    You need to set an AVX offset as a safety measure. Hammering with prime isn't the same as finding the mean voltages btw synthetics and your real world workloads. Getting your voltages down might get you thermal headroom so your baked in boost...

    If you have CSM enabled (or set to auto, if applicable), then disable it.

    Do you have to be pegged 24/7? Adaptive voltage and real world clock thresholds are what I'd use after finding my boundaries. Have you considered an open loop if delidding and bare die cooling are on the table? If running pegged 24/7 was my...

    I wonder if errors like this are what shifted gpus by the case thru 3rd party sellers higher than msrp during the various mining crazes. I think nvidia should publicly put the smack down, MSI should scapegoat whoever let inventory shift, then we...

    Dish soap mixed with water applied around fitting and suspected areas will produce external bubbles for you to troubleshoot. Smell testing isn’t very effective.

    Cheapie lian li Lancool 215 accommodates a dh15 and a stupid long gpu. We need to see more gpu directed airflow in case design. I'm liking addressing air cooling concerns in affordable new cases. I don't like spending more to house my cooler...

    somebrains reacted to Zyklon808's post in the thread So.....who's buying a 3070? with Like Like.
    After being burnt on their absolute garbage GPUs 4 card generations in a row, it's safe to say any dedicated gpu AMD comes out with is going to be a pile of junk. They've not demonstrated even once that they should be continued to be considered a...

    somebrains replied to the thread Suggest a new Monitor for me.
    Acer X34S was announced. 3440x1440p NanoIPS 200hz Whatever newest bestest HDR implementation currently I'd keep an eye out to see what other brands use that LG panel since gpus have caught up.

    somebrains replied to the thread Star Wars: Squadrons.
    I'm watching the asusrog Squadrons stream and I'm not getting it at all. It's like your perspective is in the middle of a hampster wheel and you're shooting outwards at random clusters of targets. I'm not liking the BF esque resupply and repair spam.

    It's the Tuf bios that's diff. I swear I had pcie temp targeting on a z270-a prime, as well as on a z370 Maximus X.

    somebrains replied to the thread Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion.
    That’ll be hard to beat if the oob clocks are stupid high compared to other aib 3090. Also what case would you run that in assuming an aio cooled gpu also? Think about cramming a 280 for the cpu, 360 gpu, then enough intake to feed them assuming...

    They aren't my choice for setting up a wall of air either. Lancool 2 Mesh is my luck here unless OP is trying to cram 6+ ssds on top of those 2 hdds Then it starts to become compromise time if the hdds are current capacity and those ssds are all...

    If you're only going to have 2 mechanical hard drives I'll say that as much as I absolutely love Fractal Design cases, you probably don't need the R6 or Define 7 unless you're going with a big reservoir. I have 6 hard drives in my case and it...

    If you lose the gpu pwm signal than isn't everything basically taking pcie slot temp, or gpu sensor signal? I've done it the brute force way, targeting pcie slot in bios and modifying curve to keep gpu under 80/84/79 C. Whatever that particular...

    He's air cooling. I've done water cooled builds in them, kept sleeping on the Air model bc I didn't want to run without a front filter if I was doing an air cooled build. Chimney layout in either size = 2x140mm top exhaust, side fans fully...

    Did you like the O11 for air cooling? I'm not sure he can populate all of his drives in one. OP how many ssds = "a bunch"?

    Meshify/Define C is going to be tight with gpu clearance. I already had issues pre 30x0. Corsair is meh is layout and build quality. Phanteks P600s iirc is the evolve tooling, better to go with p500A when that releases. Lian Li Lancool 2 Mesh...

    There's no extra problems, just don't power off + use the correct firmware = golden.

    Set a static fan % in Afterburner, save it to a profile, use that profile vs whatever you are doing now. Compare results.

    U12s doesn't do as well as U14s/big dual fan coolers. As cited above it's fine for stock clocks on lower core ct cpus. 3900xt with PBO enabled isn't going to act like 8c or lower cpus. It's going to draw power like you're manually clocking 8c...
