Processors

— bought for $200. replacing 8700k to get rid of hyperthreading. very nice processor for not an extreme core count and keeping latency down. the i5-9600k just don't got those 2 extra cores that help a lot @the esp-user guy: this performs better than an 8700k. it has issues with high core workloads, but obviously that's not its main selling point.

Memory Kits

— bought these when I first built this pc, had no idea what xmp was. all these years later this is still a great kit at a great price. 4x8gb works fine at 3200 or even 3466 with tuned timings, just remember to shove voltage in it

Solid State Drives

— Good SSD at a good price point on sale. Don't pay more than $130 for it though. Has terrible sequential write times, so if you want lengthy workloads, just spend the extra on the EVO pro 'cuz you'll notice it really fast. Also this is incredibly better than the MX500.
