  1. That's true, but still doesn't mean it's necessarily unsafe to use. That's what I'm trying to determine
  2. Oh that makes sense. Been a while since I was using me old 8350
  3. Well that doesn't seem to bad. Calling in the Big Cheeses in the PSU LTT world. Nice :). Spos the question would be, can degradation in components over time cause a potential risk to computer hardware? My intuition would tell me that safety features built into the PSU would stop it working before harm came to the components
  4. Ok not as high end as I expected the Antec Truepower Quattro 1000w. I guess the strong recommendation would be to get a new one?
  5. @Juular Thanks for the suggestion. I will talk to him about going for a smaller build. I have switched out the RAM on the build for the Patriot Viper 4 @SavageNeo Also thanks for the suggestion again I will talk to him about going Micro ATX and changing the case I will try and persuade him to get a new PSU, I just sent him a message asking what model of PSU he has.
  6. I can't remember the exact model but it was high end at the time he went all out on the PC in general. Even had a custom loop. The psu was overkill 1000w rated. I will try and get this information from him as to the model although knowing him (Oh,and I do) he will be stubborn on the issue I will swap out the RAM. Any RAM in particular or just not the LPX? At the same price the XFX DD Ultra is available. Would you say this is a better buy? What's your concerns with the MSI card? https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/tt7p99/xfx-radeon-rx-5700-8-gb-dd-ultra-video-card-rx-57xl8lbd6.
  7. This must be designed or detected somewhat differently to AMDs FX line as Windows still shows each core not as threads in that line of processors.
  8. Hi Guys! My brother is finally looking to upgrade his relic of an i7 920, and his GTX 760. Last night me and him had a look at PCPartPicker and this is what we came to. He initially said he didn't want to go above £600 but was fine with this £613 build. He doesn't need Storage or a PSU(Although I did advise him he might want to upgrade his 10 year PSU). Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.

  9. Glad to hear it. I get about the same at 1440p with a 1080 so that sounds about right. And the low framerates occasionally is something I think you will probably have to deal with or you could try tinkering with the graphics setting
  10. No your CPU is not the bottleneck. I also found that particularly on the ground war maps it could sometimes go down to as low as 70 fps
  11. I thought I was having the same issue in modern warfare with my GTX 1080 but as it turns out it was just windows miss reporting. I would recommend downloading EVGA Precision x1 or equivalent software and checking. If you think about it the 2060 Super spitting out 117 frames at 12% usage would be remarkable
  12. It works differently to how competitors do it. Corsair has a QI wireless charging mouse and placing the mouse in a specific spot in the corner of compatible mouse pads charges it. Whereas Logitech slowly charges the whole time you are using it. The idea being that you never have to worry about charging your mouse, although it takes no effort to put your mouse in a specific spot or plug it in to charge I think some people like the idea they never have to even think about it. You are right though in that it is very expensive
  13. The New Call of Duty is a CPU hog, like less than 30% gpu usage 90% CPU usage @ 1440p with 7700k and GTX 1080. This is in Ground war

      @OlympicAssEaterI'll update later when I'm home, but from what task manager was showing it never dipped from it's boost clock

      I don't think it's a thermal issue....just really bad game optimization.

    4. TVwazhere


      CPU is being used 90-100%, but so is the GPU, GPU power is also around 80% so it's definitely being used


  14. Logitech recently re-released the MX 518 with their latest sensor. As far as finding a mouse that has a similar shape and will feel familiar that's your best bet
  15. Apparently even Blizzard said it wasn't even "Blizzard Soon". I doubt they would've even announced it at this Blizzcon if it wasn't for the controversy around the mobile diablo game and them wanting to appease their more hardcore crowd. Diablo 3 was announced 4 years before release for some context
