  1. I bought the R7 5800x for the higher IPC to run my modded/building games. My i9 10900k can run these games smoothly using TVB or a 5.2/5.3ghz overclock. The 5800x can do it stock. Since the i9 11900k has about the same IPC as a 5800x it will perform about the same with these types of games. If it was priced even close to a 5800x I would have consider it. I use more than one computer. For doing this(forums) I use my i9 9900k with a 1080 ti. For vanilla games I use the i9 10900k using TVB and 2080 ti. The 5800x will run games like Space Engineers that have so much content added that they
  2. It depends on the type of games you play weather to go with 10 or 11 gen. With vanilla AAA games they will run about the same. The i7 11700k has much higher IPC and that gives it an advantage in building and modded games. So with it you would be able to add more content to games like Space Engineers before it became a stuttering mess. With MSFS you could add more DLCs/payed mods before it became unplayable. If you don't play or don't plan to play these types of games don't bother with 11th gen. As for SSDs I use Crucial P1s. I have a Samsung 970 EVO
  3. I personally would not use a 240mm AIO on an 8 core CPU. I would use one on a 6 core. Non of my modern CPUs are overclocked but all of my older CPUs are so I keep that in mind when I do a build.
  4. I have a 360mm AIO on my 5800X and it does run cool. The only reason I did not put a big air cooler like the Noctua nh-d15 is that the cases I use are designed for AIOs so it makes sense to use them. Then you need a board with bios flashback like I did. I don't see a flashback button on the Asus Prime but the TUF Gaming X570-PRO and the Strix X570-E have it.
  5. You would need an older Ryzen CPU to boot so you can flash the bios to run the 5000 CPU. When it comes to heat it is all about motherboard choice. Here are two videos I watched before buying.
  6. Intel CPUs have performances plateaus and with the this one it is 5ghz. So that is where to start. I use 1.344v and that is good for up to 5.1ghz on my i7 8086ks. The next plateau is at around 5.3ghz. My all core 5ghz Intels compete very well against my R7 5800X CPU so it is the way to go.
  7. Most of the popular Youtubers ran the i9 11900k without using all the boosts so their "out of the box" numbers are a bit pointless to me. Here is one channel that used all of them. The i9 11900k is way too expensive and since the i9 10900k exists at the same price as the R7 5800x. Those are the best gaming CPUs now. I am keeping my i9 10900k. When testing my i9 10900k at stock using TVB against my R7 5800X stock the i9 wins at 1440p and 4k usually by 6 frames. All the R7s wins are at 1080p. Since I am not a 1080p gamer if I had to keep one it would
  8. Don't get it if you don't have an older Ryzen CPU. I did not have an older Ryzen so I had to buy a motherboard with a bios flashback feature. Also R7 5800x CPUs are a bit hot so a beefier VRM is a good idea.
  9. MCE is hot especially on a budget board. All my Intel 6 cores are manually overclocked to their boost clock and idle in the low 30s using NH-D15s. They run about 4c hotter using MCE and produce less frames.
  10. I have a 360mm AIO on my R7 5800X and it idles in the low 30s but any activity shoots it up to high 40s/low 50s. Games like SOTTR run in the 50s so super cool. By contrast my i9 10900k is always in the 30s unless it is playing games or running benches. So any random glance of the temps of these CPUs in idle, the Ryzen appears hotter but under load it is almost 10c cooler.
  11. I built a R7 5800x computer last week for the OLED TV I have in the Livingroom. It is a bit toasty stock compared to my i9 9900k but at 1080p it usually is pumping out 10 to 15 more frames. I use a 360mm AIO on it but it would do fine on a NH-D15 or Dark Rock Pro. If you want cooler go with less cores like the R5 5600X or i5 11600k. My Intel and AMD 8 core CPUs need about the same amount of cooling so a NH-D15 is minimal for me.
  12. The last test I did with AA was with Fallout 4 in 4k. There are parts of the image that I like with no AA and the are parts that I like with TAA. Sort of a tossup. Next time Dragon Quest XI is on sale I will pick it up. You have got me curious.
  13. Going from 1080p to 4k. In 2014 LTT did a video on the 28" 4k Samsung monitor. After watching it I went down to the local Tiger Direct store to see one in person and they actually had a 4k demo running on one. The same demo was running on a 1080p monitor and it was a night and day comparison. They wanted $600 and so I checked out Best Buy and they had it for $500 so I got one. At the time I had a GTX 970 and it struggled even at 1440p. It was not until I got a GTX 980 ti in 2015 that I really started to enjoy 4k gaming and it was not long before I got another 980 ti for SLI. 4K
  14. It will burn-in in about 5000 hours. Chrome burn-in on mine doing what we are doing now. Now I use a 49" LG NanoCell 85(120hz HDMI 2.1) for general computing and the OLEDs game and do TV.
  15. If it is for gaming it depends on the resolution you play at. I have a R7 5800X and a i9 10900k. The R7 pulls away at 1080p, trades blows at 1440p and produces the same frames at 4k. The R7 is as smooth as my i9 9900k but the i9 10 core is smoother than both of them. So for you it is the i9 boosts vs the R9s cores. I think they will do about the same unless you are a 1080p gamer.
  16. I think it is the type of games you play will dictate how much ram you need. I got low memory messages with 8gbs playing my building games in 2015 so that is when I went with 16. Now I have 32gbs since it is cheap. In 2018 it was double what it is now and it could go up again.
  17. I think it is better to wait a year to see if 100 to 120hz versions come out if you mainly want to play games. I bought a 3440 X 1440 60hz monitor in 2015. If I would have waited a year it would have been 100hz and I probably still be using it. I bought a 3840 X 1600 75hz monitor in 2019. If I would have waited a year it would have been 144hz. Again I would still be using it. I will eventually get this panel but I need more Hz. If you want one for productivity get either one. My 38" LG is now used my my Son for video editing and it is a big success. Fo
  18. I use 55" OLEDs as monitors with RTX 2080 tis and it can do 1440p 120hz now. The OLEDs with 20 series cards do 8bpc at 4k and 1440p. 12bpc at 1080p. They don't do 10bpc with any setting. OLEDs also burn in if used as monitors. When only used for games they last much longer but what I am doing now I would not do on an OLED at all. I learned the hard way. I also use a GTX 1080 ti on a LG 49" NanoCell that is 120hz and has HDMI 2.1. At 4k in most AAA games it is only good for 60fps. The 2080 tis do about 80. Games that need more frames look fine at 1440p on th
  19. Return it if you can. My build was postpones since I originally bought a Crosshair Hero VIII but it was DOA. I bought it from BestBuy and returned it. The Crosshair Heros were out of stock so I went with an Aorus Master from Amazon. I only buy motherboards from stores with easy returns since half the ones I buy now don't work.
  20. I built a R7 computer using a Aorus Master last Friday and the chip set fan did not make a sound. I also rested my finger on the chip set fan housing while it was running since my 3 slot 2080 ti would be resting on it and it did not have a change in sound. Hope this helps.
  21. I only stared doing screen shots in 2000 with MS Flight Sim 2000. That is when I started using forums. Here is a screen shot of a screen shot. .
  22. I use EVGA FTW3 Ultra 2080 tis and my usual 24/7 overclock is +117(2040mhz) but if I use RT in games over +110 crashes(2010mhz). I can do + 175(2145mhz) in some benches but not even close in RT games. My EVGA XC 2080 tis used + 130 24/7 and + 200 benching but still had to use +110 in RT games.
  23. I went with the "B" version of the LG OLED at $300 cheaper than the "Cs". I have a LG NanoCell 85(49") and it does not compare to an OLED. I does make a great gaming monitor since it is 120hz and has HDMI 2.1.
