  1. Yeah 5.1 is possible, but only @1.425 volts and that is just way too much for a little extra performance
  2. Seems like normal coil whine to me. Its totally different fron one GPU to the next. Also since you upgraded the CPU, the usage may have gone up - changing the sound with it. My 2080 Strix also has different types of coil whine, depending on the game. However, extreme coil whine may also be an indicator of a faulty PSU. That however is really tricky to determine. I hope you can get to the bottom of this ^^
  3. Welcome to my life. A mate got his 9700k to 5,1GHz @1.35 Volts, Im out here with a delidded 8700k 5GHz @1.375 Volts
  4. Wow, this is really weird. I have not experienced anything similair to this. It seems like an unstable OC, but since you havent oced anything it is extremely curious. Id really just try to switch the PSU to an equal one, not your old since this also has problems
  5. Well there is a limit on how much a GPU is used in those programmes. Here is a good video from Gamers Nexus concerning this. I have a normal 2080 and dont think you really need the 2080ti if you only have a 1080p 144hz screen.
  6. I ordered 2 systems during Black Friday: Ryzen 2600 & Asrock Steel Legend Ryzen 2700 & MSI Gaming Pro Carbon Those seemed like the best buys for me after watching reviews on Youtube and some forums, Ill post an update as soon as they arrive ^^
  7. Well those thermals are pretty good. Do you have the chance to swap the PSU and see if that fixes it?
  8. I have the 8700k, but the 9700k just seems like a better buy. 8 true cores no toothpaste between the ihs and the die easier to OC in my experience
  9. 3600 no questions asked imo. Hyperthreading, Upgrade paths etc
  10. How are the temps? Could be an overheating problem. Also the PSU may be faulty
  11. As most intel CPUs you should aim below 70C while gaming, if you got a heavy OC and not over 90 while running a stress test like Prime95 For a light overclock like youre aiming for, go for something like 60C during gaming and about 80c during stress test. Keep in mind your cooler will be important during overclocking, dont try to force stuff with the stock heatsink.
  12. Seems like one of your RAM modules is not working 100%. If you can narrow it down which one exactly, maybe try replacing it with a different one and see if it works without crashing. If that works, then RMA the defect kit, if you still can.
  13. As long as you dont go way overboard with the voltage and keep your temps in check, there is in my experience nothing to worry about. Maybe even try to keep the voltage stock and just see how far your CPU can go with that.
  14. Dont have much experience with Ryzen OCing, but with my 8700k an unstable Mem OC was "fixed" by upping the memory controller voltage. But that probably wont work for you, since every RAM kit and CPU memory controller is different. Some kits wont ever reach those settings you try to archieve, just because you recieved a bad overclocker. Try to increase the kits base XMP frequency little by little and see what is stable.
  15. Why is your 6600k not overclocked? Id try that first before spending money on a new CPU and Mainboard
