    Broke AM4 Socket Cover

    Already have the same one in my system, this is broken from December, thought I can fix it for a friend - I know it will work temporarily if I hold the CPU manually, need to jerry-rig some shit to make it stick.

    Broke AM4 Socket Cover

    I think this was wobbly when it was working but actually snapped when I decided to take the socket apart, not from the pressure itself. It was so loose that sneezing would turn the PC off due to the CPU losing contact. Will try, hoping for the best. If it is fixed it goes in my friend's ryzen...

    Broke AM4 Socket Cover

    I mounted the cooler way too tight on my MSI x370 Carbon motherboard and it resulted in the CPU losing contact with the pins in its default mounted state. To resolve this, I opened up the mounting mechanism and realized a piece of the plastic was broken. I am attaching pictures of how the...

    Vega Rumors

    I'd like to know how much difference does freesync make at 40 - 45 fps range on a 60 hz display.

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    Can't wait for Coffee lake to happen, all these high core ryzens make me so tempted to get a high core system ( i don't need it at all ) Can't really afford to change mobo/ram/cpu but a 450$ CAD 6 -core isn't too bad if it fits in my z170

    Vega Rumors

    In the same way, a Vega is better than the 1080ti.

    AMD has really put me in it with Vega..

    I think on a high refresh rate monitor, it might not even matter and you could grab a 1080 and call it a day. You would have to look deep into freesync to know that, I really don't have much knowledge of the subject

    Vega Rumors

    Cageymaru is really a big fan of AMD as he was convinced that Bulldozer was a good chip for the price 2 years ago.

    Vega prices released?!? Looks very enticing for real!

    Let's say that I have 7700k & 16GB DDR4 @ 3200 Mhz and all I do is play Dota & Overwatch >> I see a slick deal on a used 2600K + Mobo + Ram Combo for 1/3 the price I'd be able to sell my current hardware for. Wouldn't it be so smart for me to get that kit and save on a month's grocery? There...

    Your PSU could easily power a Vega 56, which should perform very similar to a Vega Nano (just guessing)

    Nano is 64 i think, but lower clocks and tdp limited. A 56 might as well outperform it when it has thermal headroom (290 oc vs 290x) - which could also be an option for you to buy with freesync @ 399

    Vega prices released?!? Looks very enticing for real!

    my 1080 does 4k @ 40fps on the worst titles, which is ok for me, I'd prefer it over 1440p @ 80fps any day... I will gladly wait and look at your review if freesync can really make those 40s seem like non-freesync 60s?

    Wait 2 weeks for benchmarks, they are also going to launch a Nano version of it which will fit in your power envelope. I wouldnt wanna pay a big premium for it though..

    I'll have to find the source on this, but I can be wrong.

    Vega prices released?!? Looks very enticing for real!

    I have a 4k Monitor with with freesync + 1080, i would love to get a card with freesync but that would match it but would I trade it for a rx 580??? Hell naw Also freesynch on a high FPS game like overwatch or dota on 4k would probably make it unplayable with the insane input lag it can cause...
