A stock 3570k and 7400 have almost identical performance. I don't know what your definition of **** is but most of would understand that anything since sandy bridge is probably more than capable of 4k playback with a gpu that supports it. Yes, it isn't anything earth shattering, but it also doesn't have to be.

Let's not forget that it is the same speed as a kaby lake i5, which was the goto gaming cpu only 3 years ago. It's also faster than a lot of 4k laptops. I said "should" because it depends on other factors, most importantly the motherboard. Also, OP confirmed it works 3 months ago.

I imagine that's a reporting error. I don't think most cpus can do different vcores on different cores. Plus, an AIO wouldn't be able to cool 1.5v on zen. You would know if it was actually doing that.

I don't know if you still run this thing but if you do the ram sticks are in the wrong slots. Right now they are running in single channel mode, and you can get more performance in dual channel. Double check which slots should be used first in your motherboard manual but 99.9% of modern motherboards use the second and fourth slots from the left.

Kyle from awesomehardware/bitwit did a test a couple years ago that showed that the heat output by an aio into a case is negligible when it comes to gpu temperatures.

I would strongly recommend switching the front to intake if only for dust management.

dude, 2 years ago nobody would have bat an eye putting a locked kaby lake i5 with a 1070. In fact, PcPartPicker even did it. A vega 56 performs quite similarly to a 1070, and an 8100 is literally the same cpu as a 7600, so there probably isn't an issue. We've just been spoiled by core count recently.

The 8700k and the 9700k perform almost identically in every application, so that shouldn't be a concern.

As for SFF cases, as long as you don't want anything faster than a 2070 you should check out the Lazer3D LZ7. It is ridiculously small, possible to find, and if you use a power brick you can get a hyper 212 class cooler in it, or you can use an sfx internal power supply and get a 120 rad/lp air cooler.

You can't engine swap anything in either project cars 2 or asseto corsa without mods. The idea of AC or PC2 is different from FH4 in that the whole point of AC and PC2 is to accurately replicate the experience of driving, not to make a crazy custom car. You can still tune a whole lot of things (suspension, aero, tires, etc.) as you can on a real car, but not engine swaps. Besides, there is no need to swap an lsx into a miata when you could just drive an actual race car. Driving a proper car is a lot more fun than driving a crazy ls swapped miata could be, unless you just want to drag race and do burnouts, in which case the miata still doesn't have anything on a built sn95 mustang.

First off, you don't need a 4xx chipset to run the 2200g. Second off, every one of those board's websites show that they're hdmi 1.4 because that is what they were originally designed for. That being said, the actual traces for hdmi 1.4 and 2.0 are exactly the same, but only certain cpus support 2.0 (notably the A series doesn't). As long as the bios doesn't bottleneck the cpu it should be fine to run 2.0, meaning these motherboards that were tested should be fine.

I would strongly recommend that you move the graphics card to the top slot, as it has double the bandwidth of the bottom slot, and it allows the fans to breathe better.

There is no way in hell that PC would ever draw 850w from the wall, and you could probably get away with a 500w psu. That being said, I still wouldn't recommend that PSU to anyone, as solid gear is not a very reputable brand. Go with something like this. It will supply more than enough power and it also won't burn your house down.

The 2200g does support 4k 60fps via hdmi 2.0 on certain motherboards. Here is a nice list of ones that support it.

The 1660ti and 2060 don't support SLI. The only cards that do are the 2080 and 2080ti.

SLI is dumb anyways, as almost nothing supports it. If you have the money for 2 2060s just get a 2080 or Radeon VII.

I have gotten my 8700k up to 5.3ghz at 1.42v with an air cooler... I think it would have to be something non-delidded to thermal throttle.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Dark Rock Pro 3 Fans"

  • 7 months ago

You could theoretically use the front fan on a 120/240/360mm radiator using 2 short screws, but it wouldn’t be optimal. Also, there is almost no aio that can outperform a drp3 or drp4, and they certainly wouldn’t be quieter, so I would save the money. Unless you have an absurdly hot cpu (FX 9570, non delidded skylake x/coffee lake) that air cooler will have plenty of cooling power whether it is in Illinois or Arizona.

So as for the "wrong" thing, the vast majority of motherboards will be able to hit higher clocks and tighter latencies on the outer slot than the inner slot due to the trace length being more optimized. Yes, it will technically work in dual channel in 1 and 3 but it will work better in 2 and 4.

Other than that, this looks fine.

The reason why you couldn't put the cooler fan in the right place is because it looks like your dimms are in the wrong slots. They're supposed to be in the second and fourth slot from the left. If that doesn't work I would rotate the whole cooler so the fan is on the bottom so that the fan isn't directly working against your fans.

Hey, while you don't necessarily need a massive cooler for this cpu, it can never hurt. At 80 euros the be quiet! dark rock pro 4 is one of the best if not the best cpu coolers that you can buy. It has way more thermal capacity than you could ever want, its dead silent, and it has a nice black aesthetic.
