  1. Sweet !!! I just ran a benchmark for GPU Superposition from Unigine See results with gpu stock And result with gpu with +460 on mem and +115 on the core Which is like 8-9% gain over gpuboost 3.0 pretty sweet
  2. I'm good for now there is no need to upgrade for me the 6700k runs my 1070 perfectly and I don't need a more powerful cpu for anything else really But in a couple years I might consider ryzen
  3. im not upgrading soon but was curious about ryzen thanks
  4. I've move from 1080p 60z to 1440p 144hz with my gtx 1070 and gotta say its the best feeling ever Been using it for a year now... its smooth, most games gotta put you know shadow to medium couple things like that and you're good, if you want full 144 fps in competitive fps or else you know you just go to whatever low settings you need to obtain it still many games run full ultra too I tend to see it that way : Monitor last ~10 years CPU ~5-7 years GPU 3-5 years
  5. So what is your experience of Ryzen so far what about the + and the - ??? I need more personal opinions Any bothering situations like drivers or games crash or etc
  6. It looks nice why the i version tho ? I think the only difference between RMi and RMx is the link fan control ? I bought the RMx but I still have 10 days to return it with no fees so let me know maybe I'll reconsider lol it was like 40$ more for the RMi 850 Yeah it's a sweet OC I can go up to 115-120 on the core mhz tho, I was getting artifacts/driver stop working crash @ 130 mhz on the core and for the memory Max I could get with no crtash was around 475-480 I went for a decent long term OC @ 100/450
  7. Wish I had that good plans.. In canada here I get 9GB internet + infinite voice/text for 80$ CAD which is like 50 euro ??
  8. Most likely they will both run @ 14-14-14-34 3200mhz (the 3866 will slowdown to match the 3200 one, in other words)
  9. Not true again I did uninstall AVG not too long ago with zero problem. Free anti virus are the exact same as paid anti virus except database is updated every 2-3 days instead of every 3-4 hours for paid anti virus. thats all. ah yeah free anbti virus have ads which is annoying.. To me, any antivirus is annoying.
  10. Anti virus are not magic, all they do is maintain a database of virus names/files, and when you download/execute a file, it scans that file through their database to see if it recognize it as a virus. If yes, it will block it. Thats all. PAid anti virus are a bit better b ecause their data base are updated daily and faster
  11. That is possible. I am not a pro in anti virus as I never used one myself... I download shit tons of torrents and cracked games and never had a problem. If I am unsure of a cracked game I would just install it on a VM to test first. I have been in the game since 1990 so maybe I am not a good example as I would say I am a Super User or actually a computer technician by profession lol That being said, OP --> If you consider yourself more than average user, just a windows defender and awareness and being careful should be enough for you Not true. Free anti virus are the same as the paid anti virus except their database are not updated as fast as the paid anti virus. Which is the only reason why someone would pay for an anti virus (except if it's for an organization then paid anti virus ahve lot more manageable options for scheduled scans and monitoring etc ) Also Norton beuuurk horrible , kaspersky is ... okay... Avast is horrible also you can't get virus by just browsing a site (it's possible but will most likely never ever face that situation even if you browse random sites for the rest of your life ) It's all about not executing that zlx.exe file that you been asked to download or that britneyspearsnaked.exe file
  12. Best anti virus is don't use internet at all. Second best anti virus is a good and careful user third best anti virus are paid antivirus softwares (the only main advantage paid antivirus over free antivirus are : no ads, database updated quickly as soon as new virus are discovered fourth best anti virus are free anti virus softwares (they get their database updated less quickly than paid antivirus, and have ads, ) fifth best anti virus is windows defender
  13. If the OS installed on the SSD was installed from a different computer, with different chipset, it won't work. You have to reinstall windows on it from scratch. Load a W10 USB key installer and see if it's detected if yes just reinstall windows brand new on it.
  14. I get 71 max temps while 100% on load with fans at 50-60% speed Oh and it's overclocked +100mhz on the core and +450mhz on the memory with MSI afterburner I Remember when I bought this card I checked a chart of all gtx 1070 different manufacturer and EVGA was in the hotest cards They are still very reliable tho I do like EVGA in general
  15. Mine is sweet cuz you have ton of room (see my signature) you can youtube it for a preview
  16. No leave it like that its fine you could try a clean windows format as well try first what i suggested
  17. 77c max temp shud not be a problem try uninstalling drivers with DDU and clean install most recent drivers from official website Run it stock with zero OC, not even the cpu and ram , like ram cpu gpu all stock see if it happens just to make sure it's OC'd related..
  18. I youtubed gtx 1070 dissemble and got a video that....make you realise that a kid can do it lol that so yeah its even easier than the cpu thermal paste to be honest cheers
  19. I Did change the thermal paste for new MX4. The old one was pretty dry. I went from : Idle 55 ---> ~40 On load 85 --> 60-65 Amazing ! I am buying/building computers for 15 years now and I never changed GPU tthermal paste, I guess because I was always upgrading GPU within 3-4 years Now with the new crappy overpriced RTX serie I kept my 1070 so I guess I learned the lesson ! Cheers guys !
  20. Yeah I guess I needed confirmation Would make sense it's the thermal paste.... Gonna try that and report back with new temps cheers
  21. Hi, I own this Asus gtx 1070 since 2016. It always been running smooth and temps were never higher than 73c For couple weeks now I noticed my fans were louder than usual. I verified and when I play a game, the temp goes up to 85 almost instantly, fans goes up to 80% ,very loud, and temps kind of stabilize around 81-82c. MAx temps was 90, my computer was shut down for the night, open it in the morning so all components were you know, cold, loaded a game, and within 5 min I got those temps, max temps of gpu of 90c and average is 82c Again thats for like 10 min gameplay in a game where it would use my gpu to 100% Question is : You guys think it's possible the thermal paste needs to be changed on the GPU ? I'm used to change that for CPUs but never done it for a gpu. Any advice ? Anything to test/consider before changing thermal paste of the gpu ? Also can I use same paste as my CPU for the GPU ? Artic MX4 ? The only change if hardware is the monitor, since 1 year I use a 1440p 144hz so my gpu is almost always used to the maximum of it's power for most games (1070 struggle a bit to get 144 fps in most games you know)
  22. Update guys : PUBG still make my PC reboot. If I play for more than 1-2 hour it will reboot for sure, sometimes would reboot within 5 min or 15 its kinda random Played other games that had my cpu/gpu more utilized as per hwmonitor, had same temps or even like 1-2C higher temps in other games, but never had a single issue, no reboots at all Temps are not higher than 71 for the gpu and 75 for the cpu and those are peaks anything else in hwmonitor is fine as well I did reconnect all PC parts except CPU and CPU heatsink The problem is so strange... I am going to format quickly now to see if that could be the issue idk at this point what it could be the PSU seems perfectly fine in any other situation that stress any parts wayy more than pubg... will report after format i guess i know not much you guys can help but anyway if u have any ideas... malwarebytes reports 0 threads found tho - What about going to computer parts buying new 750W PSU and return within 30 days if I still have the restart issue in PUBG ? good idea or useless ? This 650W EVGA that I use is ~1 year old... I just don't know what else to test/troubleshoot
