    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    The 5800x was in stock on Amazon for several hours today. I think this bodes well compared to 30 second "IN STOCK" times we're used to seeing. Actually ANT ONLINE has the 5800x still in stock right now for $479.98

    Optimizing Threadripper ? thread! How to get the most out of it

    I have a last gen Threadripper 2950x. I wanted to do a custom water loop on the CPU. I mistakenly ordered a 360 copper radiator instead of a 420 so I just kept both of them to cool the CPU and anything else I want to add later. These builds are complicated and I did not like the idea of cheaping...

    What ya using your 1x slots for?

    I use an Asus Xonar Essence STX in an x1 slot My Mellanox Connectx-2 is a PCI-Epress x8 fiber card. I do not think you are going to find 10Gbit network cards using an x1 slot.

    Where is this urgency for new GPUs coming from?

    Maybe so.... I tried mining for a while in 2017 before the bottom fell out. There could be some teeth to what is about to happen here in December concerning Ethereum. When Ethereum 2.0 happens it becomes ASIC resistent again. It has been shown the RTX 3090 does about 122M/H mining Ethereum. I...

    Where is this urgency for new GPUs coming from?

    Well, I imagine if NVidia sold $175 million of 30 series GPUs to cryptominers, that could make cards more difficult to get. Ya think???;) https://wccftech.com/nvidia-allegedly-sold-175-million-worth-ampere-geforce-rtx-30-gpus-to-miners/...

    DDR4 for Zen 3 build - Mhz vs CAS latency?

    I just recently upped to 4 sticks of Trident Z Neo 14-14-14-34 (64GB) I've been a die hard G.Skill buyer for at least 10 years. I've seen more issues with other RAM brands than G.Skill including Corsair and I used to buy Corsair myself...

    Did Nvidia's 30x0 launch diminish likelihood you will wait for AMD big Navi?

    Yes, I had stopped looking after a week as the urge wore off. I got on with life. Then those devils at eVGA told me I could buy one of theirs. That's okay. I have one in hand. I'm not going to fuss about 2 top cards trading the leader board back on forth on various benchmarks. That just tells...

    Did Nvidia's 30x0 launch diminish likelihood you will wait for AMD big Navi?

    Having gotten my 3090 last week I suppose this POLL is moot. As AMD release day nears I cannot help but fear being a bit butthurt if the 6900XT just kills. If so, still... good for them. I'm glad AMD has their head in the game. Competition benefits us all.

    Who is buying a 3090?

    I finally got around to installing it after 3 days. It's thicker than a 1080ti Strix but not any longer.

    Who is buying a 3090?

    Others have said it and I find truth in it: "Don't buy the first major revision of nVidia tech". The second generation will have many bugs worked out and usually on a smaller lithography. RTX 2080 ti for me just wasn't leaps and bounds faster than the 1080ti Strix so I skipped RTX 20xx...

    **The state of GPU's and their purchasability** This is a rant post, anyone else agree with me AFTER you read this?

    I showed up for the very first time for the RTX 3080 launch to see how things went down. I almost NEVER buy stuff the day of launch. I skipped the 2080 Ti RTX cards because they cost so much more for not that much more performance than my STRIX 1080ti. Somehow I got sucked in this time. I had a...

    Who is buying a 3090?

    After the launch day debacle of both the 3080 and 3090, I gave up trying to get one after a week and got on with my life. Then suddenly today after lunch I get an email from EVGA saying they had a 3090 in stock with my name on it reserved for 8 hours. I had made the decision I either wanted the...

    How much would you pay over MSRP for a 3080/3090?

    After a few days of checking the urge and desire wore off. Now, frankly I've just got a resentment and a bad taste over this whole affair. Under NO circumstances will I buy one off eBay. I want those who sucked up all available cards to hang on to them for a very very VERY long time. Rot in hell...

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Overclocked To 5 GHz Across All 16 Cores On LN2

    It seems like just last October I built a custom liquid cooled Threadripper 2950x system. Now 8 months later I can get all those cores and better IPC for hundreds less? What kind of crazy world do we live in? It does feel like most days that I have "enough". I have enough threads, enough...

    NVIDIA Stock Tanks 15% as the Company Cuts Q4 2019 Financial Guidance

    Nvidia stock and many companies who were overvalued due to the cryptocurrency boom have merely seen a correction to realistic prices. They certainly have not helped themselves by doubling TOTL card prices for their remaining non crypto core customer base...Gamers. And after all this... RMAs and...

    NVIDIA on the Cause of RTX 2080 Series Card Failures

    I feel bad for those stuck with such pricey ticking time bombs. To say the least my enthusiasm and confidence would be really low about now. In fact if I owned one of these I might be tempted to return it for a refund until these issues get identified and solved. I used to be all over bleeding...

    Windows 10 Version 1809 Is Getting a Re-Release Today

    Some MS update last night (patch Tuesday) turned my 2 week old Threadripper machine into a worthless bluescreened pile of unbootable crap overnight. I forgot to turn Windows updates off.

    Backblaze Hard Drive Stats for 2017

    I stopped buying Seagate drives like 5 years ago when I threw 10 of them in the trash that came out of my Primary and Backup media servers. They had tons of surface errors and media defects. Many were under warranty but what good is that when Seagate sends me someone else's defective used drive...

    GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-SOC FORCE Motherboard Review @ [H]

    I have long since lost all faith in any and all Gigabyte products. Many of their boards I have worked with are plagued with memory issues dating back to the Z77 chipset boards (awful 4 DIMM support). They just cannot seem to build a decent motherboard any longer. They really should fire their...

    Seagate Now Shipping World's Slimmest And Fastest 2TB Mobile HDD

    I have been "burned" on 6 of the last 7 models of Seagate drives. That is good enough for me to not buy them anymore.
