    A question for my Pascal gamer friends

    I managed to snag a brand new 1080ti Gaming X for $400 because I sold my Nitro 5700XT and my R9 Fury just wasn't working right with the new drivers.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 is ~10% faster than RTX 3080

    If the 3080 FE increases CPU and RAM temps by about 15c depending on configuration. I wonder what the 3090 FE will do?

    Reusing Corsiar HX850 from 2015 due to shortage

    My EVGA 1000GQ is from 2016 and I am going to keep chugging along with it. Works perfect. I say just clean the unit out and keep using it. Inspect the caps while you are at it.

    VideoCardz: AMD to introduce Zen3 on October 8, Radeon RX 6000 series on October 28

    I hope they have an easy toggle for the 16 core model to swap to 8 cores on games that scale on 8 cores or less. ( Which is most) However there is one game out there that eats cores that just came out, I can't remember what that is. Man if Zen 3 ccx is indeed unified 8 cores this will be a...

    Silicone goo on a secondhand motherboard - big deal, or no?

    Yes, that same crap was on a supermicro P67 board I bought a long time so. Don't remove it... it doesn't come off unless you plan on damaging the motherboard

    Jensen Huang announces Ampere prices

    My only issue.. is it still has 8gb VRAM! It should have 10gb and the 3080 should have 12gb minimum. We really need to move on from 8gb in mid-high end GPUs. I know you can argue that the 3070 is a midrange card but its $500, not a midrange price.

    (Rumor) NVIDIA Ampere Launch Window Leak

    AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 20.8.3

    Its the silicon... I had one black screen once a day and the other never black screen ever, at the same time, on the same rig. These drivers on the other hand cause screen flicker when polling on MSI afterburner.

    Buying a CPU on eBay?

    Buying a CPU on eBay?

    Bent pins from poor packaging... someone saying its new but they just cleaned it really well and its defective and you will be SOL on the warranty. That actually happened to me with a 3800x, it had a faulty IMC that would intermittently not post unless RAM speed was dialed way below spec.

    X570 Chipset Fans...

    Honestly I think AMD pushed the active cooling mainly because these mobo makers use cheap thermal pads as a solution.

    X570 Chipset Fans...

    If you max out the IO on the chipset with all PCI-e gen 4 SSDs and GPUs then the fan may be required. That's the only guess I could give. Most of these fans are designed like laptop fans and are pretty durable for longevity as long as you keep it clean from dust.

    X570 Chipset Fans...

    I repasted my chipset fan on my MSI Gaming Edge and it doesn't run anymore, nor does it exceed 60c. 75c is when the fan kicks on. Never does anymore since a repaste.

    What is causing my GPUs to FRY!?

    Get a battery back up so your power is conditioned coming in from the receptacle. That would be my first step. The Battery backup will detect a fault better than any surge protector. Cheap insurance if you ask me.

    Accidentally took off bottom of a corsair h115i cooler

    Fill the lost water with distilled and call it a day. Run the AIO for 15 minutes outside of the case without it attached to the computer to make sure there are no leaks. Install and enjoy. Make sure you apply even pressure in a cross pattern when you reinstall the screws so the gasket seals...
