    Question regarding DDR5 vs DDR4.

    From what I've seen on the subject, DDR4 is faster than DDR5 as the same speed and with current processors but there's not a lot out there in terms of real testing so take that with a grain of salt. As dasa mentioned, there is something to be said for future proofing or leaving an upgrade path...

    Overclocking Crucial Ballistix

    It runs fine with its DOCP profile of 16.18-18-39 3600. My mobo is the Asus Tuf x570 plus, seems fairly solid. Is the Ryzen DRAM calculator really so bad? Seen lots of people have goo results with it but then there's a bunch of people saying you shouldn't use it. I don't really feel like...

    Overclocking Crucial Ballistix

    Hey guys, I just picked up 4 sticks of Crucial BL2K8G36C16U4BL and I wanted to overclock them a bit. I was wondering if anyone knew the best stable settings for this memory with a Ryzen 3600X. I was going to use the Ryzen DRAM Calculator but I read a bunch of people saying not to use it.

    Memory dilemma

    Well I ended up ordering 2 sets of BL2K8G36C16U4BL. It's only $10 more than 2x16gb and since you can't tell if you're going to get dual rank or not(plus a lot of reviews saying they got single rank) I figured 4x8 will get me the same results plus I get to fill all the slots.

    Memory dilemma

    Thank you for the explanation, now I just have to try to snag one of these at a good price.

    Memory dilemma

    Thank you again. I've been noticing more people talking about dual-rank memory lately. From what I understand if you are only populating 2 slots then dual rank is better and if you are populating all 4 then single is better? Or is one always preferable over the other?

    Memory dilemma

    No worries, how does one go about spotting e-die? I wish manufacturers would include this as part of their specs.

    Memory dilemma

    Man, I wish. This is Canada, the land of getting ripped off. $400 most places here, newegg.ca has them from an OK price but I avoid Newegg like the plague, nothing but problems, terrible return policy, paid shipping. I'll keep an eye out for these though, thank you for the recommendation.

    Memory dilemma

    Thank you for the replies guys, So I ordered one of the Z version in the hopes of getting a B-Die but I don't think I did. Thaiphoon doesn't specify the die, again, though this is 2666U speed grade instead of the 2133P downbin of my B version. It passmark's a tiny bit faster but nothing that...

    Memory dilemma

    Hi guys, I have a bit of a memory dilemma. I want top upgrade to 32gb of ram, I currently have CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 on a Ryzen 3600X system. When I purchased it I didn't realize that there were two versions of this ram, the one I have and CMK16GX4M2Z3200C16. The Z version is supposed to always...

    Cannot get correct resolution on laptop

    Hey Guys, So I'm a bit puzzled with this, for some reason I cant get my laptop to show 1920x1080 as an option for the laptops native display. It works fine for secondary displays but for the native one it only shows 1366-768. The laptop is a HP Pavilion 15-n267ca, it is a dual GPU laptop...

    Sound Blaster Z or USB DAC/AMP

    Trying to decid weather to go for the SB-Z or a similarly priced DAC/AMP, From what I can gather the SB - Z has a Cirrus Logic 114db SNR DAC and 4556 amps. The SB-Z has a fiarly strong amp but a pretty bad impedance of 22ohm so I'm not sure if it's suitable for use with most headphones under...

    HyperX Cloud or Astro A40 for sound quality?

    I'm thinking I'm gonna go for the Cloud + SB Z

    HyperX Cloud or Astro A40 for sound quality?

    Thanks for the reply ThinJ, The A40 and A50 are identical from what I can gather, same driver and more or less the same can design apart from the A50 having the mixamp controls and battery crammed in there. It's strange that you say they sound weak while every review out there (and I think I've...
