    Intel Readies Atom "Grand Ridge" 24-core Processor, Features PCIe 4.0 and DDR5

    My NAS also runs VMs - but very basic, not high performance required ones. I would love double the IPC on my NAS while still 35w or so. Denverton isn't the most amazing CPU out there, despite the initial rave reviews of it. Must admit 24 cores is a bit much, honestly I'd be fine with 8, I just...

    Intel Readies Atom "Grand Ridge" 24-core Processor, Features PCIe 4.0 and DDR5

    Then it sounds to me, like you don't own a NAS ........... cause this hardware sounds like fun to me. I have an Atom based NAS and it's been wonderful but the processor inside it was first designed in 2016, it'd be nice to see some updates to this tech. I'd especially like to see the AMD v3000...

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (12nm refresh edition) *** 2/25 back at $85 shipped

    I wonder if the $85 was just an anomaly?

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (12nm refresh edition) *** 2/25 back at $85 shipped

    Did some !@#ers just crank the price up $15 US in the last 36 hours?

    How to adjust fan speed, 3 pins, AsRock H370? Possible?

    I get the impression from the bios, only one port is capable of DC fan control, that port is also port 1, which is the only one strong enough to push the huge Sugo 08 fan. I don't understand why it's this difficult (or why gelid can claim their fan is "silent") In a tiny itx rig, it kinda...

    How to adjust fan speed, 3 pins, AsRock H370? Possible?

    How to adjust fan speed, 3 pins, AsRock H370? Possible?

    I didn't have any luck there, no noise change, isn't SpeedFan old?

    How to adjust fan speed, 3 pins, AsRock H370? Possible?

    I'm getting conflicting reports across the internet on this. The one consistent piece of data is "hey, it has to be voltage lowering in order to do this" I'm _very_ ok with that, I just want something. You're the first to imply it's becoming less common due to PWM. Can anyone else please...

    How to adjust fan speed, 3 pins, AsRock H370? Possible?

    Note: I'd prefer someone who has actually DONE this with a 3 pin? Not just read up, cause for me, AsRock software and bios was worthless.

    How to adjust fan speed, 3 pins, AsRock H370? Possible?

    I purchased 2x of these. https://www.newegg.com/global/co-en/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835426032 "GELID Solutions Silent5 FN-SX05-40 50mm Case Fan" I've plugged them in to an AsRock H370 board and I'll be damned if I can figure out how to slow them down. I don't mind them moving a low...

    The Radeon Technology Group (RTG) has received its first Zen 2 sample!

    I know it's only early but that's disappointing. Either they fix up the IPC at least 5 / 10% or they push that number a bit higher. Hopefully, very hopefully, this will be resolved in 6 months time. Also, to be honest, considering rumoured, potential launch dates, I'm surprised this wasn't at...

    Intel 10nm/7nm CPU/GPU Rumor Thread : Cannonlake, Icelake, Tigerlake, Sapphire Rapids, etc.

    I wonder when we'll see a 6,8 or 10 core Desktop (not workstation,...) processor that's smaller than "14nm+++" (no, 14nm+++++++ doesn't cut it) No, not mobile either. Next year, right?

    AMD launches Zen+ 12nm Ryzen and X470 motherboards

    AMD made a foolish decision with this naming convention (or perhaps the server guys did) The new "Epyc embedded" processor which looks great for your NAS, extremely high end router, mini servers and so on, is the "Epyc 3000" series. So you'll end up with Ryzen 3000 and Epyc 3000 in a year or...

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

    Does anyone with a Z370 have a regular 2.5 or 3.5" HDD in Windows 10 they want to SPIN THE DAMN THING DOWN? Mine is in there for backup purposes only, I literally write about 2TB a week on Sundays and then prefer it to spin down. I've even gone as far as to remove the drive letter and still...
