yes its comparable. It can support all of these sockets: AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2, FM2+, LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156
I would keep the Cryorig m9i. It is a very good cooler and it will be more than enough for you to OC your i7. You might not get all the "juice" out of your CPU but you can still achieve some decent clock speed.
Also AIO have a tendency to leak and degrade with time, which will decrease its performance
I dont think its worth it tho. You already paid for it
is it air cooled?
I had a 4160 pared with gtx960 for about 2 years. very decent CPU. Will run most games on 1080p
Thank you for the tip. it worked. Tearing is way less than it used to be!
yes i did. i reinstalled all the drivers too.
Rip cable management!
It sucks since xeon 1231 used to work or any lga 1150 motherboards
This is V5 so its comparable with lga 1151. However, I don't see anybody using it with h, b, or z series chip sets
I think 120 is the limit. i am sure its more than that:)
+1 for dota 2 wallpaper :)
How many fps do you get?
$259? Why there is no Microcenter near me :(
thank you everyone for your input. I just purchased 6500.
Go to jet .com before october 31st. When you register you can get 15% off your first order. Use TRIPLE15 code. I got gtx 1050ti for 136$ (it was 165)
If i were you get a cheap h100 mobo and i5-6500.i know its more expensive but it will worths it in along run. AMD is dead at the moment. Hopefully Zen will be good
then I guess i ****** up:)
i only paid $136 So i think its a good deal tho
i just did :(
I have a Pentium g4400 pared with GTX 950 and it is more than enough even for 2k resolution. However, I only play games like Dota 2 and CS:GO.
My roommate has i3-6100 and he plays GTA V and Dying light maxed out at 1080p.
If you are on a budget, get i3 now and then upgrade later to i5. GTX 1060 should be good enough for a couple of years.
I have a similar build for CS:GO and Dota 2 https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Tdpbt6
I would recommend you to change your GTX750Ti for GTX 950. You can find them cheap with the rebates. I got mine for $120 with $20 rebate. GTX 950 will outperform GTX750ti, so spend that extra $20 to get more fps
Also I would stick with intel. g4400 is a pretty good CPU for entry level gaming
Also PSU needs to be changed as it was mentioned by others
I can confirm that. I amcurrently using the G4400 pared with GTX950 and its pretty good for DOTA 2 and CS;Go even at 1440p. I am not going to update since I only play these 2 games. If you are planing to game AAA titles you might want to get i5-6500.
Nice build. That case is so hard to find:)
Your PSU alone is 1/2 price of my build lol
If you are not overcloking at all than skip on 6600k and get 6500+ any cheap h110 mobo
in this case any 500-650 80+ PSU will do. Just make sure it has enought pci cables for your GPU
This is what I would get. and I would just keep it this way. It is a very powerful PC. No upgrades will be necessary for year to come

I am not sure about that PSU. As far as I know most of the PSU that come with the cases are crap. If you are overcooking you should get a decent PSU.
I would get one of these
On a budget
Keep the same brand and capacity, but make sure to use it as a dual channel 2X8Gb at first. After that you can add 2 more 8Gb sticks, which will total 32bg. I personally think its way too much ram for gaming, unless you are doing some rendering. Just for gaming, 8Gb is more than enough
Everything looks great. Just add a decent PSU and maybe get 2x8Gb RAM. You can always add 2 more sticks later on. 6600k is a great CPU, it will last you for 3-4 years for sure. There are people who still use 2nd generation i5 for gaming!
Get 6600K with EVO 212 and Z170 motherboard. You can do pretty much anything, except maybe rendering 4k videos
reason I was asking is I found a guy who want to sell one of those Xeons for 150$. If it would fit in my mother board I would get it
Well I dont know prices in Canada. Overall seems good for low end gmaes like CS:GO, Dota, Starcraft and LOL. However, if you plan on playing GTA V, B4 you might not get what you want (1080p, high-utra, 70-80fps)
For the AAA titles, you might want to get at least an i3-6100 and gtx 960. IMO I think thas a sweet spot for 1080p gaming
Also check out youtube videos. There are many people benchmarking games with different hardware. Your build might be good enough for you
it depends on games you want to play. Most of the modern games will not run well on gtx 950.
Personally I would add an extra $20-30 and get gtx 960 ($170). Or the best waY IS TO FIND RX480 UNDER $200.
I dont know what your budget is, and what set up are you trying to build. If its a brand new build, i can make a part list for you if you like
Well, its ok for my needs. If you are planning to game on hight-ultra settings, you might want to get gtx 960. They are pretty close in price. Sometimes you can find 960 under $150.
Also you can wait, there might be gtx 1050, which should outperform 960
I will try to do that in the near future. Also I want to add couple of stickers from CS:GO
I thought about it, but I dont want to ruin the case. I know I will end up selling it at some point!
yeah, a bit overkill lol
under load temps
CS:GO 2560X1440p ultra - 102 fps on average
Dota 2 2560X1440p ultra - 81 fps on average
There is no way I can close the panel. Noctua cooler is way too wide. However, it looks better this way:)
anytime:) it should decrease your temps a bit
You might want to rotate your fans on the radiator fro the intake. Otherwise, great build
This is what i wanted to do. I have the same CPU cooler, but I could not find that case:(
Very jealous but still +1 :)
All your fans are setup as exhaust?? Why?
If you will flip the cpu cooler fans on the radiator it will have some fresh air from the outside of the case
This is how cable management should look like ! +1
what would you get for 39$
After doing some research I decided to go for Logitech g230. They are 39$ but based on research, these are the best you can get under 50$
I dont want to spend more than 35.
Are Sonys comfortable. I noticed that they are small
