This is the OC.
Only 4.1GHz?

WEAK

I have my 3570k clocked at 4.5GHz but only due to temperatures while, once I get The Kraken x60 big boy cooler I'll probably do 4.7/4.8.

Too bad games don't really have support for anything over 4 cores. That's the only think stopping me from a 6 core processor.

Finally 90% Complete and Functional - Black Cat's PC

Well I finally got it 90% completed. Phase 1 is complete, and Phase 2 preparations are underway pending tax return.

System Final Specs:
-16Gb Gskill DDR4 3000 SDRAM (More ram than you can shake a single RAM stick at )
- EVGA X99 Quad-SLi Motherboard LGA 2011v3 Socket
- Intel 5930k Core i7 6 Core 3.5GHz processor
- EVGA 1200 Platinum PSU (93% efficiency)
- Samsung 850 Pro 256Gb SSD (Lightning fast)
- Windows 10 Technical Preview OS
- EVGA Superclocked GTX 980 4Gb Graphics Card

It currently has all of the above minus the graphics card, I am borrowing an ATI POS from a friend, and it's throwing out a ton of heat and doesn't do my system justice lol. But for now it's a means to an end till Phase 2 completes.

Phase 2:
- Liquid Cooling for CPU
- Possible upgrade to an 8 Core Intel 5960X CPU @ 3.0GHz
- Double RAM up to 32Gb (Same stuff I have)
- Swap out the graphics card for the GTX980

I can't believe you put that together without liquid cooling (yet).

Congrats. You're the first on here (that I know of) to make the transition to DDR4. Although it's got some benefits, from what I've read for the average user there's nothing to be gained. Right now the noticeable benefits of DDR4 over DDR3 are net 0, except that you're forced to use it with the newer CPUs.

DDR4 actually has higher latency rates (are slower) than the best DDR3 chips. Latencies are some where in the neighborhood of 15 to 16 for DDR4 vs 8 to 9 for a good DDR3 chip. It looks like the Gskill DDR4 that you have is at a latency of 15 with numbers of: 15-15-15-35.

I recently did a bit of research into this before upgrading my office laptop from 4GB @ 1600 MHz (11-11-11-28) to 8GB @ 1600 MHz (9-9-9-24)

The Frequency (Bandwidth) to Latency (Speed) relationship is inversely proportional. You sacrifice one for the other. I'd rather have faster RAM with a lower CAS latency than a higher frequency.

To make an apples to apples comparison and measure the true latency you have to convert to nanoseconds, just like the quarter mile time in my sig.

Here's the formula:

(CAS / Frequency (MHz)) × 1000 = X ns

The real Frequency rate is half the listed rate where, for example, 1600 Mhz is really 800 Mhz (1600 is the double in DDR).

For example, I'll compare my 16 GB DDR3 to your 16 GB DDR4.

DDR3 @ 2133 Mhz:

(10 / 1066 ) x 1000 = 9.38 ns

DDR4 @ 2400 Mhz:

(15 / 1200) x 1000 = 12.5 ns

My DDR3 RAM is 3.12 ns faster than your DDR4 ... As I said, net difference is so insignificant as to be near zero.

Here's the bigger difference:

16GB G.Skill DDR4 at 15-15-15-35 sells for $290
16GB Mushkin DDR3 at 10-12-12-28 sells for $77

If you're interested there's some interesting reading here: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/28...ency-frequency

I'm curious what your previous system specks were? What are you upgrading from?

I'm also curious what you plan to do with all that computing power? Is it a gaming rig? If so what do you play?

I doubt that for other than bragging rights you're going to need more than the 16GB you have now or a CPU with more cores. IMHO you'd be wasting your money to buy more RAM.

When talking about making your PC perform, as far as the RAM goes, just buy decent name brand memory, and enough of it to do what you need to do.
BTW, Nice monitor / small TV. What are your thoughts on Windows 10? I see that Microsoft will offer it for free for a year.

I'm looking to upgrade mine or add a second monitor some time this year. I'm also looking at the same GPU that you mentioned.

My rig...



I have a bit of a classic. I have computers that are newer in my house but they really don't hold a candle to my HP Workstation XW9400

It is a dual (x2) AMD Opteron 2220SE Dual Core (so I have quad cores between two CPUs)
16GB of RAM (8GB allocated per processor)
250GB 10K SATA Hard Drive
Nvidia Quadro FX5800
FACTORY liquid cooling
Assembled in 2009

I wouldn't mind changing out the Nvidia with something else but I play Battlefield 2, which is an older game and want to make sure it continues to work.

Thanks Ron, yeah it's a beast alright.

DDR4 is great because it's low voltage, and although the latency is higher on the timings, it's honestly not something you're going to really notice, and with 16Gb it's like being stabbed with a cotton swab, no big deal lol.

Meh no real need for liquid cooling on it as it sits, all the components I have in there right now are top of the line in both performance and efficiency, considering that my RAM is running at 1.25 volts, I could OC it and drop the timings, but it's fast enough for me as is. I really reap the rewards from the processor though, mmm LGA 2011v3 is good stuff. I'll upgrade to liquid cooling if I decide to overclock it, but right now the max I've seen the CPU hit while playing Battlefield 4 and World of Tanks on max was 42C, which is well below my comfort level of 65C, which is inherently below Intel's comfort level of 100C, so for $28 bucks that fan/heatsink combo is paying for itself already, and it's very lightweight, not to mention this case can breathe very well and I have the cables routed for optimum air flow.

It's basically gaming rig right now, but I might try to run some type of server off it in the future like a voice server or something.

Games I play currently:
- Battlefield 4
- Counter Strike Global Offensive
- World of Tanks
- Starcraft II

I'm really excited for the integration that's about to go down on Windows 10 so I can play PC games with XBOX users and vis versa, this is going to revolutionize and revitalize PC gaming again. I can't wait for GTA V to come out on PC in 4K resolution so I can get a 4k TV and burn my eyes from playing it too much lol.

I upgraded from my old gaming rig, I loved that thing but it sold to a good home and I still do regular check-ups and tech support for it The guy is a good friend of mine and owns a 97 sport with 25k miles on it. Anywho here were the specs:

- 8Gb of OCz Reaper RAM 5-5-5-15 (fast enough for ya? ) Had this machine since 2007 till last year.
- EVGA 780i Triple SLi motherboard
- EVGA GTX560 graphics card
- 680W Apevia Iceburg PSU
- Western Digital Velociraptor 10k RPM drive
- Windows 7
- Intel Core2Quad Q6600 Quad-Core processor

PM me if you play any of those and want to frag together.

The i7 47xx chips are just a bit faster, clock for clock.

I just realized I'm only running at 4.1GHz; something changed, lol.

I've got one piece of software that won't run at 4.6GHz; it's a dvd ripper, lol.
Every time I run it it ends up crashing "Due to Overclocking!!"

The bios then cranks it back a notch, and reboots; nicer than the old days.

I don't think that benchmark can read turbo speed, I got mine to 4.8 with no problems but put it back to 4.6 for constant use because... well.. 4.6.

Nice, lol.

This processor won't clock that high stably; or I haven't found the combo yet.

Flawed benchmark.

I just realize I get docked a ton of points because it doesn't factor SLI/Crossfire and I lose a ton of points because my main "harddrive" is only 119gb. When my main storage is 4TB 7200RPM.

Chris's hard drive score spanks all of ours cause he's on a 1TB mechanical hard drive.

My computer works good enough for me. I game on 6.2 Megapixels

My driving is a constant struggle between wanting good gas mileage and driving like I'm Mario Andretti.

It's also a very fast writing 1TB hard drive, this computer is too old for my wife and my own personal needs and hobbies, this computer is getting seriously updated in a few months.

I've outgrown my processor, board and graphics card.

So I'll be replacing the board , i7 5960x 8 core 3.0ghz, 64GB ram, ax1500i power supply, Nvidia quadro k6000 12GB, 2 samsung 1TB SSDs one for each operating platform, 2 wd black 4TB storage drives one for each platform, etc... I feel extremely lazy for not updating a few areas sooner.

I was thinking the same thing. That's truly a money's no object build...

The quadro k6000 12GB alone is a $4,000 GPU card.

What do you plan to do with it? Run three 55" 4K monitors @ 4K simultaneously? 3D Modeling? Professional animations? CAD work?

Have you considered the TITAN-Z for a mere $3K vs $4K for the Quadro?

Yes, we know. Her job has been affording for us a lot of opportunities to grow, mentally by going back to school and learning new skills, physically with our house, vehicles, and gun hobbies, health with new benefits we previously could not afford, and peace of mind having real savings, being debt free, and being able to pursue our hiking, camping, fishing, and expedition trail riding hobbies.

We are finally in a decent place in our lives, we are even considering trying to have children in the next year. All of our vehicles need our time to get them where we want them to be, but with my broken wrist I have to wait until after I heal to physically perform the tasks, and after the wedding to get around to them.

We are getting married officially in March on our 8 year anniversary together, some state have considered us common law married by definition already (except the taxes). We are going on vacation up in the mountains for a week to get away from it all.

We run two 65" Mitsubishi DLP TV's, we do some 3D modeling, I do some Cad work, rendering, I also am tinkering with tuning and mapping lately, she does a lot of programming, editing, marketing, and photoshop. And it must do those processes while streaming media as we "watch" tv/news, stream constant audio, etc...

Yes we've been doing a lot lately. Our current machine is being pushed, and hiccups more and more as we grow. We are considering the Titan-Z as well due entirely because of the $1k difference in price.

Well that's the long and short of it, now I'll go back to work.

That's cool Chris, it sounds like things are really going well for you and your family. Congrats on your upcoming wedding.

That must be amazing computing with two 65" TVs for monitors. That's some serious workspace!

It sounds like you could write a good portion of that build off as a business expense or an un-reimbursed work expense.

Large monitors are great, until you have to turn your head to focus on every window; it gets worse from there.

I find three or four 24" monitors are better than two large ones; you separate the windows by tasks, and it gets easier.

Playing games on a 65" 3dtv in 3d mode is incredible; but will make most people barf, lol. (alll my friends, anyway. )
