  1. Prices on the second hand market for a 3600 were as low as 140 euro's second hand and 170 euro's new price 4 months ago though. It definitely has gone up where I life.
  2. Hello, I am watching second hand prices for a while now as I am planning to do a build in a couple of months. What I noticed is that parts over the last few months, for the european/belgian-netherlands market is that prices for these parts rose through the roof instead of going down. I am seeing AMD ryzen 3600's being sold for 180 euro's, barely 10 euro's cheaper then what you can find them for new price. Even older hardware like i5-6500's have gone up in prices. The only exception are previous generation gpu's which have massively dropped due to Nvidia's better performance to
  3. Hello, This is going to be a long explanation, but it's needed, so please bare with me. My company is currently dealing with a very strange and significant problem. You see, our parent company pushed down skype for business on us (for windows desktops), replacing our classic phone devices with voip through skype for business. That got installed last week and aside a few minor issues and glitches, that works fine. We have a 2 trap system, where the 2 employees on the bottom floor get inbound calls first and if those 2 are occupied or don't answer in 20 seconds, the call
  4. Oh that is the exact same card I have in one of my pc's! That card is extremely overclockable, and in normal conditions the factory overclock should not be giving any issues whatsoever. I am not sure if it is the riser cable, but try it out regardless. Keeping the amount of variables low as possible is always a good thing during trouble shooting. If it still happens, last resort would be to put the card in a friend's pc and see if the same crash occurs. It's likely something on the card is causing this. A resistor/capacitor getting too hot or something. Unfortunaly that
  5. Did you overclock the GPU? Maybe it is crashing due not getting enough power. Try to raise the voltage a tiny bit and see if that gets it stable. Do not change anything else for now. Not sure if you are using the 1060 or the 570; the 1060 isn't known for having systematic issues. Maybe try to reseat the card too. It could be the thermal paste too; maybe a small part of the card gets extremely hot. Not sure which exact 1060 6gb you have, but it shouldn't be too much a hassle to replace the paste.
  6. That looks very clean; I'd keep using that PSU. Just be sure to put nothing too taxing in your system. Maybe blow out the little bit of dust too. But like others said: no bulged capacitors, no corrosion on the PCB, nothing that even looks out of the ordinary. At the end of the day, it is an electric device. It can always fail, but in reality this PSU should be safe to use for some more years. Maybe try to run the PSU outside the PC case to check if the fan spins normally and decently. I can't possibly imagine that being a problem, but if it gives you further assurance,
  7. If you are asking if most 3000 series cards will be consuming more than the 2080Ti specifically, the answer would highly likely be no.
  8. Either your CPU is thermal throttling, something broke in it or you are indeed running too many background programs. Though I assume you have looked into the latter yourself. You said you replaced the GPU's thermal paste. Did you do the same for the CPU? The GPU is not the problem here; your CPU is bottlenecking the GPU.
  9. Hello, I got my dad a new phone. Lovely device, but we hit an issue: if his phone is in standby for a little while, so without the screen on, whatsapp stops receiving messages. The messages will not be received until he opens up whatsapp. Now, after that if he closes the phone and messages are being send shortly after, those messages will be received. But, if the phone is closed for like 15 minutes it will stop receiving again. So I don't immediately know what's going on. Is there some setting that turns off wifi or whatsapp while in standby?
  10. The notion about IPC was learnful! Thanks about that. I guess I didn't hear about since the manufacturers aren't too keen on releasing those numbers
  11. I did that for kicks and giggles. It beats a similarily clocked 3770k by a healthy margin in Cinebench R15. See the video for the 3770k: I also have to correct myself, it's not a 5650 (which has 12 cores), but a 5675. My CPU got, with a clockspeed of 4375Mhz in the bios, task manager and CPU-Z, on the multi-core test 923 points 970 points (I did a.second test with more time after booting) The single core score is 127, which does get soundly beaten by the 3770k. Unfortunaly it gets heavily beaten by an AMD Ryzen 2 3600, which at 4200Mhz clockspeed gets a 1578 score.
  12. Hmm, So there is more to the cpu just than clock speed and cores? I know it's an old cpu, but given the equal amount of cores/threads and on par clock frequency (after OC), compared to the AMD Ryzen 3600, it should be equal in performance no? The mobo however I do think is too causing a bottleneck.
  13. Hello, One of my pc's is an old system with the following specs: -Rampage III Extreme motherboard -Xeon X5650 6 cores OC'ed to 4.2Ghz -A rather unfortunate mix and match of a 3x2GB tripple channel DDR3 memory, and a single stick of 8GB memory. -A GTX 1070 Now, I know the memory setup is horrible. It works, but the mix and match will make all the stick run just in single channel. This is a trade off I choose years ago when I needed more memory above all else. However, I am starting to feel the memory is becoming a hampering factor. The memory speed is
  14. 600W is more than enough in all honesty, even if you OC the 3900x. Unless the 700W comes with some extra features. EDIT: just checked and there doesn't seem to be extra features. You should go for the 600W CM version (which is semi-modular).
  15. Is there any news on the TDP? Might be just a fetish for me, but I do like power/heat efficient cards
