If you must buy a prebuilt, at least get it from iBuyPower. They show the full specs and you can customize what you want. Store prebuilts are so damn trash, they don't even tell you the ram speed, Mobo, PSU, or even what cooler it has. For all we know they cheaped out a fuck ton those and you end up with a PC that performs worse due to throttling and crappy components.

I specifically recommended the strategy based on predictions about the market in the future, not the past. Gains in ray/path tracing are going to be rapid compared to recent rasterisation improvements and market conditions are shaping up for prices to fall far more quickly than they have during the shortages of the last few years.

Are there any reliable rumors/leaks about Navi?

I've wanted to do a build with a CPU and CPU of the same brand for so long.
I just need AMD to get their fucking GPU shit together, and make something like a GTX 1080 for an amazing price or something that's better than a 1080 Ti, for me to be able to justify buying a GPU from them.

I'd like to be able to push 100-120FPS on a 3440x1440p monitor, while also going with the same brand for CPU and GPU for AESTHETIC.
>>
>>69764080
I voted for May because I'm trying to be optimistic and really want to do a new (hopefully full) AMD build for my birthday.
Although, I doubt Navi will be out around the same time or before Zen 2, and Radeon VII looks like a bad purchase for only video games.
>>

>>69764206
I'm holding my finger on the trigger on a 9900k system and I'm also considering waiting for either the 3700x or the 3850x.

How likely is it that the 3700x will outperform the 9900k in gaming?
>>
Is Ryzen 5 2600 good enough for streaming or will I need to shell out for Ryzen 7 2700?
>>
>>69764183
Sony's funding and working with AMD on Navi for the PS5. It's going to be 4k 60fps plus ray tracing and it will be relatively cheap.
>>
I have a 1600x. Is it shit now 2 years later?
>>
>>69764243
>How likely is it that the 3700x will outperform the 9900k in gaming?
Considering AMD showed a CPU at CES that isn't even fully finished our perform the i9-9900K, it's guaranteed.

The best part about that is, there's a lot of credible leaks that indicate the CPU that AMD used to barely beat the i9-9900K is not only slightly better, while requiring slightly less watts, BUT it's also likely a Ryzen 5 3600 or 3600X that they managed to do that with.

Fuck, stop giving me realistic information that drastically increases my hype.
I want to believe so fucking bad that you're right, but AMD's graphics division keeps disappointing.

If I can get a Navi GPU that's more powerful than a 1080 Ti for less than $700, I'll fucking cry tears of show.
>>
>>69764338
That was a synthetic benchmark utilizing all the cores though. How many cores did the AMD CPU at CES have?

Gaming will benefit more from high clocks on fewer cores.

>buying Nvidia

Driver hell is real on linux, gaymur pleb
>>
>>69764373
Even if the Ryzen 5 3600X is slightly worse than the i9-9900K for video games, it's going to cost $250 at the most.
That's a slightly worse performing CPU in video games for half the price.
Only a man child Incel shill would act like that isn't a big deal.

>>
>>69764394
>How many cores did the AMD CPU at CES have?
8-cores, 16-threads. Which is what the Risen 5 line is supposed to move to.
Ryzen 7 is supposed to be 12-cores, 24-threads.

So the Ryzen 5 3600X will likely be the best or second best (second to i9-9900K) CPU for video games, at only $200-$250.
>>
>>69764376
They only disappointed with the VII because they are so confident about their future stuff and they're happy to lower expectations now and blow everyone away at the end of the year. VII is literally a canceled project that they decided to release anyway to give more time to perfect Navi.
>>
>>69764500
That's what I've heard from the rumors, but AMD also fucked up with Vega, and they never managed to release a high-end RX 500 series GPU.
They haven't been able to release a decent high-end GPU at decent price for, what, over 4 years?
That's extremely concerning.
>>
>>69764547
No sense releasing uncompetitive stuff when you can go all out focus for something 5 years down the road that can dominate. Zen's just coming together now, hopefully Navi is the same.

>>
>>69764590
>No sense releasing uncompetitive stuff when you can go all out focus for something 5 years down the road that can dominate.
The thing that's wrong with that reasoning is that it's literally impossible for chip designers to plan that far ahead.
So there's no way that AMD avoided spending the money to make a good, high-end GPU for 5 years just because they thought they could spend that money to make an absolutely amazing high-end GPU years down the road.

>Zen's just coming together now, hopefully Navi is the same.
That's my hope, as well. Hopefully some of the money they made from Zen has been helping fund Navi, too.

>>69764658
Could they? Yes, company pull themselves out of the mud and ahead in the race after a few years all the time, especially in technology.
Will they? AMD obviously has a history of either failing on their own or getting screwed over by Intel or Nvidia, because AMD seems to refuse to fight dirty like them (which they hopefully will start to, if they ever take the lead far enough).

The real question is for people like you, why wouldn't YOU want that?
We need better competition in the GPU market. We FINALLY have it in the CPU market.
Even if you dick ride Intel or Nvidia, it only helps you, too, for AMD to become better than them because it'll for Intel and Nvidia to compete harder.

>>69766192
Buildzoid said some Asus TUF B450 is the best motherboard for APU overclocking.
So you'd want something like that.
I'll see if I can find a link to the exact mobo.
>>
>>69766192
>>69766239
Found it, this will likely be the best motherboard for APUs (CPUs with integrated GPUs), especially for overclocking.
It's not released, yet, but it should be released very soon.

Looks good! Could probably go cheaper on the HDD (Green) and the ram (intel isn’t as dependant on high speed ram as Ryzen). Swap the SSD to a M.2 and you’re done
>>
>>69765472
B-Die was only really important with Ryzen 1 where it was the only thing you could run consistently. Even then the benefit of fast RAM has been overstated. Outside of odd cases like Fallout 4 it's like a 5% difference. Go slightly above the price point of 2133 but absolutely don't spend a 90 euro premium on it, especially when you aren't already at the top tier of everything, I'd honestly rate it below upgrading case fans in terms of importance.

Really a dumb question but whatever.
Ever since I got these new fans on front intake (Replaced no-names with 3x Arctic P12 PST PWM) my computer sometimes makes these singing noises, almost like harmonics or something.
How the fuck do I fix that? It's only slightly louder than my HDD but sounds very weird, almost like wind singing through a narrow tunnel.
>>
>>69766404
For $80 more you can get a 27" or 32" 1440p 144Hz VA monitor so consider that.
>>
>>69766723
So long as you’re gaming at 1080p and don’t wanna upgrade sure. Personally I got the Acer and loving it.
>>
>>69766757
Did you screw your fans to the frame properly? Could be a small gap between the fan and the mount that’s having air squeezed through it, making that singing/whistling noise.
>>
I got my new pc today and I noticed a high pitched noise from my PSU when the computer is off. Is there any way to fix this or is it going to be a problem in the future? I can't find any info about this.
>>
This would be such a fun Micro-ATX APU build.

Does 8-cores serve any real benefit to most AAA games, over 4-cores?
>>
>>69764243
>How likely is it that the 3700x will outperform the 9900k in gaming?
It's iffy whether or not it'll match the 9900K in current games let alone beat it.
The vast majority of games dont benefit from more than 4 cores 8 threads and none need more than 6 cores 12 threads so it's not going to get any lead on the 9900K with more cores.
We only know how Zen 2 performs in cinebench which is a very memory agnostic workload.
The separate memory controller absolutely will increase latency to system memory, but we dont know how much and the larger cache will mitigate this somewhat and that'll somewhat depend on optimisation on the dev's part as well.
And we have no idea what clocks we can expect. We just have a drunken scottish leaker that claims he could somehow tell what the final clocks would be on products that were over half a year away and the stand alone fact that the 8 core at CES "wasnt final clocks" but that could also mean the clocks might be lower. We dont know anything basically. I expect something like 4.8GHz boost might be doable for 3rd gen with more on 7nm+, but that's just my personal speculation.
>>
Anyone know whats a good case similar to the h630? Moving from the states to the Eu to take care of family it would be to expensive to ship over.

And how would a 5Ghz 9900k compare to a 4.8Ghz 3700x?

Comparing 2700x and 9900k:
Normalized gaming performance:
9900k: 103
2700x: 77

5Ghz / 4.35Ghz = 1.15
1.15 * 77 * x = 103
x = 1.16

Which means, even if the 3700x has a 5Ghz clock, it needs to have at least 16% IPC improvement to beat the 9900k in games. Is such a thing possible?

>>
>>69767447
Nah not really although cant really speak for my opinion but my freind's unless your fans dont work its not worth the price
>>
>>69767438
it's possible with optimization for the larger cache.
Without optimizations I think Zen 2 will still generally have gains in IPC but it'll be less for memory latency sensitive workloads like gaming
>>
>>69767165
>>69767438
Given that the 3700X will likely cost $350, all it has to do is be 20% less powerful than the i9-9900K for it to be clearly worth it over the i9-9900K.
If it's any closer to the 9900K's power, you'd be an idiot to spend $500 on it.
Hell, it already isn't even really worth $500.

Plus, the rumored $500 Ryzen 9 looks like it will actually be better for video games than the 9900K.
Just choose to spend a retarded $500 on a fucking CPU later, rather than now.
It's not like this summer is that far away.

For screen tearing you need to activate fast vsync in the nvidia driver settings. (A better version of the regular vsync). Basically just vsync in general. Or a gsync/freesync monitor will help too. If you are running your games off the HDD that explains fps drops, anytime some data has to be loaded in the HDD will take forever.

>>69762804
Was it actually won or is it stolen? If it is legitimate, why not, if the CPU works it's fine. It's not like CPUs usually die and need the warranty. Although if the regular one is just 20 bucks more, I'd just get a brand new one.

You could shave $20 off and about 5% performance by dropping down to a 1600 or $60 off and a bit more performance by dropping to a 2200G for the processor and get an 8gb 580 if you're planning on upgrading your CPU eventually anyway.

Exactly. There is no reason to.

Sure it is free except because of idiots like you who go off getting free replacements for working hardware, manufacturers include this cost into the initial product price. What do you think happens with that hardware, they can't sell it for the full price as unused anymore, someone has to take a loss.

Why would anyone assume that a drive that reports 2TB written to is faulty? Jesus christ people. It is logical to assume that some process/application has actually written 2TB.

It is not helpful either since in a few weeks the guy will be back saying that the new SSD also shows too many writes. It's a waste of time and effort to replace the SSD.

Looks ok, the 580 is good enough for casual 1080p gaming, but perhaps make sure that the display support freesync so you don't get problems at lower framerates. In newer games you won't get high fps with that card so that will be helpful. Or try to get a used 1080 instead, then you won't have any issues with framerates to begin with.

Also you could switch to M2 SSDs, you could get a 500GB or 1TB Crucial P1. It does 1.6GB/s writes. Costs only a few bucks more, 20 bucks actually for the 1TB version. The mainboard needs to support PCIe M2. Might also be called NVMe M2 instead, that is essentially the same thing.

Even if you don't get any M2 SSD at all, it can't hurt to have at least one PCIe M2 slot on the mainboard. In a few years prices will be so low that this will be the default option and then you might want to get one.
>>
>>69769904
i'm not particularly interested in M2 slots because it's only room for one SSD on any mini ITX board
of course if i can find better GPUs i'd rather have those, and the monitor does have freesync, i made sure of that
>>
>>69769862
What software are you people running?

I have 7TB of writes and that's for a full year of running 24/7 on a 500GB SSD.
>>
>>69769943
I overlooked that it is mini ITX. I guess you have to accept some drawbacks with that form factor. Still, if you can find a board with at least one such M2 slot... otherwise you'll always be limited to SATA speeds (except for some PCIe cards and such that might not fit into a small form factor case to begin with). If you replace your mainboard or entire system in 2-3 years that might be fine, but if you tend to keep a system for at least 5 years, you might regret not having that speed in the future.

Okay, with freesync that is fine. The card will play everything at 60fps, just not with ultra graphics in all games.
>>
>>69764362
No one paid you any attention so I'll just so it looks good, but do you need that 2TB HDD? You could get another 500GB SSD for basically the same money.

>>
>>69769976
ultra graphics are a meme for the most part in modern games, lower settings can look just as good
the main reason i want an SSD is for loading time in game development/working with music (lower preload sizes mean less RAM used for loading sample libraries and faster loading and not having to freeze as many tracks) and boot-up time, so i don't see much reason to need M2 speeds unless i get some absolutely batshit insane one in a million use case
thanks for the tip though because i didn't really think about M2 slots
>>
>>69769572

Nvm, fixed it.
>>
>>69770057
It's just that I made the mistake before that I got a nice mainboard that had all I wanted at the time and just 2 or 3 years later I realized it was missing at least two crucial things (one of them being M2 slots, it had none, they were not common yet, only in the more expensive ones). Thankfully I was able to sell that entire platform (older DDR3) and built an entire new one asap that I based on a board that has everything I could possibly ever want during its lifetime. I thought it was overkill and now I am even using the thunderbolt header...
>>
>>69770097
scratch that i had another look at the store pages for the asrock board i picked and it does, in fact, have "1 Ultra M.2" slot, so i'll probably consider that for the sample library drive since that'll be the biggest load
some sample libraries can be like 400GB in size when it gets extreme

Although it doesn't have the highest endurance due to being a QLC drive. If you fill it up and delete it every day or month, as in using it as a scratch disk, then better not get that one.

well how did you fix it?

>>69762966
Around a low end 4c4t ryzen.

>>69770419
I don't use them at the same time. I usually have 1 video running at any given time.
about 50 active 4chan tabs from different boards that I can quickly hop from.
about 50-100 interesting articles to read about new research papers and so on. like 10-20 tabs of videos I either plan to watch, or watch regularly, the rest is usually filled with new things and so on.
Again actively I have only about 40-60 tabs open.

That is fine then, the endurance rating still allows to fill the entire drive over 100 times. It's really not much compared to non-QLC drives, but it's good for everything where the data is static and won't change a lot.

But truth be told, I sat on the "caution" sign for like 4 months until I got a new drive and in that time It didn't get worse in terms of uncorrectable sectors. But oh well.

you need premium B-die ram and manually tightening the timings on the ram if you want to somewhat salvage the latency issues in videogames.

get the cheapest SSD that offers the size you want. Performance differences are negligible There you go.

The Blue and and Black are ok mid tier drives, just rebranded Sandisks. Green is DRAMless cancer.
>>
>>69770607
It's just not necessary. For all scenarios that you would want to use it in I can list you multiple things that you can improve first. And by the time you have a big ass noctua air cooler or even a custom water cooling loop, your temperatures are low enough that you won't need it anymore.

It would help already if people put on regular thermal paste thinner than they usually do (one tiny blop in the middle and let the cooler pressure do the rest). Usually people give away those few degrees of difference with that mistake.

Any idea on the ryzen3 release dates?

Their new gfx card has tested pretty underwhelmingly meaning I'll probably have to stick to a 2070 for my new build.

Expecting to spend around €1600+ for a new machine.

I'm thinking matx, quiet, no case windows as it's going to sit beside the TV and I'm gaming on the TV (b7 oled).

I'm essentially waiting on a good deal for the 2070 and then I'll start the build. If ryzen3 is going to be q3 I might just go ahead with either the 2700x or the 8700k
>>
>>69765436
It’s a good motherboard with great OCing abilities, if you ever need to squeeze some extra performance. Also, it’ll easily support Ryzen 2 so say in 2-3yrs time if you wanted a cheap upgrade grabbing a second hand Ryzen 3700 would breathe new life into the system.

Otherwise you can save $50 and grab this https://www.microcenter.com/product/5002573/amd-ryzen-5-2600x-with-wraith-spire-cooler,-msi-b450m-pro-vdh-cpu---motherboard-bundle

OR put that $50 towards a better bundle and get the same board but with a 2700

All new it comes in at under $900. Can save some money if you’re cool with second hand cards (lots of good 1060 6gb out there with the 2060 out now, and it still performs like a beast at 1080p)
>>
>>69771601
You could drop the extra $35 to boost it up to a 2600x and get the better fan with it to make it a flat $900. Otherwise add whatever aftermarket cooler you want (212 evo is always a good option)

Right now I'm just in the exploratory phase, and I understand that by the time I've saved up the last bit of money I need for it some of the prices will change, but I want to get a rough idea of what I can get.

>$1500 USD
>32GB RAM
>Gaming, Heavily modded games
>for the above, I want to have a lot of capability to "overpower" how unoptimized games with a lot of mods tend to be
>want a 1440P 144hz monitor with this
>lowest priority, but any extra budget should go to ssd's or large capcity, high speed HDDs

For some context, here are my current specs.
I've been long overdue for a new build, haha.
>>
when will mommy lisa launch ryzen 3xxx bros
my 2500K platform starts shitting the bed
>>
>>69771635
I got almost the same set up as you. Neat.
First grab a cheap SSD (Kingston 250g for instance. Like $15-20) and throw it in that PC so you can sell it off later.

Secondly, https://pcpartpicker.com/list/4DCgfH
I’d probably opt for a 1080ti as those 11gb will be useful with heavy modded games. They can be found on eBay for relatively cheap (and don’t Tend to be flogged around by miners).
>>
Lads, I need some ideas.
I replaced the GPU thermal paste with Noctua Nt-H1.
Instantly I had a 5-7 degree drop from the maximum temperatures under max load.
But over the course of 1-2 months the temps have creeped back up to their original temperatures. It's not going up in temp further than the original stock thermal paste, but it's confusing why I am getting this kind of result.
Ideas, theories?
>>
I just want to do a small upgrade to keep gaming at 1080p/60fps in modern games until the next generation of GPUs comes out before I upgrade to 1440p/144hz. How much risk is there in buying a used 980ti or 1070 from eBay? Never bought used parts before.
>>
>>69771832
Thank you. Since it's not immediate, I'll keep my eyes on ebay listings for a while to see if I can get a good deal
Any rough price you'd recommend I should pull the trigger on a used 1080ti?
>>
>>69771601

Thanks for the recomendations, i'm kinda out of the loop but what are the advantages of the m2 ssds over a sata ssd for half the price?
>>
>>69771832
And I noticed on that list there's no cooler, so I'm assuming you recommend the stock cooler for the ryzen 7 would be sufficient?

The "Master Chief's jockstrap" look is actually really in vogue right now.
>>
>>69771968
I’m an Aussie so I’m not too clear on good price for US, but I got mine for $740 delivered to my door by the guy with 2yrs warranty left. To me that was good as the market here was seeing them around 800-1000.
>>69772013
Unless you’re OCing the stock Ryzen 7 cooler is actually pretty beastly. Can act as a placeholder that can hold its own too if later down the track you want to OC, and you can swap it out for a strong AIO (keep in mind the Meshify is kinda small and you’ll probably have to mount any AIOs on the top).
>>69772011
For all intents and purposes the biggest advantage is just a cleaner build; it plugs straight into your mobo; no cords no fuss. NvME is faster but you’ll most likely not notice unless you’re working with very large files. If the straight SSD is half the price then go for it, you’d be silly not to. But here (Aus) the M2 formats tend to either be cheaper or only a few bucks dearer than the 2.5” formats.

>>69771635
I would keep that CPU for now (RAM too, no use in wasting money on new DDR3 now, 16GB will be ok for a while longer) and only upgrade the graphics card right away. Get at least a used 1080 or a 2070 for 1440p, better a used 1080ti, it's good enough for 4K and plenty for 1440p for the next few years really.

Also add a 1TB SATA SSD, you can switch that and the graphics card over to a new system in 2-4 years when the CPU and RAM start to drag down performance.

But you have a fast quadcore, new CPUs have a bit higher clockspeed (so better single core performance, which would be useful in some games specifically, like Factorio) as well as 2 or 4 more cpu cores. Games will often use up to 4 cores, but not many will use 6 (Hitman 2 and other modern ones) and few will use 8 (x-plane, but that's more a simulation than a game, Star Citizen and that is not a game, no idea if it will ever be).

So 4 cores >3.5GHz is a solid basis for gaming for at least another year or two.

what

I think I’m gonna do the first bundle you linked. What do I need to plug the m.2 I’m getting into that?

>>69772955
Literally nothing. That’s one of the benefits of M.2. You just slot it in, screw it down in place and wa la.

Pic related; red and blue are where they sit, Green and yellow are the things you plug it into. You’ll want to use the red one iirc (main M.2 slot).
>>
>>69769542
>About that...pic related
Yeah but my point is still there. It's free to replace it and you get a new hard drive with literally 0 data written on it. Also, about the image, use clonezilla, so if your system is installed on that SSD, when you replace it, you won't have to reinstall everything, just apply the image with clonezilla.
