Still available and, even though its only SATA III, not bad for £22 delivered.
Just got one. Thanks OP, great price and a good pick for those with M.2 slots that don't support the faster NVMe/ PCIe standard. I have an Intenso 2.5 inch external hard disk from many years back, still works fine. Heated.
If determined to get an 8 core, then personally I'd get the 10700K, a mild 5.0 GHz all core OC (combined with better memory latency) will run rings around this. Otherwise, a 10600K/KF for £180 is still the smarter buy.
10850k Not at all. With the 10850k just below a 10900k that is often the better CPU compared to the 11900k https://www.techpowerup.com/review/intel-core-i9-11900k/24.html The 10850k is the better buy over this unless you really need the (relatively limited) PCI 4.
Your own graphics card will wipe the flier with an integrated solution 99% of the time. As the new XE Intel I refracted solution is newer, it will support more need technologies, but these would be trial and error. If you use the 11900 and the 6900 GPU, you can sort out in time which performs better at what, eg the new igpu may well help out with Photoshop operations for example, where the 6900 wouldn't. The igpu will support Vulkan API, but the 690) won't. In general, however, the dedicated card will nearly always be better. Anything stronger than an Nvidia 1030 or so will be better as a rough guide.
The silent wings are the base fans no? They do better ones but more experience obviously
I have the SILENT BASE 600 and the fans aren't quiet, cable routes were irritating as well. It was cheap last year when everything was expensive so that's the plus side for me for this product. Heat for price not on case.
I believe they may be defective or the motherboard may not be able to DC control the fans properly. In my unit with the Pure Wings 140mm they are drop dead silent even running a RTX3070 inside and still keeping cool. They move a ton of air. I have the Steel Legend motherboard which has DC fan control and works great. Excellent case and great price OP.
Good price! I like this case but I didn’t find the stock fans particularly quiet even at the lowest dc voltage they could run at (before stopping). Swapped them out with two spare Noctua pwm fans I had and now it’s much better
You are as well getting in on the madness with spare cards laying around lol. Dont think the having 4Gb vram is much difference atm I gave in end of Feb/March and its paid me back for the RX 580 8Gb (£120) i bought and gamed on for the last year in the 2 lockdowns. Its telling me my profitability is approx £150 a month now, but i gave in at half that. Without BIOS flashes or anything, just a couple tweaks in settings i googled. This pos 1650 is £70/80 a month.
Aaaaaannd.... OOS. (poo)
I have one RX 570 4GB I bought nearly 2 years ago new for 100 quid, And another ex mining Sapphire one from a deal on here I got for 50 quid, To think they are potentially worth nearly 600 quid, As you say, Madness.
Even better spend a few quid more get the Series S to play at 120 FPS.
Madness, no use for mining and being scalped to desperate gamers.
Was looking at the Asus B560i motherboard, my only concern is the cooling, once the limit is removed it uses a lot of power although I heard you can pick the max power. My current cooler keeps the 6600k at 4.4ghz at 80c under stress tests and that's 95W.
Intel i5-11400F - No iGPU. With both the short/long term 65W TDP power limits increased to 210W, CPU performs much on par with a stock i5-11600K. Overclocking pointless for modern AMD/Intel CPUs, stock clocks are pushed very close to the limit with PBO/Turbo boost. Do not buy ASRock B560M-HDV (cheapest B560) if you plan to increase TDP limits to max out performance of i5-11400, no manual TDP option in bios, passively cooled VRMs will burn up on that board, buy £100+ B560 board with VRM heatsinks.
Intel i5-10400F (claim 2 free games from Intel) £125 Update BIOS: MSI B460M-A PRO bios
Worth upgrading to this from an i5 6600k? New motherboard and CPU is about £340 in total. Got a 1060 6gb GPU so not bothered about integrated graphics.
I was referring to the gtx 1650, not the 1050 ti, which as I said above is heavily underpowered and not a great choice for the £
I do think it blows it out the water mate. (y) When you start going in games and getting 20/30fps more, that's a huge difference. . If I could pick up a 970 for what they were going for prior i.e around £75/85 mark I'd get one over the 1050ti all day long, obviously providing power and physical size wasn't an issue
I don't think it blows it out of the water, it may be a bit faster (5-10% depending on the title), but like the rx570 that comes at an extra 120w in terms of power consumption. My daily gpu is currently the gtx 1650 gddr6 and for the 87w it pulls form the pcie-slot it packs a surprising punch. It's perfect for 1080p 60fps gaming, especially if you're power constrained.
Apparently, this is specced sufficiently low (especially memory) that it isn't viable to mine on it. Can't figure out why it should be so expensive though, if miners aren't snapping it up.
The mining craze has jacked up the price of everything, since there's a ton of people unable to buy a new card and so turning to the used market, leading to things like 1660 Supers selling for £350-400 on Ebay. It's nuts.
