    EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Power Supply
    Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM Hard Drive
    Old 5.1 Triton Headset[Not sure what model]

    Also have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo that I didn't install due to being hard as slapping god.
    Games i wish to play: NSMBU,Smash Bros[Duh],Mario Kart 8,and PMCP.

    EDIT:Is it powerful enough to do 30-60FPS with graphic packs,that's what i meant.

    No, you can't . Idk where you got that info but you can't OC anything with H110 mobo
    Even if you're going to do non-k OC , you have to get Asrock Z170 mobo and downgrade the bios (current bios prohibits non-k OC)

    I assume it's a joke , not a funny one though
    16 cores Xeon is not even powerful enough for Cemu...
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/cemu-very-slowly-on-a-strong-computer.452461/
    See , someboby has already tested Cemu on Xeon and it's slow as hell
    To be clear , you need a CPU that has the fastest single thread performance (i7 7700k atm ). Cemu does not support multi thread atm
    Just run Cemu then open CPU -> Mode , you will see "Single core recompiler" option there .

    Incorrect. Please stop spreading FUD. Cemu will use up to 3 cores.

    Any source to backup that claim ? There are only 2 modes "Single Core recompiler" and "Single Core Intepreter" in Cemu unless you don't how to read ... Cemu single core.jpg

    Yes, Exzap's OWN WORDS in a post in the main thread a month ago.

    Quoted for your reference.

    He's said it several times in fact, and at least once specifically mentioned 3 cores.

    So yes, I can read English JUST FINE, thank you.

    I mean no harm but you does not provide any source . So my point still stands
    and
    if this is exactly what Exzap wrote then i will translate it to you :
    it doesn't mean it uses 3 cores at the moment but it may support up to 3 cores in the near future
    Edit : Found it
    https://www.reddit.com/r/cemu/comments/4ghxzp/multicore_recompiler_support/
    So I'm correct after all

    You don't seem to be reading what I actually posted, and I did provide proof, are you blind? As I mentioned, there are several posts where he mentions this, and at least one where he specifically says three cores, I just can't be arsed to go digging through the thread for them all.

    Also, look at the date of your link and the one I provided. Yours is 9 months old, mine is a month. Are you calling Exzap a liar? Perhaps it was true all that time ago, which is a lifetime as far as Cemu is concerned, but it isn't now and hasn't been for a while.

    Nah , I reply before you edited your post . So i didn't see any proof at that time
    but then again . Exzap proved I'm correct again
    What did I write, again ?
    I know I shouldn't feed the "Xeon" troll in first place but what's the point of buying a multi-core CPU when Cemu only use 1 core at 100% .

    No, you said it doesn't use multiple threads, Exzap confirms that it DOES use multiple threads, it's just that the first thread is used more. It's still multiple threads being used. You are wrong.

    Come on now IIYAMA. Can't you just admit that only part of your statement was true:
    And the other part was false. Or at the very least misinformed. And you can't use "one core will always be 100%" to prove that last part of your statement true.

    Anyway all this over a joke post in a thread that I'm not so sure was legit to begin with. I mean come on. If this thread is legit then spiffyjunior has done zero research into what it takes to run CEMU and has no business putting together a computer. OC a 6500 on an h110m board with the stock cooler? He couldn't even figure out how to mount a hyper 212. One of the most popular air coolers with dozens of youtube install videos.
