Since the Fury X is a very small GPU I was going to move it over the portable build. The portable would have been similar to your needs such as long vacations. Laptops are fine for short vacations and I normally VPN into my home network and connect to my PC remotely. The main reason for the portable PC is that the Laptop is just to slow for my needs after a while.

I have thought about smaller “main” build, but I do need the HDD space so I guess a Mid-Tower is the smallest I’d go I guess, unless you have something in mind(?). M.2\SSD storage is more affordable and takes up nearly no space compared to old HDDs. The HDDs would mostly be for RAID 10 setups, but I suppose I could use a USB 3.0\3.1 RAID backup solution instead of having it inside the PC itself.
This is what i ended up doing as a everyday usage replacement for my main sig rig i ended up building a ITX Ryzen 7 1700 @ 3.8 (was the best performance ratio per watt i could achieve in such a small box on air) w/ 32gb of c14 3200 ram. Ran a short gtx1060 6gb with a single NVME ssd and two SATA ssd's. Definitely an upgrade at 1/5 space used and like 1/4 the wattage drawn... under full cpu and gpu load machine only pulls 360w from the wall, the i7/gtx780 pulled 920w. If i was more gaming oriented, i probably wouldn't have went ITX though as all the high end cards don't fit very easy and if they do, the rig is already almost micro atx size. That being said, running on a 1440p 60hz single monitor setup the gtx1060 does well enough.

Still built a threadripper with vega 64 like 6 months later for heavier tasks, but tbh i don't use it anywhere near as much as i do the ITX rig as it already handles most tasks with ease.

I have all my spinning media in a NAS that i store most things on, besides my normal usage stuff on the local SSD's. I'll say that is definitely a determining factor when deciding between ITX and MATX/ATX. With USB3.0 you have a good solution as you described though... if i were only working from one computer at a time with my data on the drives then your idea is exactly how i would be doing it too. If i were building a machine might now for all use and wanted a couple 3.5 HDD's and full size video cards, i'd probably go MATX. Only reason i say not to bother with full ATX is because most of the main stream platforms don't offer enough pci-e lanes to need all 6 or 7 slots anyways. Most of the real estate just goes to waste.

Man I have some ideas, but I’m trying to take the cheapest most effective route at this point. Then later I will upgrade to what I want. I guess I’m just putting builds together and waiting to see what’s worth it and what isn’t. Luckily I’m on a single PC as of right now. I’d definitely prefer to have a RAID 10 setup since I’m not the best when it comes to backups.

I’ve been checking out some PC cases. They seem to be limited to only 2x 2.5 HDD slots in most cases. I can use 6 (and more if I needed it) in my current case which is an older case. I don’t really care for all the RGB stuff, but it seems liquid cooling has taken up the space where HDD or removable HDD cages used to be. I have a removable HDD cage in my build, but I’m currently running 2 different RAIDs so I have it installed. SSDs can be installed directly on the board which is cool, but replacing HDDs are easy and more affordable when it comes to storage capacity. I’m not sure how long a SSD running RAID setups would perform with a lot of backups throughout the year. At least with an HDD it will be much less expensive to keep the RAID going.

I’m not going a lot of gaming on my PC like I used to so I was simply going to transfer my Fury X to my next build for now. As you saw above I’m STILL playing game @ 4K in 2019 with no issues. It’s time for a better architecture and CPU. I want a 8-Core Ryzen, but I think I might have to settle for the 6 core and decently priced motherboard (B550 or something).

What's the rough average people get out of X5660's? My old i5 isn't really cutting it any longer and I've been offered a rampage 3 gene and 12gb ram (I have 16gb spare from the i5 build so will have 24gb total) for £55 from a friend which I've taken and should be here Tuesday, I have played with 1366 xeons before so I know what I'm doing overclocking wise but I've only ever played with a decent bin X5650 (that was 4.4GHz 1.35v) several decent X5670s (4.5GHz between 1.35v and 1.4v on all of them) and a dud bin X5680 (4.2GHz 1.45v) but with funds being a little tight I've had to step back to an X5660 from my usual go to X5670 as the X5660 was about half the cost of the X5670 (£10 as opposed to £20), but all in all I was just wondering what to expect from it as a rough average, if I can get above 4GHz then that'll be enough for what I do but the more the better

Many thanks in advance

4.2-4.6GHz average. I daily 4.2Ghz with 1.3Volts stable for a few years now. I can easily get it to 4.6Ghz but that requires more volts so I do not bother.

ahh great thainks, my cpu arrived today, not as nice a bin as i'd have liked but good enough, am running 4.1GHz 1.31v but it takes me around 1.45v to get 4.5GHz, i may run that though when my new cooler arrives with these cpus being so cheap now it doesn't particularly matter if it dies

With my X5660 I can run:
3.8Ghz @ 1.18 (Stable)
4.0Ghz @ 1.21v (Stable)
4.2Ghz
4.6Ghz @ 1.35-1.36v (Stable)
4.8Ghz @ 1.41v (Stable)

The HIGHEST I've hit was with the X5660 was 5.5Ghz and I can't remember the vCore off the top of my head but I almost killed the CPU.

With my L5639 which is 60W TDP I pushed it to 4.5Ghz-46Ghz @ 1.46v

I normally run 3.8Ghz unless I need more for benchmarking purposes. I'm pretty much done benchmarking this platform and 3.8Ghz is enough for 4K gaming. Well at least 4K gaming in RE2 on nearly 100% maxed settings while recording gameplay footage (I have the video on YT).

Unless I need more i normally just run 3.8Ghz since it's the summer time now and I'll like to watch the temps. Plus as I stated earlier 3.8Ghz seems to be the sweet spot for my needs on a daily basis at the moment.

i like running 4.5 but it's too much of a voltage spike really, my poor 212 evo doesn't like 1.45v much XD
