  1. i dont think any. tbh this really isn't the first time manufacturers are selling above msrp. ( as i questioned earlier) in the end, its just bad press for nvidia which they might not really care. in the end they still sell chips.
  2. Just wondering... whats the difference between this and the whole pricing up during the 10-series drought cause of the mining boom. Dont get me wrong this is scummy. but most of these companies are scummy anyway.
  3. thanks for the reply! Guess I'm just paranoid about temps especially with how it affects clocks for ryzen.
  4. Hi Guys, I'm currently running a 3600 and 1070 with EKWB Fluid gaming line up of parts (GPU + 360 Rad Top Exhaust + CPU + 240 Rad Side intake; loop is in that order) My GPU temps are fine, however my cpu temps seem abit high (idle 41-54), stress test 75 - 80 degrees (depending on work load) Typically (60 -70 ish under gaming loads etc I've repasted several times and changed washers (cause the previous ones might be a bit thicker than the manual specified) and while temps have come down abit, I'm still perplexed if these are the kind of cpu temperatures i should be expecting. I am living
  5. For gaming. Think that's cause they don't actually turbo up that high during gaming additionally, i think the effect is very marginal as it's only a few FPS higher. (I don't think you see much till you hit a 20-30 FPS increase personally)
  6. Tried it yesterday and I hit 3600 in cinebench. The clocks fluctuating is something I have to get used to for Ryzen I guess. I guess this means processor is okay and background tasks do indeed take up that much resources.
  7. I'll give that a whirl when I get back home!
  8. Hi guys, after tinkering for a few days, I think it's best I grab a sanity check with the wider internet to see if this behaviour is normal or consistent behaviour for the R5 3600 So I finally upgraded my pc to the R5 3600 running 32GB 3200MHz C16 on a Gigabyte Arorus Pro WiFi. Basically the maximum score I ever got on this particular CPU was about 3400 I'm cinebench 20 and that was straight stock from a fresh install running 2133 Ram. Once I start installing the drivers motherboard various, ghub,synapse icue etc) the score dropped to about 3200 even after enabling xmp and turning
  9. We look at only the Graphic score for 3D Mark since this is thje portion we're more concerned with testing at the moment. I'll grab some screen caps later maybe
  10. Temps for GPU and CPU are fine. For usage wise I have not checked on GPU yet (might do it later on when i'm done with my other stuff) But CPU Wise only one or two core is loaded at a time (100% usage)
  11. added testing methodology on first post
  12. I was suspecting that too....but that doesn't justify the low single card scores as well Granted Heaven is not a great benchmarking tool, But even 3Dmark scores were pretty bad.
  13. Forgot to mention the additional stuff I did OTL My bad. Switched out the RAM to 2666 Kits (corsair Vengeance LED) and while a slight boost was not the levels of performance we expected it to be. Also I overclocked the processor to 4GHz to see if the clock speed was the factor but that too netted little results.
  14. Hi, It's been awhile since I last posted here, but ran into an interesting situation at work that had me scouring the internet to no avail. I'm working with an SI right now and Ryzen builds are still relatively hard to come by. So when an order came through for a pretty balling 1800x and 1080ti SLI config I was pretty stoked. Unfortunately we ran into some pretty puzzling performance scores. With the system performing badly. How badly? With SLI the scores were similar to a SINGLE 1070. With a single card, It performed about 1080 levels only. We tested the cards on another system and it p
  15. Really like the idea of ta short throw projector. Would be really nice to augment my current room setup with a wider "screen"
