    Oops, forgot to quote in order to push the notification.  Check out my post above yours.
     
    X399 will likely not have a mATX or ITX board due to the sheer size of the CPU socket.  It hyooge.  X370 is likely as good as it will get for AMD in that space for now.

    NV/AMD dont set the price, retailers do.  If they cant keep parts in stock the prices go up.  Its economics 101, supply and demand.  They can only produce so many chips at a time.

    The retailers are inflating it. It's supply and demand. Basic economics.

    It's not Nvidia increasing the price. It's the retailers. It's basic supply and demand.

    LOL, OK.  We are quite far from the topic at this point to be sure.

    Never trust a software sensor.  They can be in different places on different boards, and that will skew temperatures.  They can also be biased or calibrated differently.  You need to use probes or an IR thermometer.

    If that is true, you should have a 100% controlled experiment to find what it is.  Just going through this thread, this is placebo at best and driver/Direct X/Windows update related.
     
    Been building computers for over 20 years and gaming for 25, I've never seen this in the way people are presenting it.
     
    If you are on intel IGP, its possible that the drivers are recompiling shader code in a way that is causing a quality change.  Same with other GPUs really, they compile shaders at run time.  If something gets updated and the cache isnt cleared, you could very well get odd shader behavior.

    Did you ever think it could be a contrast or sharpness setting on your monitor?  Have you tried using an OS without automatic updates enabled?  Thats my issue with this bull, nobody even keeps track of variables.

    This conspiracy theory comes from people that believe that computers are magic and have zero understanding of how they work.
     
    The problem is in Drivers, Games, or your GPUs capabilities.
     
    Also, older games on new hardware run through a type of emulation or code wrapping (this is how DX supports old versions).  They are likely not going to work 100% accurately, and may have some graphical differences due to hardware and software differences over the ages.

    Reading through the thread some more, 90% trolls or uneducated tech plebs that think they should have I-Max quality graphics.
     
    MSAA does not work properly with anything recent, it only works on some items because deferred shading.
     
    People claiming their GTA icons also got more pixelated, HAHAHA, WUT?
     
    If someone wants to make this not a tinfoil hat topic, post screen caps of all the games you play that are impacted with caps of the settings screens as well.  Though there are ways to cheat that and troll even harder.

    I can tell you right now that Minecraft does NOT work with AA at all.  DSR crashes when you go fullscreen. FSAA was forced on in the driver for these, it does nothing.  It has done nothing for a long time now.
     
    Folder with caps from R5 1400 with GTX 670.
    Folder with caps from IvyBridge using iGPU in linux.
     
    I remember why I stopped playing MC now, its a game built solely from bugs and programming glitches.  The game resolution scales with Windows UI scaling... WUT?  That's one mystery solved.  Also, do NOT force AF unless you disable it in game, it breaks the graphics pretty bad if you have it enabled in both places.  16X AF creates odd shimmering in some places due to the design of the textures, 4X AF is plenty for MC and causes the least issues.
     
    Attached image is about what MC looks like using DSR.  Getting DSR working is very jankey but looks pretty good.
    Steps to get MC working with DSR...
     
    disable DPI scaling for the Minecraft shortcut
    make sure full screen is disabled in game
    set DSR factors in NV Control Panel
    set desktop resolution to your desired DSR factor (4k on 1080p gives 4x AA)
    start game
    maximize the game window
    NEVER hit F11, game will crash.

    In B350 boards MSI Gaming Pro Carbon is likely your best bet.  It has one of the most robust VRM's for a B350 board.  If you want to spend a bit more money, Taichi is likely the most robust board on the market as far as voltage control.
