    Aggravated Salmon reacted to Radium_Angel in First build in years, dual xeon ofc (recommend me a gpu)   
    Adobe Premier will be happy with lots of cores. But yes, overall, as single CPUs increase in core count, the need for dual CPU systems fades, but half the fun of having a dual CPU/high core/thread count system, is finding way to use all that power, and simply not having another run of the mill ryzen 5 system, like everyone else has.
     
    And yes, I have a Ryzen 5 2600, just like everyone else. Frankly, given all the hype for the Ryzen CPUs since they've come out, I"m a little underwhelmed. But that's my experience, I'm sure yours is quite different.

    Aggravated Salmon got a reaction from Ben17 in How does Windows handle multi socket turbo boost.   
    Imagine a build with 4 CPUs (E7-8895 V2) (15 Core each 2.8Ghz) (Turbo Boost: 4/4/4/4/4/6/6/6/6/7/7/7/7/8/8)
    Lets say a workload utilizing 8 cores is put on the machine, will Windows 'use' 8 cores from CPU0, or split 2 cores per CPU?
    If 2 cores are split, will it be right to say that the machine will turbo to 3.6Ghz?

    Aggravated Salmon reacted to Origami Cactus in Old Motherboard Increasing Value?!   
    Dont look at the price things are sold at, because of scammers. You see plenty of listings on amazon for Note 9's at 50000$, but that doesnt make that it's price. It is still a 900$ phone.
    One way to counter this is to only look at the prices of units that actually sold. You can do it on ebay, but i dont know about amazon marketplace-

    Aggravated Salmon reacted to mariushm in USB 3 PCI-E card   
    Most if not all usb 3 controllers are designed to use a single pci-e lane ... so you'll have either 500 MB/s or ~ 970 MB/s theoretical connection to the chipset / cpu. However, due to arranging data in packets, you'll probably have 5-10% less of that. 
    At the same time, usb 3.0 theoretical bandwidth is 5 gbps, but the data is sent between devices using 8b/10b encoding, which means for every 8 bits of actual data, you have 2 bits of stuff, so only 80% of 5 gbps is actually theoretically possible, or 4 gbps. Then, the device has to arrange data in packets an there's some limitations about how many packets can be sent, how much size can each data packet be, and each packet has some overhead (framing, signaling etc) ... basically, be happy if you get over 400 MB/s.
    So a single pci-e lane is more or less more than enough for a single usb 3.0 used to the maximum.
     
    You'd get slower transfer speeds if you access both usb devices at same time.
     
    Doesn't matter if the actual edge connector on the card is x4 if the controller chip on the card can only use one pci-e lane anyway.

    Aggravated Salmon reacted to mariushm in How to identify VRM quality   
    Both seem to be using four phases for the processor and 2 phases for memory or somethig auxiliary to cpu.
    both have high side and low side mosfets instead of integrated power stages, and both have room for additional low side mosfets that aren't installed (probably option to replace existing higher end low side mosfets with a pair of cheaper low side mosfets if they ran out of stock on the high end mosfets, or they're suddenly no longer available)
     
    The boards are for the 5600 series, where processors are 0.75v .. 1.35v  so assuming 1.35v and 150w you're looking at around 110A ... that's around 4 x 30A per low side mosfet ... they're probably using 40-50A mosfets so it's all good, especially with the forced air cooling in a racked server. 
     
    Can't actually see the text on the mosfets to say exactly what they're using...
     
    these boards are meant to be installed in 2u or similar server cases that have rows of high speed fans pushing loads of air over the surface of the board and through the cpu heatsink fins

    based on the layout of your OP, and the other questions you've asked on this forum.. i'll just say this:
     
    stay away from that stuff. its okay if you have to ask questions to figure stuff out, but this is on a level where you'll essentially be proxy-ing all you're doing into questions because it is so far over your head that even a helicopter wont help you.

    Aggravated Salmon reacted to Spikkel in GTX 1070 severely under performing   
    I already found the problem, but I wanted to share this in case it might benefit someone else with a similar problem.
     
    System: MSI 1070 Gaming X (not overclocked, MSI gaming app, latest nVidia drivers installed), 8700K (not overclocked, with Coolermaster 612 tower cooler), Asus PrimeA motherboard with 64GB Corsair DDR4 @ 2666 with XMP enabled, 700W Thermaltake PSU. (Sytem used for Lightroom high volume photo editing and gaming)
     
    The symptoms: Low FPS (around 30 with lows reaching 17) in 1440p at Ultra settings, lowering settings to High and 1080p did not significantly improve results. 3D Mark FireStrike score of around 9000 (instead of around 17000). But it does fine in some other benchmarks. [A GTX 1070 should reach at least 70 FPS in most games at 1440p with settings at Ultra]
    EDIT: ... should reach at least 70 FPS in most games at 1440p with settings at High, please also see http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/msi-geforce-gtx-1070-gaming-x-review,1.html
     
    Things to consider (gathered from other threads with similar issues): Some GPU tweaking software with an FPS counter overlay (like the MSI gaming App) may hurt performance in some cases, installing/re-installing the latest drivers is usually step 1. Disabling V-sync (or switching to "adaptive" may help in some cases. Some games are just badly optimised and CPU-bound. BUT, most cases ended up being a CPU bottleneck of some sort. (1) Either the CPU is old/under-powered and pinned at a 100% load, (2) the CPU is overheating and thus thermal trotting, or (3) An unstable overclock is keeping the clock cycles low.
     
    In my case, the CPU was doing fine at 37 C, and very low load during gaming. With light tasks it wasn't boosting (keeping at 0.75 GHz), I also noticed very bad performance in Adobe Lightroom (photo editing) - thinking it was the GPU since with heavy loads (Prime95 and Cinebench) the CPU was reaching the rated 4.3 GHz - which is a good speed when all 6 cores are working hard. The Cinebench score was good as well...
     
    The culprit: Control Panel > Power Options > "Power saver" 
    Turns out, with this enabled, the the system cooling policy (under advanced settings) is set to "passive", which means that operating system slows the processor before increasing fan speed. Under heavy loads this is ignored and the CPU seems to be doing its job fine, but moderate to light loads are severely impeded.
     
    I hope this post help someone and saves them the 7 days it took me to figure this out.

    R7 4GHz eats anywhere between 100-130A depending on load and voltage and that is just around the limit of these weak shit VRMs.
