What CPU did you get with it? As the RX470 might be the bottle neck.Build my PC from wootware, they have excellent service! I am living in JHB and delivery was a quick 3 day and had everything needed. I would recommend them any day do not matter if you live in the cape or not...
Asus 470x-F board runs good boost go all the way up to 4.2Ghz pre updated the bios free of charge which is nice. Bought the board for the onboard audio and did not disappoint, better than the SB extreme gamer I had. Basically overall good performance, but I think many apps and games do not utilize so many cores. Maybe I need to upgrade my RX470 but still does the job...
AMD 3600What CPU did you get with it? As the RX470 might be the bottle neck.
For now AMD says it will be disabling it. So not sure how asus will continue the support when amd updates the agesa code.
Dude, I don't overclock either. My last build is more or less 10 years, thanks to Prophecy Shop (I worked for them til they closed down).Sigh. Thanks for all the positive feedback folks.
Just so you know - not interested in overclocking. Just wanted a stonking build at price I was willing to pay. And one of the Wootware folks I trust was quite positive about this build.
Thought I recognised the name from their forums, surprisingly the old quad cores are still reasonably competent. With a decent newer GFX you could eek out a bit more life.Dude, I don't overclock either. My last build is more or less 10 years, thanks to Prophecy Shop (I worked for them til they closed down).
I've been hesitant to upgrade because why spend so much dosh every year when you can get a decent build and have it last you at least up to 10 years before needing to rebuild again because of old age, wear and tear? I'm on a tight budget so I can't justify R4000 for a CPU, it's just way too much.
My Sandybridge was a quad-core - played most games very well and I had a decent mid-range GPU too. I"m not one to chase the latest technology fad and only choose what I need.
Each to his own, it's your choice and your money, you pay for what you get.
