    SLI enabled AM4 boards and other AMD board questions

    the x470 gaming plus is a super cheap x470 board that actually uses a similar vrm design as the b450 tomahawk. both use 4+2 vrm but the tomahawk has better vrm heatsinks which would actually make it a better ryzen 7 overclocker than the gaming plus.

    Does the FGC Have a Favored Pocket Emulator

    mainly 2d fighters. had a dingoo canoo a few years back. the d-pad was decent but the emulators available for that handheld at the time didn't seem to allow you to configure your button layout. it made cps2 games a bitch to play.

    Does the FGC Have a Favored Pocket Emulator

    yeah familiar with the xd but i was looking specifically for one that fighting game people like. so the ability to play 3d isn't as important as the d-pad quality.

    1155 crossfire motherboard?

    socket 1155 lasted through several chipset iterations. so long as you see two pci-e 16 slots on the board, it likely supports cf. amd was much less strict with its lane speed criteria than nvidia. team green demanded a minimum of two 8x speed lanes ( plus a cash payout) to get sli...

    2700/2700X or Intel i7?

    i've recently dumped my skylake build for a ryzen 2600x, but in my research for an acceptable am4 board i'm finding that a lot of manufacturers are playing fast and loose with the voltage regulation design. unless i'm comfortable spending $200 on a board, it makes me question if i have an...

    Need help overclocking a CPU for a friend

    Need help overclocking a CPU for a friend

    if you had a q6700 that allowed you to increase the multi, you actually had the qx6700. the x signifying an extreme edition cpu. all other c2qs were multi locked. op needs to take some screenies of bios options and the actual model og the board. you couldn't copy and paste oc setting back...

    Anyone else not give a single hoot about overclocking

    dexvx, you're not wrong but you're not completely right either. the number cpus and prices within a product stack vary and fluctuate from generation to generation. amd x2 939 socket launched with 5 cpus priced from $300-1000. pentium d launched with 4 cpus from $150-600. core 2 duals...

    Anyone else not give a single hoot about overclocking

    gains use to be much more significant. t-bred 2200+@1.8ghz to 2.5ghz; pentium d 805@2.66ghz to 4.0ghz; core 2 e6300@1.86ghz to 3.2ghz; core 2 q6600@2.4ghz to 3.6ghz; i7 920@2.66ghz to 4.0ghz; i7 2600k@3.4ghz to 4.9ghz; i7 3930k@3.2ghz to 4.5ghz all were an eye-opening experiences and...

    Best deal on a 1151 right now?

    would be best to know what your absolute budget is. are you choosing that board because newegg is offering a $30 rebate? you'll also have to deal with cf that operates at 16/4 pci-e lane split.

    RX 550 vs A10-7890K APU (both with 512 sp)

    its absolutely a slower clocked hd 7750. i posted a review of the a10 7850k a few years ago. you can oc the gpu portion of the apu; i think i got it up to 900mhz paired with 2400mhz ddr3, but its still slower than a discrete hd 7750. the video is comparing a gcn 1.0 part to a gcn 4.0 part...

    Oldest CPU pairing with a 1070/1080 GTX?

    its not going to be a hard bottleneck. its about how much of your $500 gpu purchase will be experienced. digital foundry already has plenty of published videos that show a 2500k trailing an i5 6500 by at least 10% at 1080p while in some games the delta grows 20+ frames. that core 2 quad is...

    Atx Case for New Build

    your build doesnt appear to be very complicated. if you're not water cooling then i see no reason other than looks to go with the large thermaltake, corsair, or phanteks cases. the small thermaltake cases would suite you just fine. if you do intend to water cool then the more expensive cases...

    140mm fans typically move more air with less noise. 140mm fans were slowly beginning to supplant 120mm as the standard by which most cases support similar to how 120mm replaced 80mm, but since the explosion in popularity of all-in-one liquid coolers that used 120mm fans, 120mm fan ports remain...
