    I need to build a 5600x system, MB & Ram advice

    I'm an intel guy but one of my intel parts died and now its time for an upgrade. I'm seeing Ryzen 5600x in the $270 to $280 range and I'm thinking that's the smart move, but what motherboard? Ideally I'd like to be budget friendly but one thing I need is Wifi, AC works but AX would be better...

    8700k no longer boots with 2 sticks of ram.....MB on the way out?

    I'll keep it simple, I've run a 8700k at stock for a few years now (whenever they came out, so what, 2017ish? 2016?)....so it puttered along at one core hitting 4.6 and the others hitting 4.3 or whatever. I had an overclock on it and a mild overvolt but then backed it off when I realized it...

    Need advice on upgrading an ancient Intel 2600k system to something Ryzen powered, no OC needed.

    My kid has been rocking my overclocked (used to be 4.8Ghz stable but now it's more like 4.0ghz stable due to his room being hotter) Core i7 2600k......what was it..Ivy League? Ivy Town? Ivy Bridge? Whatever.......its ancient. It works, but he says the fans crank all the time, the overclocks...

    Got one for you gurus....Asus P8P67 rev B with a 2600k.....I think she's dying...

    Bought this back in, what, 2010, 2011? Was my gaming rig running at 4.8 (!) Ghz on little more than a slight voltage increase, HT on, I even left Speed Step on so it wouldn't crack the fans every time it ramped up and down, it would coast along at whatever it default was, then game on and it...

    Need a memory refresh: Whats the BIOS command to enable speed stepping on Intel CPU's?

    On my 2700k....yes still running a 2nd rig with this chip inside.....it idles at like 1.8 or something and then ramps up to 4.6 or 4.7 on the overclock it's been running for ages. I haven't booted to bios on that machine in a million years. But when I built a new rig on an 8700k I wound up...

    Can someone check these timings for me...

    Guys, I run a Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 5 along with an 8700k that runs at 5ghz (kinda...not sure if that's all cores or just the single one to be brutally honest) just by manually changing the multiplier and letting the Gigabyte board do the figuring-out by enabling "Turbo" (but not extreme)...

    MB Emergency: Building 8700k, Do any MB's still have copper SPDIF output?

    Back in the day, Digital Audio Output on motherboards would offer-up both a TOSLINK SPDIF connector and a standard RCA-Jack style SPDIF connector. I have a 20foot run of HDMI going to a projector, and I have a 30 foot run of RCA cable that carries 5.1 audio from my PC to my receiver. Problem...
