  1. Also the Ivy Bridge laptop is a mobile chip so it only goes from 2.3-3.0ghz! The Ryzen is a huge improvement!
  2. I actually swapped in a GTX 1080 I had in my recording/streaming PC last night. The 1060 is going into the recording rig. It should be ok since the 1080 only hits 3% utilization while recording 4k60 from my gaming rig. SO much faster than the 1060 and can use Ultra quality textures thanks to the 8gb vram. Not to mention Ultra everything else... (I'm at 1440p)
  3. I have a new set of GeIL SUPER LUCE RGB SYNC AMD Edition 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model GALS416GB3200C16ADC bought from Newegg. I tried the XMP setting but it does not work with my motherboard (ASRock B450m/AC). I am using a Ryzen 5 2600. The fastest I can get it to so far is 3000mhz with 16, 18, 18, 38 timings. Can anyone help me with other timings I can try that will get me to 3200mhz? Thanks!
  4. Decided to sell my i7 Ivy Bridge laptop and build with the funds from that. It was a $1000 laptop and I upgraded it with 16gb ram (from 6gb), SSD, second HDD, etc. Anyway I figure it is worth about $600 and so that is the budget I decided on for the new build. I found a Thermaltake Core V21 cube case on sale for $50 at amazon, and I love the Core X71 that I put my Threadripper 1950x build in, so I decided to try the little cube case. That limited my MB choices to ITX or microATX, which was fine since I wanted a compact build. I wanted built-in wifi so after a lot of shopping around I decided on the ASRock B450m/AC microATX board. It fit the budget and had no unneeded features. In terms of CPU I waited specifically for the 3000-series chips to launch, so I could grab a previous-gen chip off ebay cheap. Which I did. The used Ryzen 5 2600 fit the budget perfectly and seemed like a solid choice for gaming. Speaking of which I found a really cheap used GTX 1060 6gb, which also fit into the budget nicely. All told I got it done for $14 under my $600 budget and I have replaced a slow(ish) laptop that could barely play games (has GTX 650M) with a capable gaming rig for 1080p and medium+ settings. Plus I can play youtube and load web pages at the same time without the youtube stream stuttering like hell.
  5. 3600 is a better value and performs within a few percent of the x.
  6. Test it stock and overclocked and see what frames you get for each.
  7. Anybody mod their Thermaltake V21 to hold more than the stock 3x 3.5" hard drives? TIA.
  8. I'm waiting for 1880 ti without RTX stupidity to upgrade my 1080 ti.
  9. The entire windows networking shitshow is maddening.
  10. That sounds high in spend and high in hassle. I'm talking about two of these cards connected with a $30 cable for 40GbE speeds and no moving sneakernet gear around. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mellanox-MHQH19B-XTR-Single-Port-40Gb-s-QDR-PCIe-Gen2-5-0-GTs-VPI-Adapter/303139813218
  11. Hello I have a two-pc setup where I game on one PC and record on the other one (in 4k 140mbps, so the files are pretty big). I want to improve on the 1gbps I get over normal ethernet because transferring the files from the recording PC back to the gamer (gamer is more powerful rig for editing too). One of the PCs has a 10GbE motherboard (Gigabyte x399 Aorus Extreme) and I was just going to upgrade the other one with a 10GbE NIC or switching to a MB with it built in, and then just directly connect them with a crossover cable. But then I heard about Infiniband NICs that you can supposedly get for $30 for 40GbE speeds. Anybody done this? Again, I don't want or need (I hope) a switch since I plan to directly connect them. Also, is there any way to directly connect two PCs over USB-C?
  12. THIS ACTUALLY WORKS! Now to set a macro to execute this every time I boot up... Thank you.
  13. I have two PCs in my office, one for gaming, the other for recording. The gaming PC is far more powerful than that recording PC so I use the gaming PC for editing as well. So every time I record a clip I have to transfer the file to the the gaming PC so I can work on it. Trouble is, I can't seem to reliably get the two PCs talking to each other or even noticing the other is there. I can ping each from the other, have set up fixed IP addresses for each machine, Network Discovery is turned on on both machines, I have manually turned on (and set to automatic) the DNS Client, Function Discovery Provider Host, Function Discovery Resource Publication, SSDP Discovery, and UPnP Device Host services. SOMETIMES it works, but not reliably and not right now. Any help appreciated.
