    Please review my bios settings, suggest changes and help me get to 5.7ghz please :)

    Quick info Asus Z790 D4 DDR4 i5 13600K 4090 FE 48GB 3200 Corsair LPX 1200 EVGA PSU My voltage at 1.33 got me stable to 5.6ghz. It was at 1.28 running up to 5.5. I'm hesitant to go too high obviously but even at 1.35 5.7ghz I am getting crashes during UserBenchmark CPU test. Should I keep...

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    Intel i5 13600K on MSI Z690/Z790 - need voltage & power settings advice

    I bumped my voltage from 1.25 to 1.33 and now I'm stable at 5.6. Not sure where I should stop, but might try for 5.7 later tonight. I told myself I wasn't going to become obsessed with overclocking this thing but it's funny how fast that rule gets broken once you start tinkering.

    Intel i5 13600K - just as super-sweet when overclocking?

    My i5 13600 is running at 5.5/4.2 without adjusting anything but ratio. I think I need more voltage for 5.6 because it's shutting down during userbench CPU test. Voltage is about 1.2ish

    Intel i5 13600K on MSI Z690/Z790 - need voltage & power settings advice

    Looking forward to check this out when I get home. My i5 136000 runs 5.5 with ease. At 5.6 I am getting a shutdown during UserBenchmark CPU test so I think it needs a bit more juice, everything is default atm. (1.27-1.3 volts)

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    This actually makes a lot of sense. I have spent more time than I care to admit trying to understand why I was feeling the difference after being told here that my room isn't cooler. I can understand people telling me my theory was wrong, but the results just made that hard to accept. My room...

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    Yeah I game at 1440p 165. I don't think I am stressing the card out at all compared to the 3090 then? I'm really not looking to argue or prove anyone wrong, but all I can say is my room is cooler since upgrading to a 13th gen CPU from an 10th and from a 3090 to a 4090. The air coming out of...

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    Yeah, I am. My room is cooler after putting in a new GPU. The biggest change in heat output I can feel is from my GPU, where as before it was cranking hot air out, now it isn't. So again, the GPU running cooler, regardless of how, is resulting in a cooler gaming room. I haven't checked too...

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    Not just the cooler and my room is much cooler the card is mildly warm to the touch the air coming out of the back is much cooler compared to the 3090 which was hot as hell to the touch. Cooler card=cooler room. Source: Me in said room that I used to have to open a window in and now no longer do.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    I don't mine. A 3090 is hot as hell, the 4090 is not. Temps that range 73-80 are going to warm a room far more than temps that range 55-60? 450 watts doesn't seem to matter. It's handled well either by design or a big hunk of metal. I think both it's just a cooler running card 3090 my...

    Coil Whine on Nvidia 4090 and 4080 cards

    Was it worth the switch to DDR5 in games? Like noticeable? I'd hate to ditch this setup I have now as it's stable as hell, just curious what kind of real world gaming increase I could expect from DDR5. I'm thinking not much unless numbers are what I'm after. As it is with a 4090 the games...

    Coil Whine on Nvidia 4090 and 4080 cards

    1) It's a DDR 4 mobo 2) I bought this system pre-built for 2,300 dollars from a dude on Facebook who didn't want to scalp but needed to sell for personal reasons. I wanted just the card, but I made an exception because the price was nuts, and now am building my daughter a gaming computer with...

    Coil Whine on Nvidia 4090 and 4080 cards

    I have a 4090 FE and hear no coil whine. If it has it, it's extremely silent. All corsair fans at half speed, very quiet. I do have a higher end Asus Z790.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    I got the 4090FE, it's the best computer purchase I've made since 3DFX Voodoo 2 SLI. After owning the space heater 3090, this thing is just a breath of fresh cool air. It's so good.

    PX1 RGB control of 4090 FE

    Good question. Just noticed Asus Armoury center is controlling it as well. Too bad they only used white for the lettering.

    PX1 RGB control of 4090 FE

    So this is hardly something to get excited about but cool to discover while having coffee I guess. Precision X controls the tiny RGB accent on the 4090FE lol You can only control the brightness of the text. My pic does nothing to show what it really looks like but it is a nice touch if you...

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    I had one in cart and then lost it, what a joke. I have an FE but trying to get one for my buddy. The guy I got mine from got his through Geforce experience somehow? Annoying as fuck Nvidia wouldn't do more releases though GFE so maybe that could help the bot situation.

    Who here is keeping their 3 series and skipping 4 series nV cards?

    Before I gamed on it, the tinge of buyers remorse in me would have disagreed. However, after gaming on it last night, yes I really did! Amazing chonk of video card. Not to mention my gaming room staying so much cooler.

    Who here is keeping their 3 series and skipping 4 series nV cards?

    If you look back, you will see that I said I just got a 3090 and while that is true, I am an idiot and couldn't help myself and got a 4090FE. Now I have a 3090 for my 10 year olds gaming computer in the works lol. Overkill, might downgrade and trade plus cash or something on that one. So...

    Ah that makes sense. Thank you. I've been tinkering with CPU bios settings just checking on my work haha.

    Look at the 4080 launch price chart compared to the last 8 launches omg wow

    I'm buying used Nvidia from now on. They really do piss me off, but not enough to switch to AMD yet.

    I'm confused on Windows Perf Mon CPU reading

    I have my CPU overclocked using the FSB bclk to 103 (lol early 2000's) using an MSI Z590 and an i9 10900. Everything is great. I just noticed however that Windows is reading my CPU lower than what CPU-Z and my bios and any other app I've tested it with read it at. I'm confused by this. Thanks.

    Who here is keeping their 3 series and skipping 4 series nV cards?

    I'm still trying to process that comment you are commenting on. Best boards most likely, best cooler, best looking card. I'm not in the market either having just bought a 3090 FTW3, I wish I had an FE. I wouldn't consider any 40 series that wasn't an FE, and the fact that they are more...

    Who here is keeping their 3 series and skipping 4 series nV cards?

    Keeping? I upgraded to a 30 series from a 20 series 2 weeks ago lol I waited to see what kind of crack Nvidia was smoking, said fuck that and made my move. 1080ti to 2080ti to 3090. I'll get a 4090 in a year or 2. lol thousand dollar video cards. Not me bruh.

    MicroCenter confirms GeForce RTX 4080 US pricing, from $1200 to $1549

    I bought a used 3090 and couldn't be happier. This shit needs to settle down before I ever consider buying new again. Not worth it in the slightest. I just went from a 2080TI to a 3090 and aside from knowing what my computer is packing, the 2080ti had plenty of life and so did the 1080ti I...

    I'm kind of sorry to ask this, but opinions on a possible upgrade from 3080 to 3090

    I'm kind of sorry to ask this, but opinions on a possible upgrade from 3080 to 3090

    Probably worth mentioning another reason I was feeling a little VRAM envy was because I'm starting to get into DCS world and from all I'm reading that game just devours VRAM because it's an on optimized piglet. This upgrade was already stretching my budget beyond what I really wanted to put...

    I'm kind of sorry to ask this, but opinions on a possible upgrade from 3080 to 3090

    I'm going for it. He came down to 250. So a 3090 came to 500 plus a 2080ti that I traded a 1080ti and 300 dollars for 4 years ago lol. Not sure how that worked out overall but it's easier on the wallet somehow. And I end up with a higher wattage PSU Man I wish it was a Ti. I always go Tie...

    Nvidia RTX 3080 FE RMA experience

    Tough call, I'm not sure I would sacrifice a port for an overclock especially down the road when you go to resell. I wouldn't feel warm and comfy buying a card with a dead DP port out of the gate. I get ya though but thems the breaks lol
