  1. Not overkill enough to be called compensator, only a single 27" You need multiple 49" ultrawides 32gb ram is also not over kill enough, you should be looking at using 32gb Dimms, with X570, that would be 128gb ram.
  2. I legit thought about doing this the other day to my MP600
  3. Thanks so much, that was actually the thread i had read previously and found out about the bifurcation issues. With the knowledge that you have, would I be able to run multiple PCIE Gen 4 1x adapters? IE run 1 nvme drive per PCIE Gen 4 1x? Without impacting the GPU performance? Sorry for all the questions, I still have a some lapses in understanding of the split. I understand that if i'm running multiple drives off the 4 lanes from the CPU to the chipset, that i would experience a slower performance than if the NVME drive is communicating with the CPU directly. But in this case, i'm only looking to achieve better performance than a typical sata drive because Sata SSDs are only a little cheaper than NVMEs.
  4. With the available PCIE GEN 4 1x slots, GEN 4 PCIE 1X slots are capable of theoretically 2gb/s which is still much faster than Sata 3 at 550ish mb/s Would i be better off running PCIE gen 4 1x to M.2 adapters?
  5. Hi guys, I had a question about my setup, and potentially adding more drives. I'm running a 3900x on an Asus X570 TUF mobo. For PCIE devices, i currently have: -5700 XT, -1 Corsair MP600 PCIE gen 4 NVME -1 Adata SX8200 Pro PCIE gen 3 NVME I'm looking to ditch platter based hard drives in general, so i wanted to add more M.2 drives. I came across the Asus Hyper M.2 which supposedly has four more M.2 slots, but i was reading that it would only allow me to plug in 2 more drives as my mobo does not support PCIE bifurcation. The mobo has 1 more PCIE x16 slot which is linked to the chipset and several PCIE gen 4 1x slots. What would be the best way to add lets say 4 more M.2 NVMEs without impacting speed too much? Thanks for any advice in advance.
  6. I don't really want to do that, because i'm 99% sure i won sillicon lottery on this one.
  7. Im running the Deepcool 360mm aio, no problems so far. Performance is as expected of an AIO
  8. yeah, im not really looking to water cool for heavy overclocking, more so for a mild overclock and aesthetics and also keeping the damn thing quiet. I have a +25% powerlimit on it, oc'ed to 2143mhz on gpu clock, memory to 1900 mhz. The GPU under full load in games is hitting 83 degree, and the VRM is hitting 92, and the gddr6 vram temp is hitting 98. A little too hot for my liking and its also putting out a lot of ambient heat up towards my Corsair MP600 nvme, which is situated right above the graphics card. I could actually push this GPU harder if i could keep the temps in check, i ran +50% power limit to see how far i can push it, and it could do 2198mhz on the core, but once the runs get longer, the vrms hit 99 degrees and the vram hits 101, the gpu hits 97 degrees. I know AMD says 110 is safe, but really its spitting out way too much heat into the case. To make things worse, its also dumping some of that heat into where my x570 board's chipset fan is. Currently i've ramped up the exhaust fan at the back and ramped up the 3 exhaust fans in the front to increase airflow, its helped a bit, lowering all the temps by a few degrees, but it's not ideal. Water cooling the GPU would really help to remove the ambient heat issue i have as well as allow me to venture into powerplaytable mods. I've seen some overclocks have successfully pushed the Liquid Devil 5700 xt to 2.4ghz with power play table mods and it's right up there with RTX2080 performance and within reach of 2080ti, at the expense of well tremendously higher power consumption.
  9. I read over the gamers nexus article, they said there is nothing special with the PCB, but the way it's phrased, i don't think that means that the layout is identical to the reference card, as i checked the reference card pcb and there is a huge blanked space for where the blower fan goes. Looking at the gigabyte card in my case, i see componentry there. EDIT: just found the buildzoid tear down: Looks definitely different compared to reference. Gigabyte on left, reference on right
  10. Hi guys, So i bought a special variant of a 5700XT and I wasn't able to find any water cooling company that made a waterblock for it. I've checked ek, corsair, alphacool etc. Anyone know any company or person that would make a custom full coverage block? I can provide the measurements if necessary. Thanks in advance!
  11. Here's my 3900x oc'ed to 4.3ghz all core, i did get stable at 4325mhz but the voltages were right at 1.325v, not much performance gain so i backed it off to 1.3175v
