    Going to try the Asrock 670E TaiChi.

    Yeah I’m on the latest beta bios, but I expect it to be a while before they get things up to full speed. I’m not crying about the memory speed now it seems to bench well and to do everything I need. The only thing annoying me is the sound card, software etc.; and those micro stutters. Those...

    Going to try the Asrock 670E TaiChi.

    Got the parts and board. Everything going ok so far. Instaflash worked for updating bios prior to first boot. Took awhile though so if anyone is doing this don’t panic. Took a good 5 mins. Bios boot options are non existent as I can’t find them anyway. Still picked up my windows 11...

    Well I’m coming back home fellas.

    Yeah, as much as I’d love to ride the bleeding edge! I just can’t justify anything more than the 7600x now. I’ll probably upgrade to the 8c/16t vcache cpu when it arrives. So this is kinda a placeholder until then.

    Going to try the Asrock 670E TaiChi.

    I’ve been happy with my Asrock boards. Have had many now, and knock on wood; they’ve been great! I come from way back in the day. AMD K6-3 vs Intel pentium 2 days. I’ve probably owned 50+ Asus boards. Asus, while nice, can be sometimes overpriced IMO. Especially, the past 5 years...

    Well I’m coming back home fellas.

    I thought of saving money in buying a 5950x or a 12900k But Csgo seems to like the new Gen 4 Ryzen , and probably the new 13th GEN Intel! . I guess, it was a good excuse to build a new system lol, And I didn’t feel like waiting for Intel to come out

    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    Lol you’re not kidding! The 670E Tachi at $499-$20 combo-$20 rebate seems like a steal compared to Asus boards. I’ve had great luck with Asrock so hopefully they don’t let me down this time. As another user above noted. This platform should last a few generations of cpus. I’ve managed to...

    Going to try the Asrock 670E TaiChi.

    Expensive af. But I wanted to get into some features that this board had and figured why not. Pairing it with a 7600x for now, and will try to run 4x 16gb gskill pc6000 cas36 evo memory. Not sure how 4 sticks will clock. We’ll see. Can’t wait to get the parts. My daughter and son want...

    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    I’ve been holding off upgrading due to the insane markups on gpus and so so uplift over my 9900k. Zen4 or 13th gen intel made sense to me, as I want to build a new pc and give my current rig to my daughter who wants to play sea of the thieves with her dungeons and dragons friends. I Didn’t...

    Well I’m coming back home fellas.

    Ordered parts for a new Zen4 build. 7600x, asrock taichi 670e, gskill pc6000 cas 36 rev memory. Asrock 6800xt. Upgrading from 9900k@5ghz all cores. Ddr4@3600, evga 1080ti hybrid. The 7600x and 6800xt may be placeholders for a v cache chip if they are solid gains in what I need. May get a...

    Power Limits on B460M-DS3H Gigabyte Motherboard

    Learn how to install stuff yourself. You can build your next computer easy then. Stuff is NOT hard, if you have any common sense and patience to learn. Youtube will show you a TON. Just learn to stay grounded/shorted to your working area/parts etc.... That's my 2cents P.S. unless I...

    Buy new i9-9900 (non K) for 220 USD or save and wait for 10900k or 10700k

    For $220 I'd get the 9900 and a decent value board, and some sale ram. I'd slap it together and get 90+ % of the performance you'd get with a higher end Intel or AMD system, for a fraction of the cost. Will be a SIGNIFICANT leap from what you're running now! I'm cheap though! Was hardcore...

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    Wish the games I play used the AMD more effectively. I only play CSGO and DCS Combat Sim. Priority is frequency in these games and my Intel 8086k@5ghz is faster :(. Once AMD can match Intel in my games I'll jump ship, but I'm not going to spend $ on an "upgrade" and lose speed. I am very...

    AMD or Intel for my new build?

    eh, that 9400f will be ok. I'm sure you'll be happy. Can be paired with an elcheapo mobo, cheap ddr4 and you're gtg. No oc'ing but u know that. That said, people act like you can't game on AMD. At gaming resolution the difference in FPS is minimal and unless you are a pro gamer and...

    ASRock X570 Aqua

    IMO ASRock is what ASUS USED to be. Great oc and decent pricing. When Abit lunched it, ASUS started their slow crawl to insane pricing. I hope ASRock doesn’t repeat this trend. I’ve owned about 7 ASRock boards in the past 7-10 years and have had GREAT experiences with them. All were imo...

    Intel obliterates new Epyc in "answer" to flawed benchmark
