    Steam Turns 18 YO Today - Rolled Out: Sept. 12 2003

    It's like Half-Life, but with better graphics and a Xen you actually want to play.

    Steam Turns 18 YO Today - Rolled Out: Sept. 12 2003

    TBH, I have had Spectrum (once TWC) cable internet so long (late 90's) that has 0 data caps, I never thought that people buy internet that has data caps. Didn't know that was a thing outside of cell phones... lol. I Download WAY faster (500Mbps) than I would be able to install from optical...

    Well, it says "0", for some reason, i doubt that is correct...

    I don't remember how to even find that.... otherwise I'd check. I might be a 4 digit (or less?)

    I think I always used the in-game browser; but I had a Gamespy plugin on my Clan webpage so people could see the status on all 3 servers I had running. 2 were for TFC and one was for CS.

    Day #1 download and signup here. Was playing a lot of TFC and CS in those days (along with hosting several servers), so it was a must. Probably one of the oldest accounts here!

    This entire thread makes me grateful that I live within 20 minutes of a MicroCenter.

    Who ran Haswell-E for a long time or is still running it?

    Dude, they already have 10+ cores out now running at 5.0Ghz+... lol. Your time is easily now.

    Ryzen 9 5950x to Ryzen 9 5950xt ?

    Do you know what your power and voltage setting were for various things like vcore, SOC, PBO limits, etc? If auto, its possible the board could have caused damage. I'm pushing my 5950x pretty hard, but I have set everything manually, custom PBO and all voltage and power settings are within...

    Ryzen 9 5950x to Ryzen 9 5950xt ?

    At the very least, prices have already fallen some on these chips, and I'd expect another drop after Intel 12 series release. So even if the XT never comes, you will likely get a discount further later this year. Although in the grand scheme of things, as long as i expect these chips to be...

    Official EVGA Ampere Queue Thread

    Just got my notice for a 3090 FTW3 Ultra today... I have no need for it as I have one already I got at MicroCenter in December. Selling my que one to a buddy at work for exactly what I pay for it. At least I know it will be used for gaming!

    Need opinions on motherboard for a 5900x

    Yup, the chipset fan on my X570 Meg Ace only turns on when I boot the bios after a full power off. It is the only time I have ever seen it run. I imagine my case fans push enough air past the chipset to keep it cool and within its threshold to leaving the fan off. I'm not sure what would even...

    Offsets, Curves, And Overclocking, Oh My!

    I did this, but ONLY for my 4 best cores (according to Ryzen Master), after running 1,2,3 & 4 threads, I ran all threads as well, no rounding errors after several hours. There was no way I was going to do this for all 16 cores. At one point I was doing per core offsets and my 4 best were still...

    Offsets, Curves, And Overclocking, Oh My!

    Yeah, I think my 5950x is a golden chip for Zen 3 as well. I have PBO all core at -20; manually set my power limits to PPT: 200W | TDC: 180A | EDC: 160A and added FMax of 250Mhz. Single Core boosts to 5.25Ghz+ and all core gaming is about 4.8~4.9Ghz. Prime95 Blend test is 4.7Ghz and small...
