  1. Past hour
  2. Passed yet another Mondeo on the way to Uni lmao.


    For something which apparently didn't sell well there seems to be a decent concentration of them around here.

    Dr Su will present Zen 2 and Navi at Computex 2019 (May 27th)

    Its just a shame they don't have the same level of confidence from network admins as Intel. If companies were confident they could upgrade fleet systems and servers to AMD with little risk of down time they'd be able to capitalise a lot more.

    Gtx1070ti or 1070sli

    You could do it as a favour for your friend, but if it were me and was only concerned with my gaming performance I'd just sell the 1070 run with 1 1070ti. Sure 1070 SLI CAN be faster when it works, but SLI has been going downhill for the last few years and I wouldn't bother messing with it these days.

    Gaming Build - is this good??

    Except people dont care about either. They only care about noise and the 2600x isnt known as a especially noisy CPU. Edit: nor powerhungry And this small sifference of 15-20% performance increase has shown to be critical in longevity when it comes to CPUs. Especially in a shifting market as shown with every 4c/4t CPU from 2nd gen to 7th gen. And bow we are moving to 10/12/16 cores on the high end in a shifting market. That HT is going to be more important than during the dormant CPU age between 2010 and 2017

    Which display?

    Even if you are not a competitive gamer you should not settle for a 60hz panel especially when you have such a capable GPU. I think you should go for a 144 hz panel for without HDR ( You can go for the Samsung CHG70 curved 1440p with 144hz and HDR for 450$. It is a bit expensive but you can wait a little to save some more money and make no compromises) Hope this helps. monitor link-https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824022583&Description=HDR monitor&cm_re=HDR_monitor-_-24-022-583-_-Product
  7. Cheezits...Nvidia Turing has been a complete mess.  The new GTX 1650 is an entry-level card with an acceptable performance boost and TDP, but horrible pricing.


    I can't wait for Navi to come in and shake things up... :D

    what are you running this speed test to? Try running it with iperf on the local network.
  9. I am planning to do an upgrade to the 3rd gen ryzen cpus and with that I will change my case(at least try to, it depends on cpu+mobo prices) to the corsair crystal 280x with the h100i aio cooler and 2 LL120 RGB fans and I would try to still use the fans than come included with the case(doesn't come with rgb fans) adding to a total of 6 fans(aio on top(x2 ML120+ 240mm rad)+ x2 LL120RGB at thefront + x2 ML120 at the bottom). And I haven't found any stores(in spain) that sell the corsair hub other than corsair's web site. But they do sell other fan hub like this ones: https://www.pccomponentes.com/aerocool-project-7-p7-h1-hub-controlador-rgb-para-ventiladores https://www.amazon.es/Thermaltake-Commander-FP-Concentrador-Ventiladores/dp/B015KG6HP0/ref=asc_df_B015KG6HP0/?tag=googshopes-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=82853727250&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=639400820513735638&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9061047&hvtargid=pla-260963482478&psc=1 I've also though of using something like this and connect it on to the mobo. https://www.amazon.es/DEEPCOOL-Fan-HUB-Multiplicador-ventiladores/dp/B008YD7B0M/ref=asc_df_B008YD7B0M/?tag=googshopes-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=301006161094&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=639400820513735638&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9061047&hvtargid=pla-404766633119&psc=1 Does anyone know if this two methods would work. Thx

    Its got good enough VRM to hold it stock. And the 9900k and perhaps a theoretical 10 core 14nm CPU during the summer. As the only upgrade paths. Now i havent doublechecked, that looks an awful lot like the exact same VRM as the B450 parts use. Though dont quote me on that one. Its either that or the budget X470 board.

    Yes, but it's not making a difference right now. Assassin's Creed USES 12 threads and yet the 9400F still wins. That's why I said IF these trends continue. Also having 12 threads doesn't really mean much. The end performance numbers are what matters. SMT/HTT doesn't mean you actually have double of anything tangible. It's just a fancy way of saying that the chip can force the cores to do more work between their "down time" (in between clock cycles), and at the expense of a lot more heat and power consumption.

    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.

    Nvidia GTX 1650 available RIGHT NOW; $149

    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.
  19. 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.

    i5 9600k v i7 8700k / 9700k

    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?
  22. jerubedo

    Gaming Build - is this good??

    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?

    Gaming Build - is this good??

    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
