I don’t remember the length but I agree that getting the cables with right angle is helpful, it makes management a ton easier!

I love my 804 for a home server case, it just sits on my self all unassuming, right now it’s about 3/4 full at 16 TB total storage available.

Look at the parts list carefully, one is a dual kit, the other is a single. But I run 12gb total. I started off with two sets of 8gb but one of the 4 gb sticks didn’t work so 12 it is

Like mentioned in the other comment you can overclock this pentium. The water cooler is overkill but I knew I would be throwing 1.45 volts at it to get to 5 ghz. Also the plan is to hold out for a sub $200 i7 4790k

If your MOBO does not support your chip then you can't boot into the bios. That's why he recommended taking it to a shop as the likely hood of them having a supported CPU is higher.

Btw as someone who recently built an am3 system for fun, and then spent double that to build a skylake i7 system listen to the people above you for the same price you can get a way better performing system, even if you have to pay a restocking fee on that mobo you will come out ahead.

Yes it was intentional! As long as the two kits are the same it will work, when you have quad channel like on the x99 that is when you need 4 identical kits.

Surprisingly I do not play alot of AAA games, I think the newest AAA game I have is GTA V, and on a mix of high / very high settings I get 55-60fps with it. most of my older games will do 4k at 60fps. the gtx 1080 ti is on my upgrade list for this beast!

Its only possible on z170 motherboards as of now, and only certain ones that have a specific bios. If interested Asrock is mainly the only one that has the official SKY-OC bios online on their servers. mind you its a BLCK overclock so it will screw with your ram speed, and disable cpu temp reporting and i think the IGPU

It was ok, it did a good job of keeping the CPU cool, it honestly only lasted maybe a few weeks while i ordered the Dark Rock Pro 3 and did some OC research

This motherboard supports dual channel ram, so if two of your sticks is matched it works, since it has two sets of ram you only need to buy two sets of two rather than one set of four. Just make sure the timings and speeds are the same

I would agree with you in regards to gaming and single core stuff, but when it owes to brute force things like video render the FX chip can still hold its own. That was one of the big reasons why I went that route, but I just went about it the wrong way and the wrong time

I had thought about undervolting and putting a fan on the vrms but in the end I don't think I would ultimately be happy with whatever small overclock I could get.

Thanks man, I have an i3-6100 that was given to me as part of a trade. I already have it built with a z270 mobo with the intention of going with a k sku i7 just a matter of waiting for ryzen to drop and intel to react to make my final decision

On edit, I am keeping the fx8350 and going to grab a much better motherboard and see how far I can take it!

The stock cooler for the g3258 is adequate for medium overclocks (4.4 ghz)

Yeah, The g3258 does suffer a bit on multithreaded games, I had really bad stuttering playing witcher 3 when it first came out on my g3258, which was immediately alleviated by switching to an i3.

But in this case a g3258 is more than enough for my needs.

I havent pushed them yet, what i did is see who could get the highest on stock voltage. this one at 4.4 the second hit 4.5 the last one also hit 4.5

It's not scientific, but it makes sense to me!

Also, alot of this stuff was already lying around in my house. At my local microcenter I can pick up a haswell i3 for $99.00 so I would have gone that route mainly because I dont have any ddr4 ram laying around.

He is talking about using the money i spent on the cooler and the g3258 i could have bought a skylake i3.

I already had the chip, plus the cooler came from my i5 devils canyon build (i ended up switching to a dark rock cooler). So it was money already spent.
