    Anyone “upgraded” from 5900X to 5800X3D for gaming?

    I settled on -0.05 offset and under gaming, temps are 72C. It's just a few degrees warmer than my 5900x was, but seeing consistent 140-150fps in darktide is worth it. V seems to have settled down too, under load it's just asking for 1.07-1.08v. I actually got it working with a -0.25v offset, but...

    Darktide: Vermintide (same team) but in 40K IG vs Chaos Cultists

    It's dark, but it has improved a good chunk since the early open beta. Visibility is improved to a point where I don't feel the darkness is a problem to me anymore. There ARE dark missions where the power is out, and you have visibility of like 5ft. It has a modifier so you can actively avoid...

    Q3 2022 Discrete GPU market share. AMD losing market share in Q3 2022

    I own a 6700XT from last gen and it's plugged into my HTPC. The driver issue is real. When nvidia does a driver update via windows, my only clue is when I encounter maybe a one off bug in a particular game. I let my htpc do auto updates as it's not my main rig. When AMD does a driver update, I...

    Scratched my motherboard with screwdriver. Am I in trouble?

    I screwed a screw THROUGH a trace on an old heatsink design back in 2002 on a service call. It cost me out of pocket to replace the motherboard. I felt way worse from screwing up than taking the $ hit on the job.

    RTX 2080 Super vs. 3060Ti (OEM)

    I'd go with 3060ti over 2080 super. If your target is 4k 120fps, it's not going to cut it for a lot of modern games, 4k 60fps is so so. My concern about the "60fps" avg of a 3060ti, is the 1% dips into the 30fps range. Take a game like elden ring where a well timed roll, parry requires frame...

    Updgrading - RTX 4080 or OLED display?

    It depends on the games the op really plays, if they are GPU bound or CPU bound. He'll need to look up the ones he cares about and determine if his setup does his target FPS at 4k at his desired settings. While he may be "fine" pairing a 4080 with an 8700k, it's also saying you'd be fine on...

    Anyone “upgraded” from 5900X to 5800X3D for gaming?

    I'm running a corsair AIO 280. Idle temps around 47-48C, in gaming I've seen it touch 80C, but on average it's hovering around 72-74C. I was able to get the temp down while maintaining 4350-4450mhz avg by just running a voltage offset -0.06V Under load, I see it hover around 1.19-1.23V vs...

    Anyone “upgraded” from 5900X to 5800X3D for gaming?

    Update on 5800x3d. CPU runs hot, on the plus side, darktide got a significant fps boost.

    Updgrading - RTX 4080 or OLED display?

    There are games showing a 3090 gaining performance with an upgrade from 5900x to 7900x, let alone a 13900K. Considering the 8600k, it will be bottlenecking even a 3080ti, especially when you try running 4k.

    Updgrading - RTX 4080 or OLED display?

    4080 is a waste with that CPU, new monitor at 4k will be starved to hit 60fps with that PC. Upgrade to better CPU/mobo, pick up a cheap used 3080ti/3090 (or wait on 7900xt card)

    Darktide: Vermintide (same team) but in 40K IG vs Chaos Cultists

    I've been playing the recent beta and the last beta. First on a 3090, then 4090. The 3090 performance was 80-120 with no ray tracing. With gsync on, it was a very good experience. The 4090 with DLSS3 lets me play full ray tracing and with 1% lows of 100 fps. If you're going to have dynamic...

    4090 owners, how are you dealing with the power connector fiasco?

    As much as we say qc is bad, the failure rate is incredibly low and the evidence is geared more towards user error. All processes have a failure rate, just sucks for the people on that side of the coin.

    Darktide: Vermintide (same team) but in 40K IG vs Chaos Cultists

    The highest settings IS the highest settings after all. Looking at cyberpunk, full RT on with those same specs will barely similar as well. Do you NEED highest settings to enjoy? A 3090 with low RT settings and DLSS will net around 80fps, which is pretty decent. I have a friend running a i7700...

    4090 owners, how are you dealing with the power connector fiasco?

    Wire gauge hasn't been the problem. Gamers nexus actually cut 4 wires off and ran 600W through just 2 wires on the power side. It did not melt or light on fire. The problem is potentially just some poor quality pins on the male side combined with user error. As much as it pains the ones with...

    Nvidia RTX 4090 power connectors melting?

    I think you're a little behind on the news. There are 2 types of soldering jobs that exist, neither of which was shown to be the problem. See pics of all failures, melting happened within the plug pin ares, not the soldering joints. Many of us are pushing hundreds of hours of heat cycles now as...

    Anyone “upgraded” from 5900X to 5800X3D for gaming?

    In most gaming situations I see 4500, if you look at individual cores, you will see spikes of cores running as high as 4800, even 3dmark hits 4600 avg for me. I've decided to stick to my 5900x. In darktide, the cpu usage hovers around 40% and 4090 is touching 99% usage. Settings are maxed up...

    MSI Afterburner - malware alert google search

    A lot of sketch "Ads" on google search for MSI Afterburner. They are copying the landing page for MSI and the download is for some malicious file that varies in size around 300mb. My scans showed some trojans in the files. Just a FYI.

    4090 owners, how are you dealing with the power connector fiasco?

    Another test I can recommend after you think it's plugged in, try pulling on the cable straight away from the card. If it's not fully latched, it will back out. I had this happen once when I was doing some wire routing for a back fan and went to take out the card out but not unplug the power...

    Nvidia 4090 meltdown maybe an answer

    It seems like a plausible cause. It would explain a lot of the issues as all the evidence points to a resistance overheat condition. I'd be curious to get all those burnt up samples and tear them apart to confirm that theory.

    Anyone “upgraded” from 5900X to 5800X3D for gaming?

    I also got my pbo setup to -30 save for the * cores and the average boost in gaming is hovering around 4.8 for me. Darktide seems to be my wildcard for whether I could use the boost of a 5800x3d or not. Only considering AM5 as I can save around $130 now for the mobo/cpu combo, and reselling a...

    Anyone “upgraded” from 5900X to 5800X3D for gaming?

    I've been considering this upgrade for a few weeks now. 5800x3d are tough finds near me for the deal price, but a 7700/mobo combo is on sale right now which I've read the 7700 does boost over the 5800x3d and gives me an upgrade path to 7800x3d or 7900x3d. Ideally for me I'd go for a 7900x3d or...

    It's been a few weeks and the cable mod cable is holding out just fine. My nvidia cable was ok too, but I only ran that for a week. I've had daily game sessions lasting hours and I've inspected the cables every 4-5 days now for signs of problems.

    Nvidia RTX 4090 power connectors melting?

    After unplugging it to take pics, I went to plug it back in, but without any significant feedback, I wasn't sure it went in completely.

    Is the RTX 4090 FE vaporware?

    Resizable Bar incompatibilities - whos fault is it?

    Back when resizable bar was first announced, it was limited to newer chipsets and CPU. If you aren't using the ones listed, not much you can do. AMD 2700x is seriously holding back 30 series cards as well as 40 series cards, so resizable bar is the least of your performance handicaps.

    4090 owners, how are you dealing with the power connector fiasco?

    Picked up a cable mod cable for my EVGA PSU. It's cleaner looking now. The nvidia cable was in the system for a week 24/7 and I had a lot of gaming sessions in it. The cable plug adapter doesn't show any signs of overheating.

    More DLSS...

    Been messing with the DLSS frame generation in spider-man remastered. For the most part it's good. It does have issues in reflections where sometimes it just garbles the reflected image. Badly like your card was dying kind of corruption, but it only happens at certain angles and situations...

    Is It Worth Upgrading My GPU At This Point?

    6700xt stutters on my i7 920 box @ 1080p. I use that pc as a remote box so I can game on a 55 inch tv on my couch. If I try to play any modern games on the box, it's got atrocious load times and it stutters.

    Did you get a 4090?

    LOL @ MLID post stating Jensen is personally getting involved. That guy is as full of bullshit as ever. As for the my card, I got my cable mod cable in. I've also taken pics of my cable too just to show that NexusGames may be onto something that Igor's lab may just have a bad example of a cable.
