    Identifying Tower Heatsink?

    I know! I bought mine in December.. I looked last month I think and it was still there. Nan's has very little stock left it seems. Maybe we wont be getting anymore TR stuff? Bummer.

    Identifying Tower Heatsink?

    It would be. You can order the Bolt Though Kit from Amazon for like 12 bucks.. comes with everything you need to mount your TRUE to a modern CPU. I considered mounting mine up too, but I own TS140P and LGMRT so TRUE is not really needed.. but I wont sell it..

    Opinions, options for air cooling 5900x

    Le Grand Macho RT has been good to me. Used it on X5690, 3770K, 3600XT, and now my 5600X. I ran my 3770K and 3600XT under it passively cooled with no CPU fan on and it was fine for a couple of days. The 3770K was at 4500MHz. And it doesn't block your ram at all.

    Identifying Tower Heatsink?

    Do you just have the sink? Do you have any other components? Those guys used to work for Thermalright, and it almost looks like Thermalright's Bolt Though Kit might work for you. They are on Amazon. If anything it will give you everything you need to mount it. Not sure about the top clamp...

    AMD here I come?

    If it helps, just a few months ago I was using a 3770K that I ran between 4600-4800. Honestly.. it was fine. It was still fast.. but my 5600x on B550.. its ridiculous. I would love to buy a GPU to go with it :D

    Scratches on Noctua base, worth saving?

    That's odd.. my Thermalright coolers have not done this :D They do have some wear but nothing like that.. Just use it. Its still better than a DRP4. If you just want a new toy then sure why not.. As for TIM.. it probably doesn't matter much who you go with.

    How are Seasonic PSUs?

    I just picked up my first Seasonic a couple of weeks ago. A Prime GX-750. Very nice. I would recommend one. The cables are fantastic..

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    I bought a 5600X from Newegg the other day for retail. There was only 4 in stock when I saw it immediately hit Apple Pay lol.. Third party was selling for 200 above retail. I hope all of those shit bag stores die when the world goes back to normal.

    How to cool down ambient?

    You should look into 120x38s. I recommend them if you need to move a lot of air. Those quiet Noctuas just cannot compare. Neither can most other mainstream fans.

    It still bumps up against the glass a bit, but to be fair that card is quite girthy. I need a screw driver to get to the thumb screws :D

    Anyone used the Noctua A14 3000rpm industrials?

    Yeah not a single one on Amazon, wow! Looks like Nans is getting cut out? https://www.amazon.com/sp?_encoding=UTF8&asin=&isAmazonFulfilled=1&isCBA=&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&orderID=&protocol=current&seller=AECMV4Q5B05GL&sshmPath= A bunch of TR fans from Aliexpress are showing up on Amazon now.

    New AMD Ryzen™ Chipset Driver (2.13.27.501)

    I run a fixed clock and voltage, would this have any benefit to me? I don't have their drivers or Ryzen Master installed. I'm guessing no..

    ProSiphon Elite Results?

    I don't know if they are doing it intentionally. I'm not an engineer, nor do I have access to "numbers" but afaik they are having a tough time trying to scale the tech down do work with our puny desktop CPU's. Heat pipes are still pretty good for that.

    Stability tests for 10th gen 10900k/10850k?

    260w heheh. Impressive. I have to beat the piss out of mine to hit 120w lol. But it does it under 85 so.. I would say ramp your pump up for sure, and your fans too because 260w.. Just breathe on it a little and your in threadripper territory :D I used to think my old setup hated trees and...

    Best cpu air cooler for 3950x no oc + video work?

    When I read, I comprehend as well.. they taught me that when I was just a lil squirt. Corsair is junk, you should never recommend one lol. You need to relax man. Every time you come in here you get all huffy and puffy. Most of us here are not noobs, though some of us are.. and that's ok. Gotta...

    3600 to 5600x or 5800x

    Sounds like you'd probably be ok with the 5600x, but if you are like me you'd probably want something... more. So in that case I would keep the 5800x and sell the rest. And no, they are not the value they were before, but you are getting the performance.. for now. I think the low price was to...

    Best cpu air cooler for 3950x no oc + video work?

    For what it is the price it is awesome. Works great on my X5690 and 3770K. I tried it on my AM4 and it worked pretty good too. Only problem is on this board there is some interference with the closest dimm. I use all four so cant have that. A little too on Intel but not as hard as on this one. I...

    Unless he buys a True Spirit 140 Power through Amazon. Providing his case can swallow that massive thing.. Its a beast.

    Best cpu air cooler for 3950x no oc + video work?

    Nope, mostly because I could not care less about any Corsair product. I've had a couple, and I'm good. I have no proof of my claim. This is one of the rare times I used a YouTube video as reference. It was fairly detailed. I'm sure there are others. But hey, buy what you want.. whatever floats...

    Best cpu air cooler for 3950x no oc + video work?

    Sure, you can check out its awesomeness by watching the GN review. The craftsmanship that went into it :D For 50 bucks? Best bang for the buck would be a True Spirit 140 Power if you were looking for something that can keep up with a D15. Its pretty tall though, @ about 170mm.

    Whats the Difference please

    Oh ok, yeah that's a bit different from 35c as stated earlier. My 3770K @ stock with a big cooler runs ridiculously cool too.

    Anybody here still have a Abit board?

    I wish I had them still. I had an NF7-S and AN8 Fatal1ty.

    Best cpu air cooler for 3950x no oc + video work?

    Lucky day lol.. that's only one of the shittiest coolers ever made. Corsair used to want a hundred bucks for that POS. Big shocker there is 60% off now.

    Whats the Difference please

    Stock probably with all C states enabled. No heavy loads, kept in a basement :D

    Whats the Difference please

    Indeed. The difference between a big cooler and a little cooler is someone will have to turn their oc down in the summer and someone wont.. They might be a pain in the ass to work around sometimes, but they are worth it.

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    How old is your power supply? It looks like its almost time to replace it. I have a couple of old 850s that will dip down to 11.4v. Can only run X58 with X5690 @ stock. Gaming kinda iffy. Be careful.

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    I probably laughed more than I should have. It was fairly new when I was playing around with it like that. I did leave my D14 for it, so it wasn't horrible. Also was using my Panaflos on it before I took the stock fans out of the package, so a little better than stock performance :D But.. I...

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    I mostly used it in the top configuration, mounted in an R4. It did spend some time front mounted in a heavily modded Antec Sonata, and again front mounted in a Stacker STC-01. I had to be creative with both installs.. but it worked very well. Edit: Pump was always lower than the top of the rad..

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    I used an H100 with an X5690 when they were new. I got roughly 14-16 months of the performance that made me leave my D14. After 2.5 years I was not able to run some known good overclocks. after another year I had to drop clocks because cooling capacity had diminished greatly. After 3.5-4 years I...

    How many SSD drives have you purchased?

    I've bought maybe 9 or 10. I have 4 in use in my rig and my old one in my moms old Dell laptop. She lost her 1TB Toshiba HDD in exchange for a 120GB Intel 520. I paid like 265 for that drive.. I paid 150 for my 1TB SN750 lol. Things have come a long way. I've owned a 64GB G.Skill, it was their...

    The [H]ardforum video card all time power ranking poll nomination thread.

    I pondered a bit, and you know.. my 980 Classified still rips the shit out of 1080p. That thing was like 700USD in 2014 when it was released. Obviously you could do better, but 2014! I had a bunch of cards that are listed already.. but nothing newer than my 980.
