  1. 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.
  2. If you are able to RMA the card then by all means do so. It shouldn't do that at any rpm.
  3. Thanks for the write up windwithme. Can always appreciate the content.
  4. 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..
  5. 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
  6. 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....
  7. shame on me for not looking.... STUPID MOD.
  8. Thats reaching back to the past right there. Nice results, not much to miss with GPU overclocking. As long as it does not overtemp, artifact or degrade performance your golden. Side Note: I began with a 7950 ages ago. I think I have owned over 10 gpu's sense then. :wow:
  9. Long enough for me to hate it and then fix it. ;-D
  10. MrGuru , I believe the version you have should be an A chip. I am pretty sure if you can go above a 112% power limit then you do have an A chip. I think the version comes down to The gaming, XE, XE ultra and FTW branding divides which chips are the higher binned ones. The bios version should confirm that BUT I do not have the hyperlink to the thread on EVGA's site for that. As far as needing to do a bios update, I must ask does it really. I am in a bit of the same predicament. I own a 2080 black edition, I want to keep my card for the next 3-5 years. So I put the EVGA hydro copper water cooler on it and left the bios alone. My thoughts, Boinker
  11. One last think to do with it. Couldn't stand the kind teal turquoise fan beauty rings..... Buyers remorse.... Fork it, I have a paint can. I am pretty sure its better. What do y'all think.
  12. Gonna give a slight download of recent happenings. After saying screw it and going with a single rx360 I decided to paint it to match the case a bit better. Seeing as this rx360 is older then the system itself it needed cosmetic help anyhow. After that fiasco, had to make 5 attempts to get it right, it was installed. Not too shabby I don't think.  Then an install Shortly after was the nerve racking part. Hydro copper install. I have to say, evga did a pretty dang good job. However, it is the most expensive one on the market..... But it has unicorn vomit, cough cough rgb. Bleeding it with external psu for a day.  And here is the system during testing.... But first a small blooper reel. When I installed the GPU block I installed the insulating pad under the black rather then under the backing plate.... Oh well. Draining the loop was rather entertaining. But finally with the finished product..... Finished for now anyhow. It will receive new fan inserts. Blue didn't match up correctly. GPU max temp after some Tim burn in is 60c rather then 90c under heaven benchmark. And the processor hasn't suffered due to the addition of the GPU in the loop. Xspc made a dang good radiator. Now it just looks better. Final thoughts. Maybe hard tube one day... Lol, but not today.

    Welcome to OCC See you in the forums.
  14. It took a few minutes but I found this database here. https://overclocking.guide/intel-skylake-non-k-overclocking-bios-list/ According to my reading; unless you have a Z170 chipset motherboard that is on that list of modified bios you cant move the base clock to overclock the processor. Anything on the Asrock side of the list is where I would land, but the four of those are reputable brands. Although for overclocking that chip in particular I would go for something in the lower range of price. Sorry but I cannot suggest a specific board for you. How I tend to select motherboards is head to newegg and start tagging the filters until I have narrowed my options to a few. After that I head over to the cpu support section of the manufactures website and double check my reasoning. I.E. Motherboards section > Brand (intel) > Chipset (Z170) > manufacture (asus or asrock) > form factor > feature etc etc etc. However, If you are willing go a different direction MAYBE, put in for a different processor your Motherboard supports. With the 3020 bios it seems you have support for the 7700k, 6700k or 6400k. Those chips have the unlocked multiplier and are ready for overclocking. Seeing that the Bios has its AI tweaker on it I can assume you can overclock any K series chip. There is my long winded post for the evening. Me personally I would sooner get an overclocking chip then risk the current setup. My thought, Boinker.
  15. We all are looking forward to ryzen 3. AMD has been swinging it pretty hard lately. I am just curious if Intel is gonna get the CPU shortage over with and start coming out with a newer arc here soon. And their GPU rumors.... I hope come true.
  16. Glad you got some good results. Anything is better then running at stuck at stock. I wonder, what kind of performance increase in benches are you looking at in percentage? Also if you are looking for better results going to a triple radiator setup or going full custom will provide some improvement with a bit less noise.

    New Forum ??

    Cool. I can dig it. Much better then the white washed fence the old mobile forums was. Thanks a bunch OCC
  18. Removed Duplicated topic. Crap happens. Too your question.... IDFK, BUT; I saw one person on reddit confirm that he could. Now do you want to risk a card that you just got is on you buddy.
  19. Thats one hell of a review you have there Guest_Jim_* . It is certainly appreciated. And that is a lot of performance data. Thank you.
  20. Rodregoxm49. 15% is a heavy penalty. Check out what Gamers nexus did to fix this case with a similar issue. Get creative and make something work. A dremal is your friend. And so is this stuff. https://mnpctech.com/case-mods-gaming-pc-liquid-modding-custom-computer-mnpctech-overclock-cooling-fan-grills/modders-mesh-honeycomb.htmlsometimes expensive and always worth it. If you a creative with it you can make a front intake hole and use this or a similar modders mesh to create a large front square or round hole. Maybe paint and style it so it will be sleek and simple. Maybe move the fans to the inside of the case and cut a small rectangular. Or maybe widen the holes the are situated at the front right of the panel to allow more air in and drill the panels bottom out. I would not be able to stand that Lack of performance from the case. I would be doing something similar to the mod gamers nexus did and adding RGB fans to the front of the case to offset the mesh mod at the front end. I would however use a wider mesh to create even less restriction. I am not sure what language you speak But I hope you can use this info to your benefit. Me personally; I would not be able to stand that Lack of performance from the case. I would be doing something similar to this and adding RGB fans to the front of the case to offset the mesh mod at the front end. Just my 2 cents. Good luck Rodrego.
  21. Hello again. Looking at the case you have. It seems to me that it could be subject to a few flaws in the airflow department. Nothing that you did, BUT, if there is a way to get more airflow through it then that would help considerably. Most cases that have a front facia like the one you have tend to restrict the air going in so much that it chokes out the components on the inside. 1: Modifying the case to improve the air intake would be the best and most time consuming at the same time. I did this to my chief tech dragon and it helped quite a bit (modified the air intake louvers) This is assuming this is the case you own. http://www.kernel.com.br/bluecase/home/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=92 2: Removing air filters from the front intake would help but the consequence is dust intake. This is actually the first thing I do with all my cases when I receive them. 3: fitting higher performance fans, This comes at the consequence of noise. You said 90mm fans are mounted. Is there a chance you can move to 120mm fans? BTW: this your case? Gabinete Gamer BG-015? If so it should accept them. 4: If it doesnt have a tempered glass panel you can put a blowhole or a side intake in it. I have done it with plexi and acrylic panels and also done so with steel sidepanel. Here is a short guide to that. https://www.overclockersclub.com/guides/blowhole/ 5: if you are feeling adventurous then a bottom intake could help if there are vents in the powersupply shroud. Just my two cents. Good luck and god speed. Hope those temps come down.
