    i7 4790k ram 1886 to i7 8700K ram 3000 is a nice upgrade getting a slight boost in most games using 1080ti.
    Gaming mainly feels smoother re-playing AC Origins/ Watchdogs 2/Ghost recon Wildlands a better gaming experience @4K fps has gone up but not buy much most games I am around 60fps settings mostly maxed no AA.

    you'd probably cover half the cost by selling the old stuff on ebay, even the faulty board, i upgraded my fiancee's rig to a ryzen 2700x, prime x470 and 16gb ddr4 3000 for £50 by selling off her old 3770k, sabertooth z77 and ram. very strange prices for older hardware on ebay.

    actually a OC 4790k is faster @gaming than any ryzen....

    Heck I wish I had a 4790k @5Ghz ......Bad azzmofo!

    something special about Devil's Canyon and gaming? ....I ain't figured that one out yet?

    ddr3 to? ....somehow it's just fast.

    You are so right, I was looking in to it the other day, I could still get £140 for my 3770k (£225 new), £70 for my P8Z77-M pro (£120 new), £60 for the ddr3 viper 16gb 2x8 gb (£60 new) I'm honestly thinking about selling it! it would make total sense to! then buy a Ryzen setup for only a few ££ more ;)

    Certainly, but I'd make sure you can cover the upgrade first, many chancers on eBay who end up damaging hardware when they get it or swapping identical broken parts. Had a few try chancing it before with me.

    No prob, nothing worse than budgeting sales cash and upgrading, then end up being forced to refund.

    Was a temp username as I lost access to insp1re email acc, then realised I'd posted a lot with the temp account so saved hassle and kept it.

    Yeah I know the score with fleabay, been using it for years, good advice anyway!

    just had a quick look:

    2600 >£155
    MSI AMD Ryzen AM4 X370 GAMING PLUS> £75
    Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX 16GB 2400MHz>£120

    This was just a quick look, still I'm sure it would be better than what I have for a minimal cost, and I'm 100% sure I could find better and cheaper parts if I spent a few hours on it!

    Not trying to hijack this thread sorry lol

    This one really rocks if applied correctly. If I recall correctly you may turn it like my C14S by mounting the clips in another direction, so the fans may blow in ANY direction you want. This is very nice if you need the air to go somewhere for airflow. Simply turn it around, mount it again and you're set. If mounted in a "wrong" direction, it takes you about 10 minutes of careful work to set it to another direction (including 5 mins for re-applying TIM).
    Personally I liked the C14S more, because it's a top-down-blower and cools the components next to it (RAM, electric motherboard components, etc.), too.

    Why only in the morning?
    Get awake with a light smell of coffee, including some plastic smell from a freshly bought Titan V CEO Edition.
    Get a kiss from your dearest, after that she whispers softly into your ear: "Your benchmarks are finished. Get up honey! If you have a score bigger than 12000 you get a "good morning blow***"!"
    After that you drive to work with your new laptop on the passenger seat, which erupts another smell of freshly bought hardware. Take a minute in your parking space to sniff on the fan holes to get a smell of i7 into your nose which lasts until you reach your office.
    Open the door to the server room to receive:
    a) a nice cold breeze of air flowing through your office, which is especially useful during those hot days.
    b) if you close your eyes and listen to the low-noised "SSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" of all those fans, imagine you sit at the beach and this "SSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHH" are the waves hitting the beach. Only need a hammock, right? :D
    !!=> Expert note: Try to change the fan behaviour and you MAY archieve a real wave-like up-and-down ... that's what RPM controlled fans are for, right? Wave noises in the server room. :p
    c) a smell of "Original Serverroom - by IT BOSS" will reach your nose during the next few minutes. In this moment you smell the raw performance of (PLACE PERF NUMBERS HERE) 134 cores, about 500GB of RAM and about 44TB HDD size. Do you smell it? YOU SMELL IT! YEAH, AND HOW YOU SMELL IT! POOOOOOOOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER! :D

    Then you drive home after work ends. Your laptop accompanies you. If you left it in your car and it was hot outside, your whole car will have the smell of your laptop. Nice, isn't it?
    You arrive at home and take a big sniff ... TIIIIITAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN :D

    Anyone finished? *grin*

    I remember my afternoon siesta's while waiting for a new kernel to compile every other day, was great while on the clock.
