    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Beats Intel Core i9-10980XE by 24% in 3DMark Physics

    doesn’t matter really. It was off topic anyway. Thread is about 10980xe score vs the Ryzen that beat it. Not the talking points of HEDT over clocking.

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Beats Intel Core i9-10980XE by 24% in 3DMark Physics

    you try to make the post sound like I’m some kind of consumer peasant and then proceed to weird flex by attempting to explain to me how modifications to your CPU presumably make your usage somehow mean something more compared to mine? Like what? are your delids and OCs supposed to impress me...

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Beats Intel Core i9-10980XE by 24% in 3DMark Physics

    And you can count me. I dont OC my 7980xe at all. None of the forum members really attacked me when they came out. I saw some others get the rope though. I certainly didnt buy this chip for its OC potential (doesnt really have any) or its clock rate (2.6 at its base 3ish most days with most...

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Beats Intel Core i9-10980XE by 24% in 3DMark Physics

    idk, but that might even play into my point. I like get the Intel hate, and while I personally have nothing against AMD (having 2 generations of ryzen in my house) I find it a bit hard to believe, not that it couldn't beat the new chip, but that it is only so marginally better than my score on a...

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Beats Intel Core i9-10980XE by 24% in 3DMark Physics

    Forgive me for being naive, but I'm not sure if this is a play on how bad PC perspective is, or if you actually missed it in the first post.

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Beats Intel Core i9-10980XE by 24% in 3DMark Physics

    Hm, I take this with a grain of salt. I'm not saying its wrong, and the differences between the new and old arcs I PERSONALLY find negligible to justify upgrade. But something about this seems off. My 7980xe only boosts to 4.2 (In the test it determined max freq was only a little over 4ghz mind...

    bitlocker

    So you did the following? >diskpart > list disk > sel disk X (where X is your bitlocker drive number) >clean Completed isn't a valid message in diskpart. Do you have a screen shot?

    bitlocker

    what does that mean? What error are you getting. I wipe my bitlocker drives with clean.

    Definition of Taobao/Chinese gpus

    No one reported it, and it didn’t get enough traffic to get seen. Looks alike all the people complaining about it just posted in it. Makes as bout as much sense as the thread itself.

    Need some AMP DAC recommendations

    Hi, my set of Audio Technicas are starting to break. I really love them, but I was going to take this chance to jump on another manu to try. This time around I was going to go high Ohm, which leaves me without a way to properly drive them. I was thinking about giving tube driven a shot. Does...

    Digital Artist

    Odd I’m surprised that system can’t keep up. I honestly can’t say a better machine will help you. I would have put this in gen software so the digital guys could take a look. if your itching to upgrade your proposed system will be fine.

    How do you mount the rad to top of the case with fan?

    can you try it case-rad-fan? the fans should mount to the other side of the rad if you have the screws.

    How do you mount the rad to top of the case with fan?

    In this cases case (lol) I think you are supposed to take the fans out, mount the rad then mount fans to rad.
