    Nice OC! Do you think the dimms are getting too hot? Maybe a small fan over them might help with timings or bandwidth? My chips get up over 50c without the fans and then get errors/shutdown. Latency is pretty amazing wow. If you raise the trfc or disable gear down maybe that can help too?
  2. Should be a great pc and can sell old stuff to help pay for gpu .. would love some pics when you complete your build.

    What TIM did you use under the ihs? Did you do the float or seal it back on? PS. loved the throw back pics
  4. PSU will be fine but it looks like the 750w is only $20 more. There has been many good reviews on the 5700xt PowerColor Red Devil, but it is mostly black with some red.

    Navi Confirmed: 2019

    Looks like PowerColor released a good cooling card for the 5700xt, red devil series. The cards still do great against nvidia for the most part if you find them at the right (correct) price.

    AMD Zen

    Pretty much. Ryzen 1000 series I was able to do 4000mhz, Ryzen 2000 series 4150mhz and this one is probably closer to 4300mhz but takes some volts. Only the 1700x did I keep it OC'ed, the last two did better leaving them on their own

    Tried to OC some more but really takes too much volts to run stable with anything over 4300mhz. It really just does a good job by itself. Im seeing 4275 to 4325mhz in BFV running ultra without ray tracing and vsync off. In general it runs games at 4250 - 4350mhz depending on the map or game. Its a bit strange how its hard to run over 4300 all core OC when it will do it by itself. below is after an hour, it will hit bounce around those clocks but not lower. Without OC I can set my fans on low for the rad and pump at 1350rpm. This then hits up to 70c but usually in the lower 60's. Light desktop stuff, at least half the cores will hit 4400 quite a bit too. Yea OC just still not worth it, waiting for another bios to give it a go.

    Yea, like Tomb Raider and Last Light... I just didnt want to bother changing the range to show this better, I was just done messing with it at that point The other charts seem to show this much better.

    yea that is strange at those different res for Tomb. As cheap as some of those older cpu's are now, for a gaming rig running 1440p or 4k you cannot go wrong with many options, just gpu bound mostly. Save the money for a good gpu and psu.

    Yea at 1440p it was going to be small jump just thought it would be a bit more. Im sure on productivity suites it would be large gains but being mostly a games test here, all GPU limited. 1080p would have saw probably a few more percent in games but 1440p is what I game at and wanted to check as most reviewers did 1080p.

    New found appreciation for those that do reviews... this took quite some time to run, plot and chart... I was going to do loose 3733 vs 3733 tight timings but I dont think it would be worth the time as this took hours and the difference is small. If I ran 1080p, the difference would be more pronounced Im sure like reviews have done. Besides TimeSpy and FireStrike, all were ran at 1440p and the same GPU clocks. Stock XMP profile 3200mhz vs Tight timings 3733mhz both were 1:1 ratio with Infinity:
  13. I actually like that case it is so different. Freaking hard tubes look great, probably be my next project with a new case in a year or so. Look forward to seeing what you can push that 7700k too

    3600 is a killer chip for the price. I might have gone that way if it was released and reviewed at the same time as the 3700x/3900x. Yea that kit will be just fine... So, I just bought one of these ram coolers since it has a pwm, was cheap and can angle it. I thought my ghetto fix with the foam would be enough but I cant take it and the leds are sooo bright, Im just done with the Gskill one... https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32750671016.html Product Dimension 157(L) x 64(W) x 102(H)mm Box Dimension 145(L) x 68(W) x 50(H)mm N.W. 185g G.W. 225g Memory Type DDR DDR2 DDR3 DDR4 DDR5 Voltage 12V Fan Speed 500-4000RPM Current 0.22A Bearing Type Hydraulic bearing Air Fow 6.8-19CFM±10%(single 6025) Air Pressure 0.59-4.36mmH2O±10%(single 6025) Cable Longth 20cm Connector 2510-4 pin(PWM) Noise Level 10.8-32.1dB(A)±15% Accessories Extended cable 10cm with 4pin connector - 1, Extended cable 6cm with Molex (M&F) 4pin connetcor - 1, Screwdriver -1 Gskill cooler has 22dB (fixed, cannot adjust speed) and 8.6 CFM vs this one that has 10.8dB on low with 6.8-19CFM... Just hope the sound pitch is different. I like that I can angle it too.

    Or do all 3 But Yea big gains from timings. Running 1440p res my gain are even smaller of course for games. Seems like some games like it and everything seems super quick all around with tight timings. But did have to put ras back to 32 as it errored at 2.5hrs in Aida, memtest passed 1700% and p95 was good over 8hrs. That is why I test so much as I want 100% stable. That was a really good review and liked how he tested several cards and highlighted stuff when talking and comparing. -- Sucks about losing 4.0 in upcoming bios but I currently don't have a use for it. Just knowing it can and they won't, is just strange from amd. Installed latest chipset drives but monitoring software (msi afterburner and hwmonitor) is reporting wrong clocks vs Master.
  16. How did this shape up? Temps?

    oh wow that is a darn good jump. Was interesting when they used 2133 with high infinity too...

    lowered the ras a bit the rest of the timings the same, over 1700% on memtest... I think Im done with ram tweaking, was fun with good results. Aida is 64.9ns nearly every time. Ill try to do some compares in the next week with 3200 stock vs 3733 tweaked.

    Yea over the next few days I would like to make sure it is totally stable with these timings. I did a quick couple of runs on the below comparing my previous best scores to these timings. Im super curious of what the difference would be from 3200 stock ram vs 3733 would be. TimeSpy: Best vs Previous Best, CPU +6% https://www.3dmark.com/compare/spy/8030996/spy/7829278 FireStrike: Best to Previous Best, Physics +.03% .. Combined +5.4% https://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/20068095/fs/19873963 It seems to have helped my graphics scores a bit too or possibly driver updates played a part. Also, I have updated my chipset drives that came out a few days ago. Oh and the ryzen tool says not supported.

    @Dasa I think this will be good enough and even with the side panel off you reall do not see it much. Also, thanks for letting me know about the new ram calculator. I was trying to manually do this before and was just getting boot loops. Using the tool and setting to fast timings I was able to get down to 65ns latency! Im still running thru the array of bench/stress tests now. I still cannot get 3800mhz to post with 1:1 and think it might just be a chip limitation. Im close to when I had my 2600x in latency speeds. Ive spent soo much time tweaking ram, Ive had no luck with overclocking the processor. But it has been fun with ram. Im not sure what tool to use to get the full timings that I have as the older asrock tool dosent work with ryzen 2 now.

    Same settings, with and without the dimm cooler... I wanted to remove it because it is so darn loud and annoying sound pitch, but might put it back in since my temps on the dimms are much much higher without it. With the ram cooler, even after 4hrs of aida, it was a high of 29c on both dimms, without and in 15mins on aida, it hits 42/40c on them. Also, in 15mins, MB and CPU temps higher even with turbo fan settings it will not compensate for the removal of fan dimm cooler. Edit: and with gaming it gets into the low 50c and locked up... Dam I guess I need to put that back in. It really helps for stability keeping the temps low, first time it has locked with 3733mhz. --- Edit: And the world is much more silent now... a bit of velcro and foam on the one side for my janky fix Threw some foam in the empty spots in my bays near the pump too. Temps are now 32 and 30c with the foam vs 29c on both without. But much better than the 42 and 40c without the dimm fan. Edit: I tried 2 different sticks of ram for fun. My rgb 3466 would not post passed 3466, it did give decent latency considering it would not go lower than 16 on the timing of 72ns.. and the hynix would not post passed 3200, didnt bother running test since I could not get it to go higher than 3200. I do seem some people have got better latency than I can get with higher timings at the same bandwidth. There is another bios update coming soon supposedly.

    https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-ryzen-3000-turbo-boost-frequency-analysis,6253.html Im not sure about ^ if this is everyone, but all my cores do go up to the max boost clock of 4400mhz but not at the same time with light loads. It is interesting that they have different experience but they even used a decent cooler to try to get the single thread core up. Running games like bfv all my cores are over 4250+ and more like 4300mhz+ but depends on the map. Maybe it has to do with x470 vs x570.

    true that. some of the issues I have been facing with the new and old bios is that if you change settings in AMD Overclocking section within the bios, it retains even if you do a cmos reset. This has bit me more than once, thank goodness Asus has the flashback feature but it is long process. Even after getting back into the bios, you need to redo your ram timings, volts and fan settings. Ive found that the new bios I can set 3733mhz with 1867 infinity right off now were before I had to do steps of 300mhz. When I mess with lcc, it really does not like that (4 bios flashback later with OC I gave up). Still does not like to do 1900 Infinity. The cores seem to OC to 4300mhz all core. Ive only done small runs with this setting so far. 4400mhz OC black screened the 2 times I tried it with up to 1.45v. I did try 4400 and 4300mhz on CCX 0 and 1 but that didnt pass either. When I run 4300mhz all core, my scores and gaming is actually worse since I can boost higher than 4300mhz in games on a few cores quite often. BFV Im usually under 62c so it seems to boost quite well by itself. Also, with the all core boost, mine never downclocks when there is no tasks, always 4300mhz... I like it to throttle down when not in use and then I also have 1.4125v (with load it is around ~1.38v), as mentioned llc is not stable for me so I have to set higher, but idle it is 1.4125v. Seems like the bios is getting a bit better each time. I was only able to OC 4200mhz before so something they done has helped. I really like playing with the ram timings but still locks up if I change certain things... With the new bios Im going to revisit 1:2 ratio with high bandwidth. I have been running OC with 3733mhz ram so I might need to revisit OC with ram at say 3200mhz setting just rule it out too. 3733mhz with 1:1 Infinity 800%+:

    Really goes to show how good the 6700k is at gaming. It still does as good or better in many game tests. That user did a good job comparing. Looks like the 6700k still goes for a fair bit of money, 3600x seems closer priced and would be probably a better choice if buying new. But still, 6700k is still mean gaming chip. 3600 or 3600x would be nice if you did other tasks too. Found the below:
