  1. I guess that pretty much confirms it to be credible. Thanks to everyone who has posted I really appreciated your help.
  2. Ya I also saw that on their website but maximum temperature does not necessarily mean the temperature at which it starts throttling.
  3. Ya I saw that post as well. The problem I have with it was it seemed to be the only post I could that had the information about what the operation temps of the GTX Titan. So Im not sure how credible the information is or even were the original poster even got it from. So that's why i posted on here to get a second opinion or if someone know more information.
  4. But are the tolerances the same between the Titan X and the normal Titan? I thought the Titan X was a different architecture.
  5. Knowing him he probably needs to clean it out anyway so I will have to ask him when the last time he cleaned it. I still have no way of clarifying if it actually is throttling because I do not know what the normal temperature range of operation is.
  6. Its not a GTX Titan X its a regular GTX Titan.
  7. I can tell when a GPU is throttling. The problem I am having it my friend does not know much about computers and all I have to go on is the bits of information he give me. I know different GPU's have different tolerances for how much heat they can handle. "Increase the fan speed GPU. Add more fans to the case for better airflow." I understand this and I have already conveyed this message to my friend. I suspect hes throttling but I do not know whats normal operating temperature for a GTX Titan is. I am more a AMD expert.
  8. My friend is having issues with his GTX Titan and I think hes is thermal throttling at 87c. I cant seem to find a direct answer searching forums about were his temps should be at. I was wondering if anyone else has experience dealing with GTX Titan cards could help clarify when it should start to thermal throttle. Thanks.
  9. Its a game of risk vs reward. You could sell now and make more money back on the r9 390 but you have no idea of the real world performance of the RX480. Which you could strike out and could have been better off with the 390 unlikely but still possible. You could play it safe and wait for RX480 reviews but you run into the problem of not getting as much back if you sell it. I to am conflicted.
  10. Well considering store stocks of the GTX 1070 is expected to sell out almost immediately like it does with every new GPU release if you sell you GPU now you could be left waiting a while until your lucky enough to catch them in stock.
  11. The FX6300 has a max core clock of 3.5Ghz and 4.1GHz with turbo core. Dont be miss lead turbo core does not give the same performance results as having all cores running stable at the same speed all the time. It slows down some of your cores clocks to boots others to a higher clock. So the the FX6300 can only have one core at 4.1Ghz, two cores at 3.8Ghz, or all at 3.5ghz. While the FX 6350 is running all cores at 3.9Ghz all the time which is better then the FX 6300. I highly doubt that it cant handle whatever GPU he selects. Even if the does bottleneck it will only be a insignificant performance hit of like 2-5fps drop comparatively.
  12. The best thing I have found for cleaning out a computer case is with a horse hair paintbrush and using a air compressor lightly using a blow gun nozzle.
  13. Unlikely the FX 8350 is a good to pair with SLI or Crossfire setups. Intel chips mostly only support up to 24 PCIE lanes of bandwidth. So if your running 2 GPU's on Intel one of them is bottlenecked only getting half the bandwidth at 8x. Unless you spend a bunch of money with their Haswell or Broadwell series CPU's you wont be supplying all the GPU's with full 16x PCIE bandwidth. The FX 8350 supports up to 38 lanes of PCIE bandwidth at a very affordable price.
  14. Ultimately you do what you think is best for you. I am just giving you my advise. If you want to go the AMD FX path I would recommend maybe spending a little bit more to get a FX 6350 which runs at 3.9ghz instead of 3.5ghz. Games benefit more from CPU's with faster core speeds then number of cores. You would still be just fine with the FX 6300 though. You could always try overclocking the FX 6300 to FX6350 specs to save some money. Just something to think about.
