I got my tax return today
Anyone know where to source the Corsair LGA1700 retro fit kits in AUS? Has anyone fitted a Corsair water cooler to their LGA 1700 build as yet?
I did a search and found a few vendors, but most were charging $12-15 for the kit and $15-20 for shipping (ridiculous for 4 stand off screws).
I'm buying my 12th gen gear from PLE, so they said they could source the kit for $15 and then include it in my existing pre-order, so not to pay additional shipping on top.
They did state it would have to be ordered in from their supplier, but I'm waiting for my cpu, ram and mobo to come in anyway, so will get it in one delivery.
Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.
Could you link me with any suppliers you have found?
dunno if there are different kits, just had a quick google
Yep those are the ones, just ensure the Model no is the same: CW-8960091
Thanks mate, yep have ordered from here as they seems to be cheapest & should get it tomorrow.
Just got email back from PCCASEGEAR - Noctua 1700 bracket plate. NO ETA on them.
I guess I have to contact Noctua official website and see what they can do.
still not going intel.
the percentage differnce in gaming vs my systems is small. oh whoo hoo its 5-10% faster, but when already getting 120+fps max no difference lol.
also 4000c15 DDR4 vs 5200c36 DDR5, hardly seems comparible. not yet anyway.
kudos to intel on gains, end of the day if intel and AMD are battling, and leapfroging, we the consumer are the winners (except on price, fuck you intel)
use to be crazy to buy a $500-600 motherboard, that was extreme top end.
now top end is 1.5-2k, LOL.
The whole gaming thing is irrelevant. I’m betting nobody in this thread games at 1080P.
The motherboard prices are not set by Intel, supply and demand is what dictates pricing. It is absolutely not right but this is the situation facing the world today. You could argue that Intel prices are actually better than AMD.
When the GPU is the main bottleneck in most games, then the percentage difference will always be quite small.
I'm running a 8700K @ 5GHz and a 3070 Ti on a 3440 x 1440 monitor, I'm considering the 12600K but I think the actual gains for gaming will be quite small. Maybe 20% tops in CPU bound scenarios, most of the time it would be under 10%. With current mobo and DDR5 pricing and, I might just sit out this gen. Or wait until prices come down to a reasonable level.
If you a gamer, the price to performance gain is not good versus 8700k
Gamer Meld rated his top choices for atx z690 mobos and here's his spreadsheet: https://imgur.com/a/zlMx7On
Might be a handy reference for some
I started testing tonight on a single stage. Just tuning P cores atm.
This is with my 'test if its broken ram', might put my B Dies in tomorrow.
5300 @ 1.175v
CPU-Z ST 863.5 MT 12186.6
Power Draw, 141W
Temperature, something below 0.
5600 @ 1.350v
CPUZ-Z ST 912.4 MT 12677.6
Power Draw, 210W
Temperature, max core temperature around 19degC
looks like the diy phase working good
Zarok77 what ddr5 kit did you get?
Just waiting to see what's available, very limited availability atm . Tbh not even know if a ddr5 kit would be better than a good dual rank ddr4 but tech moving forward fast
are you thinking to get 12th gen mate ?
12600k is pretty nice cpu
