    RTX2060 or 1070 for i5 - 6500

    I tend to hold on to my parts for a stupidly long time. Till they cant do 30fps med/high. Will the 8gb vram make the 1070 pull ahead of the 2060 6GB in a few years?

    RTX2060 or 1070 for i5 - 6500

    HAHA yes im more worried about less airflow because 1 fan, so higher rpm and louder operation. Also If I upgrade my cpu after, would a ryzen 2600x and B450 mobo be ok. Id try OC my 2133mhz ram on it to avoid replacing it with higher clock ram. Also am I just overthinking it for 1080p and I shouldnt worry about CPU upgrade just yet.

    RTX2060 or 1070 for i5 - 6500

    I know my CPU is mediocre at this point, but would I notice a difference between the 1070 and rtx 2060 in most cases, for maintaining 75hz. And would it be a dumb idea to get the 1070 with a better form factor and noise vs the $10 cheaper 2060 XC if I decided not to spend the extra $40 for the Ultra 2060? At this point im too worried so I might just get the 1070. Plus the price of a 1070 may be paid by the post company to replace it. Im starting to realize how limiting my cpu may become.

    RTX2060 or 1070 for i5 - 6500

    So long story short my 1070 was stolen on the way to warranty repair and I need to get a new GPU. Current prices put my EVGA 1070 $10 above the EVGA 2060 XC and $40 below the EVGA 2060 XC ultra. I would probably buy the 1070 over the 2060 XC as the XC is a very short card and takes 3 slots. Also 1 fan means more noise. However im considering the $40 extra for a 2060 XC Ultra. (im only buying EVGA). Im worried that it isnt worth that extra $40 due to my cpu and that I game at 1080p 75hz. There is a small chance of going 1440p but not in the immediate future. Im worried that the i5 6500 will bottleneck the 2060 further than the 1070. Although the 2060 XC is an undesirable form factor, its cheaper than a 1070 AND faster (but how much :/). What are your thoughts on my decision? bearing in mind I dont have the funds for a new cpu yet. 1070 with a nicer design, LED logo and quieter 2060 $40 more with no LED but dual fan form factor (bottleneck risk) 2060 $10 less with no LED and 3 slot short form factor, 1 fan. (bottleneck risk) I play Forza Horizon 4 a lot, which is not super CPU bound (DX12) so that is one good reason, but for everything else im unsure.
  5. So I'm quite annoyed with my PC, has been a pain in the butt since I built it. I seem to get more stuttering in GTA V on my recently brought 1070 than my crap RX480. On the RX480 it was only in sandy shores, but its quite random on the 1070. Mainly in the city but any were randomly. Stuttering means below 75fps (75hz screen). Its more than capable of 1080p @ 75. My CPU is an i5-6500, but I don't understand why my PC performs magically more crap than benchmarks and other people I know with the same specs. Forza Horizon 3 is also the same, although I've noticed it performs worse than it did a few months ago. I put it down to my HDD dying so moved it to SSD. But it still performs worse than I remember. Just getting frustrated by the unexplainable stuttering in many games (especially GTA and Forza). Would like advice, just want it to perform how I paid for it to. Cheers

    16GB CL16 vs 8GB CL14

    Basically will I loose performance going to CL16 or will the extra ram capacity outweigh this?
  7. Tweakforce_LG

    16GB CL16 vs 8GB CL14

    I dont have a choice for 16GB CL14, and am limited to 2133mhz. So there is no paying a bit more in this case.
  8. Tweakforce_LG

    16GB CL16 vs 8GB CL14

    how would I do that? will it typically just have better timings at that freq or do i have to change settings (locked as H170)
  9. I currently have Kingston HyperX 2x4GB 2133mhz CL14 sticks. I want to upgrade but the matching sticks are no longer sold in my country so I cannot add them in. I can however buy the HyperX 2x8GB 2600mhz CL16 kit to upgrade and sell my old ones. My motherboard is H170 so they will run at 2133mhz. Is 16GB at a slower CL16 latency going to be better than 8GB at CL14? Ive seen benchmarks of CL16 vs CL14 of the same ram size, however I do hope the ram increase would outweigh the 2-3fps that could be lost from slower timings. Some of my games only just hit 75fps (monitor refresh rate) so if I do loose 2-3fps I wont be too happy. Any advice?

    PSU RMA for GPU coil whine?

    that only works on inductors that are open. mine are sealed inside plastic housings filled with something. what a fat lot that does lol

    PSU RMA for GPU coil whine?

    I hope they are. However I've heard some horror stories about their RMA service.

    PSU RMA for GPU coil whine?

    My mic needs to be right up to it to pick it up properly, I dont have any good microphones. My ear picks it up with the case closed and sitting on my desk. Oh I wish I needed to be right up to it to hear it, because that wouldn' bother me one bit. I can hear it like you described with your 970, except even when capped at 60 and not just slightly

    PSU RMA for GPU coil whine?

    Mine makes both depending on the game. I get high pitch sound in rocket league. Is that loudness of the whine excessive? I could only ever hear a 1070 whine with my ear to the backplate... Bearly

    PSU RMA for GPU coil whine?

    Yep the card whines in other systems. So its not my seasonic m12ii evo 520w PSU. Here is the sound it produces when putting a crappy mic next to the inductors. Is this considered excessive? https://vocaroo.com/i/s1ypZPx5qONg This when playing Assassn's Creed Black Flag (causes the loudest whine)
  15. Tweakforce_LG

    PSU RMA for GPU coil whine?

    Its the GPU. But I've ruled out the PSU causing the GPU to whine. Hopefully I wont get another dud card back. Other people dont have whine on their rx480's so I hopefully will get a good one back.
