  1. thanks for the reply! Guess I'm just paranoid about temps especially with how it affects clocks for ryzen.
  2. Hi Guys, I'm currently running a 3600 and 1070 with EKWB Fluid gaming line up of parts (GPU + 360 Rad Top Exhaust + CPU + 240 Rad Side intake; loop is in that order) My GPU temps are fine, however my cpu temps seem abit high (idle 41-54), stress test 75 - 80 degrees (depending on work load) Typically (60 -70 ish under gaming loads etc I've repasted several times and changed washers (cause the previous ones might be a bit thicker than the manual specified) and while temps have come down abit, I'm still perplexed if these are the kind of cpu temperatures i should be expecting. I am living in a tropical climate where ambient is about 30-32 degrees typically. Was wondering if this is caused by low flow rate due to the pump (still using the SPC) or if this really is all normal for this loop. Any insights/advice would be much appreciated.
  3. For gaming. Think that's cause they don't actually turbo up that high during gaming additionally, i think the effect is very marginal as it's only a few FPS higher. (I don't think you see much till you hit a 20-30 FPS increase personally)
  4. Tried it yesterday and I hit 3600 in cinebench. The clocks fluctuating is something I have to get used to for Ryzen I guess. I guess this means processor is okay and background tasks do indeed take up that much resources.
  5. I'll give that a whirl when I get back home!
  6. Hi guys, after tinkering for a few days, I think it's best I grab a sanity check with the wider internet to see if this behaviour is normal or consistent behaviour for the R5 3600 So I finally upgraded my pc to the R5 3600 running 32GB 3200MHz C16 on a Gigabyte Arorus Pro WiFi. Basically the maximum score I ever got on this particular CPU was about 3400 I'm cinebench 20 and that was straight stock from a fresh install running 2133 Ram. Once I start installing the drivers motherboard various, ghub,synapse icue etc) the score dropped to about 3200 even after enabling xmp and turning pbo+AOC on. Tweaking further meant I was only able to net right now a max of 3300 points tops. I'm running this on water (fluid gaming 240 + 360 + gpu) with temps barely touching 71 degrees and the all core frequency around 4-4.05GHz and the single core frequency at peak 4.175GHz (mostly about 4.15 or 4.125GHz) So my 2 main questions is 1) do background tasks have the ability to affect cinebench scores by so much ? 2) do the scores represent a potentially faulty or underperforming CPU? Thanks in advance for any help or tips or direction you guys can point me in!
  7. We look at only the Graphic score for 3D Mark since this is thje portion we're more concerned with testing at the moment. I'll grab some screen caps later maybe
  8. Temps for GPU and CPU are fine. For usage wise I have not checked on GPU yet (might do it later on when i'm done with my other stuff) But CPU Wise only one or two core is loaded at a time (100% usage)
  9. added testing methodology on first post
  10. I was suspecting that too....but that doesn't justify the low single card scores as well Granted Heaven is not a great benchmarking tool, But even 3Dmark scores were pretty bad.
  11. Forgot to mention the additional stuff I did OTL My bad. Switched out the RAM to 2666 Kits (corsair Vengeance LED) and while a slight boost was not the levels of performance we expected it to be. Also I overclocked the processor to 4GHz to see if the clock speed was the factor but that too netted little results.
  12. Hi, It's been awhile since I last posted here, but ran into an interesting situation at work that had me scouring the internet to no avail. I'm working with an SI right now and Ryzen builds are still relatively hard to come by. So when an order came through for a pretty balling 1800x and 1080ti SLI config I was pretty stoked. Unfortunately we ran into some pretty puzzling performance scores. With the system performing badly. How badly? With SLI the scores were similar to a SINGLE 1070. With a single card, It performed about 1080 levels only. We tested the cards on another system and it posted normal results in line with what we expected. We also tested the affected system with a 1070 and the scores for the 1070 were perfectly fine Has anyone else seen any news item or article talking about this? We even swapped CPUs to ensure it wasn't a faulty CPU. Specs are as follows 1800x generic thin 120mm AIO cooler. Asus X370-Pro 16 2133MHZ RAM x 4 850W EVGA G3 PSU 1080ti FE x 2 Using a HB SLI Bridge (non LED) We tested @ 1080p resolution with heaven @full screen high settings no AA and no tessellation, and just a normal run of 3dmark11
  13. Really like the idea of ta short throw projector. Would be really nice to augment my current room setup with a wider "screen"
  14. i understand. But like i was trying to hound on in my last 2 post, you can really see the importance of W10M in the eyes of a dev; etc not as imptnt as Android or iOS. if we were important or if UWP was of any interest (pairing it with tablets and computers etc) they wouldn't have dropped it. It just shows 1) W10M does not enough user base/provide enough incentive for them to develop an app 2)Even with the UWP And W10 adoption it still sin;t enough for a company to even consider it as vital to their operations. Kinda makes you wonder how MS vision of UWP being W10M saving grace would actually come to fruition. Also your analogy is kinda a moot point seeing as to how GoPro did cut back stuff alrdy.
  15. I know. still shows you hpow alot of companies feel about W10M; nothing more than an afterthought.
