  1. Have you tried setting both of them in the mining program? Set one card and start mining on it and set the other card and also mine with it but separately Is that even possible?
  2. Ill be home in a few days so ill be able to get a pic then Maybe i have somwthing in my gallery I have a Corsair 275R AirFlow 2 intake fans 3 exhaust fans - one case fan thats working at 100% since its connected to the psu and 2 fans that are the rad fans from the cpu AIO
  3. Yeah i know Usually an oc gets up to 10% performance increase in really really rare cases and games but 80c is kinda high, even for a 2080 Im leaning towards a lower temp The performance side is also important, but with lower temps comes better performance, especially when the card goes from 80c to 70c Its not thermal throttling yet
  4. Do you have a solution? Im also looking for maximum performance and low temps Thats why i didnt buy a custom loop when i built my pc about a year ago
  5. Im more intrested in lowering my gpu temp Lately its reaching 80c on games like apex, the witcher, dying light Low to medium settings Usually its at 65c, 70c top Got a pretty high speed fan curve Idc about noise levels, i have headphones when im playing I prefer max performance and low temps
  6. Is it really worth the extra time and money? My gpu runs a bit hot now and i guess that its because of the summer so i thought about getting a custom loop for it On one hand, it will probably run cooler and i could maybe oc it to a higher level But on the other hand, i have a 2080 Aorus so it has 4 years or warranty and ive had it for a little over a year now. I also thought about looping the cpu Ive got a 10600k which is now at 4.8GHz all cores on 1.29v and its stable as a rock 4.9GHz all cores is stable 97% of the time at 1.33v And 5GHz is stable 60% of the
  7. platinum sample? never heard of it before heard about golden chips but not platinum samples does that mean it has better oc capabilities? how did you check that?
  8. Almost every single game if not every game is hitting a GPU bottleneck, even with a 3090 GPUs are just not as strong as CPUs even when you push them to the limit (when talking about game bottlenecks)
  9. Its not really a surprise But you need to check the timings with cpu z or with ASRocks timing configurator This clock speed will be worthless if the timings are really loose
  10. No But it really depends on the card and exact model For example, Gigabyte's RTX 3060 Gaming OC has a power target of 170w under load and a power limit of 212w So, lets round those 170w to 200w Cpu, mb and ram is maybe 100w at max You end up with a power consumption of around 300w 100w headroom is nice The RTX 2080 Gaming OC, for example, has a power limit of 245w It will fit but it will leave you with around 50w of headroom You also need to upgrade your ram, games can really benefit from 16gb of ram Dont forget that windows also take up ram, a
  11. Well, idk what its like with Ampere in your country but in mine the cheapest RTX 3070 that I could fine is the Gigabyte Gaming OC version for 1534 bucks I always go for the best version, usually the Gigabyte AORUS since I like it when my card runs cool and I also tend to overclock it to its limits so a high power limit and good cooling is really important So, the "worst" and cheapest version of Gigabyte's 3070 is the Gaming OC and its going for 1534 Bucks The version that I would buy is, as I've said, the 3070 AORUS version and it goes for 1663 bucks On the other hand, the
  12. cpu or gpu? if the cpu is at 80c underload while gaming its pretty bad usually the cpu is at 50-60c while gaming especially the 3600 since its a pretty cold cpu
  13. First of all, get a second stick of ram 16gb are way better then 8gb and having 2 sticks instead of 1 will help You can also max out your motherboard with an I7 4790K If you have a decent motherboard, do it. The difference will be big, and you'll be able to go for a much stronger gpu without bottlenecking it as much as you will with the 4130 If you don't want to spend too much on the cpu, get even an I5 4690K/4670K just don't stay with this 2 core I3 As for the gpu, I have 2 suggestions for you: 1. Get any of these: GTX 1070 Ti and above or RTX 2070 and above
  14. Get the super The Ti is not worth the extra cost
