    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from ShrimpBrime in i9 10900k with MSI Z490-A PRO?   
    At minimum I'd suggest the Z490 TUF or Z490 Tomahawk, the MSI-A Pro doesn't have a terrific VRM and would likely thermal throttle when under high loads. The boards I suggested are only about 20-30 dollars more anyhow.

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Will RX 6800 XT gain more performance (mainly in RT) with better drivers?   
    I would expect close to a 5% performance increase over the next 6 months to a year as drivers mature, typical of AMD cards.

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from WereCat in ROG B550i VRM check for OC'd 5900X/5950X   
    Zen 3 actually has some of the best scaling out of all iterations of zen when it comes to all core overclocking, of course it depends on what it's being used for, but they have some decent headroom and can consistently hit 4.6-4.8 without too many issues.

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from Demonic Donut in Tomahawk x570 overkill?   
    Asus X570 TUF and X570 Aorus Elite are perfectly capable of handling a 5900x while being cheaper and having any feature that you could really want.
    You do lose PCIE lanes on B550, so if you wanted more than 1 NVME drive, you'd not be getting gen 4 speeds, and they'd be going slower from the chipset to the cpu.

    GTA 5 will be on 3 generations of consoles and has been out since 2013 with no real need to push it onto newer consoles since it's not gonna look or play any different, but rockstar will probably still charge $60, Witcher 3 is getting a fresh new coat of paint with new features all along with it being free to current owners, pretty big difference honestly.

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from OGLT in I5 9300h 92c hot?   
    Use either XTU or Throttlestop to undervolt your 9300h, a good UV that should work on pretty much any chip would be -130mv on the core, and -50mv on the cache. This will bring temps down by about 5-10c

    I vote for the 580, you can get a 580 8gb for 120 and sell the entire rig later when you're ready to upgrade since that motherboard has no upgrade path.

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from likeaboz2002 in Should I buy a Ryzen 5 1600 AF in 2020   
    The 3600 would probably be a much better investment for an extra 65 dollars overall in what I'm assuming will be close to a thousand dollar build.

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from Taintedmind in Ryzen 4000 Motherboards   
    I'd agree that b450 has some issues with ryzen 3000, I've worked with a couple systems myself and will be building another for my friend here in a couple days, but I've only ever encountered those problems on boards where the manufacturer didn't correctly tune with compatibility issues that could have been easily solved, for instance, both of the MAX boards that I've worked with have been stellar and had 0 issues, meanwhile asrock has been negligent in their BIOS implementations, leading to issues with pre 1903 windows versions. B550 seems to be moving away from these issues though, and manufacturers only have to deal with implementing a BIOS for 1 type of architecture compared to trying to support 2 fairly different architectures on one chipset.

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from Vishera in I recently inherited an old gaming rig, what can I do with it? intel i7 2600k   
    Updating the bios and making sure you have safe boot on should be your first steps, new cards are pretty finicky with old boards so you might have to look around for solutions.

    Many post 2015 games scale with ram speed and latency and a jump from 1600 cl11 to 2133 cl11 would be fairly significant along with a good core oc, especially so with frametimes

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from Bartholomew in CPU 100% usage while gaming   
    That is completely wrong for a multitude of reasons, there are not any extra draw calls for a CPU to handle when playing at a higher resolution, in fact there would be less dependence on the CPU at higher resolutions since the GPU has to do extra work, leaving framerates lower. His CPU is simply too low of a thread count for modern games.

    That kit is micron rev. e kit also know as micron e die in the ryzen dram calculator, set the speed to 3600 and the memory rank to 2 and use the fast profile, should work like a charm, especially since that is a high bin kit of rev. e

    You'll need to know what die revision is on your ram sticks, I could probably tell you if you link me the kit or just give me the XMP profile

    1.3v should be fine on the 3600, but you should stay there or below that voltage, if you can manage 4.3ghz at 1.3v the I'd go for it since it's a pretty sizable OC from stock, DRAM speed and latency is a bit more important on Zen cpus though, so I'd grab dram calculator and set a good profile for your ram.

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from Haro in What air cooler should I use for Ryzen 5 1600 overclocking?   
    You cannot control the FCLK on Zen 1, but depending on your chip quality 4.1ghz might be possible, my original r5 1600 could do 4.1ghz at 1.4v stable, meanwhile my zen+ 1600af can only do 4ghz at 1.36v, it's all dependent on the lottery.

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from Didarul Hossain Rafi in 4C/8T vs 6C/6T (ryzen 3rd gen/zen2)   
    I would go for the 3300x due to the better core configuration and similar multicore performance, the 3500x will be worse for gaming overall.

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from Haro in 5700xt not performing as expected   
    You can probably overclock the ram yourself without much trouble, go grab thaiphoon burner to check the memory IC of your ram

    Then use Ryzen DRAM calculator to get a good balance of speed and timings, this should increase performance in games by a significant margin

    TheDankKoosh got a reaction from ShrimpBrime in Which motherboard and cooler to get for 10700k?   
    The heat has to flow to be dissipated and the 9900k does better with an air cooler on a sanded die compared to stock.
     
    Pic related is a 9900k with a sanded die on a D15 doing P95 small ffts AVX on. This would be hitting TJmax pre sanding

     
    Looky there, a D15 doing perfectly fine at 260w power consumption, 2000rpm on a Noctua fan isn't too bad but if you wanted similar temperatures with less noise, the Le Grand Macho RT does the same temps at lower noise with a 1400rpm max speed on their fan. These results should be close to what the 10700k does at the same clocks and voltage. I have never said that a chip will produce less heat due to better heat transfer, but you ignore the fact that current CPUs heat transfer capabilities are what bottleneck coolers most of the time, I guarantee that if you made a top end air cooler direct die, it would be even better, but water cooling is superior for extremely power hungry chips, which this is getting close to. I have nothing left to debate with you since your mind will not be shifted and you will not look at evidence objectively.

    Only thing about the Aorus Master boards is that, especially on x570, they are pretty overkill for even running maxed out chips which is why I'd suggest the tomahawk boards for balance of feature set, VRM, and price.
