12 Core Haswell-E Xeon Turbo OCing? PC Parts Hunting (Mar ’17), Ryzen Workstation (Tech Vlog)

Here is the March Behind the Scenes Tech Vlog and of course there is a bit of used parts hunting, though the deals are kind of a bit of a bust again this month, I think I will have to start hunting once a week to get better deals and compile them into the video over the month, as I only managed to pick up a GTX 770 for 90$ AUD, albeit its a pretty good deal.

As for the Haswell-E, awesome thread at anandtech and thank you guys for your hard work there, it doesn’t go unnoticed (I was a lurker there lol) – Link is here – https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/…
I unfortunately couldn’t get mine to work properly, though it just might not be able to work properly, as it is the 06f1 version, and you need the 06f2 version for this to work 100%, though that said some people are getting the 18 cores to 3.5ghz (!) which is crazy for productivity, and even decent for gaming.

The Ryzen Rig is coming and will be ready hopefully soon, just waiting on some parts to come in, and with that I have accepted a sponsorship with Corsair and they are helping the channel out a lot, the reviews of course will still remain neutral and they (Corsair) have accepted the sponsorship based on that too! Look forward to bringing yall some great content for the rest of 2017!
