    ch3w2oy got a reaction from F.E.A.R. in What would you rather get - 3700X/RX 5700 XT or 9700K/2070 Super?   
    3700X + 5700XT.. 
     
    I had a 9700K and 2080 and I like my 3800X and Radeon VII build more.. I also like AMD Radeon settings A LOT more than Nvidias.. 
     
    I see absolutely no point in buying Intel right now unless you need iGPU or have a specific software that benefits from Intel CPUs..

    ch3w2oy reacted to Kc7vwc in are amd gpu's drivers still improving olders cards?   
    Been using an R9 390 & GTX 970 for the last 3 years. Recently got an RTX 2060 - I'll take AMD's drivers & software any day. Nvidia's control panel hasn't updated since Windows NT & GFE is horribly limited compared to ReLive. Not to mention I'm forced to download the DCH drivers which don't even come with a control panel and I have to get it from the Microsoft store of all places. 
    Neither is perfect; but right now my wallet is voting AMD.

    ch3w2oy got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Best GPU for 240 hz   
    I would go Vega 56/64 or RTX 2060, personally.. The RX 580 is the absolute minimum I would get for 144hz..

    ch3w2oy got a reaction from Zando Bob in THICC 5700 xt has been released   
    Edits registry to increase power/frequency limits imposed by AMD.. For instance I think the most power you can add to stock is +20, after PPT (power play tables) you can +99 power limit. I also don't think you can go to 1300MHz on the memory without it..
     
    I used this one (scroll down until you see quoted text below).. Hellm I think created these ones and they work very well..

    My R7 could run 2100MHz+ core and 1300MHz memory playing Apex and CSGO.. I didn't really test many games but I never saw a problem unless I dropped voltage too low.. I used a Bykski waterblock and power play tables on mine..

    Yea, this matter is quite game title specific. Right now I'm mostly playing modded Skyrim SE and Fallout 4, waiting for Borderlands 3 and Cyberpunk 2077. There's some Forza, Far Cry and Battlefield in the mix. I wish I could know what FPS I'll get in the games yet to release, but then again - don't we all? Same matter with "legacy" titles since there are no benchmarks for old games. Guess I'll save 100 bucks then and get the RX 5700 XT and 3700X.
     
    The question is pretty much solved, but if anyone want's to jump in with their opinion, you're welcome to do so!

    ch3w2oy reacted to Mister Woof in Why intel makes locked multiplier CPUs?   
    As opposed to selling unlocked CPUs and telling everyone they can get absurdly unrealistic frequencies and yet, they can't overclock at all, barely ever even hitting their advertised boost clocks? Or charge their customers $50 for an "x" at the end of the product code that does practically nothing?
     
    Intel sells locked CPUs because there's a market for them, and despite what you may believe, the market share for consumers that overclock is abysmally small.
     
    Intel wants to make money, no less than AMD. This is why 3600s, 3700s, etc. exist..... So they can profit from defective parts.
     
    It's not a problem at all, any more than Intel's locked CPUs.
     
    AMD is a great alternative, and I own many of their products, but the fanboy echo chamber that always develops here practically hailing them as the Lord Jesus Christ himself gets old fast.
     
    Don't let bias cloud your objectivity.
     
    Find the product that fits your needs and buy the best you can afford, regardless of who made it.

    ch3w2oy reacted to porina in 2700X or 3600 better for entry level workstation?   
    It depends very much on the workload. 3600 has much faster AVX units, so if the software uses that, it could be a LOT faster on the 3600 than 2700X. Personally I'd take the 3600 over the 2700X as there so many improvements in it.

    ch3w2oy reacted to Dubba in Ryzen 7 3800x Temp/voltage issues   
    I have the same motherboard and it is indeed providing a bit more voltage than we'd like. New BIOS version hopefully arrives this month with a fix for that.
    Currently the BIOS in this motherboard is limiting memory clocking too. I was able to clock my RAM to 3200MHz and above that the FCLK stopped following, I wasn't able to clock FCLK up even manually without getting a no-post situation. So that's a limit atm. Waiting for the new BIOS for that too.
    However, that is kinda what to expect right now. What are you using to monitor temps? I guess you already know that some programs can stop the CPU from going idle.
    Chipset driver update helped me to get more regular idling at 0.7-0.9V with Ryzen Balanced power plan.
     
    The clocks and voltages on Zen2 change extremely fast and no monitoring software at this time will show you a graph that fast. When you move a mouse or open a program, or just run anything single-threaded, you will observe high voltages. But that voltage of 1.4-1.5V is only applied to a single core and that single core will be showing power usages up to 40W (on 3700X at least), and because that kind of power is going to a single tiny core in the corner of the CPU, we see these hefty spikes in temperatures. Changing a cooler won't help dissipate this kinds of bursts of heat output.
     
    When running multi-threaded, the cores will not be getting all that available power, instead the power budget is spread accross all the cores and we'll see a bit less volts and lower clocks. But temps will be higher just because there are more cores in that tiny corner using the power available, which in total is more than a single core can use.
     
    That being said, 95C is a lot more than what's expected. I get around 84C max in synthetic stuff, a lot less in games. Is your cooler making proper contact and does it fit over the corner where the CPU cores are?

    ch3w2oy reacted to paulmohr in My Intel to AMD swap   
    I would go with the new 3600 for less money. In my opinion the 2700 or 2700x are not really viable options for the price anymore. Also some of the newer air coolers are very quiet as well if that is your only reason for going with water cooling.

    No need for fanboyism.
     
    I've noticed that you love writing short paragraphs to answer people's questions, but 90% of your replies mean absolutely nothing. You have no idea what you're talking about. You quoted someone who was actually trying to answer the OP's question (and was doing a good job at it) and you said some random crap that makes no sense. Rather than commenting on every single thread you see, why not comment on the ones that you actually know something about (basically none of them). Stop stating your opinion as if it's a fact (what's the i10 series?!). I know that this thread requires people to give their opinion(s), but at least back it up with something. Thanks.

    ch3w2oy got a reaction from WereCat in Planning to overclock my Ryzen 3900x to 4.2 GHz, but need clarification on a certain BIOS option first.   
    Overclocking the 3900X to 4.2, IMO, is pointless and may only see improved results during benchmarks but the opposite in real life tasks.

    ch3w2oy got a reaction from ProtoflareX in Planning to overclock my Ryzen 3900x to 4.2 GHz, but need clarification on a certain BIOS option first.   
    My 3800X boosts to 4.4GHz while playing Apex.. For gaming, I would not use a manual OC.. I mean I can OC manually for 4.4 but that's as high as I can currently go and then I lose my boosting to 4.5GHz for lighter tasks.. Trade off isn't worth it I don't think..
     
    I haven't really looked at benchmarks lately but I'm pretty sure you should  be able to boost higher than 4.2 while gaming..

    ch3w2oy reacted to .Apex. in New build; i5 3570k replacement for video editing + gaming   
    XMP is very well known at this point so it's easy to forget to recommend, XMP is an overclock memory profile, basically any RAM speed above 2133mhz is considered an overclock, and when you buy a 3200mhz RAM stick, you're guaranteed an overclock profile that is set to 3200mhz which is called XMP, that's all

    I don't think there's anything else you have to change, and it's not necessary to enable XMP, but you won't get the RAM performance you paid for, so it's literally plug and play
     
    Don't know what video you're talking about but 3200mhz is the same price as 3000mhz, so there's no reason not to go for it, and Ryzen does benefit from memory speed a lot more than Intel CPU's, though Intel CPU's still benefit from it
     
     
    For Intel it's completely gone, you could consider that DMI replaced it, but it doesn't have the same functions as FSB so it's not technically "replaced" since it's not related to RAM speed at all anymore, also your 3570K doesn't even have FSB, it's using DMI

    But as for AMD, they now have the Infinity Fabric, it's nothing to worry about, but to clarify the Infinity Fabric will run at 1:1 ratio up to 3600mhz (RAM speed), anything above that will cause performance issues

    ch3w2oy reacted to .Apex. in New build; i5 3570k replacement for video editing + gaming   
    Yes that's 3000 Series
     
    It's nothing you have to enable and it's set automatically, when you buy a 3200mhz stick, the Infinity Fabric will be set automatically to 1600mhz (which is the real clock of a 3200mhz stick btw), and that means they're both running at 1:1 ratio, up to 3600mhz, so don't go beyond that

    Ryzen 1st Gen used to be very picky with RAM, and Ryzen 2nd Gen improved that a lot, but 3rd Gen has no problems at all from what i've heard, it won't be worse than 2nd Gen that's for sure

    ch3w2oy reacted to brob in 9900k or 3900x with a RTX 2080 Ti?   
    I9-9900K still does a touch better in most gaming titles. Ryzen 9 3900X blows the i9-9900K out of the water in highly threaded workflows. So it comes down to how the system is being used.

    ch3w2oy got a reaction from TheNaitsyrk in X570 Aorus Master VS Asus X570 Boards   
    People complain about the Gigabyte BIOS but I didn't mind it one bit for Z390 Aorus Ultra or my X470 Gaming 7.. 
     
    The X570 VIII Hero has double things in there as well so not sure why only  Gigabyte gets shit for having things listed more than once in their BIOS..
     
    My MEG ACE has a super simple BIOS and I like it better than both Asus and Gigabytes.. BIOS shouldn't really be a deciding factor anyway as long as they do what you need.. Only one I haven't had the pleasure of experiencing is Asrocks but that's only because they don't how to place a USB C header or use two addressable headers for RGB (stupid).. 
     
    After getting the X570 Hero (non-wifi) I regret I didn't just get the Strix-E.. Like Jurrunio said above, the Strix will be perfectly fine and just as good as the rest when it comes to performance.. The RGB on the Hero sucks anyway.

    Since my original reply was deleted let me show you how Google works.. Type 3700X vs 9900K in the search bar and then please evaluate your argument. Just because knowledgeable people don't use it as their primary source for benchmarks, doesn't make it irrelevant for newcomers and those less informed..
     
    I guess there's a chance I'm the only person in the world that uses it but the thousands of new benches on there everyday tell another story.. 
     
    It's Interesting that you think that..
