    HungryHamster reacted to Litargirio in 2 1080's or 1 titan XP   
    Actually no.
     
    In spite of the higher framerates, 1080 SLI gets a lot of stuttering in many games.

    HungryHamster reacted to Mick Naughty in The Titan XP vs 2x 1080 SLI   
    I never have an issue with sli, except waiting a week after a new game to have support. If you have the need to it, like max frames in 4K with ultra settings, or an ultra wide id go sli 1080. If 1440 or under I'd go Titan.

    HungryHamster reacted to Energycore in GPU Throttling/Downclocking Question   
    You won't really notice a difference at all between 1900 and 2000. Maybe if you hit 2150. Generally overclocking scales less than fully, but close.

    HungryHamster reacted to Techicolors in GPU Throttling/Downclocking Question   
    actually, in response to the bit about raising temp limit. there is some risk there since your top card is already hitting what i would call an uncomfortable temperature range. just do at your own discretion
     
    in theory you should see some gains with that sort of overclock. but it depends on the game

    It varies, but it might be 3-5 FPS at 1440p, with an intensive game at very high or ultra settings.

    HungryHamster reacted to Sauron in Something Blew Up!?!?!   
    From personal experience I can tell you it's probably a capacitor in one of the graphics cards, most likely a part of the power delivery circuit. When one of those capacitors blows, if it doesn't do too much damage to the surrounding circuitry the card may still be able to operate just fine, since power delivery is usually composed of a few parallel modules that have a high tolerance and can work independently from one another. You should still open up the cards to see the damage for yourself.

    HungryHamster got a reaction from Valhari in Best GTX 1080   
    Firstly, I would recommend 1 GTX 1080 instead of 2 GTX 1070s in SLI. Second, I would not recommend EVGA. It was recently discovered that some of their 10 series cards were literally exploding because of VRM overheating and poorly made capacitors. I think the ones being manufactured now have the necessary thermal pads installed, but I still wouldn't trust them after this major fiasco. Their customer service is great, but you're probably going to need it. Honestly, I'd probably go with the ASUS Strix GTX 1080.

    HungryHamster got a reaction from leadeater in MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries announced for 2018 release   
    I'm hyped already! I grew up playing the Mech Warrior games. Besides Star Siege Tribes, it was my favorite game to play until Half-Life came out.

    HungryHamster reacted to bgibbz in ML 120/140 LED Brightness Question   
    Yes, switching between pwm and voltage control is a uefi feature. It should be set to pwm as default however.

    HungryHamster reacted to samcool55 in WatchDogs2: 2nd GPU slot = Worse performance?   
    Is your monitor connected to the top card or the bottom card?
    If it's connected to the top one, and you are trying to game on the bottom one, there's an extra delay because the image needs to go from the bottom card to the top card and it's possible that's causing the issue.

    Yeah but... with a watercooled 6700k and 1080 SLI, can other pleb PC users even keep up with your pcmasterrace?

    HungryHamster reacted to Megah3rtz in To Predator X34 or not to Predator X34??   
    I vote for PG279Q. IPS display, 165HZ refresh rate, Gsync, and of course, 1440p.
     
    unless you want a 21:9 setup, go for either the 279/278. the difference between the two is only refresh rate and display base. 279Q is IPS 278Q is TN

    HungryHamster reacted to tohico in To Predator X34 or not to Predator X34??   
    All 3 of them are very good, but since you have the budget for it, I'd exclude the PG278Q for one simple reason - why would you get TN panel, if you don't have to.
     
    Also don't worry about the response time that much, the 1 ms isn't real anyway. The PG278Q's response time is 3 ms with overdrive set to normal, PG279Q is 5 ms at 144 Hz which is very good for IPS, and the X34 is 9 ms or 7.5 ms if ran overclocked at 100 Hz. I compare it with overdrive set to medium, because that's what you're going to most likely use - no OD is significantly slower and maxed out OD has noticeable overshoots. Also, since we're talking about milliseconds. If you want it for competitive play too, don't forget about input lags which are always more problematic on larger resolutions. The PG279Q is the winner here, 3.25 ms, then PG278Q 4 ms, and the X34 9.2 ms, which is still very good for such large resolution these days.
     
    Regarding the quality, all these are gaming monitors - so the quality won't be the best on any of them (in 90% cases, gaming oriented = bad quality) compared to their price tags. But that doesn't change the fact that they're amazing monitors, I just recommend you to do your research first to know what to expect and don't be afraid to send it back if you're not happy with the QC of the piece you get. But all the issues aren't usually associated with gaming / media use, rather than with the quality any human being would expect for those price tags. You know, like uniformity, color shifts, blb / glow, not derping out, etc...
     
    You probably already know this, but solid research materials: (not regarding QC though)

    HungryHamster reacted to aisle9 in EVGA SC or FTW   
    Personally, I wouldn't buy either one because of "Thermal Padgate". I don't doubt that the new VBIOS does a little to help mitigate the problem and the new thermal pads do more, but something bugs me to the point that the brand new replacement 1070 SC I received just hit eBay: if the engineers missed something as simple as thermal pads on the VRMs, what else did they miss?
     
    Don't get me wrong, I'll consider EVGA in future generations without question because they have been so good in the past, but I'm officially scared off from them for Pascal. As soon as the 1070 SC sells, I'll be grabbing either an MSI or Zotac card.

    HungryHamster reacted to Zyndo in I7-6700K too hot?   
    56C is a very good temperature for a 6700k. You only need to really be worried about it if you're running prolonged sessions in the 80's, or short sessions in the high 80's low 90's... Most people say even mid-high 70's are not too bad if it doesn't bother you.
     
    But 60 or lower is pretty awesome. to put that in comparison my 6700k at 4.0GHZ with a H100i V2 gets around 45-50 C peak temperatures in the heavier gaming loads.
