    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    My fave was probably the Diamond Viper V770 (Riva TNT2). Upgraded from a Riva128ZX which had image quality that was an atrocity. Following that I'd probably say the GeForce 9600GT. Was a pretty good bargain at the time.

    Can you install a Ryzen 3600 into a powered on computer socket without damaging it?

    Definitely lucky! I think the biggest risk of hot plugging in something that wasn't designed for it is the potential for CMOS latch-up which can be destructive.

    I bought one 45 minutes after cage posted it was showing as 99.95. Still not a bad price at 130 though.

    I down sized to RAIJINTEK STYX with Ryzen 1600

    I have the ITX version of this case (Metis plus) and I really like it. The little window fits a bit better with the smaller form factor. Kind of wish they'd update the Styx with either a larger window or solid aluminum.

    ASIC Miners and Cryptocurrency

    Yeah they can't catch a dedicated chip for mining but at least it wouldn't be useless when a hard fork happens. I haven't been keeping up on crypto mining much but I recall they do preform pretty well compared to GPU's. Just yeah.. cost those damn things are expensive :O

    Reviews for AMD’s APU Ryzen 2400G are in.

    Apparently "sale ends in 2 days" on those product pages. What a load of bollocks. Just noticed the Ryzen 2400G is sold out currently.

    A one year warranty seems kinda BS on a $1500 device. But I guess that's where they sell extended warranties.

    Enermax Revolution SFX 650W Power Supply Review @ [H]

    Though I do wonder what sort of setup in could pull near 650W in a SFF build. Not complaining at all mind you it's a good power supply at a fair price and never hurts to have a bit more wattage on tap.

    Ryzen 1700 Delid Video...Solder Baby

    Yeah I was just going by the video, it sorta looks like a seam halfway down the die though it's hard to tell under the left over solder. So that must mean their 4-core solution is either going to be a full 8-core with half disabled or it's own production run.

    Ryzen 1700 Delid Video...Solder Baby

    So it looks like the 8-core is a two chip solution? I'm not surprised but it's interesting. I suspected it would be.

    Ryzen 5 launching "soon"

    Sure hope not. Though I'm not considering an APU at this moment in time, if they do perform pretty well I'd like to see them this year. I too am more interested in either the R5's or the R3's. That six-core model is looking tempting.

    are you going to abandon intel for ryzen?

    Same here, I'm hoping to see some good ITX AM4 boards as I was looking to build a new small form factor gaming PC. I almost went with an i5-6600K but I figured I'd wait to see what Ryzen can offer in price/performance.

    Kabini test @Anandtech

    I bought the Athlon 5350 and the Asus AM1i-A (ITX) board a couple months back mostly to play around with. The BCLK on this board can be modified. Got it up to around 2.5Ghz before the PCI-E or iGPU started to freak. Would be fun if AMD released a K version of this CPU just for giggles...
