    I have a 4080 and an i7 10700. Will upgrading to 13600K make any difference in 4K gaming?

    Okay so I can't link or share my score with you because I'd break my NDA. I never actually run Extreme but here is a "snapshot" of my 6700XT/5800X3D for "reference" Specs are in my profile.

    Correct. I have a PCI3 NVME in that slot. That still doesn’t change anything. Slot 2 4.0 is controlled by the chipset or anything to do with chipset temps.

    AMD X570 Chipset and Mobo Cooling Solutions

    Makes sense but I’m running a 4.0 NVME in the slot so I’d just be hobbling it. I‘m fine with 55C considering.

    AMD X570 Chipset and Mobo Cooling Solutions

    Well it controls the 2nd 4.0 NVME port I have my game drive on it so it’s pretty much always being used.

    Okay so I added my PCH to my main monitoring screen max temp is 55C on my X570S which is 7C cooler than my previous X570 averaged with the fan set to its max performance.

    What's your latest tech purchase?

    I ordered mine in August I got an email it was going to be January. Imagine my surprise when a few weeks ago while in hospital for pneumonia it had shipped I had to get out of there fast as I had a week before it would be sent back. As for the backlight for me it’s just “extra” as I’m already...

    I’m at 3440x1440 so yeah it’s not really getting worked hard either.

    What's your latest tech purchase?

    Welcome to the family! Its literally perfectly set up out of the box and everything just looks amazing. Only beef tho I intend to baby rhe crap out of it is the daily pop up to run the Pixel Refresh, that alwa seems to happen at the most inconvenient of times, but I’ll never skip one either…

    5800x3D upgrade

    Total game changer for me when I was told about it. I was also given some clarification on it. It’s basically Curve Optimzer. 3 levels that equal -10 -20 and -30 equivalent of CO. Happily running Level 3 with great temps and good MT scores to boot.

    I just love seeing my 3D smoking so many CPUS :love:

    FEAR 3: it did get better

    It did not…was the most watered down version. Was it still fun? Sure but was by then just another on rails generic shooter.

    What's your latest tech purchase?

    Totally! I mean I didn’t even mean to get a 3D i just “messed up” bad and killed my 5600X. This one for my usage just made sense if I was staying on AM4.

    What's your latest tech purchase?

    Yes I am using Kombo Strike Level 3. I strictly game on my PC with the odd "reference bench" if I switch GPU drivers so I it will never be under any "hard load" constantly but I do appreciate your clarification on the Kombo Strike levels I assumed it was doing that just didn't have any hard...

    What's your latest tech purchase?

    Seeing as I just got one could you just give me a brief scenario on how your first one went down? I am just running mine "stock" minus the "Special Sauce" setting MSI provides in the BIOS for the 3D that actually lowers the voltages overall and has lowered my temps in MT loads considerably so I...
