    How long do you trust your PSU?

    This could be an electrical issue and we can't just take somebody's word for it that a 750 watt PSU is ok when it is not. Under powering something is a quick way to destroy it so, we need clear answers on this PSU issue. When they say "Required: 850 watt minimum" - they are NOT saying that a 750...

    How long do you trust your PSU?

    Yeah, when I use the power supply calculator I end up only barley getting to 600 watts (565w) - even with the new RX 6800 XT. I'm not an overclocker at all and I don't have a bunch of other stuff in my system. Pretty standard system. I'm currently using the Gigabyte X470 rev. 1.1 mobo and the...

    How long do you trust your PSU?

    Quick question, I still use my 8 year old Seasonic X Series X-750 PSU and have never had an issue with it. The issue now is that it's time for a new GPU as I suspect my Radeon RX 480 4g has seen better days so, I was looking into the RX 6800 XT series ... the reference cards recommend a 750...

    Navi "4k killer"

    Didn't Lisa Su or someone from AMD say big Navi was going to be a "4k killer"? The new XBox X will game at 4k 120fps in at least some selected titles so, why can't big Navi? I've got nutbags attacking me for even mentioning big Navi at 4k 120fps - what's up with that? Xbox Series X Graphics...

    AMD BIOS F50 vs F31 ???

    I like to wait a couple months sometimes to update the BIOS in case there are errors ... which seems to happen fairly often. Just like several between the F31 and the F50. So I'm still a bit unclear if I really should update to the F50 or not?

    AMD BIOS F50 vs F31 ???

    OK, so if I understand correctly I don't need BIOS F50 with "AMD AGESA 1.0.0.4 B" if I'm just using the 2700X CPU? If I upgrade to the 3xxx series then, I should update? I'm still using F31 BIOS

    AMD BIOS F50 vs F31 ???

    I agree. That's why I wanted to ask around first. If it's not worth the update then, I won't do it, which is why I'm still on F31 instead of F50. My reason was because of the "AMD AGESA 1.0.0.4 B" F31 BIOS is just AGESA 0.0.7.2 So, I don't know. I don't even know what AGESA is or what it...

    AMD BIOS F50 vs F31 ???

    I'm still using BIOS F31 from 2019/05/06 and not sure if I should update to F50 2019/11/27 or not? Should I or should I not? https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/X470-AORUS-GAMING-7-WIFI-rev-11/support#support-dl-bios I have the X470 AORUS GAMING 7 WIFI (rev. 1.1) and the 2700X CPU

    WiFi 6 wireless routers with WiFi 5 devices?

    Will wifi 5 devices work any better with a wifi 6 wireless router? Are there any benefits of updating to a wifi 6 router if all of your devices are still wifi 5? Apparently, no but, will the beam-forming thing work at least for a more reliable connection? It just doesn't seem like there are any...

    New Zen 2 Leak

    Yeah, I agree with you that Ryzen & X570 with DDR4 could be memory starved with dual channel DDR4. I'm not confused at all. Here's another video that backs me up saying early in the video at around 2 minutes that the chances of any releases at CES 2019 are zero - he says Computex in June at...

    The Radeon Technology Group (RTG) has received its first Zen 2 sample!

    When will AMD's Zen 2 and the X570 motherboards actually be available? Any potential delays? Guesstimated prices - relative to current prices or will there be a price premium? I'm not sure if I should wait for Zen 2 in spring of 2019 or just settle for an X470? I waited for the 9900k but it's...

    Zen 2 release date speculation

    The new AMD system sounds like it'll be sweet imho: "PCIe 4.0 allows for more devices – think NVMe SSDs – to share the same bus without draining the bandwidth pool as much. It also means the X570 motherboards released alongside the Zen 2 CPUs will be sufficiently different from the X470 boards...

    Zen 2 release date speculation

    January 9th is when AMD's CEO will give the keynote at CES ... maybe that's what you were thinking of? You guys are probably right, AMD will likely "milk Zen+ for a while longer to recoup their investment" but, it wouldn't bother me if they came out asap with the new AMD X570 motherboard, Zen...

    Best 4 or 5 port ethernet hubs in 2018 ???

    AMD Z490 chipset cancelled

    Well, it appears AMD duped Intel because Intel has the Z390 coming in the fall, apparently. So, will Intel's Z390 be worth anything at all? Any upgrades?

    AMD AM4 X470 Motherboards

    Ahh, just now realized that as if AMD's naming scheme wasn't juvenile enough by taking Intel's, AMD is naming it's new 490 chipset not the X490 but rather Z490 again - just like Intel. I despise AMD for that. It's as if a 7 year old did AMD's new naming scheme. Intel Z390 and AMD Z490...
