Is this a troll? If so, your sarcasm is brilliant. Otherwise; What do you do that you can see these noticeable differences from ddr3 to ddr4 RAM alone?

I just jumped on the 980ti wagon so late but my hopes were to have THE top of the line card, I hate to have spent $680 and still be a generation behind.

This may be the best idea. Though at $600 I don't see the 1080 dropping in price even at the release of a 1080 ti. These nvidia prices are so aggressive it's intimidating. AMD stock should be pretty cheap to buy come June.

Yea I guess there isn't much to do but wait for reviews on real world performance. Just hate to hang on to this 980 ti until release and have to sell it for less than $500, really unhappy about the timing. This presumed leap in performance is ridiculous. Never imagined the first offering from new gen would supercede the top of the line current offering.

That's what they said. But does it translate that way in the real world is what I'm hesitant on. Hopefully reviews come out soon.

Depends on the game. I'd say most games yes. But long-term with new AAA titles you may not be able to max out all settings.

I have a 780 ti on my 1440p screen. I cant max out all games, but tweaking with shadows and lighting settings makes it nearly indistinguishable from maxed out settings.

I'd say for 100% maxing crap out on 1080p at 60fps for the foreseeable future, you're gonna need a 970 (bout $100 more than the 380)

The Fractal Design looks great, do does the NZXT S340 Black. Stay away from the Spec-03, I had it and it just didnt make me happy in the long run. Nothing against corsair, my current case is a Corsair Air 540, just something about the Spec line.

Thank you.. I was thinking more along the lines of a quad core; i5 3xxx or 4xxx

would you say the R9 390 will max AAA games at 1080p/60fps?

No bottlenecks (you would need 3 or 4-way SLI with 980ti's or Titans to bottleneck a recent i7 so no worries)

Skylake is great but you're comparing a quad core to a recent gen hyper-threaded-quad core. The i7 will win every time, especially noticeable during rendering.

What's your budget? I recently upgraded from 1080p to the PG278Q ROG SWIFT and have enjoyed it greatly. I've had it for 2-3 months and have had nothing but great experiences with it, it's a very immersive screen. I'm running it on a 780 ti with little trouble. https://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-90lm00u0b01370

They also have the IPS version out now for a bone-chilling $800.

Sounds good, I will play with the fan curves and see what I get. Thanks a lot for the help and brainstorming.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "HELP wit Radiator/Fan Configuration"

  • 49 months ago

Theyre all stock, i havent adjusted the curve. The Noctuas came with low noise adapters which I had on.

I just removed the low noise adapters and reran kombuster; the GPU max temp is still 83C. However, to my surprise, the CPU temp is now 66C max which I'm a lot happier with than the 72-73 it was hitting before.

I always use my Cloud 2s (the passive noice cancelation is so good you'd think it's active) when I'm on my PC so I would gladly sacrifice noise if it can get that GPU under 80. The Noctuas are pretty quiet even at higher RPMs and the Corsair is a quiet edition so even if I crank them up they shouldn't be too bad.

I guess the next step would be cranking up the fan curve huh? Thanks for the enlightenment.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "HELP wit Radiator/Fan Configuration"

Thanks!

Under load GPU temps hit the 70s and low 80s (83c max). The CPU is hitting 60s and low 70s when they're both under load.

I would like to get the GPU to mid 70s max temp and the CPU to mid 60s max temp. I'm starting to wonder if that's even realistic with my current hardware.

I'm thinking of replacing the thermal paste on the GPU with IC Diamond 7 as I did with my CPU to see if that does anything.

The 2 Noctua NF-F12 are on the h100i radiator pulling air out of the case. The 2 Noctua NF-A14 are in the front pushing air into the case. The Corsair AF 140 is in the rear pulling air out of the case.

FYI: Ended up purchasing the Rog Swift PG278Q. Newegg had it on sale for $550 which made a lot more sense when compared to the $500 benq.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Thoughts On GeForce GTX 750Ti"

  • 49 months ago

The 750ti is powered by the PCIe slot, you do not need additional power.

I have an EVGA 750ti SC in my son's build. It runs that card and an i5 4460 on a CX430W PSU with absolutely no issues.

He plays mainly Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. The 750ti runs the game locked at 60fps with all settings maxed out, including AA on a 1600 x 900 screen. I don't know how demanding those games are but I would imagine 60fps+ on medium settings is reasonable to expect from that card at 1080p or lower res.

so when a game dips to say 45fps for a few minutes, you dont notice a difference with g-sync?

lol.. The PB287Q is TN, yes. The PB278Q is IPS which I really like but the only thing it's missing is 144hz.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Freesync Monitor with Nvidia GPU"

I have not. How so though? I've been playing 1080p Ultra settings on everything at 60hz up to this point and havent found it to bad or poor in any way. I do feel like I'd like to experience higher resolution, etc. As far as game play itself, what would you say makes playing with g-sync the best thing ever? What happens when you exceed the fps range in your personal experience?

The PB278Q is indeed an IPS monitor pal, all you have to do is look it up.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Freesync Monitor with Nvidia GPU"

One: your argument against getting g-sync is predicated on a perceived value propositions, and yet you openly state you're willing to purchase a new gpu to support the somewhat cheaper free sync monitor.

I said I'd consider getting a Fury X "down the line", meaning a year plus when I'd be looking at a new GPU regardless. (in fact I noted "way down the line")

I don't consider running an nvidia gpu with a free sync monitor to be a suitable solution, you're still spending more money on a feature that does nothing for you. That's a true waste of money.

I'm paying for the 1440p resolution at 144hz. Like you previously stated you can't find them without frame-sync. If there was one available without frame-sync than I would go for that.

Thanks for the valuable input though... I have considered waiting to see what the holiday season brings to the market and prices, if I find a reasonable deal on a ROG Swift than that would be merry.

Alright I didnt know you actually enabled/disable the technology. As far as an unreasonable premium; What other 27in, 1440p, 144hz monitor is there for <$500? I know of the Acer XG270HU but I have a friend whom has had issues with his and I personally would prefer BenQ or Asus.

The next best thing would be the Asus PB278Q which has everything I want for $400, including IPS except it's only 60hz.

So, looks like it will be the G-Sync monitor after all. I scored a Gygabyte 780ti Ghz Edition in exchange for my 770 and $80 so I'm pretty set as far as GPUs go for the time beiung.

I ended up buying Noctua fans after a while which made my AIO silent. If you're overly concerned with noise, buy the Noctua NH-D15 it's silent and high performance. With headphones you should be fine, I mean it's not like you're putting a diesel truck next to you.

That's amazing. Honestly that's PERFECT for my needs. I wouldn't want it under 70fps so it looks like I would need at least the 390X to meet what I am looking for. This helps a ton, more than anything I found out there. Thanks pal!
