  1. If you only play WoT on a regular basis the GTX970 won't be a disadvantage. That game doesn't use much VRAM ~2GB at 1920x1080. With WoTenCore I get 17500 points with my 970 @FullHD (max settings). Ingame it's ~100FPS. How HD maps will influence performance, I'm not really sure.
  2. Off topic: Take a look at the GTX970 market (used), they are usually much cheaper than 480/580, while offering similar performance when it comes to WoT. The possible difference in VRAM doesn't matter in this game at FullHD.

    Need new headset - halp?

    Nurki take a look at these reviews: They include soundsamples for the microphon similar to what I did in my mini-review of that USB thingy I did on techpowerup and the GSP300 sounds really good.

    Good solution for "fixing" jack thingy on pc to widen your options/selection so you can also buy headsets with regular plugs. That aside
  5. In hindsight I'm happy that I waited with Coffeellake (first wanted to see Z390) and instead switched from 3570K to 3770K. I 'll lean back and wait for new CPUs to be released. The question is when these fixes will be implemented in hardware. Zen+ (spring '18) won't have them I'm pretty sure.

    AMD (Ry)Zen

  8. Yep - hit's 5GHz stable with 1.35V. ---------------------------------------------
  9. As I understand it, the issue is VM related (one VM having access to an other "independent" VM).

    [FS - EU/Ger] i5 3570K

    Hi, I'm selling my old i5 3570K which is delidded and lapped (1000 grain). 4.4 GHz @ 1.27V are doable even with a medicore CPU cooler, 4.5 GHz wasn't possible to get really stable with any reasonable voltage (<1.37V - Intel max VCore) which is why I didn't try to push harder. The IMC allows for 2000+ MHz RAM speeds with 4 sticks, though I couldn't find the limit with my RAM/mobo combination which is limited somewhere around 2050 MHz. Undervolting at stock speeds is also possible up to around -0.15V. As you can see from the linked topic above the CPU is running nice and cool even under max speed+load after delidding and lapping, which makes it a good fit for SFF builds, HTPCs or something similar. The LM used was Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. All speeds and voltages mentioned here worked in connection with my system (Asrock Z77 Professional, 4x 4GB G.Skill 1866MHz DDR3 and Cogar GS 650W). What I can't guarantee is how the CPU behaves in a different system. Price: 80€ (Paypal) + shipping
  11. I just completed the operation yesterday and didn't have the time to test out the chip. Before I delidded it, I was running it @1.26V and 4.7GHz and it seemed stable, though hot as you can see from the first screenshot. That 's why I didn't run extensive stability tests, but the system made a stable impression. Yesterday after delidding and producing the "after" screenshot, I tested 5GHz for around 45min with Prime small FFTs and 1.35V. Just punshed in the numbers and it didn't crash, bluescreen or produced stalled workers in Prime95. But I can't say if it's stable or what voltage it really needs for certain speeds yet. Edit: 5GHz @1.35V resulted in 70°C.

      Dear god whatever site you're using to upload to has some of the WORST pop-up adds in the freaking world

      I see no pop-ups ... µBlock Origin

  13. before: thermal "paste" under the IHS : after: ... -30°C

      There's a report function ;)

      Anyway, thanks for the heads up; I cleansed him.. err... ok, maybe not the best word choice.

      I think it's exactly the right choice of words


    I still remember watching Calgary '88 in TV as a boy. This guy was the highlight.

      Is that the guy that absolutely sucked at ski jumping, yet was everyone's favourite?

    New PC build ~$1000 budget

    I strongly suggest buying 16GB RAM from the start. With Ryzen and it's memory issues adding aditional RAM down the line may become more than a bit tricky. This

    I heard EPIC won't get updated (Zen+)... if that is the case, Threadripper might also not get it. Zen2 is a different story and still far away at this point. ----- And don't put to much hope into Volta-gaming release anytime soon. Nvidia can milk Maxwell for a long time with AMD flopping Vega.

    That's fine as long as it doesn't break "your bank". Tighter timings from the manufacturer guaranties better bining and should result in greater OC headroom. In the pinned how-to-post topic here there is a link to things worth checking with a new monitor. Make a backup of your installation and extract the windows-key. It might be that you need that thing (MS telephon support/activation or similar things). BUt I'm not sure if it will work regardless.

    WoT Encore results!

    1920X1200 (didn't detect automatically ...) and all sorts of things running in the background got me slightly over 16K @ultra with 3570K @4 GHz, 16GB of RAM and a GTX970. And loading all assets before the benchmark starts (running a Samsung SSD) is really complicated it seems - bench started out at 30-45FPS and than jumped up to 100+. WarGaming ...

    With Ryzen/Threadripper I strongly suggest buying all the RAM you might need from the start. That platform is very sensitive when it comes to RAM. I wouldn't want to be the guy that tries to get different/mixed RAM chips running on Ryzen. Even if you buy the same model and brand later, there is no garantie that there will be the same ICs under the heatspreader -> potential trouble, manufacturers sometimes switch them during production (Samsung -> Hynix ...) The socket TR4 (Threadripper) has a potential problem with the sockets and mounting.If I remember it correctly it's Foxconn sockets that sometimes make problems - LOTES should be fine. If a board uses Foxconn or LOTES you can see on the retention mechanism for the CPU.

    You mean the guy who puts a consumer budget grade Corsair CS or CM PSU into a 150TB storage server? If you would have pointed him to Anandtech, TH, HARDOCP or Techpowerup that would have been fine.
