    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Not at all. I don't buy any parts in my systems for aesthetics. They stay under the desk out of the way and I don't even see them. In most cases I'm very much a function over form kind of person.

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Rumored release is september from the articles i've read. Though i'd guess limited supply at that time and only certain models. I'd also expect demand to continue to be crazy and as a result they'll be hard to get and prices will be stupid. I really hope i'm wrong.

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I haven't seen this one show up to purchase at all. I mean the price is still $440 but i've never seen it in stock. I've been refreshing all day every day at work and at home. Are you just saying the price is the same or that it's available for purchase and i'm just not seeing the buy button?

    I saw that go up yesterday and it's still there today.

    issue with new LGA1700 build

    Did you check the fan curve in the bios? It may be set to 0% at idle. My GPU fans don't spin at idle. Only under load.

    Upgrading from 8700K to 12600K worth it?

    IMO no. But it depends on what you need it for. I do have a 5820, 8700 and now a 12900. The 12900 is a worthy upgrade over my 5820. But not over the 8700. But again, depends on your wants/needs.

    Undervolt 12900k

    I use a voltage offset of -.11 and I get mid 90's temp in cinebench 23 without throttling. With all cores running I leave the clock multiplier at 49. If I increase that I will thermal throttle. So far this is the best i've been able to do. Changing core voltage doesn't seem to do anything on...

    Do you want 64GB of DDR5? Be prepared to spend two times more than DDR4 to go slower!

    Indeed. And it's not just that one game does or does not use a lot of ram but it's also all the other programs you may be running. I put 32gb on my computer I built 6 years ago. And i've made use of it. And 32gb on the system I just built. I even have 32gb in my NAS. Depending on what I have...

    i9 12900k temperature problem?

    stock it hits 100c and throttles. Undervolting will drop it down but it's still hotter than i'd like. But it's stable and not throttling. I can undervolt more and bring the temps way down but it's not stable. I don't overclock.

    i9 12900k temperature problem?

    alder lake just runs plain hot, even with a AIO. I can easily hit 100c in cinebench and thermal throttle. I spent all weekend downvolting and testing so I am now stable and no longer throttling though I still hit 93c in cinebench. My main use case is video encoding so it was important to me...

    Build a Plex NAS computer or buy a prebuilt NAS ?

    I tell them what they need to do and then I set the server to no transcoding. So then it's on them to set it up correctly if they want to watch something. I keep my 4k in a different folder and I don't share with anyone who doesn't have hardware that supports it. Though even a crappy 4k fire...

    Poll: Alder Lake owners: were you able to get a cooling solution for LGA 1700?

    I have the same cpu and cooler and I’m hitting 100c and throttling on cinebench. Perhaps it’s defective. I idle at 30c. I'm going to exchange it for a new one and see.

    My 12900K reaches 85°C during rendering at 22°C ambient temp.

    I have. Nothing new there. Hopefully it will show up soon. But i've read and watched videos about it and it seems voltages are too high by default on the board and some tweaking will bring them and the temps down. I'll play around with it after work.

    Poll: Alder Lake owners: were you able to get a cooling solution for LGA 1700?

    None of the above. I didn't already own a AIO and then one I ordered also didn't ship with the 1700 kit. But they did ship the kit to me for free with proof of purchase. I got the arctic cooling liquid freezer II 360. I'm in the US and the kit shipped from the east coast and took about 3 days...

    MPG Z690 EDGE WIFI DDR4 Review ?

    I have this board. Installing windows 11 crapped out when setting up the network so I had to bring up a cmd prompt to bypass it. Once windows installed I could install the drivers from the included USB stick. However the board has been fine. No issues with it so far.
