  • Some great guys at Fractal Gaming!
    I had one of their Fractal Prisma fans malfunction, and after exchanging couple emails they offered me a replacement.
    They've sent a new replacement fan to Japan all they way from Sweden.

    Thanks! I do appreciate that!
    Another example of shining customer support :)

    @phill You would love all the second hand parts shops definitely!
    I dont know if You noticed but those three ryzen cpus in the middle are 3950xs! Just like that , unused in a second hand shop!
    As for prices, beer in a convenience store(like off licence) costs £1.6 and in a restaurant around £3.
    those 3950xs cost £694 a pop, and thats with tax!
    I paid £758 upon release!

    I did see the prices, there's a few CPUs on that shelf I'd like to get my hands on!! :D :D Over here I think they are £680 at the moment, but if I could get one with a store called Currys, I'd get 10% off of the price, so it'll make it around £610 ish... A mate wants the 3900X so as 12 C 24T CPUs are a bit in the middle for me, I might well sell and grab a 3950X without too much thinking!! :D :D
    Run this through google translate...
    Sigh, the very thought of this beautiful liquid made from the very flesh of my homeland being used as cheap ass hand sanitizer, makes me cringe to no end.:(
    Good job, Japanese DIYers!:laugh:

    My father got home from the hospital from Jaw reconstruction surgery today from a badly broken jaw. On his "care list" was a lot of crap, hardest to find of all of it? Hand Sanitizer. Guess what's absolutely unattainable today?

    Fortunately, the local grocery had not been looted clean yet of disinfecting soap. Hopefully that is good enough.

    Whoever is hoarding sanitizer and isn't high risk should be ashamed.

    A panic reaction of masses unfortunately.
    People buying out toilet paper, because last week some dude started a panic posting on japanese social media that "we gonna run out of toilet paper"
    That was enough to empty out most of supermarkets.

    Then we have people hoarding stuff to sell it at high markup, those people she be punished no less!
    Sigh.

    Hope Your Father gets well soon :)

    Oh for sure it's a panic. If I caught this I'd be fine I'm sure. The issue is my father and other high risk people. I worry for them.

    No worries about that 295x2 setup. All this really needs is to run for 15 minutes and the GPUs melt to become a single 295x4 no problem!

    its gonna show up in two shops in tokyo this saturday.
    im going there first train to try my luck lol
    Is this real :confused:

    Not saying that 5000mhz is impossible, just that You wouldnt be able to take advantage of that speed anyways,right?

    ARK PC article even states its specifically optimised for high end x570 boards.
    EDIT:
    Its 2x8gb for $1200 :eek:

    The 5000 kit is real, I was asked to review them. However, they only work with a Ryzen 3600, and only those with a super solid memory controller. 1.5v is fine, for benching runs. This is not the kind of kit you run 24/7 anyways. They are high end toys for the home user to join in the hwbot fun.

    Well they state it works only with high end msi boards lol not mentioned which CPU (just vaguely a 3000 series).
    I mean what about the 3000 series IF speed limitation though? wasnt it like 3733mhz or something? after which performance tumbles down?
    sneekypeet
    sneekypeet
    They say it is best to keep IF at half memory speed for low latency. As to performance, my testing shows latency isnt everything
    Id love to build a rig with one of those crazy a$$ huanan/maxsun boards :laugh:
    This vid was very YES.
