that is all.
I picked up the MSI Armor model from amazon. $419.What did you pay, if you don't mind me asking?
Normally it just mean that the card is slightly overclocked seen against the standard clock rate(s) infoed from nVidia.It says OC which I guess is overclocked. I just don’t understand how it’s different or what that means. Is it overclocked from the factory or overclockable at home?
They just max out the performance of these cards with there own cooling design. Yes, it's OCing. And yes the cooling design is often better and less noisy. But most of the time the performance gain you get, if any!!, is nothing compared to the extra price. And in most sim racegames it is often not even noticeable. I have an Asrock AMD RX580 OC, cheapest of it's kind and due to the airplane noise i custom cooled it myself. Cost me 215 Euro's incl. custom cooling and all sims run nice and smoothNormally it just mean that the card is slightly overclocked seen against the standard clock rate(s) infoed from nVidia.
I would look in threads deal with your specific card
The GPUCard from 3rd party vendors often come with this kind of "OC Software". Asrock provides software with 3 different Clockspeeds: Silent, Normal and Gamemode but the last mode is above the advertised clockspeed so when i set that i'm officially OC-ing it. I would suggest you set/leave you're CPU and GPU in default mode and you're Ram on wat the XMP file says and just test you're system by gaming or maybe stresstest even... I do not recommend using any kind of OC Software. OC-ing is a choice you make and a sort of hobby for some people. But if you just want a good game PC with steady performance for you're heavy games for a couple of year's, OC is never a good idea. You already have a good and fast CPU and GPU so stability is wat you seek now i think, so you can run games at a constant higher FPS. The Ryzen 3900x cpu is already optimized by AMD themselfs and has little headroom for OC-ing it.
