Yep, I made a nice build list for my friend with a 7800X3D and a 4080 back a year ago, and he just went and bought a 14900k and 4090 instead. I spent like an afternoon of tech support as it didn't want to boot at all, ended up booting with one ram stick. Updating the bios helped BUT he's been getting regular crashes and BSODs since then and at this point I've given up on troubleshooting it.
I recommended two other friends to upgrade to a 7800X3D, and NONE of the two had any crashes in the last 6 months. (and one of them even has an 7800XT which works perfectly as well.)

RGB seems to be more expensive on RAM than anything else. You should avoid it like the plague on DDR5 since it only adds more heat.

If it's mostly for reading/browsing you're best served by a 27" 4K display that will blow your work HP out of the water in terms of clarity on account of higher pixel density. These models are also nearly half the price ($150-160):
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B081PSV6CC?psc=1
https://www.amazon.com/KOORUI-Computer-Frameless-DisplayPort-Mountable/dp/B0C6T7Y81Q
You'll need to buy a cheap monitor arm (like $25) to mount it vertically but should still come out well ahead budget wise.

The upgrade option would be this Acer 4K@144Hz for $300:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MQBDY91?psc=1
The added refresh rate improves latency and smoothness scrolling pages which you might find valuable.

Who cares, you should be waiting to see benchmarks before you jump into such a purchase.
>>
>>101362443
Right smack in the middle of the Raptor Lake 8+16 die is the ring interconnect fabric, with a ring agent interconnect per P-core and an agent per E-core block. Given you’re seeing a mix of IO related errors, including the out of VRAM errors (which is likely triggered by a PCIe operation failure), my gut says this is the system agent logic in a bad-state, specifically due to failing ring signaling at one or more ring agents or in the system agent itself, blocking and going through some form of error / bad-state recovery. My guess would be that this is due to electromigration degradation of the ring interconnect logic due to the very large Raptor Lake 900MHz top end ring clock bump by Intel, versus Alder Lake. This is why we’re seeing these issues in 13th and 14th gen, but not 12th gen.

>I heard about new gpus soon being annouced, and what about other parts like motherboards, cpu, ssds?
Depends on your budget anon. New GPUs are undoubtedly gonna be a ripoff no matter the performance. Motherboards will probably get slightly cheaper and CPUs have gotten quite cheap and so have SSDs. Jst go for first gen (7xxx) AM5 and buy a used GPU like a 3090, it'll be more than good enough and you can always upgrade later.
>>
>>101364260
I use an optane boot drive and have to say it's such a pain to have it mounted that I wouldn't want to get another
Using the optane m.2. adapter, you gotta make sure the cable length is long enough and that the motherboard m.2. heatsink doesn't interfere with it. And mounting it onto a pcie card just kills GPU airflow

I'm waiting for the AMD 9950x3D and AMD 7970 (GHz edition) GPUs.

Did you know Samsung tried to come up with M.3 as a standard? It never caught on seeing how there's only a single M.3 SSD, the PM983, but the idea was ahead of its time. Max capacity was 15.36TB on 64 layer NAND, mind you.
Now we have 200+ layer NAND and still 8TB max on M.2. M.2 is an abomination and needs to be updated as soon as possible. Nobody cares about speeds past 5000MB/s either

>>101364320
People worry about things too much nowadays
Took off all my M.2 board heatsinks, they are unnecessary and arguably just make things more difficult for when you want to add one.
Also in my experience, running an expansion card under a GPU with a slot gap makes zero difference

Your not gonna magically make a low power server by picking a low power CPU, it's not that simple.
Few tips:
Get the lowest end baord your comfortable with, powerful VRMs are inefficient at low loads.
80 plus means nothing for low loads (except for titanium) You must research individual units for low percent load efficiency, lower wattage PSUs will be better in general as system idle takes a larger percentage load to get you out of that low efficiency region.
The best thing for efficiency is a pico PSU but they can be limiting in the max wattage of the system
>>
>>101366338
So what's my best option?
Some 150 bucks chink NUC or there is any better options?
I need it to be able to run windows at the very least but ram and CPU usage will be minimal

>>101366368
NUC is fine, as is most office machines as they are designed to be idle efficient.
Plenty of mini PCs too out there

I want a PC for Unreal Engine dev and playing new games. Have two 1080p monitors, and when they need replacing I will get 1080p ones again. If I can run some AAA slop or Total War games at high-ultra at 60FPS or above I'll be happy. I'm not bothered about ray tracing.

I see the 4060 is regarded as underwhelming, but it'll be an improvement on my 1060, and I can't justify another £130 for a 7700 XT or an extra £200 for a 4070. I just worry about the 8GB VRAM as apparently that's quite low nowadays.

I don't really want to be spending over £850, I am a UKfag. This will be the first PC I actually physically build, previous ones have been prebuilt custom ones.

PNY XLR8, it's the best card that isn't a Strix or SuprimX, quietest card and impressive cooler
Only "issue" is the locked TDP compared to ultra expensive cards, just means that it won't go above 2800-2900mhz core clock in full load whereas you could get 3000mhz if lucky with a Strix (at the cost of retarded thermals and 430w power draw)
>>
>>101366824
Looks decent. As the other anon pointed out it's lacking for gamedev but it's all relative - this PC will beat the crap out of whatever you're running now.
I will say that the mobo is a bit weak for the CPU you want. It will throttle under 100% load which is presumably something you'll be seeing quite frequently. If I had another £50 that's where I'd put it. After that, with another £50, I'd get a better PSU. Something that'd survive some upgrades down the line.

Nvidias schedule is impacted by tsmc foundry availability.
If they cant get a reasonable node shrink they dont put out new stuff.
Now you have additional problems of AI server hardware demanding insane margins compared to gamer stuff while shipping thousands of units to a single buyer + amd not giving nvidia any competition. So nvidia has every incentive to just delay gaming stuff and use all node access they have to making server hardware.

100%. NVIDIA has done a two-year cadence for a new architecture since forever. A better question to ask is whether GeForce will follow a one-year cadence like the datacenter processors will (Blackwell 2024, Rubin 2025).

Blackwell GeForce doesn't look promising, same 4nm, about the same SMs (except for the top chip), but it is to be seen what the arch and GDDR7 can do.

I'm not really pro/anti AMD or Intel, but Intel has been such a disappointment since Zen came out. That being said, I bought a used 13th gen to use hardware acceleration on my Plex server and that has been awesome for the price. I already had extra DDR4 sticks and the DD4 mobo was cheap. I still use a 5950X on my main PC. I might upgrade with the 8xxx series, but I'm not really hurting for performance.

I never realized how much of a luxury a silent build is
Yea, you could get cheap fans and set the rpm to low, but your thermals are really going to suffer and they might still be noticeably audible. I know Noctua isn't recommended because their price-to-thermal performance is bad, but they are really quiet. The difference between a phantom spirit and nh d15 is $70, and that's just for the cpu cooler. There's also the graphics card, which you will very easily spend over MSRP for if you want a beefy cooler, which you do because the GPU is what's going to run the hottest. I think the worst part is how you can't cheap out on any fan/cooler, it's like a chain, all of it can be ruined by one bad part. And this is all even ignoring any coil whine

So what's the point of 200mm fans? I get they're supposed to run slower while pushing more air, but in the cases I see that are even compatible, half of the 200mm fans are just covered by the fan mounts anywhere, and even then, their static pressure is worse than normal fans, which is very important for getting through mesh and dust filters

3070 is almost half of 6700XT in vsync, is it really that much more efficient? I have a 75hz monitor, high fps isn't a concern but power consumption is an attractive point to consider. But then there's also 12GB vram for 6700XT versus 8GB for 3070.

I'm impressed by how chill this card is. The 660 ti in my stupid sister's computer idles at 65c while this RX 6600 doesn't get past 75c playing games like Lies of P and Robocop.

Firefox is shit with lots of tabs open. 16 or 32, doesn't matter. All it will do is how long you can keep those tabs open before firefox eats up all your ram. If all you're trying to prevent is so firefox doesn't use up a lot of ram, then no.
My solution is keep session when closed so you just close it and reopen firefox. it will clear the ram. it's just a temporary solution and it will happen again but you just do it again to fix it.
this is coming from someone who has 64GB of ram with a shit ton of tabs open in firefox.

Follow up question: is "Be Quiet!" a reputable brand if I want a quiet PC?
>>
>>101373716
Best way to keep a PC quiet is to keep far away from you so you don't even hear it. Or wear headphones/earphones.
But yes, they're a decent enough brand.

Hmm, what should I trust? Every single GPU cooler I've ever seen and basic laws of dissipating heat, or some random text image?
>>
I have a $500 budget and an old refurbished laptop that is running out of RAM.
Should I go ahead and buy a cheap 16 GB ram laptop or put that money into building my own pc? Or should I buy a pre built, I don't know if I'm tech savvy enough to not fuck up building my own PC.
Going to use it for recording and producing music.

I doubt it. Unless they redesign a mobo to be bigger than ATX the best way to make it work is to mount the GPU vertically.

I've not done meaningful overclocking since I took my Haswell-E 5960X Intel HEDT from all core turbo of 3.0ghz to 4.3-4.5ghz or so. Given that HEDT has basically become "server/workstation use multicore, junior grade. Stupidly expensive, but not AS stupidly expensive as Xeon/EPYC. Oh and it comes after the related generation of mainstream, not before" instead of enthusiast focused like it used to be, I decided to finally upgrade to a new AMD build
>7950X3D cooled with Arctic Liquid Freezer III, Arctic MX-6 paste, and Thermal Grizzly Contact Sealing Frame.
>Asus ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme
>Gskill Trident Z5 64GB DDR5 6000mhz CL30, EXPO
So I'm thinking of how to get the most performance as possible but I've not overclocked an AMD chip since the Phenom II days, much less a Zen one. It seems to be a lot based on PBO, though Asus boards (and a few others, depending on the name) also have something called DynamicOC that can swap between PBO and manual OC depending on the amount of cores being under demanding use. Any advice on CPU OCing for a 7950X3D? I know for the RAM I'll try to set it to the EXPO settings and provide its stable (been a few hours in memtest86+ so far, but the real issue is the CPU, for both OCing and also just being sure its working correctly with regards to scheduler, core parking, and other behavior.

I'd like to do as much as possible in BIOS/UEFI rather than depend on platform specific (especially proprietary or windows only) utilities. I know if I have a Windows OS at all it will need to be Win11 to deal with the new scheduler/thread director, and possibly even the damned Xbox Game Bar and Game Mode if its still used as the
>IF Game Bar/Game Mode THEN Cache Cores
stupidity which is woefully platform specific and limited compared to what kind of profiler/scheduler and heuristics that we should have gotten with these if they're going to have asymmetrical cache and frequencies. How well does Linux handle scheduling today?

Is there any better value for fans than Arctic P12 Max? I can get the 5 pack for ~7.35USD/fan

>>101374373
>700$ mobo for a Zen chip
buy intel, no point going for a 7950x3D if you're looking to overclock/tweak especially with this kind of unlimited budget
there's barely any performance gain to be found with AMD nowadays that wouldn't be highly silicon dependent AND require retarded amount of stable testing (that still may end up degrading and slowly corrupting your OS and files)

it's a lot more fun pushing the intel housefires as a hobby

if you want ddr5, then i5 13600kf, but tune down the default OC profile by turning off things like enhanced turbo.

Need advice on GPU's. I currently have a 2070 that I bought on short notice a few years ago after my previous card died, and I'm looking to upgrade, alongside going up to 32gb RAM.
I don't really need a huge upgrade, the 2070 is *almost* good enough for what I'm doing, but not quite.
Is the 3060 a reasonable choice? It's pretty significantly cheaper than all the other options, cheap enough that upgrading it again in a year or two isn't too much of a worry if I end up having to.
>>
>>101366071
t. Economically illiterate commietard
Guaranteed you have no coherent concept of real value. How sad.
>>
>>101374623
what if instead of a minuscule incremental upgrade you buy a slightly better gpu that lasts for the console gen pretty comfortably
>>
>>101361473
There not going to issue a fix because there isn't one why do you think there already prepping there new cpu's, intel doesn't give a fuck and this more than likely wont affect them at all and retarded goys will continue to purchase there garbage
>>
>>101374651
Seems like they already threw board partners under the bus by playing it as a power draw issue
>>
>>101374636
I don't really give a shit about console games or anything. I'm was at the 3060 purely because the price point for everything else is at least double its cost, and something like an RX 7900 currently costs more than my car.
>>
>>101374394
7800x3d or tuned intel if you trust jufus saying warzone has the amdip

you have to tune the i5 to get most value out of it due to low clocks tho lol

bigger means slower fan spinning while pushing more air = more silence
although going bigger might have effects on static pressure at some point, but not really relevant I think
so I mean if u can fit it 140>120
but not like it matters much

isnt a 4060 like the same price

>>101374690
used 3080 and sell your 2070, maybe? at least go for a RX7600 or 4060 if new.
you shouldn't bother with a 3060, its such a minuscule upgrade it's basically pointless.
>>

they’ll charge 500 for that motherboard
they are just stripping everything but adding lights everywhere

i think its being delayed to 2025
theres no news about it
also the console refresh, i think itll be 2025 as well

>>101374774
To say there's no second hand market here is an understatement, I have two PC's sitting around that I've built purely out of parts that I've replaced over the years and I can't even give them away.
I wasn't sure on the actual performance of the 3060, which is why I asked, if it's a tiny upgrade I'll look for something else. I am being told that the Rx 7700 is quite good. Any opinions on those?
>>
>>101374811
RX 7700 is a good card
if you're on 1440p I'd recommend going for the 7800 XT as they're usually very close in price (like 20€ difference in EU)

How does a cheap Gen 4 (ie. Lexar NQ790) compare to a high-end Gen 3 (ie. 970 EVO Plus) ?

Looking to upgrade to a new drive and the former is on ultra mega sale on Aliexpress
>>
>>101374878
One of the things pushing me to upgrade was that I wanted to get a bigger monitor and go up to 1440p yeah. The 7800 is about $130 more expensive here, but that's workable. Thought it's getting to the top of what I'd be willing to spend.
>>
>>101374898
Gen 4 has up to double the data transfer of gen 3. This does not matter.
>>
>>101374373
7950x3d is a locked cpu
It makes even less sense than the usual zero to buy an x670e extreme for this cpu
The best thing about this cpu is you can get away with a midrange b650 for 1/5 the cost of that board to get the exact same performance.

I'm just impressed there's a case that I consider the ideal size, fits my GPU and 280mm radiator, and is like $80-90. I wanted to try ITX and don't know what it would take for me to stop being satisfied with this config
>>
>>101374974
if they keep the insanely overpowered cooler from their 4070Ti/4080s and bring Kingpin's PCBs, they might just become the new EVGA

I hope they'll finally allow some form of unlocked TDP on their cards in the future.
it feels kinda dumb having such a beefy triple slot radiator but still see the card being power throttled in benchmarks despite thermals being sub 60°

No company will ever take the title of "the new EVGA" simply because no other company is willing to have as good support as EVGA has

>you have to tune the i5 to get most value out of it due to low clocks tho lol
>>recommending am4
There's nothing wrong with am4. And yeah 7800x3d if you don't want to be a cheap ass but you are gaining like 15-20 extra frames on a CPU that will sit around 30% load playing those games anyway because we're still very GPU bound in the current year. And you don't need to overclock just because it says i5....I only recommend underclocking for longevity since Intel memory controllers in 13/14 has known issues on the i9. With that GPU he will be above 120fps like all the time easily.
>>
>>101375777
Ik AMD wins most of the time and draws less power but for a Doritos 180$ more expensive I mean this is hilarious to me
>>
>>101375777
AM4 is silly to recommend with $140 Ryzen 7500F
>>
>>101375844
I don't see that price anywhere except ebay but after reading some up to date info the 7600X seems like the best choice though kind of a slightly cheaper side grade to thn i5, faster in games, slower in multicore apps like blender. What matters most is how much you want to spend on a GPU at higher res anyway.
