  1. @Visionn312Do you mean the quiet ticking noise? This is the VRM coil whine, it is quite normal. It may be because of the motherboard, or the PSU, or both.
  2. @ToheedThe drivers are not completely fixed yet, but knowing AMD, they will fix it eventually. If you mean PowerColor Red Dragon 5700XT, it is a good card, check out the reviews online. I wouldn't recommend 2060S, and 2070 is considerably more expensive than 5700XT. Captain Obvious says that 5700XT doesn't support Cuda and RTX, which may or may not be useful in your case.
  3. @AntiHeroI'd still try it with H100i after delidding first, the temps will drop and it may be enough. It appears that I was wrong about 200W figure, it is somewhat more than that?
  4. @linttRaIt is done in UEFI, as described in your motherboard's manual. Or a tool like SpeedFan can be used. It is easy to do, but hard to explain?
  5. There is, it's called DOCP, if I remember correctly. Had this board long time ago. Such behavior may be due to incorrect overclock settings, or a failing SSD/hard drive, or a faulty motherboard. Troubleshoot by disconnecting devices one by one to see what causes the problem. Do CLR CMOS first.
  6. Have a look at the video in my signature and the table attached to that video. There are many good options there.
  7. You have to adjust a fan curve for these Zen2 CPUs, they have temperature spikes due to small-sized chiplets. The heat output of the CPU is not high, but the density is high. I'd recommend a good air cooler, it is more than enough, unless you want water cooling for aesthetic reasons. NH-U12S will be enough. However, some of these CPUs and coolers have non-flat contact surfaces, which leads to heat transfer problems with Zen2.
  8. I'd get a good AM4 board and a Ryzen 3700X (or even a 3600), with a possibility to upgrade to Zen2+ when they'll show up. LGA1151-2 (9700K) is a dead-end. It's fast enough, but this platform is finished. You're right, the GTX 1080 will hold you back at 2K resolution.
  9. It's a nice board, but 85 Euros? Have you considered selling the 4790 and buying a modern Intel/AMD platform instead?
  10. @antoine112I'd stay away from Assassin III. The big advantage of their previous Assassin II was that it offered near-top performance for about half of the price. Assassin III offers top performance for top price? But the build quality is lower (it's easy to see in the reviews) and the quality of the fans is questionable. I am not a Noctua fanboi, but their build quality is excellent and fans last a long time. Their support is also great. If you want to save some money, Scythe Fuma 2 appears to be a great cooler.
  11. @antoine112Do have a look at Nocuta NH-U12A, too. Watercooling is kind of excessive for a 9700K (if you don't plan to delid), but adds a risk of leakage and has to be serviced from time to time, unlike Noctua's coolers
  12. @GoldenLagHe has confirmed that the software doesn't require SLI. I don't know this particular software, but I know this to be true for other similar applications. It can even run AMD and nVidia GPUs at the same time.
  13. It depends. His application may or may not be limited by the PCIe throughput. @ldmartinI'd test it with a single card, changing the PCIe speed in UEFI (or putting a card in the PCIe 2.0 slot), and measuring if it would affect performance in your app. It shouldn't be that hard. UPD. Just noticed that you don't have even a single 2070S yet. What card do you have?
  14. With the 1st gen, most likely you'll have to down-clock after installing 4 sticks (or 2 dual-rank sticks).
  15. They have sent an email notification that 3950X was available. But, as someone here noted - sold out immediately.
  16. Why not to sell 7700K and buy a new modern platform instead? A used 7700K is still expensive, for some reason. I believe you could get a new 9600K for the money, or a Ryzen.
  17. CoffeeMod your LGA1151 board (link in my signature) and install something like i3-8350K there, then OC it. I read emulation requires a few, but fast cores.
  18. @ZWELINHTET 3 objections at least: The card you've picked is a reference design (bad and noisy cooling). If you want to install a full-cover waterblock on it - then the reference is the best choice. Otherwise, pick Sapphire Nitro, PowerColor Red Devil, Gigabyte 3-fan model, or MSI Gaming X; Water cooling for Zen 2 is not necessary, the heat dissipation of the CPU is considerably lower than 200W, meaning any good air cooler can cool it. The high temps of Zen 2 are due to the small-area 7nm chiplet which can't pass it's heat to the heatspreader fast enough; GPU again, since you're going to use it for production, confirm if your software is better accelerated by OpenCL, CUDA, or even tensor cores of RTX cards? I've read some companies have added the support already.
  19. Why not 3900/3950X then? Or even wait for a new Threadripper?)
  20. @ZWELINHTETBasically, the boards that @Firewrath9 recommended, depending on prices/availability/brand preference. I read Gigabyte made many good X570 boards this time. As far as I know, CAD software eats as much cores/RAM size as you can give it, so I'd either saved some money with 3700X instead of 3800X, or added to 3900X-3950X. 3800X doesn't make much sense.
  21. If you: Ask this question, and Plan to use the PC for editing, Then the answer is a solid NO, since memory OC is tricky and there is a high chance of using several hours of work because of reboot/BSOD due to an unstable OC. I wouldn't cheap out on a PSU so much, too.
  22. Get as fast RAM with as tight timings as you can get (but reasonable), e.g. there are nice 4000-4500MHz kits available for good price from Patriot and Team Group. First, even if Zen2 now is limited to about 3600-3800 MHz 1:1 MemCLK:FCLK speeds, it may change with Zen2+ (or how will they call it), which will be AM4, too. And you will be able to use the same memory. Second, you always can run a fast kit at slower speed with tighter timings. Third, price for the good 3600-3800 MHz kits is high already, there is not a big difference to add for a 4000-4500 MHz kit Just IMHO.
  23. There are step-by-step guides on this from big channels available on youtube.
  24. The kit is good, but nobody can guaranty an OC, especially if you don't know what to do. It is a common trend that nowadays the manufacturers bin their CPUs, and RAM modules better, selling a higher-speed chips as a faster kit for a higher price Samsung B-die has (or used to have) 4000MHz+ potential.
  25. If you really think you'd tried everything and it didn't help, contact Noctua's support, they will help.
