Yeah that's pretty toasty.
I can't even find the temps that some Nvidia partner cards are getting on the VRAM. Is everyone who buys them just too tech illiterate to note it, or do they literally not even have the sensors for it? wtf.
Their RX590 used pretty much the same cold plate where it's a separate, un-soldered piece of metal. Lmao.

It's strange because... why not just make the other piece it's screwed onto larger to begin with? Or lower it down closer to the VRAM?

so your point is that they compared the 3900X (not the 3700X) in some games that don't scale beyond 16 threads anyway? ok, let's fix that. clocks on the 3700X are something around 4% lower, resulting in around 2% lower performance overall.

Hey C70 bro, didn't mean to flake off from earlier but I do have a question if your experienced in building with this case. Would you recommend putting front intakes? It looks like there's potentially room when the front panel comes off. Or would I be better off top/bottom mounting them?

Also the reason I didn't take the second cage out is because I'm debating on if I want to throw in my old Hitachi HDD (FUCKING AT LEAST 7 YEARS OLD) to use as a throwaway backup sort of drive-basically keeping copies of things that I wouldn't necessarily care about loosing. Still back and forth on that. I got this bad for 60 funbux. Friend was moving out of state and downsized his build.

I have 2 noctua intake fans in the front, there's room. I had some issues where the front dust filter can catch very slightly on the fan blades occasionally, and my solution was just to very slightly open the front panel up on one side and it stops. Haven't had that issue in awhile though.

The idea of my fan setup was to bring all the air in from the front, then have 1 exhaust on the side, 1 exhaust in the rear, 2 exhaust above. Not sure if this is ideal or not, but it's a big case so mediocre thermals aren't the end of the world.

Friendly reminder to report the ban evader and his friend.

He's used 100+ different IPs at this point. He's mentally ill enough to care.

Mugen 5, Le Grande Macho. Not sure if those are compatible. Afaik the Fuma2 clears any RAM, so that probably.
There is also the Arctic 33/plus that is a bit better and more quiet than the 212 evo and cheap. It should be enough to cool the 3700X without spending too much but the Fuma 5 is obviously a more substantial heatsink with more heatpipes.

I had read the same thing about the fans catching which is what I wanted to see if you had experienced the same thing. I guess it's really a matter of measuring how much clearance that I have in finding an appropriate fan.

There's so many options for airflow in this thing that really the only bad option I can see is pulling air from the top. Only because there's no top filter. Not an air flow expert by any means either, but you could also pull cool air from the bottom of the case since you do have the elevation. I have my exhaust running at a higher curve than the rest of my fans in order to exhaust everything.

Hello my good bros. I have a question about SSDs. Does the read/write speed really matter after a certain point? I can get a Colorful 480gb or 512gb SSD for 48.00 USD or 49.50 USD respectively. The sequential read/write speeds are about the same as Samsung Evo 860 and the random read/write speeds are about 30% slower.

The Colorful 512gb is exactly the same price as a Samsung Evo 860 256gb. Is the superior random read/write performance of the Samsung worth paying double the price per gb? I have a Samsung Evo 850 256gb already actually and it gas been very reliable. But isn't this price difference a bit too large? Shall I get the Colorful? Please advise.

With an RX 580, the GPU is the bottleneck for the 2600, not the other way round. The 2600 is more than enough for a 580, and a 3600 would be overkill. He's better off saving 100 dollars.

And your current monitor is 60hz, I'm assuming? So your others need to be 60hz with an Nvidia GPU. Acer V277U is a nice 1440p monitor. You can just downclock it from 75 to 60.

Best price to perf GPU is the 570, 580, and 5700, but they have bad OpenGL support so the first two aren't great with Cemu.
For just Cemu, a 1660 should run games at 60.

i5 4690k @ 4.5ghz
980 ti @ slight overclock

I'm struggling to hit 1440p/60fps Ultra settings on a lot of games recently. Some games like Ace Combat 7 I never went under 60fps, but for games like Valkyria Chronicles 4 and Sleeping Dogs which I'm playing now, I'm at a 45fps average.

My CPU hits 100% usage on these games so I think It's holding back my GPU. Is it worth it for me to get a used i7 4790k? Or should I get a new GPU like the 2060 Super? or should I SLI my 980 ti? (I'm against this because of micro stutters).

You're in a tough spot because high end CPUs for a socket don't depreciate relative to their performance. You're looking at $130 for an i7 4770k that wouldn't be worlds better than your i5 (hyperthreading only gives ~25% gains in the best case) If you need more performance it's hard to suggest putting money into a small incremental upgrade when it really should be going towards an i7 9700k build.

Varies. But 2500k launched in 2011 and was good until roughly 2016 or 2017. 4790k launched in 2014 and is still good(though once the new consoles come out it probably will start lagging behind). Ryzen making hexacore the new mid-range standard(and moving towards octocore mid-range with price cuts on previous gen parts) was disruptive, but I'd say in general 5-ish years right now, and it's certainly not getting shorter.

Intel Core i5 4460 @ 3.20GHz (max possible upgrade is i7)
8GB RAM DDR3 (somehow DDR3 went up in price or what, probably not gonna shell out for more)
MSI Z97 PC Mate(MS-7850)
2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti

new one I got because I NAS died and I needed replacement
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G 3,5GHz apparently upgradable to any AM4 socket ryzen
16GB RAM 2666MHz CL16 (2x8GB) cheaply upgradable to max capacity of 32 GB

should I just put the GPU in the ryzen PC and swap it for my main one and use the i5 for NAS/home server?
in theory it checks out and should be compatible
as it is ryzen setup beats my i5 in benchmarks and the prospect of cheper upgrade is also appealing
on the other hand I never used AMD on my main machine and not sure if I should just reinstall w7 or use w7 key to go to w10
can I just swap the system drive and be done or is proper full format and reinstall ideal, because I don't want to cut corners and have to redo this in a while.

>Can a big brain expand on this?
I can, what you really should know is that you absolutely need sync options if your refresh rate is less than 100HZ.
If you monitor has 60 or 75Hz refresh rate, you better have sync options.

If you are using a 144hz monitor, sync is much less important as it mitigates the issues anyway, and at 240hz sync options are even less important.

Hope this helps.

Not really. A fast monitor that updates things fast will just wait while it has less fps.
A shitty monitor that can't update more than 60hz absolutely needs to have every single frame on point.
Another thing is that 144hz work with everything with no issues.
While there is a lot of fuckery with freesync where you either get flickering when it drops below the freesync range, or monitors sometimes bug out if you alt+tab out of a game and the drivers shit themselves and lock your monitor to a lower refresh rate than it's maximum.
It's not a hassle free experience.

>Okay, I've heard lots of people crying about how anything below 144 is unusable though once you get used to 144.
Pretty true, the difference between 60hz and 144hz is the same as 30hz and 60 hz.

>Am I cucking myself by buying a 144hz monitor when I can't 100% get 144fps at all times in all games?
Not at all!
First off all things even browsing is more smooth. Second a lot of games you will get 144fps. Lastly as I said, if you get 100fps on a 144hz monitor it still looks miles better than 60hz monitors.
If you play video games absolutely get 144hz monitor.

My general answer is never look at the brand, look at each specific model individually. As the quality varies a lot.
Main differences as VRM solution(how good the electronics that power the GPU and memory are, how stable they are) and how well the cooling solution is implemented to keep things cool and how quiet it is.

the thermal pads do at least cover the memory correctly.

both 9400f and 3600 were at effectively 100% load during these tests, as they were the bottleneck with 2080ti at 1080p. I.e. Ryzen 3600 could not calculate any additional frames, despite it's load on shown as 100%

As far as this post goes, sorry, I can't say much without going beyond what I am even remotely qualified to say.
To avoid problems I would advocate for a reinstall. Definitely, that I can say. I work at an IT shop, and we usually only get problems with stuff like windows upgrades and what you describe in swapping out parts but not the install.
In theory the OS should install new drivers, but it just introduces another source of error and you never know if the old ones will cause troubles or if some obscure registry fuckery will bite your ass.
It's not that inconvenient to reinstall, I'd do it if I were you.
In general I would do the AMD upgrade if I were you, why shell out for a whole new device if you can comfortably go a few more years with most of what you have?
