    [H]OT !!!! 5800X3D $279.65 Shipped , Newegg

    The difference from express 3 to 4 is almost unnoticeable except when bench marking. In some cases the difference is less than 1% unless you plan to put a 4090 on the system you likely won't notice.

    Inexpensive is subjective to a budget constraint that X570 generally doesn't fit.

    Anybody plan on grabbing one of the new RX7xxx Navi cards on launch?

    Likely seem under performant outta the gate until drivers mature to the new architecture. I'll wait for a used one as my 6900 still gets it done just fine.

    Upgraded from 1700x to 5600 and now mobo does not post

    From the bios ver. 5.3 notes for your board "*ASRock do NOT recommend updating this BIOS if you are going to use Pinnacle, Raven or Summit Ridge CPU on your system. *Before updating this BIOS, please also read the description in previous BIOS version." Basically you shouldn't have "Tested and...

    Update - Resolved - PC won't boot - sticks at "Preparing automatic Repair" - Booting from Windows DVD doesn't even work

    I don't know if your main board supports it or not but some of the higher end boards have Nvme self test in bios under Settings/Advanced/Nvme self test. I always keep a boot able memtest and Linux distro flash drive handy for testing this type issue as well.

    Update - Resolved - PC won't boot - sticks at "Preparing automatic Repair" - Booting from Windows DVD doesn't even work

    When attempting to boot with 2 Dimms they were placed in 2nd and 4th slots from the cpu socket? Try all 4 memory modules one at a time in mem slot 2. What code is the debug led stuck at?

    What would cause case fans to be powered by the HDMI cable in the GPU

    That thing needs a blow job in a bad way. Seriously I've seen dust bridge circuits before and that thing is a dirtball. Outside and air compressor for the blowout.

    Who here is keeping their 3 series and skipping 4 series nV cards?

    Spiderman would be awesome in VR and the VR controller interfaces are a natural for it but pancake mode just pales in comparison.

    AMD 7700X + 32G GSkill 5600 + Asus B650 Prime = 💩

    I've seen psu's do this before. The 12v rail regulators were crappin after being loaded for awhile. Check all psu outputs for proper voltages when it starts acting nuts.

    Anybody plan on grabbing one of the new RX7xxx Navi cards on launch?

    I run a Pimax 5K super 2560X1440 2 panels at 60 Hz in MSFS, 90 Hz in IL2 Sturmovik haven't tried DCS yet and may not. My 6900XT handles VR quite well with no stutter or pacing issues now. Total pixel count per frame is just under 4K pixel count. That's why I'm not really considering a new card...

    Anybody plan on grabbing one of the new RX7xxx Navi cards on launch?

    The latest and greatest is always nice if you can afford it but the go to budget ..... RDNA2 cards are still the price/performance king cards for the next year or so until stocks are depleted. I'll be holding onto my 6900 until some time in the next year or two when RDNA3 has become the budget...

    RX580 No power, is it game over ?

    Can't tell by the picture very well but the GPU die appears to be overheated and cracked. Fracture or just not cleaned really well? Clean it with rubbing alcohol and reinspect/retake the pic.

    Pimax Crystal: Pimax's answer to compete with Varjo Aero (Premium on the cheap....er)

    Yea for some time I had to hear what a POS the Pimax 5K super is from people in this forum because the edge to edge clarity is crap blah blah blah. The Pimax headsets are far from plug and play. They require some dedicated effort to maximize clarity and performance but the horizontal and...

    Yeah in a year or two when the next gen cards are ready to drop and prices aren't ignorant. This very well could be the new norm so plan accordingly.

    Ryzen 7000 Delidding Der8auer

    His 7950X gained 100Mhz with no additional power budget after delidding and dropped nearly 20C. I would like to see how high it could have gone with unleashing the power budget.

    Anyone “upgraded” from 5900X to 5800X3D for gaming?

    I switched from a 5900X to 5800X3D my flight sims in VR DX11 are much smoother. The low fps dips are much better in MSFS2020 and IL2 Sturmovik FB and overall better FPS. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the switch as I enjoy both sims in VR a lot more than before.
