  1. Ryzen CPU Upgrade

    the cooler will mount to the intel socket perfectly fine out of the box...for AMD AM4 though it's another story...
  2. Upgrade

    yes the 970 game well at 1080p and the modern demanding games will bring a i5 3450 to it's knees in no time flat...the gaming experience overall in demanding games will for the most part be noticeably improved with a 6 core coffee lake processor...it's a worthy upgrade. For RAM, you can only overclock it with Z series board, and it's not worth it...don't worry about it...its fine.
  3. Ryzen CPU Upgrade

    Ryzen R5 1600 with a B350 board and 16gb of DDR4 is what i would seek on a budget. R5 1600 VS 2600 is negligeable at best...both will perform well in games for a couple years to come. i5-8600K on a Z370 or i7-8700 on a cheap board is the next best thing from a budget zen kit.

  5. what CPU to buy

    This would be a great upgrade and would last you a long time: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor (£137.94 @ Aria PC) Motherboard: ASRock - AB350 Pro4 ATX AM4 Motherboard (£70.98 @ Ebuyer) Memory: Kingston - Savage 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory (£123.99 @ Amazon UK) Total: £332.91 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-05-27 02:17 BST+0100
  6. IS MY EVGA GTX 1070 sc icx overperforming?

    GTX 1080ti is based on the GP102 graphics core which is actually 3840 cuda cores if fully enabled (Titan Xp) and in the 1080ti some SM are disabled and it has 3584 cuda cores. it's a 471mm square die GTX 1080 is based on the GP104 GPU fully enabled it has 2560 cores and is a 314mm square die.
  7. IS MY EVGA GTX 1070 sc icx overperforming?

    GTX 1080ti is a completely different chip...it's a much bigger die with more cuda cores more mm square a lot more heat, power consumption and performance...it cant be compared...GTX 1070 is a GTX 1080 with some SMX complex disabled...they are made out of the same design. Just in general the GTX 1080 is a fully enabled chip so it's ususally in general a cleaner piece of silicon which will tend to accept high clock speeds before locking up. That's why nvidia has higher clockspeed for the 1080 than the 1070 and if you check ASUS, MSI, gigabyte EVGA etc. of the same model the 1080s will usually have higher base and boost clocks. And out of the box they tend to boost higher. his 1070 is a higher end model, which was tuned by EVGA a bit more with more agressive clocks...make it reach 70c or so though and the clock will take a slight hit like all cards.
  8. IS MY EVGA GTX 1070 sc icx overperforming?

    yes, same apply... GTX 1080 in general has slightly higher boost clocks than GTX 1070 overall...pretty much across every models...i think that's what he's refering to.
  9. IS MY EVGA GTX 1070 sc icx overperforming?

    GTX 1080 in general has slightly higher clocks than GTX 1070 overall...pretty much across every models...i think that's what he's refering to.
  10. GTX 980 FOUNDERS EDITION?

    yes it's better to buy an open air cooler ...even the cheaper ones like the gigabyte winforce or evga ACX are worlds better...MSi twin frozr and asus strix are even better.
  11. IS MY EVGA GTX 1070 sc icx overperforming?

    it's a FTW card and the GTX 1070 is easy to keep cool...im not surprised to see a high boost clock on this card out of the box...play battlefield 1 for 30 minutes or other GPU demanding modern games and you will see bellow 2000mhz clocks im pretty sure but it's a good card you can probably hold 2000mhz+ with some msi afterburner tweaks. You have a good CPU to push it, im sure this machine perform very well.
  12. GTX 980 FOUNDERS EDITION?

    i think it's a fair price.
  13. Gtx 1080ti or 1080 for 1080p ?

    its worth it, get a 1440p screen 144hz+ with a GTX 1080 or a vr headset and race, its worth every penny.
  14. Gigabyte GTX 1060 6gb overclocking tool

    MSI afterburner is by far the best
  15. Skylake on z270 board

    it's like every post you do, you manage to turn it into a ''you should buy a ryzen'' post isn't it?! you forgot to mention that the ryzen is soldered on ihs BTW...
