Well this days at least from my tests i do see 2133 Mhz as a minimum for RAM, if your after good system response times. Gaming wise there's very few games where RAM speed makes a difference, Fallout 4 and Overwatch are the only ones that come to mind, though i think there where 2-3 others as well.
Watch Dogs 2 too. There have been cases where people with GTX 1080 struggled to play the game as it kept stuttering. The issue turned out to be that their GPU was barely used, as their PC was bottlenecked before it got to the graphic card. They were using something like 1600hz ram speed. WD2 has very high CPU usage, but turns out ram matters a lot too.
I'm using 2400mhz ram and didn't encounter this issue, my game running faster than theirs. But 2400mhz ram with the GTX1080 would give even better results.

It's a very interesting result nevertheless since your CPU and RAM are faster than mine but my GPU is faster than yours which is what clearly makes the difference here and even things a little.
What GPU do you own?

Ahhh, 3DMark is more for testing GPU's then CPU's or ram.
So no surprise your GTX1080 beats my GTX1070 in 3DMark tests.

For every day tasks ? Yeah should be fine, I'd recommend you an AMD build for that but there's to much hassle, so in

Currently have my ram at 2133, but maybe I'll try guning for 2400 once i get another key for Dmitry render, and have time to start testing again.

I recently spotted the Pentium G4560 which seems to be better than the old one and a good option to the i3 while offering similar performance and 4K resolution support. I have been thinking in getting a low-end PC for everyday task while only using my PC when i really want to game.

Since you have a good knowledge in such budget CPU's do you know if is worth it?
I have no idea how that chopped up reply came up, but honestly i would rather recommend you an FX budget rig rather then the G4560, with that said in theory for what you want it should work, honestly my G3258 struggled with 4k at 4.2 Ghz, as in it was stuttering pretty nasty, the G4560 though should be comparable to a previous I3 gen without turbo and due to its hyper threading technology it should be able to keep up with youtube 4k. But i cannot say for sure as other then your videos and youtube i don't have any practical experience with 4k.

The idea behind is reducing energy consumption when not gaming. I recall you talking good things about your old one and the new one is even able to do 4K video which is perfect. I have no experience with those low-budget CPU's which is why i asked. I have some bad experience with low-end AMD CPU's so i didn't bothered.

Ah, i see i thought you needed a secondary machine for work or something :p, also i would have recommended an FX 8 core actually, but only if it would have been on a deal, that's how i got mine :p. From CPU, mobo to cooler everything was on a discount :p. Like i said in theory the G4560 should be able to handle 4k but i can't say for sure...

For the new chips its not using software decoding like the older chips do they actually have hardware on board to handle the new codecs that netflix and youtube use for 4k so its going to massively cut down on cpu usage compared to the older chips.

Apparently you guys don't hang around the Kodi/xbmc forums like I tend to.

The reason why i want a PC rather than a Intel Stick is because the stick works great for movies and web as well as youtube but is laggy not while playing but when browsing the web or just doing some small tasks here and there. I'm used to my moster PC on my 4K TV so having something less powerful feels bad :p but in the other hands i want to safe energy.

It goes to 11.....

I'm fairly confident I can get this to 4.2ghz if I need to, I have ample cooling to support it, but until I start seeing times where I need it I have more than enough power for now.

First time trying cinebench since building my rig, all at stock performance, no overclocking with 2400mhz DDR4 ram on a Gigabyte Designaire X99A and a 950 nvme pro drive.

Had to push my i5 3570k to 4.2ghz because of Pcsx2 and Dolphin other than that everything else ran perfectly fine at stock speeds. I get slightly over 2300 stp with the oc.

At Snicko's suggestion moved my 5 Ghz OC bench here (i almost forgot lol):

Its not something to keep, as in some cases it gets to hot for regular use, but i just wanted to achieve the maximum OC speed for the hell of it XD.
