    As my friends and followers know, I just moved back to desktop performance after about a 12-year Sabbatical venture into high performance notebooks. It did not take long to notice the absence of a place where desktop owners can discuss their overclocking escapades and post benchmark scores. So, here we go...

    Laptop owners should feel free to participate in discussions, ask questions about overclocking and post benchmark scores to compare with what they see from desktop owners. This is a brand-agnostic thread for those that want to rub elbows with those outside of their brand-specific threads and fanboy cliques.

    As usual, I expect Brother @Johnksss@iBUYPOWER will be the king in this overclocker's thread as well. He is a great sensei and mentor to me. As I stayed within a budget, I suspect there will be others that have beasts that will stomp my humble (but potent) new beast.

    Also feel free to post photos or videos showcasing your monster PC in this thread. I will include my new system review as an example.

    Let the fun begin!

    Great system, congrats on the purchase. Must be a nice change having proper overclocking tools in the BIOS and not worrying too much about temps, although maybe you will miss the challenge ;)

    @Mr. Fox, nearly forgot my AIDA memory scores:
    AIDA64 395g125v3600m14cl.jpg cachemem 39g1225v3600m14cl.png
    I'll take a newer one soon. Today I went through and setup 4.05GHz (most of the above benches) and redid the ram kind of quick. I'm considering trying 3466, but shooting for CL12 on it. I think that would improve latency even more. But that is future plans, as well as needing to reseat the waterblock (wish I knew that before I assembled, talk about a pain in the hindside).

    Here's the thing, don't get it unless you have a use for it. If you are doing it for just benching, cool. If you plan on taking up a hobby, like video cpu encoding or transcoding, doing multiple streams while gaming, building a home server, etc., then do it. I will mention, Intel wins on performance (except on very specific tasks), but has the Intel price premium. If you can wait until Zen 2 vs. Ice Lake, you will get much more bang for the buck (Q4 2018-1H 2019, AMD 7nm versus Intel 10nm+ processes, DDR5 potentially as that is supposed to be published summer of 2018, PCIe 4.0 (PCIe 5.0 is supposed to be published in Q1 or Q2 2019), etc.).

    Also, remember that HWBot separates CPUs like mine from the mainstream chips. So it is a different, much smaller, class, which means more competition, but good ranks and numbers. If you mainly game or do regular compute, save the money and wait for the new Titan card or for Volta or Navi. Just saying, for the chip alone (AMD), you could get a nice 1080 Ti and the change nearly buys the Intel CPU, with ram and MB being equivalent. For Intel's 16-core, you can get two 1080 Tis, but have to deal with lack of SLI support (and DX12 makes it up to the game manufacturers, not hardware drivers, so unless the coders pick it up)....
