I haven't been putting much time into playing DOOM.

Yeah you should enjoy your new system. I am doing really fine myself. I put that 8-core in there and saw how high it would go then decided right away on 3.9GHz across the board with HT and I have not touched it since. The CPU and video card are very stable and I also do not check temps any longer. My RAM is working solid again with Haswell-E at CL12 and 1.2V. I have also been running my STRIX 1080 in Gaming mode (default) so it is not OC'd. Still getting use to my monitor and running it at 100Hz always. Extremely nice system I have and I couldn't have it any better.

BTW, the APEX should be appearing any day now.

Also, there is a new Intel NVMe driver if you still need it.

Re: DooM 2016

Well guys, I started DooM over this weekend one more time. Now I am on Nightmare, 2nd to the hardest difficulty. The hardest difficulty sets you back to the beginning of the game if you die and keeps a record of how far you made it lol. Can't ever play that one to the end really. I am dying a whole lot but I am still getting all the rewards, secrets, and challenges finished. I have not reached any of the bosses yet.




I feel like I am still burning in my system hardware and settings. I think it is the new monitor lol keeping me going. It still amazes me after having my Yamakasi monitor for so many years.

Re: DooM 2016

Played some DooM tonight and room stayed a lot cooler because I ran my monitor at 60Hz instead of 100Hz and I turned my video card down to Silent Mode which is the slowest (1810MHz) but still a good bit over reference boost clock.

Re: DooM 2016

Well guys I was stuck in a mission for a week. I got past the first part finally, I breezed through the second part but now stuck on the third part and then there will be the first Boss fight to end it. It gets very tough on Nightmare as you go along. I came within a hair of deleting the whole campaign but got through it tonight. Demons are taking twice as long to kill. I had to chainsaw some big ones to get my BFG back up with the proper Rune. I know I will need the BFG for the boss fight coming up.

BTW, I ran Hardware Monitor after the game and none of my hardware was above 41C. Not the CPU/RAM/SSD's etc. Even my GPU was fairly cool but my whole system warms the room for sure. I will run some more tests later. Also, I noticed some low frame rates so I cranked my monitor up to 100Hz.

Re: DooM 2016

Well I am all the way to the end of Titan's Realm battling the two bosses. Going to take a while.

I discovered something of a cheat a few missions back. I don't know if it got upgraded because I don't remember it before but in Lazarus Labs there is a rune called 'The Rich Get Richer'. I believe if you complete the challenge it will give you infinite ammo when you have 75pts of armor or more. I can have 150pts total armor and I have another Rune enabled that makes demons drop more armor in Glory Kills. So, if you have 75pts or more of armor you get infinite ammo. Now, grab the turret gun and never take your finger off the trigger. Everything that comes at you gets immobilized and dies from the Gattling gun. I killed like 4 of everything in one of Titan's Realm maps.
