Thanks Wevspot. I am loving the case and video card. Long overdue. Lol

If that does not fix it I hop in a Timber Wolf and Blast it to microscopic Particles.

Great upgrade Boink, when you have time to run some benchmarks let us know if that video card is being bottle necked by the cpu !

Spikesoprano I will do that this evening. I have not noticed a nasty bottleneck but I will remind that I am not gaming at 4k.

I am sure the system would be better with a 5ghz chip but on the other hand I wonder what difference it would make.

SO I put my system back up to bench speed and left the video card at factory. Turns out this guy has me by 2% but that may literally be due to the video card being down clocked compared to his. 

 

Video card score weighing in at at staggering 2.70% difference between a 9900k driven system versus my 3930k. On firestrike extreme.

Gonna get time spy installed and will Edit in the results I find.

 

Well in time Spy according to this result. I traded swings with an 8700k setup so far as GPU scores. actually went back and forth. However when it came to the CPU score he smoked me.

So I guess the lesson here is there is gonna be a bottleneck someplace... is it worth spending 800 and up for an upgrade. I don't think so.

 

Thats that. Please comment on this, I want to know y'all's take on the results I found.

I think it did fine, of course the cpu scores were going to be lower ,,,, the newer generations and ddr4 ram would affect that but as far as frame rates for gaming staying up with a 8700k is damm great. And I totally agree with you on cost verus performance.  I'd be quite pleased with the system you have now,and best part of it was the most expensive parts were a gift. :thumbsup:

Thank you man. Yes I am very very happy with this setup. Always improving but its core components are awesome. ;-)

Certainly thankful to go with it.
