  1. Well better late then never.... Wait it ain't here yet. Delt with this on Mechwarrior online. Phirana games then they turned around and forced the game I was playing, Mechwarrior living legends, to halt any further development. Been butthurt ever sense, However it is nice to see Mechwarrior continued.
  2. Honestly I wonder what board Vlados has this system fitted to? @RHKCommander959 Wasn't the 4770K the heavy hitter for DT back then? `
  3. Yeah, That is true... BUT, https://www.kitguru.net/components/cpu/damien-cox/intel-core-i9-9900k-overclocked-to-7-6ghz-on-all-cores/ Edit: I know its only an eight core but its still impressive.

    Mowing on a hillside

    Cheapest option by far. I checked the prices on those Radio controlled lawn mowers. 3800 bare min. and I doubt that comes with the controller.
  5. Yeah that would be sweet but an LN2 bench does not quantify real world performance. That is an awesome suicide shot but I am still ever skeptical IF AMD actually is worth the hype this time. Hell I am still in the 32nm stone age here and happy with it to a degree. While AMD is considerably cheaper will it hold up to the test of time. And in 6 months after AMD does this release is intel gonna pull a hat trick and release their modern day lga775 q6600 or the lga1366 920 and bury AMD for another 5 years min? Just my 2 cents. not trying to bash.

    Budget Build

    looking at the current events what about the Ryzen 5 2000 series. Couple it with a compatable asrock or your favorite flavor of board and that should be good to go?
  8. 5.45 @ 1.77 volts for a 7nm processor. I have questions...... MANY questions.
  9. I am not upgrading from the 1600 but I have been looking at the price point of the new chips. Being as I eventually want to run the latest quicker storage I have been debating on waiting for intel to answer to AMD's new lineup or give AMD another go. BUT I WOULD WAIT FOR REVIEWS.

    LG monitor

    I would have to place my Computer tower on the floor to make that monitor work on my desk. So aside the cost that isn't happening. DErPa

    I want a new panel but I guarantee that is out of my range.
  14. To be fair Jim I am bouncing off your words here. If I misunderstood or misrepresented what you said I do apologize. Thanks for clarifying. Edit: fixed error.
  15. Awesome Jim. Thanks so much for that data. Its a shame that ray tracing isn't more prevalent in that game. I was looking forward to playing at some points.

    Issue with 5.1 surround sound using a USB sound card

    Thanks CJ. Got em gone,
  17. If you are able to RMA the card then by all means do so. It shouldn't do that at any rpm.
  18. Thanks for the write up windwithme. Can always appreciate the content.
  19. Thats awesome dude. Hope your enjoying it.
  20. Awesome dude. How does that OC frame and Naked 9900k do on temps?
  21. If you guys and gals had seen that I recently got an upgrade In my PC life. You would know that I am toying with my 011 Dynamic. After using this case for a while the question came to me. Is there a better way to configure the cooling for my setup? Searching the web I had mixed data from various youtubers and review write ups. This painfully concluded that I was not sure how I wanted to Configure the system. And I wasn't going to take on every suggestions as gold. So that meant one thing, time to test this myself. For all intense purposes the case layout looks a bit like this. 3 groups of 3 located at the bottom, top and front side facing away from the glass. Here are two reference photos. please ignore the pair of 960's in the setup photo. Those have been out for a while. Testing setup: Case: Lian Li pc-011 Dynamic Case cooling: X9 Scyth slipstream PWM fans 0-1600 RPM w/pwm (rated @ 74cfm) Motherboard and its minons : Intel 3930K processor on a Intel DX79si Motherboard supporting 16 gig Mushkin DDR3 2133 Note: The Ram is running at its rated speed in XMP and the Processor is OC'd to 4.20 Ghz from 3.20-3.50 turbo in single core turbo. Graphics: EVGA RTX 2080 Black edition (Stock cooling and stock clocks) PSU: EVGA 1KW PSU Processor cooling: I am using a liquid cooling loop that remained static in the Front side fan locations. Watercool Heatkiller VI basic waterblock, XSPC EX360 rad, XSPC Photon tube res, Swiftech MCP655 and 1/2-3/4 tubing. Testing solution: The test suit I used was 3dmarks Time Spy. For its function of testing both the CPU and GPU under the most extremes. and its free for the moment to me. Monitoring software used was EVGA Precision X1 for the GPU, Intel XTU for the board and its overclock, Core temp used for CPU temps and tracking. To keep things even more even Steven the GPU and the CPU were optimized into a Max performance profile so the Clock speeds are constant and Not skewing the results. After 2 consecutive runs with time Spy, one for warm up and second for data gather, The Max load temps will be recorded and then the system was allowed to sit in windows with only the monitoring software up for 10 minutes to establish a fair Idle reading. System setup: GPU was set to its automatic fan profile by Nvidia. This puts the fan efforts around 50% at 70c and 0 while the card is idling. To skew the results slightly, cause it cant be an amateur write up if I didn't, the fan profiles were set to a constant 50% with the intel built in ramp up starting from 50c and all on being at 60c. During testing it was ranged from 800RPM to 1200 RPM when the cpu ramped above 50c. In my defense, I did this because that is how I use it day to day. Lastly I did not take ambient in a manner that proper delta could be established. For this I do apologize. But according to a thermometer it was roughly 70F' next to the case when before I tested and after all testing took place. On to the Data: In the manner described above I went to it. Phillips in hand we shall see what happens. I was legit curious to see and apparently ready to delete 4 hours of life for the data gathering. See Crappy picture of fan locations for reference above. The first configuration I chose, because that is how it was to begin with, to have the top and side front fans populated as exhaust fans. 9 fans in total with the radiator sandwiched. CPU temp: Max 55c idle 35c Max Motherboard VRM temp: 54c GPU Temp: Idle: 47c Load: 73c GPU fan speed: Max 54 % Min 0% Second went Bottom intake with side and top exhaust. 9 fans in total with radiator only having 3 fans as outlet. CPU temp: Max 57c idle 40c Max Motherboard VRM temp: 54c GPU Temp: Idle 55c Load 73c GPU fan speed: load 50% idle 0% Next was The Bottom and side intake with top exhaust. This is where things get interesting. CPU temp: Max 55c Idle 39c Max Motherboard VRM: 56c GPU Temp: idle 45c load 75c GPU fan speed: load 57% idle 0% next was No bottom fans with side intake radiator sandwich and top exhaust. CPU temp: Max 53c idle 37c Max Motherboard VRM: 58c GPU temp: idle 48c load 77c GPU fan speed: load 60% idle 0% Lastly I did a brute force test with fans at 100% minus the gpu. Fan location was top exhaust with side intake and no bottom.... This was excessively loud but nowhere near as bad as bottom intake setups. CPU temps: Max 50c Idle 33c Max Motherboard VRM: 48c GPU Temp: Idle 35c load 65c GPU fan speed: load 48% idle 0% With that performed lets talk about this for a bit. Concluding: What is a constant here is the fact that you just cannot beat brute force when it comes to cooling performance. While impressive this case has not much a way of dampening noise or vibrations. Its so loud that it will rattle your teeth. For this reason I did not test the system much further with bottom intakes. Between the noise levels and results being either within margin of error or worse I abandoned using them in that location all together. A pc on your desk that is running north of 50 DBA is a distraction not worth getting used to. Now with the watercooling setup being where it is I cant help but wonder. Would the system perform better with the radiator placed elsewhere. With these results in hand once I have more time I have considered moving the radiator to the top and redoing testing just to get the most from my system. Movement of the heat coming from the GPU is going to make a clear difference, and in addition to that having fresh air only being ingested front the side fans is going to change that game. But how will that effect the CPU and VRM? Will a vertical gpu bracket improve this as well? Now that I have said that I will need to add the results as soon as I can allocate time to perform them. Likely next week. (January 26th tentative) With the testing performed it does prove one thing. Its an issue of give and take. With the fans as exhaust only and no bottom fans fitted we did see the best all around results. While with noise blown , haha, out of portion you can make the system cool better. What bothers me the most is that data clearly shows that bottom fans really do not serve a purpose other then blasting thy ears. You do see improvement with all fans pegged. But will suffer from hearing loss at the gain of only 5c on the CPU and 8c on the GPU. Other then that. Anyone that has taken the time to read this I greatly appreciate. Finally to answer my initial question. Is there a better way to configure the cooling for my setup? As usual the answer is, That depends.
  22. I have not tried that configuration. As far as testing with side exhaust its only value I found was then doing a negative pressure setup. Say you want to use 2 thin radiators in series. Other then that side should be intake. The best cooling all around came from radiator in top and side intake. Which I was not able to properly test against the same setup as I changed radiators. Not sure what it would do with all intakes. Not sure if the system would have enough places for the air to exit to make that worth while. What kind of performance issue and temps are we talking about..
  23. Here is the CPU ark page from intel. https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/186604/intel-core-i7-9700k-processor-12m-cache-up-to-4-90-ghz.html DDR4 2666 is it memory standard . With some tweaking I am sure it can reach 3000MHZ. My favorite brand tends to be Mushkin but pick your poison. Just remember the greater density memory it is then the rougher it will be to overclock. If it were me though it would be this kit. Not sure how many GB you need though for video editing. http://www.poweredbymushkin.com/Home/index.php/catalog/memory/redline/item/1274-mra4u300jjjm8gx2
  24. I can see that. It seems the card is operating as its designed. Not really fault of kingpin or Tin, Just wish that it would have been marketed better. Doesn't mention anything about that at all, but who would all things considered....
