    What Paste Application Method do You Use in 2020?

    According to Stephan previously from The Verge, aren't you supposed to smear it into the pins, and then put a toothpaste size patty on top of the cpu? on a more serious note, I typically heat the syringe in hot water prior to application and couple it with another, move it back and forth...

    Whats your "go-to" TIM ?

    the last rig i tore down (sold to chiefjoe) was an i5-2600k that i built right when they launched, can't remember the day, i replaced the tim once back around 2013-2014 and when i took it down, it was still moist and tacky, but had obviously wicked from center to sides, probably due to the curve...

    Likeliness B450 will get support for Ryzen 4000?

    wasn't talking about pcie 4, im reffering to pcie 3.0 gen 4. b450 has pcie 3.0 gen 3, x570 bumps to pcie 3.0 gen 4. there were talks of enabling gen4 on b450 but amd blocked it from what ive read. atm there aren't really that many gpus that gain from it, but nvme drives do. IMO if i were to...

    Taming the beast (24-disk file server)

    I also converted a closet to fit a slide out 42u rack (i use rails on all of them since i can't easily get to the back of it. i installed this on the roof used a short run of 6" stove pipe to go from roof to the ceiling and put in a standard 6" ceiling duct for hvac, and then i put this inline...

    Whats your "go-to" TIM ?

    I've been using artic silver 5 for years. Finally my tube ran out and its time to get more, stick with as5 or go with something different? was looking at the noctua stuff, gelid, and others. Conductivity isn't a big deal, i DO NOT wanna go with liquid metal, prefer a standard paste type TIM...

    Likeliness B450 will get support for Ryzen 4000?

    even if they did, why would you want to. b450 isn't going to support pcie 3 gen 4, and that is one of the big pluses for the 3xxx series and up. at first it was said that b450 may get bios update to allow it on some models, but then amd said it wasn't gonna happen on b450 im looking forward to...

    Ryzen 5 2600 vs Ryzen 7 2700 for daily driver desktop

    Originally was only looking at the non-x models, but now that the price has really dropped I may go for the X, as far as the hsf is concerned, i've never used an oem heatsink for my desktops and probably never will. I'll stick to my trusty towers and downdrafts. as soon as i can source a solid...

    Checking in with my Ender3 pro

    modi123 have you updated the firmware to do mesh bed leveling? i took the touch probe off my mini-cnc and put it on my prusa and mesh leveled the bed and boy did it make a difference, i was kinda amazed. the bltouch probes work pretty good too, just need to disassemble and tighten them up a bit imo

    If you buy a cheap CD Key...

    i have bought the "oem" keys from the thread here before and never had any issues, i see them on newegg sometimes for 8 and they offer to send you a busted drive for 500 shipping if you want it (kinda shady) but its an oem key too, at least they mail you the sticker thing. but as far as the...

    What do we think of the Corsair 1000D?

    myself i would have preffered a bit more room between the board and the back panel for that size of a case. and maybe a horizontal itx tray option for the top. i've always wanted to put a low power mini-itx, or sbc in a system for monitoring and performance, maybe even link it to a small touch...

    Which would be Better suited

    i've been looking at something similar to that. are there any internal splitters that can do 10gb/s ? i haven't found any reasonable yet. took forever for me to decide on my board as well, was wanting a type-c 10gb port but it didn't work out that way if i need to add a pcie card to do it i...

    Ryzen 5 2600 vs Ryzen 7 2700 for daily driver desktop

    i was thinking the same thing. my editing rig has twin xeon's so this is more or less just my go to desk pc, will be used for web and stuff, minor coding, monitoring servers, nothing really user intensive, the only games i really play are LoL and WoW and they don't use much. Will be upgrading my...

    Ryzen 5 2600 vs Ryzen 7 2700 for daily driver desktop

    Re-building my daily driver desktop, will only be used for productivity apps, web, light coding, terminal, some very light video encoding (most of that is done on other rigs/servers) In all seriousness the 5/2600 would be sufficient, would there be any real advantage other than bragging to use...

    Ryzen 3 after 4 price speculation.

    yea the big change for the 3 series and x570 is the pcie gen 4 which really bumps bandwith, 4xxx will use same and from what ive read x570 will support the 4xxx chips. kinda waiting on the b550 or w/e its going to be

    Thermalright, where did the go?

    Probably going to end up going with Noctua or BeQuiet, but there is something to be said for the Ultra 120 extreme that i have, its a 6pipe cooler and tbh it hasn't failed me, been using it since my core2quad q6600, it survived that, to my i7-920, then to the i5-2500k, and i7-2600k, its been...

    so far the devices that seem to have the most issue are 2014 and earlier macbook airs, 2013 earlier pro's. and any unit with less than 8gb ram. If it still has 4gb ram i would use high sierra or mojave instead just for performance reasons. i've upgraded 100's since release and i wish they would...

    Building New Rig. Comments, Suggestions, Philosophy, Opinion, and Theoretical, all Welcomed!!

    In all my research in the b450 v x470 came down to a few things (x570 if ur going with the new chips) -Not going SLI so both choices are valid -Main difference is how they divide up the pcie lanes when it comes to the nvme sockets and the pcie slots -worst of all choices is the asus prime...

    Thoughts/suggestions for new build

    I was in the same boat during the planning phase of my build. I see you say 'mild-gaiming' which is about the same as me. Mine will be my daily driver desktop and will need to be solid. I decided to just pick up a used r5 2600 as the extra cores didn't really make that much diff in standard...
