    Click of death nightmare

    I'm having a very strange issue, A week ago my bran new 8TB WD HDD started doing the click of death, it quickly locked up my computer and I had to pull the drive to get it to boot again, I threw a backup drive in its place and surmised my new 8TB was a lemon and needed to go back to WD. Today I...

    3900x is hot and I need to cool her better.

    single core boost got to 4.25GHz vs 4.2GHz lol, you need water cooling to get a higher boost i think or exotic cool 0_o

    3900x is hot and I need to cool her better.

    Got the Noctua d15 mounted and it took my idle temps down by 20oC and max load temps by 10-15oC, it now peaks at 76oC under full load, 40 runs with intel burn test v2 holding all core boost at 4.0GHz, this is more then likly the best i will do for a pure air solution, I could get the temps down...

    3900x is hot and I need to cool her better.

    lowered my Vcore by a -0.035v offset and it is going to a average of 1.33v under all core load but is still super hot hitting 87oC on a cinabench run, I looked around and found a Noctua d15, it does not seem to have a bracket for AM4 so i will need to bust out the drill I guess..... ...

    3900x is hot and I need to cool her better.

    Will do a Vcore offset like you said, it does seem to be pushing alot a voltage to the CPU on default setting, I'm getting a average reported in CPUid of 1.44v

    3900x is hot and I need to cool her better.

    I just started getting a new 3900x system up, and I have noticed it is a hot CPU with the stock cooler, the wraith work great with the 2700x but this CPU is pushing much more power then that ever could and it shows, the CPU is idling at 60-66oC, hitting 70oC under light load and getting up to...

    The Future of Computing

    Were at a interesting time for CPU development, Silicon as we currently use it is getting to it's frequency limitations and with out a new material we may be stuck with a maximum of 4-5GHz for a long time, AMD's chiplet CPU's have shaken up a once extremely stable market of just wintel sparking...

    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    I think Intel is going to need to do something about AMD's chiplets, right now intel is stuck on monolithic chips designs and they are expensive and lower yield parts hence why intel charges more for there higher core parts, greed is not the main driver for the cost of a 12c 24t intel CPU...

    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    If we do get this for threadripper 3000 i really hope they have backwards compatibility atleast to the 32-48core, it would help out those who bought in to the platform when 16cores was the max, with that said I would not be supirsed if there was memory bandwidth limatations on the older MOBD's...

    AdoredTV pre Computex roundup Zen 2 leaked information

    Being that the full product line up is still not fully unveiled I would still hold some small hope out for 5GHz boost later on this year or next with that said 12C 24T at 3.8GHz base and 4.6GHz boost is nothing to blink at and not terribly far off (hopefully this part is X370 compatible) As for...

    Hit my old 1700 with some mean voltage by accident, need to know if it will be ok

    Dam dude, hopefully it does not degrade but i have it on a pretty light OC its 3.825GHz 1.30Vcore and 1.122Vsoc, I would trim the vcore down more but I dont have a load line calibration option so I can really change the way the MOBD gives the CPU a boost under load and i dont think it would be...
