  1. Past hour
  2. Sounds like I should be looking for an Intel chip like my current machine
  3. Today

    Chris, Dave, Me, Mark (Keyholder) and Welsper. Happened to have 5 of us online on Weds evening randomly and figured we might as well see if we could get a quick key done while a viable group was online.

    Who was in this run? We had Loz and Khatum so not really that viable for a 9 just in terms of item level, we just didn't have a lower key to run so we tried that. Second boss on Grievous needs perfect execution and enough DPS to limit the number of tantrums you get.

    Sorry I saw your underrot and presumed it was a clear. I'll be around a bit earlier on monday but also tomorrow night.

    There was a Motherlode 9 key which got stomped on Wednesday and turned to an 11.

    Ill be around if ppl want to do something tomorrow, atal9 should be quite doable

    Any chance we can get one in before/after the planned runs on Monday? Would be a shame to let the Atal9 go to waste/not get a chest this week at all.

    Not as far as I'm aware, unless any happened today/yesterday? Thursday there was an attempt to do a 9 that failed miserably, had to abandon the key, so no one got anything completed.

    I'll be on tomorrow night and I think we're running on monday as well. I think we've got a few 9's done this week already?

    I'm busy tomorrow, here Mon/Tues.

    I'm running on Monday atm but can be on late tomorrow.

    We're out Tuesday and have some cooking plans tomorrow evening so need to get M+ done on Monday. If that's impossible we can make tomorrow work but need to know in advance. Or earlier tomorrow is fine if people are around. I have an Atal 9 key ready for a sexy group full of top DPS willing to listen to me whine about Grievous.
  16. I have a Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 GHz running at 3.7 GHz on a potato motherboard. You get more cores/threads than Intel, but with a penalty of lower per-core performance. 2nd gen Ryzen have improved per-core performance and overclock well, especially with a X450 motherboard. If you intend to exclusively use the computer for playing games, particularly games like WoW which still demand high single core performance, Intel is probably better. DX12 Vulkan could change things, though, so always check benchmarks. If you use the computer for other things, the extra cores are nice. I use mine as a workstation, and at the time I built it, it was either a 6 core/12 thread Ryzen or a 4 core/4 thread Intel. Being able to do things like "make -j12" is great. I realise now that this may be irrelevant if you only do web browsing on the computer. 😂 Ryzen architecture really benefits from fast RAM, so if you choose to go for it, get 3200 MHz RAM at least.

  18. Re the CPU, I have no idea on relative performance either. The 2700X is recommended to play Division 2 at 4k res which I won't be doing. The next meaningful drop in price in that build is a Ryzen 5 2600X but I'd need to look at some benchmarking to compare.
  19. But what if I want to do a track day 😀
  20. And yeah definitely replace Adata with Samsung. Gaz mostly covered SSD stuff but just to add, while M.2 is certainly faster it depends what the price difference is as to whether it's worth it. Having a faster SSD is a bit like having a faster Ferrari. In every day usage it may not really matter.
  21. Corsair RM is a good model, I would pay the difference for that. 1000W is crazy talk but will run super efficient and last forever drip feeding like 450W to that machine so if they want to give you that then sure.

    I mean, I'm biased but we could always use another druid Agree with Gaz though, shady priest is very different
  23. Other options: Corsair TX750M 750W 80+ Gold Semi-modular (£32) Corsair RM1000X 1000W 80+ Gold Modular (£43) There are two in between but if you pick either of those they give you a free upgrade to the 1000W one
  24. Adata by default but I was going to sub in a Samsung Evo 860
  25. The CPU looks like overkill in that build, though I'm not totally up to date on high-end AMD chips because generally Intels are better value for the same performance. The case seems a bit expensive as well. It's generally not a good idea to take a pre-built machine, spec up the same thing, and then compare the cost. The reason pre-built machines are usually a bad choice is not because they are bad value for what you get, it's because what you get is not what you actually want. But I accept that for some people this compromise is worth it considering the time investment, warranty, etc. The only really critical issue I see is that a Corsair CX is a garbage tier PSU. Which is a classic trick with pre-built machines. Any option to change that?
  26. Do you know what brand the SSD that they're going to use is? Samsung is ideal, some others are okay, some are bad.

    Check the benchmarks - same size drive, £25 more, the M.2 is nearly 150% faster: https://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Samsung-970-Evo-Plus-NVMe-PCIe-M2-250GB-vs-Samsung-860-Evo-250GB/m711305vs3949
  28. So is there any value in moving the SSD in that build to the M.2 slot? It also lists PCIe separately on the configuration page (ie it gives me 4 possible places to select an SSD).

    They're the result of someone going "why the fuck are we designing laptops around 2.5" SSDs which are 70% empty space by volume because they were designed to fit in the slots that platter HDDs were taking up in laptops...?"
