  1. Was able to snag a RX 6800 before prices went sky high and availability plummeted. Very happy with the combo. Wanted to keep it all AMD.
  2. Nice rig AuburnAlumni! I have a 5900x/RX6800 combo and I'm also impressed. Just ordered the Oculus Quest2 recently and enjoy it. Varibraun, finding the 5900x is tough but I found an Ebay seller sometime ago and though I paid a premium, it pales in comparison to trying to find one now.
  3. Owning a 5900x/RX6800 combo I can tell you the 5900x IS fast. Sadly the 5900x is VERY hard to get now.
  4. Jaws2002: I agree with you. I was finally able to snag a RX 6800 to pair with my 5900x. No need to Overclock either one. Just enabled SAM in the BIOS and let it go. Have ram on XMP setting for DDR4-3600.
  5. Was on Omaha Beach on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of WW I, November 11, 2018. Was extremely moved by it. Pearl Harbor is amazing but Normandy with the WWIi beaches is hallowed ground. Even have a German cemetery there. The US cemetery is something I shall never forget. Looking forward to this release.
  6. If I have time I'll try but right now having fun using it.
  7. Chiliwili69, reran the test and fixed some of the incorrect settings for the 1920x1080 run and stock 5900x/RX6800 with ram at 3600. 2021-01-23 13:55:12 - Il-2 Frames: 6124 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 102.067 - Min: 85 - Max: 144
  8. This is the 1920x1080 score for my 5900x/RX6800 rig. 2021-01-22 21:41:13 - Il-2Frames: 5956 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 99.267 - Min: 62 - Max: 137.

  9. 2021-01-22 21:41:13 - Il-2 Frames: 5956 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 99.267 - Min: 62 - Max: 137 This is the 1920x1080 score on Fraps for a 5900x with a RX6800 both stock on a MSI X570 Unify mb with 32G of DDR4-3600 ram/ I sure hope I did all the settings the correct way. Don't have a 4k monitor on this rig (BenQ3501R) so I'll skip 4k.
  10. Also have a RX 6800 coupled with a 5900x. Extremely fast!
  11. My 5900x, which I run stock, is custom water cooled with an Optimus wb and plenty of rad capacity. Your 5600x setup should be fine. What thermal paste did you use?
  12. FINALLY, I snagged a 5900x to replace my 3900x. Gosh it IS fast. Now I have to wait for the 6800XT gpus to become available
  13. I have a 5900x on Pre-Order from B&H Video to replace my 3900x. I have a MSI X570 Unify with 2x16G DDR4-3600 Gskill. I suspect I will have to wait quite awhile for the 5900x.
  14. Impressive showing by Nvidia yesterday, especially the pricing of the 3070 and 3080. Most knew the 3090 would be salty but WOW it sounds like a Monster. I'm happy to wait until the AMD Big Navi is released. All of the Horsepower just announced is wasted if you don't have the high end monitor to utilize it.
  15. Chiliwili69: If you have waited this long to upgrade I would wait for the CometLake to be released since you have to buy a new MB even for the 9900k/ks. The new CometLake MB will be a bit more expensive but then you are set. BTW. my 9900k has been OC to 5GHZ almost from the start on my Asrock Z390 Taichi and has been rock solid. The Kraken X72 AIO has been excellent.
  16. Love the picture Jaws2002!😎 I must say though that my 3900x really closed the gap even in games to the 9900k versus what my 2700x could do.
  17. Thank you all for the wonderful work and virtual flybys. Happy Easter. Was the first time I have seen my 3 year old granddaughter in person ( was from a distance but at least I saw her) since March 17.
  18. Thank you for all the hard work during these trying time. Stay safe everyone!
  19. Just got a 3900x to replace my 2700x. I also used a new Optimus WB and custom water cooled it with a 360 mm + 240mm radiators. Also just updated the MB to the MSI X570 Unify and threw in a Sabrent Rocket Nvme 4 1TB ssd for the boot drive. Very fast!
  20. I use a Kraken X72 AIO to cool my 9900k clocked at 5Ghz.
  21. VERY nice setup! With that monitor the GTX 2070 Super will be great. My 9900k is a BEAST.
