Possible bottleneck

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, i'm looking to buy this build: 

PCPartPicker Part List:

 

 

CPU: Intel - Core i5-9600K 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor 
CPU Cooler: be quiet! - Dark Rock Pro 4 50.5 CFM CPU Cooler 
Motherboard: MSI - Z390-A PRO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard  
Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory 
Storage: Seagate - Barracuda Computer 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive  
Video Card: Zotac ZT-T20710F-10P GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8GB GDDR6
Case: NZXT - H500 ATX Mid Tower Case 
Power Supply: Corsair - CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply  

 

I'm wondering if it will bottleneck hard since it's an i5 and a 2070 super and if it's okay buying them

No you will be perfectly fine using an RTX 2070 with this i5 9600k. You will have a pleasant experience.

Either it will bottleneck the bottleneck so hard that the bottleneck gets bottlenecked, or it will work just fine. 

 

It depends on how you use it... 

 

But IMHO as long as you go above 4 ghz with the I5 you shouldn't have much issues... but yes the cpu will bottleneck the gfx card due to it being at near 2080 level of performance.

 

But even an I7 or I9 will bottleneck... so personally when building a new rig I too would go for an I5 but not a 2070, only a 2060 if... ok I only run 1080p so that will be enough.


2 Main Systems (mine and my late wifes): AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX. (one of those got a Gainward Phoenix GS 1060 if I had waited only a month longer ^^) 

 

On the Road: Acer Aspire 5 Model A515-51G-54FD, Intel Core i5 7200U, 8 GB DDR4 Ram, 120 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, Intel CPU GFX and Nvidia MX 150, Full HD IPS display

 

Media System: Asrock ASRock Z87 Extreme4/TB4, Intel Core i5 4460, 16 GB Ram DDR3 1600 ADATA XPG, 1 275 GB SSD, 4 Seagate Ironwolf 4TB HDD in raid 5, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX (the 560 will be replaced with one of the 760 due to better effeciency)

 

(Abit Fatal1ty FP9 IN SLI, C2Duo E8400, 6 GB Ram DDR2 800, far too less diskspace, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX broken need fixing)

 

Nostalgia: Amiga 1200, Tower Build, CPU/FPU/MMU 68EC020, 68030, 68882 @50 Mhz, 10 MByte ram (2 MB Chip, 8 MB Fast), Fast SCSI II, 2 CDRoms, 2 1 GB SCSI II IBM Harddrives, 512 MB Quantum Lightning HDD, self soldered Sync changer to attach VGA displays, WLAN

Overclock both the CPU and GPU for a better experience, if you have the cooling capability and aren't worried on temps because the 9600k might get a little warmer than some other counterparts.

Depends on the use case, in some use cases, a 8700k can bottleneck a rx 570. (im not being unrealistic here either, i used to use a rx 570 for a few months and my 8700k bottle necked it in overwatch) If you're only gaming if you want 60fps, your good, 144fps you will be fine in most things but i'm near certain something like battlefield 5 wont hit 144fps.

A pity you can't get the EKL Alpenfoehn Gotthart anymore, alse I would have suggested that top blower for your system instead of the dark rock 😃

I'm buying this pc to play things like fortnite battalion and gta in really demanding games i'm not looking to hit 144fps but i wanna hit it in the games i play competetively(fortnite and battalion)
