    Core i7-5960X 5930K 5820K Overclocking & Performance @ [H]

    Oh man, I love old X99 threads! FWIW, I still have a 5960X running on an AsRock OC Formula as my media PC and I run that CPU at 4.63Ghz w/ 125Mhz BCLK and it is 100% stable only using 1.78V Input Voltage and a VCore of 1.32V. VCCIO is 1.05V, SA was around 1.10~1.15V effective if I recall (id...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    Unless it was a mistake, it showed NEW from amazon for $2399 yesterday.

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    I see it shot back up to $2899 on Amazon... no way that monitor is anywhere near worth that over the PG27UQ. I was trying to justify if yesterday when I saw it for $2399 still and almost snagged it, but after seeing the jump this morning, this is just going to be off my radar until they have a...

    5900X Undervolting with PBO2 -or- Negative Offset -or- Both?

    PBO Negative Offset for sure, along with configuring your EDC, TDC and PPT settings for optimal performance and cooling to balance single core and multicore performance.

    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 Clone

    I think a lot of times it's what does someone still have sitting around that is Windows 98SE (or older) compatible... My Retro rig is much faster than what was out when some of the prime 3DFX games were out (Athlon XP 2800+; 2GB DDR 400; 6800GT; Sound Blaster ZS using SB16 emulation); but it...

    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 Clone

    I'd so love a remake of the old AGP voodoo cards, but with the ability to use the "newer" AGP 1.5V slots. Sadly, the only universal slot AGP motherboard I have needs re-capped to work properly. My retro gaming PC I have now has a 1.5V AGP 3.0 slot; and I have a 6800GT in there running Windows...

    Found a 3070, any reason to keep my 1080TI ?

    Same... all the way back to my Voodoo 3 3000 AGP and AMD Athlon XP's.... lol. Sadly, don't have my Pentium III, II or I components anymore and anything really prior to 1998. I think I still have the CPUs and some EDO memory though; but the mainboards are long gone and I'm really pissed that...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    The monitor is already down to $2.5k... they are not flying off the shelves, even at that price. I have no problem getting it for its current price, but as an upgrade from my PG27UQ for that price? Meh, not quite worth it yet knowing other options are coming out that will drop the price further.

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    The price on the 32UQX keeps going down... will probably hold off and see if it hits sub $2k at some point. I still love my PG27UQ, but if it ends up dying like some others have over the years, I'd probably snag the 32UQX next. The 27UQ (for a Computer monitor) was unmatched for so long and...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Nice, Speaking of Retro gaming, been playing through the 3DFX Version of Descent 1 on my retro gaming PC as of late. Forgot how fun that game was!

    What happened to Zen 3+?

    I made the jump from an Intel 5960X Haswell-e to an AM4 5950X earlier this year and didn't even bother with a fresh install of Windows 10. I just threw in my 2TB 980 Pro and it worked perfectly with 0 issues after installing a few drivers on top of whatever windows did automatically. I had the...

    What happened to Zen 3+?

    Honestly, if all else fails and Zen3+ either flops or never happens, Zen3 is still a pretty nice upgrade over Zen2 in terms of performance. Long term, if you wanted to continue using the platform, a used Zen3 CPU would be a great deal (as I see you are on X570, which is a nice chipset to begin...

    What happened to Zen 3+?

    I'll wait for official specifications and benchmarks after release. Gaming at 4K, my 3090 is the limiting factor still and I don't see my 5950X aging poorly anytime soon as the IPC and amount of processing power is already ridiculous for gaming.
