    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    Same here. Though, they may be right. Things will get better in February or March.......of 2022.

    Time to retire my Silverstone TJ07?

    The Fractal cases would provide a worthy upgrade to your case. They have a lot of options for setups, though you may need to purchase extra parts if you need a lot of hard drive bays. I bought the Define 7 XL because it has two 5.25" bays for an optical drive and a Teac FD-505 dual floppy disk...

    5800X performance for $50 less?! Intel Rocket lake i7 11700K Review

    I did not know about the first m.2 slot not functioning with Comet Lake until I received the board and read the manual. If I use m.2 slots two or three, it disables things I need, such as SATA ports for the hard drive raid and the optical drive. I am stuck with only m.2 slot four at the moment...

    5800X performance for $50 less?! Intel Rocket lake i7 11700K Review

    I already have a 10700K and a Z590 motherboard. I already have an 11700K on pre-order (begrudgingly) so I can actually use the features of said motherboard. I thought the particular board I wanted would sale-out for a very long time like the 570X Dark Hero and 570X Strix-E did. Instead, the Z570...

    5800X performance for $50 less?! Intel Rocket lake i7 11700K Review

    Thanks. I probably will sell the 10700K. That is disappointing to read about SSD's in RAID 0. I have worked on PC's for about 25-years and I still feel like I know next to nothing.

    5800X performance for $50 less?! Intel Rocket lake i7 11700K Review

    I have the Asus Z590 Maximus Hero XIII in my computer currently. I doubt I could sell it for enough to purchase another 570X Strix-E much less a Dark Hero. I have a 10700K already. Unfortunately, I only have about $450 set aside. I really wanted to install the second Samsung 980 Pro I have and...

    5800X performance for $50 less?! Intel Rocket lake i7 11700K Review

    Whisky Tango Foxtrot! I am really, really regretting my purchase now. I am regretting giving that Asus 570X Strix-E to my nephew when I could not get a 5000 series Ryzen more so. I was just going to get the 11700K anyway because I have a nice Z590 board in hopes that it was close enough to the...

    Anandtech and Gamers Nexus 11700k Reviews

    I bought a couple 3800X's because they were $10 cheaper than the 3700X was at the time. I am just kicking myself for going Intel because it was available at a good price at the time when I could not get anything AMD for even close MSRP.

    Figures I am stuck with a crappy platform.

    Anyone have experience with Colorful (brand) motherboards? Should I use one versus an MSI Tomahawk board?

    I have had good experiences building systems with the Asus Prime X570-Pro. The only downside to them was the price. I thought they were about $50 too much. Sometimes you can find them on sale for about $220.

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    I doubt the 3080's will become readily available for a decent price. I do believe the 5900X's will become more available by that time. I was also tempted to buy a prebuilt system. My work has a deal with Dell so I thought about buying some cheaper system with a 3080 or 3090 in it. I would have...

    Can you install a Ryzen 3600 into a powered on computer socket without damaging it?

    Talk about lucky! I am amazed that the CPU and motherboard were unharmed by this. I do my best to remember to unplug the power supply before working-on computer components ever since I had a computer power-on while I was plugging in a graphics card. I bumped the power button and on came the...

    Rocket Lake-S prices revealed through retailers

    I pre-ordered the 11700K for about $400. Hopefully, it will arrive before March 30th. It seemed like a slightly better deal than a 5800X because I do not need to buy another motherboard. The 11900K does not seem worth the price just for the extra boost compared to the 11700K and 5900X.
