    GELID Announces Glint ARGB M.2 SSD Cooler

    A thick block of plastic taking over half of the total heatsink's size is the last thing I want for cooling purposes. Maybe except plastic gpu backplates.

    GIGABYTE X570 AORUS Master OC Edition Pictured

    Still has chipset fan that will eventually fail instead of a larger passive heatsink.

    Memory sticks combination: 8+8+8+8 V.S. 8+8+16+16

    I'm using a desktop with 8x2 and 16x2 together for 48GB of ram, the problem is at the ram's rated speed of 3200mhz it won't boot, need to lower it to 2800ish and looser timings.

    Buying Used Mining Gpu?

    The biggest risk on cards running 24/7 isn't the gpu itself but the fans. Be prepared to swap them because they will fail after running near 100% for so long.

    HyperX Announces FURY DDR4 RGB Memory SKU Additions

    RGB won't fix the ram's garbage timings but will increase the cost, when will this fad die already?

    GIGABYTE Gives AMD X570 the Full Aorus Treatment: ITX to Xtreme

    I'm annoyed by the fact that the one with actual useful heatpipe/sink also features a massive useless shroud over the components.

    ASUS Shows Off its X570 Motherboard Lineup: ITX Included

    Instead of the stupid LEDs and insulating plastic shields, why nobody has yet to put a decent heatpipe chipset heatsink without moving parts? Passively cooling 15W is not the pinnacle of engineering.

    Colorful iGame GeForce GTX 1660 Ultra 6 GB

    Mostly empty too, they could make a small pcb and a pass through cooler like Fury Nitro.

    Intel Prepares a Mammoth $11 Billion Investment in Israel

    They certainly won't raise core count for a decade if they can get away with it.

    Colorful Announces GeForce RTX 2080 Sans Cooler for Waterblock Afficionados

    It should have a giant warning on the box requiring a cooler to use.

    Cooler-less GPU

    What do you mean I can't use my open fridge as an AC :roll:

    CES 2019: ASRock Launches DeskMini A300, World's First Ryzen APU-powered Mini STX PC

    Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 with 2700U. The throttle is mostly GPU, it can reach the specified 1300mhz but quickly dials back to 400mhz most of the times. Butter smooth gamplay at 1300 but choppy at 400. For 2D or low requirement games 400mhz is fine.

    CES 2019: ASRock Launches DeskMini A300, World's First Ryzen APU-powered Mini STX PC

    I bought a Ryzen laptop for that but it throttles like hell, this thing should run at full speed with a good 65w cooler.

    phenom 1090T x6 @ 60$ Worth it?

    Make sure your mobo supports AM3, 125w and hexa core, besides the fact that the chip itself doesn't support many newer instructions that modern games require.
