New system for prepar3d v4

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I will buy new system for prepar3d v4. I want to run P3d smooth with pmdg, active sky, orbx, etc. I've picked parts on partpicker as follows. 

CPU: Intel - Core i5-7600K 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor  ($227.88 @ OutletPC)

CPU Cooler: Noctua - NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler  ($69.95 @ Amazon)

Motherboard: Asus - STRIX Z270F ATX LGA1151 Motherboard  ($173.89 @ OutletPC)

Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory  ($135.88 @ OutletPC)

Storage: Samsung - 960 EVO 250GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive  ($127.99 @ Amazon)

Storage: Seagate - Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive  ($66.89 @ OutletPC)

Video Card: Asus - GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Video Card  ($429.98 @ SuperBiiz)

Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA NEX 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply  ($74.88 @ OutletPC)

I prefer i5 7600k instead i7 7700k, also I want to overclock but I am not sure about the processor

If you guys could comment your opinions, I would be appreciated

I don't understand why no-one will consider ryzen.i own a 7700k system, but i bought the ryzen 1700 clocked at 3.8ghz. i tried p3d and x-plane 11 side by side and the lower clock speed on the ryzen runs just as well as the 7700k does at 5ghz. we should be punishing Intel for cheating us for the past 10 years with the minor 10% upgrade from the 2500k to the 7600k. intel has been holding us back. AMD has gone from 7% market share 3 months ago to 38% 3 months later. when AMD thread ripper comes out next month our games will run fine. 4ghz is plenty fast for p3d and x-plane i found out the hard way after spending 3,000 on my intel build.

Well, honestly, I don't know much about amd ryzen. Everybody is talking about intel 7700k 7600k 6th series, etc. I have used intel 4790k @4.6 ghz 2 years ago and i was very pleasure. I am also a gamer and i gonna play games like assassins creed origins far cry 5. So, since i have no experience and knowledge with amd, i am not sure.

1) Consider 32GB DDR4 kit (2x16) since newer sims are starting to push total system RAM use over 16GB.

2) Yes the M2 960 Evo is faster than a SATA SSD but will the difference really be useful for simming? Consider saving some money on a Samsung 850 Evo.

3) Consider the Western Digital Black 2TB SATA drive, may be faster than the Seagate.

I'm also considering an i5-7600K over the i7-7700K since many sims e.g. DCS don't even use logical cores. Anyway:

Q1) Why the NH-D14 and not the NH-D15?

Q2) What made you choose the Asus STRIX Z270F M/B?

Yet! If you can afford the 7700K then I would go for it to make your new system more future-proof.

Do you know of any flightsims or even add-on developers who code their products to use logical cores? There must be good reasons why we're not seeing this hardware capability used in flightsims.

1. I will consider 32 gb ram and WD Black.

2. I have already have m2 960 evo on my laptop so i will just simply install it on desktop.

I have actually renewed the rig. Latest version:
