  1. I should've mentioned that I was using a GTX 950. Though, if you are using x264 to stream (like OP was planning on doing), GPU doesn't matter too much. I can't recall what settings I was using since this post is from last year, but I remember testing 720p60 at medium preset and 1080p60 around the veryfast to fast preset. I used an RTMP server to stream to the computer w/ the 6700k and outputting that stream to Twitch and it would drop frames (nginx + mpv w/ NVENC decoding used less than 5% CPU usage combined, mpv was used instead of the OBS VLC source because of higher CPU usage). I tested on both Linux and Windows.
  2. A Minecraft server is heavily single-threaded; I believe only the networking threads are multi-threaded. Though, if you genuinely think it's an issue with Linux, try it on Windows. I have a G3258 (2 cores, no HT) OC'd to 4.2GHz on my Arch Linux server and I'm able to run a vanilla server and a SkyFactory 4 server at the same time, each one with about 1-3 players each.
  3. Since the RX 580 beats the GTX 970 by a bit, I'm gonna take wild guess and say the GTX 970 is better than the RX 570 by a small margin.
  4. https://twitter.com/LinusTech/status/1151221389585633281 Welp, this is gonna be good ???
  5. Definitely the LG 22MP68VQ. It has a higher refresh rate (75 Hz) and an IPS panel (better color).
  6. Sounds like it is dead if it's not being detected. Try switching SATA ports on the motherboard or plugging the SSD into a different PC (if available).
  7. It looks like you're recording at 300FPS instead of 60FPS. Try lowering that under Video Capture Settings. If that doesn't work, I'd doubt Fraps will work that well on your PC. You could try recording with OBS and use NVENC. OBS gives you quite a bit more options compared to Fraps.
  8. Assuming you installed both in UEFI mode, there should be an option in the BIOS under the Boot section called "UEFI Hard Drive BBS Priorities" or something like that. That'll allow you to change it so Windows will boot by default and you'll just have to go into the Boot Menu (F11 on MSI motherboards) to boot into Ubuntu. Alternatively, you could change the GRUB config, but I'm not too familiar with that.
  9. As you said, it most likely died. You can try changing the display cable or reflashing the BIOS on your GPU, but it seems unlikely for that to fix it if it died out of the blue.
  10. As I mentioned before, the card is stable with 1366 MHz. I've played several games on it and it hasn't had any abnormalities. I just want to permanently restore it back to stock speeds.
  11. Forgot to mention that in the second BIOS mode (switch pointing towards the video outputs), it just shows a purple screen on boot.
  12. I recently bought an XFX RX 580 GTS XXX Edition from eBay. When I installed it, I realized that the screen would flicker every few seconds. I opened AMD WattMan to find out that the card came with a core clock of 1405 MHz, which is above what's listed on XFX's spec sheet (1366 MHz stock, 1386 MHz OC+). I turned the clock down to 1366 MHz, and everything was stable. However, problem is when reinstalling Windows or using Linux, which is when the underclock is inactive. Is there any way I can return the card back to stock speeds without the usage of WattMan?
  13. It's marginally better. With a good enough overclock on the 8700k, it can even outperform the 9700k. I don't see any reason to upgrade.
