*100mhz-150mhz. Which makes 0 difference. Also temps will be similar and as long as voltage is 1.38V or below it doesn't make a difference in lifespan.

Forum Topic "First Build! Streaming and future gaming"

hello_there_125 1 point 27 days ago

1.38V is the max voltage. Stock idk what it is but it ain't 1.38V for sure. You can get up to 4.1-4.2ghz with the 2700 without hitting 1.38V.

Forum Topic "First Build! Streaming and future gaming"

hello_there_125 1 point 27 days ago

At stock. Overclock the 2700 and it's 0.05-0.1ghz close.

Forum Topic "First Build! Streaming and future gaming"

hello_there_125 1 point 27 days ago

You realize you can overclock the 2700 too? It's like a 0.05-0.1ghz difference between the 2700X and the 2700 which is pretty much 0%. Also the stock cooler isn't that good, plus the windale 4 which beats the wraith max is $33 on amazon/newegg currently.

Forum Topic "Upgrading sons first build"

hello_there_125 1 point 2 months ago

Not like that'll make any difference in performance. The 570 itself is too slow to have a performance increase in 8gb compared to 4gb. Even if you need those max textures for futureproofing, it won't make the game look better if everything else is turned to low.

Forum Topic "Upgrading sons first build"

Why not go with a cheaper 570 like the Powercolor?

-Cheaper mobo (Well, why didn't I go for the Pro4 or DS3H? Sure, their VRMs are fine especially for a 4 core ryzen, but the Pro4 has high DOA rates, no LLC implementation, etc. and the DS3H has only 1 fan header and a lack of debug features.)
-1x8 RAM, contrary to popular belief dual channel barely improves FPS
-Replaced obsolete A400 SSD with bigger capacity Team L5 Lite 3D, the A400 has 2D TLC NAND with no DRAM which will decrease lifetime/speed significantly. Also a newer HDD as well.
-Cheaper RX 570 not including MIR.
-Carbide SPEC-06 is an ok but mostly obsolete case nowadays, and when the fantastic Q300L with great airflow and build quality is around the same price why bother with it?
-The EVGA BT is a very bad PSU. It's group regulated unlike most modern PSUs like the cx 2017, meaning that crossloads (sleep states) will cause the voltage to go way out of specification. The CX 2017 450W is probably the best bang for your buck for budget PSUs. (Also, the BT has a 30C rating, which means that at higher temperatures it'll probably fail to provide the specified wattage/regulation.)
-Q300L has very good airflow, and case fans are generally unnecessary even for cases with "bad" airflow like the NZXT H500.

Unless you really want that AIO which is also loud the windale 6 / macho direct are best value.

S340 has very bad airflow, and that's on purpose; NZXT intended it to have a top mounted AIO for intake.

Isn't ATX spec based off of old group regulated PSUs?

Those are all games that don't use much VRAM, only get 8gb version if you're contemplating playing some very VRAM heavy games like GTA V, BO4, etc.

Forum Topic "AMD 2600x Build Opinion needed"

hello_there_125 1 point 4 months ago

Definitely not worth the extra money you have to spend on the 2600x. A CRYORIG m9a is good enough for an oc'd 2600, which can't go above 4.2/4.3ghz anyway because of the voltage wall.

Forum Topic "AMD 2600x Build Opinion needed"

hello_there_125 1 point 4 months ago

why not the 2600

even if you enable auto OC with xfr2, it tends to heavily overestimate the voltage required so you still need to do some tweaking

Forum Topic "AMD 2600x Build Opinion needed"

hello_there_125 1 point 4 months ago

Seasonic Focus and Evga g2/g3 but this are more expensive comparing to BitFenix Whisper M.

whisper m is better than both, it comes from the same model as the RMx 2018

That guy's lying, the s1211 is a lot worse than the masterwatt

not saying the masterwatt's good for its price, the lowest in price I would stoop is the cx 450w 2017 black label for $40

the s12ii's group regulation alone is enough to put it far behind the level of the masterwatt

That website's dumb. Bottlenecks depend on many factors, most of all the game you're playing. That site tries to do the ol' "one size fits all" trick but it doesn't work. Also, wtf does "30%" even mean in this context? 30% performance lost that the GPU could have with a better CPU?

hello_there_125 1 point 4 months ago

both those builds suck

i5-8400 is trash value right now as its overpriced, P300 is pointless when p350x exists, there's cheaper $100 gskill aegis 2x8gb 3000mhz ram, and without counting MIR the bitfenix whisper m 550w is better value than the G2

Also, the b360 gaming plus is overpriced ($100 for a b360!), b450 aorus elite is overpriced and only for aesthetics, and 2600x is overpriced as the 2600 exists and has the same performance when you add a gammaxx 400

Only the 8600k surpasses Ryzen, and that's at a big cost of $200+ with the inflation of the price of z370 motherboards and high end coolers, all for just about 10-15fps average with a 1080ti or higher. The 2600 overclocked to 4.2ghz is equal to or beats the 8400 in most games.
