    monjessenstein reacted to TofuHaroto in rx 580 low fps   
    Please don't compare your results with others 
    There are way to many factors to affect that 
    Watch a reputable source Like gamer Nexus or hardware unboxed.
    Specs ? 
    Temps ?

    1.48?!?!?! 
    Well there's your answer

    monjessenstein reacted to Viper9 in Ryzen 5 3600 vs Ryzen 5 2600X   
    I would pick the R5 3600 for the better IPC.

    monjessenstein reacted to Streetguru in I7-9700k vs i5-9600k   
    There's no real reason to upgrade one for gaming so no one is getting rid of them I'd imagine.
     
    should never buy your PC in pieces btw, woulda been better off with an R5 3600 most likely
     
    unless you can return the motherboard.

    monjessenstein reacted to TheThymo in 1600 Mhz memory stick labeled at 1333 Mhz on HWinfo   
    Rated at and Running at are two different things. I'm quite sure you need to change the speed to 1600 in the bios.

    monjessenstein reacted to RadiatingLight in Need help with PC Parts i just picked for my new Build   
    what country exactly? if your country is supported in pcpartpicker.com you should use that.
     
    I'd reccomend a slightly better power supply (PSU tier list in my sig)
    Your motherboard MIGHT not work out of the box, since it might require a BIOS update for 3000 series CPUs. I'd reccomend trying to get an msi "MAX" series board, which is guaranteed to work out of the box with 3rd gen. (there is also a motherboard tier list in my signature, try to get at least tier C)
  9. Agree
    monjessenstein reacted to nox_ in Will a motherboard that doesn't have an "X" or "Z" in the name work with the auto-overclock on my GPU   
    It refers to intel cpu's only. Does not apply to gpu's.

    monjessenstein reacted to Princess Luna in Will RTX 2080S get bottlenecked by i7 7700? Need expert opinion!   
    Should be fine, the CPU is indeed the weaker link but it won't be as bad as it seems specially because you're targeting ultra settings which will put more workload on the GPU.
     
    I had the same i7 7700 paired with a 1080 Ti in the past and it played out fine enough, I just recommend avoiding multi-tasking when you play demanding games. As it is I only suggest upgrading when Intel's 10th gen is launched and see if they'll improve pricing.
  11. Agree
    monjessenstein reacted to steelo in Amd 220Ge vs pentuim 5400 gold   
    Personally, I would spend the extra $10-15 and get the Ryzen 3 1200 or 2200g (quad cores). Both CPU's you listed are VERY low end but the pentium is slightly more powerful. I'm not completely certain they wouldn't bottleneck your GTX 1060 
     
    Unless this is a basic work email PC, saving $15 just is not worth it.
  12. Agree
    monjessenstein got a reaction from Sety in OnePlus 7 Pro : the perfect smartphone?   
    I honestly think the only thing they could add is an official IP rating, though that costs money and excluding it probably helps keep the price down somewhat.

    monjessenstein reacted to Olaf6541 in SSD not showing full capacity after cloning   
    Better to rightclick the existing C partition and expand it so you wont get another partition, but thats indeed whats going on.

    monjessenstein got a reaction from TheFalcro in CPU you use, and why?   
    Got a 1600, mainly just because it came with a good box cooler, good long term support for the cpu compared to the intel chips at the time (7000 series) and was banking on games becoming more multithreaded in the future, which I'd say payed of.
  15. Agree
    monjessenstein got a reaction from PopsicleHustler in Is this a coil whine? 20-30% load   
    I might be wrong, but that sounds more like a pump than coil whine, I remember coil whhine having a much higher pitch.
  16. Agree
    monjessenstein reacted to Fasauceome in I'm thinking of buying a PC   
    Is this for gaming purposes? If you go with a Ryzen 5 3600 and B450 motherboard, you could probably put more money towards a graphics card for even better performance.

    monjessenstein reacted to rcmaehl in iBone the Repair industry - Apple locks down batteries, marking own batteries as degraded   
    Source:
    iFixIt (Quote source)
    Rossmann Repair Group (media source)
     
    Summary:
    Apple has embedded a micro-controller in batteries themselves, linking them to a single iPhone. Replacing the battery will any battery, including from another iPhone will mark the battery as degraded

    Media:
     
    Quotes/Excerpts:
     
    My Thoughts:
    I can understand embedding a microcontroller to verify battery authenticity, but to lock a single battery to a single phone and mark other authentic batteries as degraded is just plain toxic. Surely this will bring up some lawsuits as if this was a car such as iFixIt pointed out, there would be absolute outrage. I would really love for media to spin this as "Apple may be selling bad batteries, swapping batteries between two iphones will suddenly mark both as bad" but I'm sure that's defamation/slander as it's misrepresenting the truth. Hopefully, the repair community will get some leaked tools to reset these micro-controllers or equipment is made to quickly swap the micro-controllers as well.

    monjessenstein reacted to WereCatf in New AMD drivers bricking cards   
    If the GPU still works, then it's not bricked. Drivers not working is not the same thing as being bricked.

    Considering Microsoft is a sponor of Mclaren, you might have to run Linux instead of Windows ;D.

    You probably have already, but if not I highyl recommend Terraria. Cost a few bucks during sales and you can easily sink hundreds of hours into it.

    monjessenstein reacted to Dedayog in Air cooling is king?   
    Too many variables to say definitively.  Air Cooling is very good and AIO's have their uses outside of just raw cooling.  Depends on what you want out of it.

    It might support 8K, but no way is it going to run games at that resolution (unless we're talking single color puke textures).
