  1. i disagree i dont think it looks pretty good. seeing how a xx80ti class card these days apparently is well over 1000 bucks. heck even a 1000 bucks would be too much. i thought the same with the 2080ti. the 1080ti was very good value at its MSRP. you cant tell me inflation + pricing of parts (without a pandemic) are the cause of such a price hike. and its even more funny seeing how the next generation aka the 4000 series will no doubt have a 4070ti/super as well that no doubt keeps up or even beats the current now 3080ti and that for around 550 making this (3080ti) card even more of a
  2. because thats what people get wrong. you dont make your choice when you already own a phone. you make this choice when you want to buy a phone. thats what people seem to get wrong here. you as a consumer have the choice to buy whatever phone you want. but you also as a consumer then decide if you want a heavily secured locked down phone or not. if yes you buy apple if not you buy any of the other phones out there. The choice you make is before you have a product. not after. you take the consequences of your purchase when you purchase it. not after. you buy a phone with the fea
  3. aye but it doesnt matter what they can do. They can probably make one of the safest secured systems out there. oh wait.. they already did. And now people want to endanger that safety just because they want to download some shady apps? you as a consumer do have a choice. there are many phones out there that you can buy. not just from apple and not just from samsung. if you as a consumer don't want a phone that is locked down so heavily with security than you just get another brand. Its literally that easy. i for that reason own a samsung phone. But many like apple because it's so sec
  4. nice cant wait to enable this for my 2070 super oh no i forgot they dont care about the consumer so why make us happy with free performance for cards we do have
  5. no. wait. the next generation in 1 and a half years orso will stomp the 3080 even to the ground. just. wait.
  6. well apparently people have said that ocing ryzen 3000 at 1.35 or even anything above 1.3 is bad. and you have to do an manual or overrite mode. that lets you do it. yours should be able to do 4.3 at 1.2v no problem try that that really cuts down the temps and well still doesnt destroy your performance completely. but to reply to your message i have mine running with pbo now. with basically its limits set to the max and it is idling around 49-55c so yeah with a shitty cooler just like mine it is normal. while having it on the 4.3 at 1.2v it idles around 35-40c so that
  7. according to this mine is around 1.194v which is rediculously low. a cpu cant provide good performance at such a level. lmao. i still dont believe that voltage bs. if amd says its fine. if even in that big text you quoted they say that 50% is also fine with more then well what do we believe. i bought this chip cause its the best bin. thus probably also capeable of handling way more voltage than a normal 3700x or 3800x.
  8. that shit makes no sense, so what most say is that some will have this issue others will not, but it all depends on silicone. MY chip is a 3800XT those XT chips are the best of the best binned chips. if i check hwinfo it says that the max fit voltage is right around 1.29v under max cinebench r20 load. i call bs on that tho. because the vcore as they also wrote above was 1.325v out of the box like this now. which would mean that the scientists at AMD that actually make these processors have no idea what they are doing with the voltages they said. i call bs on that.
  9. i find that difficult to believe. amd says that their chips can handle voltages perfectly fine around 1.4v. so there most be more to that. besides i tried to see what i can do at 4500 and it cant run cinebench r20 at anything below 1.35v at that speed. it doesnt crash the pc. just cinebench, but at 1.35 its perfectly fine. unless there is a mountain of data supporting that you shouldnt run a ryzen 3000 at anything higher than 1.3 i wont believe it. also, mine didnt. mine jumped higher. and it has a clock of around 4.150 then all core. but it reaches 88c and with this oc o
  10. the 5900x is a way beter buy than the 5800x. so do that. 450 for 8 cores is too much lol. i got my 3800xt for 340 which i was hoping the 5700x would be for but they didnt show that sooo i skipped. and got a 3000 model.
  11. i dont see why that is high? at stock it well surpasses that. so its an undervolt if you take that into account. der8auer also overclocks his ryzen processors like so. like this video. yeah its a bit old but he has his 3800x at 4.4 on 1.37v so my 3800xt being at 4.5 at 1.35 is not bad at all the whole voltage thing is not something you should worry about as long as your not doing 1.45v orso
  12. its not exactly best but with a measly 30 euro cooler i got my 3800xt currently at 4.5 on 1.35v it can go higher ofc but not with this cooler no doubt it can do 4.7 all core with good cooling.
  13. mine idles at 38-50c with a hyper 212 black edition and a very good airflow case. mine is also overclocked albe its at 1.35v so not very high. i suggest you take a look if your room temperature is okay. and if your cpu is indeed seeing high voltage spikes. mine did too at stock. i highly suggest overclocking it. even to something like i overclocked mine to on all cores which is 4.5 it can go higher of course but my cooling is worse than yours. keep that in mind. just set 4.5 all core on 1.35v in the bios. boot up and see the temps. if they are simular or better than mine then you k
  14. I suggest overclocking. Ryzen 3000 uses high voltages for some reason. Lowering that and keeping an overclock does decrease thermals. My 3800XT ran about 88 degrees when under cinebench r20 load while stock. I managed to overclock it to 4500 at 1.35v and under cinebench it now gets around 83c max but performs better multi and single. I am using a hyper 212 black which is a bit better than the standard hyper 212. And under gaming load it gets between 60-70 which is fine. I can of course push it way further due to it being a silicone lottery chip because all XT ryzen 3
  15. Its been known that overclocking with ryzen master is not so weird to the system. if I would tried a overclock on my old 2600x in ryzen master that I know would crash if I tried it via the bios it simply works for some reason. However it isnt extremely stable. So I dont advice in using it.
  16. quick update for me. have now installed my new 3800xt on the hyper 212 black edition with nano grease termal paste. it maxes out around 80c with full max cinebench load. however it then does has a all core boost of 4.3 even at 80 degrees lol.. during gaming it sits around 4.5 4.6 4.7 core boosts with temps around 58-62c so all in all.. just amazed.
  17. i decided to wait till the whole far cry 6 deal was going so i bought it now. will be testing and seeing it tomorrow will reply with an update then. the 2600x at 1.4v with 4.1 overclock takes i think 125w if i see it correctly and gets around 74c at a max cinebench run. do keep in mind tho that the thermal paste is pretty old on it already and well it is running at 4.1 if i can get the 3800xt to run at lower voltages and taking the improvements they mad from ryzen 2000 to ryzen 3000 i think it should be okay but i will know it for sure tomorrow! oh ps it runs around 61-63 degr
  18. i dont think. i and others know it will be better. it will perform better in games. thats a fact. probably on par/around the i5 10600k but that we have to see still. and you can but you need a bios update and there for keep in mind you download that first and update your bios before you swap cpu's if you dont have another available pc to download it from. also watch this video: to choose the correct board for you. that performs the best.
  19. stock coolers are only there to make the cpu run and so you can go on your newly build pc to buy an actual better cooler. and even the hyper 212 black for like 30 bucks like mine will do a fine job. but if you work with your pc for those use cases you may want to get the Noctua NH-U12S chromax.black. black edition cause.. way better looking, and it will do even better than the hyper 212 black not by much but good enough
  20. because its not as good performing in those tasks like the 3600 is. however you may want to look at current pricing of the 3600x and 3600xt as well because in some cases they are only 10-20 more than the 3600 which in my opinion would be worth it for the extra performance. the 2700x can be gotten for cheap now yes. and 8 cores will help a lot in daily work but 6 cores for now is still fine for that too. some games do take advantage of more cores. like the new upcoming cyberpunk 2077 that you are probably wanting to play however. then a 3700x would be better cause the 2000 series ryzen
  21. true for the 3900xt it is a bit expensive, here the 3800xt is about 30 ish more than the 3700x and 11 more than the 3800x which isnt so bad if you want the best and want to keep your cpu till am5 and ddr5 later will become more cheaper. also the 3600xt is 20 bucks more than the regular 3600 so also not a bad deal. same performance in most cases and these cases would be.. yours. in gaming its either same. or okay or pretty decent dependent on which game and resolution. so in your case it would be better to go for the 5900x like others suggested. unlike the 5800x the
  22. you uh gotta tag him with quoting his message But i have about the same setup as you. yes the 2600x does hold back the 2070 super. not by much but still like 10-20 fps compared to a 3700x in most cases. of course there are outliners that shoot higher buut generally it isnt so bad. however in some games like the outer worlds i have seen low fps, and some other games too. do keep in mind if you get a ryzen 5000 cpu you will have to either flash your bios of your mobo with a bios that will never be un do able. aka ruining resale value of it after you are done. But in general. i would say t
  23. no he is correct. the zen 3 architecture is pretty good. and the 5800x or later 5700x are equal/beating the i7 10700k which is at least in most titles 20-30 fps ahead. which is a lot more than your "3-8". now this is not much with a 3080 since.. well you kinda already are getting a lot of frames. and at 4k it wont matter too much. but still it can be a big difference at resolutions below it. its certainly worth it if you build your system new. however.. i think that you should.. wait. 3700x is still decent. wait a year of 3 and upgrade to the am5 socket. with those cpu's.
  24. How about ctr with it. Since ctr does oc with lower voltages in most cases. Would it then not be cooled enough by the 212 black edition?
  25. Ohh okay that's good to know. so it will probably be a bit hotter but cooler when gaming I assume? So that's good news!
