    KaitouX reacted to GoldenLag in 5700xt or 1080   
    Nope, 2070 is about 10-15% faster than the 1080. And the 5700xt is sandwiched between the 2070 and 2070s performance wise.
    Except every review ever hasnt come to that conclusion. 
     
    This is vs the 2070s which is a good bit faster than the 2070. Which again is 10-15% faster than the 1080. Not to mention the edge Turing, GCN and RDNA has in modern low level APIs. 
     
    Please stop making unsubstansiated claims. Its not the first time.

    KaitouX got a reaction from nox_ in Is this good enough???   
    1600AF is the same as the 2600, if you want just add that case and PSU to the build i suggested and it would be good(if you don't mind blowing the budget even more), the cooler is only necessary if you think the stock one is too loud otherwise it would be fine.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BrygonSan in cooling for i7 9700k   
    You probably shouldn't get a 9700K at this point, either go Ryzen or wait for the new Intel CPUs.

    Getting a product that is worse than other that costs the same doesn't make sense.

    He can get better SSDs for basically the same price, why would you recommend the QVO when options like the Crucial MX500 costs 5 dollars more? there are others that are cheaper and probably better than the QVO.
     
    CL19 3600Mhz performs mostly worse with Ryzen than CL16 3200MHz while costing the same or more.

    As you can see(or can't see) the EX version has better cooling and 30MHz higher clocks.

    KaitouX got a reaction from McChicken6677 in Upgrade Ryzen gen 1 to 3   
    It depends, with no information on game, resolution, in-game settings and so on there's no way to tell.
    Assuming 1080p, yes you would get better performance, only you can know if the difference is worth, but considering that you bought the 2080S I would assume that those 10% performance over the 2070S were important enough to pay a few hundred dollars, so yes it would probably be worth.
    Assuming 4K, probably it would make almost no difference in most games. 1440p would be in between.
    Personally I would wait for Zen 3 as it should be the last one on AM4 to get the best of the platform or get some cheaper Zen 2 option when it releases.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Deli in Closer to a spinning drive - consumer SSD reliability tested   
    For me the biggest benefit to SSDs is the silent operation, in my system the loudest component by far are my HDDs. Unfortunately SSDs are still way too expensive to be used as mass storage, my current 23TB of storage(was 27, but 1 4TB HDD failed.) would cost ~$2300 at the current $100/TB for the cheapest SSDs which is a lot more than the $420 for 24TB of the cheapest 8TB HDD, and that is ignoring the need for more Sata ports which would increase the cost if it required to get expansion cards.

    A good way to archive your really important stuff is 50-100GB bluerays. They're really small and there's some that claim to last 1,000 years, but I doubt anyone will ever be able to confirm that lol. I have a couple encrypted copies, have some in my car and some at my parent's house.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Quadrum in Which GPU for which CPU.     
    Probably the best would be the 8700k+2080ti on the 100Hz and the 3800x+2080 on the other, if there was a 4k TV involved then it would be likely better to put the 3800x+2080Ti on the 4k display.
    The difference probably won't be big anyway, but the Intel might get some extra frames for the 100hz display, and the 2080ti should probably be on the more demanding display.
  13. Agree
    KaitouX got a reaction from Vishera in Recommend cpu air cooler cheep   
    $100 to cool the 3600 is kinda dumb, either go with something cheap that is better than the stock(CM Hyper 212 or similar) or something mid tier(~$50) like Scythe Fuma 2 or similar if silence is important.

    KaitouX reacted to LaughingHyena in Is 98% load normal on a RTX 2080?   
    It really depends on the game. For a GPU-heavy game like Apex, x264 might be best, but it really depends on your build. With a 9900K, it probably wouldn't hurt to try. That said, there are no 'Best Settings'. You can try to find a guide online, but your PC might need different settings. It took me trial and error to find good settings for my stream.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Dabombinable in I don't use AMD. CHANGE MY MIND   
    3700X is faster than the 9700k on everything that doesn't need the better clock/latency of the 9700K.
    Also Intel single core isn't faster, it does have higher clocks, but lower IPC, in the end it's pretty much the same.

    If gaming and CPU intensive tasks aren't a focus, might as well get the 1600AF. The price difference can be used to get something more meaningful for your use case like memory or a SSD.

    KaitouX got a reaction from realpetertdm in Gamefreak Announces Pokemon Expansion Pack   
    People hated that a lot too, also with the older system at least you could save money by selling the older version, or by not buying the first version at all. But in the end if the game weren't as bad as they're people wouldn't complain as much(like in games like BOTW, SSBU and similars), and a DLC won't be solving problems with story, graphics and other problems with the main game, which could be fixed in a remix, just like Ultra S/M fixed issues with the originals.
     
    I think this way of adding more content is great, but after such rushed game you would expect the DLC to be way cheaper than this, and you would also expect the game to get updates to the main game fixing the issues, but that's way out of the capacity of Gamefreak(obviously not in a financial meaning).

    KaitouX got a reaction from Rakanoth in NVIDIA GeForce 3070/3080/3080 Ti (Ampere): RTX Has No Perf Hit & x80 Ti Card 50% Faster in 4K! (Update 6 ~ Specs / Overview / Details)   
    The x80 Ti should still be at the 250W range, but the others might be lower, in a similar way to Maxwell/Pascal. The 980 Ti TDP is 250W against the 165W of the 980 for example.
     
     
    I hope we get a GTX970 like card without the memory bullshit, a $350~$400 GPU with the previous x80 Ti performance while using almost half the power to bring the prices back to reality, but it probably won't be happening.

    KaitouX reacted to Princess Luna in R5 3600 enough for RTX 2080 Ti?   
    Maybe, then again the point remains... builds should be balanced and the 1200+ USD GPU with a sub 200$ CPU is a wasted potential... would still insist on the 2080S or 2070S for a 3600 as maximum it makes sense pairing wise.
  23. Agree
    KaitouX got a reaction from Princess Luna in R5 3600 enough for RTX 2080 Ti?   
    I agree with that, but for 4K gaming for example that would be good enough, without knowing what is going to be played and at which resolution, recommending other CPUs might make a huge difference at lower resolutions or none at all at higher ones, so it becomes just guessing.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Gomp in Do I need more fans? (The goal is a to get a more silent PC.)   
    Unless you're having temperature problems I don't see reason to add more fans.
    If you want a quieter PC, change the GPU or the GPU cooler, that blower cooler is probably the loudest part of the system. If after changing the blower it still is too loud, then you would need to see which fans are loud and replace or limit their RPM.
    I doubt the case fans would be that loud compared to a blower Titan X, Noctua fans wouldn't do any magic to lower the noise of the GPU.
  25. Agree
    KaitouX reacted to James Evens in Higher wattages doesn't always mean more quiet   
    No.
    The 1000x makes less noise then 550x at the same output. Just scale each graph properly and overlay it:
