Whats your pc?

I've heard conversation coming out of animal pens that is more intelligent than what is going on in here.

Refinished my new room, quite happy with the work space now!

Got a new case ordered as well. Now time to do some research on water cooling and supplies needed for a custom loop...

Turns out it is a ti lol, after looking at the specs the ti has lower clocks speeds but has a more effective power delivery via 2x6 pin connectors instead of the single, is the ti better or what? The clock speed thing has me confused as hell lol

TI is definitely better. You can always overclock it a bit too if you're worried about the clock speeds.

Looking to water-cool my CPU and GPU through a custom loop. What are some good cases and good places to buy water cooling components?

I would recommend doing lots of reading on water cooling at overclock.net and then decide on components you want. In my opinion that is the only way for you to know if watercooling is right for you or not.

What's everyone's Opinon on the new AMD Ryzen CPU? Would it be good for MXS?
Looking to upgrade but to go to Intel I would have to change my motherboard as well :S

You would need a new motherboard for either one. Know one will know how Ryzen is until reviewers/public receive them and test them.

Yes I believe the NDA lifted today for reviews. Still early to really know yet.

The i7-7700k would still be the best for MXS since it's mostly single threaded. Probably most other games too. If you do a lot of heavily threaded stuff in addition to gaming the Ryzen is probably a better choice. A little disappointing that it didn't come closer to the fastest 4 core Intel CPUs in gaming benchmarks though. It's just far enough behind in single thread performance to make it a tough choice.

I honestly thought that ryzen would do alot better, installed the new card today probably the best $50 I've ever spent!

I have really only seen 1800X reviews still but a $500 CPU for games shouldn't be your market. $/performance on thread intensive its good enough to warrant it but once again AMD relies on core count to make it a value as it doubles a 7700k and ~equal to a 6900k. If they could figure out single core performance Intel would be in massive trouble but for now they are only a little bit in trouble.

ANADTech review was the one I looked at and its CPU specific task I think its a no brainer for a multimedia person. The few YT reviews I watched it seems 4k games worked better but I would also think some level of BIOS/game optimization is still needed but without the god-like 7700k single core performance until games start using more than the standard 4 cores there isn't much ground to make up here.

Encoding Benchmarks:

http://images.anandtech.com/graphs/graph11170/85887.png

Rendering: Notice the difference in 880 and 881. The 7700k wins about everything single core but what is surprising is that even the i3 and i5 beat all the heavy contenders and even more surprising is the first one of the big contenders is the 1800x over the 6900k. Multicore though is the coolest thing ever with both 18/1700x beating the 6900k and the 1700 really close. If things were properly optimized CPU wise that is how most things should perform so if Ryzen can get enough of the gaming market (remember AMD also have consoles) on 4+ then they might optimze better causing some real disruption to Intel.

Web based rendering. Posting just for a lol that the 7700k can do that to them. Once again the i3 and i5 options are towards the top so thats why I say the things in the price points for "gamers" shouldn't be 1800x range, at most a 1700.

While all this is fun its my 780's struggling not my 4770k so if we could hurry up with Volta/Vega that'd be great...

There's no doubt it's an amazing value if you spend a lot of time waiting for stuff to render. I'm actually thinking of buying one for myself, since I do spend a fair amount of time waiting for stuff like compilers and raytracers.

It's also kind of weird that it's extremely competitive against the Intel chips in non gaming tests but consistently behind a bit for games. I wonder if the quad channel memory helps Intel there. It might help when setting up GPU draw calls since that should involve filling out a DMA buffer in non-cache memory. (There's a drawcall benchmark here and Ryzen doesn't do well on it.) Could be that Ryzen does better when running out of its cache but falls behind on writes to RAM.
