  1. My relatively conservative build. It does need a bit of clean up work. And actually I need a new case. I have had this HAF-X for the past 8 or so years now. The acrylic is pretty scratched up on it. Specs are in the signature. I am getting ready to move into a bit larger place next month. A new desk will be added as well as a better 2nd monitor. Only using a 26" TV for my second at the moment. I hope to have some new pictures to share soon.

    Need help choosing CPU

    Wise choice. What's funny is that my wife told me to make a wishlist on Amazon for things I wanted for Christmas. I had put the 2700 on that list. A couple days later when I caught wind about the Ryzen 3000 chips coming out soon, I had removed it from the list. So that would have meant she ordered it as soon as I made the list. lol I wasn't expecting it. I think I will be upgrading again when they come out though.

    Need help choosing CPU

    For me, I had upgraded from a Ryzen 5 1600 to a Ryzen 7 2700 at Christmas time. While gaming, the differences are not noticeable between the two. For other things I do, it was a nice improvement. But as asked, can you wait a few months for the Ryzen 3000 series chips? That should be a VERY nice improvement.
  4. Triventular is correct. Synthetic benchmarks are not entirely accurate. If you like to post numbers in them, by all means pimp out your rig. If you want good game play, your system will eat all the games it comes across and ask for seconds regardless if you are 2% below the highest scores in 3DMark, or whatever benchmark you are running.
  5. Ummm yeah....That will kick some butt. As for benchmarking, anything from 3DMark is pretty much a standard. Cinibench for CPU testing. Unigine Heaven is also a good one. For quickie system tests, UserBenchmark and Novabench.

    Vcore Settings

    If you are running prime95 and topping out at 80C, that is not bad! It could be better. But while gaming, I highly doubt you will get 100% utilization on all cores so your temperatures will be much lower.

    Is there any headway being made with this issue?

    Well, I have to go to work. Hopefully someone else can help you a bit and solve your problem. Good luck.

    He had very high CPU utilization on the 2nd run. Most likely some background activity may have dragged that score down a bit.

    Ok, something weird is happening. Your CPU dove down to 2.25ghz with that latest run. How are your CPU temperatures?

    It is performing as if it is running at 3.0 ghz. I downclocked mine to 3.0ghz and received a similar score on the CPU. If you look at your benchmark result it says " Base clock 3.4 GHz, turbo 3 GHz (avg) ". That last part where it says 3 GHz (avg) is an indicator telling me that it is running at 3.0 ghz. Just like when I downclocked my system. Base clock 3.2 GHz, turbo 2.95 GHz (avg)

    Also I just noticed that your CPU is only running at 3.0ghz. You might have to do some tweaking in the BIOS to get it up to stock 3.4ghz. Still, you should be performing way better than 40-60fps even with your computer not being quite up to speed. Your videocard is also running slow but not THAT slow. It is performing about the same as my 1070. I am hoping the chipset drivers rectify that.

    Just start with the system and chipset drivers.

    Looks like the CPU isn't running up to snuff at all. Is this a new build? Did you install the motherboard drivers?
