Upgrade 3930k to 8700k for 1080ti?

14 minutes ago, Andrew279cz said:

Well, I live in the Czech Republic and most PC components are rather expensive. But as you've said, around the 500$ budget.

 

1. My FPS stays around 90 at high, but the GPU I had previously (R9 290x) stayed around 70-75 at high.

 

2. I tried Titanfall 2 where CPU usage was around 25% and GPU in high 90%. The FPS was noticable better than the 290x. When I get home I can test more games. Also i should note that I have extensively tested Firestrike (https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/28608478), and during the combined test CPU stays at 55% and gpu at 55% usage.

 

3. Not really but, sometimes there can be a decent lag spike (to 40fps in BF1), but this happens only rarely (doesn't depend on action)

 

Honestly I don't really want to go into the high OC land with the chance of breaking my MoBo and loosing out on the $ I could get back frin reselling it.

X79 motherboards are SUPER hard to come by, so you can probably get decent money. That's why there's so many CPUs floating around, but no one wants to give up the boards.

 

Yeah, you're getting a pretty bad CPU bottleneck. But like I said, try overclocking some more. Maybe try for a couple hundred more MHz. Probably won't do much but it'll help. Titanfall is a CPU dependent game though iirc so you'll probably see worse framerates there than in other games. Like everyone else said, wait for the 9000 series CPUs to be released. Even if you don't buy them, it might drive the cost of the 8000 series down a bit. Worth the wait imo (remember to quote in responses)

Good day!

 A few days ago I upgraded my gpu to 1080ti (Evga FTW3), but my cpu is a i7 3930k at 4.1Ghz, which I upgraded to 2 months ago. 

Originally I didn't plan on going with such a powerful gpu, so that's why I chose this cpu. But the 3930k is bottlenecking the gpu pretty badly (60% cpu usage, 60% gpu usage in BF1 and others).

 

So my question is: Should I get a (used) 8700k + MoBo + RAM and sell my 3930k + MoBo + RAM, or try to OC the 3930k higger and just lice with it? (temps stay around 55C)

 

Also, a side question. Do you sell your PC while they have some value (~2 years) and build a new one? Or just upgrade some parts?

 

Thanks in advance!

Well I think the upgrading question will be answered by how much money you have to spend at any given time.

 

A few questions before I answer whether or not you should upgrade:

1. What are your framerates in BF1 while under that usage?

2. What are your usage/framerates in other games (if you have that info available)?

3. Do you experience hard stuttering or flickering while gaming, in those usage situations?

 

I think no matter what you end up doing, you should up the OC and see what happens. It's free, and if it works then you save $500, and if it doesn't then you know 100% that you should upgrade.

even if you OC you will bottleneck bad. find the 6/16 variant cpu for your board on a newer gen series and maybe (not a intel guy) you can eliviate the bottlenecking without buy whole new system?

If you can afford the upgrade, wait for the 9th gen CPU's to arrive.

I still have my old GTX 660 for troubleshooting since Ryzen doesn't have an iGPU. CPU, Mobo, and RAM I sold. Everything reusable, I reused.

It is true...a 8700k would be the best gaming cpu atm. However, I am not 100% convinced that you are experiencing a worthy bottleneck to justify an upgrade. Can you provide more details to show this bottleneck. 

 

Also, wait for the latest gen intel to release before you upgrade.

Well, I live in the Czech Republic and most PC components are rather expensive. But as you've said, around the 500$ budget.

 

1. My FPS stays around 90 at high, but the GPU I had previously (R9 290x) stayed around 70-75 at high.

 

2. I tried Titanfall 2 where CPU usage was around 25% and GPU in high 90%. The FPS was noticable better than the 290x. When I get home I can test more games. Also i should note that I have extensively tested Firestrike (https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/28608478), and during the combined test CPU stays at 55% and gpu at 55% usage.

 

3. Not really but, sometimes there can be a decent lag spike (to 40fps in BF1), but this happens only rarely (doesn't depend on action)

 

Honestly I don't really want to go into the high OC land with the chance of breaking my MoBo and loosing out on the $ I could get back frin reselling it.

This is my plan, wait for the 9th gen and snipe a 8700k and MoBo + RAM if I can

Just figured out how to use the quote ;)

When I tried OCing the CPU for the first time I tried to go with 4.4Ghz at 1.3V, but the system got stuck in a rebooting loop. So I had to reset and the same happened at 4.3Ghz at 1.3V. So I started from the bottom and stuck with the 4.1Ghz at around 1.2V.

But I don't really want to push the board that far, because I have no replacement and new (used) ones are, as you've said, hard to come by + expensive.

 

About Titanfall, honestly I think otherwise, previously I had a 2400 with the 290x and in Titanfall 2 I could stay around the 50 fps, while in BF1 it was mid 30 with medium settings.

My bad, totally misread the previous post. Must be thinking of another game anyhow. Still, definitely a a limiting factor, as I would hope a 1080 Ti could get more than 90 fps on 1080p lol. You probably went from a GPU limit to a CPU limit in switching from the 290X to the 1080 Ti. Maybe you can get 4.2GHz? or just kinda deal with it how it is lol, 90 fps is a lot better than 50 fps, and whatever you're getting in BF1 I'm sure is better than 30 fps at medium settings.

Well, I could try 4.2Ghz at 1.25V,  when I get home. 

But the fact of the matter is, with the unbottlenecked 290x I'm/Was getting around 75fps, while the 1080ti gets 90fps.

It's quite frustrating to think that I have such a powerful gpu which is getting held back by the cpu.

 

Also, maybe I should note that the GPU boosts to 1974Mhz with temps staying at tops 65C. (Donnu of this is good compared to other 1080ti, couldn't find the answer)

That's probably cause the GPU isn't reaching 100(well 98-99)% usage. Once it does then the temps will most likely climb higher.

Those temps are from Firestrike graphics test where it is utililized on 100-99%.

 

Also, I was wrong when I said I had 30fps in BF1 with 2400 and 290x. 30fps was when I had the 2400 with a 280x (which then died so I bought a 290x).

With the 290x and 2400 it was around which 45 which was playable.

 

So, to end this thread: Try OCing a bit more, if it doesn't help, get the 8700k when 9th gen releases.

 

And at last, for how much do you think I could sell the CPU+MoBo+RAM combo? I bought them from a guy who used them for roughly 6 years in a CAD workstation.

I would look at the current market. I'm not really sure. If you sell it all as a package I would price it at maybe like $200? $150? On ebay they seem to be priced at $100-150, so yeah with the board and RAM I would say $200 is a good asking price. Maybe more since its craigslist lol who knows.

Just to add, 1.3v isn't anywhere close to damaging that X79, or 3930K. You'd have to hit 1.4v before even worrying about approaching that. Honestly, you could try 1.325v + 4.3Ghz. 

 

FWIW the 3930K scores around 1050  in R15, and the 8700k at stock scores about 1400. So the 8700k is a little faster, but it's because of the frequency with the 8700K hitting 4.3Ghz on all 12 threads at stock. If you can close the frequency gap the 3930K won't be as much as a deficit. 

 

Also take into account that you're playing @1080P. Not a lot of people buy a 1080 Ti to play at 1080P anymore. That is more of a higher resolution GPU.

Good to know! So, 1.3V is the "max" for normal 115x CPUs?

Hmm, this is rather interesting, mine stock scored just around 900 in R15 without S&M patch.

 

I though about getting just the 1080 with a possible sli in the future, but the 1080ti was just a way better deal compared to the 1080 sli. Also I like to max out my setting + 144hz, and it makes it a but more "future proof".

1.3v isn't really the "max" for 1151. Its just usually where you see people stop on 1151 because they are using TIM, not Solder so unless you delid you run into temp problems. The 3930K is soldered so you'd be fine up to at least 1.35v, but i have no doubt in my mind that 1.325v is 110% safe to try for 4.3Ghz. Many people abused their 2600k's @1.4v for years. I think 1.325v is certainly safe.

Well, I bought that set for 375$, which was a great price compared to the 8700k which brand new costs around 500$ (here its 1$=1€ + 21% tax).

If I could sell it for above 300$, that would be great.

So, I tried OCing more, and the highest value was 4066Mhz at 1.25V (BLCK 107). Anything higher then that just wont boot (even BLCK 108 at 1.3V)

Temps stayed below 60.

Make sure you're careful with your baseclock, as you also overclock the HDDs and literally everything lol. 107 should be fine though.

Lol, you don't use blck to OC sandy bridge... Above 105 MHz you really start to run into instability no matter what. Keep blck at 100 MHz and use the multiplier only. These things should easily do 4.5 GHz.
