Kobay's Completed Build: Nero Scuderia

Kobay submitter 1 Build 2 points 15 days ago

Yep, basically all settings at max and no problems at all. However, one thing is that there is a bug in r6 that causes some viewmodel issues. It is a client side problem. Everytime I play r6, I get this flying debris that flies in front of me, which is quite annoying...

However, this is not a fault of the AMD drivers, https://steamcommunity.com/app/359550/discussions/0/1836811737970905486/

It's ironic how the game kinda runs better on AMD GPUs (better fps when benchmarking) but Ubisoft has still not fixed the issue...

Alright so I played around with overclocking, I recommend a video from joker productions that talks about overclocking the Vega 56 specifically. In the video he mentions increasing the power limit to 50% and undervolt the card to something around 1.1V, but increase the clock speeds about 2.5%. I was a bit too lazy to continue, but you can try. Games like F1 2017, Overwatch, Rainbow 6, Doom... run like a breeze. I personally played a lot of cities skylines, I had the settings at high and stuffed more than 1000 mods and assets, the game was still playable, around 40FPS when I zoomed out and 20-30FPS when zoomed in, but I bought 16GB of RAM and a powerful GPU for a reason, such as this, so I expected it to be able to handle it ;)

No problems whatsoever. I haven't really run any tests or did much multitasking workloads, but it is serving me very well.

Nope, works fine

Still a decent deal, brand new with 3 games. Pretty noice... Sapphire too, congrats!

I planned on getting an RX580 until I browsed a local 2nd hand website and found the deal. It was from a reputable seller too. Just landed on my hands a bit dusty but it came with the box and warranty. Very good deal indeed for that.

Forum Topic "EVGA G3 Sparked"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

That's what I thought, I know every PSU has a chance of failing but dang, tough luck. I would give EVGA a second chance if I could access it by tomorrow, but the RM650x is cheaper than the G3 here, not to mention the G3 I got was a 550w. Also, got the G3 on black friday, pretty sure it was more than a month ago, so I don't think they will cover the shipping costs.

Forum Topic "EVGA G3 Sparked"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Well I bought the PSU off amazon, and I didn't ask evga anything yet but I think I'll buy another PSU, probably the Corsair RM650x instead. The EVGA one I got was $40, but shipping that back may cost the same so...

Forum Topic "EVGA G3 Sparked"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

The store contacted me, my components are fine! Fans were spinning, only the power supply was affected, very lucky this time...

Forum Topic "EVGA G3 Sparked"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

I brought the PC and the PSU to a store where they could test which components are damaged, they have yet to call me about the situation, should be in 1-2 days. I live in Hong Kong, so shipping the PSU may be costly and not worth it. I have removed the PSU from the computer, though the cables are still hanging in the system, the PSU itself is removed soon after the incident.

Forum Topic "EVGA G3 Sparked"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

I kinda forgot, but can you give me a suggestion of what could happen in both situations?

Forum Topic "EVGA G3 Sparked"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Problem is, I don't know if my other components are damaged. If they are, will EVGA cover the costs or ship me the components? Another problem is that I have to ship it to EVGA overseas and I don't know if they would cover the shipping costs.

so the Mortar it is? Power delivery is basically the same right?

Forum Topic "Any reason to get ATX over mATX"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

afaik a larger case also doesn't help, a smaller case with similar airflow as a larger case should cool slightly better, please correct me if I'm wrong

Forum Topic "Any reason to get ATX over mATX"

Though I know that the dimensions of the Meshify C mini and the Original are the same except for the height, I'd prefer a smaller case.

I think you should wait for some 16GB RAM to drop to $100, I got my 16GB 3000mhz kit of RAM for $99, if you don't bother waiting a bit or spending a bit of time searching deals

Hmm they are out of budget because we get them here for more than $60. I had the G230 before I got the Cloud 2, comfort wise, they are ok.

I bought a R5 2600 already on black friday, however I do get the chance to wait for the Navi GPUs, hopefully they will be worth the wait :)

Sad that I can't wait for 2019, seems like a superb year for PC hardware

Forum Topic "What do you think about Ryzen 3000?"

Kobay 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

You still have to wait for prices to drop down to their MSRP. Ryzen 3000 series isn't just gonna drop all chips at once, buying a 2000 series now then upgrading a year or two later is still a very viable option.

Forum Topic "Ryzen 3000!!!"

Kobay 1 Build 0 points 3 months ago

Well I suggest waiting for CES. I bought a 2600 on black friday, so no getting a new CPU then, I'm a bit salty about that. However, I can still wait for Navi to announce, so that's that. Even if I get salty about such a performance increase, I can't really get mad, cus if the rumors are true, 2019 may be the most innovative year for PCs ever. We just have to get used to new parts getting better and better due to competition.

Forum Topic "CPU cooler for ryzen 1600"

Kobay 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

A couple options. Cryorig H7 is pretty noice. Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is still a pretty solid choice. I've heard about the Arctic Freezer 33 and the Deepcool Gammaxx 400. All of them should perform pretty similarly, as they are priced similarly.

For stock speeds the stock cooler is enough, won't cause any issues, it does what it's designed for.

I'll most likely uninstall the GPU and maybe CPU Cooler if I would transport my PC, then would it be much better?

Forum Topic "What is your favorite holiday"

Kobay 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Chinese New Year, the holiday I get to have dinner with my aunt and she makes great food, one of the best actually. Then I get to receive red packets, so I'd earn a couple hundred bucks every year, though my parents will give red packets to others as well.

Forum Topic "Hand carrying a desktop PC when taking a plane"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Let's say I only bring my PC on the plane twice a year, then will it be that important? I really don't think selling the Power Supply or returning it is an option. Let's say I'll get a NZXT H200, will transporting be too much of a problem for a 8 hour flight?

Forum Topic "Hand carrying a desktop PC when taking a plane"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Can't really do so, any ITX or SFF cases that can handle a PSU 150mm long (not including the cables if course), I already have a 550 G3 on the way so not really possible...

Forum Topic "How is your "luck" with monitors?"

Kobay 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Well luckily for me, my new Acer KG241P is working pretty wonders. No dead pixels, runs 120hz, I have yet to do some tuning with the colours though. Sadly I couldn't use my display port on my laptop, so I couldn't try 144hz, but it's alright. I haven't built my PC yet, so I couldn't really do much with this monitor for now, but it seems fine out of the box.

Bought it from Newegg btw. Though this may be off topic, my RAM packaging has a crack and kinda messed up a bit, even if it was packaged in another bag, with some cushioning, also from Newegg, maybe shipped by FedEx

Majorkamo's Completed Build: 800 dollar build for a friend

Kobay 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Great build for the money, one question though, how did you get a GTX 1070 for that price, is it used or you managed to get it on a sale?

Forum Topic "$300 GTX 1070 with freesync monitor?"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

mmh but they recommend a PSU around 750W, I only have a 550W, might not be enough

Forum Topic "$300 GTX 1070 with freesync monitor?"

Yeah but they are either blowers or have some horrendous color design (XFX)

Forum Topic "Dumb Question but kinda important"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Hmm but I didn't find good deals on Newegg yesterday, I managed to snag a EVGA G3 550 for $40 and Ryzen 5 2600 for $145 on Amazon though, pretty sweet. Only bummer is shipping for $19 combined but still pretty good.

Forum Topic "Dumb Question but kinda important"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

That's the struggle, I don't know if black friday deals are better than cyber monday deals, so I don't know whether to hold until then for some better deals. I guess I'll buy something I find good in terms of value when I see one

Forum Topic "900$ cad 5 2600 build black friday HELP!"

Kobay 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Then it's really up to you. You do get better gaming performance but not extremely significant, but noticeable. If its something like $50 difference then 1600 is a no brainer. If the difference is around $20 then 2600 would may be a better buy IMO

Forum Topic "900$ cad 5 2600 build black friday HELP!"

Kobay 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

And how much is the 2600?

Forum Topic "900$ cad 5 2600 build black friday HELP!"

Kobay 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Afaik you could get a Ryzen 5 2600 for $145 or a Ryzen 5 1600 for $130. For only $15 more for better gaming performance and better optimization, I would choose the 2600. (all in USD btw)

Forum Topic "Rx 580 or GTX 1060?"

Forum Topic "Rx 580 or GTX 1060?"

Kobay 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

It is really down to personal preference. Which software do you like? Freesync or G-sync monitor? Which games do you play? What power supply do you have?

RX580 Pros: Freesync monitors are cheaper, and afaik it does better in DX12 games and perhaps Rainbow 6 GTX 1060 Pros: Draws less power (though if u undervolt the RX580, there shouldn't be too much of a difference), does better in DX11 games and if you play a lot of battle royale games (fortnite and PUBG), it does performs better.

Conclusion? Buy which ever is cheaper for you. The performance difference is minimal between the two.

Forum Topic "First PC, any opinions?"

Kobay submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Well about the cooler :)

Its more of an aesthetic choice to be honest, I could root for a Cryorig H7 and it would perform not to far apart. I just dig the looks of the Dark Rock 4, and its mounting isn't that much of a hassle when compared to the Pro 4, that's a bit more annoying.

I'm not seeking 144fps in all games, but in games that matter like R6 or CS:GO, I think it should be fine.

Thanks for the advice mate
