  1. I have heard repeatedly, from several sources "RTX 2080 is in it's infancy and as yet has not lived up to it's potential" ...thus, intuitively speaking, the current drivers are in their infancy too, and could very well be the root of the problem... or so it seems.... I can't help but think that as my friends have said, a clean install of the latest drivers certainly can't hurt. This is going to get sorted out in time...

    ...that and a newer, more potent PSU, to be on the safe side !

  2. So zela123, hey howzit goin... i don't have a definitive answer for your query about your gpu power usage, but I can't help but notice that the card you have is a beast, and very capable of top max frame rates, right up there with the MSI RTX 2080ti ... I also noticed that the PSU listed for your gamer is slightly less than the test gamer rigs I saw in various gamer blog vids, and comparisons from the gamer community. Now I'm no expert, and I'm not saying that PSU is causing the high power draw while in game, but the rigs from the videos i watched were running 1000-1500 watt gold and platinum PSU's which definitely could provide the card with plenty of power to run at OC and max settings in game....

    It just might be that that high end GPU you have there is designed to run at that draw under those high performance conditions, and not the PSU's fault at all, but this is where I start to get lost, and hope some of my colleagues here at OCC will know how best to direct you... best wishes and good luck with your monster beast MSI card !!

  3. +1 on successful Vega II launch! 

     

     

    They disabled double-precision floating-point on Radeon VII gimping it's FP64 performance, so the VII doesn't negatively impact Radeon Instinct MI50 sales.

     

    Despite the gimping Radeon VII should be capable of pumping out 862 GFLOPs of FP64 performance and stay ahead of the Nvidia Titan RTX (509 GFLOPs) and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (420 GFLOPs). They also disabled PCIe 4.0 on Radeon  VII. The reasoning is that AI workloads can saturate the PCIe 3.0 interface with relative ease, and limiting the available bandwidth would dissuade data center operators from repurposing cheaper consumer gear for those types of workloads. So AMD has left the PCIe 4.0 feature active only for the Radeon Instinct MI50 and MI60.  

    i got this email earlier today... very interesting !

     


  4. this is what i have under the table now, it's my bloodbath case replacement, but i haven't changed the signature on OCC yet,...so but it has a few 5.25 bays and huge amounts of room inside, and by the way i think this is the quietest case i have ever pawned ... check this out wevs

     

     

     

    ok I changed the sig

    i have been guilty of not cleaning my loop and it doesn't turn out well i assure you,... my friends were using a silver solution at the time and had few if any issues (don't ask me google it) but i had zerex antifreeze automotive in mine and it only lasted about 3-4 months, so there ya go...

    these guys on here are great sources of info for the asking !

    You had AF clog up...... Wow cjloki, tell me more man. Any idea what happened?

     

    I know I ran into an isse when i switch from pt nuke to AF but that was determined to be existing crud that I didn't get cleaned out properly. Turned out the blocks were cleaned out but the CPU block received and clogged itself with all the just that was left over.

     

    Talk to me goose!!! I must know.

     

    yah i went on the road for a couple of months and it sat and sat and sat some more, and then some more, and then i came home and ran it without checking it... like algae and micro-bio crap was growing in it...

    eventually my temps started to go up and i had to disassemble it all and flush it... i pretty much gave up on my h2o loop and went with the corsair systems... i sold the 3x120 rad to somebody on here for not much $$ and i got a message that they had a hell of a time getting it cleaned out, but eventually it went on to live again ... so there ya go boinkie !  

    btw that  was zerex 50/50 mixed with distilled water my reservoir was a one gallon aquarium converted for the purpose

  7. Hey wevs, bowtie, long time no see. I would say save up for the 8700K, if you can. I recently went from a 3770K to an 8600K and I definitely regret not springing for just a little more money for double the threads.

    I stopped using Gigabyte after a few DOAs, been using Asus exclusively since, no issues (besides that the Aura software sucks)

    yes, gigadouche has not been a friend of mine since I rma'd the p55ud5 listed in the sig for my x-wifes daily,... Asus became my go to when the replacement gigabyte came back with the same hiccup as the original....never again
