I'm loving mine.
Upgraded from a Xeon 5670 OC'd @ 4.2Ghz to a 7820X with a quick dirty overclock to 4.6Ghz in about 5 minutes as a trial and:
To render a 10 minute highly edited video previously it took 1 hour 20 minutes. With my 7820X an Asus Tuff Mark 1 rendering the same video takes 32...
Just bought a 7820x and Asus Tuff Mark 1 mobo.
What is a quick and dirty way to Oc this chip (Asus software maybe)
A manual OC. i.e what settings should I absolutely have enabled/disabled in the bios and what settings should I be tweaking to get started.
Have some OC experience...
Thanks all for the recommendations and opinions.
Bought an Asus Tuff Mark 1 motherboard, 7820X CPU, 16GB Vengeance 3200mhz RAM (2 x 8GB), Corsair 750e PSU, Corsair H100i cooler.
The mobo all the ports I need on it (lots of back panel USB).
The CPU makes more sense than a 7700k...
Wicked! Thanks. I've found a 7820X in stock and am picking up tomorrow as it is for a VR gaming rig and editing and I'm quite content with Intel at the minute.
To answer number 2), my current CPU is a Xeon X5670 @4.2Ghz. Thoughts on that?
My final question I guess is RAM. I've googled a...
First of all thanks for all your help. Everyone. Much appreciated.
Hi David, thanks for all your help, I have decided to go with the 7820X.
Also thanks for all your first hand advice! Really good reading about those mobos. I know it one persons experience, but it awesome to see the...
Haha MOARRR CORES!!
Thanks for the input, I'm now looking at going the 7820X.
I think the final question is, editing in Sony Vegas, I saw a post where the 7700k was faster for editing, but render times were dominated by the 7820x and 7900x. Does that make sense?
Is editing better with...
You're right, looking in to it the Tuff Mark 1 and 2. Definitely looks like Mark 1 seems to be the go (a little extra $$ for a better quality) especially for some OC'ing.
If I were to stretch to a 7820X, does that chip make sense to you vs what you would expect to see out of Coffee Lake?
Brilliant, thanks for that!!
The 7820X is out of my price range, as it works out to AU$859.. So I may be stuck with 7800X, what are your thoughts on that chip?
Mobo: Noted, nah I don't need that extra stuff, looking like the Tuff Mark 1 is the go (dust covers which benefit cooling)...
Apologies, I upgraded my sig, I have a GTX 1070 now.
RAM: 32GB - Gskill RIPJAWS 4 (F4-3000C15Q-16GRR) maybe?
Software: Sony Vegas, rarely Premiere, occasionally After Effects
Cooling: Coolermaster H100i (want quiet for audio recording/production)
Drives: I have 3 x...
There seem to be a LOT more options going on than when I last upgraded (2008).
I am eyeballing the 7800x and an ASUS Strix x299 board.
I edit and render a lot of video and play a lot of VR games.
My current PC has an ASUS P6t with OC's Xeon 5670 @4.2GHz.
1 - Is the X...
From a price/performance perspective, which new Intel CPU do you think will get enough gains above a 4GHX x5670 to justify the upgrade?
My P6t and 5670 isn't cutting the compatibility mustard for VR, so was looking at Asus z270 mobo and 6700k CPU as a lot of people I know use this combo for VR...
So yep, the OC was the problem. Happily VR Gaming the past month or so with not a single crash.
The OC was completely stable under Win 7, and also under Win 10 with traditional gaming. But load up a VR game in Win 10 and boom! Crash city.
Reducing the OC to 3.8 woth the same...
I'm running a Xeon 5670 @ 3.8gHz, sometimes 4.2 depending on the task.
Is this CPU likely bottlenecking my Asus GTX 1070 STRIX OC?
I ran the Valley benchmark with the task manager open on the performance tab to keep an eye on the CPU, and GPU-Z to watch the GPU and my GPU was hitting...
Yep I did this. Xeon x5670 here. Was at 4.2gHz but back to 3.8 at more stable and not hitting any kind of bottlenecking. Mobo now 8 years old, CPU 6 years old, picked CPU pulled from server for AU$120.
Happily VR gaming since 3.8, playing Obduction which is CPU intensive. Also video editing...
Holy crap man! Spot on :D I have 4 x 4GB sticks of that RAM on a triple channel P6T.
I went through the manual and forums and made sure the 4 sticks were in the correct slots (spaced out as I recall). Due to editing etc I figured I'd benefit more from 16GB RAM in this config over 12GB in...
What is the difference, or benefits and drawbacks of having a 19 x CPU multiplier and a 200 BCLK to get 3.8gHz, versus having a 20 x multiplier and a 190 BCLK?
My RAM is 1600mHz, and so having a 19 x multi and 200 BCLK gets me 1500(ish)mHz in the DRAM frequency, where as 20 x multi and 190...
Thanks for the info, this is almost EXACTLY how my timeline with VR has looked this year, down to the dual boot and everything, except that I use a Rift... Crazy
For some reason now I can't get Windows 7 to let me install the Oculus Home software, it just won't have a bar of it anymore, on...
Yeah it's been an awesome run! Unfortunately resetting the BIOS back to defaults won't even get me back in to the BIOS after a restart with the 5670, I've manually reverted to 3.8gHz settings and things are looking better already (see previous post)
It's looking like doug_7506 was on to something.
My OC was stable under Win 7, but running a 'high' IBT test in Win 10 it wouldn't even pass one. By reducing the OC from 4.2 to 3.8gHz (reducing CPU ratio multiplyer to 20 with a BCLK of 190) under the same voltage settings I've managed 10...
I hope it's as simple as that. I actually just ran Intel Burn Test which breezed through max under Win 7, but in Win 10 it didnt even makebit past 2 of the high tests.
Actually having difficulty rolling back clock to 3.8gHz :D Can't even boot in to Windows yet. I've over clocked a bitbit...
Yeah it is. I'm going to try this now, maybe reduce it to around 3.8gHz should be very comfy.
After the CPU overclock dial back, I'll try your advice and pull the FW card, then start testing with Hirens disk and swapping out parts.
Thanks so much for the advice, it's good to have a place to...
EDIT: SOLVED - OC was the issue. See bottom post.
My system is constantly locking up (BSOD) in VR under Windows 10 every 30-40 minutes or so. The error I get is one of 2, either the watchdog timeout BSOD, or a IRQL message.
It has occurred through all Nvidia driver and Windows updates...
I have a Samsung 840 Evo SSD 240GB which is set up as a dual boot drive with 2 partitions.
One partition has Windows 7 (music production)and one partition has Windows 10 (gaming).
I just bought a Samsung 850 Evo SSD 500GB and have attempted both the Samsung Data Migration tool and my...
Yeah just spoke to one of the guys at work.
He reckon create the partition, use your windows 7 install disk to install to 2nd partition and then update that to Windows 10. The benefit is that once upgraded, I can clean install Windows 10 on that 2nd partition.
Thanks for the reply.
I have a 250GB SSD with Windows 7 installed. Around 80GB is used.
I want to make an exact clone on to a second partition on that same SSD so I can upgrade one of the OS's to a clean Windows 10 to use as my VR partition and OS.
So it will dual boot, Windows 7 for all my audio software...
Just wondering, do headphones like the Astro A50's send the audio signal via radio waves from the mixamp to the headset, or does it get sent via bluetooth and then the headset itself has a digital to analog converter in it?
Good to hear, thanks :)
Man I still can't believe the chop in these chips. Especially for the price. AND the fact that I happen to build my 1st PC with the Mobo that supports it... Live aint half bad sometimes
This was driving me nuts for ages!!
Not trying to self promote, but when I searched for a solution to this issue, this was the first place I looked.
Hoping it can help someone out there..
This will do nicely. Thanks for letting me know these tests exist. Big help :)
Hi, I'm not working on a project. I am trying to set up a real world benchmark and record the results between 2 devices.
Ideally I would like to max it out somehow to stress test, but I loaded up hundreds of layers of photos and text and the device barely takes a hit.
Any thoughts on what...
Just out of curiosity, what is the most demanding task in Photoshop?
I am trying to compare 2 laptops side by side and would like to load up a heavy duty project and record the results.
After reading this I did some searching and found this article:
The previews are already using Open GL apparently, but then I read
"To enable OpenGL for rendering final output, click the underlined...
