Maybe it's the ASUS TUF for me, then.
I like my Asus B450 and X470 more than my GB X470 due to the better UEFI menus and the GB X470's wonky BIOS.
That, and it seems my B450 can overclock my memory pretty well -- Running 3200 C16 RAM at 3200 C14.
My GB X470 can't even do XMP on 2 sticks or 4...
For X570, I'd look at the X570 Aorus Elite and the X570 TUF as a starting point.
The entry level MSI boards this generation have been 'lacklustre' by X570 standards (don't get me wrong, they'll probably run a 3950X no problem), but they heat up a lot vs the Asus and GB counterparts.
^ How's that Q9400 holding up? With today's apps?
Just to share: I've tried installing Win10 on an older 2 core Core2 a bit of a while back just to experiment since I thought an SSD alone would make Win10 usable for an older system.
Win10 pegged the CPU at 100% for a few minutes every time on...
AFAIK but I could be very wrong -- the 3600 is faster in some multithreaded scenarios because it has some additional AVX instructions that the 2700X doesn't.
For apples to apples comparison excluding these additional instructions, the 2700X still wins out I think in brute force multithreaded apps.
If you don't game, you can get the lower end P53 units with the 9750H and the T2000 for 1200-1300 when it goes on sale. The T2000 can do games at a lower resolution/lower graphical settings.
You can customize it to be dual channel out of the box (2x8GB) and plug in your own SSDs later.
I think it will really be slower than a 7700K at 4.9ghz unless you're running something that will heavily load up more than 4 threads.
Approximately Ryzen 3rd gen has about 10-15% more IPC than Sky/Kaby/Coffee but approximate operating speed will be around 4.2-4.3 max.
quick and dirty...
WDs, Crucials and Samsungs tend to get SSD sales from me depending on what I need, mostly for perceived reliability reasons. Haven't had the chance to try Intels yet but I wouldn't mind getting those as well.
I don't have a main group and after finishing the main story mode up to maybe wtier4, it started feeling to me like the grind it is.
Dark zone is also not my cup of tea so I'm guess im missing out on a bit of the unrepetitive replayability.
Will be waiting for reviews before picking this one...
Depends on the exact motherboard implementation.
The Crosshair 7 will do exactly this if you have an M2 in the top slot nearest the CPU.
It will take 4 lanes out of the X16, will drop the GPU to X8, and will have 4 lanes unused...
The Prism isn't bad. I have a few. Noise on the prism is caused by the fan constantly spinning up and down in direct response to temps.
If you manually smoothen out the fan curve to not be as responsive to temps, it should be fine. (IE instead of varying between 20 to 40% at low temps, I just...
I can 'see' an FPS difference outside the margin of error from 3200 C16 to 3200 C14 to 3600 C16 when I am benching with graphs/results, but can't feel the difference ingame.
I've currently OCed my RAM to 3600 16 20 20 20 40 timings.
+1 on this post.
AFAIK, a quick guide but is not always the case:
1 M2 and 4 SATA = B450
1 M2 and 6 SATA = X370/470
2 M2 and 6 SATA but GPU likely running at x8 = X370/470
2+ M2 and 6 SATA with GPU running at x16 = x570
2 in quick succession. I'm guessing something else is killing your board unless you got a super early bad batch. I've heard that Gigabyte has cleaned up their game for the X570 series.
A case short? Bad PSU?
Any way to customize this browser?
I'm trying to get tabs opened from one tab put at the very end and not after the current tab.
Firefox has this setting in about:config with a boolean called something like insertrelatedtabsaftercurrent.
So far though, I'm finding Edge snappier than FF (don't...
This may be a *whoosh* moment but:
I'm quite sure that guy knows a thing or two about testing and you may come across him around here one time or another.
I'm also guessing said reviewer isn't using one big 10GB file to test max throughput of 1gigabit links.
Z390s will work with the 8700K.
However I cannot ascertain at this time that the motherboard is the faulty device, or if it is the only one that is faulty.
Given how the 8700K is still very competitive, I'd suggest you stick with the Intel platform.
Technically, it's just a 72% NTSC monitor. Do you think this is a panel-specific issue or is can something this far off be a one off error?
Although at the store, the greens between the 3 monitors I viewed (1 had a stuck pixel, the other had a visible backlight from the edge of the display)...
Thanks. I'd do that as a last resort because it's difficult looking for someone with a calibrating tool here (not USA based).
If that doesn't work out, then I guess it's not really a big problem
Attaching a pic of how the screen looks like on the Asus and all the other monitors I've tried (VA...
Unfortunately, monitor does not have CMYK. Only RGB settings. It does have saturation though. Anything I can do at this point? I'm fine using drivers to adjust this as well.
Will paying someone to calibrate the monitor work? Although I've heard some apps/games don't really use the monitor icc...
