    I read somewhere micro center will sell you a gpu for msrp if it's for gaming and not mining.

    Trailer gave me goosebumps so i thought i'd share!

    I've seen, on average, 4.6 to 4.8 stable OCs and i'm personally going for 4.8. Anyone pushing higher, like 5.0 to 5.1, isn't making something you can really use without high risk of a crash.

    Couldn't agree more. Once the build is complete run a test to see how it preforms under pressure before you run to overclocking anything. @Gallitin Try to research average temps for similar builds and find out what the Max safe temp is for the CPU and GPU. When running passmark or any other stress test/benchmark watch and see how your hardware responds. The 8700k (With the Corsair h100i v2) should idle around 30c, average around 55c to 65c when gaming, and should never sustain a temperature above 80c.

    "By default, memory should adhere to specifications set by JEDEC (formerly known as the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council). These specifications state what information should be stored in the memory EEPROM, such as manufacturer information, serial number, and other useful information. Part of this are the memory specifications for standard memory speeds, including (for DDR3) 1066 MHz, 1333 MHz and 1600 MHz, which a system will adhere to in the event of other information not being available." Source: https://www.anandtech.com/show/7364/memory-scaling-on-haswell/2?_ga=2.52297513.1418595065.1516505079-135817575.1516505079 Basically, JEDEC dictates what standard RAM clocking should be and so manufacturers set them at those speeds. However, most sticks (Now) are designed for higher and that's where the extreme memory profile (XMP) comes in. OCs the RAM giving you what the sticks are actually built for. Couldn't actually find a definitive answer as to WHY this is. Other than higher clocks messing with other hardware and software at first boot.

    My general thoughts on the build. CPU: I'm an Intel fan boy so i love the choice in CPU as i have also purchased the same just recently. RAM: Like you may be suspecting already the Ram you've chosen will most likely provide no noticeable difference in gaming or average running of the system. Also consider that whether you chose the 4000MHz or 3200MHz the Ram does come, by default, in 2133MHz. Most motherboards come with an XMP profile you'll need to enable in the BIOS to actually set the Ram to run at the speed advertised. Also, stick with 32gb if you can afford it and I'm unsure if having 4x8gb or 2x16gb is better. I went with 1x16gb 3200MHz to start out. Motherboard: I tired to do as much research as possible into this before i upgraded and it was surprising to see some consensus on how gigabyte did well on the board you picked. I would normally be recommending an Asus board but all that are available for our CPU were reviewed with average ratings. I Personally went with an Asrock Motherboard this time around as it seemed to have the most user friendly BIOS for overclocking. Case: Given you are looking at going for the 8700k (which preforms amazingly when overclocked) and you are going to pair it with that Corsair cooler i'd suggest shooting for a full tower. Not only will it provide more space for any future upgrades but it does allow you to add more fans for circulation. I've got the same CPU and cooler, had i not gone for a full tower i'd definitely feel that the CPU cooler was too large. Video Card: The biggest difference between branding i had noticed was with coil-wine. I recall reading the Asus cards had more of an issue with this than others but that was some time ago. I personally go with MSI when it comes to GPUs as I've never had an issue with them. Storage: M.2. drives cannot communicate with all cores but NVME can. I don't really know any more than that. My roommate actually works for Intel/Toshiba on these specific drives development so I may update with with more details if i can get him to sit down and type. PSU: 1k will be more than you need, but, make sure it's fully modular and you should be fine. I went with an EVGA G3 850w PSU. Fans: Most cases come with fans, but obviously they'll be a little louder than you may want. Once you've settled on a case look around for reviews and what other people did for their builds. I stuck with my stock fans. My current build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Ryzbnn My GPU, HDD, and SSD are the only hold overs from my last PC.

  12. The point of the thread is to give perspective for those new to the game or to those considering upgrades before they commit to their purchases. As has been mention, everyone is welcome to their opinion, but refrain from ad-hominem or emotional responses to make your point. If you have nothing constructive to add then simply do not reply to this thread.

    Nice fleet there! We offer a great tool on our Portal page that lets you put your ships in a hanger. You can make it public so you can show it off or make it private so only fleet operations can view it. https://portal.starcitizenbase.com/user/view/1373/hangar Visit the portal and add your ships! ^

    I like, 'Say My Name' 'Dark Was The Night' 'All Under Heaven' 'Two For Flinching' 'Generic Name Here' Totally didn't rip all of these off from the Halo universe...

    @Prospero It's been a long time! I'd take a look at what they showed us during Citizencon a week ago.
