They're very loud, especially when used in "Pull." Plus they're "Performance" editions, so i keep them at minimum speed then maybe up to 60% if i need it. lol
The Vardar's should be here tomorrow, tho.

I've considered hard tubing, but i'm probably going wait till I can afford something more interesting. Like, say stuffing an X99 or Z170 system into a modded CaseLabs pedestal.
Also, with the window panel having been replaced, there's no point in all that effort since I'm just going to be covering it up. lol
Totally forgot about the solid side panel....that makes sense then.....
X99 ftw! and caselabs....i so want one

X99 is still the way to go, IMO. Though I may be biased (X99 Deluxe owner), Skylake is underwhelming and Broadwell-E is probably going to be a pile of bird****, just like regular Broadwell on the Desktop was

Well, not to mention that many "entry level" X99 systems are cheaper than many upper-end Skylake systems, it's almost stupid not to go with X99.
I'm still interested to see where Broadwell-E goes, especially if the rumors of a 10-Core 7960X are true.
But I've still got time to save up for things.
But updates to my room and general work space come first. tongue.gif

It's not stupid to pick one platform over another, it's called "choices" and we should be thankful we have them.

I'm not saying it IS stupid, but considering the features and performance you get with X99 over Z170, and the costs currently involved with both pladforms, X99 can offer better value.

Just the idea alone of buying the cheapest motherboard possible to install an almost $400 CPU makes me squirm. You can get X99 low end Mobo and the cheapest memory for about the same price as my set up but I wouldn't do it myself. The lower end mobo may not have some nice to have features like better wifi or wired LAN, M2 and so on. To have the features I get and power delivery and quality you are looking at spending more money by a god bit. I upgraded from Z97 to Z170 because I got the mobo for free and it allowed me to go to 16 gigs of 2800 DDR4 as from 8 gigs of DDR3 2400, an I5 4670k to a 6600k and adding 2 x M2 slots and various other connector upgrades.

The point is people upgrade for a variety of reasons and a variety of needs and one platform over the other is subjective and not a written in stone, this is better than that. If I could upgrade to a quality X99 platform from what I have and it didn't cost me much I would do that too. If you have a price point with features you want and X99 don't fit then it don't fit.

More fully featured boards, better I/O, more PCI lanes, more ram slots making it less expensive to upgrade, not to mention right now (and for the last little while) the 5820K is actually cheaper than the 6700K, and it has two extra cores.

The cheapest DDR4 RAM right now is budget Crucial stuff. It's decent.

The cheapest X99 board right now is the Gigabyte X99 SLI -- a fantastic board!

the board price different between 2011-3 and Skylake is pretty minimal as well.

Not everyone that has skylake has an I7 for $320+. If your talking about just the 6700k vs a 5820k then that's a bit different, I see the point. Like I said, it just depends on the individual and what his budget, wants and needs are.


You said that it would be stupid to go with Skylake over X99 and that's a pretty broad statement. I think that's why you have had so much push-back on that statement

By the way, on Newegg, the lowest price ATX 1151 board is less than $80, the lowest price ATX 2011-v3 is $170, I would not say that's minimal although it appears the the 5820k is cheaper right now but that's probably because they running low on stock and are very popular. Another note the performance gains from z170 are there but the aren't that big and are mostly specific to tasks that will utilize all 6 cores.

The 5820k is an awesome CPU and I would love to have one but it doesn't mean the Z170 platform is not a good idea for those who fit in that category.
