  1. Budget (including currency): about 1500-2000€ Country: Germany Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Playing games and programming Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Current Display: 144 Hz, FullHD, might upgrade later Rig should last a few years. Hey everyone, I am helping a friend plan a new gaming and programming rig and feedback would be appreciated! What we came up with: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Super Windforce OC 8G G.Skill DIMM 32 GB DD4-3600 (Trident Z Neo) Seasonic Focus GX-650 Samsung 970 Evo 500GB and a WD 1 TB HDD We choose the Samsung over a Gen 4 SSD because I heard samsung is the most reliable one. All that goes into an HZXT H710 or H710i, which does not make any difference I guess. So do you guys have any feedback what could be better? Or more balanced? Thanks in advance!
  2. Thanks! I am monitoring my temps with Speccy, which works fine I think yeah found that out about ring frequency aswell...should have read up better! I might try an get RAM 3200 and maybe trying to lower the core voltage a bit when I got time. Thanks for the input might try that AIDA 64 trial!
  3. Well yeah...tbh: I thought it was turbo speed.... as I said: no experience so far... But well: I got it to 4.8 GHz right now with a ring speed of 4.5 Ghz and 3000 MHz RAM and it seems to work! at least the last 5 min stress test are working! I got voltage 1.35, 1.1, 1.1 and 1.35! my temps are at like 73-75° Celsius, which should be fine? Looking forward to test it out in games tomorrow! After that, fine tuning voltages Thanks you guys so much!
  4. Well I tried both, everthing by its own, combined. PC crashed before I could fire up the stress test. Maybe its just a question of fine tuning it, I will read up on it and try it on the weekend. Thanks so much guys!
  5. well, 4.6 is only the single core turbo I think, mine turbos mostly to 4.3 with all cores. But thanks, I will try that!
  6. Thanks so much for the OCCT tipp! But well, bad news for me: XMP: nope, crashes after like 5 seconds of test.... CPU: well I just wanted to post: well it works with 4.5 GHz but crashes with 4.6...then it crashed with 4.5... I am running OCCT now with normal - non overclocked - settings to see is that runs okay. So what I get from that: either my hardware won't overclock well, or I need non auto voltage levels I guess. So I take from it: no super fast overclock here, I will at least to read up on things so I might try again, thanks for the help!
  7. Hey everyone, first things first: This is my first overlock like ever, so sorry if I am no expert on it. Hardware: CPU: Intel Core i5 9600K Mainboard: MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PLUS ATX Intel 7B51-00 Cooler: EKL Alpenföhn Matterhorn Black Edition Rev. C RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 2x8GB DD4 3200MHz C16 XMP 2.0 PSU: be quiet! Pure Power 10 cm ATX 600W BN278 GPU: ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 Super ROG Strix Gaming OC 8 GB I was kinda unhappy with my i5 the last couple of months, so I decided to try overclocking it a bit. I left all the voltage things on auto, because I did not know any better. Base Clock is 100 MHz, Multipliers are set to 45 base and 46 ring. Task Manager shows 4.47 Ghz. I am using StressMyPC 3.77 (Because I searched for a random stress test, which I do not need to buy). My CPU is running for like 15 minutes now at 4.47 Ghz with 67° Celsius. I also turned XMP on, it got my RAM from like 2166 MHz to 3200 MHz (I just wanted to reach its rated speed, nothing more crazy), its still like 50% faster clock speeds. Now, my CPU overclock seems to run okay with that stress test. My questions: 1. Did I do something like really wrong in your opinion? 2. Do you think I could/should push it further? If so, for what should I go? 3. Is there a way for me to test i my RAM is stable (with XMP)? 4. Does someone got similiar/identical hardware and has reference values for me? Thanks in advance for any help!
  8. Yeah i know that. I already told him to get a B450 or B550 (might bei top expensive tho) and not an A-series board. And then I also recommended not taking the cheapest B450! Thanks for the input!
  9. Okay thanks, there are actually bundles with a 3600, a b450 and 16 GB in Amazon for like 320
  10. EU pricing ist super weird...I always think: yay, those parts are great, and since the euro is a rather strong currency, they should be affordable... When i look up the prices, they are Like 10-20 more then in USD...
  11. Budget (including currency): about 300€, but aus little AS possible Country: Germany Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: mostly Games, wants to bei able to play: AC Odyssee, Monster Hunter World, Total Warhammer Franchise Maybe streaming in the future. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): He got Peripherals an Monitor, an 600W PSU, an SSD and a hard drive and a GTX 1660 Super. Resolution planned: 1080p Refresh rate: 60Hz Hey everyone, I am looking for your input again! This ist about a rig upgrade for a friend. The situation: his old GTX 760, which er tot used from ebay died, so he got a 1660 Super as a replacement. He now also wants to upgrade the CPU to keep up and so he can play AC Odyssee and stuff like that. He is using an i5 750 right now, even tho its not the worst CPU, its old and the clock speeds are quiet low. Most games he wants to try out have (at least one paper) higher clock speed requirements. So here ist my question: What would be a good fit for an 1660 Super. Since he doesnt have that much cash to spare, Low budget solution would be nice. Here ja what we thought about so far: Ryzen 3300x I3 9100F I3 10100 With like a mir class Board (B series for ryzen, something similiar for intel) And Like 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, clock speed depending on the CPU. I was suprised that the 9100F seems to have the same gaming results AS the 3300x for a lower price. So so you have any recommendations for gaming only and gaming with streaming? i set the Budget to 300, lower would be nice, but If Like 20 euro more gives a significant Upgrade, that would be fine top. Thanks in advance!
  12. Thanks for the explanation! I figure I'll go for the index, because I mainly play games like beat saber and if I want something portable, I could always keep the old rift but not so much into sims anyway the rift is a cool party toy however For the GPU, I know that I should wait, but I kinda ordered a ASUS ROG 2070 Super OC ^^' I can still not buy it tho, I only ordered it so a shop, but I am really tempted to get it, because of the asus cashback days
  13. Hey everyone, I hope this is the right subsection for this topic. So a friend of mine thinks about replacing his 970 with a 1070. His system has a i5 6600k and a Z170 mainboard, 16 GB of RAM. So we were wondering, is it worth going for the 1070 or will he be bottlenecked by the CPU? As far as I could find out the 1070 could get up to 50% increase in FPS. Anyone got any experience with a simular setup? Thanks in Advance!
  14. So I can kinda wanna revive this post. I just saw the details of the reverb g2, and the sreens looks very nice! But sadly it doesnt seem to support Index controller. So I wanted to ask for your opinion. Is the index that mich worse in regards of Display quality? And is updating worth or maybe wait for valve to come out with new Headset?
