    New Gaming Build

    It will be using the new Micron chips so you should be able to hit 3800 and get a nice boost from tweaking subs but you may not be able to work wonders with the primary's as you could with b die.

    Navi Confirmed: 2019

    RX5500 4GB vs 1650 Super 4GB looks like they go toe to toe fairly well although Nvidia has a small efficiency advantage despite the older process node especially due to the bug with current AMD GPU with high multi monitor idle power use. AMD is running a higher speed GDDR6 1750MHz vs 1500MHz https://www.techpowerup.com/review/zotac-geforce-gtx-1650-super/27.html
  3. Downloading Cryengine Neon Noir Ray Tracing Benchmark which doesn't require the Nvidia RT cores. Ultra detail 1080p Very high detail 1080p The benchmark does seem to favor Nvidia with 1080 TI getting 10k at ultra and 2080 Ti getting 15k

    keep getting BSOD

    You wont be able to change desktop theme and it will have a watermark in the corner. If you go into settings update and security you should be able to click check for updates. As to your instability there isn't really enough info from that to be sure but I typically start buy running some stability tests to rule out some hardware.
  5. It is only as loud as the parts you put in it so as long as you have no HDD or coil whine... a D5 pump is nice and quiet at low RPM and with enough rads you can run the fans around 0-1000RPM depending on load. Airflow over parts may not be so good so when pushing high overclocks for benchmarking you may want to aim a large fan at the case. Hard tubing isn't great for someone that changes gear a lot as you need to redo the tubes every time you change a part since GPU cores and CPU locations move around and they usually still hold water when draining making it more difficult to get apart without making a mess.

    Why? it is free to use with minor limitations.
  7. Not sure how good it is as everyone on OCAU seems to be using 2080Ti and getting 30k in Superposition but there is a lot of old 1080Ti tests where they are a few thousand points higher so it seems to favor Nvidia a fair bit unlike Firestrike. The memory test on Userbenchmark is fairly good. Mate upgraded to a 9700K when I was helping him build a custom loop so I swapped him for my 6700K for his 7700K. Same IPC but can run 5GHz 24\7 with less v than the 6700K needed to do 4.6GHz. However the 6700K was able to hit higher RAM frequency but at least the 7700K can manage very tight RAM timings ok. Still have yet to go back to OC it and take a decent picture but after a lot of teething problems his system is running well.

    Fan arrangement

    With a water loop the water temp is fairly stable but with intermittent loads CPU temp can quickly spike from 30c to 60c then drop back down again within seconds so with a 10 second delay it prevents the fan RPM jumping all over the place for no reason. Pump control is a bit more tricky since at high RPM it can help to combat spikes in temperature especially with my 300w+ GPU when I am pushing the boundaries of it's stability with high overclocks.
  9. With pump at 100% the GPU tops out around 70c Junction thanks to the Storm G5. CPU runs ~60c at 5GHz 1.35v Prime 95 thanks to delid with liquid metal under the IHS and I was only feeding it 1.375v for 5.1GHz so there is probably room to push higher assuming it hasn't just hit a wall which from memory it may have. Although due to AVX -1 it is running 100MHz less in Prime95. Also had a crack at superposition which favors Nvidia using the settings there running over at OCAU https://forums.overclockers.com.au/threads/unigine-superposition.1219642/page-19
  10. So you are GPU limited to 55-60FPS and probably CPU limited to 77-80FPS so a CPU upgrade wont help in that section of the game at least unless you are playing 720p. That is assuming the GPU is no longer running 95% load + at 720p. Best you can do is overclock the GPU and wait for patches\driver updates.
  11. What happens if you drop RDR2 to 720p? as this will only lighten the load on the GPU further and have no effect on the CPU. Even with a 9900K 2080Ti you will struggle to maintain 60FPS at 1080p in RDR2 it is just in bad need of optimization at this stage with the old 2600K performing better in minimum FPS than a 9700K.
  12. New score with 7700K@5.1GHz -1AVX 1.375v, 4x8GB 3600c14, RadeonVII 2150-core 1275-mem. http://www.3dmark.com/fs/20952799 24 408 Graphics Score 33732 Physics Score 16205 Combined Score 10 549 GPU score is a little lower with newer drivers the clock speed is more stable with less dips but cant hit the same highs although I am sure I could do better if I found the sweat spot for v vs clock again. Here is a userbenchmark run at the same settings UserBenchmarks: Game 119%, Desk 105%, Work 84% CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K - 109.4% GPU: AMD Radeon-VII - 138.5% SSD: Samsung 970 Evo NVMe PCIe M.2 1TB - 284.8% SSD: SanDisk Ultra II 960GB - 108.1% HDD: WD Green 3TB (2011) - 47.4% RAM: G.SKILL F4-3200C14-8GVR F4-3200C14-8GFX F4-3200C14-8GVR F4-3200C14-8GFX 32GB - 127.5% MBD: Asus MAXIMUS VIII GENE

    Fan arrangement

    What's wrong with that? the fan's being off till the GPU hit's 65c helps keep them quiet at light loads. My GPU doesn't throttle till junction hits 109c but it overclocks best if I can keep temps down around 70c or less. True about the ramping up and down that is something I battle with on my loop although with agrus monitor I can set a delay before the fans change speed to help combat short spike ramping.
  14. Case is really up to you but here is some places that do good reviews https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3521-nzxt-h710-case-review-brute-force-airflow https://hexus.net/tech/reviews/chassis/136415-nzxt-h510-elite/?page=3 https://bit-tech.net/reviews/tech/cases/fractal-design-vector-rs-review/3/ US prices are a bit funny vs AU The Kingston A2000 1TB was $159AU and it is $135US so it goes from a bargain here to a little expensive there While RX 580 8GB are $300 here $120 there
  15. Oh dam. It's kinda a bad time to go buying new high end GPU maybe just get a cheap card to screw around with and vmod or something unless there is a demanding game you really want to play in the next few months. Maybe a middle ground like a reference RX 5700 8GB $299 Microcenter then stick it on water. Have you thought about going big or small with the build?
