  1. I have to say I am very impressed with the improvement in clarity and colours with the 8K+. The 8KX will be better again.
  2. The Artisan will have different screens to better match the lower FoV. The screens are 1700x1440. MRTV Tried it out at CES and reported similar clarity as the 5K+ and Index.
  3. Indeed, hence the reason you can get Pimax 5K+ for ~$500 - $600 (some with Vive DAS included) but as more flood in they could drop further.
  4. You could look for a used Pimax 5K+ with Vive DAS on eBay for that price and you can have similar clarity with the wider FoV. As someone who used a Pimax 5K+ in Il-2 I can say the clarity is very good and combined with the 150 FOV (on normal) it was the best HMD I tried. I did try the Index briefly at a work colleagues but not in Il-2. I found it to be on par (win some loose some vs my 5K+). I am now waiting on my 8KX to be delivered around April or hopefully earlier but realistically later
  5. Thanks for the update Shady, enjoy and good luck. If you have the time could you please run the Remagen benchmark so we get a reference on what your 2600 gets? You can then compare to the 9700K to see how much it has improved. My 2700X with 2060 Super got the following, which is ~ 25% less than a 5GHz i7 (but remember this is removing the GPU from the equation). So expect a decent improvement in your new PC. Motherboard: Asus Crosshair VI Hero CPU: 2700X CPU Freq: 4.3GHz L3 Cache: 2x8MB Cores: 8 HT: On RAM Type: DDR4 RAM Size: 16GB NB Freq: 1700 RAM Freq: 3400 RAM Latency: 16 GPU: 1060S STMark: 2254 Frames: 22277 - Time: 180000ms - Avg: 112.650 - Min: 75 - Max: 191
  6. For info on anyone wondering why the NB frequency on AMD Ryzen always looks low. RAM controllers for AMD Ryzen are integrated on the CPU die and typically run half the RAM speed.
  7. I have done this test on a Ryzen 2700X with the stock wraith Prism cooler. Motherboard: Asus Crosshair VI Hero CPU: 2700X CPU Freq: 4.3GHz L3 Cache: 2x8MB Cores: 8 HT: On RAM Type: DDR4 RAM Size: 16GB NB Freq: 1700 RAM Freq: 3400 RAM Latency: 16 GPU: 1060S STMark: 2254 Frames: 22277 - Time: 180000ms - Avg: 112.650 - Min: 75 - Max: 191
  8. The i7 6700K is not going to improve much with faster RAM but if you are successful in overclocking it will help. A mid range AIO water cooler could help get you to 4.7 - 4.8GHz and that with the faster RAM should help with stutters. My last Intel before going Ryzen was a 6700K with a Corsair H110 I bought used and it reached 4.8GHz at ~75c at 1.35v when gaming.
  9. 2400 DDR4 should overlock to 2666 - 2800, or even 3000 at 1.35v - 1.4v. DDR4 is rated to run at 1.35v - 1.4v. If you RAM does not have heat-sinks then try reaching for 2666 at 1.3v to see how hot it gets. HWINFO (google it) will tell you your RAM temperature as long as your motherboard has the slots monitored. https://www.howtogeek.com/439140/how-to-overclock-your-computers-ram/
  10. You won't see an improvement by adding extra RAM. You need to overclock your CPU and your RAM to remove the stutters. What is your CPU cooling?
  11. You don't need fancy cooling fans for RAM. What type of RAM do you have and I can check how easy it will be to overclock. In some cases all you do is change the RAM multiplier from 30 to 32, up the voltage by 0.2 and test.
  12. Try overclocking the RAM a touch, 3200 may be possible.
  13. Did you see any improvement after fixing the RAM speed?
  14. I would go with 32GB 3200 and overclock it, but getting the DDR 4000 at 2x8GB means you can still upgrade in the future. Have a look here for some DDR comparison tests on a 9900K.
