    WTB After market cooler for reference 980 ti

    Go get an nzxt g12 bracket, and whatever aio will fit your case that's on sale. 120mm is fine, if you know your boost temps often you have to go bigger down the road.

    M/B for quiet itx build (ryzen 3rd gen): x570, B450, x470 or wait for B550?

    The point of me chiming in is for those Hers that haven't been thru the mini bios discovery yet to do some research rather than assume all is the same in 1 brand or chipset family.

    Quality of life perk. Check the higher end Asus bioses.

    M/B for quiet itx build (ryzen 3rd gen): x570, B450, x470 or wait for B550?

    This is a 2600 on a b450 tomahawk non Max. The mini bios on this board has static rpm pts when you set a fan to PWM and smart monitoring. I can change them thru Dragon Center. Specifically aio cooled gpu workaround was to run a mini pwm to dual pwm and set aio fan and gpu chipset fan to a...

    x570 or x670 for Zen 3 Build

    You just described my last 5 swaps in the past 2 years. Z270 - X299 - several B450 - current Sig I bench test bc even if nothing is wrong parts wise plumbing it back together is annoying. Specifically setting fan curves to headers I can't seem or if I'm air cooling getting my hand into tight...

    M/B for quiet itx build (ryzen 3rd gen): x570, B450, x470 or wait for B550?

    Yes but I've been having to run Dragon Center to adjust fan curves on their cut down bios. That irks me bc you don't need a fancy interface to manually punch in digits.

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra...and x570s...out of stock?

    Order from large suppliers in CA. That's where a lot of US offices for component vendors are located. They're close to Port of Los Angeles where a lot of initial container deliveries happen.

    x570 or x670 for Zen 3 Build

    I've had systems running on their boxes bc I can't be bothered to buy a test bench. Better than letting parts just sit when you can use the wait time to RMA items that might have issues.

    Anyone take a second look at their temps with the heat wave today?

    Yeah, my system is all air cooled right now so I noticed the noise over three days of 95f+ heat. Thinking about doing an open loop if Ampere 2.0 is a that and there's something I feel like playing a bunch.

    Accidentally took off bottom of a corsair h115i cooler

    Am4 bracket can be a little stiff. I loosen the outer set of screws, not the one holding the cold plate, to get the bracket on. Follow the above and it'll be fine. Buy some biocide if you wanna be paranoid about it.

    Hallelujah, praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition (X570 boards in stock but going fast)

    I have a feeling supply will be further disrupted, and prices will be going up.

    Having regrets on the Noctua NH-L9a-AM4 cooler

    Pop your front panel off and watch your temps dive. I'm running my define C naked in front bc it's a +10deg drop depending on fan rpm.

    New four bangers unavailable?

    I don't know what they're seeing in their sales data, but a $20-30 break on the low end in $ tiers is messed up. 1200af should have been launched at $65. 3300x being what it is blasted in all the launch PR should stay where it is. The 1600af I get why they raised the price, but seeing as...

    Waiting and finding what you want is so much better than dealing with clowns like:

    What is up with the used graphics card price market?

    I literally joked with a guy at a local chain pc outfit today. I was picking up a psu, he had a full build. It’s like the world decided there’s a run on cans of chili, a price gets set, people all look in the same places and somehow hypnotize themselves into thinking $5 is the right price for a...
