Advice about my wished hardware upgrade
« on: 05-November-15, 03:13:35 »

Hi, sorry for my low level english, i hope you will understand me.
I would like to upgrade my hardware with a MSI motherboard atx format because of my case (i have Asus P5KPL-VM does it is atx or uATX)
, new ram (I was thinking 16GB), new CPU and SSD. I would like to mantain my graphics card MSI gtx 550ti.
The goal sholud be to play at battlefil4 with a reasonable expenses (400-700€) a good video quality.
Could you advice me about the better combination MSI motherboard - cpu - ram - SSD?

PS do you think that my old cpu fan  ZalmanCNPS9900 is still good for new cpu?

Hi

With GTX550Ti graphics might not be the best.
What I would suggest, is MSI Z170 Gaming M3 paired with Intel i5 6600k and 2x8 DDR4 2133MHz RAM (your choice of brand(Kingston and Corsair are good ones)). Your CPU cooler should be OK. As for SSD, Kingston or Crucial 120GB should be enough (if just for Windows) or 240Gb if want few games on it too.
If your budget allows, I would suggest selling your 550Ti and buying MSI GTX96Gaming 4G or better.

What might be worrying is that you most likely will need new power supply that is Haswell compatible (C6/7 states)

Meanwhile, thanks for the help.
 The power supply should be chosen well?

The expense would be a little higher than expected, maybe the graphics card would take it at a later time.
 As there seems to be a reasonable cost?

All seems fine. Sure thing you can wait with graphics card upgrade.
As for power supply, pick a Seasonic, Corsair or something that is well known to work with Haswell (or later). Best if you look around KitGuru, OC3D reviews and read what they recommend. I doubt this Aerocool will work at all.

Your Zalman 9900 cooler is just fine to keep using. Just to be sure of the GPU is it a 560 or 550? In your signature and all of your previous posts you say it's a 560 but in your opening post here you say it's a 550. There's quite a difference between the 2 and the 560 is much better than the 550. In Battlefield 3 the framerate is about 57 fps with 560 vs 31 fps for the 550.
 I agree that you should upgrade the PC 1st and upgrade VGA card later.

You are right, I'll cancel the wrong, I have a 560Ti. Thank you for support :) 
The only doubt now  is if I need the same socket and screw that have now my cpu or if I must look for other screw and tools contained in the old box of zalman. I'm not sure to find it! :bonk:

 I will study a good power supply for this solution.

I have another question.
 How many watts should have the power supply for this hardware?
My 600W enough or they need more?

600W is more than enough. But:
1. It doesnt sound as quality power supply.
2. Even if it is quality, it doesnt support Haswell or newer series.

Personally I would be afraid to plug it into new setup.

I'm sorry, I misspoke.

 I meant if I buy a new power supply 600w enough ... yes  ... You've already answered!!
 thank you


What do you think about this article? However if I will do the upgrade I will buy a new one.

Intel Haswell: Myths about not compatible with ballasts dated
Manuel Di Fringe - Monday, May 27, 2013, 22:40.
Article categories: Power Supplies • CPU
Or zoom the text of the article.
We have reached the final moment of the telenovela Haswell, Intel will take away soon unveil the entire line-up of the new processor family and in the recent past has opened a controversial discussion regarding the alleged incompatibility with some power, we will therefore, to clarify and dispel some of the inaccuracies that have been circulating for the network.
To retrace the steps of history, start with the news of the possible incompatibility between some older models of power supplies and CPUs Haswell, news that gave off a shower of press, with producers that have competed to list in writing models compatible with the new Intel (List Adapters Haswell from Thermaltake, Cooler Master, Enermax-Corsair-Seasonic).
On this topic, however, we are to dispel some untruths circulating in the network: The most power supplies on the market is not compatible with Haswell - FALSE One power-certified Haswell is necessary to assemble a PC with CPU Haswell - FALSE processors Haswell only work with DC-DC power supplies - FALSE Haswell processors require power supplies with 80 PLUS Gold or higher - FALSE Haswell processors require power supplies with a second line and do not work with 12V power supplies that have a single line 12V - FALSE On some older power supplies, CPUs Haswell consume 5W longer than normal when idle - TRUE
Intel has taken a major step forward in idle power, but also losing this advantage, you can upgrade your system with the new CPU without drawbacks
Intel has taken a major step forward in idle power, but also losing this advantage, you can upgrade your system with the new CPU without drawbacks
The greatest (and perhaps the only) problem that could lead Haswell of power dating is a possible shutdown of the PC when the system goes into idle deep. This is because the Haswell consume, at idle, only 1W, compared with about 6W of their predecessors and power less up to date may not figure out that the system is still running, cutting all power and, at times, preventing the PC wakes up hibernation.
All manufacturers of motherboards have decided to disable by default the state energy saving deepest Haswell, in this way, anyone who was not aware of this problem, not just in the incident described incapperebbe upgrading to Haswell without changing power, but simply would not have the benefit of lower power consumption while idle.
There is, then, a simple trick to allow you to enable the state to idle deeper with feeders dated, just install an extra fan in the PC directly connected to a 4-pin adapter, this ensures that the system always absorbs a minimum load enough so that the power supply is not cut off the power when the PC is idle deep. Of course, in this way they are cut consumption of only 2-3W and not of 5W, but it is a simple and effective solution.
Thank Cooler Master for having clarity in a matter that had become too misty.

 I just downloaded the latest manual for the cooler:
 
 The cooler should use the same screws for 1151 socket as it did for the 775 socket you now have so you shouldn't have to look for any other screws.

Thank you.
This solution would be a little more economic.
 Perhaps does it is less suited for overclocking?
 Does the lower quality would be much less?
What kind of SSD is preferable sata, sata express or M2?
 I'm studying a little and i'm orienting to a m2, but i have no experience.

All of that is good for overclocking. I wouldn't even worry about that very much.....use it stock and you'll be very happy.

Personally, my general opinion on SSD's, is get one from a brand you like, and that's it.

For 99% of the people out there, an SSD is an SSD is an SSD. You are not going to be able to discern in most situations whether the SSD you're using is connected via SATA3, SATA-Express, or M.2. Why? They're fast to begin with. 

I would personally stick with a good old tried and true 2.5" SATA SSD. Why? Because if you upgrade it later, you can still use it, you can put it in a laptop, put it in an enclosure to make a USB SSD, whatever you would like. 
With an M.2 that's not as easy. Few laptops have started supporting M.2 yet. And SATA-Express...well...very few things support it at this point in time.

That's just my general opinion.

To give some reference...my desktop is a MSI Z97 SLI Plus mobo, i5 4670, 16 GB of Ram, and a 120 GB SSD for my main drive, and a 2TB HDD for storage, and a GTX780Ti. I play most of my games on this and I have zero issues. It's slightly better than my 3 year old MSI GT70 with a Core i7 3610, 16GB ram, 480GB SSD, and a GTX680M.

This will probably be my choice.
 What do you think about the power supply?

 It is haswall compatible but I did not understand if the junctions for the graphics card are right?

Henry, I had sticked this part at old motherboard!

Do you think, that i will need a new double-side tape or I could use the same for the new motherboard?
The manual say that Double-sided Tape is not a necessary component, but I'm asking me if it's better use it a second time or remove the tape.

It does not say the double sided tape is not required, it says the loading block (The square black plastic thing) is not required. If the tape is relatively undamaged when you remove the backplate then go ahead and reuse it. I've never removed the backplate on mine so I don't know if the tape will be damaged or not.

Well if it clearly says that it is not required then you don't have to use such.

Not easy to remove the loading block from old motherboard. Heat have dry the tape.
It's impossible to reuse the double sided tape

Since you don't need the loading block nor the double sided foam tape square don't worry about it. Just clean up the backplate and put it on the new MB.

Big doubt !!
 Manual says: "Intel RST only supports M.2 PCIe SSD with UEFI ROM" !!
 Does It means that if my m2 SSD is SATA I can not use it? ;-((
I bought Crucial MX200 M.2!
Does it is much slower without Intel RST ?

Well SATA III and PCIe drives do differ quite a bit. But that's the only differencie. Intel RST doesnt matter much to be honest.

Ok ty very much.
So it's not important, but I did not understand if I can use it with a SATA m2 or not?
Does the problem is only for PCIe in legacy mode or also for every sata?

If it supports PCIe than SATA III should work fine too.

Sadly I have no experience with Linux, so you have to count on someone else's help, or possibly Linux forum.

In my opinion, an MSI Z97 Gaming 3 or 5 paired with an i5 4690k or something a bit lower (4590) will serve you just fine. You don't need Skylake to game, I know the upgrade sounds tempting but the gaming performance gain is just too little to justify the generational jump, at least in my opinion. Plus, now that the 6k series is out, the last generation can be obtained with pretty good deals!

Either way, good luck in your upgrade.

What's most important is to upgrade your graphics, buddy. If you are not looking for a groundbreaking gaming experience, the r9 380 or even the r7 370 should serve you well once you sell your 550ti (MSI makes some pretty good R7-9 300 series cards).

From that you can start thinking about mobo and cpu. Don't buy into the skylake hype train, a Haswell cpu will serve you more than well.

Other than that, I would advice rethinking about getting an SSD at your budget, but it's your call.

Cheers!
