  1. It was going to be a 3900X, but the upgrade was subsidized
  2. It was a free-to-him upgrade. The original plan as said was for me to subsidize his purchase of a 3900X for $399, but another friend of his offered to chip in the $350 extra for the 5950X.
  3. Budget (including currency): $500 excluding CPU, GPU, and storage Country: United States Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Programming/development, gaming, and streaming of coding and gaming Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): This build is for a friend of mine. The GPU was already acquired via the Newegg Shuffle ($380 XFX Speedster RX 6600XT) and myself and a third friend are subsidizing the CPU p
  4. The i5 6400 requires a 100 or 200 series motherboard. You need an 8th or 9th gen CPU for a Z390 board
  5. What is your Hardware Polling Period set to in Settings>Monitoring? Try setting it to 1000.
  6. In 5-8 years, I'd predict that neither of these CPUs will be able to play AAA titles from that generation. Zen and Zen+ have about the single core performance of Haswell. Do you think the i7 4770K will be able to play AAA games in 2026? There was only a minor uplift in single-core performance from Zen to Zen+, but when it comes to gaming Zen+ did much better. And even now, few games can take advantage of 8 cores. If you're trying to buy for the future, my advice would be to save your money and get neither CPU. The best currently available options to be able to game long
  7. The cheapest board I've seen that has a decent VRM is the B550M Bazooka from MSI. It's not a great overclocking board, but it's only $110 right now on Newegg
  8. You get 24 PCIe lanes on the 5600G, so you get the full x16 going to the primary slot. They are only 3.0 lanes, but you aren't limited to x8.
  9. It could be reporting based on the base TDP of the 3080, which is 320W. 368/320=1.15
  10. Then any additional work will end up within the margin of error as you can see from this video. You've already got 4 sticks at 3600 CL16. That's basically as good as it gets for Ryzen 5000 gaming under realistic conditions.
  11. If you're mainly gaming, that should be plenty. You're at the point where any additional work will likely result in almost immeasurable gains to FPS, either average or lows, unless you're playing at 1080p low on a 6900XT or something, and even then, additional gains would probably be unnoticeable, even if measurable.
  12. Well that's fantastic, a really great update! We'll open up that Steam launcher and download the update to my computer, then we'll try out DLSS on the game to see how the performance is and it's gone. Guess I'll try back later and see if they've fixed it. Who would've thought adding DLSS would bork the account system for the game...
  13. If the power doesn't become heat, then where does the power go? Energy is always conserved. Power usage in the end is always equal to heat output. It might take some time for the power to become heat, but it always will. The efficiency of a CPU is based on how much work it does (frames rendered, bytes compressed, FLOPS, etc) vs how much power it has drawn. But all of that power ends up as heat. I think you're confusing it with an electrical circuit, where the goal of an efficient wire is to not consume any power at all, but to instead allow all the power to pass through
  14. You may be able to increase allocated VRAM in BIOS. This option is not always exposed to the user on laptops, but it's the first place I'd check.
  15. Is that the only game it happens in? If so, have you tried reinstalling the game? Also, are your graphics drivers and chipset drivers up to date?
