    RocketJump reacted to LogicalDrm in Launching Discord Temporarily Cuts Out Sound   
    Discord is accessing audio device when it loads. You can select which device you use with it. If you select same as what is set default, it should be all good.
     
    My audio cuts when I connect USB mic as it's counted both mic and headphones by Windows.

    have you disabled any audio outputs that you're not using? I only use one speaker at a time so all of my audio devices are disabled in windows audio control panel.

    RocketJump got a reaction from Ben17 in What is your story with the PCs and upgrading?   
    My upgrade history looks something like this:
    Intel 386 Pentium 3 450 w/ a GeForce 2 MX Pentium 4 2.4GHz w/ can't remember Pentium D 805 w/ GeForce 8600 GTS Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop with i5 480M and GeForce GT 425M i5 4330 with Radeon 260x? i5 4670k w/ GeForce GTX 760. Upgraded to an RX 480 and then a GTX 1080. i7 8700k w/ GTX 1080 that I kept from previous rig I'm probably missing a GPU upgrade or two in there. I'm still more than happy with my 8700k and GTX 1080 so I don't see myself upgrading for a long, long time.

    RocketJump reacted to dfsdfgfkjsefoiqzemnd in Case fan setup   
    Oh, absolutely.  A top exhaust fan in front of the CPU cooler will indeed remove cold air that would otherwise have been able to help cool the CPU.
    The one above the cooler will not help much either, it only disrupts the clean " front intake -> cooler -> rear exhaust " pathway that you'd otherwise have. 
     
    People keep telling me I'm crazy though, so I'm happy that someone else notices the exact same thing I did.

    RocketJump reacted to GoldenLag in What do you guys think of this upgrade?   
    Wait for launch of Zen 2. If you cant wait, go last gen and grab an 8700k instead. But waiting for Zen 2 is the best choice right now. Launch is at 7th/7th launching their 7nm CPUs, (yes clever)
     
     
    Also grab 3000mhz memmory, its where the sweetspot is at.

    Then it sounds like a voltage issue.  I'm not an Intel overclocker, but I can google.

    It could be your CPU overclock then.  I would assume it's that above bad RAM at this point.

    RocketJump reacted to Stefan Payne in 8700k to 2700X?   
    Might be announced Tuesday, so I'd wait until wednesday and decide then.
     
    I don't know how long Zen2 takes to be available, my guess would be rather short than long. Wich means something like March or April for availability. That's only a guess take it with a sack of salt.

    Wait for Zen 2. AMD will announce the new chips in less than two weeks, however it may be months before they get on the market.
     
    But I think it's worth the wait because a 16 core 4.7GHz CPU for $500 sounds sweet.

    RocketJump got a reaction from xg32 in Help With 8700k OC   
    I just read into it and apparently they prevent voltages from exceeding your set vcore when using an offset. Thanks for your help!

    RocketJump reacted to xg32 in Help With 8700k OC   
    the offset on my boards at least affects the idle voltage and everything in between, so if the idle voltage is too low or you go from a high usage area (4.7 stable at 1.27-1.3v) then go to a low usage area (i'm guessing here, 3.6 0.95v) then it might not be stable, and since you are using a -0.11 offset i'd say that's likely. So you need to find a less aggressive offset that works all voltages/speeds (you'll have to use a llc that pumps out less voltage at full load)

    RocketJump reacted to xg32 in Help With 8700k OC   
    -0.115 is a big drop  and can cause instability while the cpu fluctuates in load.
     
    I personally can't use anything more than -0.025 (note the extra 0) on my z390, i think on my z370 extreme4 the max was -0.07, so ya, -0.115 is alot, if you don't like using the extra voltage, use a lower voltage llc, or just clock the cpu higher.

    Do any of your displays have built in speakers?
     
    Best thing to do would be test to see if running audio through HDMI to your display results in the same issue.

    RocketJump got a reaction from Ebony Falcon in Accidentally Overvolted 8700k   
    So I was messing around with my OC and accidentally set my offset to 0.1 and booted into Windows. I opened up CPU-Z as soon as the desktop came up and saw that my 8700k was getting 1.568v and immediately shut down and switched it back in the BIOS. This was a few hours ago and everything seems to be fine since but being as paranoid as I am, I'm just curious if this might have caused any sort of damage? I'm thinking it should be fine, I never ran anything intensive during this time and the it was only running with this voltage for max 2 minutes but I wanted to make sure.
