A problem with PC order list

Post by RGSparber » Tue Aug 01, 2017 7:08 pm

Motherboard
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product. ... 85V4M10171 <-- broken link

All other links worked fine.

Do you have an update?

Thanks,

Rick
PS: minor typo: pats list should be parts list

It looks like that motherboard is no longer available. We have switched over to using NUC PCs internally, but if you want to put together a desktop the below would be a good suggestion.

Motherboard:
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product. ... 6813145010

CPU:
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product. ... 6819117748

RAM:

hello. I just updated the CNCPC requirements web page with the latest CNCPC information.

I stumbled into another problem:

The CPU link took me to

Intel G3930 Kaby Lake Dual-Core 2.9 GHz LGA 1151 51W BX80677G3930 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 610

yet the paragraph above said

1.) The PC CPU must have a SINGLE CORE minimum benchmark of 1500. You can look up a CPU’s benchmark # using this website.

Please advise.

Thanks,

Rick

Each "core" of the CPU needs to be above the minimum benchmark. All CPUs these days have at least two cores. There are CPUs with multiple cores but the cores are not above the minimum.

So you mean:


1.) The PC CPU must have at least one of its cores with a minimum benchmark of 1500. You can look up a CPU’s benchmark # using this website. ?

All cores will be the same nominal speed. The reason we go by single core speed is that manufactures often create complex scenarios on how multiple cores work together based on system settings and software being used. But in real life two cores that are 2GHz each don't make a 4GHz processor for instance.

You got your question ordered but yes, your G3930 meets the CPU requirements and that's what counts
CPU benchmark of over 1500
4meg memory
Solid State Disk drive strongly recommended, about 120GB works great.
