    SF750 issues on new Ryzen build

    You can cross ship, but Corsair is going to charge (not hold) ~$100. Once the old PSU is received they will refund the charge. Not the best PR but you can minimize downtime with a little inconvenience.

    PSA: Corsair Issues Recall for Recent SFX Power Supplies

    That's good to know, thanks!

    PSA: Corsair Issues Recall for Recent SFX Power Supplies

    Well this is going about as slow as I expected, not the best customer service experience. 6/4 - Filed RMA requests 6/8 - Corsair asks for proof of purchase and serial number. I thought I had provided that information in the initial RMA request. 6/10 - Corsair says they do not have a PSU for my...

    PSA: Corsair Issues Recall for Recent SFX Power Supplies

    That's completely understandable, but Corsair needs to stop charging credit/debit cards the moment a product is ordered. Corsair was days away from my filing a credit card charge back for an order that was going to be 30+ days late without any response from customer service. Every other...

    PSA: Corsair Issues Recall for Recent SFX Power Supplies

    Good for them to recall, but I just finished building three PCs with SF-series PSUs. Their order processing times are absolute shit right now so it'll probably be at least a month long wait to get a replacement PSU. EDIT: Yep, two of three PSUs are in the affected lots. Two recall requests...

    MSI X570 Prestige Creation -- Slow SATA Speeds?

    I don't know why, but after deleting the array and recreating it I'm up to 250MB/s+. In RAIDXpert2 those disks now show as having a "Type" of "Disk" instead of "Legacy". Maybe that was the issue. Restoring data from backup now. OK, down to the optical drive issue alone...

    MSI X570 Prestige Creation -- Slow SATA Speeds?

    Maybe. I'm also getting intermittent connectivity with the optical drive too. Sometimes it is there, sometimes it is not. EDIT: Nope, changed out the cables with SATA cables from my old rig (no issues there) and the speeds are the same.

    MSI X570 Prestige Creation -- Slow SATA Speeds?

    Well there's something going on, but I can't pinpoint it. An SSD attached to the chipset SATA ports is hitting 350MB/s no issue. I've turned off W10's indexing, there's no page file on that disk, and this is a fresh install that isn't doing any work yet. So I'm not sure what's going on. I...

    MSI X570 Prestige Creation -- Slow SATA Speeds?

    I just got Windows 10 installed on a new build, and the computer is busy importing a software RAID1 array (two dynamic disks) from my old rig. The task manager is reporting ~90MB/s read/write speeds (a finding confirmed by HD Tune). I'm pretty sure the resync process is just pure sequential...

    Denuvo says its new kernel-level anti-cheat driver is minimally invasive

    Wow, that's pretty shitty of Bethesda. I am vindictively hoping that Doom Eternal sales massively tank for good. I can't imagine this added spyware is compatible with GDPR so I really hope some pissed off EU citizen reports them. It would be sweet to see them hit with a penalty equal to 4% of...

    PCIe NVMe M.2 under GPU?

    Thanks for the inputs! With that info that's one less constraint to worry about went selecting a motherboard. Since the number of PCIe slots and the location of M.2's isn't a big concern, time to start over on looking for a motherboard. Lots of options to look at again.

    PCIe NVMe M.2 under GPU?

    OK, make sure I get a board with heatsinks on the M.2 drives. Noted. I also managed to move my ATSC tuner to my Linux machine last night, so now I do not need to worry about the number of available PCIe slots. That may really open up the number of board to look at. It is down to networking...

    PCIe NVMe M.2 under GPU?

    I am looking to upgrade my six-year old rig and replace my i7-4770K with either an i9-10900K or i7-10700K. I just upgraded to a triple slot eVGA RTX 2080 Super. Currently I am looking at three boards as they all have 2.5G+ Ethernet, dual Ethernet, the ability to run NVMe drives in RAID1 or...

    Walmart Selling Lots of Counterfeit Products

    That can be a problem too, if and when a vendor mingles inventory together. Amazon shipped me a counterfeit item once. Shipped and sold by them. To be fair they made it right very quickly.

    Scott Herkelman Confirms NVIDIA GPP Tactics

    If Nvidia has actually stated that HardOCP has been paid off the GPP article, and it's not actually true, at what point do lawyers get involved for libel claims?
