Wife and I are planning on starting a family so not really a priority right now. Near mint condition, excellent build quality. Frictionless sensors for rudder and pedal axis. Not much to wear out, springs still have same tension as when they where new. Should last for years...
  7. I'm sorry you are getting such bad advice. The 5600X is a good CPU for gaming. When Gamer's Nexus tested it, it performed really well even at stock. Thing is to get the measurable differences in framerate for all his graphs he had to use benchmark software under specific test situations like 1080p medium. An even then it was different for different games. Under normal gaming conditions with higher graphic settings especially at 1440p or 4K there isn't going to be a difference. Especially one that is noticable to the human eye. People who are telling you differently have some kind of bias that isn't backed up by data. Which is unfortunately very common with this issue. Less so on this forum but it's really bad on a lot of PC build forums. On games like CounterStrike and Rainbow 6 there might be a higher framerate delta but whether your eye will actually perceive any difference is debateable even if you had a 240Hz or 360Hz monitor. People really need to stop making asinine power usage comparisons if they don't know what they are talking about. To get my CPU above 200W you have to stress test it in Prime95 small FFTs with AVX on. Right now my entire computer is drawing 72W while running Windows and having a few browser tabs open. When playing DCS, per MSI Afterburner my CPU draws a whopping 67.2W. DCS only uses 3 cores. There will not be any significant difference in power draw while gaming between CPUs of Intel or AMD. TDP has absolutely nothing to do with claimed power consumption or total potential power draw of a CPU. It means thermal design power and is a metric for cooler manufacturers to design their coolers for typical use cases not a metric of how much power it is using. All the anecdotal evidence I've seen from qualified people seems consistent. AMD CPUs are sold with very little headroom for overclocking so it's not really worth breaking the warranty unless your prepared to buy a new chip. They do respond well to memory tuning and tightening up timings to lower latencies. Thing is, if you have to buy expensive specialized B-die memory to get the full potential out of the chip, that's no different than having to pay for cooling to overclock Intel chips. My general advice between a 5600X or a 10600K/11600K is get whatever is on sale. The only real difference you will actually perceive with your senses will be the price.
  8. Finally someone has done a real benchmark! Thank you! This should be the standard from now on. I would have posted basic Excel graphs. Just one fine point. You definitely didn't win the SL with your 7700K. That's why I buy from Silicon Lottery, it's worth the premium. Speculating but if you could keep 5.0+ stable I don't think you would have seen the delta on your 2D data. The 7700Ks were actually really good overclockers, but you needed to delid and change out the stock thermal compound. Mine hit 5.1 all core easily. Single was at 5.3 Ghz. DCS will run just fine on 3 Skylake cores. I've tested it myself my restricting cores in BIOS. No difference in frame rate between 3 and 4+ cores. https://siliconlottery.com/pages/statistics Now, if you can just buy a stock AMD CPU and it's IPC and clock speed are good enough. That speaks volumes. Most PC gamers don't overclock or delid. How did you tune your AMD CPU, memory overclocking? Either way great benchmark. Please post more data if you have it. From the data I've seen the 5900X seems to be binned with the best single core performance which matters most for games and sims. I'm only seeing it scalped currently. Oh yeah, my chip hits about 620 on the single thread score in Cinebench when properly OC'd. I was hoping Rocket Lake would be a significant jump to upgrade but alas, the data on 11900Ks is not very good. A binned and overclocked 10900K is probably the fastest for gaming right now per Gamer's Nexus benchmarks.
  9. If you guys are in the US you can get on EVGA waiting list. It's probably really long now, but that's how I got my 3090 at retail. Had to sell it though, needed the money and the offers I was getting on it were too nice to pass up. Wish I still had it though. Need to update my sig. Retailers aren't scalping if the distributors they get them from are charging inflated prices as well. This probably isn't going to ease until TSMC and Samsung get more fabs online. Intel, Samsung, and TSMC are both dropping 10's of billions on new fabs but they can't throw those up overnight. Semiconducter/Processor fabs are probably one of the most complex and expensive things that humans are capable of right now. It sucks but either Ethereum needs to come down in price or more cards need to be made, no way around it.
  10. People don't mine Bitcoin with GPUs. They are mined with ASICs. GPU's are used to mine Ethereum.
  11. My local Microcenter has 5600X and 5800X in stock. From the benchmarks I've seen the 5900x seems to be binned a little better but not enough to pay a scalper.
  12. Concur, all the data coming from Rocket Lake benchmarks is very disappointing. 9700K at 5.1 is perfect for DCS. I run my 9900K with hyperthreading off which makes it a 9700K with a little more cache. We're stuck waiting till Alder Lake and DDR5.
  13. I can get you a 3% discount on EVGA graphics cards. EVGA cards have a 3 year transferrable warranty which means they hold their value really well on the secondary market. I got my 3090 at MSRP after waiting in their queue system for 5 weeks. I passed on several queue notifications for other SKUs because I wanted the Kingpin model. Wait for 3080's is longer though. On US Ebay scalping market isn't that bad right now. Cards are going for maybe $100 - $200 over MSRP. I still wouldn't pay that much just on principle to discourage the market, but people are buying them.
  14. Hey Koe, Builds look good. If you were gaming only I would suggest the 10600K ($199.99 over here). But Solidworks and related programs scale with threads and cores. DCS and the overwhelming majority of games do not. Instead of 64GB of RAM consider a 32 GB kit binned at a higher frequency and lower CAS latency. You'll see actual performance benefit out of that. If DCS is using all 32GB something is wrong that will be patched out. I realize the new AMD chips are all the rage right now. I just picked one up myself. So far there is no evidence of any significant performance benefit over Intel. But the upgrade path on the AM4 socket is kind of in a grey area right now. With the Z490 LGA 1200 you know it supports Rocket Lake which has an IPC boost over today's Skylake uarch according to Intel. Hope that helps...
