    Post your Ryzen memory speeds!

    Doesn't the Crosshair VI have voltage for DRAM during POSTing? (Training Voltage I think it's called?) If so, bump that up to like 1.43V. It'll raise the DRAM voltage to that during POST but then bring it back to the 1.4V afterwards. Alternatively, have you tried increasing the CPU_NB (aka...

    What will be your go-to replacement for HardOCP.com

    This made me chuckle, thanks :) (not for any bad reason, no offense meant by it!)

    What will be your go-to replacement for HardOCP.com

    Oh, also something I think is worth mentioning regarding reviews, particularly due to the fact that A) Kyle personally endorsed the idea (was posted in his Goodbye thread), B) these Forums will still be remaining online... Considering that we all know the sort of content we look for in a review...

    What will be your go-to replacement for HardOCP.com

    I JUST edited my post, thinking maybe it was TweakTown... but now that you mention TechReport, you may be right.... Thanks :) Also, as someone that doesn't watch many youtube vids (mainly just AvE), I didn't know TechSpot == Hardware Unboxed, as I've seen their name in the recommendations a time...

    What will be your go-to replacement for HardOCP.com

    A site I had forgotten about until ilusio13 mentioned it, but what are the opinions about KitGuru.net? (NOTE: .com is one of those no-bueno sites that I wasn't prepared to let load/redirect me!) As I recall they do reviews, too. Also, TechSpot is the site that Kyle would post news about on the...

    Steam Is Getting a Redesigned Library and New Events Features

    Also please remove the Music player, VR, Integrated Browser etc etc etc etc, and call it "Steam Lite" for A) those of us who frankly don't give a shit or use that stuff, B) don't need a 130MB download when Steam updates for stuff they don't use. :) IOW: Modularize Steam FFS! I don't mind if you...

    What will be your go-to replacement for HardOCP.com

    While very possible, I fail to see the error(s) you're trying to point out? Grammatical and Abound are both words, and correctly spelled at that. Or are you implying improper placement (usage)? (I ask sincerely, as don't pretend to be any sort of English scholar! :p)

    Yea for HARDWARE REVIEWS I don't really know where to go? I wasn't sure if TPU was unbiased or not and acceptable to our standards, so if everyone agrees they're still relatively neutral, that's good to hear. :) In terms of just NEWS like the Front Page delivers.... Well, in the Goodbye...

    3Dfx Rampage Driver Testing 2019

    That is seriously impressive! I just figured it was going to be some low-budget vid with horrible CG of the card but, that looks like legitimate PCB and components on it! haha As such, I naturally expect those 6Ks to also be props, quality ones, but props nonetheless. Also for you young folks...

    Parents Blame Elementary School's Cell Tower after 4th Student Diagnosed with Cancer

    I'm not going to rule one way or the other about whether people can have a minor physical reaction (compared to cancer) like an allergy, in the presence of RF. Reasoning is two fold... First: People are photosensitive and can't go outside without having a severe reaction. (Not sure if lightbulbs...

    LG 48" OLED is coming

    Same reason every TV doesn't have AdaptiveSync would be my guess; cheaper. I can't imagine it's all that much cheaper in this instance, but apparently enough that they don't come with it. Given how many consoles there are in the world, of which only the Switch doesn't support it. Just like in...

    LG 48" OLED is coming

    My fear is that these models (the LG 48" OLED or the Samsung 43" QLED) are going to be priced for their market, and as such, will also lack some of the bells and whistles that make them appealing to us. Things I anticipate to be missing/considerably nerfed: HDR (lacking or half-assed), only...

    Parents Blame Elementary School's Cell Tower after 4th Student Diagnosed with Cancer

    For anyone who doesn't believe this, you can do a very simple experiment to find out yourself... :D Charge your phone to 100% and put it in a location with the best signal you can get (at least 80%). Leave it there overnight (lets say 8hrs) and check the battery level in the morning. Now the...

    Parents Blame Elementary School's Cell Tower after 4th Student Diagnosed with Cancer

    This gave me a good chuckle, thanks! :p Which, not because I think it's inaccurate, I don't doubt for a moment people would consider doing something like that... heh It was just the wording that got me, well and the mental image of a cow with exhaust pipe coming out its ass. haha You do realize...

    Paramount Is Urging Theaters to Show Ang Lee's New Sci-Fi Movie at 120 FPS

    What I've found weird is that movies at a higher frame rate are somehow visually awkward somehow (can't put my finger on it), yet watching 60FPS content on YouTube looks great and doesn't appear to have any Soap Opera effect to it at all. As far as the Hobbit goes, though (unrelated to frame...

    Quantum3D Mercury brick

    MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, EREK!!! lmao Kidding I had previously asked him if he was interested in looking at a friend's broken 3Dfx cards to see if he could fix them, but was just following up that it's mainly just his Rush (artifacting), and the Voodoo 1 may be unreparable since some of the pins...

    Intel Comet Lake Processors Could Pack 10 Cores

    Word is that Intel is moving their HQ to Minnesota, the "Land of 10,000 Lakes", and will debut their Ice Lake architecture sometime during the winter at an Ice Fishing Tournament at Lake of the Woods (probably because they'll, too, run hot and there will be all-you-can-pump chilled water beneath...

    Voodoo 5 6000 AGP

    Man that's.... huh... I could deal with that nonsense of not being sided with and being screwed out of some money on something (thankfully it was only $30 and while missing mounting hardware, at least is still a functional heatsink otherwise [silver lining, here])... But for them to then remove...

    Voodoo 5 6000 AGP

    Personally, a little of column A, a little of column B... Your reasons were valid, as it's really the only way I can think of to get genuine and unbiased offers (as in not offers from friends who may be willing to pay more). On the other hand... if you didn't have a 6K yet and had seen one pop...

    Quantum3D Mercury brick

    I thought the boards laid out that way were Daytona and VSA101 powered? Has my aging brain forgotten something, or do they just share a similar board design and otherwise unrelated? EDIT: Oh, also... Coincidentally my buddy and I were talking about Rampage a few days back and he didn't think...

    Quantum3D Mercury brick

    I wish that you could still find the bare VGA chips in massive bulk of V3 and VSA101, for dirt cheap, like you could years and years ago... With today's custom PCB services, it'd be super interesting to see if someone with the skills could cook up something like a V5 6K or a quad V3 :D Imagine...

    Voodoo 5 6000 AGP

    erek, Am I understanding correctly that the V5 6K up was your's and was simply you doing research with no intent to sell it? Just wanting to make sure I'm following based on what you've said since that's how it came across to me :P If it was, it would've sure been funny... My friend linked me...

    Passively Cooling the Intel i9-9900K

    Personally I think it's a great example to show that Intel is seriously pushing the tech beyond where it is designed to run, and this shows where it ought to be running. My 2 cents. And actually, friend's Celeron 333 Slot 1... I shit you not... was a freak of nature and ran without a heatsink...

    3D Realms' "Wrath: Aeon of Ruin" Is a 90s-Inspired Shooter Built on the Quake Engine

    Asus rolling out Agesa 0070 for Ryzen 3

    That is true. Which in conjunction with your last post highlighting those facts, it very well could be a fresh start. Instead of making it even more confusing by just calling "something-PI" they've opted to just go generic as illustrated by phatbx133 's post with "Combo AM4". What I find...

    BIOS updates for AM4 motherboards

    Just to slightly cross-post (cliff note version): I think these are just the 12nm APUs that were rumored to release in April, ahead of Intel's new parts. So this will afford them some TDP headroom for higher clocks to thwart the reported much faster GPU in those Intel parts.

    Asus rolling out Agesa 0070 for Ryzen 3

    I wouldn't be surprised if this isn't true Ryzen 3 (Zen2), but just APUs that are now 12nm instead of 14nm, as the rumor-mill was turning about new APUs in April to beat the upcoming Intel chips with a beefier iGPU. Not that it's bad news, as plenty of folk run those APUs! Hopefully we see some...

    EA Will Skip the E3 2019 Press Conference

    Yes, right, they're doing this because "it's what their player base wants", as in... everyone's so displeased with EA that they don't want them at E3... lol At least this way we'll not be lied to by a live person on stage when the game turns out different, as Darunion pointed out :shame: EDIT...

    Post your Ryzen memory speeds!

    Well I feel like 4hrs of AIDA64 Memory Stress Test and 4hrs of uninterrupted FO76 are pretty conclusive (with GPU fans below what I'd normally have it at, so it's probably 83C instead of 65-70C). MSI X370 Titanium w/ BIOS 1.J0 and a Ry 7 1700X, 2x8GB kit of originally 15-15-15-35 CPU @ 38.5x...

    Post your Ryzen memory speeds!

    There's only so many updates I can permit myself in one post :P New day, new tests. I bumped the voltage one notch last night to 1.125V on SoC, but since it was already late I just put the system to sleep. Been doing stress test today, and while I don't know what period of time is needed in...

    Huawei Launches a Lawsuit in Texas

    I presume this is them trying to jazz up "Microwave" connections? Or is there a little more to it... Either way, while I'm hopeful it'll come out in ~2yrs in my area... I know it won't due to population density :\ Same reason AT&T has DSL 1/5th a mile down the road (further away from town than...

    And who knows if it's the PSU that fried the board, or I'd be curious about it! I don't look for Q3D stuff anymore except once in a blue moon when my friend is looking for a 3Dfx card. They've always been super hard to find though. I do still have my 200SB (X-24, just has the headers for the...

    Nice score! I was going to joke about how perhaps the one you bought may have been my old card, but then I realized what I had was a 100SB (Dual V1) :P http://maxpain.lackeydom.net/Obsidian%20100SB%20Voodoo1.JPG I have a similar pride-and-joy, which was sparked by owning that 100SB... I have 2x...
