    14nm demand is high, selling more expensive xeons with the dies that would go to the 10980xe line makes more sense. that said finally in the last 2 weeks retailers have gotten 10980xe deliveries. i got my 2nd this month. after getting a bad overclocker for my 1st in december. theres been NONE...

    Awesome deal (not) on an Intel core i9-7900X

    you cant. sellers are flat out lieing and mislabeling their adverts. it should be labelled defective/ for parts. or at the VERY least used. wiping off thermal paste doesn't in any world mean refurbished. and neither does adding an aftermarket IHS to a busted chip.

    Computer emergency, help requested

    this has been an AMD socket problem for over a decade. i cant fathom how this was ever allowed to be a final design. let alone fm2 am2 am3 am4. AMD and their MOBO partners should be embarrassed that potentially 1000$ motherboards supporting up to 750$ CPUs can give a customer such a disastrous...

    Hold out for 10900k, grab 10700, or just go with a discounted 9900K?

    seems we are finally getting closer to the new controllers and drives being available. the 980pro was supposed to launch back in late january, and then the world changed. a rumor from 2 weeks ago was availability by the end of summer/two months. so maybe as little as 6weeks away for the 980pro?

    Nvidia Warns Windows Gamers of Serious Graphics Driver Bugs

    appreciate it.. yea i try not to update. but when theres a major feature unrolled i do get tempted despite my better judgement. the 1809? i think version which rolled out DXR support was said to have alot of issues but i forced that update and didnt have any trouble. i guess i was foolish to...

    Nvidia Warns Windows Gamers of Serious Graphics Driver Bugs

    Intel insider claims it finally lost Apple because Skylake QA 'was abnormally bad'

    Hold out for 10900k, grab 10700, or just go with a discounted 9900K?

    intel cant make enough to fill orders/demand. they just cant make enough chips no matter what. as idiotincharge said above unless they can move production of more products to smaller nodes (or dedicate more foundries to 14nm, which they wont do) they are gonna continue to have poor availability...

    they cant get 10900Ks and 10980XEs out the door, and you think theyl be able to get two desktop launches done in 6months? LOL no way in hell. i know the rumors. its not happening.

    Hold out for 10900k, grab 10700, or just go with a discounted 9900K?

    Please do. I've bought bottom intel bins from SILlotto.. they can still do higher than their rated clock, they just need more voltage. If he hadn't said it was for gaming and didn't appear to care about K or non, I wouldnt have said anything. 4.9 vs 5.0ghz isn't gonna be the difference for 144hz...

    silicon lotto has 10700Ks for damn near retail rite now. and has for a few days. unless you have fast fingers 10900Ks or whatnot will be hard to comeby for a while. id get one of the 10700Ks and pick a motherboard carefully. (the MSI unify ATX is my safe recommendation) hard to go wrong with...

    Which B550 board?

    id say spend the extra 20bucks and get the MSI. looks a bit better featured. unless you have a need for the 3rd x16 sized pcie slot the aorus has. 6sata ports VS 4sata ports. the MSI board has debug LEDs incase you have boot problems, makes life alot easier when you are trying to trouble shoot...

    RTX 2080 ti, cooler suddenly loud

    edited my post while you replied. i think you need to hound ASUS for a RMA and tell them exactly what the problem is.. i was having a hard time understanding myself until your last post. something is wrong on a more serious level than a typical end user should be expected to fix. call them, be...

    RTX 2080 ti, cooler suddenly loud

    im not terribly familiar with asus gpu/fan software.. i use evga PX! and you can use a slider to set the fan speed to whatever you want. and control them individually. if your fans are running too loud, set the fan speed yourself. (it looks like you can with that asus software by clicking "user...

    RTX 2080 ti, cooler suddenly loud

    just set the fans to fixed 40% fixed and be done with it. if your temps are fine...and they are... 60-65C is very good for an aircooler dont worry about it if its something wrong with the sensor swapping the cooler wont fix it.

    i7-8086k $800?

    its the typical bullshit 3rd party seller scam for old EOL products... you can find sealed 8086Ks for 400 USD or lower on ebay. just look every few days. and even that price is over valued. but 800$? thats not even worth talking about.

    Jeez 10900k really?

    yea i think thats all disinformation, and a farce to sell z490 motherboards and I5s to people hoping to drop in a better chip soon down the road. i dont buy it for a second in regards to intel and rocket lake. they cant even supply 10th gen in enough volume. most retailers have had either ONE or...

    inexpensive X79 motherboard?

    i would scour ebay or the usual suspect forum marketplaces for someone wanting to sell a parted out older system. actual x79 chipsets and cheap arent two phrases that go together frequently. the flood of inexpensive xeons ensured that x79 will always command a premium
