HZD on PC made my 3080 worth it.

Other than that I have played... WoW and Hades, lol.

I played a lot of missed games when I first got the 3080. The Tomb Raider games, HZD, the latest Gears games... but now all I play is FFXIV. Got Watchdogs Legion and Assassic Creed Valhalla to finish but feeling lazy.

ouch, 25% performance hit from virtualization security in Windows 11. Fortunately can turn it off, but otoh it is kinda nice to have it on for normal shit. Hopefully they figure out a way to have "trusted" gaming apps that can disable the feature temporarily just for that game.

but what the fuck do I care, my PC is now almost 5 years old and i'm in no rush to upgrade thanks to all the shortages. still kinda weird to think about how there is a new version of windows coming

Thought my 3080 went into the shitter just now. Was playing FFXIV and the screen lost connection. Could hear the game still but rebooted the computer, luckily the screen went on again but it warned me the 5900x was overheating. Checked temps and it was sitting at 78C at idle and 90C+ in games.

Removed the cpu and reapplied Grizzly Thermonaut paste and now it's at 67C while gaming. Can the paste lose all effectiveness all of a sudden? Supposed to be a good brand also, I did apply it with the smearing it out technique last time but it was like 6 months ago. This time I just made a big lump and squished the cpu down.

I’d go with the asus. More ram, more storage. More reasonable gfx card. And cheaper. The HP you’re going to spend more then have to upgrade those other aspects too, just for the 3090. Nothx.

Had them build me a system. Came up to 2100 minus the video card (already have a RX 6800). Can pick up today. Microcenter offers NO discounts. Jeez.

Just go in and see what gpus they have in the back and then buy parts if they have one in - also the powerspec with 3080 is usually with good specs but shit case and comes out cheaper than the 5800x with 3080 system from Asus

I did exactly that! I just got back. The only cards they have in stock the 6900 XT for above 1600 bucks. That's too much for my blood.

I bought my daughter a Powerspec a couple years back. The PS, MB and mem are all...generic crap. Granted it was a sub 1k system. Rather spend the extra few hundred and get exactly what I want and have peace of mind.

Yeah friend asked me to build him a pc this week - i went in for a prebuilt but they had a 6800 for $850 in stock so i grabbed that and an o11 mini black and just did a full build there. Friend went yesterday and they had a 3090 as late as 5pm. So it all depends on luck really in the end.

I really think Windows fucked with something. I had the exact same thing happen to my 5900x temps after a motherboard/windows update. I undervolted a bit and everything has been fine since. Really fucking strange and couldn't figure out why my CPU was idling at 70-75C, with 1-2% CPU use. Weird thing is that it didn't increase in games much, just stayed at a constant 70-75C.

After messing with a few undervolt curves, I'm able to consistently idle at 39-41C, around 48ish when browsing, and 50-70C gaming, depending on the game. The nice thing about the undervolt is the CPU taking advantage of PBO more consistently. Actually had one of my cores peg just a tad over 5000mhz at one point.

Not temp related but a few days ago after restarting my PC my computer said I had installed a new CPU and gave my a prompt about resetting TPM, so I'm prone to believe Windows did something fucky

Yeah I really didnt like paying that price but it was either continue to wait and wait and wait or pay some mutoid scalper.
