    3090 extra 8pin power help (ghetto rig)

    This, plus you would want all 3 of those wires coming straight from the PSU, when in this case they're likely going to originate from a single wire, and PCI-E power wires are usually thicker than what you'd find going to a molex connector, to cope with the extra current that the device would be...

    RISC-V, the Linux of the chip world, is starting to produce technological breakthroughs

    Clock speed is largely irrelevant without taking IPC and architectural considerations into account, but I guess the marketing departments would have you think otherwise :).

    Netflix raises prices on standard and premium plans

    I'm with TheSlySyl , for a few reasons. Getting to pick and choose what services you want is nice, they're not THAT expensive unto themselves. If you're any sort of avid content consumer, you can easily afford to have more than one. I'm not sure about you but I don't like watching commercials...

    I'm not sure who these are supposed to market to, most PC enthusiasts don't want to live in a server closet or datacenter. I used to use some similarly profiled Panaflo fans back in the day, and even at the lowest possible RPM they were somewhat obnoxious due to motor humming. Even if their PWM...

    Anyone running a Ryzen 3 2200G? Does it run hot?

    I think the reason I originally brought this up is because I was using a Ryzen 5 1600 prior to the 2200G, they're both 65W TDP, but the 2200G seems to run a lot hotter in practice because of the nature of the GPU's power consumption.

    Any Ryzen 3 3200G fans out there?

    They would have a sweet performer with 7nm Zen / Navi and some HBM alongside it. Questionable cost effectiveness but there are some sweet form factor perks.

    Anyone running a Ryzen 3 2200G? Does it run hot?

    I checked the contact on the heatsink and it was perfect, so I'm not sure that's the culprit. I do have it in a fairly small case on a shelf in an entertainment center, and I had figured maybe it wasn't getting good airflow. The non-soldered IHS and Vega GPU seem like the biggest culprits...

    Anyone running a Ryzen 3 2200G? Does it run hot?

    Picked up one of these the other day to use in my HTPC, and the performance is pretty good despite some bugs I'm trying to work out, but I noticed it runs awfully hot. I had an extra Wraith Spire laying around, which is beefier than the Wraith Stealth that the 2200G comes with, so I figured it...
