Maybe best to put up a WTB thread if you're buying
Haha, don't flatter yourself dude, your offers are in the for sale thread for all to see.........
I reckon if you put a wanted ad for an X79 board for $300pp, you might have some people come out of the dark.
Ty, can anyone else confirm?
Yes pc3l works.
Please post your experiences with the NVME drive Sonic - I'm tempted to do the same with my new system when it arrives.
what clocks are people getting these to?
How would it go verse my 3960x?
ffs, read the OP - these aren't OC'able
your 3960X will crap all over them in anything less than their c/t count, particularly games
why do that when people like you will answer for me
I skimmed over OP but missed the locked multiplier.
Our not so secret little secret is out boys!
Prepare for and even higher premium on X79 boards.
It'll be forever before I finish my build
Hm, didn't see that coming. There was no beautiful write-up about building an X5650 / X5670-based X58 rig when those prices started to drop, yet they could be OC'd to ~4.5ghz easily and even today they can hold their own against Skylake.
And yeah, if any of the wholesalers still have new-old-stock of the AsRock boards, particularly the one mentioned in the article, they'll be laughing all the way to the bank
This page was great.
Good for people thinking they can get a cheap gaming rig out of it
Thank god... I bought all the dual boards.. I wanted already..
you could sell them all and buy a Rolls Royce and a few houses.
Heh, I think I'll be waiting a while longer!
I just ordered one of these and a Gigabyte x79 UP4 board, it's not going to be faster than my 4770K obviously but what I am looking to do is run a VM and pass an extra GPU through to it so my partner can VNC into the VM and do some graphics work as her MacBook is pretty crap at that.
Hopefully it will all work
VNC is super laggy - GPU isn't going to help that as basically it captures an image of the screen and compresses it for each frame. RDP is slightly better, but still won't be a smooth experience.
I have set it up on my current system just using a VMWare Windows install and using it is almost 1:1 for speed, it's just slow if I am using Unreal Engine and she is editing a video, my Fury doesn't like it too much (still faster than her Mac lol).
The computers are all connected via Gigabit LAN so I think that helps the VNC connections. I will give RDP a go though, see if it's better....
The compression on RDP is much more efficient than VNC. VNC uses quite a lot of processing power just to compress the stream.
Splashtop is really good for remote desktop streaming though.
Cool, I will give them both a go. Once thing that is annoying is if you are using something like Unreal Engine in the VM through VNC, the mouse doesn't capture correctly so when you preview the game and move the mouse it can go outside the viewport and stops moving the character.
Anyway, that's a bit off topic, I will try RDP and Splashtop. Cheers
