Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 17 hours ago

Technically in a good system not every speaker is full range, full range meaning all the human can hear. You'd want dedicated lows, mids, highs. In the high end systems you'll get speakers in between those mid/highs low/mids etc. I had a buddy that had ~$15,000 in audio equipment in his competition car. Could hear every single note crystal clear from every direction. Some speakers hit so low you can't even hear them. You feel them.

I use z506 for my computer as its just for blasting music/playing racing games. I use headsets for everything else. I don't think you'll be dissapointed in the z313's, but my z506 get disorted when cranked past ~50-60% they are plenty loud though. I'll say they are good enough for their purpose, don't expect mind boggling audio quality lol. If you want to use them for "audiophile" tier listening of music and such you'll need to increase your budget to $200-400

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 18 hours ago

I would go for something like this if your budget is strict. The cpu is better, you don't need an aftermarket cooler but if you want one for looks you can use the one listed and switch the fan to a black/red one for the rest of the parts. I swapped your selected GPU out as the ACX line from EVGA had issues, and is being replaced within a couple months with iCX coolers. Swapped the thermal paste for some better stuff. Kept your wireless card even though I agree with the other comment you should try to go wired. I added a better PSU, keyboard and mouse. Comes out a little over what you had before but budget depending can be tweaked in either direction. Budget permitting I would also recommend a 240/250gb SSD at minimum.

Forum Topic "Motherboard CPU combo"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 21 hours ago

6800k is like %8 faster than the 5820k but is ~$30 more. Plus its newer. The 2011-3 will probably be killed off before 7th gen enthusiast chips hit so might as well go most recent.

Oh, if you're planning to overclock both the 5820k and 6800k will basically be identical when "maxed out". But if you aren't overclocking or lightly overclocking the 6800k wins. Basically the 5820k can clock a bit higher but matches the 6800ks performance when clocked ~0.3ghz higher so it all balances out.

A modestly clocked 6800k @ 4.0 will be competing with some aggressively clocked 5820ks.

A custom water loop will cost you like $300-$400 in itself, on the low end. Just an fyi

CPU block -$50-100 Radiator- $50-120 Reservoir-$40-150 Pump-$75 Fittings- ~$80 Lines-$20-50 depending on hard/soft

Thats excluding fans for radiator, coolant, sensors, and doesn't account for if you want to watercool the GPU also. Basically add another $150 per addiontal item cooled past the first.

Schiit is awesome, and their driver names are hilarious. "Im Fulla Schiit"

I have to partially disagree with you on the soundcard portion though, some motherboards have subpar audio to begin with and you can improve audio quality that way. With headphones like these that aren't hard to move you don't really need a dac/amp. It wouldn't hurt but its not required. I need to upgrade to a pair of good high impedance cans for music and get a new amp actually speaking of that. I don't use an amp with my sennheisers while gaming though fwiw.

By the way what's your opinion about the Corsair Case. I really like the look but have read some bad reviews against it, such as difficult assembly for first time builders, difficult wiring, fewer than necessary mobo standoffs etc. Did you experience any of these issues?

Spend $20 more and avoid the Spec series. You might be fine with a semi/fully modular PSU for cable routing but therwise its a nightmare. The side of the case is bulging on my brothers because we had to force it on (non-modular PSU). The case was missing standoffs, I believe 2. It is also such a tight squeeze that you won't be able to run the top 2 fans unless you have a low profile cpu cooler or an aio. I got my brother the Spec-01 for like $17 new but had it been retail price and knowing what I do now/built in it I would personally pass.

No, you linked to a build with an i5-6600k. Unhandybirch656 is saying to get a 7600k. If you are building new and can afford the extra $30-40 going 7th gen would cost there is no reason to go 6th gen. With that said, if you are already on 6th gen there is really no reason to upgrade to 7th gen.

Forum Topic "Need a tower within $4k for gaming/solidworks/rendering"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 2 points 6 days ago

Oh and the only reason I recommended a 5th gen to you is because the 6th gen processors have been called lousy overclockers. If a processor will do what you need it to (I am sure all 5800/6800+ could just a matter of rendering times) then you should be fine. You could look up Intel CPU rendering times benchmark and there's a chart that shows the fastest to slowest.

Forum Topic "Need a tower within $4k for gaming/solidworks/rendering"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 2 points 6 days ago

Something to consider is that a user will be more likely to leave a review if a product doesnt work. You will probably see alot of reviews for PC components not working from every manufacturer. Another thing to consider is the user could have been messing the boards up themselves and didn't know. I had a buddy RMA his motherboard 3 times before he asked for help and found out he was shorting it out by leaving a standoff in that was supposed to be removed and it was touching the board me circuits.

There isnt really a way to check the boars without powering it up sadly. Some people put everything together and power it ourside the case before buttoning everything up.

As for the motherboard I wouldnt personally spend the extra money on the MSI Godlike, I believe it was $500 ish last I checked.

The 7th gen enthusiast chips likely will not be X99 compatible anymore, they usually only last for 2 generations. X79 was before X99. I dont know what they will move to, or if they are changing but I wouldnt count on being able to use a newer one. Its the issue with these systems if you get caught in the middle of a cycle you have to decide if its worth waiting for sonething that isnt even announced or not. There may be information out there regarding whether they are changing socket types or whatever the process will be but I doubt there are hard,facts on performance.

Forum Topic "Need a tower within $4k for gaming/solidworks/rendering"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 2 points 7 days ago

So the x99 chipset, only supports the CPUs above x700? I mean, with the 6th generation, it is all that is above 6700k because that is the point when you get more than 4 cores. Is that correct? But is the issue in the fact that the x99 and 4-core CPU will not work at all together, or is the issue in the fact that this combination simply can not take advantage of one another.

The X99 chipset supports x800+ processors for Haswell-E(5820k, 5930k, and 5960x) and Broadwell-E (6800k, 6850k, 6900k, 6950x). It isn't x700+ because for instance I have a 4790k that is LGA 1150 as opposed to X99's LGA 2011-3. The number following the LGA is how many pins the processors have, so trying to use a processor with the wrong number of pins will not work. Therefore when you ask if a 4 core/6700k (LGA 1151) would work with X99 the answer is no, it wouldn't fit.

Finally, Kaby Lake did not release any x>4cores CPUs at this point yet, correct?

The way Intel does this is they release the "consumer" tier chips for the newest generation first, and then later in that cycle they release the "Enthusiast" tier chips for the previous cycle under the current generation. So we just came off Sky Lake consumer chips and we got Kaby Lake consumer chips. Next we will see Sky Lake enthusiast chips but they won't be 6xxx anymore, they will be 7800+ (historically). For instance the 6800k-6950x are not Sky Lake processors even though all the lower 6xxx are. The 6800k-6950x are Broadwell-E which was the lower tier 5th generation chips.

There are some very high quality air coolers out there no doubt, I haven't built a computer in about 2 years but I went with a high end air cooler at the time. My current build will be custom looped so I havent really paid much attention to all the new coolers. If you find an air cooler you like, it gets great reviews, and fits 2011-3 sockets I'm sure you'd be happy with the results. Just make sure you get a good thermal paste.

The memory you selected is not supported by that motherboard. The 3200mhz RAM will be downclocked to 2400.

CPU: The 5960X is expensive, but is easily capable of overclocking to 4.5ghz stable. This is one of the fastest Non-Xeon rendering CPU's and has some of the best overclocking results. You could also go with the 6900k which to my knowledge doesn't overclock quite as well (4.3ghz area?) but both should be of about equal performance when overclocked. The 6900k is newer and is slightly faster out of the box. Both are in the same price area of $1,000

CPU Cooler: The NZXT Kraken X62 has some of the best results in closed loop liquid cooling. It also loos good. Will really compliment the overclocking of the 5960X.

Motherboard: The MSI X99 Titanium has shown to overclock CPU's slightly better than many of its competitors. It also has many great features and has built in wireless connectivity. (I own this board)

Memory/RAM: It is expensive but Dominator Platinum is some of the best, this specific model has significantly lower latency than the standard RAM you see, it is CAS 10 as opposed to the typical CAS 15/16. 64gb may be overkill, if so you can always drop it down to 32. I like filling all the memory slots as X99 supports quad channel memory. 64gb is also the max supported memory of the 5960X.

Storage: Lots of SSD space with some of the fastest SSD's on the market, in case you do large file transfers with your renderings.

GPU: Just a GTX 1080. Best consumer gaming graphics card. You could probably get a Titan X Pascal in the build ($1300) if you cut CPU, RAM, and storage costs but not sure you will see huge gains going this route.

Case: The 750D is a beautiful, clean professional case that also has a side window to see the goods. Room for 3 more SSD's and 5 more HDD's inside. Option to include an optical drive if you need one.

PSU: The SeaSonic 750w Prime has the best efficiency rating of 80+ Titanium, JonnyGuru who is a notorious PSU reviewer gave this line from SeaSonic a 10/10 across the board. (I also own this)

When you ask about a monitor what are you looking for, siz, resolution, ultrawide? Geared more towards gaming, or professional use? A mix of both?

I would really appreciate a good explanation on what i need when it comes to z170, z270, and x99 chipsets

I would say X99 platform as it will handle your workloads better with higher core counts and rendering capabilities, and will still be more than enough for gaming.

How about a quality closed loop water cooler to start since you plan to heavily OC the CPU?
