Dear lord !

I hadn't had any time to game on my new rig before I had to leave. Been sorting out mine (and my mother's) wills to make sure my ex can't touch a bloody thing.

Any way, got back earlier. After sorting out the microwave and so on I decided to do some gaming. Figured for a laugh I would load up Just Cause 3. Now note, on two rigs (OC 5820k and Titan XM and 8 core Ivy & Fury X) this game stuttered like a pig. On both rigs.

Just loaded it up and I've never seen anything like it. Just smooth. No FPS dips no matter how many explosions, no stutter when driving (which would always happen).

The ex was dragging down your FPS, totally.

hahaha yeah FPS were OK if I was reasonable with the settings (so medium for most of it) but yeah, that stutter used to drive me crazy.

I think that may have been more to do with the GPU side rather than CPU, I played JC3 on a 5930K, Basically a 5820K but with more lanes, And 1 x 1080 Ti, No stutter, FPS dips etc....

Yeah it's deffo the GPU Hadn't really tried it out yet.

I benched Dirt Rally later in the evening ultra settings 1440p. Got a minimum of 75 FPS, average of 110 and a max of around 130 IIRC. GPU is nuts

<fps_race av_fps_ms="11.200257" max_fps_ms="7.993951" min_fps_ms="13.482543" av_fps="89.283661" max_fps="125.094589" min_fps="74.169983"/>

<fps_total av_fps_ms="11.200257" max_fps_ms="7.993951" min_fps_ms="13.482543" av_fps="89.283661" max_fps="125.094589" min_fps="74.169983"/>

That's what I got. Was very impressed, given it's a 70hz monitor

So my new TV arrived today seems very nice so far, took some real faffing about to get the soundbar connected as it still had the old TV's info but once it was reset all good to go and the new remote that comes with it controls everything including my IQ3 so right happy about that

Nothing like a good TV

Found out the other day that my mother's smart TV can control Amazon and Netflix with the standard remote. Awesome, saves hunting for the tiny Amazon remote which is falling apart and creaks when you use it lol.

Played some games last night. FO4 was amazingly smooth all cranked up and maxed out (even the weapons, which look amazing !). Had a load of teething issues though. When I was launching games in Steam nothing was happening. It would say "Game running" for about three seconds, then go back to "Play". Spent a few hours playing around with FO4. Deleted it, reintalled all 100gb of it still not working. Went to the folder and launched it without Steam, gave me a X3D error. Deleted the files it was moaning about, rebooted, downloaded DX web set up let it replace bingo !

Same sort of issue with Dirt Rally, it was a D3D compiler error. I think they were corrupted by my Oculus when I had those issues. But fixed, none the less, and a very happy alien

It's the 2017 9000 series curved and the blacks are much deeper on this one than the 2014/15 it replaces although it's not as good as the QLED it's pretty damn good nontheless

Having some real wins on the warranty front lately Ex!

Would love a 9 series - I prefer the flat over curved personally. Move into my new place in Jan so I'm thinking a 65" would make a lovely housewarming present to myself.

Yes I have although they replaced a 9000 with a 9000 but I really wasn't expecting a 2017 model I thought I'd be getting a refurb even the 2017 but it was a brand spanker in the box so real chuffed with it
