    Reminiscing. It was nice when I had the time and energy to build stuff like this for freinds for fun. I want to build something simililar to this foot print for my 8 year old son. :)

    ACER Aspire 3 Ryzen 2200u with Samsung 860 EVO M.2

    I'm not sure how i got the numbers. I returned the Acer 3 because the display was terrible. I installed the same 860 EVO in a Thinkpad E485 with Ryzen 5 2500u and it was not able to see it. Wierd. I put a 970 EVO in the ThinkPad E485 and it sees it and works. Note the EVO 970 does not...

    ACER Aspire 3 Ryzen 2200u with Samsung 860 EVO M.2

    I got this notebook for under $300 on sale. I tried a samsung 970 EVO and it would not recognize it in the BIOS and when doing a clean install of Windows 10 no drive was found and I couldn't find any drivers to recognize it during install so I tried a 860 EVO M.2 and it was recognized in the...

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX & 2950X Unboxing @ [H]

    I see razors hidden in the design of the package and case. Subliminal messages of razors.... The era of hot rod muscle processors for the masses has arrived. Congratulations AMD and all the lucky people who will be having fun with these new processors.

    “The Last Jedi” Is the Most Divisive Star Wars Movie Between Fans and Critics

    I watched the first Star Wars in a theater when I was a kid and loved it. I remember waiting for what seemed like forever to get into a packed theater. This time around there was no line and the theater was less than half full. I thought The Last Jedi was amazing. Best Star Wars movie since...

    ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero Motherboard [Video]

    Very informative video. No talk about the VRM design. The VRM was briefly shown in the video. From the video. Informative VRM video.

    Why is AMD's Zen more efficient than intel's Core?

    R5 less impedance, less load, less heat, same IHS thermal transfer design. Should show improved electrical quality/continuity performance..... Even at 1080p gaming.

    Why is AMD's Zen more efficient than intel's Core?

    Better designed electrical circuitry for flow of electrons to switch 0s and 1s. Better IHS with gold to transfer heat and lower circuit resistance. I think the R5 series will perform even better than R7 core for core.

    AMD Ryzen 1700 on the Test Bench Under Water

    Looks like there is alot of room for improvement on Ryzen water block design. This is how I would design the block for IHS on R7 series. 1. Entire IHS needs to make contact with block. 2. Identify hot spots of IHS under load with infared camera and design liquid flow through input and...

    Ryzen Delid Cooling test: No Significant Improvement

    It might make a huge difference if the heat sink is saturated with heat and not able to transfer heat due to thermal transfer design. The heat sink though large had a very weak fan. Also his results did not capture the same conditions. He should have used exact same cpu with the exact same...

    Ryzen Delid Cooling test: No Significant Improvement

    Such a weak fan on that cooler he used. Bummer he was not able to mount a waterblock. More testing needed.

    AMD Ryzen 1700 on the Test Bench Under Water

    Nice results with the lap job. Dooes your water block make contact with the entire surface of the IHS?

    I think you should focus on the greatness of the 1700x and 1800x. Performance wise the 2600k is not in the same perfomance workstation class of the 1700x or the 1800x. I enjoy over clocking and I think the over clocking satisfaction may be greater on the 1700. AMD delivered a power house in...

    Ryzen CPU Temps

    The temps look bad. I really think they should have went with an easily deliddable design. Hopefully the R5 1600x series will be easiily deliddable. Even if 1600X is not deliddable I think it will run cooler and probably easier to over clock than 1700x or 1800x. I wish I would have bought...

    and...Intel is already dropping prices...

    The 6800k will drop alot more as the Ryzen R5 1600x release date approaches. You will probably pay a premium to get the latest and greatest Ryzen 1700 at release date...

    MSI X370 xPower VRM

    I hope MSI delivers the VRM goodness for AMD that they did for the Intel Xpower Titanium series. Good info on the Intel side of the MSI Xpower titanium series:

    MSI X370 xPower VRM

    I think the available photos may be proto types because the photos of the chokes I have seen don't have the Ti markings like the Intel MSI Titanium do. Best case situation for the high price I think it will be high end IR 60a VRM design with digital line and load settings for stability.

    Ryzen AM4 mobo's with only HDMI 1.4 are stupid

    Premature analysis. Give it some time. What I see so far is massive CPU processing ability for an incredible value.

    Buying Ryzen? Share w/ us your upcoming build!

    Patiently considering building a RYZEN rig....seems like a great value so far. I'm thinking... X300M+R5 1600x+VEGA flavor Nano+M.2. PCI 3.0x4 SSD+ 2x8GB I hope the VEGA generation of GPUs are priced right and offer many small format card designs.

    Tim Cook: "iOS Will Never Merge With OS X"

    Focused on two because they have a loyal market that will buy both "different" devices... While Apple can continue to make max profit goals they have no reason to change anything. I'm sure they will change their tune some day when they begin to fail or the competition begins to beat them.

    Silicon Lottery delidding....

    Guys buying into a chip that is a good conductor for over clocking will still require good cooling. Don't be fooled into thinking that you will not need to monitor temps on a delidded chip to maintain good temps. Thermal insulate material doesn't last. Eventually some new TIM will be needed...

    Silicon Lottery delidding....

    If you delidding and using exotic TIM materials then plan on doing some thermal paste adjustments. Delidding isn't for those that just want to use their system and go. Delidiing requires monitoring and occasional work to help CPU go fast and stay cool.
