Pookibear's Completed Build: The Lannister, a Custom Water Cooled Build

deathbat6916 1 point 1 month ago

I might just go ahead and spend more on a 5 or K7 or the Taichi then because I know people who've had voltage issues related to Ryzen Master and would rather do bios overclocking to avoid that issue. Not to mention I predict future Ryzen CPU's will overclock better.

How's the board? Been seeing weird reviews about its overclocking, with offsets instead of normal vcore and clocks and VRMs closer to that of a B350, but are those things true and would they affect my experience significantly when overclocking if I picked it over say, the X370 Taichi?

Wish you would have tested more games personally (Wildlands is really not the best benchmark, considering its iffy optimization, even The Division is a better benchmark choice imho), but this is a pretty solid build.

"Any modern i5 will perform admirably for nearly all gaming needs" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urf_vwc3hmE 100% usage at high settings should tell you something. and before you cry "AWPTIMAZASHUN" or whatever solely based on what company released this, it's actually GOOD that games are coming out using more than 4 cores. an older example of a multithreaded game is Crysis 3.

absolutely

manirelli's Build Guide: Great AMD Gaming Build

deathbat6916 1 point 4 months ago

Watch Dogs 2 also begs to differ, but it's also better on the optimization front than Wildlands so there's that^

Keep advanced graphics off and it'll stay above 100fps

deathbat6916 1 point 5 months ago

Yeah, definitely a good build regardless.

Robo_iii's Completed Build: $1000 Game Build with newly released hardware with room for future GPU improvment

deathbat6916 1 point 5 months ago

It should be fine for now. There will be the odd game out like Watch Dogs 2 that's thread bound no matter how fast an i5 can be clocked, but most games will do fine.

deathbat6916 1 point 5 months ago

IMO you could've gotten a better deal with Ryzen - that i5 unless it's heavily overclocked WILL bottleneck the 1060 in some games (i.e: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided) while ANY i7 from 2nd gen up will be fine at stock. Otherwise, good build.

manirelli's Build Guide: Budget Home/Office Build

deathbat6916 1 point 5 months ago

Meh I'll start with 16 and go to 32 actually.

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Enthusiast Intel Gaming Build

deathbat6916 1 point 6 months ago

Exactly hence why I'm going for the 6-core 12-thread Ryzen

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Enthusiast Intel Gaming Build

deathbat6916 1 point 6 months ago

There's a significant difference even at 2K with a game like Watch Dogs 2 tbh. 20+

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Enthusiast Intel Gaming Build

deathbat6916 1 point 6 months ago

I've seen as much as a 20fps boost moving to an i7, with a 1080 @ 1440p and ultra, and many of the older i5's will stutter trying to get to 60. Now that I think is just a matter of optimization issues, but it's definitely a CPU hog.

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

Ah, nice. Deus Ex is much more of a high-end game.

Lucas.Weinacht's Completed Build: My Gaming Setup

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

a 760 can run higher-end games like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided too, although to get 60 you will have to drop settings quite a bit down, at 1080p high it's in the mid-30s.

LAWISON's Completed Build: Budget PC (soon to be gaming)

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

Also definitely wait for Vega especially if you want to move to 4K. Deus Ex is ridiculously brutal on ultra and 4K.

SirHerpDerp's Completed Build: The "I shoulda gotten a 1080ti"

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

To be fair, you're gonna need a heavy core clock OC in some cases i.e: Deus Ex.

SirHerpDerp's Completed Build: The "I shoulda gotten a 1080ti"

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

I agree, but people expect ultra every single time and blame devs when they cant get 60 on ultra

LAWISON's Completed Build: Budget PC (soon to be gaming)

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

No problem man.

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Enthusiast Intel Gaming Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

If you run a lot of stealth games that actually can go up to 20-30+ FPS. Watch Dogs 2 is a prime example.

SirHerpDerp's Completed Build: The "I shoulda gotten a 1080ti"

deathbat6916 2 points 7 months ago

1070 peasants lol. Not even your 1080 can max every game and get 60 at 1440p, special snowflake.

manirelli's Build Guide: Enthusiast AMD Ryzen Gaming Build

deathbat6916 2 points 7 months ago

I would get a 1070 for 1080p personally ;P

Mullhar's Completed Build: Budget-Friendly Gaming-Capable PC

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

My i5 (3rd gen, equivalent to a 6400) bottlenecks my 1050 Ti at 900p in some titles, so I'd be surprised to see less of a bottleneck on this pentium with a 1060 at 1080p.

LAWISON's Completed Build: Budget PC (soon to be gaming)

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

In your case if you were to upgrade the CPU, I would go with a Ryzen 5 for budget, especially if you're a stealth player like me who plays a lot of Deus Ex and some Hitman. 4 threads won't really cut it in those titles, I own a quad-core i5 (not the fastest but it's one of the higher-end Ivy Bridge parts) and I find myself struggling to get full GPU utilization even on a GTX 1050 Ti...although this is at 900p so at 1080p a 970/1060 would be doing the same thing.

mike9409's Completed Build: Zenbox - Budget RYZEN 5 Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

Usually I get 60 to 80 in Deus Ex, but due to my CPU's limitations there are areas that drop me to about 45.

mike9409's Completed Build: Zenbox - Budget RYZEN 5 Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

idk man I've tried locked Deus Ex to 30 and it didn't feel very good, also MSAA is insanely demanding.

mike9409's Completed Build: Zenbox - Budget RYZEN 5 Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

Medium and 900p is where I'd probably go for Mankind Divided if I were you. I can run it at high and 900p at 60 to 80 fps, with a few drops into the 40s due to high CPU usage on a 1050 Ti. As for the RX 470, I'm not sure how much it is in CAD, but I've seen it go as low as $120 USD after a mail-in rebate with a free copy of Doom.

mike9409's Completed Build: Zenbox - Budget RYZEN 5 Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

At high 1080p Mankind Divided runs at around 35 fps, which is quite a bit below what I'd consider enjoyable. A 470 at those same settings which you can get for a similar price these days if you know where to look, runs it in the mid 50s. Wildlands, I don't even know but on my 1050 Ti I got about 40 at very high, 900p in the bta.

mike9409's Completed Build: Zenbox - Budget RYZEN 5 Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

Yeah, and with that 460 I don't expect him to play the highest-end games like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Ghost Recon Wildlands :P

mike9409's Completed Build: Zenbox - Budget RYZEN 5 Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

You could have went for 16GB but considering you went for an RX 460, it's unlikely you'd be playing high-end games like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided anyway.

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Enthusiast Intel Gaming Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

Remember that's in CAD.

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Enthusiast Intel Gaming Build

deathbat6916 2 points 7 months ago

^ you clearly have never played most modern stealth games, i7s do help. Just look at Watch Dogs 2.

Gameskiller01's Completed Build: Super Budget Gaming PC

deathbat6916 3 points 7 months ago

Add another 8GB and test out Deus Ex: Mankind Divided :)

manirelli's Build Guide: Budget Home/Office Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

BF1 can use up to 12 depending on the map, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided definitely can use more than 8 especially if it's combined with Chrome, and GTA 5 has a severe memory leak issue which makes it run pretty poorly past low settings on 8GB in my experience (heists and contact missions stutter like hell unless most settings are at normal, and my card is usually able to get 50-60 on ultra). I'm going to go straight to 32 when I do my next build because I also plan on rendering, streaming, 20+ Chrome tabs during a high end game, etc.

manirelli's Build Guide: Budget Home/Office Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

yeah, I'm recommending 16 in case people want to play the most intensive games out there while having a few tabs open in the background. Not everyone is just a simple COD guy.

manirelli's Build Guide: Enthusiast AMD Ryzen Gaming Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

10+ FPS gain in Witcher 3, for example.

manirelli's Build Guide: Enthusiast AMD Ryzen Gaming Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

"RAM speed doesn't even matter, it only provides negligible performance benefits." LOL... like 10+ fps in the Witcher 3 isn't significant.

manirelli's Build Guide: Enthusiast AMD Ryzen Gaming Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

It's for the best price to performance build out of those parts lol

manirelli's Build Guide: Budget Home/Office Build

deathbat6916 1 point 7 months ago

WHILE playing a game that recommends 16GB of RAM, even having one tab open will cause some issues with 8GB of RAM. Not Chrome itself taking 8. Game itself takes like 6.5 on my system without any tabs open and no problems. But add in a couple tabs = stutter. But during basic tasks Chrome puts me at about 5GB

manirelli's Build Guide: Budget Home/Office Build

deathbat6916 1 point 8 months ago

I'm saying a 750 Ti has to make way too many compromises to get playable performance these days. This game for example: https://youtu.be/K-p2S0Uzdl4 barely getting 30fps with decent settings until you turn resolution down.

manirelli's Build Guide: Budget Home/Office Build

deathbat6916 2 points 8 months ago

At 720p, low settings?

manirelli's Build Guide: Budget Home/Office Build

deathbat6916 1 point 8 months ago

LOL not even the 1080 Ti or Titan XP can do that in every title. Problem is, a 750 Ti is barely able to hit 1080p30 in the most demanding games even at the lowest settings these days. Maybe if he has a 720p display it won't be as bad, but the 1050 Ti is far more capable of modern AAA titles at around 1080p 60 depending on the settings. I'm running it at 900p right now but 1080p shouldn't be a problem.

manirelli's Build Guide: Budget Home/Office Build

deathbat6916 3 points 8 months ago

"or and r 7 or an 750ti"

Please tell me how that isn't recommending that graphics card.

manirelli's Build Guide: Budget Home/Office Build

deathbat6916 0 points 8 months ago

When I just have Chrome and basic tasks open I get very close to that 8GB limit so I wouldn't be so sure to be 100% honest

manirelli's Build Guide: Budget Home/Office Build

deathbat6916 1 point 8 months ago

You recommended a 750 Ti which in many 2016 titles is barely able to play in 1080p.

Nooo, stay the hell away from the 750 Ti these days unless you're going used.

spymamma22's Build Guide: My version

deathbat6916 1 point 8 months ago

A laptop 5400 that I used to use felt much snappier than the 7200 I'm using right now. Although, it is a ridiculously loud (no other drive I've ever owned has been this bad with noise, it's like a coffee grinder) SATA I drive that I have.

Happens on bot games too.
