  2. Boil replied to the thread what happened to the 3850X.

    Way to read the thread title & then blindly comment... The hypothetical 3850X is now known as the Ryzen 9 3950X... You know, exactly what we have been discussing in the last two pages...

    No, as I said earlier, I kept both full-length plates that were on the pcb, front & back. Both plates have thermal tape between them & RAM / VRMs. Oh, and since that pic was shot, the kid has added a 500GB Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD to the M.2...

    Corsair Carbide Series Clear 400C, too big for my tastes, but my son likes it... That is just from the angle of the pic, the two metal plates that sandwich the pcb keep the whole package pretty stiff...

  5. Boil liked Dan_D's post in the thread what happened to the 3850X.

    Threadripper still has way more memory bandwidth and more PCIe lanes. That's of value to people who need it for workstation applications.

    I cannot recall where, but one of the YouTube videos I have viewed in the last few days mentioned the B550 boards should follow X570 by a few months...?

  7. Boil replied to the thread wooooo those are spendy mobos.

    You mean the motherboard with the factory monoblock covering the CPU, Chipset & VRMs, which is limited to 1000 units...? Yeah, there is a reason it is so expensive...

    Morpheus II on an EVGA GTX 1070... It doesn't stick out very far at all past the PCB & I managed to retain both the stock top & back plates... It does however turn your GPU into a 4-slot monster...! [ATTACH] Computer of #1 Son...

  14. Boil liked tangoseal's post in the thread The Worlds Best of Best 16 core gaming CPU..

    If that is true then we are going to see like a 30% uptick in gaming performance across the board. 1) the new IPC gains and 2) the OS optimizations.... wow this is a great time to build a new AMD system if your into doing that right now.

    AMD also elected to NOT implement any patches on the Intel platform to deal with any of the numerous security issues... Basically they were giving Intel every advantage they could...?

  17. Boil liked tangoseal's post in the thread 3200 or 3733 for upcoming Zen 2?.

    IdiotInCharge I'm going to build a 100% gaming rig with a 12 core that can do productivity on the side. So I'm all about extracting every ounce of performance.

    G.Skill has their Trident Z Neo RAM coming out, which is 'designed for Zen 2', kind of like the Flare X series of memory...? That video covers the current AM4 motherboards, but the best choice for the R3K CPUs, in regards to memory performance,...

  19. Boil replied to the thread Navi discussion thread.

    Look, all this speculation on the future of gaming & streaming services for the same is cool, but not really relevant to the topic, which is Navi GPUs for local usage... Now, what I want to hear more of is Navi 20, aka 'Big Navi'; what will it...
