Hey gust upgraded to the i7 10700k O/C to 4.8ghz

GTX 1070ti stock

16GB corsair lpx ram at 2400mhz.

 

For the first time even i o/c the ram to 3000mhz at stock voltage (1.200) and it seems to be working well.

 

im looking to O/C the 1070ti, ive heard it can run well close to 1080 performance, anyone ever done this before ?

Im hoping the 10700k is good enough for fs2020 as we are super close to release now.

 

thanks

My advice would be to leave the GPU at stock clock speeds, and possibly return the RAM to its XMP settings... why run on the ragged edge?  I am quite sure that you would not be able to tell the difference in your sim performance..

Considering the minumum, recommended and ideal specs have been released months ago there is no need to hope or wonder.

Thought why not, maybe get extra performance or so initially.

Yup, or instability and problems which can be difficult to diagnose.. 😉

couldn't agree more with the problems arsing however ,  i did run memtest 64 for around 20 loops and found no errors on memory so fingers crossed it looked stable.

 

when i first purchased this memory i went in blind not knowing anything about speeds and messed up and paid a lot more for 2400 than i should have, my silly mistake.

The 2400 speed comes with lower CAS latency settings which you lose when you go to the 3000 speed.

That closes the performance gap...

Either way, if the memtests run successfully,  you should be OK. 😉

I've tried overclocking Nvidia cards, did it years ago, but it did not work well.  The minimal performance boost was not worth the extra heat and instability induced by the overclock.

The newer Nvidia cards hit power limit pretty quickly, and there is no way around it without soldering shunt resistors to the board or running the risk of bricking your card installing custom BIOS.

I joined your new build parade, though about a month ago:

i7 10700k, OC to 5.0Ghz all cores, 4.7Ghz cache, under a noctua NH-D15S and running Win10 Pro

Asus Maximus Hero XII, g.skill 2x16GB 3600 @ 15-15-15-32 2T, Thermaltake Tough Power GF1 850W PSU, evga gtx 1070 SC (4 years old and still going strong)

3 NVMe drives: 2x 1T, 1x 500GB (in a PCIe x4 slot, used exclusively for my FSX-SE install and all its addons)

FSX-SE runs and looks like a dream on it, using a 2560x1440 60hz IPS monitor.  Awaiting the nvidia 3000 release for a gcard upgrade.

OK FS2020, bring it ON! 😆

Avoiding opening a new thread I‘ll post my question within this one. 
 

I‘m also thinking about the i7-10700k or as an alternative a 3800x/xt or 3900x/xt from AMD. Haven‘t seen any YouTube videos from testers yet where I can extract any information which Type of CPU might be better for MS2020. 
 

I think both are quite good for the simulator but maybe there is a difference between them. 
 

I know the NDA for private alpha testers is still active but maybe someone can provide information immediately after it is allowed. 
 

thanks in advance

My guess is that when the NDA is lifted, there will be an almost immediate flood of reviews/posts discussing the merits of this platform or that for FS2020.

I was beginning to have issues with my mobo and that was why I didn't wait.  Went with Intel because speed is always king for my needs (of which FS2020 is not the only one).
