    Really interested by server stuff, would consider myself a budget enthusiast considering I'm at least still on the X99 Chipset with an nvme boot drive and a gtx 1080, would like to be able to move from using intel rapid storage technology to a real raid card with more drives as well as getting a xeon and some ECC ram. Other than that I really like space and the UFC.
  • Biography
    Got into computers around late 2015-early 2016. Had been wanting to build a pc as some of my friends had and it looked cool. I had been working in computer sales at Best Buy and eventually just got all the parts I needed. Since then I have found a new love for computers and I am currently working towards a degree in electrical engineering, I am also minoring in nuclear engineering and math.

  1. I watched the launch happen from Melbourne and the report afterwards. Issue was with the automation process, had a crew been on board they very likely could have fixed the issue and they would have had a high chance at docking with the ISS. I would say that no money was wasted because this was a test mission anyway. The whole point was to test everything out, a lot of the stuff they wanted to test worked perfectly and they got a lot of data on their systems. What I'm wondering now is what kind of timer or "clock" they are using in the space craft. I would assume that a gps has too much delay for how precise of timing they need and that a nuclear clock is required. Assuming they do in fact use a nuclear clock I wonder what was wrong with it. If it was built correctly it should be incredibly accurate, perhaps their was an issue with the interpretation of the data the clock was giving off
  2. Well yeah that is what should be expected, each year there is new hardware that is similar to older hardware in performance, but in a lower price range and that is a good thing. We also see new features (and gimmicks) with each generation, new technology emerging as well. We got mid range cards with GDDR6 now, PCIe 4.0 (with cards and ssd's to go with it,) Ram is as fast as ever (and people seem to finally care about timings, and speed makes a tangible difference,) we have AMD surpassing Intel for the first time in what feels like forever. I think this year has been very interesting for tech, looking back at late 2017-2018 which was a really bad time for PC building considering price surges in gpu's and ram and AMD's first gen Ryzen not being everything we hoped for, Intel's lack of innovation, etc, it was a mini dark age for pc building. Right PC building is as big as ever and prices and competition are great. I do find Nvidia's absurd amount of GPU sku's annoying as it makes it hard or a consumer, especially with how close some of them are in price. But overall I think this was a great year Tech
  3. At this point I have built 5 different computers for myself, and 2 for other people, with some more to come soon
  4. I don't think Intel is going to do any more +++ but they can adjust things like pricing, core count, cache, PCIe lanes, etc. plus it would not surprise me if they end up releasing some desktop 10nm despite talk of them skipping straight to 7nm. I'm hoping we see some interesting moves by each company. The server space has me the most intrigued, especially with the chipset getting moved to the cpu on Epyc chips, that makes a lot of sense considering the north bridge move all those years ago
  5. AMD looks to be keeping the pressure on Intel with many reports saying we could see 5nm chips based on their Zen 4 Architecture by 2021. This going in hand with their constant increase in core count will likely continue their current domination in the workstation and server space. All of this is just more bad news for Intel who is expected to have 7nm by 2022 maybe? Regardless of which side you are rooting for this is good news as a consumer as Intel still has a lot of cards they can play to still compete, the future should be very interesting. https://www.techradar.com/news/amds-5nm-zen-4-cpus-could-arrive-in-2021-really-turning-the-heat-up-on-intel
  6. No, usually a bottleneck will come from the cpu because it can't process data as fast as your gpu pinning the cpu at really high usage with much lower usage on the gpu. This does not really apply the other way. If you gpu is running at its full capability and there is spare cpu leftover then you are not really missing out on performance. This being said you still want to have a balance, don't want to get a crazy powerful cpu and pair it with a weak gpu. Put yeah the 3600 with the 1080 should be lit
  7. Based on your previous post I would guess its either your motherboard or your psu. If you know someone who could let you try your system with their psu that would eliminate that as a possibility, otherwise it may be worth taking it all out of the case and testing it to make sure the case isn't somehow shorting anything. I would also try every port on your gpu in the very unlikely case that the port is bad
  8. First gen Ryzen boards are not officially compatible with 3rd gen chips. Some have beta bios versions available, but as far as AMD is concerned it is straight up not supported. I would look for a deal on a B450 or X470 board with the Black Friday deals going on right now
  9. Try clearing your cmos and maybe updating your motherboard bios and see if that helps at all
  10. If you think its a ram issue try running something like memtest86, if there are any errors then its definitely the ram. Otherwise it might be a motherboard issue but probably not. MSI usually has above average memory compatibility but you may want to see if the ram is on the validated list for the motherboard
  11. Without getting new hardware your best bet is going to be overclocking. Otherwise you could try and get a used gpu, you can get gtx 970 or 980 for decent prices used, that would be your best bet without breaking the bank
  12. Yeah I don't see any mention of it, you may want to either contact the seller or AMD. I purchased a 2700X from Newegg and it had the free game stuff in my cart so I assume they have emailed me the codes
  13. This is one of those better safe than sorry situations if you ask me. Out of curiosity what did you put in it, also did it work at all?
  14. Honestly might just want to save your money for next gen gpu, 1070 is still a decent card
