ATTENTION: Graphics card prices are excessive by historical standards; therefore, consumers should delay or completely forgo any midrange to high end graphics card purchases. The gouging has two root causes: lack of market competition and shortage/"new normal" pricing during the mining hayday.

Thoughts on this?

Pic is my current PC. All the games I play on it run really well (1080p 60fps) with no problems. I want to try playing at 1080p 144hz. Will this be fine for that? Also I want a NVIDIA card for NVENC. My budget is around $1000 but I'm trying to keep it on the lower side. Prices are from micro center and if everything is good I'll probably go buy everything this Friday.
(re-post from last thread cause I posted right before the new thread showed up)

Thanks guys!
>>
>>72702840
I would consider the 3600 it's worth the price increase, it's a really solid cpu
I'm not crazy about that case but that's just preference really

I'm working on some personal projects which need a lot of data processing/data mining and it's getting to the point that some CPU intensive take over a week to complete, so I'd like to upgrade. I've been waiting on the 3950x, but would a Threadripper make sense in my case? I'd like my stuff to get done faster since I'm still learning by trial and error, but I'd also like to be able to work on more than one thing at a time. Both would be a significant step up since I'm still using a 4790k, but I'm wondering if I'd be justified going the Threadripper route or if it just seems attractive to me because it's looks to be top of the line (consumer grade top of the line anyway) but would be complete overkill. I grew up on macs so I don't know much about hardware.

So I'm looking to build an absolute dick kicker of a top tier build. 1440p 144+HZ gaming on ultra settings. Is NVlink/SLI still a thing to invest in? I am willing to throw thousands at such a build.
>>
>>72703287
sli is fully dead, in some games it gives worse performance than a single card
you probably want one of the upcoming processors, 9900kys, 3950x, or threadripper 3 if you are going monstrous, all coming soon
the evga 2080 ti kingpin is your gpu
or you could wait until next year when 3000 launches
>>
>>72703395
Yea I'm looking to build now as opposed to later. As for SLI/NVlink, reviews show it somewhat favorably depending on the game especially in 4K. If that's the case I'd be willing to upgrade to a top notch 4K panel.

if you're doing 1440p or 4k, CPU performance will be the same in games, all GPU bound.
3950x will kick the shit out of every CPU when it's released later this month, and depending how long you want to JustWait(tm) threadripper will even moreso

> evga 2080 ti kingpin

Not that anon but the kingpin feels like its more for tweaking than actual game usage. You can get away with just getting the base 2080 ti black since all 2080 ti's will autoboost.

If you want strictly gaming, I'd say 9900k or even a 9700k based on the gamers nexus benchmarks.

Well shit, man you said one workload takes a week.
Most shills will tell you that you rathert shave off 5min off your video rendering than have better fps in video games but that's entirely false for majority of people that don't either do those kind of work loads or do them sparingly so they save very little amount of time over the long period.
In your case, if what ever shit you are doing actually scales with more cores(check this), then it sounds like getting shitloads of cores is good for you and jusitified.
Unless you also want to play video games a lot on it...

Your 750Ti may have run on the motherboard alone, right? So yeah your 8 pin connector might just not work on the PSU. And again, could just be the GPU.
If a local shop will test it for free, that works.

>>72703883
5700. Better perf/watt and will likely gain more perf with driver updates whereas Turing is mostly already pretty optimized.
At least I'm expecting RDNA to age like GCN did. GCN aged better than any GPU had. But if you don't feel the same, then it's just literally down to preference when they cost the same so pick one.

Ignore the old games psyops. Nvidia has just as many problems with old games unless you're using an old GPU and Windows XP with it.

Here. With a 1TB SSD instead of HDD, and 35% more powerful GPU, for only $50 more.
>https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JK6txG
Yeah, the CPU might bottleneck the GPU in some games, but when 3600s go on sale for really cheap you can upgrade then and sell your 1600. It won't be a serious deal, might just get like 10 or 15% lower FPS in some games than you could have with a 3600.
The 2600 is only like 7% better than the 1600 IIRC.

You can stick with the 1660Ti but get a better and cheaper one. That one is shit and overpriced.
This assumes you have a 1080p@144 monitor already.

>>72704061
He said 1440p@144 though. You need LN2 for that. I already gave him the build.

>He said 1440p@144 though. You need LN2 for that. I already gave him the build.
I'm the guy who was asking for that build. And no, you don't need LN2 for dual 2080Ti's and a 9900k, you're seriously mistaken.

Also I changed it up to 4k 100FPS instead

Huh. It's almost like all these reviewers are using basic bitch air cooled FE cards for their testing and would you look at that! The vast majority of their games at 4K are showing 100+ frames! Hmm. It's almost like you have no idea what the fuck you're talking about you smarmy cunt. I'll move on with my build regardless.

>cherry picking paid marketing reviews that left out the games which get under 100fps
lol wow people are actually this stupid and easily manipulated. Like you found those articles and ACTUALLY believe you can run every game at 4k@100 because you can in 5 games cherry picked by Nvidia's marketing team.

Metro gets under 35fps at 4k with a 2080Ti. NVLink is not 2:1 scaling so it's not going to magically get 300% the performance with 200% the GPUs. Especially not if there is a CPU bottleneck. You won't even get 200% performance, as your own cherry picked tests show. You get about +65% when it actually works, almost +90% in strange brigade but with terrible stutters.
Same deal in Control, dips to 35fps. You aren't going to get 300% scaling with 2 GPUs so you aren't getting 100fps

Imagine being so wrong yet so sure you're right. It's hilarious. I wonder what other things you've been hilariously misinformed into believing based on marketing that's easily deciphered by most 85+ IQ people.

Can you guys help me understand PCIe 4 SSDs? Are SSD speeds actually limited by PCIe bandwidth? Because the Samsung 970 Pro is rated at 3.500/2.700 MB/s read/write speeds and uses MLC. The Corsair MP600 claims 4.950/4.250 MB/s speeds using TLC while being much cheaper.
How legit are these numbers? Are the speeds claimed by Corsair even possible using TLC or are they using a very fast cache with speeds rapidly declining once it's full?

I've only ever had laptops so I don't know much about cooling (or anything else for that matter), what type of cooling will I need?
From the looks of it I'm getting a R5 2600 CPU (comes with "Wraith Stealth Cooler") and RX 570 8GB GPU.
>>
>>72704521
Depends on games. RX 570 runs most games maxed at over 60. But some games you have to turn down to "high".
a 580 runs even more maxed, and only the most unoptimized shit has to be turned down to high.
a 1660 or 590 will run all but like 10 games maxed at 60+.
For those 10 shit games like Control, I think you need at least a 5700 or 2060 super to run at 60fps @ 1080p. But those GPUs are massive fucking overkill for 99.9999% of games at 1080p@60 and a waste of money.

So as long as you don't play shit games, I'd say anywhere from RX 570, to 590/1660.

Those numbers are one of about 100 numbers you can measure SSD performance with. It's a number you'll only see when transferring a large file from one SSD to another SSD of equal speeds.
I don't even know what the bottleneck for load times is. I presume it has more to do with decompression done on the CPU and such. The 970 evo has much higher read/write speeds than the MX500, and 19k iop/s versus 12k of the MX500, yet their windows and game load times are 99.5% the same. Even the optane 900p doesn't load shit faster despite much lower latency and higher iop/s.

As far as PCIe 3.0 limiting SSD performance, sure it does. Of course it does. 2x the bandwidth is 2x the bandwidth. What are you even asking?

I was under the assumption that currently NVMe SSD speeds are limited by the actual flash memory, not bottlenecked by bandwidth. But if I understand this right, the only reason the 970 Pro is slower is because it's speed is limited by PCIe 3?

Thanks for backing me up on what I was already saying unnecessarily. Even though anyone could have just googled it if they doubted the statement.

>New consoles are getting a significantly different arch, considering they purportedly have built in ray tracing cores
Adding a small ASIC at the top of each cluster does not a significantly different architecture make. Turing is nearly the same as Volta, save for that it has what's essentially an ASIC in each SM to detect and cache BVH intersections. RDNA v2 is going to be a less significant architecture change than Tahiti to Polaris, Polaris to Vega, or Vega to Navi, were. Pascal to Volta was a big change, but Volta to Turing was minor changes just as I said it'd be a year before it was unveiled.
You know nothing of microarchitectures.

It's also likely that the ray tracing in RDNA2 will be too weak to be add worthwhile effects, and too weak to run well, just as it is in the 2080Ti. So it's meaningless for GAMES. Come back in 2023 if you want to compare ray tracing in games and who runs it better. Until then I won't even give a shit if the 6800 XT or whatever the fuck does ray tracing 3 times better and faster than the 2080Ti. It's m e a n i n g l e s s as 3x shit is still shit. Only matters for non-realtime rendering at the moment.

>>72704997
3500U is pretty weak. It's just 4c/4t. I'd really shoot for 4c/8t minimum as it has better perf/watt in multithreading for AMD.
Also make sure the memory is dual channel, especially if you want to play games.
$530 is a decent price for those specs, though, I think.

You should do independent research instead of taking an anon's word for it, but yes Intel is in a terrible spot lately. They're basically Bulldozer now, if you remember that.

Since you have a 144hz monitor, r5 3600 is a good choice. You could go a little overkill with the 3700X, but for most games it makes like less than a 2% difference in framerates.
If you're playing stuff like newer Cryengine games like Star Citizen, the 3700X can be worthwhile, though.
Don't make the mistake of getting slow as shit ram this time. 1333CL9 is really bad with 1866 being pretty standard high performance tier of that era.

Read the FAQ in the previous thread. You'd have an important warning about not using QLC in a main drive there. That drive is a HDD replacement, not for use as a main drive.
Your PSU is way higher wattage than you need. That build would run on 400W, but it wouldn't hurt to go 550 or so. 700 is too much and will have poor efficiency.

Since I'm just getting the 3 components I don't mind spending a bit more. 3700X isn't that badly priced it doesn't seem, although yeah a good $130 more, that would be the mobo right there.

You said that Turing is already optimized; of course if Turing is still getting recent optimizations there's no reason to think that it won't continue to be optimized for, and in fact it will, as engines get things like asynchronous compute and take advantage of split FP16 and FP32.

>RDNA v2 is going to be a less significant architecture change than Tahiti to Polaris
Tahiti to Polaris was a long time, but it will likely be as big as Vega to Navi.

>Among other things, it states that aging GCN is well optimized in today's game titles and game engines, which is lost if AMD starts from scratch with RDNA. The first generation is therefore a way to prepare the market for a future iteration of RDNA, which is described as a "pure" variant of RDNA.

Depends on the headset. Certain headsets don't work well with Navi. For the mainstream ones though, yeah.

I'm not sure which of the cheap X570 boards are good to go with. I think ASRock.
Gigabyte went down the shitter a few years ago and makes some of the worst products all around.
ASUS has really shitty BIOS issues with X570. Maybe they'll be fixed in a couple of weeks or months, but who knows.
MSI's cheap boards have really poor VRMs.
So yeah I'd say ASRock for cheap X570 boards.

You can get a decent b450 board like the steel legend, mortar, or tuf pro and update the BIOS if you have a means to or can buy from a local store with BIOS updated for the new CPUs, too.

>>72705358
>My 290X still rocks.
And you paid how much for it? Because a 5700 is over 2x its performance at less than half the power consumption. That's pretty good progress at its current price.
$50 cheaper would be nice, and it'll get there on sales, but expecting lower than that like some trolls do is complete delusion. Retailers, AMD, and board partners all need to make their cut of profits or it would be pointless to make and sell them to begin with.

>Because a 5700 is over 2x its performance at less than half the power consumption.
According to the other thread, 5700XT uses ~200w at just over 1Ghz.
That's 290X power consumption.
So It doesn't appear to be any better at all in performance per watt, despite a 28nm vs 7nm difference.
Secondly, it's less than double performance - a 290/390 (nonX) to a 5700XT is almost double, but no where near double for a 290X/390X.
Lastly - 290X still does everything a 1440p/60 - so why pay double the price of my 290X for a GPU that's not even double the performance 4 years later?

I'm not upgrading for the sake of upgrading AMD, despite your demands that I do - so mr. shill - take off.

>>72705092
If you aren't wanting a 9700k or 9900k for top level gaming performance then AMD is a better position.

>>72705500
Not him, however in terms of performance per watt, the 5700 is significantly better than the 290X. Think about it: almost twice the perf for the same or less wattage. Most of that improvement can be chalked up to a better node, but there are also architectural improvements in the latest iteration of GCN called RDNA (Navi).

You are correct in that you don't need to upgrade yet, so don't. And you are also correct that in terms of historical standards, the 5700 has provided a rather mediocre to poor improvement in value.
>>
>>72705500
>According to the other thread, 5700XT uses ~200w at just over 1Ghz.
Clearly lying. It barely uses that at nearly 2GHz.
It also has over roughly 60% increase in performance per clock. At 1900MHz, it performs like a 290X at 3000MHz+.

The 7970 and 290 were the best GPUs relative to the time they were released in the last decade, clearly. Comparing to those releases is a really high bar, and unfair. Navi is still the best new GPU release, for its price and relative to the time it was released, SINCE then.
>>
>>72705422
yeah I figured they were shit because they only support DP 1.2 which doesn't carry HDR. I'm seeing that HDR can cause some input delay by up to 8 frames do you know anything about that?

Yes they are man. More heatpipes, more fins, more fans means you dont have to spin 1 turbine at massive RPM to get the same results.
Do you not understand basics of heat transfer or something?

>In sff PCs blower cards are more efficient, quieter, and basically better in every way
Depends on the case layout, if you put a PSU to block off the fans, then yes it will perform worse, some have the GPU fans pointing to the bottom of the case where there is a dust filter and the PSU is moved somewhere else.

>Don't use open air cards unless you have really good airflow in your case because they can heat up the inside of a PC enough to damage the other componants
Depends on how much power the gpus consume. If it's 100W then anything can deal with that.
At 200W and above you should have some airflow in the case and at 300W blowers literally die, while open cards just dump a lot of heat into the case which can be managed with case fans.

Is this like an elaborate joke or something? based on the pic I imagine that person was somekind of marketer or something?

Guys I'm making a ton of money and want to upgrade my rig. I'm rocking a 4th gen i5 and 1070 founders edition. Should I just do a customer water cooling loop in this and go for a pre-blocked 2080 ti?

3600 vs 3600x

if I was going to go for a medium overclock, would it be worth it to get the higher clock speed and supposedly slightly better cooler?

or just drop the $40 on an aftermarket cooler

>>72705886
at that price range, you might as well go with Intel 9900k, no?

>microatx
whyfor
>>
>>72705885
That guy invented chocolate

In the first two videos people express their shock at the blowers being quieter under load

Consider this. A blower takes air from the lower part of the case, usually right next to an intake, and blows hot air out the back.
An open air card takes air from inside the case and puts it... Into the case...

I was very surprised at this myself but multiple reputable tech YouTubers and using real world testing by putting them into cases instead of a test bench shows that blowers are very efficient. Watch the second video, by putting the blower to 60% power it kept good temps, didn't throttle, and was quieter than the open air cooler whilst not cooking the rest of the components
>>
>>72705886
Drop the slow 660p drives for Samsung 970's or WD Blacks.
>microatx with a glass front panel
wat
If you want a small case then get one of Fractal's small cases with mesh front panel. Meshify C Mini, Focus G Mini or Fractal Core 1000. That said I'd just get a normal case like a Meshify S2 especially if you want to do a custom loop.

>>72705720
If you aren't overclocking it, yeah. It's such a low power card that the blower is fine.
Literally not a single reviewer complained about the 5700 blower (except for gamers nexus general hate). All the complaints about noise were centered on the XT that runs much hotter.
>>72705769
What are your options?
The Red Dragon is nice for only $10 more in the US, if you can find it in stock. But I've seen blowers on sale for $330 which makes it a $30 difference.

At the point in which I replied with the 1600 recommendation, he did say video editing ...
And even for pure gaming, it's not a side grade. You get better frametimes with the 1600. That's a benchmark warrior psyops meme. In the real world, people leave their browsers and shit running in the background when they game.

>>72705886
>intel 660p for main drive
>it has intel right in the name so I trust it!
I'd also get faster RAM if you're doing a high end build. You should be looking to overclock memory to 3800CL17 or so, and set FCLK to 1900 if your silicon lottery and cooling allows it.

And yeah, I'd do custom. Other than the main SSD and mediocre RAM for something high end, build looks fine.
Get something like the Addlink S70 for main drive and change your secondary drive to 4TB.

>>72705939

I meant 60% fan speed on the blower

the open air cooler needed to be run at 95% fan speed to maintain it's clock without thermal throttling

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiDZNT7mxLQ

here is the video proving it. in fact a blower in an mitx case led to better thermals for the CPU than an open air GPU in a full atx case.

If blowers were bad, then GPU companies wouldn't use them

i am building a 3700x + 2080 rig and am real confused about freesync and g sync monitors.

what benefit do they really have that v sync didn't already offer? would it be worth $100 more to try gsync over freesync?

i may order both of these and after calibrating see what one i like more, but i really don't know what benefit these are giving over vsync and why i should use either
>>
>>72707035
They have adaptive sync, no tearing at variable refresh rates, v-sync is supposed to be a locked framerate and I think can affect performance.
As for gsync vs freesync, freesync works with either brand, gsync is nvidia only, don't know if one is better than the other or anything.
If you're going to get both test it out and do tell, I'd like to know what the difference is too.

vsync can add 100ms of input lag, depending on the game.

i9 9900k with 2070 super or 3900x with 5700xt. Which spec is better for streaming POE on Twitch? TY sir.
>>
>>72707173
It's hard to say. I only see one video of someone with a 9900k, and it's in act 1 in the absolute least stressful area of the game.
There's 2 zen2 ones, but they were a month ago and people were getting half the FPS as with zen1. Some devs have zen2 and said fix was coming in 3.8.0 but no one bothers to test how things are when it's working fine. There was dozens posting about the issue, but people stop posting about it since the update. So no indication of how good of FPS people are getting now and how it compares to the 9900k, but the 3900X is better for streaming.

As far as GPU, don't know. Generally the 5700XT is better value, but for that specific game people just don't test it.

If you can avoid it, I'd say buying an overpriced GPU on the far end of a node's lifespan would be a big mistake. 7nm 3080Ti is going to be a big improvement.
For that matter, 2 GPUs often doesn't increase performance in a lot of applications. Like Davinci Resolve only gives like a 15% performance uplift IIRC. But if you're sure that dual GPU scales well for your application, then go for it.

>>72707397

Yeah that's what I'm thinking, but no one knows when that will be released right? I don't know if it's worth the wait. Two 2080TIs would give me about 4x the performance of my 1080 gives me now.

Dont spend $430 on the 2060 ti for just game emulation. RTX ON is not enabled for many emulations, so I would just go with a cheaper 10-series alternative. Or, if you really want a 2060 ti, you can find them for $330 new on ebay.

If you're gonna upgrade to a threadripper, you should definitely upgrade to a beefy air cooler. You can't go wrong with one of the bigger Noctua coolers, or one of the bigger Be Quiet! Coolers.

They're only better in some custom loops, but those run you over $300 easily, and a lot of times still can't outperform air coolers.

>>72707496
>you might be stuck with the next Titan instead which costs more.
Alright, maybe I should just go with a single 2080TI for the time being and buy two 3080TIs whenever they will be released. I have colleagues who can pick up my 2080 by then. The current gen Titan doesn't look like it's built for my applications, it isn't even close to the same performance two 2080TIs would give me, so I'm not holding out hope for the next one.

One is power draw from the PSU, if your PSU has it, use two different 8 pin connections, not a daisy chain cable into a single connection on the psu.
The other is apparently a downclocking issue with a potential solution being:
>Go into Wattman and choose the custom profile. Over at the Memory section click on "STATE 1" and select "Set as minimum state". This prevents the HBM from downclocking itself to 167 MHz which appears to be the cause of the instability.
>>72707732
Do they have any older 2.5" Sata SSD's available, like an 860 Evo? They should be getting to costs as low as HDD's.
>>
Well I definitely did mess up on exchange rates. Goodbye lovely $714 price tag, hello >$1000.

I have a shit cooler, but a shit one that is better than the stock intel or stealth AMD wraith and a 660.
Is a 3400G build faster using the vega iGPU or is the 660 still better? I also have an HD7970, I want to build two PCs. I guess the 7970 is better.
If the 660 and 7970 are better than the iGPU, should I go AMD or Intel? I don't think I will be upgrading these with better CPUs.

rx 5700xt + 3600 , 1080p 144hz or 1440p 144hz?
mostly for gaming, AAA games like the witcher 3, ac odyssey etc.
>>
>>72707789
660 is faster than the 3400G iGPU. 3400G iGPU is more on the level of 750ti when overclocked.

>>72707825
1440p. Not all games will run at 144fps even at 720p, so you're better off enjoying the better quality. Plus you can just upscale from 1080p to 1440p with RIS/CAS. 1080p is pointless except for ultra poorfaggery.

I bought a Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 4GB for PS3 emulation and I have a black screen with Demon's Souls
Why? I have the latest W10 update, latest drivers.
It sucks, on Ubuntu I have something relate to LLVM 8.0 I have but cannot get the 9.0 as it asks me to have
Feels ban man...
>>
>>72707871
You should have vulkan installed right? Pretty sure it comes with AMD drivers.
idk ask RPCS3 forums. That's a really specific question

also don't use latest drivers. Use the latest STABLE drivers, not the new optional/beta ones.
>>
>>72707788
welp. i hope you got the gst paid on the invoice because you're gonna get a $100 bill if not.
>>
>>72707778

I didn't daisy chain it but solution 2 sounds like what could've been an easy fix. Unfortunately I RMA'd it already because fuck dealing with broken products, spent enough time figuring this shit out already.
Does the 5700/XT have any issues of some sorts? I heard drivers are fucked?
>>
>>72707904
I hadn't put the order in yet, but even if I had I'm pretty sure it tells you the currency it's in at checkout.
>>
>>72707913
Navi doesn't have the ms power spiking issue of Vega. But the drivers are still beta as they are when a new architecture is launched.
>>
>>72707884
I do have the latest normal ones. Will try Vulkan later after work
I used to crash but that was before I install DOOM and W2TNC so it should work now
thanks
How far you think it can push it with my GPU? 1080p?
>>
looking to upgrade from my 760 to a 1070
will my 4770k bottleneck the 1070?
>>
>>72707932
Well, sounds like we're still in the "just wait"-phase. Not gonna go team green because 2060S seems like the inferior card aside from memetracing, which that card can't even handle at decent settings. Man I shoulda just kept my 570, now I'm stuck with this almost decade old card until mindfactory gets their shit together.
>>
>>72707846
but it depends on the frames ill get no?
I mean if ill get lets say 70-80 fps with 5700xt + 3600 i think ill be better off with a 60hz monitor.
>>
>>72707959
memetracing is irrelevant until someone creates some universal DLLs to drag-&-drop with the executables and just werks
>>
>>72707959
As far as I can tell, Navi driver issues arent' that bad at the moment.
Most major issue left seems to be reporting errors (reporting last voltage it was at before dropping to low power state) and just general wattman fan speed reporting issues.
I haven't seen significant crash or green color corruption issues lately. But yeah it'll probably be weeks still before the Navi driver is no longer beta.

>>72707955
4770k and 1070 are fairly evenly matched.

>>72707978
No, you should always have adaptive sync for gaming

>>72707986
and until there is a 10x more powerful card to run it acceptably without hideous artifacts all over the place.
>>
RX 480 8GB or RX 570 8GB? how cool do they run? did any of you undervolt it?
>>
>>72707926
No what I mean is that if your purchase is worth over $1000 in Australian currency, you're going to get slugged with an additional GST fee when the goods come into the country.
If the goods are under $1000 in Australian currency and the importer has registered for GST then the GST will be on the invoice and you're okay.
If the goods are under $1000 in Australian currency AND the importer hasn't registered for GST (which many won't because they don't give a shit about Australian tax law, or they only sell under $75k a year to Australia), you're also going to get that GST bill.
If you've spend $1050 and there's no GST on the invoice your goods are going to get held up at customs until you pay their Gerry Harvey Norman extortion, which is $105 and may have fees attached to it.
>>
>>72707846
>. 1080p is pointless except for ultra poorfaggery.

It is not ultra poorfaggotry. No need for name calling.
>>
>>72708059
Well shit I'll avoid international then, I was only leaning that way because it looked like it'd be cheaper.
>>
>>72708121
It used to be a lot cheaper, in the late 2000's & early 2010's we hit parity with the USD and that meant you could import at the much lower US prices and save huge amounts of money AND there was no GST on anything under $1000 or anything labelled GIFT (and customs weren't really interested in personal parcels in this fashion anyway).
Now we're fucked because Gerry Harvey had a sook because his shitty overpriced garbage wasn't selling any more and the Libs kowtow to anyone willing to bribe them with enough donation cash.

Open air coolers are bad unless you have a VERY well ventelated and large case, stop running tests on open benches

Building a mini itx, the case I want is forcing me to use liquid cooling for the cpu because 99% of fans are too tall for it.

Any suggestions/recommendations/tweaks?

spend a little bit more and get a 1600 or 2600.

>>72708653
just get a noctua low profile cooler and for the love of god ditch the shitty 5400rpm hdds. You should be able to afford a decently sized 2.5" or m.2 Sata SSD and a 7200rpm HDD.

Also considering the better cooler, is it worth getting a 3600x for $310 over a 3600 for $235?
>>
flashing shouldn't be this stressful...
>>
>>72709556
They're almost identical, the x is better in pretty much nothing except having a 2% to 3% better single core boost. The difference isn't worth $75 and is better off being spent on pretty much any component, or saved if you're happy with the build already.
>>
Due to space constraints my exhaust fans are on the roof of my case instead of on the back but the aftermarket CPU coolers I’m looking at are all push pull and I don’t know how effective they would be without them blowing directly into an exhaust fan
>>
>>72709629
Just run the top fans with a higher fan curve and exhaust upwards, which heat rises anyway.
>>
>>72709556
The box cooler sucks either way IMO but I want my PC to be totally silent. You're better off getting the 3600 and getting a nice aftermarket cooler.
>>
>>72708653
Which country?
>>
>>72709629
just get a normal dark rock 4 that isnt push pull, and increase the exhaust fans

Planning on doing gaming, mostly through VMs with GPU-Pass through, and some productivity work. Budget is up to 3k USD. I've got a 34 inch monitor that I use for work, but I'd probably route the games to another monitor I'd buy for that. Noise is a concern for me, so I may have gone overboard on that.

I am a moron, and can't figure out how to add a second graphics card to pcpartpicker lists, so consider this build, but with the addition of a 2080ti for the windows VM.

The 1650 will be for normal workflows on my 34 inch, 2k monitor. The 2080ti will be for use on a VM using GPU-pass through on a more high end 27 inch monitor, if that's even a possible setup.

How am I looking so far?

get an intel cpu with gpu embedded instead of ryzen+1650. also a less powerful supply.

1650 for a non gaming desktop is overkill in both power consumption and computing power.
>>
>>72709907
What I've read so far indicates that running an integrated GPU with pass through will reduce overall performance more significantly than if you have a dedicated GPU for the base system. Will an intel CPU+integrated GPU be able to handle a 2k 34 inch monitor while a VM is running windows on the 27 inch?

>>72709895
I can probably reduce the card. What would you recommend for 2k gaming and potentially VR?

new build won't post
red DRAM LED
system constantly trying to restart
after each restart CPU LED red for a short time and then back to DRAM LED red until next reboot

x570 aorus master
ryzen 3700x
crucial ballistix sport 2x16gb 3200mhz BLS2K16G4D32AESB

already replaced the mobo, so that should be fine, though old mobo gave me only red CPU LED
already checked all cables, tried one module of ram etc.


ram broken or cpu broken?
am I missing something?

>>72710123
Is the ram in the correct slots?

>>72710123
is the cpu cooler plugged in?

yes, I also tried a single module in every slot

>>72710145
yes
it's in the specially marked grey cpu fan connector and spinning

I triple checked all the connections

Do you have a second set of ram to test to see if your first batch is doa?

I'm trying to put together a mini-ITX build that will work for mild gaming, decent rendering and heavy animating/photo editing.
The GTX 1060 6GB is in my current build so that is what i'm working around, which limits my case to some level.

1. Not sure if I should go Intel or AMD for the CPU
2. Motherboards are either horrendous to pick on PCPartPicker or there aren't many options for me
3. I'm not sure if I will need a heatsink or another fan for it

General advice would be greatly appreciated. The graphics card is the only concrete piece to it all so far
>>
>>72709960
>I can probably reduce the card. What would you recommend for 2k gaming and potentially VR?
I can't say 100% what you should buy, but I'm in a similar situation and what I'm going to do is buy a recently released midrange card like a 2060 super and then buy the 3080 ti whenever it comes out
>>
>>72710378
regrettably not
I think I will just send the RAM back, got if from amazon, new one will arrive on monday then

though the RAM did work before with an old board for a few days until a reboot that gave me a red CPU LED - I suspected the board, so I exchanged it, but now I get RAM LED as stated

maybe I should just exchange both RAM and CPU to be safe?
CPU just takes a long ass time
>>
>>72710397
What's your budget? AMD is probably the best you can do CPU wise at any budget level, but it's good to know regardless.
