This is how it ended after having a bad stick of ram and the Corsair psu die after three weeks of stock running.


to answer the rhetorical question in the title, yes unless you have a really nice x99 chip or cant afford.

Besides the actual benchmarks. The make or break is going to be the motherboards and pci-e lanes....ect. If the MB can meet my needs, it will more than likely be an 1800x. Fully prepared to get 6850k instead.

DAMN, mine is like half that.

Yes. The pic is a little misleading.

Parts have been completely determined. Some are on backorder. Pics coming soon. Maybe even some basic benchmarks?

Any benchmarks you like to see. Feel free to suggest. Keep it within the realm of free is the only caveat.

Keep in mind with this platform being completely new that there are issues and bugs to work out as the platform matures.

I am jealous

Lets wait and see how well I can get it to run first, aye ?

I would take it even if it ran like shit lol

some not canned games, like Planetside 2, some mmos like Tera or NW, and if you have them Total War warhammer, Civilization V, ARMA 3, Minecraft... basically cpu taxers

Tera, i can do. It was pretty easy to balance the min/max/ave within less than 11 12 frames of each other on a 8350.

I picked tera and NW as both are free, planetside 2 is free too. iirc mmos tend to be cpu hogs, but haven't seen anyone show numbers on how the chip handles them games yet.

I have been meaning to play my ninja chick more. I cant remember one that wasn't ? End up in a fight of 200 people and stuff starts screaming for mercy :) Real game testing

I was thinking one fleet battle in BGO even tho they capped the maps my 8350 struggles still. STO a few of the battles Such as the cystalline shard had issues. Tera the pegasus flight from map to map and any of the cities where lots of people gather for dungeons. Some the the Empire Earth struggled a bit with full maxed armies/populations. Riders of Icarus with draw distances and high populations. Arche Age ? I have yet to play Witcher 3 :) Still thinking about some of this. I have not really be enticed by many of the newer games in awhile.

MB Still on back order :(

Well ? It is built but had a bad stick of ram. Had to order more and return the first. Be a couple of weeks before serious benching. The case is a bit of a overkill but should let me do almost anything. Custom water cooling with large rads / Aio's whatever.
