I just got an RTX 2080. AC maxxed out runs at 75 - 90 FPS on triples in full race conditions. ACC racing at night against AI on triples, everything on epic, runs at about 75 FPS. Epic! ACC looks awesome at night. The lights of following cars in your mirrors, glow from brake lights, sparks from diffusers hitting kerbs...

Jealous AF



Say's the guy with the 1080TI.... ::)
I would have gone for a 1080Ti but you can't get them any more (or they're rare as hen's teeth).
Was a guy selling 10 ex-mined ones for $750 each on a Facebook group yesterday... was almost tempted  ;D

Awesome! AC really does seem to depend on the track too. Last night I was between 70fps and 90fps as I was lapping but as I'm running at 60Hz anything more than 60fps is thrown away. That's part of why I decided to go for a used 1070 as a cheap GPU upgrade and spend the rest on new CPU  8)

Doh something came up I had to do just before the qually started and by the time I was done was too late. >:(

Not that I can drive the Short Tail any better  ::)
I'm sure you can.  I've softened the rear up a bit, just a general softening overall, and it works reasonably well.
Took a bit of work to get into the 21's and I know the track fairly well.    Except I have an ingrown hate for the last corner.  The rest is good.

I dont mind the last corner but I hate all the others  ;D

Wally, Mazda has 5 gears ... why did you say it only has 4?
Yeah, my mistake. I misremembered. How quickly we forget the car we ditched...

Poor little Mazda.

okay cool. well 1.275v didnt crash aida64 and the lower voltage meant average CPU temp of 66 degrees. running cinebench now the  will give Intel burn test a run
Seems good, I normally use asus realbench (uses h264 encode) and prime95 with avx disabled (v26.6 disabled by default, other versions need to manually) for about 2 to 4 hours

Intel burn test crapped itself, but a lot of people say not to use it. I ran Asus Realbench and that was all good. I may leave it as is for now and see how it handles gaming for a while.

I've been slowly decreasing the voltage to see how low I van get without aida64 stress test blue screening. 1.28v was all good but 1.27v blue screened after 10 mins. trying 1.275v now and if that's all good will try some further stress tests.

why is it as I'm changing voltages the CPU clock can be 1 or 2 mhz different? occasionally its showed 5000 right now its showing 4998

I've put the kraken on the water pump header and put the two fans on the rad into the CPU fan headers now instead of the fan controller and it is running cooler.

I set 1.3v on the core but I can see it fluctuating a bit so must be a setting somewhere doing that.  I followed a tutorial that should have made it consistent

I went straight for a 5Ghz overclock at 3v and ran the AIDA64 stress test for 15 mins and no drops in core speeds and averaged 72 degrees on the CPU which doesn't seem too bad. I did connect my radiator fans to the fan controller which I'm now thinking as wrong, and they should be on the CPU headers so will change that and try the test again and see if it runs any cooler

I think when you upgrade to 10, win 10 allocates a new key, so if the 8 key don't work try a key finder, none of this will be necessary if it doesn't ask you to reactivate but for me it did with a mobo upgrade

Annoying you're right I need to active windows. My Win8 key doesn't work so I downloaded the jelly bean key finder and it shows a Win10 Enterprise key, but my activation screen says Win10 Pro and the key doesn't work :\
Might need to go through the Microsoft support system phone or chat, I've had to do that with one system before, just say you replaced the old mobo which died or whatever. Or try adding a Microsoft account to your login, I haven't had any problems since doing that

yeah I think maybe when I put the win 8 key in it changed it to pro. i found an enterprise product I'd online which change it to say enterprise then when I went through the 'I changed hardware' wizard it said activation servers were down so will try again in a bit

just put the old psu back in and we're all up and running. brand new psu that lasted less than an hour... have put in a return claim on pccg
Lucky system components weren't taken out with it, what's the psu?

be quiet pure power 10. the old one is a pure power 8 and still going strong so just unlucky I guess
