    HOT RYZEN 9 5950X TOO HOT?

    there is little difference between 5900X and 5950X. Surely not 10° if properly cooled.

    HOT RYZEN 9 5950X TOO HOT?

    Normal ? Using FS 2020 with my 5900X I'm not going over 70/71° :wtf: I don't think the 5950X is very different, temperature wise. do you remember the game you were playing when read 80° ? Because I never saw anything like that, playing quite a few different games.

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    It was Anandtech, quite a reliable source of informations. And considering the already quite ridiculous 10700K power consumption, I find those data coherent enough. Intel CPU are a good choice NOW, if you consider Comet Lake, because even if they are not very "energy effective" they have good...

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    What about the NDA for reviews ? I don’t believe in Alder Lake this year... In many other countries in Europe you can find a 5800X for less than 450€... After a quick look at 11700K power consumption let me know about the “good deal”. Intel good deal is on Comet lake: 10400 and 10700 are a...

    Zotac GeForce RTX 3080 AMP Holo

    I had for a while (a few days then I sold the FE). At stock the Zotac was faster in TimeSpy, superposition , far cry 5 and shadow of the tomb Raider. Not by much... but consistently. the issue with the Zotac are a not aggressive enough fan curve and temperatures (still slightly lower than FE).

    Zotac GeForce RTX 3080 AMP Holo

    it is impossible to compare the same card on different configurations (too many things could change the results) but in every benchmark I tried it "outperform" the FE ... it is quite strange. The only issue I have with the Zotac is the temperature, if you compare it to a TUF 3080 OC.

    Zotac GeForce RTX 3080 AMP Holo

    MSRP is the price for the FE, not a fixed price for AIBs. by the way I have the Holo AMP since December and it is fine, but hotter than many competitors (excluding the FE) due to the closed design of the backplate I think... paid 900€ for that...

    Intel Core i7-11700K "Rocket Lake" Shows Up on European Retailer for 469€

    I hope you enjoyed the short period Intel was reasonable and a good deal, with Comet Lake discounts. Just as I expected, the moment they think they have a competitive product again (Rocket lake) Intel is being ... Intel. 5800X price is ridiculous, and Intel is going to be even more ridiculous...
