Thinking about upgrading CPU

 Share

1st off, is Ryzen still proving to be viable? I haven't really kept up.

 

2 years ago I built my current system, 4790K, MSI SLI Krait Edition MOBO, 16GB of RAM and a GTX 1070. I've also got a 1TB HDD, 120 and 250 GB SSD's.

 

Yesterday I was trying to render a video in premier that had a color grade applied to it and watch another video in Chrome. When I tried to click to the next video on YouTube, my monitors all went blank ( my Audio Interface is connected to one of my monitors VIA USB turned off for a second too) and then adobe crashed. CPU was pegged at 100% while the render was happening as well. I've been considering upgrading, I just don't really know which direction to go in from here.

System: i7 4790K, Hyper 212 EVO, 16 GB Crucial Ballistix, GTX 1070 Super clocked, MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition, Corsair RM 750, Corsair 750D (with 2 additional 140mm NZXT fans up top for exhaust.)

You can apply a bit extra voltage to the CPU. Personally I think it's just the CPU getting unstable at its current settings due to age.

Strange, I've never over clocked it. Always thought I might but I just don't really want to push it more with the 212 EVO on it. It hits about 68c max temp when I'm rendering

Did you check your CPU temp? It could be overheating.

68C is quite low. As long as it doesnt go past 75C or 1.35V I think it's good for long term use.

In that case CPU probably didn't cause your software crash.

 

Also either you go to Ryzen or Coffe Lake, you will be buying new CPU+motherboard+RAM. Keep in mind that RAM is very expnsive right now for some reason.

You would be investing a lot of money for marginal better performance. Not sure if it's worth for you, as long as you can figure out what caused your problem and fix it.

Well the thing is that my CPU was pegged at 100% the whole time too, it's not necessarily the temp I'm worried about, it's the load

at rendering it will most likely go to 100% te whole time unless u  change the allocation on the cores to the program :P

even 16core chips will go 100% and get the same ect, u can disable some threads in most rendering programs ( so u can keep doing stuff )

Blame your software for that xD

CPU won't just go to 100% load for no reason. Software is the one responsible, that there is any load on CPU.

You can always look at task manager, what software/service is using your CPU power.

Well I already know the culprit is adobe :p.

In that case it doesn't matter what CPU you will get.

Rendering software will put 100% load on any CPU.
