    seems weird comparison.

    like if you're gonna drop $3k, you probably want ~1000 CPU, ~1500 GPU, ~500 of NVME. In terms of well rounded performance, rather than pure hashcat numbers.

    show me where a 10, 12 or 16 core makes it worth it for games?

    i can afford a 3k gpu but I don’t see why I need to spend $1000 on a cpu with no benefits for what i do just make it look normal lol..

    At this rate of how long its taking to get orders fulfilled it would be cheaper to buy drugs and render graphics you've never seen before

    Tweaktown is going to do some Benchmarks with "average" CPU's like the Ryzen 5 3600, you know the ones that us poor people own.

    I don't want to know what kind of substances you need to render doom eternal in that method.

    all about that single to 6-8 core thread boost baby. Sadly most of that is strapped to the high-end Intel's and forth coming Zen 3.

    Point being - you're CPU limited under those premium cpu's till beyond 1440p. I'm not saying its right - or that you should like it - just calling it as it is.

    How cool is EVGA Jacob. I am not game enough to trick my XC3 into thinking it's a FTW3. Maybe in 6 months I'll sell my XC3 and get a FTW3 instead.

    I have to say I feel really comfortable with my EVGA purchase (when I eventually get it) Their support seems amazing

    you know the other way to do it?
    you grab the bios off someone who already did the double flash on their card.. so its one flash for you.
    but like if you do it and you don't seen an increase its easy to go back.

    Really like the look of these and being able to see through them. Also the RGB of these seem pretty good also. IIRC seeing an earlier video (Frame Chasers guy) and the block/plate doesn't connect with the chokes or caps (one or the other 1:42).

    yeah looking forward to it, will see how it compares too the EK and Corsair blocks.

    last time i was at PLE buying watercooling gear, i asked they guys there what they thought of Bykski, and they were all over it, saying its just as good, and cheaper, and build quality was very good.

    EDIT I'm still crashing at 170. Bringing back to 160

    This morning I was really sad because I was crashing between map loads with Mordhau at 170 core and mem clock.

    I'm almost at 2.2 GHZ on air now though after some tweaking.

    What saved my ass was changing my fan curve. Don't have one. Go completely linear.

    I wanna buy an aio hybrid kit for my card. Let's see if I can get 2.2ghz before that. The curve above saved my ass. I run cooler and i can get better boost.

    Wouldn't it be better to start the fan curve at something like 40%?

    Good point the curve will be flatter. Will give that a crack

    is 1900mhz max boost extremely low for a 2080ti?

    Looks like the loop has a really large volume. He needs to run the benchmarks longer and over a couple of cycles to allow the system to soak up the heat.
