    Derrk reacted to Fasauceome in Just got my new graphics card, but low performance disappoint me   
    an i7-4770 can run DDR3 2400 and up, going to DDR4 2133 is a downgrade

    Derrk reacted to dizmo in advice on selling GPU?   
    Just keep using the card for now. It's not going to lose the value of a new GPU worth of value in a few months time. People already know the next gen is coming, it's not like it's going to be a surprise.

    no matter what we are at a loss right now I think.
    I am going to TRY <<< HEAVY EMPHASIS to upgrade to a 30 Series as well and sell off my 5700xt (Which is actually a Surprisingly Punchy Card). But I do NOT Expect to get what I paid for it, whatever I say, I'll sell it for $150 to a kid who needs it, 2020's been hard and people deserve it.

    I'm just gonna wait till I Have a new GPU in my hands before I do anything, as its speculated that it will be harder than hell to actually get one.

    you can try going to slower and slower settings until you start seeing "CPU Overloaded!", then you should step back 1 or 2 settings
     
    remember to set the bitrate right too, depending on which service you use

    if you have nvidia GPU, use NVENC
    else, use software x264
    given you have a 4c/8t CPU, you could try using software x264 at veryfast/superfast preset, and try streaming at 720p 30fps, see if you get any stutters

     
    but you have to be able to run your games/application well to begin with.

    Derrk reacted to Mateyyy in Why Nvidia's 30 series is not going to be 2x faster then the 20 series   
    And this is where I stopped reading.
     
    On a more serious note, Digital Foundry's video of the 3080 also covered non-DXR performance in a couple of titles. The improvement over a 2080 was not "8%".

    Derrk reacted to Haro in Upgrade to 3070?   
    Wait for ampere to actually come out and then check performance and how the 2600x holds up with a 3070, it will probably struggle a bit, but at higher resolutions like 1440/ 4k, it shouldn't be too bad, but what psu do you have? 
    and again, wait for ampere to actually release and check how the 3070 performs.

    Derrk got a reaction from Ben17 in Is there a problem with the temperature?   
    seems alright. Your case has good ventilation so you should expect good airflow. If you want to see your max temps, you should stress test with something more intensive like aida64

    Derrk reacted to CircleTech in How do i make a static free work station?   
    If you are trying to build a computer, just touch something metal connected to the earth. A PSU as you suggested works because it is plugged into the wall which is connected to earth. Beyond that, you don't have to worry too much about static electricity. I built a computer on my bed at one point. Pc parts tend to be less static sensetive than people think.

    Derrk got a reaction from reach3r in Can AMD Beat the ULTIMATE Intel Gaming PC?   
    I had a problem with this video, being the top 2080ti on the AMD system had no breathing room. When you guys test games that primarily utilize 1 gpu, of course the gpu that can breathe is going to win. In most games tested, its not surprising Intel won, but you created a new variable by cutting airflow on the test bench system

    Temperatures + boost clocks were tested before hand to ensure they were fine on both systems.
     
    The AMD test bench didn't have any issues (never went above 70c on the top GPU, and hit the exact same boost clocks) as it was on an open air bench, without the closed environment of a case.

    GamersNexus recently did some real testing with real methodology (as GN does), and yeah, there actually is a performance difference between air and water

    Derrk reacted to Dash Lambda in Can AMD Beat the ULTIMATE Intel Gaming PC?   
    It's a $175 cooler according to Newegg. To my knowledge, there aren't very many AIOs that cost more than that -most good ones are in the $100-$150 range. So they spent more to go with that cooler over an AIO.
     
    Now, if they had just went with a normal NH-D15 then sure it would cost less, but an extra $20-30 for a great AIO kind of pales in comparison to thirty two terabytes of storage.
     
    This video was filled with strange decisions.

    How do you feel about DIY projects?
     
    Because right now is not a great time to be buying desks, since IKEA is closed. Otherwise they have some great legs and desk tops to use.
     
    Or you can just go to your local hardware store, pick up a countertop or something like that and prop it on legs that you either find at the hardware store or make yourself, with 2x4 or 4x4.

    Derrk got a reaction from ZagTech in Could use some advice for I9-X series with 2x GPU - Water Cooler   
    one thing to keep in mind for a system with this much watercooling is radiator support. If you're going to cool 2 gpus, cpu, and mobo, i'd suggest 2x360mm rads (which probably wouldn't fit your size requirements) or 3x240mm rads. one case that comes to mind is thermaltake core v21 which could fit 2 gpus and 3 240mm rads

    A Ryzen R7 3700X and B450 Motherboard like the MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX would be much cheaper. I doesn't look like NZXT offer Ryzen though, so you might have to look at a different retailer. 
     
    The Samsung SSD's are good, but you can get the same performance for less. The HP EX920 1TB for example is $129.94 on pcpartpicker compared to $219.99 for the 1TB EVO.
