    Zenith_X1 got a reaction from Benjamin22044 in PC radomly restarts at all times, but never mid game   
    I was having issues with restarts for a few years.  They were rare and only occured when I had youtube + a game running at the same time.  Eventually I updated the BIOS which tweaked the default power management settings, and after 3 months my system is crash free

    Yup, my mobo issue is with my aging Z190 by Gigabyte.  Update from 2016 version 6 to newest version 22f from 2018 did the trick.  It has made me more diligent about BIOS updates going forward.  It also gave a more stable, higher OC.

    Zenith_X1 reacted to Mark Kaine in PC radomly restarts at all times, but never mid game   
    I had something similar too... never happened in games.
    was a new mobo (tomahawk max)
    I think I tried updating the bios but failed due to MSI's insufficient instructions and sloppy programming (it just wouldn't work) 
     
    returned the board, issue is gone.
     
    so either it was a faulty board, or faulty bios (more likely)

    I dont get mad at Shroud for using his super PC to play on the lowest possible settings because it's his computer.  I would be mad if he forcibly turned down details on my computer.
    Let Linus be Linus and you be you.  In a time of random rage, there are absolutely things that aren't worth being angry at

    Zenith_X1 got a reaction from j1mgg in How do you achieve 200+FPS, high settings, 1080p, on games like warzone?   
    Games tend to prefer clockspeed on the CPU, so a newer CPU with a bunch more cores but slower clock speed may still lose to an older CPU with higher clocks.  Depends on how well the game is multi-threaded

    Zenith_X1 got a reaction from ne0tic in Microsoft To Buy Bethesda Studios For $7.5 Billion   
    I don't know that it's bad for Bethesda titles.  After Fallout 76 I have so little faith in Bethesda leadership that maybe Microsoft's pressure with force them to reconsider their approach for Starfield and TES:6.  If Bethesda makes another terrible experience for its customers, it will look bad on Microsoft and XBOX simultaneously which would be a PR nightmare

    Zenith_X1 got a reaction from Tan3l6 in 3080 for 1440p at 60Hrz   
    1440p 60Hz might mean the 3080 is overkill in all but the newest titles.  3080 can make use of much higher refresh rates, which I think many of us would argue are preferable to gaming at higher resolution.  Do consider a 1440p 144 Hz monitor in the future paired with a 3070.  The savings from getting 3070 instead of 3080 will help you get a higher refresh rate monitor.
     
    3080 can get you into the 90+ FPS range at the far more demanding 4k, so it will shred 1440p like nothing, giving you a literal "Monitor Bottleneck" in which your CPU and GPU are both held back by your display

    Zenith_X1 got a reaction from PlayStation 2 in Since when did Resolution Scaling become a thing?   
    200% resolution scaling just means supersampling.  Native shouldnt look quite this bad unless you're running a bad antialiaser like FXAA that blurs to achieve smoothness, but yeah if you supersample the AA effect will be drastically reduced.  200% also means that you are now rendering at a resolution that completely eclipses your 1080p panel.
     
    Try a 1440p or 4k panel and run TAA, MSAA, or turn AA off

    Zenith_X1 reacted to Moonzy in Buy parts now while waiting for Ryzen 4000x?   
    CPU Mobo and RAM comes in a set, it's not a great idea to buy them separately
    1) not sure what RAM speed is sweet spot for zen 3
    2) not sure what new features are on new mobo, might be compelling to you
     
    GPU, Casing, Storage, and PSU can be bought early, but only if you can verify they work while within the return period.
    and it's not recommended to buy more than a few weeks earlier due to warranty period just being burnt off
    but they can be a compelling buy during sales

    Zenith_X1 got a reaction from Dedayog in Hi will the RTX 3080 FE be better than customs and..?   
    I can't recommend spending $200 extra for a GPU that might see no benefit at 1080p, so I'm glad to hear you are looking at 1440p.  1440p would benefit from a 3080 more than a 3070
     
    Buying a 3080 for 1080p resolution is like buying an LS7 engine for a Toyota Camry at this point.

    Zenith_X1 reacted to Rohith_Kumar_Sp in Nvidia, you PROMISED!   
    This is true. Pci 3rd gen 10900k is giving more performance than a ryzen 4th gen in digital foundry's review. Hence my confusing and disappointment with the review.

    Zenith_X1 reacted to Mateyyy in Nvidia, you PROMISED!   
    Why would you use a 3950X for the test bench? Or rather, why only a 3950X, and not also a 10700K/10900K to see whether Nvidia's claim that "a faster CPU still is more important than PCIe 4.0" holds true (which it does)?
     
    It was already known that Zen 2 holds back the 2080Ti even at 1440p, if not lower-end SKUs as well, so imo the testing methodology for gaming benchmarks made no sense. Just like including CS:GO in the benchmark suite, which is known to be a mostly CPU bound title regardless of resolution, making the CPU choice even more questionable.

    I'm disappointed that linus's reviews doesn't cover in depth as it uses to do before. 
     
    I got more out of Jayz 2 cents video than linus'a video as the benchmarks linus use is not sufficient and a bit confusing

    Zenith_X1 reacted to The Torrent in IF you plan to buy a 3080 for 1080p...   
    far cry is extremely cpu intensive so its difficut to talk about games like that, but yea I understand what you are saying.
     
    But 1080p 3080 is completely viable imo when ur aiming for super high refesh rate and low cpu intensive games, because i mean face it 240hz is not gonna really be any good at all in a slow movement game like farcry or witcher 3 or even assassins creeds is it. Which is why I always max them for eyecandy. But if you remember the 240hz market they are very useful (or so the limited benchmarks so far show).
     
    But we will find out soon enough.

    you seem to have answered a different comment.
     
    If you read one of nano's earlier comments, he say he is unable to hit 144hz in any games with his 8700k. My comment was regarding the fact that he should probably upgrade if he cant ( if x dont work, x +1 should), not regarding to the specific cpu. I linked a photo of a realtime 'benchmark' comparison of call of duty 2080 vs 3080. I mean for people aiming for 240hz which is a pretty large market now, the 3080 is totally viable at 1080p. Its wrong to assume its rubbish for 1080p as then your ignoring the entire 240hz+ market or your assuming everyone who has a 240hz monitor and enough money for a 3080 has a garbage cpu which is just dumb...
     
    Anyway, the fact that the 10900k is similar in single core to an oc'd 8700k reinforces my point, because it links more up with the 'benchmark' photo I linked.
