    The core i9 12900K used 2.3x power than the Ryzen 5950x in official benchmark

    Allegedly the new flagship Intel used 2.3x more power than the 5950x in official benchmark, and the recently released AMD cache fixes were not installed. I'm not sure how reliable the article is, but if true, Intels new big dog CPU isn't quite as impressive as I thought it would be...

    Just ordered a 5900x and Asus Dark Hero VIII x570s

    It been quite some time sense I've used an AMD CPU. I believe my last one was the XP 3200 Barton core. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. My main concern is my Corsair RGB Vengeance PRO 32GB (16GBx2) kit and its compatibility. AMD cpus seem to prefer different modules than Intel...

    Apple TV 4K audio really sucks

    I own an Apple TV 4k and Nvidia Shield. Both are connected to my Onkyo TX-NR575 home theater setup 5.2.2. The apple TV audio quality is terrible on every app with the exception of content that passes through Dolby Atmos audio. I find myself turning up the volume quite a bit with most content and...

    Pioneer SP-T22A-LR Atmos Add-On speakers reverberating

    Im getting excessive reverberating with my Pioneer atmos add-ons. At times it sounds great, but other times the echo is repeated so many times its insane. This happens with both native Atmos content and other upscaled audio with Dolby Surround. Do I need to reduce the DB for these speakers or is...

    Is this safe?

    I was reading through this thread putting in a drain port on my system. | Overclockers Forums and one of the guys used one of these Stinger 2.5 gal. 1.75-Peak HP Compact Wet Dry Vac WD2025 at The Home Depot - Mobile to drain his loop. Is that a good idea or could it potentially damage your pump?
