Gaming and home use
How is that AMD 2700 holding out for you? I’m thinking about going with the 2700x in my next build.
The 2700 is running Great! As long as you don’t use the stock cooler with the 2700x you will be fine
I disagree, the stock cooler on the 2700X is a Wraith Prism, which cools better than the Wraith Spire on the 2700.
Yeah the stock cooler is OK temps run under load around 65 Celsius but the noise level compared to the Noctua NH D15 is silent compared to the stock cooler and I like my PC to be very quietBut if you don’t mind the extra noise stock cooler will be fine
I’m actually thinking of using the Noctua NH-L9i because it’s a good fit for the case I’m going to be using (velka 3 from velkase). Do you think it will be a powerful enough cooler for the cpu? I think it will but a second input would be awesome.
The NH-L9a has a slighty larger heatsink, IIRC. Can't give a source for that info though
Why the extra parts and money?
The 2600 is faster in games than 2700. You must not be a 1080p user eh?
For a budget build with high settings and 60fps locked 1080p I was thinking this for my brother (if he ever makes good financial decisions):
At the time of purchase it was Christmas Black Friday sale and all the 2600s were sold out and I got a good deal on the 2700
none of your comments are coherent nor do they make sense. Please research more and actually build more before you choose to copy paste your part list on peoples builds with your wrong opinion. No one really wants to work hard for the builds they post on here, build it and take the time to post it then have someone such as your self copy paste bs like this and try to start an argument based on your wrong choices and views. Please keep this type of behavior off of pcp and where it belongs on that console your stuck on.
