    NDRE reacted to VioDuskar in What is PCIe 3.0 x16 @ PCIe 1.0 x16?   
    this is correct. GPU-Z should tell him this in the little tool tip, or in the render test.

    NDRE reacted to Fasauceome in What is PCIe 3.0 x16 @ PCIe 1.0 x16?   
    bandwidth is cut to reduce power, since the card is at idle. when gaming, it'll be @PCIe x16 3.0

    NDRE got a reaction from TofuHaroto in RAMDisk partition memory allocation?   
    Hello! 
    I’ve learned something new today about ImDisk program. 
    It has an option to allocate memory dynamically. 
    So with other words, after assigning a size for the RAMDisk partition (8GB for example), the PC won’t keep all of that memory amount unavailable for the system. The only amount unavailable for the system will be the amount of occupied space located on the RAMDisk partition.

    You should never do that. It's almost always better to have a page file even if set to something small like 256 MB .. 1 GB.
    The amount of writes to page file are low and won't hurt your SSD.

    Apparently yea I thought it only used the amount when needed but I guess not 
    Well we learned something today lol

    I have the 8700k, but the 9700k just seems like a better buy.

    I was in the same boat. Got the 8700k. Kinda wish I got the 9700 but after all this back and forth and them being so close, I realized I should have got the 9900k.

    8700K for its HT
    9th gen desktop i7 are the only i7s ever in Intel history without HT.

    I think that you, also, need better cooling!

    NDRE got a reaction from Thomas001 in Stock Intel 9900k 100 degrees Celsius when stress test with Prime95 29.8 b6 normal?   
    I’d worry if the temperatures of my CPU (i7-9700K) would get over 80 celsius degrees! 
    Investing into a liquid cooling solution is vital!
    Mine ain’t that beefy (Corsair H45), but it keeps my CPU below 80 celsius degrees.

    My Ge force FX 5500 in my old Dell Dimension 4850 is worse, I had the clam shell case with poor or no air flow so, that made things even worse.?

    NDRE reacted to TimoHalofan in Poll: How do you upgrade your PC?   
    Same. Current plans are either a AMD Ryzen 9 3900X or a AMD Ryzen 7 3700X with 32GB ram, M.2 SSD (most likely NVME) and a mid/high range mobo. But depending on how much time it's gonna take me to get the money I might only upgrade when the next platform rolls around.

    You don’t have to reinstall the audio driver. Just check if you have some fx settings enabled in Control Panel - Audio Settings, as suggested above.

    NDRE got a reaction from IAmAndre in What microphone would you recommend to cancel background noises?   
    Unfortunately no, because I use specialized software after recordings to silence the background noises.
    But it should be pretty easy to find a cheap one on eBay.

    NDRE reacted to porina in Does permanent usage of memory XMP Profiles shorten the life of the system?   
    For gaming benchmarks you're going to have to look for other sources yourself. It isn't zero difference, but it wont be the 16% difference either. Expect it to be on the lower end.
     
    For non-gaming benchmarks, most don't seem to have too big a factor in bandwidth. The only two I know of as good examples that do scale with ram are Aida64 Photoworxx and Prime95 large FFT.

    1, not in any meaningful way
    2, maybe.
     
    Things have got a lot better over the years, but compatibility is still not 100%. Some boards, some CPUs, some ram just wont get along. The faster the ram, the higher the chance it doesn't work. Last night I put in HyperX 4000 ram into a system with i3-7350k on Z710 chipset mobo. The ram has XMP profiles at 3600 and 4000, so I tried 3600 first. It booted, but running ram stability test it gave errors so that was out. I'll try different ram in it later. 
     
    Don't forget that by having faster ram, you potentially allow the rest of the system to do more work. If you're close to the limit of stability already, it could push you over. As long as the system has adequate cooling, and you're not doing a crazy overclock of the CPU, it should be fine.
     
    Also, unless you really need more ram, or want different looking ram, I wouldn't bother with an upgrade from 2666 to 3200. It will give a small performance boost here or there, but it isn't going to really change much.

    3200mhz is so slow, it will work fine, and wont affect anything.
    If you were running 4266mhz ram i would be worried, but 3200mhz at 1.35mhz is totally fine. In fact, that is exactly the ram i am running now, same timing and everything.

    NDRE reacted to Origami Cactus in Does permanent usage of memory XMP Profiles shorten the life of the system?   
    Yes
    No
    It shouldn't, but if your system is unstable lower the ram speed. It depends on your motherboard and platform thought.

    NDRE reacted to Firewrath9 in What’s the differency between memory real latency 12ns vs 11.25ns?   
    depends.
    on the uArch and what workload you are using. for example, if you are using a memory bandwidth heavy application (i.e. idk AIDA64 disk and cache benchmark), it might make a 1-3% difference, might be more on ryzen 1st/2nd gen, less on intel. the bandwidth is major difference. The only time you should start to tighten timings is after you get to the highest possible frequency (with loosening timings, 4600mhz CL24 is better than 3200mhz CL16) or 3733mhz on ryzen 3rd gen.
    subtimings don't really help much, even on memory and cache benchmarks.

    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the integrated GPU on the 9700k surpasses a GT 640. The regular GT cards have always been a really bad value, and that's one from 2012. You'd see an enormous improvement by spending a little money on an RX 570.

    NDRE reacted to Oz_aka in Intel Optane Memory for those who have M.2 NVMe SSDs?   
    I don't think it works with PCIE / NVME devices, only SATA.
     
    Even if it did, it would be close to no improvement
     
    Pulled from intel Website :
     
    Intel® Optane™ memory can accelerate any type of SATA-based storage media, including SATA SSDs. However, performance benefits of adding Intel® Optane™ memory are greater on slower storage devices like an HDD, versus a faster storage device like a SATA-SSD.
