Yeah AMD did a really good job with pushing the silicon to its absolute limit stock
I would recommend PBO and pushing RAM
I really hope your 3700x does 4.5ghz with PBO and it's not a static overclock
Zen 2 is incredibly fragile and known to degrade above 1.3v, so stock (or PBO) is the best for long term performance
Yes stock will push higher voltages but that can't be used to find the max voltage.
Four sticks is harder on the IMC to drive
You will not run 4x8 at that speed on Ryzen without some serious effort.
That kit is also CJR (I own it), and so be prepared for that.
The reason 3200 14-14-14 is so expensive is because its b-die, and binned b-die. High demand, and not amazing supply.
Ryzen is also boosting the core doing the work, not changing turbo profiles.
Changing the turbo ratios on Intel does nothing since windows balances the loads across cores and ruins the 1-2 core turbo
For all for voltage values
More voltage is the tldr of that error
Gonna say it
Looks absolutely terrible for airflow
You have a small cutout that is a 90 degree turn from the fans for the entire front intake airlfow
Which doesn't work well
But if you want the tempered glass front then you lose airflow.
Intel specification for memory is generally much lower than possible, and many people (including I) daily 1.5v for memory on Coffeelake / Coffeelake-R without any issues.
Turing failing was an issue only for the Founders Edition 2080ti, and some Founders Edition 2080
The other dying cards from other companies were well into the standard rates, and the dying 2080ti have all but been resolved. It also seemed to be an issue with the reference PCB, but the most accurate guess is that the VRAM solder was failing, and it would seem to be fixed if you reflow the solder (got it hot), it just wouldn’t last.
The Zotac one would be perfectly fine, haven’t heard anything negative about their customer support before.
IMC and core quality are entirely separate
Your motherboard also plays a huge role on memory overclocking
It’s the JEDEC bin that it’s using (I’m guessing).
Since Skylake (and other architects based on it) only support up to JEDEC 2666, I wouldn’t worry.
Now Zen 2 will support up to the 3200 JEDEC bin, which means if your RAM supports it on that CPU, it will default to it instead of 2133, etc.
Average FPS is a worthless metric to gameplay
Reviewers who only show average FPS also can be disregarded for all information, a 1200 / 2200G will not be the smoothest experience at any resolution.
You do what that means?
Looks like the 1050ti is the most recent single slot GPU
It does have three outputs
It will be an pretty rough experience
Plenty of games still use CPU particles, etc and will have large FPS drops on lower end CPUs
Just because it’s 4k doesn’t mean you can cheap out on the CPU
Look up reviews that compare fans in a controlled benchmark
You might not see similar numbers, but controlling for volume gives a good metric
Static pressure is a worthless metric to look at due to it being recorded differently for each fan manufacturer.
>2000rpm will be loud, unless you are willing to drop big bucks on nocuta (A12x25)
You have to access steam to validate the game at least once
Then it might require every month or something like that
Don’t do anything to get your account closed down, simple enough.
Yes it’s possible, not the most recommended configuration.
You will want to match the sticks to channels, so the 8GB sticks go in the one channel and the 4GB go into the other. Generally slots are labeled to make it easy, A1, B1, A2, B2 or some variant. It’s why you are recommended to put RAM sticks in a certain configuration with 2 sticks.
If not, you will have issues with dual channel and the mismatch configuration, not sure how AMD handles it buts it’s not recommended.
Yes you need a heatsink.
Since it’s locked, almost anything will work.
Something like a Hyper 212 is cheap and better than the stock cooler.
Unless you want to download a server / enterprise variant of windows, no.
You have to do it by hand.
Literally any pair of stereo headphones
Situational audio depend more on the games sound engine then your hardware as long as your setup isn’t terrible.
Games like Apex Legend will always be bad with any pair of headphones due to its horrible audio engine
Do you mean you just want to switch to the 2x8GB white sticks instead of your current 2x4GB?
If so, should be perfectly fine.
Ryzen has little problems with RAM compatibility with an updated motherboard BIOS
It’s a legit product
Hasn’t been announced yet by Logitech but they released it in Asian markets
You don't need to lap your 9th gen CPUs.
A delid and direct die is easy enough, there are a few companies selling stuff that dissolves solder to easily remove it.
If you can't do 5.0ghz+ at a reasonable voltage (1.3v or so) you got a dud of a 9600k.
5.1ghz does take some luck if you want a decent voltage, but it should be possible.
I wasn't really talking about 3200mhz
But 3200mhz tight on 4 sticks is still a challenge on Intel.
But, no companies are binning RAM to its limit for XMP profiles, so as long as he is reasonable it won't have any issues.
I meant did you overclock, etc
And what post code is it stopping on?
What exactly happened to break it?
3733mhz 17-21-21-41 will be CJR not B-Die
Just warning people who want binned B-Die for cheap.
2x16GB would be dual rank sticks in dual channel
4x8GB would be single rank (normally) sticks in dual channel that due to having 4 sticks would be dual rank in dual channel (effectively).
Dual rank does have a nice gain over single rank in read / writes but since both will be in dual rank, you will see similar performance.
2x16GB might be easier on the IMC, and the chance of one stick holding back the other 1 or 3 is less. But due to the 9900k having one of the strongest IMCs, you will be held back by your motherboard generally in memory overclocking. Since he is only running a non hardcore XMP, he shouldn’t have any issues.
Realistically the 9900k will have zero issues doing 3200mhz XMP profiles on 2x16 or 4x8.
It performs equally as drives that get double the capacity for the same price.
And SSD performance is meaningless past a point, since it becomes literal tenths of a second at best.
I can buy a 1TB NVMe drive and a heatsink for not much more.
If you didn't swap out the cables you probably killed the motherboard
Sending 12v down the wrong pin will easily fry whatever is on the other end.
If you got lucky, it would only have risked the CPU and not both the CPU and motherboard.
Most 1080s will do 225-250w at max
Unless you download the XOC bios it will never do above 250w
Most PSUs will not shut off the second you hit max capacity, but it will if you sustain it.
Not in this day and age unless you find one for super cheap.
Its pretty budget compared to other more recent PSUs
I can't find his review, so he must have deleted it.
Buy the monitor you want and a basic VESA mount for the stand.
There is a few issues
The 2990WX has a lot of issues in a lot of workloads due to NUMA, and for anyone building an overall workstation machine I would recommend a 2950X or a 9980XE.
Now you most like likely won’t need 128GB of RAM for a blender machine.
Oh, and get a cooler built for TR4 if you go for it. The coldplate needs to cover the entire IHS
All GPUs use the 75w from PCIe
You will need some kind of external dock to use thunderbolt 3.
Use the DPI native to your mouse sensor
The difference for gaming between 200 dpi and 12000 dpi for accuracy is incredibly small since making small movements like that is damn near impossible.
You want a slower sensitivity anyways
You can move your arm more for large distances, trying to make fine movements at a high sensitivity is harder since you are moving your mouse millimeters.
Check your manual to find out what 5 beeps means?
It’s probably no output detected
That is a pretty bad PSU
I’m guessing it’s tripping OCP of some sorts
You really shouldn’t cheap out on a PSU
The actual GPU is really thin
That is the PCB + backplate
Rest of a GPU is literally just heatsink
Intel can’t do much more on Skylake
The die already has four cores that were never intended shoved onto it and you can see that to keep the same clocks it results in massive power draws and insane thermals.
Cooling 200w on Bulldozer wasn’t hard, cooling 200w on Coffeelake R takes a beefy cooler.
If Intel tries to shove two more cores into the same die area, I would expect a frequency drop. Keeping 10c 20t above 4.5ghz across all cores is going to be an insane power draw with even worse thermal problems
DDR5 / DDR5 are entirely different to GDDR5
More memory bandwidth and lower latencies (faster frequency / lower timings) will help with any CPU task that involves RAM
Generally it is the most noticeable with 1% and 0.1% FPS in gaming benchmarks instead of average FPS.
Overclocking your GPU’s memory is different to system RAM overclocking
This is pretty good, I would aim for the A or higher tier
Something like the SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold is generally pretty cheap and its a good PSU.
That is a pretty mediocre PSU anyways
It was a scam
Seller has stock imagines or generic used imagines, and somehow has multiple products
They then go and buy keys the second the transaction completes and PayPal or Ebay eats the cost while you get no product
Has a tendency to happen on really old Ebay accounts that got compromised
or could have been sold out in the vendors he is using
