bottleneck or hardware optimization limitations help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hi all, currently have a build which runs smooth as butter for me and what i do (gaming smile.gif)
i was just wondering recently if i can improve or find any bottlenecking in my system and to my very limited knowledge i cant think of any but i would love more expertized opinions on this

my current system is -

i5-3570k overclocked to 4.8Ghz

8GB corsair dominator platinum's (1866mhz) on XMP profile 1 **soon to be 16gb just to fill in the slots i guess i know its waste of money but i guess it a head thing or a ocd thing lol

g1 sniper 3 mobo

tri sli gtx 680 classified 4gb (lol only like 3-4% oc still)

Samsung 840 250gb ssd (non pro)

all displayed on a 144hz asus panel

any help would be greatly appreciated and any advice would be awesome and wont go un noticed smile.gif

What would you define as bottlenecking?
If you can maintain at least 120FPS, if not capping @ 144 (which I believe you can do, depends on which games you play) - why even bother?
I would see no point in any upgrades over this computer. Perhaps expand storage further with two hard drives in RAID0.

Besides that, I would probably chose the path of an overclockable 1440p display and eventually saving up for the [insert next GPU generation here] SLI/Crossfire solution. Or a multiple display 1080p solution.

Aaaand see if your temps would allow for a higher overclock on those classies.

oh cool thanks i didnt even think about more storage i guess u can never have too much of that, hey so question what is raid 0 and how can i benefit from it and also can raid be setup with an ssd with hdd?

RAID = Redundant Array of Independent Disks - that is pretty much self-explanatory.

RAID0 is a non-redundant configuration where the controller (in this case it will be most likely your motherboard which has one) takes control of two (or more) disks and stripes them in blocks. Figuratively, something like this:

Disk 1 | Disk 2 | Disk 3
block1 | block2 | block3

block4 | block5 | block6

And takes management over them. That way, a file can be spread across multiple drives and read from all of them simultaneously, thus improving performance to an almost perfect scaling (not considering seek times, of course).
Storage, naturally, adds up.

To answer your next question - for the BIOS, a.k.a. FakeRAID, you would need two or more of the same SSD/HDD. wink.gif

If I were you I would get either 2 drives for RAID 0 or if you have any important information that you don't want to risk losing, it's generally a good idea to do a RAID10 configuration. Since RAID1 is mirrored data (meaning you get the performance and volume of a single disk and everything you write to it is mirrored to the others), the combination of RAID1+0 would consist of four, six, eight.. [(1+n)*2] drives which are striped and then mirrored. In that case if one drive fails, you can simply replace it and the controller will rebuild the data onto it again.
