    XFX Speedster Zero WB Radeon RX 6900 XT

    I had a 2700x with my 6900xt and got >20,000 graphics score then upgraded to 5900x and maybe got 300 more graphics points. The CPU is not the problem.

    ASUS DARK HERO

    If you look at all the ryzen performance in gaming benchmarks the 5900x barely inches past the 5950x in performance which is what they were asking about. But as games become more thread happy the 5950x will stay relevant longer.

    ASUS DARK HERO

    It’s barely faster in games vs the 5950x but in the long term the 5950x will stay more relevant as more cores are utilized in games in the future.

    Virtual Super Resolution?

    Yeah they cap it to 5880x2880 which I understand why, it’s their max resolution quoted in the hardware specs for their graphics cards, but they need to focus on making their graphics options at least on par with nvidia since they are trying to re-take ground in the graphics territory.

    Virtual Super Resolution?

    Yeah when I upgraded from a 1080 to a 6900xt I was let down by VSR. I was looking forward to playing older games at 6880x2880 but hit a hard limit at 5120x2880. AMD….let us have 4x resolution like nvidia gives us

    AIO and 5950x temps

    Well apparently, according to Steve at Gamers Nexus, cold plate contact uniformity is actually atrocious for a lot of aio coolers out there. I bought his number 1 pick for aio cold plate uniformity, the ekwb aio’s. Nothing came close to having uniform mounting pressure on the different CPU’s he...

    Anyone still running an X99 Broadwell-E system?

    Bro I’m still running my 3960x on x79 and it’s still very relevant. Have had it overclocking for 8 years now at 4.9 ghz all core at 1.35V. This thing is a beast!

    AIO and 5950x temps

    That sounds pretty high for idle, my 5900x runs at 32C at idle and 68C full load with PBO and CO. How’s your cold plate mounting pressure? And did you use the paste the cooler came with?

    What's a good therman grease? Are thermal pads any good?

    That’s interesting, I still have my original spread of kryonaut on my 2700x built in 2018 and my recorded temps have not gone up since. That makes it 3 years old at this point…I wonder if maybe you don’t have enough mounting force on your cpu. Maybe the tighter the gap the more friction there is...

    What's a good therman grease? Are thermal pads any good?

    My favorite thing to see when tech reviewers use the carbon pads is that they aren’t wearing gloves and putting their body oils all over the pad before slapping it down on the cpu. Gotta love YouTube hahaha

    Just ordered a 5900x and Asus Dark Hero VIII x570s

    Unfortunately my 5900x’s memory controller can’t do 1900 mclock but will do 1866 all day with 3733 ram at 14-14-14-28-cr1 and tight secondary and tertiary timings

    Just ordered a 5900x and Asus Dark Hero VIII x570s

    I would go ahead and try them out, then determine if you need new ram

    RTX 3060 Ti broken capacitor

    RazorWind is an awesome and knowledgeable person for helping out so many people with their graphics card problems, I could be wrong but I doubt he would appreciate people advertising to go to him with their problems across the internet. I relate it to something I’ve had to deal with time and...

    EVGA to make a Dark line Motherboard for AMD

    Hahaha for a second there I was looking at the horizontal 24 pin power connector at top right of the board and going, …..why’d they put an IDE connector on a 2021 motherboard…..lol just goes to show how long I’ve been building computers.
