    Hyper Case DM-01

    Looking forward to it.
  2. Things may be looking up for AMD if they can deliver http://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-zen-cpu-radeon-hbm,29053.html http://www.anandtech.com/show/9231/amds-20162017-x86-roadmap-zen-is-in http://www.overclock3d.net/articles/cpu_mainboard/amd_2016_roadmap_confirmed_8_cores_are_back/1

    Better make it quick the forum shuts down on the 11th.

    Your old rigs

    Moved my build log over to OCAU so it is not lost. https://forums.overclockers.com.au/threads/project-darkling-older-build-logs.1283454/ Those forums can be a little quiet at times to though and always seems to have some fanatical fanboys so I spend a lot of time in the tech section over at whirpool where there is a abundance of noobs in need of help. There is also a option for a dark OCAU theme in the lower left corner. Some of you may enjoy this thread over at OCAU. "Tight & Lazy"... The Ghetto Mod Thread I rather like this fanless cooling tower from it Also keep a eye on the memory section here. https://www.overclock.net/forum/18051-memory/

    Your old rigs

    Still running water but been through a few changes since then. Also made a new bench for the system out of a slab of Redgum which is just a tad nicer. Although it doesn't always look that neat.

    Your old rigs

    From back around 2002\3 2.4c, 9700NP, BH5 RAM, Raid0 74GB raptors I believe and the PSU 3.3v line was vmoded to 3.7v to allow extra juice to OC the RAM. Edit: The Raptors went released till 2004 so this must be a more recent picture maybe just before I upgraded in 2004\5 so the CPU could be 3.2E or Pentium mobile with a socket adapter. From memory the 9700 NP was overclocked from 275MHz to 415MHz with a vmod.
  7. Reviews are out and one that I found of interest was this look into the Intel ring bus and how latency with the cut down 10600 could be affected. https://www.anandtech.com/show/15785/the-intel-comet-lake-review-skylake-we-go-again/4
  8. Your welcome. Tech is a passion so I enjoy following the hardware and I have more free time than most which makes it easier to pass on. I have a bit of involvement in the whirlpool parts wiki if your looking for another parts guide in the future even if it doesn't look as nice it still has some good info. https://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/rmp_sg_whirlpoolpcs
  9. Guess I wont be doing another update to the parts guide here. Shame the forum is dead as it is still the sexiest forum out there with the black background and colored text options. And then there is the people... some of the few that are left really know there shit.
  10. I never looked at that weighting BS even before they changed it as it was always BS no matter how it is weighted you are better to just look at the performance at each core level which are the figures I posted above.
  11. 3600 $299 vs 10400F\ $299-339 < 3 runs on the same system two at 2133 one at 3600c18 AMD ~0-6% faster https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-5-3600-vs-Intel-Core-i5-10400/4040vs4073 3700X $529 vs 10600KF\K $449\499 <Decent system 3600c18 RAM Intel 8-10% faster up to 4 cores AMD 4% faster at 8 cores and 26% faster with multithreading. https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-7-3700X-vs-Intel-Core-i5-10600K/4043vs4072 3700X $529 vs 10700KF\K $699\749 <HP system Intel 3-15% Faster https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-7-3700X-vs-Intel-Core-i7-10700K/4043vs4070 3900X $779 vs 10900KF\K $899\999 <A Decent system with 3600c18 RAM and another with 2400 Intel 14-18% faster 1-8 threads AMD 3% faster MT https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-9-3900X-vs-Intel-Core-i9-10900K/4044vs4071 3950X $1299 is the same but 36% faster MT. I know userbenchmark has some BS on there sites but these % numbers above should be accurate despite that. If anything they show AMD in a more favorable light as the benchmark is not overly sensitive to latency although it still sees a bigger change from core\memory latency than Cinebench

    AMD Zen

    3100 and 3300X are out and look to trade blows with the old 7700K https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3581-amd-ryzen-3-3300x-cpu-review-vs-3100-clock-for-clock 3100 is 2x2 while 3300x is 4x1 both have 8 threads and the same total cache. With both CPU overclocked to the same frequency it looks like the 3100 performs very close to the 3300X in something like Cinbench but still falls well behind in games which I guess is due to the inter core latency.

    Navi Confirmed: 2019

    Looks like Radeon VII does really well in Resident evil 3 performing close to 2080 super despite only being at stock clocks so once overclocked it would smoke the 2080 super. 1080Ti also does fairly well in this game. 5700XT however is sitting between 2070 and 2070 super which is a fairly average result for it. This seems to suggest the game is heavier on GPU aspects other than the shaders like memory bandwidth.
  14. Epic game store has it for free if anyone wants to shoot some Z. https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/download I have played a lot of L4D2 coop over the years and hope to give this a bash over the coming weeks if anyone wants to join in give me a yell.

    AMD Zen

    It would be fun but any AMD CPU would be a downgrade from my 7700K@4.9GHz for the games I play so I just cant justify it. I'm thinking Ryzen 4000 can be my last DDR4 platform.

    AMD Zen

    CPU-Z benchmark here indicates it works for this person buy I have seen some people claim no difference on forums. It should only work with loads that are only making use of a few cores. ~150MHz difference is within margin of error for a lot of performance benchmarks.

    AMD Zen

    Seems I am a bit late finding this so no doubt most of you already know about it 1usmus Custom Power Plan for Ryzen 3000 Zen 2 Processors

    Free game World War Z till April 2

    Yes it does but I don't really care when there giving away free games.

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    Looks like the controlled distribution of the virus has gone according to plan and now they just have to manage the rate at which it spreads so that the health system can keep up well enough that they can save the majority of people that get seriously ill from it. Then once the hospitals start to catch up again they can open everything back up and start selling off whatever is left (like leftover toilet paper) to get the economy back on track.

    Nice I was wondering when somebody would make a waterblock to better suit the core position of Ryzen but now they don't need to.
  21. You can use windows 10 for free without registering it you just have some very minor limitations but it sounds like windows 7 may be better suited.
  22. Thought it might have been something like that which is why I asked what the CPU usage was Glade you got it sorted.
  23. If you have a bunch of windows 7 systems with keys just download windows 10 from microsoft and stick it on a USB stick https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10 That way you will have less updates to install than if you used a old DVD Then when installing windows 10 you can format the drive which will wipe all data on the old PC and use the windows 7 key from each system to activate windows 10.
  24. RAM drive is a good idea so this is how my 970 evo went 3 mp4 files 22GB in total 1.25GB/s 2264 photos 11-12MB .NEF Total 23.3GB 1.04GB/s 2236 jpg Total 15GB < this is where the Intel optane would shine 721MB/s This was with copy paste which should write all the files in sequence which I think is easier on the drive than multiple copies at once. They all finished as soon as the counter ended although the other day when I was copying from multiple drives at once the 970 evo disk activity continued for a few seconds after the window closed. As you can see it is normal for write speed to drop but it usually takes ~10-20GB written before this drop and down to 100MB with large files seems a bit extreme unless you are transferring heaps of tiny files. While the Optane powers on with no drop.
  25. Tried with my system although I only have one NVMe drive I get some weird behavior as well. Copying a group of videos from a SATA SSD and a HDD to the 970 EVO sometimes maintains 500-700MB/s (max for the drives it is coming from) and other times it quickly drops to ~400BM/s with 7 files totaling 20GB on each drive. Edit: Ah could be because I left files in the recycle bin from first try and so my SSD was almost completely full since it had under 100GB free before I started. Edit 2: Ok freed up 160GB and this time I placed 5 MP4 files totaling 32GB on the SATA SSD a SATA HDD and USB HDD. This time it maintained full read speed from all those drives with the 970 EVO doing it easy.
