  1. Maybe I should've put together a Ryzen build instead lol
  2. I've tried stock 2133 and XMP 2666; Yes I have reseated both several times; It's showing as 8 cores/8 threads; Yes I have the latest BIOS for this board (F6c).
  3. nothing else, only the processor
  4. Forgot to mention, temps never exceed 44C.
  5. Okay, So I originally had a i5 9600K. It performed great, loved the chip. As 10th gen released, 9th gen went on sale so I picked up the i7 9700F. I formatted my SSD and installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 with the latest updates. Initially, my cpu was constantly hitting 100% just on the desktop and opening up edge or chrome. Games were completely unplayable at this point. I reinstalled Windows again, which seemed to correct the issue. Now I am getting a lot of micro stuttering when playing cpu intensive games such as Hell Let Loose and Squad. These micro stutters were never a problem with my i5 9600K. Whether the graphics are at the highest settings, or lowest settings, the micro stuttering is always there. I ran the intel processor diagnostic tool as recommended by intel and everything passed. I have completed the following... 1. enabled high performance in windows power plan; 2. disabled power saving options in bios; 3. disabled steam overlay; My specification are in my signature block. Anyone else experiencing this with 9th gen i7's?
  6. For anyone else who experiences this same issue. I have resolved the issue. After I reinstalled Windows 10 again, the second time around everything seems to function as it should. CPU now performs great and rarely reaches 100% usage. Maybe the first time around there was a corrupted system file? Maybe a corrupted boot drive? not exactly sure. I made a new Windows usb boot drive with the software on the Microsoft site, to ensure I had the latest version. Reinstalled, and everything's good to go.
  7. Definitely strange. The base clock speed is lower however, it has a 4.7 turbo boost and 4.4 all core boost. Even if it was 3.0 it should perform better. I have an HP Z400 server with a Xeon E5640 (base clock of 2.66ghz) which can still run most modern titles at a smooth frame rate. My thoughts was a faulty chip as well. It's just so strange, intel has always produced such great cpu's.
  8. Forgot to mention, The cpu temps never exceed 51C. So I know the chip isn't thermal throttling.
  9. For the record, I've been working in IT for several years and have built well over 30 desktops and servers at both the consumer and corporate level. I recently put together an Intel i5 9600K build (see signature). As the i7 9700f went on sale I decided to purchase one for the extra cores and hopefully extra performance. Upon installation I had wiped my SSD and reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows 10 (with the most recent updates). First I noticed the PC was extremely slow to boot, especially since the OS is installed onto an SSD. Running chrome with only 1 tab was extremely slow and while scrolling, I'd experience screen tearing. After starting HWmonitor and running Task Manager it turns out the CPU is running at 100% most of the time. Chrome takes up 56% cpu usage with 1 tab open. Windows Defender takes up 23% while idling, when it initiates a scan, it jumps to 80% and the machine locks up shortly after. With absolutely nothing else running besides background processes, I ran a CPUZ bench, and this is my result. I ended up placing the i5 9600k back in, and the machine runs normal again. Any ideas what would cause a CPU to operate like this? First time I've ever seen this type of thing. Everything was at stock settings.
  10. CADD is a cpu intensive application. I as well, recommend at least an i5 9600k. They're currently on sale at NewEgg and CanadaComputers.
  11. I agree that that motherboard is more likely to be the fault than the power supply. EVGA makes some of the best components in the business
  12. Another thing to try, download "HWMonitor", and run the same games. Try to monitor temps of the motherboard, cpu and gpu to ensure nothing is overheating, causing the machine to power off.
  13. The auto shut off is a fail safe from the motherboard to prevent damage. If it was a GPU issue, the software would just be unplayable and may crash, but not the whole computer. Because the entire computer is powering down it leads me to believe it's a power or motherboard issue.
