Description

Built Originally in 2010, upgraded along the way.. system and setup is constantly changing

quirks

  1. hard drives need work maybe thinking upgading in the nearish future

    2 samsung 250gb in raid0 2 WD black 2TB 2 WD Green 6TB

  2. Power Supply fan is super loud and the system would be pretty quiet otherwise

    not sure if i wanna replace the fan voiding the warranty or to reroll a different PSU

Instant +1 for using a CPU to the maximum of it's potential over time! :D

Love seeing builds with old powerful CPUs paired up with relatively modern parts. Makes me feel good about my chances of making my 5820k last 5 years.

yea the enthusiast components last a little while, it benches similarly to a current stock 4790k.. i take some sort of pride from keeping the same platform. Much thanks for the appreciation

I hope to have the same kind of pride in a number of years as well. There's just some good feeling about resisting that strong strong need to upgrade..

for the meantime upgrading the cpu will give kind of minimal gains with a rather large cost to upgrade as the performance of cpus havent jumped in performance too too much. stick with the platform and upgrade other components i'd say

Agreed. Only thing that would make me swap CPUs is if some new form of computing comes out at a reasonable price that doubles or triples my CPUs strength. That's the only thing that'd make me even consider tbh.

You don't need a 1300W PSU for that rig. That's beyond overkill.

ghetto monitor stands. +1 but -1 for ergonomics.

+1 again for long term usage.

How old are those SSDs?

a year or two

They likely are still using the old controller. That is good. The new V300s are completely crap and the slowest/worst SSD you can buy.

oh, these ssds are crap... they are just a little faster than mechanical hard drives when i bench them... thus why i want to replace them
