Just bought one of these on occau for 350 aus. Been after one of these for ages. Never got on with the dark so sold that along with 18 core thing . Still have a very good 4 core left . Hope the ram runs better on this . Any tips from you guys on good settings for this board ? I know Asus but not x299 Asus. Thanks Paul

Sorry for the late reply.
If we are talking 4 core dual channel, you will not have much luck with Apex vi too. These X299 boards are not designed for dual channel setups. 7740k was a by-product from Intel. same core with 7700k but binned silicon in order to charge 50% more.
4000 / 12-12-12-28-1T is the best bet if you have good A1 layout mems. 4133 / 12-12 never worked for me.
austin86: I like the old MS intellimouse. But it sounds like you need to find anther Razor mamba.

zila1: If you liked that mouse that much another type or brand may not suit you. If you can find another one, I would get it. Maybe two more if you can swing it and put one away.

ShrimpBrime: Any suggestions, or should I just get another of the same mouse? I did get a lot of years from it....

ShrimpBrime: I dislike my new mouse. Need suggestions. Was spoiled for a long time with a Razor mamba tournament edition. The mouse wheel has 4 buttons on it's own, I liked the side to side page scroll feature it had. The lazer wigz out occasionally.

antinomy: So if you lack of sex, VIA's here to help you

antinomy: Nano has twice performance for same clocks against the older C7. But compatibility is a bitch. Bench(f**n)mate won't run on it, W10 didn't run too (maybe there is some build that will), some benchmarks are finicky about VIAs.

antinomy: The architecture has changed a few times. C3 is like the stone age. Superseeded by C7. Don't remember about IPC but the bus changed from P6 arch (Pentium 2/3) to quad-pumped (Pentium 4/Core2). Then it has been replaced by Isaiah architecture (VIA Nano).

austin86: yeah the c3 was a slow chip, some of the zhaoxin CPUs use VIA architecture too.

Macsbeach98: And dont go much better either

Mr.Scott: I have a few VIA's. Not much different than PIII's.
Aug 3, 2022 15:21:08 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: No, haven't gotten into VIA processors actually. Figure try and recoup the spending on the board even though I really like it.
Aug 3, 2022 10:56:14 GMT -5
austin86: Have you ever played with VIA CPUs? they have some very low TDP. many are sub 20w
Aug 3, 2022 8:30:33 GMT -5
austin86: Cool idea. the b660 is a good chipset albeit a little simple. I do have a Asus csm board so my experience could be gimped.
Aug 3, 2022 8:30:06 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: Try to build a sub 100w system. Then maybe sell it. Just a thought at this point. Bit have a B660-I it would work perfect with.

austin86: I almost got one of the faster Pentium's, what will you be using it for?
Aug 2, 2022 9:05:30 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: I was thinking of building with a celeron or Pentium gold. Like 59 bucks for a dual core lga 1700
Aug 1, 2022 20:25:13 GMT -5
austin86: I got my 12100f on ebay for about 96 dolors before tax/shipping. its a lot of CPU for the price
Aug 1, 2022 8:09:56 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: Celeron and Petium gold are both under 100 bucks. 12th gen.

george: my workshop 5600G been really rock solid, not one hick-up so far, pulls good. wife's old i3 still pulls good also, though I do not have experience of the newer i3's though.
