    hollyh88 got a reaction from HMark9 in Gigabyte 2070 Super Gaming OC 3X temperature   
    i have the same card. overclocked by a basic 80+ on the core and 450 on the memory, it gets at most around 65-67c when gaming. and under a stress test maybe around 72 max. on very hot(30c ambient room temp) days around 77c on stress and 72 when gaming. 
    your temps are PERFECTLY fine. it wont throttle until it hits 88 degrees if you slide the slider in msi afterburner all the way to the right. and i believe 83 without doing that. so dont worry.

    temps are often different dependend on the case, mine has 4 intake fans 1 fan at the back its keeping everything perfectly cool. 

    here is the temps directly after a benchmark pass with heaven. do keep in mind that i altered my fan curve to be a bit more extreme since its summer and sometimes rediculously hot here in the netherlands  do the same for your card. monitor it and then screenshot the overlay just before the run is done. screenshot using shift + windows key + s.

    hollyh88 reacted to minibois in So how would I power this GPU exactly?   
    Looks like the original owner desoldered the power pins and just soldered in some males headers in its place.
    You're gonna have to desolder in some new power headers.
    That would be a hard pass from me personally.
     
    Plus you can get working GTX 1070 cards for about 190-230 USD too.

    these games arent happy with 2 core and 4 threads. a 4 core cpu would do better, seems like you want to play newer titles then i would suggest seeing an cpu upgrade. 2600 is running pretty cheap these days. and will help your performance a lot  

    also, what motherboard do you have?

    its your cpu. these games like more cores and threads. thus your performance will suck. best fix if you really like to play those games? play on 720p. or get a newer cpu. it sucks but thats the way it is.

    hollyh88 got a reaction from GamerBlake in How risky is it for a novice to apply new thermal paste to a GPU?   
    play your game where the gpu gets the hottest during the hottest time during the day and then play it again in the evening after letting it cool down. see if the temps like many have said is a factor. it can also just be the cooler. you are after all having a 2080ti. more powerful thus runs hotter.

    my old evga 1070 SC  that i had since launch of it also never needed a cooling paste change. and i played heavily on it. so like many said i doubt a 1 year old card would need it. 

    an old fix i used to do though and sometimes still do if its like 33 degrees get yourself an airco and point it with airflow also to your pc.  more cooling=lower temps. it works pretty darn good. just a bit annoying but ey nothing headsets cant fix right?

    hollyh88 reacted to porina in DDR5 spec finalised   
    Source: https://www.anandtech.com/show/15912/ddr5-specification-released-setting-the-stage-for-ddr56400-and-beyond
     
    Summary
    The DDR5 specification has now been finalised, and allows actual products to be created. Up to now, the companies involved with the standard would be working with draft versions. Officially supported speeds increases from DDR4's maximum of 3200 to DDR5's starting speed of 4800, going up to an expected maximum of 6400. DDR4 modules above 3200 are available now, but these are not a standard defined speed. Similarly we would expect high speed kits of DDR5 to appear above 6400 at some point. 
     
    Some changes of note going from DDR4 to DDR5:
    Nominal voltage is lowered from 1.2V to 1.1V, so potentially reducing power slightly. Voltage regulation will be included on module, and no longer the responsibility of the motherboard. This will apparently help with high capacity motherboards, in that the regulation circuitry it now included as needed with the module, and not loaded up front on the motherboard at design. Implicitly, mobos might be cheaper, but modules more expensive. Modules will have dual 32-bit channels, compared to the current single 64-bit channel. While the extra channel wont directly help with maximum bandwidth, combined with other changes internally to the ram, it may allow for better response when accessing the module. There is die level ECC. This isn't the same as module-wide ECC as we know it. The concern is that as ram capacities get bigger, the chances of having bad ram increase likewise. Some level of ECC will help improve yield, in a similar way employed by flash SSDs.  
    My thoughts
    A combination of improving CPU clocks, more cores, and more efficient cores contributes to increasing levels of CPU core performance, with the effect the ratio of ram bandwidth has been in decline for a while. DDR5 will address that and help prevent it being as much of a bottleneck. The timescales still seem to be some way out. Maybe server implementations around this time next year. Consumer applications maybe towards end of 2021, or into 2022. Don't hold your breath.
     
    It will also be interesting what this might mean to the ram overclocking crowd. With the voltage regulation on module, do we still have significant control over that? How much impact on latency performance might the two half as wide channels per module provide? How will we refer to this in future? If we were to say a future memory controller could talk to two modules simultaneously at full bandwidth, as most consumer level offerings today, would we call that quad channel? It's technically correct, although with half the width in each channel it doesn't provide a maximum bandwidth improvement over a DDR4 dual channel of otherwise same speed.

    hollyh88 got a reaction from Anas Dweik in 1080 ti used vs 5700xt   
    that would be in about 2 months from now on. you can expect at the very least the 3080 and above to be released. athough.. specs for the 3070/ti have also been released meaning perhaps they will also release then. so.. if you can wait you should. and yet people always joke about waiting and then waiting more but there is a difference between 2 months and 1 year i personally am happy with my 2070 super. but knowing nvidia they always release something more months later. but ill probably wait and get an rtx 4000 series

    point being.. wait. then see if prices drop for a 2070 super which they will. or get a 3070 and enjoy a nice perf bump over the 5700xt and 1080ti. since you are using a "2k" monitor this will be the better bet for you. since you will certainly profit from a much better gpu that will only release in a few weeks over these "older" ones.

    hollyh88 got a reaction from Sahl in best gpu to choose from?   
    that cpu or any of the latest i5 or up gives the most out of a gpu. compared to intel. the faster the better in some games. Buuuuuuut.... 
     
    i suggest 2080 with that cpu. if you want to buy now. not the 5700xt you would be giving up performance you could easily achieve with such a good gaming cpu. but as said above already.. wait. no need to build a new pc with nvidia releasing 3070/ti(most likely), 3080/ti and 3090 in september.

    hollyh88 got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Rx 5700 xt or rtx 2070   
    mostly. not for everyone though so as always with amd gpu's be aware you can have driver issues. yes i know they exist with nvidia too just.. not as much. 
    the 2070 wont be better than the 5700xt. just be aware you buy a good model that can handle thermals properly. since those cards have a tendency to heat up quickly with bad aib models or the reference. 

    however.. that being said. it is often better to wait now that 3000 series is just around the corner. you may be able to get something better for the same price point. so wait. my guess that the 3070 will be around 450 ish bucks with more than 2080 level of performance. aka closer to 2080 super. so.. your best bet is to just wait. unless you absolutely have to get a card now. then go for the 5700xt. just get a good aib model. 

     
    no. it is not. the 5700xt is better. also in 4k.

    3600. if you want to buy now. 3300x is good and all but 4 cores 8 threads aint gonna last long when consoles are out and games will be produced with them in mind aka using more cores and more threads. also, since you want to stream and content create it would generally be the better option. well that or the 3700x but since that one is not in your budget reach i would go for the 3600. 
     
    heck you might get lucky and get a very new model from this year and have a 3600 that can hold all core oc of 4.4/4.5

    it might indeed be smarter to wait. get a cheap gpu. wait for ampere  it will drop the prices of current gpus and or may give you an optional better gpu to buy at the same amount you would spend now.
