    bomerr reacted to Chapstick90 in G.Skill F4-4000C15Q-32GTZR vs G.Skill F4-3800C14Q-32GTZN for 5900X   
    The three clock domains, according to AMD, are in a 1:1:1 synchrony, i.e. DRAM SDR clock is the same as uclk and fclk (for example, DDR4-3600 would see the memory real clock, uclk, and fclk run at 1800 MHz. AMD also appears to have increased the fclk limit to 2000 MHz with "Zen 3," so you can run memory clock at up to DDR4-4000 without having to engage the mclk:fclk 1:2 divider, which means DDR4-4000 on "Vermeer" will fetch as much of a real-world performance dividend as DDR4-3800 did for "Matisse." With AMD Ryzen, memory overclocking has been an effective way to improve overall system performance, due to the synchrony between mclk and fclk. and so, noticeable performance improvements can be had up to DDR4-4000, beyond which, you can still engage the divider to push mclk further up.
     
    I went the 4000, only because I feel I can tighten the timings down to 14 with a OC. 
     
    CPU will be 5900X once it launches

    The GPU is different. The 6800 and the 6800XT is a different class of GPU.

    bomerr reacted to Random_Person1234 in Where Gaming Begins - AMD RX6000 series Live Event   
    They compared the 6800XT to 3080, 6900XT to 3090, and 6800 to 2080ti since the 3070 isn't out yet.

    This is their biggest graphics launch since the 290X, maybe even the 7970

    I just bought a 6950x. Do you want my old 1660v3? bad overclocker, only hit 41 @ 1.3v.

    bomerr reacted to dizmo in Where should i start with this?   
    Like I said. It's not worth the effort. Just run it the way it is.
    Unless you're willing to spend hours to get what likely won't be a perceivable difference.
  10. Agree
    bomerr reacted to FaxedForward in Whats the best bang for the buck in GPU's these days?   
    Used 1080 Ti at ~$350 is pretty hard to beat right now, still trades blows with 2070 Super/2080.

    Should've RMA it imo. 
  12. Agree
    bomerr reacted to Skiiwee29 in CL, Speed or First Word Latency   
    Ideally you want Speed, then CL, so for your CPUs listed, you want to get 3200-3600mhz, then as low a CL as you can afford, with the very best being 14 and typical is 16-18. 
     
    These are the sticks I personally use with my 3700x.

    bomerr reacted to Zberg in Why are used 2070/2080 cards selling for so much in Ebay?   
    its just the current demand level.  right now the perfect storm is happening of:
     
    Nvidia not making any more 20 series
    No one can get their hands on the better price/performance 30 series yet (and if they do they are paying huge to scalpers)
    Very limited current supply for anyone looking to purchase right this minute.
     
    As soon as 3070/80s are actually available and in the market, their prices will plummet.  I was looking for a temporary card for 1440p and it sucked...Everything at the local store was 1660ti and below, no RTX to be found.  Nothing on amazon, nothing on ebay but overpriced stuff.  Would expect a huge drop once supply actually picks up on the new cards.  No one will even think of paying 500 on a 2070 used when a new 3070 kills it in performance, and costs the same (when its actually able to be purchased).
     
    So we are in a waiting period unfortunately 
  14. Agree
    bomerr reacted to DoctorNick in Should I swap to AMD?   
    The answer is yes. Get a Auros B550 Pro. You don't need a new ram kit but you may want 32gb. Get 3200mhz at the lowest. I would go for a Ryzen 7 5800X or 3700X if on a budget. 
    Edit: 3900x may also be a good choice as it's pretty cheap now.

    sell it and wait for rocket lake
     
    i sold the 8700k because it wasnt that much better than my 5820k a few years ago. 
  16. Agree
    bomerr reacted to WereCat in Is the 9900k still a good buy going into 2021?   
    I would not pay $299 for a 9900k now when new Ryzen is not even 2 weeks away from release. I don't think thats a good choice at all right now.
     
    I mean, it will work, it will give you great performance but its on an outdated platform with no upgrade path at all, no PCIe4, etc...
  17. Agree
    bomerr reacted to Carbonado in HELP! PC upgrade parts pick   
    Using even a 1660 non super model produces bottleneck:

     
     
    But again, if you look at the 1650 super:

     
     
    So, in anyway, you're choosing between two bottlenecks, neither will give you a full proper performance

    Do you have the AIO plugged into a case fan port? You want to make sure the pump is getting 12 V, many motherboards will reduce fan voltage for speed control on 3-pin fans.

    prime95, max fan settings. enough that i could overclock higher. noctua was severly limiting me. I'm pushing the h100i to the max too. I need a better cooling solution. Point is that air cooling is fine if you're in the right climate and/or cpu below 150W but water-cooling is definitely better, even AIO.

    get crucial 3200 or 3600mhz ram 4x8gb.

    bomerr reacted to Energycore in Should I buy a used 1080 ti in 2020?   
    That's good to know. A 1080 Ti will be perfect for 1080p@144fps considering this.
    I agree with your sentiment very much, but the market has not caught up. I'm having a hard time finding used 2080 Tis on ebay for under $800, or 1080 Tis for under $370.
     
    Honestly the $800 price tag is outrageous for the smallish performance difference, but that's what you get when Nvidia decides $1200 for the Ti card is an acceptable asking price.
  23. Agree
    bomerr reacted to tishous in Should I buy a used 1080 ti in 2020?   
    Honestly just saving up some money and building a completely new system might be your best bet. You can sell your 1060 for a bit and your other parts for some change. December-January time is probably going to be one of the best times to build a new PC.
  24. Agree
    bomerr reacted to Energycore in Should I buy a used 1080 ti in 2020?   
    I did and I couldn't be happier. I also bought a 4K monitor to play with, the 1080 Ti won't do Ultra in the most demanding games in 4k but I generally don't play those.
     
    If you can pick one up for around $350 you're getting yourself a great value.

    bomerr reacted to mahyar in Should I buy a used 1080 ti in 2020?   
    1080 ti is decent card even in 2020 if you can get it in a good price go for it
