It's already gone mad, memory used to be much cheaper than this. 16GB for $100 used to be no problem, but now there are little to no offerings at that price.

You can get good DDR3 RAM with 2x8Gb sticks for about $125. If your after gaming RAM with the best timings its upwards of $180-$200 for same quantity. You should be happy you dont have a high end gaming laptop. RAM for my laptop costs around $160 for some 2x8Gb sticks of  GSkill RIP Jaw with crappy 9-9-9-28 timings.

Every thing that uses flash memory has had its price go up since the Hynix plant fire and floods September last year and 90% of manufacturers use Hynix IC's. It's going to be like hard-drives (when WD got flooded) expect about a 9-12 month wait till cool off period for prices to drop down to the norm it was at before.

1 4TB WD drive

2 Gigabyte GTX 670's in SLI 

Asus ProV z77

LanBoy Air

Corsair TX850m

 


What are your temps running at those speeds on air?  I heard nothing but great things from Noctua and my 2600k was at 5.0 and felt it ran too hot using a Zalmann.  been thinking of replacing it with a Noctua.  We basically have the exact same setup minus the HD, I use all SSD's in RAID and store big crap on a NAS.

I was trying to nuke this thing at first lol

 

5.2 was stable until fairly recently (temps in the 70-78C)... it would crash in BF4 at random (I blame EA lol)... I dropped my OC to 5GHZ (63-68C) and now everything great.

 

It is of note that I keep my house fairly cool. (20C abouts)

LOL,I use to OC my old i7 to 4.5Ghz, then realize my Graphic card can never drive my CPU out of its idle state.

Right now I actually run my CPU at stock clock and turn my CPU fan way down so I can enjoy some music.

 

BF4 is a game I do not think my PC is able to handle. Since I am using NVIDIA card, I can not even fire up the game. I guess I will wait till I have 6G memory on my card, then buy the game.

 

 

P.S.

Anyone have tried the new DELL 4K monitor yet?

5.2 on what? Looped w/c'ing? I call bs if you have it on air unless you live in a 5-15'C ambient temperature zone.
post #1973 of 2231

For a budget CPU should I use:


AMD A10-5700 3.4Ghz Quad-Core Processor $128

 

or

 

AMD A10-5800K 3.8GHz Quad Core Processor $118

 

The 5800 has faster clock speed but what about core strength?

Yep. Hopeful when I overclock it won't over heat and burst to flames. Good thing the case I choose has a side window.

Get a good cooler, like a Enermax T40. It keeps my 4.5ghz 3570k cooler than my H100i ever did for some reason. :|
