80 dollar difference.
Would Flashing reduce the lifespan of the GPU? Might consider that.
I live in Canada, a Reference 5700 is atleast 80$ Canadian more expensive on a good day. Over 100$ Canadian for an AIB model. I would rather spend that money on a good couple of games.
Why did you go for SLI 2070s?
Not really the K variant boosts much high and has a higher base clock. it makes a noticeable difference in games with a higher end graphics card, unsure of the difference with a 1660.
Yeah my T2 has been going strong for three years Damn nice cooler for the price, easier to install than the 212 as well.
Do you mind sharing what video card was in the system for some of the pictures.
I am not the best person to answer that question, I have very little experience streaming, but if you go to reddit.com/r/buildapc you should be able to ask questions like that to people who do know what they are talking about.
I do believe he is talking about AMD GPUs, which don't have as good encoders which increases load on the CPU, an AMD CPU in a streaming build is great and provides better performance than Intel and your budget, but if you are looking to stream it makes sense to go with a NVIDIA GPU over a comparable AMD one.
This case has a top mounted PSU and no bottom fans, he is all good.
Could you not enable XMP on the motherboard? I thought the B360 chipset supported that...
Can we get a picture of how you cable managed this and the cable routing.
I used to use the same CPU! Until my mobo died. I decided to upgrade to an I3 8100 after that.
What are you using this system for?
If I set this card up in a larger case with more airflow could I get more than a 100MHz OC?
Dpends on where you live, currently in Canada this CPU is 65$ and the 2200G is 120$. Everything changes depending on where you live.
Hey, wait did you forget to plug one of the 4+4 pin connectors into the mobo. Or did the PSU only come with one four pin connect?
Interesting work around for the ridiculous cost of GPUs now a days, seems pretty good.
According to paul it is its drivers fault, have made sure all of them are up to date.
AMD drivers here: https://www.amd.com/en/support
Though you probably already did that.....
