    5800X3D Upgrade Help

    5800X3D Upgrade Help

    I can't get anywhere near that. I go from an idle of 30C to 75C at full tilt within a span of a few secs. My water temp never gets passed 30C.

    5800X3D Upgrade Help

    I'm on water and see anywhere from low 60's gaming and upwards of 75C on cinebench. These chips just run hot in general like my 5800X.

    5800X3D Upgrade Help

    Pretty much this. The X3D has made overclocking the cpu and ram a moot point. Unless your mobo has an external clock generator, leave it stock and enjoy the games.

    My kit is 4400. I just tell the BIOS to boot at 3733 with the DOCP profile.

    5800X3D Upgrade Help

    Try enabling the default DOCP ram timings. I started from there and started tightening the primary timings until I found a stable spot. Then the secondary timings. Mine defaulted to GDM off and 1T so I left it at that. There's a chart for setting the TRFC.

    Should be able to do -30 all cores using PBO2 curve optimizer with the tweaks from Here's mine. I settled for 1866. FCLK 1900 is a black hole. Anything above that is WHEA central

    6800/6900 Overclock Results

    I had the same issue. Couldn't even go above 2120 MHz. Increase the SoC value (the box in red) until the card is stable. I did 100 at a time. Use timespy to check stability. 2150MHz score will be higher than 2125 MHz (I did 25MHz increments). A few things I picked up with MPT 1. To calculate...

    6800/6900 Overclock Results

    Thanks for the tip bl4C3y3 . I went down a rabbit hole with MPT. I ended up settling on 2600/2700 @ 1.2v and overclocked the memory to 2150MHz fast timing. All it needed was more voltage on the SoC. Changed the power limit to 380w +15% since the card now pulls in 434w. Left the TDC @ 320...

    6800/6900 Overclock Results

    Yeah. It's set at 345W & 365A. This card likes wattages. I had it at 325W / 345A & 2600 / 2700 and only managed 21538. Setting it to 345W + 15% gave me those numbers. Memory sucks though, can't get over 2020. I"m not sure what AMD did to the reference card bios but I'm not able to go above...

    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    First time building a custom loop. Modded the NZXT H510 for better airflow. I've contemplated on watercooling my 6900xt for over half a year. Finally took the plunge and couldn't believe I waited this long to build a custom loop. Things have come a long way from using a heater core.

    Windows 10 adding blue light reduction

    Been using f.lux for a while. I have no problem sleeping with or without it. For me, what it does though is make the monitors less bright at night. Setting it on slow transition, you will hardly notice the change as it dims the blue.

    WTB: Minecraft Account

    So read up on the Minecraft Windows 10 Beta version and it appears to be similar to the Pocket Edition without all the mods capability. It will take some time before it catches up with the original Minecraft. Still looking for someone willing to part with an unused mojang minecraft account.
