  1. So Ryzen has cores speed at about Broadwell - E which was right before Skylake. So its fast, but in your situation I am almost certain its optimization. Also Ram affects Ryzen way more than Intel in terms of speed. Because of the way the infinity architecture works on Ryzen.
  2. What to do with extra 1070

    Sell it for a quick dime, unless you have a system to put it in to mine.
  3. Interesting. So thats only if you apply for affiliate, but I am betting you an negotiate once at a certain level.
  4. I assume so, but I am not sure.
  5. Too high voltage on i5 6600k

    Nope not at all. 1.35 is perfectly safe, and its just upping the voltage when under load as it should. Under idle I bet you sit around 1.25 ish.
  6. 5 GHz 8600k

    So I built a 8600k and i7 8700k system for two people (Just as a favor) and overclocked it for them. The cpu's are literally the same thing, i7 just has more threads enabled. However they overclock almost identically. I was able to get a stable 5.0 on the i7, but the temps under full load where flirting in the high 80's so I had to back it down to 4.9. Those CPU's run dang hot.
  7. Yep beat me to it! So most motherboards, even with Ryzen have a connector for onboard graphics, even though it wasn't supported at Ryzen launch because they had planned ahead for creating APU's. That is why with Ryzen currently you have to have a dedicated graphics cards as there is no integrated graphics.
  8. Need your advice PLEASE. 1440p 60hz vs 1080p 144hz ? Undecided

    More frames makes a huge difference to gameplay, and regardless of what I am playing I would take that over a higher res most days. That being said, if you really don't care about higher then 60fps go with the 1440p.
  9. Not sure if you need a bios update since its 1st gen chips, not the 12 nm yet, but I assume because the apu has to use the onboard vga at the back of the motherboard a bios update will need to happen. They are not "Technically" Ryzen 2nd gen. The 12nm refresh is supposed to come out later this year, and the 7nm Ryzen 2 is supposed to happen next year.
  10. So i am going to start streaming sometime soon and I have a quick question. I know that the twitch affiliate program says you can't stream to twitch and youtube at the same time or you lose your affiliate account. But I know for the Wan show, and Paul' and Kyles weekly collaboration do stream to youtube and twitch at the same time. Does anyone know how they do this without breaking that clause? Or if they are exempted due to their status and they just negotiated it out?
  11. GPU in stock! (No idea how long)

    And....its gone! Seriously WTF
  12. GPU in stock! (No idea how long)

    Hey cause I watch this sh*t daily. Right now the Evga 1060 6gb FTW Black is in stock for MSRP on EVGA's website. If you were wanting the 1060 6gb now is the chance to not get reemed on price, for however long! https://www.evga.com/products/productlist.aspx?type=0
  13. First time build

    I would either get the 1600 or 1400, the 1500x is not worth it.
