#3659 PC Build Thread in Hardware

I picked up a 3600XT today at microcenter and I think it does actually include a stock cooler the 'wraith thermal solution', although from what I read the 3800XT and 3900XT don't include stock coolers. Got a pretty good deal with $50 off bundle when I got a motherboard with the CPU (only options for the deal were some way overpriced one and the asus TUF x570-plus (wifi) which is a solid deal at only $140 (compared to $190 regular price). Cleaned out my old PC but didn't have any extra thermal paste to re-apply and didn't want to bother with it so I decided to treat myself and spend some extra money on just getting a whole new setup. The advice to try and overclock my 4770k was definitely the better play financially speaking cause I'm sure there's more performance to be squeezed out but at the end of the day I decided I wanted to do an upgrade. Seems like the stock boost to 4.5ghz is pretty solid but I think I'll try to overclock a bit and see what I can do with the stock cooler. Microcenter had the 3600X at $200 which is less than I was seeing it online previously ($220) so I think the release today probably will drive the prices down as people suspected. With the $50 discount from bundle slightly better performance I figured why not go for the 3600XT. All the other budget B450 and B550 motherboards were sold out online pretty much so I'm happy with this. Excited to put the best of the build together once things arrive.

#21 Favourite team core of all time? in TF2 General Discussion
nykbearodactylI gotta say 7s core of kaidus, raymon and thalash (starkie as well but wasn't on every iteration)Raymon wasn't on all the iterations of the team any more than stark was tho... Respect permzilla.

that is true but all the LAN iterations i saw them at raymon was playing (i58 onwards)

#95 RGB LAN 5 + TooManyGames in LAN Discussion

No I understand Fragile, I was more trying to ask if tf2 people actually going to be attending, cause personally it seems pretty irresponsible but maybe in September things will be better. Still pretty skeptical but it would be fun if possible, is there any way to get tickets and then potentially get a refund later if you decide not to risk it? Or would it be possible to purchase tickets later on closer to the event date itself? Maybe they sell out or become unavailable because planning/estimating how many people there will be, but would be a nice option to have.

#3652 PC Build Thread in Hardware

I appreciate the advice and stuff but I think the bad FPS has probably got something to do with my PC overheating or the overclock being messed up somehow because in the past I got pretty decent FPS and things weren't bad at all. Maybe it's just with 240hz I can notice the frames dipping moreso, I wouldn't say it goes down to 120 constantly on mids or anything either it's just sometimes I'll check net graph when it feels super stuttery on a mid and I see numbers like that. I originally set up the overclock fairly long ago when I wasn't very confident messing around with things so I can definitely go in and test it some more. I'm a bit confused about what you're recommending though Setsul, you're trying to say that waiting and getting the 3600XT is worth it right? Or at the very least waiting till it's released and then getting a then discounted 3600? And with regards to overclocking I'm not inherently against it, I just don't want to have to spend a bunch more money on a better motherboard and better cooler and all that stuff. Maybe it's possible to overclock slightly with the stock AMD coolers?
Also, I spoke to a friend who was in a similar situation who got a 3600 and some 3200mhz ram that he overclocked to 3600mhz and said his build gets really good frames definitely over 240 constantly, so I'm not too worried that a new build will be good enough. Clearly my PC is just old and hasn't been cleaned out and is probably overheating so saying it needs like +200% frames from 120 isn't really a fair comparison.

#25 6s role carry potential order discussion in TF2 General Discussion
SpaceCadetThis order drastically changes when you factor in what division or skill level you are talking about IMO. I think the class most in question is Medic as he can easily carry more at lower levels than at higher levels. His direct impact on the game has a higher potential at lower/mid levels and therefore carry more for the team.

At lower skill levels, a really good medic can mitigate mostly all the mistakes those type of teams make by just being in the right position or being able to read a fight AKA game-sense. I'm not saying this isn't done at the highest levels but the medic typically isn't the class who is making that happen in those cases.

At lower levels this is definitely true, having a medic who's in the right position and survives can singlehandedly win rounds even if the rest of the team is worse (e.g., I rang for a friend's main team and the other team forced me to medic and despite every player on our team being heavily outdamaged and having more deaths than their whole team we still managed to win two rounds because I micro'd everyone and survived:

yightcombo scout > demo > flank scout/roamer map dependent > pocket > med (carry potential)

med > combo scout > demo > flank scout/roamer map dependent > pocket (baseline potential)

Not sure what 'baseline potential' means exactly but I will agree that in close matches medics' performances are some of the most important because it's so easy to drop players or drop uber or get caught out and lose rounds, but I would say that corresponds to the fact that medic is very easy to fuck up on. Not playing poorly does help your team but I wouldn't even say that's really carrying, if both medics are playing well it doesn't really make sense to say they are both carrying. And if one medic messes up and has a bad game and the other doesn't, it seems more fair to say the one who played poorly was holding their team back than the other medic particularly carrying.

That said, if your medic has crazy mechanics and simply doesn't die to bombers and has crazy surfs and stuff that would definitely count as carrying in my book. Strictly speaking, medic definitely has a huge skill ceiling and there is room to play optimally and never get caught out and have perfect games and arrow the enemy med and stuff like that, but I'm not sure how that compares to the carry abilities of other classes. It feels like on medic even if you are having your best game ever there simply isn't *that* much you can do so long as the other medic is playing decently, your teammates kind of have to step up and actually kill stuff even if you constantly give them uber ad pushes.

#18 Favourite team core of all time? in TF2 General Discussion

I gotta say 7s core of kaidus, raymon and thalash (starkie as well but wasn't on every iteration) has gotta be one of my favorites because it was awesome to see one core group of players reform every year and play so we'll together that they actually gave b4nny a run for his money every time. The other teams like nerdrage and full tilt were perhaps more fun to watch because they played so aggressively but I don't think any team stuck together as long or had such a definitive playstyle (albeit a tad slower than my personal liking, it won games). Epsilon was sort of before my time but I'm sure that core group of players had a similar appeal. I think 7 have a special place in my heart though just seeing them at all the iseries lans as well as the two rewinds, their grand finals were some of the craziest games I've seen and watching raymon and thalash play together is definitely a big inspiration to me. The old core of shade, blaze and b4nny was also obviously a huge inspiration as well but I feel like 7 probably takes the cake for 'favorite' just cause they were always the underdogs.

I really enjoyed playing with my boys on velocity and I feel like we kept a good core of people and improved together, but ultimately never really were able to break the 4th place curse which was a shame. Trip, sigh and I have stuck together from the Ford iterations to this season on MAL so that's been nice, always good to keep the calling and playstyles that you've developed and have them carry over without having to start over from scratch with a brand new team.

#3647 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Sorry was confused I guess, when I looked into it a lot of the intel 10th gen cpu's said they were pre-order only and weren't available but that probably is more to do with bad availability rather than a set new release date. And good call I'll try to clean it out and see if I can get it stable at 4.2. I know in the past I had it running at 4.2 but it was crashing, I probably just didn't test enough settings and it needed more voltage or something. Will test that out and then see how it goes, been a few years since I properly cleaned everything out when I got a new GPU.

#3643 PC Build Thread in Hardware

My 4770k I have at 4.1 ghz I believe right now and when streaming with NVENC my frames are mostly inconsistent and will go anywhere from 120-240+, will drop down on midfights and be pretty inconsistent which is annoying. I think I had it at 4.2 previously and it was definitely better FPS wise and stuff but it would crash occasionally so I turned it down. I think I'll keep with GPU encoding because TF2 isn't even much GPU strain anyways so I feel like that makes more sense. And are AMD releasing new GPU's around the same time as well or is 7/7 just Intel? Also, how much of a deal is hyper threading because it says that now the i5's have it in the 10th gen which seems pretty nice, would that be a big difference when compared to the 3600X which is also 6 core?
