  1. I think this kind of saving really only works if you invest it in optimized RAM kits, that's the trade off I chose to make, an extra 6.04% speed in CPU (my own results with my settings) once the RAM bottleneck is removed is worth it but it remains a personal choice made on budget, you can obtain the same gain with a 5950X if you have the money for both CPU and RAM. From where I stand when it comes to upgrades or choices of specific gear, there are different results I'd be looking for: Efficiency, 3600X to 5600X <> 21%. RAM anyting 16 CL two rank to my actual G.SKILL kit <&
  2. Yeah, they are serious about what they do, but as for every single company offering PCs bundles they have to cut corners, that's why I prefer to build mine myself, the Corsair Kit is good but no match for a CL14 and if one wants to run high settings in VR, especially DCS maps, optimizing the RAM is a must, so I wouldn't have chosen this kit. Then I'd rather run the cheaper 5600X for gaming and use the saved dosh (up to £350+ difference in the UK!) for a low latency 1 rank kit, since DCS which is my priority game uses mostly 1 Core, the 5900X won't make much difference especially if
  3. Before committing to purchasing a headset, you might want to wait for the next generation, since anyway there is little chances for you to get your hand on one G2 right now. I had one, I liked the clarity of the optics but the FoV is not much of an improvement over the previous generation or even the CV1 I had before it and I was disapointed by the size of the sweetspot after a while using it. Then it was a pain in the @ss to get to work from day one, Windows Mixed Reality is trash to say the least and after a while the whole thing refused to work completely, it couldn't be id
  4. 1) Try with only the original kit. 2) We don't need the CPU data from CPU-Z but the SPD page which will tell us the number of ranks per stick as well as the XMP settings. As this shows, your actual setting is for 2133.84MHz, not 3200MHz, if that's the only setting your BIOS allow to boot with, then it rejects 4 X 3200MHz configuration, we need to know if the 2 X 3200MHz configuration can boot or if 2133.84MHz is the maximum even with two sticks, just make sure the sticks are those you had previously. Since you're planning to upgrade to a 5900X, start resear
  5. I understand that you could theorically cram a kit of 3200MHz 4 X sticks on this motherboard using this CPU, but perhaps only if with one rank per stick in his actual 4 X configuration would it be problem free, voltage is fully part of the issue, controllers have to set both bandwidth, frequency and voltage and two ranks X 4 stick at 3200MHz seems a bit much. The CPU doesn't seem to be designed for this configuration, number of ranks and frequency at DDR4, so the issue could come from this, having said that, I'm in the dark as I have no official confirmation of this, better he cont
  6. I was unable to figure if this came from the RAM frequency already too high for a 4 X 2 ranks configuration or not, because logically, this CPU should run with a RAM half that fast but with a latency below CL 16, which could be the source of the problem. DDR4-1866/2133, DDR3L-1333/1600 @ 1.35V https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/88195/intel-core-i7-6700k-processor-8m-cache-up-to-4-20-ghz.html At DDR4 he should be running 1866 or 2133 MHz, not 3200 stock, especially with 4 X 2 rank sticks, which can be an issue with the controller and cause it to throttle back, reas
  7. OK, do you mean that it won't work at XMP X 2.0? In any case, there are other areas where your system is loosing performances: Check CPU-Z SPD page for the number of ranks, latency, CL16, then your 1080 is also 8GB which makes a difference compared to the 11GB.
  8. CPU-Z tell you which speed your controller is going to run your RAM on the SPD page, if XMP 2.0 is selected on your BIOS options, the RAM will run at twice its speed.
  9. You need to look at the SPD page for the number of ranks, number of channels does concern mostly the motherboard. After you ran the test and validate it in their website, you'll have every single parameter for your PC, including the top frequencies.
  10. Everything slowing the game from your side is possible, including broadband, but let focuse on your system basics. Your motherboard supports a range of RAM going from 2133 MHz to 3866 MHz when O.Ced, but if you look carefully, the only frequency not O.Ced is 2133 MHz. To be honnest I don't know the full effect of using a RAM kit running at 3200 MHz from stock but if you take the way RAM works, the O.C options are meant to allow for options to run at twice the speed of your controller FLCK with a Ryzen, so you should have a look at your BIOS to see what your motherboard
  11. It's one hell of a cool feature, we're going to see more and more of those in the future which is good for us...
  12. I wish it had worked but it was to be expected. DCS is not the only reason why RAM can be an issue, people doesn't realize how important bounding RAM to CPU is, Intel like AMD, you can double the amount of RAM, if your CPU has to throttle back your buses because the controller can't cope, the extra RAM is wasted even if used. All this does is fill RAM space with data that isn't transfered fast enough through buses, and that's why RAM use looks so important, if it was used more efficiently, data wouldn't bottleneck and you'd see a lower amount of RAM necessary for the same a
  13. Then it's up to you to figure which RAM kit is best for Intel processors but there are RAM kits which are more or less suited for Intel CPUs, and as far as I know, they both make use of VRAM buses. Have a look at Intel users forums like I did for my AMD, experienced users will give you good tips on the subject such as this: Obviously your CPU is not reacting to RAM specs the same way as a Ryzen 3 or even 2, but it seems that the frequency is 2133MHz and the latency CL12. I haven't have a look at the way the Intel uses ranks, it might or not do rank
  14. Just for your info. I gained 6.04% CPU speed just by changing my RAM kit, same frequency (3200MHz), from 2 ranks 2 X 16 GB to a 1 rank 4 X 8 GB, that's close to 2GB in capacity if you compute just the percentage without taking the full effect of the more efficient RAM-to-CPU bound, because it didn't affect only the CPU but the GPU as well. https://forums.eagle.ru/topic/252271-amd-5000-series-cpu-performance-in-dcs/?do=findComment&comment=4552794 That's logical when you think of it, CPU uses VRAM buses consistently, even without the Zen3 Smart Access Memory, since Zen 2 sha
  15. Again, it's not just a question of adding RAM, especially with the Ryzen 3, it's a good bound between CPU and RAM that will make the difference for you. What works with those CPUs is the reduced latency, that's due to the Zen 3 architecture which is meant to use the buses to the full and the controllers which have limits in frequencies depending on number of ranks and sticks. If you use 4 X 2 ranks 3600MHz for example, your CPU controller will throttle down at full load, it will not be using rank interleaving regardless of the capacity of your RAM, 32 GB and 64BG alike,
