They have the Hero for about £10 more, also the price does not include shipping, probably would have sold me if it did
The cheapest I have seen the board for separately is £165 and the i7 6700k is £275 so at worst you save a few quid if it's the board you want. Was right for me as not many at this price have dual LAN, 2x M.2 sockets for turbo charged RAID 0 SSD's (be wary if you plan on using both M.2's as it will eat some of your bandwidth for the chipset (i.e you will lose some SATA sockets) and thunderbolt!
whats the benefit of dual lan
Extra bandwidth for LAN/ WAN connections. I will use one to connect directly to my server to make use of the faster read/write speeds of the M.2 drive (it's faster than going from the server to the patch panel to the router back to the patch panel to my comp) but servers often have dual LAN connections for extra WAN bandwidth.

People need to understand the possibilities with this case. No it isn't the most compact ITX case out there.

But it does allow fans in the GPU chamber for static air flow to improve cooling, support for an AIO liquid cooler for the CPU, slim optical drive support and 3.5" HDD support (although this drive sits on top of the PSU, so you may want to reconsider using this feature for a high performance drive).

All in all it's a great case that can accept enthusiast grade hardware under the TV with decent overclocking potential, for those that are into that :)

Didn't realise how much bad press these drives have. Thought it was a decent deal at first glance, guess they aren't even worth £50. I'll stick with my two Samsung Evo's I reckon haha.

The v300s are discontinued stock now but i think they made way too many of them then nobody wanted them (for obvious reasons) so the stock isn't shifting.

I can only justify them in low power situations... otherwise save your pennies

The 6700k has a bit better IPC, other than that x99 is better overall yes. I chatted to a guy over email who is involved at Digital Foundry, he is planning to test the 5820k. But basically what he said was that the 6700k's advantage vs the 4790k in their results was a mix of the bandwidth that DDR4 brings as well as IPC, so if you look at DF's results for gaming you can't use the 4790k to take the place of a 5820k to judge performance.

He seems to think the 5820k will be better once overclocked, and he also mentioned the division using 12 threads, which i never knew about either. I myself went with the 5820k back in last March.

Edited By: WelshJester on Feb 13, 2016 11:30
Easy2BCheesy
I'm a bit confused about this 6700K vs 5820K comparison. Seems to be a lot of conflicting information.

* Pretty sure both can be overclocked to 4.5GHz/4.6GHz so while the 6700K may be faster for games at stock, they both OC to much the same frequency - certainly to within margin of error. And who buys a K chip if not to overclock it.

* A lot of people dismiss the 6700K for not being that much faster than 4790K, but the 5820K is based on the same Haswell architecture as the 4790K and it's got a theoretical +50% in processing power plus quad-channel memory bandwidth plus access to faster DDR4 vs DDR3 on the quad.

* The idea that games don't use more than four threads is a myth - virtually every major modern game does because the engines are based on multi-core tech designed for PS4 and Xbox One. The Division beta even used 12 threads - my mate has a 3930K who observed this.

So here's what I don't get. I can understand that the 6700K at stock speeds could possibly beat the 5820K. But if both are overclocked to the same frequency and both are running the latest games, I don't see how the 5820K *can't* win - unless you accept that Skylake is a huge upgrade over Haswell.

Hi folks,
What advantages would this processor give me against an intel i7 950 with 16 GB Ram?
I mainly do encoding, but like a PC that don't freeze on me.
Very serious on upgrading, just making sure I am on the right path.
Cheers
This would give you a performance increase and much better power consumption. However, if you're building for strictly encoding then a 6700K probably isn't the path you want to walk down. X99/5820K is better suited for purely encoding. Z170/6700K would be better suited to a gamer with side projects of encoding. X99 is also better for multiple GPUs.

I'm sure they'll offer it again soon on a deal. Few months ago these processors were incredibly hard to get a hold of, now not so much.

So, I'm a member of the overclockers forums. It turns out Ferrari100 is too. And he said on a thread that I saw just now that his nano had coil whine! https://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18691612&highlight=ferrari&page=19
"Guys. I bought a PowerColor Nano and recieved it Monday.

Not bad eh.
Small amount of coil whine at times but not as bad as a 290 when that gets going.
Bear in Mind the not sooo fast Intel i5 - 4460 doing the CPU work."
Uhm...didn't he already post that that would happen during synthetic testing, rather than during gaming with FRTC engaged? I also noticed he mentioned a 10% overclock. I don't think he ever claimed coil whine was non-existent.
Just trying to be fair here, not choosing sides.
No worries, I'm trying to be fair too & am on neither side. He did say that it wouldn't whine while overclocked, but in my experience this isn't the case. Whine is more likely to occur during high frame rates, while synethic testing produces comparatively low frame rates. All FRTC does is limit the FPS, and so wouldn't unfortunately help if coil whine is present below 60 FPS (my experience). Mileage varies, but it's a minor thing to consider.

I know about FRTC as it's saved my sanity with games like Rocket League, Battlefront, Just Cause 3, etc. There are moments in those kinds of games where the fps ramps up to crazy highs during menus, cutscenes, gameplay, etc. (I have an R9 290X). Btw, I run a 144Hz monitor, so I like more than 60!

The only proper way for this to progress is for a random purchase of Nano cards from various places and testing them under normal gaming conditions. The problem with forums is that most opinions come from the ends of each spectrum, i.e. those with problems, or the ones with great enthusiast levels of excitement for a product. The people in-between are, well, few and far between!

Methinks it's time to end this debate as it will never get anywhere. Someone can claim one thing, while someone else will claim another.

I guess we could gone on and on with this. You have your opinion and I have mine. I think it's best to agree to disagree on this matter. Because I can see your point of view. But Molex is a dying connection. And the tech that is normally associated with it is either old or exotic in my eyes, but ofc not in yours.

So I'm just going to leave it at that.

Have fun and never stop smiling. :)

2 Molex connectors is a bit stingy isn't it?
Don't most people need more than that?
Not unless you are using old tech.
Some things like front i/o, PCI-E hardware (not just GPU's) require extra power.
Like I said old tech.
No but ok :)
But yes, I'd like to see this hardware that needs all these molex connections. (_;)
My card reader and case isn't old yet these use 4-pin, so no.
"All these molex"? What, 2?
And do you have a link to this case of yours?
There is also a Molex connector to power all of the LEDs, and that leaves the USB 2.0, native USB 3.0, and the much longer HD audio connections off to the right side.http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/6641/corsair-graphite-780t-full-tower-chassis-review/index4.html
I see one molex connector on that case. And maybe one for your card reader.
But do you know what is the really funny thing here. People that buy that case that you say you have. Don't tend to put cheap power supplies in that case anyway. As it's a high end case. People that buy that case are overclockers and gamers. So I'm sure if you are that type of person. You wouldn't buy the above power supply anyway.
Anyway I'm done here. Enjoy your many molex connectors that you seem to need. 8)
Lower end Corsair cases also have molex.
I never once said I need more than 2, or did I? The discussion came from you saying hardware that requires molex is old... Which is false.
Hey I said I wouldn't post again, but I got up early and had nothing better to do. :)
Lower end cases might indeed have molex on them still. But the point here is that this power supply is for budget systems. And budget systems won't have a need for all of these molex connections. So someone that buys this power supply will be most likely on a budget. And will not have a need for molex other than one or two connectors max. This is something you clearly seem to not understand. And if you still need more evidence that this is a budget power supply. Take a look at how many 6+2-Pin-PCIe connectors there are. Yes just two for one graphics card only.
And my old tech comment is not false. Most people have now moved over to sata connections on there drives. So my comment on old tech still standards. And if you keep thinking over wise then you are just fooling yourself.
"The Molex connectors are almost from the beginning of the first PCs in use to the present day, and are used to include the following components:
5.25 "- floppy -drives.
IDE, MFM, and parallel SCSI - hard drives
Some SATA hard disks which have a dual-power connector
Internal CD - and DVD -drives and other built-in devices such as internal zip and LS drives.
Exotic devices such as front panels for sound cards that can be installed in 5.25 "openings.
Some separate PC fans have a Molex mating connector. By "separately" is then meant that these connectors extra will be added in the PC / built to the entire PC case extra cooling or air bearing or intended specifically for the CPU, though the latter usually own type 3 or 4 Using pin power connector which is controllable from the motherboard.
Some adapters / PC cards that in the ISA - or PCI be inserted -slots, can with a Molex connector of extra required power (power be provided which not through it) board can be delivered. This phenomenon was fairly often in the 90s in some video (editing) cards."
Molex are just as bad as those PCI slots that some motherboard companies still put on our board. When most of us as well as the card making companies have moved over to the new PCI Express standard. Companies always seem to build an amount of backward compatibility into there tech. More so on there budget items I have noticed.
Btw, I have a Corsair 450D, which has no Molex connections on it at all. :p

If internal hardware needs extra power it normally uses molex. New or old hardware. It's irrelevant that you don't have any that needs it.

And using PCI to compare it with... Where's the molex version of PCI-E X1? SATA power, yes for SATA drives instead of molex for IDE... USB?
There isn't a molex replacement for hardware that needs extra power, like fans, fan controllers, card readers, etc

And my old tech comment is not false.

I gave you examples of new hardware using molex so yes it's false.

No idea about the rest. You have a grudge against molex or something :)

At the end of the day it doesn't really matter what you and I think of molex. If you need more than 2 molex you wouldn't buy this, and if you don't, it wouldn't matter.

Lower end cases might indeed have molex on them still. But the point here is that this power supply is for budget systems. And budget systems won't have a need for all of these molex connections. So someone that buys this power supply will be most likely on a budget. And will not have a need for molex other than one or two connectors max. This is something you clearly seem to not understand. And if you still need more evidence that this is a budget power supply. Take a look at how many 6+2-Pin-PCIe connectors there are. Yes just two for one graphics card only.

And my old tech comment is not false. Most people have now moved over to sata connections on there drives. So my comment on old tech still standards. And if you keep thinking over wise then you are just fooling yourself.

"The Molex connectors are almost from the beginning of the first PCs in use to the present day, and are used to include the following components:

5.25 "- floppy -drives.
IDE, MFM, and parallel SCSI - hard drives
Some SATA hard disks which have a dual-power connector
Internal CD - and DVD -drives and other built-in devices such as internal zip and LS drives.
Exotic devices such as front panels for sound cards that can be installed in 5.25 "openings.
Some separate PC fans have a Molex mating connector. By "separately" is then meant that these connectors extra will be added in the PC / built to the entire PC case extra cooling or air bearing or intended specifically for the CPU, though the latter usually own type 3 or 4 Using pin power connector which is controllable from the motherboard.
Some adapters / PC cards that in the ISA - or PCI be inserted -slots, can with a Molex connector of extra required power (power be provided which not through it) board can be delivered. This phenomenon was fairly often in the 90s in some video (editing) cards."

Molex are just as bad as those PCI slots that some motherboard companies still put on our board. When most of us as well as the card making companies have moved over to the new PCI Express standard. Companies always seem to build an amount of backward compatibility into there tech. More so on there budget items I have noticed.

Btw, I have a Corsair 450D, which has no Molex connections on it at all. :p

2 Molex connectors is a bit stingy isn't it?
Don't most people need more than that?
Not unless you are using old tech.
Some things like front i/o, PCI-E hardware (not just GPU's) require extra power.
Like I said old tech.
No but ok :)
But yes, I'd like to see this hardware that needs all these molex connections. (_;)
My card reader and case isn't old yet these use 4-pin, so no.
"All these molex"? What, 2?
And do you have a link to this case of yours?
There is also a Molex connector to power all of the LEDs, and that leaves the USB 2.0, native USB 3.0, and the much longer HD audio connections off to the right side.http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/6641/corsair-graphite-780t-full-tower-chassis-review/index4.html
I see one molex connector on that case. And maybe one for your card reader.
But do you know what is the really funny thing here. People that buy that case that you say you have. Don't tend to put cheap power supplies in that case anyway. As it's a high end case. People that buy that case are overclockers and gamers. So I'm sure if you are that type of person. You wouldn't buy the above power supply anyway.
Anyway I'm done here. Enjoy your many molex connectors that you seem to need. 8)

Lower end Corsair cases also have molex.

Word of warning if this is to be used with a hot GPU.

You need more fans , i have a 230mm front . 140mm exhaust and 2x 120mm at the top to try and cool a R390.With 70% fans running modern games like GTA and Assasins creed it sits around 80c ,but produces loads of noise (gpu fans) and you need the front door of the case open for extra flow.

The side panel being solid is a killer , i emailed bitfenix to try and order another side panel so i could drill it but there customer service is awful and didnt get back to me after several emails from me.

The design and sturdiness of the case is second to none and feels very expensive. The lights are pretty cool when you decide to turn them on too.

Well it's apparently the opposite, the 'k' model of the i5 is intended to be overclocked. You can go from I think 3.5hz to 4.4 or 4.5, I have a good watercooler too so it should be do-able.
By all accounts I've read you can't really push my card, a Sapphire R390 Nitro, much higher than its factory clock. I'll probably look into it though.
You're probably aware of course but overclocking the CPU won't help in all games, but it will in some. Far Cry 4 for example I think is one that benefits from a faster CPU.
An i7-6700K would have been my preference, but they were over 50% more, so I didn't feel I could justify it..... sadly! It's barely a couple of weeks old and I have buyers remorse already..... lol

With an AMD GPU, probably, the increase in IPC due to overclocking should reduce the CPU overhead issues with their drivers slightly. For gaming, I'd always overclock the GPU first to see any FPS benefits. There's no harm in trying it first.



​Tried this by the way, but not much success. Managed to get a stable 4.6GHz on the i5-6600k, but the GPU barely waw any increases at all.

I managed some mild gains, took the clock from 1040 out the box to 1080 and the memory from 1500 to 1600, but even that wasn't stable. I started seeing some visual artefacts appearing when playing The Witcher 3.

Considering how minimal the gains are I've just put it back to the speeds it was overclocked to out if the box. Didn't seem worth it to push it further than intended when I'm seeing problems and the performance gain was so negligible.

I picked up a 390 (Sapphire, Nitro) recently for about £215 and am very impressed. I play on a 1440p ultrawide monitor, a 3440x1440 res, and paired with an i5-6600k that I haven't overclocked yet it made mincemeat out of Skyrim and Alien Isolation. A pretty solid 75fps. Alien hasn't missed a beat. Shadow of Mordor dipped to 50/40s with all on ultra (freesync ironed it out too) so I'm interested to see how overclocking the i5 helps.
For 1440p it seems a great card, will manage even fairly recent games without a problem, and for the newest, most demanding games it still seems very capable.
£250 still feels like it would be a good price and it's not a fortune, so you can always drop in another new card if the next wave or two is absolutely phenomenal.
Ultrawide is awesome btw lol

where did you get it for 215?

I think this would be fairly unobtrusive, specially if used as a NAS ... just stick it in a cupboard somewhere.
Lockable front Door too , might stop drives going walkies or little fingers pressing buttons.
You could fit a Gtx980t1/Fury in, for some virtualized/accelerated GPU help.

I was going to say it was too big at 210 x 305 x 456 mm (WxHxD)
But actually it isn't
The microserver is of course quite a bit smaller but wider
230x230x230
And the Thinkserver TS 140 actually is higher, a bit less wide, and not quite so deep
155x380x430

So actually considering it can take up to seven hds (height being it's main advantage), I think it's a good case.
Actually, the usb3 ports and audio are on the front side which isn't bad!

Unfortunately it won't be as unobtrusive as it could be as it's aluminium.
I don't think it matters that the drives aren't in removable drive bays - how often do you need to change disks in reality?

This is the great thing about percentages. If efficiency drops from 80% to 60% at your power usage and you are only drawing 30w at the socket, then at 60% efficiency you are losing 12w compared to losing 6w at 80%. Although it is a drop in efficiency of 20%, you're only talking about 6w extra loss. Less than an energy saving 60w bulb which is peanuts and a relatively small cost even at 24/7 running.

It has been said in other ways, but if you read any of the PSU group tests on computing sites or magazines, efficiency drops of quite markedly when PSU's are used at less than 20% of rated output. Really the PSU must be right-sized and bigger is often worse!

I agree with most of what you say. Although efficiency does drop of sharply at low loads it's not as bad as it appears. Generally for a 750w PSU you can get around 82 to 87% efficiency depending on your chosen model for a low range of power between 40 & 100 watts. As you say tho' using something like a 1kW pSU @ 3% load is just madness. I can't imagine why people would.

EDIT: It appears this is now a discontinued model so maybe a stock clearance.

It has been said in other ways, but if you read any of the PSU group tests on computing sites or magazines, efficiency drops of quite markedly when PSU's are used at less than 20% of rated output. I built my own home server and it runs 24/7. It has on-board graphics, dual NICs, one 3.5" disk and one 5" 2GB disk and a Core i3 processor. It runs typically at around 30w measured at the mains socket so after taking into account the PSU efficiency. To use a 1Kw PSU running at 3% load would be madness. I use a 120w PicoPSU and even that is a bit of overkill, but is needed as the system boots up. Any system with on-board graphics needs next to nothing so even something like the BeQuiet 300w PSU's are OTT and it is hard to find any conventional PSU with a sensible efficiency rating and lower power. My newer desktop PS's use around 20-25w at the plug and my older one 60w. Really the PSU must be right-sized and bigger is often worse!
frish
It's a good deal. I'll repeat that the amount of people that need a 1kw psu is small. People greatly overestimate what is needed. The most important thing is the quality/make of the PSU, so no generic brands if you want anything reliable. You generally want to go slightly over what is needed, but a good psu will output the stated wattage compared to generics that may not even supply the stated wattage. 1kw is extremely overkill, however if you feel it's worth the cost go for it. It's just that with continuing trends of power saving and the fact that most even high end systems don't need 1kw means that it may be more suited to step down to something smaller. I don't see those trends changing since portability is becoming more popular where power efficiency is important. It won't do any harm of course.

If your buying this because you want an extra 2-8fps in gaming then you seriously need to look at the rest of your rig first.
My pc has 8gb of DDR2, yes 2 not 3 or 4. it doesnt affect my games because the rest of the hardware is more than enough to achieve 60fps in most games. the few games i cant is because of the GPU and not the ram.
sure as hell dont need DDR3 or DDR4 for gaming. 8gb+ of any ram greater than DDR2 is enough. although any new mobo now will be DDR3 or higher

Not sure what good this is. You would buy DDR4 because it's what your motherboard needs. I doubt anyone is going to buy a new CPU and motherboard just to benefit from memory advancements.

As shown previously. If you do have other bottlenecks like the CPU/GPU and even storage, memory speed might not give you any higher FPS. It also depends on the game.
