    A Clever Tesla Owner Is Using His Model S to Mine Cryptocurrency for Free

    Yeah, they were damn nice but obviously fake. One squeeze and you could... Wait, I've said too much.

    You've probably seen this but just in case here's basic recommendations from Google What 'parental controls' were requested, and who asked? Do they want full tracking of where the kids go on the internet? Chat history? Active...

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper Unboxing - Hilarity Ensues

    Boy, that chip install isn't going to be too unnerving. Thanks for the latest vid Kyle, I will be sure to have zero coffee and only one scotch before giving it a whirl.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper Packaging and Retail Dates Announced

    AMD FX-9800P in HP ENVY x360 - m6-ar004dx

    Good luck brave soldier. Following to see how it works out...that's some tough solder work. At a minimum find some old garbage and practice a bit.

    Wow, that packaging. Amazing that they all showed up fine. Looking forward to seeing the first rev of the case with all the LEDs.

    Yori: Ryzen 1800X - MSI X370 XPower Titanium - EVGA GTX 1080 TI 4K SLI

    Very nice build, love all the pictures of shiny things! "All motherboards should have THE RED BUTTON..." AGREED

    Project: TM-β - a home cluster build

    Definitely progress sooner than expected, very cool. Pretty good deal on all your experimental bits too. Run back and buy some more big AL sheets before they realize they're the same cost as the small ones. :) There's not much clearance between the tops of your power supplies and the bottom...

    New Ryzen chipset is out

    The short version is almost as much performance as standard Performance power plan (occasionally better) while still getting benefits of balanced power plan. I'll give it a whirl this weekend.

    Post your Ryzen memory speeds!

    I am running G.Skill Trident Z F4-3200C14D-16GTZR memory in my ASRock Taichi board (BIOS 2.00) at the rated 3200 speed and timings, with a 1700 CPU. I would look to the BIOS or RAM sticks themselves...if it were the IMC I would be hitting the same wall with the same memory kit. At work so I...

    Project: TM-β - a home cluster build

    Ahh, the good old days. I still have a few in a box that I just can't get rid of...every couple years I'll run across them and fire one up. Such noisy memories. Haha, famous last words. ;) At least you're not off to spend $2000 on water cooling parts?

    Quick and dirty Asrock Taichi x370 review/experience.

    Chew over at Xtremesystems has a 16GBx2 kit at 3200 on his Taichi. No guarantees of course but maybe what he's done can help you folks with 32gb kits. More details in the rest...

    Asrock x370 Taichi or Asus X370 ROG

    Agreed. If there was a significantly cheaper board that I wanted more than the Taichi and the only thing holding me back was the lack of a second M.2 slot that's a fine solution. There wasn't though. The Asus board was on my short list of options. It's also got a bunch more naitive USB ports...

    Asrock x370 Taichi or Asus X370 ROG

    I went Taichi. Two M.2 slots meant I could go complete cable free for my drives. Backups across the network mean I didn't need a lot of platters in the desktop itself but I didn't want just one drive. The Taichi also happens to be a little bit cheaper than the ASUS board ($50 less here), and...

    Where are the AM4 ITX boards?

    I think there should be a few more mATX boards out there. Almost no x370 boards, with B350 boards being the majority of what's available. Out of those boards the ASRock AB350M Pro4 looks to have the best power setup. Availability is, of course, constrained...

    Am I nuts? Biostar x370 mobo...

    I definitely will. It will be at least a week though as I got started tearing apart the garage before I got the board. Now I have to paint and organize everything before the bench is available again to put everything together. :(

    Am I nuts? Biostar x370 mobo...

    I decided to be patient. I've got enough boring but necessary projects to do as we moved in to a new house last fall and spring means it's time to work on the garage and landscaping. Yesterday the ASRock x370 Taichi showed up at the local Microcenter and the wife was nice enough to get get one...

    Tesla Model X Driver Blames Autopilot for Insane Collision with Semi-Truck

    Driver blames Tesla Autopilot for not avoiding a crash. Not the truck's fault for veering in to his lane, and not the driver's fault who wasn't watching the road at all, but Tesla's. This is why we can't have nice things.

    Am I nuts? Biostar x370 mobo...

    Doesn't sound like that much has changed. Not sure I want to count on their first AM4 attempt as being a higher end part that works well. Thanks for the feedback everyone.

    Am I nuts? Biostar x370 mobo...

    Just wondering what people thought about the BIOSTAR X370GT7 motherboard. I have yet to see any reviews or anyone mention they're using one in their Ryzen build. I haven't touched Biostar in, well, in a long time. I've been trying to wait for an Asrock Taichi or Gigabyte Gaming 5 but it's...

    That's the board I have been waiting for but my local Microcenter is still out of stock. I clicked like but I'll be honest...I am bitter and jealous. :D Please let us know what you think of the Taichi!

    The Gaming 7 has a BCLK chip, the Gaming 5 does not. From, a Gigabyte AX370 Gaming K7 thread, per an MSI rep.

    Gigabyte AX370 Gaming K7

    I haven't seen it as available anywhere yet. It didn't sell out on Newegg either...I never got an alert that it was ever available. I've been holding out for this one as well. If I see it pop up anywhere I'll holler.

    Naples CPU Xeon competitor!

    This is where the money is...I hope it's where AMD's focus has been for the last couple months with OEMs. I will forgive them for a teething issues on the desktop side if they've been busy getting their server architecture properly validated. If they can hit the ground running with Naples from...

    1800x and 1700x not worth over 1700

    What cooler came with the non-X 1700? I'm going to be building soon, starting out with the air. If the stock cooler is decent I will save the coin to put towards a full water setup at the end of the summer.

    HG Osmi Build

    That Asroc board has an M.2 slot on top of the motherboard. It's below the cpu socket, connector is just behind the USB3 header, so your cpu cooler should help keep things cool compared to a behind the board slot. Drop a Samsung 960 EVO in there for fast storage, keep your current SSD for...
