Fast file transfer rates, fast boot, quiet, cool CPU
Very good HTPC. It's cool :P
+1 for Delsin Rowe!
this intel ssd is superior compared to its pirce!
It's amazing, I totally recommend it.
I did it because because of personal preference and I didn't really care for a different motherboard for this specific build.
no gpu? Even though this is a work pc, I think you could benefit form a secondhand 750 at least, It'll help your framerates #pcmr.
We don't do heavy graphics at all just browser.
lol so you built your own chromebook :3
I am completely ignorant when it comes to computers but i am trying to buy my little brother a decent gaming computer why do you list two memory units?
Are you still trying to build your little brother a computer?? If so reply back or hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd be happy to help
Does the memory actually run at 2400 or are there BIOS options to OC memory? Or does the memory run at the default 2133?
I want to try to add a passive copper heat sink to my m.2 ssd, it is 5 mm in height. Do you think it will fit on the back of the motherboard?
could a gpu go in there with the aio cooler?
Just curious as to why would you liquid cool a 65 watts TDP locked CPU that you wont be able to overclock???
Just FYI people have had success with OCing the 6500 non-K chip.
This was pre BIOS update. Intel has long since fixed the BCLK editing on non-k chips
Oh well, I appreciate the knowledge!
Really, I want to see that happen with an H110 motherboard. Which seems you didnt bother to.check. You were more concentrated in downvoting all this conversation.
Because a motherboard doesnt have to be Z170 to allow for OCing, it just has to literally allow for the multiplier to be changed. Ive OCd multiple G3258s on H & B series ITX boards, the higher grade chipset and mobo mean is you have more stability and built in tools for OCing, not that a lower grade mobo is impossible to OC on.
Also I wasnt the one who downvoted you.
You are talking about haswell (G3258) which was a different story, overclocking was enabled on those motherboards H97,B85 because in that time Z97 motherboards were expensive and the G3258 was meant to be for overclocking at a budget. Didnt make sense to spend a lot on a motherboard. Later on many of this motherboards capability to overclock was disable by a bios update (obviously not all).
As for overclocking skylake cpus, all Z170 boards have the overclocking disable by a bios update. You would need to downgrade bios which in many cases you update it to resolve issues. This can even be disable through windows by an update.
Totally forgot that for a minute lol, yeah I was aware. I'm honestly not crazy about OCing to be honest with you.
Those 60 bucks could have gotten him a better motherboard...
