Yea I see that now, and I would buy with caution like you are. Honestly, I only have my OS on their which is backed up on an HDD nearby. I haven't had any problems with it yet, but maybe some day I will - it has to die some time. If I had more spare change, I would've gone with an EVO or Pro and bought an EK nvme heatsink. The heatsink that comes with the Adata SX6000 is alright but I'd rather have something that's all gray.

It's pretty great for the cost, and I'm sure you can get it for even cheaper now. I've had it since January, and it has yet to fail or have any hiccups/slow-downs from what I've observed. With HWmonitor, I've yet to see it get hotter than 52 C. Sure it's not an EVO or a Pro from Samsung, but it works at the advertised speeds for read/write at 1000/800 mb/s

  • Greetings RomeThundaDome,
  • May I direct you to the forums for questions regarding compatibility for components? The PCPartPicker forum is a great way to reach others to help solve your computer questions.
  • https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/
  • For your matter at hand - yes, the I7-8700K is compatible with 3200 MHz RAM (and run at that frequency). You will need to find a motherboard that is compatible with 3200 MHz RAM (as you have stated you do). You will need to enter the BIOS in order to enable XMP profile in order to achieve the desired frequency. In the event that your motherboard has XMP profile enabled and is known throughout the community/ manufacturer's support website, you may need to update the motherboards BIOS. I hope this helped and you have a nice day.

Yea, with my previous PC I was getting 120-150 fps with 100 mods. Not very GPU/CPU demanding :P

Comment reply on Forum Topic "BIOS Flashing"

Depending on the board and what the support page of your BIOS upgrading instructions say, you may or may not have to upgrade to each version accordingly. If you require assistance in finding your motherboard manufacturer's website, please give the make and model of your motherboard. Generally, no you should not need to update your BIOS unless you need to. Instances where you will need to, but may not need to including excluding blah blah blah: ~Upgrading CPU ~Upgrading RAM (may need flash, shouldn't though - only if new ram comes that was previously incompatible with previous BIOS version) ~New Hardware requirements (so pretty much only CPU and RAM compatibility)

I'm assuming you really do need to flash the BIOS but in good faith... From "The Manufacturer" 1. Do you NEED to update your BIOS due to problems occurring during regular use? 2. If 'Yes' continue to step 3. If 'No' stop and do not flash the BIOS. 3. Backup your OS files. 4. Flash BIOS

7700K is noticably better than a 6700. It's worth it.

While there is no mention of Ryzen 7... allow me to help you.

From the author,

"I use my PC exclusively for gaming, so a high-clock, low-core processor is the right choice for me. If that ever changes, for example if games are optimised to utilise more cores, I have a pretty solid upgrade tree to climb."

"I like to think of the 7740X as a 7700K in a bigger package with better thermal properties."

"I would consider the 7740X a better overclocker than the 7700K."

"I did delid the CPU and it definitely helped my maximum temperatures at load. I got a 1-3c temperature difference on idle with a low of 22c and a 6-11c temperature drop on load."

TLDR; That's why.
