    Ice Giant ProSiphon - Cooling the 3900x

    So it appears the ProSiphon that kitguru reviewed is now available to buy with an estimated Q3 shipping date. I managed to nab 2 of them with the $19.99 lock-in and $100 purchase each. Shipping to Australia was unfortunately $100 but that's what I get for living in super-sized alcatraz in the...

    What air cooler to get for 3950x? I don't want water cooling.

    Thats a shame that looks are now such a large factor. I find myself rarely looking at my rigs while benchmarking/gaming/editing. My 3900x is stuffed away in my thermaltake wp200 with a nh-d15 using IC graphote 40×40mm pads. The fans it uses are EK f4 120mm on the cooler, not the noctua fans...

    What air cooler to get for 3950x? I don't want water cooling.

    Its odd how many people come in here to an air cooling suggestion thread and suggest AIO's. I think most of the people recommending water either have not experienced many, if any, failures or....love spending hours on a custom loop with draining and cleaning. In a few months I will post here...

    What air cooler to get for 3950x? I don't want water cooling.

    So far the data we have to compare TDP capability is this from kitguru ProSiphon 3990X Performance Now that is an engineering model and is still made of alluminium/alluminum, The first batch will be thinner and to compensate and provide similar to same heat dissipation the company has decided...

    Ryzen - Tweaks?

    If you want extra performance from your chip i suggest you dont run wallpaper engine (it dropped my max boost by 100mhz on my 3900x). Install process lasso, and .ove the permanent affinity for all non windows system processes and apps like steam etc... to the last chiplet or whichevet isnt...

    Will AMD Ever Beat Intel in Single Threaded Performance?

    Process Lasso allows you to set affinity that will either only be current or be permanent so when the application is started or detected as running the affinity you choose will be set. This however isn't true for all software as with cinebench it will still choose which threads it decides to...

    Ryzen - Tweaks?

    Totally different architecture, Without a cross CCX communication ryzen tears through the intel sku's in nearly all synthetics. It's not surprising that intel does not need "uber ram" to come out at that score. Plus you would hope their performance didn't tank after being stuck on 14nm for so...

    Ryzen - Tweaks?

    Make sure you're using the latest Ryzen 2 Chipset drivers, the 1usmus power plan (i found 1usmus universal settings is best for myself with gaming) as well as Process Lasso to set affinity of background apps to slower cores and threads. Process lasso also helps to induce performance mode just...

    Post your Ryzen memory speeds!

    Since switching OS drives my latency increased from being just a fresh windows install with drivers to my long-lived intel OS I used in my 8700k gaming rig, still decent though as my latency only increased by 1.4ns.

    Will AMD Ever Beat Intel in Single Threaded Performance?

    8700k 4.9Ghz Vs 3900X Stock Compared my 8700k to my 3900x, Surprised in certain scenarios my 3900x got equal or beat the 8700k. Ryzen's weakness remains in certain background app's that aren't optimized for the platform doing odd things to boost clocks when a crucial program is in the...

    Nvidia's started supporting FreeSync

    Bit of a news flash for you guys. A guy on reddit (the original AMD apu+Nvidia Gpu leaker) has updated his post with a link to another blokes post who has created a proper workaround for users with both AMD and Nvidia gpu's. Basically allows you to use an AMD gpu as the output with the green...

    Looking for ~40" 4k 60Hz monitor with freesync - any options besides wasabi?

    I'll offer some input, if it's the seiki 39" panel, they are worth a pretty penny due to zisworks offering modules that will run it at 4k 120hz. Also I have just upgraded to a samsung NU8500 55" curved TV. 9.3ms absolute delay when 1080p120 or 1440p120. It has freesync to boot as well for...
