#3519 PC Build Thread in Hardware

For anyone looking for RAM that is cheap but good, get any micron memory with AES in the part number. I have a 3000 mhz kit, It's 70 dollars and will overclock past 4000 mhz. Currently I run it at 3600 mhz with cl14 17 17 34 timing with rock solid stability.

This is what I bought, but anything with AES uses the same chips.
there's no real reason to get anything else unless you're looking to spend in excess of 100 dollars on memory. it's pretty much a perfect fit for ryzen, and it's good value on intel as well.

NursayNursayI am able to come but I need a ride. I live near between Wilkes-Barre/Scranton if anyone can get me. I also require room for my equipment if that isn't an issue. I will pay for gas. Add me if you can offer any assistance.

Still need help.

I'll add you on steam about possibly picking you up. I am coming down 81 from new york but Im bringing a lot of computers because it seems like every other invite player didnt get a rental. space is kinda limited. if you have another option please take it.

alfaI need a PC since I literally just got around finalizing my travel plans today and couldn't commit to a rental until I knew for sure I can go. If anyone can lend me a PC (I can bring a monitor) please message me through TFTV or add me on steam. I'll get you food/drinks in return or something.

Thank you.

I have a second spare pc if you can bring a graphics card.

garbuglioim a big dumb dumb and forgot to get my rental before it was too late, so if anyone has one they don't need for whatever reason or will let me use it for the tf2 tourney please dm me/add me on steam. I will pay u more than you paid for it!!!

sent you an fr about loaning you a pc for lan

#532 TF2 benchmarks in TF2 General Discussion
SetsulI'm still confused on the 3000 vs 3200 MHz part. Are those typo


The demo isn't sketchy, it's just broken like all old demos.

My memory speed was at 3000 for a long time and I only recently got it running at 3200. Also the site that demo is on is sketchy AF. it has nothing to do with being old.

I know the cpus are quite a bit different, but in the end it really doesnt matter. I damn near matched my friends 4770 with in a few % in terms of fps. This started with me watching him on twitch and noticing he was getting pretty bad frames, and I was like, huh, the 4770 doesn't have the bad of IPC, why are his frames so bad?

I started by using passmark to match my single threaded performance to his. And after doing that, I still got pretty good frames, way better than what he had. So then I was like, huh, the cpu speed should be the same, but I never touched my ram, and thats a lot faster still. So I dropped my ram speed to 1600, adjusted the timings, and suddenly I lose a bunch of fps and I'm getting more or less the same fps he his. I probably lost 30+ fps on average just from adjusting the memory speed.

How would the 3 GHz test simulate IVB/HSW and DDR3?
What timings did you use?
Steiner_R16 gb 3200mhz 15 16 16 32 timing (2800 mhz rated) dual channel ddr4Steiner_RI would low to see how even faster memory can effect fps but i can only overclock mine to 3000.This doesn't add up.

The rest seems more or less in line with the behaviour I saw years ago, so I guess my advice is still valid, which is good to know.

I used 9-9-9-28 for 1333 mhz. I used 10-11-11-30 for 2133. I choose 3 ghz as a middle ground between SB and haswell. A haswell i7 would be quite a bit faster as they run close to or over 4 ghz. Also my cpu has about a 10-15% IPC advantage. It would be cool to see someone with a 4790k and 2133 or 2400 mhz ddr3 test my results. It would also be cool for someone with high speed memory like 3600 can check to see if it scales that high. I'm getting about 8 fps per 200 mhz all the way up to 3200.

I used my own demo because the download for the demo in the beginning of the thread is sketch AF. I ended up getting the demo from a friend after i did all the testing and didn't want to redo it.

I5-8600k @ 5.2 ghz
16 gb 3200mhz 15 16 16 32 timing (2800 mhz rated) dual channel ddr4
vega 64

2639 frames 9.695 seconds 272.20 fps ( 3.67 ms/f) 17.228 fps variability

mastercomfig medium low

Now for something different

5.2 ghz
1333 mhz: 174.46 avg, low 90
2133 mhz: 218.83 avg, low 130
3000 mhz: 236.56 avg, low 150

3 ghz
1333 mhz: 131.68 avg, low 70
2133 mhz: 147.19 avg, low 90

The lows are not exact. they were all above the number but never below.

these are some more tests I did to test the effects of memory speed. I did my best to adjust timing to be in line for the averages of those speeds. I used my own demo on upward for this.I would love to see how even faster memory can effect fps but i can only overclock mine to 3000. the 3 ghz test is to try and mimic an ivy bridge or haswell cpu running ddr3. each test was ran 3 times. I did the log off and cancel trick to close all unnecessary tasks

#2 Do I need to upgrade PC? in Hardware

Im not at all surprised you're getting fps drops with that cpu. It was a middle of the road cpu when it was new. A 4790k would help significantly, especially when overclocked, but it's still pretty pricey and needs a good cooler.

smesialso still looking for cooler reccomendations if i buy the 8350k or the 8600k, and maybe the 8400 too since it doesnt hit the max turbo frequency with the stock cooler, is the H7 i picked enough to get around 4.5 GHz?

You could probably hit 5 ghz with that cooler if your chip is any good. 4.8 would be a pretty mild/safe OC though. I can run my 8600k at 4.8 ghz with 1.28 volts which is well within that cooler's capabilities. The H7 is one of the best budget coolers you can buy.

smesiits me again, more questions

would the hyperthreading in an i7 make a significant difference in tf2?
i realized i could buy a non-k 8700 within my budget, although i'm guessing cuz the max turbo frequency is 4.6 (which is prob what i was gonna look to OC to in both the 8600k or the 8350k if i bought those instead), i think i might need to buy a cooler in the future, i could also just ditch the ssd and buy a cooler off that but still.

besides that 8700 build, the only other builds i have in mind are just 8600k and the 8350k, also the 8400 build i posted last time

i'll prob upgrade my gpu to a 1050ti with the 8350k, or a 1060 3gb with the 8400 build, but you said you GPUs dont make that much of a difference in tf2 so

thanks again for the help

No. If anything the game will run better without the hyper threading. Not sure if TF2 will but CSGO does run better without it. It's pretty marginal though.

#3 Need a laptop (£800-ish) in Hardware

Dell xps's are pretty nice. You can get one with a quad core i5 and a gtx 1050 for around 1000 usd. Not sure what that would be in euros. DDR4 isn't cheap right now though so getting 16 GB's is going to cost you
