  1. Couldn't wait needed a better PC setup and as I have pointed out I believe the just because we will have the AMD info in October does not mean the equivalent to the 3950x will even be out this year, from what I understand it is usually a staggered release. BTW the 3950 rocks! omg handbrake transcoding and 7zip compression is amazing, also installing a 89gb Wabbajack SkyrimVR Ultimate mod list went so damn fast I didn't even have time to make a drink. x264 stream encoding on 1440p 8500bitrate with all the shiny turned on uses less than 20% cpu usage. I love it.
  2. bios, updated to latest version. AMD 3950x MSI X570 Tomahawk Wifi Arctic Freezer II 360mm 32gb Vengeance 3600mhz m2 Sabrent 1TB EVGA 1080TI Everything in Bios is Default except XMP turned on and gameboost turned on. Temps are 36 idle 65c Max New to AMD builds and MSI boards ( my last was a 8700k in an gigabyte Aorus) Anything I should turn on or off in the bios.
  3. Oh my chicken soup loader! this PC is fast, I just did the extract and install of an 89gb Wabbajack Skyrim VR mod list and I have never seen a PC extract stuff so fast :)
  4. 2 years ago I searched through most of the "bespoke" "custom" "oak" and all that jazz furniture stores for an item I needed, the price I got quoted was £2700 I was on a time table, my Wife was coming out of hospital about to start home dialysis and our living room was being turned into a bedroom for her, complete with full entertainment system and a 55" UHD TV at a range from her chair equivalent to a 28" monitor on a desk, I had Oculus rift, Xbox one X, Ps4 and a gaming computer I built, plus her crafting items, I managed to get a wall unit from Ikea that cost £399 fit a 5ft by 5ft wall alcove, including a set of cupboards for all her medical equipment. I built it in a night (2am by the time I finished). Now three years later that unit is still behind me (you see it when I stream) the room is now my living room after my Wife died in 2018, it is still solid and now sits my LG 55" ps4, Xbox one X and gaming equipment. The point of this story is that unit is NOT garbage and will probably outlast me, it is rigid in construction and very well designed.
  5. Or try one of the lighter Noctua air coolers NH-U14s or NH-C14 very good coolers maybe overkill but a lot lighter than the big ones. Very reliable for this kind of situation.
  6. Plus as I was just reminded by a subcriber I want to get back into VR again, OBS (Streaming and recording) + OVR Drop (twitch chat in VR) + Natural Locomotion for movement + A fully modded skyrim on Valve index, the extra cores may help a little, it can't hurt lol.
  7. It is more about the transcoding of the raw footage afterwards for youtube, atm I am having 2 hours downtime between streams while I use handbrake to take the raw footage to 1080p before Youtube upload drops it from a 50gb file to about 5gb.
  8. Please reread my post. Nvenc is okay but I find it drops my FPS in games vs using a CPU encoder but as my post explains and I went into more details it is more to do with transcoding the recorded file 50gb for youtube afterwards.
  9. Stream games, vlogs, in 1440p recorded raw version about 50gb usually for 2 hours gets transcoded via Handbrake to 1080p for youtube, I am also getting more into blender and want to add my own animations and intros. Single PC streaming setup. stream about 5 hours a day would be more but my i7-8700k takes almost 2 hours to transcode meaning down time between streams.
  10. Hi all, My build is almost complete all the below is installed and ready (except memory that arrives in the morning) X570 MSI Tomahawk Wifi. 32GB DDR4 3600 Corsair Vengeance. Arctic Freezer II 360mm Sabrent 1TB m2 Samsung 1TB SSD EVGA 1080ti (temporary until I grab a 3080 or 3090 later in the year.) Tomorrow my finger is ready to push the button on the last part the 3950 although 3800, 3900xt are also options. Before anyone says it, yes I know the 4000 series is just around the corner, but I can't wait, need to get this machine live within this week. plus even though the 4000 series is being announced 8th October no guarantee that flag ship equivalent of the 3950 will be available before next year. I stream gaming in 1440p also record and upload for Youtube in 1080p (transcoding on my i7-8700k takes too long) Lets discuss this before my money goes bye bye. Here is the pc as it sits now. It is lonely without a CPU. Added the below from my reply. Stream games, vlogs, in 1440p recorded raw version about 50gb usually for 2 hours gets transcoded via Handbrake to 1080p for youtube, I am also getting more into blender and want to add my own animations and intros. Single PC streaming setup. stream about 5 hours a day would be more but my i7-8700k takes almost 2 hours to transcode meaning down time between streams.
  11. Yes lol, I was very concerned as it was edged in behind that heatsink.
  12. Thank you Okay decided to go with the Arctic Freezer II 360mm it just fit on the top.
  13. Arrived today and fitted the radiator part (CPU gets here on Tuesday) They may say 65mm but with the Tomahawk x570 board and the VRM heatsink it is more like 63mm there is no gap at all between the radiator and the mag vrm heatsink, so lucky that it fit.
  14. Last AMD card I tried was the nano, so much grief with drivers and glitches compared to just being able to install an nvidia card + driver and get on with enjoying myself. AMD CPU yes, AMD graphics card....hesitant.
  15. Sabrent Rocket 4.0 looks nice and easily available.
