  2. It should work, but I would advise not trying to overclock it or enable PBO.
  3. The 2070S is basically just a slightly toned down 2080 (both are based on the TU104 chip). The Super won't support a technology that the non-Super cards won't be able to.
  4. The VRMs on it aren't great, normally I wouldn't run more than a stock 3600 in it, personally. It should work with the 3700X, but I really wouldn't suggest overclocking with it.
  5. If you already have the motherboard, then I'd suggest running the 3700X without turning PBO on. If you don't already have the motherboard, then I'd suggest looking for a different one (B450-A Pro Max from MSI, for example).
  6. The 1080Ti performs similarly to the 2070S, which is slightly faster than the 5700XT on average, not too noticeable of a difference in most games really, unless you try both of them out next to each other. If anything, I'd expect the 5700XT to outperform the 1080Ti in the long run, as AMD GPUs tend to age really well compared to their Nvidia counterparts. Look for the Powercolor Red Dragon or Sapphire Pulse versions of the 5700XT, they're the best models out there that don't break the bank. Definitely though do avoid the Asus TUF X3 model and preferably the reference blower-style models as well.
  7. As the other mentioned above, the advertised boost clock is the single-core boost, hence why on an all-core load you get a lower frequency. If you've still got thermal headroom, you can try enabling PBO and/or AutoOC or just manually OCing, and maybe you can get slightly higher clocks, but generally these chips don't offer a whole lot more overclocking headroom.
  8. Between those two I'd definitely go for the new 1660 Super, since the 1070Ti isn't that much faster than the 1660S to justify not having a warranty. It also consumes around ~50W less power, so that might be something to consider, especially if you plan on joining the folding team!
  9. Depends on what games you're playing. Most of the AAA titles that launched in the last couple of years require more than a 4C/4T CPU to run properly.
  10. Yes, that's most likely what's causing your issue. Best thing you can do without actually upgrading the CPU is capping the framerate in the game's display settings. You could also try increasing graphics settings, including the render resolution, to sort of balance out the CPU/GPU loads.
  11. Yeah, it looks like a good choice, 3600 CL18 should perform similarly or just slightly better than 3200 CL16 on average if I had to guess.
  12. I'd say TUF X570-PLUS as it can run a 3950X with absolutely no issue, or a Strix X570-F (or X570-E if you find it for a similar price) for the extra bells and whistles, which include better onboard audio. Both are from Asus. Avoid MSI's entry to mid level X570 boards as they are very lackluster in terms of VRMs (even worse than some B450 boards in some cases).
  13. It's one of the most basic Z390 boards out there, so I really wouldn't suggest overclocking a 9900K on it past its all-core turbo, which is 4.7GHz.

  15. Theoretically, it's an offset that will allow you to pump more voltage into the GPU, and more voltage basically means more overclocking. That being said, Nvidia (and probably AMD too) has locked down this setting to stop people from frying their GPUs, which was a pretty common occurance in forums back in the day. I'd leave it as is personally, but if you notice artifacting you could try increasing it, but I wouldn't bet that it would help too much. No worries, hopefully we managed to help you out!
  16. If the picture you've attached is also related to this, then that's not really doing nothing, as the GPU isn't sitting at an idle frequency, so an application that you have open is actively using your GPU for something. If that's not the case, then my guess is that the fans on your card turn off at around 50C, so there isn't really any cold air going through the heatsink to make it drop into the 40s or lower. You can try making a custom fan curve to have the fans turn off at a lower temperature, like 40-45C (though this doesn't work with all cards with MSI Afterburner from my experience), but 54C won't damage the card or anything, so it's not really anything to worry about. If anything, make sure there's ample airflow in your case. 80C is perfectly adequate for full load, not particularly great (as in there's not a lot more headroom left for the card to boost itself), but it's fine. That's the default temp limit for these cards. The Core Voltage setting has been pretty much a placebo as far as I know for a few years now on Nvidia cards (since Kepler or Maxwell iirc). You can try messing with it but I wouldn't expect much improvement over just maxing out the Power Limit. 83C isn't dangerous, but I'd advise not going higher with your OC if you reach 85-88C.
  17. Depends on your budget, but I wouldn't go higher than a 2070S with your CPU. I'd also highly suggest you buy another stick of memory to run in dual-channel, as that will give you a significant boost in performance over single-channel.
  18. PCI-E connectors are not the same as EPS connectors, so one wouldn't be compatible with the other. You will be fine with just one 8-pin in the motherboard, unless you do extreme overclocking (like LN2).
  19. The board needs to be updated to at least BIOS version 1404 to work with the 2200G, per the CPU support list on ASUS' website.
  20. Z97 is the overclocking-ready chipset that launched with Devil's Canyon (your i5-4690K being one of the CPUs of that gen), it was one of the first to feature NVMe support, if I'm not mistaken. So assuming that by "doesn't have any slots for SSDs" you mean M.2 slots, then this would be your only option if you want to keep your CPU.
  21. Use DDU to remove your video drivers and reinstall the latest from Nvidia's website.
  22. It will work for stock speeds, but if you haven't already got it, then I'd suggest going for an air cooler instead. 120mm AIOs really don't offer compelling performance for the price you pay.
  23. There's no reason to worry really, as even if there was a bottleneck your parts wouldn't get damaged or anything, you just wouldn't get the full performance out of whatever component might be getting bottlenecked. In your case, while the 2700 does fall behind Zen 2 (Ryzen 3000) or Intel's Coffee Lake in terms of single-core performance, most games coming out nowadays can fully utilise the 2700's 16 threads which should make up for the lower single-thread perf. Monitor your CPU and GPU usages with something like MSI Afterburner while in-game, if you notice the CPU being pinned at 90-100% usage, then it very likely is bottlenecking your GPU, but I doubt that is the case here. I believe that if you turn up your graphics settings or play at 1440p or higher, then you're most likely getting all of your GPU's performance.
  24. Did you reinstall Windows after upgrading your CPU?
  25. Update your drivers if you haven't already. Personally, I haven't had any issues except for some weird artifacts in-game, but plenty of other people have reported similar issues to yours so it could just be the game acting up for some particular hardware combinations.
