  1. Awesome that you've joined EHW! I just downloaded 1.7.1 and playing with/comparing timings from previous version. Updated interface is great. Not sure if you can answer, but I did have a question about 4 DIMMS. Regardless of import/manual, and other DRAM PCB revisions, I see Gear Down mode is always disabled now when calculating FAST at 3600 or 3733. (3733 had it enabled in 1.7.0) Particularly: ZEN 2, Samsung B-die, 3600 or 3733, DIMM Modules (4), X570, Calculate FAST Comparing to your 1.7.0 calculator, 3733 Frequency had it Enabled with 99% of the same timings. Any idea if 1.7.1 havi
  2. The case arrived a couple of days ago! Will hopefully find some time soon to throw a build together with it. I have a 2 month old so will need to sneak in parts between feedings/sleepings, lol. Are there rules to upload jpg's here? I tried uploading a jpg attachment but wouldn't let me. Guess I would need a certain number of posts?
  3. Wow great reference. Thanks! Taking a look now. I don't know if my chip can hit 1900 FCLK 24/7 stable, I'd like to keep it at a 1:1 ratio. I may try 1900 FCLK and 3800 and start at high cas like you said.
  4. Just wanted to follow up with the thread... I got my 2nd kit of F4-3600C15D-16GTZ I'd like to share what I did for Testing Purposes: 1) I pulled my original set of memory and replaced it with the new set. Same timings - 3733 Cas 14. Passed 60+ minutes with MemBench no issue. 2) I threw all 4 sticks in there and re-loaded Memory Defaults (2133, no idea what CAS or Voltage, but fully stock) Passed 60+ minutes with no issues. Here's the fun part, I started tweaking now... 3) I ran a DRAM Calc for 4 sticks at 3600. Plugged everything into the BIOS. Computer booted, but g
  5. Awesome! I agree with you guy. I just wanted a second opinion When I get my 2nd kit, I will take my first kit out and Membench it to make sure it's stable at the clocks I want, then I'll throw all four sticks in and tweak timings a bit. Thank you ?
  6. I know memory manufacturers don't advise to do this, but what's the general take on adding an additional memory kit of exact same kind to a system? I have two 8 gig sticks (16GB worth of RAM) but want to add another two 8 Gig sticks. My thought process would be to buy the memory, take the original memory out, put new memory in, and test it for errors and stability. Then I would add the other two (all 4 dimms in at this point) and re-adjust clocks, timings, and voltages. Is this a bad idea? I'd just hate to eat the cost of the two 8 gig sticks I currently have (good rated b-die memory)
  7. That's what caught my eye too. My gaming rig only has 16GB. Makes me wonder if It's time in general to upgrade to 32GB or if the 32GB "number" is going to be overstated. I can see a lot of the textures being put into VRAM.
  8. I'm ecstatic to have won the InWin case. Congrats to all the winners! Thank you for the giveaway!
  9. My last purchase is lame but here it goes... DELL/Intel I350-T4 PCI-Express PCI-E Four RJ45 Gigabit Ports Server Adapter NIC (can't upload photos yet unfortunately) I'm going to attempt to make my own high powered pfSense firewall out of some older PC parts. This is pretty much all I needed. Not sure how it's going to go but I will let you guys know... lol
  10. I think most my WU's came from my 3900x. Probably half as much from my 1080 Ti.
  11. That makes sense the way you're using the chip then. Yeah, as far as I'm concerned, PBO is still kind of broken anyhow. I actually got lower scores with PBO enabled, lol.
  12. If you're thinking of lowering vcore, or even figuring out how it works... I would take a look at this review: https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/3...ffset-override You can actually lower vCore all you want, even go as low as 1v probably. Nothing will crash, however you will actually sacrifice major performance. These new chips work very differently than 1000 and 2000 series Ryzen chips. You will literally have to run something line Cinebench for each voltage increment until you know you haven't lost performance. I've had my 3900x since last August and read/watched tons of videos regardi
  13. 100% True, other than the fact everyone's either working from home, or not working right now. lol
  14. ? That's actually another question I had. Probably a simple answer. Is there a correlation between points and WU's? I noticed I have more WU's (22) than people with more points than me.
