Thank you for proving my point with a fine example. It's revolving door....
--People buy several CPUs and other parts leaving some enthusiast left out.
--People then go on "blow them up"
if they want even if they truly don't know what they are doing or simply reading guides\get help from other novices online. Who cares how "I" get my clocks as long as I get them is the mindset, if it dies....just dump it back in the market.
--A lot of people re-sell those blown up parts online for some other sucker to buy...ruining one chip or MB (or BOTH)....at a time......rinse repeat.
The X58 price is good, but this is why I recommend most people to just upgrade to a cheaper Ryzen instead of wasting the money on this platform now. It has been used and abused for years. Even if people manage to get a decent OC you have to wonder how long it would last and how much better you would had been if you had just spend an extra $50-$100 on modern tech with knowing that it's hasn't been punished harshly over the years.
Also you might want to go back and delete or edit your previous posts to "duplicate" or something. I see that you are new here and still getting used to the weird posting behavior on OCN. I still have issues with from time to time. Welcome to OCN
, I suppose you will like it here more today than previous years.....I guess.
Nice Tutorial and I'm sure it would be helpful to so. I've never had to use a tutorial\software\firmware to boot to my NVMe. I guess if I ever wanted to upgrade my NVMe to the latest and greatest in 2020 I would need to follow a guide or something, but I'm sure I won't be changing my NVMe until I leave this platform and upgrade.
Also I would like to clarify one of my statements from earlier when I stated:
I do agree moving the X79 and higher would get much more performance
Jumping to the X79 won't gain you a lot of performance or "much more performance"
since I actually did the calculations for "clock to clock" performance against SBE and Ivy Bridge-E back in 2014-2015.
X5660 vs High-End SB-E & IVB-E Benchmarks & Comparisons
In some situations the X79 will be better for more modern tech and games. X79 issue with me was the price. Especially if you compare the X79 price against the X58 price & performance.
Getting extreme OCs on the X79 would gain much better results yet those results wouldn't be daily usage. You'll need LN2 and exotic cooling to go well above 5Ghz. It would just be a e-peen show as usual in the overclocking area.
