It's time to put the brakes on the Ryzen hypetrain again.
>Ryzen 5 1600X 6 12 3.6GHz 4GHz
>Ryzen 5 1500X 4 8 3.5GHz 3.7GHz
>The main difference between the two, obviously, is the core count. The Ryzen 5 1600X will offer six cores, while the 1500X will have “only” four cores. Both chips has the “X” suffix, so they offer XFR, a dynamic clock feature that can up the maximum clock past even the Precision Boost clock when paired with a high-quality cooling solution.
>It’s also interesting to note that the Ryzen 5 1500X, despite its lower core count, does not beat the clock speed of the 1600X. We asked AMD about this, and the company told us that we should not generally expect Ryzen 5 and 3 processors to pair higher clocks with lower core counts, though it’s also not off the table.
Not surprised honestly.

Post your component list, rate other anons', and ask questions in general.
Always state the purpose of your PC, your budget, AND YOUR COUNTRY if outside the USA.
If you are asking for improvements, clarify whether you want to lower price or to improve specs or build quality.
Assemble your parts list; built-in price comparisons by vendor and a compatibility filter.
Gaming builds based monitor resolution and refresh rate
>To activate the Description, select build from sidebar then click on the title over the parts list
>Description contains notes, other options, and build skeleton for easy customization / cost savings
>Note: Win7 and 8.1 cannot be installed on a 200 series chipset
Have a budget, but don't know where to start? This will recommend you a parts list based on price.
>Subsitute a G4560 with 2400MHz RAM for any Pentium or i3; similar performance, up to 50% cost reduction.
>Consider using an i5 7500 in any RX470/480 or GTX 1060 tier build
>Consider stock fan+heatsink for any i3 or locked i5 build without a Z mobo
>Consider a B250 or mobo for any Pentium or i3 build
>Add a 240GB SSD to the "Very Good" tier build
>The only worthwhile gfx cards are the GTX1050, RX470, RX480, GTX1060 6GB for 1080p

Can we get security general going?
Tinfoil hats, skids, people with rice they want to post, people with something useful to contribute; all welcome.
Im reading a book on penetration testing atm. Its a little out of date, but Im picking things up which is good. I cooked up my first exploit, hosted it on my file server and owned my windows vms with it. Its nothing major, nor is it even relavent, (MS08-067) but I feel good, because Ive never done something like that before.
