Yup for a lot of people 3800x is worth it over the 3700x.

I got a 2nd hand b350 gigabyte d3h motherboard for 80$ off ebay. Don't consider the a320 you'll want to overclock the 2600 to 3.9ghz at...

3900x is probably a better deal unless you really need the extra pcie lanes.
23/09/2019 - 17:28
The all core boost difference is higher. Base clock is 300mhz higher.
22/09/2019 - 13:57
For some people it's a better deal, depends how much speed you need.

Good ram for most people, better off spending money for faster cpu/gpu than ram.
12/08/2019 - 14:48
looks crappier in person.

I got the ryzen 2600 with the 1660ti version and I disconnected that fan because temps are fine without it. My pc has been up for 2 days...

the psu isn't the best but i don't see what's wrong with the case?
03/08/2019 - 21:15
yeah much better drive at this pricepoint, the 120Gb drive sacrifices a bit of speed because of the smaller number of flash chips, and will...

my 2600 system came with a 240Gb BX500 Crucial
31/07/2019 - 19:50
I have 3x BX500 240Gb drives for a similar reason.
30/07/2019 - 17:10
Good option if you don't want/need a discrete gpu, though if I were building a PC for mum I might use the dual core Athlon instead, or...
27/07/2019 - 17:37
had a look and they were doing something horribly wrong benchmarking the bx500(bad firmware?). My bx500 240Gb scores much better at least...

3600+better gpu/ssd/ram > 3700x with worse gpu/ram/ssd.

I have a seperate OS partition to my games partition and I find I only need 1.9Gb L1 cache to have a 80%+ hitrate on my OS partition. I...

maybe, with primocache you could dedicate 8-16Gb to a ramcache then it would be like windows is running from a ramdisk.
24/07/2019 - 05:09
would've been worth it though compared to a 80Mb/s Hard Disk.
18/07/2019 - 12:10
Only slightly outperform a qlc drive if they have a better controller. Only place they massively outperform them is sustained writes. Also...

my 240Gb QLC SSD can write more than 24Gb at full speed, your drive was probably throttling from too much heat not from lack of SLC cache....
14/07/2019 - 04:17
latency is a function of CAS and RAM frequency, slower shouldn't mean worse latency but it does in this case. Almost 50% worse latency with...
14/07/2019 - 01:38
The size of the slc write cache depends on the empty space * 10-20%. This means this ssd cane probably transfer up to and over 100Gb at a...
14/07/2019 - 01:02
1TB of mlc is about 2TB of QLC, meaning MLC has no chance to compete on price. Also the main benchmarks that matter for normal desktop...
14/07/2019 - 00:58
It's faster than any other brand including samsung for 1Q1T reads - which was what matters most for speed in normal desktop/gaming use. QLC...
11/07/2019 - 01:13
Yup much better single core performance and better multi despite losing 2 cores.
08/07/2019 - 13:07
You could use something like primocache to ram cache writes and perform trim before it even hits the ssd, should improve life a bit -...
13/06/2019 - 21:32
I just checked my SMART data for the drive and it says it's maximum lifetime temps were 85c in a well cooled case and that it's lost 3% of...

my bx500 gets up to 75c on heavy write load. That's the version without any ram cache though maybe that's the cause?
