  1. In all honesty the most intensive thing I would be doing is rendering in AutoCAD or REVIT, I sometimes do some video editing but it's very seldom now that I can just pay people on Fiverr.
  2. Well I think you are both right that I should just wait for the 4000 series processors to drop, I assume that the motherboard I picked would need to be changed up at the same time to make the best use of them? I really, really like the look of the Samsung drives, I will definitely switch those in instead. At these speeds is there a point to putting them into RAID?
  3. Budget (including currency): £7,500 (max.) Country: United Kingdom Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: nothing particularly intensive Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Well, the new RTX 3000 series cards have got my juices going. I was actually going to upgrade from my X470 build to X570 when the ASRock Aqua boards were launched but I couldn't get one, I didn't realise they were only 1,000 of the
  4. I can understand OP's reason for doing it: because they can. Simple as that. I am currently waiting until my Christmas bonus drops then I am going balls deep on a new £6,000 - £7,500 build. When I do my current PC will go to the first decent bid as it won't be used anymore. I got two years out of her and she still runs great, but I love my overpowered PCs for playing Crusader Kings II.
  5. Whats your take of these? https://www.technextday.co.uk/memory/64gb-16gbx4-gskill-trident-z-ddr4-pc428800-3600mhz-c17-f43600c17q64gtz?sort=p.price&order=DESC I’ve never used Newegg do they ship to UK without import taxes?
  6. When working from home: 1. Finite element analysis, 2. REVIT, 3. Maya, 4. Some video edit/render in Adobe Premiere. When having fun at home: 5. Max settings 4K (locked 60fps since my home TV I run on doesn’t go higher anyway) w/HDR gaming, I have an RTX 2080Ti but I am unimpressed with ray tracing so I don’t care about that anymore. Any recommendations for a 32GB kit? Budget I can do probably around £600 mark. I am really sorry I don’t know what this means. I could get 3433 MHz
  7. Hi all, I am going to be upgrading my current rig and I have a quick question: does moving to a 3900X with an X570 board (specifically ASRock X570 AQUA) allow me to overclock my current RAM higher? My current limitation was due to the motherboard/ cpu and not the RAM modules themselves as being used with only 2 sticks the frequency was easily 3733+ compared to the mere 3400 using 4 sticks. Current Spec: Gigabyte AORUS X470 Gaming 7 AMD Ryzen 2 2700X Gigabyte AORUS 32GB (4 x 8GB DIMMs) DDR4 3200 (OC to 3400) Upgrade Spec: AS
  8. Hi all, I came across a little quirk in one of my old benchmark runs on UserBenchmark: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/12659435 I noticed that the drive came in on the 39th percentile with the following: 2,494 MB/s sequential read, 2,255 MB/s sequential write. I was surprised because I thought my motherboard could support the full capability of the drive (3,500 read and 2,500 write). So I ran Samsungs' benchmarking software (Wizard) and got: 3,412 MB/s sequential read, 2,308 MB/s sequential write.
  9. Ok consider this post answered by myself because for some reason I started swapping round all four modules and powering back on and incredibly after 6 permutations the system post again and bios shows all 32GB so what the fuck actually happened ? these electrics and their angry pixies leave me in constant bewilderment ??
  10. Tried taking out all the ram sticks now and it didn’t change anything except give another error code “46” and wouldn’t turn off again using the power button, all that happened was the fans spun faster wtf
  11. Hi all, Was trying to tinker with ram timings in bios and the computer now fails to post giving me these error codes: dE, Ad, C2, 10, 01 and 60. Ive tried resetting the CMOS but it still doesn’t post, again giving the same codes. Anyone know how to fix this?
  12. OK running it in compatibility mode has entered a whole new world of problems. Constantly getting bootstrap error, .dat error, directories error, etc pop-ups now, tried taking compatibility mode off and still causes the same issues, even done clean installs again and still having the same issues. My god why does it have to be complicated getting an old game to work.
  13. How can you run compatibility mode with a game through steam? If I right click the desktop icon it doesn't give me the usual options.
  14. I have a problem with trying to run SWAT 3 from my steam library, so I titled this as a graphics problem, but I don't think it is the hardware which is an issue. When I first started up the game on my new PC it played in green instead of full range colour, I thought this was a resolution issue because the game was made to all the old PC monitor standard sizes. So I picked 1024 x 728 in the games resolution settings then exited and changed the resolution of my display output using the nvidia control panel to match this and it worked - it started playing the game in full colour but
