The Q-Bert has arrived (Love it! What a deal!) and the HIGHEST QUALITY spare parts are ready for reassembly. Just waiting on the ASUS motherboard.




*Important note -> I've recently learned that Carl ASRock Weathers removed support for AM3+ Vishera cpus from the 970 Extreme 3 motherboard support list after users had "issues". Might explain why the board died and also why I had zapping & other weird things go on for some time. Maybe the storm fried an already messed up board. Glad I threw it away after seeing this ->

lol. I got my FX in 2014. Mainboard/CPU/RAM in specs for $208 shipped back then.

I'd be well over $650 for the 2017 equivalent now. Its ridiculous.

The best AMD FX would have been the equivalent of an i3 back then.

When this project is completed, the Q-Bert behemoth will still be able to play BF1 at high settings w/ ULTRA textures. The FX8530 is no slouch, throw in a 1070 & it can produce an in game experience similar to any Ryzen or i7 right now. (Documented) :cool:

That said, I am very excited about getting the ole Zotac gtx760 fired up. This is a card I bought new, used for about four months before unexpectedly getting a 970 as a gift, and it has been in storage in near mint condition ever since. (over two years) It will be very satisfying to install modern drivers and see what it can do... though I already know it can do quite a bit from videos shown on youtube.

Asus motherboard should arrive Monday. Stay tuned... :cool:

Can't wait to get this old school juggernaut together. :cool:

GTX 760 was garbage then and it is garbage now.

Yes, just as the FX8530, which outperforms and outbenches many i5s and i7s, is equivalent to an i3. Indeed...

Evileh Nov 19, 2017 03:20 PM

I don't think i'd be running most games in 1440 on my 8350 if it was equivalent to an i3....

It's been great. I don't use it in the traditional sense. I straddle it between the armrests of my chair. It doesn't sit on top of my legs. My elbows also sit on the armrests so that my hands are level with the keyboard and mouse. It's very comfortable this way. I can game for hours and hours without any arm fatigue.

Apart from the display, I think you are all set.
Maybe change to a Samsung 9500 or 7350.

I heard that the new QLED models are also good for PC.

Yeah dad has a c7 oled haven't hooked my computer up to it yet was going to when we set it up but ran out of time. c7 has some of the best lag response times for pc.

AdamK47 Nov 20, 2017 08:00 AM

I had an OLED for two weeks. Returned it. The forced automatic brightness on OLEDs isn't all that great for PC use.

I'd like to get a 75" MU6300. They have a 21ms input lag in 4:4:4 chroma PC mode (the only way I'd use it). Not a fan of compression in game modes. The input lag on my 70" KU6300 is pretty descent in non-compression PC mode.

Just be aware the moment you see gaming on an OLED - you'll not want to go back to regular monitors/tv's.

I have the same tv in my bedroom but its the 65 curved version. Got a 1080 attached to it for some simple games. It's fine for just about anything other than first person. First person games is when I start feeling the lag and it makes me dizzy lol.

ULTRATRON38 Nov 20, 2017 11:27 PM

Update: The Q-bert-tratron build is running like greased lightning! All components are working perfectly in this revamped phoenix of a computer, rising from the ashes of Carl AsRock Weathers.
I also was completely successful in my first experience working with thermal paste. I usually just use the paste included with stock or aftermarket coolers, but the arctic cooler was being reused.

Currently installing windows 10 updates along w/ chipset, device, and graphics drivers.

It also looks frigan awesome! Highly recommend the DIY Q-Bert case. :cool:

Will post pics sometime tomorrow.

Why don't you go for a 7350 instead of a 6300. Am I missing something? All reviews say the 7350 is best for PC gaming.

Behold..... Q-Bert-tra-tron :cool:
