    Gaming Build - is this good??

    Except that historically non-ht vs ht CPUs the HT CPUs are still holding their own a lot better than the non-HT CPUs. HT doesnt only allow for more performance, but also more pipelines to avoid stutter. Which again shows a big difference between the core i5 and core i7 CPUs today where the only seperating factor is HT.

    I think it was the RX 480 at launch that took too much power from the PCIe slot. I don't recall if there were any confirmed cases of damage from that, but it isn't something you want to do.

    I don't have the facts to back this up, but I believe that 12 is more than 6. Don't quote me on that, I don't have any sources.

    ZOROG project

    Because aesthetic reason and position of MB, you will see :) After a short break, I am back to work on the project ZOROG, the tool for cutting and bending copper pipes has arrived :)

    The UD is by no means a poor board. It's quite a good one for the money. It can even house the 9900K without an OC. It's better than many of the other more expensive Z390 boards outside of the Gigabyte lineup.
  8. I came in and asked for a replacement and he couldn't replace the board due to those scratched capacitors. So he gave me a reference number and said he would sent it to Asus for repares. If I wasn't an idiot at putting a CPU cooler in I wouldn't be in this mess.

    What software suite do you use? The quick answer would be to wait for Zen 2.

    did anyone remember a gpu that was drawing more power on default pcie slot 75w? can they do this "mod" on a 1650?

    One thing I will say with regards to this point, is that IF the performance trends we see here hold up (12 threaded games still being better on the 9400F) on the whole between the 9400F and the 2600x, and the developer landscape changes and new titles prefer the next gen CPUs with even more cores, both will equally fall behind.

    NEW PSU Tier List

    I'd update both when the systems are upgraded. The VS is fine for a low power GPU like the 560. The Core is fine, it's just that we don't really recommend it in modern systems comparing to its newer, same price counterparts.

    Gtx1070ti or 1070sli

    Hi! I have a Asus GTX 1070 strix, I wasn't looking for a new card but I gota reeeealy good deal for a GTX 1070ti. (A so good deal that I would earn money money if I sold it). So now I have to gpus, I can only use one of them other then when I'm rendering. I have a friend who has a Asus OC GTX 1070. My question is: Should I exchange my 1070ti with his 1070 so I can run sli? Then we both get an upgrade? Any thoughts on what i should do?

    That would be the one title i was thinking of then. But with the exception of this. The 9400 is not a safe bet, its more expencive with the inclusion of the cooler that you prefferably should include. The Z390 board to avoid more 0,1% low issues in some titles. And getting a Z390 board on a budget involves pickin up a poor Z390 board. Which is not good for the allready limited upgrade path

    I think the change is supposed to be linked with the change in intensity of the same thing (bad electricity) that messed the PC up in the first place. There is something we can try, if possible try resetting cmos and drivers at a new place/city. After resetting cmos you can also add one more step, press and hold the power button for a minute while pc is unplugged but at a new place. Maybe at a friend's house who don't have these issues. I will try these things myself when i'll go back to my old house (where i had no issues) in few months. I'll go back to my old house just to verify if the components are damaged OR resetting cmos will have any affect or not. Maybe i won't have to reset cmos as it might recover itself.

    Guru3D reviewed Zotac 1650 w/o power connector but Hilbert don't have expensive equipment to test power consumption accurately like TPU and TomsHw did. I can't do cross comparison between TPU and G3D because they both use different in game quality setting and TPU doesn't do synthetic bench.
  18. If you wear a red CPU colour you should go with higher frequency Ryzen compatible memory( 3000 or 3200). Gskill’s flare memory is great with Ryzen . But if you like the intel any kit from a reputable brands with frequency of 2660hz or above should serve you good. The kits you mention do have different cas latency but it doesn’t affect performance in any significant way so shouldn’t worry about it. If you crave a bit of RGBBBBBB Gskill’s Trident line up offers great performance in both intel and amd CPUs with reasonable pricing. If you can find any other RGB kit from a reputable brand (like the ones you mentioned)for similar or lower price that rubs you the right way then you should go for( just check which platform it is recommended for and keep the frequency constraint that I mentioned above in mind).

    Yay.  Another piece to the object.

    I agree on the whole. Both provide a relatively stutter-free experience. There is one exception from the video, though, here. But at this point it is just one example and you can say I'm cherry picking, and I couldn't argue there.

    Which is why I said if it sells better it would be for systems builders who want to spec the bare minimum PSU as well. The people that watch reviews are not likely to buy it, especially when the reviews (if they are any good) will be promoting the 570 as a better buy instead.

    quite confusing examples, new i7 have no hyperthreading ...

    no? the only difference between them historically has been HT. and those without HT have suffered a lot more when the market shifted

    I will say that in my personal experience with a Haswell i5, it can act strangely (keep in mind this is a personal anecdote). In some games like Minecraft it holds a steady 60 FPS but feels choppier than 30. On others like SW Battlefront 2015, it ran great.

    r5 2600x vs i5 9400f (100$ difference)+

    supply & demand, even for "same" performance. but really never seen a 2600 above $200....
