  1. My RTX EVGA 2080 ti XC runs in the 80s underload. My RTX EVGA 2080 ti FTW3 Ultra runs in the 70s under load. A water cooled 2080 ti should be in the 60s. Also my normal overclock to maintain 2050 mhz is 72c on the 3 fan FTW3 Ultra. I run at 2070 mhz at 74c. It will go to 2100 mhz but the fans are too loud to maintain it. With my XC (2 fan) card it is possible to maintain 2050 mhz but the fans are so loud that it is only good for benching. I may get a third 2080 ti. A hybrid this time and going by the EVGA forums I should get 64 to 65c under load. At 80c your loop is all show and no go because a 2080 ti downclocks well below that temperature.
  2. The opposite. The more you spend on a CPU the longer it will last. A PSU is one component that can be future proofed if you get one that you think will fill your needs not on your currant build but your next one.
  3. Control is fun to play with RTX but looks dull without it. Other than the visuals it is a one trick pony.
  4. The Rift S is the same.
  5. When 3440 X 1440 monitors came out they were 60hz. I bought one. A little later I bought a GTX 1080 and everything ran over 60fps. A few months later I upgraded to a GTX 1080 ti and it was a total waste at that refresh rate and resolution. The world has changed since then. My RTX 2080 ti can't run a 120hz 3440 X 1440 like my GTX 1080 ran my 60hz version. Going by the "Displays" part of the forum 2560 X 1440 144hz is the most desired monitor. None of the recent AAA games I have bought can run close to 144fps at that resolution even with my overclocked RTX 2080 ti and 5ghz CPU. When I ran 1080p 60hz monitors for years I only upgraded GPUs for more vram. I was already getting enough frames. My 2011 vintage GTX 570 could do 120fps in Skyrim when it came out. The vram was for modding. As far as I am concerned we have not caught up to the current most popular monitor like we did with 1080p 60hz. Until we do that there is no long term value of any of the GPUs on the market today.
  6. I hope you were using Prime95 v26.6. later versions will cook your CPU.
  7. I use the EVGA forums to get that sort of info. 62 to 65c under load was stated to be normal but some report high 50s. Radiator placement seem to be a critical issue with low and in front the best choice. I would have to buy a new case to achieve this.
  8. That is the card I would buy if I get another 2080 ti. My 3 fan FTW3 Ultra runs between 2040 and 2070mhz. When I put a load on it for about the 20 seconds it goes up to 2100mhz but as the temps go past 64c the card downclocks to 2070. As temps go past 74c the card runs at 2040mhz. The overclock I use now is +117 on the core, + 800 on the ram and 124% on the power limit. Any more creates too much heat and I downclock sooner. Something that would be fixed with a hybrid.
  9. The 1440p 144hz monitor I bought last year was the LG 32GK850G. It is a G-sync VA monitor. I paid $530. I bought it before there was Freesync for Nvidia cards and I wanted to match the size of my 32" 4k monitor. If I was buying one now I would get the LG 27GL850. The features I like are Certified by Nvidia and HDR 10. It costs around $490 but I think it could be gotten a lot closer to $400 on sale. All the 3440 X 1440 monitors I would buy are not moderately priced. My favorite now is the LG 34GK950G-W and the LG 34GK950F-B.
  10. Your old TN is an 8 bit but still good for fast gaming. If you stay with that size and resolution go IPS and HDR. I prefer playing games in widescreen format (21:9) and used a 3440 X 1440 monitor for several years. An IPS 100hz panel with HDR is what I would go for in that resolution. At 4k a RTX 2080s and 2080 ti are only really good for 60hz gaming. My 2080 ti can run higher frames but 100hz would be a stretch. I use the extra power for higher settings. I am currently playing on a 3840 X 1600 75hz monitor. I picked that resolution because it is the highest resolution possible to use RTX with a 2080 ti. Even if I can't get 60fps at 3840 X 1600 I can render at 3440 X 1400 and display at 3840 X 1600 and get 60. Also a big 38" curved ultra wide is breathtaking.
  11. If you need the performance,yes. I run a 4k monitor and a 3840 X 1600 monitor. With a 2080S I could not use the settings I like. My next monitor will be a 144hz 3840 X 1600. My FTW3 Ultra can't ever do 100fps average in AAA titles at that resolution so I need even more power.
  12. The answer is yes. I bought 2 replacing my GTX 1080 tis. I also agree with Princess Luna about the i9 9900k. The one I overclocked runs cool at 5ghz on all cores with a Noctua NH-D15 with one fan. What does run hot is budget 2080 tis overclocked. I can not recommend my EVGA RTX 2080 ti XC but I can recommend my EVGA RTX 2080 ti FTW3 Ultra. There is a $300 price difference.
  13. I think your 2080 ti is faulty. Look up 1350mhz bug.
  14. If the 8700k is like the i7 8086k there is no performance gain at 5.1, 5.2 or 5.3. It just looks kool. The only bench that is higher is Cinebench single core score(218 to 222) at 5.1. Right now I have one of my i7 8086ks at 5.1. It producers 1c more heat than 5ghz so I leave it on. This is the video that stopped me going to 5.2. (7:21)
  15. The best resolution for a 2080S using RTX is 2560 X 1440 or less.
  16. Hi If you are getting a RTX 2080 ti go with i9 9900k. If you are going with a RTX 2080 go with a i7 9700k. If you are planning to upgrade to a high end Nvidia next gen card go with a i9 9900k. If you are planning to do a lot of ray tracing games go with a 1440p 144hz, 3440 X 1440 100hz or a 3840 X 1600 75hz monitor. A RTX 2080 ti is not up to 4k raytracing. My 4k setup has a RTX 2080 ti but I play RTX games on my 3840 X 1600 monitor to be at or close to 60fps.
  17. Ok. All 3 games 3840 X 1600 at ultra except low anti aliasing and no DoF. ------------------------------------------------------------- 16gb Heaven 1440p 3188 126.5fps average 32gb Heaven 1440p 3194 126.9 average --------------------------------------------------------- 16gb Time Spy 14406 Graphic score 16197 G test 1 = 103.84fps G test 2 = 94.23fps CPU score 9000 CPU test 30.24fps 32gb Time Spy 14595 Graphic score 16333 G test 1 = 104.67 G test 2 = 95.07 CPU score 9105 CPU test 31fps ---------------------------------------------------------- 16gb Shadow of the Tomb Raider with RTX 64 fps 32gb Shadow of the Tomb Raider with RTX 64 fps -------------------------------------------------------- 16gb Metro Exodus with RTX 50fps 32gb Metro Exodus wit RTX 50fps -------------------------------------------------------- 16gb Assassin's Creed Odyssey Ultra 63fps 32gb Assassin's Creed Odyssey Ultra 66fps -------------------------------------------------------------- Window likes the upgrade more than the games.
  18. I will start tomorrow. I have been putting it off since I have to remove a Noctua Nh-d15 to get to the ram. Next time it will be an Aio for me.
  19. The performance of the CPU helps the performance of the GPU and the ram helps the performance of the CPU but as you can see in the video, not by much. I bought 2 3200mhz 16gb sticks a few weeks ago. Since I have 2 systems each with a i7 8086ks at 5ghz and 2080 tis I will put 32 in one and leave 16 in the other for a while to see the difference for myself.
  20. It is hard to gauge performance in random 3D game scenes. In a lot of games framerate depends on the direction of travel. An example is Metro Exodus. At 1080p I can get a 100fps frame rate difference just by turning around. When I want to see if my 2080 ti setup it doing its job i use TimeSpy and Firestrike to test. Game benches are good as well since they use the same scene for everyone.
  21. I think it is a tuff one. I have 2 similar setups. Both have 3200mhz ram. Videos like this helped me decide.
  22. I prefer LGs. Right now I am using this one. https://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-Adjustable-Monitor-DisplayPort-Freesync/dp/B075NL1HLG/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=LG+32UD59-B&qid=1568134580&s=computers&sr=1-2 I own an older version of the Samsung (U28E590D). It is a 10 bit (8 bit + FRC) TN panel. Right now it is my spare monitor. I also own the 28" ASUS MG28UQ. Like the Samsung it is a NT 10 bit (8 bit + FRC) monitor and it is the best 4k panel for running 1440p I have come across. I would get the LG because it is newer tech and it has HDR10 that looks good in games like Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
  23. Not really. Since I am planning to buy a $2000 monitor(LG 38GL950G) hopefully before the end of the year I don't think I am the type of person that cares about saving money.
  24. I have a 3440 X 1440 60hz monitor as well and I did upgrade it. In my tests with it I knew that going past 100hz was a bit pointless with the types of games I play with a 1080 ti. The monitor I picked was the LG 34GK950G-W because I like G-sync. Since then I have seen reviews with the LG 34GK950F-B a Freesync version that may have changed my mind. In the end I got a 38WK95C-W that is a 3840 X 1600 38" 75hz monitor mainly because 3440 X 1440 looks low res compared to 4k. The monitor will eventually be replaced with a LG 38GL950G shown in the LTT Buyers Remorse video. That will give me the high resolution I like with a high refresh rate. I have G-sync monitors and Freesync monitors and with a Nvidia cards I would only get a Freesync monitor over 75hz that has been tested by a trusted source.
  25. TNs are ok if they are 10 bit (8 bit + FRC). The 278Q is a 8 bit (6 bit + FRC) panel. That is a no go to me.
