Lol, you're too much dude

2018-03-13 20:32:58 UTC

Even if I had a 2080Ti, Gsync is a whole different argument

2018-03-13 20:33:06 UTC

i just find it hillarious that ppl like you buy high hz monitors you cant even use

2018-03-13 20:33:09 UTC

but muh gsync

2018-03-13 20:33:11 UTC

Once you go to it, in games like CS, you truly can't live without it

2018-03-13 20:33:24 UTC

And guess what, I get way over my refresh rate on CS

2018-03-13 20:33:31 UTC

And the difference is spectacular

2018-03-13 20:33:41 UTC

congrats on getting 165hz in a 20 year old game

2018-03-13 20:33:44 UTC


2018-03-13 20:33:48 UTC

I bought my monitor after I already had the card

2018-03-13 20:33:59 UTC

Also I mean GO

2018-03-13 20:34:13 UTC

source is still running on quake engine

2018-03-13 20:34:31 UTC

and I didn't have the money to buy a new card and at this rate, this late and nearing new card releases, I'm just waiting and enjoying what I have

2018-03-13 20:35:06 UTC

I got my monitor like august

2018-03-13 20:35:16 UTC

And had my card since December 2016

2018-03-13 20:35:21 UTC

buying a second 1070 is a bigger brained move than buying a single 2080ti

2018-03-13 20:35:32 UTC

But the 1070 is too expensive right now

2018-03-13 20:35:38 UTC

they will prob outperform the 2x cards

2018-03-13 20:35:57 UTC

They will definitely outperform the 2x cards

2018-03-13 20:36:14 UTC

That's why I'm waiting rather than spending money on another of the same card

2018-03-13 20:36:31 UTC

I've done SLI before rather than wait and I won't make that financial mistake again l

2018-03-13 20:36:32 UTC

the card market is dead either way

2018-03-13 20:36:38 UTC

the best option is getting a prebuilt now

2018-03-13 20:36:41 UTC

Until new releases

2018-03-13 20:37:00 UTC

And I have everything else in my rig pretty set so I don't have a need for a new PC.

2018-03-13 20:37:09 UTC

Anyways, I have to take a shower

2018-03-13 20:37:18 UTC

Nice and also terrible talking to you

2018-03-13 20:37:25 UTC


2018-03-13 20:37:28 UTC

anyway my point was sli is the only real way to achieve high hz/4k

2018-03-13 20:37:34 UTC

enjoy the angry shower <:GWjiangoPepeFedora:389447036329656323>

2018-03-13 20:37:46 UTC

1080Ti versus 1070SLI

2018-03-13 20:37:58 UTC

980ti sli beats 1080ti

2018-03-13 20:38:02 UTC

1080T is more practical

2018-03-13 20:38:14 UTC

The 980Ti is in some cases better than the 1070

2018-03-13 20:38:22 UTC

But then you're limited to 6gb of vram

2018-03-13 20:38:38 UTC

And much more power draw, like WAY more

2018-03-13 20:38:46 UTC

400w easily under load

2018-03-13 20:38:50 UTC

Or more

2018-03-13 20:39:00 UTC

From just the cards

2018-03-13 20:39:26 UTC

And the performance is only a little better, but some games with no SLI support or trashy optimization it's just back to not being worth it.

2018-03-13 20:39:30 UTC

Especially for cost

2018-03-13 20:39:36 UTC

So single best card every time

2018-03-13 20:39:45 UTC

If it just comes out and you want more, then SLI the best card

2018-03-13 20:39:51 UTC


2018-03-13 20:39:56 UTC


2018-03-13 21:38:15 UTC


2018-03-13 21:39:26 UTC

980 Ti in SLI beats 1080 Ti in synthetic benchmarks, you mean

2018-03-13 21:40:32 UTC

in real games, like GTA V, Crysis 3, PUBG, etc. are a different story

2018-03-13 21:41:34 UTC

Synthetic benchmarks show the 980 Ti in SLI beating one 1080 Ti, simply because synthetics have perfect scaling of GPUs

2018-03-13 22:11:52 UTC

depends on settings :^)

2018-03-13 23:10:32 UTC

I mean, I don't doubt the 980Ti's in SLI on a well optimized SLI supporting game won't outperform a 1080Ti, because they likely will, but the inconveniences of SLI outweigh the benefit unless you already have a flash shop card and "need" more performance...

2018-03-14 01:18:22 UTC


2018-03-14 01:18:32 UTC

sorry for late replying but this sounds good

2018-03-14 01:20:17 UTC

so what i got from this was that

2018-03-14 01:20:21 UTC

yo @Bearchoyboi don't SLI, get best single card for 2k 144Hz monitor

2018-03-14 01:20:36 UTC


2018-03-14 01:20:39 UTC

1080ti or wait for volta

2018-03-14 01:20:54 UTC

and get a 2k 144hz/165hz IPS GSYNC monitor'

2018-03-14 01:21:02 UTC

best experience by far

2018-03-14 01:21:05 UTC


2018-03-14 01:21:12 UTC

165 hertz kinda hurts my brain with the fluidity lol

2018-03-14 01:21:13 UTC

expensive though

2018-03-14 01:21:21 UTC

trust me, it's so good

2018-03-14 01:21:28 UTC

especially with GSYNC

2018-03-14 01:21:33 UTC


2018-03-14 01:21:50 UTC

well i have 30 days to decide to upgrade to 1080ti

2018-03-14 01:22:04 UTC

if it hurts your head and you're ok with gsync off, monitors like mine "Acer XB271HU" you can use ULMB

2018-03-14 01:22:05 UTC

i just returned my 1050 ti and bought a 1070 from micro center and their return policy is great

2018-03-14 01:22:24 UTC

ultra low motion blur, may help with seeing things while moving and maybe making you less sick

2018-03-14 01:22:43 UTC


2018-03-14 01:22:45 UTC

how much?

2018-03-14 01:22:49 UTC

from what I hear, micro center is awesome. I don't have any in my area though.

2018-03-14 01:22:54 UTC

dang feelsbadman

2018-03-14 01:23:00 UTC

how do you get your tech?

2018-03-14 01:23:03 UTC

newegg or frys

2018-03-14 01:23:05 UTC

like $700 for my monitor'

2018-03-14 01:23:18 UTC

$700 isnt bad for the experience you describe

2018-03-14 01:23:19 UTC

I do newegg, Amazon and occasionally best buy

2018-03-14 01:23:26 UTC

lmao best buy

2018-03-14 01:23:43 UTC

don't listen to dont ping me on the gsync issue, he doesn;t even know what it is

2018-03-14 01:23:49 UTC


2018-03-14 01:23:51 UTC

it will change your gaming experience a lot

2018-03-14 01:24:15 UTC


2018-03-14 01:24:22 UTC

best buy has price match and sometimes carry things like samsung evo and pro ssd's in store so you can get them right away

2018-03-14 01:24:41 UTC

i mean the only games i play are league, overwatch, tw3, and pubg

2018-03-14 01:24:48 UTC

not sure if i need that much fluidity

2018-03-14 01:26:15 UTC

it's not just fluidity, with GSYNC you have even frametimes which means the amount of time between each frame being displayed isn't sporadic. It also 100% eliminates screen tearing which exists with every monitor. Sometimes you won't notice you have it simply because your eye isn't used to not having it

2018-03-14 01:26:31 UTC

it also makes lower framerates MUCH more bearable

2018-03-14 01:27:12 UTC


2018-03-14 01:27:23 UTC

what gpu setup do you have

2018-03-14 01:28:03 UTC

so with my monitor, unless you're shipped/buy a defective one will get incredibly good color accuracy for anything without quantum dot/oled, 165hz, ULMB, GSYNC and an IPS display

2018-03-14 01:28:19 UTC

I have a GTX 1070, am waiting for GTX 2080Ti before next upgrade

2018-03-14 01:28:37 UTC

I don't intend on wasting money unless I know my next purchase will hold me off for a good while

2018-03-14 01:28:41 UTC


2018-03-14 01:28:46 UTC

2080ti jesus

2018-03-14 01:28:53 UTC

thats gonna cost a lot

2018-03-14 01:29:23 UTC

also SLI has downsides like many games have no support for it so only one of the cards will do any rendering, and the games that ARE optimized for it are often poorly so

2018-03-14 01:29:33 UTC

I've had it in the past

2018-03-14 01:29:41 UTC


2018-03-14 01:29:59 UTC

but if i got it would i need watercooling

2018-03-14 01:30:07 UTC

The cost of 2x1070's versus 1080Ti and the pros and cons of both, 1080Ti, or volta card is best option

2018-03-14 01:30:14 UTC

no, you wouldn't

2018-03-14 01:30:17 UTC


2018-03-14 01:30:22 UTC


2018-03-14 01:30:34 UTC

i might return my 1070 buy 1080ti founders edition and overclock the shit out of it

2018-03-14 01:30:34 UTC

the only thing I recommend watercooling for is the CPU, that's basically a requirement

2018-03-14 01:31:14 UTC

well if im already buying the watercooling infrastructure for cpu i may as well also do gpu right>

2018-03-14 01:31:23 UTC

matter of fact, if you need PC hardware help, you can message me personally if you want a relatively quick response and are looking for somebody with experience and knowledge

2018-03-14 01:31:33 UTC

alright sounds good

2018-03-14 01:32:00 UTC

most people use AIO watercooling for the CPU, where you mount a radiator for the CPU only with flexible tubing

2018-03-14 01:32:06 UTC


2018-03-14 01:32:11 UTC

is maintenance hard

2018-03-14 01:32:40 UTC

there is no performance advantage with custom watercooling, the BTU transfer of the radiators are the same, and the oumo on AIO's is slightly overrated on BTU for quality assurance

2018-03-14 01:32:51 UTC

and there is practically no maintenance for AIO watercooling

2018-03-14 01:32:57 UTC


2018-03-14 01:33:00 UTC

how much does it cost

2018-03-14 01:35:36 UTC

youve been typing for quite a while seΓ±or

2018-03-14 01:39:51 UTC

If you aren't going to constantly OC your CPU relatively far with noticeably higher than stock voltages, then you'll probably do good with a 120mm/140mm radiator those can be as cheap as $60 and as much as $90. If you want more surface space to keep the CPU unnecessarily cooler or want to try for more drastic OC which requires much higher jumps in voltage per small increase in frequency for maintaining stability, then you're going to want a minimum of a 240mm radiator, which is 240x120mm meaning it takes 2x120mm fans if your case has a place to support that. Higher voltage (especially beyond a certain point depending on individual model and pin size) is going to reduce the longevity of the CPU, even if you keep it cooler, and if going on the very edge of safe voltages and max stable frequency at those voltages, you can degrade the CPU enough within months of use depending on how much your computer is on every day to where you need to step down the frequency at that same voltage to maintain stability. This is why I don't recommend going extreme, but going between boost and extreme is relatively the most practical point if you're gonna cool with a higher BTU rad. 280mm rads are 280x140 if your case can support that on the top (preferably). What is your CPU and what are your intentions?

2018-03-14 01:40:59 UTC

i7 7700k

2018-03-14 01:41:21 UTC

what fan expandabilitydo you have in the top of your case?

2018-03-14 01:41:28 UTC


2018-03-14 01:41:32 UTC

i have a mid tower corsair

2018-03-14 01:41:39 UTC

send me a link to the case

2018-03-14 01:42:08 UTC

think its this one

2018-03-14 01:42:25 UTC


2018-03-14 01:42:26 UTC

its not that

2018-03-14 01:42:28 UTC

this one

2018-03-14 01:42:58 UTC

btw, the i7 7700k is very efficient and can overclock to a pretty decent clock (for most) without excessive voltage, so if you tweak your CPU to run the highest stable frequency at 1.3-1.35V you'll get the most out of your CPU long-term

2018-03-14 01:43:21 UTC


2018-03-14 01:43:25 UTC

how do you overclock cpu?

2018-03-14 01:43:36 UTC

1.35 over 1.3 will have a slightly higher degradation rate, but the benefit may be as much as .2ghz more stable which is a lot in long-term

2018-03-14 01:43:37 UTC

is it like gpu where all you have to do is download afterburner

2018-03-14 01:43:53 UTC

you have to overclock through BIOS, I can walk you throught hat after you already ahv ethe new cooler

2018-03-14 01:44:02 UTC


2018-03-14 01:44:11 UTC

I don't recommend OS OC for cpu as much

2018-03-14 01:44:26 UTC


2018-03-14 01:45:39 UTC

is the $60-$90 radiator absolutely necessary

2018-03-14 01:47:33 UTC

the whole AIO is that cost

2018-03-14 01:47:47 UTC

tubing, rad and pump all in one piece

2018-03-14 01:50:16 UTC


2018-03-14 01:50:30 UTC

also I found out the front of your case will accept a 360mm aio

2018-03-14 01:50:33 UTC


2018-03-14 01:51:40 UTC

you dont need water cooling. just install an intake and outtake fans and you should be good.

2018-03-14 01:51:46 UTC

dont listen to these fags

2018-03-14 01:52:15 UTC

so I recommend doing a intake fan in the bottom front, with the top 2 as out with a 240mm aio, and the bottom case fan if there is a slot for one as an out with the fan on the back as intake, so you can minimize dust and sustain decent pressure

2018-03-14 01:52:29 UTC

@SchloppyDoggo we're talking about CPU lol

2018-03-14 01:52:34 UTC


2018-03-14 01:52:40 UTC

he could do a 212evo, but for his use it isn't practical

2018-03-14 01:52:48 UTC

get an i7 4.2ghz with the turbo option

2018-03-14 01:52:53 UTC


2018-03-14 01:53:00 UTC

he has a 7700k

2018-03-14 01:53:01 UTC

nice bait retard

2018-03-14 01:53:42 UTC

im fucking with you all

2018-03-14 01:53:50 UTC

im running a celeron with integrated graphics

2018-03-14 01:54:04 UTC

i run minecraft at 3 fps

2018-03-14 01:54:37 UTC

every day i want to kill myself when i see a little child holding a flip phone with a better processor than me

2018-03-14 01:54:40 UTC


2018-03-14 01:54:56 UTC

hOw dID YoU fiND oUT?

2018-03-14 01:55:03 UTC

you're mom gei?

2018-03-14 01:55:09 UTC

your granny tranny

2018-03-14 01:55:35 UTC


2018-03-14 01:55:44 UTC

in runescape level 95 was half the way to 100

2018-03-14 01:56:04 UTC


2018-03-14 01:56:07 UTC


2018-03-14 01:56:13 UTC

It is 92

2018-03-14 01:58:08 UTC

note that replacing CPU cooler requires thermal paste

2018-03-14 01:58:22 UTC

I recommend Arctic Silver 5 paste

2018-03-14 01:58:44 UTC

very viscous, long lasting and best thermal transfer compound on the market

2018-03-14 01:59:09 UTC

especially if you intend on frequently/constantly running high temps/high load

2018-03-14 02:00:18 UTC

im not like mining BITCOIN on it

2018-03-14 02:00:55 UTC


2018-03-14 02:01:02 UTC

i might just do regular paste

2018-03-14 02:04:05 UTC

imma blast too laters

2018-03-14 02:13:49 UTC

arctic silver 5 is cheap, I recommend it for any rig

2018-03-14 02:13:56 UTC

it's almost just as cheap as any other paste

2018-03-14 02:14:04 UTC

2018-03-14 02:18:02 UTC

if anybodys got a copy of halo CE hmu

2018-03-14 02:18:14 UTC

tryna get the full version without buyin some sus amazon bs

2018-03-14 02:18:27 UTC
2018-03-14 02:19:35 UTC


2018-03-14 02:20:16 UTC

I was just saying that tis' cheap

2018-03-14 02:20:16 UTC


2018-03-14 02:20:30 UTC


2018-03-14 03:27:44 UTC

you can't get it on PC Jimbo

2018-03-14 03:28:11 UTC

wait what

2018-03-14 03:28:14 UTC

it's on PC now?

2018-03-14 03:28:23 UTC


2018-03-14 03:28:34 UTC

but is there multiplayer

2018-03-14 03:58:32 UTC

who the fuck listens to bob dylan

2018-03-14 03:58:35 UTC
2018-03-14 04:09:46 UTC


2018-03-14 04:09:51 UTC


2018-03-14 04:09:54 UTC


2018-03-14 04:10:13 UTC

why wouldn't you listen to bob dylan

2018-03-14 04:10:18 UTC

he's awesome

2018-03-14 04:24:38 UTC

halo 2 on pc never had multiplayer, but there is a mod for it that has multi, idk about ce mod/original multi

2018-03-14 04:25:49 UTC

you really still recommending ppl buy 1440p 60hz+ monitors to run on a single card when we established even a 1080ti cant properly utilize them?

2018-03-14 04:25:52 UTC


2018-03-14 04:26:23 UTC

the performance of 2x1070's isn't practical, if he's gonna SLI he might as well spend the money for 2x1080ti's

2018-03-14 04:26:39 UTC

if you dont want sli then stick with 1080p or 60hz

2018-03-14 04:26:58 UTC

a single card cant run high refreshrate past 1080p

2018-03-14 04:27:00 UTC

it costs ore for 2x1070's more to run them, not all games support SLI, not all games have good SLI optimization and that is a heavy considering factor

2018-03-14 04:27:37 UTC

also even on well optimized SLI supporting games, you don't get a great advantage from 1070 SLI< so he might as well get a 1080Ti, and if he really finds it insufficient, then he can SLI that.

2018-03-14 04:28:27 UTC

this isnt an argument about sli its an argument about what you're spending your money on

2018-03-14 04:28:42 UTC

a 1440p monitor with a high refresh rate is worthless on a single card

2018-03-14 04:28:49 UTC

I run 1440p 165hz gsync monitor with 1x1070, I have not complained, if I really didn't think that I was getting good enough framerate witht he 1070, instead of investing ina $3500 acoustic guitar, I would have bought a 1080ti after reselling my 1070, lol

2018-03-14 04:28:51 UTC

unless all you play is csgo then its good

2018-03-14 04:29:02 UTC

but you also have to consider it from how I saw it

I knew that in the LONG TERM I wanted a 2k 120hz+ monitor with gsync, but already ahd the 1070

2018-03-14 04:29:43 UTC

why are you niggas so hung up on 1440p <:GWragTbhfam:390321741525942272>

2018-03-14 04:29:47 UTC

I can live comfortably with the 1070 for now, so I will wait for 2080ti

2018-03-14 04:30:30 UTC

1070 is great for 1080p monitors

2018-03-14 04:31:03 UTC

because solid 4k 144hz gsync monitors aren't on the market with good pricing, and they demand way more than we can get now. Even dual sli 2080ti's wouldn't perform well with 4k, 2k is only a bit more demanding than 1080, but 4k versu 2k is drastic

2018-03-14 04:31:17 UTC

4k past 60hz <:GWnanaFeelsDumbMan:392308462165426176>

2018-03-14 04:31:57 UTC

2k 165hz with gsync and 1x1080Ti is aweosome and more practical than 2x1070's

2018-03-14 04:32:00 UTC


2018-03-14 04:32:06 UTC

because of the SLI downsides

2018-03-14 04:32:06 UTC

2018-03-14 04:32:44 UTC

2018-03-14 04:32:58 UTC

what if you buy founders edition and overclock the bejesus out of it

2018-03-14 04:33:21 UTC

you do realize hz is the monitor refreshrate, not output framerate, right? just because you can't get consistently the full frequency's max displayrate

2018-03-14 04:33:26 UTC

isnt FE using a shitty cooler and power phase setup that isnt good for OC

2018-03-14 04:33:28 UTC

does not mean you can't run the monitor

2018-03-14 04:33:44 UTC

FE uses a blower style cooler which is good for servers

2018-03-14 04:33:47 UTC

a lot of my buds say fe has more room to oc

2018-03-14 04:33:48 UTC

and mining rigs

2018-03-14 04:34:00 UTC
