    Diablo II Resurrected: Offical Thread

    I suspect that many people here put dozens of hours into the original D2 and.....don't feel the need to revisit it.

    5950X - Newegg Shell Shocker for $729

    I wouldn't say it "demolishes" the 5950x in Cinibench R23 multithread. The leak numbers says It does about 2000 points better. Which isn't a ton. But it is a fair bit. That's the difference between a 10700 and 11700. However, the single core number is devestating. What's clear, is that Intel's...

    5950X - Newegg Shell Shocker for $729

    If the leaks are true----5950x should remain competitive in truly multi-threaded loads. But the single core (or lightly threaded) performance of Alder Lake will annihilate. A recent leak showed a single core score over 2,000, in Cinibench R23. Which is nutso.

    R7 3700X on X370 with 3600 ram?

    Obviously, you are tunnel vision set on 3600mhz RAM. Buy it if you want. But the performance numbers do not agree that 3600mhz ram is of any tangible benefit Vs. the RAM which you already have. You are also starting to be rude in this thread so...I'm out.

    Weird 5800x Symptoms

    I can't say for sure its THE reason for your friend's SHA failure, specifically. But its common for Ryzen systems to need a bump to the SOC voltage, in order to behave normally with high speed RAM. And the symptoms can vary a lot. It will be a pretty simple thing to test. Put the SOC voltage at...

    Weird 5800x Symptoms

    In the Asus Bios, it should be something like VDDR_SOC voltage. Its for the memory controller, infinity fabric, etc. Its separate from the DRAM/RAM stick voltage.

    Weird 5800x Symptoms

    Its likely you need to increase the SOC voltage in the bios, for the system to be stable/no errors/weird behavior, with RAM at 3600mhz. Its generally accepted that SOC voltage shouldn't be set higher than 1.2v. I would start with 1.2v and see if it fixes your issues. If it does, then you can...

    R7 3700X on X370 with 3600 ram?

    that's only if the 16GB modules are single rank. Most 16Gb are dual rank. dual rank is dual rank. if your inidividual sticks are dual rank, then it doesn't matter if you have 2 or 4 sticks. the point of 4 sticks---is for single rank sticks. Your motherboard will use each pair as a "double"...

    R7 3700X on X370 with 3600 ram?

    I think your are conflating terms and ideas. End result is that 3200mhz DDR4 with Cas 14, isn't strictly worse than 3600mhz with average timings like 17/18/19. Performance is largely the same. There are a couple of things here or there, which favor the extra mhz of the 3600 or would favor the...

    R7 3700X on X370 with 3600 ram?

    You should take a look at performance numbers for RAM in general, but also for Ryzen, specifically. and maybe even specifically for your motherboard. Here is one example: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-zen-2-memory-performance-scaling-benchmark/ The performance your computer gets from...

    R7 3700X on X370 with 3600 ram?

    If your 3200 ram has cas timing of 14----you won't get a lot of benefit from average 3600mhz RAM. If the 3600 has fairly low timings like cas 16 and you take care to tweak sub timings and infinity fabric speeds----you will get some benefit. But not enough to warrant the money, IMO. But do go...

    New-ish build is blue-screening randomly - SSD, port or BIOS issue?

    I think it depends upon the board, cpu, and memory combo. On the combo I have running right now----I get all sorts of delayed clicks and processes where I have to often wait a few seconds, with default soc voltage. with 1.13 voltage set, I get delayed clicks on just about everything. but no...

    New-ish build is blue-screening randomly - SSD, port or BIOS issue?

    It could be named something different, depending upon the brand. or even where you are looking, in the Bios. In my asus board, it something like VDDR SOC Voltage. You can see it on the same page as the CPU voltage adjustments. But you can also adjust it in at least two other places, via the...

    New-ish build is blue-screening randomly - SSD, port or BIOS issue?

    Do you have the SOC voltage in the bios, at 1.2v? If not, try that. Some Ryzen board and CPU combos won't run fast RAM stable, without a bump to the SOC voltage. *I'm also a fan of fresh Windows installs ;)

    ASUS PRIME Z590-P/I5-10600k

    Right. But on MSI's newer two slot boards, they also wired one of the chipset PCI-E 3.0 storage lanes, to slot 1. So you can use both slots with a 10 series CPU.
