Best ram for 5.3ghz all core i9-9900ks???

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

What's the best ram for a silicon lottery 5.3ghz i9 9900ks all core cpu? (there is no budget) to achieve the highest possible in gaming, 1080p, lowest settings in games. ( to reach that 240fps with a 240hz monitor )

 

not sure if i should use a single titan rtx or 2080 ti sli-nvlink

Wow that sounds like you're seriously overspending on your parts for what you're trying to do with your PC.

 

Just any decent ~3200MHz CL15 kit will do. Intel CPUs don't really benefit from anything over 3000-3200MHz anyway.

The Titan RTX is just slightly faster than a 2080Ti, and isn't intended for gaming anyway, so it's not worth going with it. Also, SLI is slowly dying, as many recent games barely benefit from it anymore or just drop support for it altogether.

Find the fastest Samsung b-die available and hope you can reach its advertised speeds.

 

And at 1080p I would say single GPU.

Might want to wait until April for both nVidia's and Intel's new releases... the i9 10900K and RTX 3080 Ti sounds more like the overkill PC you want to put together.

 

That said, memory wise? something like: https://www.gskill.com/specification/165/326/1562839044/F4-3600C14D-16GTZN-Specification

 

3600mhz CL14 XMP profile means the chip in there is binned as hell and with such tight timings you'll have the best performance possible.

The amount of time you're spending flip-flopping back and forth between hardware is hardly worth the performance difference you'll see between any of it lol. Just pick something and build it already. You've gotten so many replies that at this point I don't think you'll ever be able to pick.

this is true it's either go for that or wait for the 3080 ti

 

or go for a 2080 ti and wait for 3080 ti

Just trying to see the best builds for intel and amd would look like and choose from that.

i was thinking of doing 3950x amd ryzen but now it seems like i can get my hands on a 5.3 ghz i9 9900ks all core so my build is going to have to change

For gaming, one of the high end 2080 Ti's will actually beat out even a power modded Titan RTX as far as max FPS. How do I know? because I have two power modded Titan RTXs in my HEDT rig, and a Kingpin 2080 Ti in the gaming rig. For games that don't work with SLI (aka most games), I get maybe 5% higher FPS on the single Kingpin card than on one of the power modded Titans (max TDP increased to ~ 434 watts, vs the Kingpins OC BIOS 520w tdp - remember 2080 Ti and Titan RTX are both the TU102 GPU, with ever so slightly more cores enabled on the Titan).

 

Thankfully for my ego, some newer games are still getting SLI support so I play Jedi Fallen Order on the HEDT rig.

 

*EDIT*

Also, the Titan RTX 'not being intended for gaming' is irrelevant to someone's personal value though I agree that for gaming nobody should buy it now that I've learned my lesson with the Kingpin 2080 Ti. 


You're a little confused on your SLI though - most games forever ('most' here meaning more than not, so over 50%) have not worked with SLI. This has never been different. In general, if a game will run with SLI enabled, scaling is generally pretty good and 'recent games barely benefit from it anymore' is false. Jedi Fallen Order is giving me almost perfect scaling across two cards. Also, games don't "drop support" for SLI. They generally don't work with it enabled, and sometimes end up being updated later to allow it to work - and SLI working out of the box is done via Nvidia creating SLI profiles specifically for each game - the game developers do not create the SLI profiles.

Since the majority of games do not work with SLI, I would suggest buying an EVGA Kingpin 2080 Ti or the Galax HOF 2080 Ti (the one with 3 8-pin PCI-E power connectors) as they will outperform a Titan RTX for max gaming FPS.

 

If you really want to max it out, full custom water cooling with at least a 360mm radiator for each CPU and graphics card (so 2x 360mm or larger radiators) and to incorporate the Kingpin card you'll need to put a full cover water block on it (it comes as a hybrid card with a VRM fan and a 240mm AIO attached for the GPU/memory) which right now can only be had with a Bykski block since EVGA only made a handful of their Hydro Copper blocks for the KP card and they all sold out last summer.

 

You could, of course, wait for the 30-series cards later this summer if you want even more FPS.

hardware unboxed recently did a video that confirmed that 4 sticks of memory is alot faster than 2 sticks, way more than overclocking your cpu by 2-4%, so just get the 9900ks from silicon lottery, 4 sticks of that cl14 3600 ram, single 2080 ti kingpin, and call it, if you have no budget no point waiting.

 

I'm still waiting for the 3950x with that ram...lol

Isn't this the best 2080 ti? someone told me it is, is kingpin really better?

I was planning to get the 2080 ti asus matrix ( but for some reason my order got cancelled and they removed the store )

The cards with 3 8-pin PCI-E power input connectors have much higher max TDP than cards with only 2, plus the companies who make them are binning the GPUs they receive from Nvidia and only putting the very best ones onto those graphics cards. 

Card cooling being equal, the Kingpin (or I'm sure Galax HOF as well) will maintain higher clocks overall than any of the 2 PCI-E power connector cards simply because it won't hit power limit as quickly. Nvidia limits how much power can be drawn per connector, so all the normal cards will end up running into the same power wall. EVGA and Galax get around this by adding a 3rd connector.

That Gigabyte card you linked is a normal 2-pin card.

Alright so kingpin is the best one, got it.
