    AIr cool yes.. I'm running a DeepCool 620 on a 7950x3d, but it was cooling the higher TDP 7950x before that fine.

    Anyone know where to get a replacement AM5 cpu socket cover?

    I went to both of my Microcenters this weekend (both are about 15miles away in opposite directions, I love life :D) and neither than any to spare from their DIY departments. But thankfully I got this solved.. ended up 3d printing a cover. It's not a perfect clone but it fits properly and it'll...

    Adding 6 more TB of SSD space to my Rig

    I have both of these.. used them for video editing primarily.. however I'm now all SSD (no more spinners other than an external 20TB backup drive). On Amazon.. $75 Sabrent - 4 slot 2.5" enclosure but you are limited in height (no 5tb 15mm drives). I have 4 1TB SSDs in it. JBOD only, but you can...

    Anyone know where to get a replacement AM5 cpu socket cover?

    Either my google is horrible (it's quite possible) or they just don't exist. I need to RMA my x670e Crosshair Extreme but can't find the damn socket cover. I've saved every cover going back to my 775 boards but just can't find this one. I'm going to lose my shit if Asus refuses to service my...

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    Mine showed up last night - my Christmas gift from the wife - and it is immediately dead on arrival. Really pissed. Remote does nothing, no status indicator down by the little joystick, plugged into the computer not doing anything, extremely irritated. New in box from newegg. Something is...

    INNOCN 40C1R Ultrawide Monitor 40" WQHD 3440 x 1440p 144Hz Monitor AMD FreeSync Premium HDR400 21:9 $399 after $80 coupon applied

    I have one, it's nice. Wishlisted it back when it was $600, later got an alert and pounced when it dropped to $400 which now seems to be it's going rate. Flat no curve (personally not a fan of curved). Lots of useful art/features (adobe / srgb color temp presets, etc). 10bit @ RGB 4:4:4

    Christmas is coming and the kids are gimme gimme gimme. I have extra stuff laying around (no longer hackintoshing) I'd like to unload. Normally I'd ebay but I'm tired of their $hit fees. Venmo or Paypal, either is fine. Baltimore-ish/Howard County if anyone is local. Power Color RX 6900 XT...

    Going to try the Asrock 670E TaiChi.

    I'm running the Steel Legend.. have you updated to bios 1.07 yet? (1.03 out of the box for me) Fixed most of my annoyances. Very happy with this board.. I'm not an overclocker but this thing has been 100% stable with a 7950 and 128GB ddr5.

    7950x + 6900xt or 3090 FTW3?

    I have both a 5950x (6900xt) [workstation] and a 12900k (3090 FTW3) [rendering]. Built a 7950x workstation over the weekend to replace the 5950x workstation.

    My 12900K reaches 85°C during rendering at 22°C ambient temp.

    AIOs are not necessarily better in my experience.. but I'm not an overclocker or max performance enthusiast (workstation so stability is my game) so take with a grain of salt. If it helps.. I'm on my second 12900k. The first went to my son after it was clear it had definitely warped. For the...

    How do I stop my Mom from using her 120 GB SSD for pictures too instead of just Windows and Applications?

    My New SSD drive from BHPhoto appears to have been used before?

    B&H is legit. I've been there many times. Fantastic service, great people. It's where the NYC film industry shops. Doesn't get much more Pro than that.

    OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro

    Just picked up the TMobile 7t. Only dislikes are the crazy high standby drain. ie: I'll charge the freshly formatted phone - nothing personal added yet, unplug it, walk away for 8 hours (intentional non-scientific test), come back and it'll have used up 27-30% of the battery. And the system...

    Real Experience with QLC, TLC, MLC?

    I’m jinxing things now but I’ve never had an SSD die. Running about 15TB of SSD. Still have 3 120 GB OCZ Vertex Plus R2 (sata2) running fine. Have a 2tb 660p nvme that works fine. Bought the 2tb and 4tb Microns when those came out, have a few Crucials, a few Sandisk and a few ADATA. all work...

    [H]AWT! Intel 2TB NVME - 180$ - Microcenter In Store

    It probably ultimately is a non issue for my usage habits, but I just swapped my 2TB 660p for the 2TB Inland over endurance fears. I've been using a bootable USB-C -> NVME enclosure so I'm not really noticing much of a speed difference, but I've ordered a Thunderbolt 3 NVME enclosure which...

    WD 8TB Elements Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive $129 @ B&H

    I don't have a link (think it's only in store) but if you have a Costco membership, the Seagate 8TB Desktop Backup Plus Hub is $119 ($169 - $50). Just got one, my old 1.5TB backup drive was getting cramped.

    I am still using my iPad 2 from 2014. Are people upgrading iPads?

    iPad 12.9 pro here.. Full time music production and performer. I do nearly all of my scratch composition on my iPad before taking it to bigger hardware. Simple 4 channel audio interface.

    LG 48" OLED is coming

    49-50 really is the perfect size for a 4k desktop monitor. 43 strained me a bit, 55 required too much movement. Just went from a 43" Vizio to a 49" LG, on paper doesn't seem like much of an upgrade, but it practice - never been happier.

    I need a new case. 200mm PSU, external 5.25 options?

    Time for a new case. My current MATX cube looks great but it's pretty horrible for keeping things cool. I've definitely got too much crammed into too little a space. I haven't run into any stability issues (I don't OC tho) but I just don't like the temps I see. (ie, my 980s idle ~ 48C). I think...

    DDR3: I have 4x4GB, I need 4x8GB (z97 4790k)

    If it makes a difference, I'm not an overclocker. Can someone recommend 32GB (4x8) of DDR3 that would work in my system? Gigabyte Z97MX-Gaming 5, Intel i7 4790K, GTX 980 SLI I've done some searching and I've seen prices range everywhere from $100 to $300. Attaching a CPUZ report if it helps.. ty!
