    Asus rog Maximus hero questions

    PCI Express expansion cards can fit there, your graphics card is one of them. Technically an M.2 riser card could go there, and an M.2 drive could be put in the riser card, but you won't be able to take advantage of PCIe speeds with storage unless you're moving massive files. For the average user, a SATA drive is plenty.

    What's the difference between 1070ti and a 2070?

    2070 uses GDDR6 instead of GDDR5, and has RT cores and Tensor cores.

    Please retest Titan V

    yeah I'll get on that real quick

    Should I upgrade my i5 4670k ?

    Response time is not determined by any PC specs, it's a monitor feature only. I believe you mean refresh rate. Sounds like you used the infamous Bottleneck Calculator, which is useless. Your bottleneck is likely far more severe, judging by the fact that you said your GPU is barely used. Definitely do this first, your temps are good so improve CPU performance as much as you can before discerning the need to replace it. 4.3GHz is not so high.

    ITX silent encoding/home server box

    It does, and the stock Ryzen cooler would still fit if you wanted to test the noise level before buying an AIO

    ITX silent encoding/home server box

    Silverstone Sugo SG13B, 120mm aio, and a passively cooled GT 1030, minimal noise.

    UserBenchmark -> Read this

    Having very little free space on an SSD greatly reduces drive performance, it's not nefarious.
  9. Do you mean an i9 7900X? That CPU alone is like $1000.
  10. TL;DR what are some hardware rediscoveries you've had, after long searches? My brother was considering selling his PC so I was trying to find all the relevant details for a listing, when I reached a speed bump: What on earth is his case? I was pretty sure it was DIYPC, since I cheaped out for the sake of saving, and caught a good one on sale. However, I had no record on my Newegg account of the case model, I must have ordered it via his email instead. I searched everywhere, looking for "white PC with blue LEDs" in every way imaginable, on Newegg, Amazon, Google images, just couldn't find the thing. Then, just a couple minutes ago, I realized I am actually smart (but only subconsciously) and save every PC build in a spreadsheet because I keep a record of my work. I dug up the link and finally found this obscure wonder: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811353113R I bought it for like $40 which was about 20% off, definitely wouldn't have been worth more (and I probably could have got better). Similar stories are appreciated, a good hardware find is so satisfying.

From what I could find, 3DS max likes more cores and can be GPU accelerated so I included that here.

    There are really low wattage graphics cards like a GT 710

    Graphics card better all the sudden?

    Your PC didn't want to disappoint you after the 1080 gave you high standards. /S the ol' "unplug and plug it back in" strategy has helped throughout time, usually solving the unknown reasons why hardware doesn't behave. there could be any number of reasons as to why your 570 it wasn't doing what it was supposed to.

    Vega 56 keeps crashing

    Alright, that is a decent unit. Hope it does well for you. In the meantime, you can fiddle with the power settings to troubleshoot the driver stuff, first lower the power target for your graphics card by a lot, and reinstall the drivers. See what you can get away with.
