Petition for a bios update.

It is listed as 4xSATA 3Gb/s and 4xSATA 6Gb/s...

 

I'm not sure if I can get this locally though...

 

Really? Uggh... Now I want Seagate even more...

 

Better in terms of price/performance ratio? Lemme see...

 

Flashy... I think. Depends though on the price really

 

I don't think anybody is even selling anything from HIS, not to mention that seller...

 

I'll see to that

 

It's either a fan or liquid (I know it's pretty overkill for a non-oc pc)

 

I'll see to that too

 

Same as above

Xeon is safe. Just no overclocking. Intel has great support (same with AMD). It's consumer safe. Maybe a few features might not work with your motherboard that you choose like overclocking features being a server oriented CPU but other than that, they're identical. It's based off of the same Ivy Bridge architecture. It's not any different just because it's a server processor. The E3-1230V2 is nothing more than the desktop Ivy Bridge i7, just without an integrated GPU.

 

Two of the SATA 6.0GB/s (SATA III/SATA 3) ports aren't native. They use a separate controller which won't perform as well. Will cripple the performance. 7 series chipsets (Z77 at least) is two SATA 3 ports native and four SATA 2 ports native. Any extra is not native and runs off of another controller which will give weaker performance.

 

Order online.

 

I'd just get an SSD. In general use, you won't notice a difference. My games still boot up pretty fast from my 500GB HDD (not much stored on it though).

 

Don't worry, there are plenty of good computer cases.

 

GET IT FROM NEWEGG. You can get free shipping on most items. The other choice is Amazon which is free 5-8 day shipping for orders $25 or above.

 

Air cooling. A Hyper 212 EVO will even do fine.

a 500GB SSHD is $90 btw.

 

I don't see the advantage of 5 or 6 over 10.

(and mac doesn't support 5 or 6, unless I get a hardware controller.)

1TB HDD is $80 btw. The WD10EZEX which is a 1TB/platter drive. Performs better than their Caviar black drives right now due to the fact that WD hasn't released any 1TB/Platter WD Black drives yet.

For those of you in the future viewing, this, you won't see it when the promo/event ends. Anyways, Bruce Lee. wtf

 

LOL!

VaporX is nice but reviews have shown that it isn't the best feature cooling solution.

 

Interesting...

 

So just get as stock as possible 7870 and get an alternative cooling system? Or ditch the cooling system and get vaporx?

LIke it says, they want you to pronounce it ey-soos. But that in itself is also incorrect.

 

The foundation of the name ASUS is from the word "Pegasus". The founders wanted to be listed near the top of the phone book so they took the last four letters of the word "Pegasus" and got ASUS out of it. If we just chop off the Peg. You would pronounce it A(like letter A) sis(Asis). But because they were Asians. They pronounced it the Asian way.

 

So yeah. Ey-soos is the official pronunciation but ...whaever.

Asus representative said it was pronounced Asus like ey-soos.

 

Pegasus, which turned into Pegatron which is basically Asus.

Oh bowei. It's a miracle that you managed to write reviews and yet still can't comprehend my post re: my driving exp. All of that is based on my exp in Malaysia, where I'm actually from, not here in moscow where i can't even converse properly.

Bat **** insanity in saya no uta again, and loving it. Also, while quite obvious in hindsight i was still surprised at what happened at MC's other female friend. Also badass doctor w/ a sawn-off doible barrel shotgun ftw. And occult insanity where they make you queasy even peeking a look at them. This is getting better and better.

Although i feel as if the h scenes kind of intrude and pauses on the horrifying unknown aspect of it. Sure i know what MC is doing his with is an eldritch spawn, but still like MC said, a man can't help be aroused despite knowing that, and i feel confused when at one part the vn is scaring (and enjoying it) me with the unknown, and the next it's telling me to fap. Stop confusing me game!

Ditch extra cooling unless it's very good. MSi seems to do well in that aspect but IMO it's not worth the extra money. The card linked below is from a good manufacturer and uses good components.

....you can't just get a stock 7870 and get another coolign system. Some brands have those cooling system trademarks, some don't. The 7870's should still be a better card than the Nvidia price to price alternative right now.

Like I said, the SSHD 's speed is comparable to SSDs...

I miss everything of saya no uta

post #45730 of 126833

@Haiby

 

Seems E3 1230V2 is the same as 3570K... Let's see if I can get another alternate built based on E3-1230V2 tomorrow...

 

No international online shopping for me please...

 

How about ram memory? Seems like it's a cheap alternative to SSD

 

Air cooling as in fan is it?

 

@Bowei

 

Thank you. You understand how dreadful international shipping is here

What do you mean by the same?

 

Yeah, newegg doesn't do internationale.

 

I am wary still as half our prices wont' be nearly the same as prices in Malaysian, not to mention customs if there are any and taxes and shipping in country.

 

This is why I am not offering any specific links or parts. Because obviously I can't read malaysian or find anything in malaysian, have no idea about currency and your in country shipping or taxation policy and also I know prices and part availbility are much different and that you probably need to buy from many sites.

The E3-1230V2 and 3570K are not the same. The 3570K has an unlocked multiplier and no hyperthreading. The 1230V2 is the exact opposite, with an unlocked multiplier but hyperthreading. (and a few extra features probably like VT-d or trusted execution. Too lazy to check). I think your choices are the i5-3330 or the Xeon E3-1230 V2.

 

Why?

 

RAMDisk you're going to need a lot of RAM. 16GB min so you have 8GB RAM and 8GB RAMDisk. Remember, you need 3rd party software for that and it takes time to load things into RAM, which means that loading time is basically limited by your hard drive.

 

That's different. You also use fans in water cooling. You need fans on the radiator. Running it passive won't do you much good.

@International shipping

 

Amazon. I don't know what your local stores have.

Well, the seller lists them at the same price. E3-1230V2 = i5 3570K. If I can get a cheaper mobo for the Xeon, I may get the Xeon build instead

 

Dang...

 

Basically, it's RM=$*3.3

 

@Haiby

 

I forgot to ask about the mobo :

So I should just get any mobo with 2xSATA3 and 4xSATA2, since any more than that, the performance would be reduced?
