fill them both

In Topic: Gigabyte X299 Aorus 7- how to get the memory to 300 MHz?

if cpu-z says its running 1500=3000 then your good and just ignore what windows is saying as its probably wrong

run a memory speed test like aida64 if you want to be sure its performing as it should

very true

7820x oc 4.8GHz vs 1700 oc 4GHz both with 3200 ram

gaming performance about the same

single threaded photoshop performance 7820x is ~15% faster

rendering video 7820x is ~25% quicker


so although the value isn't great there is more performance there

threadripper for a little more will eat it in the multithreaded performance but performance about the same as the 1700 in single threaded

your original plan for 7820x may not have been a bad one really it hits a decent middle ground for dss with two extra cores and slightly slower game performance and lower max oc

7820X $700
Asus TUF X299 Mark 2 $340

CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB (4 x 8GB) CMK32GX4M4E4133C19R $614 <newegg
Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Aorus OC 11GB $956
Samsung 960 PRO 512GB M.2 $319.2
HGST Ultrastar He8 HUH728080ALN600 8TB $492 <newegg
Corsair HX Series Modular HX750 750W 80 Plus Platinum $175 <ample power
Fractal Design Define R5 $155 < better airflow & quieter
Noctua NH-D15 $114 <quieter

ALso seeing you play with the Luminance levels after stacking and how fast it redrew was impressive to watch - that is at least twice as fast as mine!

seems that is mostly single threaded ipc with which my mild 4.6ghz oc will be helping a bit

the fastest cpu for that would be a 8600k\8700k overclocked to ~5ghz

but obviously a cpu with more cores will complete the stacking quicker

unfortunately it would be a bit of a weak point for threadripper


you have me tempted to step outside with my sisters d750 and snap a few shots of the stars

she has some nice very nice fixed lenses from wide angle up to a big old 600mm zoom and being in a remote location its 15k to the nearest small town emitting any light pollution
