Not really what his question meant. Typically, RGB software suites from competing manufacturer's do not play nicely together. It can be difficult to get everything synced up when you have 3 different pieces of control software running at the same time.

It's an Asus Dual. Blowers use a single fan and an enclosed finstack that exhausts out of the IO plate on the back of the card.

Why did you go for the 3400G? The 3600 is a massive upgrade, and only 50 dollars more.

Just leave your 2700 at stock. It will boost up to 4.1 on a single core, and around 3.8-4.0 all core depending on thermals/voltage limitations. If you want to overclock it, look into PBO overclocking. I'm not sure if that board supports it, but it has a decent VRM, and should be capable.

Yeah, the GTX 500/HD 7000 era is one of my favorites. Very competitive, but AMD and Nvidia had some cool products back then.

I've been using it on my laptop for a while now, and it's been great except for a couple minor issues. Any time I use a Chromium based browser, there's some weird flickering in the upper right hand corner, and the window flashes sometimes. It doesn't happen in Firefox, but the scrolling is terrible on a trackpad, so I just kinda deal with it. Haven't found a fix for it yet, but I still prefer it to MacOS. I keep meaning to install it on my desktop, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

It's the RTX series, all the 2070s are basically the same. Only difference between each partner card is cooler and PCB design.

I fully support this kind of a loop. Even though the 390 isn't the newest, it's still a high end part, and benefits greatly from watercooling.

Edit: What reservoir is that? It's quite compact.

Use a monitoring software like CPU Z or MSI Afterburner. Run Prime 95 small FFT and see what your temps are. What voltage are you running? If you're doing any higher than 1.35, that CPU would easily hit high 80s-low 90s on that cooler.

Edit What stuff are you currently running to stress the CPU? I assume various games, but those are a pretty poor CPU stress test. They won't even bring it to 100% load, let alone what P95 will give you. When you do run P95, use version 26.6 or earlier. That was before they added AVX, and AVX will overheat your CPU with that little 212.

I was going to say the same thing. That's probably about the worst clocking RX 580 I've ever seen.

Comment reply on MagicEmu's Completed Build: Ragnarok

Even then, 5.1 on an 8700k almost always needs at least 1.38v, often upwards of 1.4. That's a crazy amount of heat, and a Hyper212 could never hope to cool it. It's not a bad cooler, but it really can't handle high heat loads.

I have a Seasonic Focus+ Gold 650W, and it's amazing. Even with a heavy overclock on my RX 58 (whole system draws around 300W), the fan is dead silent. Coming from me, that should mean a lot. I'm absolutely neurotic about noise. I even replaced the fans on my 580 with Noctua's, which run at 900 RPM while gaming and my case fans are at about 700 RPM. I wanted my system to be as quiet as possible, and this certainly achieved it. Not to mention you can usually find the 850W for only 20-30 dollars more than the 650W.

High power draw is half the fun with high end AMD GPUs. Seeing that number rise higher and higher makes me happier than words can describe.

Even then, the 2700x has an all core boost of around there, so just enabling PBO and keeping temps and power consumption down will help it boost to 4.1 all core and even higher on lightly threaded workloads.

There's really no point in overclocking the 2700x. It has a higher all core boost built in than the 3.8 GHz "overclock" you did. Not sure if you can do this on X370, but it's better to just enable PBO, and have a small negative voltage offset.

Looks pretty good, could do with some better cable management around the SSD. Get a nice braided SATA cable and an extension for the power cable, and it'll look nice and spiffy in no time.

A GTX 1080 should be boosting far higher than 1750, even on stock settings thanks to GPU Boost 3.0. Look at the actual boost clocks you see while playing games to see the actual frequency.

I see your point. I'm currently in the process of building my bench, and since I'm on such a short budget, the cost of LN2 is just too much. BartX has a really great affordable DICE/LN2 pot that I'm looking to get. I also don't bench that often, and it needs to be my daily system, so going to the store and picking up a couple pounds of dry ice is far easier than ordering LN2. I'm really jealous of that test bench though. I'm having to build mine out of a scrap Cooler Master case, as actual test benches are just crazy expensive. Good luck with your overclocking endeavors!

Now you just need to get in on that sweet DICE action. Great way to get high clocks, without the expense of liquid nitrogen.

If the heatsink bothers you that much, you may be able to RMA it. I'm not sure whether they would do it, but Noctua has some of the best warranty in the industry. Even their fans have a 6 year warranty. Great build, looks awesome.

x8 has enough bandwidth for a GPU. If it didn't far fewer people would run SLI configurations. Mainstream Intel platforms only have 16 PCI-E lanes with a direct connection to the CPU, which means that two GPU's will get 8 lanes each. Same goes for AMD, although I think X470 has an extra four lanes dedicated to NVME devices though that may require a 2nd gen Ryzen CPU. He should definitely move it to the top slot, just not for bandwidth reasons, unless that slot connects through the PCH, in which case there may be latency issues.

Not at all how that works. At most, he would get 1-2% higher framerate from the bandwidth increase. Any real performance gains he gets will be from improvements in thermals, which determines clockspeed.

Second U12A build so far, and I'm loving it.

Comment reply on WhatsaSasuke's Completed Build: Msi/Deadpool Build

x8 will provide literally no performance difference as long as it is a direct connection to the CPU. If it goes through the PCH first, then there probably will be some performance loss. However, he will be getting sub optimal thermals because of how restricted the GPU fans are, which at the very least would increase noise levels. That cooler isn't the best, and the card's positioning isn't doing it any favors.

They are going to be releasing/announcing Zen 2 products. There is no official word on Navi, but we do know the release of Zen 2 is mid summer.

Navi isn't coming out in June. All estimates point to something more like August-October. We also don't really know anything about it. This could be another over-promise under-deliver situation like Vega.

It's probably just lack of airflow in the case, and the hot air from the GPU being dumped into the CPU area.

For running VM's like he does, Intel has no competition that matches the core count per dollar of AMD. The VM's also explain the sheer amount of SSD storage.

You don't need an AIO, you can get the same performance from an air cooler, just not the Hyper 212.

It's just the special anniversary edition of the 8700k. It celebrates the 8086 processor, which kinda revolutionized and defined how computing works, even today. It's just a binned 8700k.

You should be hitting significantly higher clocks than just 1860 MHz. I'd suspect your temperatures are higher than they should be do to your GPU placement. Move it up to the top slot so it can breathe. Other than that, really nice build.

"Load" can mean many different things. That could be just gaming load, or it could be P95 small FFT. Temperature also depends on the rest of the config, such as case, fans, and ambient temperature.
