Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

in Milliways
I just put together a ryzen 3700x based system but since the new cards were coming out I stuck a 1050ti in there temporarily, it's all I had. Everyone says wait but the thing is it could be AFTER the holidays till a lowly serf like myself can get a hold of a 3070. The temptation to say hell with it …

Re: Gaming headset/chair recommendations

Ended up getting this chair from Global Industrial: https://www.globalindustrial.com/product/itemKey/32220102 Rated for (24) hours, price seemed right. Couldn't see plopping a wad of cash on a gaming chair when the popular brands are asking at least 400.00 and on up. I'll do a report on the chair as …

Re: Is a Voodoo 2 worth the cost

I've had my V2's for about three years now, usually running in tandem with a GF2 ultra. Honestly more often than not I would use the GF2. Having SLI vintage is cool though but really my eyes can't tell much difference but then again I'm no graphics professional as some of you out there. Food for …

Just an update, ended going with the Sennheiser gsp 370. Got it on Amazon for less than 200 bucks. Being hearing impaired, I'm not going to pick up on the "minute nuances" of these. I'm sure they'll sound fine to me. When they come in I'll give my official take. Still looking for a decent chair. …

Gaming headset/chair recommendations

Recently came down with the Corona so quarantined for now. Since working at home have need of a few items so could use some feedback on headsets/chairs. Here's a list so far: Headsets - Razer Kraken Ultimate/Corsair HS70/Hyperx Cloud Alpha/Steelseries Artis 7 Wired/wireless don't matter. Chairs - …

Re: Heated subject matter - Ryzen 3700x

Your problem is 100% the wraith cooler. I'm running a 3900X in a tiny ITX Silverstone SG13 case and I often idle in the mid 40s. Usually 45-47C. Less by 1 or 2c when it's not hot in my room. Ryzen is a hot pepper chip. Get something like a 240mm AIO or a beefy air cooler (NH D15/Dark Rock Pro) if …

2200 MHz in Cinebench sounds like thermal throttling to me... Make sure that your motherboard is not overvolting the CPU, try and play with the BIOS voltage offsets and run benchmarks until you notice any instability. Did some more testing. With a negative offset of -0.0875 on the voltage, …

Re: Today is Windows 95 25th Birrthday. Share your memories

in Milliways
Xmas of 96 as a "family" present got the 1st PC, a 133mhz pentium with a 15" monitor, win95 pre-installed. That was a 1600.00 present back then! Remember playing Duke Nukem 3d and Front Page Sports Football Pro 97 on it, good times. Also recall a lot of lockups and freezes, reboot rinse and repeat! …

The real solution is to get rid of the Wraith Prism. Get yourself a decent but still rather cheap cooler like this Arctic Freezer 34 eSports Duo and problem solved. My overclocked Ryzen 3600X is sitting at 33-34 degrees C in a 21 - 22 degree room temp. The Wraith Prism is not a bad stock cooler (in …

Re: Heated subject matter - Ryzen 3700x

Have you checked if the CPU's speed actually decreases when sitting idle? CPU speed stays around 3500ish idle but the weird thing is during Cinebench it goes DOWN to 2200ish, that doesn't make sense to me. Tried to jack the speed up but temps reached 90 whew! Finally re-installed the cpu cooler and …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
With my new Ryzen system up and running mainly playing the following: -Doom 2016. I know, late to the party. Even with 1050ti card looks great, wish I was a natural at shooters. -Witcher 2. So far only in the arena "free for all" combat. Seems easier than Witcher 1, graphics look good. -Wolfenstein …

Re: Heated subject matter - Ryzen 3700x

Under Ryzen Master I cut the voltage down to 1.25, that brought the temps down somewhat to 46-50c. My cpu fan is running at 77%. Fan curves are mystifying to me, need to watch some videos on them. In the bios the temp is 36c, voltage is set at 1.35 The power plan is set at balanced, and deeper into …

Heated subject matter - Ryzen 3700x

Sorry if this is beyond the usual scope but I need some help and all you out there have never let me down. I've been having hi temps at idle of about 52 degrees C and can't seem to bring it down. Now mind you it seems to game fine with temps reaching mid 60's playing Doom 2016 and such. Tried …
