  1. Point of reference, I have one of the cheapest 5700xts (xfx RAWII) but with a minor undervolt and custom fan curve it performs well and is very manageable thermals
  2. locked i5? you'll be fine. The VRMs won't throttle until like what, 100c? at the stock voltage of around 1.15-1.2v it won't get that hot as long as your airflow isn't complete trash. I would do it as long as the price is right. If you can get a Ryzen 5 2600/3600 + a B450 for no more than 50% more than the cost of the 9400, i'd get the Ryzen instead. Currently in the USA, A 9400F is around $200 and a Ryzen 5 2600 is ~$120 and a decent B450 is $100. In this price case, the 2600 makes a lot more sense.
  3. I'm saying the 7400 is almost already maxed out with the 580. Adding a 2070 doesn't make sense as in most new games the gpu will be underutilized thereby being a waste. Adding a faster CPU to a 580 at least will improve stuttering, if not max fps.
  4. Keep in mind the 7400 is worse in every way compared to the 6600k / 7600k, and the results for that CPU will be worse. And the 1600 itself is hugely surpassed by basically everything 3000 now.
  5. The 7400 is far behind a 9400, which has it best by 50% resources. Multiple tests prove that 4/4 is pretty much an unpleasant experience not because of maximum fps but the stuttering you will get from newer games. 0.1% lows and frametimes are considerably worse of 4/4 CPUs which make them essentially obsolete in the gaming world. Especially if you are considering pairing it with a 2070. Now, something like a 7600k or 8350k can SOMEWHAT alleviate the thread deficiency with overclocking, but again, tests show time and again that's already at its limit I'd say it's fine with a 580.. But pairing with a 2070 seems like an imbalanced combination.
  6. The 580 is considerably stronger than the 1050 ti And the 1700x has twice as many cores and SMT....in modern game that will be more helpful than a GPU upgrade on a locked 7400. OP, I'd upgrade the CPU to something modern; you can hold out on that RX 580 fora little while. Anew GPU now might improve maximum FPS but a new CPU now will improve your gameplay experience.
  7. for $299 i'd rather get a 5700 if you don't mind missing out on NVENC. 2060 isn't really good enough for RTX anyway. The 5700 beats out the 2060 and has more VRAM, and only slightly behind the 2060s for $100 less.
  8. had a problem with Vega 64 in the past which was resolved with using both. but that was a much more power hungry card.
  9. Usually in my experience RealBench does a pretty decent job as a multi-component stress test.
  10. Well, if it doesn't crash during apps...then it won't irritate you. If that makes sense.
  11. Using separate PCIE cables, not the daisy chain? also what psu
  12. If you aren't making money off your PC or doing anything incredibly important on it, being 100% 24-hour prime stable isn't really necessary IMO. A few hours of RealBench and no crashes in the apps you use is plenty fine for a regular user, IMO.
  13. never tried it. prob. power on but nothing will actually do anything else
