Whats your system?

I have a 1080 arriving at 15.20pm :smile: will retest after installation


Thanks, I did that and edited my post. Now it shows that the overclock and ram upgrade actually increased my GPU performance!

new reading with my new 1080

That’s a strange combo. Doesn’t the CPU act as a bottleneck? How many fps to you get in DCS maxed out?

Busy experimenting. Swapped my SSD’s and put them in my son’s i5 rig with the 1080. Just doing some real world/gaming tests

Also no bragging, but those new Samsung SSD’s… are something else!

Here’s a bench on my old Toshiba SSD, bought it around 2013.


and in comparison, the 960 EVO.

As discussed earlier tonight … great numbers, especially on that lightning fast Samsung 960 Evo NVMe PCIe M.2 500GB!!!

I’m wondering what’s up with your 3200 RAM though since @Sargoth is scoring 13% higher with his 2400 RAM. You might want to check your RAM settings in your BIOS @Rhinosaurus.

My last test was based on my hardware right out of the box. I’ve had to do some tweaking and overclocking since. I’ve let the Asus bord decide what needed to be done and clocked the boost clock up to 4.1 Ghz. I’ve also brought out the XMP preset from the RAM, so that it runs with it’s advertised CL10 @ 2400Mhz

WOW! 126% on the RAM now! :+1:

Hmm, that’s interesting. I’m using the XMP preset for my RAM as well.

Oh, I see. 32gb vs 16gb. Seems like a big difference % wise but maybe that’s normal.

No. You got a CL16 RAM. I got a CL10.
Your CPU only supports up to 2400Mhz, so I don’t think you’re getting your money’s worth out of that RAM.
Lower cycles and higher hz is the way to go, but hz only as high as your CPU can manage (or memory controller).

The 7700k has a sweet spot for DDR4 RAM @ either 2133Mhz or 2400Mhz.

It defaults to 2400. You need to set it to run at 3200 which I’ve done (and verified).

Ya, but it’s still running at CL16. I agree with @Sargoth in that you should’ve bought some good CL10 2400 memory.

Thanks to this discussion I’ve got my 5 year old G.SKILL DDR3 2400 CL10 running at 91% in the benchmark.

Hey guys, a quick Q.

I’ve found that as soon as my PC is running more than just thwe O.S. the internal clock goes horribly awry.
It stops, jump back an hour, two, a whole day… it’s weird and I’ve never encountered this problem before.

Has anyone else?
Could it be the internal clock battery?!

I’ve even set it to run the clock with the Internet time server…
Goes without saying that without the Internet time server it still does the same thing.

In any case, thank you…

@komemiute’s computer has opened up a portal into the past…


LAWL! :smiley:
Lemme rush and buy some of those Yahoo stocks…

That’s an odd one. It sounds like the Motherboard BIOS is failing, which is not a good sign :frowning: Unless you’ve done anything specific in the BIOS you could try finding the reset button/jumper and try that, i.e. reset the CMOS battery.

Does it happen each time you reboot or happen while you are running Windows?
