maybe if you snag that $100 RX560 before they disappear, and factor in getting like $100 selling your PC (going to be hard with no SSD and only 4GB, I think..) for $650 total. But if not, you can still make a 2400G PC for under $550.

If you find a Sandy or Ivybridge i5 or i7 Optiplex for nothing, they can be a great start. Just make sure to look for something with reasonable storage and at least 8gb ram already fitted to minimise spending. Something like a 1050ti that doesn't need external PCIe power would be a solid bet.

It will work but consider that the CPU is already far outdated so you will need to save up the money to upgrade at some point

>what would you say is a good price. i've been seeing more and more optiplexes being sold with 8gb ram, 256 gb ssd or tb hdd and an 15 3470 or better for prices ranging from $200-300$.
If you can get away with the inclusion of an i7, SSD and 8gb of ram on the lower end of $200-300, you'd already be off to a great start. But as the other guy was mentioning, 4 cores is bare minimum these days, so I'd definitely focus on finding something with a 2600 or 3770 i7. I disagree with the other guy in the sense of Sandy/Ivybridge being outdated. It's a few generations old sure, but is still every bit as relevant when paired with a low/midrange GPU like a 1050ti. Especially if you can get a whole system cheap.
Other options like looking for secondhand gaming PC's can be a good option with previously mentioned 3770s and even 4770s being good value. It also opens up the possibility of unlocked chips for simple overclocking. Pair a 4770k/Z97 board up with a secondhand GTX970 and you'll have a solid gaming PC.

Recently I asked whether it was straightforward to remove the molex adapter from my case fan in order to plug them directly in the motherboard (3-pin headers in my case). Someone here replied it was, and on the internet many people seem to say that it's trivial, but I cannot for the life of me find a tutorial for doing exactly that. Anybody know of one somewhere, or care to show pictures or something? I don't think I'll be comfortable cutting any of the wiring otherwise.

I might instead consider buying a molex to 3-pin fan socket adapter, but those are surprisingly expensive (and they all seem to be male-to-male, whereas I would instead require female-to-male if I'm not mistaken). I might just give up and plug the molex in my PSU instead.

You mean your case fan only has a molex to power it? Or it also has a 3-pin? If the former, just get a new fan. You'll spend more time and effort cutting wires and trying to splice over a 3 pin connector than you would just buying a cheap $8 replacement.

As for plugging a 3 pin fan into your motherboard, you won't have any control over the speed of the fan. Only 4-pin PWM fans can have that done. 3 pins require voltage inhibitors or dedicated fan controllers to change speeds. With molex/3-pin, the fan is either on or off. No in between.

>> No.66393444

>You mean your case fan only has a molex to power it?
The case only comes with a molex adapter meant for the PSU (or at least, I think it does, I haven't actually received the case yet). The case also comes with 3 fans.

>moving goalposts to non-adaptive sync because you're blind and can't see screen tearing.
Recommendations don't assume people are blind. Would assume blind people don't even need a video card since they'll primarily utilize text to speech and such.

I'd get 2x4GB of RAM and a 500GB SSD. You can add more RAM later, but transfering over to new SSD can be more of a pain.
Also wait for PSU sales. You can often get 550W semi-modular or fully modular, sometimes even gold rated, for around $35.

People do when they play to upgrade to 7nm to get more out of their board and how much they're paying for memory.
But for very cheap builds with 2666 RAM, yeah 8400 isn't bad. Though nor is cheap Ryzen CPU as fast RAM is likely to matter less on the next generation.

Just upgrade CPU imo. Your graphics card is still pretty alright other than perf/watt.

It means some boards have two dimm slots per channel and some have one. Whether all slots within a channel are populated makes no difference to performance if the capacity is the same (say 1x8gb vs 2x4gb). Sometimes a smaller capacity stick with a similar clock speed may have an ever so marginally better latency, but it's a near on immeasurable performance advantage.
I can understand if your motivation for choosing a 4x4 kit over a 2x8 kit is more for aesthetic reasons, but it comes at the cost of expandability... If you'd ever need more than 16gb.

AMD's memory controller has always preferred 2DR>4SR>2SR, actually.
It's only like a 2% performance improvement of 4SR over 2SR, but if you know you won't need more than 16gb(probably won't), and it's the same price, it's fine.

It's not the sort of benefit you get with actually using 4 channels, but it's measurable.

Fans and cases are mainly superficial
RAM in a lot of builds is lacking or people spend way too much for RGB
I've seen a fuckton of dumb CPU cooling ideas, especially with the 7700K and 8700K, probably the most common but tied for worst mistake people tend to make with overspending on video card when similar or better options exist for less
PSUs are a dice roll where a few people invest way too much and a few more get something really cheap
Why would you buy an old card though
Especially if you already have one and can wait for money and/or new releases
8350K stutters in the more CPU intensive games
8400 is better all around but does not make much sense compared to Ryzen 2600/X
I nominate the 2600 or that ebay deal on the 8500 as best options in the price range
Depends on how much you're willing to spend

Your case can do a 360mm rad which I strongly recommend over 240
Would go for the G3 750 PSU
Perhaps a 1TB SSD for not much more?
Otherwise it's very solid
Completely fanless? Not great for mITX since they tend to have underpowered VRMs and bad heatsinks to match, at least for Coffee Lake overclocking
Ryzen or locked chips could do well though, especially with the Wraith coolers since they blow over the heatsinks
The 8400 will ramp up to 4GHz if you put stress on it like a game or benchmark
You cannot directly manipulate the turbo except for turning it off entirely.
G3 750
Also, please don't use converters. It's a good way to have your rig go up in flames. Even if they are well made you still add resistance and are aesthetically unappealing. Also 500W is gonna be very close to triggering OCP and having system shutoff during load which would make benchmarking/stress testing OC impossible or just very inconvenient

750 gives a comfortable amount of headroom, not to say that 650 won't do the job but it's less of an upgrade and the last thing you want is to buy a new part just to have it be inadequate.

What CPU are you using? Have you already got the CPU? There's a few refurbished Z87 and Z97 Asrock boards on eBay and Amazon for about $100-150, but then you've gotta buy a DDR3 kit on top of that. If you've already got the DDR4 kit depending what it is you'd probably be better off selling your CPU (presuming it's a 3770, 4770, 4790 or something worthwhile) on ebay and potentially getting another couple hundred dollars.
Put that toward a new H370/8400 Coffee Lake or B350/2600 Ryzen combination.

1. Coretemp
2. Youtube channels like Gamers Nexus, Bitwit, Jayztwocents, Linus Tech Tips
Auto OC is almost always garbage (not counting MCE which is a simple way to boost multicore performance)
The Gaming Pro is hardly red at all desu. MSI was surprisingly tasteful if you don't count the heatsinks which are closer to bricks than fins. Turn off the LEDs if you really care.
X470 is nice to have for the out of box support and free StoreMI
The 2600X has the Spire which can handle mild OC (using precision boost overdrive) but if you aren't interested then it will run stock settings like a champ
Harder OC to 1.3V+ would require a tower cooler or closed loop radiator
That about covers it.
If you aren't posting I'm pretty sure there are guides to fix it
Most commonly you didn't plug in a power connector, your BIOS doesn't recognize the CPU (on B350 and X370 with a 2000 series chip), or you haven't turned on your PSU.

Ive been jumping around on graphics cards a lot but I think I'll just stick with the 1070.

I basically just want guaranteed 60 fps 1080p without the card getting pushed. The 1060 6gb is on the low end for future titles and the 1080/1070ti are like $600 and super overkill for what I need/want. The vega56 is radion and I'm not exactly confident in the performance/consistency across games or the pricing.

Are you actually retarded?
Many X399 boards are going to work on the new 250W TDP CPUs with a BIOs update.

A good number of Z270 boards had capable enough VRMs for the 8700k and work with unofficial hacked BIOS. Intel just arbitrarily restricts them in anti consumerism.


Get 280mm radiator minimum. I prefer those over 360, actually.

That is outdated, and mem support is better but yes it's more difficult to run DR at higher speeds. But DR at 2933 is generally greater than SR at 3200. And if you can run it at the same speed, it's much faster.

Armor is also a good alternative to reference to replace the cooler on. As far as I'm aware, PCB is superior to reference.

Dual boot is easier. Passthrough VM with 2 monitors and GPUs is best.

2700X doesn't cost much more, but if you plan to jump on 7nm in less than a year, the $100 saved is still something.

>wins by default since AM4 socket has a clear upgrade path to Zen 2 next year.
Well sure. For something to just hold you over until 7nm, it can't be beat. But I've seen 1600s on sale for like $165...

>SMT is a meme for games
This isn't true. There are 5 year old games which are stutter fests with only 4 threads. Crysis 3, Metro Last Light, etc. Even GTAV benefits a bit from 8 threads over 4.
There's even some games which do significantly better on the 0.1% minimums with 4c/8t than 6c/6t. I don't suspect this is much the case lately as devs are better at detecting how many threads you have and optimizing how many software threads to dispact for it, whereas lots of older games were just optimized for 8 and let windows schedule just double them up on 4c/4t and leave them uneven on 6c/6t, but still.

Currently I have pic related in my PC from 2012 (except the GPU which was bought recently).

I want to upgrade during the next 2-3 month. The only thing I'll use from my old PC is my 1060 until I can find a cheaper and better one.
PC will be used for gaming, editing (old version of premiere and after effects, and since a couple of month Nuke), gamedev (mostly unity) and streaming (pc games and gamedev work).

Here is what I want to upgrade to:

OS: Windows 10
CPU: i7-8700k or Ryzen 7 2700x (not yet decided, need to read more about it)
MB: MSI Z370 PC PRO or MSI X470 GAMING PLUS (depending on the CPU, since the 8700k is kind of a bitch)
GPU: MSI GTX 1060 Armor 3GB OC (keeping it from old PC)
RAM: 16GB G.Skill Aegis DDR4-2400 (or maybe 2x8GB since I heard some people say that this would be better)
SDD: 500GB Samsung 860 Evo (for OS and startup stuff)

All in all, this i kind of my ~800 bucks budged.

>deepcool PSU
yeah that is not good, is it?

I'd also question how well XFR2 is going to work on that super cheap board. Why not just get a 2600X?
Better board, better PSU, 500GB SSD, using the savings from dropping down to a 2600X would be a better build.

Is this from a local shop? I'm assuming they'll update b350 BIOS for you, but that's a really low end model.

2700X is nice when it comes to making VMs to test on Linux/Mac and for the upgrade path to 7nm.
Get 2666 RAM minimum, whichever way you go.
The AM4 version of that board is significantly better than the Z370 one. I would recommend you get the non-k CPU and just get an H370 board. Though... H370 is gimped as fuck compared to b350. Doesn't support PCIe bifurcation so you can't drop gpu to x8 for more expand-ability. Maybe just get cheapest Z370 with a 8700 non-k if you decide to go with Intel.
You could also wait for B450 boards and potentially have enough money to get a 1TB SSD like the MX500 within your budget.

>> No.66398683

mid-late next month, I think.

Er to clarify, I'm saying you shouldn't get the Z370 PC Pro with the 8700k. Is 8700k even on the list of supported CPUs?... I'm surprised 3 non-doubled phases can even run that CPU with MCE on.
The cheap Z370 boards are... I was going to say 4 or 3*2 core phases, yet apparently there's even a 3 phase like that. The cheapest X470 boards are far better quality, with cheapest generally being 5-6 or 4*2 phase.
If you're getting an 8700k, you should have at least 5 or 4*2 core phases, and those boards are typically in the $165+ range iirc.
A 4 or 3*2 phase would be fine for an 8700 non-k, though.

>> No.66398695

Sorry for the late reply, but happy to help. The i5 you have might lack hyper threading of the 4770, but it's still a capable quad core. Presuming you went with either one of those Z87/97 chip boards it'd be worth seeing what sort of an overclock you can get from your CPU. Haswell and Broadwell weren't the best overclockers compared to the Sandy/Ivy-bridge before and Sky/Kaby-lake that followed, but you should be able to aim for 4.2-4.4ghz.

Just curious Refrigeration cooler guy, is there a particular source you get your information on VRM phases and amps for each specific board? Because from the consumer marketing tripe I'm aware of, it only seems to be Asrock that make a song and dance about their VRM.
Or do you just watch a shit load of Buildzoid videos?

>Why not just get a 2600X?

Thanks for the advice I will consider a build with that. The price is not set, I could dump more money into it but the issue is actually finding the parts.

>Is this from a local shop? I'm assuming they'll update b350 BIOS for you, but that's a really low end model.

Yeah, they will put it together and update the bios. I guess you could say it's from a local shop but they're generally considered the best supplied in the country (sad state)

Do you see anything here that would work well with the 2700x?


it says the deepcool is 80plus certified. Other brands except deepcool available are Gigabyte or Cooler Master.

If you can get it to run 80-85 stable, with the occassional spike to 90 thats fine(hot, but fine)

It doesn't compete though. Aswell as the cheaper mobo's hold it back(they don't have good enough VRM's to allow the i5-8400 to auto-overclock for long).
There is a reason they stated it's based at 2.8ghz. Meanwhile my 5 year old i5-4400 base clock is 3,3ghz.

>> No.66398915

not him, but the data is readily available once you get the actual part number
it's either on the chip itself, on the datasheet or you would have to deduce from the sort of cpu it'd be meant to feed and narrow it down from there
once you have the controller specs you know immediately if your phases are real no trouble
plus motherboard manufacturers tend to go for the same parts over and over, so after a while someone like buildzoid would hardly have to guess anymore

it's a 4 phase and on the weaker side but definitely much better than the gaming 3 you were going for initially

Does your new mobo have prefered slots for higher speed ram? My new asus pro x470 prime was fussy and didn't want to run my memory kit at rated speeds unless i put the sticks in the slots marked for it. Was a case of read the fucking manual to be sure. Works just fine now.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as "lag" is in fact, low framerate, or as I've recently taken to calling it, lag/framespikes. Lag is not a function of graphical power unto itself, but rather another separate component of a fully noticable game slowdown, made notable through network speed, connection quality, and operating system resource management (RAM usage, memory leaks, etc.) as defined by ping.

Many computer users notice a version of framerate issues every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, this type of game slowdown which is widely used today is often called "lag" and many of its users are not aware that it is basically a GPU/CPU issue, not affected by network latency at all.

There really is a "lag" and these people do often experience it, but it is just part of the problems that occur. Lag is ping, network-based latency: the connection between your computer and the host game servers. The framerate drops are essentially caused by GPU/CPU bottlenecks, and are not related to lag by themselves; they only function in the context of a complete game slowdown. Lag is normally used in combination with frametime issues: the whole system is basically low framerate with lag added, or slowdown/lag. All the so called "lag" issues are really issues with framerates/frametimes.

so i just got a 144hz monitor recently and i started getting crashes a lot and i know its to do with the monitor or at least the display port cable because when i moved it even slightly it would cause the pc to restart. the monitor came with 2 different dp cables and i replaced the cheaper looking one with the more premium samsung branded one and i had no crashes after that for like 6 hours but then this morning and it crashed again randomly when watching youtube

>It doesn't matter on 60hz screens because you can stay locked at 60 fine.
Fucking retard, 60hrz screens is where you will see a lot of screen tearing, and this is where you NEED a solution like v-sync, adaptive v-sync free-sync g-sync to mitigate it.
On high refresh monitors you get virtually no screen tearing and it's utterly retarded to get those solutions on something that doesn't need it.
Fuck off with your shill solutions to problems that virtually don't exist.

>If you are using 120 or 144hrz monitor you absolutely don't need muh sync.
can verify this, i'm >>66399241 and i haven't noticed any screentearing at all even when at 60 fps in games like ac origins. however i do get some occasional stutter in bf1 however that's more to do with my cpu crapping out because it's a 5 year old i5 quad core. variable sync is a meme to cash out on retards imo.

>$350 on a 580

fuck no. get a cheaper 580 like a red devil or go for a gtx 1060 6gb (which i would recommend based on my experience with people who own it)
also consider how many games you play are nvidia sponsored because if they are nvidia sponsored expect wack performance on amd gpu.

also get a ryzen 2600/x, it will last longer, supports overclocking whenever you decide to do that (which you will eventually) and the motherboards for ryzen will last 2 more generations till 2020 so upgrading will be cheaper.

try and get 3000mhz ram too

nvidia gpu + amd gpu is the way to go nowadays.

The cooler is overkill. Yes, Intel uses shitty TIM, but the 8400 still has only 65W TDP and it can't be overclocked, so there's no reason to spend more than $30 on a cooler.
That PSU is WAY overpriced. You can get an EVGA or Seasonic of comparable performance for about half the price. Or if you really want to splurge on the PSU, get a Seasonic Prime.
As for noise, generally it's not very noticeable at idle. You can hear it in a quiet room, but if you have a youtube video or music playing, you won't even be able to hear it. Many high-end PSUs have a semi-passive mode, meaning the fans won't even spin until it's under load(generally something like half the wattage).

>> No.66399444

Not really room in the OP to mention how it's a dead socket, that Intel's 8 core won't be on the same chipset, etc. And that it's really niche. It's pretty good for gaming, but the 2600 is +/- the same as well as being better for everything else on top of having a better upgrade path with AM4 support until 2020.
Also, those cheap b260 motherboards only have 12 fucking PCIe lanes, don't they? And know PCIe bifurcation. They're really really really shit.
There's so many caveats that are attached to an 8400 recommendation.

We do recommend it for really cheap builds, if you actually read through the posts. I remember it was recommended a few times in the last few /pcbg/ threads.

>Do you see anything here that would work well with the 2700x?
Huh. They don't have X470 boards?

Would be fine for 2600X but I'd really recommend more for a 2700X.
Sadly, a lot of b350 boards had issues with manufacturers just not taking them seriously. The X470 boards are way nicer except for Gigabyte.
I don't see any X470 boards on your list, which is weird. I'd really just recommend cheapest ATX X470 for your purpose.
No b350 boards on that list stand out. Mortar has tons of issues. Tomahawk tends to have issues. Gaming 3 would be okay for a 2600X I think but not 2700X.

>Why is Buildzoid so perfect

>source for vrm phases
.... I look at the board. The same thing he does, but I can't always see pictures under the heatsink to know for sure, so there is a degree of guessing. At most you're going to be off by 1-2 or 1*2 phases, generally, doing that.
That MSI PC Pro one could be 4+2 instead of 3+3. That seems likely, really. But 4 or 3*2 vcore phases isn't enough for a 8700k.
You could also google for the particular board when you can't tell by looking at the number, size, and arrangement of chokes, though they don't always come up.

Since you're going for high-end build you should get NVMe instead of SSD

Did consumer GPUs used to have SR-IOV and shit that these high end cards now have?
Only big thing I can see that's missing is that the 7970 had insane fp64 for the time. 1/4th rate, with its fp32 rate also being absurdly high for the time.

Just because someone is going "high end" doesn't mean they should spend double on SSD for a 3% performance increase in most cases.
