  1. it depends. micron memory is very different from samsung. you can mix and match and it might work to get good compatibility you want the dies on the chip to be from the same vendor you can see the die using cpu-z.
  2. yes. even the 1080 ti wont run all games at 60fps max i turn down shadows and hairworks AA in witcher 3 and that is an old title. likewise i turn down a few settings in tomb raider, shadows? forget which. i recommend looking at the nvidia guide for game settings and reducing a few settings from ultra to high. generally settings like shadows result in little visual difference between high and ultra but cost a lot of FPS.

    x99 oc help plz

    yes. 4x2400mhz (9600Mhz total) sticks will be faster than 2x3000 sticks (6000Mhz total). different ram sticks clock different i really like the cheap/old crucial/micro ddr4 2400 or 2666 kits. I run my sticks 8x4GB 2400CL13 @ 1.3v. I might be able to reduce the timings more. This is the kit I got on eBay a few days ago. less than 70 USD for 16Gb and really good on quad channel mobo. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Crucial-Ballistix-16GB-4x4GB-DDR-4-RAM-2666MHz-16-17-17-36-1-2V/223516707574?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649
  4. sure if you turn down the settings. also a 1080 ti is recommend for 4k over the 1080. 630 is the ballpark for a used 1080 ti.

    x99 oc help plz

    x99 needs blck to get 3000Mhz+ on ram. you'll need to reduce your CPU multiplier with that said, i'd be really surprised if you notice any performance gains with the 3000mhz ram over the 2400mhz 2400 quad channel = 4800 dual channel post up some benchmarks to confirm you see performance gains. also 4.2ghz is a little bit low. most people can hit 4.4ghz.
  6. my score (9958-67fps) was 4k max w/ the Strix with max power & voltage setting. I wanted to see how my 5820k compared to a modern CPU. I'm really happy I got this cpu over the 4790k back in 2014. 5 years and no bottleneck. So much future proofing.
  7. Look at stream hardware survey: over 50% of gamers have 4 core CPUs. Most are going to be 8t. So devs will optimize games for 4c/8t. Post up your 4K result

    5820K - Should I upgrade?

    No, get a 1080 Ti and another 16GB of Ram to run in the full quad channel. A 8700k/9700k OC'd is about 30% faster than 5820k OC'd. But at 1440p, with a 1080 TI, most games will only see a 6% decrease, on avg, from the 5820k.

    GPU BUY Assistance!

    used mining gpu on ebay. rx480 580, gtx 1060, gtx 1070 ti.

    motherboard for i5 9600k

    Yes it;s good. Biggest factor is the ram speed. You want to see 4400mhz supported by the mobo.

    Upgrade or not?

    buy a used 1080 ti. else get the 2080. I dont think the 2070 is worth it.
  12. i would buy g. gkill 4400mhzCL19 or 4000mhzCL17 ram.
  13. 2nd this, Ram speed is very important on dual channel setups.
