  1. That CPU has terrible single thread performance. I didn't even include 10980XE. Passmark is kinda irrelevant for my use but I think I would be around 2700-2800 single thread. 9900K (not even KS) destroys my 7800X in photoshop for things I do. But for some reason After Effect sucks on everything except Intel HEDT for my use.... This really sucks cuz I honestly think intel HEDT pricing is stupid.
  2. Hello everyone! First of all, I am upgrading CPU of an existing rig. My current rig is: https://valid.x86.fr/ml3qyb (Basically i7-7800X @ 5GHz, 64GB, Quadro P2000 if you don't wanna click) My choice are: i9-10900X (3.7GHz base / 4.3GHz All core boost / 4.7GHz Single core boost) 10 Core, 20 Thread i9-10920X (3.5GHz base / 4.3GHz All core boost / 4.8GHz Single core boost) 12 Core, 24 Thread i9-10940X (3.3GHz base / 4.1GHz All core boost / 4.8GHz Single core boost) 14 Core, 28 Thread My main usage of this PC is Photoshop and After Effect. They both strongly prefer single thread performance. However, I do use quite a bit of Premiere Pro which prefers multi thread performance. I do like the higher base clock of 10900X but I feel like it's a poorly binned CPU because of it's low boost clock. It's so weird how highest base clock has the lowest boost clock, even with the lowest core count. I like the core numbers of 10940X but all core boost is kinda low. I also don't really benefit from all those cores for my main use case. 10920X is what I personally think is the best CPU for me because of highest clock and decent core count. However, I wanted some feedback from the community before I commit to a CPU because it is about $1000 (at least when you convert to Canadian $ T-T). Side note: I have tested Ryzen 3600X (and 2700X) and for some reason my 7800X was always significantly faster. (For my usage) I don't know if this is because of AVX-512 or Quad Channel RAM or other reasons... But something about what I do prefers intel HEDT. (sadly... like really sadly.....) Also it's sample size of 1 so take it with a grain of salt....
  3. I'm waiting for i9-10920X to hit the shelf. I'll most likely run that without OC. I prefer silence over performance within a reasonable performance difference.
  4. 15mins stress test is between 90-100C I guess it's a good chip but not jackpot then. At least better than my gaming rig 4770K that straight up refuses anything over 4.4ghz....
  5. https://valid.x86.fr/ml3qyb?fbclid=IwAR0QSuq2A7zJBSpfy7pupp36prDaXhLSh32TYr6kw8wEC45T7F7mNRhzt9A Basically I hit 5.0GHz with 7800X. I used custom waster cooler is 120 + 360 rad (only CPU) Stressing the CPU makes it go about 90C but that's not too bad for this 3.5ghz to 5ghz OC. So, my question is: is this a silicon jackpot or just a good silicon? Or maybe even average?
  6. That's an hour drive for me. I'd prefer a quick mail but LG centre will do as long as they give me replacement. If they tell me to wait anything more than 5 days for them to fix, I can't. I need that screen for work. I bought a somewhat color accurate HDR monitor for a reason. I will try again tomorrow but I'm not too happy right now EDIT: After talking to them on the phone, I have decided not to go to the store. They said they will not replace my unit. They will "fix" my monitor. However, they said minimum 2 weeks assuming all the parts are in. But mostly likely they will need to ship my parts in and they don't know how long they will take. I need this monitor for work and even with this burn-in it's better than not having a monitor at all. I will eventually buy a new monitor (probably over black friday). I'll be honest, LG makes nice displays but I don't think I will get their product again because of the experience I've had. The guy on the phone was even more rude than the guy on chat.
  7. So... This just happened...... This guy literally doesn't listen to me, says what he wants and leaves instantly. I didn't even get to ask him my other questions because he left 2 seconds after posting whatever he wanted to say. (Check time stamp, actual 2 sec) I have gone through countless RMA and this is probably the worst experience I've ever had.
  8. It's not permanent and it goes away in 10-30minutes (varies randomly) This panel did not do this before. I would have returned it if this showed this symptom from the start.
  9. Sorry for crap quality video, you need to set it at highest quality to see this. Youtube has terrible bitrate so it's hard to see at low resolution. Basically my first screen with text stays on top of my other darker tabs. And IPS burn in occurs less than OLED. Doesn't mean it does not happen. I think I really bumbed out on this panel
  10. Here is a video of my screen burn in and this is when I got my monitor. I have no clue how to deal with Monitor RMA. https://youtu.be/oJ0u6q05VNQ
  11. I've actually heard from multiple sources that videocards with just PCI-E power without additional cable does not need so much VRM cooling. I guess I'll just buy some small heatsinks that can stick on just for some extra safety and use EK Thermosphere. this will look pretty awful tho DX not that Quadro P2000 ever looked good....
  12. Problem is that I can't find a "good" GPU block for 1060 either. At least I can't find one that covers the VRam under the gpu (right above PCI connector) and the small VRM on the left. Are there any suggestions for this?
  13. Hello everyone! Currently I have a 360 rad (no fan) and a 120 rad (EK vardar fan) water loop cooling just the CPU. I couldn't find a Corsair Hydro X part that fits my Quadro P2000 so I was looking for an alternative. I found that EK Thermosphere will work with my Qaudro, but I am concerned about my VRM heats as EK Thermosphere only cools the GPU. This card does not have 6pin connector. It only uses PCI-E power. So it does not run too hot. But it comes with this tiny cooler and it's SUUUUPER LOUD. As you can see on the photos, it's such a tiny blocks of VRM and I am wondering where I can find a heatsink that thin... Edit: I also want to add that I only opened to check the PCB. However, when I changed the thermal paste as I reassembled, it dropped the load temp by around 15-20 C.... LOL This is probably the worst stock TIM I've ever seen!
  14. Yep, they are part of motherboard. It's Aorus X299 Gaming 9. Thanks
