X58 & 4 core XEON's. Bryan you awesome guy.
As a big fan of Bryan's work i am here to help people with the experience i have had when following a build this excellent guy did.
This would entail his 385 dollar X58 Overwatch PC build.
Video linked below.
Originally i bought the E5640 (15 UK)
P6X58D-E board (98 UK)
Reference GTX 670 2GB (45 UK)
I re-used hardware i had from my Phenom II build.
Now as time has gone on, i have upgraded to a better GPU, an R9 Fury, i will say it now this performance of GPU is the X58's upper limit, it will not push anything better @ 1080P or lower.
I run a 1680x1050 120hz panel.
You will need a 2560x1440 or higher resolution to make use of a GTX 1080 or higher configuration.
I bought it all for CSGO mainly, the IPC improvement over Deneb is quite extreme, at 4.15GHZ the Phenom II was 47% slower vs the XEON at 4.1ghz in CSGO, the XEON was only sporting 1299mhz RAM and the Phenom II had RAM oc'd to 1708mhz. BF4 ran at a whopping 60% faster, i'm sure HT helped it.
This is my max OC on the E5640 with stability (later changed the cooler)
Video's of my XEON with R9 Fury, it's awesome and i have had an epic 2 years with it.
Thank you Bryan!
